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.

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!

Back to the Beauty bit!  

Honey has incredible skin and hair care properties. It has been revered throughout history for this purpose – the Egyptians used it in mummification (the ultimate anti-ager!), Cleopatra bathed in it, the Romans used it on battle wounds, whilst the wife of the Roman Emperor Nero, Poppea, formulated a honey based moisturiser. Queen Anne of England used it to condition her hair and Madame du Barry (famous for her beauty and for being Louis XV’s final mistress) may have been the first to make a homemade honey face-mask, a practice continued by modern starlets such as Scarlett Johansson who attributes her healthy glow to a manuka mask (just honey, nothing added).

This remarkable substance is rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It soothes and moisturises and is a humectant meaning that it draws moisture towards it and seals it onto the skin, prolonging its moisturising effect. It contains phytochemicals which make it antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory. It is also self preserving (due to its anti-microbial constituents, low PH, moisture content and water activity) as famously illustrated by archeologists who found 2,000 year-old jars of honey in Egyptian tombs!

Honey can be applied neat to the skin or combined with other complementary ingredients. We’re sure you will be keen to get some on your skin – so here are some ideas for a homemade face mask using honey and things you might find in the fridge:

* Make a simple Cleopatra-esque mask using plain yogurt/cream (we find milk doesn’t stay on so well!) and honey to moisturise and soothe (recommended for sensitive skin)

* Mix honey, oats (best if ground first to avoid clumpiness) and a little lemon/lime (rich in AHAs and vitamin C) to moisturise and exfoliate

* Blend some enzyme-rich papaya (also contains vitamin A) and honey together to brighten and banish dead skin cells without scrubbing

 TAHDAAAHHH!!!! You’ll be looking like a goddess in no time!

Happy Bee-autifying!!
