Pretty paper and hemp protein balls! A match made in heaven, am I right? I recently teamed up with Renova to try out their gorgeous paper products such as coloured napkins, paper towels and tissue and I’d have to say they made a beautiful addition to my photos, don’t you think? I love that pop of fun colour!

Having a variety of inexpensive, fun and brightly coloured photo props on hand definitely it comes to food photography. The colourful and artistic Renova paper products made it easy to quickly change the look of my photos and really add a nice punch of colour! Renova products would be perfect for weddings, summer BBQs and theme parties too! How cute would their pocket-sized coloured tissues be to give out at weddings?!

Renova is originally a company from Portugal and has recently expanded its amazing line of products to Canada. Lucky us! The brand started life in Torres Novas, Portugal back in 1939 and had been made famous by celebrities like like Beyoncé who will only use red toilet paper on tour!

Renova was the first to launch black toilet paper in 2005. Since then, they are recognized globally as “The Sexiest Paper on Earth”. I actually think the black toilet paper is pretty cool! But it also comes in pink, blue, yellow and a bunch other bright colours. They would be such a fun and unique touch to different events!
