Pink Zebra Review & Giveaway


There's nothing that I like more than my house smelling delicious. Whether it's watermelon and strawberry scents in the summertime, or pumpkin and cinnamon around the holidays, I absolutely love going from room to room smelling the sweet aroma of the candles burning. But lets face it, candles and toddlers don't really mesh and can cause quiet the anxiety attack, so unless Baby A is asleep, I keep the candle burning at bay. Obviously my sons safety is my priority, but I can't help miss the smell of a candle burning during the day, so that then poses the question, what can I do to change that? Thanks to Pink Zebra, I can now have the sweet, delicious scents throughout the house, without the danger of a candle!

*I received four complimentary Jars of Sprinkles for review in exchange for my honest thoughts and opinions.

Pink Zebra was created by Tom and Kelly Gaines, who after working for a candle manufacturer for over fifteen years, longed to pursue their dream of owning their own business and set off to create a fun, unique, high quality product that would embody their incredible journey in the candle industry. 

When Pink Zebra Independent Consultant Jennifer Bowman got into contact with me, inquiring about teaming up to bring you all this fabulous giveaway, I had never heard of Pink Zebra and had no idea what "Sprinkles" were. I bugged Jennifer countless times asking questions and trying to get a feel for how they worked. Pink Zebra's Sprinkes are beads of soft soy wax and fragrance oils that are blended together at highly concentrated levels, delivering up to 50% more scent than a typical candle would.
I was so excited when she invited me to go pick out which scents I wanted to try. The variety of scents was incredible and I flip flopped my mind several times before I finally landed on the four scents that would soon fill my house with a delicious aroma. After extensively talking with Jennifer I decided to forgo getting any wicks or simmer pots to use with my Sprinkles, and instead I decided to get creative on what to use them for.

When the Sprinkles arrived on my door step, I could seriously smell them through the packaging and the shipping box that they arrived in. I couldn't believed the amazing scent that they put off, even before I took them out of their boxes! Playing off of their Pink Zebra name, the Sprinkles arrived in the cutest white boxes with pink zebra stripes! The first thing that came to mind when I saw the boxes was that they would make a fabulous gift for an expectant mother, or even a bachelorette! The box screams "sassy" and I loved it.


When I opened up the boxes I got a fabulous surprise of fun, witty little notes inside! Out of the four boxes of Sprinkles, I got three different notes inside reading "Behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes", "Wrinkled is not one of the things I wanted to be when I grew up", and my absolute favorite, "The other day someone said I could make ice cubes out of leftover wine. I was confused..what is leftover wine?". Kudo's for Pink Zebra adding such a simple yet fun element to their packaging!

As I said above, Jennifer generously let me choose the four scents that I want, and honestly, I had to consult with her a few times before I made my final decision! Honestly, I probably drove her a little batty, but in the end it was soooo worth it because the scents I picked are PERFECT. I chose the Orange Dreamsicle, which literally smells exactly like a dreamsicle and reminds me of my childhood, the Green Tea & Lemongrass which is light and refreshing, perfect for using in the kitchen or bathroom, I {Love} Watermelon, which smells just like a watermelon Jolly Rancher candy (YUM), and Cake Batter,which of course smells just like yummy cake batter. My two favorite scents out of the four are Orange Dreamsicle and the I {Love} Watermelon, they are delicious and make me think that summertime is already here! 


So what can you do with Sprinkles? 

-Put them in cute jars around the house
-Put a wick within the middle of them and burn it down like a candle
-Put it into a Pink Zebra simmer pot and melt them down for intensified scent
-Put them into sachets and put them into your dresser drawers
-Put them into a sachet and put them in your car as an air freshener
-Put them in your vacuum for a yummy scent while you're cleaning house
-Sprinkle them in the bottom of your trash can 
-Sprinkle them underneath of your pail liner in your cloth diaper pail (this helps a LOT)
-Even sprinkle them in kitty litter or other pet areas (they're nontoxic!)
-Mix and match to create new unique scents!
& Much More!

What did I do with my Sprinkles?

Okay, so I'll admit, I haven't been the most creative person lately, but I was looking forward to reusing some jars and leaving Sprinkles out all over my home. In Baby A's bathroom, I thought it was only fitting to reuse an old baby food jar and scent the room of Orange Dreamsicle. In our front room (which doubles as a play room) I used an old mason jar (previously used for honey) and put some of the I {Love} Watermelon out. In mine and Mr. Hunky's bathroom I used a small plate/bowl thing (sorry, not sure what to call it!!!) that I was using for bobby pins, and put out some of the Green Tea & Lemongrass, and in the kitchen I used another mason jar for some of the Cake Batter Sprinkles (not pictured). Every time I walk into one of the rooms where a jar of Sprinkles are, I am delighted to smell the scent and I love knowing that I'm not putting my house in danger with a flame burning!


As you can see, I could go on and on about how much I love the Sprinkles and how excited I am to of found this company. I highly recommend that you pick up some sprinkles for yourself and see what all of the fuss is about, I promise you will love them as much as I do!

    1. This is MY favorite fragrance.
      When I was little I remember in the middle of the summer sitting on the front porch of my parent's house with an orange Flintstone Push-pop, it would melt faster than I could eat it. When I smelled Orange Dreamsicle it's exactly where it took me in my mind. Those summer days :)
