How long have you been at Q? It’s been 22 years! I started as a model in January 1991.
What was the process to become a model then & is it still the same today? It’s funny because I met a model at a fashion show I was doing, & she told me who to call. My contact at Q was one of the producers. I called him, and after a few minutes of chatting, he wanted to meet me. When I came in for the meeting, he said “this where you’ll model, this is where you’ll change. I’ll call when we need you.” And that w... Continue Reading

It had been a long day for Artisan-Crafted Jewelry designer, Dominique Dinouart. She (and her husband) had been at QVC since the wee hours of the morning preparing for her shows. I caught her at the tail end of her visit and asked if I could interview her for my next blog. She agreed and was as gracious and warm as I imagine she was the day she first walked into QVC! Enjoy!
Where did you grow up? Paris, France.
When did you come to the U.S.? When we left Paris we moved to Montreal, Canada. Shortly thereafter, we moved to Michigan. I... Continue Reading

It’s the New Year, & it’s time to make my “New Year’s Resolutions”. But I never keep them, do you? I can tell you for the past two years, I’ve been “resolving” to take off the 7 lbs that subtly crept up on my backside, tummy & thighs over the past 3 years. I can also tell you that there are times when I’m in an excellent form…eating well & exercising… but it lasts for like a second before I need to take a nap & eat some cheetos. Seriously, what’s up with that? A routine. ... Continue Reading

There was a time when my gift list was short and sweet. My list included my parents, sibs, grandparents (when they were alive) and the cast members in whatever show I was performing. I loved giving ornaments to everyone and occasionally would make gifts. I remember one Christmas knitting sweaters for my mom and dad. I had just learned how to knit and was getting really bold with projects beyond a scarf. I thought, “if I can knit a scarf, I can knit a cable-knit sweater, by golly!” Well…my first mistake was the color palette I c... Continue Reading

I can’t imagine what my parents, siblings and, of course, my husband, Jim, felt when they heard the news I had invasive breast cancer. I now know shock, fear & disbelief were the first set of emotions that came rushing in for all of us. True to my family’s character, they stood together and set forth on a respectful, nonintrusive path to help me figure out the best course of action in terms of treatment & care as well as what they could to do to support Jim, Isabella (4 months at the time) & me. I’m a pretty self-sufficient gal and rarely ask for... Continue Reading

Recently my mom and my sister Cindy helped me put up my Christmas tree. You must be saying, "Why Nancy? It's so early. Are you crazy? Have you lost your mind?" Maybe. LOL! Actually, Bethlehem Lights is bringing us the Pre-lit Balsam Fir for our October "Joy of Christmas" Event, and I wanted to show you what it looks like and how easy it is to put together. (I chose the 7.5' tree with white lights.) Before I share pictures, I'll reminisce about Christmas Trees past.
We always had a live tree for Christmas when I was growing up. For several year... Continue Reading

I came to QVC in September of 2009. One of the first people I met was this petite woman who was packed with energy, warmth, and talent. Her name was Maria McCool. Her mission was to help me figure out my “style” from head to toe. The first step was taking her "Style Exam" to find out what mine was. We found out that I was primarily a “Creative.” Once that was determined, we dove into my closet. She helped me purge everything that didn’t have a creative/sassy/fun edge to it, like my beautiful, but conservative suits. (I donated practically my entire closet to &ldqu... Continue Reading

It’s been a long time since we’ve had a one-hour premiere hair care show at the Q. Why? Because it takes something really special to achieve that honor and Alterna has done it!
With a big show like this, we do extra rehearsals and prep. So, Alterna’s Education Expert, Alberti, and his team came in Thursday to give me the skinny on the brand and teach me about the products. (Alberti is so awesome, I’ve decided he need only to go by his first name, kind of like Cher or Bono. But, I digress.)
I had so much fun playi... Continue Reading

Have you ever been to an all-inclusive resort or gone for a cruise? It’s so nice to have everything that you need or want at your fingertips… meals, pools, spas, your favorite cold drink, and activities galore. Many of us work full time; take care of the kids, the house, the bills, the yard, the shopping, the cooking, the cleaning. It can be overwhelming. Believe me, I’m always happy when something is laid out for me and I don’t have to go searching all over creation to get it. That’s why I love cruising so much - I feel rejuvenated!...
