3rd Order from Iherb + My first Popping Popcorn Experience
Not too long ago I blogged about my current new favourite online shop?
Yes this is the 3rd order I was talking about! :D
Again, this is not a paid/sponsored post, however if you use the coupon code that I will be providing I do get some form of rewards. The coupon code TBC541 gives you discount of up to $10.00 off your first order!
I love receiving parcels, it's like receiving presents!
Ordered on 17th March.
Shipped out on 19th March.
Arrived at my house on 24th March.
This time I bought a bunch of snacks/supplements!
For purchase above $40 there's a 5% discount.
In total I paid USD41.33 (SGD58.96) for this order.
Nature's Way, Fenugreek Seed, 610 mg, 180 Capsules
Nature's Way, Blessed Thistle Herb, 100 Capsules
Many mummies mention that these seeds/herbs are milk boosters so I thought I should order them to try. Fenugreek seed is retailing in most places at around SGD14-SGD18 per bottle, purchased on iherb at only SGD11.68 (before discount). Blessed Thistle is retailing at around SGD10-SGD16 per bottle, pursed on herb at only SGD8.53 (before discount).
Currently these 2 supplements are entitled to volume discount of 10-15%, so if you intend to purchase more bottles it will be even cheaper!
Barbara's Bakery, Snackimals, Animal Cookies, Chocolate Chip, 6 Bags, 1 oz (28 g) Each
Bought this for my girl as her snack in school from a shop nearby before and it's quite nice. Bought through Iherb for SGD6.94 for 6 packs. Not cheap but oh well she doesn't have cookies that often...
iHerb Goods, Day & Night Pill Organizer
This is what I choose for the trial item. Only paid SGD0.71 for this and I think it will be used well. :D
Jarrow Formulas, Organic, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, 16 oz (454 g)
SGD16.95 (before discount) Bought this because some mummies recommend using this for many purpose. You can use it to bake, use it to apply to hair/skin etc and it's apparently another milk booster. So yeah I'm going to use it to bake! :D
The first thing I used it for is to pop popcorns though! Hee Hee.
Nairn's Inc, Oat Cookies, Dark Chocolate Chip, 7.1 oz (200 g)
I love cookies and I love dark chocolate. :D Oat cookie is also known as a milk booster so yeah it seems like a good enough excuse to buy it? SGD5.68 (before discount)
Okay this photo totally didn't do the cookies justice!
It's delicious and I will purchase again, in fact I am putting it in my shopping cart right now so when I order my 4th iherb order I will remember to purchase it! :P
I have been wanting to purchase this for a really long time. Like since I bought the happycall pan a few years back? lol. SGD5.59 (before discount).
A day after receiving my parcel I decide to pop the popcorns haha. First batch I used olive oil, second batch I used coconut oil. Coconut oil is quite nice and both times I didn't use much oil so it doesn't feel oily at all! Super healthy and at the same time it's satisfying!
My first Popping Popcorn Experience
Spread 1-2 teaspoon of oil on pan (butter works too I think.)
My happy call pan the magnet come out already. -.-'
Once the oil is hot, put in the corns and wait for it to pop.
After it starts popping you can shake it a little so that it doesn't get burn.
When no more popping sound can be heard, you can pour out the popped popcorns in a huge bowl.
Popping popcorn is really fun and it's simple too! :)
Just a bit of popcorn and I get 1 big bowl of fresh fluffy popcorn. :D
The popping sound can be quite scary so do keep little kids away.
I was so scream-y when I opened the lip before the popping was done haha.
