Start Your Day With McCafé

This post is sponsored by McDonald’s, but the thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own. New McCafe espresso menu available at participating McDonald’s

Life is busy, am I right? It’s an old cliché, but I truly feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day.

I work a full-time job in an office with a commute. My work days are never a typical 9-6; it’s always more. I care more about this blog than almost anything else, so I devote a chunk of time when I get home to working on new content, responding to comments, planning my editorial calendar, and catching up on emails. Plus, at some point I like to see my husband, friends and family, and cuddle my fur-babies. In my spare time, I thought it would be fun to edit a book. Literally, my mom and I have a book coming out in 2018. Oh, and we just moved into a new house.

I can’t even begin to cram all of this in without starting off my day with a nice hot cup of McCafé Espresso.  When my morning is off, my entire day is chaotic. So even though I’m running and twirling all over town to get things done, I take a moment for myself to sip my coffee and mentally prepare for the impending craziness. I’m a woman on the go, and I have to stick to some kind of routine to keep my life balanced. Without a routine, I worry about things slipping through the cracks.

I always start my daily routine with a fresh, yummy start thanks to McDonald’s. They have recently relaunched their new McCafé menu and let me tell you, there are some tasty options. There is a whole new line of espresso drinks that really treat your taste buds. My personal favorites include the iced Mocha, Caramel Macchiato and Vanilla Cappuccino. There are so many options that you can even start the day with a tasty treat and also have another for a midday pick-me-up.

The best part? You can have any  delicious small McCafé beverage for as low as two dollars. Also, when you download the app and purchase five any size McCafé beverages, you get one free!*

It’s easy to tell when you’re enjoying a tasty new McCafé beverage because it comes in a sleek newly designed cup. You can pick up a new espresso drink at participating McDonald’s locations. Find the one closest to you here.

I may always be on the go, but I make sure to find time for my morning coffee. Starting my day off with a McCafé coffee makes everything fall in place. It also turns me into a significantly more pleasant person to be around.

    I really like McDonalds coffee. I just saw ground McCafe beans at my grocery store and freaked out! It’s the best way to start my day.
