    These days I live like a monk but I allow myself the Jasmine Vanilla collection from Bath and Body works. I love the smell and how it makes my skin feel.

    sorry to hear you feel that way...because I plan on doing it more often.
    You know, while you are working and I'm home, all alone :tongue:

    Expensive scented candles (not the cheap crap).
    Reading a good book in the bath.

    Baking and cooking.
    Writing some stupid hilarious stuff and some serious stuff on LPSG.org. :eek:
    Sleeping to "Coast-to-Coast AM with George Noory" every night.

    Decoupage. I am thinking that will be a big luxury. I am going to SAM'S CLUB and buy a 1.75L bottle of MOD PODGE and 50 foam brushes. :biggrin1: I just finished a cool double sided bulletin board project. You can prop the sucker up against your wall no nails to hang it up.

    Doing liquor infusions...buying bottles of vodka, rum, sake, tequila. Putting flavorful stuff in a liquor and letting them infuse their flavorful qualities...strain them and funnel them back into the original bottle for gifts and for personal use.

    A clean house. Free from dryer sheet perfumes, bleach, pine sol any chemical cleaner that makes me itch or stinks. lol

    Candles with temple incense in them, chamomile body lotion from CamoCare for the itchies, dead sea salt products from Ahava, Jiaogulan tea fresh brewed, reading out on the balcony and meditating there.

    Rico.. don't be cheap. He's worth it!
    Twice a month I go to the Hamam. It's really costs nothing, but the bubble massage on a heated slab of marble is ridiculous.

    White Marchesini wheels for my 1000RR. Ok that's not small...
    Miller & Harris soaps.
    Paul F├╝rst Mozartkugel pralines. My gf brings them from Salzburg.
    Hardcover books.
    My housekeeper.
