  1. Reading these two posts makes me think about two beautiful QVC models: Ade and Stacy. I've heard Ade speak a few times when modeling clothes, and was pleasantly surprised. She has a rich and well-modulated voice. Stacy also speaks on air from time to time, and has a lovely voice as well. Both ladies have been modeling for years and would make great hosts, especially with apparel and jewelry IMO. With everything going on at the Q these days, having a few models as hosts might be a good idea. Perhaps these models can replace a few less than stellar hosts...
  2. Pretty horrid looking indeed, @lovemesomejoolery - and some of those so-called "recipes" makes me want to grab the Mylanta. A couple of years ago, David posted a video on his QVC Facebook page showing a small charcoal grill placed in the middle of a grassy yard. The grill looked like the flames were shooting to the sky. And I remember there were many comments criticizing him (and rightfully so) about the dangers of grilling that way. Now I do like David, but with the money he makes on the Q one would think he'd be cooking outside on a custom-made BBQ grill. Or at least one of those Traeger grills they sell on the Q (Happy Dance optional).
  3. And a seven-figure beach house in Delaware at that! Quite the upgrade from the beach condo in New Jersey - well, good for Jill and Doug! That's my dream too, @ByaNose - I have my eye on a waterfront condo overlooking Long Island Sound. Only four miles away from where I live in my middle-class neighborhood, but a lovely world away! All you need is a dollar and a dream...

    Product Reviews: After Sales

    Regarding my May 23 review of the Samantha Brown 4-piece luggage set on HSN (above), in case anyone is interested, the set is back in all seven colors: Black, Bravo Blue (grayish blue), Burgundy, Koi Orange, Mustard, Nude (blush pink) and Watermelon. However, as of this posting, the colors Koi Orange and Mustard are in limited quantities. The set is now priced at $169.95 with the option of 5 FlexPays of $33.99 each ($15.22 S&H). As I mentioned in my above review, I purchased this set in Nude, which is a beautiful blush pink. Although I have yet to use it for travel, it is very well made. Also, the majority of the reviews on HSN are still 5 stars! https://www.hsn.com/products/samantha-brown-croco-embossed-luggage-4-piece-set/8952009
  5. @TexasTiffany - ITA - and no McCool indeed!
  6. Upon changing the channel a few minutes ago, I passed by QVC2. I had to stop and look at Antonella - I really hate to say this, but that light blonde hair is all kinds of wrong. As I mentioned in previous posts, there are people who can pull off blonde hair, and there are people who can't. Antonella is in the latter group. Her lovely Mediterranean coloring is washed out with that unnatural blonde. I know I'm not the only one who thinks this way, judging from comments here as well as on the QVC forum. Also, given the number of brunette QVC hosts who have recently lightened their hair (including Antonella), I'm wondering if this is some new rule from TPTB over at the Q. Is it because TPTB want some of the ladies to look younger? Well, blonde hair can give a youthful look for some - as long as their skin tone compliments the new hair color. Antonella has such pretty features as well as a great complexion. A darker, richer hair color with subtle highlights would compliment her features - and truly give a more youthful look. Hope that happens soon. JMHO

    Evine: Be Good

    @Coffeecup, Thanks so much for the news about Evine - and I also agree changing the name back to ShopHQ makes so much sense. Wouldn't you know that Optimum (my TV provider in Westchester County, NY) recently announced that Evine will be moving to another channel. Perhaps this might happen when the name changes to ShopHQ. We shall see...

    This past Mother's Day, I decided to purchase the Today's Special on HSN, which was the Samantha Brown Croco Embossed Luggage 4-piece set. The set consisted of an upright spinner suitcase (listed at 22" but actually 21-1/2"), a tote, and two packing cubes. Priced at $149.99, but I took advantage of five FlexPays at $29.99 each, with free shipping to boot! Received the set four days later on the 16th - everything looks great and very well made! There were originally seven colors available, but five of them sold out in a day. The two remaining colors are Black and Nude. My set is in Nude, which is actually a beautiful blush pink. It has a warm brown trim (also croco embossed), and the warm brown/blush pink combo looks very rich, IMO. I intend to use this set for carry-on air travel, as well as car and train travel. Although a light colored set, it's easy to clean any stains. And Samantha Brown makes sure to include great organizational features in her luggage, not a surprise since she is such an expert on travel. The reviews are being posted for this set, and nearly all of them are 5-star (including my review). In case anyone is still interested, this set is still available in the aforementioned Black and Nude, but now priced at $169.95, with FlexPay as well. HSN Item # 655-681. https://www.hsn.com/products/samantha-brown-croco-embossed-luggage-4-piece-set/8952009?query=655681&isSuggested=false# As a FYI, the five colors that sold out were Bravo Blue (a grayish blue), Burgundy, Koi Orange, Mustard, and Watermelon. However, if you are interested in purchasing similar pieces in any of these colors, I would suggest the Samantha Brown Classic Wheeled Croco Embossed Weekender Bag, Item # 655-519, at $99.99. Just a couple of inches smaller than the Upright Spinner. And the tote can be purchased separately; Item # 655-512, at $59.99. FlexPay available for both. https://www.hsn.com/products/samantha-brown-classic-wheeled-croco-embossed-weekender/8950037 https://www.hsn.com/products/samantha-brown-nylon-and-croco-embossed-dowel-bag/8950015 Happy Travels!

    Thanks so much, @artisto Oh, yes - Jean Harlow on the set of "Dinner at Eight". She never looked more beautiful, and that gorgeous gown is one of my all-time faves as well. The days when gowns were gowns, needing their own stand for the wearer, lol. What a great movie, and the last scene with her and Marie Dressler is one for the ages. Remember "The Hollywood Collection"? It was a line of fashion jewelry inspired by old-time movie stars. Replicas of jewelry worn on-screen as well as off-screen. It was on HSN, featuring a host at that time named Charlene Lake. I purchased two rings from this collection: An Art-Deco style ring that was a replica of the one worn by Carole Lombard at the premiere of "Gone With The Wind", and the other was a lovely simulated emerald I purchased for my mother that was a replica of a ring worn by Jean Harlow herself. Would love to see "The Hollywood Collection" come back on a shopping channel. And QVC still sells items from the Elizabeth Taylor Collection as well as the Grace Kelly Collection. Last year, I purchased the "Rue de Paris" necklace from the GK Collection, and it is just beautiful. Classic simplicity, which can be worn casual or dressy. It's a replica of a necklace created by Coco Chanel in the 1920's. The Grace Kelly product rep is Phil Katz, who was the product rep for the Jacqueline Kennedy Collection and is a true gentleman. The link for the necklace is below. https://www.qvc.com/Grace-Kelly-Collection-Rue-de-Paris-Station-Necklace.product.J346317.html
  10. That's too funny, @7EasyPayments - and so David!

    Lol, @Puddy - and just the right size for Samy! 😎
  12. Oh, my - Teeter is on the Q now? Guess because of the QVC/HSN merger. And no surprise that Ms.-I'm-so-fit-I-can't -stand-it is the one doing the hosting. I shudder to think if David would host a future presentation - and even trying to use it!

    @artisto Ah, those glamorous fashions of the 1930's - I believe this lovely lady is Kay Francis? Classic movie lover here. This reminds me of the days when Nolan Miller presented his line of fashion jewelry on the Q. The models were elegantly dressed, many times in evening gowns. I have a number of pieces from this line, as they were very well made. Although on the dressy side, I still incorporate a little bling in my outfits every now and then.

    Thank you so much, @seasons! I rescued Samy five years ago wandering near my home. My special boy kitty, very doglike too. When I leave my house I turn on HSN as he likes the sounds and images. Hasn't ordered anything yet, but then you never know...😎
  15. @Seaside, Thank you for your kind words, and it is much appreciated. And yet another reason why I turned off the Q and watch their sister station HSN instead. Because as I mentioned in another post, it's truly fun there!
