First off, I take my sleep very seriously. Now that I am a mama of two precious (but extremely busy) babies, I find myself looking forward to getting into bed every night. Most days I actually can’t wait to crawl into my soft, cozy, comfortable bed.
I’m normally climbing into bed at midnight (although I’m trying to be better about going to bed earlier!) after finishing up work and getting up at 5:30 a.m. to make it to the gym, so it’s safe to say that I want the sleep that I actually do get to be ahhhmazing! I recently came up with a routine that’s helped me get better, more peaceful sleep. I will always shower before bed, do my skincare routine, and brush my teeth.
I then turn on my diffuser and use lavender or serenity essential oil to help set a calm and peaceful mood. I get my oils from @jewlhinton (she is awesome and so educational, definitely check her out!) I also have been doing guided meditations that I am LOVING. If you haven’t heard of it, google it! It’s amazing. When I took a question to insta story, it was so fun hearing how many people were also into it! I definitely got some great recommendations and have started using the app Headspace.
Now, your sleep is only going to be as good as your bedding is. Mr. Thompson & I are extremely into quality bedding, pillows, blankets, etc. and always have been! (When we were first married and poor college students, we saved and saved for the comforter that we wanted instead of going on date nights or eating out and it was so worth it!) If you have been following me for a while, then you’ve probably seen me tag, talk about, and post about Cariloha before.
It’s basically because I’m #OBSESSED with their brand. I first got their sheets over a year ago, and they are seriously life changing (no, I’m not exaggerating!) They’re amazingly soft and comfortable. They are made from bamboo, feel so luxurious, and are so much cooler than any other sheets I’ve ever used! They’re actually thermal-regulating, meaning that they can keep you cool during the warmer months, and warmer during the cooler months. All of their products are also anti-odor and naturally antibacterial.
Because I’m so hooked on their sheets and have been for over a year now, I wanted to try more of their products! (I’m basically their number one fan. Funny story, when I was visiting San Francisco with my mom about a year ago, I was SO stoked I was able to visit their store in person and I took a photo in their store front and sent it to them, haha! I told you, I’m obsessed. I now have the Cariloha pillows, mattress, sheets, and comforter, and I’ll tell you why I love each one! A mattress is the most important part of your sleep, in my opinion! I was beyond stoked to get this mattress because I have heard amazing reviews on it.
It’s seriously so comfortable and soft. The mattress adapts to your body shape, alleviating pressure off the body’s main contour points. My husband and I are in love. If you’ve talked to him in the last couple months, he’s probably brought up this mattress because he’s so impressed with it! Like the sheets and comforter, the mattress is designed to help you sleep cooler. Seriously read more about the mattress here, because it is SO awesome! Oh, and it comes in a convenient box which makes the whole set up process really easy.
We got the pillows as well which are made from bamboo charcoal memory foam. They are beyond comfortable, hypoallergenic, and breathable. The cover is removable and washable, too! On our bed, I’m sure you’ve seen that we have this quilt. It’s silk, so I am very careful with it. We don’t dare sleep with it! We fold it to the bottom of the bed, and instead sleep with our Cariloha comforter. I’m not kidding when I say that snuggling into this comforter is my very favorite part. It’s perfect for all seasons!
Its interior + exterior are made of viscose from bamboo. Have you had a duvet that kind of bunches up or loses its fluff in certain spots? This one doesn’t! It keeps its fluffiness and is so extremely heavenly comfortable!
If you are interested in some good quality, luxury sleep, then you need some Cariloha in your life!
