I’m going to start this post with an embarrassing confession. Until recently, I slept on a 15 year old mattress. Yup, that’s right, fifteen. It was basically an antique, and not in a good way. Not to sound like a complete grandma, but obviously back was killing me. I would look forward to traveling so I could sleep on comfy hotel beds and my bedroom back home while visiting my parents. Obviously this was no way to live. This year, one of my resolutions was to make my apartment a home. While I’m in the middle of redecorating my living room (reveal to come), I knew I had to do something about my mattress situation. So I partnered with Casper for a new mattress.

Sleep is a thing we take for granted, so I never really gave it much thought. However, after getting my new mattress, sleep became a luxury. I started looking forward to climbing into my bed at night, and sometimes even using it as my office. Casper has completely changed my outlook on sleep and comfort. I may or may not be the lunatic who asks friends to go lie down on her mattress when they visit. The memory foam totally moulds to my body without making me feel like I’m stuck to my mattress. It’s just completely changed my life.

After my experience with Casper, I’ve started to think of my bedroom as a sanctuary. I’ve discovered a newfound appreciation for a good night’s sleep. It has quite literally transformed my life. Nowadays, I’m full of energy and back ache free when I start the day. So if you are not yet the owner of a great mattress, I recommend you pay Casper a visit.

    Wow good for you for sticking it out with that old mattress for so long! A nice mattress makes a world of a difference. When I moved into my boyfriend’s place we got rid of my comfy mattress and kept his. We have regretted it ever since so we are definitely due for a new one too!

    Gurl, I’m in need of a new set! If I was to get one now, this would definitely be worth looking into.

    Such lovely and cozy pictures! I too have been suffering from back ache lately and now thinking about it, my mattress is nearly 10 years old. I need to get a new one now!

    I’ve had my mattress forever and totally need a new one. I haven’t heard of Casper before but will be checking it out!!

    I need to find a good bed soon too. It’s impressive how a good night of sleep completely changes our mood, so it’s truly important to have a good bed.
    Have a great day dear.

    My hubby and I were looking into Casper’s matresses. We need to update our bed and we’re thinking of trying Capser!

    Yes to sleeping on a good mattress. I think a lot of us don’t change out our mattress when we should. We don’t connect out sleeping pattern with our mattress. Good review!

    A new mattress is definitely making its way onto my “thing I need” list. My current one is 10+ years old and needs to be retired. Love your tattoo, BTW! It’s so pretty!

    I did the same thing! And I slept with back pain for over a year before I did something about my mattress. Just wish I’d done it sooner. Makes all the difference.

    Uh, we just visited my parents house for a week and that old mattress, which was a hand me down from them when they got a new one years ago was just horrible! I barely slept that whole week. Last year we bought a mattress that is just so perfect for me, I love it so much. I’m glad we saved up for a really good one, though it was not cheap! But I totally notice the difference going back to an old one. I hope you get a lot better sleep!

    Happy you got the mattress you deserve my darling! We spend a good part of our life in bed and investing in a good bed or sleepwear is essential. Don’t worry I started thinking this way only recently:)
    Have a lovely Thursday!

    I have been thinking about changing my mattress lately too!

    You’ve just made me realise that my mattress is practically antique too! No wonder I don’t sleep so well! I’m going to have to look into getting a new one and will definitely check if they stock Casper here!
