In the salon with Alison

I was sat RIGHT BEHIND Alison (who had a table full of Philosophy... which wafted over and smelt d-vine ;) My camera was no where in sight... as has been the case for the entire day at QVC. I could have bumped into Paul McKenna and never been able to blog about it... *gasp* (Please note this DID NOT happen... although I did say hi to the coat man, and the gorgeous gal who came all the way down from Manchester to demo the jewellery cases for 7 minutes - talk about dedication.)

So I was nervous... but Anthony was a superstar. Very nice to work with (I took my heels off so he could be taller than me ;) I loved all the callers - I just wish I knew for certain that the camera I was looking at was INDEED the camera that was "live". So many lessons learnt!! Back again on the 22nd December (which is also the same day as another Papermania hour!!) I had more samples - but they all arrived too late... sod's law :( More new brands and new products next show...

I have been going to bed at 8pm, as I am still on crazy body timing... but I have pressies to wrap tonight, and spooks to catch up with. Sorry about saying SNOT. There has to be a better word for that sticky effect... but snot was all that I could muster under pressure. NOT as bad as a word that the elfin presenter with the face products (Bo-something or other) used. She meant to say SEBUM... and I will leave you to imagine what she actually DID say.

Although I only managed to watch the first hour of your QVC show due to my boys dentist appointment... you did an absolutely fantastic job and I can't wait for your next show in which I will make sure nothing will interrupt me watching the whole lot!

Well done Nikki

I did chuckle at your SNOT comparison...nothing like being under pressure is there....hee...but nice to see some humour!

I thought the show was excellent - fun, fresh, full of inspiring products and you are a natural presenter...thoroughly enjoyed it and now feel a Basic Grey convert...Mmmmm....must treat myself when hubby isn't looking...

Loved it! ...and am looking out for the mag - although the club offer is very tempting too...xx

Ruth said...

LOL at the snot comment (but you are right, it does look like snot!) Loved the sticky things for flocking, and glitter (had to buy these!) shame there was no flock on offer too!

Hi Becks, just wanted to leave a quick post to say what an absolute delight it was to see you on QVC. A fresh bright bubbly face showcasing so many fab products... like many others I can't wait to see you back on air again with more scrummy products.
Keep up the good work.

Hugs
