Are we supposed to be amused by "Beach Week"?...IDC if they are filming from a beach house, it's just another home to be envious of (David Dangle's being the most enviable) 😄

It says Moulin Rouge under the windmill, so that's appropriate. But doesn't make up for having Fransais right there on the front of the shoulder where everyone can see it. C'est dommage !

Just clicked onto Gourmet Holiday…$38 a pound for chocolate bark????  Are they insane?  Maybe they think their audience can’t multiply 4 X 4?

The Lindt OAP is bland.  The selection of truffles included in today's TSV is somewhat uninspiring.  A holiday offering without a chocolate-peppermint combo?  I picked up a bag last December at CVS which had 2 different kind of chocolate-peppermint truffles.

I don't speak French, but I believe the Francais should be written as francais in that example?

QRate should really have a stern talking-to with their Asian supplier, their Asian supplier's quality control supervisor, their Asian supplier's quality control supervisor's IT liason, and the Asian supplier's quality control supervisor's IT liason's software designer.

The grammar check isn't working.

You are right about the lowercase.  If it's an adjective or being used in reference to the French language one uses français. 

At least they didn't do phonetic spelling of the Parlez-vous (Parlay voo?).

I have to say, I'm getting a kick out of the reviews for the Paris inspired D&Co blouse!  Wouldn't it have been Gary's responsibility to review the pattern before giving the OK for it to be made?  Somebody dropped the ball big time.

She's expecting a baby, I believe in September, so she's going to be getting some planned time off in the near future.

When I've watched her I noticed she took a lot of pauses while she was talking; whether she was pausing to listen to someone talking in her earpiece or figuring out what to say next, or maybe both, I don't know.  She also can come across as unprepared. 

I'm sure she's going to get a "don't ever use that term again, please and thank you", sometime soon, if she hasn't already.

I don't think it was for anything specific but a realization she wasn't cut out to be a host and no amount of extra training was going to help.  She was gone about 4 months after she started on-air.

Alex used vernacular like "da bomb", but nothing outrageous or offensive.  It made her seem unsuitable for the job at hand (in my opinion.)

To me, "wife beater" is street slang completely inappropriate for a shopping channel.

She said, “If you’re ordering in the 0.0 [reader strength] , it’s just a fashion story,  you just are wearing them because you love the eye candy of jewelry on your face.” As someone who went through a lifetime of wearing glasses and contacts before I was finally freed of those things through cataract surgery, I strongly disagree. I absolutely hated glasses. I never considered them as "jewelry for the face." I just wanted to get rid of them.

^This!!!

That term has always bothered me when I have seen used elsewhere like social media for example and to use it on a shopping channel as a selling point…ugh!!  Once again, QVC is making it difficult to want to do business with them letting behavior like this and the bullshit antics of the unwashed one slide right on by with no acknowledgement or punishment of any kind. 

AM Style is almost totally unwatchable now. The other “general” fashion shows..like Fashion’s Night In for example seem to have a better mix than AM Style which is now Breezies, Susan Graver, Renee, endless presentations of beauty items and overpriced accessories. And the prices….yowza! In today’s show, there was a basic animal print SG top for $57 and a really plain and basic (in my opinion) Logo top for $56. With tax and shipping…both would be over $60. But they probably will sell tons because they love to slap that “only order this year” graphic up there.

The Q has an LTS of a carved bone pendant!  Jen and Jeff never mentioned the origin of the bones!! Ack!  It is not mentioned in the description and someone questioned it and the question remains unanswered!  No reviews either. I assume it's animal bones but that doesn't sit right with me either and I'm a carnivore.734851184_Screenshot2021-07-2411_08_45AM.thumb.png.f9e6c1bcf4ff16b53b247b1274f89ccb.png941111588_Screenshot2021-07-2411_10_09AM.png.d9151c6a955a61c84c0cff09bd81e69b.png

I’m trying to figure out which is more unsettling:

  • the pendant carved from bones; or,
  • the fact that someone with the handle of “romancewriter” would write that grammar-strangling question.

I'm sorry, but the comparable retail value for the Mattress TSV is a joke (H230062).  $909 for a twin and $519 as the TSV?  And it's a bed in a bag.

BTW, the others are Twin XL $999/$519, Full, $1219/$589, Queen $1399.00/$639 and King/Cal King $1899/$699.

Just watching Jennifer sitting on the end of it makes me know it's a piece of crap.

I'm curious as to what other "QVC" brands are available elsewhere.  I have seen the Spurtel Lady (Mad Hungry) on an infomercial selling the same sets as on QVC.

I wouldn't trust any name brand on Amazon. I've gotten a number of things that were clearly counterfeit.

The lack of tact of some OAPs stuns me sometimes. The DERMAFLASH OAP was talking about what areas the mini precision (A-457443) can be used so the camera shows model Stacy using it on her sideburns and the OAP says actually Stacy is using it where she shouldn't be using it! which caused Stacy to hesitate for a split second and quickly move on to another area. The OAP could've been more graceful by saying something like, "we see Stacy using it near her sideburns, but we actually recommending using it on just the X Y Z areas..."
