Okay, so have you heard the big news yet?? We have a brand new GILI bag coming soon and I have the opportunity to share it with my Facebook friends first, before it’s available to buy from anyone else!!

I have a feeling this bag is going to be EXTREMELY popular so as a “thank you” to my FB friends, I wanted to make sure YOU are very first in... Continue Reading

You Got It and You LOVE IT!

Last Reply by MarleyJ 1422332444.81 | Started by Amy Stran in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities, All About Handbags

This week’s episode of Project Runway All Stars is EXTRA special! Before our friend Lisa Robertson’s departure from QVC, she had the chance to guest judge an episode of Project Runway All Stars! In this episode, the designers were challenged to create a piece for the sophisticated, yet totally wearable, G.I.L.I collection to be sold on QVC. I know --- How cool?!? Because we all got it and we all LOVE IT. I reached out you, to my loyal FB girls, to share photos of your favorite GILI item in your closet. I am never surprised by your amazing fashion sense, but I’ve got to tell ... Continue Reading

Looking Back on 2014

Last Reply by childrensden 1420151609.98 | Started by Amy Stran in Hosts & Personalities

Hey Ladies!! WOW, what an exciting year. Today someone asked me to describe my year in 3 words and I was stumped. How could I possibly consolidate all of the amazing memories, events, and milestones we've experienced over the last year into just three words.  Well it was a question and every question deserves an answer... So this is what I came up with.  3 words I would use to describe 2014: Life-Changing. Happy. Wonderful.  Because not everyone has a Facebook, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories throughout the year that I've posted on my page. Starting with the g... Continue Reading

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

Last Reply by Pray 1420401291.713 | Started by Amy Stran in Recipe Swap, Cookie Exchange, Hosts & Personalities

Hey Ladies, First, I want to wish you a Happy Holiday? Don't you just love this time of the year? The other night me and Steve were thinking about how we never want the holidays to end. The home is cozier, the food is tastier, and the memories are that much sweeter. ANYWHO! The reason I am writing this blog (other than to chat with you!) is to thank you for all of the kind words you have shared about our Christmas special featured on the Q. We had such a blast shooting it and we were able take some really great professional photos (something I haven't been able to pull together just yet-- I p... Continue Reading

"So How Did You Two Meet?"

Last Reply by emmysmom 1420947678.697 | Started by Amy Stran in Hosts & Personalities, Among Friends

This episode of Project Runway All Stars is called “Match.com.” The designers are teaming up to create an elegant outfit for either a man or a woman getting ready for a romantic first date. So how will I “Amy-ify” (yes, that is a verb I just made up) this week’s challenge? Funny you should ask! When hearing about this challenge I couldn’t help but laugh. The idea of wearing a polished and elegant outfit for a romantic first date is just so ironic when thinking about my “first date” with Steve. Have I ever told you how Steve and I met? If so, be...

My tarte Makeover!

Last Reply by bugandme2010 1419481654.057 | Started by Amy Stran in tarte, Hosts & Personalities

In the beginning of December I went up to NYC with our Inspired Style team to shoot a couple of fun segments coming up for our next season! (YAY, I CAN HARDLY WAIT!) While I was there, I had the pleasure of hanging out with Erin, one of the fabulous makeup artists from tarte! She prepped me for a full day of shooting and I asked her to share exactly what she used on me so that I could then share with you! So here is the exact formula on how to create a camera ready look for your upcoming holiday parties: Complexion: 1. Start with tarte's Flawless Primer 2. Apply the CC-brightener under ...

It's Cookie Season!

Last Reply by prophet 1418348048.15 | Started by Amy Stran in Recipe Swap, Cookie Exchange, Hosts & Personalities

Cookies, cakes, brownies, tarts, YOU NAME IT and I am all ears. While my sweet tooth is hard to tame all year around, it gets a mind of its own around the holidays. This is the time of the year when I surrender the will power and splurge on sweets. This year the QVC hosts are having a “virtual” cookie exchange where we can swap recipes and share them with you along the way. Shout out to Sandra Bennett for nominating me next on the list of cookie recipes… Now… I really mean it when I say you can’t judge these cookies by the way they look. They are dark (from the...

What To Wear for Turkey Day

Last Reply by Penny S 1417105578.58 | Started by Amy Stran in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Among Friends

What does everyone want to wear to Thanksgiving dinner…. Sweatpants or perhaps anything with an extremely elastic waistband! But since so many of us would never, I decided to put together a fashion guide for Turkey Day! Thanksgiving is the kickoff for holiday fashion, but it’s also really the last hoorah, for all of our fall favorites. This is the time to go big on the cozy sweaters, warm fall tones, and the latest trends you saw this season – plaids, fringe, and boyfriend style (just to name a few). Here are some of my rules for picking out your Thanksgiving outfit:1. ...

Bree Takes Florida!

Last Reply by pickie3 1414639618.273 | Started by Amy Stran in Hosts & Personalities, Among Friends

Bree’s beach bum status was confirmed back in June when we hit the Jersey Shore for a family vacation. It was a relief knowing that not only could she handle a day spent wearing a bathing suit at the beach covered in sunscreen, but she actually LOVED IT. I say it was a relief because me and Steve love the beach, especially Stone Harbor. It’s our happy place! Since, we got the okay from our successful shore trip, we decided to plan our first big family vacation for the three of us in Florida. The trip brought a lot of firsts… Bree’s first airplane ride: Her first... Continue Reading

This week we had our friend Meg over for dinner. Not only did we have a delicious meal and a great time, but we also came up with a really fun idea for you! Because you're always inviting me into your home no matter what time of day I happen to be on-air, we thought it was time we finally returned the favor and invited you over to our house!! Sunday Funday is one of our favorite traditions and this week you're invited! We put together a quick home tour so you can get an idea of where and how we like to spend our Sunday's and pretty much every day together.  You'll notice most of the dec... Continue Reading
