Sleeping like the Dead... With GhostPillow

Okay... the title of this post. I wouldn't be an English teacher if I didn't do plays on words and use idioms. I'd have to turn in my badge. And I really love that badge.

But it's also so very fitting. The idiom means to sleep so soundly that you seem... well... dead. haha!
And isn't sleeping soundly at the top of many of our wish lists? It certainly is on mine as a new mom. So when GhostBed reached out about a collaboration with a pillow, I was definitely game to try it. Their slogan is similarly punny... "Supernatural comfort."
My dog checking to make sure I'm still alive.

The Ghostpillow arrived and my husband immediately wanted me to open it.

I have NEVER seen him excited about any of my blog collaborations. He pulled it out of it's box and immediately said, "You're going to love this." He was right.
It was so, so soft, and yet supportive at the same time. Before my Ghostpillow I was solely sleeping on down pillows. I LOVE the softness, but they can definitely lack support. Not so with this. Every morning that I have woken up, I have zero neck pain or stiffness, and I haven't lost that soft comfort. I never want to leave my bed in the morning, and now thanks to my Ghostpillow it's even worse! (Luckily my sweet husband often brings me coffee in bed!)

Not leaving this spot!

The pillow also boasts a cooling aspect to keep you from feeling hot and clammy all night. You can definitely feel that on the pillow when you touch it. Very cool!

Now, for the price: $85. People will balk. "For a pillow?!" they ask in shock.
YES. ABSOLUTELY. I may have thought that at one point, but the more I thought about it, everyone seems to complain about lack of sleep, restlessness, tossing and turning... and yet do they arm themselves with the right supplies for a great night's sleep? We ask a lot of our pillow to use it every day for years...

Let's do some simple math. If you sleep every day  (Ha- which of COURSE you will) and use your pillow for a year that amounts to 24 cents a day. Yep, that's right- less than a quarter a day!
And Ghostpillow has an industry leading 5 year warranty. So even if it only lasts you those 5 years, now you are looking at the "oh so expensive price" of less than 5 cents a night.

Are you really going to tell me you can't afford a nickel a night for great sleep? Of course you can! And best of all, they have a 101 night trial. So truly there is nothing to lose.

I have one last little pillow tip= just for fun. I've always enjoyed ripping out the perfume samples in magazines to rub on my pillowcases before hopping into bed to read a book before falling asleep.
 It makes nighttime extra luxurious.

This post was done in collaboration with GhostPillow, but I only recommend things I truly love, so all opinions belong to me! :) I don't receive a commission if you buy one or anything- but you totally should!!

Friday Five: 8.24

One of my favorite bloggers does Friday Fives, and I wanted in on that today. I love just sharing random useful bits of information that make people's lives better or things that just provide a smile. So here we go!

1.  Recipes I'm LOVING

Copycat Applebee's Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Guys... this is SO GOOD. I've had it a lot from the restaurant and can honestly say this basically tastes EXACTLY LIKE IT. My husband and I loved going to Applebee's and splitting this with the 2 for $20, and then a couple months ago, our location just suddenly closed. All the Tears. But now with this recipe, I can at least enjoy this appetizer. Now if I could just find a copycat recipe for their Honey Pepper Chicken 4 cheese Mac.
Here you go: RECIPE
So cheesy and delcious!

Cafeteria Lincoln Logs

If you've never had one of these peanut butter/chocolate/coffee desserts you are MISSING out people. They are an all time favorite. Just try it and thank me later.
Here you go: RECIPE
You won't regret these... well maybe the scale will once you eat them all. Ha!

*Healthier* 2 Ingredient Pumpkin Cake

Yesterday I wanted something sweet and so I was looking through my pantry. I came up with a can of pumpkin and a boxed cake mix. So I googled those ingredients together, and low and behold a recipe popped up with JUST THOSE INGREDIENTS! What?! Score. So I immediately tried it. And within about half an hour, I had a delicious cake that tasted like fall. YES! And without eggs and oil, it's actually a fairly healthy option when you're craving cake. You're welcome! Techincally mine had 3 ingredients, because I only had yellow cake mix so I added a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice to my recipe, but a spice cake base won't need that. This is for sure what I'm making when my kid comes home one day and goes, I need to bring a dessert to ____ tomorrow.
Here you go: RECIPE
Fall in a cake

2. My Current Favorite Pieces from ShopLoveHaight 

I absolutely love my little boutique. I have had such a great response from people about what I carry. Here's a few of my favorite things- and you can buy them directly from this page! Pretty neat huh? :)

3. What I'm Reading

I am trying to become more intentional about reading. I can't even believe I'm saying this... I once wrote a Facebook status that made fun of people who had to make resolutions to read more. I used to say that was like breathing... Well, the joke's on me, because now I'm the busy mama, boutique owner, housewife, blogger that doesn't read.

I've gotten back into requesting from Net Galley and so I'm currently in the middle of a new book by Tatiana de Rosnay. She wrote Sarah's Key, which was excellent. I'm a chapter or two in as of last night and I'm laughing because while I'm enjoying the writing, I don't actually even know what the premise of the book is yet. Anyway, it's called The Rain Watcher, and they're currently in Paris, so what's not to love?
Here's a post of all my summer reads and my recommendations!

4. Vivian's 7 Month Birthday

I just recently rounded up some of my favorite items we had for her HERE.
I can't believe she is closer to her 1st birthday than she is to her birth day if you get what I'm saying. She is sitting up unassisted (albeit a bit wobbly) babbling like crazy, rolling all over the place, grabbing everything she can get her hands on, sleeping in her own room, eating solids, and has completely stolen our hearts.

I loved this cute little outfit I got her for $3 at Target. Rose gold stars?! Totally my thing.

5. My Most Useful Bullet Journaling Pages 

I am absolutely loving my bullet journal. Every morning with my coffee I get up and write down what needs to get done. Whether it's shipping out orders or creating style boxes for my amazing girls in my Facebook Group (Check it out HERE) or just things I need to do around the house,  my bullet journal is keeping me organized!
So I'm loving my weekly spreads, my cleaning schedule, my weight loss page, and reading my Bible verses that I put on my monthly spreads. Those can be seen on my Instagram!
All my pages can be seen in a post HERE.

That's all for today!
xoxo, Love.Haight
