Today’s blog post is in sponsorship with Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP, one of my favorite snacks to wind down with at the end of the night! One thing I struggle with is just sitting still and being in the moment. My boyfriend calls me a “bopper” because I’m constantly bopping around doing something. After a while, it starts to catch up with me, and I get completely worn down. I try my hardest to dedicate one night a week to an evening self-care routine. Now that winter is coming and the nights are getting darker faster, I’ve noticed a significant change in my mood. It has me feeling so off, so these self-care routines are going to come in handy for getting me out of the funks as winter approaches. I love a simple routine that allows me to recoup, reflect, and relax while enjoying the small things.
During my latest self-care night, I tried the new Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP microwaveable popcorn, which comes in three different flavors – real butter, sea salt, and lightly sweet kettle corn. I’ve been a fan of Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP for so many years, so I knew the microwavable popcorn was going to be delicious! (& of course, it was!)
My dogs and I head out for our final mile walk around 7 pm after dinner. After this walk, they kind of know this is it, and it’s time to relax for the night. They also need and appreciate a routine. I love ending my self-care evenings with a walk because it’s the same time I shut down the computer and my phone. It’s how I leave it all behind and appreciate the moment. I take a lot of deep breaths on the walk to relax and release stress. By the time we get back to the house, I’m feeling all the endorphins start to kick in.
I know watching the news can be informative and very important, but I’m watching it almost all day while working, so I love shutting it off and not letting it affect my mood. Instead, I pop popcorn and pick out a “feel good” movie to watch. The “Fresh Pop Bowl” that Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP comes in makes it so much easier for popping and I love the no-mess concept. The bag is very thick; I didn’t have oil making its way through. The bowl also makes it convenient for popping and taking it straight upstairs! No one wants to do dishes on a self-care night.
I like to pick out movies that make me feel good. Sometimes I’ll watch a chick flick that I’ve already seen a million times, or settle for a classic. I will never live by a “no popcorn in bed” rule. Popcorn and movies go hand in hand. All of Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP flavors are made with whole grain popcorn, sustainably sourced palm oil and non-GMO ingredients. I also love that they are gluten-free and fit my lifestyle so perfectly.
If you’re a popcorn champ like me, then you can probably eat the entire bag! Each cup of popped popcorn has 35 calories. Grab me a can of sparkling water to go with my popcorn, and I’ll be good to go for the whole movie!
I don’t know about you, but self-care routines call for comfortable clothes! I put on my comfiest pajamas, slippers, and grab my favorite blanket to cozy up with.
I’m so excited about these new microwavable varieties. This popcorn was SOOOOOOO good. Not going to lie, I snuck a bag into the movies on Friday night with Kyle. I couldn’t help myself (oh, don’t act like you don’t do that!) The lightly sweet kettle corn flavor really hit the spot!
When I go on road trips or shopping for snacks, I usually buy Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP ready to eat products that come in the ready-to-eat bags. Those are the ones you guys are probably familiar with. They come in Sea Salt, Real Butter, White Cheddar, Cheddar Cheese, Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn, and Light Kettle Corn! And if I’m feeling festive, I’ll buy their seasonal flavors.
After watching a good movie, I’ll make some hot cinnamon tea and put on several face masks! I do a couple to wash my make up off, some to exfoliate, and then a moisturizing mask to finish.
A warm rose water bubble bath with candles, hot tea, and a good book is the best way to end the night. Something about a hot bath when it’s cold outside relaxes me and makes me want to fall right asleep. Just by adding three or four simple things to your nightly routine can truly turn around your week. Self-care is crucial, so get to it.
If you’re looking to have a self-care night soon, make sure to include Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP along with you! You can find the microwave popcorn at retailers nationwide and on online here! It’s only $3.99 a box which includes four delicious pop-up bowls!
