18 miles and a sore ankle later - we did the moonwalk! Plus Bruce, Lola Rose and Bare Minerals webchats; and some of the superb results from our 3MCFeb!
18 May 2015

Benefits of Walking! Benefits of Walking!

Hey all! Well I did the Moonwalk and it was a triumph… of determination, until mile 15 when I twisted my ankle on a curb and three of us ended giving up after 18 miles. That did mean we managed three quarters of a marathon! But we had registered for the full one so we didn’t get a medal, but the other four went on to get theirs. So well done Team QVC! If you didn’t sponsor us and want to, still, now we’ve done it (!) it would add to the nearly £2000 – and we’d be so grateful! The link is here – just click it, even if it’s a low amount, every little helps! Go here.

This weekend was also the end of the Three Month Challenge! I’ve been so proud of everyone on 3MCFeb. There have been some superb updates flying around – many on closed groups like Till the Fat Lady Slims and Bodyblade QVC group. But here are a few quotes to help you understand how fabulous some of the participants have been!

“Advice for others? Well just go for it really. If you don't try it you will never know, I've even cancelled the subscription on the online weightloss group I've been on for 7 years because I know I don't need it now! As far as exercising is concerned, you don't need to do much to make a difference but for me the Body Blade has changed the way I look at exercising! Its easy to use (well once you get into the rhythm lol!) and I'm going to start Leslie Sansone's walking videos too! Freedom eating works - all you need to do is to take the plunge, have faith in yourself. If I can do it, anyone can!” Helen

“I've completed the first 3month challenge and have lost inches as well of pounds gone down a size in clothes (actually think it might be 2sizes but a bit tight still ) so I am up for the new 3month challenge. I can honestly say this has changed my life onward and upward girls :0” Heather, TTFLS

“Non-Scale-Victories for me are getting into a pair of jeggings I'd only worn once before (more than 3 years ago!), exercising more and enjoying it and feeling more energised. But here's the big SV for me ........ as of this morning I weighed.. a whole 11lb less - over the course of the 3 months - which is bang on the target my GP set me - 1/2lb to 1lb a week. That means I'm well on my goal to losing 4 stone before the end of the year! Thank you to everyone on this group and the Body Blade group for you support when I've needed it (which has been often). Going to continue on with this journey and making my family proud of what I've achieved.” Chris, TTFLS

Finally this week, Anne Keating, superstar from the Bodyblade QVC group, has begun a new 3MC – for the next three months! Join the Bodyblade QVC or Till the Fat Lady Slims Facebook groups to find out more and to register and follow their progress.

karen Davies I may not be around later as on a long day, so can I please ask you send my question,

I have collected lola rose for years, my fav piece is my Freddie piece, so my question is what is your favourite piece, can I also ask can we have lola brooches! The..

The classic heart or flower etc I wear lola rose every day, and I own enough pieces to wear three items a day for a year plus a few spares, please keep up the good work, and I love you and your brand ps can we have roger back sometimes too

 

Sharon Harvey hahahahahahahahahahah Karen xx

 

Suzanne Way I love my Lola Rose jewellery. Hopefully the watch has been ordered for me. Although I think your scarves are my favourite. Where do you get your ideas for the scarves xx

 

Ruby Ahmad hey Nikki! been a collector for years. bought my first piece- a bracelet in fenwicks! have so many pieces that i've lost count. wear at least one daily. my fave ring of all time is the honey which i have in blue standstone. would love it if you could make them again, so that i may finally get my hands on a grey agate one.

 

Loraine Elkins Hi Nikki I love Lola Rose and have a growing collection, but would really love more earrings to be available to match necklaces in colourways, little drops or nice studs or heart drops -any chance??

 

Sharon Harvey Weclome Nikki, so lovely to have you here! we are so excited for your shows coming up this Thursday and Friday! Anything in particular we should be looking out for? Any sneaky clues? Hahaha

 

Nikki Gewirtz Hi everyone, very excited to be here with you. Anything you would like to ask me please feel free xx

 

Sharon Harvey Woo Hoo x

 

Alison Scotney Please can we have an Alison bracelet? I have Beryl (my mum) and Hannah (my daughter) in my 100+ Lola Rose collection! xxx

 

nikki Gewirtz Hi Loraine, we are really trying to bring more earings and I think you will notice from next season that there are a lot more in the collection. I am always open to ideas, so if you have any earing designs you would like me to try, send them my way and I will try and have them made xx

 

Nikki Gewirtz Hi Ruby, I am so pleased you are collecting Lola Rose and I hope you still wear some of the vintage pieces. I will have a look into the ring for you and if I can do anything I will get my team to let you know. Do try and send a pic of your collection for me to see x

 

Ruby Ahmad hey Nikki! it would be my pleasure. it's half-term next week and i shall do that then heart emoticon thanks for looking into the honey heart emoticon

 

Sharon Harvey Hi NIkki i love your bracelets i love the jangle noise hahaha! I have decided i need to buy my first necklace... i love these am thinking of getting my sons initials

 

Hi Suzanne, the scarves I find much harder than the jewellery to design and colouring them sometimes sends me crazy and I literally have to go for a walk to clear my head.....I try to only design anything that I would personally love and feel proud to wear and of course with a nod to the trends. The scarves literally make all my daily outfits, I would be lost without them. I think and I hope that Lola has now found a signature look that we can expand on. Heads up though, we are working on a scarf TSV for October and as it is my 15th anniversary I am hoping to do 4 x designs that have something for everyone x

 

Sharon Harvey What was the first necklace you designed and how does an image come to you? x

 

Sharon Harvey oooooohhhhhhhhh SCARF TSV FOR OCTOBER IN CASE ANYONE MISSED THAT hahahahahahahahahahaha x

 

Ruby Ahmad Sharon, i have that necklace. it's such an easy piece to wear. i have both the rose gold and silver tone options

 

Nikki Gewirtz p.s. Loraine, I will look to see if I have any heart earings for you x

 

Alison Scotney Scarf tsv..... me and my neck can't wait!!!

 

Natalie Coe Hi Nikki. Will you be doing a chunky necklace TSV any time soon? X

 

Debbie Try Hi Nikki, I love everything Lola Rose! Please can you make extra small size rings (k) if possible as I love your rings. Also, please could you bring back some of your ditsy print scarves? I own approx 50 of your scarves and wear one every day. A TSV scarf, cannot wait! Thank you x

 

Sharon Harvey Thanks Ruby Ahmad plus i love anything bright and colourful...its like being in a sweet shop with Lola Rose hahaha x

Nikki Gewirtz Hi Karen, that's tricky in many ways....obviously the Freddie and the Oscy bracelets are my all time favs!!!! What is it that you love about the Freddie?? You know for me it is all about the mood I am in that particular day. Sometimes I reach for so...See More

 

Suzanne Way Roll on October. Also any shows in between. Thankyou nikki xx

 

Claire Louise Nikki can u pls bring more coffee colours necklace thank xx

 

Alison Scotney Oh show us a picture of tsv sample - we won't tell anyone!!!!!

 

Sharon Harvey This week Suzanne Way!

 

 

karen Hunt Hi Nikki, just waiting for my Montana watch to arrive. Are there any other areas you are looking to expand into that you can share

 

Nikki Gewirtz Hi Wendy, my heart sank when I read your post. I cant imagine! I am over the moon that all is well now and I am totally honoured to have our own little Lola Rose watching the shows...(my cousin also called her little girl Lola Rose) . Let me know her favourite colour and I will send her something for when she is old enough to wear xx

 

Debbie Flint Nikki!!!! hello sweetie! Enjoy the webchat everyone! Lovely to have such a superstar in our midst, right girls? x

 

Debbie Flint Nikki - would you tell everyone a little secret about your day at the palace? x

 

Nikki Gewirtz Hi Susan, great choices of necklaces. Please will you email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. tomorrow and let them know what you are looking for. I did email our DC today when your post came through to let them know. If you don't get anywhere let me know, hopefully we can find you one xx

 

Anne-Marie Mason Hi Nikki, I'm a 4mm bracelet addict, can't get enough of them, thank you! I love your fringe too, it always looks fab. Please please consider making a 4mm I.D. bracelet soon. I've got to get one soon for medical reasons and they're all so ugly! x

Nikki Gewirtz Hi Dawn, that's great yipeee your first piece of Lola. It looks like Fern Quartzite from the picture, which is for sure one of the best green stones that Lola does. Please do let us know how you get on with it once you receive xx

 

Jessica Mary Love Lola Rose and really made up with the watch - looks amazing smile emoticon. Just wondered if you have any plans to use green sandstone again in any of your jewellery?

 

Sharon Harvey Nikki Gewirtz you are so lovely! You really do go out of your way for your customers and take all feedback on board! Thank you, we Really appreciate you x

 

Nikki Gewirtz Hi ladies you will have to excuse me for 5 minutes as poor oscy is getting his back teeth and has woken up screaming - calpol I think....be back in five xx

 

Sharon Harvey Nikki - i know we cannot make any claims that stones can do certain things, but i do love the stories, mythology and healing benefits behind certain stones. I am drawn to certain items for that reason x

 

Debbie Flint which ones are best sharon?

 

Debbie Flint i love tiger's eye - the different layers - anyone know the meaning attached to that? if there was a teal and turquoise version i'd be in heaven! lol x

 

Ruby Ahmad a few years ago Nikki, i was a runner up in one of your competitions heart emoticon

 

Sharon Harvey Rose Quartz has a gentle energy. It is a heart healer of physical heart ailments as well as emotional heartbreaks. Rose quartz is a timely gift to offer someone who desires to learn self-love.

 

Sharon Harvey for you debbie xTurquoise stone is an advisor of the highest order, little wonder that it was a revered as a spiritual stone by Native Americans.This stone can be used to help one learn spiritual lessons through meditation and/or dream visions.

 

Jacqueline Jackson Hi Nikki I love love love blue sandstone is there anything new coming up? I love the way it sparkles. X

 

Nikki Gewirtz hi ladies, I or rather we are back - you have Oscy as well. Multi tasking x

Sharon Harvey but i love this All varieties of obsidian are good utilized as grounding and protective agents. The snowflake obsidian in particular helps us surrender or let go of negative habits or past pathways that no longer serve your present condition. It can bring about opportunity for change, serenity, and clarity.

 

Dawn Robinson I will do thank you x

 

Sharon Harvey HI Oscy, oh bless hope he is ok xx big kisses xx

 

Nikki Gewirtz Hi Karen, I absolutely love the watches and I am very proud of how they have worked out. There are many more in the watch collection coming up but not until the end of the year. The next one we are launching is a printed one with the scarf prints. I would love to do so much more under the Lola Rose brand, but I need to be careful as I do get carried away. Would be lovely to hear what all of you think should be our next product expansion? let me know how you get on with the watch when you receive it xx

 

Wendy Sheriff Hi Oscy,hope your teeth settle sweetie. Hi Nikki thanks so much for the reply I have sent you a private message and will make sure Lola reads the post tomorrow xxx

 

Nikki Gewirtz Hi Alison, I will definitely. You know me I am not one for rules! The stone mixes have worked out fab. I am not sure if the samples went straight off to QVC today once I had approve them, so I will check and will post as soon as I can x

 

Nikki Gewirtz Hi Claire, do you mean the coffee stone? I adore that stone too. x

 

anne-Marie Mason Ooh, dangerous to ask for ideas Nikki, ha ha. My perfect wrist would have a 4mm watch & a 4mm ID bracelet alongside my bracelets. All in my fave nude tones too. x

 

Nikki Gewirtz Hi Debbie, wow 50 scarves!!!!! I think that even beats my collection. I was only looking at our archive of ditsy prints the other day and thinking of how I could do another one. So will definitely try. Re the extra small rings, what size would be good x

 

Debbie Try Hi Nikki, how about bags being added to your brand? Work bags, cross body bags? X

 

 

Claire Louise Yes sorry coffee stone I love love love it .... It goes with everything xxx

 

Jessica Mary Love the prints do much I would like to have Lola Rose wallpaper smile emoticon

 

Anne-Marie Mason I've got a montana addison on the way to see how it fits with all my 4mm's, can't wait. x

 

Nikki Gewirtz Hi Natalie, the necklace which matches the July TSV is the same size as the Cassidy beads but longer length so I think this might be what you are looking for hopefully x

 

Karen Hunt Will do Nikki. I'd love to see some beautiful tops with prints from your lovely stones, like Montana, flower agate etc

 

Debbie Try What date in July is your next TSV Nikki? x

 

Nikki Gewirtz Hi Maureen, I could speak about your question for hours on end! Again it really does depend on my mood of the day and I am so ridiculously fickle that I change my mind all the time. There are some clear favourites though. Grey Agate, I think is so sophisticated and an easy stone to wear. Red Plum Agate is my favourite at the moment and we have a scarf coming up next week which uses the same tones and I literally have been living in it. The flourites are very special and when I wear them they just make me feel great. Blue Sandstone for evening with Black Agate. In the summer I love Rose Quartz and the new pastel blues and pinks. I am not answering this one very well am I??? What are your favourite stones xx

 

Wendy Sheriff Hi Nikki,will you be bringing back Blue Jasmine and Rock Crystal in the Stacey necklace love it!! Xx

 

Sharon Harvey Hahahahahaha x

 

Nikki Gewirtz Hi Karen, me too. And I don't understand why fashion designers don't do more flutter sleeved A line tops with a longer length. I think I would just like to do one flattering top in all my prints x

 

Debbie Try Thank you replying Nikki. Re ring size, my ring finger is a size K. And re ditsy print scarves, I will keep my fingers crossed x

 

Nikki Gewirtz oooh Anne Marie that sounds delicious x

Nikki Gewirtz Jessica, we did have some wallpaper made for our new offices, I will take a picture for you. We had poodles, butterflies and all the way up the stairs is our pink Montana stone blown up - would love to do that too x

 

Nikki Gewirtz Debbie, I think bags will hopefully be my next extension when I have the time x

 

Wendy Sheriff Wallpaper sounds lovely hope you are able to do that Nikki xx

 

Debbie Try Thank you for your time Nikki. Cannot wait for your shows this week, I'll be watching. X

 

Nikki Gewirtz Hi Gorgeous Debbie Flint, my day at the palace was so special and even more special because I met Prince William!!!! He was so lovely and made me at ease immediately. I had a very long informal chat with him and broke protocol in the first 3 seconds by calling Kate his gorgeous wife instead of HRH (which we had been briefed to do 30 seconds before). He did not even flinch! After the Palace and both my boys running around like they were at home. Imagine this transformers, dummies, muslins and cars strewn over BP, we went for a gorgeous family lunch. Then partied the night away at Lola Rose Head Office. Had a very special guest named Debbie Flint xx

 

Wendy Sheriff So well deserved too Nikki can't wait for the shows xx

 

Sharon Harvey Awwwwwwwww x

 

Anne-Marie Mason Bags with matching scarves please. x

Nikki Gewirtz Hi Sharon, firstly thank you to you and Debbie for setting up and managing such a brilliant and safe and troll free group, you do a fantastic job....so big hugs. The meanings of the stones are so important to me and although I don't make a big fuss about them, I know that I am truly drawn to some stones even if they are not my colours. Some stones just make me feel so calm, whilst others give me an energy from nowhere. We really must not underestimate the properties and powers of the stones. I am sure they were telling me to use them when I started Lola Rose (although don't shout about that as some people will think I am mad) xx

 

Nikki Gewirtz Hi Sharon, there is so much new this week in the anniversary shows and quite a lot of event pricing which is even better news! We are previewing one of our new season scarves called snow leopard which I will try and photograph for you tomorrow and are continuing to preview the new seasons colours. So yes lots to look forward to x

 

sharon Harvey Fabulous! That is why i love them too! you are so right they do "speak" to us..... and thank you for the compliment, the pleasure is absolutely all ours xx

 

Anne-Marie Mason Nikki if you are mad then we all are too because we love the stones too. Thanks for doing this, I look forward to more 4mm soon, ha ha. x

 

Anne-Marie Mason Ooh, if that's the same snow leopard that's on your site I'm gonna be skint by the end of the week, ha ha. x

 

Sharon Harvey oooooooooh snow leopard!! x

 

Nikki Gewirtz Hi Jessica, Green Sandstone is not that easy to work with as sometimes I think can look very dark and not that sparkly but I am always on the look out for some really sparkly rough. As soon as I find it, it will be ours xx

 

Sharon Harvey Anything sparkly is always a winner!! x

 

sharon Harvey LADIES, PLEASE JOIN ME IN SAYING A HUGE THANK YOU TO Nikki Gewirtz for joining us this evening! Nikki, it has been an absolute pleasure to have you here! We are so looking forward to your shows this week and all of your stunning designs. Lots of love a...See More
