Estate of Mind

Last Reply by nanaW 1333937684.66 | in Jewelry Talk, Judith Ripka, TSV Talk

When I first launched my Estate Collection in 18K gold many years ago, I ran a series of advertisements with the tag line Estate of Mind Collection.  Since then, my Estate-inspired couture pieces have always been some of my most popular designs, especially my Estate Pia Cuff with Sapphire baguettes.  For quite some time, I have been wanting to bring my QVC customers this classic design, and I am pleased to share that the moment has arrived, and I am proud to announce that my TSV is J266669, Sterling "Pia" Blue Sapphire & Diamonique Hinged Cuff. Rich with detailed sterling silv... Continue Reading

Friday's Topic on LRS: West Coast Chic

Last Reply by Yorkigirl 1333124671.12 | in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities, All About Accessories

L.A. women have a style all their own. I don't know if it's the great weather, or if there's something in the water, but the women there all have a casual, yet sophisticated point of view. Instead of all black, like New York, (which I'm obviously partial to), it's designer jeans and a T-shirt, or an exotic tunic with skinny jeans.   So much of the West Coast fashion is flowy, effortless, and free-spirited. But, while care-free Californians may embrace a more simplified look, they like to finish it with great accessories. A simp... Continue Reading

Over the River & into the Orchard!

I've been fortunate in my life to live in a lot of wonderful places, but I must say, I find the spring season to be so beautiful here in Pennsylvania! The magnolias and forsythia are in full bloom. The birds are nesting and the sun is warm. The earth is changing and awakening a little more each day all around us. And speaking of change, there are so many exciting things to share with all of you! It won’t be long before I move from my current home that sits by the river to a 6.5-acre property—complete with a mid-century, modern, mostly glass house with a view of the pastoral countr...

From Hungary to Harvard: How Dr. Denese Got Her Start

Last Reply by victorianna 1404831111.537 | in Beauty Banter, The Q We Love

I was born in Hungary at a time when life was bleak, with not much for a child to do except study. So, that’s what I did. I studied physics, chemistry, biology, Latin, English, and German. Studying made me feel like I had a connection to the world.    My first experience with skin care occurred when I was nine years old and my aunt began to make her famous bee pollen face cream for the ladies in the neighborhood. Of course I was right there “helping” her. This was when my early passion for developing skin care began. During the time of Communis... Continue Reading

Is Spring here for good?  If so, I am not quite ready.  Don’t get me wrong… I am loving this warm weather that so much of us around the country are enjoying, but it was here all of a sudden!  I usually take a couple of weeks to go through what I have for spring and summer and then transfer over from the cold weather wear.  Keep in mind; with my husband and kids, I am doing this for 5 people.  I see the blooms ready to pop, so I can only hope that we will not have any more freezing temps to damage them.  However, I am sure we will still see some cooler...

Pictures Are Worth More Than 1,000 Words

My husband and I like us. We're our biggest fans. Before our dogs and babies, we had pictures of the two of us all over the house. I don’t have one wedding album, I have seven. It really has nothing to do with liking the way I look. Nine times out of 10, I wake up, look in the mirror, and wonder how I'm going to make something out of the mess I see. It has more to do with liking the way pictures make me feel. At a glance, I'm transported back to a moment or an event. I'm reminded of what it felt like to be at that stage in my life.

Mat Work vs. Machines

Last Reply by Luv2Shop in NC 1352370609.087 | in Health & Fitness, Hosts & Personalities

People ask me all the time why they need an AeroPilates machine when their local gym offers Pilates classes on the mat? It is a great question and Joe Pilates would have answered them with "the magic happens on the reformer and not on the floor". Traditional fitness focuses on the isolation of one muscle at a time with many repetitions, tearing those fibers to create a bulky, over-worked muscle which, in turn, creates a weakness in the attached joint or tightness in the opposing muscle. Our modern, more sedentary lifestyle also forces our poor body to sit for far too long, causing spinal ali... Continue Reading

Henry David Thoreau shed a little light on the subject of design when he wrote, “Always the laws of light are the same, but the modes and degrees of seeing vary.” I love this quote because it shows just how important and how complex light really is.

My friends and clients often turn to me for advice, but the question I most frequently get asked as a colorist is, “How can I best care for my color?” For my first blog post, I thought it would be fun to start by sharing a few of my favorite tips and tricks for ...

I don’t often discuss price, let alone start off a post with it, but this tarte TSV is such an insane value I almost feel compelled. The Miracle of Maracuja 8-piece Skin Smart Collection includes Customer Top-Rated Maracuja Oil, which is normally $46, and tarte’s most popular mascara, which is normally $19…plus all this other great stuff that are hardly mere afterthoughts for (drum roll, please) under $60.

They say everyone’s Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. Well, this Saturday we’ll have the “luck of the Irish” in AM Style! Friends from Ireland are bringing beautiful sweaters, jewelry and more. No matter where your roots originate, you can join in the fun and celebration. It will be the “Top of the Morning” for sure. In the spirit of all things Irish, I wrote a limerick.

Learn Some Gaelic Phrases and Irish Sayings! Plus, Find Out What Fragrances of Ireland Has Coming Your Way!

Last Reply by maddiek 1332606073.467 | in Beauty Banter, Hosts & Personalities

Good morning, everyone. It's now March, which means two things to me right now: Firstly, spring is coming to Ireland, and we can feel the warmth of the sunshine here, see daffodils blooming, and the yellow gorse bush come into flower all around us. Secondly, Ireland's National Day, St.Patrick's Day, is coming on March 17th and, with it, the Irish shows on QVC. Normally, the lovely Barbara Campbell presents our products on-air for us, but she has just had a baby girl, Eliza, so you've got me out of retirement instead. I'm really looking forward to appearing again, and we have a lovely new produ... Continue Reading

Friday's Topic on LRS—The Look: "American Woman"

Last Reply by yoyin 1332768298.953 | in Fashion Talk, All About Accessories, All About Handbags

When you think of American sophistication and luxury, two designers immediately come to my mind: Ralph Lauren and Michael Kors. These gentleman took the European concept of luxury as a starting point and went on to infuse it with an energy and point of view that makesit uniquely American. I like to think of Ralph Lauren as creating the design heritage, and Michael Kors as making it look like it just got off a private plane.  Their looks are a mix of elements: always elegant, a little unexpected, and never "paint by number." I like to study them, whether I'm wearing them or ... Continue Reading

The Wearin' of the Green!!

Last Reply by nexus 1333414224.257 | in Fashion Talk, Jewelry Talk, Hosts & Personalities

I just got back from Savannah, GA. They were about to "green the fountains" in honor of St. Patrick's Day. It seems that in Savannah, March 17th is one of the biggest celebrations, even the airport was dripping in shamrocks and green garland! It made me realize that no matter what our heritage, we all love celebrating Ireland on March 17th. Last year, we took our first family trip to the Emerald Isle with the four of us (last time, Cara was two and Deirdre wasn't quite here yet!). You may know I inherited my love for Ireland from my Mom, and was she watching over us that week! In fact, I just... Continue Reading

Last week I told you I'd make an announcement about changes to our Wednesday morning programming soon. Well, I'm so excited that the time has come for me to share this exciting news, and I hope you'll be just as thrilled as I am! Beginning on Wednesday April 4, the My Time with Mary Beth weekly show will change to Liz Claiborne New York. My dear friend Linda Davies and I will present the latest fashions from the Liz Claiborne New York line we all know and love.

My Cup Runneth Over

Last Reply by Brenda61 1385631051.22 | in Kitchen & Food Talk, Coffee Talk, Hosts & Personalities

Mood: Spring-like and happy What's in my cup: Cafe Escapes Chai Latte with whipped cream on top (my new favorite, thanks to a new Facebook friend). It appears spring has sprung here on the East coast! Today, my four-year-old boys and I have been outside enjoying the beautiful weather! We've been blowing bubbles, decorating the sidewalk with chalk, and swinging as high as we can on the swings. "Our feet almost touched the clouds," as Brady and Cole would say. I love getting outside and enjoying the fresh air. Though it was a mild winter, it certainly has seemed like a long one. Hope you're&nb... Continue Reading

Countdown to St. Patrick’s Day: Killarney Crystal’s Preparations and Tips on How to Be Irish

Last Reply by JLLH358 1331767304.777 | in Jewelry Talk, For the Home Talk, Hosts & Personalities

Well, the preparations for St. Patrick’s Day are well underway in the Claffey household. The kids are full of the excitement of the season. The renditions of the history of St. Patrick are nothing short of hilarious – what they lack in factual information, they more than make up for in passion. Once schoolwork is out of the way, they are ready to get creative. The requests for green and gold coloured ribbons, coloured cards, pipe cleaners (green, of course) and double sided tape are almost constant. I cannot wait to see the wonderful creations that will decorate our home for the ne... Continue Reading

Introducing Our New Irish Insights Blog!

Hello everyone! With St. Patrick’s Day just a few days away, the excitement is building at QVC and final preparations are well underway for our St. Patrick’s Day Celebration, which is very near and dear to my heart. Every year, I travel to Ireland to select beautiful Irish products to share with you, our QVC customers, and I am always discovering new, special treasures every time I visit. For instance, while I was visiting my parents in Cratloe, Ireland, I was doing some shopping and came across the beautiful, handmade Ballymorris Pottery and had the privilege of meeting Hannah Ar...
