Better sleep with Emma Original Mattress

Our boy will turn 10 this year so we were thinking of changing to a better mattress for him. It was so coincidental that Emma, maker of Europe’s most awarded Mattress, contacted us just then. It was just perfect because the Emma Original Mattress is exactly what we were looking for and more!

The mattress came in a relatively small box and we were really taken aback by how compact it was stored (as you will later see how big it actually is). He didn’t believe me that his mattress was in there.

Super pumped to see his new mattress

After we removed the mattress from the box:

The Emma Original Mattress is perfect for all types of sleepers as the high-quality foams adapt to the body. The Innovative Airgocell® regulates temperature and the foam – made from natural materials – helps you stay cool all night. This innovative layer wicks moisture away and prevents you from getting too hot. The high-quality cover also supports perfect air circulation.

Full Support

The Emma Original Mattress also uses advanced zoning to keep you supported in the areas you need it the most. The three-layered mattress core adapts to any body shape to align your spine, so you sleep happier in any sleeping position.

I was so surprised to see the make-up of the mattress when I unzipped the protective cover!

I haven’t quite seen anything like this before in my life. So cool! There’s a more detailed writeup with a diagram below with descriptions.

The high-quality foams work together perfectly to distribute all pressure evenly across the entire mattress. If you are easily disturbed by your partner’s tossing, you’d be glad to know that thanks to the exceptional motion isolation, you’ll have better sleep from now on. We got the Single Size for him but it looks wayyy bigger and it’s thick. Here’s a reference for you to check if your mattress cover can handle it:

With such an awesome looking mattress, of course the little one could not wait for me to put on the sheets.

He just had to try it. Like right now. Who needs sheets?

The Emma Original Mattress is really supremely comfortable. You can feel the support but it’s not the overly firm, uncomfortable mattress you’re thinking of. I’m really impressed by the quality. And I was even more astonished that this quality German-made mattress does not come with a huge price tag, and even comes with a 10-year warranty. Delivery and returns is free and contactless.

Don’t take my word for it. They offer a 100-night trial, but I don’t think you’ll need long to decide if you love it. Because you will.

Here’s a quick summary and overview of the mattress:

They have an awesome discount going on now (only $349 for Single – that’s 30% savings!) and you can use this promo code, SIMPLY10 (valid only for 7 days from today), for even more savings.

Invest in a better sleep with Emma Original Mattress. It’s affordable luxury we all need.

Refreshing functional beverages for health and beauty | Doki Doki

I just realised that it’s been quite a long while since I have updated my blog. So much has been going on with work and I’ve been spending my free time pursuing my new hobbies of baking bread and cakes that I have been extremely selective about who I collaborate with on the blog.

I only do honest reviews on this blog so those products I don’t actually really like or aren’t a good fit don’t appear here, unless with prior approval of the brand. So after this hiatus on the blog, here’s a review of this very tasty beverage I’ve been taking regularly with zero guilt and maximum pleasure.

It has been a madly warm season and even though I’m not one to crave cold drinks usually, I have been helping myself to one of these delicious Doki Doki drinks, especially in the afternoons.  

Who could resist this refreshing drink in this sweltering heat?

What are these beverages for? They are not just meant to be tasty, although they score really high in that area, for most of the flavours I’ve tried.


So this series of beverages are actually collagen supplements. Who’d have thought that supplements could taste this good that I’d look forward to having them? The beverage (first photo) is the Strawberry Acerola Glow+ Anti-photoaging Collagen.

What it is and how it works

Blended with real strawberry, acerola and guava for great taste, this delicious drink is clinically proven to prevent hyperpigmentation and is formulated with Gut-Skin Microbiome Advancement™. Formulated with prebiotics to rebalance the ratio of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria of the gut microflora, consuming the drink leads to a decrease in skin sensitivity to photo-ageing (preventing the formation of dark spots due to exposure to UV).

It contains lactose-based prebiotics to strengthen the gut and promote skin health and contains 2500mg of Type 1 Hydrolysed Marine Collagen – broken into its simplest compounds for faster and more thorough absorption into the skin. No added artificial concentrates or refined sugars are added to the drink and each pouch is only about 75kcal, if you are counting your calories.

The other beverages featured above are from the Full Glow Collagen Bundle (4-week bundle, a total of 16 pouches). Included in the bundle set is one box each of Lychee Goji GLOW, Mango Peach GLOW, Passion Dragon Fruit GLOW and Raspberry Grape Skin GLOW. This sequence in the list is also representative of how much I like the flavours from my favourite to the least favourite. I love lychee so anything lychee is likely to rank high for me. 😀 But more than just that, the lychee one has the most visible pulp that is not dissolved into the drink because of the Goji berries and there are also bits of lychee.


To make the drink, simply empty the pouch into a glass and add water (and ice if preferred). I prefer cold water but you can just add room temperature water. On very warm days, I add more ice. It’s just delicious however you prepare it.


This range contains 5000mg Type 1 Hydrolysed Marine Collagen for firmer and hydrated skin. Again, it is less than 100 calories per serving so you can enjoy without guilt knowing that what you’re putting into your body is blended with carefully selected natural fruits that has not only beauty-loaded benefits but also vitamins and minerals for overall wellness. There are no added artificial concentrates and it is sweetened naturally with Stevia – no fructose or sugar.


There are many other supplements targeting different areas such as brightening, wrinkles, hydration and so on in Doki Doki so be sure to check out what they have to offer. They also carry calorie burning beverages (I do not know how it tastes though since I’ve not tried it).

You have a few more days to capitalise on the Mid-Year Sale. Receive $11 off for all orders above $79.90. Use code 11DOKIOFF, till end of July.

I think the 4-week bundle set is really value for money especially it’s only going for $49.90 now for a limited time (U.P. $59.60), so be sure to stock up on your delish supply of collagen!
