Lampe-Berger Canada Giveaway-Canada-April 6/15

This past week I have been sitting here enjoying the nice clean, fresh smell in our home. Of course, I have my Lampe-Berger lamp sitting on the dining room table and it is sending such a nice odor right through the house. I am using the scent Ocean Breeze and its so nice.
How Does It Work?

This purifies the indoor air,destroys undesirable odors such as cooking, tobacco, pet smells, (500 C attracts the malodourless molecules preventing from reproducing.)It diffuses the Home Fragrance (area 200 C less intense to preserve the high quality of the fragrance.)
LAMPE BERGER recommends replacing the burner after 140 hours of diffusion or the use of
7 bottles of 500ml, or 1 year of usage. You will have benefit from 560 hours of fragrancing. Only use Lampe Berger’s lamps, burners and home fragrances to guarantee proper functionality and safety.

THE NEUTRAL ESSENTIAL is a must in every household as it removes unwanted odors,
without fragrancing. Also used to adjust the intensity of a Home Fragrance, by diluting it. Used between two fragrances, the neutral Home Fragrance optimizes the operation of the burner, cleans it and extends its life span.
Here is what the kit looks like when it arrives and how you go about to set it up.

You get the lamp, the scents, the funnel to pour the scent into the lamp and the directions. First you take off the cap and under it will be another cap that you will put back on when you don't want to use it any longer. Once you have the cap off, take out the wick, and using the funnel provided, pour the whole bottle of scent into the lamp. Put the wick back inside, and wait for 20 minutes for the wick to absorb the scent. After the time is up, you light the top,
and let it stay lit like that for 2 minutes and then blow it out. Put the cage-like top back on and sit back and enjoy the scent that will drift through your home. When you think its enough or you are going to bed, just take the cage-like top off and replace the solid top and the cage over it. All done until another day.
Check out the website for Lampe-Berger here
One lucky person is going to win one of these lamps with scents and it probably will be this one or another lamp that is available at the time.
As you may have noticed, I am now a Brand Ambassador with Lampe-Berger Canada which means I will have more of these giveaways and reviews from time to time throughout the year. So if you don't win this time, you just might the next time. So keep watching and good luck to you all.

Farewell Floppy
Benjamin Chaud
It was the perfect plan: abandon pet rabbit Floppy in the woods and take a giant leap toward adulthood. Having a bunny that moonlights as a best friend is for babies, right? It's better to cut a pet loose, make new human friends, and not be so dependent on a floppy-eared fur ball bent on chewing electrical cords, right? If saying good-bye to Floppy is required to grow up, why does life without Floppy seem so wrong? From Benjamin Chaud, the critically acclaimed author/illustrator of The Bear's Song and The Bear's Sea Escape , comes this unforgettable, thought-provoking picture book about the power of unlikely friendships.

As well as drawings to complete, colour and embellish, there are hidden objects to be found along the way including wild flowers, animals and birds, maps, lanterns, keys and treasure chests. Beginning at the entrance to the forest, the journey progresses through woodland, rocky caves and tree-lined mazes, over streams and a waterfall, across the trees tops, to finally reach the castle.

Also hidden throughout the book are eight symbols. Readers must find all the symbols to solve the colouring puzzle on a pull-out poster at the end of the book.
All seven of these books are in this basket.

Slugterra:Slug Fu Showdown-US/CAN-Ends March 12/15

Slugslingers, get ready. It's time to slug it out with a whole new kind of slugslinging!
In Slug Fu Showdown, Eli has added some awesome new slugs to his arsenal: the ELEMENTALS. But the Elemental Slugs are ancient, extremely powerful, and temperamental, and Eli can't control them. Junjie, the newest member of the Shane Gang, has the solution: Eli must learn SLUG FU, the ancient form of slugslinging that Junjie mastered in the Eastern Caverns. Slug Fu is the art of guiding and controlling a slug in battle--a skill that only the greatest slugslingers can master.
But while Eli and Junjie train in isolation, separated from the Shane Gang and all of Eli's slugs, a mysterious new villain named Spirex unleashes an evil plan that will rock Slugterra to its core! All he needs to complete his plan are the Elemental Slugs. Luckily, they're safe with the Shane Gang...or would be, if Pronto hadn't annoyed them so much that they ran away. As Kord, Trixie and Pronto struggle to keep the wily Elementals out of the wrong hands, Eli and Junjie engage in a showdown with Spirex before he can reduce the 99 caverns to rubble!

Slugterra is an epic sci-fi comedy adventure set deep underground, where the ammo's alive and only the quick survive! In this luminous, high-tech, underground world, every cavern holds a new adventure, a new battle and weird little slugs to be discovered. Slugterra was created by Vancouver-based animation studio Nerd Corps Entertainment, which was recently acquired DHX Media Ltd.
Running time approx.44 minutes.

In this clip, Junjie teaches Eli about slug mind control::

Lampe Berger Kit Giveaway-Canada Only-Ends March 2/15

There is nothing better than a nice smelling home while at the same time getting rid of those unwanted odours that seem to collect. Recently I received this lovely Ovalie lamp from Lampe Berger along with the newest scents. The new scents that I received are Fresh Linen, Amber Elegance and Forest Mist and they also have So Neutral and Spring Bouquet. So many wonderful scents to choose from. The Neutral Essential is a must in every household as it removes unwanted odors without fragrancing. Also use to adjust the intensity of a Home Fragrance, by diluting it. Used between two fragrances, the neutral Home Fragrance optimizes the operation of the burner, cleans it and extends its life span.
Lampe Berger purifies the air – giving you better air quality by removing air pollutant molecules. As Canadians, we spend close to 90% of our time indoors. Most people, however, are unaware of the effects that poor indoor air quality can have on their health. All of us have the ability to control the quality of our own indoor air.

The perfuming ritual
It’s so simple...

First, fill your Lampe Berger 2/3 full with your favourite Home Fragrance.

Insert the burner into the lamp, and replace the stopper.

Allow the wick to soak for 20 minutes.

Your lamp is ready, remove the stopper, and light the burner...

Wait for 2 minutes before gently blowing out the flame.

Place the top on the burner and your Lampe Berger will start to glow.

The burner diffuses little by little the scented fragrance to transform the air into atmospheres.

20 minutes* of diffusion is sufficient for the Lampe Berger to work its magic. * 1 mn per square meter.

You can now remove the stopper and replace the snuffer to turn off your Lampe Berger.
You have now created your ideal atmosphere. The next few hours are all yours.

You can see Lampe Bergers best sellers here
Other lamps here

Here is a short video that will show you how the lamp is used.

Once you have the lamp filled, you replace the wick inside and light it as shown in the video. Put the top on and enjoy the fragrance that will go all through your home. I love my Lamp Berger. I know you will too.
One lucky person from Canada will win one of these same gift sets that I received. A value of $49. So good luck everyone and get your entries in today.
