Happy Friday Friends!
Before we dive into my caffeine addiction, it’s affect on my creativity, and an opportunity for one of you to win twenty five thousand dollars (!!!) here is something I want you to know about this post and my partnership with Folgers!
This post is sponsored by Folgers as part of an Influencer activation for Influence Central. I enjoyed testing out Folgers Coffee as a part of this campaign and only share products on Ariel and Alder that I would truly recommend. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) guidelines concerning the use of endorsement and testimonials in advertising. I received complementary products to facilitate this review.
In short, Folgers wanted me to share something with you guys and I got to taste test some coffee for “research purposes” along the way. No arm twisting was necessary in the making of this post, hah 😉
Life revolves around coffee, and for me this statement is extra true. I wake up every day only ready to hit the day after a few sips of this glorious brewed energy, and I know I’m not alone. Eighty three percent of Americans start their day with at least one cup of this mighty dark fluid (USA Today) and with enough of us drinking it, it’s not surprising that coffee has become synonymous with late nights and early mornings.
Some of the best days start early in the morning and much as I try to keep a somewhat healthy schedule some of my best creative “Eureka!” moments arrive late at night, both of these instances are usually supplemented with a cup of coffee. Finishing a long embroidery project, writing a blog post, brainstorming for whats ahead. If inspiration had a smell, it would smell like coffee for sure.

This contest is centered around the iconic Folgers jingle!
which is a phrase I personally heard about a thousand times as a child, not even knowing what coffee was or why it might be the best part of anyones morning. In particular I remember watching this 1996 commercial, too funny how some things stay the same and get refreshed.
