Mighty Bright Book Light Rechargeable

Recent reads I couldn’t put down day or night, which made excellent use out of my mighty bright light. The mighty bright is the perfect portable usb charging night light. It is an essential for my late night and early morning reading sessions when I don’t want to wake up anyone else in this sleeping house. This little light comes in handy all the time for so many other things especially when I tip toe around this house or when traveling. A hard press on the on/off switch acts as a dimmer too. The USB charging is brilliant. This is my must have with me at all times at home and away.

Apparis Shirley Faux Fur Throw
The weighted faux fur is big enough for two people and at least five of us are always clamoring to use it. We carry this faux fur from floor to floor in our house whenever we want to be the ultimate in cozy.

As for an entire house must have. All six of us cannot sleep without our silk pillow cases. When it comes to a good nights sleep even our six year old knows that this Mulberry-silk pillow case is an essential. Added benefits for mom: anti-aging and bed head.

The only coffee machine I’m willing to look at daily and not feel the need to put it away. The daily cuppa is delicious and steamy hot thanks to an extra hot setting. No Starbucks stops needed when you have this in your kitchen.
See above for the perfect pairing. And see you later endless drive thru lines.
