I hope you’re well and are looking forward to some time off over the festive period.
We recently visited Hastings and were so lucky with the weather. It was forecast to be cloudy and drizzly, but everything cleared to leave a beautiful day.
We spent some time having a coffee on the pier and also took Archie (the dog) for a long walk up on East Hill. The Old Town is beautiful with lots of little areas to explore.
Spending time by the sea reminded me of all my filming trips to the Isle of Wight over the years. The Liz Earle team have always been so welcoming, and I’ve enjoyed holidays on the island too. If you love Liz Earle skincare, look out for their final Today’s Special Value offer of the year on Saturday 18th December. You can choose between the original Cleanse & Polish, or the relaxing option which is Rose & Lavender. I can’t believe December is going so quickly!
I’m busy working behind-the-scenes at the moment, recording and editing lots of Inside QVC episodes with the podcast team. One of the more recent interviews is with kitchen expert, Simon Brown. Many of you will have been watching Simon on-air for a long time, his career is really interesting and he has a couple of fascinating hobbies too.
On Wednesday 22nd December, our Best Find of the Day will be from Luxform! It’s a dual powered wildlife Victorian style lamp post. It operates by solar or battery power, but then also has a planter, two bird feeders and a bird bath included. It’s such a great idea, very useful to have so much built into a small footprint, plus you’re attracting some fabulous wildlife to your outdoor space.
Then on Friday 24th December, we’ll be presenting the Juno Supersoft Shaggy Rug from Cozee Home. It’s made from a luxuriously plush long pile that’s thick and durable, meaning it will remain soft and bouncy to the touch. You can choose between Blush, Charcoal, Duck Egg, Ivory, Natural, or Silver Grey.
QVC presenter, Will Gowing, recorded a clip of the waves rolling in on Hastings Beach. Find out more about his trip to the historic coastal town and more in …
Finally, I shot this video when I was in Hastings recently, it was a moment of calm whilst the sun was setting. I know that for some of you, this Christmas is going to be tough and my thoughts are with you.
