Calidad Home time for beauty sleep

Upgrade your beauty sleep with a luxury silk pillowcase from Calidad Home and not only will you wake up feeling refreshed, but your skin and hair will also look fab.

Sleep is very important as not only does it recharge our body and mind from restoring our immune, nervous, skeletal and muscular systems which helps our mood, memory and cognitive function. However did you know that sleeping on the right kind of pillowcase can also make a big difference from comfort, skin and hair?

I was kindly given a Calidad Home pillowcase to test and review.

Calidad Home

Michelle is the founder of Calidad Home.

For 12 months before selling silk pillowcases she researched into what silk was all about, where it’s sourced, how it’s made, and it’s benefits.

Her products are 100% A grade, and uses long strand 22 momme Mulberry Silk which is the silk you can get. Momme, is the gauge by which silk is measured. Silk cannot be measured the same as cotton, by thread count because the thread is so fine it has to be woven very finely and then the weight per metre determines the momme. The best weight for silk pillowcases is 22.

Sleep is an essential function that allows our body and mind to recharge as when we sleep our body heads into an anabolic state which helps restore our immune, nervous, skeletal and muscular systems which helps with our mood, memory and cognitive function.

Bath Fairy time to soak, relax and rejuvenate

Having a bath is the most relaxing way to wash your troubles away but what makes a bath even more fun is watching and listening to a bath bomb fizz away.

What are bath bombs? Bath bombs are a little like bubble bath but with a fizz. They can be bought in a variety of shapes and are made from baking soda generally and citric acid and a mix of essential oils to impart a particular scent and feel. The beauty though about bath bombs is that when dissolving within the bath it releases citric acid which fizzes up and helps loosen damaged layers of skin. Plus the oils used in bath bombs also tend to be super moisturizing and the hydrating oils will leave your skin feeling soft and supple.

The Bath Fairy bath bombs are a must though if like me you love a relaxing time and fun in the bath as their bath bombs are unique, fun and quirky plus last longer than other leading brands. I was kindly gifted a few bath bombs courtesy of the founder of The Bath Fairy.

This past year with the pandemic of Covid19 it has caused us all to suffer with anxiety it has resulted in me suffering with insomnia, the inability to get to sleep at night. However sleep can be affected not just because of anxiety but stress, depression, hot flushes, jet lag, health conditions, medication or even the amount of coffee you drink.

Sleep though is a very essential function that allows our body and mind to recharge, leaving us all refreshed and alert when we wake up. Healthy sleep also helps the body remain healthy and stave off diseases. Without enough sleep, the brain cannot function properly. This can the impact our abilities to concentrate, think clearly, and process memories. Most adults require between seven hours of sleep. Children and teenagers need substantially more sleep, particularly if they are younger than five years of age.

To help get to sleep there are a variety of ways to help tackle issues such as insomnia and that is by eating healthier, exercise and more importantly having the right mattress, pillows and covers to provide comfort.

Toshiba Microwave ML-EM23P(SS) save time

There are a variety of microwaves on the market but for me personally Toshiba sell some of the smartest looking microwaves which are affordable. What is a microwave good for though you might ask? Well a microwave is like an oven but a lot smaller and faster. Within a microwave you can defrost food, cook a variety of dishes within it, and saves you time.

Microwaves were first introduced as a device to save time. However since then apart from throwing in a microwaveable meal bought from a supermarket microwaves have highly evolved. Now within microwaves you can cook practically anything such as a turkey.

Courtesy of Toshiba I was given a microwave on a gifted basis to show me how microwaves have evolved and how much time you can save.

Toshiba brand

Toshiba was founded back in 1939 in Japan which was a merge of two companies, Shibaura Seisakusho (Shibaura Engineering Works) and Tokyo Denki (Tokyo Electric). Since merging this multinational conglomerate organisation has become one of the worlds leading brands in electrics. They supply a range of diversified products and services which range from power, elevators, escalators, kitchen electronics, home electronics, lighting and so much more. However they are mostly known though for their laptops, other home appliances and medical equipment.

Convenient cooking at home

Microwaves are a great alternate to an oven as they make cooking that much quicker, be it a pre-made microwave meal or to cook a homemade dish. No matter what you cook in a microwave the time it would cook in an oven is highly reduced.
