SOS Novelties 3-in-1 candle in Glow My Love. The smell was amazing. The most unique thing about SOS Novelties 3-in-1 candles is a candle, emollient lotion and massage oil all in one! You can use the cold candle as an emollient lotion to leave your skin soft. When you warm the candle the wax turns to a silky massage oil to help set the mood in a matter of minutes. Or you can just light a few and enjoy the amazing light scent. When I first got my candle, I had to try it as the lotion. I loved how it left a light scent nothing over powering. It also surprisingly didn't leave an oily or waxy feeling on my skin. Next I lit my candle to see how it smelt. OMG!! It was amazing. The fragrance was so light and appropriate. Finally, I used me candle as the massage oil. The oil was perfect. Had the light amazing smell, felt great when massaged into my skin. The oil was the perfect temperature. It didn't burn or feel too hot. SOS Novelties 3-in-1 candles are made with aloe vera oil, apricot oil and coconut oil. They are all-natural and eco-friendly. SOS Novelties 3-in-1 candle retail for about $49.99 and can be purchased online at SOS Novelties site. (I received a SOS 3-in-1 Candle to write my review. All opinions stated are my own truthful opinion. I was in no way influenced by the review sponsor or by receiving a free candle.)

Who is the one person that helped to make you who you are today?
That is the easiest question. I would say that my mom is the one person that helped make me who I am today. She was a stay at home mom from the time my little brother was born, until he graduated. She was the first one up every morning and the last one to sleep every night. She made sure that we were up every morning and were never late for school. One of her favorite sayings is "A place for everything and a thing for every place." I honestly think I heard this in my sleep she said it to me so many times. And forget telling her if I couldn't find something because I didn't want to hear it. And forget about staying up late on a school night because you would hear her other favorite sayings, "Early to bed, Early to rise. Makes a person Healthy, Wealthy and Wise." She was always home when we got home from school to help with our homework. (Snack would be there too.) Dinner was never late. She swore by her schedule and even though I hate admitting it, It worked. We were never late and always early. You learned not to question what mom says because you would hear "I told you so." My mom was the one that I could always count on and I knew she would never let me down even if I let her down. I could always count on her and knew she would be there to dry my tears. I hated fighting with my mom even though I started a lot of them because I thought I knew better than her. Boy was I wrong! She never put herself first, it was always the family. She never took nights off even when she was sick. She was always a mom first and even now she is the same way everyone comes first. She made being a mom and wife seem easy. Being a mom is nowhere near easy, but she never let it show. I moved of my parents house three times and moved back in twice. And even if I never showed how much I appreciated my parents, if it wasn't for them and their unconditional love, I wouldn't be the person or mother that I am today.
I am now 28 years old and my mom is my Best Friend. She is the one that I can talk to about anything. The one that I can laugh with and cry with. Just hearing her voice comforts me. I strive everyday to be half of the mother that she was with my children. It's funny how things you learn and see when you are a child stay with you. I use the same saying with my kids and repeat my self 1,000 times sure enough to say, "If you would have listened to me in the first place we wouldn't be having this conversation.
I LOVE YOU MOM!
So Who is the one person who helped you be the person you are today?
