You know one of the most irritating things about me, for me, is that if someone tells me I can’t do something I want to. Even if I didn’t before. Therefore it’s vital for me to stick to my Till the Fat lady Slims/ Freedom Eating principles even when I’m embarking upon a new eating trial.

 

Take Jason Vale’s Juicemaster ‘5lb in 5 days’. I wanted to see what it was like and if I could actually do a plan using the juices I’d previously been really wanting after I got given the new TSV Retro Slow Juicer to play with. Yes, as soon as I knew I couldn’t have anything except the juices and smoothies, what did I do? Rebel. In my head. So I just slid comfortably back into Freedom Eating ways of thinking – ‘what does my body really feel like now? If I want it, I can have it.’ That did the trick. I swapped a couple of the juices for proper greens and tofu or soup, and nibbled a bit of salmon from the pies hour at work. Satisfied = sorted, in my head.

 

The mind is a funny thing, right? Now I know my ‘inner chimp’ can be dealt with (see previous blog about ‘The Chimp Paradox’ – a brilliant book by a British professor) that way – with food at least – it’s such a relief. And such a Freedom. Read more about Freedom Eating in my eBook/Paperback on amazon here.

 

And here are a few more posts from our Facebook group about how well others have been doing using TTFLS and Bodyblade and the like. I’m so glad we have such a good supportive community online.

 latest review on Amazon -

"Great book for fresh insight into my relationship with food. Treating it as the enemy didn't help or looking it as a brief pleasure to be paid for later wasn't any better. Makes life much easier now eating only when I'm hungry and enjoying what I eat and slowing down too. Working life I have had to eat by the clock (shifts) and then hurry and not really have time to enjoy so I am rethinking it and starting again. Read it for yourself and see"

 Also on TTFLS facebook group, Natalie Hollern was cock-a-hoop - she said 

"Lost 3 pounds this week.. feeling a bit happier and glad I am sticking with the smoothie and also following TTFLS book" then she posted this comment -

LAURA GELLER LIVE Q&A BACK TO YOU QVC 21 SEPTEMBER 2015

 

Sharon Harvay Congratulations on your Beauty Excellence Award for BnB Laura! You must have been thrilled! Xx

 

Debbie Flint Well deserved x

 

Dawn Robinson Hello Laura x I have to tell you i love love love your Baked Body Frosting !! I need to order another i recently finished mine....It looks so natural & so easy to apply. My girls love your produts too xoxoxo

 

Alana Hughes Hi Laura, love your make up especially your i-care eyeliners and baked eye shadows. Any new product launches coming up in the near future? x

 

Suzanne Trowell Can you bring some more eyeshadow colours not just browns and pink please. Loved the lilac and plum duo you did. Love your products Laura xx

 

Sylvia Jarvis Evening Laura!

Balance n Brighten is my desert island product. I tend to mix medium and tan for my best colour match. I was wondering if you were thinking of introducing a warm medium, as you have with the liquid foundation.

 

Andie Stephany Hi Laura from all at Get Geller Gorgeous xxxx

 

Denise Sanders Is there anything 'special' coming up for us before Christmas?

 

Denise Sanders What new items are going to be available for us GG's on QVC?

 

Julie Pratt Welcome Laura, any sneaky hints on the Xmas TSV? X

 

Laura Geller Thank you so much for welcoming me, Sharon! I can't thank you all enough for making Balance-n-Brighten the Beauty Excellence award winner for Best Foundation!

 

Andie Stephany Hi honey x

 

Debbie Flint welcome laura!!!

 

Eunice Burndred Laura you are beautiful xx

 

Sue Stewart Hi Laura and welcome to this fantastic group of ladies. I love your makeup especially your BnB. Will you ever put a sun protection in it?

 

Jeanette Bennett Yes I agree with Sue, a sun protector is a brilliant Idea.......

 

Suzanne Trowell I have a bnb with sunscreen in.

 

Sue Stewart I've not seen it Suzanne Trowell?

 

Suzanne Trowell It was one if the tsv about 18 months ago x

 

Sue Stewart Must have had it then but didn't realise. Laura is it in every BnB?

 

Andie Stephany There used to be a Balance n Brighten with SPF 20 but it's no longer available here.

 

Kathryn Stewart Woo HOO! Yes we need sunscreen also any chance if the wonderful honeycomb embossed highlighter that was in the Xmas TSV last year? X

 

Roisin McDonagh There is balance n brighten with SPF 15, but as far as I know it's not available in the UK anymore. I've never got it, unless I wasn't aware of it! From what I've heard the formulation is a little different. There is the SPF spackle which came in a tsv last summer, and some complexion products have SPF in them. Maybe if demand increases again she will bring the SPF BnB back xx

 

Debbie Flint Hi laura! Do tell everyone about your new place in New York, and what u get up to nowadays! (Goes live 8-9pm) x

 

Debbie Flint And an extra webchat with andrew gatineau on here Wed 23rd too just before new tsv on 26th! X

 

Laura Geller For Balance-n-Brighten SPF, there are parameters around making legal claims about SPF in powders here in the States. We are working hard to make more products with SPF for all your enjoyment! We recommend using an SPF with our Balance-n-Brighten always!

Sue Stewart Thank you Laura xx

 

Laura Geller Hi Suzanne Trowell! My new The Delectables Delicious Shades of Cool has amazing shades of pinks & plums that you will love! The palette. For your consideration, here is the item number 209631.

 

Andie Stephany Spackle with SPF under bnb ??

 

Laura Geller Hi Julie Pratt! I'm sure that everyone is so excited about the TSV coming in November! I cannot wait to get on air and present it smile emoticon Me and my team have been working so hard on something BRAND NEW surrounding Balance-n-Brighten but that is all I can say! November 21st is going to be a fun day for everyone!

 

Sharon Harvay yes!!!!!!!!!! cannot wait x

 

Sue Stewart Can you add an SPF to Spackle without problem like Andie mentioned. That would solve problems all round.

 

Debbie Flint what's the date?

 

Andie Stephany Sue there already is one!! Check my Spackle guide on the group

 

Andie Stephany 21 November

 

Sylvia Jarvis I'm sure that I read that spf in make up looks really white in photos (especially when the flash is used), so probably best to do the spf first and make up on top.

 

Sue Stewart I have Andie but I have so much Spackle of all sorts to use. If it was in all Spackle that would be great.

 

Laura Geller Debbie Flint The next TSV will be on November 21st!

Andie Stephany

Susan Jones Hi Laura. Will we be having the split highlighter in French Vanilla & Golden Rose.?Xx

Andie Stephany In sets

 

Alana Hughes Any new baked blush colours coming soon Laura? Thanks x

 

Roisin McDonagh Hi Laura. Will we be getting any new shades in the lasting love lip crayons? Aside from the auto delivery of the last tsv xx

 

Laura Geller During my November TSV, we have a few new launches coming up! Imagine something gorgeous the artisans have been working hard on smile emoticon A brand new formulated lipstick and a gorgeous palette with bronzer, highlighter, and blush -- it's stunning and you will all love it! I'm excited beyond belief that these products are coming your way!

 

Laura Geller Hi Sylvia Jarvis! Glad to know you're smart enough to mix your balance colors. Sometimes to get your perfect shade, you need to mix two different colors. At the moment, we're not planning on coming out with new Balance-n-Brighten shades but thank you for the feedback smile emoticon

 

Sue Stewart So am I Laura. Can't wait

 

Rebecca Warren Hi Laura Geller! Love your make up especially your blushers and highlighters hoping you can answer my questions, I am looking for a bright purple eyeliner do you have any coming to q? Also do you have any plans to get the solid colour bronzer (on q with slanted brush) in a set? Your B n B has made my work make up foolproof, thanks a million! Rebecca Warren

 

Sharon Harvay Yayayayayayayayayay Laura!!! You are spoiling us with surprises wink emoticon

 

Laura Geller Kathryn Stewart Hi Kathryn! My Baked Gelato Lace Illuminator in Ballerina is the same as the Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Ballerina -- it's just a different design, but the same lovely product!

 

Laura Geller Rebecca Warren At the moment, we have a few purple eyeliners available, but nothing too bright! The deep purples are very intoxicating and you'll love them smile emoticon

 

Isabel O'Hara Laura Geller is there a simple way to make your thinning top lip look more in in proportion to the bottom one without hard lip liners?

 

Laura Geller Rebecca Warren Which bronzer are you referring too? I just want to make sure I'm giving you the right answers smile emoticon I do have the Baked Impressions Bronzer in a set on Q right now; here is the item number: 203148

 

Sharon Harvay Laura, I am OBSESSED with your Tahitian Glow body Frosting! I have it in all sizes, use it all year round and get through tons of it! It makes a stunning eyeshadow and mixed with a clear balm, a beautiful lip colour! Do not ever stop making it! Hahaha

 

Laura Geller I moved this summer into a brand new flat and all I ever wanted was to have views of the beautiful New York City skyline and I searched for years until I found the perfect home for myself and Daniel! I even have a balcony smile emoticon

 

 

 

Debbie Flint a balcony? that high up? eeeek! looks amazing tho!

 

Isabel O'Hara New York an amazing city. I loved it when I visited. Your view is incredible!

 

Denise Sanders Laura - I like to use the make up pad with my b & b - but it is falling apart! Do you sell them separately?

 

Kam Mehta How stunning is that view?! You lucky girl and wishing you both lots of happiness in your new home. Xx

 

Laura Geller I'm pretty high up, I'm on the 41st floor! That's how you get to see the cityscape so well smile emoticon Let's just hope they don't have fire drill, girls -- and thank goodness I don't have a fear of heights!

 

Rebecca Warren Yes that's the one Laura Geller was hoping you would have a cheeky set available I got a Bronze n Brighten set last year from q and I discovered your gorgeous ocean eyeliner!

 

Sharon Harvay Stunning!!!!! Wow x

Suzanne Trowell I'd be on the floor. Can't even go above 4 floors. Beautiful skyline though. Hopefully one day I'll get to visit your beautiful city xx

 

Debbie Flint By the way I am absolutely adoring your Italian soufflé body creams at the moment hope there are more again in the future smile emoticon X

Sharon Harvay ooooooh Debs that smells beautiful xx

 

Laura Geller Isabel O'Hara My tip for fuller lips is simple: it's always good to use a little bit of light concealer or foundation around your lip line, and then stencil a light color lip liner around your lips. Another great little tip is to put a bit of light colored lip gloss to the center of your lip!

 

Isabel O'Hara Thanks Laura. I will try out these tips x

 

Laura Geller Debbie Flint You're holding my personal fave! You can't imagine the beautiful artistry that goes into making those souffles! I'm so glad you love them & I hope everyone gets to try them too smile emoticon Here's the item number in-case anyone wants to try! 207628

 

Laura Geller Sharon Harvay Just when I thought I knew all the uses for Tahitian Glow, you come up with some great tips for me & the gals! I love it & I don't ever plan to stop making it! heart emoticon

 

Jillian Widlake Just wanted to say I love balance an brighten and the slanted kabuki brush to apply and never used highlighter before or even knew about them but your honey lavender highlighter is amazing would love it in a supersize smile emoticon thank you again xx

 

Sharon Harvay Laura..... the amount i have bought over the years..... wink emoticon xx

 

Laura Geller I hope you've all been enjoying our beautiful Sarah! I know she has some shows coming up tomorrow, September 22nd at 11 PM & then Friday September 25th at 9 PM smile emoticon

 

Laura Geller Jillian Widlake Another great suggestion! Please know that while I don't have an answer for all your amazing product development ideas, I always take them back to my lovely Product Development team to see if they are possible heart emoticon

 

Isabel O'Hara Sarah is lovely and very talented. She does your brand proud. Always happy when your schedule allows you to appear too though!

 

Laura Geller Isabel O'Hara Thank you for those kind words and I always look forward to being there with my gals! heart emoticon

 

Alison Smith Just wanted you to know I love all your make up it's the best. I don't use any other brand now, Thankyou Laura for all your hard work and for all the beautiful goodies to bring to us. Looking forward to your next visit. Sending love to you and Daniel. Hope you will be happy in your new home. Xx

 

Melanie Hughes Hi Laura, I love BnB but I suffer from rosecea, do you have any tips on how to maximise the coverage from it? Also would you recommend using concealer before BnB, or after? Thanks xx

 

Laura Geller Alison Smith I'm so touched by your words, it means the world to me! Clearly you have outstanding taste wink emoticon hehe heart emoticon

 

Elizabeth McGovern Hi Laura smile emoticon I love your make up, my favourite being the sculpting bronzer. I was wondering if the baked brow tones is going to become available again as the brunette shade has been sold out for some time and its my favourite ever brow product?? Thanks smile emoticon

 

Sylvia Jarvis I agree Isabel O'Hara, I met Sarah at the Beauty Bash this January, and she did my make up. When I got home HOURS later, I took a photo for my facebook profile pic!!

Celia David Thanks for the add to this group. Just too late for Q&A's frown emoticon

Love LG though and will read through all the posts

 

Laura Geller Elizabeth McGovern We don't have an answer at the moment but my team will private message you when Brow Tones in Brunette is back in stock smile emoticon

 

Laura Geller Sylvia Jarvis So glad you got to capture a beautiful pic for your page! That was brilliant smile emoticon

 

Denise Sanders If our question didn't get answered - will they follow afterwards?

 

Debbie Flint i am looking forward to being on with Sarah tomorrow and i will definitely go stock up on the italian souffle body creams - cant run out now they are my new crush! lol x

Isabel O'Hara Date's in the diary!

 

Debbie Flint And this time next week it will be LOLA ROSE! with the wonderful Nikki Gewirtz ! x

Debbie Flint if anyone wants to keep updated in what's going on, do 'like' my facebook page on here and also do subscribe to my newsletter on my website, which often includes exclusives! x

 

Sylvia Jarvis I love the berry tone lip colours, rather than the nude neutrals. Would it be possible to give your fairer GG's paler colours, and brighter shades for us darker girls when you next put a TSV together?

Many thanks  xx

 

Debbie Flint Laura you've been amazing!

Back to you Extra Chat - WEd 23rd - Gatineau - Andrew Bagley


v

Anne-Marie Mason Hi, a request more than a question please Andrew. Please consider adding an oil to your range. I think you'd do a brilliant Age Benefit one. x

Andrew Bagley You're not wrong, totally agree and request already sent to France!!

Kelly Davidson He looks just like a Hollywood star, whenever I watch that is all I see!

Andrew Bagley Your flattery is unjustifed but very sweet smile emoticon

Sharon Harvay Hi Andrew, thank you for joining us here this evening! We are so looking forward to your upcoming TSV! Please could you tell us who this set is for?

Andrew Bagley Hi Sharon, yeh I'm so excited too. I love this one as we're the best at serums and you get the whole kit for less than the anti-ageing serum alone, then you get a choice of full-size moisturiser, a full-sze Throat Gel and a full-size Lip Care

Rebecca Warren Hello Andrew Bagley my question is about the best products to use after weight loss, I have sensitive combination skin 43 years old and need help supporting my skin (face and body) after almost three stone weight loss, particularly eye, neck and number 11 lines. Thanks in advance Rebecca Warren

Andrew Bagley Hi Rebecca, the range we advise for helping clients through weight-loss is always DefiLift, it's really great for firming and toning the jawline and helping to lift x

Rebecca Warren Thanks Andrew Bagley got the oto recently with at least 10 piece travel sizes of all the different ranges so will give defilift a whirl, using the melatonin at the moment, it's fine having a better size body but seeing my Mother God bless her when I look in the mirror is a bridge too far

Sharon Harvay Fantastic Question Rebecca! Congratulations on your weightlossxx

Mags Webb Hi Andrew please are you able to tell us the price of your TSV I do love your products, thank you xx

Andrew Bagley Hi Mags, it's £59.94 and is on 3-pay which is great, thanks QVC!

Mags Webb Sharon Thank you xxx

Mags Webb Rebecca Warren Thank you for asking that I could do with that kind of help too Ill follow whatever Andrew suggests. xx

Sandra Gregory Hi Andrew I use your Melatogenine products which I love, but my eyelids are quite wrinkley, I was wondering if the Defilift would be any good for me - I am coming up to 60 years old, thanking you in advance xxx

Andrew Bagley Yes sure Sandra Gregory as we age slackening and crepiness becomes more of an issue and this is where DefiLift comes into its own.

Alison J Lowe Hi Andrew, can the Gommage be used as a mask/treatment for open pores or can you recommend another product. I am going to try

Andrew Bagley The Anti-Ageing Gommage yes, it's awesome, leave it on for 20 mins and peel it off and it's superb for closing and cleaning open pores

Alison J Lowe Thanks Andrew, I will certainly try that.

Alison J Lowe Sorry, that meant to read another product I could try! Thanks

Maggie Buxey hi Andrew i use your melatogenine eye cream but is it enough as i have every problem thier is with my eyes so is there anything else thats better for me x

Andrew Bagley You might try DefiLift Eye for Day and Melato for night, then you get the absolute best of both worlds!

Dawn Buchanan Hi Andrew Bagley, which products would u recommend for oily skin, ta x

Dawn Robinson Hello Andrew, I just wated to say how much i love Defi Lift Lip Care ! I use it every single night, my question is i would love one with a hint of pink for in the day xxx

Andrew Bagley Dawn Robinson we're right with you, the request has been lodged with Paris for a while now so fingers crossed smile emoticon x

Dawn Robinson Ooowww brilliant thank you x

Dawn Robinson The neck cream is on my wish list ! It sounds wonderful x

Dawn Buchanan Hi Andrew Bagley, which products would u recommend for oily skin, ta x

Andie Stephany Andrew Bagley - I use the neck cream and love it. Please can we have larger bottles with pumps rather than tubes?

Andrew Bagley Dawn Robinson you won't regret it, the Throat Gel is insanely good and has been a cult product for years now

Sharon Harvay Oh i love the throat product! Especially now i am almost...41...ssshhhhh... it really is a hero product x

Sharon Harvay Debbie Flint we are here smile emoticon

Andie Stephany I meant the throat gel!!! Are you 41 twice Sharon?

Sharon Harvay Andrew Bagley - what other surprises do you have for us in the shows on Saturday?

Dawn Robinson I know it's one of Debbie Flints top produts , another one i keep looking at is the hand cream ! I will be making my Chritmas list tonight x

Sharon Harvay I feel it Andie hahahaha

Alison J Lowe I love the Age Benefit Serum, will this be ok with the Defilift moisturiser as I will be getting the TSV but never tried Defilift before

 

Andie Stephany Andrew reminds me a bit of Nigel Havers!

Andie Stephany A young one of course!!!

Michael James Hamlyn Great to see another web chat from you Andrew, I learnt so much from the last one.

Last time I was in love with lazer 7, but I'm thinking this has been discontinued?

Luckily I like the 30 day skin perfecter too... But just wondering what you may suggest when not using this? I have the slightest whisper of fine lines but my main concern is open pores/uneven skin tone and breakouts... My skin can be reactive/sensitive but it likes the previously mentioned products and the radiance enhancing gommage.

(Oh and currently using your combo skin cleanse/tone at night)

Aisha London I tried everything. Please do you have any advice for open pores.

Andrew Bagley Hi Andie Stephany I wish we could have larger bottles too, trust me, we're trying smile emoticon

Andie Stephany Thank you. A pump would be so much easier too

Debbie Flint Hi all! Have a great chat! Andrew remind newcomers what brought u to Gatineau in first place and how u felt when you first saw Ali Young bring Gatineau to QVC ? What was it like in the early days? X

Julie Pratt Hi Andrew super excited about the TSV! Can you please do a high level detail on the two moisturisers x

Sue Stewart Hi Andrew I met you at the Beauty Bash and I must say that you paid me some lovely compliments regards my skin. I'm using Deficit and my skin love's it and the other products I have. Thank you x

Andrew Bagley So for Saturday we have two big promotions running alongside the TSV; firstly a DefiLift Eye Duo and then an amazing ultimate Age Benefit collection

Debbie Flint Just to add to the conversation about the throat Gel, yes I have used it since the early days (that and liz earle line serum when I couldn't get throat gel in my years away from QVC. Makes it nearly 20 years I guess!) When will the 20th anniversary of throat gel Andrews on QVC?

Debbie Flint By the way, am on air tonight 11pm liz claibourne fashions and midnight with tsv xmas lights! Do join me, all! X

Andrew Bagley I do love our Hand Cream, has to be said, look out for it in the massive 400ml size!

Maggie Buxey I love the throat gel I also have been using it for a long time and I can honestly say for my age it looks a lot better condition than some of my friends about the same age x

Sue Stewart I'm also using the DefiLift lip care but I'm finding my lipstick 'slips'a little. Any suggestions for best application?

Sharon Harvay I have never tried the Hand cream so thats on my list now you have said that Andrew, Thank you. However promise me you will NEVER EVER stop making your Tan Accelerator....omg its been my staple for years im addicted to it....x

Sara Brown Andrew, which should I use first age benefit serum or wrinkle corrector in my routine? I've been using Gatineau since the TSV last November. Totally addicted and recently had skin analysed and over ten years younger than my age. It's no longer feeling parched and no wrinkles in sight.

 

I use the age Benefit serum on alternate months.

Sara Brown's photo.

Jill Dowding-Walker I love the throat gel. With 3D neck cream over it! Double effect!

Like · Reply · 1 · 1 hr

Sandra Gregory I agree with you Sharon, Tan Accelerator is fab I ran so much more now and it lasts longer too x

Sue Stewart Third that Sharon and Sandra.

Andrew Bagley Loving the Nigel Havers comment, I think smile emoticon My mother will laugh her socks off smile emoticon

Andrew Bagley Jill Dowding-Walker you have the perfect neck routine, Throat Gel + DefiLift Throat Moisturiser, well done to you!

Sharon Harvay Jill does have THE most amzing skin x

Sue Stewart There was a fb post that asked the best thing about Gatinea. My answer was Andrew Bagley. Hope you don't mind. But you explain things so well x

Andrew Bagley Sara Brown love the testing, you must be happy! But yes you're right use the Anti-wrinkle Corrector first then serum on top, great routine, well done

Andrew Bagley Sharon Harvay we're never giving up on Tan Accelerator, fret not, i don't go anywhere without it and all the girls in the office are absolutely hooked!

Andrew Bagley Sue Stewart, try putting your lipstick on first, waiting a few minutes then pop DefiLift Lip Care on top, not my morning routine naturally but my Gatineau girls tell me it's a winner. Don't forget to use at evening also as a lip mask

Sue Stewart Thanks Andrew I've been using it the wrong way round!

Sharon Harvay Phew......everything is ok in my world smile emoticon its amazing!! I have sun sensitive skin now due to medication and have to wear a really high factor. This protects my skin and still gives me the most amazing Tan, i also use it on my Children to protect against prickly heat. It makes their skin feel beautiful. Thank you

Andrew Bagley Loving your questions toniight ladies, keep them coming, 13 minutes to go

Sara Brown Finally from me could we have an exfoliation TSV with Radiance Enhancing Gommage. Ps I'm not an addict even if the picture says otherwise.

Sara Brown's photo.

Julie Pratt Hi Andrew can you advise on the two moisturisers in the TSV?

Jill Dowding-Walker Hahaha Sara!

 

Sue Stewart Exfoliating products. Where have I been? Will there be any on over the weekend

Dawn Robinson Lol Sara

Andrew Bagley Sara Brown I am loving that picture, that's more Beauty Passports than I have in my office right now smile emoticon Great to see you're using it though, it's the most amazing loyalty systems out there heh. 4 whole points on the next TSV, how's about that!!

Jan Thompson Andrew what would you suggest to be the best eye cream for me, I'm a contact lens wearer and think years of stretching my eyes to insert them have taken it's toll, I do have oily skin but my eyes are quite lined underneath the eye socket at the top of my cheeks, thank you

Sharon Harvay Sue...i use it all the time, its such a beautiful lip product. Its great on top of lipstick. Ive even applied it with a lipbrush, as a gloss on top of a Matt Lipstick...oooppps smile emoticon

Sandra Taylor Has the fragrance is the cleanser changed. Recent one I opened has a smell of marzipan ?I don't like it

Andrew Bagley Now Sharon Harvay you seem as addicted as Michaela Taylor!

Andrew Bagley Hi Sandra Taylor, that sounds strange as no, no fragrances have changed; what cleasing skin type product was it please?

Jill Dowding-Walker Would love a whole set of 3D DefiLift. I know you told me not likely as that would not appeal to enough customers. Any chance that viewpoint might change? (Fingers still crossed!)

Sandra Taylor I just thought I normally get the pink toner but this time I got orange toner is the cleanser different ?

Andrew Bagley Hi Sandra, maybe take a pic of that one and send on to me personally and we'll have a look at it

Sandra Taylor Thanks Andrew

Andrew Bagley Hi Jan Thompson i'd definitely go for Melatogenine Eye, it's amazing for wrinkles full stop and also has an enzymatic exfoliating action; no sensation but massive brightening effect. It's Alison Young's go-to Eye Cream and she's not on her own. Good luck and do let me know

Jan Thompson Thanks Andrew Bagley, I really appreciate your advice x

Andrew Bagley To be honest Jill Dowding-Walker there a few DefiLift only kits on the internet with QVC that you should be able to find with a quick search. Alternatively, this TSV on Saturday is amazing from a DefiLift perspective as it's got a FS DefiLift Cream, a DefiLift Lip, the Throat Gel (best lifting ever) and then there is the DefiLift Eye Duo available as well. Enjoy!!

Andrew Bagley Any more for any more guys and girls???

Sharon Harvay It really is the most wonderful TSV and the value and the Easy pay make this a no brainer!! I think it is superb and would make the most amazing Christmas present too! Thank you Andrew and Gatineau for bringing us such a fantastic Range from such an amaazing brand x

Andrew Bagley So, time to put my face mask on smile emoticon, thanks so much for all your questions, it's been loads of fun and I look forward to speaking with some of you on air during Saturday x

Bruce Hymanson – webchat Monday 21st September 2015 – Bodyblade QVC Facebook gp

1 hr

Hello Bodyblade Ohana!!Good evening to all. I hope you are all focused on enjoying life. How do we measure "enjoying life". Perhaps, it's about pain relief or realizing that you can now look forward to doing something you thought was out of reach or simply impossible. Perhaps, the ability to make new friends or get together with family more often. The notion that where ever you are today (and we all experience this) what are some goals we'd like to achieve? It's important to set our long term goals and our short term goals as well. The short term goals is what gets the results and puts us on the path to achieving the long term goal. The great thing about this is there are wonder things to enjoy along the way even without fully achieving the long term goal. It's so important to not lose sight of the great things that happen along the way. So, tonight, let's talk about perma-habits, short term goals, how to set them and how to succeed!! See you in just about 30 minutes

Bruce Hymanson Maureen-Guillian Barre syndrome as you know can be a very debilitating yet often a disease that patients can recover from. The severity of the attach can vary from simply tingling sensation in the extremities to paralysis of the extremities. Since I do not know your husband's case and history, it would be impossible to prescribe a treatment regimen so I suggest you take the Bodyblade to your MD or PT and let them advise you. Having said that. GBS is a neurological disease and over the years, I have treated patients using Bodyblade. As a PT, it is important to maintain flexibility and bring blood to the extremities of the patient. I also believe that stimulating the nervous system, brain to muscle and the receptors involved with balance, awareness of joint position are extremely important. Fatigue is also a factor. Bodyblade can easily adapt to the challenges your husband may experience. For those reasons, I believe the blade can help. Please, please, take it to your MD and let them have the final say

Sue Jennings I decided 3 months ago after years of yo yo dieting that it had to stop and I had to get my act together once and for all... I joined SW and I am pleased to say it is working for me with a 23 lbs so far ..I then needed a form of excercise to work along side it and after watching Bruce and Debbie a couple of weeks ago I invested in my Bodyblade ...it's the best thing I've bought ever !! These 2 life changing moves are now my perma-habits and I hope by Christmas to be a new woman ..... Thanks to Bruce once again for his inspiration x

Bruce Hymanson Maureen, keep me posted on your husbands progress. I know that GB patients can make incredible gains if the recovery potential is there. If the ability to recover and rehab is there, it is important to take every opportunity to re-train the body. I would love to see that happen for your husband.

Bruce Hymanson Maureen-sorry to hear you broke your arm. Once the Doctor feels you can begin exercise on that extremity, Bodyblade can be a brilliant way to activate the entire shoulder girdle (including the back muscles and chest muscles attached to the shoulder). This will also help restore your flexibility. By now, I would assume the bone is healed (verify with MD). Are you seeing a Physio? if so, take the blade to them and get their advice. I would say, do only "wide side" exercises to start. For those who don't know what I mean when I say wide side or narrow side exercise. The position of the blade during the exercise determines whether it is wide or narrow side. For example, the Chest Press, is a wide side exercise. The Ab Crunch is a narrow side exercise. The narrow side exercises are more challenging to the body and therefore easier to start with wide side in rehab. Hope this helps.

Bruce Hymanson Sharon- When you say bottom, I assume you mean the bum not down by the side. So, do the Super6 workout and cover the entire body. The Hip & Thigh Sculptor is the most effective bottom exercise I know!!! It's challenging but the rewards are fab.

Bruce Hymanson Hi Kerry- Sounds like you are doing well. the 6th exercise is always the toughest for most to master. It requires quick movement rather that big muscle. There are several posts about how to master that exercise. On the pinned post I believe you can watch my video with Giselle who was a first time user. As for back ache. I don't know if that is simply muscle and normal fatigue? Does it last awhile. I don't think you should find yourself in pain after exercise. If necessary, check with your MD or Physio

Bruce Hymanson Sharon- this is the jab. Holding the blade out to the side (wide side exercise) and driving the blade. You can allow this to be down by the side too. Triy to move it around to the front of your body too. Remember, light grip, find the rhythm of the blade and simply react. don't try to set the pace of the blade but speeding up or slowing down. There is only one rhythm. The blade determines that. you can only match that rhythm.

But using the bodyblade is amazing the results are fantastic. I've lost 3 stone now and using the bodyblade to tone up is brilliant. Thank you Bruce for inventing this. Your a star.

Unlike · Reply · 2 · 6 mins

Bruce Hymanson In the final minute or two. I want to reinforce what's important here. Make exercise a habit. Make the Super 6 or any workout something you do on a regular basis like brushing your teeth. You would never go to sleep without taking care of your teeth and brushing every night. This is a habit. This is something you do regularly because you know it is important for your health, your hygiene and future. Bodyblade is a habit and when you do the habit more, it is harder to let it go. That's what a habit is. We have good and bad habits but once they are established, they are hard to break. Make Bodyblade a good habit, a perma-habit that will effect your life in wonderful ways.

Like · Reply · 7 · 3 mins

Bruce Hymanson Anne- to answer your question about weight watchers points, I don't know exactly how that would apply. Bodyblade training is like walking a brisk mile or a light jog in terms of calories burned in a workout. Does that help?

Published in Back to You

Hi once again! What an amazing week for Back to You – with over a hundred and fifty brand new members! Welcome if you’re one of them! (link to Facebook group is below, do join if not*)

Have just got back from a practically sell out show with Tarte Cosmetics and it reminded me to say that making yourself look nice is one of the best ways to lift your spirits, if you find you feel better when the mirror looks less like your mother. Actually, if you’re me and you put makeup on and look better, you end up looking MORE like your mother, since mine looks so damn young! But that’s another story… Tons of goodies still online if you want to revamp your makeup bag without costing the earth. Ditto with skincare – and Judith Williams’s new Today’s special Value, from the FutureSkin range with two new products, is about to happen. (Tuesday night at midnight, 2nd June.) Or even just changing your health routine to be a bit more focussed can be the lift you need.

I was chatting to one of our lovely models tonight, whom I will call Grace, a slightly older lady who was concerned about her current lifestyle choices, and we found ourselves saying this –

If you need a lift in your current lifestyle routine, make these choices instead – for just TWO WEEKS –

-       Cut right back on sugar, gradually – a tiny bit less each day (like a quarter teaspoon of sugar less each cup of tea or coffee) till it’s practically gone from your diet – for TWO WEEKS

-       Give your body a break from the things you KNOW it finds hard to deal with – for Grace it’s eggs, for me (I  love eggs!) it’s dairy, but I also don’t really eat meat, or wheat as first choice for my body – for TWO WEEKs

-       Do a specific exercise, even for ONE MINUTE every day – eg exercise number 6 from the Super6 on Bodyblade – for TWO WEEKs

-       Drink hottish (not boiling) water with a squeeze of lemon (a squeeze – not so it takes the surface off your teeth!) every day instead of your breakfast cuppa – FOR TWO WEEKS

-       And practise forgiveness – instead of mulling over things you can’t change – because if you can’t change it, there’s no point worrying over it, and if you CAN change it, just do it – there’s no point worrying over it! This way you can start getting your head sorted out too.

-       So are you up for the TWO WEEK lifestyle kick?

-       If you want to go the whole hog, do it alongside Freedom Eating (see links to my TTFLS book below) – giving you a better outline of what to do around food, and act llike a slim person – FOR TWO WEEKS

-       Finally be prepared to go public – tell someone you’re doing it – if that tactic makes you more likely to stick to it. If not, keep schtum and do it just for you – FOR TWO WEEKS!

Let me know how you get on!

On my Till the Fat Lady Slims group, (TTFLS) many are taking the second THREE MONTH CHALLENGE and already seeing good results again. But remember that ups and downs are part of the progress. Realising that they are normal and not to be panicked over is the first step.

And just look at this – made me well proud! -

Great Results.

Here are some more fab comments that have gone up on the groups I run this week – what’s yours? Do tell us on one of them! (links are below)

And this from QVC UK item 704285 - “" I have lost three and a half stone with slimming world and one thing I've found is the necessity to keep reviewing what I'm doing as my weight loss continues, otherwise complacency creeps in and my weight creeps up! This book has made me think carefully about when and how much I eat and I noticed that I eat at mealtimes whether hungry or not, and I finish my plate even if I was satisfied much earlier. So I tweaked these things this week and lost three pounds. I was also really interested in what the book says about the effects of sugar...I was really impressed by Debbie's detailed references for further reading. Her book has encouraged me to think of my weight loss as a project and be less passive and more proactive about understanding what's going on in the process. Sorry, I'm going on and on, but I was surprised by how much I got from this.”

How lovely – it’s reviews like this that make my hard work maintaining the groups and devoting so much time replying and posting, worthwhile. Thank you so much for such a lovely review.

NB hardback is still available on QVC item 704285. £10 incl p&p x

 

Webchats – this week Bruce talked about the Bodyblade... Also on Back to You QVC group, Sara Hollamby for Judith Williams skincare – launching the Futureskin TSV tonight/tomorrow (2nd/3rd)! And the lovely Marie-Francoise from Kipling gives an insight into the upcoming new TSV bag (7th). Their Q&A are at the bottom of this blog if you missed them. We also had a surprise visit from the fabulous Leigh from Tarte cosmetics during my time with her at QVC, in between the two shows I did. The replies were quite spread out so we’ve invited her back in time for her next shows in August. In the next few weeks it’ll be as follows –

June 8th – Abi Cleeve / Ultrasun PLUS top natural body care beauty range A’kin.

… to come – Marv our African Caribbean presenter on QVC talking about her fab new video for darker skins, Ali K, who gets married end of June!, and even – somehow – Alison Young…

PLUS - July 6th – Tom Ogden & Michelle / Alpha H

More Back to You next week – and remember to check in on the TTFLs page for more tips of the day to keep you going! (link below).

Other news –

-          Smoking ban in all public places in Beijing – again! – One of the worst things about Beijing, I found out in my QVC related trip in April, was the smog. Added to by people smoking – even still in some restaurants. There’s nothing more vile, in my opinion, especially in a city where most days you can’t see the sun. About time – but why did it fail the first time? More here

Sarah Hollamby for Judith Williams (TSV futureskin launching 3rd)

LIVE BACK TO YOU WEB CHAT SARA HOLLAMBY – JUDITH WILLIAMS

Welcome to Back To You QVC Sara! We are so pleased to have you here ahead of an amazing Judith Williams TSV XX

Sue Stewart Hi Sara it's so lovely to have you back again. I hope you are keeping well. I'm so looking forward to the TSV this week. Finished the moisturiser and the eye cream. Have a little serum left. Love this range perfect for the summer months. Can't wait to see the new product. What other goodies are you bringing x

 

Sarah Ness Hi Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams I am a huge fan of Judith Williams products and I have been using them for Four years now, its really changed my skin, so a huge thank you! Also I would like to ask you, will there be any new Judith Williams skin care ranges coming to qvc? I would love to try the vitamin C range, will that be coming to Qvc this year? Many thanks. X

 

Denise Skerman Hi Sara I'm fairly new to Judith Williams range, I have seen noticeable changes to my skin since I've been using the Phytomineral all in one day and night cream & intensive eye cream. I'm thinking of getting the TSV but is it anti ageing and beneficial for over 60's please. X

 

Lorri Vick Hi Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams - welcome. I get a little confused at the different ranges within JW - I would like to target wrinkles, lines and some slackness and would like to know if the tsv would be good for this please - I have to admit that I am still a little sceptical about the ranges versus the premium brands on Q and get a little nervous changing - I am sure this is due to the lower price of Judiths ranges and I do understand the reason why they are cheaper - but somehow I find it difficult to switch . I did use the Phytomineral regeneration and loved it . I do need skincare that provides hydration as my skin is dry and can look dehydrated. I do use rose oil smile emoticon xx

 

Dawn Robinson Hello Sara im so looking forward to Wednesday ! it's so exciting  my hubby was saying today "" ive got an obsession"" however i would call it a passion for great skincare !! it will be great to see you on QVC too xoxoxo

 

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hello Everyone, thanks so much for joining me tonight! I’m really thrilled about the TSV on Wednesday, I’ll be at QVC and will bring it to you on the 9am show, Judith will be with you for all the others….First let me clarify the different ranges….. The Phytomineral (Purple packaging) is for all skin types. This is for anyone who is happy with their skin as it is, and wants to use serious skin care to maintain the healthy look, and prevent lines and wrinkles for as long as possible. The Life Long Beauty Range (Pink) is anti-aging, for all skin types – although it might be too rich for oily skin, apart from the Rose Oil), and is all about lifting and firming with a rich, creamy, luxurious consistency. Beauty Institute is Judith’s professional range, anti-aging for all skin types and used in her Treatment Salon in Munich. Everything is luxurious, potent and a little more expensive.Future Skins (Dark Turquoise) is anti-aging, using state of the art technology, so a very modern range. It is suitable for all skin types due to the lightweight texture across the range. This is particularly effective for significantly reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hope this helps!!!!!

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hi Sarah Ness, I’m so glad you love Judith’s products too, I can’t believe the results and such good value. Like you, it’s changed my skin too, I’m getting so many compliments!!! (Not complaining about that!) I believe there will be a Vitamin C range coming, but I really don’t know too much about it at the moment. In the meantime, do try the Future Skins….IT IS DIVINE! I thoroughly recommend it if you want something anti-aging, light, modern and visibly…significantly…reduces lines and wrinkles!

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hi Denise Skerman welcome to the webchat! So nice to hear from you. PM is a lovely range, so glad you’ve enjoyed using it. I would definitely recommend the Future Skins as a step up on your anti-aging skincare. Even though its very lightweight it really packs a punch and you’ll see a visible difference in your lines and wrinkles within a week. Its also very moisturizing and full of anti-oxidents soooo good for your skin!

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hello Lorri Vick thanks for joining me tonight. I understand…it’s so difficult to choose when there are so many lovely brands available. All I can say is that I’m very fussy with my skincare, always have been, and since I’ve been working with Judith I am more and more impressed with her ranges, and how my skin looks having used it for over a year. Her ingredients are always rated ‘best’, and she uses top cosmetologists and scientists in Italy (from the University of Ferrar) for her research and development of new products. She can only keep her prices down because of the huge quantity she sells primarily in Germany, also Switzerland and Austria, as well as the UK. As you know, she doesn’t advertise, use celebrity endorsements, or have expensive retail outlets….hence the brilliant value. You really should try Future Skins if you want something rather special - it gives outstanding results! My laughter lines hardly show, my jowls have tightened up, my skin is brighter, softer, smooth and hydrated. I also love the Rose Oil, and will use it over the top of everything at night, especially if I’ve been in air con all day….

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hi Dawn Robinson glad you've joined me tonight....if you're going to have any obsession surely beautiful skin is the best one to have!!! Look as young as you can for as long as you can is my motto. I'm so glad you like JW - I love them. You'll love the Future Skins...it means your skin looks so fresh and youthful you won't need to pile on the make up this summer. xxx

Chris Calvert Hi Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams i have tried the phytomineral hydrating mask and absolutely adore the texture, will this be featured more on QVC UK soon? Also is there any plans to bring some more male fragrances also is there any plans to make a matching body wash to the Man fragrance at all?

Chris Calvert i would also be interested to try the vitamin ampules to see how they compare with the likes of the skin bliss capsules will they be coming to qvc Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hi Chris Calvert so nice to have a man joining us. The TSV Future Skin range is great for men also, as its very lightweight and smells beautifully fresh. Only thing is you don't look old enough....do you have wrinkles? You'll love the cleansing crea...See More

Sharon Harvay The future skin range is amazing, and i absolutely love it. I really would recommend that people concern with fine lines and wrinkles, and wanting that gorgeous lightweight, anti-ageing feel, give it a go

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Not sure if our ampoules are returning atm.

 

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Thanks Sharon, so glad you like it, I absolutely love it....hooked!

 

Debbie Green Hi Sara would the tsv be suitable for me I am 48 with slackening nose to mouth lines and jaw but still suffer with oily congested skin with own pores please help as I have tried some of the range but not sure which would be best, thanks

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hi Sue Stewart I saw a question of yours earlier this evening...You’ll like the new Future Skins products in the TSV, the most fabulous Night Cell Shot, and Decollete Fluid Concentrate, both very lightweight and sinks straight into your skin leaving it soft and smooth. My neck has never looked so good…seriously!!! Atm the Future Skins range is my absolute favourite, perfect for summer and getting your skin looking lovely so you don’t have to plaster on the foundation.

 

Chris Calvert Sounds fab Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams i do like a very fresh feeling cleanser on my skin, luv the tip about applying it as a mask before rinsing off too. Yeah i do have the odd line here and there creeping in so i always like to make sure i am topped up with many layers of skin care

Lorri Vick Thank you Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams - is the future skin range hydrating too smile emoticon xx

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hi Lorri Vick it certainly is. There's a plant stem cell in it that strengthens your skin's natural barrier to prevent moisture loss. Plus there's avocado oil, aloe vera, glycerin and hyaluronic acid, all to moisturise and hydrate. I'm sure you'll love it.

 

Lorri Vick I am definitely going to try it

 

Sharon Harvay Sara, do you have a competition running on your page currently to win a tsv? x

 

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hi Debbie Green thanks for joining. Yes it would certainly be suitable for you as it will firm up you nose to jaw line as there's a different plant stem cell to improve the elasticity in your skin, as well as another one to support your collagen, giving you the bounce and density back. It will also smooth your skin and refine your open pores. As an addition, the Rose Oil is also really good for clearing congested pores and refining them. Hope that helps. x

Dawn Robinson Ooowww Sara do you think we will ever get a JW shampoo & conditioner ? X

 

Kathryn Stewart Thank you Sarah for clarifying all of the range. I didn't get on with the pink as I found it too sweet smelling perhaps the turquoise is more for me x

 

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hi Sharon, yes I have my own competition running in this hour only, you can visit my webpage Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams share the TSV photo and join us here with some chat, for a chance to win. I'll announce the winner at 9pm.

 

Lynn Parry Hi Sara I am looking at something to specifically target the décolleté which cream would you recommend it's not dry as such but starting to show signs of ageing x

 

Dawn Robinson Fingers crossed for the competition everyone  xx

 

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Don't worry Kathryn Stewart I'll answer to anything!!! Yes, the smell is very different, its a fabulous smell, hard to describe, but fresh and light and certainly not sweet. Everyone I know loves the smell before they've even tried it.

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hi Lynn Parry. Definitely definitely definitely the TSV. There's the NEW décolleté fluid concentrate which is a very light lotion with a brush so you can paint it on your neck and decollate and you will just see the necklace lines and vertical décolleté lines just melt away. My neck hasn't looked this good for years!

Lorri Vick Cant wait to try 1 hr • Like • 1

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hi Dawn Robinson Unfortunately its unlikely although JW does them (in Germany), QVC don't want it here as they have many other ranges. Shame isn't it. x

 

Sarah Ness Thank you Sara for answering my question. X

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hi Sarah Ness I saw one of your questions earlier....I’m so glad you love Judith’s products too, I can’t believe the results and such good value. Like you, it’s changed my skin too, I’m getting so many compliments!!! (Not complaining about that!) I believe there will be a Vitamin C range coming, but I really don’t know too much about it at the moment. In the meantime, do try the Future Skins….IT IS DIVINE! I thoroughly recommend it if you want something anti-aging, light, modern and visibly…significantly…reduces lines and wrinkles!

Sharon Harvay Sara, i love to dip into the various ranges that Judith does depending on time of the year, month and what my skin needs at the time. I find her complete range very prescriptive, i think for that its fantastic and that i why i recommend it to everyone x

 

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Who got freezing cold today? I had to put my heating back on!!!

 

Sharon Harvay me!!!!!

 

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams I'm so glad you like it Sharon. And yes its good to ring the changes, you can usually tell when your skin wants a change of scenery. Well we all like a holiday, don't we?

 

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams My trouble is, the results from the Future Skins is so good, I don't want to stop using it.....

 

Sarah Ness Yes me too, I thought I was the only one who had the heating on! He he! X

 

Dawn Robinson I have about 3mls left of my Rose Oil it's making me feel anxious Hahahaha  xx

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hi Sarah Ness did I answer your question OK?

Sharon Harvay i know!! I am back on it these past few month as i went a bit richier in deepest winter, however i continued with my Cell booster from Future skin as im slightly obsessed with it x

Sarah Ness Yes perfectly. Thank you so much Sara. X

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Yes if you want a fresh lightweight range this is perfect. It really packs a punch though, I noticed a huge difference within 3 days. I was on holiday at the time trying it out, and I thought there must be something in the water. The difference was very noticeable. Its just perfect for this time of year, when you don't want anything too rich and heavy.

Debbie Green Thanks Sara this helps a lot, do you know how much it will be and will it be on easy pay

 

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hi Dawn Robinson don't worry, we've got some Rose Oil coming up on Wednesday....hahaha don't want you to be without it!

 

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hi Debbie Green it won't be on easy pay, BUT its only £39.90 for all 4 full size (50ml and 15ml for the eye cream), that the Night Cell Shot, Eye Cream, 24hr cream, and the Decollete Fluid Concentrate....that makes it less than £10 per item. The whole lot is worth £105, so its such a brilliant price.

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Anyone going anywhere nice on holiday? I want to think sunshine and warm weather.....?????

Sharon Harvay Dont forget to look online ladies as products are available when not on air x

Sharon Harvay and gents, sorry xx

 

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Yes its nice to have men looking after their skin and taking an interest isn't it. After all, we have to look at them!!!

 

Debbie Flint Hey sara! I'm Looking forward to launching the new JW TSV ! X

 

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Has anyone tried the Cell Booster?

 

Kathryn Stewart Debbie gets ALL the good jobs! Helps being the resident night owl!

 

Debbie Green Thanks and yes really good value as is all JW products.

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hi Debbie Flint yes I think it'll be good. Judith will be here to launch at midnight, although I'll be there too. I'm on for the 9am. Really looking forward!

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hahaha yes Kathryn Stewart she does, but she is great to work with, one of my favourite presenters. I've known Debbie for years....

 

i love cell booster as i mentioned above Sara, i ALWAYS use it, it just cleans my skin, lmost polishing it and resurfacing it hahaha healthy glow and just gives a fantastic boost!! i swear by it all year round! i think Sue Stewart loves it too x

Kathryn Stewart May just be tempted to try....third time lucky! I am a sucker for a beauty bargain and you are all raving.....could start a shop with my beauty products. Will look with interest. Kxx

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams The Cell Booster has the highest concentration of the plant stem cells, plus the Neuro-peptide complex called Neuro Botomix 5, plus hyaluronic that you can get. No wonder your wrinkles are hard to see after using it.

Anne Keating Sorry to be a latecomer at the Judith Williams Ball - I've been on the Bodyblade and Kipling webchats! Just wanted to say that I've been using the JW products for the last few months and I must remember to look to see if Sharon has posted the information on the different ranges on the Back to Beauty page. Definitely my must have products from now on! xx

Sharon Harvay yep! Wrinkle free please x

Sue Stewart I do Sharon Harvay. My pot is empty. I've had to go back to my Life Long Beauty Range for now. I love the Future Skin range. All of it and I'm looking forward to trying the latest addition to the range x

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hi Lynn Parry If you haven't tried any JW before, Wednesday's TSV might be the time to go for it. Its great value, but you'll love the results you get.

 

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hahaha Sharon, I can't promise miracles, you might not be wrinkle FREE, but hugely improved, more than anything else I've tried.

 

Sue Foley enjoyed using the future range last year when it was launched, great to have a tsv smile emoticon

Sharon Harvay deffo sue especially with new items x

 

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams I saw earlier Sharon that Jacqueline Jackson was talking about body exfoliation... - yes probably once a week. A body brush is good, also using a flannel in the bath and shower helps, but for extra smoothness and softness, you could try our LLB Rose Butter Decollete Peel. This has very fine beads to slough away dead skin, and is very gentleyou’re your décolleté. You can also use on your body and even on your face (although I recommend you ‘press it’ gently onto your face, not rub), smooth it over your skin then rinse off in the bath or shower. Follow with the Rose Body Butter, you’ll smell divine and your skin with be as smooth as silk. For cellulite have you tried our Beauty Institute Superfirm Serum. I haven’t used it, but I’ve heard nothing but brilliant things about it, and its what Judith uses in her treatment salon in Munich.

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hi Sue Foley thanks for joining us. Glad you liked it last year, its had so many fabulous reviews..... I think you'll love the TSV on Wednesday, 2 new products.....the Night Cell Shot and the Decollete Fluid Concentrate plus the Eye Cream and the 24hr Cream. Such a fabulous set for £39.90. Crazy price.

 

Sue Stewart I'm taking mine to Lake Garda with me Sara. All of it.

 

Sarah Ness It Would be lovely to have a Judith Williams beauty salon in the UK! X

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Hi Sue Stewart the TSV is just in time then.....phew!

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams Oooh Lake Garda how lovely, its perfect for the Italian sunshine. Thats where I tried mine last year, never looked back! Have a wonderful time. x

Sue Foley sounds great sara,such a brilliant range

Jacqueline Jackson Thank you Sarah really need to get into a good body routine x

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams You know Sarah Ness it would be good, if ever you're in Munich you must have a look, its just off the 'Bond St' of Munich called Maximillan St, very posh, and really nice.

Sue Stewart Thanks. Everyone says my skin is good and it's all due to Judith's products. Thanks you to both of you. I'm excited for Wednesday xx

Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams You know ladies, I've so enjoyed chatting with you all tonight thank you all for taking the time to join me.....

Anne Keating Hi Marie-Françoise - I've just popped over from the Bodyblade group webchat with Bruce Hymanson. I've quite a few Kipling bags and I especially love my back pack - it's really useful for days out as it folds down to nothing when it's empty. I didn't know Kipling did baby bags though. I like that idea - a great solution for presents and I'd love to see them on QVC. xx.

Claire Louise I like the zip top with zip compartment at the back x x

I'm also doing some bellyblasting and some of the advanced techniques for belly blasting. Thanks so much for you time and continued support smile emoticon

Bruce Hymanson Hi Beckie, All of the Bodyblade workouts we do will help tone and firm your arms and the area around your shoulder and armpits. You can also add the Jab exercise as well to your workouts because it is a very versatile exercise for the entire upper body. the key is consistency and working on increasing your time and intensity.

Bruce Hymanson I read through a few posts yesterday regarding the training days and what exercises to do in sequence so let me review for everyone. The Super 6 workout should be done in order because it is designed to add flexibility to your upper body at the same time. The exercises are 1) Chest Press, 2) Back & Shoulder Reach, 3) Ab Crunch, 4) Tricep Push, 5) Bicep Tricep Trimmer and 6) Hip & Thigh Sculptor. Will it hurt you if you do them out of order? No, but there is a method to my madness for the order. Let me know if you have additional questions about that.

1 June at 21:14 · Like · 8

 

Bruce Hymanson The other question that pops up frequently is "How often do I workout". My recommendation is to train 3-4 times a week. If you are doing the Super 6 or any of our workouts and you are doing your best to increase your time and flex intensity (in other words, training hard and doing your best, not just picking it up and driving for 5-10 seconds at a time). This will give you a day of rest in between.

Anne Keating Hi Bruce I hope you are well. Something that's cropped up today - we seem to be getting confused over the names of the Supersix. 1. Chest press. 2. Overhead shoulder reach. 3. Ab crunch. 4. Bicep tricep trimmer. 5. Ab curl. 6. Hip and Thigh Sculpture. Could you check if these are the correct names for the LA and HCC workouts please. I have a feeling that the DVD does them in a different order and we were really getting confused earlier on. The other matter is - the gang are doing an anti-rain BB dance today as Sarah Hills and I are going to a Garden Party at the other Palace (Buckingham!) tomorrow and we don't want the rain to spoil our posh frocks and hats! I've been asked to take photos and try and smuggle my Bodyblade in but neither are allowed I'm afraid. . We've had a good week with lots of virtual workouts and Zoe Robins asked us to join her at 10.30 this morning and quite a few of us did. We're still waiting for Marverine Cole to do her promised Bodyblade Challenge 2015 video! oh no, ignore the first point - you've just answered it! Thanks. xx

Bruce Hymanson If you are interested in training more frequently then 3-4 times a week, that is OK too as long as the off days are not for heavy training but rather to simply practice or pick it up and put it down throughout the day. Please let me know if this is confusing

Wendy Lawrence Just one other thing Bruce if I may, is it ok to do more than one 6 min workout on each of the 3-4 Bodyblade session days if we feel able or is that pushing too far? That I'm afraid sounds confusing

Bruce Hymanson Hi Wendy. Yes, you can do more than a six minute workout on the days that you train. For example, if you are stronger and have more endurance to do more than a six minute workout, try adding a few additional exercises or repeat the Super 6 a second time for two sets and a longer workout. I personally do 30 minutes of training in a session. Hope that makes sense. Final note. If you are training that hard, make sure you allow for a day of rest in between

Bruce Hymanson Hi Marion. Breast size itself will not increase because the breast tissue is not muscle and does not have the capability of growing. The chest muscle below the breast tissue (Pectoralis Major and Minor) will become more toned which will can provide more support to the breast tissue and lift the breast. I suppose this may make them appear larger. The other comment last week was why do some get larger or smaller after weeks of exercise. The answer there is that some women when they lose fat, lose breast fat and others lose from the hips or tummy first. I would hope that a firmer bust and stronger, leaner muscle underneath will look better even if they appear larger.

Julia Gathercole Hi Bruce, I've been doing the super six circuit workout and really enjoy it, also added belly blaster one day and the willow Tree another day. Will i get the same results doing the circuits as I would if I did the super six?

Bruce Hymanson Perma-habits is so important in everything we do. Regular daily attention to our health and wellness is the key to longevity and happiness. You don't have to train like an Olympic athlete. When I say to do Bodyblade 3-4 times a week, that doesn't mean that you can't walk on the same day or on off days as well. You might like stretching on the same or off days as well. As long as you are giving yourself a rest from one group of exercises doesn't mean you have to just sit around on the off days. Hope that makes sense and inspires you to enjoy walking, breathing and stretching too

Anne Keating I've done a chart for the group the workouts Bruce but I think I need to redo it in view of your comments on the order of the exercises. I'll have to check that it's right. I've put the six exercises along the top and six weeks of Monday to Sunday down the side. I think some of us were going to start today.

Chris Jopp Hi everyone, I'm trying to get up a bit earlier every morning this week and doing a workout, either BB or Leslie Sansone. I didn't manage it today as I've had the grandchildren but starting tomorrow! I try to do the full Super 6 with the mobility moves at least 2 or 3 times a week and manage to do it all with just a couple of stops. However, if I try to do it without watching the video on You Tube (or the QVC one on my TIVO) I find that I lose concentration and don't seem to work as hard. Does anyone else have that happen?

 

Also, I am very lucky in that I'm quite flexible (despite my weight and age lol) and can do the wind down one where you put the blade behind your head and then lower down your back. No idea how I do it but am proud of myself for doing it! LOL!

Bruce Hymanson One final post today. First, hello Debbie!! Last comment on the value of doing something every day in terms of movement, exercise, walking etc. The body needs to be stimulated. If you regularly ask the body to perform, the body will remain alert and ready to take action. If you remain sedentary, the body won't be ready for action because it doesn't believe you when you say "now let's go". The body wants proof that you mean what you say. Keep active and your body will respond. Be inconsistent and the body says "why should I believe you?" Have a wonderful week and as always, I will keep reading posts for questions and comments. Cheers!

Published in Back to You

Hi once again! What an amazing week for Back to You – with over a hundred and fifty brand new members! Welcome if you’re one of them! (link to Facebook group is below, do join if not*)

Have just got back from a practically sell out show with Tarte Cosmetics and it reminded me to say that making yourself look nice is one of the best ways to lift your spirits, if you find you feel better when the mirror looks less like your mother. Actually, if you’re me and you put makeup on and look better, you end up looking MORE like your mother, since mine looks so damn young! But that’s another story… Tons of goodies still online if you want to revamp your makeup bag without costing the earth. Ditto with skincare – and Judith Williams’s new Today’s special Value, from the FutureSkin range with two new products, is about to happen. (Tuesday night at midnight, 2nd June.) Or even just changing your health routine to be a bit more focussed can be the lift you need.

I was chatting to one of our lovely models tonight, whom I will call Grace, a slightly older lady who was concerned about her current lifestyle choices, and we found ourselves saying this –

If you need a lift in your current lifestyle routine, make these choices instead – for just TWO WEEKS –

-       Cut right back on sugar, gradually – a tiny bit less each day (like a quarter teaspoon of sugar less each cup of tea or coffee) till it’s practically gone from your diet – for TWO WEEKS

-       Give your body a break from the things you KNOW it finds hard to deal with – for Grace it’s eggs, for me (I  love eggs!) it’s dairy, but I also don’t really eat meat, or wheat as first choice for my body – for TWO WEEKs

-       Do a specific exercise, even for ONE MINUTE every day – eg exercise number 6 from the Super6 on Bodyblade – for TWO WEEKs

-       Drink hottish (not boiling) water with a squeeze of lemon (a squeeze – not so it takes the surface off your teeth!) every day instead of your breakfast cuppa – FOR TWO WEEKS

-       And practise forgiveness – instead of mulling over things you can’t change – because if you can’t change it, there’s no point worrying over it, and if you CAN change it, just do it – there’s no point worrying over it! This way you can start getting your head sorted out too.

-       So are you up for the TWO WEEK lifestyle kick?

-       If you want to go the whole hog, do it alongside Freedom Eating (see links to my TTFLS book below) – giving you a better outline of what to do around food, and act llike a slim person – FOR TWO WEEKS

-       Finally be prepared to go public – tell someone you’re doing it – if that tactic makes you more likely to stick to it. If not, keep schtum and do it just for you – FOR TWO WEEKS!

Let me know how you get on!

On my Till the Fat Lady Slims group, (TTFLS) many are taking the second THREE MONTH CHALLENGE and already seeing good results again. But remember that ups and downs are part of the progress. Realising that they are normal and not to be panicked over is the first step.

And just look at this – made me well proud! -

Great Results.

Here are some more fab comments that have gone up on the groups I run this week – what’s yours? Do tell us on one of them! (links are below)

And this from QVC UK item 704285 - “" I have lost three and a half stone with slimming world and one thing I've found is the necessity to keep reviewing what I'm doing as my weight loss continues, otherwise complacency creeps in and my weight creeps up! This book has made me think carefully about when and how much I eat and I noticed that I eat at mealtimes whether hungry or not, and I finish my plate even if I was satisfied much earlier. So I tweaked these things this week and lost three pounds. I was also really interested in what the book says about the effects of sugar...I was really impressed by Debbie's detailed references for further reading. Her book has encouraged me to think of my weight loss as a project and be less passive and more proactive about understanding what's going on in the process. Sorry, I'm going on and on, but I was surprised by how much I got from this.”

How lovely – it’s reviews like this that make my hard work maintaining the groups and devoting so much time replying and posting, worthwhile. Thank you so much for such a lovely review.

NB hardback is still available on QVC item 704285. £10 incl p&p x

 

Webchats – this week Bruce talked about the Bodyblade... Also on Back to You QVC group, Sara Hollamby for Judith Williams skincare – launching the Futureskin TSV tonight/tomorrow (2nd/3rd)! And the lovely Marie-Francoise from Kipling gives an insight into the upcoming new TSV bag (7th). Their Q&A are at the bottom of this blog if you missed them. We also had a surprise visit from the fabulous Leigh from Tarte cosmetics during my time with her at QVC, in between the two shows I did. The replies were quite spread out so we’ve invited her back in time for her next shows in August. In the next few weeks it’ll be as follows –

June 8th – Abi Cleeve / Ultrasun PLUS top natural body care beauty range A’kin.

… to come – Marv our African Caribbean presenter on QVC talking about her fab new video for darker skins, Ali K, who gets married end of June!, and even – somehow – Alison Young…

PLUS - July 6th – Tom Ogden & Michelle / Alpha H

More Back to You next week – and remember to check in on the TTFLs page for more tips of the day to keep you going! (link below).

Other news –

-          Smoking ban in all public places in Beijing – again! – One of the worst things about Beijing, I found out in my QVC related trip in April, was the smog. Added to by people smoking – even still in some restaurants. There’s nothing more vile, in my opinion, especially in a city where most days you can’t see the sun. About time – but why did it fail the first time? More here

-          Just 4 days on meditation can improve your attention spaand a 48% reduction in risk for heart attack or stroke? Worth a read? more here.

 -          Can’t lose weight? The 5 internal Factors that rule your metabolism interesting stuff more here.

 

Best wishes for a fab week!

Sarah Hollamby for Judith Williams (TSV futureskin launching 3rd)

LIVE BACK TO YOU WEB CHAT SARA HOLLAMBY – JUDITH WILLIAMS

Welcome to Back To You QVC Sara! We are so pleased to have you here ahead of an amazing Judith Williams TSV XX

Sue Stewart Hi Sara it's so lovely to have you back again. I hope you are keeping well. I'm so looking forward to the TSV this week. Finished the moisturiser and the eye cream. Have a little serum left. Love this range perfect for the summer months. Can't wait to see the new product. What other goodies are you bringing x

 

Sarah Ness Hi Sara Hollamby-JudithWilliams I am a huge fan of Judith Williams products and I have been using them for Four years now, its really changed my skin, so a huge thank you! Also I would like to ask you, will there be any new Judith Williams skin care ranges coming to qvc? I would love to try the vitamin C range, will that be coming to Qvc this year? Many thanks. X

 

Denise Skerman Hi Sara I'm fairly new to Judith Williams range, I have seen noticeable changes to my skin since I've been using the Phytomineral all in one day and night cream & intensive eye cream. I'm thinking of getting the TSV but is it anti ageing and beneficial for over 60's please. X
