there’s no place like bed

bonjour friends, ca va? after a year of not posting, here’s the second in one week…how come? well i wanted to do a post before mother’s day and it’s coming up quick so, here we are!

have you ever wanted a set of pink sheets? rose, blush, nude, what ever shade we gravitate toward, pink is a healing and soothing color. it’s tricky to decorate with since it’s so feminine but that’s why the bed is the perfect place to indulge in its comforting and alluring appeal. (photos via

many of us love pink in all its glorious shades but we’re also super picky…we don’t want bubble gum, others are too peach, others too pale or bright. each person’s pink is very specific.

it’s tricky nailing our perfect pink but when we hit on it there’s nothing else that compares when slipping between the sheets. it’s like a cocoon or as my friend described these sheets i’m about to share, it’s like sleeping on a rose petal.

i’ve always been a cotton purist, loving egyptian and indian cotton and just basically enjoyed how cotton wears and get softer with age. linen too, in fact all natural fibers on the bed has always been the first order of business when building the perfect bed.

vintage french cotton sheets and pillowcases will always be welcome accents but friends, i’m excited to tell you about my new discovery because it also inspired something else i’ve been wanting to share.

after staying at a friend’s place and having one of the best sleeps of my life on her sheets, i had to order a set for myself and was bursting at the seams when they arrived. i got a pink set and, as you can see from the top shot, neo loves them too!

so this is twofold…first of all the sheet set i ordered is called sheex first of all they are the most delicious shade of pink. secondly, they’re made from 100% Tencel Lyocell eucalyptus tree fibers, are eco-friendly. and…they’re naturally cooling. the company offers a few different products and i did order the wrong ones at first, so be sure they’re the ‘arctic aire’ if you’re going to test these out. as you may know, when photographing, pinks and reds can be really hard to capture. below are the sheets on my bed and next is a shot ofthem on amazon with what may be a truer color. but even then i find that they’re more of a neutral pink than the bright that they seem below. they really nailed the shade in my opinion but they have to be seen to be appreciated.

anyway the good news is that they come in a few colors and if you’re not into pink you get them in cream or white. either way, i highly recommend them for being beautifully made, super soft and guaranteed to be the perfect gift. beware tho, they’re also guaranteed to keep you in bed a little longer each morning!

click the pic below to see the details or purchase on amazon, or you can use this link:

last but not least i wanted to share that these sheets inspired me to get my amazon affiliate account back up and running. if you don’t know, you can sign up on amazon to recommend products you’re passionate about. when someone purchases, the affiliates receive a commission. it can be something like these sheets or books, movies, products, beauty items, candles, etc. i wanted to discuss it briefly since it’s something many of us can do that’s both fun and satisfying. if you’re interested in learning more about it, I finally cracked the code and although i’m no expert, believe we can all help each other to learn and grow in business and pleasure. let me know if you’re interested in the topic and if so, we can go further in depth.

et alors, c’est tout for today, sweet dreams mes amis!
