Monday suck-day, take 21!

Monday, March 23, 2009

Can we skip through all of the why-my-Monday sucks stuff today, and get right to the giveaway? That's how bad my morning has been. Sounds pretty serious right? I guess its more of a bad Sunday afternoon extending into my early Monday morning routine. It all kind of blends together. Ibuprofen to the rescue? That and a good dose of reality check. My body hates me. I can't eat anything. Poor me. Wah wah wah....

Over the past couple of weeks I've gotten all sorts of buddy-buddy with Raven Moon Herbal and Arts. A super sexy belly dancin' mama, who owns her own shop and sells her own crafts. Seriously, can you say badass? Well whether you're fond of my potty mouthed yet flattering name calling or not, I'm sure you'll be interested in winning one of her Blackberry Sage candles. How good does that sound? The last time I dove into a candle frenzy was in October, so I've got a drawer full of cinnamon this and apple pumpkin that. A spring scented Berry candle sounds like just what I need. And maybe just what you need too?

Introducing, the rules:
-Visit Raven Moon Herbal and Arts. Click on "products". Browse over said products. Leave a comment here telling us what you liked, and why.
-Contest is open to US only. If you do not have a blogger account, please make sure to leave a name and email in case you win! Giveaway ends Friday at midnight, any entries posted after that time will not be qualified (sorry, but we have to cut off somewhere). Winner will be announced on next Monday's suck-day post.

Additional single entries:
-Tell us why Mondays suck, in 20 words or more.
-Follow my blog, by clicking the "Follow" button on the left hand side of the screen, and then let me know you've done so. If you already follow, make sure to speak up so I don't count you out :)
-Blog about this giveaway, complete with links and pictures on your blog. Comment here with your link.

Good luck with the suck!

Congratulations to last weeks suck-day winner, Miriama!

I like her HOneysuckle candle, it reminds me of my childhood, we had a big honeysuckle bush on our playground at school.

My Monday sucks because I am suffering from a bad Sunday spilling into a perfectly innocent Monday too!

I follow already.

texasheartland March 23, 2009 at 9:14 AM  

I really liked the Flutterby's Garden Sign because it is unique and very creative.

I understand about Mondays thought. Once again, I am having a "from hell" kind of Monday. I hope yours gets better!

First off, Mondays always suck! I just ran out of diapers.Now I have to drag 2 toddlers to the store, and diapers are ridiculously expensive. Grrrrrr! I like the soy candles. I was wishing I could scratch and sniff! LOL!
Hope your day improves!

Cinnamon Buns Soy Wax Candle-i've always loved cinnamon

cdziuba March 23, 2009 at 10:44 AM  

I like the Honeysuckle Soy Wax Jar Candle 12oz!
Price: US$10.00

I like it because it burns clean, and the scent is one of my faves.

cdziuba March 23, 2009 at 10:46 AM  

Tell us why Mondays suck, in 20 words or more: Mondays suck because my husband has to go back to work and I like it so much more when he's home. He does lots of cooking and helps me out with the kids.

Zu-Li Designs March 23, 2009 at 11:47 AM  

I like the apple candle mmmmmm. I'm already a happy follower! And Mondays suck because I want to be outside playing but I'm stuck inside at work. boo.

I'd like the Tiger Print Fingerless Gloves because I have Raynaud's disease and regular gloves make it hard to do simple things like type.

I like the Hazelnut candle. I love the smell of hazelnuts because it's sweet, with a buttery tone. It's even better in the form of a hazelnut coffee drink~

SillyLittleLady March 23, 2009 at 1:43 PM  

I like the "Follow Your Dreams Earrings" They are exactly the right length, shape, color, texture, everything is perfectly something I would definitely wear :)

lisagee March 23, 2009 at 2:00 PM  

Honeysuckle Soy Wax Jar Candle is my choice because I grew up by Honeysuckle flowers in my neighborhood and always loved the scent of them.
Where are they today?

deedleweedle March 23, 2009 at 2:50 PM  

I like the Cinnamon Buns Soy Wax Candle!

deedleweedle March 23, 2009 at 2:51 PM  

Mondays suck because my break from homeschooling is over. I also have to take my daughter to a music academy in the evening and I get home and have to immediately make dinner.

kendra22 March 23, 2009 at 4:20 PM

Houston March 23, 2009 at 7:12 PM  

Mondays suck because its the first day of the week after a elaxing weekend.

ky2here March 23, 2009 at 7:47 PM  

My favorite would be the Hazelnut Soywax Candle because that scent always makes me smile.

Mondays suck because the weekend disappeared too damn quickly.

Beverley March 23, 2009 at 7:54 PM  

I like the Eternal Spiral Earrings Feat. Iolite because they would look so good on me!

jdine March 23, 2009 at 8:18 PM  

I like the Honeysuckle Soy Wax Jar Candles because the smell reminds me of summertime as a child.

WHAVegan March 23, 2009 at 9:09 PM  

I like the honeysuckle bandle because one of my favorite memories with my dad is hiking at Shenandoah National Park through meadows where they grew, and we'd always taste the delicious nectar they produce. Mmmm.

mom2anutball March 23, 2009 at 10:45 PM

Brittany March 23, 2009 at 11:26 PM  

First off, I love candles. They are burning in my house constantly. I saw so many great sounding (and smelling!) candles on her website, the most appealing to me was Blackberry Sage Soy Wax Jar Candle. Not only do I love candles, but I follow a vegan lifestyle and therefore only get soy candles! As for the Monday...I spent last week on my honey moon, got food poisoning, was still sick today and had to go to school for 11 hours!! ouch!

cstironkat March 23, 2009 at 11:50 PM  

Product name: Be Yourself Earrings would be my choice. I truly believe this saying and I always add because no-one else is better qualified. I have this written in lipstick on my mirror.

cstironkat March 23, 2009 at 11:52 PM  

Monday sucks because it is cold and rainy, everyone is crabby and I hate wiping the dogs' paws when they come in from outside.

Meredith March 24, 2009 at 2:32 AM  

I like the "Funky Cat Booties" because I love the pink cat on them!

This Monday sucked because I had to go to the ER for severe pain due to Endometriosis.

hybridhopes March 24, 2009 at 3:07 AM  

if it were fall, i'd say that fine pomegranate candle.
since it's spring, and my honeysuckle plant that a friend got me is starting to send up it's tendrils, and because it smells divine, imma have to go with honeysuckle.

and i cannot express how much i had a hard time not shouting to my patient I DO NOT CARE WHO YOU ARE, EVERYONE GETS TREATED EQUALLY today. I HATE namedroppers who think they are the shit just because of someone they know or whatever. raarrrrrrrrrr.

p.s. pick me. p.p.s. today's not that bad because now i have my days off.

hybridhopes March 24, 2009 at 3:12 AM  

I posted on hybridhopes: here. and i follow you via the links on the side of my blog. i can't make myself be a "follower" on blogger 'cause it feels weird. i just read the blog whenever i see a new post show up on my blog, and i check it from time to time in case i missed something.

I like the Cinnamon Buns Soy Wax Candle (12oz).
I'm sure it would make me hungry, just smelling this candle. Yummy

sphinx63 March 24, 2009 at 6:09 AM  

I like the Aches & Pains Be Gone Heating packs, because my back is always aching, and maybe that would help!

For me, I think Mondays suck in general because my Sundays are typically a lot less hectic. I don't have to take the kids to school, don't have to pick them up. It's just an easier day in comparison.

Mondays just always suck because you have two days of freedom with your significant other and friends and then back to the grindstone again, and since almost everyone feels that way, there aren't many happy people on Monday. Thank you!

Gabriel J. March 24, 2009 at 9:15 PM

Valeta March 25, 2009 at 9:38 AM  

Aside from all the candles (which I love) I like the "be yourself" earrings. Everyone should be their authentic selves.

littlelatina March 25, 2009 at 10:47 AM

darlanpaulsmamma March 25, 2009 at 2:01 PM  

I would have to go with the Honeysuckle candle. My husband has been talking about how much he misses the smell of honeysuckle since we dont have it around our house since we moved.

I like the Cinnamon Buns candle. I have a little obsession with the ice cream from Ben and Jerry's. I figure I can get my fix by sniffing the candle...hehe. It is a healthier option.

The honeysuckle candle really struck me because that scent always reminds me of my childhood and playing outdoors.

CAmom04 March 27, 2009 at 7:07 PM  

I am going to choose the Pomegranate Soy Wax Jar Candle as my favorite product. I was going to choose the Cinnamon Buns flavor but then I realized that if I had a candle in my house that not only smelled good, but DELICIOUS, then I would definitely gain weight?

"How?!?!" you may inquire. Well... The Cinnamon Buns flavor would probably make me crave an actual cinnamon bun. I would insist on driving out (day or night) to find and then eat a warm and gooey cinnamon bun, thus causing a definite spread to my waist line. Overall, bad idea!

On the other hand, the lovely pomegranate would allow me to inhale deeply and enjoy the scent of the candle and the peace and quiet surrounding me (I have four kids, so anything that has me imagining peace and quiet is a good thing!) Ahhhh... relaxation, peace AND quiet? Pomegranate is definitely the scent of choice!

Karen March 27, 2009 at 7:20 PM  

i like the hazelnut soy candle. I love hazelnut coffee and I sure this would smell just as yummy. Thanks for the great giveaway.

Randall D Busby March 27, 2009 at 8:35 PM  

Since I am getting older I would go for Aches & Pain Be Gone Large Heating Packs.
