I'm just gonna say it, I've been with QVC since the beginning of time. I once left work on a lunch break to come home, watch a show and order a piece of jewelry. Of course this was before the internet was an ordinary thing and when my job was temporary and I could schedule this. Oh, and I lived like five minutes from work.
My Mom however, is a true addict. It started, interestingly enough, when she had her mastectomy and was at home. She spent the better part of that year doing chemo treatments every 3 weeks. She couldn't leave the house, other than work, so that she didn't get sick. She watched a lot of TV. And shopped. On QVC. I think most of what we got for Christmas that year was from QVC.
I've had periods where I watch a lot of it and order a fair number of things. I did it when Bare Escentuals was new and I couldn't get it in stores. I LOVED the scents they used to produce and wore the perfume for about 10 years. I bought some clothes when plus sizes were hard to find and when they were the same price as regular sizes and looked the same. I bought jewelry with my aquamarine birthstone when it was hard to find around here (although it still is).
So since I've had surgery, I've bought a initial necklace, some Tarte BB Cream and Philosophy Total Mattness Duo. The BB cream and the mattness duo I could have bought in stores near me. But I got the brush with the cream and thought it was a good deal. The mattness duo I did check out in stores. It's $45 for just the primer and another $25 for the cleanser. So that is a great deal and it's on auto delivery to keep shipping for a maximum of 2 years.
But I've also found myself checking out clothes. And I get all set to order things and then I remember: 1. I no longer have to go to work every day so I don't need lots of work clothes. 2. I have NO IDEA what my body will look like in 30 days, 60 days or this winter. Two valid reasons why I need to refrain from buying clothes right now.
So, all this to say that I keep the drone of QVC on the TV when I'm reading and might steal a glance every once and a while. And I seem to be a walking/writing advertisement for QVC lately...
