Lumnique Personalized Scented Candles {Giveaway} – CLOSED

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.
“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.
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!

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.

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!

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.
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.

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!

Welcome back!  Our family had a fabulous holiday season and enjoyed vacationing, spending time with extended family, and eating delicious food.

You might have noticed in December that we had giveaways and reviews posted at least once a day, sometimes multiple times a day.  We have good news — that’s going to continue!  Be sure to check back on Dandy Giveaway each day for our daily giveaways and/or reviews, and make sure to follow us on Facebook if you aren’t already.

I have been loving my skinny jeans this season, more than I ever imagined that I would, and I’ve especially loved the skinny-jean-and-flats look.  It’s just gotten too cold here to wear flats anymore, though, and I pretty sure that I’ve been wearing my boots more than my husband wears his.  (Remember that he’s an active duty Marine who works four days on and has two days off…)


I was excited to find these KANDALS shoes as a great alternative to my boots on those cold-but-sunny days.  These shoes are cute and SUPER comfortable — I actually wore them around the house for the first week when it was rainy outside, and I loved the material and the feel.  On top of that, though, there are a few defining pieces that allow KANDALS shoes to stand out against the rest:

KANDALS are a unique line of scented, earth-friendly shoes made in Spain with premium, natural material. The soles of each pair of KANDALS are dyed with a strawberry scent.   Scented?  Yes.  Strawberry?  Yes.  My son asks all day if he can smell my shoes, and he gets a kick out of it every time.  (No pun intended, but pretty funny…)


 Organic and Comfortable:  Made in Spain from eco-friendly upper and natural rubber outsole.  Double canvas stitching allows the canvas to mold to your feet.


 Convenient: The outsole is also very flexible allowing you to walk with comfort and easily fold the shoes so they can be slipped into a purse or athletic bag without hassle.

Eco_Womens_Classic_Shoes_Red_FrontSustainable: For every pair of KANDALS sold, a tree will be planted to aid in deforested areas of lower income countries.  Last month, thanks to our customers, we’ve donated to Trees for the Future to plant 500 trees in Ethiopia.  


 Here’s one of my favorite parts, though — they have a special price for college students!  My husband and I were full-time college students for two years, and I know that I always appreciated the school discounts that were given in our small college town.  Read on for some information straight from their website:

“College is awesome. But as great as it can be, we always run out of cash to buy more shoes, clothing, beauty products, etc. Our KANDALS team comprises both currently enrolled college students and recent grads. We created KANDALS shoes to cater towards college students both in style and customer service.

Seeing that tight budget is always a concern for us and our fellow classmates, we created an exclusive student pricing. All you will need is a college “edu” account to be eligible and we will send you the discount code to your student email. You can sign-up on the left section of this page with your “edu” email address.”

And, I just got texting a couple of months ago (yes, really…), so I now can appreciate (and partake of) the amazing idea of customer service through texting:

“Our customer service is primarily through text messaging. Why wait in line for someone over the phone when you can just text and get a response from us throughout the day? You can hit us up with any question whether you’re in class, the library, at home or while shopping online. We’ll text you back as soon as we can.”

Head on over to the KANDALS website, take a look at the cute styles in their LOOKBOOK, then come back and enter to win!
