In Bed With Naturepedic: Lay Down Luxury Where it Counts

Women (and men) spend so much time and energy on beautifying products, beautifying spaces, restorative and enriching experiences…but often, we are too busy leading our fabulous lives that we forget the absolute best lifestyle-affirming inner-glow-giving routine starts and ends with a great night’s sleep! The Guestlist Girls were invited to experience the ultimate in sleep luxury at the Madison Park Tower! Naturepedic makes the most sustainably designed, beautifully crafted Certified Organic mattresses in the world, wants you to remember you need a good rest, and also, you should choose to sleep as luxuriously as you live…

Remember the story ‘The Princess and the Pea? Well, we are American women who have California King Dreams and Cashmere tastes. We spent a lot of time learning and loving the ELYSIUM, the finest and plushest model on offer. With a 16-inch height full of customizable layers that include a 3-inch pillow top layer made of organic latex (made from actual rubber trees!!), and two layers of encased coils. No Princessa, Doña, Vicereine or Head of State will EVER go without restful slumber on this bed! Especially one as sensitive as Saucy; who is allergic to oh so many things!

Health and well-being at Naturepedic begin with their Halcyon collection. The collection is made WITHOUT any man-made petroleum-based fibers. It boasts PLENTY of organic cotton, cashmere, and alpaca to carry you off into a Deep-REM cycle of new dreams to make come true.

The Naturepedic Halcyon organic mattresses are designed with traditional craftsmanship. Best known for their organic cotton-wrapped coils, each individually stitched in place. The three Halcyon by Naturepedic models, the ELYSIUM, ARCADIA, and AZURE offer fully customizable padding from plush to firm (our fave) to meet each side of the bed’s comfort needs. Organic cotton + alpaca/cashmere wool is used for optimal sleep temperature regulations; any organic latex used is created from actual rubber trees, not petroleum.

A big part of living your best life is the quality of rest and relaxation you permit yourself. Remember to pamper yourself with between the all the excitement that life has to offer!

The Halcyon by Naturepedic organic mattress collection has no foreign substances, no chemicals, and no toxins.

Let’s Sleep In: Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow

As one who cherishes sleep (those late night blog writing sessions do catch up), and typically experiences sweltering nights of sleep, having good solutions for a more restful night of sleep is essential. How do you enjoy a more restful and less humid night of sleep? With the Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow, of course, a shredded style combination pillow that never goes flat, keeps you cool while you sleep, and never loses support.

The Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow, developed by Dr. Rick Swartzburg, D.C., is one of four Snuggle-Pedic products that help you enjoy a Mattress. What makes the Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow different from other Down pillows? While other Down pillows are comfortable and conforming, they constantly need to be fluffed, they do not hold their shape throughout the night, they are a problem for those that suffer from feather allergies, they can be too dense and heavy, which in our case really makes us sweat while we sleep.

The Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow uses a proprietary mix of very special hypo-allergenic and extremely low V.O.C. Biogreen® memory foam and CertiPUR-US® certified foam. These small pieces are extremely soft and fluffy and make the Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow lighter and more resilient than the typical shredded memory foam pillows found on the market.

While the Snuggle-Pedic conforms to your neck and head for proper orthopedic support, the fluffy, yet resilient and light fill used in the Snuggle-Pedic pillows will return adjust to every position you sleep in. The soft and luxurious Kool-Flow™ Micro-Vented Bamboo Cover, along with the soft and fluffy interlocking foam pieces offer an unprecedented breathability that allows air to circulate through the pillow and keep you cool all night long!

The Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow is a top rated pillow on Amazon, with over 7000 Amazon reviews. It comes available in three sizes and currently is available for special sale prices – standard, regularly $119.00, on sale for $49.99, queen regularly $149.00, on sale for $59.99, and king regularly $197.00, on sale for $69.99.

Charisma Launches Marketing Campaign with Gabriel Aubry

Be still my beating heart, the vision of sexiness that is Gabriel Aubry is featured in a very hot new campaign (and I mean HOT) for Charisma, maker of luxury bath and bedding. The 2010 campaign, which comes in two versions features Gabriel in bed and Gabriel in a towel and has the tag line “Gabriel Aubry has Charisma” and boy does he ever (excuse me while I burn these images into my brain for the next hour or so)

wait, give me five more minutes………..wait…five more.OK, I’m back. My favorite out of the two ads is of course with the bedding. Charisma has made a vision so inviting, I swear I’m seconds away from trying to climb through my computer screen and into bed with Gabriel. And after staring at the ad for so long, I can’t help but notice the delicate tonal floral design on the pillowcases and comforter. Who is Charisma, you ask? Charisma represents understated elegance with a focus on details and quality workmanship. Charisma products include fashion bedding, sheets, blankets, coverlets, rugs, bath accessories and towels and are available at Bloomingdale’s.

The Fall 2010 campaign, which was shot by photographer Tony Duran in Los Angeles, will debut in October issues of shelter and lifestyle magazines such as Elle Décor, House Beautiful, Traditional Home, Gotham and will also be featured online. Gabriel will also be be making personal appearances on behalf of Charisma in Bloomingdale’s in New York and Los Angeles. Until then, feast your eyes on the behind the scenes of the shoot (oh lord there I go again). On a separate note – isn’t Gabriel giving you Alexander Skarsgard fever in the video? Gabriel on True Blood one day perhaps? His voice also surprised me though, but his Canadian french accent is adorable.

Gabriel Aubry commented, “Charisma products have an understated elegance and luxuriousness to them, which is noticeable just by looking at the detailing of the towels and bedding. Since we spend so much of our lives in the bedroom, Charisma can add luxury and comfort to your everyday life.”

Dari Marder, Chief Marketing Officer, Charisma, commented, “We had such a great reaction to our Jason Lewis campaign last year that we knew we had to follow it up with a sexy, handsome man. Gabriel was completely charming and knew just what to do in the bedroom as soon as he hit the Charisma sheets. It was an easy shoot to say the least.”
Unfortunately people only remember Gabriel as Halle Berry’s former significant other but he is frequently listed on People Magazine’s Most Beautiful List (no surprise) and has modeled for Hugo Boss, Louis Vuitton, Tommy Hilfiger, Gianni Versace, Calvin Klein, DKNY, Valentino, GAP, Nautica, and more.
