Choose the Best Mattress for Couples – Get a Good Night’s Sleep!

How to Choose the Best Mattress for Couples

Let’s face it. While we love being able to spend 6-8 hours per day laying next to our loved one, it has its challenges too! Whether it’s moving around, liking different temperatures etc. sleeping as a couple can be a bit trickier than sleeping by yourself when it comes to the quality of sleep – but there is help when you choose the right mattress!

Couple Sleeping Comfortably

Eight created the world’s first smart mattress designed to track and improve your sleep. Its proprietary technology tracks over 15 aspects of your sleep, including heart rate, breathing rate, deep/light sleep, tosses and turns, bed temperature, and room temperature. It can wake you up during the right moment in your sleep cycle with a smart alarm, keep you warm with dual-zone bed warming, and even brew your morning coffee!

Eight Smart Mattress Collection

The Eight Jupiter+ smart mattress is able to incorporate some of that technology to make it easier for you and your partner to get a good night’s sleep, even if you have different sleeping styles. We don’t want to go back to the Lucy and Ricky Ricardo days of sleeping in twin beds!

How the Eight Jupiter+ Smart Mattress Helps Couples Sleep:

1. Limited Motion Transfer
The Jupiter+ contains four layers of foam (plus one layer of technology). The third layer includes a supportive transition foam that is constructed in a way to minimize motion transfer. In other words, you won’t be disturbed by your partner as he or she switches sleep positions.

2. Dual-zone sleep tracking
Each side of the bed provides a sleep score every night. This is calculated through the sensors which detect heart rate, breathing rate, temperature of the room, temperature of the bed, tosses and turns, and more.

3. Dual-zone temperature control
A study by the University of Maryland School of Medicine found that women’s core temperatures were consistently higher, which means that they are more sensitive to colder temperatures (they are accustomed to being warm). With dual-zone temperature control on the Jupiter+, couples now have one less thing to argue about!

What issues do you and YOUR partner have sleeping next to each other?

Take the Hartz Quilted Plus Dog Pads No Leak Challenge for a Chance to Receive a Free Package 

We all love our dogs. Sometimes they need a little extra help when it comes to potty training or, particularly for older dogs, dealing with incontinence. Now there is something brand new to help out you and your pup: Hartz® Home Protection Quilted Plus dog pads. These pads are specially designed with highly absorbent quilt pockets using unique printed dot embossing that traps wetness in the center to prevent spreading and leaking, unlike dog pads with “standard quilting”, which cause wetness to spread.  Each Quilted Plus dog pad contains FlashDry® Gel Technology that turns liquid into gel. The Clean Powder scent eliminates odors with odor-harmonizing fragrance technology.

Quilted Plus dog pads are also perfect for lining dog crates and carriers, drying wet paws or fur after a snowy or rainy walk, or to protect car seats  while traveling.

Hartz® Home Protection™ Quilted Plus™ dog pads feature:

  • ‘DOT-TASTIC’™ DESIGN – Unique appearance, unlike any other dog pads, showcases highly efficacious pattern featuring dots of quilt pockets which help absorb odor and liquid to avoid leaks.
  • FLASHDRY® TECHNOLOGY: Liquid instantly turns to gel with FlashDry® technology, locking in moisture to prevent leaks and odors.
  • WON’T LEAK OR SPREAD: Unique Quilt Pockets trap wetness and odor in the center, unlike standard quilting that allow it to spread.
  • ODOR CONTROL: Harmonizing odor technology neutralizes odors, and features a pleasant clean powder scent.
  • ALSO RECOMMENDED FOR: Elderly or sick dogs, extended indoor stays, or for use while traveling.

You probably use other products in your home that already have quilting – things like baby and feminine products and paper towels. You know how much better a quilted paper towel is at picking up wetness compared to a non-quilted towel. Now just think of the same concept, but for your pet’s messes.

Hartz Quilted Dog Pad Yorkie

Hartz Home Protection is already America’s number one dog pad brand, so these new Quilted Plus pads just take the protection one step further. Another big plus is that  Hartz Home Protection Quilted Plus dog pads are affordable! You’ll find them for right around $4.99 for a 14 count package or $12.99 for a package of 50. The product is made in the USA.

Take the Hartz® Quilted Plus No Leak Challenge for a Chance to Win a Free Package 

Are you ready to give these pads a try with your dog? You’re invited to take the Hartz® Quilted Plus™ No Leak Challenge! Just compare your experience with Hartz® Home Protection™ Quilted Plus™ versus the brand you are currently using and sharing that experience on the Hartz® Facebook or Instagram page.

Softer Than Brittle Review and Reader Giveaway

I’ll be honest. I have never been a big fan of old-fashioned peanut brittle. When I was a kid, peanut brittle was a BIG tradition in our family, particularly around the holidays, but not something that I ever cared for. (Which I never would have wanted to admit to my Grandma – who usually made the brittle.) Do you know what I AM a big fan of? Softer Than Brittle!

Softer Than Brittle is a unique, soft and flaky gourmet nut brittle hand-crafted from a 60-year-old family recipe. It is a “better-for-you-brittle” in that it contains no preservatives, cholesterol, dairy, or hydrogenated oil. It’s even vegan!  Not only is Softer Than Brittle super delicious, soft and flakey, it also features a clean label with just 6 or 7 basic ingredients. Easy to understand – easy to know what you’re eating.

This gourmet, nut snack is made in small batches in a copper kettle. I’m not quite sure what that kettle being made of copper adds to the process, but I have a feeling it is something good because the end result is so delicious.

Softer Than Brittle is available in four varieties: Peanut, Almond, Cashew and Pecan. While I have tried and like them all, I really love the Almond flavor. It is SO yummy!

I have been enjoying Softer Than Brittle as an afternoon snack to tide me offer between lunch and dinner, but it could be used for so many other occasions including as an office treat, taking on road trips (the resealable pouches make it perfect for that), after school snacks and more. When will YOU eat Softer Than Brittle?

Reader Giveaway: One lucky Chic ‘n Savvy reader will win a prize pack of all 4 varieties of Softer Than Brittle: Peanut, Almond, Cashew and Pecan. To enter, just complete the entry form below by 11:59pm ET on 4/16/18. Good luck!
