I love unexpected positive surprises like winning a competition, birthday parties, gifts – the unexplained and unexpected grace from people in unusual circumstances.
The thing is, when you become an adult, happy surprises become less frequent.
But I do like to release my inner child every now and then and sometimes I do get excited about the toys the kids will get in their Kinder Surprise or Happy Meal. I like to relive those feelings of surprise.
So imagine my surprise when Royal Essence sent me some candles and bath bombs to try (and giveaway) in a post.
Initially, I wasn’t surprised by the email, but was happy to run a giveaway because it meant there would be something for you to win.
But I was surprised when I opened the box of gifts and read a note that said please share your jewellery on Facebook.
I thought the note was a little weird because I hadn’t been sent jewellery. I’d been sent bath bombs and candles.
I headed to the website and I got really excited. These bath bombs and candles were like Kinder Surprises for adults. Each candle and bath bomb comes with a hidden piece of jewellery worth $10 to $2000!
The inner child in me went a bit berserk.
I HAD to try a bath bomb for myself. I thought the candle would take too long to burn to get the piece of jewellery. I wanted my surprise, NOW. (It also worked in the essence of this post!)
Once my girls had been put to bed, I claimed the bathroom as my own and added a Raspberry Sorbet Bath Bomb to my running bath.
Oh my word! Running myself a bath with this delicious raspberry sorbet bath bomb from @royalessenceco #gifted I can’t wait to share a review and giveaway on the blog. #bathtime #royalessencebathbombs #eastertreat #eastertreatswithoutthesugar #metime by @theplumbette
The smell was delicious. Not overly sweet how I expected.
After the bath bomb swirled around the bath, a plastic container emerged. I retrieved it and opened it to find this.
It was love at first sight. I didn’t care about the value of the ring, but I LOVED the design and it fit me perfectly.
The bath was so relaxing, I stayed in there for an hour and a half. For a busy mum of 3, it was divine.
Since getting my ring, I’ve had a number of comments from people who have noticed the ring, and it’s given me a chance to talk about this fabulous brand. I haven’t had a chance to share on the Royal Essence Facebook page, but the brand loves to hear from their happy customers, sharing what ring they’ve found in their bath bomb or candle.
I LOVE the concept and product because
1. They make an affordable gift
2. The recipient is getting two gifts from one item
3. The products smell delicious! (My skin was beautifully supple, moisturized and scented after the bath)
4. You can indulge, without adding any calories to your diet. Win WIN I say!
I’m so excited by this product, I’m going to be buying some more items for Birthday and Mother’s Day presents.
Best of all I have a discount code so YOU can try these products for yourself. All readers of The Plumbette can receive 10% off by adding this code PV9S5 at the checkout.
This was meant to be an Easter giveaway, but due to Cyclone Debbie and the early arrival of school holidays in QLD (which meant less time for me to get this post written up), I’ve decided to extend the giveaway so that the entries aren’t drawn until AFTER Easter. They will be drawn in time BEFORE Mother’s Day though.
In order to enter the giveaway, I’d LOVE for you to follow The Plumbette on Instagram and Facebook. (not compulsory, but would love to stay in your life more than once so I can share about giveaways and amazing products like this one).
AND tell me in the comments below or on Facebook the best surprise you’ve ever had? Most interesting answer will win.
