lifestyle, review Ghost Bed Luxury Sheet Review * February 27, 2019

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!

Thanks so much for reading, as always <3

advice, college A Guide To Studying More Effectively December 19, 2018

Download As Many Books As You Can

We’re in a very privileged position living in the era that we’re in. There’s so much technology around to help us, and we can use it when studying. I often find that going to the library and looking for books is so tiresome. They’re almost always taken, and then you feel pressure to rush through them quickly when you do manage to rent them. Instead, I prefer downloading books on a mobile device or computer. Here, you can use things like MarginNote to write notes and annotations on the pages without worrying about getting kicked out of college for defacing a book! Even if you get a book and take pictures of it, you can often convert the photo to a pdf and then access the file like that.

Or, if you really want to be cheeky, you can sometimes buy eBooks on Amazon, screenshot the pages you need, then ask for a refund within a week. The whole point of this is that you now have study materials that you can doodle on and write notes or underline things without ruining a library book. This helps so much as it keeps your notes all in one place.

Do What Works For You

This sounds like pointless advice, but what I mean is that everyone studies best in different ways. Your friends may want to study in a group as it helps them get out of their dorm and actually do some work. But, if this doesn’t work for you, then you have to say no and do your own thing.

If you work best on your own in absolute silence, then go ahead and do that. If you like listening to music as you work, then crack on with that as well. Don’t copy what other people do because it might not work for you even if it works for them!

Create A Timetable

Personally, my biggest weakness is not knowing where to start. So, to counter this, I made timetables to help me study. Every day, you should split your routine up so you’re studying something for a few hours, then you rest, then you move onto another topic, and so on.

Instantly, there’s more structure to everything, and you feel like you actually have things to do. It makes you feel bad if you don’t stick to the schedule as well, which is an added bonus.

This advice should help you study more effectively, and ensure that you graduate with your college degree! Don’t overdo it with 18-hour long study sessions as this ends up frying your brain. Take regular breaks where you can relax and clear your mind, and you’ll be mentally charged for the next study session.

I hope you enjoyed the post! Thanks so much for reading and good luck on your finals!

life, wishlist 5 Things to Add to Your Holiday Wishlist December 3, 2018

I can’t believe that it’s already December! It’s crazy how quickly this year has flown by. I’m sure that by now someone has asked you what you want for Christmas (or whichever holiday you celebrate) and you might not know what to give them for an idea. I never know what to ask for Christmas, especially because I’m the kind of person that if I want it – I’ll buy it myself. However, if you need some ideas of some “different” things to put on your list, keep on reading!

Glasses from Warby Parker

You might be thinking, “Rae, what?”, but hear me out! If you need a prescription for glasses, you know how expensive they can be and how hard it is to find a great looking pair for a great price. I spent maybe an hour trying to find the right pair of glasses for me the last time I had an eye exam, I’m pretty sure the guy waiting on me was getting a bit irritated since I was taking so long. Warby Parker offers a FREE Home Try-On option so you can try multiple frames out in the comfort of your own home. You can take all the time you need, just ship them back after 5 days and if you’re not pleased with the ones you selected, you can always grab more the next time. Not only does Warby Parker offer quality frames & lenses for a great price, they also have awesome travel cases, cleaning kits and cases to hold one pair of frames. They also have gift cards which is the bomb, you really can’t lose.

WeatherTech Car Liners

I don’t know about you, but I hate cleaning my car. I feel like no matter how many times I clean it, it doesn’t look clean. The floor mats that I currently have in my car aren’t the perfect fit and so much of the car floor is exposed because of that. WeatherTech car liners are literally perfect to solve all my problems. Since these are a bit on the pricey side, that’s why I’m deciding to put them on my Christmas list! They’re practical and safer (since my floor mats constantly shift). I think it’s really cool that these are specifically made to fit your car perfectly and cover more area than normal floor mats. I think they’re definitely worth the investment.

Smart Home Technology from Nest

I’m not sure how many of my readers are living on their own yet, but I think that having some smart home technology is a great idea. I know that some people are super iffy about this kind of stuff, however, I think it’s awesome. From thermostats that you can control from your phone while you’re away to smart locks and doorbells, they’ve got you covered. Especially around this time of year with package snatchers, it’s always a good idea to have a bit of extra protection for your home.

Weighted Blanket

I’m sure you’ve seen weighted blankets around. They’re a pretty hot topic right now and for good reason. Weighted blankets are good to help reduce stress (there’s science behind it). They are good for individuals who have anxiety or sensory issues but I feel like pretty much anyone would be able to benefit from one. I always have a blanket on me, regardless of the temperature. I just like the feeling of having something on me (that sounds so weird), it’s comforting. I bet you’d get such a good nights sleep with this blanket!

A Voucher for a Class

I don’t know about you, but I love learning and I love making things with my hands. I think that getting a voucher for an art class would be a great gift. You could do a Paint Nite class and leave with a canvas painted by you, or you could do a glass blowing class – there’s so many options. I think this would be awesome to receive and you could even use the class to make something for someone else or yourself. I definitely want to take a glass blowing class in the future or maybe a ceramics class, where you would work on the wheel.

I hope you enjoyed the post. What’s something on your wishlist? Let me know! 🙂

Thanks so much for reading, as always <3
