What Is a Vegan Duvet?

You’re thinking it, I’m just saying it. How in the world can a duvet be “vegan”? Also what is even the point? Rest Duvet has made their newest product – the Vegan Duvet. So the question stands, what is a vegan duvet?

What makes something “vegan-friendly”?

Vegan simply means that no animal by-products are used. For food purposes, we know that means that animal meat or anything that an animal produces like milk or eggs is not allowed. How does this relate to duvets then?

For starters, a lot of duvets are made with “down”. “Down is a filling feather gathered from the undercoat of geese, ducks, and swans. Because of its lightweight nature and lofty fluff, down is a great temperature regulator for people who sleep hot.” (Casper Editorial Team, 2021). In other words, down is an animal-product and not vegan-friendly.

Why get the vegan duvet from Rest?

That being said, Rest Duvet has made their new vegan duvet for those who want to continue living a vegan lifestyle! Or if you are someone like me that just likes supporting environmentally friendly products, this would also be the product for you. If there is a simple way to bring more eco-friendly products into my home, I will.

This duvet is made from corn and has biodegradable fill instead of down. It comes in three options: Light, All-Season, and Ultra-Warm. I chose the All-Season one as it’s the best for my needs living in San Diego. The material feels like peach-fuzz, but is incredibly still moisture-wicking!

Are Glasses from Pair Eyewear Worth the Hype?

If your Tik Tok ads are anything like mine, then maybe you have seen an ad or two from Pair Eyewear. And if you haven’t heard of them, then you absolutely need to! This review of the interchangeable glasses from Pair Eyewear will definitely change up your perception of wearing glasses on the daily.

Out with the old…

One of the reasons that I won’t get a tattoo is because once it’s there, it’s there forever. I am not really a fan of that level of permanence when it comes to what I put on my body. That also includes my personal fashion and the accessories that follow.

Usually when I purchase glasses, I get the style that I can wear with almost anything. That’s not exactly fun because not every pair of glasses will work with every outfit. And I am not buying multiple pair of prescription glasses for the sake of being able to change them out for one outfit.

And in with the new interchangeable glasses from Pair!

honest review of Pair Eyewear glasses

Enter Pair Eyewear to the sponsored ads that get pushed to my feed every day. (Seriously Pair, are you spending all of your ad dollars on getting your content in front of my face?)

What drew me to their brand was the fact that they had these magnetic top frames that you could place on top of your prescription glasses. The top frames were listed at about $25 a piece for most. That’s a heck of a lot cheaper than buying all new glasses.

I also wanted to get blue light filtering glasses since I spend so much time staring at screens. Pair was the first brand that I found that did this for prescription lens!

How much does Pair Eyewear cost?

I bought the crystal clear Casper prescription frames for $60. I added on blue-light filtering for an additional $49. And because I wanted a way to jazz up my frames, I also purchased a Spider-Man top frame for $30 and a Silver Sparkle frame for $25. I was also able to use a referral code from Pair Eyewear that gave me $25 off of my first order with them! This coupon is only good as long as your order is over $85 before the coupon is applied.

In total, I spent $150 after the coupon and taxes for my Pair Eyewear order! For purchasing glasses, this is an incredible price.

Overall, I adore these glasses and the interchangeable frames. I have even purchased two more frames since my first order: giraffe spots frames and a sunglass topper! I really enjoy being able to easily go from outside to inside without having to change out my glasses. With my glasses from Pair Eyewear, I can just take my sunglasses top frame off and I’m good!

I highly recommend switching to Pair the next time you are considering getting new glasses.

Evercool from Rest Duvet coupon code

Does Evercool Really Work For Hot Sleepers?

Like Rob Thomas sang in “Smooth” by Santana, man it’s a HOT one! Now that my husband and I own our own condo, we needed an efficient way to cool ourselves at night. And turning the AC way down was not the solution. A cooling comforter was! Specifically the Evercool Cooling Comforter from Rest. But does Evercool really work?

Keep reading for an exclusive discount code for Evercool! I will receive a commission from Rest if the code is used. Using this code does not increase your purchase price.

About Evercool

We recently got the Evercool cooling comforter from Rest. Shockingly enough, it has only been available for three months. Since then, it has already been recommended by Healthline and Goodhousekeeping as one of the best cooling comforters of 2022! Based on those two recommendations alone, I was convinced it could help my husband not be a hot sleeper anymore. Honestly he radiates heat and always wants to cuddle me. I love him to pieces but my goodness I cannot stand how hot he makes our bed feel.

Just upon opening the package, we were both shocked at how cool it actually was. It felt like it had just been taken out of the fridge. It is cooler than cotton, bamboo, silk, and Tencel! Not only that, but it was super soft.

And if you think that was all it was good for, there’s more! It’s also got three times the moisture wicking power compared to regular comforters. Hand in hand with that is that it is quick-drying making caring and washing it a breeze. Needless to say, we were excited to see if it lived up to it’s hype. So.. does Evercool really work for hot sleepers?

Evercool cooling comforter from Rest Duvet

Our Trial Run

Our previous solution for hot nights was to swap out our thick comforter for a thin blanket. Although that was a better solution than keeping the thick comforter, it still didn’t help as much. We immediately put Evercool on our bed and kept all of our sleeping habits exactly the same. Same bamboo sheets, same amount of pillows on the bed, and the AC set to 76 degrees.

Hopping in to bed for the first time, it still felt like the comforter was just cold on its own. Both my husband and I slept great that night. I didn’t feel like the bed was overheating because of him being a hot sleeper. I also felt like I had uninterrupted sleep because I wasn’t waking up from being hot.

After trying it for a week, I don’t think my husband wants to go back to any other blanket. He likes to say that he’s a little “cold burrito” when he’s wrapped up in Evercool. And for me, on some nights I felt like it did TOO good of a job and I had to rely on getting another blanket to warm me back up! But I run pretty cold as it is (my husband hates it when I touch him with my cold feet and hands). As an added bonus, our husky also likes taking his naps on our comforter now too, and that’s not something he normally does.

Overall Thoughts about Evercool Cooling Comforter

I would definitely recommend using Evercool to others if you want to sleep less hot, have less night sweat, less waking up due to overheating, or just want to lower your AC bill. And if that bright blue color that Evercool is known for isn’t your bedroom aesthetic, they just released a brand new grey color! In short, yes Evercool really works.

Better yet, if you want a coupon code for Evercool or anything else on Rest.com, use the code DGB20 to get 20% off of the Evercool Cooling Comforter!
