Lil’ Luna Link Party 84

Link Party · July 3, 2012

Happy Fourth of July!!

I’m hoping everyone is enjoying the start to the holiday, and I hope everyone has the day off!!

Today’s link party is brought to you by:

A Little about Velata:

People said it couldn’t be done. How could you take something as complicated as fondue and make it simple?


In a flash of brilliance, it struck them. A small group of clever, chocolate-adoring Scentsy folks had a dazzling idea. What if we served scrumptious chocolate fondue in a plug-and-play, fun-to-use warmer worthy of such fine chocolate?

We set out in search of the world’s most perfect, blow-your-mind chocolate. Our journey took us to (where else) Belgium — the world capital of fine chocolate. We found the perfect chocolate with the purest ingredients and the velvetiest (sometimes you have to invent a word) consistency. The kind of chocolate fondue you want to dip into, heart and soul.

Perfect chocolate needs a perfect melt! So we invented a patent-pending silicone dish heated by a light bulb in a hip, fun, smart fondue warmer. Who else but Scentsy could find a hip, fun, smart way to use a light bulb?

Whether you are a foodie, a trendsetter, or just someone who thinks of chocolate as its own food group, Velata fondue products are for you.

Take a dip in indulgent Velata chocolate. Once you’re hooked, make sure to take a look at the Velata opportunity. You never know, you may make a life out of your love of chocolate.


I was thrilled to have been contacted by Velata to attend a focus group while attending SNAP back in April. Along with some of my favorite blog buddies, we were able to sample the products and learn about this new line of product from Scentsy.

Everything was sooo good! I couldn’t believe they could make fondue so easy and so yummy!!

Velata was even nice enough to send me some chocolate for a small craft night I had at my home last month.

I had about 20 women from church over to make my Father’s Day Pop Bottle Sets. It was so fun to craft, chat and eat yummy treats with fondue all night long! That night we had Milk Chocolate, Caramel Chocolate and White Chocolate to serve (didn’t have the Dark Chocolate going), but they were all so delicious! You guys probably could guess that White Chocolate is my fav!! 🙂

I even got my own warmer and have had fondue nights with my own little family. It’s perfect for dessert after Family Night, and my kiddos LOVE it!!

And do you want to know something awesome?!? Velata is giving one lucky Lil’ Luna reader their own warmer + 3 bags of chocolate – SWEET (in more ways than one – lol!!)
