Diamond Candles Review and Giveaway

When I was a kid the promise of a toy in a box of cereal or cracker jacks was the best thing ever. I was the impatient child digging to the bottom of the box, pouring the contents out, whatever it took to get to the prize. I love prizes. Who doesn’t??

So… when I first learned of Diamond Candles, I was beyond intrigued. All natural soy candles with amazing scents, and in every candle there is a ring of a value between $10 and $5,000. It’s the box of cereal prize for grownups!! What ring will you get? What will it look like?


Truly amazing scent! Not over-powering at all and my house smells amazing!!



That’s the ring…

After spending days trying to decide which scent to try, I chose the lavender lemon scent, place my order and patiently waited. When the candle arrived, I lit it right away. I let it burn whenever I was home and kept waiting for it to burn low enough for me to start to dig for the ring. Yes, I dug for the ring… I really couldn’t wait to see!!


Finally, I could get to the ring and got it out. What I unwrapped was a fun and glittery ring! So much fun and now I cannot wait to order another candle and see what that one holds for me!!

Dear October

First, I must apologize to all of you for going MIA lately. I am not going to reveal all the reasons why, it is still personal issues I am dealing with personally. 2013 has been a tough year to date. I am getting stronger and more focused day by day. Know that I have missed you all and am going to ease back in to a stronger blog presence. That said… here is my post to October, enjoy!!

Hey there October… it’s me. The girl who went a little crazy and booked lots of stuff for this month. About that… I’m not really sorry, I’m a little nervous, but not sorry. I am actually very excited to tackle this month of challenges. So, if you could do me a favor and be kind, I would greatly appreciate it.

As you know, 2013 has been a year of challenges and struggles… I need a solid, positive month to help me start the last quarter of this year strong, focused and positive.

So let’s work together on this to guarantee success… this weekend’s brother visit and regatta event will be amazing. Our team is strong and ready for the challenge. Plus, who doesn’t love quality time with the brother?!

I’ve waited all year for Long Beach and to finish the Beach Cities Challenge… so not only do I get to do that this month, I get to finish with a dear friend, side by side. Who can ask for more?

Lastly… I am going to have a strong showing at the Iron Girl. All the training, the panic, the preparation will all pay off. That lake swim, not so scary… that bike ride, doable, that 5k- easy!

So, October, I will do my part in this agreement for an amazing month, you do your’s and together, we will create an October to remember!!
