Waking up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee and the sound of someone softly knocking on your bedroom door can be exciting. I remember serving breakfast in bed to my Mom on Mother’s Day. The fact that my daughters have kept this tradition alive for me means the world. Each year they carefully assemble a thoughtful display of pastries on beautiful dishware and flowers.
Intimate moments like these become traditions that create unforgettable memories I will cherish for years. This year, with the help of Macy’s, Mother’s Day will be extra special. This year, I have an exclusive Mother’s Day gift guide on the Macy’s website with all of my favorite things to get and give. You will find everything from hostess gifts to jewelry, home decor, fragrances, and, my favorite – accessories! From now until April 30th, everything is an additional 30% off during the Macy’s Friends and Family Sale.
Shop my picks and make Mother’s Day this year extra special!
Thank you for browsing my Gift Guide; I am always grateful for your support. The Macy’s partnership has been truly a rewarding experience.
Being married to a Sleep Specialist means hearing a lot of advice about phone usage before bed, ideal meal times, and of course suggestions about bedding. After my recent pajama collaboration with Cozy Earth, I couldn’t help but wonder if their bedding was as soft as their pajamas.
I ordered a set of bamboo sheets from them and began researching what bamboo fabric actually is. Derived from the pulp of the bamboo plant, bamboo fabric is said to be the world’s softest and most breathable fabric (featured in Oprah’s 2018 Favorite Things) and after wearing it and sleeping on it for weeks, I have to agree (to learn about how it is made, click here).
The sheets are not measured in thread counts like traditional sheet sets but feel like an ultra-soft and silky sateen. If you like the feel of mico-fiber sheets, then these sheets are NOT for you. These are super soft, lightweight, and breathable. I am not a night sweater, but people who are, swear by bamboo fabric.
This is a non-sponsored review of Cozy Earth bedding. Afterall, after finding the best sheets in years, I had to share it with all of you! If you are interested in trying out their collection of pajamas, loungewear, or bedding be sure to use code CHICKS50 for 50% off your order.
Of course, a post about bedding would be remiss if we did not talk about pillows. Finding the perfect pillow can be a struggle, but I recently discovered a brand that will work for every single type of person out there. Luxome has a customizable pillow that you can create in your home to the height and firmness that you desire. I got one for me and of course one for the hubby and after customizing ours, they looked totally different. He prefers a flat but firm pillow (I call it a pancake-like pillow), I prefer a taller memory foam type feel. With the inserts provided by Luxome, you can truly make the perfect pillow in minutes.

I know that neither the sheets nor the pillow are cheap, however, I tend or splurge on home items like this that I use every single day. This combination for your bed is truly life-changing. So if you are looking to try something new that is vetted and on sale, check out these products and let me know what you think!
When social media first took footing it was very easy to judge, especially coming from a conservative Indian culture. I remember being a part of the beginning stages of platforms like MySpace and Friendster.
Now, in my late 30s, I respect those who had put themselves out there from the very beginning. It takes time to learn who you are and what you stand for. It also takes time to learn to let go of the judgment.
In the beginning of our blog I was nervous to put myself out there. I was nervous about the judgement, to be more specific. What were followers going to say, you’re not fashionable? You’re not pretty? You don’t have the perfect life?!
Whatever my fears were, they have been conquered.
I’ve learned that being a part of any social media platform, you are often forced to read the good, the bad, and the ugly about yourself. I’ve learned you can’t satisfy everyone. Some people will love you, and some will hate you. When you fall somewhere in a space where YOU are comfortable, it no longer matters what anyone thinks about your journey.
Whatever journey it is you choose, I hope that you find peace in knowing it’s about YOU and no one else.
Social media has given an opportunity for non-multimillion dollar backed celebrity endorsed products to be promoted on a genuine platform.
