Yellow Tulip & Satin Pillowslip

It may be an old wives tale, but I decided over the weekend to purchase a 100% silk pillow-slip, in the hope that it will alleviate (or rather slow down) the wrinkles and bags that are accumulating on my rather mature face.  On getting a quote from an Eye Specialist to remove the offending character lines etc, which was approximately $11,000 NZ dollars, I decided for the price of a pillow-slip (under $100 NZ) that I would go with the cheaper option.

Why you ask, am I doing this? Well I happened to read in, I think it was British Vogue about the merits of sleeping on silk.  I was further convinced with the fine-print on the packaging.  So here goes.  1st Night woke up early (felt weird sleeping on silk) but looking forward to second attempt tonight.  What a stylish way to sleep.

I fell into the art of style quite by accident. There was no defining moment when I decided that I knew what I wanted to do. I want people to feel good about themselves. Many don’t know where to shop and/or how to wear fashion. It has never been solely about cost, but of finding quality at a reasonable price and being able to wear - to suit your own figure, style and fashion. Join me as we explore – What is Style?

    I had a silk pillow case a few years back. My beautician and also hairdresser recommended them. It was nice to sleep on but I didn’t notice any dramatic improvements in hair or face, but then again nothing bad happened either! 😊

    • I am on day 2 of another bad night’s sleep so my love affair with silk may be very short. The rate I am going those bags and lines will be getting very tired. Have a nice Anzac Weekend. xx
