Tiny Trinket Candles

You guys are about to get spammed with a whole lot of pictures so be forewarned!!

Last night I was lucky enough to win one of Tiny trinkets 2000 fan giveaways for a martini glass candle with a charm. (Picture below)

I was so ecstatic! Until some petty person wrote they were unliking their page because of me! Their exact words? "I have to unlike you sorry, blame Holly Uhler" Well if it's because I won there's not much I can say.... If it's because of me personally all I can say is... Whatever her problem with me is, it's so insignificant I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT i SAID TO TICK HER OFF! Anyway... 

Tiny Trinket Candles is by far my favorite candle company at this time. They offer so many choices for scents and even sizes! Best of all? Everything they sell comes with SOMETHING in it! They deal mostly in Charms and beads and with every first order they even include a leather bracelet to keep your charms on! If you don't want leather they also have a section where you can buy an upgrade to a silver bracelet for a very reasonable fee!

These are a sample of their adorable votives. They each come with a small charm or bead and in my opinion are absolutely adorable. You can get 1 for $6.00 or if you buy a three pack or larger there is a dollar discount on each. If you go now during their 2000 fan celebration knock off another 20%!

These are a few of the charms and surprises found in the candles and or votives.

This Company is unbelievable. To just leave them because they don't like another follower is just.... redonkulous. Maybe she doesn't like my frank and honest reviews.... Maybe she said something stupid and I did not hesitate to point it out and correct her.... To that, as you know or should by now.... I will not apologize.

But back to Tiny Trinkets... Here are some more pictures of items they offer.

Jelly Jars, also $6.00 or 3 or more for $5.00:

16 oz Jar Candles 15.00 (Guaranteed 2 Charms):

26 oz Mega Charmed Candles (which can contain other prizes like gift codes, gift cards and jewelry!) 26.99 for single or for 32.99 Layer up to 3 scents:

Finally let's talk about the Mystery Candle Club! You can choose 1 month at 9.99, 3 Months for 28.99 or 6 months for 52.99! I'm going to copy paste details from site for this one lol it'll be under the picture!

Choose your membership length: 1 month, 3 months, or 6 months! The longer the membership, the more you save!
Every month, on the 1st of the month, you will receive 2 votive-sized or 1 larger(12+ ounces) candles in unreleased scents. Each candle contains 1-2 foil-wrapped charms.

Jewelry In Candles Review

OK, so the next candle on the review list is Jewelry In Candles. Please don't confuse it with Jewelry Candles, they are their own company and have no affiliation. That being said, I would like to note that though I enjoyed the candles I recieved, one of which was an accident but contained an 18k gold ring with diamonds I personally would like to see them change the name. If for no other reason than as is they risk having Jewelry Candles cause them problems because they HAVE trademarked their name. Thats all I will say on their name. I'm just here to evaluate their Candles on Quality. It's my mission to give you honest reviews and make my fans aware that they have options. You can check out their site at 


The review:

I loved how fast I got the product. Honestly when I evaluate a lot of these candle companies there is quite a wait involved because they pour to order and don't always have stock available. As I previously mentioned I received two candles because of a shipping error, when I sent them an email to tell them I had received someone else's candle they told me to keep and and enjoy. That was very generous and nice of them. Unfortunately it was a scent I despise, Lavender  Now it had nothing to do with their scent personally it's simply that I do not like it. If you, however, like the scent of lavender I encourage you to try it. I burned it in my laundry room and could still smell it in my living room. That's quite a distance for one small candle to be able to throw a scent, so as far as scent and throw goes I really can't report a complaint on anything.

The Candle I ordered I loved. I got the Black Cherry and it was nice and strong. It smelled exactly as you would expect it to and I loved it. Both rings I received in the candles were real as well. The 18k from the Lavender is worth about $250 retail. The other has a fake stone but it was set in 925 silver and the band is very durable so I'd venture to guess about a $30-$40 range. They also offer for you to select a ring size which is wonderful. I do suggest ordering a ring 1 size larger than you really are as both the size 8 I ordered and the size 9 the other person had ordered were a size smaller than what it said. 

I really enjoyed this candle and have very little negativity about them. My first wick was a bit floppy but I know how to fix that. (extinguish candle and mold it straight using the melted wax, repeat this several times as the wax cools if needed than just let it cool completely before relighting that fixes it) but the lavender wick was fine. Beyond the wick issue there was only one thing I was not completely pleased with and that was the way the melted wax looked. I don't know if it was a weird batch or if it's how it always is but the melted wax looked somewhere between a normal soy and a jelly jar wax. It didn't effect the sent in anyway, it's just an aesthetic preference. All in all I'd give this company a solid 7 out of 10, a rating that would go up expedentially by fixing the issue with the name I listed in the beginning. I would definitely consider buying more from them, especially once their scent list is expanded.

Now for the fun part! To all my readers who went through and read this, come back Friday for the giveaway for your chance to experience this candle company for yourself!

The rings I received:

All images are links. The images of candles will direct you the Jewelry in Candle website where you can order your own, the logo will take you to their facebook page and my rings will take you to that rings reveal on youtube!

LoveLee's Candle Review

LoveLee's Candles

Last week I received and had the opportunity to review a new candle companies candles. LoveLee's Candles is a fabulous soy candle with jewelry I have had the pleasure of testing and must say , so far she is doing fabulous. Like always with my Candles with prizes I did do a reveal and review of the candle that can be found on my youtube: I am writing an additional review because I ordered a Tri-Level Candle and the jewelry was only one scent in so here's the breakdown:

My Prize

She is just beginning, so she can't afford yet to have really big ticket jewelry. What she does do is guarantee a minimum value of $30.00. She also guarantees the jewelry to be real (silver, gold etc) up to $250.00. Now, yes that's no $5,000 ring (Though she did tell me she is hoping to be able to expand the value range higher VERY soon) but honestly, I'd rather have a piece I know isn't going to turn me green. 

She offers several options for purchasing. This is straight from her ordering page as her list of available options:

Our candles and tarts are individually hand poured and made to order, please allow up to 2 weeks for us to ship your LoveLee's items. 

Jewelry Tarts-for those who would rather enjoy your scents in a tart warmer-16oz of wax with a piece of genuine jewelry hidden inside. $25

Tarts (without jewelry)-16oz of our amazing scents but without the jewelry surprise. $18

16oz jar jewelry candles-each contains a piece of genuine jewelry hidden inside with a value of $30-$250. Each candle is hand poured and made to order. $30

16oz jar candles (does not contain jewelry). The same awesome scents but without the hidden surprise. $25

16oz layered jar candles-these contain the same lovely jewelry as our regular 16oz candles but can be customized (colors and scents). $35. Please specify choice of 3 colors and scents at checkout.

This is very generous. Really, if you think about it, you're buying for a surprise piece of Jewelry and getting a free candle since, unless you get the layered candles you are actually paying the price of the minimum jewelry value or less! And hey, to layer it you pay a whole 5 dollars! This is just epic.

Now onto the scents and to wrap this up! I ordered a Tri-Level, I had pictures of it when I opened it but they seemed to have corrupted so I cannot post them. This upset me since it was very pretty, BUT, you can see my unveiling video as well on youtube!

My first layer was there most popular scent called "Angel's Embrace. I wanted to try it for three reasons, one, the description sounded good, two,  it's their most popular scent and three, My son's name is Angelus and we call him Angel, at least when he's good. Basically it's a Strawberry Vanilla scent, though she has a much more appetising description. It really did smell great it was my favorite. 

My next layer was Fruit Punch. It's a scent I had never tried in a candle and I thought it would mix well with the other two scents during burn. (Something I HIGHLY recommend you consider when you order a multi-level Candle. Remember that your middle scent will mix and mingle a bit with both the top and bottom layers so choose a scent that will be neutral to both scents or regret it. If all else fails? Vanilla is usually a safe bet smelling decent with almost all food scents AND a lot of florals) ANYWAY, lol, Her fruit punch is a mix of strawberry, apple and cherry, it smells just like my kids favorite Hawaiian Punch!

Finally, for my last scent I chose Black Raspberry Vanilla. This was another scent I have never tried and my fiancee wanted it. Normally I'm not crazy about Raspberry, I grew up on wild raspberries we would pick in the summer. I loved them but once I moved and had to buy them at a store it was never the same. I must say however, I really enjoyed it. The raspberry had a nice tartness and it cut the vanilla perfectly. 

All in all this was a lovely, haha punny, experience. I strongly recommend trying them out. The candle is worth the price three times over. Thanks for taking the time to read my review! If you read all the way to the bottom? Guess what!? Heads UP! The giveaway for a LoveLee's Candle in the scent of your choice will be LIVE, Friday, 5/10/2013! Keep an eye out on my Facebook page for the Giveaway Tool than!
