A few weeks ago I introduced you to Australian company Linenly, home to the most beautiful organic bamboo bedlinen. I have been so excited to discover their range and even more so to dive into a bed freshly made with bamboo goodness! After impatiently stalking the postman for my order I quickly gave my new linen its first wash and manage to swap my sheets just in time for bed…

Because many of you are new to bamboo I promised to share my thoughts on this luxurious range and I made sure to spend a good month trying it out. I slept on it and under it, I washed it and dried it, I ironed it (low setting!) and even squeezed in a few sleep-ins which is very rare for me! There is a lot I want to say about Linenly, but in short let’s just say we are very impressed.

My Linenly order arrived quickly, it was delivered in a matter of days and carefully wrapped for safe transport and delivery. As you can see even the packaging is eco friendly: this nice fabric bag (which matches the colour of your new sheets) holds all your new linen and if you’re a master folder you may even be able to store everything back in there whilst not in use. It would most certainly make it easy to keep the sheets and pillow cases neatly together in your linen cupboard.

The sheets are silky soft and you instantly notice the high quality. All Linenly bamboo sheets have a rich 400 thread count and have been made with a premium sateen weave, it feels like sliding into a deluxe hotel bed every single night. Even after washing our sheets several times the smooth, silky feeling remains, which confirms the quality and durability of this bamboo fabric. For more fabulous facts about bamboo check out my earlier post about Linenly.

Keeping our old sheets onto our extra thick king size mattress was a daily cause of frustration but the Linenly fitted sheets are a generous 40cm deep (and stretchy) and therefore stay perfectly in place. I was so pleased with how the ‘forest’ colour matched with the headboard of our new King Living bed, it looks really clean and calming. Rest assured, there are eight stunning colours to choose from so there is a perfect shade for every bedroom.

If you are keen to give bamboo a go now is the time, with Linenly offering a massive 40% discount on all Linenly bamboo sheet sets. Prices are as marked, Australia-wide delivery is free for orders over $150.

Sweet Sale: 3 for 2 storewide at Smiggle

While Australian children are still impatiently waiting for Christmas celebrations to begin, my little half-Duchies are in luck. Every year on December 5th our family honours the Dutch tradition of Sinterklaas (Saint Nicholas) and the weeks leading up to it are filled with excitement and little gifts.

On several nights we’ve had six little shoes lined up in front of the fire place filled with drawings, craft, wishlists and even a carrot for Sinterklaas’ horse. These are some of the little shoe-stuffers lined up for my girls this year:

So far this has been the biggest hit of them all, this Bow Alphabet Keyring (RRP $9.95) was a major success with my girl. She absolutely adores her glitter keyring and was so proud to show her friends at school. She instantly attached her to her schoolbag and has mentioned over and over again how much she loves it. This is a real sweet and personal gift and a good size to tuck in Christmas stockings (and shoes!). You can buy the Bow Alphabet Keyring in (almost) all letters of the alphabet.

If pink is not your colour and glitter not your thing, do not worry. There are loads of different alphabet key rings to choose from to suit both boys and girls.

The unicorn craze is still going strong here so this cute Bath Fizzy (100g, RRP $5.95) was a perfect pick. Nothing like a bit of fizz and fragrance to make bath time fun! The bath fizzies are available in unicorn, mermaid, star and heart shape and smell like strawberry, blueberry and berry vanilla. At just over $5 they’re a fantastic price and a great little add-on for birthdays too. If your girls enjoy a spot of DIY there is a great Make Your Own Bath Fizzies kit too, it would make a cool school holiday activity.

I’ll be honest, this pretty Time to Shine Clock (RRP $34.95, ages 6+) is a bit of a selfish gift. I’m secretly hoping that this sparkly sequin alarm clock will help my early risers stay in bed a little longer on weekends. It’s probably a Christmas wish that won’t come true but at least it looks awesome. When you press the button it lights up the room with a beautiful glow and even tells the time, day and temperature out loud! Our ideal ‘Time to Shine’ is 7am or later, what about you?

Just like their mama my girls don’t leave the house with a tube of lipgloss in their bag. They are always looking for different scents so this Shine Gift Pack (5-pack, RRP $19.95) is sure to be well received when it comes to unwrapping time. Raspberry, bubblegum and ice cream, balm, roller and gloss, it’s a fabulous haul for little beauty queens. You even get some cute hair chalk and nail stickers to complete the look!00

Hip Tip: There is no better time than today to stock up on stocking fillers, with a fabulous 3 for 2 offer on all Smiggle goodies. Be quick, offer ends November 29, 2018!
