what images would pop into your mind if i were to ask you to describe the feel of your bedroom?  the place where you go at the end of a very long day to rest and recharge?  would you call it your sanctuary? no?? yikes!  at a minimum your bedroom is a place for sleeping, relaxing, and (don’t forget) romance, but it can be so much more!  it can be your sanctuary.  in 2019, i plan to spruce up my bedroom to create a space of total serenity.  i love to sleep, so why not make the area where i spend nearly one-fourth of my time super comfortable?  so, why don’t we do a boudoir refresh together??….to that point i thought i would share a few of my favorite bedroom essentials to turn each of our respective bedrooms into the oasis of our wildest dreams!

 

 

 

 

 

 

if you are going to spend a significant portion of your life between the sheets, shouldn’t they feel fabulous?  these luxurious organic cotton sheets from nordstrom are so soft and yummy that your transition into never-never land is as easy as 1,2,3.  pssst…they are on sale right now so hurry up!

 

a few years back i stumbled upon the holy grail of pillows, the luxe pillow collection from bloomingdales.  a friend of mine turned me on to them years ago.  i had the pleasure of test driving them during a visit.  it was like sleeping on a cloud!  best nights sleep of my life.

 

speaking of beauty sleep, i will admit i was skeptical upon first hearing about the magic behind the silk pillowcase even though my grandma swore by a similar one that she used when i was a kid.  however, the grown-up me was gloriously proven wrong, with nearly four hundred five star reviews, this silk pillowcase is a gem. this pillowcase keeps your hair from frizzing and tangling into a bird’s nest so that you wake up looking like more like sleeping beauty and less like the wicked witch of the west.  if you are a side sleeper, this also helps with those pesky creases that appear on your face after tossing and turning on your regular cotton or linen pillowcase.

 

a cuddly down comforter isn’t just for those living in cold climates.  if you don’t sleep huddled in a cave of blankets, have no fear. you can choose your fill power with a higher fill power (around 600+) being the warmest option for those wanting to keep it toasty.   

 

the surge in peeper keepers is in part due to the fact that in today’s fast-paced world, most of us are not getting the recommended seven to nine hours of rest.  blame it on life’s wonderful distractions, busy schedules, kids, pets, netflix binging (guilty) and social media. banish those bags and promote restful, rejuvenating beauty sleep with slip’s silky eye mask to keep your eye area looking young and bright (sans plastic surgery town)

 

for those cold winter nights, i love a good throw to snuggle up with on the sofa.  this hefty merino wool blanket is the perfect cuddle companion when you are feeling the chills.  who doesn’t love a chunky knit? sweater weather indeed.

 

does this inspire you to update your dream zone?
