Are you always the friend that constantly feels judged for your 3-sugars-plus-whole-milk-coffee? Well, lucky for you, there’s now a great excuse to fire back against your judgy, coffee-sans-anything drinkers.

Just tap the bedside hub, insert the slim pillow insert, and catch some better zzz’s. (Van Winkle’s)
