I'm getting an early gift on November 19th! I'm hosting two hours of Affinity Diamonds at 1am, and will be joined by QVC's resident graduate gemologist Peyton Kelley for the first time in an Affinity show! I always enjoy his wealth of knowledge when talking about our colored gems and Global Artisan Crafted pieces, but to have his expertise while talking about a girl's best friend is icing on this jewelry lover's cake!
To celebrate this treat, I decided to sit down with Peyton and pick his brain of all things Pretty Sparklies. I thought it'd be helpful to revisit some of the most common ques... Continue Reading

Happy Mom Monday! Or in this case, a bit of a bittersweet Mom Monday...
It's almost the first day of school for my Gabby. I cannot believe I'm the mom of an 8th grader! And don't even go there with the "next year she'll be in high school"...she reminds me almost daily!
The first day of school is always bittersweet for me. I'm infinitely proud of my daughter for the strong, smart and courageous young woman she's becoming. But as the mom of an only child, every milestone is that much more poignant! So instead of getting misty-eyed, I decided to snap some fun photos comparing how the two of us ... Continue Reading

Our Beauty Innovations Blog for this week is all about a successful hair intervention!
It was just over 18 months ago that Chaz Dean came to my rescue.
When I first walked into his salon he knew he had his work cut out for him. After over a decade of heavy processing, heat-tool styling, and harsh products, my hair was begging for mercy and a drink of water! Need proof? The somewhat-outdated headshot you see at the top of my blog was taken just before Chaz got a hold of me!
Cut to present day when I'm happy to report my hair is much happier! It's about more than just the right cl... Continue Reading

In my house, it’s an extra-happy Friday as it is officially the first Friday since school let out for summer! Woohoo! My daughter has already begun sleeping in and bugging mom to constantly take her to the pool. Not that she really has to twist my arm that hard ☺
What she doesn’t know is that I’m on a mission this summer: to make sure that we stay on track nutritionally. It’s so easy to go down the road of fast foods and junk goodies when the temps rise and vacations begin. The good news, is that we moms have so many tools to help us concoct sweet treats...

I'm just back from vacation, a much-needed trip to the Florida beaches with my mini-me. We swam, we sand-castled, we stayed up late watching movies, ate way more than we should have and loved every second of it! I feel even closer to my daughter after trips like this, and for that I'm so grateful.
What's funny is that these trips also make me realize how much QVC has become part of my life both at home and on my travels! I threw in a few pics to illustrate:
-Supergoop SPF kept Gabby and I burn-free even on the most sizzling days,
-Gabby toted her new favorite Vera Bradley on our sho... Continue Reading

Hey there Beauty Buffs! I just have to tell you about an amazing experience I had this past weekend in NYC..I was delighted to be invited to tour the Fresh Beauty flagship location in Union Square and learn more about this cult-favorite line. Founder Lev Glazman and I have a show on Sunday and it was a great opportunity to dig deeper into this indulgent line of beauty and skincare products!
I arrived and was greeted by Lev and his warm and gracious staff. You can tell they are so passionate about what they do. Lev himself has a lifetime of passion for beauty, skincare, and fragrance that dr... Continue Reading

I'm really excited about one of the shows I've got on Tuesday...because it could change a lot of lives for the better. It's Nutrisystem. And for many people who watch it could be the catalyst for a lot of great changes.
As someone who struggled with more than 30 excess pounds for years, I know what the battle for wellness and confidence is like and how emotionally draining it can be. I grew up carrying a lot of excess weight, and food was how I dealt with stress. It wasn't until I hit 30 that I finally tired of the fad diets and loss-and-gain rollercoasters and decided to make some serious, l... Continue Reading

Memorial Day Weekend is finally here!!
I tell you, something about this winter just felt eternal!! I’ve been eagerly awaiting the start of Spring and Summer (or more specifically, warmer temps!). This Texas gal is ready for some heat!
So here we finally are. My daughter is counting down the days until school ends (21..she keeps me updated) and we are beginning our summer ritual: choosing our Summer Anthem!
You see, each year Gabby and I pick a song that sets the tone for our summer: the only rule is it has to be happy and upbeat! Past winners include Sean Paul&... Continue Reading

Confession time: I totally cheated today.
I got in around midnight last night after a long (but fun) day of broadcasting live from New Jersey during our Memorial Day celebration here on QVC. It was fast-paced, the energy was great, the guests were enthusiastic, the weather was a blessing. But after 14 hours, I was beat!
So today, on a school day when I normally get up well before Gabby so I can shower, dress and get breakfast all ready, I cheated. I woke up at the very last minute, roused Gabby up in time to give her the rare bowl of cereal, and drove her to school with hair pulled back and ... Continue Reading

This week I posted pics of my new love...my Aimee Kestenberg bag!
She goes with me everywhere. And I won't lie; this one piece makes me feel like a fashionista no matter what I wear! Here's me and my Gabbers hanging out at the mall with her. No Gabby, I don't plan on bequeathing her to you for quite a while!!
Showing my purse-onality at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas at the JCK show! She didn't mind me sneaking a selfie in the background too...
Gabby, Kim and I had a blast in the mall photo booth...note the bag we're fighting over in the upper right??
She literally goes with me ever... Continue Reading
