Get Rid of Hotel Smell with This Little Candle

elsewhere light up your travel everywhere candle
There are just a handful of days left to grab a unique item that will provide a little homey comfort in your hotel room—a limited edition travel candle.

Creators Jasen and Allison Bowes love collecting unique décor and useful objects during their travels, but what they discovered led them to create their own company. They learned that every object has a unique story and that friends and family often told them, “I would have paid you to bring one of those back for me.”

They put their heads together and conceived Elsewhere—a business that offers limited runs of unique items. Right now, if you head over to their website, you’ll find a travel candle they produced in collaboration with Norden and Hajime Imura.

They contracted Imura, a ceramic artist in Japan to create reusable sake vessels and then Norden pours the soy candle inside. The candle arrives packaged in a 50mm camera lens bag made out of vintage Japanese Boro fabric and leather. Only 80 candles have been produced. The price is $100.

“I met the ceramics maker in Japan,” said Jasen. “He’s retired and pouring himself in the art.”

Once the candle burns down, the cup can be reused.

They tell the story of each item on their website and release a new object for sale every 60 to 75 days. They find vintage and new items as they travel and work with artists to produce limited edition products for Elsewhere. “We build an object on the road when, where, and how we travel. It’s part of the inspiration we get from the place,” said Jasen.

Allison runs and owns a fashion showroom on the west coast, and Jasen’s background involves consulting with brands to help on sales and marketing strategy. He last worked for Levi’s.

“We’ve worked alongside designers for the past 20 years,” he said. “We knew how to put things in the market that people will like.”

Can You Get a Free Disney Plus Account in 2022?
what is disney plus watch party remote control feature image

Disney Plus is one of the absolute best streaming services and well worth the money. So, if you're wondering if you can get a free Disney Plus account, read on while we tell you what you need to know.
Can You Get a Free Disney Plus Account?
Okay, so there isn't a free Disney Plus account option. While some services may offer a free ad-supported plan with limited features, Disney Plus offers just the one plan -- $8 per month or $80 per year for all the Disney Plus you can watch. It's tremendous value but if you don't want or can't afford to pay then you're going to miss out on a free Disney Plus account. There isn't even a Disney Plus free trial anymore as Disney stopped those in 2021 after a hugely successful launch period.

However, there are some alternatives if you really don't want to pay, or at least pay extra for Disney Plus. At times, some other companies you may interact with offer free ways to watch Disney Plus. For instance, in November 2021, Amazon was offering a free six-month subscription to Disney Plus if you signed up to its Music Unlimited service. While that meant Disney Plus wasn't entirely free, you could enjoy Disney Plus on top of an Amazon Music Unlimited subscription. Ideal if you're looking to expand your streaming horizons for less. That offer has now ended but there are other options out there if you look around.
