Amour Scents Review!

Image
I am sure by now you have seen all about the candles with jewelry in them. I know that I have and this time I was lucky enough to be able to review one! I was able to pick a scent from Amour Scents.


I choose Apple Pie{Sweet sugar and tart apples are indulgent and comforting to the senses and will surround you the warmth of home, no matter where you are.} and this scent is amazing. I had it lit on Christmas Day and everyone that walked in wanted to know what I was making with apples. When I showed them the Amour Scents Candle they could not believe that it was coming from that.


This is not some little candle either,it is a 17 ozs. so this will last longer then the regular ones we get at the store.


Once you start burning the candle~there is a surprise inside of a piece of jewelry! They have placed a beautiful premium 925 Sterling Silver ring, earring or pendant inside each candle, each of them valued between $10 and $5000. Each gift is another symbol of amour for you or for someone y…

Image
Earlier I told you I would be shopping at All Things Christmas And More! Let me tell you,I got a whole bunch of stuff for my gift card that they sent me,and the products are amazing!

3 Different colors of Christmas Electrical Tape{Red,Blue and Green}2-6 Packs of Purple 4" glitter and matte finials2-Two Toned Purple to Blue with Gold Glitter 2.75" Onion 6 pack2 -Battery operated ribbon lights
All the above was under $25.00!! I can't believe that I was able to pick all of that out,and I am so impressed with the quality of the products too.I wish that I was able to get a better picture.


As even though these all look like glass, Surprise these are shatter resistant plastic so I can let the grandchildren help me decorate and not worry about them dropping them and breaking. They will also last longer as I don't know about you,but it seems that every year I find something new broken. I love the purple color,as it is so vibrant and the glitter on the ornaments is ver…

~Dolphin Tale 2~

This great movie arrives on Blu-Ray Combo Pack,DVD on December 9th from Warner Bros.


The inspiring true story of Winter isn’t over. Several years after receiving a prosthetic tail, Winter loses her surrogate mother, leaving her alone, grieving and unwilling to engage with anyone, even her best human friend, Sawyer. Worse, she may have to be moved from her home at the aquarium due to regulations requiring dolphins to be paired. When Dr. Clay Haskett and his dedicated team can’t find her a companion, it looks like they may lose their beloved Winter...until an unexpected turn of events brings them Hope. We had a chance to watch this awesome movie and I have to say that we really liked it. There was happy,sad and even humor in this true story. This is a great movie from young to old alike will enjoy it. There are not too many movies that you can say that about anymore. You get to really like Winter as she really does have feelings like us. …
