Review and Giveaway by: Elitemama
Jewelry Candles was inspired by the famous classic movie, Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. A great classic movie that everyone has pretty much seen. The people at the company love the movie and thought that it would be awesome to do their own Willie Wonka type concept. Instead of having golden tickets inside of a chocolate bar, you will find jewelry in these all natural soy candles. With Jewelry Candles, everyone is a winner =) Inside of all the candles there is a hidden jewel that can be worth anywhere from $10 to $7,500. In the candle you could find a ring, necklace, pendant, bracelet, anklet, or even a pair of earrings. You never know what you will find in your candle, but it will always be a fabulous piece of jewelry.

Jewelry Candles are made with 100% natural soy and premium quality fragrances making these candles smell amazing. There are LOTS of scents to choose from. The candles are huge! They are 21 oz and have a burn time anywhere from 110 hours to 150 hours so you get a lot of bang and fragrance for your buck. Each candle is hand poured with love from Louisville, Kentucky.

I was excited to have the opportunity to review one of the lovely Candles from Jewelry Candles. Not only was I excited, I was was practically jumping up and down like a kid in a candy store, lol. My kids even looked at me funny as well. So, I got to choose a candle and I chose the Pink Love candle. Now before I go on about the candle, I want to let all of you know about the shipping. The shipping was excellent. The candle arrived extremely fast, I mean in like less than 2 days fast. And the best part was the packaging. When it came to the packaging, that candle was sealed and protected. I mean it was covered in so much bubble wrap, the candle could have made it though a battle, lol. It was great. That right there shows that Jewelry Candles takes care of there products and wants their customers to be completely satisfied.
Here is the lovely candle
Originally the label on the candle was covering the area where the jewelry “marker” is, but I moved it so you can get a visual of where to expect your jewelry when you get your candle. It doesn’t always end up in the same place as mine happened to be. It could be a bit higher.
The candle has to wicks so it gives you a nice even burn. No need to worry about the candles tunneling through one side leaving the other side waxy, lol. The smell of the candle when it is burning is so relaxing and calm. I love it and there is no harsh or pungent odor either when it is being burned.
And now, for the best part. Are you ready? Lookie =)
As you can see in one part of the photo the foil is peaking through the wax. That is when you are ready to open your prize. I got this lovely heart shaped ring. It fits perfect with the candles. And I’m letting you know this ahead of time, the jewelry is top knotch. I have a scensitivity to jewelry causing me to break out, but with the ring that I got in my candle, I had no issues at all. I even wore the ring for three days straight to see if I would have a reaction and nothing. So you know right then and there that Jewelry Candles uses high quality jewelry in their candles along with a high quality candle =) Once you have tried Jewelry Candles, you will be hooked.

Creamy Tomato Basil Pasta with Beef and Bacon!!!

**UPDATE** So we LOVED this meal!! I didn’t know if the hubby would like it because he usually likes more tomato based sauces over creamy ones…but he totally dug it!! He said that this has to be added to our meal rotation…so that’s always a good sign!!



So while grocery shopping a couple of nights ago, I grabbed a package of ground beef. There just so happened to be a coupon for the Philadelphia Cooking Creme on the pack, so I decided now would be a good time to give it a shot. Well today I sat down and figured out how I’m going to use it, and I think it will turn out pretty good. I am going to share the recipe now, and post a picture of  the result later tonight!! This is super simple and doesn’t look like it will take long at all to prepare!

“Creamy Tomato Basil Pasta with Beef and Bacon”

You will need:

  • 1lb ground beef
  • 1 10oz container Philadelphia tomato basil cooking creme
  • 1 package of your favorite pasta
  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 2 tbsp red pepper flake
  • Parmesan cheese

Dice bacon while raw and cook in skillet over medium heat until crispy. Drain on paper towel and set aside. You can then start your water to boil for the pasta. While that is heating, brown your ground beef (just use the bacon pan, and season with salt and pepper). When your pasta is cooked, drain and return it to the pot. Add your ground beef, and 10oz container of cooking creme and red pepper flake.  Heat on low to combine ingredients. Garnish portions with Bacon and parmesan cheese.

I seriously can’t wait to try this out tonight!
