Nectar Mattress 1 Month Update

NECTAR makes the most comfortable mattress available and sells direct to consumer cutting out the middle man. One thing that really attracts me Nectar is that they offer a Full Comfort Guarantee and a Forever Warranty plus a full year sleep trial!

Now, what you came for, the 1 month update!!! 

We have been sleeping on the Nectar Mattress for a month now and still in love! This has to be the best mattress we have ever slept on. No matter how I sleep, I do not wake up with back pain nor neck pain (thanks to the pillows!).

As far as the feel goes I love it. I don’t wake up in the middle of the night, and I fall asleep faster. It has a good balance of cradling you for the first few inches, and then supporting you so you don’t feel like you are in a hammock. I weigh about 235 lbs, so a lot of softer memory foams felt like I was sinking too far into them. I’m naturally a warm sleeper, but it seems that I am a lot cooler sleeping on the Nectar. Overall, hands down, the best mattress on the market and worth the money!

Sox Box Subscription Box

The Oddsox Sox Box is hands down one of the coolest and most unique sock subscription box that I’ve ever received.
Unlike some monthly sock boxes, Oddsox actually delivers some pretty crazy, cool sock designs. If you love getting socks branded by some of the biggest companies on earth like Pepsi, Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, and more, you’ll love these socks.

Oddsox kindly sent me some socks to review so here are my honest thoughts.

Besides the colorful box they come in, you get a sticker and we got a air freshener for the car shaped like socks!

The two pairs we received I loved! The roses are my fav but having a pair of socks looking like a K playing card is awesome!

How much is the Sox Box?

Here’s how much it costs to join the club:

$10 a month  for 1 pair of socks

$20 a month  for 2 pairs of socks

$30 a month for 4 pairs of socks

$75 a month for 10 pairs of socks

Shipping is free and you can cancel at any time.

JadeCrate Subscription Box

JadeCrate Boho Box Subscription is a new boho lifestyle subscription box. For $49.99 a month, you will receive 5 to 7 items chosen to bring boho style to your home, office, wardrobe and spirit. Items can range from edible organic treats, global fair-trade handcrafted home goods, artisan accessories, or all-natural skin products. A smaller version is also available for $25 a month and will include 3 items chosen from the same categories.

This is the view upon opening the box. I actually got a real good smell from the bag of tea!

Hmong Batik Makeup Bag from Global Groove. It is a traditional Hmong hill tribe batiked cotton combined with flexi, easy-wipe and waterproof lining. It is a decent size at 7 inches by 5 inches.

Darjeeling Tea by The Tao of Tea and a 18 Rabbits Organic Date, Pecan, and Coconut Bar

Mandala Cuff was gorgeous! It is hand embroidery and embellished with block-printed fabric and ball loop closure

The last item in the box was a gold market necklace. This is a stately gold plated metal coin necklace that overlaps a leather strap

The value was there, everything had that fun boho vibe, most of the items were handcraft and I like the variety of items, with some edibles, jewelry, home decor. I really liked this box, and this can become a great boho style box in the incoming months!


Kamedis Skin Care

Kamedis manufactures a wide variety of natural health and beauty products, and has recently made inroads into the North American market. The goal of Kamedis is to offer effective, Bio-Herbal Skin Care based on botanicals used in traditional and naturopathic medicine.

Recently, I was sent over a selection of Kamedis products to try out. Of course, I was curious as I have never tried the brand plus all the products seem safe for my 13 year old son:

Topic Skin Face & Body Cream is based on a non-irritating, botanical extract formula that has been dermatologically tested for your skin care needs. It relieves & hydrates extremely dry, red, itchy and irritated skin.

Topic Skin Face & Body Wash is a great cleanser that soothes itchy, dry and irritated skin quickly and gently. It help to cleanse the skin without drying out plus it moisturizes, soothes and nourishes the skin.

AC-Clear Face Cleaner provides rapid relief for red and irritated skin. Gently cleanses oily-prone skin without drying. Removes sebum excess from the skin.

AC-Clear Spot Treatment helps to reduce oily skin areas and blemishes while covering and concurrent dehydration of blemishes. Also, it can be applied under the make-up

AC-Clear Face Cream soothes and calms the appearance of red and irritated skin. Visibly improves oily skin imperfections and removes oily secretions. You can use this cream daily and I love that it can be used on kids over age 3.

SEBO & PSO Dandruff Shampoo is a mild and gentle anti-dandruff formula for cleansing scaly, sensitive and itchy scalp. It removes and prevents dandruff, calms and relaxes irritated and reddened scalp, cleanses scalp and hair, gives the hair shine and suppleness.

I have been using a lot of these products on my 13 year old son as he has started to deal with acne and dandruff. I will say, he has somewhat sensitive skin and these products did not irritate him. I actually seen a vast improvement in his dandruff and breakouts! Kamedis is a product brand that for my family, is a must have!
