Make It A Popcorn Night With Orville Redenbacher


Even though the weather is cooler, we're still spending a lot of time outside enjoying the beauty of fall. It's also the perfect time to enjoy cozy evenings indoors with the family watching a movie, and eating some popcorn--two things that go hand in hand for me!

One of our go-to snacks that's also pretty healthy is Orville Redenbacher popcorn. We love it because it tastes good, contains no artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives, is made with 100% whole-grain, non-GMO popcorn, and is a high source of fibre. 

Since we are also spending more time at home together as a family, trying to keep healthy while keeping our community safe, we are doing more baking and Orville Redenbacher has some great recipes that you can make at home with your children, incorporating popcorn--so fun!

I just made these homemade granola bars, and it's a really simple recipe--they're so delicious, too!

Summer Of Colour: Top Gardening Trends With #PCGarden And A Gardening Giveaway

I admit it... I don't have much of a green thumb, but I love beautiful gardens and flowers in the summer. Whether it's at my place, my in-law's, or my parent's home, I appreciate pretty flowers and a lovely garden, and so do my children. Now that the first long weekend of summer is behind us, we're totally in summer mode. I was even motivated to get my garden ready.

Happy To Be A ShoeMe.ca Shoe Style Ambassador (Plus A Shoe Giveaway!)

I love sharing shopping news with my readers and friends and letting everyone know about fantastic deals, new products I love, and great new sites that are worth checking out.
