To sleep: perchance to dream (with NEOM!)

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 9 - 2013

When your head hits the pillow, are you out like a light?  Or do you gaze at your alarm clock slowly ticking over… counting down the minutes until it’s time to wake up?

I’m a bit of an insomniac.  Well hang on… that’s a pretty catch-all term isn’t it, often misused.  I don’t mind admitting a “just one more go at Candy Crush” addiction that can often keep my brain overly-stimulated into the wee hours.  Infact, Mr. L reckons that if we banned our iPhones from the bedroom, we’d average at least an extra hour’s sleep a night.  Hardly “proper” insomnia but it’s a cycle that can be hard to break nonetheless.

But it’s not just my late-night Daily Mail app addiction that I have to contend with.  I do find it a lot harder to “switch off” now that I’m older…. there are just so many things to think about aren’t there?  Worries… plans… hopes and fears… it’s a wonder we sleep at all.

For the month of September, NEOM Luxury Organics have launched the Neom Perfect Night’s Sleep campaign in association with The Sleep Council. Alongside the Neom Perfect Night’s Sleep 3-Step Guide, the brand have also introduced the Neom Perfect Night’s Sleep Kit (£55.00).

The kit includes three items from NEOM’s lavender, sweet basil and jasmine-enriched Tranquility range:

NEOM Tranquillity Candle (380g, £39.50)
NEOM Tranquillity Bath Foam (200ml, £20.00)
NEOM Tranquillity Mist (100ml, £15.00)

The usual price of these three items would total £74.50, but bought together as part of the Perfect Night’s Sleep Kit, will save almost £20, costing only £55.00.

In addition to this, the organic brand are running a wonderful competition that I want to give you a heads up about…

To celebrate the launch of the Perfect Night’s Sleep Campaign, NEOM Luxury Organics has teamed up with like-minded premium companies such as Lifehouse Spa & Hotel, Abaca, The Wool Room, The Fine Cotton Company, Hush, Amelia Freer Nutritionist and Pukka to launch a very special competition to win a deluxe package worth over £2,000, all geared towards giving you the Perfect Night’s Sleep.

    Depression keeping me awake at the moment. I usually get to sleep about 2am and then wonder why I’m tired in the morning for work – I hate and detest mornings with a passion, always have. I use the Avon Sleeptherapy range as Neom’s a bit out of my league but they’re pretty good considering they’re so cheap. I also had a stay at a Crowne Plaza in London last week so got the ‘This Works’ pillow spray and roll-on from there. Badger’s sleep balm is rather lovely too. Rather than candles, I’ve switched over to the Bliss Aroma diffuser – I’d already got about 50 different aromatherapy/fragrance oils in my collection so as it gets later, I concoct a mish-mash of wonderful smells & water in there to try and wind me down. That really is the best gadget I’ve ever bought, I’d be lost without it. Got some Ambergris, patchouli, bergamot and juniper berry on the go at the moment, mmmmm!

    • Ahh I would love an aroma diffuser, I have so many oils but am wary of using an oil burner nowadays after one literally blew up a couple of feet from my face.

      I’ve been looking at the Aromatherapy Associates one, I’ll look at the Bliss one too. Thanks for the tips xx

    Our wedding! We get married this Saturday and although it’s a small, low-key wedding and everything is pretty much in hand, if I wake in the middle of the night (thank you next-doors swimming pool pump) my head is immediately full of obsessive catastrophising thoughts about inane details about the wedding that I am unable to shut off. The finance and I have both said we’ll be quite glad when it’s over!

    • Oh wow, good luck and congratulations for Saturday – I’m not surprised you’re a little restless!! If I’ve got one piece of advice it would be to NOT stress the little things, seriously… you won’t even remember them within days of the wedding!

      Have a lovely time! x

  3. Brilliant. I’m a bit obsessed with a good night’s sleep! I love scented candles and pillow mist and the like – and my experiences with Neom so far have been very good. I’ll try anything for a good night’s sleep – except quitting coffee and kitkats right before bed. x

    • Oh I know! Since I bought one of those tassimo things I’m like “Wahey! Iced lattes at 10 o’ clock!” Muppet.

      Mr L doesn’t like having a candle lit before bedtime because of the smell when you extinguish it but I love the Elemis Quiet Mind Room Mist and I spray it in Leila’s room too while she’s having her bath. x
