How to Sleep in this Heatwave

The weather has been dead warm for the whole of this week, and I hear it is going to get even warmer in the next few days. Saturday is predicted to be the hottest spring day ever as temperature is predicted to hit 32.2C (89.96F), so be ready to roast!

I like it warm, but not too warm. I struggle with extreme temperatures, and this is now extreme. There is no air at all, it is so still and so hot! I feel like hibernating.

Getting decent sleep is almost impossible more. With all the many issues going on around the world and in our personal lives, we have enough on our plate to keep us up at night already. Just look at what happened in Manchester some days ago, with the suicide bombing that killed over 25 people, and injured more than 50.

Money issues is another thing that could keep us up all night. There is nothing else than can chase sleep faster than red bills that won’t stop coming. Thankfully, there are now options to help sort out our finance worries, so we don’t have to lose sleep over them. Companies like Northcash Loans can help when the going gets tough. But this heatwave has just added to the list of things that could really affect our sleep. But the good news is that I have found a way to tackle it. Here are some tips that might you get some decent sleep while the heatwave is at its peak –


Leave your blinds/curtains shut

Leave your blinds/curtains shut during the day will help keep the bedroom cool. Most experts agree with the ideal bedroom temperature being between 15 and 19 degrees. Anything over 23 degrees or below 12 degrees is likely to disturb your sleep.


Put your Pyjamas in the Fridge

Put your pyjamas in a bag and place in the fridge an hour before bedtime. This will help you stay cool.


Take a Cool Shower

Taking a cool shower just before bedtime to keep you cool too.


Stay Thankful

Regardless of whatever issues you may have, be it family or finance issue, there is someone out there wishing they had a bed to sleep on, so stay thankful. Think of all you are thankful for before bedtime, no matter how small. You can jot them down if you can as well. Being thankful improves our mental wellbeing, which helps us sleep better and feel fantastic.


Pillow Mist

A pillow/bedding mist could also help you snooze easy. A Lavender pillow mist works fine for me. Clean bedding and pyjamas also help me feel very snuggly.


Reduce caffeine and fluids

I stay away from caffeinated drinks 5 hours to. bedtime, and stop taking fluids an hour to bedtime, just so I sleep well without any interruptions. The last thing you need is to fall asleep, and then wake up to use the toilet, and struggle to go back because of the heat.

Stitched Up with this Season’s Embroidered Jeans

Every season, new trends emerge that take the fashion industry by storm, and sometimes they are trends that your clothing collection simply can’t live without. With new designs continuously coming into the spotlight, such as the recent choker craze, you might find that some new styles are here to stay. So, to ensure you don’t miss out on this season’s hype, you might want to update your clothing collection with the next big thing; embroidered jeans.



Denim is a classic element of any clothing collection; the staple material that can work across a number of garments including jeans, jackets and shorts. Jeans in particular have certainly seen their fair share of transformation over the years, including boyfriend jeans and flares, and it’s safe to say that each clothing collection has its own core set of denim to offer. With all things retro coming back into fashion, it’s no surprise that this season’s denim features embroidery reminiscent of the 90s. Thankfully though, this time around embroidered jeans are a little more sophisticated.

New approach to embroidery

What was once cool, then not-so-much, is well and truly back in fashion. Embroidered clothing has taken on a new approach; ditching the butterflies and stars of years gone by, and instead favouring elaborate and detailed patterns such as floral.

Adding character to your clothing collection, embroidery may quickly become the new essential thanks to its creative take on fashion. Whether it’s bold or subtle, embroidery can be the focal point of any ensemble. So, where do embroidered jeans fit into your clothing collection?



Artistic take on fashion

As with everything in the fashion industry, there are numerous differences within the embroidered jeans trend. It’s not one-size-fits-all, with so many different designs to choose from. Thanks to this, you can include the best wholesale denim pieces that fits in seamlessly with your existing collection.

You can choose from a number of styles to add to your denim line; one of the more popular designs is the traditional floral pattern. Intricate and perfect for the upcoming summer, you can inject the perfect amount of seasonality into your collection. Working well across a number of looks, you can take embroidered jeans from day-to-night; cementing their status as a versatile addition to any collection.

However, the creativity doesn’t stop at a floral pattern; there are so many different designs to ensure your collection is complete. Other embroidered patches can give a more rock and roll appearance, with a combination of motifs, slogans and rips to promote a more tomboy finish to your collection. Offering more of a punk rock look, there is the perfect denim to match whatever your current collection includes.

How to wear it

Styling your embroidered jeans couldn’t be easier. Denim offers such versatile opportunities that you can pair this trend with any number of other looks. Bardot top and sandals for daytime chic, or a laced up bodysuit and heels for a night on the town. Likewise, keep it plain with a t-shirt and trainers and let the jeans do all the talking!


Are you a fan of embroidered jeans?

Father’s Day – The Gift of Game

Father’s Day is almost here for us in the UK (Sunday June 18), and that means more gifts buying. I am yet to get Father’s Day gifts sorted, but I am on it. I should hopefully get the gifts in the next few days. I have been snooping around on various blogs and websites for gift ideas, so I have a few gifts in mind already, but I am still undecided.

I am also undecided on how we should spend the day. When it comes to Father’s Day or Mother’s Day, I prefer the gift of an experience. We parents spend our money, time and energy caring for the little ones, so having a scheduled me time is usually the best gift ever!

I have a few ideas for a fun-filled Father’s Day, for the game lovers. These activities would make the day even more special. Here they are  –

Playing Golf


The golf lovers would enjoy a good game of golf to unwind. Personalised golf balls and accessories would also be great unique gifts to accompany a good game of golf for the golf crazy daddies.

Bingo Games

For the Bingo playing fans, an afternoon playing Bingo games could be a fab gift idea. There are many different online games around these days, which means there is surely a game to tickle the fancy on an online game fanatic. William Hill review from Boomtown Bingo explains some promotions and sign up offers currently running on the William Hill website, so do have a look for more information.


Watch a Football Match

Tickets to go watch their favourite team play footy is another great gift idea for Father’s Day. Many men are football freaks! The gift of football would definitely put a smile on the faces of many fathers.

Are you sorted for Father’s Day? Or you still undecided like me?
