Kohree Real Wax Flameless LED Candles with Full Function Remote Control

I have reviewed a number of flameless candles recently, some that I loved, some I wanted to, and some that fell just short. The Last pillar candles I reviewed from Ohuhu fell just short, but based on my experience with Kohree products, I had much higher hopes. And for the most part, these Kohree Reaal Wax Flameless Pillar Candles with Remote Control are my new favorite flameless pillar candles ever.

To start, they are covered in real wax, so you should probably not put them on a hot surface or in bright sunlight for extended periods of time. You have a choice between a “constant on” feature, and a slow “flicker” effect from all three. You can even control the bightness! Low for a more relaxed setting and high to really brighten up a corner or accent table. Powered by 3 AAA batteries (sadly, not included. Insert sad face here!) each, they will run for quite some time before needing to be replaced (or, if your clever, recharged!). And because it’s a flameless candle, there’s no mess, no smoke, no hot melted wax to be worried about. And it’s always the perfect height and size, it’ll never melt smaller or irregular. The included remote is full-function, so you can adjust the brightness, the setting, and even the pre-designated timers of 4 and 8 hours! And the best part about them is they look just like the real deal. The last pillar candles I tried from Ohuhu would change colors, but the one color lacking was a true, actual “flame” color! So you immediately knew there was something off. With these Kohree Flameless Wax Candles, they 100% look and act like the real deal! They make for a great centerpiece to your holiday table, to any possible holiday decorating you could have in mind! And because they’re LED lights, they’ll last for years and years, and never need more than fresh batteries and quick wipe and they’re ready for the next season!

I really liked these Kohree Flameless Wax candles, and at just $16.99 for the set of 3, you could spend a lot more and get a lot less! The look and feel of a real candle, the convenience of a full function remote, and the low price, you can’t go wrong with these Real Wax Flameless Candles from Kohree!

Wizzhome’s Creative Scents “Schonwerk” Decorative Bowl

 

It’s not often I’m forced to do reviews in a rush, but unfortunately this item came damaged and the deadline for my post arrived the morning after the item did. And, sadly, that seems to be the norm with Wizzhome, so while their items are usually quality, they’re packaging and shipping is for the birds. But, as for this bowl, it’s a gorgeous little knick-knack that works well with my, and really any, decor. Let’s dive right in.

DSC_0581

To start, it’s a heavy cast resin painted a deep, rich walnut color and brushed with a wood grain. I know it’s resin because the first one they delivered had one of his little feet broken clean off. Thankfully, Wizzhome replaced it, and all the little knicks and dings I’d thought were representative of poor workmanship seemed to be the result of the loose foot rattling around in the box. The Interior of the bowl has a golden/brassy crackled glass inset into the resin, and it rests flush so as to not leave any sharp edges protruding. The result is a brilliant beautiful sparkle, and due to the nature of the piece, no two will be alike. I also know this because I had two to compare. Sadly, the one with the broken foot had to be disposed of, but even in the bin, it looked fabulous. And the part I loved the most is the non-skid, non-marring pads on each foot. So often I buy something that has none and will slide around of whatever surface I choose for it and mark the dickens out of it, or I’ll have to buy some little protective pads. They were blissfully included with Wizzhome’s Schonwerk Bowl.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that I have ordered products from Wizzhome several times and have yet to get one without damage. Whether it’s from shipping or poor packaging, it’s always heartbreaking because the products from Wizzhome are top shelf. And, thankfully, they’ve always been quick to send a replacement, making the process painless. But it’s still something I think needed to be addressed. Whether you treat it as a bowl, or a holder for other decorative pieces, or just an object unto itself, it’s a sight to behold, and works with holiday decor, or really, year round. It’s a little pricey at $32.25, and I’m not sure I’d pay for a small-sh 10″ x 5.5″ x 3.5″ decorative accent, but value is in the eye of the beholder, and this Creative Scents Schonwerk Bowl is truly a sight to see.

Celebright: Premium Flameless LED lighted tea Candles #Review #FlamelessCandles

IMAG2627 I usually purchased my tealight candles in bulk and a box or several bags lasted me for years. Five years passed and I took for granted always having that surplus of candles and then came having to shop for them. I never thought I would be shorted on candle wax! My older tealights are literally half thicker and last three times as long than the wafer thin candles I found today. I started pricing and noticed that most places charged premium prices for anything close to what I had, so I started thinking about use and placement. IMAG2625 Candles have never been a danger in my home and I am thankful that I remember to blow them out, never leave a room with a candle lit and make sure to never place a candle holder under a vent that if the candle were to be lit and the central air kicks in, it could cause a flame to blow more towards one side and ruin the holder itself or worse. This means I’m limited. Yes, I love scents but I have candle holders that are just too pretty to burn a candle in them. I don’t want black marks over time to build and ruin the glazes/finishes, so I started looked for options. IMAG2628 In my hunt, I reached out to Celebright and they were kind enough to send me a box of 24 LED lit and candles. Talk about having enough candles to light up any room for any occasion or just because. The candles come with batteries and these are not one-time use either, you can simply change the batteries (type CR2032) and continue to enjoy the tealights. No heat, no limitations, no worrying about leaving and did I blow that candle out and it you have children or pets, no worries if they come too close for comfort. I sort of like this worry-free living! Everything is great but looks also matter and these mimic a flame with a nice small flickering. They all flicker differently so you don’t have a sequence doing the same flame moment at the same time, just a nice mellow light that is somewhat relaxing. When you are done, you simple flip them over and they even have a switch to control them on or off, so no need to mess with screws or hard tops to pop off. IMAG2626 Retail Price Point: $19.95 for a set of 24 tealights with batteries included and already installed. That is less than a $1 a piece!  Candles also come with a Lifetime Guarantee.

Jiva Organics: Organic Mishri/Misri, Rock Sugar #JivaOrganics

IMAG1753

With the Fall weather in full motion and soon Winter will be upon us, I wanted to try different teas this season to try to change things up a bit. I feel new warm drinks doesn’t make every holiday feel the same, so I do try to always incorporate new products into the rotation. I figured if I was trying new warm drinks, I might as well try new sugars!

IMAG1750

I began reading and one of the types of sugars I came across is commonly used in India, is Misri. The sugar crystals resemble the shape of rock sugar/candy. As I read further like with salt, sugar has it’s differences too and it goes beyond the grades of brown and dark sugars. Misri, is not like refined sugars so you do get minerals, which help keep a more natural taste profile to whatever dish you add it to. Since the size of the crystals are larger in size, the dissolving occurs at a slower rate, so you can get that “sugar fix” with very little product. I like making sugar sticks and slowly dissolving them into teas and coffees. You can combine Misri with flavored syrups, extracts, and/or even natural food coloring to enhance your tea drinking experience. I use bamboo sticks and make little lolly pops that are not only beautiful to look at but can be used. Great for holiday gift giving along with baked goods and a bag of coffee or tea assortment. The lolly pops are also great if you have a sore throat and you don’t desire a candy full of unnatural ingredients, so you get many uses out of a simple but better for you product.

Pure joy!  Did I mention the best part?  You get an entire hazelnut to yourself.  No skimping here and I feel loved!
