Hi friends! Today is my birthday. 🙂 Anddd I happen to have a gift for YOU! Or at least, a chance to win a gift. How fun!
Earlier in April, my blogging friend Wendy from A Day in the Life on the Farm hooked me up some great products from her daughter and son-in-law’s new business, Petoskey and Pine. Petoskey and Pine specializes in “artisanal handmade bath products,” so think soaps, candles, lip balm, etc. I was able to try one of their lovely soy slow burning candles and some lip balm. Both products were heavenly! I was sent their Toasted Coconut candle and let me just say… amazing! The scent is fantastic–just like a batch of coconut toasting in your oven. It’s light and long lasting, and makes me crave coconut. 🙂 I also got to try a lemongrass lip balm. What a creative flavor, huh? I love anything lemon so this is perfect for me. The lip balm goes on smooth and is perfect for soothing your lips. Mmm!
Though I received these products for review, I am so impressed with them that I’d love to purchase some for myself or for gifts. They’re luxurious, crafted from quality and natural ingredients, and are well made. Now I want to try their soap! And lucky you, you could win some for yourself, your Mom, or a friend. Check out the giveaway below! 🙂

Disclosure: I received a complimentary candle and lip balm to try and review from Petoskey and Pine. I did not receive any other compensation for this post, and was not paid to publish positive comments. My opinions are my own.
