Colin & Justin | November 3, 2014 | Canada Style
A good bathroom, for us, is an utter necessity, both at home and on the road. This considered, what does yours say about you? Is it a tranquil, organized home spa, or a chaotic scene awash with soap scum, razor blades and squeezed out tubes of toothpaste?
