Feature Piece: Interview with Jade the Candle Girl!
If you’re a regular visitor to Jackpot Candles’ Facebook and Instagram, then you definitely know our fave, Jade, our one and only candle girl! Since everyone is such a big fan of her and her live events, we decided to get with Jade and ask her some questions so we can all get to know her a little better.
Q: How long have you been with Jackpot Candles?
A: I started last year in November! Been loving every moment!
Q: What did you do before you worked for Jackpot?
A: I have worked crazy random jobs including summer counselor, a part time princess (I would dress up as different Disney princesses and attend parties and make some smiles!) and I was a hostess and a server at a restaurant.
Q: What’s your favorite thing about your job?
A: Being able to be creative and be myself! It's such a joy to be able to create fun content and go live to chat about the things I love candles, coziness, and jewelry!
Q: What is the hardest thing you had to learn to do your job?
A: Lots of new programs for ambassadors and content creation! It's absolutely super fun to learn new things but it can be tricky!
Q: What’s your favorite candle scent?
A: EUCALYPTUS AND LILAC!! I love these scents so much, but my favorites are always changing as quickly as our collections are! Other top favorites are Warm Apple Pie, Maui Mai Tai, and Sparkling Snow. I'm obsessed with the new Sparkling Snow candle! The earrings are so cute! I haven't taken them off since I found them in my candle!
Q: Do you get to try on all the different rings?
A: OH, I SURE DO!! It's so fun!! Especially trying on the high-priced ones before they go in the candles! It's such a blast!
Q: Do you have any pets?
A: I do! I have a pup named Punkin Spice. She is a shih tzu and she is silly, adorable, and my favorite thing ever. I made an Instagram for her because I have to, she made me 😂
Q: What are your hobbies outside of work?
A: I play guitar and ukulele, I love yoga, relaxing and binging shows. Playing with my pup, Punkin, and taking pics for her Instagram, @punkin.spice.pup if you want to see what she is up to. I’m actually kind of a nerd so I love playing video games! When I'm not on my PlayStation I'm crushing it on beat saber on my Oculus. Also having a candle lit in the room is amazing btw.
Q: What’s your favorite color?
A: Blue, pink, and yellow!
Q: How long has it taken you to grow your hair so long?
A: Oh idk! I kept switching between short hair and long hair, but I think it's been like 5 years, and I just get a trim regularly to keep it healthy!
Q: What’s your favorite type of home décor item, besides candles?
A: Pillow and blankets! I want to be surrounded by infinite comfort items!
Q: Do you have a favorite beauty product that you use every day?
A: I love mascara! I have this one from Cosmetics and it makes my lashes soo long and I absolutely love it. Also, I love my facial cleanser! Nothing like sitting with a face mask smelling an amazing candle.
Q: What’s your “I can’t live without it” item?
A: I can't live without my phone. I know it's an obvious one as a social media person but it’s true!! Or my snacks or coffee, I love a healthy treat and a yummy cup of coffee with oat milk!
Q: What’s your favorite season?
A: I LOVE FALL!! It’s the coziest of seasons with the best smells! Pumpkin spice and warm apple pie! and it's a beautiful temperature so I’m not sweating but not too cold and I love walking amongst the trees and crunching on the leaves, it's the little things in life.
Q: Is there a dream city or country you would like to travel to or live in someday?
A: I've always wanted to go to Santorini and Costa Rica. I'm always down to travel to new places and it is definitely one of my passions!
Q: What’s your favorite place that you’ve traveled to?
A: I went to Budapest to visit my friend and we went to a music festival called Sziget. I saw so many artists and got to experience a beautiful city! I also loved London, it's an amazing city too!
Q: Are you a sports fan?
A: LET’S GO BUFFALLOOO!!! I sure am!! I have an obscene amount of Bills clothes and I love watching football with my dad, being a member of the Bills Mafia is like being in a huge family that loves beer and jumping through tables. I may have cried when our season ended but I'm looking forward to next year!
Q: What is your favorite food?
A: My mom makes this vegetarian chili and it’s to die for, SHOUT OUT TO MY AWESOME MAMA!! I also love hummus!
Q: What’s your favorite “cozy” activity?
A: I find yoga to be cozy, especially with a candle. My favorite is getting all snuggled up with a candle, my favorite blanket, and my pup to watch a show or movie. Also taking a warm bath and then hopping into a warm towel (yes, I have a towel warmer) then doing my full skincare routine, then relaxing with a facemask in some comfy cozies is amazing!
That’s it for now. Thanks to Jade for telling us all of these cool details about who she is! If you have any questions for Jade about Jackpot Candles, jewelry, bath bombs, or anything else about our products submit them for our weekly Ask Jade and your question might be chosen.
