Boathouse Row and Lakeside Candles c/o Bath & Bodyworks

With enough rain lately to make it feel like Vancouver has gone back to early Spring instead of Summer, I find myself dreaming of warm weather vacays.  You know the kind, cozy cabin getaways, campfires, s’mores, and sunshine!  To keep my mood light while working away indoors wrapped in cozy knits, I add some mood lifters.  My first essential is some happy sunny tunes.  Any Songza playlist with the word “Summer” associated to it has been on repeat.  My second essential is some aroma therapy.  Bath & Bodyworks has come out with a fabulous Lakeside Summer Candle Collection.  These aroma’s aren’t to relax me, but to invigorate my mood and add some light to my day.

Check out all their amazing scents like Lakeside, Watermelon Lemonade, Boathouse Row, Strawberry Picnic, Summertime S’mores, Mahogany Teakwood

Cost: 14.5oz, $22.50; 4oz, $12.50: 1.3 oz. $4.50 (in select fragrances)
