Objects With Purpose

Objects With PurposeMost everyone can appreciate the smell of a candle or the ambiance that they create, especially during the Fall of the year! However, what most people do not know is that most candles are toxic, that’s right, they are harmful to use. How then are you supposed to enjoy the benefits of a candle or give one as a gift and enjoy it with a clear conscience? The answer is simple, you need an alternative. Luckily, one business by the name of Objects With Purpose is working to make candles that you can enjoy in more ways than one and candles that are not harmful in the least!

How exactly is a candle from OWP different than a normal mass produced candle? For starters you can use them for more than just burning. You can use it as a candle (obviously), a body butter when they are warm, and a solid perfume when they are cool. Talk about a versatile product! Now onto what they are made of. Essential oils along with organic renewable coconut shea and apricot butters are what make up these candles that serve more than one purpose.

One very important for any candle though is how it smells. Don’t worry about the smell lacking because it doesn’t. In fact the scents are comparable to that of high end boutique candles and to be honest they smell even better than those. You can tell that thought was really put into these candles, from the scents to the uses of them. These aren’t just candles you burn once and throw away, these are the kind of thing that you want to give as a gift and perhaps get one or two for yourself while you’re at it. This holiday season don’t settle for a boring and harmful store bought candle, light something that will make memories and fill the air with cozy scents, then enjoy the other benefits that these candles offer. Do it all with a clear conscience knowing that you and your loved ones won’t be harmed by these candles.

Fancy Box

Fancy, the website that has been bringing us exceptionally amazing products and goods for quite some time has users in awe yet once more with their new subscription box! Anyone who has ever used the website knows how it works, but just in case you have somehow missed out and never used it before, here’s a quick rundown. HIgh quality and often high priced items are posted to the website and once you create an account you are able to click the button that says “fancy” on each item that you…well, fancy. You are then able to go back to these items later on or purchase the item. It’s a genius website that has claimed numerous hours of my time spent.

So what’s in the box? Good question, you’re going to love the answer! You know how a lot of subscription boxes send everyone the same thing each and every month? Fancy does not do that, you have the option to choose the category that you would like to be sent items from, for example: Men, Women, Home, Gadgets, Media. This is a cool twist on the subscription box idea because with such a vast catalogue like the website has, it would have been a shame not to diversify the items included in the boxes. The final and most important thing that we are sure you care the most about is getting the bang for your buck, right? Each month you only pay $30 and though that is on the higher end of some subscription boxes, you get $60+ worth of goods in your box every time.

The final verdict, get this box! We have yet to see a box that has such a vast selection of goods included in it, sends expensive and high quality items to you once a month, and does it for only $30.

Urban Cheesecraft

Urban Cheesecraft KitOne of the most uncommon things anymore is to make your own food from scratch at home. Chances are, you love the quality and freshness of homemade foods, but the tricky directions and lengthy procedures frighten you away. If I were to ask you if you have ever contemplated making your own cheese, you would probably say no because the idea of making cheese at home is unheard of to the average person! Urban Cheesecraft is changing all of that and making homemade cheese accessible to everyone!

You don’t have to be a cook or know how to make complicated dishes to be able to make cheese, literally anyone can do it with the Cheese Kits from Urban Cheesecraft. The Cheese Kits include everything that you need to make cheese except a gallon of milk. The only thing you will need other than the kit itself is a gallon of milk. One other important thing to note is these kits make multiple batches of cheese, so there is plenty of room to test out new flavors and methods of making cheese.

The instructions on the Mozarella and Ricotta DIY Cheese Kit say that it takes around an hour to make the cheese, in fact we think it might have even taken less time when we made cheese with the kit! Who would’ve thought that you could make fresh homemade cheese in about an hours time?

Urban Cheesecraft Kit CheeseThe instructions that come in the kits are super easy to follow, no complicated wording or tricky steps! They are written so that anyone can understand the directions and there are even helpful hints and tips that make making cheese at home even easier and more fun. Oh, and don’t fret if your cheese doesn’t turn out exactly like it’s supposed to the first time, there are even instructions for what to do if a step doesn’t turn out the way it should, you will still have something delicious and edible to enjoy for your efforts.

This is one of those companies and products that is literally as good as they sound. We wouldn’t call ourselves chefs, yet on the first attempt with the easy to follow instructions we made some fantastic Mozzarella cheese infused with cheese salt and parsly. Making tasty homemade cheese accessable was their goal, and to that we say “Mission Accomplished!”
