Pick-Me-Ups and Comfort Products

It has not been a promising start to the week. Somehow I hurt my back over the weekend and this was followed by a chain of disconcerting events. It started me thinking about what I like to do when: I've strained my back; it is storming and hailing outside (seriously); work is stressing me out; the apartment looks like a bomb went off inside; and I have lost my positive outlook (or any combination of the above). The answer always is one thing; a long bath. I swear, it is a cure all. My favorite accessory for this is a Bath and Body Works Candle scented like Vanilla Coconut. It is amazing! The smell is lush and tropical, and the brown glass is casts a beautiful amber glow. I have given this candle to everyone as a gift, including my father-in-law who loved it!!

However, I went to the Bath and Body Works website to get the picture, and I can't find it anywhere. I have to believe it is just a web glitch and not that it is being discontinued. I plan to investigate, because if it is an "endangered" product, it is time to start buying them up and hording. It is that good!

The Vanilla Coconut candle looks very similar to this one.As far as pick-me-ups for when I get to work and I'm feeling exhausted, my favorite product is this.
I keep a travel-sized bottle on my desk, and it smells like sweet tea to me. So refreshing and energizing!
