OVERNIGHT OAT JARS + GIVEAWAY
*This post was created in partnership with Quaker Oats UK
Good morning lovely people!
It’s 6.03 and the world is still asleep while I am eagerly typing this post. Yeah, that means much hasn’t changed on my end, I am still one of those annoying people that call themselves ‘a morning person’.
But mornings have a bad reputation!
Just think about it.A beginning of a new day.A new blank page of our life.The smell of possibility in the morning and a chance to do things that make us truly happy. What’s there not to like!?
But for me it’s even more that this. It’s actually the only time of the day I can plan, before things get really crazy, so these magical,serene moments that happen just before the noise of the outside world leaks into my day, are something I learnt to celebrate. And I celebrate in the sloooooow way!
While the snooze button is very tempting to press(no judgement!I totally get you!), how we start our morning sets the tone for the whole day.
But don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t mean that I don’t like my bed. Quite the opposite! Of course I do! Mornings spend in bed are always my best. So that’s why I’ve teamed up with Quaker Oats UK, they made me fall in love with overnight oats all over again, and I earn extra 10 minutes in the morning to enjoy my breakfast in bed and relax! That’s my GLOAT MOMENT!
And whether you are in a ‘morning club’ or not, a happy oat jar smiling at you first thing in the morning is always a win! And how cute is that designed jar with tiny figs printed all over it? Super cute! So if you’re in the UK, you can claim one of these lovely jars by buying one of the promotional 1kg box of Quaker Porridge Oats OR by entering the competition where you can win 5x of the specially designed jars.
