Endy – Canadian Made Mattress 6 Month Review

Well, the verdict is in and we are in LOVE with our Endy, honestly and whole heartedly. For the past 6 months I have been receiving questions asking if what I have been sharing about our Endy experience really is as good as it sounds, and yes, yes it is!

It has been 6 months now and we have been sleeping better than ever, waking up refreshed and recharged for whatever the day had in store for us. We received our Queen size Endy mattress, Queen size sheets and pillows in the Spring this year and the change has been incredible. I used to toss and turn throughout the night, uncomfortable, overheating and completely unsupported. We had your typical box spring mattress, complete with a foam topper and a sunken in dip where Mackenzie and I each slept. This is one of the areas that we have seen a huge improvement in our sleep, each night when we go to bed, the mattress has regained it’s shape and is ready to give us a seamless night’s sleep.

Throughout the past 6 months, my sleep and body have both been shifting, not only from sleeping on the Endy but also transitioning from having Isla. Our mattress has played a big part in supporting me as I shift throughout the night and change positions to find a new way to sleep. In addition, I have had to readjust my pillows to a firmer comfort for more support in my neck and I was so glad that I didn’t have to go out and purchase new ones to do this. The Endy Pillows have been so great and storing the extra pieces has been so simple! They are small pieces of foam, you can store them anywhere in your bedroom. Easy Peasy!

I still remember the first time we opened our Endy Mattress, Ezra was ecstatic, watching it unfold and form was magic before her eyes; before all of our eyes. After the mattress was ready to go, we dressed it up with a set of Endy’s silky soft sateen weave sheets and finished up with their customizable pillows! When we were going to bed that evening I remember taking out half of the inserts that were in my pillow and Mackenzie keeping every little piece in his, talk about opposites!

The morning after our first night on the Endy, I did notice that I had felt the mattress was a little bit firm for my liking, but we were also switching  from a 10 year old pillow top princess mattress so there wasn’t much to compare it to. I was a little nervous about this but I had read reviews and also heard from other friends who have an Endy and had heard that because the mattress is so supportive, medium firmness and also just something new that you’re sleeping on, it could take a couple days for you to get used to it. Well, it did! After about 2 nights, I was hooked. Excited to go to bed each night but also excited to wake up, knowing I would be refreshed and ready for the day because I had a restful, comfortable and soundless sleep! (unless one of the girls woke up…lol)

I would definitely recommend this mattress to people, not only because of the comfort and great experience we’ve had with our Endy, but also because of the company. They have been so helpful along the way, figuring out if Endy was the right fit for our family, which mattress to go with and GUESS WHAT?! If you end up not being satisfied with your mattress, you have up to 100 days to not only return for a full refund but Endy will also com and pick up the mattress from your home! If that doesn’t give you the confidence to give the Endy a try, you’re missing out!

Icing on top: If you or someone you know is looking to catch some extra Z’s use code “STUMBLING50” for $50 off any size mattress! (code expires March 31 2020)

The Perfect Shirt From Winter to Spring and All Year Round.

Living on the West Coast you never really know what the weather is going to be like and when you do finally figure it out, it can change in a second! I am constantly looking out for clothing I can layer up when it’s chilly and shed when the day warms up. When I came across the Long Sleeve Peplum top from Pink Blush, it was love at first sight. Something that layered nicely, was comfortable, and best of all, nursing friendly!

On a regular day, I will usually throw on a pair of pants, long sleeve shirt and oversized sweater, so when I received this Peplum top from Pink Blush I was over the moon! It is a great piece that is casual enough to wear with jeans to run errands or I could instantly dress it up for a night on the town by adding a pair of heels!

This top is extremely lightweight, sits nicely on the body and has a adorable flirty twirl with the peplum bottom. Wether you are just looking for a new fun top or a nursing mother, this top is so versatile that it really covers a large range of stages, ages and body types! Wearing this top, there are a few ways you can style it up or dress it down, you can easily pair it with leather leggings and brown boots, jean shorts and a large brimmed hat, ripped jeans and a leather jacket, and even yoga pants and gum boots! (Check out the Tulip Field photos below, I told you so!)

Creeks, Lakes & Rivers, OH MY! 5 places to stop for a quick bite or mountain dip.

This summer we packed up our teeny tiny KIA Spectra and went on a two and a half week road trip through the interior and made some pre-planned stops and some impromptu stops at some amazing lakes, waterfalls and creeks. Here are my top five that we visited and hope you one day have a chance to experience these same beautiful spots!

1. Cayoosh Creek – the perfect picnic spot with an amazing view!

When we stopped off at this beautiful spot, we were travelling from Kelowna to Pemberton. We decided to drive through the Pemberton Canyon, merely for site-seeing and having a little bit of change in scenery on this long drive. While we were going down a long windy road I yelled STOP! Kenz was quite confused, but I just said turn around and away we went. We had passed this beautiful opening of the forest with the mountains and the bridge, it was perfect. (When I was going through my photos, I realized the two middle photos matched up completely – how could I not use them? lol)

2. Lilooet Lake – Light walk, Family friendly, Camping available

This was the most eery/creepy/horror movie scene lake I have ever been to! Because of the smoke it created a very different look then what I was expecting to see. Either way it was so cool and we will definitely be going back. My poor husband was so excited and kept telling me, ‘If it was cleared you’d be able to see this. this, and this.’ We made the most of it and Ezra tried out her water shoes for the very first time – she is definitely a water baby!

3. Joffre Lake – Family/Dog friendly, hiking/rock climbing, Camping available

A dream come true! and a HUGE parent bucket list checked off! I have always wanted to go to this lake and do the hike, visit all the stops and for some reason it was always in my head that it just wouldn’t happen, or that it would be a HUGE trip to do it. Alas, when we were planning our route and the stops we’d be taking, Kenz turns to me and says, “You know where we can stop?” with a big goofy grin on his face, “Joffre Lake” OH MAN. was I seeing stars I was so excited!! This big blue beautiful lake did not disappoint! Nor did Mackenzie, as we passed other hikers along the way, they almost all cheered him on for carrying Ezra and saying hello to her. Meanwhile Ezra was yelling at every single ‘DOE-DOE’ (Dog) she saw; there was a lot. She was such a champ, she was so happy the whole way up (all 3 Lakes) and then slept the whole way down, all in the hiking carrier! I am very proud to announce that we did the entire three lakes in 1.5 Hours. I couldn’t believe the sense of accomplishment and empowerment I felt as we stood a the bottom of the glacier. We did it. Having a baby does NOT mean you scale back your passions and adventure, it means you adjust your mind and plans to make it work and thrive in parenthood! We will definitely be returning.

Side note: in the first picture below, yes, that is Ez pointing to the sky because we asked her where the birds were. I love her.

4. Nairn Falls – Light walk & Family friendly

This has to be one of the coolest waterfalls I’ve been to. The size, the power, the closeness of the viewing landing, it was all so good. It’s a small hike up to the falls and I would suggest wearing closed toed and hiking shoes as there was a lot of debris that would not be good for sandals. There is also a large rock face that you have to climb up to get to the viewing spot, you can definitely walk up it – it is no rock climbing by any means, just be prepared with the proper footwear. (The last picture in the group below is what Ez looked like on every hike! She was so curious and full of wonder, holding tight to her bear and sousou, my brave little bean!)

5. Okanagan Lake – Family Friendly/Boat friendly

This lake has to be the one that we spent the most time at, it is the lake that the camp we worked at visits every year a couple times during the week. Unfortunately, the smoke was very thick so I think we only ended up going once so that we could try and keep Ez indoors. While we were there though, Ez had some fun in the water with daddy and they took out her little flamingo floatie and had some time around the corner on the shore where it was a bit more toddler-friendly.

I hope you have a chance to visit each of these refreshing spots and enjoy the views, and the work out it takes to get to some of them!
