1,000 Followers Special-Boardwalk Candles Review and Giveaway

I know I have told you all at least once or twice, maybe more times how much I truly LOVE candles.  I have them all throughout my home, in my living room, kitchen and even in my bathroom.  I love a wide range of scents especially the fresh home baked scents like Cinnamon Buns, Vanilla, and Creme Brulee.  I love to burn candles all of the time, especially in the wintertime.  There is nothing better to me than on a day when it is very cold and there is a heavy snowstorm blowing outside, to have my home filled with delicious scents and the warmth of candles going all around me.  I have been so fortunate lately to find some great shops that sell homemade and hand poured candles that I have been able to bring to you via reviews and giveaways.  I have also been lucky to find some great Etsy shops that sell a variety of great items from some hard working people that make their own products.  Today, I get to combine the two:Etsy shop and candles, two of my new loves and present Boardwalk Candles.  I am very impressed with this shop because you can say it is near and dear to me.  Dear because of the wonderful products that is sold such as obviously candles, aroma bead sachets, table toppers, wall hangings, quilted coasters, and baby and toddler items.  Near because they are about 20 minutes away from me in nearby Grand Haven, Michigan!  I contacted Chrystie from Boardwalk Candles for a review and when she informed me as to just how close we were, I was happy to get the opportunity to work with her, being a Michigan company.

I was excited to get to review the most delicious candle ever: the Lemonade and Cherry Soy Candle.  It is an 8oz candle that is made with 100% pure soy wax hand poured by Chrystie herself.  It is also made with a cotton wick that provides a slow and steady burn.  To me, this is the absolute perfect summertime candle.  It reminds me of a tall glass of lemonade with a cherry on the top so to speak.  The top of the candle according to the description is fresh juicy lemons covered in sugar and the bottom of the candle is Black Cherry, which is a sweet blend of rich vanilla and ripe cherries with a pinch of clove.  I loved burning this candle because it had such a wonderfully sweet scent that made my living room smelling incredible.  Boardwalk Candles has so many unique and different scents that I haven't come across before.  From the Strudel and Apple Spiced Layered candle to the Pink Sugar and Vanilla Buttercream Layered candle, you are sure to find the scents that suit your individual tastes.

I also love the Lighthouse Wall Hanging and the Sailboat Wall Hangings that Boardwalk Candles has as well.  We both live on the lake and I always see the sailboats and walk along the boardwalk here in my hometown to see the lighthouses, so I can only assume that that may be behind the inspiration for making these pieces.   I was also sent a couple of the cute Quilted Coasters in the Dragonfly pattern.  I have one of these set on my desk for my drinks, they are so colorful and compact instead of the other bulky coasters that we use around the house.  They are also very durable, which is good because little one is always reaching up on my desk and stealing them from me.  If you are looking for a great gift for that special someone, Boardwalk Candles is definitely the place to get something great for that hard to buy for person.  They also do custom orders and all of their quilts are handcrafted with care using 100% cotton and in a smoke-free environment.
