Old Factory Candle Gift Set #oldfactory

The following post is being brought to you by Old Factory and Terri’s Little Haven.

I recently received a Coffee Shop candle gift set from Old Factory and my home currently smells like a coffee shop. There is no greater smell in my opinion. I love going to Books-A-Million not only for their book selections, but also because I love the smell of their coffee shop. I could stay there all day browsing books and drinking coffee (and have been known to).

Right now, I have the Coffee Bean, Hazelnut and Chai Tea soy candles gift set burning in my tv sitting area. I use candles on a daily basis. Every. Single. Day. Pleasant scents help me remain relaxed so my back pain does not climb out of control. When it is out of control, which usually results from travel or the weather, I light more candles or add tarts in my tart burners and I can generally get it down to a more manageable level (status post failed back surgery). I learned this trick shortly after my surgery.

It didn’t take me long to realize that I preferred soy candles. If I used a lot of “regular” candles, my walls started looking smutty because of the amount of candles that I burn. I generally have candles lit in every room in my house. I have NOT had that problem with Soy candles. They burn cleaner and lighter and my white walls remain white.

I lit some candles this week that I found and purchased online and I woke up with the worst headache the day after I lit one of them. I’ve only had a migraine 3 times in my life and trust me, those 3 times were enough. I’m not going to be able to use those candles but my daughter gladly took them off of my hands. I was disappointed because they smelled divine. I’m not sure why some candles cause headaches and some don’t but I’ll keep buying and trying them and I have a list of the ones that do not cause headaches for future purchase.

It worked out because my Old Factory candles arrived just as I was giving the other candles away and I have NOT had a headache from these. They are now on my okay to buy list. I think one of the reasons these candles do not give me a headache is because they are not super strong. I can smell them when I walk in the tv sitting area but the smell doesn’t overwhelm the space.

The candles are hand poured and burn light and clean for 20 hours. If coffee scents are not your thing, that’s okay. They have so many other scent options to choose from. You can purchase all of the scent gift packs as well as the Coffee Shop candle gift set on Amazon. If you purchase a set, please let me know which set you chose. I’d love to know everyone’s favorite for a possible self sponsored future giveaway. If you have just a second, I’d really appreciate it if you’d read my Amazon review and if you find it helpful, please select the yes option.

Celebrate Real Beauty with Dove and Dollar General #DGFeelBeautifulFor

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post for Global Influence, Dove, and Dollar General. All opinions are 100% my own!

What makes you feel beautiful? For me, I feel like beauty comes from within and seeps out in our demeanor, or, more specifically, mine. You may feel beauty in a different way. I used to think beauty was only achieved after a day at the salon or spa. Then I had kids. It was then that I started viewing beauty on a whole different level. I would go through my daily routine and feel just as beautiful as I did spending all of my time and money on professional beauty options. These days, when I look and feel my best, my best makes me feel beautiful. When I use a great hair care product, I tend to strut around more with my bouncy, shiny, hair *flips hair over shoulder*. When I use a good body wash, I feel silky soft and I smell d.i.v.i.n.e. so I feel divinely, silky soft.

Great products don’t have to come with a big price tag and that was a lesson I had to learn. I started using Dove when Jodi hit the tween years. I was a little sweaty one day, we were working outdoors and she told me that I needed to try her deodorant because she didn’t have underarm odor (did I?). I took her advice and used her Dove deodorant. One use and I was hooked. I then bought some Dove body wash. I bought dove soap, shampoo, conditioner, men’s products, products I didn’t even use before. I was a Dove maniac. The more I bought the more I bought. You know? It’s not often we find something that works so well and is affordable enough that we can go a little crazy with our purchases.

Dove

My day starts and ends with Dove. I’m headed to Dollar General to stock up on more Dove products and I really suggest you do as well because, and right now, we can save $2 when we spend $7 on any Dove or Vaseline products in-store. This offer ends on 10/19 so be sure to stock up this weekend.

All aboard with Atlantic Luggage Win a Trip to New York City or San Diego, California

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Atlantic Luggage for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Holidays for us always means traveling to other states to spend time with our family members that are scattered about.  I really enjoy traveling especially when I have quality made {cute} luggage.  Speaking of luggage, Atlanta Luggage has a sweepstakes going on that I’ve entered and I hope you will as well, because if I don’t win, I’d love for you to, lol.  If you like to travel as much as I do, you’ll love the prize:  a family trip to New York City or San Diego, California.

I don’t know which destination I would want to go to the most, that would be a hard choice.  Ultimately, I hope I’ll have the opportunity to visit both of these great states one day, but, if I had to choose which one I would want to visit first, I think it would be the trip to New York City.  I have always wanted to ride a horse and carriage through Central Park. It’s a dream I’ve had for  many years now.   It would be so romantic to see Central Park in an open-air carriage ride. And did I mention it’s a trip for 4? You could take another couple with you or your kids.  I’d take the kids because a chance of a lifetime, to get out of the country and go to a city as large and beautiful as I’ve seen photos of New Your to be, doesn’t come around every day.

Let me fill you in a little bit about  Atlantic Luggage before you take off and try to win my spot in the sweepstakes, ha. Their luggage is quality made and I’ve always been impressed with their great reputation.  They offer luggage for any and everyone.  For me I love the rolling uprights because it’s hard for me to carry luggage with my back injuries.  They also offer quality spinners, AND stylish garment bags.  They have beautiful totes which I’d use for my carry-on option. They also have hardsides, duffels and business cases.  Whew, that’s a lot of luggage to choose from and again, this company has a stellar reputation and their products are made with the best quality fabrics, and hey, they are really affordable.

Back to the sweepstakes.  Here’s a few more details before you head over to Atlanta Luggage to try to win this trip for 4. The sweepstakes will run from October 15th through November 15th and you won’t have to wait long to see if you are the lucky winner of this prize valued at $3,700.  A winner will be selected within a mere 7 to 10 days so be watching to see if you are the lucky family that will receive this trip for 3 days and 2 nights.  There is a deadline on when the trip has to be taken but you’ll have plenty of time to  plan your ultimate vacation to your destination choice before it needs to be booked (9/30/15).  The trip will need to be taken by 10/31/15 and again, that’s plenty of time to plan ahead.

The grand prize winner and their 3 guests will be traveling in style with Delta.  We flew on Delta on our last trip to Texas and we really enjoyed the flight and crew.  Please note the grand prize package trip certificate is valid for round-trip economy air transportation (valued at up to $450 per ticket), for the Grand Prize winner and 3 guests, from a major U.S. airport serviced by Delta Air Lines.  The airport location will be determined by Delta (they will try to select the one nearest to the lucky winner’s home). You will fly from the nearest major U.S. airport serviced by Delta Air Lines near New York City or San Diego, CA (as chosen by winner and determined by sponsor).  Not only will you receive air flight tickets, you will also be provided with hotel accommodations at a participating Delta Vacations hotel in New York City or San Diego, California.  On top of this, the grand prize winner will receive 4 Atlantic® carry-on sized suitcases and $300 allowance to spend on their choice of Delta Vacations Tour or Activity packages.

Please leave me a comment telling me which trip option you would select if you are the lucky winner (and if you are I’m going to be so jealous) then click on the following link to enter for a chance to win this amazing family trip to New York City or San Diego, California. Good luck to each of you.  This will be a trip of a lifetime for the winner and their guests. Click here to Enter to win a family trip.

Space Scouts Monthly Subscription Box for Kids Giveaway #SpaceScouts #BloggerBuzz Holiday Shopers Gift Guide 2014


Brought to you by Space Scouts LLC and Terri’s Little Haven.

Monthly subscription boxes are becoming really popular because they are such a unique gift idea. I visit a lot of sites when I’m searching for products to give as gifts and I’ve noticed the increase of the monthly subscription box clubs. I have been trying some monthly subscription boxes out myself because a gift is fun to give but 12 gifts are 12x the fun. I’m featuring several unique subscription box plans in my Holiday Shoppers #BloggerBuzz gift guide as gift ideas. But for today, I have a subscription plan that I think you would be interested in and you might want to go ahead and order it, just because. Who needs a reason to send a gift? Not me. This particular monthly subscription box service is just for kids and especially kids who loves learning about space.

We are having all kinds of space fun here at Terri’s Little Haven. We have been scouting the outer space with ROXY and JETT. ROXY and JETT are featured in the Space Scouts monthly subscription box for kids.

Space Scouts Month at a Glanse

The first month they sent a lunchbox for the backdrop of all of the future boxes. It’s made with a quality metal material and is so colorful and illustrated, boys and girls alike will love this lunch box. In fact, it’s going with me to a trip to the zoo next week. That’s right, ROXY and JETT are going to go see and meet some interesting new furby friends. I want the chance to share this subscription box serivice and what better way to share than to use it :). I’ll be the coolest mimi there with my lunchbox.

It’s so pretty, it’s really out of this world. All I need is a space suit.

Are the stars out tonight?

Who is ready for a trip to the moon?

We’re scouting outer space. Won’t you join us?

Space Scout

I wonder how many stars we’ll see tonight…

It really is all that.

And, a bag of “twists”..

We’ll keep this element of surprise, a surprise.

Flight 3-2-1 to the moon is now ready for boarding at gate number twelve.

We’re ready for our next adventure.

Can you believe all of the fun learning activities that are included in the subscription? We have had so much fun with the exciting challenges. I’m all for any company that provides hands-on discovery methods. There are so many space wonders to be explored and who better to increase our kids interest than Space Scouts? Growing up, I went through a phase when I wanted to become an astronaut. That was until I realized just how much I’m afraid of heights. That hasn’t stopped my love of learning about space.

I love the magnets that are included each month. Sometimes we put them on the inside of the lunch box AKA our launch pad. Sometimes we put them on the outside.

Next up.

Can you locate the big dipper with your children?

Tonight in our outer space travels, we’ll be learning about gravity…

…and astronauts.

We are going to continue our outer space adventures and I hope you will spike your own children’s interest as well.
