A great Breast Cancer Care event and lots of TSVs!


BCC 1Hi there,

How has your week been?

Mine has been wonderful! Last week was the annual Breast Cancer Care fundraising event and I was hosting the donation and auction centre with loads of celebs and special guests. The atmosphere was truly amazing!

Hope you like the pics, I think they really reflect what a magical night it was – we've raised at least £350,000 with more still coming in! I have also been inspired by Simon Biagi to do the Ribbon Ride next year. I ran the half marathon in 2011 for the charity so this can be my next challenge to work for.

This week is going to be exciting as it would seem I am king of the Today's Special Values!!

On Saturday night into Sunday I am launching the Yankee candle Christmas TSV with the newly wed Mrs Rosa Speyers, she is just back from honeymoon so we will have great fun! Here are some pics of the TSV: two decent sized gift boxed pressies or, like I am planning on doing, keep some for yourself, give a full box away and put some little ones into gift bags as little pressies!! The Whoopie Pie candle I'm holding is chocolatey and delicious – a new favourite me thinks!

Then on Sunday night into Monday I am launching the 1st anniversary of Cozee Home and a TSV to celebrate. It's a wonderful soft, cosy duvet set as you can imagine and the reversible polka dot design is so trendy so you can be warm, snuggly and fashionable. I am rather a warm sleeper so I haven't put it on my bed, instead it's in the guest bedroom as I have family staying this weekend who always say my flat is cold – this should keep them happy!!

Dyson Animal



Finally on Tuesday night into Wednesday I am launching the latest Dyson TSV – I teased you last week on Twitter with a partly revealed photo but I can now reveal that is it the Dyson DC59 Animal – cordless, powerful and light. I love it and can't wait to tell you all about it – I reckon hauling round a big vacuum will be a thing of the past if you get this.

Remember when I am launching the TSV you can either tune in at midnight or in the morning repeats to see me in action from 7am – 9am…

So, as you can see, quite a busy week and another coming up! How has your week been? Would love to know what you have been up to.

I would also LOVE to know YOUR 3 things for the week, here are mine:

Man and Man2HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK: this is an easy one – being part of Breast Cancer Care – hope you like the pics!

FAVOURITE PRODUCT OF THE WEEK: this is Man & Man2 from the wonderful Judith Williams, she gave me them as a birthday gift – I will do a little YouTube video about them for my next blog so you can find out more – they are gorgeous!!!


HAPPY THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: I love the colour of the leaves on the trees at the moment, oranges, reds & copper – isn't nature a wonderful, colourful thing!?

Much love,

Craig xx

    Hi Craig
    Oh my gosh. I can’t wait for the Yankee TSV. it looks FAB. I adore the votives, I got 4 of the birthday celebration ones. I truly, honestly intended to give 2 away as gifts, but in the end couldn’t do it! How selfish of me!!! I did the same last Xmas, when it was similar to this one, but in the book format, which I have to say, looked GORGEOUS. fully intended to gift 2 sets, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it lol. Oh well, hey ho! This year, I’m buying 4 sets, and they’re all for me. I won’t even try to pretend they’ll be gifted, because, THEY WONT,!!
    Looking forward to the Elemis TSV in November too, probably get 2 of them too, as usual. I mean, it would be rude not to. I know the value for money we get from QVC. I used to get my elemis from a posh store that has the initials H N, but could only limit myself to the basic cleanse tone and moisturise. Couldn’t believe my luck when I realised I could get it from QVC. My skin has never been better. Will have a big birthday next year that starts with a 5! Its such a compliment when people think I’m in my early 40s.
    I love how you always talk about your family, especially your lovely nieces. Family is everything Craig.
    Good wishes to you. Hope you have a show with the lovely Rosa, she comes across as such a lovely person, and your shows together always make me laugh.

    Hi Craig, thanks for replying to me on facebook , I’ve finally got down to just using the 1 elbow crutch ( since july) & swapping it from side to side depending on which knee/leg is worse that day coz just determined not to use two as to difficult for shopping etc – althou using one crutch puts your posture off so sore on an already dodgy back – what a whinger I am – not to worry cos I’ll be cured when I watch you bringing us the beautiful Yankee Candles ( a large slice of heaven!) – just rec’d my night glow set- 2 lrg Midnight Jasmine & 1 lrg Midsummer Night (AMAZING! ) I’M IN PARADISE! Currently burning a large Sweet Pea to cope with having lost summer! There’s a shop a few miles away that sell quite a few of the Yankee candles & I go there to check the scents of any I’m not familiar with but mostly I smell Every candle along 3 long shelves & come out headache free forgetting other pain & feeling happy & on top of the world- with the best intentions have only managed to give away 2 votive candles ( to my sis) can’t quite let them go-does that make me a bad person for not sharing them?-I di recommend them to EVERYONE! Hope you have a fabulous night with them ( & also with Cozee Homes) Give my love & congratulations to the lovely Rosa on her nuptules xxxx

    Hi Craig
    Enjoying your show with Rosa, Yankee candles. Congratulations Rosa. Doesn’t she look sooooooo happy, glowing.
    I had to order 4 sets of the Yankee TSV, it would’ve been rude not to!!! Absolutely definitely will give 2 away……………….I think, maybe, if I have to!!! Cannot wait for them to arrive. So many classic scents for Xmas, and the presentation boxes, gorgeous.
    I was burning my Autumn Celebrations large jar all day today, then had 3 of my chai latte tea lights in the evening alongside. So comforting and as the weather was so awful, I felt warm inside, ridiculous I know, but true nonetheless.
    I may have to go order anotherr TSV as I just remembered 2 people who would love them. Me, and em, me!!!
    Much love Craig

    Hi Una,
    Thank you so much for your lovely message and very sorry for the delay. Your message made me laugh so much as you sound very much like me! I too have got some Yankee Candles as gifts and then couldn’t part with them! My answer for this year… get 2!! lol.
    I’m so glad to hear you get to buy all your Elemis goodies now and sounds like its doing wonders for your skin!
    Good to hear you enjoyed the show with Rosa! They have some great xmas editions don’t they!

    Hi again Justin,
    Thanks for your message. Glad you enjoyed the BCC Evening. It was such a fantastic evening for such an important cause. So sorry to hear about the loved ones you have lost. It must be hard but try and stay strong for your mum.
    Have a great weekend and speak soon.

    Hi Sharon,
    Thanks so much for you lovely message. Good to hear you are managing on one crutch now, but can imagine it puts more pressure on your back, so try and take it easy :-). Glad the Yankee Candles cheer you up! Midnight Jasmine and Midsummer Night are amazing aren’t they!! I must say its very hard giving Yankee Candles away when they smell so great, but know they’ll be well appreciated as they make a fantastic present!
    Have a fab weekend and catch up soon.

    Hiya Craig
    Well, in the end, I was very good, I only went and ordered 5 sets of the Yankee TSV. !! Unfortunately, I’m still waiting to receive them. There appear to be delivery issues, so, I hope they arrive soon. Quite disappointing, especially as my friend who lives 2 streets from me, received hers last Wednesday. Not the end of the world, but I am so looking forward to seeing them.
    I’m keeping 3 sets and will split the other 2 sets into 4 gifts. I HAVE to now. I told the recipients what they were going to get. That’s the only way I could trust myself to actually hand them over LOL,!
    I really enjoy all the Yankee shows. Rosa is so down to earth and lovely, and Steven is also just as lovely. I LOVE his hair!
    Eagerly awaiting the Elemis TSV. SUCH great value and the new product looks very interesting, can’t wait lol.
    Have to dash to pick up the little one from nursery. Chaos will ensue!!
    Love Una xx
