Catching Zzz’s With Tempur-Pedic

An Eclectic Boho Bedroom with Tempur Pedic

Sleep is important. Duh.

But only recently I realized the quality of my R&R wasn’t up to snuff. For years, I slept on a crap-tress (AKA a crappy mattress) but a) I was a young new homeowner, so spending money on something I already had wasn’t a priority, and b) I worked from home, so I slept long hours, woke up naturally and had a comfy couch at my disposal at all times, so it wasn’t important to me… then.

Once I signed on to film my HGTV show, I had to completely change my sleep schedule (and, well, my self-care routine too).

I now get up at 5 or 6am daily and don’t get home to bed most nights until late. After a few months of feeling crotchety upon waking,– which should not be the case when you’re 26 — I realized I needed to do something. Between Piper jumping on and off the bed all night and sleeping on popped coils, I simply wasn’t getting a good quality sleep.

So I made a big commitment and decided to update my sleep game with Tempur-Pedic‘s Embrace Queen mattress, a new 4.5″ boxspring (which is awesomely thin), and Soft + Conforming pillows. Naturally, I used this as an opportunity to update my bedroom’s design. And today — two weeks into sleeping on my new Tempur-Pedic products — I’m sharing my honest review and my tips for getting a better night’s sleep.

A Gift Idea For The Guy In Your Life

Calling all dudes — or ladies buying gifts for dudes!

Every year I post a big gift guide targeted mostly to ladies, so I wanted to throw an idea out there today for that special dude in your life, be it your dad, brother, boyfriend, uncle or husband.

Whether you have no facial hair, or a beard that reaches your belly, Cutthroat‘s selection of awesome men’s grooming products would make a great gift for any guy in your life. (And pssst, there’s a discount code below!)

Shawn uses a bunch of their products and I looooooove the smell of them (and actually prefer it to cologne) — and the fact that they’re handmade in small batches in Canada is a big bonus for me as someone who likes buying local. So if you have a minute, check them out online and use code holiday17 for 17% off!

Dope Holiday Gift Ideas – 2016

2016 Holiday Gift Guide for Her

It’s that time of year again!

Finding gifts should be easier than ever thanks to online shopping, but I also find having endless options makes it super hard! But we’re just over a month away, so for those of you who don’t know where to start, I put together a little gift guide with some ideas! In all honesty, this guide is full of things on my own wish list, but I hope you find an item that rings true for that special someone on your list.

I may create more guides as I stumble upon awesome finds online, so enjoy and keep your eyes peeled for another guide soon!

Bay Days is ON! Dope Deals on Home Furniture + Decor

Bay Days are here! Shop the biggest discounts on hot home furniture and decor.

I didn’t plan on posting today. But when I woke up this morning and opened my inbox, one measly subject line tugged at my heart strings: Hudson’s Bay – Bay Days is on NOW!

Slapped awake with joy, I slipped out of bed without disturbing a sleeping Piper and Shawn, parked my bum on the couch, and began browsing the sales — but not after checking in on a few items I’ve had my eye on. To my delight, the boots I was humming and hawing over at $100? Just nabbed ’em for $50. Patience, indeed, is a virtue.

Without further ado, I thought I’d share my favorite handpicked pieces for the home — and tomorrow, look out for a fashion version! Click the links or the photos to shop. Enjoy!

1. Peter Accent Chair (Sadly, it’s already sold out. but Dwell’s Hans chair is a great alt — also on sale!)  |   2. Gesture I Giclee Print (sold out, but this is a gorgeous alt)  |   3. Smash Stool   |   4. Vente Ceiling Lamp   |   5. Sonya Geometric Patterned Feather Cushion   |   6. Le Creuset Round 6.7-Litre French Oven Pot   |   7. Earth Wine Cabinet   |   8. Textured Wool Cushion   |   9. Communion Dining Chair Set   |   10. Axis Ceiling Lamp   |   11. Serengeti Accent Chair   |   12. Liberty City Buffet   |   13. Driftwood stool   |   14. Colonnade Indigo Duvet Cover   |   15. Natural Ivory Barbary Rug

And PS: No, this isn’t a sponsored post, and no, I’m not being facetious — I just think The Bay is a beacon of light in the online shopping world: you just can’t argue with free doorstep delivery within days and easy returns at any retail location. I’ve been known to buy 10 similar items with the intention of only keeping one. I’d much rather try things out in the comfort of my home and only make the trip to the store to return items.
