@JackpotCandles - a surprise jewelry jackpot in each candle! #Giveaway


Candles can be more than a light to accent your home d├ęcor; we believe that candles can offer an experience that does not stop after the flame has died. Their hand-poured candles are made with 100% natural soy that creates a lovely, long-lasting flame to fill your home with amazing scents. Using only the best environmentally friendly materials, Jackpot candles provide bold, distinctive fragrances that fit any mood and any budget. Whether you crave the aromas of fresh baked holiday cookies and pies or the fresh, clean scent of flowering gardens and mountain breezes, their wide range of products will transform your home into a welcoming space of comfort and relaxation.

 Jackpot Candles  are a family owned and operated jewelry candle manufacturer. They produce 100% soy candles in Buffalo, NY. The jewelry inside their  candles is valued at $15 - $5,000.  These jewelry pieces ensure that your candle experience lasts a lifetime.

I recently was sent the Vanilla Cupcake to review. This was my first Jackpot Candle, so I was super excited to see what jewelry was in the candle! It immediately filled the  house with  aromas of creamy butter and sweet sugar. This scented candle provides a fragrant backdrop for childhood memories of cookies, ice cream, and fun.

The combination of highly fragrant premium quality soy candles and an exciting and fun 'jewelry reveal' experience (what ring will you find?) is a double win for me! I never buy myself jewelry and usually get candles as a gift, so now on I am going to ask for Jackpot Candles. I love being able to discover a fun new piece of jewelry.  I love that you can pick  the jewelry style of your choice: earrings, necklace or ring!

After we unveiled my gorgeous new necklace, we went online to visit the appraisal page and entered the product code on the label for an instant appraisal.  It was valued at $24!

Jackpot Candles offer an experience of comfort with soft light and soothing fragrances and the jewelry hidden inside will add glamour and style to your look after the candle has finished burning. A perfect holiday treat, birthday gift, party favor, or treat for yourself!

One lucky reader (US only) will win the same candle that I reviewed!  Please wait for the Rafflecopter to load:

Girls' @NerdBlock Jr. - Fun filled Nerdy boxes for the little lady in your house!

Nerd Block is a Canadian-based mystery subscription box for ‘geeks’ and ‘nerds’ founded in 2013. They operate by sending each subscriber a box filled with toys, collectables, and a custom t-shirt every month! Since their launch in 2013 they have gained worldwide critical acclaim and a subscriber base in the tens of thousands.

Now they offer up Nerd Block Jr, which is just like the original Nerd Block subscription, only it's for children and contains age appropriate toys. You can choose from a Boy or Girl Nerd Block Jr.

This past month we got a Girl Nerd Block Jr. and it featured Frozen, Minions, Harry Potter and more! The mystery box featured fun and nerdy items that my daughter loved. Not only was opening the box a surprise, but she got to watch her brother open his up a few days earlier, so of course she eagerly couldn't wait to see what was in the boxes and plastic eggs! The box contained awesome Nerd Gear for ages 6-11!

Inside the box was a Hello Kitty  themed first aid kit,Olaf plush, two Harry Potter figurines, a Despicible Me Minion and a Shopkins. The Harry Potter characters were in the plastic eggs, so we had no clue what was to come until they were opened.  She was super excited at the ones she received, she just started reading the books, so they were a huge hit! We had not clue what a Shopkin was, but it was a cute little characters from your favorite shops! She got a soap one.

Here is a closer look at the Harry Potter and items in the box:
HOW MUCH IS NERD BLOCK?

The blocks range from 13.99 to 19.99 a month, plus shipping. You may start and stop your Nerd Block subscription anytime you like, meaning there's no commitment!

Nerd Block Jr. is the first subscription service of it’s kind dedicated specifically to junior nerds!  So if you are looking for a fun gift that keeps on giving, order a NERD BLOCK JR. for your little man.  Each month there is something different and each month he will be eagerly awaiting the postman!  This fun box is not only fun for the kids to play with, it is a great conversational piece and even the bigger Nerds in the house (hubby) was jealous and wanted in on the Nerd action.  Go ahead and get your Nerd on!

@HallmarkeCards opens up the vaults to create virtual greetings from decades past

DECADES OF HALLMARK ECARDS COME TO LIFE VIRTUALLY WITH THE LAUNCH OF ECARDS TIME MACHINE
Hallmark opens up the vaults to create virtual greetings from decades past
  
Hallmark Cards has cracked open its century-old archives. Hallmark eCards’ new web experience, called “Time Machine,” allows users to travel back in time and experience what Hallmark cards were like from the 1920s through today. Have you ever wondered what kind of greeting cards people sent in the 1950s? This new collection of eCards were inspired by actual Hallmark greeting cards sent from decades past. Users can choose their favorite decade and select an eCard that brings a greeting card from these eras to animated life.

The cards feature topics ranging from the expected (a dancing pair of platform shoes from a 1970’s birthday card) to the politically incorrect (a wife threatening her husband with a rolling pin – circa 1950) to the totally surprising (Santa mooning the recipient, in an unconventional 1940s holiday greeting).

They also offer a fascinating glimpse into the way Americans lived in decades past. Travel was more rare and therefore celebrated: cards abound for cruises (“Bon Voyage!”) and plane trips (“Happy Landings!”). Smoking was more common, if the “up in smoke” birthday card (1950s) is any indication.

“We are excited to open up a window into how America used to communicate, and how that’s evolved over time,” said Dan Kessler, general manager of Hallmark eCards. “These cards are certainly a unique send, but you could also spend hours browsing through them. I think everyone will be fascinated by this thoroughly fun trip through time.”

“There are over 100 years of brilliant craftsmanship and artwork that we’re to share with public digitally,” said Rob Fried, CEO of SpiritClips LLC, the Hallmark subsidiary responsible for eCards and the Feeln streaming service. “This is just the beginning.”

@LoveSpoonCandles add decadence and a wonderful scent to any room!


LoveSpoon Candles is a high quality, handmade soy candle company. Its name hails from the Welsh decoratively carved wooden spoon that was traditionally presented as the best wedding gift, ultimately symbolizing romantic intent. The spoon is normally decorated with symbols of love, and was intended to reflect the skill of the carver. Due to the intricate designs, LoveSpoons are no longer used as functioning spoons and are now decorative craft items that serve as wonderful housewarming gifts, wedding gifts, or gifts for women.

Additionally, Lovespoon Candles are 100% soy and have wood or eco-wicks which are made of cotton. Soy Candles are known to be clean burning without the release of chemicals like traditional paraffin waxes. At LoveSpoon Candles you can choose from the Cornerstone Collection that encompass their decorative tins with wood wicks that burn with a crackling sound. Or you can select our elegant colored glass jar with a cotton eco-wick from their Monogram Series.

I received Lemon Verbena, which is part of the Decadent Desires section of The Cornerstone Collection.  This candle is $25.95.  It features spunky lemon &  floral verbena combines in this uplifting delight. Our Lemon Verbena Candles begin with tangy lime, grapefruit & lemon and combines the best offerings of lavender, geranium, rose &  lemongrass.


I love wood wicked candles.  The light crackling sound and the aroma of the candle filling the room, so I was excited to see the Lemon Verbena candle was one of these candles.  I honestly have never had a lemon scented candle and was not sure how I would like it.  I replaced my candle in the bathroom with this new one and waited to see the results.  My son was the first to notice the candle and exclaimed the bathroom smelled like lemonade.  While my husband said he liked the smell, but it reminded him of a lemon based cleaner.  I personally thought it had a clean and crisp scent.  It was funny to see all our reactions to the same scent!   Even thought I was hesitant at first, I am in love with this scent.  It was a refreshing change to the normal bland scent I had in the bathroom!

Lovespoon also gives back to those in need and donates a generous amount to a chosen charity at the end of each year.
