Monday Musings- Pillow Talk and Cabernet

Happy Monday, ladies. Back in May, I started looking for the “perfect” pillow to sleep in without creating permanent wrinkles on my face.

It was hard to fix my exclusive sideways sleeping habit, but I finally succeeded. One trick is to put a small pillow behind your knees. Another has a large pillow under his head.

It has so many great properties that I was very excited to get it. Facing upwards, the pressure on your cheeks is relieved.

After days of researching and looking down the Google rabbit hole, I found This envy pillow. Developed by two nurses with decades of experience. Spine health was their number one priority, with wrinkle prevention from sleep coming in a close second for him. I was excited when I found the homepage, but it was sold out. I called the toll-free number on a whim and Kathy, one of the nurses, answered! We had a long chat.

From their website – “The patented gullwing shape and dimples at the bottom add a sense of security and subtle traction to the C-Spine, promoting neck stability and preventing unwanted head rotation. This is especially important for those recovering from neck injuries, neck pain, back pain and muscle strain.”
I had no idea how it would work until I went to sleep. If you try to sleep on your side, your head will automatically fall back. You can’t even lay your face sideways on this pillow!! It doesn’t feel like you’re twisting your neck. It feels completely natural.

Here are the details:

  • Made with 100% certified natural latex, 100% undyed cotton, pure natural copper, eco-friendly TENCEL™️ Lyocell fibers, and pure OEKO-TEX®️ certified silk.
  • Encourage them to slowly lie on their backs. This is the best way to sleep for your face and neck.
  • It is the only pillow infused with copper. Copper is naturally antimicrobial, killing 99.9% of bacteria, fungi and viruses in 24 hours.
  • It is highly effective as a TMJ relief medication by reducing pain caused by unnecessary pressure on joints during sleep.
  • The enVy pillow also reduces pressure on the lower shoulders and is recommended by chiropractors for patients with shoulder pain, frozen shoulder, chronic pain, numbness/pins and needles and many side sleepers. My arm was always numb from the pillow.
This is like the Royals Royce of beauty pillows. It also comes with a travel bag, making it convenient to carry.

These are sold at envy website, Medi Spas, Chiropractor’s Offices, Wellness Centers and Doctor’s Offices. There are several different types, but this one has it all. I am so obsessed with this pillow that I was thrilled when they offered to let me become an affiliate.

I wholeheartedly recommend this Envy pillow if you want to stop banging your face against it.

I went to the mall for the first time in weeks and discovered an abundance of wines, plums and cool tones for fall. As soon as I got home, I dug up this old woven bag that hadn’t been used in years. In the meantime, I pulled out a burgundy lipstick and found it was too strong, so I’m looking for a softer, deeper lipstick for fall. What’s your favorite?

This bag has become one of those unique treasures that makes me happy every time I carry it. I’m glad I didn’t use it and didn’t donate it.
