Savvy Sleepers: Satin Pillow Cases

Happy Tuesday! :)

Dale from www.savvyspice.com has been a blog friend of mine for as long as I can remember, so when she asked me if I wanted to receive a Savvy Sleepers press pack from her line of satin pillowcases, I immediately said yes!

First off, here's a little something about Savvy Sleepers straight from Dale:

Being super busy with responsibilities of a full-time job, blogging, styling, and boy drama, I wasn't getting the best of sleep, tossing and turning all night, waking up with big 80's hair, my aunt Jean, who is a hair stylist said, "You should really sleep on a satin pillowcase instead of cotton. It's healthier for your hair and will keep it from breaking. Your hair will be smoother in the morning."

Dale researched satin and she created a sample case with a hidden patent-pending 4" x 4" pocket that is highly efficient for sleeping soundly through the night. She also tested nearly 200 samples of satin against her skin and hair, and she found the most luxurious blend in the richest shades. :)

I love the personalized feel of Savvy Sleepers' packaging -- the cute sticker logo is a nice touch and how cute are those candies?!

You can see that Dale and the whole Savvy Sleepers team really put a lot of care into their products -- look how nice their box is!
I love it!

I'm excited to show you guys my new pillowcase! :)

So, let's get on with it...

Their pillowcases come in three different colors: White (Divinity), Neutral (Nappucino), and Black (Night Knight).

I chose the color Nappucino because it's the one closest to the shade of my pillowcases. :)

Everything about this press pack is just so professional -- big cheers for Dale and Savvy Sleepers!

Here is my pillowcase:

Aaaahhh, just looking at the picture is making me want to sleep, haha! ;)

Pure neutral satin pillowcase smoother for hair & skin.

It's really comfortable and I love it!
I never thought the material of your pillowcase matters, but getting my Savvy Sleepers pillowcase totally changed that!

I sleep better and I wake up better...
I don't wake up with crazy hair or weird marks on my face anymore -- actually, now that I really think about it, I've been waking up to good hair days for the past few weeks... so amazing!

A closer look...

These pillowcases also have a bonus secret pocket... yup, you read that right -- a secret pocket!!!

A secret pocket for Chapstick, mint, or whatever else you need -- so clever!

Price: $36

It's a bit more pricey than your average pillowcase, but it's definitely worth it!
I've been regularly washing my pillowcase and it still looks the same as it did on the day I opened my package.
It is of high quality and it does wonders. :)

Dale made a very special coupon code for you, my lovely readers... get your very own Savvy Sleepers pillowcase for 15% off!

Use the code: Mimi
Valid until November 15th

Thanks so much to Dale and Savvy Sleepers for sending me this awesome pillowcase -- you have made sleeping all the more heavenly!

SinfulColors: Crystal Crushes and Leather Luxe

Happy Sunday/ Monday!

I know, I know, I've been missing in action for quite some time now, sorry!
I'm currently super busy with school and work, but I am trying my hardest to squeeze in some quality blogging time -- I miss you guys!!!

So for today, I want to share with all of you four gorgeous nail colors from SinfulColor's new collections: Crystal Crushes and Leather Luxe...

Ruby Mine and Face the Facets from Crystal Crushes/ My Turn and Leather Loose from Leather Luxe

Sparkle and glimmer this fall with SinfulColors™ shade collection: CRYSTAL CRUSHES.
It is a brilliant collection of gem-inspired nail polish shades with multifaceted 3D texture. Gorgeous matte colors flecked with a reflective pearl finish sure to dazzle your digits and make your heart skip a beat.

Tease, taunt, and turn heads this fall with the SinfulColors™ LEATHER LUXE collection.
A texture rich, trend-setting collection of stylish matte finish nail polish shades which are richly pigmented to provide a flirtatious way to flaunt your style.

Here are swatches of the four colors I received:

The Crystal Crushes collection features eight vivid shades sprinkled with an angel dust finish.

1. Ruby Mine -- Ravishing Red
I thought it was going to be a classic red, but it's actually more on the lighter side.
It's a fun color to use if you want to bring more of Summer into Fall. :)

2. Face the Facets -- Banana Bling
I don't have a good yellow nail polish, so I chose this one.
I really, really like it because it's not the usual "hurts your eyes" kind of yellow.

The colors from this collection are:

Got A Blush On You -- Flirty Fuchsia
Blue Persuasion -- Sapphire-ed Up!
Orange Crush -- Twinkling Tangerine
Treasure Chest -- Sea Worthy Bling
Emerald Envy -- A Glint of Green
Purple Gleam -- Glistening Lavender
Ruby Mine -- Ravishing Red
Face the Facets -- Banana Bling

Price: $2.99
Available exclusively at Walgreens for Fall 2013.

The Leather Luxe collection features seven weather-warming shades with leather-inspired finishes. The best part: they come in every popular base color, so there's a leather-icious look for everyone.

3. My Turn -- Stunning Steel
I've always wanted to get a gray shade of nail polish, so I decided to go for this one... I love the matte finish!

4. Leather Loose -- Safari Sinful Brown
I chose this for the same reason... I need a nice brown shade of nail polish.
I am really loving the glittery matte look of this particular shade.

The colors from this collection are:

Laced Up -- Enthralling Orange
Leather Loose -- Safari Sinful Brown
Whipped -- Beguiling Black
Get It On -- Bravely Berry
Strapped -- Scintillating Seafoam
My Turn -- Stunning Steel
Cold Leather -- Enchanting Night Sky

Price: $1.99
Available exclusively at Walgreens for Fall 2013.

I hope you are all having a happy last week of October!!! :D
