Good night sleep for a better start-eve brand review & giveaway
Hi Guys and happy "win day" - because "hump day" sounds boring , but i will write on that one later . First things first - How did you sleep today ?
If you are anything like me - you are probably not getting enough sleep that leads to a very slow start the very next morning - think a bad case of Monday's after a night out - id like to point out here that i am too old to survive a night out and my wheelie bin goes out more than i do , anyway back to the subject
According to the sleep council we need between 7-9 hours of sleep a day - to help not only our bodies to recharge and recover -but its also good for our heart and cardiovascular system - not to forget mental well being - i won't bore you with the charts- but after reading a few surveys conducted on people -when asked what is important for a good night sleep the first thing on people list was
- A Good mattress
Seems easy enough right ? wrong ! Those who know me from my instagram know already that i am a disabled veteran's wife and his sleep patterns are really bad due to his PTSD and disabilities - safe to say that over past 10 years we have tried few mattresses to help my husband have a comfortable night sleep- for most part of those 10 years we were failing miserably - i wouldn't write this post otherwise .
Mr Grumpy -have always complained about the way we sleep, there were many reasons some of them included springs digging into him or my "ebay" memory foam mattress, then my other "clever idea"the extra topper makes him sweat (not a good look on anyone) so i blamed it on the duvet as you would (it was also a cheaper option that buying another mattress yet again . Duvets were changed yet our nights didn't improve one bit
Then on a one gloomy day "eve" a sleep guru company contacted me and asked if i wanted to try their one (and only ) mattress they sell - i must admit it got me exited! I have reached a point in my life that i just want my husband to stop bloody moaning (and sweating -eww again)
When the delivery arrived i was greeted by an equally beautiful box with trademark yellow we couldn't believe that a king size mattress fitted in this size box- and one of our dogs claimed it as her new bed - shes a bit weird like that and sleeps on everything besides her own bed .
What is different about EVE mattress you might ask ?
For starers - its yellow ! - my favorite color - but this mattress its so much more than just a yellow colored mattress , Eve only makes 1 mattress and one mattress fits all - gone are the days of me and my husband searching though mountains of options available (some of fancy options a sales rep couldn't even pronounce ) only to fight over the type of mattress we want to have -i love a good support and Mr. Grumpy his comfort and softness - No wonder we are tossing and turning at night when each and one of us have different preferences .
So eve team have taken the care of it for us - thanks to 12 years of testing and developing and 70 000 mattresses after - they came up with the final and beautifully crafted mattress - that is constructed from 3 layers - foam for support on the bottom , cooling layer in the middle and Contouring memory foam on the top all wrapped beautifully in a breathable cover. Top cover can be removed for wash to keep it fresh thanks to a handy zip.On top of everything eve team threw in 10 year warranty for peace of mind x
So understandably i was sold on trying eve mattress! - Mr grumpy not so much .. not yet anyway (hes such a pessimist !!! )- Olivia on the other hand jumped straight in- literally!
Evening came and me with Mr.Grumpy in tow settled in for our fist night -and here is where the magic happened (no not this kind of magic ! ) - mattress was firm enough to give a perfect support , it did not got as hot as the other memory foam mattresses (and toppers ) we have tried in the past-thanks to eve breathable cooling layer. If you ever had a memory foam mattress before you will know exactly how hot that thing can get - so far we haven't had that problem with eve mattress .
By morning my husband surprisingly haven't had any complains - this in itself is a win win situation -in fact we both managed to sleep all though the night , we also loved that eve mattress is so thick - you cant see it on the pictures as my bed isn't a divan kind but -trust me this baby is thick and luxurious , and we both feel it is build to last
Waking up in the morning without a back pain or stiffness for me is a great recipe for a better start of the day , besides healthy diet (that i still need to work on ), good mattress that supports you where you need it makes a huge difference , the fact that we both want to go to bed to watch some movie instead of sitting on the sofa till silly o'clock in the night time - just proves how god eve mattress actually is ! (and that yellow trim )
Safe to say that we both have fallen in love with our bed again and we both enjoy our weekend lie-in - that is if our daughter let us as she tends to wake us up at silly o'clock in the morning asking of i can drive to the nearest shop to get her a Pokemon card
