Coffee is a constant in our house. My husband is one of those guys that feels his morning has not started yet without his freshly brewed cup of coffee. All my life I’ve been a huge tea fan, however hubbys love for coffee definitely rubbed on me too. One of our favorite things to do is to grab two cups, sit on the porch under a blanket, and chat about our day, or anything really. 🙂
Through out my day, you can also almost always see me walking around with my various tumblers. I have a million different designs, and I like to match them to my outfits. My latest favorite is this gold dot one, and I loved it with my new pink, asymmetrical knit dress. Before I tell you why I love this dress though, I want to share the fun Folgers Jingle Contest you need to hear about.
One of the things that is well recognized about Folgers coffee is the iconic Folgers jingle. ( For me for sure!) Its impossible not to sing along with it. I thought it was so cool that Folgers is giving a chance to aspiring musicians to create their versions of the “Best Part of Wakin’ Up” and enter it in the Folgers Jingle contest.
Although I have a high appreciation for music, and LOVE listening to it, I am not a musician myself. ( I wish) I was thinking how fun this competition could have been for my guitar playing son though. If he was not eight that is haha. Folgers teamed up with Chris Young, the country music singer/ songwriter to encourage the entrants to achieve their dream of creating their own jingle.
How Does the Folger Jingle Contest Work?
- You submit a video of your own best version of the jingle on the website through February 27th. Your version has to have the complete melody & lyrics of The Best Part of Wakin’ Up is Folgers in Your Cup.”
- 5 semi-finalists will be chosen from Feb. 27th to March 19th, and before the online vote, each of the 5 will have a mentor session with Chris Young.
- Fans all around US will be able to vote daily for their fave jingle from March 27th to April 24th. The bonus part is that every vote automatically enters you to win prizes up to $10,000.
- In May, one winner will be selected to win the grand prize of $25,000! Sounds great right? If you are a musician I say go for it!

Style Tip: Now onto this pink, knit beauty. I think its evident by now (especially if you’ve read any of my recent fashion posts) that I just LOVE cold shoulder styles. When I find this style in colder weather appropriate pieces all the better. This asymmetrical dress in pink knit fabric is a super easy item to style, (you can layer it with on trend cropped suede jackets, or wear it under a cardigan. ) and provides a blank canvas for accessorizing. I adore the soft pink color.
I styled my dress with lace-up heels, and statement drop earrings. You can easily layer with necklaces in various lengths, or add one big bold piece. When I am going out, I would add a crossbody bag, or a neutral tote.
