Depending on the Kernels store you visit, they have a variety of tin designs!
Something for everyone on your Christmas list!
I chose two small Holiday tins! I love Christmas and these tins were perfect!
There are many other designs to choose from!
The Holiday tins are reusable which is a great gift giving idea because your family and friends will enjoy them for years to come!
I purchased the ones that look like paint cans with a design on them!
You can even get the large Holiday tins that various holiday designs on them, like snowflakes, winter scene, deer, pine tree.
They hold more then one flavour of popcorn if you wish!
When you pick a small Holiday tin , you receive one flavour of Kernels popcorn.
We picked Christmas Cheer, which is a mixture of Creamy Caramel and Red Raspberry which is a great combination!
And we also picked Creamy Creamy Caramel! Can you tell I am a caramel fan?

Spencer loved Kickin’ Ketchup! Normally he doesn’t eat this much popcorn but it proves yet again that if ketchup is on it then he will eat it.
Hayley loved Christmas Cheer! She keeps requesting I put it in her lunch for school.
I love when the kids find something they enjoy because my children are very picky when it comes to all foods!
Mike and I are loving the popcorn already made around the house in different flavours! Makes it easy for us to enjoy our favourite snack! And I love these tins that I will be able to keep filling up and enjoying them for our Christmas decor for years to come!

The reveiw I did recently was for Parissa-Natural Hair Removal Systems, for their Body Sugar product. I will say I am not one for waxing and I have never done it to myself!
So as a newbie I was nervous.
When I informed them of this , they were great! Informed me of the 888 number for Parissa Care-line!
It is also on their boxes and instructions! They want you to call if you need any help at all!
That number is 1-888-986-9974
When I got the wax kit, I have to say the instructions are very easy there is also pictures on it! Also they come in different languages to also help!
Since the instructions were so simple I followed them exactly step by step with no trouble.
I used the microwave for the sugar wax. I placed the sugar wax in a microwaveable bowl and heated it for 20 seconds. I made sure it was cool to the touch before placing it on me. (You can also heat it by a hot plate or by a reading lamp but I figured a microwave would be the fastest way for me since I don’t have a hot plate)
I placed the strip on my skin. I was nervous. I was worried it would hurt!
I braced myself and pulled the strip exactly how they show you in the instructions. And surprisingly it didn’t hurt me. I have felt worse getting a needle!
So I was fine to continue waxing my legs! It worked great! I recommend trying the Parissa sugar wax kit! My legs are smooth and you don’t have to worry for up to 6 weeks about it!
I am going to stick with Parissa Body Sugar! (maybe as time goes on I will try the other kits that are available too!)
Also the strips are reusable! Just wash the strip off and dry! That simple!!

I was contacted to do a review on Origami earrings and I jumped at the chance because I love to promote small businesses and I love interesting products to share to our fans!
I had Hayley (my 12 year old) pick the pair of earrings she wanted to review. (I no longer am able to wear earrings because my holes closed up. One day I will quit being a chicken and get them done again!)
Hayley picked the Origami Sitting Baby Elephants. (she had a hard time picking! She kept going back and forth until she settled on the baby elephants)
When they arrived Hayley saw them and said “oh Mommy, who ever did these is very talented!”
She wore them to school the whole day with no problems at all! She loves them! Hayley is the type who doesn’t like earrings in her ears often but she was excited to wear these earrings!
I had the pleasure of reviewing Zax’s Original Dark-Circle Eye Cream.
I have dark circles under my eyes. I hate the dark-circles but also don’t want to have to wear make-up all the time to cover them up.
When I received the package I also got bonus sample set of Zax’s Original Heelspur Cream and Bruise Cream! You can go to Zax’s Original and order a sample set of 3 of your own and all you have to do is pay the shipping to try them out! ($4.95 S&H) Click HERE to check them out!
I have been using the Zax’s Original Dark-Circle Eye Cream for a week and can see a difference. It will take time for my the dark-circles to go away but the cream does seem to be helping quite a bit! I am very glad that this product has been working so well! To be honest I have never tried Zax’s Original previous to this review, but they found a new customer in me! I look forward to trying the other creams out as well! (I haven’t had a bruise yet, which is odd for me! But when I do I will try my sample set! )
Here are some of the ingredients in Zax’s Original Dark-Circle Eye Cream that help with dark-circles:
Witch Hazel – is a natural astringent, its tannins help reduce dark circles under eyes, puffiness and swelling.
Caffeine – is a natural anti-inflammatory, it can effectively reduce the amount of swelling throughout the under eye area by constricting blood vessels.
Niacinamide – is a unique form of Vitamin B3 that is an effective skin-lightening compound and is also good for aging skin.
Cucumber Extract – at higher concentrations than just using cucumber slices, this extract soothes and moisturizes the areas around the eye.
and the great thing about Zak’s Original Cream is it is made in Canada!
When I was looking for more eco-friendly places for our lovely blog here. I looked to Google to see what we have in Ontario. I found out we have a great place right in our province that recycles tires for turning them into products for your home, yard and community! The Ontario Tire Stewardship!
I don’t know about you , but I love recycled product. I also love the fact that OTS Used Tires Program eliminates the use of burning tires or putting tires in our landfills! This will not just benefit the air we breathe now but for future generations!
Here are some amazing facts about the OTS Used Tires Program
OTS is exceeding its objectives, and
reached an exciting milestone of diverting its 50 millionth tire in Ontario in 2013!
Illegal dumping of tires has been virtually eliminated in the province thanks
to the introduction of the program!
OTS has cleaned up 500,000 tire piles across Ontario!
Eco-friendly tire-derived products can take the form of rubber mulch, floor underlay, fitness
flooring, outdoor pavers, roof shakes and new auto parts.These
products are often much more durable and easier to install than common alternatives, withstand extreme temperatures and do not leach harmful toxins into our environment and much more!
To find a Registered Tire Collector in your area click HERE! There is no tire disposal fee for dropping them off! It also tells you what they accept and don’t accept at that location! I found 3 locations in my small town! That is great news since I am looking at getting new tires soon so I need to dispose of my old ones!!
Here are some products you can purchased made from Recycled Rubber Tires:
