As the frosty winter comes to a thaw, March Babies turn the season over with Crystal Blue Aquamarine! Colors ranging from a clear blue summer sky to a deeper Caribbean blue ocean. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…. Are you ready for it? I AM!!
Just the name – “Aquamarine” – makes me feel like I’m on vacation, sunning myself on a warm beach. The name 'Aquamarine' was derived from an old Latin expression which meant 'seawater'.
In the same beryl family as emerald and morganite, aquamarine shows the same fantastic prop... Continue Reading

Fashion is not all about clothes...in my opinion, it is the "total package" - hair, make-up, jewelry, clothes and, of course, ATTITUDE!
Today as we recognize our favorite "Fashion Friends", I wanted to call out my amazing friend and hair stylist, Maria McCool. Since so many of you have complimented me on my new hairstyle and asked for more information about how I achieved the look, I asked Maria to break it down for you - step-by-step. Being the sweetheart that she is, she said "Of course!" Enjoy! XOXO A
Spring 2014 brings a whole new look on sty... Continue Reading

With all of this horrible snowy, icy winter weather, I dream about sitting on my front porch with my cup of coffee and the warm, relaxing spring sun on my face.
This is my view one night last spring on a warm, rainy night. I would even take RAIN - as long as it was WARM!
All gardens are beautiful, but MY garden isn’t all about just pretty colors and fragrant flowers. My garden is my HEART and FAMILY.
10 years ago a dream came true and I got the job here at QVC. I’ve always loved gardening and it broke my heart that I would have to leave beh... Continue Reading

A very poor man lived with his wife. One day, his wife, who had very long hair asked him to buy her a comb for her hair to grow well and to be well-groomed. The man felt very sorry and said no. He explained that he did not even have enough money to fix the strap of his watch he had just broken. She did not insist on her request. The man went to work and passed by a watch shop, sold his damaged watch at a low price and went to buy a comb for his wife. He came home in the evening with the comb in his hand ready to give to his wife. He was surprised when he saw his wife with a very short hair cut... Continue Reading

You Ladies are rockin' your amethyst. One of my favorite gem stones, drenched in rich, deep purple. Oooooh is that ever a beauty!!
Amethyst is such a regal stone. In its color, it just looks like Royalty, and it is. Amethyst has been used in crowns and jewels, fit for a Queen (even a QVC Queen - is that you?). There just isn't anything more beautiful than looking into that deep, melting purple color. Soothing and exciting, all at the same time.... Mmmmm, it just LOOKS yummy!!
I wanted to share with you, my first piece of Amethyst that I ever got at QVC. It's also my first purchase, a 2ct ame... Continue Reading

I recently had to do a presentation in front of all of the other hosts in one of our team meetings….. ME! Talking in front of Mary Beth Roe and Rick Domeier and Jane Treacy ….. all of them really ….my heros! The ones I watched for years and years and bought and bought and bought from! To try to help me be less nervous – I shared with them my secret motivational board. When I first came here to QVC it was like a dream come true…. I kept asking people to pinch me and wake me up! I was so star struck meeting my idols ... Continue Reading

Let's kick off the year with something FIERY and FIERCE!!
I'm talking about January's Birthstone... GARNET!! Can I get an Amen, Sisters!! :D
Ok, maybe I'm a little partial - it is MY birthstone. I'll be honest with you, growing up, I never liked my own birthstone. All the garnets I ever saw were way too dark, almost a root beer color……….ugh. All that changed when I laid eyes on QVC GARNETS.
Rich, deep, fiery red!! A very sexy, alluring color....
Check out that amazing Garnet Cross!
Clear and honest in its dazzling sparkle... Continue Reading

I had my little Christmas party for my Jewelry Buyers and some others that help me all year at the Q. As always, we had a great time….we laughed a lot and ate a lot and drank a little too!
This year, instead of my Lasagna (recipe here) – I made 3 different types of pastas with three different types of homemade sauces; a big salad and of course sausage (sweet and hot), peppers, onions and potatoes.
Just a little bite to eat.
If you want to try two of these sauces, the one on the left is my Red Sauce:
Antonella's Red Sauce
