Happy almost summer everyone! It's me again, Jade, your Jackpot Candles girl. I'm here EVERY FRIDAY for Jade's Two Scents. It's my every-week vlog where I talk everything Jackpot Candles - think amazing scented candles, fizzy bath bombs, self-care, relaxation, and having fun. Thanks so much for being here!
I am SO excited for the summer... Perhaps a bit tooexcited - I've been planning out my summer activities like crazy and realizing, "Hmmm... I think I need to come up with some budget-friendly ideas for everyday hangs!" That's when I realized, this would make an amazing episode of Two Scents!
I know what you're thinking... What if I'm single?! These aren't just boyfriend/girlfriend/partner/friend dates! These are things that you can do yourself OR with others. Everyone loves saving money, so here's what I came up with for some cheap summertime fun!
Cheap Summer Date Ideas:
Farmers Market:Farmers markets are both cheap and fun! It's a social way to get outside, see other people (safely), support local businesses and farmers, and maybe even get a snack from a food stand!
Thrifting:Do you see my outfit?! It was THRIFTED. Thrift stores are full of hidden treasures - with just a few bucks, you can snag yourself a new outfit, a trinket, or even have a photoshoot with some fun, affordable threads! Picnics:Hear me out! You and your gal pals/boyfriend/girlfriend get a lil' basket, a lil' blanket, some unbreakable glasses... Be as fancy or basic as you want - the fun is in the customization! If you take a little time to make your own food, you'll save a bunch of money (and probably have fun doing it)
Pro Tip:If you're worried about bugs - we've got you covered! We JUST announced our latest product, our citronella two packs (more on those later)!
I am SO excited for these upcoming summer months! Lots of fun outdoors, on hikes, and chilling out in the backyard with family and friends... The only thing that could put a damper on that is BUGS. We went ahead and formulated a brand new SET of citronella candles that come in two amazing scents. We've got Orange Blossom citronella and Wild Berry citronella - we think that these two complimentary (but very different) candle scents will take your next backyard get together to the next level while also keeping all of those pesky bugs away! Don't forget... EACH ONE comes with a jewelry surprise. They'll make amazing party favors. Another summery scent I've been vibing on? Y'all have been asking about citrusy and fruity scents and I think Juicy Pomegranate hits both of those marks. This candle is fresh and zesty... And if you love refreshing summer scents as much as I do, you'll notice right away how identical this one smells to a fresh, ripe pomegranate. Finally, I can't believe it's almost over, but our Sea Glass Monthly Club is about to disappear FOREVER. This monthly club set has been one of my absolute favorites... But we've got a brand new idea set to hit for the month of June. Now's your last chance to get a sea glass candle before they are gone for good. Sign up now!
I would LOVE to see your new citronella candles in action! The next time you have a backyard get together, make sure to take a few pictures of your candles and send them my way. Actually, that goes for all of your Jackpot Candles experiences. Whether it's a fizzy bath bomb, an amazing ring reveal, or an aesthetic candle placement... I WANT TO SEE THEM ALL. Send me a DM on Instagram with your pics and maybe I'll feature them on our social media! Also - if you love taking pictures (and you're REALLY good at it), you should consider becoming a Jackpot Candles Brand Ambassador. Our ambassadors get super special treatment, fun gifts, and exclusive opportunities. Learn more here!
