Would’t it be amazing if there was a place where all of the worlds comfiest pyjamas went to live and you could just browse between the 1D onesies and sleek silkie numbers. Well, there really is… and its called The Pyjama store!

Snoochie Boochies was lucky enough to be invited to a very special event for the store in the heart of swanky Mayfair. We found bed wear from the extravagant to the affordable, from the slinky to the sophisticated and basically everything for men, women and children.

The Pyjama Store was born in 2010 due to the frustrations of poor online choices for good quality men’s pyjamas and robes it initially housed four brands and within 18 months grew to incorporate women’s wear with five more women’s specialist designers. By 2013, The Pyjama Store had amassed a great selection of cool, younger brands with fresh and exciting new designs including Cyberjammies and by popular request, kid’s jim jams!

So we thought, we’d run through three of our top pickings from The Pyjama store and give you a flavour for what it has to offer:

The Charlie McLeod Nordic Zippy

Prices starting at £79.00

This is where guys become honorary members of 1 Direction who love chilling out in nothing more than a onesie. The superstar of comfort is made of super soft cotton rich fabric which makes you feel like you want to curl up and just take life easy. Throw into the mix our very generous sizing and you could lounge all day.

The soft feeling hood has natural coloured drawcords which match those great zip pullers, the front pouch pocket has an internal phone/mp3 pocket with a small hole so your wires can be fed up the inside of the Zippy, and the cuffs have the all important thumb holes.

After a day on the slopes, work or studying you only need to reach for one item of clothing. The Nordic Zippy with its bright white print, this is the real deal. Perfect for lounging, perfect for our modern life.

The MaybeBlu Collection

Currently on sale starting at £18.00

As featured in Star magazine’s Lust List! For those who prefer a classic yet sexy look, this night dress offers a chic alternative to the pyjamas, though still giving you the comfort of 100% cotton, while allowing you to reveal your feminine side.

Turquaz Kids Pyjamas

Prices starting at £22.00

Exclusive to The Pyjama Store, a range of sleepwear for children with gorgeous designs which look super whether your little ones are playing, resting or sleeping. A peaceful night’s sleep is (almost) guaranteed!

What there’s more? 

Now this event wasn’t all about Pyjamas, as a special treat the The Dollz team was on hand to do amazing make overs and Game of Thrones hair stylist Timothy David was on hand to give some style advice and add some ‘ju-ju’ to our hair to make us look FABULOUS!

So we thought we’d end on his three words of advice for beautiful fabulous hair…

1) Make sure you have good hair products which are correctly diagnosed by a stylist

2) Always go to a good hair stylist

3) Regular visits to the hair dresser are a must!

Have a great weekend Snoochers and get yourself looking glam for day and night time!

A couple of streets away from Earls Court station, you’ll find a door with an old fashioned lamp above it and a queue of twenty-somethings standing outside. No, its not the entrance to a 1 Direction secret gig (although the twenty-somethings would certainly have one up on the tween population if that was the case!) its the entrance to one of London’s very cool themed restaurants.

It’s called Evans and Peel and plays out as a basement speakeasy where discretion is the name of the game on all accounts. Once  you manage to find the place, buzz the bell and finally get through to someone on the other end, you are summoned downstairs in the groups you have come with, to face a man dressed up, as per the era, ready to interrogate you about “your case.” Ours was the search for the KFC Colonels secret recipe (as you do) and we had a long and rather amusing grilling about the hunt for fast food chicken, Big Macs and the odd Burger King establishment. Once satisfied that your case is ‘legit’ you are let in to the secret world of Evans and Peel.

The great thing about this place is that it really does transport you to another world. The lighting is pretty much non existent, bar the candles at your (very small) tables. There is a no-standing policy, so although a tiny space, you do feel like you’ve got privacy to have your own discussions without some stranger in earshot or without you having to raise your voice too much to compete with an over crowded room – the atmosphere is just right. Screen shot 2013-04-12 at 10.05.32

Food isn’t the main priority at Evans and Peel – they focus much more on their drinks. One word of advice, be prepared to pay a pretty penny for the drinks as they don’t come cheap! Cocktails will set you back around £10-11. But what you do need to remember is that 1) they don’t scrimp on the alcohol, you really do get a kick from it! 2) You’re paying for the experience. As well as a few moonshine beers, we also tried their recommended drink of the day – The Whiskey Barrelled Martinez – which felt almost as if you were drinking syrup it was so heavy and takes a lot of guts for even the heaviest of drinkers to do anything beyond slowly sipping it.

We have to say that this is the biggest let down of the evening. The food is extremely expensive and not only does it lack in size, there really isn’t anything stand out either. Just to give you an example, four mini burgers and three sides known as the ‘whole caboodle’ will set you back £32, and realistically wouldn’t be a full meal for just one person, let alone the party of four we were with. Its a real shame, as there is the opportunity to do something really fun with the food here.

All in all, we’d recommend Evans and Peel as a great date night venue, perfect to impress with as its cool, kooky and definitely a lot of fun. This wouldn’t go on the cheap end of the price scale however, so if you do want to experience the evening properly, you’ll have to be prepared to pay around £50 per person for your night there, if not a bit more. But what you do get is something different, something hidden and an experience that definitely does break away from the norm, even if the role playing aspect kind of stops at the secret doorway. All in all, it’s good, but with a little more TLC, could be a lot better.

3 stars.
