HeatherLou4you Review & GIVEAWAY

Heather from HeatherLou4you has graciously decided to do a review & giveaway with me. First I want to share some information about Heather and her shop.

 I discovered ETSY while flipping through an issue of REAL SIMPLE magazine, and after I checked it out I was instantly an ETSY addict. I have always been crafty so I decided that an ETSY shop would be the perfect way to utilize share my many hobbies. For the first year I started selling whatever I felt like making at the time, by the second year I decided to put a smaller focus on my shop and make and share things that reflected my passion for the environment and recycling. Now the majority of my shop is made up of recycled and up-cycled items ranging from recycled wax candles to reusable shopping bags made from fused together plastic shopping bags. My goal for the summer is to really vamp up my shop with more of the items I already love making and some new and fun recycled creations. Another goal of mine is to find new ways to get my shop out there so I am really excited about this giveaway. 

Heather sent me a Recycled Soy Wax Candle to review.  The candle smells a lot like lavender to me, but the description says an incense aroma. I burned it for 3 hours, and you can hardly tell it's been used at all. The smell is great, and there isn't a lot of smoke when you blow the candle out. I had always wanted to try a soy wax candle to see the difference, and now I'm hooked! The do last longer and burn cleaner, I would have never thought that! I love the fact that this candle is recycled, if you couldn't tell.. I'm all about natural and eco friendly products. Right now it's setting up on my mantle along with my sea shells and faux salt.

The good: Smells great, last long, & recycled
The bad: Honestly, I have yet to find anything bad about it.
The Conclusion: I would buy another candle from Heather most definitely.

So y'all know usually I do a giveaway that is the same as the review, however this one is different. Heather is giving away one of her retired items. It was a big hit when she sold it, and she wanted to do something special for all of y'all.  Heather is giving away a hand shaped Fairy Door!!
