It’s time to get into the spring of things! Flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, and the days are getting longer. The change in season always gives me a renewed sense of inspiration. I’m suddenly motivated to clean, renovate, and redecorate. But sometimes I find myself fresh out of ideas. This year, I turned to Valerie Parr Hill, home décor expert, for her top 10 tips for refreshing a home. I’m now convinced that small changes really can make a big difference. And you don’t have to break the bank, either—Valerie’s first two tips won’t cost ... Continue Reading

It’s been such a brutal winter that it’s almost hard to believe spring is finally here (woo hoo!). I know those of you who have endured snow storms and frigid temperatures can’t wait to pack away the boots and gloves and bring out the sandals and shorts. This month, I want to help put Old Man Winter behind us by sharing some inside scoop on Denim & Co.® apparel debuting for the warm weather ahead.
I spoke with QVC’s resident Denim & Co. experts—Program Host Carolyn Gracie and Designer Gary Goben—to talk about the “How” c... Continue Reading

I’m very excited to bring you a sneak peek of the jewelry Tova will present during Discover Diamonique® on Tuesday, December 10 at 3pm ET.
If you read some of the reviews at QVC.com for Tova’s jewelry , you’ll see it described as “stunning,” “beautiful,” “regal,” “lovely,” and “gorgeous.” These adjectives adequately sum up the essence of these exquisite pieces, and I speak from experience.
Prior to the May 2013 premiere of Jewelry by Tova—featuring Diamonique® I visited Tova ... Continue Reading

The fall season is here and everywhere are pumpkins, colorful leaves, and corn stalks. This is one of my favorite times of year (the other being summer). I love when the days are a little chilly, but the sun is warm. The fall foliage can be breathtaking, and it inspires us to bring a little of the outdoors in.
Last fall was the first time I decorated for the season. I bought a Bethlehem Lights Cornucopia for the coffee table.
The LED lights are subtle enough that I can also use it as a centerpiece for my Thanksgiving dinner table. I bought several garlands of fall leaves an... Continue Reading

Everyone has a summer place—a cabin in the mountains, a cottage at the beach, or their own back yard. Maybe it’s just a feeling you get when summer arrives. Growing up in New England, my summer place was anywhere outdoors. I ran barefoot all summer, climbing trees, playing in the woods, running under the sprinkler, and riding my bike. I had a paper route delivering the Woonsocket Call and rode my bike all over Franklin, Massachusetts.
Now (not surprisingly), my summer place is anywhere I can go on my bike. When I got into the sport of cycling about seven years ago, I ha... Continue Reading

I had the pleasure of once again visiting my friend Tova Borgnine at her home near West Chester, Pennsylvania, to discuss the premiere of Jewelry by Tova—featuring Diamonique® airing May 24 at 11am ET.
Tova’s stunning Diamonique jewelry is inspired from pieces in her personal collection, designs from the classic Hollywood era, and pieces borrowed from around the world for Red Carpet appearances. She opened her jewelry boxes to me, showing me both the original and Diamonique pieces—even a jeweler would have a hard time telling the difference!
Her passion a... Continue Reading
