LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION…HELLCANDY, LIZ EARLE & QVC!

Today was a super special day for me as this morning I got to attend a fantastic Liz Earle blogger event!
Held at QVC’s London headquarters, myself and three lucky bloggers got the chance to see exactly how the shopping channel operates with an exclusive backstage tour of the office and studios, visiting various sets and seeing Liz Earle herself (!) in action, live on air!

Here I am with the lovely Beautywowza at QVC HQ

It’s funny as the first Liz Earle products I ever bought were from QVC and that was way over 10 years ago now. I use to watch the shopping channel round my boyfriends house as his mum was a huge QVC addict. Back then Liz Earle wasn’t available to buy in many places and QVC always had (and still do have!) fabulous bargains on her beautiful products.

The tour was huge amounts of fun and the general vibe around the studios was an immensely fun and buzzing one…so much going on from food preparation for the kitchen features, model sourcing for fashion shows to witnessing presenters prepping themselves for their allotted air time.

It’s amazing how the channel works. Presenters are given no scripts to work from, with all research being carried out beforehand. To give us a real flavour of what it’s actually like to present on QVC we were each given the opportunity to do a mock audition, complete with studio, film crew, presenter and cameras…EEEPPP!

We each had 5 minutes to talk about Liz Earle’s Cleanse & Polish and after an initial scared rabbit moment I settled into my little role and yappered away!

I think the most important tip we were given prior to filming was to be theatrical, as general every day talk can come across as slightly monotoned on film. Basically if we didn’t feel like we were almost in a panto then we needed to up our game a bit ;)

We were all given a DVD of our performances and I’m in two minds as to whether I should upload it to my blog…slightly self conscious!

All in all it was definitely one of my favourite beauty blogging events so far..so much fun and with such lovely QVC and Liz Earle (who looks amazing) and her wonderful staff on hand to really make us feel welcome! Huge thanks to everyone :)

Last but not least, it wouldn’t be right if I didn’t give you my top Liz Earle deal on QVC eh? SOO..here it is:
