The Duvet Diaries – The Charlotte St. London

KMT_5KMT_2 KMT_3 KMT_6 KMT_1 KMT_4I’ve made it no secret that I have an ongoing battle with sleep. I love the feeling of drifting off, losing yourself and succumbing to the impending slumber. But for me that feeling doesn’t come easy and I have to ensure I’ve truly relaxed and let go of the day’s stresses in order to give sleep my best shot.

So when I was invited down to spend a “Luxury Nights Sleep” courtesy of Kiss the moon at The Charlotte St. Hotel, it was like all my prayers had been answered, so I packed my overnight bag and made the familiar journey down south. Upon arrival I was whisked into what can only be described as the cosiest snug I’ve ever had the pleasure of frequenting full of delicious canapés, champagne and the scent of all my favourite essential oils. Then Jo & Anna,  The wonderful women behind the brand gave us an in-depth run through of the products and values of Kiss the moon.

Kiss the moon is the only brand of its kind specialising in night time beauty products bursting with the best quality essential oils to ensure you slip of to the land of nod in a haze of camomile, ylang ylang and jasmine. We took a very brief Q&A to find out which bath oil and facial oil would suit our needs and then whisked off to our suites (yes suites, pinch me!) that had been carefully selected to our personal style

As I entered my room those same scents greeted me and after some much deserved room service I ran myself a hot bath using the ‘Love After Dark’ Bath oil smothering it across my shoulders and chest (because it doubles as a body oil) and sunk into the tub in my dreamy hotel room. The journey from Bath to bed was done in a haze of sleepiness but ensuring I used my ‘Calm After Dark’ facial oil before I snuggled into the crisp sheets of my huge bed for the night.

Looking out over the rooftops of London I drifted off without a care in the world.

I awoke at 5am feeling refreshed and reengergized ready  for the day a head. The combination of products and luxury stay cation meant I awoke with my mind in overdrive, just how I like it. bursting with ideas like this right here! Following the wonderful nights sleep with the wonderful Kiss the moon team at the wonderful Charlotte St. Hotel, I’d like to introduce you to the newest section of my blog; The Duvet Diaries which will include the best products, beds, hotels and tricks for those who struggle with slumber.

I loved everything about the Kiss the moon products from the quality oils to the brand values and they haven’t just been a hit with me either. I felt so bad that Ali couldn’t accompany me that before he returned home on Friday, I ran him his own Kiss the moon luxury bath which he throughrally enjoyed. I know some family members who are going to be very pleased to find something from Kiss the moons gift collection in their stocking this Christmas too.

      They are a relaxation tool which help with creating the perfect atmosphere for sleep. There are obviously conditions and disorders which out right prevent you from sleeping but those aside its a great product to incorporate to bedtimes. x
