A regular floor lamp does not add anything to your room. This LED Natural Willow Twig Lighted Branch can help you relieve your stress and anxiety when you feel exhausted after work. The willow twig branches are 100% natural wood material. The package comes with 16 warm white LED lights. There are 2 options to light up the lamp: USB plug-in power or 3 AA batteries. If you choose to use the USB plug-in power option, you may plug it into any USB charger such as USB wall charger, laptop’s charger or phone’s charger. If you choose to power the lamp with 3 AA batteries, you may enjoy the built-timer feature, which it turns on for 6 hours and turns off for 18 hours automatically. The overall height is 36 inches.

The window curtain lights include 138 LED fairy string lights that illuminate in all angles. These star curtain lights are waterproof. They can be used as indoor or outdoor decoration and can be used under any weather condition even raining. These 12 string lights create a warm and romantic atmosphere, which also helps with sleep. These curtain lights are also designed for wedding, dining room, shop windows, stages, ceilings and so on. They feature 2 different flash modes: constant light and flicker change. The charging options are similar to the floor lamp above: USB charging and a battery.

Glow in The Dark Stars Wall Stickers

I have been searching for lights that can sparkle up my bedroom for a long time. These stars wall stickers are exactly what I was looking for. They recreate a realistic starry sky. The white dots “disappear” in the day time because they merge with the wall. When I turn off the light at night, my room becomes a starry shiny bedroom, which is very magical and romantic. The set comes with 252 wall decals. No glue or tape is needed. You may simply peel and stick them to the wall or ceilings. They do not mark or damage the walls. The star lights help me fall asleep at night. These lights are wrapped in a lovely package, which makes them a perfect holiday gift.

What Comes To Mind? Is My Latest Quarantine Pastime

on

Earlier this quarantine, I promised to feature suggestions of games to play with the family while stuck in isolation. Last time, I reviewed Trivillennial. Though I promise that will not prove to be the last trivia game in the series, this week I’ll profile a game of a different type. It is called What Comes To Mind?

The well-known game “What Comes To Mind?” most closely resembles is Scattergories. Like Scattergories, the object of the game is to come up with a word or phrase when given a prompt. Unlike Scattergories, instead of aiming to conjure a unique answer, you are rewarded based off how many other players you match. Instead of testing your creativity, “What Comes To Mind?” examines how well you know your competitors. That twist makes things a bit more interesting. Furthermore, eliminates the tension that inevitably arises in Scattergories, when someone lobbies for the acceptability of their undoubtedly unique but hare-brained response.

The one problem I have with What Comes To Mind? is with the format of each question card. Each double-sided card features an image on the front and six questions or statements to be answered on the back. The sixth prompt is always “What comes to mind when you look at the image on the other side of this card?” It is a clever idea, but it fails in implementation. Almost always, everyone just names the contents of the picture: “Ferris wheel,” “butterfly,” “squirrel.” The only possibility for amusement is when a player completely misidentifies a commonplace thing and ends up, for example, writing down “parrot” when the photograph depicts a parakeet.

What Comes To Mind? comes with 75 cards, allowing for many nights of family fun. When our long national nightmare is over and done, it will presumably make for an entertaining party game as well.

It’s Time To Get An Instant Pot

At this point, everybody knows about the Instant Pot. After four or five years of it being the most popular product on Amazon Prime Day, plus the proliferation of dedicated social media fan groups and fawning media profiles, the Instant Pot has exceeded its cult status. We Know Products even featured an article about the Instant Pot a year ago. If you don’t own an Instant Pot by now, it is because you made a conscious decision.

However, it may be time to rethink that decision. With still no end in sight to mandated social distancing, we have to come up with ways to make life less mundane. That means trying out new things, especially when it comes to recipes. There’s no doubt you’ve tired by now of making your pre-quarantine staples. The Instant Pot affords you the opportunity to experiment.

The Instant Pot, famously, is seven kitchen appliances in one. It comes with the functions of a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté pan, yogurt maker and warmer. To some people, this might seem daunting. With so many options, how is one to know where to start? Now that we are in quarantine, it doesn’t matter as much. You have all the time in the world. If you fail, who cares? Just try another recipe the next day. There certainly is no shortage of Instant Pot recipes available.

The other day, we attempted our first foray into the wide world of Instant Pot by making beef and broccoli. It turned out great! I am already looking forward to the next quarantine creation.

Lew Investigates: How Much Difference Does A Toaster Make?

Are expensive toasters worth it? This is the question raised by Lew of Unbox Therapy after coming across the most expensive toaster on Amazon, a near-$400 model made by Mitsubishi (yes, that Mitsubishi — “Wake up and Toast”).

Can anyone justify paying that much for an appliance that, at the end of the day, does nothing more than make your bread a little browner? Lew and Willy Du conduct the ultimate test, comparing the Mitsubishi toaster with the cheapest version they could find, a $15 toaster made by Proctor Silex.

To make their experiment a little more robust, they tried both toasters out on two types of bread: a generic store brand bread as well as an expensive bakery-fresh bread.

Watch the video below to find out the results. Spoiler: The expensive toaster made superior bread. But for those not looking to splurge, you can increase the quality of your breakfast even with a cheap-o toaster just by buying better bread.
