See you in a few months!


As I haven’t written a blog yet this year I will start by saying happy new year to you! I hope it has started off well for you although I know that times continue to be hard for many. I wrote a post on Instagram the other week after spending most of the New Year’s Eve week working and it was about how lucky I feel to work where I do with such great people. Here at QVC the people I am surrounded with day to day are so much fun and it makes it such a lovely place to work and I just wanted to share on that post how grateful I feel to have that amongst what can be fairly gloomy times. I should also add a special mention to our wonderful team on floor who currently always have a seat and a fan waiting for this wearing pregnant lady in every studio… what stars they are!

On that note, as the title suggests, this will be my last blog for a good few months as I’m off on my maternity leave with my last two days at QVC being this week (Wednesday and Thursday). It feels strange because I never had an end date like this last time, because of covid and shielding etc I just left work one day just over half way through my pregnancy and then didn’t come back to the building until after maternity leave. So this feels a little momentous to me this time and also quite nice to have a normal experience for once. I mean, what kind of mad woman had TWO babies during a pandemic?!

I shall miss everyone at QVC but I’m definitely ready as I’m feeling pretty tired now and I’m sure any of you that have been pregnant can understand that a two hour car journey isn’t so comfy at 8 months along! I’m looking forward to spending a little more time one-on-one with Beatrice before her new sibling makes an appearance and I have to share my attention. She is just full of life and fun at the moment and saying new words/animal sounds all the time. It is so much fun to watch her personality come out and to see her learn so many new things. Can’t say I’m not slightly nervous about managing two under twos though… yikes!

Before I go, I want to chat about my Jewellery Insider role with you. We have put it on pause for while I am going off on leave, but it is going to be coming back when I do. So there’ll still be Knowledge and Style posts on my Instagram, a monthly live to chat about what’s coming up in the jewellery department each month and hopefully some more exciting things too. I have had a few chats with some of our teams behind the scenes and I’m so looking forward to what I could be bringing you with Jewellery Insider once I’m back. As always, please let me know if there’s anything you’d like to see.

I also quickly want to mention a new-to-QVC brand that will be featuring on air for the first time on 29th January. The brand is called Sea Magik and I recently had the pleasure of meeting their founder, Kate, via video call. It was great to hear from her about the brand as it started because her father used to visit the natural salt lakes where he grew up in Hungary and their passion and beliefs as a brand all stem from that. They will be bringing all sort of goodies, including shampoo and conditioner (yes, you read that right), masks, mists and, of course, bathing salts. I have tried the magnesium baths salts, which have been a wonderful treat for my aching muscles and what’s lovely is that there is also going to be a pack of three different types of bath salts so you’ve got the right ones for the right moments. I really, really recommend tuning into the show to hear Kate talk you through all the fab items on offer as she has such a passion and amazing understanding of them. It’s all about getting a true spa experience at home and getting back to the power of nature to do that.

Right, that’s it from me really. I will just say a quick thank you before I go for all of your lovely messages to me about the pregnancy here and on social media – you’re very kind and I really appreciate them. It’s time for me to put these puffy feet up and relax as much as a toddler and mad Flatcoat retriever will let me! I’ll probably be a bit scarce on social media for a while but I’ll share a little announcement when the new family member arrives so follow me on Instagram if you’d like to see that… if it’s a girl, I’ll be able to announce a name too, but if it’s a boy there is currently a strong chance that it’ll just be called “baby” for a while as we really can’t agree on any boys’ names!

I hope the first half of 2022 for you is healthy, happy and enjoyable and I’m hoping to be back with you on QVC for the second half of it.

Best wishes to you and take care,
Kathryn x
