black & light: Simply Sophisticated Candles - Giveaway

Saturday, June 12, 2010 Posted by One 2 Try


I love the glow of candles. I like the way it makes a room feel warm and inviting. To me a candle should be gorgeous even while not burning. The candle should reflect the room's decor and be a work of art in itself. black & light: simply sophisticated candles, understands the beauty of candles.

A little background of black & light: Holly - the candle artisan behind the designs of black & light, started her family business by sharing her design ideas with a candle maker she had met. A partnership was born. A spark ignites passion.... Working off an 'inspiration' that would not go away, Holly Eve pursued her dream. Her passion brought to life black & light® co. to "share the glow" on a national level.

The candles of black & light are simply spectacular. The designs are so fresh and artistic. The newest style to the collection are hand painted with gorgeous bright flowers adorning each candle in lovely spring colors. I adore the Dot and Curls selections. The dots are so much fun in a variety of colors to match your decor. Not only are all the candle designs wonderful to look at when placed in your home, what makes black & light candles especially lovely is when they are lit. The candles glow from top to bottom! Once lit, the glow literally bursts from every angle of the candle, and even out through the bottom.


Courtesy of black & light, I was able to choose a candle perfect for me. From my favorite collection, Inspirational, I selected the laugh candle. My first impression is of the packaging. My candle arrived so carefully packaged. My gift box came wrapped in black tissue paper for a very classy presentation. The gift box itself is a work of art. My candle was delicately placed in a flip top designer box with artwork on the lid. Inside was my beautiful candle. A nice touch was they also included a box of matches. Little touches like that make a huge impression. About my candle: The word "laugh" is engraved into the bottom of the 4" pillar. When my candle is lit, laugh glows as if jumping off the candle. The effects are much more striking in a dimly lit room. It makes me smile each time I see it. The 4" candle will burn approx. 60 hours. I also love that they are fragrance free. They do not interfere with the aroma of home cooked meals, perfume, fresh cut flowers or create allergic reactions for people or their pets. With the stunning designs of these candles, you really do not miss the fragrance. It is all about the glow!

black & light gives back to many causes. I love that! Each candle is packaged and shipped by workers with disabilities, thus creating jobs in a tough economy. They have partnered with the University of California Davis and their critical research on the honeybee crisis. 10% of the net proceeds of the Bee Candle sales is donated to the University's research. black & light also supports Airline Ambassadors International, a group that helps underprivileged children and families across the globe. black & light co. donates a portion from the sale of each of its ‘Inspirational’ candles directly to A.A.I. black & light is truly sharing the glow from inside!

The lovely candles are available to purchase at select retail locations and directly online. If you purchase 3 or more candles - you get free shipping! They are also offering a summer discount code for 20% off - use code SUNNY85. Once you see the gorgeous glow, you will be back for more.
