Hello, and thanks for stopping to read my blog. With summer well on the way and the weather generally being good, I’ve been spending a lot of time in the garden. Not necessarily gardening, I must say, but playing with Beau and trying to do yoga – more on that later.
June has felt like a very busy month, and I think a lot of that is the fact that Beau – who, for those who don’t know me, is my little boy – has just turned nine-months-old and has found his feet! Well almost… its more his hands and knees, but boy can he move at a pace! The other big news for him is that he has nearly four new teeth. I never knew that milk teeth caused so much pain for the poor wee soles. There have been quite a few sleepless nights, but I think we are through this round… just about. We can really see his personality coming through too, and at this stage his sense of determination is very clear. He definitely gets that from me, and he gives us endless joy with his constant cheeky smiles, big belly laughs and fits of giggles.
I also wanted to share some of my new fashion inspirations and finds, plus introduce you to our fabulous new stylist to the presenters, Stine Wintlev. You may have already seen the recent fashion shoot with our Katy and Alex on the QVC website. Its great to have Stine on board, as she comes with a wealth of experience and knowledge – not to mention she is great fun! To find out more, take a look at her recent post to see the fashion shoot photos.
I don’t know many people who don’t like a good deal, and this month QVC have pulled out all the stops with vouchers, interest-free instalments and sales across fashion and beauty. Click on this link for the Elemis and Ultrasun Easy Pay links and information. Remember Easy Pay is always interest-free! These ones will run until June 30th, so don’t miss out on some of your favourites. One of mine is this one. I used the Plumping Pillow Night Cream through my pregnancy and loved how my skin felt.
For those of you love fashion and sales, then you can take part in our Summer Sale and use the code SALE2Z from the 20th – 26th June – please check the web for T&Cs.
I’d love to share with you a few of my current favourite finds. The first was the recent WynneLayers Today’s Special Value – the crepe dolman shirt dress, which comes in five wonderful shades (some are on waitlist!)
It is an over-sized look and has been designed to flow rather than hug the figure. To show more of your silhouette, you could wear leggings or cropped slim trousers and a WynneLayers vest. I think it’d work with a long petticoat underneath too. I’ve styled mine with bare legs helped by Isle of Paradise self tan and Vionic high tops.
The next one is a Kim & Co TSV on 25th June. This two-piece sleeveless tunic and elbow-length sleeve top (look out for item number 183874) comes in Bright Pink, Oyster, Melon, Navy, Lemon Lime and Yellow. This is going to be an absolute go-to everyday piece. And with all Kim’s pieces, you know it’ll wear and wash well, those fresh summer colours won’t fade. They will be available from 9pm next Wednesday.
My final outfit felt right for a week that needed a bit of energy and zest. I am a firm believer that wearing colour can help lift your spirits. So I went all out and wore yellow with leopard print. How can that not put a smile on your face? I know wearing trainers with skirts is not everyone’s cup of tea, but I really like the look and it is really practical.

On one final note, I mentioned yoga at at the beginning of my blog. I have tried to do this with Beau, but I think “doing yoga” is a term I should use very lightly! We did about four mins before I had to retrieve him from clambering on the printer we have in the living room. I’ll keep trying…
Until next time, take the very best care of yourselves.
