Happy Sunday, friendly faces!
How’s your weekend been so far? Mine’s been good, thanks for asking 😛 A little warm, maybe, but I guess heat in May is better than snow in May.
But enough small talk — today’s post is all about the Link Love! And this week’s edition is extra special because — drum roll please — there’s a little something extra in it for you. Yup! It’s time for a giveaway!
If you’ve been reading Spoons for a while now, you might know that I’m
obsessed with an ambassador for Love Grown Foods. Not only do they have some delicious products (I heart the chocolate Mighty Flakes), but the company, including the people and their mission, is just amazing… which is why I’m super stoked to be hosting a giveaway to celebrate Maddy and Alex’s wedding next weekend. Eeee! The rules are super simple: all you have to do is head on over to their products page and leave a comment letting me know which product you LOVE (if you’ve tried them before) or which product you’d LOVE to try. That’s it! The giveaway is open to residents in Canada or the US (sorry international friends!), and you have until Wed, May 27th at midnight to enter — the winner will be announced on May 28th. As for what’s up for grabs, it’s a package of Maddy and Alex’s favourite products, including: Original Power O’s Cocoa Goodness Oat Clusters Strawberry Raspberry Hot Oats Blueberry Super Oats Packet Nuts & Seeds Super Oats Chocolate Mighty Flakes
Giveaway is CLOSED. Congrats to Vivian!
Uhm… can I enter, too? 😆 ‘Cause there’s definitely a lot of awesomeness in there.
So enter the giveaway, check out some of the awesome links in this week’s link love, add your own favourite links to the linkup, and have yourself an awesome day!
