Old Factory Candle Gift Set & a Giveaway!

**Disclaimer: I have received products to try from Old Factory Candles & am simply sharing my personal opinion which may vary from yours. I was not compensated for this review.
I consider myself a candle snob of sorts. If there's even one issue with a candle, like not burning evenly or the scent disappears after just one lighting, I silently vow to never buy that brand again. On the contrary, if I love the candle, not only do I burn them every chance I get, but I gift them to my friends & family too.

Old Factory Candles are definitely my kind of candles! These candles are hand-poured in the US with natural soy wax. They contain a self-trimming cotton paper wick & boast 20 hours of even burn time. Which is pretty impressive for their 2oz. size. But what's more impressive are the scents created from the premium fragrance oils used. And of course they smell amazing every time you light the wick. 

The Winter Wonderland Gift Set contains Roasted Chestnut, First Snow & (my favorite) Hot Cocoa scented candles. I even opted for the gift wrapping from Amazon, to see for myself how it would make the perfect gift for anyone, anywhere. 

Winter Wonderland not your kind of scents? Well don't worry because there's also Fall Harvest, Happy Holidays, Romance, Fresh & Clean, Spa Day, Vacation, Coffee Shop, Man Cave, High as a Kite, New Born Baby & 50 Shades Gift Sets. (All sold exclusively on Amazon.)

LG OLED TV is a Great Gift from Best Buy #HintingSeason

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

These days, technology is always big on holiday wish lists. At least in my house it is. And while my 8 year old may be a bit disappointed that she's not going to get a phone or a laptop, she may actually get a TV. On one condition, it would technically be for everybody. 

We're in the market to upgrade our TV & I have to admit that all of the options out there make my head spin. I actually like to go to Best Buy, tell them what it is I want (in no technological terms of course) & then have them show me what it is I want. It drives my hubs crazy since I'm always wanting to go to Best Buy, but it helps me stay up to date with what's on the market that I'd actually be interested in. (Not to mention it's saved us from buying something that was quite the opposite of what we wanted.) Well luckily for him, I don't actually need to go to Best Buy to have someone point out which model of TV I want. 

What is OLED TV?
The stunning design of LG OLED TV is only 0.21" thick at its thinnest point. Picture quality is spectacular, with Infinite Contrast that ranges from the most blazing whites to the deepest blacks. And, LG's exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology delivers bright, vibrant colors. Learn more
Your first kiss. A baby's first steps. The majesty of a desert sunset. Some things in life defy all explanation and must be experienced to be believed. Such is the case with LG's latest display technology. With deeper and richer colors, stunning contrast and ingeniously curved screens, it is unlike any technology you've ever seen, and it delivers a picture that exceeds your wildest imagination.
       •Infinite contrast ratio and stunning color - delivers more natural, lifelike viewing.
 •4 Color Pixel technology enhances color range and accuracy.
       •Super thin design (consider how to show visually)
        •Find content faster with webOS

 The LG OLED TV just blows my mind! Not only is the thinnest point equivalent to the thickness of a pencil, but the curved design would mean that there would be no more arguing over "prime" seating in our living room. And don't even get me started on the webOS! Netflix binges, dance tutorials on YouTube & shopping on Amazon from the comfort of my living room?! I think this would make the perfect gift for myself...I mean Paige. The perfect gift for Paige. *wink wink*
