Product Review & Giveaway: Diamond Candles...

I have a new obsession and I wanted to share it with all of you! I recently-ish discovered Diamond Candles thanks to an Instagram photo that "Lexie" posted a few weeks ago and I am totally in love.
For those of you that don't know Diamond Candles are all natural soy candles that have a ring worth anywhere from $10 to $5,000 inside of each of them. It's seems so silly and gimmick, but it is so much fun burning these candles and waiting to be able to pull out that little gold foil wrapped ring.
Since the start of my obsession I've had two candles delivered. I ordered my first candle right before Hurricane Sandy hit and I unfortunately had to use it because the power went out, but I must say it was an excellent distraction (For myself and Justin's sisters) and made the place smell wonderful.

I cannot express how much I love the scent of these candles. You know how some candles smell awesome in their jar/container/whatever and they don't smell the same once you start burning them? Well that is not the case with these candles. They smell just as amazing while burning as they do in the jars and they have a great scent throw.

In terms of the rings, I did not receive a $5,000 ring or even $100 ring in either of my candles but I must say the $10 rings I did get are pretty sweet and they fit (Since reading around about these candles I know that people's biggest complaint is the fact that the size of the ring you're going to receive is a crap shoot and you may or may not get a ring that fits). And honestly if I got a ring I wasn't so fond of I could always the Diamond Candles Ring Swap Facebook page and try to swap with someone.

The only problem I have with these candles is that fact that they are so addictive and they cost like $30.00 shipped from the website if you don't have a coupon code or something, because I could honestly drop a bunch of money buying these (Justin told me I was a candle crackhead).

But I do have a tip for those who think spending $24.95 plus shipping on a candle is a little too rich for their blood. My suggestion to you if you wanna try them and not spend that much money is to sign up for Sneakpeeq because they frequently have the candles in their "Living" section and there is always some kind of discount on them. I got my Caramel Apple Cider candle off of Sneakpeeq for $13.99, plus free shipping (I had a free shipping badge that I applied to the order).

Now lets get to the fun stuff...

In honor of my love of these candles, December and it being holiday season I am giving away ONE (1) gift certificate worth $24.95 for a Diamond Candle to a lucky subscriber (Shipping not included, but they always seem have coupon codes floating around the interwebs for free shipping and if there is one when I give this prize away I will totally tell you what it is). Unfortunately this not open internationally because Diamond Candles does not ship outside of the United States.
