Trouble Sleeping?

Ok so this is a bit of a different blog post, however, I am hoping that if anyone else has this problem then this post may be of help! As you may know I moved house in the New Year to a lovely new flat in London.  The first night my boyfriend had a terrible nights sleep as he could hear someone snoring. Me being a light sleeper, managed to sleep through this and didn’t really think much of it. That was till the second night and come 11.30pm there was rather annoying loud drone coming from the flat below.

After multiple nights of not only struggling to get to sleep, but also being woken up in the middle of the night to this awful noise, I remembered I had bought some ear plugs a while back. These were just a cheap purchase from Superdrug and unfortunately I struggled to get them to stay in my ear. So I went on a hunt for some new ear plugs. After researching thoroughly I found Mack's Soft Foam Slim Fit Earplugs which are designed for smaller ear canals, which supposedly most women have. I have no idea how you know if you have smaller ear canals, apart from trial and error whereby other ear plugs do not stay in! Anywho, I found a set for £3.69 so I purchased them to try.

Once they arrived I tried them that evening and I was pleasantly surprised as to how easy they were to insert.  They were also very comfortable, stayed in for the majority of the night, and most importantly they blocked out the snoring! I was finally able to sleep through the night without being woken up by the dreadful snoring. I would highly recommend these if you do suffer from restless nights from any type of noise, I even struggle to hear my boyfriend when he is talking to me with them in!

Have you ever had to deal with noisy neighbours, whether it is snoring or other types of noise? I would love to know how you deal with it!

  1. This is such a great post, it's nice to see something a bit different and actually very functional and practical! My step dad snores so loudly that he and Mum have to have rooms at opposite ends of the house, I may suggest these to her! xx

    1. Thank you so much for your comment! I am pleased you liked it as I was a bit worried about posting it. Aw no, how sad! Definitely recommend them, they have saved my sleep and for just £4 they are worth a try!! xx

  2. I love ear plugs, I just use the Tesco own brand ones (the case isn't as cool as this one!) I use them for sleeping and for when my boyfriend's band are playing a gig. I usually find my ears ring for days afterward if I don't use them, and seeing as my job involves a lot of phone time I figured risking my hearing is a daft idea!

    Glad your getting your sleeping back on track :)
