I’ve always felt that lighting a candle is something your allowed to do AFTER your house is sparkly clean and dinner is in the oven. I feel that you should probably be sporting presentable clothing and your kids have to be wearing pants before its okay to light a candle. Lighting a candle in the midst of chaos is a serious breach of protocol. It’s like eating dessert first. It’s cheating. Of course this is all in my head and in truth you can be drowning in dishes, laundry, and diapers and still light a candle. I tell you all that to say that when Goose Creek Candle Company e-mailed me to see if they could send me a couple of candles and host a giveaway I almost wrote back “Thanks, but my house isn’t clean enough for scented candles“. But I didn’t, I thought “What the heck, let’s have dessert first!”
So I received my candles, and I lit them…even though my house was completely not worthy.
Sink full of dirty dishes? It’s okay, light a candle.
Neglected bathroom that smells a lot like dirty diapers? It might still look like trash, but it will smell divine.
Sitting amongst a pile of laundry in your scruffy old pajamas? I’d call that candle time, baby.
Seriously though, these candles smell amazing. I ordered the Vanilla Cashmere and the Autumn scent…I love them both, but I love the Autumn one just a little more. I’m not used to my house smelling so nice! (Or nice at all, really…as long as we’re being honest). They come in very pretty jars that aren’t covered in labels AND I found this tutorial on how to remove leftover wax…so your can use your jar even after the candle is long gone.
So Goose Creek Candle Company has offered to giveaway TWO candles (yup, two winners!), to enter just use the rafflecopter below. (Your house doesn’t have to be clean to win…but it does have to be in the US. Sorry, I hate it as much as you do!)
If you would rather purchase a candle, use the code 1050 and take 25% off your entire purchase until Oct. 31st!
