Monday Cute: We Are All of Us This Unicorn Crying Bright, Waxy Tears of Sadness

"There are no happy endings because nothing ends."

I had many feelings upon running into these weepy rainbow-teared unicorn candle holders when a friend of mine shared them on Facebook, not the least of which being a strong desire to own a small army of them to place in and around my apartment for when I really want to set the mood. You know, the mood being “Mabel from Gravity Falls all grown up and wanting to slide into your DMs.”


There are tons of things to enjoy about this candleholder. If you’re curious what it looks like when the unicorn is actually crying wax, you can take a look at the wonderful GIF over on Creators, where they reviewed the product. Warning, though: it’s something you can never unsee.

As a bonus cure for your Monday blues, we’ve presented here, for your enjoyment, the rigorous selection process we go through every Friday to decide what we should run for Monday Cute.
