Y’all if there is one thing in this world I love it is SLEEP. But on the other hand, if there is one thing in this world I don’t get enough of it is also sleep. So today I wanted to share my tips to help you get the best sleep of your life.

To celebrate sleep awareness month, you know that month where we technically LOSE an entire hour of sleep due to Daylight Savings Time, this post is all about those zzz’s.

Two nights ago apparently I slept on my neck wrong, because I have been experiencing the WORST crick in my neck ever. It hurts so bad. So my first tip: splurge on great pillows. I know it is totally tempting to buy the $5 ones at Wal-Mart, but at least splurge on one pillow for your bed that will give you great support throughout the night.

Next: turn off the tv. Trust me, I have failed at this rule for so many years of my life. I cannot stand a quiet room, but there’s a difference between a quiet room and a room with glaring, bright lights. Don’t get me wrong, you can watch your show (my favorites: Kardashian’s, Southern Charm, the Voice) but when you start to feel sleepy, just turn it off. Also, not using the sleep timer will help you drift off into your REM cycle faster.

And lastly, my tip for great sleep would be to wash your face before bed. I know this kinda sounds obvious, but I promise it will help to relax your skin and face and make you feel so much cleaner. And hello, who wants to wake up with makeup all over your pillow? Not me.

My lovely friends over at Casper have compiled a list of their tips on getting better sleep, so be sure to check that out HERE! Casper is a fabulous company that ships mattresses to your door in a box. That’s right, A BOX. They offer a great promise:

So, I want to know, what type of sleeper are you? I think I would be considered the “Bed Hogger.” I’m so serious about my sleep that I don’t want anyone getting in my way. Don’t get me wrong, I will share anything else with you, just not my sleeping area.

Comment below on which type of sleeper you are!

Watching: The Mindy Project

I would like to thank my BFF for introducing me to this show this past weekend. Well, I don’t know if I should thank him, because now I want to watch it 24/7. Mindy is so fabulous in every way. She’s hilarious as a doctor in this TV show. She is totally my girl crush, because she is a great example of girls who aren’t a size 0 being totally happy with how they look. And can we please talk about her style on this show? It’s absolute perfection.

Visit The Mindy Project Style blog for inspiration. You’ll love it. Promise.

Cheering on: The Dallas Cowboys

If you follow me on social media, you know this by now! They are 4-1 you guys. This is big for many reasons but let’s not jinx it. I was THAT girl who went to the school book fair to buy the Troy Aikman poster and plaster it on my walls in elementary school. Have you ever been to AT&T Stadium? It’s honestly one of the most beautiful places in all the world and the atmosphere is contagious! Last December I was fortunate enough to attend a game with my dad & my nephew: here’s a picture for you!

Obsessed with: Faux Fur Throws

I’m totally trying to decide on what color! You know me…I wanted to click the buy button on the leopard version, but I’m thinking about this Chinchilla color…

Reading: who are we kidding? I honestly don’t read. Unless of course it’s reading flipping through InStyle or People StyleWatch!

Putting on my wish list: These adidas x Stella McCartney sneakers

I think these would be the perfect addition to my closet, what do you think? Anytime a designer can throw his or her spin on a pair of tennis shoes, I’m there. Leopard is my favorite neutral anyways!

In my Newsfeed: Blake Lively + Ryan Reynolds

They are expecting a little baby! Now I’m on royal baby watch x 2, because I’m obsessed with this couple. Talk about best dressed AND cutest PDA!

Thanks for reading & following <3
