Sleep LIke A Pro: The makers of SHEEX, a new line of performance sheets for unrivaled sleep, sent some samples of their new pillowcases for me to try. SHEEX bedding is made with performance fabrics that are similar to athletic wear, enabling better temperature control, moisture transport, breathability and superior feel. While I didn’t have any hot flashes the week I slept on my SHEEX, I found the cases to be very soft. I also let my boyfriend L try a pillowcase too…I’m such a nice girlfriend!

And now I want to share SHEEX with my blog readers. To enter the raffle to win a set of SHEEX click here. The winner will be randomly selected in December. Deadline to enter is two weeks from this post, so hurry and sign up. Tell your family and friends too – the more the merrier.
