| CHRISTMAS PRIZEAPOLOOZA 2019 | Pop Up Succulents this Christmas!

One of the the greatest little businesses that I have discovered since having this blog is the amazing Pop Up Succulent Shop. 

Owned and operated by the incredibly wonderful Renelle, Pop Up Succulent Shop has got me obsessed with all things succulent!! 

Located in Bathurst Pop Up Succulent Shop offers unique arrangements, wreaths, Kokedamas and terrariums. She can help you decorate your wedding or party and creates the most magnificent gifts. 

My most favourite thing about Pop Up Succulent Shop are the workshops. These are great opportunities to learn some new skills while creating your very own masterpiece. 

I will forever remember my first workshop with Renelle, my eyes were open to so much succulent knowledge in a friendly, fun environment. I took my mum and we both had the best afternoon.

| CHRISTMAS PRIZEAPOLOOZA 2019 | Firefly your way into Christmas

This is one of my absolute favourite businesses in this year’s giveaway, in fact, I am smelling one of her incredible candles as I type this!

Firefly Earth is owned and operated by the gorgeous Trudey Bailey and offers pure soy triple scented candles.

Firefly was born 10 years ago, when Trudey’s baby was 11 months old and after a trip to Canada to visit family, Trudey noticed just how many homes she visited had candles burning. The candle culture was massive in the northern hemisphere, and she says she was all in after that trip.

Trudey says the problem she faced back in Australia was that if she wanted a triple scented candle that packed a fragrance punch, she could only find them in paraffin. Australia had various ranges of soy candles but the fragrance seemed to be a little light on. Trudey says she didn’t feel comfortable burning paraffin around her baby so decided to create her own!

The thing that sets Firefly Earth apart is the brilliant business strategy. She has streamlined all her products to make it so much easier for consumers. Some companies may offer up to 30 different fragrance’s which is great for consumers who love bulk choice. Trudey says that after observing her sale trends over the years she made the decision to take more of a minimalistic approach and not overwhelm the bejesus out of her customers. Trudey says she quickly realised that it didn’t matter what she offered up, her customers always returned to the top 3 sellers. Angels Milk, Bondi & French Pear.

Having said that, this year she is offering a super special Christmas edition candle! It’s called Christmas Caramel, its the Angel’s Milk Blend with swirls of hot salted caramel notes. You won’t regret purchasing that one!

{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2018} A Christmas of Petite Sculpture

Petite Sculptures is a home based studio that provides framed hand and feet castings of babies up to 3 months old.  

It is so easy to forget just how small your little ones are so this is a great way to remember their tiny little fingers and toes.

Petite Sculptures can be made with or without a photo and commemorative birth certificates can also be framed. Donna has been creating memories for parents for over four years. 

Petite Sculptures also offers Angel baby frames for any age as well a memorial paw frames for dogs and cats. 

One of the amazing things about Petite Sculptures is that she has teamed up with the Simon Williams Memorial Charity to provide free of cost angel baby memorial frames to grieving families. They can be for babies still born (from about 20 weeks) or for older children. She will travel to Lithgow or Orange to take the moulds. It really is a beautiful keepsake for families who are brokenhearted. 

What sets Petite Sculptures apart is that Donna ensures she is really flexible to help her customers, there is no rush as appointments and the whole process is calm and fun!
