Favorite Things Friday #46

Hello! Happy Friday! This might be the quickest post I ever write, because honestly, I wasn’t even sure I’d get this done tonight (it’s Thursday night – far too late – and the bed is calling, but I have a a few things that I just LOVE, and one or two might really help you now, before we dive even further into December! So my apologies – the pictures stink, they are taken with my phone, but hey, do whatcha gotta do, right?

1. Philips Battery Operated Window Candles

Two words: LIFE. CHANGING.

Guys. Every single year, putting the candles in the window is SUCH an ordeal. Finding extension cords, taping the candles down because of the weight of the cord…it used to take forever. And then every night, going around the house to turn them on and then turn them off. But not anymore! I splurged on these guys (on sale now at Target for $3.99, lucky you!) and it was worth EVERY. SINGLE. PENNY. They are set on a timer to go on every day for six hours, then they turn off. And it took all of 2 minutes to walk around the house and stick them in the window. I can’t even put into words how thrilled I am that we went for these this year! The glow is nice too – I tried years ago with battery operated ones and they were so dull, you couldn’t even see them. These are awesome. Nice and weighty too, so they stay put.


2. Affresh Dishwashing Cleaning Tablets

I seriously thought something was up with my dishwasher this week – every morning, I’d start emptying the dishes and it was like the dishwasher wasn’t even run the night before?! I was worried. But I remember reading in a magazine over the summer about these tablets – they were really talking them up – so I tried them. Just had to drop a tablet in the bottom of the dishwasher, and run with detergent as usual. The next morning, I woke up to squeaky clean dishes! Woohoo! I am a HUGE fan.

3. Flickering Flameless Tealights

I have a ton of these $3 Target white houses around the house: (above the microwave here)

…and picked up some flameless tealights the other day to pop in the open back. Had no idea, but they flicker and look so great! Obviously I couldn’t capture the motion with a still photo, but trust me on this;). They’re also waxy so they feel like a real candle. They’re the most realistic flameless tealight candles I’ve seen.
