As a Serta Blog Ambassador, I had a chance to visit the world’s first and only iComfort Store in Lombard, Illinois. The store features all seven styles of iComfort models on display in an upscale environment.

At the store opening, I mixed and mingled with some of Chicago’s leading bloggers and the Serta PR team, so I asked them to share tips for a good night’s sleep, which you’ll hear in the video below.


In addition to helpful tips from my peeps, I received a Serta Gel-Memory Foam 2 in 1 Scrunch Pillow to bring home. And why not? A good pillow is key to a good night’s sleep. I like that the pillow lets me sleep however I want- it supports stomach, back and side sleepers equally well. The pillow is a satisfying mix memory foam and gel-infused memory foam, so my head doesn’t overheat, but is nicely supported (along with my neck). And it’s so wonderfully scrunchy!

One lucky reader will have the chance to win one of her (or his) own Gel-Memory Foam pillow courtesy of Serta. Serta Scrunch pillow

    Serta makes some great sleep products, so buy a Serta mattress would be one of my top recommendations for getting a good night’s sleep. Another would be to remove the television from the bedroom. I sleep so much more peacefully since I moved it to the den.

    My best sleep tip is to avoid caffeine and go to bed when you’re first tired. If you wait too long, you can’t fall asleep. Or maybe it’s just me 😉

    My best tip is to get the kids OUT of your room. My kids love to come in my room all night long and I just can’t sleep.

    Thanks for the opportunity!
