eight sleep mattress pod cover review

after hearing so many raving reviews about the eight sleep mattress, we decided to pull the trigger and try it out for ourselves. and it is worth ALL THE HYPE and more. i could do an entire blog post on this mattress but i'll try and keep this concise. it's a temperature regulated mattress that tracks all your sleep data & metrics. i have struggled with insomnia for the majority of my adult life and my sleep has never consistently been this good, since getting the 8 sleep. it allows your body temperature to stay regulated which in turn allows you to stay in rem or deep sleep! they make a mattress or just the pod cover - we just have the pod cover and it is INCREDIBLE. i no longer wake up sweating or freezing, and it regulates both sides of the mattress so michael and i have separate temps!get $50 off w/ code LAURENKAY

i also plan on doing a full blog post review on our sauna so i won't go into a ton of details here. but michael & i have been wanting a sauna in our house for years and finally decided to pull the trigger and go for it and we have ZERO REGRETS. we both use it almost every single night and have already noticed soo many health benefits. it also just feels so relaxing before bed and really taken my nighttime routine to the next level. there are SO many health benefits to using an infrared sauna regularly so i feel really grateful that we can now use this in our home whenever we want! such a great purchase and i can't recommend this one enough!

i bought this skims bra at the beginning of the year last year and it remained one of my best purchases throughout all 12 months. it's my #1 favorite bra i've ever purchased. SO comfortable, fits so well, doesn't show weird lines or gaps even underneath tight fitting clothing. i pretty much refuse to wear any other 'regular' bra now except for this one!

i bought this palette after taking a trip with my assistant lindy and her GLOWING skin was just blowing my mind haha and she swore by this palette! i've tried COUNTLESS highlighters and once i tried this one...i never went back. it really makes your skin GLOW and it's a palette that i actually use & love all 4 colors in the palette! my fave / most essential step in my makeup routine at the moment!

i've been taking this collagen supplement for almost a year now and i think it's made a huge difference in the health of my hair, skin, and nails. it's also packed with antioxidants and amino acids so it's honestly just a great supplement to add to your daily routine...for so many different health reasons!

after listening to so many different health experts talk about the importance of creatine, i finally added it into my routine and LOVE this one from cymbiotika. creatine helps with so many things from brain health to building muscle to boosting athletic performance and more!

i try out TONS of different shampoos & conditioners and honestly...my relationship with most of them ends there haha after one or two uses. but i tried out vegamour this past summer and it's been in my regular hair rotation ever since. i love how it smells, love how it makes my hair feel, and it's a shampoo & conditioner specifically designed to promote hair growth. and i've noticed a major difference in my hair growth this year!

i bought this bag in vegas with michael last february and it quickly became one of my best bag purchases of all time. i love that it looks more unique than a lot of designer bags and you don't see it everywhere. the leather is SO soft, you can change out the straps, it's the perfect practical everyday bag, and you can dress it up or down! i now have the black one on my wishlist!

if you've been following me for more than a few months...you know i LIVED in this fp onesie throughout my entire pregnancy. i loved it before pregnancy too but legit wore it at least 3x a week when i was pregnant haha. it's so comfy, but still looks cute, and you can make it look athletic too if that's the look you're going for! i think its truly flattering on any body type!

i stopped getting lash extensions when i had lyla (so, 4 months ago) and my lashes were ROUGH haha. i started using this serum and honestly cannot BELIEVE how long and healthy my lashes have gotten in the past few months! i use it every night (sometimes in the mornings too) and it's made a HUGE difference in how long and healthy my natural lashes are!

the GOAT of all lip glosses. i know i've shared this 500 times but it's because it's my go-to lip gloss. anytime we're traveling and i only bring one lip gloss with me - this is the one. the colors are so beautiful. it's cooling, plumping, hydrating, and not sticky!

i am somewhat addicted to testing out lip treatment products haha like lip balms or masks etc. and this one is truly the best one i've ever tried. i love the cooling applicator. i also love that this is truly like skincare for your lips - plumps and contours the lips with a 3D pillow-effect for natural-looking enhancement with immediate and sustained results! after a single application, you'll notice instant locked-in hydration and visible amplification of lip color, softness and smoothness!

the year i bought my first cloudmonster running shoes and they have been SO GOOD! I just ran 13.1 miles in them this past weekend. they are lightweight but still supportive and cushy and i love how they look too!

another item i shopped and shopped for until finding the perfect one! this puffer jacket from aritiza is worth ALL the hype! some puffer jackets are great quality / warmth but don't look cute or fit well. this one though checks ALL the boxes - it's super warm, incredible quality, but also fits so well and looks cute at the same time! favorite puffer jacket i've ever purchased. wore it in aspe and it was FREEZING and it was perfect for that, but i also wear it in dallas on my morning walks and it's great for that as well!

i couldn’t recap my best purchases from 2023 without mentioning the pieces i created with abraham from l&l jewelry! abraham worked with michael and me remotely about 2-3 years ago to create my dream wedding ring, on our 8 year anniversary. i was SO pleased with our experience (and my ring!) and so happy that i found abraham. he’s a jeweler in new york and so kind, honest, trustworthy, and a true expert when it comes to diamonds. if you are looking to get ANYTIHNG custom made, he is your man! this past year together we created an LKS x L&L jewelry collab with pieces i custom designed with him! we made my tennis bracelet & diamond huggie earrings, and then the eternity band pictured above and i legitimately wear each of these pieces EVERY single day and never take them off. if you are looking to get something special made this year, i cannot recommend abraham enough!

whew! like i said i could have written an entire blog post about each one of these products haha but i tried to keep it concise! thank y’all for reading! let me know if you’ve purchased any of these products & if you’re as obsessed as i am!!
