Jewelry In Candles

I'm sure that most of us have heard of candles with jewelry hidden inside. They seem to be a pretty big deal lately. And personally I love the concept. Who doesn't want to get a special surprise and a home that smells great all at once?

Not too long ago I went through and looked at all the different companies, and there are a lot of them. I found that Jewelry In Candles was one of the best deals. Mainly because the candle size is either larger or equal to other companies (normally larger), and they have a great scent. When you go to buy they have an icon on each product that tells you the intensity of the scent. This is great because it allows you to buy less intense or more intense, depending how which you prefer.

The other great thing that I found about jewelry in candles is that you get to pick what type of jewelry you want (ring, necklace, or earrings), and then you get to pick which size ring, if you choose ring. I didn't find that any other company did it this way. I think its great because then I will actually get something that I can wear, not something thats either too small or too big. The candles burn for at least 150 hours, which means you are getting your money's worth.

So after trying them and loving them I decided that I was going to sign up to sell them, mainly because I love them, and it gives me a discount. The discount means that I get to save money on a product that I was going to buy anyways. Which is awesome.

I'm honestly impressed with this company, and with the product that they put out. They are a fairly new company (just over a year old), which means they have some growing to do. But they already have a great system, and a great product. I am really excited to see where this company goes, and am glad to be a part of it. I want to share these candles with everyone, because I know that they are worth every cent you spend on them. If I didn't believe in the product, and the values of the company, I wouldn't be able to endorse them. Luckily, I do believe in these. And I want everyone else to as well. :)

Interested? Leave me a comment, or send me an email so I can give you more information! You can also visit my website at any time to order your own candles, or wax tarts!

Walgreens VoxBox

Recently I received a VoxBox from Influenster. This to me is pretty exciting. I love getting mail. And I love free stuff. That makes a voxbox perfect! For those of you who don't know, a VoxBox is what calls the box of free goodies that they send out. Influenster is a review website where consumers (you and me!) can go an leave feedback on all the products that we use. Randomly they send out surveys that you take, which then allow you to receive voxboxes. In order to join you have to be invited (leave your email in the comments if you'd like an invite).

I've been part of influenster for 2 or 3 years now and have received some pretty cool boxes. I think the Mary Kay was my favorite. Anyways, back to my latest box. This box is called the Walgreens box, and inside there were two full sized products. When I was emailed that I was getting the box I didn't know which products I would be getting. Once I got the box I was excited because I got 2 products that I actually want to try, instead of one I can't use (there was a shampoo / conditioner for wavy hair, which my pixie cut doesn't need).


First I received Dove go fresh Revitalize Body Wash in mandarin and tiare flower scent. The smell is a little over powering when you first open the bottle. Its definitely orange. I don't know that I would pick this scent in the future just because its really strong when I'm showering with it. It doesn't seem to leave much of a smell after you rinse off, which is good. This body wash lathers extremely well, which is always a good thing for me. I love having a nice bubbly lather. I felt nice and clean after using this, which is always important for a body wash. 

It claims to be moisturizing, and it wash, but not as much as I had been hoping. I still felt dry afterwards. Of course this could just be because I have crazy dry skin. It did make me slightly less dry, but not to the point that I would buy the product for the moisturizing effects. Overall I like this body wash, and would most likely buy it in the future. 

The second product that I received was Vaseline Intensive Care Healing Serum, Advanced Relief. Now this I loved. Seriously its a great product. It leaves my skin feeling soft, and not dry at all. Best of all, it lasts. I can put it on after my shower and I'm done, good to go till the next shower. It doesn't have a strong odor, or really one at all. I like that there isn't a scent because I like to smell like my perfume, not all sorts of other things mixed in. I used this lotion on both of my kids and it left their skin soft as well. Also, a little bit of it went a long way, which means that one bottle will last me for a while. I know that I will be purchasing this in the future. Its a 5 out of 5 for me. Love it.

Overall I loved my Walgreen VoxBox from Influenster. I received 2 products for free, and liked both of them.

A.L. Kessler's No More Black Magic (Cover reveal!!!)

A. L. Kessler has given me the privilege of sharing the cover of her upcoming novel No More Black Magic. If you haven't read anything by her yet, I would suggest doing so. She has a wonderful paranormal romance series (Dark War Chronicles). Her new novel is the first in a new series (Here Witchy Witchy), and is going to be amazing. It's filled with humor, action, and super natural creatures. What could be better? 

Explosions, body parts, and black magic are all part of Abby Collins’ typical day. As the top Paranormal Investigation Bureau agent, she only gets the best cases, but when the Cult of Ra comes to play she might in be over her head. Finding a murderer while up against a hex, an overprotective coven, and a stubborn werewolf reminds her that nothing in the paranormal world is easy. As the death toll rises and a decades old crime, linked to Abby, is uncovered, disturbing information is brought to light. Abby must unlock an ancient language steeped in black magic to uncover the truth before the murderer comes for her.

Preorders are available now! You can find this book at the following places!

Barnes and Noble:
Also Available on iTunes 

Personally I can't wait for this novel, and will be back with a review once it releases!

Randoms Gummies!

Awhile ago a friend of mine told me to join Smiley360. I did, but didn't really understand it. I mean she told me that she was always receiving free samples to try out, and she was constantly posting pictures of the things she received. I thought that was pretty awesome, but I didn't seem to be receiving anything. At all. But I kept checking, and doing the things the website asked me too.

Then, one day I received a mission, and got a free sample of Randoms Gummies in the mail! I was extremely excited to have gotten something to try.

My box of awesome!

Normally these aren't the type of candy that I would buy. I usually prefer either sour, or chocolate, but they were free, and so I tried them. And they were pretty good. They taste like fruit snacks, which was nice. They aren't too sweet and they come in all sorts of different shapes. The shapes are actually really fun. Not your typical gummy candy. I let my 4 year old have a few of them as a treat and she was so excited about the shapes, and loved them. 

I also put them out at a party recently, but not many people seemed to eat them. I think that they are more geared towards younger people, not adults. Which is okay. They aren't too sweet, and for being a candy there is slightly fewer calories and less sugar, which is always a plus. 

I don't see myself going to the store specifically to purchase these, but I wouldn't turn them down. I can see my daughter picking them for a special treat occasionally. 

Overall, I would give these 4 out of 5 stars.
