I’ve heard the average worker carries at least three mobile devices. Even if you don’t actually have them all with you at once, it seems on average people own at least three devices (cell phone, tablet, and laptop). That means we all have to have some way to charge and connect those devices and therefore we are constantly dealing with wires and cables.
When I made over our home office, I made sure to buy special wire clips to keep all the wires organized and streamlined. But our wire situation wasn’t just confined to the office. I charge my cell phone, and sometimes my laptop, at night so the devices are plugged in at the outlet right next to my night table. I often had to root around on the floor for the end of the cable to plug in my phone. So, I was excited to try out the MOS. MOS stands for magnetic organization system and it’s an organizer which keeps cables neat on your surface, instead of in a mess on the floor, by using magnets.
The organizer is basically a magnetic triangular shaped device that comes in three finishes: white, black (heavy duty plastic), or aluminum. Each finish is scratch resistant and the bottom of the organizer has non-sticky micro suction tape to hold it firmly to your surface. It also comes with a round 3M double-sided adhesive in the middle so you can mount it to the wall and run your wires vertically.
I usually charge my tablet in the living room so I also used it there. My organizer came with 3 blue rubber magnetic cable ties and I used those for the cables that did not magnetically stick to the organizer. You wrap the cable tie around the cable and the magnet in the tie connects with the magnet in the base.
It’s a clever and sleek way to corral the cables and not have to worry about rooting around for them behind furniture or on the floor. And since it’s a magnet it can be used for other things as well. I like the idea of mounting it to the wall and using it as a spot for your keys!

First of all, I love the word ‘gilt’. It just immediately makes me think of shimmer, shine, and luxury. So, I was actually really excited to check out a new company, Gilt Candles.
Gilt Candles are made from a blend of soy and beeswax. Soy wax is a renewable resource, biodegradeable, burns cleaner and is nontoxic and non hazardous. Soy wax can also be easily washed away with warm water and soap. When beeswax is burned it emits negative ions in the air which helps rid the air of pollen, dust, mold and other pollutants. Beeswax also doesn’t produce smoke when burned and burns much slower than other waxes.
One of my favorite candle scents is Capri Blue’s Volcano, and I love citrus scents in general so I chose the Lemondrop Martini candle from Gilt Candles. It’s not too sweet and it’s very citrus-y. The scent is pleasant and truly does create a relaxing feel. I enjoyed winding down with it.
But here’s the exciting part, in addition to enjoying aromatherapy provided by the candle, Gilt Candles feature an added surprise! Every Gilt Candle has a REAL ring embedded inside. The values of the rings are $15, $250, $1,000 or $5000. As the wax melted, I actually got really excited for the ring to be revealed. It took about two hours to start seeing a little bit of red coloring in the yellow wax.
That red coloring turned out to be a type of metal foil.
Inside the metal foil, was a small plastic bag with the ring inside!
There are instructions on both the website and the candle jar itself to validate your ring. I followed the directions and inputted the code from the tag on my ring on the site, but received the message “Your ring was not found. Try entering the serial number again.” I haven’t been able to confirm the value of my ring yet, but I’ve sent in an email about the issue. Regardless, I love the candle! I’ve burned it for about 4 hours and it seems like only about 5% of the wax has melted. (The site says that one jar will burn for over 130 hours!)
With the added surprise inside, these candles make a great gift of hope. Design OCD readers will receive 20% off any purchase with the coupon code ‘designocd20‘. Enjoy!
