Jackpot Candles review + giveaway

Jackpot candles are made with 100 percent natural soy that create a long-lasting flame and aroma. The scents range from fresh baked holiday cookies and pies to the fresh, clean scent of flowers. Each Jackpot Candle offers a foil-wrapped jewelry item inside valued between $15 and $5,000. My Jack Frost candle smells of peppermint and revealed a pair of cute blue earrings. You get the choice of a pair of earrings, a ring or a necklace inside your candle.

Enter to win a Jackpot Candle in the scent of your choice and the jewelry style of your choosing. Tweet me at @MargauxOnline with a link to this post for a chance to win. The giveaway closes March 3 at 11:59 p.m. (central). I'll announce one winner on Wednesday, March 4!
