My Struggles With Anxiety | New Season

My Struggles With Anxiety

My Struggles With Anxiety As a third-year university student that is tackling a double major while stressing about what I want to do upon graduation, it is safe to say that my anxiety has increased quite a bit. With the COVID lockdown and feeling trapped and alone I stumbled upon weighted blankets as a coping method for insomnia which is something I struggle with.

I tried out my first weighted blanket a few years back and unfortunately for me, I not only felt suffocated but all the beads inside shifted and I could no longer use it after the first wash. I was hesitant to try out anymore but after a doctor recommended me this brand and blanket it is safe to say I instantly fell in love.

At first glance, the weighted throw is much different than other weighted blankets in the market. In the past, I had to struggle with hiding the weighted blanket under my duvet because the look of it wasn’t the greatest. This faux fur throw not only looks great on the bed but I am able to use it in the living room while watching television as well as it helps comfort me while I study.

As a student the most important thing to me is time. I don’t have time to take my weighted blanket to the dry cleaners or hand wash it at home. When I found out that this throw is machine washable and gets softer even after a couple of washes it became my holy grail sleep essential. I can’t sleep without my weighted throw and I have recommended this blanket to so many friends and family because of how life-changing it is! So if you haven’t tried a weighted blanket this is your sign to get one.

The Secret To my Luscious Locks | New Season

The Secret To my Luscious Locks

People always ask me what my secret is too long luscious hair.

The answer is simple along with investing in high quality hair products a silk pillowcase is essential in making sure I maintain the overall health of my hair. I am someone that has struggled with bed head for years. I hated waking up with a poofy mess and with someone with thick long hair a bun is not always the best option… unless I wanted a headache the next day. I remember hearing about silk pillowcases and immediately my first thought was why invest in silk when you can use satin.

For years I tried satin pillowcases I would find on sale at homesense and marshalls, and each night no matter what it would always feel scratchy on my face and I hated the overall feeling of it. After time and research I finally came across the HugMe silk pillowcases and this has instantly became my holy grail product. I finally understand what the hype is about and why people rave about the silk pillowcases.

My blowouts last longer, my hair is less frizzy and I no longer have to wash my hair every other day causing way less damage. I noticed right away the difference between the HugMe pillowcase and other ones I have tried in the past and I noticed right away the high quality and the built-in envelope that ensures the pillowcase doesn’t slip away. This pillowcase has been a game-changer and not only has my hair never felt healthier but it cut down my getting ready time in half. I no longer have to restyle my hair every single morning and ever since I purchased this I no longer have to deal with bed head and hard to manage tangles.

We heard the struggle its hard to put inside duvet covers, it moves around alot over night, It gets too hot. We heard it all. But have you heard of money well spent? That is what we can ensure when you invest in our top quality duvets and here are a couple reasons why.

  • You can pick how fluffy you want

Unlike prefilled comforter sets, you get to pick how fluffy you want you're duvet to be. Whether you want the fluffiest duvet or one thats so thin you can barely feel it on there are many to choose from. For those of you that want a fluffy duvet with loads of volume we suggest the Australian Wool Duvet and for those that want something thin that will keep them warm we suggest the 4 seasonal Microgel Duvet thats perfect year round.

  • You can find one that suits you're needs 

If you're someone that gets too cold at night or too hot, by investing in a duvet that caters to you're needs you're guaranteed either a cool nights sleep using a cool and comfy duvet. Or a warm night using the Australian wool. 

  • Makes laundry day easier

Unlike comforters duvets will make laundry day easier because it does not require dry cleaning. With a duvet its the same as having a pillow. This means the only thing you need to wash is you're duvet cover really. However we do suggest washing you're duvet once a year and thats easy as our duvets are machine washable.

  • Allows you to change designs frequently

Duvets are great for storage so you're linen closet isn’t overflowing with hard to manage comforter sets. With duvets you're able to frequently stack up on loads of different colours and fabrics. We suggest trying out our bamboo linen duvet cover line thats a mix of two of our best selling fabrics!

  • Lasts longer then comforters

When you invest in a duvet you're also investing in the quality. We promise that with any of our duvets you're guaranteed 5 years at least before having to change to a new one. Not only will you be saving money wise in up coming years but you will also save on storage space as well!

  • More hygienic 

Ever wonder why hotels and hospitals always prefer to use duvets instead of comforters? The reason is simple and that is duvets are more hygienic. If you're someone that has an allergy we created hypoallergenic duvets such as microgel duvets that are perfect for those that are chronically ill, have ezema and allergies!

 

All in all these are just a few reasons of why you should invest in a duvet. For more information don’t hesitate to reach out and I’m always more then happy to answer any of you're questions

Don't Just Stay In your Comfort Zone | New Season

Don't Just Stay In your Comfort Zone

Over many years I experienced a number of customers that came in and were scared to experiment. Imagine being scared of colour?? That was the fear of many customers especially those that stuck to whites and greys.

Personally, I always stuck with whites too. All white bedrooms, so nothing looked off was always my go to look. But overtime not only did it get boring, but the maintenance of keeping my sheets white and spotless was just not it, especially with my busy schedule.

Overtime I gradually started experimenting with more colours. When I first saw the burnt orange in the bamboo linen my first thought was “ this is way too out of my comfort zone” and after experimenting with the entire line it has instantly became my go to duvet cover. The key with introducing colour is always mix and matching and remember dark goes well with light. There's so many colour combinations that I now wonder why are we so scared to experiment.

You may have heard the saying, that once a bed is made it makes the entire room feel clean and that is what you want. I love mixing white sheets with different colour duvets. The earthy tones are what I go for because not only is it neutral, but it helps me in hiding wrinkles and dust as well.

So for those of my readers who aren’t ready to experiment with colours just yet. That's totally okay, instead how about trying out just a colourful pillowcase and gradually moving up! We have so many fabrics to choose from and we hope we can help take you out of your comfort zone!!
