-CLOSED!!! -Sleep Well, Live Well – The Obasan Way and a GIVEAWAY!

May 3, 2012

And the Giveaway Winners are…….!!!!

For the Infant pillows:

ANd the big winner A.K.A the Awesome wool comforter Winner is….!!!!

Congratulations everyone!!!!! Please email me your shipping address as well as the name that you would like embroidered on the pillow :)

I know what you’re thinking; this has nothing to do with food so why am I writing about Sleep? Well as a foodie, I love and enjoy eating good food but I also love all the good things in life and I believe that having a good night of sleep, every night makes a world of difference in terms of my productivity level, my mood and therefore my lifestyle as a whole. I am sure that you agree with me on that one.

Fact: We spend a THIRD of our life sleeping.

That is a huge part of everyone’s life but as crazy as it sounds, most of us are living with sleep deprivation.

Each person has specific sleeping needs, per example, we, women usually have wider hips than men and men usually have broader shoulders than we do. These differences have to be taken into consideration when choosing a sleep solution.

Obasan offers customizable sleep solutions to make sure each of us are comfortable and can sleep well. Here is a picture that shows the different zones that are customizable within the mattress. (This is the mattress we (Karl and I) have)

As you can see, the shoulder zone, the hip zone and knee zone can be firmer or softer, on your side and on your partner’s side. That way, you do not have to compromise! Each person gets what they want!

The comfort is amazing but the fact that the materials used are all organic is just the cherry on top!

Obasan uses organic cotton, organic wool and pure natural rubber in it’s mattresses and accessories.

This is what our mattress actually looks like from the outside:

Fact: Most Mattresses are made with synthetic materials and are sprayed with many harmful chemicals. These chemicals “off gas” for a period of about 10 years. We breathe these chemicals!!!

Just like when you look for organic alternatives in a grocery store, organic alternatives in the mattress world help you lower your chemical intake, which makes for a better and healthier lifestyle.

All to say that I love, love, love my mattress as well as my accessories (fantastic pillows, mattress protectors, sheets and comforters!)

And since I love it so much, I asked Obasan if they would be kind enough to give away some of my favorite accessories and they said yes!!!

Here is what you can win!!!

1- Queen size Wool Comforter (Model: Banff 2.0) Organic wool covered with a soft and silky organic cotton fabric. (Price: 549$) You can find more information on this Wool Comforter on the following link: http://obasan.ca/products/banff-2-0/

Obasan was also kind enough to giveaway 5 of my favorite Baby Shower Gift, the infant shredded rubber pillow with the name of your child embroidered on it! (Best baby shower gift ever!!) (Price: 49$ each)

Yes, they do have an INFANT product line as well!! (http://obasan.ca/obasan-products/infant/)

Jean, the owner, wrote a book about Sleeping well.

obasan book

It talks about his journey to find better sleep and it also talks about the different fibers they use and why they use them. You can also find some great tips on how to get a better sleep in his book! If you want a FREE copy of Jean’s book, go on the following link http://obasan.ca/contact-us/request-a-catalogue/ or send me a quick email with your full name and address and I’ll make sure they send you a copy!

    I am thinking of buying some Obasan pillows and was looking for a review on them.  That’s when I happened upon your site.  Double bonus- got to read about Obasan and lucked out on finding a very interesting food site.  Thanks!
    I am a side sleeper.  I’d prefer no name embroidered on the pillow, please, as I’m not yet sure who the lucky baby is that will get this gift.  There are a few babies on the way that will need gifts for.

    I start on my side, but my wife tells me I sleep on my back (I don’t believe it… she tells me I snore as well – I don’t believe that either :) ).  I’d like “Katie” embroidered on the baby pillow. Thanks!

     I sleep on my side and we are not sure of the baby name yet~as he is not here yet.

  • Alex Vazquez

    I sleep on my side — I would love the name Sienna on the pillow

  • Ikkinlala

    I mostly sleep on my side (occasionally on my stomach, hardly ever on my back). I don’t have a child, and if I win a pillow I’m hoping I can get one without an embroidered name because none of the friends who are expecting have chosen names for their babies yet.
