It’s solved the modern day problem of having guests come for an overnight stay by making it a totally hassle-free experience and, let’s be honest, that’s what we’ve been crying out for (more so than a 3-in-1 avocado peeler).   Simply fold it up, store it in the back of your wardrobe until the day you’re expecting company,

Did You Know You Can Bend Yourself To Sleep?

    If there’s one thing we’ve come to realise, it’s nothing kick-starts a blog better than an unhealthy dollop of alarming news, and that’s exactly what we’re about to do…   BREAKING NEWS: Sleep deprivation has become an epidemic on this great isle of ours.   The reason we’re telling you this in such a blunt-force trauma type way isn’t because we like being all click-baity and whatnot. It’s because we think everyone needs to understand just how bad the situation has got. Not only is 37% of the population not getting enough shuteye, us Brits are now the

6 Little Tips To Get Your Little Ones To Sleep

Snoozing children   As an adult, there is nothing more satisfying than an extra nine minutes in bed, which is why we press the snooze button an average of 32 times every morning before finally dragging ourselves up and out and into the dreaded “real world”.   Kids, however, see this whole sleep thing slightly differently, in that they fight it with every fibre of their body. You get: Toddler’s begging for “just one more story” even though you’ve just read the Julia Donaldson equivalent of the Bible. Small-schoolers struggling to settle because they’re scared of having bad dreams again.

Mattress Depth: Deep Pan Or Thin Crust

Mmmmmm   If you thought choosing a main course from your favourite restaurant was hard, then you’ve clearly never been mattress shopping. Oh my giddy-aunt (whatever that means?!).

What matters is that you’ve been into every shop and tried everything on every shelf that claims it will

Bedtime Snacks To Help You Beat Insomnia

Dinner in bed   There are so many ways you can be a terrible sleeper. It sucks. You could be someone that struggles to get to sleep, a tosser-and-turner, one of those that always wakes up before dawn’s crack or even a pseudo-sleeper that only manages to catch zzzzz’s in super-short bursts.

Want To Sleep In The Same Bed As The Queen?

Sleep in opulence   Considering sleep is the one hobby we all have in common, there are a surprising amount of us who suck at it. We’re talking millions and millions of people yawning as they watch another episode of GBBO on repeat, climbing up the stairs on exhausted legs, slipping into the t-shirt pyjamas they got at last year’s team-building exercise, climbing under the covers and then – bam! – not falling asleep. Instead, yup, it’s another long night of tossing and turning and getting frustrating and all that stuff.   And, you know what, it’s all your mattress’

13 Crazy Facts You Never Knew About Sleep

Oh, to be able to sleep anywhere   There’s nothing better on earth (or any of the planets, for that matter) than a good night’s sleep, especially those ones where you traipse to your bedroom on heavy legs, with heavy eyes, and fall onto your bed, landing in the weirdest way possible, but you don’t care because your bed and pillow have never felt more marshmallowy and your duvet has never felt so soft and cosy. Ah, sleep like that is the best.   But apart from the fact sleep is awesome and stops you from being grumpy for the

Pillow Talk: Top Tips For Buying A New Bed

Image source   Here’s a little fact for you: most people don’t replace their beds for fifteen years. That’s the average. It’s like they miss-read the bumper sticker on a car way back in 2003 and started believing that a bed is for life, not just for Christmas. Unfortunately, though, this isn’t the case. In fact, most beds can deteriorate as much as 70% from their straight-out-of-the-plastic-wrap state in just a decade. This isn’t because they’re cheap either. It’s because we spend a third of lives in them; tossing and turning in them and letting our kids jump all over
