#sleeptember with Silentnight


Insomnia has plagued my life for over a year now and it can be incredibly debilitating.  A few good hours sleep are like gold dust for me usually and so joining in the #sleeptember with Silentnight campaign was going to be one that would hold challenges for me and I was keen to see if any of the sleep aids that the team from Silentnight and The Bedding Company were sending would help me.

I was kindly sent a cop Dr Nerina’s book ‘Tired but Wired’, a Deep Sleep duvet and pair of Deep Sleep pillows from the Silentnight range.  Timing was perfect for the new bedding after updating my bedroom with my gorgeous new wooden sleigh bed a few months back and the pillows were gorgeously plump when I released them from their plastic wrappings.  Each pair has been designed specifically to envelop you with a feeling of warmth, snugness and comfort – exactly what your bed should feel like.

FrameChain Contemporary Glasses Chains – Review


If you wear glasses then you’ll know there is nothing more annoying that losing them. One minute their on your head and the next you’ve put them down and can’t find them.  I have lost track of the number of times over the gorgeous summer and late autumn sunshine that I’ve put my sunglasses on the roof of the car and nearly driven off with them there.  Thankfully though this is now a thing of the past thanks to two forward thinking and creative designers Annie and Vanessa at FrameChain.
