Sitting here watching the Bare Minerals complexion rescue stick presentation.  When they showed shades, not one of the several models was a blonde. I find it’s getting harder and harder to get a color match with QVC make-up brands. 😐

That's actually cheap for them. Most of the tops are closer to $100.

Lazy OAP doggie slept all the way through the presentation of H213852 Paulato By Gaico Stretch Furniture Slipcover.

The OAP said her dog went everywhere with her, so she brought him to the presentation. She didn't give his name. He never stood up, so I couldn't see his whole body,, but he looked like a small or young German shepherd, very pretty. I guess he was a good representative of the use of the cover, since most pets enjoy sleeping on the people sofa.

He did stretch his legs one time, but otherwise he just took it easy. Good for him, sleeping in on Saturday morning.

I've never shopped at Aldi's, although one opened relatively close to my home last summer.  Now, though, Lidl's is making a push in our state, with a new store opening in the mall, taking over a space that used to be Sears.

I looked at their circular online to see what they had and was surprised to see that on the 12th and 13th only, they'll be selling Rastelli Preferred 10 oz. striploin steaks for $4.39 each.

We have Lidl in this area. I didn’t realize they sell Rastellis meat. The thing that surprised me about the stores is how everything is organized.  On one side of my cart is freezer/refrigerated items and on the other side of the aisle is outdoor stuff. 🤔
 

My mom has a freezer full of Rastelli steaks from QVC auto delivery, and my dad made her cancel the AD. 😂 It is convenient for them, but the steaks are full of fat—at least the ones she’s gotten from QVC have been. I’ve gotten better cuts of meat from Walmart.

And the grade is what?

Lidl's flagship is in Germany. They just opened one near me too and it's always very busy.

So at the start of ITKWD he already sold over 5,000 books!

Q now selling QVC bday mugs!! Lots of colors.

David is schilling his new cookbook that QVC basically self publishes and sells on the air because without it no one buy it. LOL!!! All I have to say is the cover picture of David is super creepy. They must have taken a thousand pictures and they went with that one?!?!? I’m sorry but that will be a hard pass from me. That said, they sold over 500 in the first five seconds David started selling it. I’m sure another book is already in development.

For the record, I like Aldi; supposedly getting a Lidl nearby.  Construction has resumed at the latter after the 4-alarm fire decimated the original retail/housing project (now there's a place I'd be confident moving into).

I thought he was looking at a spice jar or something. His head does take most of the picture though. A picture further away along with the food is the standard 101 from most cookbooks I’ve seen. That said, I don’t even own a cookbook. In fact, I need to get one to use when I stage my kitchen for real estate pictures for when I move. I’ll try the dollar store first. LOL!!!!!

Forgive me, I don't remember who said this today, but whoever it was that said most of Big Dave's "recipes" are off the containers of the manufacture or could be found on the internet for free is right!

Case in point:  Chris Pryme was eating and raving about his pina colada cake, a recipe from his book, that she said we'd have to wait until October to get.  

SMH.  My great grandmother in Kentucky was making pina colada cake back when I was a kid (she lived to be 104 and passed away when I was roughly 20 years old).  Google it - it's prolific and super easy....open a can can of crushed pineapple, use a yellow cake mix (or the Pineapple Supreme cake mix is really good!), get a container of white frosting (my great grandma used Cool Whip), put some maraschino cherries on it from a jar......voila!  Pina Colada cake!  This is RIGHT UP HIS ALLEY!

He's hardly setting the cooking world on fire here.

Yes, and they also had to raise the ceilings so all the swelled heads would fit.

And install larger windows so all the hot air could get out.

I wasn't paying complete attention, but they were saying that the book was selling at the rate of 1,000 a minute and I think they said that over 70,000 had been ordered. It must be that special email invitation you get 24 hours after you purchase the book. What happens if you get the email and then cancel the book - do they kick you out of the FB group?

I’m guessing they’ll send out Facebook private group invitations/links when the orders have shipped. Would be interesting to see if the FB private group members get dropped if they return the cookbook for a refund. 

My mom placed a phone order during his show today and mentioned how the rep seemed rushed to get off the phone. She ordered several items to be shipped to different addresses as gifts, and she said she realized after she hung up that she wasn’t asked if she wanted to include a message like they’ve done in the past. I figured they were swamped with cookbook orders.

Several weeks ago ITKWD (or was it his Wednesday show?) featured ‘behind the scenes’ videos of Divine Dave’s cookbook photo shoots.

The cover is a rigged refrigerator shot. Two doors and shelves (but no refrigerator) were propped up with cameras shooting from ‘inside’ while he was on the ‘outside’ looking in. Perhaps there is a link to the videos.

Considering each book has been a dumbed-down version of the one before…what’s left?

I have an idea for the next…

“The Lazy Man’s No Cooking Guide to Feeding Your Face”

The book would list the best bakeries in every city.

The cover would feature Diva Dave putting candles on a thawed Sara Lee coconut cake. Glossy photos of him scooping fresh snow for snow cones, glopping raw Pillsbury cookie dough on top of ice cream and eating sticks of butter would grace the interior pages of this fascinating addition to your kitchen library.

Next cookbook:  Recreate Your Leftovers.

Recreate what you cooked last night or acquired via delivery!

(Honestly, I found a breakfast strata recipe that uses leftover pizza and it's great.)

The book doesn't ship until October and the link was supposed to be sent 24 hours after the order. Maybe they want people to be breathless with anticipation for all that waiting time and talk about how they can't wait. Plus, I think maybe there were a few special secret recipes on there JUST for the FB members.

One of the questions asked was whether the recipes would be ruined if she swapped veggies for the meat. It's going to be a long time until October!

The spurtle lady just had a commercial on StartTV.  Two sets for $19.99 with the skinny spurtles thrown in for free.  No colors offered, however.  Just plain wood.  I guess Mad Hungry is not a QVC exclusive.

Mrs. Shrug just received another e-mail saying an item she ordered was unavailable for immediate shipment and would be delayed (if they get additional inventory) or cancelled. This item was a QVC2 Big Deal, so it's not like it was something obscure she found in the far corners of their web site. 🤦‍♂️

Looks like the same DynaTrap that I bought as a TSV 3 months ago is going to be the TSV again this weekend. 🤷‍♂️

I actually ordered from QVC this week, something I haven't done in a good while, maybe early 2020, or even 2019 sometime.  The order was placed on Monday 6/7, I received notice of shipment yesterday, and today, UPS sends me an email that the item will be delivered tomorrow!  Color me surprised.

An Air Innovations fan like one I purchased a couple years ago, and I really like it.  Apparently, it was produced for QVC only, as I was unable to scare one up outside of QVC.

Wasn't it JUST the TS on HSN? I am pretty sure it was because that is where my return is going! I wasn't sure about it in the first place, but they don't tell you  it has to be plugged in, so I didn't even open it - just sent it back. I assumed it had batteries because they never showed a power cord running through the yard.

Has anyone purchased those Temptations oven gloves?

Here is my journey with them (no sobs included in story):

I ordered a pair a year or so ago, but keep forgetting that I had them, and continued to use the old school ones.

Today, I saw them in a drawer, had something in the oven ready to come out after heating at 425 for an hour, and got them on.

When I picked up the hot item, I could feel an uncomfortable warmth, bordering on hot as hell coming through the gloves.

Is this not the product with which they pick up the boiling hot tea kettle?

I did put them in the washing machine when I got them, but not the dryer.

Maybe I washed all of the magic off of them.

Well that’s scary and concerning.  Does the heat thing lose its power over time?

Might be worth an inquiry to Q or Temptations at the very least, @CandyApple.
