Re: Coldwater creek

In Beauty Banter 1396970338.377

A few years ago I told my husband that if he ever wanted to buy me anything!! just go to CWC. For the past couple of years that hasn't been the case but recently I have again found many things I like. I do wait for items to go on sale which they inevitably do and now I have a $20 coupon which I guess I better use soon. I will miss them. Not too many stores left. Fortunately, Macy's is doing well!!! Continue Reading


Re: O/T: Question for experienced cruisers

In Beauty Banter 1396830437.513

On every cruise line we've been on--NCL, Celebrity, HAL, Carnival, RC--the tips were mandatory and automatically charged to the bill and if we get the "open seating" they must be prepaid. We have no problem with that since all the service people work very hard. We do eat most of our meals in the dining room--like being served!! As far as the beverage packages it depends. HAL has a good deal, Celebrity not so much. We always book our excursions through the ship and ahead of time. All the tix are waiting for us when we get to our stateroom. I like to plan ahead! and not being concerned a... Continue Reading


Re: Am I the only one who has lost interest in cleaning?

In For the Home Talk 1396707995.7

I completely agree. I'm in my mid 60s, don't work and clutter is not the problem in our home. But I used to be more disciplined about housework now I do it when I have to. Fortunately, hubby is even less critical than I am, so once every 2-3 weeks for cleaning is about my schedule. I also feel this way about dieting. I could lose 10-15 pounds and when I was younger I would have gone to WW by now. But I think it's just easier to buy larger clothes!! No motivation at all!!! Continue Reading


Re: Jane Tracy Denim & Co Show!

In Fashion Talk 1396631292.95

I didn't see this particular show but I agree way too much time is spent on one item. I don't understand why they do this. 5 minutes should be the max on any item except maybe electronics. I would think they'd want to show as many products as possible in an hour. All the other shopping channels seem to do a better job at this than QVC. Continue Reading


Re: What do you carry for essentials while on a cruise?

In All About Handbags 1396293680.937

You don't need to carry much while on the ship. Basically your stateroom card. The ships I've been on sell small pouches which I found come in very handy for the card, tissue, lipstick. On shore a small cross body bag and tote for umbrella, jacket, any purchases will work. Keep it simple and lightweight. Bon voyage! Continue Reading


Re: fashion shows HSN and SHOPHQ

In Fashion Talk 1396053862.817

I have about 3 times the number of items in my HSN "favorites" list than I do in my QVC "wish" list. Have bought more fashion from HSN in the past year but except for Kate & Mallory on Shop HQ not so much from them and except for an IM dress, nothing from QVC. Continue Reading


Re: Microfiber sheets

In For the Home Talk 1396047623.71

I had some microfiber sheets from HSN. Started to pill quickly and a lot of static. Lasted one season and then into the donation bag. No more for me. I like 100% cotton or poly/cotton blend much better. Continue Reading


Re: quality control issues

In Isaac Mizrahi Live! 1395936015.8

If I were you, I would stick to the retailers I know. I am amazed at some of the posts here where people send back so much of what they ordered. The cost must be astronomical!! If I were returning items to a b&m store that much I would stop shopping there. I think for a lot of people QVC is an addiction. Most of the items they sell can be found elsewhere at better prices.

Re: Nikki Poulos

In Fashion Talk 1395790998.33

I don't have a maxi dress from her but last year I did buy a knee length dress. I'm 5'6", 150 lbs. and take a medium in SG and D&C but got the large in Nikki's line. It fits perfectly. I would check the measurements for the particular item and order accordingly. I'll be looking for more clothing from her. Very satisfied. Continue Reading
