How You Can Get the Best Sleep Ever: A Big Fig Mattress Review

Disclosure:  I received a bed from Big Fig at no cost in order to review it for you on the blog.  Links in this post are affiliate links, and you can read my disclosures here.  As always, integrity is my number one priority and all opinions are my own.  

I’m not really sure why, but I’ve never been a great sleeper. I struggle to fall asleep. I toss and turn. I wake up achy. There are many days that I wake up tired even after 8+ hours in bed.  My dad still tells stories about how I used to kick, roll and flail when I slept as a child.

As I got older I’d occasionally turn to Nyquil, melatonin, or other sleep aids when things got really bad.  While they would help improve my sleep on the nights I used them, nothing really solved my problems long term.

I accepted fatigue and bad sleep as my reality, but for the past two months, I’ve gotten the best sleep of my life.  I’m excited to share my story with you because I believe that the change I made in upgrading to a Big Fig Mattress changed my life forever.

My recent post about wide and extra wide width sneakers was by far the most widely discussed post I’ve ever written.  I’ve since had countless conversations with many of you discussing the challenges we all seem to face in finding the perfect shoe.  The STRUGGLE is real, y’all!

I’ve always had a tough time finding cute and comfortable shoes due to my wide feet and occasional swelling, but I didn’t realize so many of you were struggling too.  Because of this, I have decided to write a series of posts about different types of shoes and where to find great options.

If you’re here, there’s a good chance you’re pretty interested in plus size fashion… and if you’re like me, sometimes your closet can start to overflow with your purchases.  I’ve always been a frugal shopper and find a lot of great deals on clothing.  Because of that, I’ve always had a large wardrobe that can get messy.

A Guide to The Best Weekend Ever In Waco Texas At Magnolia Market

True story… I want to be  Joanna Gaines when I grow up.

I’m OBSESSED with Chip & Joanna and all things Fixer Upper, and I’d guess many of you are too.  What’s not to love about a wholesome couple with adorable kiddos and a knack for demo day and interior design?

Recently, my husband Kevin mentioned that he had to go to Dallas, Texas for a business trip and asked if I’d like to tag along with him.  I’m never one to pass up an adventure, but I honestly had no idea what there is to do in Dallas.

Out of all my fashion struggles, I think shoes are by far the most challenging for me.  I have REALLY wide feet and sometimes deal with swelling.  I spend a lot of my time wearing stretchy flats and rarely wear sneakers unless I’m exercising.

Not sure about you, but I LOVE a good subscription service!  I’ve tried them for clothing, jewelry, makeup, groceries, and pretty much anything else I can find.

It is SO exciting to get new goodies delivered to your door – such a special treat!

Just when I thought I’d tried (and loved) every type of subscription service out there, I discovered Panty Drop, a subscription service for panties.  First, how AWESOME is “Panty Drop” as a business name for a panty subscription service? SERIOUSLY! Branding genius.  I knew I wanted in based on the name alone!

It’s been just over a month since I quit my corporate job.   While I do miss the steady paycheck and the comfort that brings,  I’m still SO excited about all of the things that are happening in my life now that I’ve made the space.  The past month has been a blur to say the least, but I am still so happy I made the leap.

My primary focuses over the past month have been building my blog (oh, hi! THANK YOU for being here) and putting together our new home.  I’ve also been so grateful for time spent with my family.

A Special Night – A Fundraiser With Draper James

If you follow me on social media (oh, hi!  Instagram, here.  Facebook, here) you likely already know that last night I partnered with the team at Draper James’ Lexington store to host a Shop & Sip event for a charity in my hometown.

I am overjoyed with the way the event turned out and wanted to capture it for you with a quick post here.

People often speak negatively about growing up in a small town, but I have to say…. you really just can’t beat the love and support of a community like the one I came from.

I’ve got an Amazon problem, y’all!  I LOVE it.  I have to say, I’ve gotten way better about my little habit, but July was definitely a little Amazon shopping heavy.

When we were in our apartment in NY, a neighbor once questioned me about what in the world we were buying to have packages arrive every day.  Oops!  I’m not proud of it, but it is what it is I guess.  There was no Target nearby so what was a girl to do?

Most of you don’t know this because I’ve never discussed it publicly, but I have suffered from intense foot pain for years.

I have flat feet and have had a variety of different aches and pains over the years.  I got tired of living in pain a few years ago and finally went to the doctor where I was diagnosed with heel spurs and plantar fasciitis.
