Flickr Pool Picks

A mid-winter series that we'll run until our own moods are well and truly altered. Previously, we went for laughs and listened to music. This week, spa treatments. We can't claim to have tried everything that follows but we can say that they seem to have most body parts covered. You're sure to leave any one of them feeling lighter, and that goes for your wallet.
