SLEEP NUMBER® SleepIQ™ technology

Do you have a sleep number bed? Have you ever heard of the SleepIQ technology? If not you are missing out! I must admit I do not own a sleep number bed, YET. After visiting a sleep number store, and seeing it with my own eyes, and feeling it with my own back, I can attest to the fact that it is AMAZING! This is a case where the product lives up to the hype of the sales pitch. This is not one of those "As seen on TV" products that you order, only to find out it is not what you expected.

I like a soft, almost feathery bed. My Husband likes a firm, almost like laying on boards bed. You can see why we would butt heads on choice of mattress. Most of the time I get my way and get a nice soft mattress, but I have had to compromise for him as well. The thing is, a soft bed hurts his back while a hard bed hurts mine. It's a rock and a hard place situation! This is where the Sleep Number bed comes into play, I can adjust my side of the bed to my liking, and he can adjust his side of the bed to his liking. We tested this in the Sleep Number store, and we fell in love with this feature! It is truly the best of both worlds! You can adjust your bed to YOUR number, and you can change your number, you can be consistent, whatever your needs are the bed can be adjusted to fit them!

The only negative for me and this will not be a negative for everyone, but the mattress does exceed my available budget. I should add, however that my budget is small. Three teenagers will severely limit many things, and sadly for me this is one of them. The cost is a bit more than you might pay for say, a pillow-top mattress, but it would be worth it. Consider it an investment for your back, or whatever else may ail you as a result of how you sleep, or what you sleep on. Since visiting the store, I have begun saving to purchase a sleep number bed for my home. After Christmas I expect to amp up the amount of money I am putting into savings, so I can get my new bed!

I stumbled onto this bed as part of a mission for Smiley360. It's a word of mouth marketing site that urges consumers like me to voice their opinions in exchange for products and various other perks. You don't HAVE to like a product to promote it, companies use opinions of consumers to improve on the negatives of their products. You can check out Smiley360's Sleep Number page HERE.

Go ahead and click, check it out, visit a sleep number store. You won't regret it! And if you enjoy trying products go ahead and join Smiley360, it is a fun, exciting way to be an informed consumer!

Nescafe Coffeemate - Ohh La La

If you have read through my blogs from the past, you may know that I am a member of multiple word of mouth marketing sites. The concept is simple, I try a product, I give my honest opinion regarding the product, leave reviews, let others know about the product, the good and the bad. I was very lucky to receive the new Nescafe Coffeemate product. The obvious, the Nescafe is the coffee part, the Coffeemate well what is the perfect mate for coffee? The cream, ahh yes Coffeemate is the cream part. The two combine for a truly unique coffee experience, and an affordable experience at that. It can be as strong or as weak as you like it. You control the spoon, put as much or as little as you want. Delight your senses to your liking. I received the new NESCAFE with Coffee-Mate free from Smiley360. I sample products and give my honest opinion. Why don't you head on over HERE for a .75 coupon to try some at a discount!

Coppertone ClearlySheer

I was given the opportunity to try Coppertone's ClearlySheer line of sunscreen recently. I am now convinced this is the best sunscreen I have ever used. Believe me, having 3 kids, I have tried a lot of brands/varieties.  I am very pleased with this line of Coppertone products. This stuff absorbs quickly, and leaves a light weight,  soft feeling to your skin when it does absorb. It states that it doesnt clog pores, and from my recent experiences this has not been an issue with me or any of my children. This sunscreen does have a matte finish which allowed me to wear it under my makeup without that greasy feeling that many sunscreens leave behind. I also want to add that it has a very pleasant fragrance. I tried both the spray and rub on lotion variety, and prefer the spray hands down. When it was super hot outside the spray goes on with a cooling effect, which makes for a momentary cool down when the sun is beatimg down!
