Twinkie Boutique Review and Giveaway Ends November 26th!!! **CLOSED**


So have you heard of Twinkie Boutique? Well listen up because I have alot to say about them! I ran across them one day through a Facebook friend. At first I just watched her site and her Facebook page and never really thought much about it. Except one day she had these ADORABLE little mini market totes on sale...and they were embroidered!!! So I thought hmmm. I love trying to new places and I especially love it when they are WAHM/WAHP! SO I figured why not! So I ordered one of these cutie gifts for my soon to be 1 year old as a birthday present. I figured it would make a really good gift for her. So I let Twinkie Boutique know what I wanted, what style, and what name I wanted on it. I sat back and waited for its arrival.

Now...I thought ok, this is going to be a month before I see it. So I won't bug her until a month has passed. WRONG! I received the amazing little tote in less than 2 weeks. When I got the box in I just looked at it for a minute. I was trying to figure out why on earth the box was so big. See I am not one for thinking about dimensions or anything when I order and the dimensions for this were 12"L x 9 "W x 7"H. I purchased a mini market tote...and my brain told me that it was going to be just that...MINI! HAHAHAHA! Boy who was I kidding? I opened the package up...and there it was. This beautiful mini market tote (but not so mini). I looked it over and over and over. I loved the color. I loved the font that was used. I loved the thread color of that font. There was nothing about it I did not love!

Sadly since it is for my daughter's 1st birthday I have no pictures of her with it. But as you can see. It is amazingly beautiful and I can not wait to give it to her. I love it so much I decided to get a regular market tote for my older daughter. I can not wait to see how big the regular totes are.

These totes are not expensive at all and they are great for gifts. A mini market tote (remember it is not that mini) runs about $20 and comes in all kinds of colors and patterns. The regular market totes cost about $25.00.

So what all can you buy from Twinkie Boutique? Oh so many things! You can buy clothes that are appliquéd for your children in all sizes and there is even a section for the adults with things like hand towels and car monograms. The choices are almost endless. Oh and did I mention- if you have an item you want to get something on it like an embroidery design or appliqué she will do that too!



So. Would you like a chance to win an item from Twinkie Boutique? Well she is giving one of my lucky readers a free hand towel with their choice of letter, font, and color thread! Good way to test an item out before you buy a whole set, right?



So what do you have to do? Easy!

JKM Soy Candles Review and Giveaway Ends November 18th! **CLOSED**









So who loves candles? I know I do.  I think they can make your house smell so great.  My only problem is they tend to set off my smoke alarm.  No good, right?


So let me tell you a little bit about JKM Soy Candles.  I will start out by stating my review for them is AMAZING (atleast in my opinion!).  I received 4 oz Plumeria candle from JKM Soy Candles.  BTW they have so many amazing scents to choose from. I opened it up and before I even took the lid off I could smell that this was going to be amazing.  It was in a cute little glass container. The lid had the name of the company and the scent of candle that I had. Very cute decorating!  OH! Did I mention these are 100% soybean wax candles? No, I didn't? Well guess what they are! And do you know what that means!!! THEY BURN CLEAN! OH YA!  So on with my review.....


I grabbed my lighter and lit the candle up.  It did not take forever to light it and you could smell the scent instantly!  I burned it a few times before writing the review...which is why it took me so long to get this review up.  I wanted to see just how it did after several times of lighting it up!.  


So after an hour of the candle burning I decided to put it out.  When I blew it out, there was a slight smoke line that came off from blowing it out...but it was not as bad as every other candle I have blown out.  It did not stink up my room either.  I have to say my biggest fear of blowing out a candle is that nasty smell you get...and it always OVERPOWERS the candle smell that I JUST got! Nope...not this one!  My room still smelled YUMMY! And guess how much candle I burned!! NOT ALOT!!! I mean for an hour and for how much scent it gave away I KNEW that 1/2 the candle was gone...NOPE!!!


So a few days later I lit this lil bud up again! YUM! Smelled so good, and smelled like it did the first time around.  I burned it for 4 hours (was only suppose to be 1 but it smelled so good and I forgot lol).  OH NO!! I KNEW my candle was going to be gone...NOPE! It was only 1/2 way! After 5 hours total of it burning it was still 1/2 there.  


Now, have I burned it since? Nope :( I do not want it to end.  I have to buy more before I let that little bugger go.  So of course I WILL be ordering more.


Now you should head over there right now and buy some!  She is always having sales and shipping discounts on items.  Sometimes you can even buy one get one! Neat right??


Ok ok...so who wants a chance to win one? Yes, I said win one!  Any scent too! WOW!!


SO check it out:



1 reader will win 1 4oz soy candle in their choice of scent

The entries for this one will be simple.

Life

Hi everyone,
So life has been pretty hectic with me. I have started school, started an online business, and dealing with family and life. It is not that I have put my blog on hold it is just getting the time to sit down and actually work on it and give you guys what you deserve...well thought out reviews.

So with that being said, I have 2 reviews I will be posting this week. One has a giveaway and one does not. But we are here for the reviews right? HA!

I am amazed at all the great businesses out there and even more amazed when those businesses are from WAHMs and WAHDs. I thank you guys for being patient and look for the reviews coming up!
