GhostPillow Review *

by

Hey my loves! I am so happy that it’s finally starting to warm up a little bit in Massachusetts. It’s making it a little easier to get out of bed in the morning, but I can’t only credit the Spring weather. I’ve been trying out this new pillow from GhostBed and it’s really made a difference in my sleep.

First Impressions

When you open up the box, you’ll be surprised at how well a pillow can be packaged! It was wrapped in branded tissue paper and had a nice dust (I suppose that’s what you’d call it?) cover to it. I like that their logo is embroidered into the pillow but I was worried that it was going to interfere with my sleeping, but you won’t even notice that it’s there. I’m a sucker for packaging, so it needs to wow me.

Sleep is so important!

It’s even more important to wake up feeling well rested and refreshed! I like a pillow that’s not too soft but not too hard, something that isn’t bulky or too petite. I’ve always been a fan of memory foam pillows but noticed that some of them would make my neck hurt in the morning because they were too bulky. I tried ones that were thinner but I still woke up with a sore neck. I haven’t experienced any of that since swapping pillows so I’m super pleased.

Cooling Technology in a Pillow

I’m thankful that GhostBed sent me their pillow to try out because it’s seriously perfect! It has cooling technology in it which is so neat and not something I realized I needed. Who knew that you needed a pillow to keep you cool? The pillow is also engineered to keep your head supported without overextending your neck. No need to fluff your pillow to get a good nights rest! I will definitely be purchasing one of these for my boyfriend since he and I have been fighting over it – that’s how good it is! I would also like to point out that they have a 101-Night Sleep Trial which is an awesome perk! The pillow also comes with a 5-year warranty, even better.GhostBed also has mattresses, bedding and accessories. Definitely check them out if you’re in the market for any of those! I highly recommend them. With every purchase you get free shipping, AND a warranty on your product. It’s a win-win.

If you’re in the market for a new pillow that you won’t recommend, I definitely recommend the GhostPillow!

I hope you enjoyed the post and that you’ll check out GhostBed!

Thanks so much for reading, as always <3

Ghost Bed Luxury Sheet Review *

by

Hey guys! Today’s post is a re-post from a previous post I had up. I’ve been having some issues with my blog and recent posts since I switched hosting sites. I unfortunately wasn’t able to save my posts but I guess this is a learning lesson for myself and to be more mindful to keep backups of my posts.

So if you previously missed this post, well I guess you’re in luck since it’ll seem new to you!

Today I’m writing about these awesome luxury bed sheets from GhostBed. I always have trouble finding sheets that fit my bed well and also feel good at the same time, I’m sure you’ve had the same problem before too! There is nothing worse than feeling sheets in the store to only put them on your bed and they’re less than satisfactory. You’re probably wondering what makes these sheets so special and different…well! They’re made of Supima cotton and Tencel fibers. We all know what cotton is but I’m sure you’re curious about Tencel fibers. Tencel fibers are a plant based fiber that can regulate temperature and resist bacteria and allergens. Tencel fibers are also good for regulating temperature and absorbing moisture. I would also like to point out that the Supima cotton is made of cotton that is grown in the U.S. and it’s more durable than other cottons.

I’m a huge fan of these sheets, and my boyfriend Tyler is too. They’re so soft and comfortable. I also really like that they have a GhostGrip so that they stay in place, most sheets always slip off of our mattress since we have a memory foam topper on it too. I was surprised that these sheets we’re deep enough to cover our mattress and topper without moving.

So some more awesome things about these awesome sheets is that they come with a 3-year limited warranty! I think items having a warranty on them is super important, especially if it’s something you invest your money into. GhostBed will also ship your purchase to you for free (which is always a win in my book!) I would also like to point out that GhostBed has a mattress that is great for side-sleepers which I’m definitely interested in investing into, since my boyfriend and I are both side-sleepers.

I am so stoked about these sheets and that I actually have a set that’s super soft and comfortable. These sheets come in two colors, white and grey. We got the grey color since it matched our decor better (I hope that maybe they’ll come out with more colors soon!) I’ve struggled with finding sheets that are comfy but also keep me cool at night. I think that these sheets are amazing and I’ll never go back to anything else.

If you’re in the market for a new set of sheets, I definitely recommend these. They are SO worth it.

I hope you enjoyed the post and that you’ll check out GhostBed!

Supporting Yourself Through College

by

Getting into college is a major achievement, however, many people will struggle to pay for it whilst they’re there. In addition to the cost of tuition, there are also living costs to consider, which can make college a difficult time financially for many. Fortunately, there are ways that you can support yourself through college to make sure you don’t have to sacrifice your degree for financial reasons.

Choose a college that’s closer to home

If living costs seem like they’re going to be unmanageable during your time at college, then one of the options you have is to live at home while you study. This will save you a lot of money and means you won’t have to move far away from your family to go to college. While you might be concerned about missing out on dorm life, it’s easier than you think to make going to college while living at home work.

Consider distance learning

There are different ways to earn your degree, and you might find that distance learning is more appealing if you need to financially support yourself while you learn. Distance learning can be particularly beneficial for completing further education, such as pursuing a masters degree after getting your undergrad. Some options include online master degrees in social work, or psychology, and you can take the time to study around work. Distance learning enables you to enjoy a more flexible education, which might be a better fit for your financial circumstances.

Work while you learn

Having a job whilst at college is more common than you think. Many students find it necessary to pick up some part-time work to help cover tuition or living costs. Whether you pick up an on-campus job or you work online doing something creative, there are different options available to you to help you support yourself. Make sure to balance studying, work and your social life to ensure you have a well-rounded college experience.

Look for scholarships

Scholarships can be a great way to help make it through college, and unlike student loans, they don’t need to be paid back. The Department of Education has some excellent guidance for finding and applying for scholarships, and you can also research local initiatives that you might qualify for. While a scholarship can provide your finances a boost, it’s worth bearing in mind that it might not cover your full college funding.

College can be a good opportunity to develop better financial awareness and start learning more about the value of money. By learning to take care of your financial health, you can set yourself up for a positive future and appreciate the value of working hard for the things you want in life. Anything is possible if you’re willing to succeed, so make sure you explore all of the ways you can support yourself through college.

I hope you enjoyed the post!
