Possibly the Most Comfortable Mattress Ever

You spend a third of your life in bed. How comfortable is your mattress? I had the pleasure of experiencing what I consider the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on. A Nectar Mattress is healthier to sleep on, firmer for support, softer for rest, and a touch bouncier than other premium memory foam mattresses.

Nectar Sleep is a company that makes the most comfortable mattress ever. It is a better mattress at a better price. They deliver the mattress directly to your home, compressed, and in its own protective carrier with handles for maneuvering up stairs and around corners. It was so easy to set up.

The bag has handles, so my husband and I were able to get it up the stairs and around corners with no problem. Then you remove the bag and are left with the rolled and compressed mattress. Just unroll it and remove the outside plastic. It will expand and before you know it you have a new mattress.

The support of a firm mattress with the comfort of a pillow top, Nectar’s contouring memory foam allows the mattress to adjust to your body position and relieve pressure points, no matter how you sleep. I was honestly blown away by the comfort. I am a side sleeper and a back sleeper. No matter which position I sleep in, my Nectar Sleep Mattress molds to my frame and I feel like I am sleeping on a giant hug.

That amazing comfort comes from five layers. On the top you have the Tencel Cooling Cover which promotes air circulation, heat wicking, and it's bedbug resistant. Under that is Gel Memory Foam. This layer delivers weight distribution and pressure relief. Next is the Breathing Base Layer which reinforces the contouring and support layers serving as a stable foundation. The Quilted Gel Memory Foam provides loft and air circulation while perfectly contouring to your body. Finally comes the Adaptive Hi Core Memory Foam. This recovery foam supports the body while providing rebound and bounce. All layers use only premium Certipur memory foams that are better for you and the environment.

My Nectar Memory Foam Mattress has changed the way I sleep. I used to toss and turn all night trying to find a comfortable position. Now I lie in whatever position I want and fall asleep fast. I also find that I basically don't move around all night because I am so cozy! It's not hot either. In fact the top layer of quilted memory foam stimulates air flow beneath the body, while the Tencel fabric wicks away heat.

You get the support of a firm mattress with the comfort of a pillow top. It is more firm than you might think. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being very firm, I would say it is an 8. I was worried that a memory foam mattress might be too soft and squishy, but it's not. The combination of layers and materials allows Nectar to both contour and support your body.

You can use your new Nectar Mattress on any bed type, platforms, or even on the floor. We have a split box spring and just placed it on top. It worked perfectly. Look how thick this mattress is! It really is a joy to lie down on the most comfortable mattress night after night.

Nectar stands by the comfort and durability of their mattresses. They offer free home delivery, the longest trial period, best warranty, and free returns. You can take Nectar home for a 365 night trial. No that is not a typo. 365 nights. Try Nectar risk free for a full year. If you are not 100% happy, they will pick up the mattress for free. The forever warranty means that Nectar guarantees the mattress for as long as you own it.

Improve your sleep experience with a mattress from Nectar. I have been using mine for over a month and could not be happier! I love my Nectar Mattress and I am sleeping better than ever.

The Versatile Fiona Sandal from Waldläufer

Waldläufer [valt-loy-fer] is a second generation shoe manufacturer of comfortable footwear. Approximately 13,000 pairs of Waldläufer shoes are produced each day using traditional craftsmanship and the latest, environmentally-friendly technology. Waldläufer Sandals are made of natural leathers and nubuck. Every style includes a removable footbed that makes it ideal for use with custom and off-the-shelf orthotics. I am all about comfortable shoes, so I was excited to try a very versatile spring style, the Fiona.

The Fiona has quickly become my go-to style for work, travel, or casual weekend activities. This lightweight sandal made in a natural leather upper has an all leather lining along with adjustable velcro straps and an open heel. Fiona has a perfectly supportive fit for medium to wide widths. I normally would order a wide given the option, but as you can see, the fit is practically perfect. They are so so comfortable!

The two inch heel height can take you from work to play. It is just enough of a lift to make it a sandal you can wear with anything. They have wonderful support and stability. I felt like they were made just for my feet. They even have removable footbeds featuring arch and metatarsal support. The firm counters allow for better heel fit and control.

I also love the different leather textures in the Fiona. It gives it a unique look that goes with more wardrobe options. If you look at the shoe on the right in the photo below, you will see an elastic piece near the toe. This extra stretch allows for more comfort and a more perfect fit.

In the photo above, you will see the buckle at the back of the shoe. That is merely for decoration. The real way to adjust the shoe is by using the velcro strap. How cool is that? They are so easy to take on and off. You can adjust them to the perfect fit.

If you are looking for a versatile sandal that's great for work, travel, and leisure, check out the Fiona Sandal. From the adjustable straps to the open toe, Fiona can stylishly meet all of your wardrobe needs.

Visit Waldläufer to check out all of the spring styles! I love the gold tennies and the navy slip ons shown below. Waldläufer shoes are cute, on trend, and most importantly, super comfortable.

Tea Lovers Unite

If you love tea like I do, you will love the variety and quality of Adagio Teas. They know tea. It is easy to see why they have become the most popular destination for tea online, and among the highest rated companies on BizRate and Epinions.

As you can see, I placed a big order online and it was delivered right to my door. You will find everything from gourmet teas to green tea to black tea to iced tea to innovative tea-ware to teacups and so much more! Your tea arrived in fresh sealed bags and you can choose from tea bags or loose leaf.

One of my favorite loose leaf teas that I ordered was the lemongrass ginger tea. This uplifting, aromatic tea contains a zesty lemongrass and ginger blend with soothing peppermint and licorice root. Try it with a spoonful of honey for that perfect therapeutic cup. Ginger helps clear your sinuses and calm your cold, peppermint helps to soothe your stomach, lemongrass and peppermint provide uplifting caffeine-free energy, while licorice root coats and calms your sore throat. Mmm ... so good.

I also love the spearmint teabags. A native of the Mediterranean, spearmint was revered by ancient Romans for its ability to 'stir up the mind.' It continues to be savored for its refreshingly clear aroma and soothing qualities. It is rounded, slightly smoother and more grounded taste than peppermint, with warming and cooling notes. I love this one after dinner to cleanse my palette and soothe my stomach.

Then there is is iced tea, my absolute favorite. I love Adagio's peppermint iced tea. Can you tell I love minty teas? Adagio's premium herbal tea comes in convenient cold-brew pouches. I just steep a pouch in hot water for five minutes and add ice. This variety contains premium peppermint leaves from Oregon, USA. It is so delicious and refreshing!

Something else I suggest trying is the white sugar crystals. An ideal tea sweetener, these crystals are sugar in its purest form. If you like your tea sweet, there's no better way to impart savory notes to your favorite cup. Adding a few sugar crystals will sweeten tea without distorting its flavor profile, pleasing both your sweet tooth and taste buds. It is so easy to just add a few to your hot or iced tea.

The May Beauty Edit

May means it is that much closer to summer. School is almost out, Mother's Day is coming, and we will be spending more time outdoors. Flowers are blooming and everything is green and new. Speaking of new, here are some new beauty picks for you to try this month.

Let's start with shampure thermal dry conditioner from Aveda. It instantly conditions, detangles and softens hair in between washes, while a calming aroma with 25 pure flower and plant essences naturally refreshes all hair types and textures. To use, shake well. Holding bottle 6-8 inches away, spray lightly onto dry hair, focusing on mid-lengths to ends. Follow with heat device of your choice for a more polished look. It smells so good and works perfectly with the next pick. 

Shampure dry shampoo revives hair with naturally derived powders that absorb excess oil and impurities. The non-aerosol powder mist absorbs excess oil between shampoos. To use, tip bottle upside down. Return upright. Turn cap to expose nozzle. Lightly squeeze bottle to puff powder at roots. (Squeeze bottle very lightly until you see how much comes out with each puff. Tip bottle as needed to increase powder flow.) Massage powder into your scalp and restyle as desired. It can take some getting used to, but once you have mastered it, you can extend a blow dry, revive hair after a workout, refresh hair while traveling, or transform hair before a night out.

Both of these Aveda products calm the senses with an aroma with 25 pure flower and plant essences including certified organic lavender, petitgrain and ylang ylang.

Pixi Beauty sent me this trio of glycolic glow getters! Used together, they cleanse, tone, and exfoliate to get a beautiful glow. Start with the Glow Mud Cleanser. This deep pore cleansing mud gently exfoliates while purifying for radiant skin. It is enriched with 5% glycolic and soothing botanicals. It provides deep pore cleansing, leaving skin clean and glowing. I love how refreshed it makes my skin feel.

Next, you will want to tone your skin with the Glow Peel Pads. These advanced exfoliating treatment pads reveal a glowing, youthful-looking complexion. They contain 20% glycolic acid to reveal brighter, healthier, more radiant skin over time. Use them to help minimize pores, breakouts, and fine lines while promoting an even skintone. They are also enriched with vitamin E and aloe vera to nourish and soothe. To use, apply to the face, neck, décolleté, and tops of hands and leave on for 2-3 minutes. Then rinse with cool water to neutralize the peel. Don't forget to use SPF when using a product with glycolic acid.

Finally, you will exfoliate with the Overnight Glow Serum. This concentrated exfoliating gel helps to reveal a more even and radiant skintone overnight. It is formulated with 10% glycolic acid and arginine, and can helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and fade sun spots over time. It is also enriched with cucumber and aloe vera extracts to calm skin, as well as vitamins A, C & E to nourish. To use, massage 2 to 3 drops onto cleansed, toned skin before moisturizer. This trio from Pixi Beauty has made my skin look and feel radiant!

Need a lip liner that combines 24-hour, water-resistant wear and weightless color? Of course you do! Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Liner comes in 30 shades matched to Kat Von D’s iconic lipsticks. I haven't tried the lipsticks, but the everlasting lip liner is amazing. The comfortable, long wear, matte, high-pigment formula pushes the limits of performance. It truly delivers ultimate pigmentation, immediate dry down, and effortless definition. This liner is so comfortable, it feels like nothing. I received the shade Lolita, and I love it!

Next from Mally Beauty, comes the Ultimate Performance See The Light Concealer and the Evercolor Shadow Stick Extra. If you want to bake your makeup to give skin a lifted look while also concealing dark circles and spots, try this pre-baked, invisible finish concealer. The color correcting formula evens skin tone as the texture blends seamlessly to an invisible finish. Mally has formulated this creamy concealer to melt into your skin upon contact - leaving you with a baked makeup look! 

Mally's Evercolor Shadow Stick Extra's are the queen of multi-tasking and stay looking fierce from the minute you put them on until you decide to take them off! You have 45 seconds of playtime until your eye shadow is smudge-proof, transfer-proof, and crease-proof. The shades are creamy and pigmented. Use the handy stick to apply, then smudge it with your finger. Love these shadow sticks!

Hydroxatone Hydrologic Active Infusion Moisture Mask is an ultra hydrating mask that envelops skin, resulting in deep moisture. It is formulated with bio-mimetic ingredients which help attract and bind moisture to skin. These help skin's ability to remove toxins and to remain naturally-healthy, by providing long-lasting, locked-in hydration. Just apply a quarter-size amount onto damp face, and gently massage for 60 seconds. Leave on for 3 minutes and rinse with warm water. I have been using it once a week to deliver extra moisture.

The Hydroxatone deep moisture sheet mask is formulated with humectants, some that are found naturally-occurring in skin. These attract water from the environment and bind it to skin, delivering reparative moisture, enhancing and restoring it's supple, radiant beauty. It also contains skin-loving botanicals to help maintain skin's natural beauty and to provide a more luminous complexion and lit-from-within radiance. I love a good sheet mask and these did not disappoint.

Looking for a floral fresh scent perfect for May? JLo JLuxe opens with top notes of bergamot, raspberry and pineapple and leading into a luxurious bouquet of violet, damask rose and ylang-ylang. It is a nice blend of warmth and florals. The scent is cozy and it stays with you for longer than just a few hours.
