Shop Love: Gingerlily

Ever since I was told that silk bedding is naturally hypoallergenic and helps fight anti-ageing I’ve been looking for silk sheets in shades of blue to compliment my bedroom setting. Well, I found them! They are from a place called Gingerlily and check out these gorgeous images!

Gingerlily are the leading specialists in silk bedding of the absolute finest quality. Silk is not only the ultimate in luxury; it helps to regulate body temperature and also won’t soak up your night cream, allowing it to work more effectively, so giving you double the benefits. A silk pillowcase can also cure the dreaded ‘bed-head’ hair! Who knew!?

I also love these collections (above) in pretty shades of blush and maroon and love that they even sit nicely along side the blues. (What a result!)

Gingerlily was established in 2004 by Deborah and Celina who felt that there was a need for luxurious but healthy bedding. The first product, the silk filled duvets, were so successful that due to customer requests other products were added. The company quickly expanded and Gingerlily products are now stocked throughout the world in leading department stores and many independent retailers in store and online.

The success of the company has been due to its products which are designed in-house with great attention to detail. Gingerlily products are made using only the finest A grade long fibre mulberry silk. They also sell eye masks, sleepwear, sheets, duvet covers and inserts for pillow and duvets.

Now, of course, silk is always going to be more expensive than cotton, but then with all the benefits I mentioned above. I’m sold!

Top tips for Christmas!

christmas_2014

Christmas is fast approaching and it’s almost time to get out the decs and begin to turn your house into your own festive grotto.

There are a few brilliant items above that might just help you this year. Not only are the beautifully designed but helpful too.

1. For those who are allergic to real trees (me!) or for those who prefer to save money in the long run by buying a fake tree and re-using it forever more.. try this beauty from Lights4Fun. I shot the image above (with Oliver Perrott) and I can guarantee the tree is of the highest quality! Check it out here.

2. Cox and Cox sell these brilliant (and incredibly simple) bauble hangers. You just thread one end of the hook through the bauble and hook the other end over the tree branch. I have been using these hooks for years now on Christmas photo shoots and I can assure you that you come out with less scratches when decorating a large tree!

3. This has got to be the most BEAUTIFUL christmas tree base I’ve ever seen. It’s by Skagerak and is available in a few different designs. The foot of the tree can often get left out and this will make it feel just as important as the rest of the tree.

4. I am buying me a whole lotta these this year. Such a great idea! Rather than putting a thumb tack through my mantle piece, you can buy these simple stocking hangers from Selfridges. It’s one of those ‘why didn’t I think of that’ moments! (Available in a pack of four.)
