Revamp Your Mattress With Silentnight

If, like me, you're a student then you'll know that very little thought or care is put into what we're sleeping on. This year (my third and final year of uni) I'm renting a student flat with a few friends. Besides the other problems that have come with renting a property as a student (trust me, us students really don't get taken care of well), one massive problem that I've had is my bed, and the quality of my mattress. Now, I understand that mattresses and beds cannot be replaced every year for new students, but you'd at least expect a decent mattress and a bit of comfort, right? Not the case. After a couple of weeks of back ache, SleepyPeople came right to my rescue and sent me a Supreme Mattress Topper to try out. Now I can't leave my bed... 

The Silentnight Supreme Mattress Topper comes fitted with a breathable cover that helps to regulate your body temperature, and is available in single, double and king sizes. It's super easy to fit to your mattress - just like a super thick sheet, the topper has elasticated ends that help it to stay in place and stay fitted to your mattress. Putting it on was easy and quick - it literally took about a minute and my mattress felt completely rejuvenated, almost like a new one! After just the first nights sleep with my new mattress topper on, I could definitely feel the difference - there were no more springs jabbing into my back and I felt like I was actually sleeping on a good quality, comfy mattress. It's also quick and easy to pop in the washing machine for a quick wash and is non-allergenic for those who struggle to sleep on some mattresses.
If you're having trouble sleeping on an old or uncomfortable mattress I would definitely recommend purchasing the Silentnight Supreme Mattress Topper. It's completely transformed my mattress and ensured I've been getting enough sleep to make those early 9am lectures. Retailing at £24.99, forget pillows and blankets - investing in a mattress topper may be your best sleepy decision yet!

Take a Journey with Jurni

If you're familiar with the ever-popular children's suitcase the Trunki, then you'll be excited to know that there's a new suitcase on the block... that caters to the slightly older generation. The Jurni, a carry-on and ride-on suitcase, is the latest case accompanying teens everywhere. Described as 'the best carry-on suitcase idea we've ever seen' by the Huffington Post, the Jurni is specifically designed to make travelling easier and lighter. And I've got one to give away to a lucky reader! 

The Jurni is small enough to take on an aeroplane as hand luggage, putting it right at the top of my list for convenience. I always struggle with hand luggage - I usually take a big bag but after an hour or so queuing I'm usually left with sore arms and shoulders. With the Jurni, however, you can sit comfortably on your case with your own portable seat and easily glide through queues, with the inline skate wheels making it a smooth and easy ride. Airports are notorious for their lack of seating and long queues, but having a Jurni eliminates both of those problems - simply sit on your case and let it take you to your destination!

If Disney Characters Went To Hogwarts...

I thought it was the best thing EVER when Isaiah Stephens did his 'Disney Meets Sex and the City' illustrations (read my post about it here!), but it actually turns out he's produced something even bigger and better. Have you ever wondered what Disney characters would look like if they attended Hogwarts? Who would be the best at magic, and who would be the worst? Which houses would they be sorted into? Here, Isaiah Stephens answers some of those questions in the form of beautiful and magical illustrations showing exactly how it would go down if Disney characters went to Hogwarts...
