Wake up and Smell the Coffee! (we couldn’t resist)

It’s Time To Get Into Holiday Mode!

Topaz waves crash against the shore as you lie, eyes closed on sand that really is as white as the pictures promised, and just as soft as the travel agent said! You inhale. What’s that smell? It’s familiar… ah yes, the smell of holidays. That warm, sweet smell you’ve come to associate with summer and sun lotion. It smells of coconut and smooth, velvety vanilla, yet it’s fresh too, floral in fact, the kind of smell that only somewhere as tropical and dreamlike as the Seychelles could produce.  You sink further into your bed of sand, much better than your bed at home. Way better, in fact. This really is the height of relaxation, of uncomplicated living, the high life! You inhale again… mmm… red fruits and ylang ylang. Surely it’s cocktail o’clock by now? You open your eyes, blow out your Escpaology Seychelles candle and walk from the living room to the kitchen – it’s got to be noon somewhere, right?
