Day two of the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen

Last Reply by Chuckr 1308609939.467 | in Kitchen & Food Talk, Hosts & Personalities

  My second day here in Aspen at the FOOD & WINE Classic started off on a rainy note.  We were a little worried, but before long the sun came out and it was beautiful.  Cool, but beautiful. My first task for the day was to get some great shots of Aspen from up Smuggler's Mountain Road.  I'm really not sure that a mini van should have been driving up that road, with the rocks protruding and the scary drop off on one side, but we'll do anything to bring you a great shot!  The hikers thought we were crazy, but they didn't have to carry a big camera, did they!  ...

Jeanne Just Had Fun

Last Reply by highperformance 1311268590.84 | in Fashion Talk, Quacker Factory, Hosts & Personalities

Earlier this week we were all saddened by the news of the passing of our dear friend Jeanne Bice. I thought I would take this opportunity to remember her and the friendship, joy, and light that she shared with all of us. Like everyone who knew her, I was inspired by Jeanne’s spirit and zest for life. When I was a relatively new host, I had one of my biggest successes at the time thanks to Jeanne. I was the kickoff host for her Today’s Special Value. Because I was still new, and the expectations were high, I was understandably nervous. But Jeanne wasn’t worried a bit. I sat d...

How I Learned to Stop Forgetting my Cell Phone!

Whew! What a crazy last few weeks of school. There’s always a frantic rush that happens in June, where we celebrate another year down and welcome the summer, but somehow this year was even more hectic than normal. Piling onto all the normal school drama, my mother-in-law, her sister, and their two dogs temporarily moved into our basement while waiting for their house to close; Alexandra got a sinus infection, followed by double ear infections; Memae hosted an “end-of-the-year” party; and Caden, bless his heart, split his chin open AGAIN (this was the 4th time).

Update on The Food & Wine Classic

In Kitchen & Food Talk, Hosts & Personalities

Hi, everyone. What a day I had yesterday! I left Philadelphia in the morning and by 3 p.m. MST, I was chatting with our friends at FOOD & WINE magazine at the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen, Colorado! I flew to Denver and then drove over the Continental Divide and Independence Pass on my way to Aspen. The road was a little hair-raising with a straight drop on one side into a serious gorge, and not even a guard rail to slow you down! There was snow everywhere, and we even saw Telemark skiers on the side of the road! Once I made it to Aspen, I had just a few minutes to freshen up and the... Continue Reading

Don’t worry I am using the same radiant color of 18K green gold you have come to know and adore mixed with our first love, perfectly polished sterling silver. It is fabulous as it blends beautifully with all of your past Ann King styles with 18K green gold. It is priceless! The look is true, the value is there, and like me, I know you are going to love it.

Birki's TSV Teaser!

In Fashion Talk, All About Accessories

Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes at QVC to prepare for a fashion show? Well, long before I worked here, I often wondered as a faithful viewer and customer what really happens. Who styles the outfits that the models wear? How is it decided what they wear and how they wear it? Now that I work here (I’ve been at QVC as a fashion stylist for 10 years), I now know the answer to those questions. There’s so much that’s involved to produce a live show — you could never imagine what it entails. There's months of company-wide planning before I ever get my han... Continue Reading

Resident Renaissance Man - Taste of the Month - June 2011

Summer is finally here! As your Resident Renaissance Man, I plan on getting out and having all kinds of adventures these next few months. I’ve already spent some time at the shore, the lake, and of course, around the house. In fact, I’ve been working around some other houses as well. I took on a side job building out a spare room in my future in-laws' house. (For those looking for an "official" announcement, it's true, I'm engaged to the lovely Tracey!)

Wow! Time flies. We're almost ready for our June 17th Today’s Special Value. This time, Birki’s has brought you a toe-loop sandal in our classic footbed. The color palette is great! It’s composed of navy, mocha, silver (light gray), champagne, and the ever-so-hot coral, plus the Birko-Flor upper has a patina finish to it. I would describe it as having a very light (and I mean, very light) glimmery sheen to it, which is more visible on the darker shades and when the sun hits it. If you're nervous about the toe loop, don’t be. These don't rub in between my toes at all. I... Continue Reading

In dedication to Jeanne Bice whose positive energy will live on in all of us. Jeanne was very special and touched not only me, but every person she met. She had a bright wit, engaging personality and was always up for a great conversation. I'll remember her kindness and sensitivity. Jeanne sparkled and shined off air as well as on.

Hanging Out with Mother Nature

In Electronics Talk, Hosts & Personalities

When I was just a kid, the outdoors just seemed like the normal place to be. That's what you did when you were a child in the Midwest — you went outside to play. You didn't think about it, because it was as normal as breathing air. To stay indoors was to be punished. It meant there were chores to do or work that had to be done. You were grounded for whatever prison term mom dictated was fair and humane punishment (I think I was grounded for life one time for shaving the cat…DON’T do that) and kept inside. The point here is that now, as an adult, I can truly respect Mother N... Continue Reading

I had to read an announcement Saturday night. It was just a few minutes past 8 p.m. ET. I’ll never forget that moment. I had to read from a small white piece of paper the words that Jeanne Bice had passed away. How is that possible? My producer had to tell me before I went on air. It was still new news and no one in the building short of me and her knew. As soon as she told me, I burst into tears.  I didn’t know Jeanne nearly as well as some other hosts…especially those that had worked with her for the total 16 years she was at QVC.

There wasn’t a time when we passed each other in the hall at QVC, or at our hotel, that she didn’t come over and put her hand on mine and say something positive.

Last Reply by wynokka 1309841346.4 | in Fashion Talk, Hosts & Personalities, All About Accessories

All my life, I’ve had really great girlfriends. In first grade, Rhonda, who had moved to California from Michigan, became my bff because we lived one block apart, walked the same route to school and, as luck would have it, both ended up in Mrs. Carter’s class. By high school, my circle of friends had expanded to include my neighborhood pals, pep squad pals, journalism club pals, and a few other select friends – including Arlene who was the first in our circle to get her own car – so she was everyone’s bff. I traveled half-way across country to attend college, an... Continue Reading

Vicenza Wrap-up & Chaz Dean's All-new Product

Last Reply by kbvirginia 1336783094.907 | in Beauty Banter, WEN, Hosts & Personalities

Did you enjoy Vicenza?! I know some of you did from your blog comments and Facebook posts. (Thanks for reaching out!) I thought we had an amazing show. And the pieces we offered this year were just out of this world. Seriously. So incredibly gorgeous. I hope you found a few new favorites!   So, I’m finally back in the states. But, I’m not technically “back” (at QVC) just yet. This week, I’m visiting my family near Lake Tahoe. (I swear, when we’re not visiting, I’ll be sleeping.) Until then, here’s a little something to celebrat... Continue Reading

Kinect, Kinect, Kinect!

In Electronics Talk, Hosts & Personalities

After three days of wandering the show floor at the Electronics Entertainment Expo, there’s one thing I can say with absolute certainty: this is going to be a good year for Kinect. Developers and publishers were out in force, showing off everything they had to offer for 2011 and 2012. While some big-name games stole the show, there’s no doubt that Microsoft left with a smile on their face after seeing how many developers are planning on supporting Kinect in 2011. With Doublefine’s Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster, Dance Central 2, Kinect Disney Land Adventures, and a boatl... Continue Reading

Accessorize the Dell Notebook!

In Electronics Talk, Hosts & Personalities

If you’re considering picking up the Today’s Special Value® for 6/12, there are a few other products I suggest you check out, too. While not necessary to use with the Dell notebook, they’ll certainly make your time with it even more enjoyable!     Sooner or later, you’re going to want to move your notebook computer. Sure, it’s not too heavy, but a little extra protection can go a long way. That’s where the SlipIt Pro neoprene case for 15” notebooks (E167053) and 17” notebooks (E167193) comes in. It has a zip closure and a handy... Continue Reading

Dreaming of Vacation!

Last Reply by CM2 1308014843.35 | in Beauty Banter, Fashion Talk, All About Accessories

Hi PM Style ladies!   How are you? I just cannot seem to wake up today! Do you ever have a day like that? I had coffee, it’s sunny outside, I got plenty of sleep, BUT I just can’t seem to shake the yawns. Ironically, I just yawned (for real) right after typing that last sentence. LOL!    So, what did you think of the show? I thought that the smashbox BB cream was my favorite item, but I also loved the Susan Graver top I was wearing. I’m hoping to get my hands on the BB cream in just a few days and will let you know what I thin...

PlayStation Vita Is Going to be the Gift to Get This Holiday

In Electronics Talk, Hosts & Personalities

A few months ago, Sony announced that they were going to be releasing a new handheld gaming system. The “NGP”, as they called it, would continue in the company’s trend of delivering high-quality portable products that deliver an experience similar to what you can get out of a home console. This week in LA, they finally unveiled details on exactly what gamers have to look forward to. It’s called the Vita (it means “life”), and it’s ready to rock your socks clean off. It sounds like the dream of everyone to ever play a game. It has a multitouch scre... Continue Reading

Nintendo Unveils Wii U – Successor to the Wii

Last Reply by gardenman 1307709170.123 | in Electronics Talk, Hosts & Personalities

What an exciting day! Nintendo, as promised, revealed their next home console, and it’s revolutionary — to say the least. It’s called Wii U, because, as Nintendo President Satoru Iwata said, it’s about “you” this time. While it still has everything you love about the Wii, including the ability to use ALL of the Wii’s popular peripherals to play games with (including the Wii Fit board), it also comes with hugely upgraded hardware and a new, amazing controller. The controller features two analog sticks, two shoulder buttons, four face buttons, a camera... Continue Reading
