Introducing Jorge Pérez
OMG – 2017!!! I’m still trying to wrap my mind around Y2K and what ever happened to my hair? Thank goodness there are stopgaps like the changing of the year to make us take a moment to reflect. There is so much meaning and opportunity when we transition into a new year. I make sure to take this time to be grateful for all my many blessings of the past year. Then I chart a voyage of all the wonderful things I know I can accomplish this new year if I try hard enough, and without of course having to kill anyone LOL!
I’m also very fortunate to be the Spokesperson for Waterford Crystal…
…for which the changing of the year represents so many amazing and notable events, like the single largest global project that the Waterford Crystal company has ever undertaken since its 1783 Grand Opening, with the Official New Years Eve Times Square Ball and Event. Even more important than the event itself, is the message and wish that Waterford Crystal imparts to the world through the detailed cutwork pattern on the Crystal Times Square Ball itself. This year’s company theme and wish (which could not be any more appropriate), is for “The Gift of Kindness“.
Honoring the spirit of charity and compassion, all in the name of promoting understanding, and strengthening the bonds of humanity. What a great way to start 2017!
Then off to Tinsel Town for The People’s Choice Award (which if you didn’t already know, is made by Waterford Crystal). It’s soooo heavy!
The new year also represents the running of the brides! To the wedding gift registry, that is. Did you know that most engagements in the US happen between Thanksgiving and New Years Eve? Waterford and Wedgwood (sister company) always have the stores primed and ready for this rush. Our brands are always the top registered amongst brides and grooms (this includes brides & brides, and grooms & grooms).
The almighty dollar only comes in one color – the Pantone color of the year; Greenery. Did you know that only Waterford will never retire your Goblet, Wine or Champagne glass from their US catalog? My Hope Chest likes that!
OK; back to me. In addition to a new collection of Speciality Debutante/Prom & Quinceanera dresses to add to my wedding collection this year, 2017 will also represent a milestone in my career as I celebrate my 10th Anniversary on the EVINE Shopping Network (formerly ShopNBC). I’m very excited and will commemorate the event by introducing my private label collection of Waterford Exclusively on EVINE. Look forward to this event in August 2017, as well as many more surprises planned for EVINE this year.
On a final note as I whip up my last hair for the next red carpet event, I’d like to to take a moment to thank first and foremost Michelle at TVShoppingQueens.com (so many queens, so few countries), and all of her loyalist readers. A BIG thank you to the EVINE network, and of course to all of my Amazing Fans that I love and appreciate so much!!! You, and only you are the reason I keep coming back!
Some final words of wisdom for 2017:
- Donate! Doesn’t always mean $$$. Time is always appreciated.
- Be more kind to others (this includes friends & family)
- Do at least 1 unselfish thing every day (OK; at least try!)
- Just once this year, pay for someone’s meal in the drive through line behind you. In addition to being very kind, it makes you feel great too.
- Always end all important speeches with your Miss America wish for world peace!
Happy New Year!!! See you on TV!
