Tempurpedic // Tempur-Flex Giveaway

September 1, 2015


I am so excited to partner with Tempur-Pedic today to review one of their amazing new TEMPUR-Flex mattresses, and give away one queen size bed to one of my readers!
I wanted to make sure that before I wrote this post, that I had a full review of the mattress, so that I can pass along accurate information to you!
The latest mattress to hit the shelves in the Tempur-Pedic line is the TEMPUR-Flex!  
It is the brand’s first mattress collection that combines adaptive support and pressure relief with a slightly spring feel thanks to an all-new TEMPUR material and innovative Dynamic Support layer.
It also includes a new moisture-wicking, cool-to-the-touch SmartClimate System. Which has been great for my husband who tends to be a warm guy at night!
The TEMPUR-Flex is available nationwide at authorized Tempur-Pedic retailers, and through www.TempurPedic.com as well as the brand’s flagship stores.  
We received our new TEMPUR-Flex mattress back in June.  We had just gotten home from a two week vacation, and the thought of sleeping in our own bed was heaven!
My husband and I were so excited to try it out.  Even before it was set up we both fell back first onto the mattress, and let out an, ohhh, ahhhh!!! Nice!
My husband and I have been married for 12 years now this August, and we never invested in a high quality mattress.  I am not sure why, because it really is life changing.  I mean, why didn’t I get one of these beds when I was pregnant three times?!  That would have made such a huge difference!  Word to the wise, don’t wait!  You won’t regret it!
I have LOVED the TEMPUR-Flex because it is firm, but also pillowy at the same time.  You sink into it in all the right places, but you aren’t swallowed up by the mattress either.  
I had been having this lower spinal pain the last few years, and I have a spot on my spine that always felt tender.  The last few months, this bed has definitely helped with that pain, and it feels nice to not only sleep in the bed with no more tossing and turning, but also it gives nice support to sit in bed and watch TV or check my phone updates, which I’m guilty of doing way too often.  My bed is my happy place, and much more so with my new TEMPUR-Flex!   It has been nice as a side sleeper to not have too much pressure on my joints when I sleep, and I can get a better quality sound sleep!
It’s safe to say that both my husband, and I are LOVING our new mattress, and we are for SURE getting a better nights sleep!
Now, I am so excited to give away one Tempur-Flex Queen size Mattress to one of my amazing readers!!  (Queen size mattress range from $1999-$3199!)

product review: snugg ipad case …

March 22, 2013


I was contacted by Snugg to review one of their Snugg Ipad 2 Leather Case Cover and Flip Stand.

It was prefect timing because I was in need of a new Ipad case after a cheap one I had fell apart.
I liked the sleekness of the case, and the high quality of the leather.  It seems like it will last a long time!

I also enjoyed using the case for a stand as well!  My last case didn’t have that feature, and it has been really nice to have, especially when I am catching up on my shows!

Side view of the stand.

Another feature I really like about the case is the magnetic closure, when you shut the case the top stays put and protects my screen.

{*Disclosure: I was given an Snugg Ipad case to review on my blog, all thoughts and opinions are my own.  If you have a product that you think would fit on the Armelle Blog, email me at carolinearmelle@gmail.com  All photos by me}

product review + giveaway: albion fit …

February 26, 2013


I was contacted by albion fit to do a review and giveaway of one of their products on the blog.  I was excited when they asked me to do this because I was actually in the market for some new workout clothes, mainly workout bottoms, so I was excited to try out the optimum capri’s.

I’ve been able to wear these during my workouts, and even around the house a bit, and my first impression was that I was very impressed with the overall quality.  You can tell just by the feel of the fabric that it is really good quality.  I love the compression fabric that keeps everything where it should be while you’re working out, and the extra wide waistband is nice and comfortable!

Albion also has a great selection not only of women’s fitness wear, but also women’s swim wear that you can check out on their site!  I was also excited to see that they are a local company, and will be opening a store in March at City Creek in downtown SLC!

I am excited that albion fit wants to offer one of my lucky readers a pair of these amazing exercise capris!

For a chance to win, all you have to do is visit the Albion facebook page, and like their page, then visit their shop, and leave a comment here to tell me that you liked their Facebook page, and what is your favorite item from their site!

You have until Sunday, March 3, 2013 at midnight to enter.  The winner will be chosen on March 4th!

You also can take $15 off any Albionfit.com purchase of $50 or more with the code armelle15 at checkout.  (Expires 3/3/2013)

Good Luck!
