BIG News!!

Good morning sunshine and happy Monday!! Ok, so today is a big day because I have some super exciting news to share. And I’ve actually been keeping this news a secret since March, so the fact that I can finally talk about it today feels a little surreal. But here goes…..I’M LAUNCHING A SIGNATURE CANDLE WITH ANTIQUE CANDLE CO. You guys, there’s going to be a Sarah Joy candle. EEEEEK!

Is this real life right now?! Because it sure as heck feels like a dream. As a self-professed candle connoisseur, I have always wanted to create my own candle and I can’t believe it’s finally happening. The Sarah Joy signature fragrance will be released THIS FALL.

If you’ve been around for a while, you know that I’ve been in love with Antique Candle Co for years now. I’ve shared them countless times here on the blog and I even had the chance to visit the candle studio out in Indiana earlier this year. To say I love these candles and this sweet company would be a huge understatement. It’s an incredible honor to have this opportunity!

We Need Your Input!

Over the past several months I’ve been testing out SO many delicious smelling candles in search of the yummiest fall scent ever. I’ve tried pumpkin candles, spiced candles, apple candles and even COFFEE candles. I’ve personally narrowed it down to my top choices, but now we need 1,000 candle testers to try them out! If you want to be a candle tester, head over to this page and sign up. It’s totally free! If selected to be a candle tester, you’ll get an email TOMORROW morning and the sample candles will be sent your way. We can’t wait to get your input!

I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for supporting my blog over the past several years. THIS opportunity is because of you. Truly, without your support none of this would be possible for me. I thank God every single day for this blog and for all of you. I hope you know how truly grateful I am!

I’ll definitely be sharing more news on my candle release as fall gets closer!! Stay tuned my sweet friends. The best fall candle ever is coming soon!! xoxo

  4. Hi Sarah

    The link to sign up to be a candle tester seems to be not working. It just spins and spins.

    I would like to test out your candle. I burn candles every day.

    Thank you,

    Hi Sarah! I am new to your blog. Found you through Pinterest and Iโ€™ve been reading as much as I can to catch up on your blog. You are such an inspiration! On a side note, your fiddle leaf fig tree will do just fine if you leave it in one spot and only water it exactly one cup of water at exactly one time a week. Haha Iโ€™ve had one for over a year now and I read somewhere to do that and it has been growing very well. I think they just really dislike change. So happy to be a new follower. Canโ€™t wait to see whatโ€™s in store for you!
    Thank you! Shannon
