Quinn Popcorn Feature and Giveaway #ad #holidaygiftguide #popcorn #gifts

Back in 2013, I introduced readers to Quinn Popcorn and never looked back! At that time, I didn't realize the harmful and plain nasty ingredients that are in regular, run of the mill microwave popcorn and it's packaging! Quinn Popcorn's original mission was clean up microwave popcorn's reputation and offer some delicious new flavors...mission accomplished!
Let's start with Quinn Popcorn's packaging. First, they removed all of the chemical coatings that is usually found in microwave popcorn. Next, they removed the typical gray metal patch on the bag. What remains? Paper that's made withstand grease. Quinn Popcorn with three parts: First, the popcorn that goes in the microwave. After that, you have two remaining steps including the oil and the flavor, depending on which one you're having.
The ingredients in Quinn Popcorn? Organic Popcorn, high Omega 3 oil and No GMOs!

These flavors are a such a treat!  My favorite is the Parmesan Rosemary, so delicious and flavorful! I also enjoyed the Butter and Sea Salt, which offers a delicious balance of lemon and salt. Lastly, I tried the Vermont Maple Kettle Corn, which reminded me of a gourmet kettle corn. Salty, sweet and delicious...this was my hubby's favorite.
Check out their other great flavors here!
Real Butter and Sea Salt
Micro White Cheddar
Just Sea Salt

Quinn Popcorn would make a wonderful, unique holiday gift or treat to serve at your next holiday function or corporate event.  You can buy any of the flavors here.  Quinn Popcorn is also offering one lucky Barefoot by the Sea reader a variety 3 pack of their wonderful popcorn!  Simply enter below (give the Rafflecopter form a minute or so to load) and good luck!

Woolzies Review and Giveaway #sponsored #ad #giveaway #2016holidaygiftguide

The 2016 Holiday Gift Guide continues this week with Woolzies! A couple of years ago, I did a review of Woolzies Dryer Balls.  I had never heard of these until the folks over at Woolzies send me a pack to review.  I have to say, they were pretty amazing and I've used them ever since! To give you a reminder...
Woolizies dryer balls can cut drying time by nearly 25%!  The result?  Quicker dry time and less electricity/gas use as well! Woolzies are intended to replace your fabric softener (both liquid and dryer sheets) as they will naturally fluff and dry your clothing, pretty amazing!  Liquid and dryer sheets have harsh chemicals that can be laden with allergens and are toxic to the environment.  Woolzies Dryer Balls are an environmentally friendly option. My laundry time has definitely been reduced and the clothes are fluffier.  In addition, these have reduced the static cling in my laundry loads.  Woolzies dryer balls are natural and made from 100% pure New Zealand wool and are handmade making them safe and free of any manufacturing chemicals.
Woolizies are unscented but I recommend you could add a few drops of lavender or lemon essential oil onto each dryer ball. Which brings me to the item I'm SO excited about to promote here! 
Woolizies Essential Oil Gift Pack makes an amazing gift! The gift pack includes 6 pure essential oils including lavender, lemon, orange, peppermint, tea tree and eucalyptus. This is high quality, 100% oil that smells lovely. Use this oil for your own soothing home remedies, to add scent to your dryer balls and more. Here's a little more about this oil:
  1. Lavender: 100% pure oil, Soothing and calming lavender scent, Fabric freshener and deodorizer, Easily dilutes with water to create natural sweet-smelling cleaning products. 
  2. Sweet Orange:100% Pure, antibacterial, can remove harmful bacteria from food preparation surfaces 
  3. Lemon: 100% Pure lemon scent, refreshing uplifting, great for adding to cleaning products.
  4. Tea tree oil 100% Pure, helps the immune system. It is used to ward infection of any kind, bacteria, fungi and viruses. 
  5. Lemon Eucalyptus : 100% Pure Revitalizing, clarifying scent 
  6. Peppermint oil: 100% Pure, has a strong peppermint scent. It relieves bad breath, nasal congestion, headaches, stress and nausea
