Sleep time with Sealy

This evening I am sat snuggled on my sofa wearing my favourite White Company pyjamas, a wool blanket draped across my shoulders and enough candles to light a church burning in my lounge. It might be because I am getting carried away reading the Little Book of Hygge or maybe because today was the first time I have worn a scarf for six months, but I am feeling well and truly Autumnal. Part of enjoying Autumn is nesting down at home and getting ready for the winter months.

My favourite spot to be cosy is in a freshly made bed - nothing beats it. But something I am very guilty of (and I think there are a lot of us out there) is leaving quite a long time between updating my pillows and duvets. They are on of those things that no one really wants to spend money on and they often stay pretty low down the priority list but apparently you should change your pillows every two years. In which case I am very overdue...

So when I was approached by Sealy, I jumped at the chance to review their new range of pillows.

When I first tried them out, they were a lot fuller than I am used to (probably because my old pillows had seen better days!) and the first night's sleep I was a bit unsure whether they were for me. However a few days later I was totally convinced.

The new ‘Select’ range uses a hypoallergenic synthetic fibre which replicates silk so it has a super-fine filling to give softness and springiness. They are also very plump and seem to hold their shape really well which looks really quite luxurious. I normally wake up with my pillow squashed up against my headboard, with the pillowcase half hanging off, but that hasn't happened at all with these.

What I really love about them though, aside from them feeling really soft and supportive from a sleep perspective, is that they look great on the bed. They have a really generous amount of filling which ensures the pillow cases are really adequately filled so you get that really sumptuous look which you usually just see on styled shoots.

The pillows start at £33.99 and can be found at House of Fraser.

Sealy provided me with these pillows to review, but as ever, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Getting Cosy in the Bedroom

As I write this, the remnants of Hurricane Bertha are slamming at my window. Torrential rain, strong wind and the odd crash of thunder. Summer feels long gone and everything seems rather autumnal today. When the weather cools down there is nothing like great bedding and accessories to cosy up in. So today I am running through my top bedding picks available on the highstreet, along with a run down of some super cosy accessories to turn your bedroom into a homely haven as the weather starts to turn...
This gorgeous bedding is from Loaf and is made from 100% Belgian linen. It comes in 4 neutral colours and is definitely on my want list! Style with warm whites, natural woods and wicker and a cable knit throw.

This braid effect duvet is from West Elm, made from 100% organic cotton. I love the texture the braid effect creates making it feel super sumptuous and very cosy. Add some scandi with a sheepskin rug by the feet of the bed and some painted white furniture.

Checks are a classic look which never go out of style. Laura Ashley's Hendon Check is perfect to add a touch of colour to a neutral space. I love the modern lamp on the bedside table but if it were me I would go with a simple headboard, adding some feminine touches with natural textures used in cushions and throws.

The White Company make gorgeous bedding and this washed linen set is no exception. For me this room is perfect - raw wood, cosy throws topped off with the relaxed feel of the bedding. Perfect reason to lie in on a Sunday.

Here are some accessories to make make sure your bedroom is a haven for you this Autumn...
