HONEST Rest Duvet Reviews

One of the hottest trending brands in the bedding game is Rest Duvet. They are a brand new business and making big advancements already. You may know them for their extremely popular cooling comforter, the Evercool. Since they are a brand new business, it could be difficult to find Rest Duvet reviews. Lucky enough, I have some of the most important reviews for Rest, including an Evercool review!

Rest Duvet Evercool Review

Evercool Cooling Comforter Review

★★★★★

If I’m being honest, this actually deserves 10 stars. My husband is an incredibly hot furnace to sleep next to. Worse than that is that he loves to cuddle. The only Evercool review that you will ever need is what I’m about to say next. Having the King sized Evercool made it so I wasn’t sleeping next to someone’s lava skin. AND it allowed us to keep our condo at 76 degrees at night. If you’re shocked at how “hot” that seems, just remember.. that means this cooling comforter works THAT well. See it on their website here.

Rest Duvet reviews of their vegan duvet

Vegan Duvet Review

★★★★☆

I love that this duvet is eco-friendly! Made of corn? Love that. I got the All-Season option as that was the best for my needs living in San Diego. For our winter chills, this was perfect in helping us to keep the heater on a lower setting. It feels soft, yet it also feels a little “dry”. Because of that, it does have a little crinkling sound to it. I also think that’s why since I took it out of the packaging that it is still wrinkled. I’d love to stick it in the dryer to de-wrinkle it, but it’s too big for our tiny little condo dryer. See it on their website here.

Rest Duvet reviews of their performance sheet set

Performance Sheet Set Review

★★★☆☆

This SHOULD be a five. And for a lot of reasons it is. For example, I love that they were cooling sheets. This could be great if like sleeping with just a sheet, or you just want silky soft sheets during winter. Not to mention, I accidentally ordered a King size sheet set and not a California King. Although Rest’s return policy is easy, I still wanted to see if I could make them work. And thankfully they are kind of stretchy so they ended up fitting! But one BIG thing that was a constant thorn in my side with this sheet set was how slippery it was. Trying to make the bed with sheets that slipped and slid across one another made it pretty hard to do. Even with a duvet on top of it, my husband and I would always find the sheet to slip or to cause the duvet to start sliding off in the middle of the night. So it SHOULD be five, and I would still recommend it. It’s just a tad infuriating. See it on their website here.

Hopefully these Rest Duvet reviews can help you make an educated decision. I personally am I big fan of their products because they are effective. Not to mention the Evercool and the performance sheet set are just THAT cool to the touch.

Should I Say When A Post Isn’t Sponsored?

If you are posting as a creator on social media, then you probably talk about brands and their products. You have your normal, fun un-sponsored posts, and your paid sponsorship posts. However, if it’s an unpaid post that is still product-focused, you may be wondering: “Do I need to disclose that it is not sponsored?”

You do have to disclose when something is a sponsored post. However, you definitely should not say when a post is not sponsored, and here is why.

What does it mean to disclose that a post is not sponsored?

Imagine that you are talking about how much you love Brand X in a post. But you don’t want your audience or the algorithm to think it’s an ad. So you think to yourself “I will just say that it isn’t an ad!”. An example of that could be: “Wow I just love this dress! It’s flowy, beautiful, I feel amazing in it! And don’t worry, this post is not sponsored.”

By saying your glowing words about this brand or product, followed by that it’s “not an ad” or that “this isn’t a sponsorship”, you’ve almost set yourself up for mistrust. This gives the idea that by saying nice things, it means that someone paid you to say that. Almost like by saying something nice now with no strings attached somehow makes this product recommendation even BETTER. It comes off like those previous things you said in the past for sponsored posts were not actually your honest opinion. Because now moving forward for a sponsored post, it’s going to sound like you are only saying that because you were paid to do so.

Your words should be the truth. Whether you were paid or not to talk about a brand. You need to build trust with your audience and talk about the things that you love. Even if no one paid you. And if you are gearing up for a paid collaboration, make sure it’s with a brand you actually do love!

An Outdated Mindset

Why is there a mindset that we can only talk about brands if we are paid? Maybe we think it will take us out of the running for getting paid if we already gave them content to our audience for free.

Break free of this mindset and talk about brands willingly, openly, and regularly! This will not only build trust with your audience, but also when they do see a sponsorship from you, it won’t look like you are just shouting “AD” into their face. The best sponsorships are the ones that are organic to your feed. If you consistently talk about products on your page, then seeing a sponsorship won’t seem any different to your audience.

Be open with your audience when you have a paid partnership that you need to disclose. But also be honest in your everyday life about the brands and products that you just love on the regular! Your audience will love hearing your thoughts and will trust you more for it.

Royal Caribbean Tier Matches with MGM Rewards

Traveling on a budget is an easy feat when you know how to maximize your savings. If you have followed this blog, then you know that I am kind of the myVEGAS expert. Need to save money on your stay in Las Vegas? I got you. Now I have the biggest game changer to the budget travel game – Royal Caribbean tier matches to MGM Rewards!

How Tier Matching Works

When it comes to tier matching, usually businesses work within the same industry. For example, if you love MGM Resorts and gamble there often, you can have your MGM Rewards tier get matched to a similar tier for Caesar’s properties. Or if you frequently cruise with Royal Caribbean, you can get a tier match of equivalent value with Celebrity Cruises.

But if you have looked over the rewards on the myVEGAS apps, you might have seen Royal Caribbean pop up. It’s hard to believe, but it is true! MGM Rewards will match your Royal Caribbean tier with a corresponding MGM tier. Below is a breakdown of what you can expect from your Crown & Anchor status being matched to a corresponding MGM tier.

This is the tier match you can expect to receive with MGM Rewards. Picture from Royal Caribbean’s Partnership Benefits.

How to get your MGM Rewards tier match from Royal Caribbean

  1. First have your MGM Rewards and Crown & Anchor Society account numbers handy.
  2. Next you are going to call MGM Resort Services at (866)761-7111.
  3. Let them know that you want to tier match your Royal Caribbean account to your MGM Rewards account.
  4. They will need to verify with Royal Caribbean that the information is correct so they do place you on a brief hold as they verify it.
  5. And that’s it! You should see the tier match on your account almost immediately!

By getting your Royal Caribbean tier match to MGM Rewards, you can now take advantage of MGM member benefits like exclusive room rates and other discounts. Learn more about MGM’s tier matching on their website.

This is, however, a one-way tier match. You will not be able to use your MGM status to get a corresponding tier match with Royal Caribbean. For example, even if you are already a MGM Gold member, you will not be able to become a Crown & Anchor Emerald member. The only way to get a higher Crown & Anchor tier status is to simply cruise more!

How to Reach Out to Brands

Every creator gets to the point in their social career that they want to start monetizing by working with brands. If that sounds like you then congratulations on getting to this part! I definitely understand that this is both an exciting but very confusing time. So how do you start? How do you reach out to brands?

How do I start the conversation with my favorite brand?

You will need to do some groundwork before you send that first message. If your intention is to work with brands that you believe in, then you will need to prove that. For starters, you should be following them. That support is the least you could do.

I usually will spend at least a week to a month being an active follower. That means interacting with their stories, commenting on their posts, etc. But maybe you are a mega fan and have been following them already for a while. In which case, you are ahead of the game! Brands love it when creators are real fans of theirs. Not to mention, you should really be mega fans of brands you are reaching out to regardless.

Where do I find a brand’s contact information?

The best way to find the information needed to get in contact with a brand’s marketing department is to simply ask. Instagram DMs were meant for this! I normally send a short message introducing myself, expressing my interest to work with them, and then asking if there is an email that I can send my inquiry to. More often than not, they will either give you the email address, respond by saying that discussing via DM is fine, or may even give you a link to their application form.

If you don’t receive a response via DM, it’s time to look on their website. Since the influencer game is growing quickly, many brands have now placed sections on their website just for creators with pertinent information. I usually look on the Contact Us or the FAQs page as they normally have a contact specifically for these sorts of inquiries.

What do I include in my message to them?

Now that you have the correct contact information or the person via DM is willing to chat through Instagram, what do you include? First, you should include 1-2 sentences about you and your content. Next include any relevant information about your experience with the brand. If you have purchased from them before, let them know! Next you should mention any information that would be of interest to the brand (ie. your engagement rate, your audience demographics that relate to the brand, etc). Lastly, the email should end on your excitement at the prospect of working with the brand and a thanks to them for taking the time to read your email.

You should stay clear of sending your email with attachments or links in it. The brand doesn’t need your life long content history. However, the other big reason to not include attachments or links in your first email to the brand is because this could lead to your email going straight to spam. Don’t cut yourself off like that!

Trending Anaheim Thrift Store: Thriftyland 101

Are you a Disney adult? Do you also like thrifting? Good thing you said yes for both because the hot, trending Anaheim thrift store, Thriftyland 101, is the perfect place for you!

Where is Thriftyland?

It is located at 842 N Euclid St, Anaheim, CA 92801. That’s just ten short minutes away from Disneyland!

The parking situation is a little confusing, at least it was for me. But I parked in the neighborhood that was adjoined to the same block and walked the short distance inside.

What does this Anaheim thrift store offer?

Being so close to Disneyland, I’m sure you can imagine what it’s specialty is. You guessed it – Disney merchandise. Some of them are directly from the Disney Parks and still have the tags on them! Jackets, hoodies, sweatshirts, and tees for everyone. They also offer a number of different Disney toys and plushies.

This isn’t the entire store though. Only about half of the store’s products are Disney brand. Not only did I buy myself a Disney shirt, but I got a plain, black v neck long sleeve. What can I say? I needed to update my wardrobe with some non-Disney picks.

Thrifting is a great way to live a sustainable life. Giving these clothes new life keeps the cycle going. It also keeps these clothes out of landfills. It’s amazing that Thriftyland is offering places for Disney fans to come together to get merchandise on a budget.

What are the prices like?

Prices are very fair! Normally when shopping Disney items at thrift stores, they tend to not even really be marked off. I was happy to see that these prices were very affordable. Even the ones that still had tags on them were priced reasonably.

I wonder how many awesome Anaheim thrift stores like Thriftyland are out there?
