Hello and thanks for stopping by my blog today. If it’s your first time reading my blogs, welcome! I usually like to write about fashion, beauty and my family life with my son Beau, my partner Elliot and our combined family.
For the past two weeks, I’ve been on holiday at home. It’s been lovely to take my foot off the gas, spend all my time with little Beau, do some gardening and enjoy trying some new fun beauty offers from Amanda Harrington, super sunless tan expert, OPI nails and Liz Earle. (These updates are also watchable on my Instagram, @eilidhnairntv.)
We have been working so hard on turning our garden from a bit of a dump into a place of beauty, fun and wildlife for us all to enjoy. When we moved in December 2020, the garden needed a lot of work and slowly we have been planting, re-turfing, pruning and nurturing it. We now see peonies growing, wild foxgloves, lupins, fuschia and lots of wild flowers, which I don’t know the names of. Beau is fascinated by bees at the moment and loves to look at the flowers and find the wild bees, of which there are tonnes. It’s so wonderful to see.
We’ve had a few firsts this week too. We went to Southbourne beach and Beau had his first ice cream. I didn’t think he’d be so interested on a windy, not so warm day, but I was wrong! He couldn’t eat my honeycomb ice cream fast enough and told me he wanted to hold it, which made me laugh. His speech is really coming along and he has lots of sentences. He is such a delight to be around. We also went out for dinner together for the first time in a year! I had booked us a table for Father’s Day. It really was a joy and fun to do this together.
This Friday 25th June, I will returning to work and what a great day to come back on. We have a new Today’s Special Value from MarlaWynne, the five-pocket, flatter fit, melange capri pant, coming in two lengths. For Petite, look for item number 189393, for Regular, look for item number 189394. They’re available in six colours: Storm Blue, Black, Sage, Cloud, Almond and Sand.
These capri trousers are made from a stretchy fabric with textured melange detail for a more casual denim look, and feature side slits, back patch pockets, faux front pockets and a fly. Comfy, chic and flattering, this pair will take you through work days and weekends in easy style. I really wish I’d had these on my holidays as they would have been perfect those day trips.
I think they’d look great with a pair of Moda in Pelle trainers or Skechers sandals. If you already have some of Marla’s clothes, you’ll know how well they wash, wear and maintain their shape, which is exactly what we want. Tune in on Friday at 11am if you can, as I’ll have a whole hour of MarlaWynne fashion with wonderful fashion expert, Melissa Hardy.
Alongside the great fashion, we have some really incredible beauty brands and I am really excited about working with Amanda Harrington (click this link for details on the set) who will be launching her multi-award winning sunless tanning brand in the 9am Morning Show with me this Friday 25th June. She has designed a collection that behaves like a tailored match for your complexion and with her special technique, she applies with a brush. Doing it this way really helps ensure that the contours of your body not only get covered but enhanced too! I’ll be adding photos on my Instagram of my experience using the brand.
Also next Tuesday 29th June at 9pm, I’ll be launching the brand new OPI six-piece Anniversary Nail Envy Collection and box (look for item number 243579). This is a world famous, multi award-winning nailcare brand that have been at the top of the tree for a very long time. So we are so excited to be celebrating their 40 years in the industry, but also 25 years with us at QVC.
The TSV is a limited edition for our QVC customer only, a silver circular box with beautiful blue ribbon containing six shades of their hero products from the Nail Envy collection. The colours are Bubble bath, Original, Matte, Hawaiian Orchid, Pink to Envy and Samoan Sand. This collection is especially great if you want to get that extra nail strength from your nail varnish, as they contain the original added strength of Nail Envy. Definitely one not to miss out on and I will be joined by the wonderful Daisie Smith. Tune in to Freeview 16 for all the girly fun.
Next week, I will also be sharing some other news both on QVC and on my social media which I’m very excited to share but more on that then. All I can say is stay tuned…
Until then take the very best of care of yourselves and each other.
