Sleep is definitely my favorite activity, my only motivation for getting up in the morning is knowing that once I get through the entire day I can get back into bed lol.
Unfortunately even though I love to sleep, I do not always have the easiest time falling and then staying asleep. My odyssey, if you will, is to achieve the perfect night’s sleep, and I will try just about any (legal) means to obtain that goal.
My latest experiments lead me to the luscious world of silk. I have been reading about the benefits of silk pillowcases for quite a while, and people swear by the benefits they have seen to their hair and skin after making the switch. However, what really got me intrigued to take the plunge, was the promise that throughout the night the pillowcase will remain cool… I cannot stand a warm pillow when I am attempting to slumber. When I discovered the Slip brand pictured above, and realized I could have all of the benefits listed above and still have a pillow case that it is machine washable I decided to give it a go. I must say, maybe I am just loving the fact that sleeping on silk seems super luxurious but I am loving the experience so far.
While looking at the various silk pillowcase options at Bloomingdales home I also stumbled upon Slip’s wide array of sleep masks. I can say from experience masks really are effective at blocking light and help me stay asleep. The silk mask is supposedly better for your hair and face than traditional eye masks and I appreciate the fact that this mask is made from an all-natural material. My old sleep mask, though effective, was made of synthetic materials that I never felt totally crazy about. Once again this product is a winner, and will definitely be a mainstay in my nightly routine.
So there you have it, my latest attempts at achieving the perfect night’s sleep. What tricks do you use?
