Suze & Tanya Love Emma's So Naturals Soy Candles & Giveaway

Emma's So Naturals Eco Soy Candles is a great online shop. Emma makes healthy candles. She uses high quality Eco Soya Wax which is free from pesticides and herbicides. Her candles contain only the purest essential oils and they are free from parabens, paraffin, artificial dies and synthetic fragrances. Emma uses natural ingredients that she sources locally. Her candles are environmentally conscious and they are also absolutely wonderful.

Emma doesn't only offer an incredible range of candles and tart melts, she also has an amazing selection of gift sets in every price category. They make such good gifts.

Tanya has reviewed some of Emma's products. She received a lovely package from Emma.

Review by Tanya

The package, before I even opened it, smelt fantastic. It contained two candles and one wax melt.  The candles were Lemon Grass and Lavender and the wax melt was citrus blend.

The candles are in a gorgeous tin with the instructions clearly on the outside advising you to trim the wick to 5mm each time before you melt it. Each candle can last up to 20 hours, so they are a great buy. I admit to firstly burning the lemongrass as I have a love for all things citrus and have now put this in the bedroom as the smell is divine and so refreshing. A friend that has recently visited asked where the delicious smell came from even though the candle was not lit at the time. It’s a light scent that is slightly flowery.

The lavender speaks for itself in its smell. My youngest daughter likes this one the best as she likes lavender very much. The smell travels all around the house even though it is only ever lit for one hour a time to make it last a little longer.

 My favourite one is the citrus blend wax melt, because of the citrus in combination with a scent that reminded me of lemon cake. It is one of those scents that is suitable for all rooms of the house including the kitchen. I have to admit to sneaking the wax melt upstairs into the bedroom as I burn it most nights. My bedroom smells fantastic even without it burning and the scent has lasted a long time.

I love the fact that the candles are all eco-friendly and handmade. Emma says in her literature that I received with the candles that “we are passionate about using natural ingredients to provide cleaner, healthier alternative products for people everywhere to enjoy”. I appreciate the passion shown and the enthusiasm to look after the environment. I can definitely see myself buying some of these as a gift. Thank you Emma for sending me the samples.

We highly recommend Emma's So Naturals, it's a fantastic brand with a great vision, beautiful packaging and delicious scents. 

All packaging can be reused and there are several different options to choose from. Check out this fantastic online store. Enjoy browsing and have fun shopping!

One very lucky reader of my blog will receive a fabulous prize:

The winner of this giveaway will receive an oil burner gift set with a burner, two tart melts and six wax tealights and a tin candle. Good luck!

I will contact the winner via e-mail. If I don't get a reply within 60 hours the prize will go to someone else. All of my giveaways are international, you can find the official rules here.

Australia Week: Suze Loves Rocklily Wombats! & Giveaway

I love Rocklily Wombats, a shop filled with the most amazing Australian animal themed products.

Dianna, the owner of the shop, sells jewelry from several fantastic Australian brands like Allegria and Erstwilder.

Besides jewelry there are art prints, postcards, kitchen linen, hats and cookie cutters.

Everything looks really cute and pretty.

I love animal themed items and think the selection is amazing.

I also think that the prices are really reasonable.

I've purchased from this shop and Dianna is really kind and helpful.

I think Rocklily Wombat's wombat and wildlife refuge & rehabilitation centre is great. I've interviewed Dianna, you can read more about what she does when you click the link to my post.

The profits of the sales go to the animals Dianna and her husband are taking care of, I think that's wonderful.

This shop is filled with beautiful quality products.

 I love the idea of having a shop that's focused on animal themed jewelry and other accessories.

Everything looks gorgeous and cheerful.

Dianna's selection of items is really impressive.

I'm completely in love with them.

This shop is the perfect place to buy something for animal lovers.

Dianna started selling at markets, but when life at the centre became really busy she decided to start selling online instead.

I'm glad she's doing that as it gives people from all over the world a chance to buy stunning Australian jewelry.

There's something for every budget which is something I also like. The jewelry ranges from simple to luxurious.

 Check out this fantastic shop.

Enjoy browsing...

And have fun shopping! And if you mention you visited via my blog when you're purchasing something you will get a lovely surprise.

One very lucky winner of my blog will receive an amazing prize:

This beautiful Allegria wombat necklace and Wilber wombat postcard will be for the winner of the giveaway. Good luck!

  I will contact the winner on twitter or via email. If I don't get a reply within 60 hours the prize will go to someone else. All of my giveaways are international.

Australia Week: Suze Loves Colour Streams! & Giveaway

I love Colour Streams. The hand dyed ranges of silk embroidery threads, ribbons and fabrics, Merino hand dyed wool tops, felting fibres and specialty hand dyed yarns and embellishments are fantastic. It's heaven for anyone who likes to work with fabric.

There are packs filled with the most beautiful materials and it's possible to buy them separately as well.

Everything looks gorgeous and the owner of the shop, Robyn, has such a great sense of style.

For those who don't want to make something from scratch there are kits. The bauble necklaces for example are absolutely stunning.

I also love the various kits for bags and purses as well.

Everything is colorful, cheerful and elegant.

I like the additional joy of the result; wearing an accessory you've made yourself.

The possibilities with the supplies that are for sale in this shop are endless and the results look amazing.

Robyn's workshops are fantastic and people in Australia can sign up for them. Fortunately there are also plenty of online tutorials for those who won't be able to attend.

On YouTube there are several really great videos.

There are plenty of patterns for sale on the website as well.

This site is the place to shop for felters and fabric artists.

There are so many great projects to choose from and they all have a different difficulty level, so even if you are a beginner you'll be able to make some of the things that are for sale on this website. Robyn's step by step instructions are easy to follow.

Robyn's products are being stocked in a lot of shops in Australia and they can also be found in the USA, Canada and New Zealand.

Check out this fantastic store filled with plenty of brilliant designs.

There's something for every budget.

Have fun shopping!

The baubles necklaces and earrings can be worn as a set, so if you buy a kit to make a necklace it's a great idea to also purchase the earrings.

They look really great together.

Robyn has an amazing prize for the readers of my blog:

She will give away three sets to make a pair of beautiful baubles earrings.They're fantastic and suitable for any skill level. Good luck!
