12 Days of Deals – Day 2 FREE Triple Wick Candle in Mocha Merrymint or Pass The Rum Cake

It’s Day 2 of our 12 Days of Deals over at the eBoutique and this one is a GOOD ONE!  You can choose between Pass The Rum Cake or Mocha Merrymint triple wick candle for free with a $50 order.  These are 2 of the top candles I wanted from the holiday candle collection.

12 Days of Deals – Day 2:  Complimentary Candle and Free Shipping on orders $50+ with promo code RUM (for Pass The Rum Cake) or MOCHA (for Mocha Merrymint)

Word of Alicia:  If you haven’t tried our candles yet, now is the perfect time… I mean when is a free candle not a good time? They’re VERY comparable to Bath and Body Works and the new holiday scents are 2/$25 which is a far better deal.  The holiday lineup includes Mocha Merrymint, Pass The Rum Cake, The Perfect Pine, Cinnamon Spice and All Things Nice, and A Very Berry Holiday.  This Day 2 Promo is a $20 value so if I were building a $50 order to get the free candle here’s what I’d choose.  Because there are 2 candle options I built 2 orders:

Order 1 for Pass The Rum Cake Candle:

Both these candles I want for myself so I built and order for me/yourself.  The holiday season requires a few must-haves, a red lip, holiday makeup and some festive glam jewelry to spice up the LBD.  My FAVORITE red lip this year is the Icon Avon Lipstick in Crimson Carnation, it’s the perfect holiday red in my favorite nourishing formula that helps battle dry lips.  With your red lip you’re going to need some holiday makeup and the Dream In Color Eye Palette is my TOP pick.  (check out my IG Highlights under Holiday to see what I mean!)  New arrivals just launched today including this new A Box which includes a bronze Glimmerstick eyeliner, a neutral cream blush, a Crave lipgloss and a purse size Live Out Loud fragrance.  These would complete your holiday beauty looks all for only $10!  Every season some fun festive jewelry is a must.  Its an inexpensive way to dress up your look for the holidays and still feel special.  I’m really digging this Red Deco set that’s currently buy one get one free!  You could swap in the cocktail ring if that’s more your jam.  This order is a little more than 50 at $60.99 but its worth $131.97!  $60 and you’re SET for getting ready this holiday season and you get a yummy candle to set the mood… done!

Order 2 for Merry Mochamint Candle:

Even though these candles would make excellent gifts esp as a hostess gift, teacher gift, girlfriend gift, etc… I want it for myself.  Also on my want list is this lounge set and smoking slippers so this order is again me getting something for me.  However, this would also make a great gift because The Here To Slay Lounge Set is good year round and can be worn casually too.  Paired with the Slay Smoking Slipper and the new A Box and the candle and you have yourself a gift that “slays”… see what I did there haha.  Either way get it for yourself or get it for someone else and get the free candle because this order comes in at $59.98 but valued at $111.97!  

REMEMBER I’m here to be your personal shopper.  These orders not quite what you want but you want that free candle, let me help curate one that is!  You want to gift this to someone, I can expertly gift wrap it, include a free holiday card and get it to your recipient in time to glisten under the tree.  Just hit me up!  aliciahess1 @ gmail.com or DM on Instagram @wordofalicia or leave a comment on this post and I’ll reach out.

Word of Alicia: Haiku is one of fav fragrances from Avon. It’s clean and light perfect for day. The notes read; Top: Japanese yuzu Middle: Delicate muguet Bottom: Blonde woods.  This is a $25 value, so if I was building a $50 order for gift giving to get this $25 free product, this is what I’d build:

Haiku Inspired Order Idea

Haiku Inspired Order Idea

“Find your Zen with the Haiku Collection.  The calming and clean notes of Haiku Eau de Parfum bloom in harmony to create a fresh floral that evokes the serenity of a Japanese garden.”  To match this Japanese calming zen vibe I would build an order featuring trendy K Beauty, self-care staples, and some fun new beauty to excite.  Avon Glimmershadow in Jade (seen here) is a pale green shade that would be super fun for the holidays especially paired with the rest of the beauty in this order.  The A Box this campaign features a pretty pink lip shade that would wear really nice with Jade, in addition to a basic black liner and mascara and a fun exclusive choker necklace (seen here).  With our collaboration with The Face Shop I would add in some K Beauty and Skincare with the trendy cushion highlighter and Rice Water Foaming Face Wash (personal favorite and great value!).  To finish off the bundle I’d add in the matching Haiku Skin Softener (cross between a body lotion and a body cream) and a triple wick candle in Serenity (clearance price of only $9.99!).  For $53.97 you are getting $131.99 worth of product! I would definitely like to receive this haul on Christmas morning, I’ll tell you that!  Just put all these items together in a decorative box, tie up with a pretty ribbon, and you’re all set for gift giving.
