While in LA for my daughter's interview for PHD schools, I got to grab some birthday fun. California is such a beautiful state, with such kind people. It was my first time there and it was a dream come true to finally visit. It's breathtaking!! I wanted to share some photos from my trip with you!!

Oooooh k... Here's the scoop on my birthday dinner at SUR. My daughter, Hope and I gave it the episode titled:
LOST HOPE AT SUR..( Hope pretended she was lost and I lost Hope)
We had our own mini drama and here are the details….LOL!
We were in LA for Hope to interview at PHD schools and being that we would be there over my birthday, I begged Hubby to take us to SUR (Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurant) for dinner to celebrate. He isn't a fan of the show Vanderpump Rules, but knows that I have watched it since the first episode.
Hope and I were sooooo excited to get there, we could ha... Continue Reading

Sooooo... As many of you know, I'm NOT a beauty host, but that doesn't mean I don't like to dabble in our goodies. Lol. When I find something really cool, I love sharing it with you!
Here's how it all started: I was curling my eyelashes and got sick of seeing half of them stuck to the lip of the curler. Do you know how LONG it takes to GROW an eyelash?? Sheesh!! So I'm watching Jamie, from IT Cosmetics, demonstrating HELLO LASHES. She said it curled your lashes and made them super long. Hmmmmm... The very next day, I saw Jamie and enthusiastically started bombarding her with HELLO LASHE... Continue Reading

As a host at QVC, it’s part of my job to try out products before I present them on-air, so that I can better speak to them (definitely not complaining about this job responsibility!!!!). One day, I saw a small package in my mail box. It was like it was glaring at me, and I was glaring right back at it. I knew EXACTLY what it was, and I didn’t want ANYTHING to do with it. This little box that was causing me such a big headache was a Fitbit.
About a week went by, and I still hadn’t removed the Fitbit from my mailbox. I was hoping it would disappear!!!! But then our fitness b... Continue Reading

Today is a sad day for me. I put off writing this post for as long as possible, because I haven't been able to wrap my mind around it. As we all say good bye to Lisa Robertson, I reflect on all the great things we have done together, her support, her friendship and the kind of person she is.
A little history ... I was a long time viewer, before joining the Host team. I loved watching her on QVC and simply couldn't believe I would actually get to work with her. I remember avoiding Lisa like the plague when I first started, because I was such a big fan and didn't want to say somethi... Continue Reading

Everywhere you look in the month of November you see the gorgeous warm shades of yellow, orange and red leaves falling to the ground. November’s birthstone Citrine does a marvelous job at capturing that warm fall feeling.
There are very few true yellow gemstones. The name citrine is derived from the French word "citron" meaning lemon. Lemony, brisk, zesty sunshine hues draw you in and give you that warm, cozy feeling. If you are drawn to canary diamonds, maybe citrines can warm your heart and captivate you with their hue - and of course their affordability!

Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet.......................... what?!?!? Yup, that's what your October birthstone brings us....color, color and more color! A rainbow of fiery shades captured in a gemstone. It is a force of nature that swells within one stone - Opal!
It's essence is all about purity, hope and innocence - shown in that gorgeous Ethiopian Opal Sterling Cross Pendant on 18" Chain.
And yet, it has an allure to it that even Cleopatra used to enchant and entice Mark Anthony.
Both of these opal bracelets - the 6.30 ct tw Ethiopian ... Continue Reading

Oooooh September Babies..... I envy you! Your birthstone is my most favorite color - - Sapphire Blue!!!! It's deep, it's rich, it's vibrant and regal!
I loved trying on your birthstone and I especially like the wearability of this Sandra Sing Bead Necklace:
Long ago it was believed that sapphires represented "divine favor" so they were the gemstone of choice for kings and high priests. The British Crown Jewels are filled with large, blue sapphires and of course, who could forget the sapphire engagement ring that Princess Diana received from Prince Charles?
