Do you have a certain something that tells you fall is in the air?  For me, it goes back to growing up in Springfiled, Pa.  Most summer nights when the windows were open to the backyard, all I would hear were the crickets chirping in the evening.  But, a sure sign that fall was just around the corner, was when through the open windows I would hear the sound of the drums from the marching band practicing for football half time shows.  To this day, so many years later, I still get excited for the change in seasons when I hear the drumline of a marching ban...

QVC Program Hosts Sandra Bennett and Albany Irving use Perfect Formula for their HDTV-ready nails It is a scenario that has happened more times than I would like to admit: I’m getting ready to go on-air, I wash my hands and check my nails.

It Cosmetics: Fight Visible Signs of Aging While Doing Your Makeup

Hey, pretty ladies! Long time, no talk! I have a good reason though. I just got back from two unbelievable vacations—a relaxing week in the Outer Banks with my boyfriend and his family and 10 pinch-me-I-must’ve-been-dreaming days in Italy with my mom and sisters. We went on a group tour called “The Great Italian Cities,” so one of our stops was, of course, Florence. While waiting in a very long line to get into the Uffizi Gallery (home to masterpieces such as the “Birth of Venus” by Botticelli), my older sister, Rachel, passed the time by braiding my hair. ...

Fight the Visible Signs of Stress & Aging with NuFACE

Last Reply by Blondbychoice 1344305239.623 | in Beauty Banter, TSV Talk

Do you ever look into the mirror and wonder where that youthful girl has gone? As we age, our faces become less toned and lose the youthful, vibrant appearances they once had. No matter how much effort we put into our facial skin-care regimen, there's no way to avoid the visible signs of stress and aging on our faces: wrinkles, slack, tired eyes, or jowly jaw. It’s inevitable. You’re forced to just live with your aging face or think of alternative, more drastic measures. To us, this is simply not acceptable and exactly why we created NuFACE.   Our unique,... Continue Reading

Inspired Style is Almost Here- A Video From a Style Expert & Some Updates

Last Reply by purple unicorn 1341506385.247 | in Beauty Banter, Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities

Hi Ladies! Sorry I haven't written in awhile but I must confess I am having the busiest summer ever.  A lot of it had to do with the move, some of it is the four weddings I have been invited to and the four showers that precede them, but most of it all comes from my very exciting, oh so happy I could scream, Inspired Style show.  So yes that means all the busy comes from a very good thing! It is exactly a month away from the debut of the big show so along with the butterflies in my stomach I'm also getting more and more prepared.  We've been working hard to make sure Inspired S...

Time to Get Fresh!

Last Reply by abbymay 1342633876.337 | in Beauty Banter, Hosts & Personalities

A few weeks ago, I went to New York to spend the day with Lev Glazman, the co-founder of Fresh. Lev and I had worked together a few times and I was familiar with the Fresh products we present on air, but I didn’t know very much about the brand outside of QVC. Now that we have a one-hour show coming up, it was time to learn more. Lev suggested that we meet in Manhattan at the Fresh store in Union Square. That day, it rained all morning and then turned gray and muggy. However, stepping inside the store was like entering a bright, clean, fragrant utopia. I can only describe it as Fresh. In ...

New Neuropeptide Nécolletage TSV

Last Reply by gismyrock 1341184480.287 | in Beauty Banter, Perricone MD, TSV Talk

Your neck can indicate your age. A neck that doesn't appear youthful can exaggerate facial aging and add years to overall appearance. You can hide your face with cosmetic procedures and makeup, but short of wearing a scarf, your neck is always revealed. The neck and décolletage areas are exposed to damaging environmental factors the most, yet they're so often neglected. Therefore, they're one of the first areas to show signs of aging. As we age, a variety of factors, which include weight fluctuations, lifestyle and environmental factors (overexposure to sun and cold weather), the natu... Continue Reading

Title: The 411 on Neuropeptides

Last Reply by BRITNEYBEAR 1343102436.14 | in Beauty Banter, Perricone MD, TSV Talk

We’ve all heard of peptides and neuropeptides before. We know they’re some kind of molecule, sound pretty scientific, and are an important component in our antiaging regimen…sounds good so far. Alright, so we’ve decided we need to have peptides in our skin care. But do we know what these complex little miracles really are? I’m lucky to work closely with many of the masterminds and skin-care gurus in the industry, so I thought I'd get the 411 on neuropeptides from one of the iconic innovators who has truly helped revolutionize the industry, Dr. Nicholas Perricone...

My First Fresh Moments!

Last Reply by LovemyBE 1340982432.353 | in Beauty Banter

In 1993, Alina and I created a small collection of oval soaps. We wrapped each one by hand with ornate paper, tied it with a delicate wire, and topped it with a semiprecious stone—all while sitting at our kitchen table! The scents were amazing, the formulas were luxurious, and they were the start of Fresh as we know it. We’ve come a long way from our kitchen table, but Alina and I still travel the globe seeking out natural ingredients used in time-honored traditions. Our proprietary Umbrian Clay of Nocera Umbra, Italy has been used in therapeutic treatments since the 6th century B... Continue Reading

Perricone Products Pack a Punch

Last Reply by the dog cookie lady 1390072539.413 | in Beauty Banter, Perricone MD

It was 4-1/2 years ago when my skin really started to change for the worse. I was entering pre-menopause and could tell my skin was much drier and was really beginning to show the signs of aging. I noticed I was starting to look older when I looked in the mirror and I wanted to do something different to see if I could slow down the aging process just a bit. I ran into Dana Bledsoe at QVC one day and even though I had presented Dr. Perricone products before with her, I had not tried them personally. I told her my sob story, and right away she said, "You need to try Dr. Perricone's neuropeptide... Continue Reading

Video Shoots, Hip Moms & a New bareMinerals Fan

Last Reply by ninalin 1347076687.92 | in Beauty Banter, bareMinerals

Hey everyone! How’s your summer going? Hope you’re relaxing, having fun, and finding some new favorite bareMinerals products (we had so many new goodies for you in our May shows!). On Facebook, I shared that I’m digging my summer makeup routine: a touch of concealer, a light layer of bareMinerals Matte Foundation, then READY Touchup Mineral Veil (to control any summertime shine), and a layer of READY Skinny Dip Bronzer, which I think is the secret to making my skin look polished and refreshed…try it! My whole routine is so easy, simple, and leaves my face looking flawl... Continue Reading
