#Naturepedic Organic Pillow

pillows_reviewA good night’s sleep can leave one feeling better than anything else.  So many people today are complaining that they either can’t sleep, are always tired, or don’t wake feeling rested.  While the environment one sleeps in plays a huge role in that, the tools one utilizes makes an even bigger difference.  Sleeping in a position that allows one’s body to rest in a natural manner is so essential that there are literally millions of combinations one can create with thread counts, mattress types, pillows and even pajamas!  The key is finding the right combination for you!

Finding that perfect combination can take years.  One thing that I have learned in my quest for the most comfortable night’s sleep ever is that one cannot *gulp* fully depend on sales and clearance to get that combination right…  I know, that one is hard to swallow for all you deal seekers like me out there!  That isn’t to say that you can’t find great deals, just a realization that the pillows I get at Christmas sales for $3 aren’t the most effective pillows for my quest of the perfect night’s slumber!  They will, however, work just fine for the guest bedrooms and kids to sleep on.  LOL.  So, don’t despair, there is no need to put that off of your list of things that you ‘need’ to go out on Black Friday for!

I mentioned I found my perfect pillow, I know you are sitting on the edge of your seat waiting to get to the details so here goes!  My husband and I sleep in very different positions.  He likes his pillows to be flat so that he can sleep with his arm under the pillow.  I however like to have my pillows thick so that I can prop myself up on them as I sleep.  There is a good chance that is weird, but then if you’ve been around the Zoo long, you know I’m a pretty weird cat!  LOL.

We each got a pillow from Naturepedic that fit our sleeping habits, my husband’s first reaction to his new pillow was “Sweet, I don’t have to break it in, it’s perfect!” After a few months of using it, it is still the same as it was when we first got it.  I had feared that it would flatten more and become uncomfortable, as pillows so often do, but I was happily proven wrong!

Now on to the comfortable one…  Um…  I mean mine.  LOL.  One thing I hate about pillows is that they so quickly become smashed down (at which point I’m ready to give them to the hubby and get another!)  Surprisingly, after three months of use my pillow is just as plump as when I got it.  If you think three months isn’t en0ugh to smash a pillow, remember that I have narcolepsy so I sleep way more than one’s average 6-8 hours.  I sleep about 14-18 hours.  Lame, I know.  It is plenty of time to get a pillow broke in though!

If you are in the market for some good sleep, I highly suggest getting yourself one or two of these fabulous pillows!  You will NOT be sorry!  I assure you!

Newmans Own Product Review

NewmansReview

Newman’s Own are all organic and profits after taxes from the company go to various charities, dispensed by Newman’s Own Foundation.  Halloween is all about treats, so here are some great treats that we’ve really enjoyed for you!  They may not be products you can hand out the door, but you can definitely make some fabulous treats with them! We were able to try out many products, as you can see in the pic but there are four in particular that we really raved about! Organic Mints Really good!  Newman’s mints will astound you!  I let Monkey take some to school and the package came back empty a few days later!  Apparently they were a hit with the kids!  😀 Organic Licorice *Tip: Use black licorice to make spider legs!  ‘Glue’ them together with icing or chocolate and stick some on the top for a back.  😀  Or, you could use a round chocolate candy for the back! I have to say, we had a time saying ‘licorice’ after about 10 hours of driving…  I’m thinking road trip exhaustion was to blame…. Though I’m not a fan of licorice, it was apparently really good, as my girls ate two packages on our trip!  The licorice is in the straw shape so Monkey drank her soda with it.  She said it made her soda even better! Organic Cookies Oh man, oh man.  we seriously loved the heck out of the cookies!!!  The chocolate creme and creme filled Mint Chocolate Cookies were all amazing and Chief stole the entire package of Ginger ‘N Creme!  He refused to share, so I can only assume that they were amazing also!!! Expresso Dark Chocolate Alright, normally I can’t stand dark chocolate, but the Expresso Dark Chocolate was awesome!  It had a slightly different flavor than anything I’d tried in the past.  The expresso was represented subtly and gave it just the right flavor!!!  Trust me, you’ll want to check this one out!

#EverBamboo HEI Face & Body Soap Review

ever.bamboo

To see results from many facial products, you tend to have to use it for a while.  For the most part, you aren’t noticing the changes immediately…  Not with Ever Bamboo’s HEI Face and Body Soap.  Use it once and your face is amazingly smooth and the impurities are immediately brought to the surface!  After a few days, you’re skin will be as clear as it was before you knew what a zit was!  Okay, so maybe that was a little bit exaggeration….  Maybe…  However, it is no exageration at all to say that you will love thie soap!  It’s amazingly easy on your skin, clearing it out and making it super soft after the first use!  I’m assuming it’s the natural stuff that makes it work, who knows.  What I do know is that it is awesome, you need it, and you should start using it now.  You’ll be done with all the other cleaners- I promise!

Wholesome Sweeteners

wholesome
I will admit that in the past I haven’t exactly given organic products a fair try.  I never quite understood what the fuss was about.  That’s over now.  I’m quickly learning you get what you pay for!  I had the privilege of trying out the above selection from Wholsome Sweeteners and I am a changed person!  I LOVE these products!  They really do taste different, better, than their non-organic counter parts.  To tell you the truth, I’m a little shocked.  Not because they are good, but due instead to the massive taste difference!

Keep Reading!
