Sleep Number Coolfit Foam Pillow Review

Sleep Number Coolfit Foam Pillow Review

Disclosure: I received this Sleep Number Coolfit Foam Pillow FREE in exchange for a product review.   All opinions are 100% my own.

Hello friends, I hope all is well in your world. As a blogger my mind is constantly running a mile per minute and getting a good night’s sleep isn’t something that comes easily. That coupled with “pillow pounding” and snatching back the covers, (thanks to menopause) I wake up exhausted!

I recently received a Sleep Number CoolFit Foam Pillow as part of my Sleep Number store experience and SleepIQ technology feedback with #Smiley360.

I normally purchase new pillows several times during the year because they lose their shape and go flat, but I can tell already that his Sleep Number Coolfit Foam Pillow is not going to lose it’s shape or go flat. Heavier than a normal pillow with a contoured shape for neck support will keep it on my bed for a long time.

However, the best feature of this pillow is the Coolfit technology which is especially important now, because I hate waking up in a sweat.

Initially there was a strong odor or new product scent, so I removed the cover and placed it and the pillow inside the dryer with a fabric softener sheet and after a few cycles the smell dissipated.

I can honestly say that I like this pillow and feel as though I am getting a better night’s sleep, or at least I’m not losing more sleep via pillow punching!  

How about you; are you a pillow puncher, cover snatcher or do you sleep like a new born baby?

DIY Statement Necklace Holder

DIY Statement Necklace Holder

Hello friends, I hope all is well in your world.  If you are like me and love costume jewelry or perhaps went overboard purchasing statement necklaces from Walmart, then this DIY is for you.  

I have several jewelry boxes and holders, but a few years ago my necklace collection got too large so using just a few supplies, I created a necklace holder that sits on the floor in our spare bedroom.

I purchased the pegboard from Home Depot and had them cut it in half so that I could add hinges making it easier to stand on the floor in my closet.  This is also a great way to display jewelry if you sell at Yard Sales and Flea Markets.

If you prefer to keep the pegboard full size to hang, then attach it to a wooden frame first.  You can then hang it on your wall or inside a closet door, just make sure it’s not too heavy with a lot of jewelry otherwise it will fall down or pull away.

The pegboard hooks are usually found a few aisles away from the pegboard which I don’t understand, but there’s a large assortment to choose from.

If you prefer not to screw on the hinges use cable ties as they are very sturdy and will hold the two pieces together. Save yourself some money because Cable Ties can also be purchased at Dollar Tree.

5 Things You Don’t Have in Your Bathroom But Probably Should {Guest Post}

5 Things You Don’t Have in Your Bathroom But Probably Should {Guest Post} 

Author: Amber Brubaker

You may think that your bathroom is outfitted with everything necessary for you and your family’s needs. But think again. There’s always a way that you can spruce up your bathroom for both looks and functionality. Once you try these five functional and attractive bathroom additions, you’ll wonder how you ever got along without them!


1. Nifty, Creative Storage

Maybe you don’t have very much cupboard or drawer space and something always gets left out without a home. Or maybe you have plenty of cupboard and drawer space, but they’re always cluttered and unsightly. Either way, you need some new, creative DIY storage solutions like the ones below.

Mounted Mason Jars: Mason jars are the perfect and cute way to store your cotton balls, q-tips, and makeup brushes. Just nail some large metal, adjustable hoop rings to a painted board, put your mason jars in the rings, and hang the display for some adorable storage!

Cupboard Door Cubbies: Use some wood glue to attach boards to your cupboard door to create an open box where you can store lotions, toilet paper, and more. Or, if that seems a little too complex for you, simply use adhesive plastic hooks and hang wire baskets from them.

Floating Shelves: Over-the-toilet stands are bulky and not always classy-looking, but floating shelves are the perfect, attractive solution to your storage needs. Whether they’re over your toilet, next to your towel rack, or by the door, floating shelves will look great and work perfectly for your towels, toothbrushes, and bathroom decor.


2. Framed Bathroom Mirror

Don’t you love that giant mirror spanning the entire wall of your bathroom? That big mirror is the reason you and your partner never argue about space in front of the mirror in the morning. But that’s pretty much the only good thing about it. It’s not exactly the most attractive part of the room. That can all change if you frame it.

Start by measuring the perimeter of the mirror so that you know how much trim you need to buy. Carefully remove the clips around your mirror and make sure it’s glued to the wall. If it’s not, glue it on. Ask advice from a professional on this one.

Next, collect your trim from a hardware store. You’ll want the edges to be angled so that they’ll fit together in a nice corner. Spray paint the trim with the color of your choice, and use wood glue to attach it to the wall around the mirror. Voila! A perfectly attractive frame to enhance your favorite bathroom feature!

3. Indoor Shutters

You’re curtains may be cute, but honestly, they aren’t the best window covering for your bathroom. They fade quickly, aren’t exactly sanitary, and it’s hard to keep them clean. If you want the best possible window covering, you should look into indoor shutters for your windows. They’re the most modern, yet cozy window covering available. You can get them in any color to match your bathroom decor, not to mention, they’ll increase the value of your home. If that’s not enough to convince you that your bathroom needs indoor shutters, read this article for more dynamite reasons.

4. Reminder Boards

Do you have little ones who forget to brush their teeth, wash behind their ears, or any other hygiene necessities? Sounds like you need some cute reminder boards to give them a hand. You could use a plain white board to write daily reminders for your forgetful mini yous, but if you want it to be really cute and match the decor of your space perfectly, make a cute dry erase board out of a picture frame.

All you need is a picture frame of any size, a piece of scrapbook paper that matches your home decor, and some dry erase markers. Put the scrapbook paper in the picture frame, hang the frame on your wall, and use it for your reminders. The dry erase markers work on the glass just like they would on a white board.

5. Towel Hooks

Boring towel racks are a thing of the past. They aren’t exactly attractive, and they usually only hold two towels. You probably also end up with a pile of wet towels on the floor every morning. If that sounds like your bathroom, remove the towel rack ASAP and add cute hooks instead.

You can make your own with some fancy, decorative hooks attached to a painted board that you can hang on the wall. Or, look for a row of hooks in your favorite home goods store. This update is not only stylish, but it will also encourage the other members of your household to hang up their towels because it’s so easy.

So, there you have it! Some simple bathroom remodel ideas that will make your plain bathroom fabulous!

Covering Up Against the Cold

Covering Up Against the Cold – #loveseatcover12 #armchaircover12

Hello friends and welcome to winter.  In the Northeast it’s time to baton down the hatches and cover up or put away the outdoor furniture. Unfortunately, our garage is filled to the gill with the riding lawn mower, snow blower, cushions, umbrellas and pool supplies so I can’t put any more items inside including our cars!

The deck cushions are all neatly packed and put away, but I have to keep a few pieces of deck furniture out so it’s important to have it covered in order to prevent damage during the winter.

Astor Chair Covers Review
