As the days get shorter and the temperatures drop, I find myself wanting to curl up on my couch with a warm blanket any time of the day. Since the cozy girly season (aka fall and winter) is really my time to shine and I’m lucky enough to have my own fireplace in my living room, I always feel like I’m living the best life when the colder months arrive .

Unfortunately, with the good fortune of having a fireplace comes the responsibility of cleaning that fireplace. And for me that’s a big one no. While building a backyard fire pit is one of my ultimate goals as a new homeowner, until I got to that place, I needed a good replacement to keep warm when temperatures aren’t too low, without the fireplace lit. or turn on the heating. On. The solution? A personal fireplace that is both functional and Stylish.

FLIKR’s XL Personal Concrete Fireplace has quickly become one of my favorite items in the home and for many good reasons. The sleek concrete design not only makes it a focal point in any room, it can be used both indoors and outdoors, making it easier to stay warm wherever you are. And the best part is, all you need is a bit of isopropyl alcohol (9 ounces to be exact) and a lighter to make it work.

When I first received the fireplace, I was of course a bit skeptical about how it works. However, to my surprise, it was easy to set up and burned for almost an hour – just as promised. To keep the party going I lit it a second time and while I didn’t let it burn for another full hour, when I was ready to put out the flame I simply placed the supplied aluminum extinguisher cover over it. Easy and safe – plus no clean up afterwards.

Of course I wouldn’t do that now fully replace my stove or fireplace with this personal option from FLIKR, but that’s exactly why: it’s a personal hearth. So if you want to warm up your whole space or keep your whole body warm, this isn’t what this is for. While the sharing kept me warm when I was close to it, I wouldn’t bet it would warm me from head to toe. But making a nice round (or two) of s’mores with the gang? Absolute.
