For example, it’s a good idea to take more than one beach towel with you on your travels. After all, if you’re making frequent trips to the beach or swimming pool, your towel may not have time to dry. As long as you’ve got a spare handy, you won’t have to use a damp towel. The same applies to your swimwear. By taking a few sets, you can be certain you’ll always have a dry one to slip into. You might also benefit from taking a large beach bag on holiday with you. Remember, as well as your towel, you’ll need to carry other items like water bottles and sunscreen.

With snow over the Easter weekend, homes without power for days on end and temperatures dropping well below zero across large swathes of the country; it is fair to say this isn’t the kind of spring most of us had in mind when the Vernal Equinox came round a few weeks ago. Moreover, forecasters are saying that this bout of wintery weather is not just a few days of arctic blasting – it is expected to be with us for at least a few weeks. Lovely. One of the most irksome aspects of this is that it has come at the time of year when you have already stored away all of your winter clothes and bedding. However, with temperatures predicted to get as low as -10C in some parts of the UK this April, it is a sure bet that you will need to dig out all of your cold weather gear and adopt a winter mindset for the time being. With this in mind, we here at Christy thought we would provide you with some handy hints that will help you to stay nice and cosy whilst the weather is blowing a gale outside. Treat yourself to a Nice Hot Bath or Shower when you get in from Work It is very common to feel tired, cold and more than a little irritated after a commute home in wintry weather. Treating yourself to a nice hot bath or shower is arguably the best way to deal with this as the hot water will feel lovely on your skin, reinvigorating you and relaxing you in equal measure. Moreover, drying yourself off with one of our lovely soft towels will make you help you to feel far more relaxed and at peace with the world. Wrap up Warm and Do Something Cosy Once you have finished your bath or shower and dried yourself off nicely; put on your pyjamas, wrap yourself up in one of our beautifully luxurious bath robes and do something which will make you feel cosy. Certainly, sitting next to the fire with a good book or lying down on the sofa watching your favourite TV programme will soon make you forget all about the falling temperatures outside. Invest in High Quality Bedding Your summer duvets and sheets will not help you to sleep at night when the temperatures outside are colder than those in Greenland! To be sure, trying to get warm in a cold bed is never an enjoyable experience. Purchasing high quality bed linen that has been specifically designed to deal with cold temperatures is the best way to mitigate any such concerns as it will ensure you feel suitably warm and comfortable all night. Without doubt, taking heed of these hints will help you to stay cosy and content over the coming weeks.

Autumn first arrives with the morning. One day we feel the chill in the air as we lock our front door and turn in surprise to see the first hint of frost on the car wind shield We quickly fasten the top button on our jacket and climb into the driver’s seat, for the workday doesn’t pause for a bit of frost. But perhaps that is the moment when we first start dreaming of a winter holiday in some exotic climate. Our final series in the Autumn/Winter Collection was inspired by the romance of the eastern Spice Trail and the longing for a hazy sun in a bleached white sky. Imagine tents billowing softly in the hot wind, feasting on flat bread and dates while sitting cross-legged on rugs, or watching the long, spidery shadows of the caravan cross the desert floor. A lovely picture indeed. But I think it only fair that you also consider water rations, sunburned lips, the distinctive odour of camel and sand in EVERYTHING. As much as an exotic holiday may beckon, it might be better to bring the romance home where you can enjoy the benefit of sleeping soundly in your own bed. Our stunning Byzantine Bed Linen captures the essence of the ancient east using the colours of baked bricks, white plaster and blue mosaic tile.
A classic paisley is carried on a staggered stripe that ebbs and flows like drifting sand. You can easily imagine yourself in an airy, crenellated tower overlooking the bustling village bazaar where reams of hand dyed fabrics are bought and sold, and where you might find our Nina Bed Linen. A bold ikat pattern and lush red ribbon trim embody the more adventurous flavours of the market towns, like cumin and cedar and lamp smoke.
And for the desert oasis of your dreams, our Petra Bed Linen combines a soft paisley and rich red in a sateen finish that will make you feel as though you have your own private mirage.
With the Spice Trail Collection you’ll have the romance of the mystic east in your own familiar room and you just might forget entirely that there’s such a thing as frost. At least until the next morning.
