All aboard H.M.S Dreamboat you dreamy beasts!
This is your Captain speaking… kidding guys, it’s me, Cassie.
You might be wondering what on earth is behind this week’s snooze inspired edit. I mean it’s only sleep right?! WRONG! Thanks to a podcast I stumbled upon with Joe Rogan and some sleep scientist dude (whose name I can’t remember) I learnt that sleep is ridiculously important and we should all be getting at least 8 hours of old Mr Sandman’s sleepy dust. Which is effed af because I am averaging around half of that (boo!) and have been missing out on a super legit excuse to sleep in guilt-free (yay!).
So in the spirit of celebrating all things snoozy, I thought I would create an edit that brings together some of the best sleep inspired products the world wide web has ever had in one place! And for an added touch (or a fudge ton really) of luxe, I have done a designer spotlight on those clever little critters over at Studio 54 Interior Design. If anyone knows how to max the luxe out of a bedroom it’s those gals (and guys).
I’ve also sourced some of the most beautiful bedding from Shhh Silk. Just when you thought you’d finally reached the pinnacle of luxiness they go and bring out a range of marble printed silky pillows, linens and eye masks! Liberace in a Lambo can’t even compete with that shit! And they’re all available for you to shop right here on the good ol’ X CARTEL.
There’s also an incredibly literal interpretation of some creature comforts with some kawaii sleep lamps and humidifiers, as well some 'oily moining' face cleansers from Chanel and Sunday Riley. So be on the lookout and brace for some ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ people.
And for anyone struggling to get some zzz’s I have put together some excellent finds for a midnight treat or two. So now you can kiss counting sheep goodbye as you climb into a Talentless ‘sweat set’. Or if you are like me and your mind starts racing with a million moronic ideas the second your head hits your silky marble pillow, you can jot them all down on the groovy moon posties I found for y'all. 'Brilliant' ideas I’ve jotted down recently include ‘must make crowdfunding app so strangers can help me buy a house’ and ‘banana, caramel, almond butter smoothie? Add a sprinkle of salt’. With genius ideas like that it's nice to know that the post-its are FREE just for you lucky readers so there's no reason not to get all those thoughts onto paper, even if they do seem bonkers in the morning.
All that’s left to do now is send you on your merry way Titanic style, minus the Leo (boo again) and the iceberg (yay again).
Bon Voyage Beasties!
