Debbie Flint

Thank you everybody who came on Saturday to our special event at Wotton Village Hall near Dorking in Surrey. And to anyone who donated online as well. What an amazing success. Including some private donations, we have actually reached £5000. Yes really! And I have some very big news about me and the charity, more of that next week.

This week’s Webchats was with me! Following the enormous success of the day, we all discussed it. More importantly lots of people posted links to articles, videos, and news features about medical detection dogs, the charity we did it all for. Many of the lovely dogs and owners turned up on the day and thank you to Christina and Annie and the team from MDD for attending and processing all the money.

Thank you also to my lovely helpers without whom I couldn't have done it.

So below is the full web chat transcript, and if you wanted to look on Facebook on the back to you QVC group you will probably be able to look back to Monday and find the full Q and A. Enjoy it, tons of reading below.

And well done to Dr Claire guest and team at MDD, for getting such wonderful coverage for the news that they are they have been granted the ability to use the dogs to help detect prostate cancer in hospital urine samples. As back up for the main tests which can be unreliable.

Thank you to Patrick from cracker, Abby from ultra sun, Polly from Imedeen, my lovely pal and CBBC presenter Craig, Ginetta from Veronese, and Selin from no-no as well as Justine Balmer from Gtech, all of whom attended and helped make the day a fabulous smash hit.

Next Monday the 17th, I believe we will be hearing from Lisa from a' kin!

Have a great week and speak soon. PS on my website homepage, I am posing an interesting question about meeting up, if you like till the fat lady slims, and bodyblade. Do you go here to read it. And email me your reply.

Best wishes have a great week

Another Story from Medical Detection Dogs

CLAIRE AND MAGIC “Magic and I have been together since September 2013, and life quite simply has not been the same since! It was a tricky decision to make in having an assistance dog for diabetes, especially when I work as a diabetes nurse for children and teenagers. I work at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge and lead the nursing team who help care for and support nearly 300 children, young people and families with diabetes. I’ve had diabetes since I was a teenager myself so it can be pretty useful knowing all the tips and tricks. I am used to people popping in to my office to say hello and ask questions, but since Magic has joined the diabetes team at the hospital I have never been so popular!

Magic now has a very important role in the diabetes clinic – welcoming the children and young people and making sure they are listening when we run teaching sessions. He has heard the sessions so many times he now falls asleep quite quickly and can often be heard snoring under the table. Whenever the office gets a little busy or stressed, he will yawn or have wind, stopping whatever is going on and allows everyone to have a little giggle before getting back on with their work. What is truly amazing is that although he is surrounded by children and young people with diabetes, many of whom come in with low blood glucose levels, he hasn’t alerted to anyone else – something I have to put down to his excellent training by Medical Detection Dogs. Many of our

patients now like to come in and say hello to Magic before saying hello to anyone else – although we don’t want this popularity to go to his head! It seems that the magic of Magic has far exceeded anything that anyone had planned – not only does he have a major role in keeping me

safe every day and helps me live my life, he also is helping many of my patients – making the diabetes clinic a happy and welcoming place. I think every clinic should have one – although, there is only one Magic in this world!” Claire

WEBCHATS – MONDAY 3RD AUGUST 2015

RADICAL SISTERS

 

Back You Live Web Chat Radical 3rd August 2015

Sisters Liz & Rachel will be here answering questions about their amazing skincare line. During an Ad hoc web-chat here, Qvc's resident beauty expert Alison Young was singing the praises of, and recommending this brand for Rosacea! As well as wonderful skincare, Rachel & Liz have an amazing outlook on life.

 Rachel: “To me Radical means living a life with intention, being kind and compassionate to myself and others, and being completely present in the moment with those around me. Taking a stand for something or someone to be that difference however big or small means I am on the right path for living a Radical life.

 Liz: "To me Being Radical means living a life that is full of passion and purpose with no excuses and no regrets while carrying the energy of kindness regardless. Feeling awake and alive through inspiring and empowering another and knowing that at the end of the day I didn't forget the simple things that really matter. " The first 10 unique questions ( not already asked) will receive a surprise Radical Skincare Gift

 

 

Dawn Robinson Hello Rachel & Liz , We could all truly live in harmony with each other taking some positive energy from both of you, My first question is which one of you beautiful ladies came up with the idea first to bring out this amazing & fabulous collection of skincare ? Also my Son is 16 and suffering from outbreaks ! Please can you advise me what product would help him the most ? Thank you xx

Sue Stewart Hi ladies what is dark circles under the eyes and what can I do to improve the look of it.

Chris Calvert We now live in an age where women are world leaders and trailblazers. What is your opinion on the women's movement and would you say that in the beauty industry, the glass ceiling has been broken unlike in other professions?

Chris Calvert What are the most common lifestyle and environmental factors that aggravate rosacea or trigger flare-ups?

Liz Clark those satements are rather profound for me Chris Calvert i still haven't woken up yet lol

I'm going to be naughty and ask two questions xxx

What would you recommend from your range for me; male, 33, sensitive/reactive skin can get oily, still get blemishes, large pores and the early signs of ageing x I know your products are great for both sensitivity and anti-ageing but didn't know if there was a good starting point for guys?

 

My second question (I hope all the above counts as one!!) I'd love to hear your guilty pleasure! Mine is collecting Lego if you are stuck for ideas!

 

I quite often miss the web chats, but will make a special effort as I love watching your shows xxx

Sue Stewart I'm multi tasking!

Debbie Flint Hey girls, have fun on here tonight and best of luck back on air! I am moving home so am off this week, but have lots of fun big hugs X PS one of our best product ranges for rosacea, as per Alison Young Webchats a month or two ago on here

Dawn Robinson Im glad you've mentioned Rosacea Debbie im finding mainly after getting out the bath or shower my left cheek in particular is very red & hot for a couple of hours ! What would you advise please ? xx

 

Jacqueline Jackson Hello and welcome, I keep getting breakouts on my cheek area, bizarrely just on one side. Is there anything in your range that could help me. I'm 51 with dry skin. Thank you x

Sharon Harvay The smell in these products is so uplifting, they make me feel so happy!! x

Rachel Edlich It is so great to see so many great questions and Radical LOVE. Radical is committed to making an impact in each persons life from the inside out, so all of your support means so much to us!

Sharon Harvay Welcome x

Francesca Bumstead What's best for dark circles around eyes x

Rachel Edlich Dawn Robinson, it was truly a perfect storm for the both of us. Liz was looking in the mirror and seeing that Gravity is truly real because is is the OLDER sister…HA! I had to say it because she is so cute!! She wasn't embracing what was looking back at her in the mirror. I was having my own 911 about my skin when I developed Rosacea after my second child and really lost all self confidence. We both looked at each other selfishly and said we need to fix our face no matter what the cost. That is truly what happened. Our moment of adversity we turned into an opportunitiy to change our skin and life. Sister truly on a mission!

Liz Edlich Chris Calvert great question….great question….The Women’s movement ? You mean the Radical Movement : ) !

I really believe that the only ceiling is the one that we impose on ourselves today. I agree that as woman we are mega Radical multi taskers and each industry presents challenges, but it is possible to love your skin again, it is possible to love your life, you just need to be Radical in your approach. Rachel and I have traveled around the world and in the process have been writing our book coming out in January named :GET RADICAL- Life Changing Secrets to Create a Life You Love. We interviewed thousands about what “Beauty “ means to them. And in all of the interviews, no one ever said dark hair , bright eyes, 5”7

In all cases they talked about how someone shows up on the inside that makes them beautiful . So love, giving , authenticity, kindness and generosity is what it blowing away all glass ceilings, combined with a commitment to Get Radical and make a difference.

Sharon Harvay Wow! Absolutely amazing xx

Dawn Robinson That's fantastic ! Sisters working together, Can i ask what age difference there is between you ? You both look stunning xx

Chris Calvert Fantastic Liz Edlich thank you for answering my question in such a Radical way smile emoticon i totally agree i think beauty is more about the person than how they look. I would love to read your book when it comes out.

Rachel Edlich Dawn Robinson, your Son should use the Exfoliating pads for SURE. My son uses those every day and steals mine :o).. make sure he is hydrating as well so the Youth Infusion would be great for him too. Light weight, hydrating and really men love this product too.

Sharon Harvay Youth Infusion is stunning!!! I am absolutely addicted and will be sharing my thoughts about it after..it really is a skin changer, which then becomes a life changer x

Jill Dowding-Walker Totally agree Liz! We need to take care of our container, but what is essential is invisible to the eye! (Thanks, Little Prince!)

Francesca Bumstead Agree with Sharon would not be without it xx

 

Francesca Bumstead Have to go feeling a little under the weather, have a great time xx

Dawn Robinson Thank you so much i really appreciate your advice ! He is feeling extremely self conscious about it at the moment, so glad that these products suit all ages xx

Liz Edlich sue stewart and Francesca Bumstead - Dark Circels - What are they ? Ha Ha After RADICAL SKINCARE THEY ARE A THING FROM THE [email protected]!!! When you apply your eye cream, go from the inside out , think of your lymphatic drainage as your trash can fro toxins. So move it all out and easy on the alcohol and a bit of sleep helps. But since the last two are hard to come by…. i will use my Radical Eye Reviv elite a religion and pray a little extra xoxoxo

Rachel Edlich Chris Calvert I get that question so much about what flares up Rosacea. Each person has a different experience on what triggers flair ups ranging from spicy food, STRESS, sun, overheating and lack of moisture to the skin. Some people experience a flushing sensation like I did and get red bumps and inflammation. Did I mention the change in HORMONES? You might not feel my pain in this area(darn men), however, that is what triggered everything for me.

Liz Edlich Chris Calvert - maybe the YOUNGER sister can step aside so the wiser sister can get you an early copy of the manuscript !!!

Jill Dowding-Walker Broken capillary veins on face - very fair skin. What will prevent more/calm down existing ones?

Dawn Robinson We can all see you're both extremely passionate about your products do you get any spare time if so what do you like to do ? X

Sue Stewart Thank you Liz I am tea total and sleep for 8 hours a night. Perhaps it will have to be the Radical Eye reviv. Thank you x

Chris Calvert Hi Rachel Edlich thank you for answering my question and giving your own personal experience with this area, i find its stress what can make my flare up the most, but was wondering if there was other factors, which you have answered so well. Im sure men get their share of hormone imbalances too haha.

Chris Calvert That would be absolutley fantastic Liz Edlich I would love to get a copy, as i am very excited about the release from the information you gave in your answer. Ha Ha i like how you put YOUNGER in caps smile emoticon

Sharon Harvay Ladies, you have such a zest and enthusiam for life and for you skincare range. It is very contagious! What do you enjoy to do in your spare time, when you need to recharge?x

Dawn Robinson Just wondering Rachel & Liz if you could only take one of your fabulous products on an Island for a week.. Which one would you pick ?? xx

Rachel Edlich Jacqueline Jackson I am sure that is very frustrating. Our Age Defying Exfoliating Pads are your ticket to smooth skin. Not will they help with pimples but reduce pore size, wrinkles around the Eye area(yes that gentle to use around your eyes), and I would follow with our Advance Peptide and Restorative moisture. You need to get the balance of moisture back into your skin and bring down inflammation down. good luck!

Liz Edlich michael james hamlyn michael james hamlyn 33 ? OK, you are running behind ! Time to get Radical - That is why we call it life changing skincare. We have loads of 18 year olds that use the products to balance reactive skin, For you - The cleanser - perfect for cleansing and shaving and stops those shaving bumps, then follow with the Anti Aging Exfoliating pads ( use at night ) to REDUCE pore size and wrinkles and get rid of the dead dull skin- follow with our Youth Infusion Serum which for you may act as enough anti aging hydration. if not , our Restorative moisture should follow. Then GET READY… this is a RADICAL game changer. No Fear ALL CLEAR when you wake up each day and your skin is the last thing that you have to think of and only get to beat off the ladies compliments: ) WOO HOO Jacqueline Jackson Thank you for your advice I really appreciate it. x

Sue Stewart If you go on the desert island as Dawn Robinson suggests with your favourite product. Would you please take me with you and give me a facial x

Rachel Edlich Dawn Robinson I am way younger! Not really… I am young childlike 46 and my sister is a rockstar 52 adorable old sis.

Liz Edlich my sister is answering the age question , she will be 47 in a sec !!! don't let her throw me under the bus girls, The older we get the more we know and the more we ROCK , Radically of course!!!

Sharon Harvay HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Michael James Hamlyn Not really sure about compliments from the LADIES Liz!!! wink emoticon But thanks for the reply, will certainly be getting RADICAL soon xxx

Sharon Harvay xxxxxx 30 minutes of live chat left, please post your questions xxxxx

Rachel Edlich Francesca Bumstead so good to have you here chatting! One of our most loyal Radical girls!! Don't miss our hour show coming up this Thursday at 12pm! Can wait to share some new Radical sets with you.XOXOX

Liz Edlich Dawn Robinson Dawn, I have a house in the Bahamas and Tahiti and I know for a fact that they allow more than one product on the islands, OR I would sell both homes…. but lets just say that there was a ban on weight overages, I would leave my clothes !!! not my skincare… OK seriously, your killing me,….. I would take the power duo-the Youth infusion and the Extreme Moisture

Sharon Harvay I would really urge everone who hasn t yet, to try this range. The results are amazing and your products are an absolute pleasure to use. I am addicted to the cleanser, it is the perfect way to start and end my day x

Dawn Robinson I love how your positive energy bounces off each other "beautiful" x

Liz Edlich michael james hamlyn - my must have … hot sauce , I carry that and asking care in my purse !

Rachel Edlich Don't forget the exfoliating pads to remove the dead skin from all the sun…! I CANT PICK JUST ONE. …and the eye Cream…Don't forget to cleanse with our hydrating cleanser!..( i need an stressed out emoji showing that I can't make a decision.How do I do that?)

Sue Stewart

Dawn Robinson I can imagine that all your friends & family get really excited when it's there Birthdays or Christmas hoping to receive one of your amazing products x

 

Jacqueline Jackson When will your shows be on QVC? x

Rosie Lee Hi there fab sisters. great to have you back in the UK Just one question i have beeen using the eye serum for over a year but for the last few weeks it has been irritating my eyes, an ideas why x

Sue Stewart Found a stressed fox for you. He looks scared in case he forgets your products x

Sharon Harvay hahahahahahahahaa x

 

Sharon Harvay xxxxxxxxxx 15 minutes of live chat left xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Rachel Edlich Jill Dowding-Walker that is always a difficult one on the broken capillaries. I had several when my skin was super inflamed with bumps all over it. The beauty with Radical Skincare is that it is the strongest skincare for anti aging designed for sensitive skin. Our Youth Infusion works to even and brightening the skin while the restorative moisture has three brightening ingredients that will help with evening the skin tone.

Liz Edlich dawn robinson dawn robinson Spare time ??/Thank goodness Rachel and I travel together or I wouldn't get to see one of my best friends on the planet. My spare time and passion and purpose is wrapped up in inspiring people to have a life they love. That is why , as much as our book GET RADICAL that comes out in January , is as painful as giving birth , so Rachel says : ), it embodies the legacy of making a Radical difference that lights us up daily. A difference in skin and in life. Just like our Dad changed the landscape of medicine from his wheel chair, we intend to change the landscape of skincare and be more than skin deep. xo

Rachel Edlich OMG..How do I get that FOX it is perfect!

Sue Stewart Rachel Edlich press and hold the fox it should ask if you want to download lots of them x

Sharon Harvay Liz Edlich - i love the Radical booklet that comes with your products, its very inspiring x

Rachel Edlich Our Dad was a huge inspiration to us along with our outstanding mom. We were fortunate to have such amazing Radical parents surrounding us driving to make a difference. They showed us how we can be that difference everyday. They are our inspiration.. feel blessed

Published in Back to You

How amazing if your life could be changed by a dog. I know thousands are, every year. But read the story below - it really hammered home to me how lucky I am to be healthy and how precious health, and life, is. I love mine too but this week Escape Dog has been causing a bit of a problem knowing I need to dog-proof the whole perimeter - it's about 200 feet all round. So I hope I've hit upon a solution - ingenious but rather obvious so I won't congratulate myself too much, apart from knowing I hopefully won't need to now buy electric collar prevention! lol. And anyway, in the pic is little new next door neighbour Maggie the tiny 10 week old spaniel, so, no she's not mine, but I wish she was! Mine will love barking at her through the fence no doubt! Will show you pics next week, once I've moved in...

The Big Move is upon me - I shift the final bits this coming weekend and then will be in my new (bijoux) place - even if much of my furniture won't! It's so tiny there! lol. But 'offspring number one' gave it a kind of seal of approval when he helped me move in much of my peripheral stuff last Sunday (cushions, tiffany lamps, bears, cutlery) - Brad said 'Hey mum, it's nice here isn't it - cosy... nice countryside... if you keep it tidy maybe we'll come and stay one weekend when you're away!'

Haha! How the tables have reversed! It wasn't that long ago I was chastising him for his messy bedroom, and now he's married and will be the one with the messy home once babies start coming along in maybe a couple of years! Eeek! Granny Flint! lol.

I've loved being in pretty Wales this week too, all this week, taking a long-ago-booked writing break at Literature Wales near Porthmadoc on the West coast. More fab advice from my mentor Julie Cohen and also award winning author Rowan Coleman, whose Richard And Judy nominated book I bought on Audible this week for my journey home - more on Riwisi. here - with lots of tips for writers from Katie Fforde, our special guest for the midweek Q&A - very interesting. click here for more.

Well when I'm moved in and the madness has slowed to a dribble, I'll finish French or Dutch - that's for sure! I have big plans for the next ones so it's got to happen! More news soon!

Anyway have a fab week - I'm not on air on QVC much due to the move, just this Sunday (26th) for the fab Elemis TSV skin and bodycare deal 208738 for under £60, and Monday night late including Bobbi Brown makeup deals. 

Then it's my Table Top Sale in Dorking - this week we were donated some raffle prizes of Imedeen (worth over £165) skin supplements, and Alpha H skincare amongst others and don't forget if you live near Wotton Hatch pub and come along on August 8th you can get your collagen levels checked! more about the event here.

It is of course raising money for Medical Detection Dogs, the awesome charity which I've committed to support ongoing, and will enjoy handing over the funds to the team who are bringing their card machine along on the day too. Helping to make stories like Claire's happen - see below. She will be there on the day too, with her lovely dog Pal. You may even see an alert in action. It's quite humbling to be honest, and I'm glad to be involved. btw here is link to get involved early with a donation if you can't come. Next week I'll have news of how you can bid or buy a raffle ticket for, the upcoming mega draw.

Have a fab week and don't forget the exclusive below!

ps here's my Friday QVC blog as promised, for those who find it hard to locate the web links nowadays - go here to read it. including my own Daisy Dog wanting to communicate to me!

And this week's Back to You blog features the webchat with makeup expert June who supports Doll 10 etc. Also here's an exclusive - Doris Dalton telling everyone how to apply her eye makeup pallette! click this link below to watch it - it will go on next week's blog but you are the first to see it!

Doris's eye makeup tutorial - Doll 10 set on QVC sold out! Watch this for more - click here.

And here's Claire's story about her lovely Detection Dog Pal:

“Pal and I have been partnered for 3 years now and how different those years have been. Pal came into my life when things were going down hill fast.I have been a type 1 diabetic for 40 years and my hypo awareness was gradually disappearing, my husband and children were coming home to find me unconscious on almost a daily basis,this was having dire consequences on us all. At the same time I was diagnosed with end stage renal failure, this ended up with me suffering with ptsd, things were pretty grim. 
Pal was introduced to me via an amazing charity called medical detection dogs. Pal was trained to pick up on my blood sugar levels falling and rising and to alert me to test and take appropriate action. 
He is my life saver and life changer, we have come so far together.  He is by my side where ever we go, what ever we do he saves my life on a daily basis.  He is loyal, funny, smart endearing and most importantly my friend for life. 
Pal and I were lucky enough to be Crufts Friends for Life finalists this year, we were nominated by my sons, who opened their hearts to the world about how difficult things had been and how Pal has given us back our lives. We owe Pal and Medical Detection Dogs so much
We are so pleased to represent such an amazing charity
