Valentine’s Day is coming up, and while I know the trend of not acknowledging the day as anything other than a normal day is becoming popular, there are still some of us that think its fun. The hubbs and I haven’t done anything specifically special for Valentine’s Day in long while…..although come to think of it we haven’t really done anything particularly special for our anniversary in awhile either. But such is the life of a milspouse or any other spouse that that has someone that travels a lot. Sometimes those specials days are the only days you might have together; But whether its February 17th, or 28th, it doesn’t matter as long as you set aside special time together as a couple. I’m not sure about you all but I’ve noticed that those special days had more meaning and importance once kids come into the picture. It’s not like a need some grand gesture every time, or a huge expensive gift. Sometimes the fun and unique ones are the best.
That’s when I discovered Diamond Candles. If you’ve been on Facebook for longer than half a second you have probably seen pictures of people discovering what is in their candle. I have one friend that is like totally obsessed, and believe me I’ve realized just how awesome it can be. The hubby was skeptical of it, he was expecting something pretty lame. I wasn’t that cynical, but I wasn’t really sure that the ring I got (at any value) would actually be something anyone would want to wear.
I chose the It’s a Boy Candle. What is cool about Diamond Candles is that they have ones that fit within a theme – It’s a Boy/Girl and Love (perfect for weddings or anniversaries). There’s lots of different decor-matching candles, and scents to match any preference. Some of my favorite ones include
Currently there are eleven candles to choose from that are classified as “Ring Candles”. Diamond Candles also offer classic candles, if you really love the smell of your candle but want a cheaper option at only $19.95 (with ten choices). Regular Diamond Candles cost $24.95.
I was obsessed waiting for my ring! It was the most exciting thing waiting for it. Luckily they aren’t that far down, so now I can non-obsessively burn my candle and simply enjoy the smell. The ring I received was a beautiful purple color (my favorite) with small diamond accents. I received the $10.00 ring, and if you aren’t careful the silver looking finish will come off, as with all costume-type jewelry. None the less, its beautiful and I love it.
