An Easter Twist on a Classic Treat

Started by Leah Williams in Kitchen & Food Talk, Recipe Swap, Hosts & Personalities 1397760622.84

Most people are familiar with the classic treat S'mores, but have you heard of S'meeps? It's an Easter twist on a classic; instead of using marshmallows, peeps are used. Of course, I chose yellow, but any color will do.  S'Meeps Ingredients: Graham Crackers Chocolate Bars Peeps   Just like S'mores, a piece of chocolate is placed on a graham cracker, then add a peep and place in the microwave. Set the timer and watch closely for the peep to puff up. It only took about 20 seconds for me. Remove from the microwave and place another graham cracker on top and push it down. The warm...

Beauty Before Breakfast

Last Reply by 1moai 1397910129.36 | Started by Leah Williams in Beauty Banter, Hosts & Personalities, Among Friends

In early 2013, I was approached by our behind-the-scenes team with an idea for a “Beauty Show” as a lead in for AM Style. The thinking was, since Saturday mornings were already a popular time for fashion fun, why not add beauty to the mix? It sounded great, except for one thing -- I was already getting up before 5:00 a.m. in preparation for AM Style. AM Beauty meant I’d be getting up before 4:00 a.m. I’m a morning person, but come on... My Bose alarm goes off at 3:45 a.m. on Saturdays But I ultimately decided it would be great fun to host an early morning beauty sho... Continue Reading

Kitchen "Aid"

Started by Leah Williams in Kitchen & Food Talk, Recipe Swap, Hosts & Personalities 1395939039.553

My KitchenAid stand mixer has a designated spot in my kitchen -- its own cupboard. I can’t imagine not having it when I need it. I have lots of recipes that are made better and easier because I use my stand mixer. But my favorite is probably mashed potatoes. I never knew mashed potatoes could be so velvety and creamy until I made them with my KitchenAid. Now, that’s the only way I’ll prepare them. No matter what kind of mashed potatoes you like -- basic, garlic, cheesy, bacon, lobster, buttermilk, sour cream and chives -- the KitchenAid mixer ensures your mashed potatoes w... Continue Reading

"Pretty Girls Shouldn’t" ... Confidence and the Car Wash

Last Reply by GinaJules 1396923460.54 | Started by Leah Williams in Beauty Banter, Hosts & Personalities, Viewpoints

My father loved to tell the story about his first job as a kid at the Red Carpet Car Wash. He was 15, and it was back in the day when a hose, a bucket and a chamois were the tools of the trade. It was hard work, but he took great pride in it. I think that’s part of the reason his whole life he was adamant that a car should always be clean. When I was a teen, with a car of my own, I wasn’t always diligent about keeping my car clean. One day my father said to me, “A pretty girl shouldn’t drive a dirty car--let’s go.” We hopped into my Datsun B210 and drove ... Continue Reading

Green Drinks

Last Reply by duclane 1394832609.85 | Started by Leah Williams in Kitchen & Food Talk, Recipe Swap, Hosts & Personalities

My friend Erika was telling me about a delicious smoothie she made with spinach, pineapple and peanut butter. She said in spite of what you might expect with dark green veggies and other ingredients, the smoothie was a bright shade of green. Oh, and she said it was delicious! With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, it got me thinking about “green drinks”. Some of the most enjoyable beverages are green. Now “green” can mean healthy and “green” can mean fun. As long as the color is right, the rest is up to you! So happy St. Patrick’s Day... Continue Reading

Scarf Tying 101 - What's Your Favorite Technique?

Last Reply by piepants 1392074908.8 | Started by Leah Williams in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities, All About Accessories

I said many times that a scarf is my favorite accessory. I just love how easy scarves are to incorporate into an outfit. Whether you want to add color, enhance a neckline, draw attention to or away from a particular area, you can’t go wrong with a scarf. Here are three three easy tips for wearing and styling your scarf. 1. Just keep wrapping it around your neck until you can’t wrap any more. (It creates its own turtleneck effect.) 2. Tie a knot anywhere and loop the scarf over your head. (There’s no wrong way to do it.) 3. Just let it hang from your shoulders. (... Continue Reading

A QVC Photo Shoot - How Do You Say Cheese?

Last Reply by DING 1392595625.38 | Started by Leah Williams in Beauty Banter, Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities

Today was a fun day! It was time for new QVC publicity shots, so I was the "model". The planning that goes into creating a photo spread is amazing. You might think it's a simple point and shoot, but it is quite an elaborate production. Not only is there a photographer, but an entire team of talented people who make it all happen. It started with my "story board" -- a compilation of pictures with colors, styles and attitudes crafted by Carol, our Creative Director. It was an outline of how we would convey the essence of who I am and what I like. Her vision was terrific... Continue Reading
