5 Reasons Why You Should Purchase Brooklinen Sheets!

Y2Happy Sunday everyone!! Today Im going to tell you why you need to get Brookline sheets! For those of you who have never heard of Brookline before, they are an online company that makes amazing products for your bed! I recently moved to Los Angeles and while shopping for bedsheets I came across a Facebook Ad for Brooklinen. I saw the 14k comments and reviews and thought it was just going to be another overrated product and let me tell you, I was wrong…. so wrong. I went through and figured I would give them a try considering they have a 60 day trial period. I ordered the Luxe Hardcore Bundle which includes: 1 Duvet Cover, 1 Core Sheet Set, and 2 Extra Pillow Cases for $228. After trying them out for a month I have to say I will never go back. Here are the 5 reasons why you should get Brookline Sheets!

Reason #1: The Sheets Are SUPER Soft!


When I first received the sheets I opened the box up just to feel how soft the sheets really were and they were super soft :). Brookline uses  480 Thread-count Egyptian Cotton Weave. I previously had a set of 1200 Thread count Egyptian Cotton sheets so I was Interested to see how these would compare. On the sheets itself,  it mentions you should wash before using for the best experience. The package even includes a sample of the Detergent that can be purchased on Brooklinen. The detergent smelt very clean and fresh and Im honestly considering getting that as well. When reading the comments you will see “They get softer after every wash” and I will say THEY GET SOFTER AFTER EVERY WASH!

Reason #2: So Many Options! 


Brooklinen Has so many cool options to choose from and the best part is, when selecting a Bundle you get to mix and match patterns and colors, there are no prepackaged sets. This to me was so much better than selecting a Bed in a Bag from Macy’s. When creating my bundle I selected the Smoke dot Core Sheet set, and the Solid Smoke Duvet cover. It has a very clean but playful look to it!

Reason #3: The Packaging!


Anyone who knows me will know that I love how a product is packaged and presented. PRESENTATION IS EVERYTHING! My Brooklinen sheets came in a brown box with grey stripes that had a convenient carrying handle on it. Surprisingly the box was a little heavier than I expected. Inside was this grey tote bag that had Brooklinen printed on one side and a Giant B on the other. The sheets were neatly folded and placed inside the tote bag with a note from the Brooklinen team. Not only did I love the box and the way the sheets were packaged but I loved that they provided a free tote bag. Its perfect if you are switching you sheets out and need to store some, or even to use for shopping! Either way it adds nice unique touch!

Reason #4: The Customer Service!


When I placed my order for my sheets I realized that I selected the wrong size for the 2 extra pillowcases. I was annoyed because I didn’t want to have to return the sheets and wait to receive them again. I also didn’t want to spend another $38 to get 2 of the correct sizes. I figured I would contact Customer Service and see what is my best option. I asked if it were possible to simply exchange the 2 pillow cases for the correct size rather than sending the whole sheet set back. Instead they responded by telling me they were going to send me the correct size and to keep the other pillow cases for another room. They saved me $38 and made me one happy customer! YOU ROCK!

Reason #5: There Is No Middle Man!


You can’t walk into a department store and buy Brooklinen sheets. This is what allows Brooklinen to provide their products at a lower cost. On their website it states that traditional bedding prices are sold for about 10x more than what it cost the company to produce them due to wholesaling and distribution. If you like saving money this is they way to go! If you opt for the Luxe Hardcore Bundle like I did, you will save 25% for bundling!


If you are really looking for better bed sheets I would highly recommend checking Brooklinen out! They are very luxurious, super soft Egyptian cotton sheets at a low price!

8 Reasons Why You Should Upgrade to VIP at Universal Studios Hollywood


You’re probably reading this because you’re looking to visit Universal Studios Hollywood and can’t decide wether to upgrade and get the VIP tour. Or because you’re one of the many friends I shared this link with. The VIP package is a 6 hour tour of Universal Studios backlots, and theme park. Here are 8 reasons why you should definitely opt for the VIP package.

Reason #1: FREE Valet Parking!

Front gate parking alone costs $40 (before 6PM) and Valet is typically $35 after 2.5 hours. With the VIP package you get to park in the beloved Frankenstein Garage which is very close to the entrance.IMG_4349

Reason #2: VIP Lounge!

When you enter the park you get to check in at the “Will Call” windows and once checked in you have private access to refreshments, snacks, bathrooms, and couches.


Reason #3: Personal Tour Guide!

The tour guide I received was extremely friendly, constantly kept telling jokes to make us laugh, and was very knowledgable about everything Universal.

Reason #4: Private VIP Trolley!

If you decide to go for the standard studio tour, you get placed in this very large, crammed trolley with hundreds of people. However the VIP trolley is much more smaller and only held up to about 35 people. Luckily for me there were only about 10 in our group so we all had lots of free room.


Reason #5: Tour of the Prop Warehouse!

Touring the prop warehouse is honestly one of the coolest things about the tour, you get to see where all the props from some of your favorite movies and tv shows are stored.


Reason #6: FREE VIP Lunch!

If you choose to go with the VIP package, you get to have lunch in a private dining room with meals prepared by Universals Executive chef. It was served buffet style but there were so many options that anyone can find something to eat. I’m a very picky eater and I was able to fill myself up. Theres also a ton of options for beverages.


Reason #7: No Waiting in Line for Rides!

The VIP badge you are given at the beginning of you tour doubles as a Front of Line pass. So no waiting in line for a ride, you will get the VIP treatment and be given the best seats without a wait. The tour includes a trip on every ride in the park. Front of Line passes cost varies but can go as high as $254 a day not including admission.


Reason #8: All Day Fun!

After the tour is wrapped up and you are forced to say goodbye to your tour guide and group who you’ve come to know and love, you get to stick around in the park until it closes so the fun doesn’t end there. So you can go cut the line of your favorite ride again and again until you no longer can ride a broom through Hogwarts.

The VIP experience is truly one of the most exclusive ways for a nobody to tour the Worlds largest Movie Studio and Theme Park and feel like a somebody. You should absolutely opt for the VIP Package. Although its pricey ranging from $349-$409 (depending what time of year you choose to go), it’s totally worth the money!


Depending on how fast you get through the beginning of the Studio Tour, your tour guide  may allow you to get off the trolley and walk around the sets. I am a HUGE Desperate Housewives fan and my tour guide allowed us to walk down Wisteria Lane (Colonial St), City Hall where Back to the Future was filmed, and “Downtown New York”.  IMG_5791
