I've always dreamed of living in a small town. A place where life was simple, slow, and easy. A town where everyone knows each other and people look out for each other—a community. But, I also crave the excitement of the big city: the culture, the diversity, the great restaurants, the nightl... Continue Reading

As we speak I’m putting together a super-duper holiday Today's Special Value® collection for you. The idea for this collection came from my skin-pampering visits to traditional Moroccan hammams. Each Argan-infused product in this set is scented with my brand-new Moroccan Escape fragrance—a yummy blend of crisp, fresh pear and sweet Moroccan vanilla, inspired by my grandma Rita's holiday recipe for pear vanilla tart (see below).

The holiday season is almost upon us. It's the time of year for hustling, bustling, shopping, gift wrapping, decorating, and entertaining! We'll be decking many halls, juggling all of our Santa hats, running on a never-ending treadmill, and feeling a little like Rudolph and the other reindeer on December 24!
After all these years, I find one rule to be true: women don't give to themselves the way they give to others. During this season of giving, we women have to take turns giving to each other the way we quietly wish we could give to ourselves. If I were to comb through the StriVectin arsena... Continue Reading

My name is Alexis Murdoch and I have been working for L'Occitane for over 16 years. L'Occitane isn’t just a beauty brand…it's a lifestyle.
I have been working closely with QVC since 1999, and have been the on-air beauty ambassador/expert for L'Occitane on QVC UK since 2000. Back in 2000, I was a 20-something girl with a passion for this amazing brand. I am now a 40-year-old woman, and along the way have acquired a gorgeous Scottish husband called Scott, and have three beautiful but mischievous children (Jamie, 8; Ollie, 6; and Millie, 2). L'Occitane is my "fourth child" and I hav... Continue Reading

I think one of the most fun and/or most significant gifts you can give a girl of any age is a gift of beauty. It allows us to try that item or brand we've always wanted to play with, colors we've never worn, enjoy the splurge we might not make on ourselves, or truly change the way we feel about ourselves. But in any of these cases, it's the gift of feeling beautiful. And that's priceless.

Without a doubt, one of the things I always hope to find wrapped up for me at Chanukah and Christmas (my family celebrates the former, my husband’s the latter), is a set from L’Occitane, preferably one involving shea butter. I’ve been obsessed with their shea butter hand and body creams since my mother bought me my first set from QVC many years ago, before I ever dreamed I’d work here. Last Christmas, I gave my grandmother-in-law a set of assorted scented hand creams, and I literally had to talk myself into not keeping them and buying an alternate gift at the last minut...

Last month, our color cosmetics buyer, Michele, pulled me aside to show me an upcoming beauty Today's Special Value. She was clearly excited as she handed me what looked like a glossy, patent red book. As I opened the beautiful cover, I realized the sleek design was actually concealing a huge makeup palette. This was the smashbox Photo Op Mega Palette I had heard about! I immediately knew it was going to be the perfect luxury gift for the holidays, while still being practical enough that I would want to buy one for myself.
