Pink Zebra Sprinkles

I was asked to test Pink Zebra Sprinkles by my friend Christi. She gave me several different scents to try, and I can say I was not disappointed. I use a Better Homes and Gardens warmer, and have been using the wax cubes from Wal-Mart. I like the variety of scents and the price of the Wal-Mart cubes, but they don’t last long. It seems like they only last 2 days or so with a good strong scent, then they’re just kinda meh.¬†Enter Pink Zebra Sprinkles.

I wasn’t given huge amounts to sample, which worked out well because I think I would have totally used too much. It really doesn’t take much of the sprinkles, (maybe a teaspoon?) and the scent lasts longer than the cubes! Another cool feature of the sprinkles is you can mix scents. I used the Farm House Cider one for 3-4 days and when I noticed the scent wasn’t as strong as it was originally, I added 6 little cinnamon sprinkles, and boom…Cinnamon Apple Cider. And the scents are ridiculously spot on. For instance, you know how peach scented stuff usually has that artifical peachy smell that is too sweet? The peach scented Pink Zebra Sprinkles smell like you’ve just bit into a super ripe, juicy, delicious peach. Seriously…it’s crazy how accurate the scents are. Overall, I am really pleased with the sprinkles, and look forward to trying more scents. If you don’t already have your own warmer, they have a nice variety of styles to fit your decor, and just like the sprinkles…they can be mix & matched. They also have some cool reed diffusers that I really want to check out.

If you’d like to order some for yourself, or if you’d like more information, check out Christi’s Pink Zebra Sprinkles page or contact her directly at: christi.dobson6@gmail.com
And…last but not least, she is running a special that if you spend $50 or more before tax/shipping, you will get one free jar of sprinkles and be entered into a raffle for a FREE base, liner and shade combo!

Saving $$…yeah!!

So the holiday season is upon us and we could all use a little extra money for gifts, travel, charity, etc. As a family of 6, we go through mass quantities of stuff. I like to buy in bulk, but we don’t have those types of stores close to where we live. So…I’ll let you in on a secret. Well, not really a secret, but an app that I really like. It’s called Boxed. (I am including my referral code so you can save $20 on your first order, and I get a $10 credit when you order.) Boxed is like those warehouse type stores as in most of the stuff is in mass quantities and you get good prices…plus it gets delivered right to your door! Let me give you an example of some things I ordered today. *Note: Retail price listed is according to the Boxed app, and the Amazon price is what I saw this morning.

Frosted Mini Wheats 70 oz. – Boxed: $9.49 Retail: $19.60 Amazon: $21.59
Austin Cookies & Crackers 36 pk – Boxed $8.99 Retail: $13.68 Amazon: $12.49
BelVita Cinnamon Brown Sugar 25 4ct packs – Boxed: $12.49 Retail: $24.25 Amazon $20.45
Mrs. Meyer’s All Purpose Cleaner Lemon Verbena 64 oz. – Boxed: $15.49 Retail: $17.28 Amazon: $22.99

I’m not going to bore you with my entire list, but note that if you order over $100 you qualify for free shipping…which saves you an additional $10 I believe. I think it’s also worth mentioning that they offer discounts often and I’ve received random credits in my account that I still have no idea what they are for…for instance, when I went to check out today I had a $15 credit in my account. Not sure why it was there, but a free $15? I’m not going to question it. ;) So if you’d like to check out Boxed, here is the link to the Boxed website, the iphone app, android app, and their Facebook & Twitter accounts…along with my referral code: H4MPI so you can research it for yourself!

*NOTE* I was not compensated for this blog post in any way, aside from my promoting my referral link…I just wanted to share something I feel is a great find with you all.
