Wear Your Poppy So You Don’t Lose It! (3 simple things)

What, a post? And not about food? Yes, it may seem strange. But I made a decision recently to make videos and post about things that I think are interesting, funny, or a little bit helpful. So, there we have it.

So, I made a video! Watch the video for my top three tips for keeping your poppy secure, or see under the cut for more details.
