Here’s My Story

Layla Stewart

I’m a mother, an entrepreneur, and a writer—I’m Layla Stewart, and there’s something important you need to know about sleep.

You’re probably not getting enough of it. It’s estimated that only ⅓ of adults in the United States get enough sleep to properly function, and that’s scary.

I hit a brick wall. I wasn’t getting enough sleep, and I was feeling angry, exhausted, and unwilling to abide by my obligations.

You’re a different person when you’re not getting any sleep.

Then, I slept in past my alarm. I woke up to find that I was three hours late for work and endured a one-week suspension. That was the best thing that ever could have happened.

Between sleep catching up to me and finally resting on my new pillow, I was in unwakeable REM sleep. I set six alarms so I would wake up, and I slept through all of them—the first red flag is that I needed six alarms to wake up. That’s not healthy.

That one-week suspension gave me time to get intimate with my new pillow, and then I bought another. Then another.

Before long I was sleeping right, and I felt like a million bucks. No more fatigue, no more unnecessary eating, and no more grumpiness. It was like I went back in time.

That’s why I made VJ Pillow. I know you’re probably not getting enough sleep, but it’s not always easy to rest up. Sometimes we just buy bargain bin pillows for a few bucks a pop, and then they flatten out in a week.

Some of us have allergies and don’t understand how allergens affect us when we sleep, and need hypoallergenic pillows.

It’s time to get back to a healthy sleeping ritual.

I made VJ Pillow to bring you the best pillows, explain sleep, and showcase exactly what you need to get a better night’s rest.

Everything you’ve ever needed to know about comfort and sleep is right here.

I’m building an endless archive of the best pillows and information about them.

Together, we’re going to ensure you get more quality sleep than ever before, with top-notch comfort in mind.
