Isn’t British weather funny? Over the Easter weekend hubby and I had drinks in the garden in glorious sunshine after I got back from work on Sunday afternoon, and then I shivered as I tried to do some weeding in a hailstorm on Monday morning! (And how very British to start by talking about the weather too…let me change the subject.)
I hope some of you managed to be reunited with loved ones over Easter, now that lockdown rules are easing. It will still be a while until I can see my family, who all live in Ireland, but I’m hopeful that might happen before the end of the year if travel rules are relaxed, fingers crossed! In the meantime, it’s the little things that continue to make me happy. The garden is starting to explode with colour, which is wonderful – my pansies and daffodils make me smile every day.
I’m also looking forward to getting back to proper running races in early May – I did a virtual half marathon a couple of weeks ago (you run the race alone, send the organisers the evidence and they send the medal in the post) which was nice but not as much fun as running with others.
In my last blog I mentioned the two-day fashion event coming up at QVC this Friday/Saturday 9th/10th April. Well – I have more details for you now about the Today’s Special Value offers for the event. I’m actually launching both of them, so I nabbed some samples and took some photos for you at the weekend. On Friday, it’s the Go Walk Arch Fit Sandals from Skechers. Oh my goodness – SO light, and SO comfortable! I’m wearing the Champagne option here, and it also comes in Black, Grey, Navy and Rose. The brand new arch support technology is wonderful; it has taken many years to develop, and we will be seeing a lot more of it from Skechers in 2021. Plus – these sandals are machine washable! We can get as mucky as we like!
Then on Saturday it’s Ruth Langsford with her Ruched Detail Midi Dress. Lovely detail at the neck and waist, a pretty floaty sleeve and the usual three lengths – petite, regular and tall – will make this very popular, I predict. And the colours are fabulous – I’m in the Blue Print here (I’m so predictable, but I do love blue!) and there’s also a Pink Print and Grey Print, plus Black and Navy. The perfect summer dress!
Also a quick mention for Elemis, who bring us another amazing offer on Sunday 11th, but you can order it HERE now if you want to get ahead. It’s a five-piece Pro-Collagen Energise & Renew Collection in a choice of Sea Lavender & Samphire or British Botanical; both contain the new Renewal Serum which is the brand’s alternative to retinol. I’m a huge retinol fan so I’m excited to try this!
Enjoy your week and see you soon.
Love Jackie xx
