I bought into the hype. I’m not proud.
But since I gave up scented candles so long ago due to their tendency to be noxious and totally toxic, I just couldn’t resist when I heard the buzz about Diamond Candles.
They’re pretty candles made with 100% soy wax, and the labels come off so you can reuse the cute jar they come in.
I said I wouldn’t do it…but then I found a really good deal, and I broke down. The former Bath & Body Works addict in me burst forth, grabbed my credit card and ordered before I even knew what happened.
Meet Strawberry Bliss.
Do I like the scent? No, not really. (It smells kind of like FrankenBerry and Strawberry Quik.) There are quite a few others that sound more my style, though…like Sunwashed or Apple Slice.)
But that’s not why I’m busy searching coupon codes for another Diamond Candle.
In fact, it’s not the candle at all, but what’s IN the candle that has me excited. Every Diamond Candle has a ring inside, valued from $10 up to $5,000!
I’ll give you one guess which one I got:
Yup, $10 ring. Not one I would ever choose. It’s totally gold, blingy and not “me” at all. But it was FUN! What a rush it is to watch the candle burn down to where the ring is so you can pluck out your little treasure!
And now? Now I want another one!! They sucked me in.
Sure, it’s all marketing hype. I know that. But you know what? Life is heavy sometimes, and we could all use a little light fun. I just might wear this little lady as a reminder to take that fun wherever I can find it.
Now, if I could just find a candle with a tiara inside, I’d be set!
