  • 03/09/15--11:14: A Fabulous March!
  • Hi darlings!

    How are you? I am DIVINE and I have lots of updates for you. 

    We just had a gorgeous launch event for my new beauty line, True Isaac Mizrahi! It was a great evening with True Isaac Mizrahi makeovers, a fun photo booth, cake pops and delicious True Beauty cocktails.

     

    There was a psychic doing aura readings, so obviously I had to get mine done. She said that my aura was purple and indigo, which means intuitive, visionary and a daydreamer. I’ll take it!

    The aura photo booth – so fun!

    Last week, I filmed a marvelous little video for New York Magazine. It’s part of their Icons Give Thanks series and I talked about a mentor that totally changed my life.

    We had so much fun filming and it was really kind of special to be able to remember this person and reflect on how much they’ve impacted me.

    I met with my dear friend Debbie Millman to record an interview for her podcast, Design Matters. Darling, we literally talked about everything — Arnold, the dogs, Real Housewives marathons, and some of the things that inspire me the most. 

    I am seriously so happy that we are finally getting closer to spring. Even the dogs are sick of the cold and snow!  I call this Harry’s emo winter look. 

    I can’t wait to take the boys out for long walks without their winter booties and not have to dodge snow banks and puddles! How fabulous! 

    Keep thinking spring kids! See you soon!

    Hi, everyone!

    Tell me you’ve gotten sucked in on Pinterest and lost at least 30 minutes of your day. It happens to me all the time. I start with one idea, then I find three others I like, and then they start “suggesting” pins for you! And OF COURSE I like them all!

    If you haven’t made the Pinterest plunge just yet, think about it. It’s almost like flipping through the pages of your favorite magazine—only it’s endless. And you can create boards where you keep those ideas forever and ever.

    I bring Pinterest up because I was thinking about St. Patrick’s Day and wouldn’t you know I found the cutest ideas…

     

    Shamrock Pretzel Pops & Pots of Gold

    I took those ideas and ran and made my own versions of Shamrock Pretzel Pops and Pots of Gold!

    Shamrock Pretzel Pops

    Ingredients:

    • 1 bag mini pretzels
    • 1 bag M&Ms (pick your favorite kind—but use only the green)
    • 2 rolls of Rolo candies
    • Cake pop sticks
    • Green and white ribbon (optional)

    Preparation:

    1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment or wax paper.
    2. Create pretzel shamrocks on your cookie sheet, using three pretzels per shamrock. Unwrap a Rolo and place it in the middle of each shamrock, where the three pretzel-bottoms meet. Bake for 4–5 minutes, or until the caramel gets soft.
    3. Quickly, while the chocolates are still hot, place an M&M on the top of the Rolo and then insert the stick into the Rolo-bottom. Hold the pretzels in place and gently press down on the M&M. Let the cake pops cool for at least 1 hour before serving or standing them up.

    Shamrock Pretzel Pops

    We photographed our pops in a bowl filled with green M&Ms and wrapped Rolo candies, which you’re welcome to do. Or, you can also create pots of gold for your pops! And you can do it while the pops are cooling and hardening.

    Pots of Gold

    Pots of Gold

    You’ll Need:

    • Small terra-cotta pots
    • Black acrylic spray paint
    • Mod Podge
    • Paintbrush
    • Gold glitter
    • Paper
    • Pencil
    • Scissors

    Directions:

    1. Spray-paint the terra-cotta pots and let them air dry for 15 minutes.
    2. Paint the inside-top-rim of each pot with Mod Podge and then sprinkle glitter on the area. Let it dry for 10 minutes.
    3. Paint and glitter the outside-top-rim. Let the pots dry for 20 minutes.
    4. Meanwhile, draw a shamrock onto some thin paper. (Or, if you aren’t much of an artist, find a printable shamrock on the computer.) Cut out the shamrock to make a stencil.
    5. Press the stencil flat onto the side of the pot, paint Mod Podge over the stencil, and sprinkle the area with glitter.
    6. Let the pot dry for 5 minutes and then carefully peel away the stencil.

    Now, if you don’t have Mod Podge at home, you can easily use Elmer’s glue, a glue stick, or even one of those glitter pens. And don’t stop with gold glitter—if you want to use green, or do a combination of colors, that works too!

    St. Patrick’s Day is coming up next Tuesday. You’ve got plenty of time to make these in time for the holiday. If you're looking for a more grown-up St. Patty's Day Treat, check out my Luck of the Irish Bread Pudding!

    Trevor & The Butterfly Exhibit

    Here’s just a fun photo before I close...Trevor loved the butterfly experience at the Philadelphia Flower Show on Friday. I’ll be sharing a new blog about that later this week, but this was definitely a highlight. We all had so much feeding and admiring those beauties!

    I’ll see you TOMORROW for You’re Home with Jillat 6pm ET. Mark your calendars!

    From my home to yours,
    —Jill

  • 03/09/15--11:42: Pineapple Pie for Pi Day
  • Pi Day is Saturday, March 14. I’m not a math whiz, but there’s pie involved, so count me in! I have a great recipe for Pineapple Pie, which is a bonus on Pi Day because both words of the recipe title start with Pi. Even better, check out this equation: Easy Ingredients + No Measuring + No Cutting + No Baking = Perfect Pie. Also, my kids are older so this is a good excuse to engage them in something they’d call fairly tolerable fun. My son, age 12, dumped in the pineapple. He wouldn’t let me include his face in the picture because apparently he’s too cool in the witness protection program. My daughter, age 15, sent moral support from her bedroom where I’m sure she was texting her friends doing math homework. This recipe makes two pies. So you can save the second for Easter which automatically makes you a mathematical genius.

    Enjoy!

    Hello, Gluten Free Friends! I made a new recipe the other night and knew I had to share it, ASAP. Ready?

    INGREDIENTS

    1 tub Pillsbury gluten-free dough

    1 9-ounce package of frozen spinach (defrosted, water squeezed out)

    ½ cup mayo

    1 egg

    ¾ cup shredded Parmesan cheese (save two pinches for the last step)

    ½ tsp garlic salt

    2 tablespoons heavy cream

    4 Campari (medium-sized) tomatoes, sliced

    Handful of Kalamata olives, halved

    DIRECTIONS

    Preheat your oven to 350° F. Lightly spray a tart pan or 8” x 8” brownie pan with cooking oil. (I used my tart pan from years ago (it’s my favorite), but I spy a tart pan from Le Creuset on our website! How cool, didn’t even know it was there until now…great piece to have!

    Time to roll out the play-doh! Grab a small handful of the dough and roll it out like a snake (remember how you did that in kindergarten?). Once the dough is soft and pliable, fit it into the sides of your pan. Repeat this step for all for sides.

    Now it’s time to fill in the bottom. Warm the dough in your hands and press it into the bottom. No need to make it thick, this can be a very thin layer. OR, if you want it thicker, feel free to make it that way. Once your crust is filled in, set the pan aside.

    Make sure your spinach is thoroughly defrosted and all the excess water is squeezed out. In a large bowl, combine the spinach, mayo, egg, the majority of the cheese (minus those two pinches), the garlic salt, and heavy cream. Give the mixture a good stir until all the ingredients are evenly mixed. Spread the mixture onto your crust.

    Now you’re ready for your toppers! Evenly place the sliced tomatoes and halved kalamata olives on your tart. (Can I just say I love Campari tomatoes? At last count, there were more than 6,000 tomato varieties in the U.S. WOW. PLEASE feel free to use whatever tomato you have available!)

    Add the remainder of your cheese…

    Bake for 22-25 minutes, or until the sides and tops are golden brown. (As always, ovens vary. But this cooked up faster than I thought in a tart pan. So, stay close!) Let the tart cool for 5-7 minutes (or as long as you can physically stand it).

    It’s time to eat! This recipe is SO GOOD IT’S STUPID. My ITKWD teammate, Amy, said it’s one of her favorite recipes that I’ve made. That’s awfully nice! I’ll just have to make her another one!

    Please let me know what you think AND if you changed up the toppings, I’d love to try your version. Thank you for reading and more to come! Xoxo, Mary DeAngelis

    It’s National Nutrition Month! How you choose to eat is a really personal choice. We all have favorite foods and the things we can’t stomach, but learning to eat what’s good for our bodies is a journey that we all go on individually. People always ask me about what I like to keep around the house, and so this month I wanted to share with you some kitchen staples that I think go a long way to keeping me and my family eating right. I’m also on a major budget. Those two things don’t always go hand in hand so I have to work really hard on my list of pantry and freezer staples! I tend to buy things in bulk whenever they’re on sale, that’s a great way to always have a good choice on hand. Here are a few of my staples:  

    Refried Beans (preferably black)

    Coconut Oil

    Enchilada sauce

    Light Chunk Tuna

    Rice

    Quinoa

    Steel Cut Oatmeal

    Garbanzo beans (I make Hummus every week!)

    Sesame paste (Tahini—for the Hummus!)

    Kidney Beans

    Black Beans

    Apple Sauce Squeezers

    Peanut Butter

    Almond Butter

    Brownies (my huge vice!)

    Agave (an all-natural sweetener)

    Olive Oil

    Tamari (a darker soy sauce)

    Franks Red Hot (we “Buffalo” any and everything!)

    Cholula Hot Sauce

    Tarjin (from the Mexican store, it’s my favorite spice!)

    Rye Crisp Crackers

    Raisins

    KIND Bars

    Almonds

    Cashews

    Salsa

    Gluten-free chips for dipping

    In terms of the fresh stuff we make a lot of chili and Mexican food and eat a ton of fish and ground turkey. I make fresh and frozen fruit and vegetable shakes every day in my Vitamix. I’ve decided to go with only organic for anything that comes from an animal, which is a big expense so we’ve cut down a bit on eating meats. When I do buy it, it’s only organic ground turkey, chicken, pork, beef, eggs etc. Here are a few other things that are always on my list...

    Almond Milk

    Greek yogurt

    Tomatoes

    Frozen fruit (or fresh if in season)

    Frozen kale & spinach (or fresh if in season)

    Brussels sprouts

    Avocados

    Cheese - usually Sharp Cheddar

    Apples

    Tempeh

    Tortillas

    Cauliflower

    Sugar snap peas

    Salmon

    Mahi Mahi

    Shrimp

    Artichokes

    Lettuce

    Blackberries

    Blueberries

    Strawberries

    Bananas

    Pizza dough and/or frozen pizzas.

    I’m always looking for new ideas, easy meals and things the kiddos will eat! So please share any tips/recipes/pantry staples you love with me on my Facebook page! Shop and eat with Joy :)

    Hello, foodies…

    I had a great, but very short weekend. And somehow today is nearly over! I had every intention of finding and posting some photos from my Philadelphia Flower Show presentation on Friday but I just didn’t get to it. Instead, I think I'll post a special blog on Thursday…and I’ll share all of the recipes I made at the show as well as some photos. In short, we had a wonderful experience...the staff was awesome, the presentation went well, and so many of you came. I can’t wait to tell you all about it.

    This Wednesday night on In the Kitchen with Davidwe’re continuing with our Easter & Spring favorites theme and making a truly incredible recipe…Pineapple Upside-Down Bread Pudding. It’s on my list of 20 best recipes we’ve EVER made on the show.

     

    Pineapple Upside-Down Bread Pudding
    Serves 12

    This recipe is prepared with the Ninja 4-in-1 6-Quart Multi-Cooker with Recipe Book & Travel Bag (K41333).

    Go to David's Recipe Item Page for the full list of items that David has used in his recipes.

    Ingredients:
    Bread Pudding:

    • 1 cup whole milk
    • 1 (14-oz) can sweetened condensed milk
    • 4 large eggs
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 8 cups (12-oz) challah bread cut into 3/4" cubes
    • 2-1/2 cups chopped fresh pineapple
    • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter
    • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

    Glaze:

    • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    • 3 Tbsp melted butter
    • 2 tsp whole milk

    Preparation:

    1. Grease the Ninja multipurpose pan with cooking spray and set it aside. Whisk together the milk, condensed milk, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl until evenly incorporated. Set aside.
    2. Melt the butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Add the brown sugar and stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the chopped pineapple and cook, stirring, for 8 minutes, or until lightly brown and all the moisture has evaporated.
    3. Place the cubed bread and 1-1/2 cups of the cooked pineapple into the egg mixture and toss. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes until the bread has absorbed all the liquid. Meanwhile, place the remaining cup of cooked pineapple on the bottom of the prepared pan. Pour the bread mixture on top and evenly distribute.
    4. Pour 4 cups of water into a Ninja 4-in-1 cooking system pot. Place the metal rack inside, then place the prepared pan onto the rack. Set oven to 325°F and set the timer for 50 minutes. Do not lift the lid during the baking process.
    5. When timer beeps, remove the pan (with the rack) and allow the bread pudding to cool. Meanwhile, pour the glaze ingredients into a small bowl and mix until evenly incorporated and slightly thick. After 15 minutes, unmold the bread pudding onto a serving platter, drizzle it with the glaze, and serve immediately.

    Pineapple Upside-Down Bread Pudding

    We used tomorrow’s Today’s Special Value® (a Ninja 4-in-1 Multi-Cooker) to prepare this because you can’t find a better vessel to make bread pudding. Because the lid is sealed tight, and we added water to the bottom, all that wonderful steam is trapped inside and infused into the pudding, keeping it really moist and perfectly prepared. Tomorrow’s TSV also comes with a recipe book and its own travel bag. Stay tuned for more details on that.

    Foodies, your blog question today is what’s your favorite kind of bread pudding? Do you like a classic with cinnamon and raisins? Maybe my Bananas Foster Bread Pudding? Or, maybe you prefer a savory bread pudding with herbs and spices? I’ll see you all on Wednesday night at 8pm ET.

    Keep it flavorful!
    —David

    EDIT -

    Foodies, while Ninja 4-in-1 multi-cooker is the preferred baking method (because it holds in the steam), you can make this recipe in your oven. Place the bread pudding in a 9" x 9" greased casserole dish, cover it with aluminum foil, and place it on the center rack of the oven. Place a casserole dish with 3 cups of hot water on the bottom rack of the oven. Bake the bread pudding at 325°F for 30 minutes. Then, remove the foil and continue baking, 20-25 minutes longer.

  • 03/10/15--08:20: My first day with G.I.L.I
  • Hi there! I am smiling as I write this, as I am so thrilled to begin this new chapter in my life…and am thrilled to be beginning it with you.  

     

    Let me start by saying…I am beyond honored to be welcomed into the G.I.L.I family.  This is a brand I know you have come to trust and count on for luxurious, elegant pieces (and for good reason.) I promise, along with our team who has been with G.I.L.I since the beginning, we will deliver products that you will fall in love with.

     

     

    I know many of you already. For those who I don’t, I started with QVC in February of 2013 when I launched a home organizational line “Jill by Jill Martin”. In my two years at QVC, I helped many of you whip your closets into shape (and in turn) helped you to shop in your own closet. I have gotten amazing feedback that so many of you have saved money in the process and are now able to buy investment pieces you actually will wear.  Along with the G.I.L.I line, I will continue to provide you with items that will help organize you at home and while your travelling. Your closet should look like a boutique so you feel like you are shopping in it every day!

     

    The reason I decided to partner up with G.I.L.I is simple. The brand and I represent the same things. I am committed to giving women products that are good investments but that also help develop a lifestyle.  I will never encourage you to buy every item, only items that work for you. I am going to work tirelessly with the team, to make sure you get what you want. I have read many of your comments on current products and as the line develops, we will take your suggestions seriously and incorporate the feedback into new pieces.

     

    Just so you know my background. I have been in Fashion since the day I graduated from the University of Michigan. I have been with the Today Show for eight years. My segments include, “Steals and Deals & Ambush Makeover.”  Viewers have come to count on me for quality items at affordable prices. My motto is, I would never offer anything I wouldn’t wear or use.

     

    And for those sports fans, I am a Broadcaster for the New York Knicks. You can spot me on the sidelines interviewing celebrities at halftime. I have been influenced by many different parts of my life…and am grateful for all of my opportunities.

     

    Joining me in this adventure is my fabulous mother, Georgette. She is creative, relatable (and crazy!)  You will get to know her along the way and I am sure you will love her as much as I do. My family is truly joining yours.

     

     

    See you on March 26th, I promise you will not be disappointed - we have something very special!  Looking forward to this journey together. I am giving this my all, and with me, you’ll always be able to say, “Got it. Love it.” 

     

    XO

    Jill

  • 03/10/15--08:57: Irish Ambassador Award
  • QVC received a great honor, the Irish Ambassador Award from Ambassador Anne Anderson, the first woman Ambassador to the United States from Ireland. I was asked to accept the award on behalf of QVC, and when I spoke I dedicated the award to you, our passionate Irish customers!

    The way we received the award is a wonderful story. One of the Board members from Philadelphia traveled to Ireland with her daughter last summer.  They went to a demonstration of Irish pottery and met the artist. They were surprised to hear he came to West Chester to present his items on QVC. Yes, he was our own Colm de Ris! After returning home and doing more research, the Ambassador Award was given to QVC for the 25 years of impacting Irish businesses in such a big way.



    The day of the award ceremony, the city was in a state of emergency due to snow.  Nothing would stop me from accepting this award!!

    Ambassador Anderson is brilliant and was fascinated by QVC and our Irish connection.

    This award is thanks to you!!

    -Jane

    Hi Everyone!

    Its only a few days until Joseph and I travel to the USA for St Patricks Day!  We are super excited and getting ready here at JMH Jewellery.  Our products arrived in QVC already; we just need to get there ourselves now!  We are thrilled with the selection we are bringing to QVC for St Patrick’s Day... Just wait and see...we've been working on pieces of jewelry inspired by Ireland's rich collection of folklore, and the results are just stunning! 

    Also, for the eagle eyed among you, have a look at this picture of Joseph and I discussing the early storyboard design for one of our new items... what could it be? Delicate swirls...pretty knots...lets add some vibrancy in the form of gemstones…Peridot, Garnet, Citrine, Blue Topaz and Black Spinel!  Oooooooo!

    Who likes dragonflies?  We discovered recently that Ireland is home to a very rare dragonfly known as the Emerald Dragonfly. It lives in high up in the mountains in Kilarneys National Park in Co Kerry, in the south west tip of Ireland.. Joseph & I were inspired by his vibrant green beauty, and we designed a gorgeous pin pendant which we will be thrilled to air on St Patrick's Day.

    And this little treasure is Jeanne, she came with me to QVC last year to celebrate St Patrick's Day, this year she's staying home with her dad. Here she is modelling one of West End Knitwear's sweaters. I think its a little too big!!

    We cant wait to get to QVC, looking forward to seeing you on March 17th!

    Eve & Joseph

  • 03/10/15--10:40: A Glorious Sea Breeze!
  • I remember the moment that I knew that I was going to marry my (now) husband..... we were in Australia walking by the beach, there was the most glorious sea breeze and we were talking about the future, our hopes and our dreams and he said that he wasn't sure where in the world he would end up but he needed to live close to the ocean and somehow I just knew that I was going to be part of that adventure…. twenty years and three kids later we live less than a ten minute walk from the crashing waves and most weekends we are down skimming stones, building sandcastles or just breathing in deep and 'drinking' that sea air!

    I always wonder was it fate that brought me to work at Fragrances of Ireland? A company with such strong links to the ocean…. I will be bringing you lots of lovely new exciting things to enjoy on March 17th and  I am really excited to be able to introduce them to you and cannot wait to hear what you think!!

    See you soon!

    Happy International Day of Awesomeness!

    Yes, it’s a real thing! Today is for celebrating everything and everyone that is awesome in your life, and I’m celebrating my awesome friends and all the joy and love they bring me every day.  I don’t know what I’d do without my friends to get me through some of the tough times and help me celebrate the triumphs. As wonderful as it all is, it’s bittersweet to watch your kids grow up and eventually head on to college and move out. The relationships I’ve built during this time have helped me grow into the person I am today. It’s like watching yourself grow as your kids grow, with your friends helping you along the way.  As the kids leave the house, a whole new world opens up and I have some amazing people in my life who have exposed me to different experiences.

    For example, my good friend, Leah Williams took me to a Painting with a Twist class and I loved it so much that painting has now become one of my favorite pastimes. I used to paint a long time ago, but that day sparked something I hadn’t taken the time to enjoy for way too long. I recently painted a portrait of a friend here at QVC for her birthday and she loved it. The evolution of yourself is yours if you take time to recognize it (with your awesome friends cheering you on)!

    Speaking of awesomeness, I’m so lucky to get to work with my best friend every day. Pat and I recently sat down to talk about our friendship (things got a little emotional – get the tissues out when you watch!) and we’re so happy to be able to share it with you during our shows. Now go call all your awesome friends and thank them for everything they do for you (I’m sure they’ll return the favor).  

    Don’t forget to check out my Facebook page on Wednesday for our Mid-Week Sneak Peek item and if you haven’t already, be sure to like my page to get updates each week. #MWSP

    Tune in Friday 3/13 at 10pm for Fashionably Late with Jayne & Pat. Pat’s away this week, so it’s just me flying solo, but grab your girlfriends for an awesome night in.

    Blessings,

    Jayne

    Meet Alice. Alice is the latest member to join the Roe family. She and our son, Eric will be married next month in London where they met in church. And what a coincidence that Mark and I also met in church?!

    Alice and Eric were engaged in October and will be married in April and Mark and I were engaged in the month of October and were married in April. Mark and I have been married for over three decades, so I will take that as a good sign for our Eric and his beautiful bride-to-be! 

    Alice and Eric met in London and they decided to live in the states together. So, Eric moved back to West Chester and Alice moved here for the first time. This strong, courageous young lady left her friends and family and everything she knows to start a life as a wife and a career woman in Pennsylvania.

    I wanted to give her a bridal shower and since everyone she knows is back in England, I invited Mark, Eric and my friends, our neighbors and members of our church. Alice fit right in as we played games and got to know each other better.

     

    On the left below is my dear friend, Heather. Heather is so creative and talented and she helped me immensely with the planning of the shower including the games we played and the "stations" we visited. I couldn't have done it without Heather. 

    The first "station" the guests visited was in the kitchen. We asked our friends to each bring a recipe to share an one ingredients from that recipe. Heather later took the recipe cards and put together a cookbook for Alice and the ingredients will go in their apartment to helps start the newlyweds off.

    "Station" #2 was Jenga! The guests wrote a piece of marital advice on each block and the "kids" will read them later when they play with their friends on game night! How fun and clever is that?!

    Our friends were asked to highlight their favorite bible verse at "Station" #3 in Alice and Eric's couple's version. Heather put the finishing touch on the table by framing their engagement photo. My heart!

    Then we played a game .... thank you, Heather. It was called the "pocketbook game. It was played similar to the old TV show, "Let's Make A Deal" where we got points for certain objects we had in our pocketbooks. The more obscure the item, the more points we got. It was a lot of fun.

    Then everyone went around the room introduced themselves and shared how they knew either and/or Eric, Mark or me. Then, dear, sweet Alice shared her story. She spoke lovingly about her parents and talked about previous jobs she held and the career path she is hoping for here in the states. 

    Alice then beamed and told everyone how she met Eric at bible study. She loves the Lord, but confessed she was also looking for "cute boys". When Eric introduced himself to her that night and they locked eyes, she knew she met the right "cute boy". She even told her friends, "I met a cute American boy!"

    And what celebration would be complete without food? We enjoyed chicken salad pinwheels, finger sandwiches, fruit, vegetables, dips and desserts. We also drank "Blushing Bride Punch"! Clever AND delicious!

    The "boys" came later and joined in fun conversation and laughter. They also helped us clean up. It actually went pretty quickly, as everyone chipped in. 

     

    Goodie bags for all. 

    And the happy couple here. 

    Eric, your father and I couldn't be happier with the woman that God placed in your life. I so admire the respect you and Alice have for one another and the way you both smiled when you shared your love story with everyone melted my heart. I love you and wish you a lifetime full of love, respect, good health, laughter and Jenga!

    Counting our blessings, 

    Mary Beth Roe

    Hi Everyone!

    Happy almost spring! I hope that you are de-thawing and making fun plans for the warmer days ahead.

    I have some exciting news —I’m celebrating my 18th Anniversary at QVC! I cannot believe that it’s been eighteen years since I’ve been coming to the Q. I still remember all the times that Ron and I would drive up the New Jersey turnpike and head to West Chester. It’s flown by, but you know what they say — time flies when you’re having fun!

    One of the best new additions to QVC has been our new on-air guest, Stacey. She has a great way about her and she adds a fresh perspective to the show. She connects with all of you – thanks for your warm welcome to her! I’m happy that you’ll be getting some time with Stacey as you watch the overnight shows. Between Stacey and Beth, I’m lucky to work with such great people.

    {Stacey & Beth}

    I’ve been very busy down here in Palm Beach and my days have been filled with work and lots of meetings. After an especially long day, I love to get dinner at the Palm Beach Grill with Ron and then, we treat ourselves to froyo. I usually get the chocolate and he gets the swirl!

    I can’t wait to come up for my shows, but I will admit – it’s hard to leave Florida. Palm Beach has a positive, happy energy and I also love to spend time in Miami, especially in the Design District. I really love the home stores here and I especially love looking at the patterns, fabrics and materials used in the furniture.

    I’ve had such great inspiration down here, I’ve been getting to galleries and sketching non-stop.

    This month’s TSV, my Gemstone Romance Bangle is a fantastic addition to your collection. We’re also launching a continuity program and if you decide to opt in, you’ll get all three bracelets.

    I love this because I think getting surprises in the mail is the best and most fun way to give yourself a treat!  I always enjoy when I forget that I’ve ordered something and then go to the mailbox and find a surprise.

    I’ve designed these bracelets with many of my favorite gemstones — Amethyst, Garnet, Blue Topaz and Peridot.

    Amethyst and Garnet 

    Peridot and Blue Topaz 

    If you want to give your wrist the full Ripka treatment, this is the bracelet for you!

    Peridot, Diamonique and Blue Topaz

    The Blue Topaz reminds me of the London Blue Topaz stones that I saw when I visited the Smithsonian in London. It’s a rare cut and it looks great in a bangle. I love to layer and these bangles make it so easy. They look great paired with each other, but also look nice next to a silver watch or thicker Ripka cuff.

    I can’t wait to see you soon and I’m excited for you to get to spend more time with Stacey. Mark your calendars for Thursday, March 12 from 12AM – 2AM, 3AM – 6AM, 10AM – 12PM, 2PM – 3PM, and 4PM – 7PM.

    With love,

    Judith

    Hi Everyone!

    This has been a hectic last few weeks. I showed my Dennis Basso Fall/Winter 2015 collection during Mercedes-Benz Fashion week at Lincoln Center to close to 1,200 people. Editors of all the major fashion magazines were in attendance including Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Elle and Town & Country to name a few.

    Celebrities such as Mary J  Blige, Brooke Shields, Coco Rocha and Olivia Palermo were all in the front row. It's always a thrill to see your designs go down the runway and at the same time a relief to know your done. I was blessed and received so many wonderful reviews praising the collect, which always makes you feel great.

    If you would like to view the Runway Show, click here --> Dennis Basso Fall 2015 Runway Show.

    Also, Fox News did a wonderful interview from my design studio and live right from the show.  To see this Interview, click here --> Fox News Interview

    As you know I always take inspiration from my runway show and interpret it for my loyal QVC clients. Actually, my Today's Special Value that's coming up on Friday, March 13th was taken from a beautiful jacket from my couture collection. Light and soft in wonderful spring colors (black, khaki, grapefruit, porcelain blue and lavender).  This darling jacket will take you so many places and is extremely figure flattering, chic and elegant with a sporty flair.

    I hope you'll be able to join me for all or some of my shows that day. Before you know it, Spring will be here and you should be ready with your new 'Basso' jacket. I look forward to you joining me!

  • Good friends are such a gift…They're like the extra family we get to choose!

     

    Do you have a friend that has always been there for you? One who has rooted for you, laughed with you, listened when you needed to vent…and journeyed through the best and most challenging parts of life right along with you?

    Invite your best friends over and join Jayne for some friendly fun during Fashionably Late, this Friday night at 10pm ET. I'll be away on vacation (lucky me!!!), so Jayne will be flying solo. Show her some love!

     

    And don't miss a special item you can preview later today on my Facebook page. We're calling it your Mid-Week Sneak Peek. :) #MWSP

  • 03/10/15--12:45: Alice's Bridal Shower
  • Meet Alice. Alice is the latest member to join the Roe family. She and our son, Eric will be married next month in London where they met in church. And what a coincidence that Mark and I also met in church?!

    Alice and Eric were engaged in October and will be married in April and Mark and I were engaged in the month of October and were married in April. Mark and I have been married for over three decades, so I will take that as a good sign for our Eric and his beautiful bride-to-be! 

    Alice and Eric met in London and they decided to live in the states together. So, Eric moved back to West Chester and Alice will move here after the wedding. This strong, courageous young lady will leave her friends and family and everything she knows to start a new life as a wife and a career woman in Pennsylvania.

    I wanted to give her a bridal shower and since she was here visiting for a couple of weeks and everyone she knows is back in England, I invited our friends, our neighbors and members of our church. Alice fit right in as we played games and got to know each other better.

     

    On the left below is my dear friend, Heather. Heather is so creative and talented and she helped me immensely with the planning of the shower including the games we played and the "stations" we visited. I couldn't have done it without Heather. 

    The first "station" the guests visited was in the kitchen. We asked our friends to each bring a recipe to share an one ingredients from that recipe.

    And what kind of celebration would it be without food? We enjoyed chicken salad pinwheels, finger sandwiches, fruit, vegetables, dips and desserts. We also drank "Blushing Bride Punch" and tea just like an English Garden Tea Party.

    But don't get the wrong impression and think I am that talented; I cannot take credit for the lovely spread. My friend, Diane, from church catered the shower. I was impressed and grateful for all of her hard work. Everyone raved about the food, not only was it pretty, but delicious too.

    The "boys" came later and joined in fun conversation and laughter. They also helped us clean up. It actually went pretty quickly, as everyone chipped in. 

     

    Goodie bags for all. 

    And the happy couple here. 

    Eric, your father and I couldn't be any happier with the woman that God placed in your life. I so admire the respect you and Alice have for one another and the way you both smiled when you shared your love story with everyone. There's no doubt in our minds God orchestrated it!

    We love you both and wish you a lifetime full of love, faith, respect, good health, laughter and Jenga (and maybe a few grandchildren a little later on!)

    Counting our blessings, 

    Mary Beth Roe

  • 03/11/15--10:29: Got Time?!
  • Hey PM-Stylers,

    Every Sunday (that's my goal) I will be blogging here, sometimes about fashion, sometimes about life, sometimes it will be what I call, the Seinfeld blog, aka, the blog about nothing (Remember how Jerry used to say the show was a show about nothing?) This week it strikes me that one week ago today we set our clocks forward. <<Pause – Collective Groan>> So I find myself contemplating time.

    First, I collect clocks. Big ones. Bitsy ones. It’s rather ironic since I’m late to everything. The funniest thing about my clock collection is that they don’t actually tell time. Between batteries burning out, and adjusting to the daylight savings thing twice a year, it’s too tedious when you own so many clocks, to stay up on keeping them all functioning, so actually, I’ve given up. They are just for show now, not a single one accurately tells time. So in the presence of so many clocks, no one in my house actually knows what time it is, unless a cell phone or cable box are in reach. (Sidebar: I am a huge Anglophile and once watched a PBS documentary on the Royal Clock keeper in England. One man, whose sole job it is to walk around Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace, keeping time. Hundreds of clocks perhaps thousands, I forget. Daunting. Cool. I digress) 

    As I’ve pondered the concept of time this past week, particularly as we have asked you to adjust to a new time for PM Style which is a bit later than before, 10pET, I’ve had some bigger thoughts on the matter. First, timing is everything. Don’t you hate that saying, even though it’s so true? Because really it’s just a kind of band aid to soothe your soul when something you are desperate for isn’t happening quick enough, and you feel like it never will. That has been my pining my whole life, particularly in my career.


    That's me in 1997. I worked for CBS News. I was an Assistant on the Foreign News desk. 

     

    This is bck when I used to work at CBS news in NYC. Best job ever (even tho I was broke) and my mom was so proud of me.

     

    This was me back in 2003. I was a Morning Anchor for WKMG-CBS in Orlando.

    I’ve always thought I was ready for something, long before I was, and wanted something, that it turns out, in time, I realized, I either didn’t really want, or really shouldn’t have had. God is one smart cookie. Impatience is a horrendous thing, and I own the patent on it. : ) 

    I’m also reminded that time is a tricky thing. The more you worry about not having enough, the more you waste by worrying you don’t have enough. And yes, certain things in life do come with expiration dates, and that I’m finding as I hit the mid-life point, is a very hard, oft painful concept to accept because it means some dreams do pass you by. (I’ve always wondered why God puts dreams in your heart that he doesn’t plan to fulfill. I realize He has a plan, I’m just saying.... and wondering)

    Then there are the little-er matters regarding time. Why am I always late? Why do I never have enough time to work out or read or paint the way I used to, when in reality, people far busier and more important than me, seem to be able to find, the time? (Priorities. I realize that’s the answer, just go with me here.)

    My paintings

    Why is it the time leading up to Christmas is always somehow more fun than the 24 hours of the day? It flies by and then is abruptly over! Why don’t Arizona or Hawaii set their clocks forward like the rest of us do? (I read this fun fact about daylight savings time and found it odd. Imagine it has to do with the time meridians or something. GMT, could it be?) Why do bad times make time feel longer, and good times feel like time flies by quicker? When in reality, the same clock is measuring both? And finally, to bring this all back to PMS, does it make anyone giggle that we all love watches more than ever, and yet I doubt any of us use ours to actually tell time? (PS: Wasn’t last week’s IML! OTO the new crystal ceramic watch, so fresh and lovely? Like a throwback to ladylike days. Like something Mary would wear on Downton Abbey)

    As my parents get ready to leave after spending some time with me, I find myself getting sentimental about time. I will cherish the memories of this time together, even the cantankerous ones, because really never again at this age of ours, will we ever spend so much time together as we have these past few months. That begins to scare me a bit, make me teary. So this is a good place to stop this thought. ;) 

    I think the longer I ponder time, the more it makes me sentimental, and also nostalgic, and also excited. Time is the keeper of some amazing treasures, not just in the past, but on the horizon, things you can’t fathom but are headed your way. How glorious. As I think about this time in my life and career, I am grateful. On our new Monday nights together, I am most hopeful that you are enjoying your time with me, us, the new PMS girls, the new set, the new everything. (PS: I promise I will not get this deep every week in our blogs, otherwise you may need therapy, wine, both, or just a Disney movie, to recover. ;)

    Let's stay connected on Facebook and Instagram!

    Shawn
