Oh, Facebook, our favorite friend. We can now spend the day hooked to the latest Twitter updates, instagrammear as true professionals or get lost among Pinterest boards. Does not matter.

When we get home after an exhausting day at work, there is nothing that can revitalize us more than a relaxing bath or shower.
