Stress Free Holiday: Shopping & Last Minute Gift Ideas

Happy Holidays, This year I have partnered with the following brands to bring you some Last Minute Shopping Tips and Gift Ideas.  It's the most wonderful time of the year  and the most STRESSFUL!   Let's keep it stress free, so you aren't a Scrooge saying

"Bah Humbug" when it comes to entertaining and shopping!  Here's a few of my tips:

#1  Have a Shopping Survival Kit-  Shop till you drop is not just a silly phrase people use.  I have shopped and dropped! I have been dehydrated, hungry and in pain with sore feet and back!  This year carry a mini kit in the car that includes 3-5 bottled waters, ibuprofen and a snack to treat yourself like  Indulgences by Smartfood Raspberry & Dark Chocolate flavored popcorn, a blissful combination of ripe raspberry and creamy dark chocolate drizzled over Smartfood Kettle Corn.

   Yes, I said blissful. Chocolate.  Raspberry.  Shopping.... 

It’s a deliciously smart holiday treat.  Smartfood Raspberry & Dark Chocolate will pamper your desire for something sweet. Every bit of this smart and airy popcorn snack is drizzled in sweet raspberry and dark chocolate perfection, and made with 100% whole grain and no artificial flavors or preservatives.  With 150 calories per serving, it’s the perfect holiday snack to take shopping, or on a break, treat yourself and de-stress. Available at retailers nationwide, don’t wait to get yours today! 
If you don't eat it all, may want to share  it with your holiday guests.  @Smartfood
