Why A NECTAR Mattress Is My Choice For Better Slumber - PLUS a Giveaway

Disclosure: I received a NECTAR mattress in order to facilitate this review. All opinions expressed herein are 100% my own. 

I am so excited to have my daughter come home after she is away at college. There's no place like home, and I don't want her to forget that. So before she arrives, I crack open her bedroom windows, tidy up a little, and purchase everything I need to make her time at home, a memorable one. The last time she came home she mentioned that she was feeling the springs from her mattress through a 2" bed topper. Ugh...I had no idea the mattress was uncomfortable! As much as I dreaded the thought of mattress shopping, I wanted my daughter to come home to a comfy bed. So, my hunt for the perfect mattress had begun...

The beginning of the holiday season is only a few weeks away and before all the hustle and bustle of the season begins, I wanted to share a few ideas on how PeachSkinSheets can help you avoid stress during the holidays. From gift giving to preparing your home for guests, you will quickly see why PeachSkinSheets are a must have on your shopping list.  


Preparing for guests. When I first began using PeachSkinSheets over a year ago, I never 'dreamed' that over a year later I would still be going through a honeymoon phase with my sheets. There's nothing quite like the feeling of slipping into comfy sheets at the end of a long day. If you are having guests over the holidays, imagine how your guests willl feel after a long day of travel, to settle in for the night with cozy, comfy sheets. Retiring to a clutter-free room with water on the nightstand, healthy snacks and super soft sheets, is a perfect dreamy night for your guests. 

It's a Barilla Perfect Pasta Party!

Entertaining is all about cooking delicious food and enjoying time spent with friends and family! Gathering around the table for a meal is always a special time in our family. That's why I was so happy to receive a Barilla package in the mail. Barilla is the only pasta we serve in our house. And that's saying something, since my husband was born in Italy. His mother uses Barilla pasta, and my children told me after the latest visit to Italy, that the relatives use Barilla pasta. When Italians are serving it to their families, you KNOW it has to be the best!

Autumn is a great time of year to spend time outdoors. The air is crisp and cool, and the colorful fall leaves provide spectacular 360 degree views! I'm getting in on the fun and beauty of the fall season by staying active with my favorite outdoor activities! Apple picking, hiking in the woods, and taking long walks, are my favorite ways to stay fit in fall, and I find if I spend 20-30 minutes outside every day, I feel happier and healthier.
