2. Weighted Blanket Love
I received the Bearaby Organic Cotton Weighted Knit Blanket as a christmas gift and have been obsessed ever since. A little on the pricier side for weighted blankets, what I love about the Bearaby is that I don’t heat up under it, and it doubles as a throw for on the couch. It’s a super luxe blanket and I am totally hooked. If you are looking for a more economical option for a weighted blanket, my son loves his Sealy Weighted Blanket from Bed Bath and Beyond.
I did quite a bit of research before purchasing this blanket for my 16 year old. What I like most about it is particular blanket is (1) the cover is removable and (2) the quilted design keeps the inner beads from shifting around within the blanket. So far, my son is very happy with it. The Altavida 12-lb. weighted blanket is a good value at under $31.99, but it doesn’t come with a washable cover, which made it a no-go for me. It also is only available in 12 pounds. (PRESS HERE) if you’d like to check it out at Kohls and read the reviews for yourself.
**note, my son and I both experienced wild and vivid dreams the first few times sleeping under our weighted blankets. I’ve read this is not unusual **
3. This Week’s Best of the Blogosphere
“We’re Good Enough, No Resolutions Needed”, was a timely read by Rena, author of the blog, Is This Mutton? (you may want to link over just to read more about how the name of her blog came to be!). Chock full of fun info and insight, in this particular post, Rena shares her musings on 2022 fashion trends, Pantone’s color of the year, quick ways to update your wardrobe; and why she doesn’t make New Year’s Resolutions… (PRESS HERE) to continue.
4. Instant Mood Lifter!
We all can use a little extra kick in our step these days, and I am currently obsessed with (THIS) Activate Mood-Lifter by Cardea Auset.
Using aromatherapy, the mix of patchouli, lemongrass and rosemary is ideal for giving you an extra boost in the morning, before a workout or when you’re struggling to focus. Cardea Auset | Nordstrom | reg $30, now $18 | (PRESS HERE)
