Polysleep Mattress Review

Fun fact about my husband and I. We’ve been sleeping on a double since we got married. YES. We slept on a double through not one but TWO of my pregnancies. We thought we would sleep on a double for life but as all you married people know, the honeymoon season fades and even though you loooove your husband, you also looooooove personal space when you sleep :p

So we upgraded to a queen!! We went with Polysleep and I’m so so glad!



Polysleep is 100% Canadian made mattress. It ships directly to your door in a box! It’s a pretty fun process to take it out and see it take shape. Our kids loved playing on it. The top layer is made of antimicrobial hybrid foam so it conforms to your body to identify and help relieve pressure points. It also helps regulate your body temperature!



So funny story…James was sooo skeptical when we first received the mattress!! He loved our old set-up (even though it was a double) and was not looking forward to trying a new mattress! They do warn you that it takes about 2 weeks for your body to get used to sleeping on the mattress. James’ body adjusted quicker and he loved it and then after about 2 weeks I started to love it as well.

Polysleep has an amazing 100 day trial where if you sleep on it for 100 days and don’t love it, you can get your money back!

We’ve been sleeping on it for over a month now and we are IN LOVE. It honestly is sooo comfy yet firm enough for our bad backs. I 100% recommend this mattress! And it’s Luca and London approved too!

You guys...SPRING IS ALMOST HERE!!!! We've had a late-ish winter for us up here as our daffodils are just starting to bloom (they usually start blooming in early February!) 

With Spring just around the corner, I started to make a Spring Bucket List (which I'll share in a couple weeks) and believe it, or not, SPRING CLEANING is on that list.

Black and white bathroom

Can I first just say how much I love my husband? He built me (and I guess him and anyone else who uses our bathroom) a bathroom and it's the best thing ever. Our bathroom reno is complete and it was worth not having a shower for the last eight weeks of pregnancy and 5 days postpartum..lols

The difference in what it was and what it is now is INSANE...imagine the craziest makeover on that show What Not to Wear and times it by 100.

Incase you forgot, here is what the bathroom looked like when we viewed the house...

YIIIKEES. My biggest pet peeve was not the green counter tops or the random mirrors but the hutch above the bathtub. The shower was so dark and so much moisture got trapped on the ceiling. I couldn't wait to see that come down.

It's night and day different. I told you I have the greatest husband in the world! Oh, and if you're local to Victoria, BC and want to hire him to reno or paint your space, check out his facebook page! James planned it all out and did the work himself. We had some help with plumbing and electrical (huge thanks to Isaiah and Mike!!) and our friend Tim helped tile the tub (thanks Tim!!!)

One of my favourite features is the bathtub with the rain shower. The bathtub is extra deep and extra amazing. And that shower head was worth waiting 6 weeks for..ha!

Another cool feature is the built in closet James added in. Our hallway linen closet is extra deep, which means a ton of wasted space...so James cut in and added that unit which gives us more storage.

The sink unit is from Ikea. I looove how the drawers pull out. So much storage for makeup and hair supplies!

My other favourite feature is the heated floor! Nothing beats stepping on to warm tiles and Luca loves laying on the warm bathmat so it's a win win.
