The key ingredients to a perfect nights sleep and a luxurious breakfast in bed aren’t just the waffles, orange juice and chilled bubbly…it’s your bedding!
I know I’m not the only one that loves a good breakfast in bed. Waffles, bubbly, yogurt parfaits and a stack of good books is all part of the fun, especially on a lazy weekend morning. While I never thought I’d be the one to admit it, I’ve been really enjoying the early start of a morning on the weekends as an added bonus time to enjoy life a little slower than the usual busy Monday-Friday routines and long commutes. Something about lounging around in bed and around the home is just so peaceful, especially when you don’t have the urgency or obligations to be somewhere bright and early.
My need for long hours of sleep have been very apparent the past few years, and I can absolutely recognize if I didn’t get as many Zzz’s as I need. My productivity levels decrease, and even my eating habits change based on the numbers of hours slept. My body will crave menu items that are higher in sugar and carbs as a way to seek the energy I lost as a result of going to bed after 10:30, and at times I can definitely be a tad more irritable as a result as well. I’ve learned that it’s all in the bedding, mattress and bedroom environment that contribute to a restful night.
Thankfully, John and I lay our head to rest each night in a luxurious California King bed. Despite the fact that the bed itself claims a sufficient amount of space in our quaint San Francisco apartment, we couldn’t imagine sleeping in any other bed size. Considering John is 6′ 3”…it’s almost a necessity to have the larger bed size!
While our bed has been an absolute game changing aspect on the quality of sleep I get, I will admit it was a challenge to find a retailer that supplies quality, temperature regulating sheets in the size we need! So, when it was time to find a new retailer for a fresh set of sheets, I came across MattressFirm…duh (don’t ask me why it took so long for me to think of them)! We recently incorporated the DreamFit 5° Premium Bamboo Sheet Set to our bed a few weeks back…and let me tell you, these soft sheets take luxury to a new level, and we are never overheating throughout the night! In addition to these sheets, we added two Black Ice Memory Foam Pillows to our bed set and now, any breakfast in bed is just like how you would imagine in hotel…only in the comfort of our home!
