Since the start of this year I have been carefully and patient purchasing new bedding for myself. And this weekend I finally has all the necessary parts to give my bed a fresh start to Spring! First off was an intense steam-cleaning of every side of the mattress, the headboard and the rest of the bed using my H20x5- 5 in 1 Steam Cleaner. It was a laborious task!
Anyhooo, in Debenhams this Duvet by Fogarty was on sale. 70% off it’s £80 RRP. It is the 12 tog Soft & Warm duvet with “supremely soft hollowfibre filling encased in a luxury microfibre cover.” It is non-allergenic, polyester lining and filling alongside being machine washable. At £24 I was very pleased with this selection.
The only slight drawback was that is was not as thick and plush as I had imagined. There’s definitely a big difference between a 12 tog and a heavenly plush 13.5 tog duvet that we have elsewhere in the house. Oh well!
As I have sensitive skin this M & S Home anti-allergy mattress protector (£25) is vital. The cover is 100% cotton with a 100% polyester dacron® allerban® filling. Although it states filling it is not noticeable-very thin. Then we have the bedsheets. This perfect pastel pink shade was from Dunelm and a delightful combed cotton. It was £24.99 and surprising it acme with of course the fitted bed sheet, a flat sheet and pillowcase! I had simply done a click and collect on it because I loved the colour and the fact that it was combed cotton the extras were a nice surprise. The downside to the fitted sheet is that the seams at the corner do not run vertically down they are bizarrely diagonal. On too more prettier items! The Laura Ashley matching ” Couture Rose” printed duvet cover and pillowcase (sold separately) are 100% cotton, 200 thread count. The cover retailed at £60, the case £22. But of course I bought these pretties in the January sale at 40% off: £36 and £13.20. 🙂
This is the opposite side of the floral duvet, both sides have a slight sheen.All together! It is very girly-like me! 🙂
