Hi all I just wanted to say thank you for this. (Anyone who buys a raffle ticket you don't have to say going because you clearly have already gone!smile emoticon X)

When I first found out about medical detection dogs I was blown away by how amazingly talented these gorgeous creatures are. The lovely canine companions alert their owners when they go below five and above 15 blood sugar measurements, for instance, in the case of serious T1 diabetes, meaning they can live a more normal life - with their routine at least, just taking the dog with them wherever they go.

Secondly this charity is doing research into detecting prostate cancer, early, and more accurately , considering how many false positives the standard PSa measurements give.

When they asked me to be an ambassador I was over the moon, because it encompasses so much. It helps children, it helps all sorts of people with all sorts of illnesses, it helps detection of prostate cancer and even down the line also breast cancer and ovarian cancer, and it won't stop there.

But there is a long 3 yr waiting list for owners to have puppies, it cost £11,000 to train a puppy from start to finish plus £750 a year upkeep, and the more we can do , the sooner someone like eg a little boy or girl under 10 with type 1 diabetes can live a more normal life.

Thank you so much if you could possibly share this page as well - the just giving page I mean, fingers crossed you will get some other people give to it too.

And after all you stand a chance of winning some amazing prizes! Thank you to everyone who is buying more than one it's wonderful to have your donations X

He's here! Do you remember me telling you about my charity letting me name a little trainee detector dog after we raised enough funds back in August at my Table Top sale? Well this week Little 'Derek' the labrador pup arrived and was duly named, after my late dad. How cute is he! There's a three year waiting list though, and it breaks my heart that we can't help more people, sooner. Would you help?

How? Well, the fabulous news is out! And you should see what's on offer in the super Xmas Mega Draw in aid of my amazing charity Medical Detection Dogs. From £300 luggage from Kipling through beauty bundles from hair care to skin care to watches from DKNY and Guess plus a printer, a fab DAB radio and more. All the money goes to the charity and I hope we can help buy them more puppies, and more freezers for their prostate cancer detection trial samples. It's a crucial time and every penny counts.

Just find out more about it all on the event page where more prizes will go up over the next two weeks until the draw on 14th December - FBk  event page is here with the pics of the prizes. And here's my own website charity page where I put new info about MDD. Going there again soon!

Or go straight to the Just Giving page to buy your tickets - £5 each that's all - if you do it soon, it'll only take about 4 mins especially if you have an account already - and thanks to those buying more than one - it's a lovely way to donate and I'm overjoyed to be able to provide such a huge Xmas Draw. Only on till 14th so buy now! - click here https://www.justgiving.com/Sara-Brown14 

Had to share this with you this week too - sorry if your 'gross-tolerance-level' is on the low side, but if you like seeing stuff peeling off faces, watch my Gatineau Gommage 'reveal' here - sorry if you're grossed out! lol! 

Survey Eye products - be counted! Gatineau's TSV launch on Sunday had their super new eye product. So I made up a short three minute sutrvey - Go here to take part - just five questions - on this week's Saturday Survey about eye products. And hope you enjoyed the Friday night Qpage fbk webchat with Gatineau's Andrew! And if you're an Andrew Bagley fan, one of the prizes in the Mega Draw is £100 of Gatineau products and if you're near enough to collect it, a coffee with Andrew!

Friday's QVC Blog has a super sneaky peek of next weekend's Links of London Today's Special value! Go see the pic of the pretty bracelet here. And thanks to the team for putting the first look peek on my blog. Do join me every Friday to be the first to read the updates. And the funnies - some super videos this week too. Tonight, Monday, I'm back on air on QVC UK including an hour with Tarte cosmetics by the way - maybe even including a one time only? It's at 11pm after the last airing of the Tom Tom sat nav TSV by the way, fab deal at 10.

Amazing new Till the Fat Lady Slims pics - just have a look at Dawn's before and afters on the latest Back to You blog here. As you may know, my semi-autobiographical weight loss book (version 2.0 is here) is helping lots lose weight and conquer their food issues. And Dawn's pics will be in version 3 out in January. Am very proud when I read their stories and hear about the difference it's making to their lives. Just like it made to mine. Hope there will be even more in the next month or so.

Tova - webchat tonight Monday 30th on our 'Back to You QVC' Facebook group - go here to take part in the online Q&A with lovely Tova Borgnine 8-9pm tonight.

My Paperback in the Shops Update - heard that more stock will finally be in eg Euston WHSmith-Travel outlets on or before 3rd Dec - that's this week! Squeeee! Getting nearer and nearer - hope you can find it and take a pic if you don't mind - am so exited to see it on a proper bookstore shelf - take a 'shelfie'! Or get Take a Chance on Me here on Amazon now. (and my RiWiSi book of the week is from our Molton Brown guest Jemma Forte - yes really - go here.)
