Mattress Review: Tuft and Needle, Avocado, Saatva, Beautyrest Black, and Brentwood Home

mattress review: natural, organic, and Beautyrest black

There’s nothing worse than shopping for a new mattress. I could have really used a good mattress review, or several, when we went shopping for our last mattress, since there’s not much to rely on except your own research and the seller’s take. Not ideal. Not only are mattresses expensive, but you really don’t know what you’re getting until you start sleeping on it. And, if it doesn’t work out, it’s usually a hassle to return or exchange it. Our last mattress was standard, under $1000, purchased through a furniture store, and didn’t even make it to two years old. […]

Hardwiring Happiness Compelled Me to Write this Book Review

Book Review on Hardwiring Happiness

It’s no surprise that I research obsessively, because I’m an INFJ, and being this personality type also suggests that I’m an avid reader, which I am. It did surprise me, though, when Hardwiring Happiness showed up in my life right when I needed it. It’s not the type of book I usually go for. I bounce around from self-help and psychology to young adult fiction/fantasy and comic biographies.
