Serenity Candle Co. {Review}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

There’s nothing as romantic as candles. After a long, hard day with the kids, my favorite thing to see is my room lit up in candles, a hot bubble bath drawn up with my favorite book lying right next to the tub, and rose petals strewn about the floor….OKAY, I know this is just silly and over-the-top and has not happened ONCE in our six years of marriage (no fault to my hubby who has done PLENTY of lovely, romantic things for me), but a good smelling candle does do a lot to help my mood and to lift my spirits when I’m home (as well as remove any weird lingering odors from dinner the night before or the fact that I never got around to a shower after my morning workout). I also love  burning “themed” candles, i.e tropical scents in the summer, pumpkin and cinnamon scents in the Fall, and warm, sugary scents in the winter. Thank goodness CandleShop.com has all those and more!

The Serenity Candle Company specializes in making  the only 100% vegetable soy-based wax, clean-burning candle. All Soy Serenity candles feature eco-cotton wicks and are backed by their 100% customer satisfaction guarantee. Their soy candles include such mouth-watering scents as Apple Crumble, Sugar Cane & Vanilla, Gingerbread Spice Cake, Pineapple Cilantro and Oatmeal Milk & Honey. Their Aromatherapy candles feature scents such as Lemon Lavender, Vanilla Peppermint, Rose Bouquet and White Tea & Ginger. Most scents come in Small, Medium, Large and Extra-Large Jars, plus they sell Tea Light Candles, Tart Melts, Soy Melts and Wax Melts all in multiple scents. One of their neatest products is their Jewelry Candles, which is a candle with a piece of silver jewelry embedded in the candle–the jewelry could be worth $15-1500! What a great gift that would make!

I was sent samples of two lovely smelling candles, the Awapuhi Seaberry and the Noni Fruit. Both of these candles have a great tropical scent and made a perfect addition to our house this summer. Soy Serenity Brand Candles promise to have a longer burn time and a stronger scent throw than other candles, and I can tell you this is true! The scents are so strong that even when not even lit, I can smell them from across the room! I have to store them in a closed bag or else the scent is too strong for me…and this is when NOT LIT! Imagine how great your house could smell when the candle is actually lit! Soy Serenity candles light easily and burn prettily, thought you will notice a mottled look when it’s done burning due to the vegetable-based wax. This just lets you know it’s 100% legit!

Soy Serenity Candles can be purchased online at CandleShop.com. Compared to other candle companies, their candles are a bargain. The Extra-Large Jar candle, which has an impressive 170 hour burn time, sells for only $17.49! And right now, they are having their September Customer Appreciation Sale, where you can take an EXTRA 10% off Jar Candles {small, medium & large}. Use the code SEPTEMBER2013 when checking out.

If you were offered two pieces of cake–one perfectly presented, and one smashed on a napkin, even though they tasted the same, 10 times out of 10, I can bet any intelligent human would pick the slice un-squished.  We are drawn to pretty things, of course!  Just look at the way babies are attracted to anything bright, shiny, glittery, or colorful!  Likewise, I was drawn to the stunning shapes and colors of Scarlet Raine‘s candles, especially because they looked utterly DELICIOUS!
Scarlet-Rain-Label-Black-4-smaller
These homemade soaps are not to be compared to the smashed piece of cake, but rather, consider this comparison.  Next to any normal-looking candles, aren’t these so much more attractive?!  I’ll let these pictures do the talking.  Look at these wonders!
IMG_4997
Scarlet Raine makes natural artisan soaps and 100% Soy Candles.  Get a load of these Whipped Candles!  Here is the Blueberry Cheesecake, Hot Cocoa, and Red Hot Cinnamon:

I got to experience two of these Whipped Candles, and holy cow, the smell!!  My house smells like a sugary bakery!  I didn’t light anything for a few days, and just having them sit on the counter was enough to fill my house with sweet aromas of baked desserts and sweets.  Yum yum yum!
IMG_5001
I tried out the Banana Foster and Strawberry Passion.  Let me tell you, they smell EXACTLY what they sound like.  You can smell the bananas, butter, caramel sauce, brown sugar, vanilla ice cream and cinnamon in the Banana Foster, and Strawberry Passion glows with the smells of strawberries, cotton candy, and vanilla!  The whole time these have been in my kitchen, I’ve been thinking, what are they putting in these!?  And how can I get some of this scent in like a room spray?!  And here’s the thing: as they melted, instead of looking warped and droopy, they only looked more delicious!  Like an ice cream delicacy, dripping from the top and only looking more and more tempting!  The drippy wax looks more like syrup, and oh how the smell lingers.  Next up: Scent Shots
8973611833_3924dd9406_b
You can place these in a warmer or above a tea light, and get just the right amount of scent in the air.  I’ve lived in so many apartments where open flames were prohibited, so these would have been great on the desk.  I tried the Carrot Cake, which took me back to the holidays and all the glorious baking smells associated with them, and Pink Champagne, which smells just like a bubbly drink, and has the cutest little bead bubbles inside!
IMG_4998

Also in my bundle came a sample of the Creme Silk Soaps.  Can you believe these are SOAPS!!  They look like bakery masterpieces!

8974809558_5f19a2c8a6_b  IMG_20130227_104514

My sample of the Frangipani Rose is mixture of jasmine, lilac, rose, and lily of the valley with light fruity notes of peach, lemon, lime, and tart green apple.   I know, right?  All of that in a soap?  It smells divine, and as you lather it up in the shower, the suds are this pink, green, and white!
IMG_5005
So its been a few weeks that all of these Scarlet Raine goodies have been chillin at my house, and the smell is still so sweet and intense!  Besides the fragrance, these dreamy soaps and candles will surely brighten up your bathroom and kitchen with the look of appealing desserts!

Yankee Candle {Review}

You know how certain companies come to mind as the best and most popular in their category?  For example, I hear chocolate stuffed cookies and immediately think Oreos.  I hear tissues and I immediately think of Kleenex.  I think candles, and thoughts immediately go to the glorious fragrances of Yankee Candle.  They have been creating the most delicious candles for 43 years, in over 35,000 store locations in just North America.  Worldwide, their locations and distributors cover 56 countries.

yankee-candle-horizontal

When it comes to candles, Yankee Candle stands out to me as a forerunner.  I remember shopping as newlyweds with gift cards from our wedding, and on our list of ‘must-get’s for our apartment was a Yankee Candle.  One of these large jar candles costs an average of $27.99, but they last freakin forever (we’re talking 110-150 hours) and the scent is so permeating that we can easily justify the cost.  Sometimes I wonder if men ever get sick of their houses smelling so girly when the wives start lighting all these floral feminine scents, but wait!  Yankee Candle’s MAN CANDLES are back!  This limited edition collection has two new fragrances this year!

kfyoISR-9s8Y17buGy9sGKoDwhINoFWe54_mNclXnas

You’re going to love this: the scents include: First Down, Riding Mower, Man Town, MMM Bacon, and Movie Night!  How perfect for the man-cave.  We got to try out the latter two, and oh, they are great!

 IMG_4994 copy

First up: Movie Night.  Based on the picture on the front of the jar, I assumed this would be a strong buttery popcorn smell, and it IS popcorn-scented, but there is also some sweetness to it.  Maybe more like a caramel popcorn.  But then think about any typical movie night and there is usually popcorn AND sweets, so this is probably just right!

IMG_4991 copy

Then there’s MMM, Bacon!  This bacon craze is getting out of hand lately!  I love it!  This candle is INTENSELY STRONG!  Whew!  I cooked up some bacon and then had my husband close his eyes and guess which one was under his nose–the food or the candle.  He guessed correctly both times, probably because the candle has a sort of barbeque scent mixed in (like a smoked hickory smell), but barbeque is also manly, so its all good :).

IMG_4944 copy

Even though Father’s Day is past and gone, these would be great gift ideas!  And hurry because these are only available through the end of June!  Think summer backyard parties, upcoming birthdays, or anniversaries!  Your man would love one of these!  If you haven’t yet experienced a Yankee Candle, let me point out a few summer favorites:

Untitled-1

Go get your man a MAN CANDLE, and pick out something summery for yourself!  Thanks Yankee Candle!  You make the most INCREDIBLE candles!!

One of my favorite things to do lately as soon as the kids are in bed, is light a few candles and turn up some Michael Buble while I get crafty at the kitchen table.  There are a few things I can never leave out while the babies roam–projects, scissors, and fire are the top of the list. 🙂 After 7pm, the house is mine, and I lay out all the ‘untouchables’, and bask in the glowy ambiance of soothing candle flames!  One fantastic candle company called Candleshop.com let me review two of their cute travel tins, and they have really warmed up my nightly ritual!

imagesCandleShop.com carries jar candles by size, tealight candles, tarts and wax melts, candle tins, and even jewelry candles (oh la la!).  Their candles are handcrafted with essential oils and the best 100% Vegetable Soy-based wax.  All of their candles are white and free of unnatural dyes.  They pride themselves in creating an Eco-Pure Naturally Scented Candle.

2013-02-20_08-53-0613614882985126a9aa55e42 2013-01-21_07-35-00 2013-02-20_08-57-4713615004735126d939e8d91

I picked out two little travel tins and they are so cute!  They may look tiny, but they each have about 14 hours of burn time in them.  Sounds like a great deal for only $2.50!

IMG_4142

There are dozens of tempting scented candle flavors, including Rose Bouquet, Apple Crumble, Bazooka Bubble, Blackberry Sage, Black Currant & Cassis, Cranberry Chutney, Lavender Vanilla, Pomegranate Cider, White Tea & Ginger, etc.
I chose Lemongrass & Sage (a very lemony fresh scent that is great for summertime!) and Fresh Linen.  I will always love this scent.  True to its name, it smells like clean laundry.  A housewife will never get sick of that.
IMG_4144
Not a super strong scent, but these are mini’s, and I would actually be quite impressed if something this small could fill an entire floor.  If you get right up to it and breathe in deep right above it, the aroma is great!  These are probably great for small spaces, obviously for travel (I’m thinking they’d be great to throw in a suitcase for a vacation getaway), and perhaps best for décor, ambiance, and less for aromatherapy.
I do love the packaging!  Clean, cute scallops, lovely fonts and a very attractive label in all black next to the silver.  Even when the candles are liquid wax throughout, the tin doesn’t get too hot to touch, as in you can move them around and not burn your fingers.

“Charlie” is taking the CFA level III in two weeks.  For anyone out there familiar with this test, you know the loneliness that the wife can experience in never EVER seeing her husband for several months while he studies!  The study material comes in stack of books that measure well over a foot thick, and the passing rate is usually around 40% even among test-takers who study for 500+ hours.
LumniquePersonalizedScentedCandlesLogo
Lately, the best way I can support him in his study efforts are to just clear up all nights and weekends and let him study his heart out.  However, when I came across Lumnique, a customizable candle gift company, I thought this might be a perfect way to lift spirits, show my thoughtfulness, and encourage enlightenment!
IMG_3764 copy
The deluxe box was delivered quickly and the clean, crisp, and dark black box is very impressive.  Very sturdy, and one that I will definitely be using again to store other things.  What a lovely gift to behold!  These candles come in high-quality heavy glass jars, with resealable lids–I love being able to seal up the yummy scent when it is not in use.
IMG_3763 copy
Typically, ordinary candles are made in a scent paired with a specific color.  You know, red Christmas candles and smell like peppermint, green candles that smell like pine, etc.  Lumnique allows you to create any combination of intent, color, and scent to really create a one-of-a-kind gift!
IMG_3780 copy
With “Charlie” in mind, I started with the intent: GOOD LUCK
Next I chose his favorite color: SKY BLUE
And then I picked a scent I knew he loved: CEDAR
Completely unique, right?  The candle comes with a descriptive card explaining how the candle was custom made, and what each of the choices represent.  As in, the Good Luck intention is meant to remind you that impossible situations can become attainable miracles.  The sky color can symbolize patience, intuition, intelligence, practicality, etc.  The cedar scent can awaken the senses with its invigorating capabilities.  The detailed certificate is a really nice touch, and it makes the gift definitely more personal and intentional.
lumnique-package-card-e1293410452900
I was beaming as I handed over Charlie’s gift!  I’ve made sure to light it for him every night when he sits down to study 🙂 Soak in all those “good luck” aromas.
IMG_3787 copy
Now if you’re debating between the regular and the deluxe box, choose the deluxe because the matches alone make it worth it!  They are top-notch, high quality, very long and thick matches that strike effortlessly and burst into a strong flame.  Charlie, the Eagle Scout, was very impressed and mentioned that they might be his favorite part.
There must be someone in your life who you’d love to give a customized candle to!  From anniversaries, apologies, romance, friendship, celebration and “just because”, there is guaranteed to be a perfect candle for you to create!

One lucky winner will receive a Deluxe customized candle set from Lumnique!

Have you thought of what to give your neighbors for the holidays this year?  Are you doing any baking to give them?  Frankly I just do not have the time to make candy and cookies this year.  I just have too much going on.  Plus, our neighbors are really nice grandparent type people, so they always give Banjo actual gifts that would be like what Santa would bring him!  You know… toys, books, etc.  They give us nice home decor type gifts, too!  So somehow I feel bad just giving them cookies anyway.  So we tend to add them to our holiday gift giving list and buy them something little that they can enjoy this time of year.  Do you want to know what we are giving to our next door and across the street neighbors this year for Christmas?  Well, I’m going to tell you, so I sure hope none of them read my blog!  I don’t even think they know that I’m a blogger, though.  So that’s a good thing!   🙂    This year we are giving our neighbors this plug-in burner and some holiday scents for it:

From Scentsy of course!  I just love Scentsy, so I’m really  excited to give them their gifts!

It’s my favorite!  I’m thinking that I need a new holiday one for myself…

                                     

Fortunately for me Erica has got ’em!  There’s also a ton of other burners to fit just about every holiday!

Confession time!  I just might be a fragrance and cosmetic snob.  Okay… I definitely am one!  :)   I refuse to wear just any old scent and I don’t put just any old makeup on my face.  Wow I feel a major weight off to get that said and out of the way.   ;)   That all being said I’m also all about natural looking cosmetics, because I’m just a natural kinda gal.  I may not wear a ton of makeup, but what I do wear is always high quality.  That’s why I love Apothica!  They carry all the top brands at great prices.  In fact Apothica has so many of the brands that I swear by.  It’s an all in one stop for all your cosmetic, bath, fragrance, and home needs!  Care to have a look at some of my favorites?  

I love me some Smashbox and this Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer (Green) seriously takes care of the redness on my face!

Alright so I’m kind of a candle fanatic.  I love the scents they give off.  I love the decorating potential.  I love the warmth and ambiance that a candle adds to my bedroom.  It is Valentine’s Day people!  :)  But what I don’t love is the flame that could become a fire.  It makes me really fearful to have candles around the house with a toddler running around.  Even before we had Banjo I didn’t want to have candles lit.  Our first child was our cat.  He couldn’t handle the candles!  So I had to give up on my dream of having a candle lit home UNTIL I learned all about the wonderfulness of flameless candles! 

Enjoy Lighting recently sent me a couple of their candles and they are seriously spectacular.  These aren’t your typical battery lit candles.  The LED lights actually create a realness with the way the light flickers.  Plus, the candle outside is made from wax that only adds to its realness.  I’m so very impressed by the nice glow that is given off and that there is a timer setting!  Now I don’t even have to worry about switching it off.  I can just set the time (4, 6, or 8 hours) and not have to worry about it. 

Talk about a real time saver!  🙂

Flameless candles are available from Enjoy Lighting in a variety of sizes, colors, and fragrances.

 

                              

There truly is so much decorating potential with the flamess candles from Enjoy Lighting!

Isn’t this look gorgeous for a patio?

Enjoy Lighting is available at several dandy retailers that include Dillards, Target, and Brookstone.

Now who wants to enter to win 2 Enjoy Flameless Candles?  That’s right.  One winner, two candles!  Well, then enter to win already!  :)

Above all else I like my house to smell nice.  A little dust here and there is not a problem in my mind.  Just as long as people are greeted with a nice smell as they enter and leave thinking that it smelled good in that dandy house!    After all, it will be what is remembered over the dust, right?    :)    The key to making my house smell above and beyond its best is this wonderful product that my friend Kristy is actually a consultant for…Scentsy.   She recently sent me some of these for my early Christmas preparations…

And now I can’t wait to order some fun holiday scents!

 I seriously love everything about this Scentsy stuff…  

I love the way there’s not a hazardous flame going all the time.  I love the way the wax melts evenly.  I love the modern and unique types of burners.

Especially the entire line of collegiate ones!

How fun!

I LOVE the variety of scents!

Everything about Scentsy was already fabulous, but now it’s getting even better…  In September they are launching this cuteness!

They have scent packs that can be changed out.  So cute and such a great idea!

Who’s ready to win some Scentsy?  Well, with this giveaway there will be 4 winners!  The first winner is going to receive a full size warmer and three Scentsy bars.  Then 3 other winners are going to receive one Scentsy bar each.  Such a great giveaway!

Do you ever feel like your home could be a little fresher?  Maybe you’ve had sweaty little boys running in and out all day (this is every day in the summer at house), or a wet puppy,or sweaty little boys chasing a wet puppy (and why is it that sweaty little boys smell like wet puppies?)…. you get the idea (I could go on and on).  Come on, you know you have walked into your house and said, “hmmmm…. now what is that smell?”  Well,  I have found the cure!  It’s Scentsy!  If you don’t know about Scentsy, it is a decorative wax warmer that is heated by a small light bulb, instead of a traditional wick and flame (hello fire hazard!).

Scentsy warmers use either a 25, 20 or 15 watt light bulb (depending on your warmer) — so it’s just enough to melt the wax and release the scent into the air, but not enough to burn your skin.  The wax is non-toxic and biodegradable, so you can feel safe and responsible having it in your home.  Not to mention that there is a Scentsy warmer to match any home decor.

And the scents?  There is every scent you could dream of!  I personally have a stash for each season — in the spring and summer I like the fruity scents.  No wait… the scents that smell like clean laundry!

And for the fall and winter, there is nothing better than the smell of vanilla walnut, or sugar cookies, or caramel spice (my absolute favorite for winter) and I could go on and on.  I love the smell of baking — and Scentsy saves you the calories and the clean-up — and there are so many choices!

And how cute are these plug-ins?

Everyone loves a Scensty – the combo pack makes the perfect gift!  We have recently given several Scentsys to family members for birthday, Christmas or a housewarming gift — especially for those people who are hard to buy for.

Karen Pelley is an Independent Scentsy Consultant and is always looking for new members to join her team with this great at-home business opportunity.  Contact Karen for details if you are interested in becoming a Scentsy Direct Seller.

And now, one lucky duck is going to win a FULL-SIZE WARMER plus 3 SCENTSY BARS!
