The jumpers are back!

I wore my first Christmas jumper on QVC last weekend, it divided opinion ha ha, but I have to say I really enjoyed sitting in a sparkly studio talking all things festive, I’m so ready for it this year!

This is going to be a busy blog as there’s a lot to tell you. I’ve got previews, giveaway news, interviews, and the return of something we haven’t seen for two years!

First up, we have a special event on Saturday 9th October, it’s called ‘A Taste of Christmas’ and our ‘Best Find of the Day’ will be from Le Creuset. It’s a cast iron shallow casserole & grill pan set, complete with a fab cookbook to inspire you. I’m actually giving one set away on my Facebook page and another set on my Instagram page – good luck to everyone who enters!

I’m hosting a new regular show from our ‘Home’ department on QVC every Wednesday at 5pm through until Christmas. On Wednesday 13th October, we’ll be taking a look at some of the festive pieces from interior designer, Kelly Hoppen, including these porcelain baubles. I hope you can join me then!

Guess what? Style Your Wardrobe is returning to the QVC Style channel every Wednesday at 6pm from the 13th October! I can’t wait to be reunited with personal stylist Katie Pemberton, it’s an interactive show where Katie shares her expertise and also answers your style dilemmas, it’s going to be a lot of fun and a chance to browse QVC’s winter fashion arrivals from some of your favourite brands.

On Saturday 16th October, the artisans at Hotel Chocolat will be offering the Velvetiser as a Today’s Special Value, the product number will be 813010. This really comes into it’s own at this time year, with superior quality hot chocolate flakes, so tasty! It’s also great for making specialty coffees too, using dairy or dairy-free milks.

Join me on QVC at 4pm for a whole hour from the Hotel Chocolat team, I’ll then also be with you for The Saturday Night Show from 7pm.

And finally… as QVC celebrate their 28 birthday, I caught up with presenter, Jilly Halliday, on the latest edition of the Inside QVC podcast. As one of our longest serving presenters, Jilly told me all about the early years of QVC, her career as a dancer, plus why she loves presenting on-air – enjoy!

See you soon, Will x

    1. Hi there Angela,

      Thanks so much for your message, I’m really pleased Style Your Wardrobe has returned, we had a fab first show last night. Hope you can join us next Wednesday evening from 6pm!

      Take care,

  2. Would love to get the Velvetiser BUT I am dairy intolerant. No good making hot choc with oat milk if the choc flakes contain milk! Can we have a dairy free option? I know they make dairy free sachets as I have seen them on their own website but your prices are better. Would hate to throw away the chocolate sachets. I live alone so would not be able to use up. Thanking you

    1. Hi there Anne,

      Thanks so much for getting in touch, I’ve just heard back from the Hotel Chocolat team and they say…

      “We believe our dark chocolate is suitable for vegans, however as it is made in the same environment as our milk chocolate, we cannot guarantee it is free from milk.”

      Here’s the full ingredient breakdown for you… Cocoa solids (cocoa mass, cocoa butter), sugar, emulsifier (SOYA lecithin), flavourings. Dark chocolate contains minimum 70% cocoa solids.

      Best wishes,

  3. YAY! – sooooo glad Style Your Wardrobe is back – love the infectious energy between you and the lovely Katie, can’t wait!
    Have to say I did a search on QVC as I LOVE the gingerbread jumper, but to no avail….is it current or from a previous year (all good on the recycling front, so applauded if that’s the case!).
    Take care xxx

    1. Hi there Sarah,

      We’re so pleased to be back on-air with Style Your Wardrobe, thank you very much for your support!

      My gingerbread jumper is actually a new purchase this year, I do have others that I still wear from previous years though, in fact a lot of my clothes I’ve had for years, especially jackets. I’m afraid it’s not from QVC, I purchased it from ASOS, so you may still be able to get hold of one.

      Best wishes, Will x

  4. Hi Will, great blog as ever. I must admit i watched you in the gingerbread jumper and loved it! I do love a gingerbread man and i had to, of course, get the L’Occitane gingerbread tins and they are adorable. Keep up the good work – you are a joy to watch whilst being very informative on the products xx

  5. Hi Will, lovely blog as usual. It’s looking very xmasy at the Q. Looking forward to your new programme, I will be watching. I also enjoyed your podcast with Jilly, I would love to hear from the remaining presenters that haven’t done a podcast yet🤞Also think Jacqui Joseph, Carla Lazlo and Tommy Cross would be very entertaining if you could persuade them to give an interview. Oh and I liked your jumper, by the way. Take care, Debbie x

    1. Hi Debbie,

      I hope you’re well, thank you very much for getting in touch via my blog.

      Jilly was a brilliant guest on the podcast, it was lovely to chat to her. We’re absolutely looking at getting more familiar QVC faces on Inside QVC, in fact I’ll be recording an episode with Alex Kramer very soon. Thanks very much for your suggestions too, I’m confident these will all happen eventually.

      Take care and thank you again for your message, always great to chat.

    1. Ah thanks so much, Liz!

      The back thing is really frustrating isn’t it, I’m off to see a Physio soon, but it is healing. Interesting you say about the massage gun, I’m interviewing a doctor who created one of these next week, be good to get his take on my back woes ha ha.

      Take care and thank you for the jumper love!

  8. Hi Karen,

    Thank you very much for your kind message!

    The L’Occitane festive tins and baubles are brilliant aren’t they? I’m glad you liked my gingerbread jumper too, I saw it online last month and thought it would be fun to wear on-air.

    Best wishes,

    Will x
