The love I have for my comforter runs deep. For years now I have stuck to the same combination when it comes to a top cover: Amerisleep’s Recovery+ comforter wrapped in Urban Outfitter’s T-Shirt Jersey duvet cover. With this combo, I’m left feeling like I’m sleeping in a cloud, wrapped in the softest, plushiest cover you could ever imagine. It’s truly heaven. So much so, that I don’t switch to a lighter bedspread during the warmer months of the year (I’m admittedly someone who likes to sleep with the A/C around 68 degrees, sorry not sorry). However, this year in an effort to broaden my bedding (and save a little on my electric bill) I decided to delve into lightweight, summer-friendly bedding. While digging I came across a pick so stylish I couldn’t pass up — and it quickly became a set I don’t think I can ever live without. I’m talking about Casper’s Matelasse Coverlet + Sham Set, and soon you will, too.

One look at this coverlet set and it’s easy to see why it was love at first sight. Made from a stunning Matelasse fabric woven to resemble a textured, quilted pattern, this airy, thin blanket and sham duo is as chic as they come. However, good looks are not all this set has to offer. With a 100 percent cotton construction, it’s also breathable and soft to the touch, a must-during the warmer seasons. Best of all, it comes in three piece options, two sizes, and features a fun color scheme with three colorways available (spice, olive, and cream), each with a cream underside.

Now, as I stated above I am not one for lightweight bedding, however, given how chic this set is (and the fact that I’m already a fan of Casper’s sleep products), this one seemed like a great place to start. After I packed away my comforter, I unpacked this set and gawked at just how lovely it was. First of all, the color is spot on; with a mauve-pink hue, spice is the perfect name. Second, it’s incredibly soft, and not in that “it’s-so-cuddly-I’m-going-to-overheat” way. As I held it against my skin, I knew it was going to be a winner. When it was finally time to head to bed, I pulled the coverlet back, slid underneath, and found that the underside of the blanket is even softer than the outside — a big win. I turned on my fan (and tuned off my A/C), draped the blanket over me, and quickly fell asleep. When I woke up, I was cool, comfortable, and confused — had I really just become a lightweight bedding convert overnight? Seems so.

A sleek, stylish, and cozy pick, this coverlet set comes in three colors and retails at $288 for a Full/Queen size set. Right now you can save 30 percent off during Casper’s 4th of July sale, making it the perfect time to give this set a try. So if you’re like me and not sure whether or not a lighweight set is right for you, give this one a go — you may just find yourself converting, too.

I Tested the Internet’s Favorite Cooling Mattress and It Totally Lives Up to the Hype (Bonus: It’s on Sale!)

If there’s one thing I’m passionate about, it’s cooling bedding. As someone who’s been a hot sleeper since childhood, I know that if the bed I’m in gets too hot, I won’t be getting a good night’s sleep — and this is something that always plagues me when I visit my parents. While they have a lovely guest room, there’s a slight problem with it: it’s the hottest room in the house. Facing the front of their Florida home, the guest room sits on the side of the house that gets the most sun, thus making it a hot zone. Top that off with the fact that (much to my dismay) they don’t like to crank up the A/C, and it can get pretty toasty in there. With a month long trip on the horizon, I went digging for a solution that could help make my stay (and anyone’s stay) a bit more comfortable. The answer? A cooling mattress. But not just any cooling mattress: the Brooklyn Aurora Hybrid Mattress.

While researching cooling mattresses, my hunt led me to tons of blogs, articles, and reviews. Gradually, I began to notice one mattress continually appearing at the top: the Aurora. After looking at its breakdown, it’s easy to see why. This mattress features a six-layer design, thoughtfully engineered to keep you cool and supported from top to bottom. When it comes to its cooling prowess, the stars of the show are the GlacioTex-infused surface and the CopperFlex™ TitanCool™ top layer. The GlacioTex surface uses cooling gel beads to regulate body temperature, maintaining a cool and comfortable 88 degrees, while the CopperFlex layer effortlessly dissipates excess body heat and wicks away moisture thanks to the addition of CopperGel™ to the layers cell structure. So I was excited to put was seems to be the internet’s favorite cooling mattress to the test.

To say this mattress has been a game-changer would be an understatement. For a little context, with the guest room’s previous mattress, sleeping was a bit of a nightmare: Without fail, I would wake up every morning stiff, sore, and drenched in sweat. But with the Aurora, that’s not the case — in fact, I noticed a change on the first night. To really compare the two, I slept on the old mattress one more (thankfully final) night and had a typically tortuous night. But the next night on the Aurora? I slept soundly, comfortably, and finally woke up without a bead of sweat on my forehead. I was floored.

As for who’d I recommend this mattress to, there are a few types of sleepers. Aside from the obvious — hot sleepers — if you’re a combination sleeper, I think you’d love this mattress. The various support layers found beneath the cooling layers do a great job of contouring the body and providing excellent pressure point relief for my shoulders and hips, something I find incredibly important since I’m constantly shifting my positions. It is important to note that the mattress is available in three firmness levels designed to accommodate all sleep styles, so if you’re a dedicated side, back, or stomach sleeper there’s an option there for you (I opted for the Medium which I would call more of a Medium-Soft). I’d also say this a great pick for couples as I noticed the motion transfer is pretty minimal.

Available in nine different sizes, the Brooklyn Aurora Hybrid Mattress is undoubtedly a luxury buy, but a solid investment if you’re looking to improve the overall quality of your sleep. And right now you can save 25 percent off during Brooklyn Bedding’s 4th of July Sale. Combine this with free shipping, a 120-night trial period, and Brooklyn Bedding’s 10-year warranty, and it’s a deal that can’t be beaten. So if you’re ready to say goodbye to sweaty summer nights and finally sleep cool, give this mattress a try — for once, the internet got it right.
