WIAW: Day 8 of Ten Days of Giveaways!

Woof. The start of this semester was a RUDE awakening, friends.

I knew I was going to be taking some upper level/hard courses, but I didn’t imagine it would be THIS HARD. And we’re only three days in! Needless to say I’m in need of a little wordlessness this WIAW. So I’ll announce Day 8 of Ten Days of Giveaways and then get right into the food fun!

From now until next Thursday there will be a giveaway everyday on the blog! So get ready for some awesome prizes and do some extra #healthyhelp to get in the spirit!

Beautiful products arise from people who love what they do and create as they please, for their own reasons. Happy people are free to create their own future and consider the happiness of others. Let’s ALL BE HAPPY.

While working with an Ethiopian coffee farmer named Dukale, Hugh Jackman realized that amazing products and the talented people who make them don’t receive the attention they deserve. Determined to bring distinctive products to market while supporting individual producers and the growth of local communities, he formed Laughing Man Worldwide. By reinvesting 100% of its profits to assist community development and entrepreneurial education, Laughing Man Worldwide offers assistance for people to begin making their own way.

Hugh Jackman first created the business Laughing Man Coffee and Tea, which brought to market Dukale’s exceptional coffee. Dukale is only one man, one product and one story, but there are many others like him. Laughing Man Worldwide will continue to support new ventures one person at a time. 

They are offering one of my readers TWO bags of their amazing Dukale’s Dream Espresso!

    I really like coffee, but it’s not an everyday thing for me. I drink tea pretty much everyday, though. I’ve heard that you should eat your favorite part of the meal first, so that you don’t get stuffed or feel like you have to eat everything else before your favorite, but that doesn’t mean I always remember to do that! lol

    aww good luck this semester! the beginning sucks but you eventually get into a groove. being in 90% art classes required me to bring out my perfectionism all of the time because there’s no tests, agh!

    True story: When my son was in kindergarten and learning the alphabet, he said one day, “Apple begins with A, Ball begins with B, Mom begins with coffee.” :)

    I just learned recently about Laughing Man and its products. Would be absolutely delighted to win some. Nice to meet you.

    Definitely a coffee drinker. Love it in the morning the best.

    I didn’t know the about Laughing Man Worldwide, or the story behind it. Thanks for sharing!

  5. says

    I used to drink coffee, but now I just can’t stand the taste of it–I much prefer tea! It’s my go-to source of energy now. Honey Chamomile is the best.

    mmmm those eats look delicious! look at all those veggies.. and i want to come over and have you make me a smoothie, haha.

    i’m feeling ya on the struggle bus this week- last week wasn’t too bad but this week the tiredness is starting to set in and the readings are piling up!

    Good luck this semester! I know my second semester of sophomore year was also harder than I expected–I was taking all upper level classes for the first time and balancing a part-time job but it’ll get easier with time. It actually feels weird to me to not be going back to school this semester and it’s crazy that I kinda miss the structure of having classes!

    Right?! I feel the exact same way with my classes. Sure they are interesting, but holy course work! All A’s… I’m still crossing my fingers to hold to that but not failing is obviously #1 priority. Lol.

    Yeesh. I’ve missed a lot of giveaways. Must get on that ;)

    No coffee for me, or actually anything other than water. I’ve drank coconut milk a few times, but that didn’t go too well. I guess peppermint tea? Haha. Not much for energizing though.
