Blimey - we can hardly believe that it's only three or four weeks until Christmas! We've been back in Toronto for four days and the time is spinning by so quickly that it's leaving us short of breath!
Anyway - after a great three week stint in Britain guesting on shows like OKTV! and Daybreak (to help promo' I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! we're finally back on Canadian soil and we've gotta say it's fab being home from home. It's a funny one, this dual existence; when we're in Glasgow we ache for Toronto and when we're in Toronto we ache for Glasgow. Guess that's a good complaint to have as we have many great friends and family on either side of the pond.
At the meoment we're also doing lots of press for www.candjhome.co.uk. Our candle company (set up in conjunction with Colette and Alan) is going from strength to strength. Sales have been confident and we're now shipping internationally - from Australia to Canada as well as mainland Europe. It's exciting stuff and we're proud to proclaim that all our candles are soy wax, essential oil and ALL hand made in Scorland. We've just added a host of ancillary candle products (such as snuffers etc) to our website and everything seems to be hitting the mark. Check us out on our sister website; www.candjhome.co.uk .
In other news we're off to Grand Cayman on Sunday for twelveglorious days. We haven't been before but we understand that it's absolutelyt wonderful. We'll report back soon with all the details.
Gotta keep this short for now as we're heading out early to a meeting and then to look at various finishing details for our bathrooms; we're working with our pal Cheryl T on the complete overhaul of two spaces using dreamy grey marble from Ciot and mock croc' Caesarstone. We'll post up the pics shortly!
Watch out for four weeks of Christmas home styling from us in The Toronto Star. We'll be showing you how to create the perfect fireplace this coming Saturday and next, and for the following two weeks we'll be all about last minute decorating using items which t you'll find around the home. Gorgeous stuff!
Cheers to everyone in the cyber world,
Loads of love,
Colin and Justin xx
