Hi everyone and Happy Monday!
I am excited to tell you about a give-away today that is super special.
Back in May I entered a give-away that was being held in honor of one of my favorite puppies:
Bullet is the doggy of C.Richman from the blog:
In honor of Bullet’s birthday, she was giving away a candle from Terri’s Candles that not only featured Bullet on the front, but the candle scent is called Precious Puppy in honor of Bullet!
And I won!!
Here is what I received:
If you look closely you can see Bullet’s adorable face on the candle on the left, that was the candle I won for the give-away. Terri was a sweet heart and gave me another candle for featuring her candles on Dakota’s blog. She also gave me the most incredible vanilla scented tarts that you burn in a tart warmer (but I didn’t take a photo of those!)
When it comes to candles I am obsessed. I can never have enough of them, and I am super critical when it comes to the brands/scents that I will buy for my home. Terri’s Candles completely surpassed my expectations, and in my opinion smell BETTER than many candles that you would buy in a brick and mortar store. I cannot begin to tell you how much in love I am with these candles!
Hi my name is Terri and I started making soy candles as a hobby, but as each candle became better than the last one, I grew more & more passionate in the quest to create the perfect candle. Over time, Terri became Terri’s Candles.
We truly believe that you will be pleasantly surprised with each candle or melt that you order. We take great pride in producing maximum scented, clean burning candles.
We hand pour each candle at the time of order. We use the finest quality 100% soy wax, along with 100% pure fragrance oil and all of our wicks are cotton….no lead.
Why Soy?……Buying & burning candles isn’t the most eco-egregious thing you can do out there. They’re relaxing, they smell good & they make for interesting home decor.
But yes, those rumors you’ve heard about soy wax are indeed correct. They are better than the standard wax varieties.
Other candle wax is made from the petroleum byproduct paraffin. Burning a paraffin candle is like inviting a diesel truck into your home to let off some exhaust…the soot from both the diesel and the paraffin, contains a noxious mix of carcinogenic petro-carbon nastiness that can mess with your health & emit toxic chemicals like benzene & toluene. And as you know, petroleum isn’t exactly renewable. Soy is! And if you or someone in your family suffers from either allergies or asthma, burning a paraffin candle can contribute to the onset of allergy attacks and headaches.
What I am also excited about is Terri is interested in using her candles for fundraising for animals. If anyone knows of any local organizations that you would like to help out, you can contact Terri at sandprints239 at aol.com The candles would be made in the Precious Puppy scent with labels on the jars. You can contact Terri for more details.
In the meantime, Terri has most generously offered ONE OF MY READERS that resides in the U.S. the opportunity of winning the same candle that I received, shown below:
The scent is PRECIOUS PUPPY which is:
“A very special aroma of pink grapefruit, Valencia orange and key lime as top notes. Pink jasmine blossoms, rose petals and a fruity fusion of ripe apricot for middle notes and then bing cherry and ripe plums, round out the fragrance as base notes.”
It is a $14.00 VALUE!
HOW TO ENTER:
EXTRA ENTRY: Like Terri on Facebook and tell her that Dakota sent you! Come back and leave a comment telling me that you did this.
THE GIVE-AWAY IS OPEN NOW (18 and over who reside in the U.S. only please) and will END ON MONDAY, JULY 8TH AT 5PM EST. THE WINNER WILL BE CHOSEN BY WWW.RANDOM.ORG AND WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON WEDNESDAY, JULY 10th.
In full disclosure I was not compensated for this post. I received two candles and some tarts. One candle was won in a give-away, the other and the tarts were a thank you for featuring Terri’s Candles on Dakota’s blog. All opinions are my own.
