VLOG: PFW Apartment

November 7, 2014

So here’s a little vlog on what I got up to in Paris with Tamara, Shini, Sarah & Noor. I some how overlooked the annotation next to Tamara and put the wrong blog name, but she is definitely from The Glam and Glitter 😀

I didn’t film it all but you can see the fun little tour and lunch we had with My Little Box Paris, as well as a little wondering around the city! I shot this vlog with a Panasonic HC- V550 that I was sent to try out, it was fairly easy to use, I realised I hadn’t formatted the memory card for the device, as it seemed to need a certain format, so be sure to try it out a few times before filming a load of content. At £284.99 its not bad for a camcorder, the quality is awesome, its shape makes it super easy to move around and capture from and back footage. It’s definitely one to try for all of you budding film makers/vloggers :)

Good night’s sleep

November 5, 2014


Quick check-list..

  • Checked into the Charlotte Street Hotel (literally one of my favourite hotels in the world) ✓
  • Opened up my customised ‘chill’ kit featuring a copy of  The Great Gatsby, a box of Black Grapes and the latest Conde Nast Traveller..amongst other things ✓
  • Ripped open the pack on my bed that contained a brand new Silent Night X Febreze Lavender pillow ✓
  • Sprayed all the Febreze scents around the room and bed ✓✓ (double check, cause i’m pretty sure you’re only supposed to spray one fragrance but I mixed a couple of them together..whaat? They all smelt so good)
  • Lock my laptop away and slip into … a onesie 
  • Pole vault my way onto the bed and under the duvet without an actual pole vault ✓

So once my check list had been completed and room service had arrived, I sat in bed thinking ‘gee life’s pretty awesome, right now’. Febreze emailed me a few weeks earlier asking if I wanted to stay the night at the CSH and really enjoy a good nights sleep. For someone who doesn’t get much sleep, my immediate response was, sure; I just didn’t fully see how it would be different to any other night..




When I arrived, they had a few of my favourite things along with a few new things from their Sleep Serenity range. The products aim to help us sleep better, so in an aid to ensure the best night possible for us all, they worked with the National Sleep Foundation to come up with a few helpful tips on how to improve our bedime routine and in turn our sleep..

  1. Establish Regular Bedtime

Try to go to sleep and wake up at the same time each day, even on the weekends. Trying to catch up on sleep on the weekends can actually have a reverse effect on the body, and make you feel more tired when Monday rolls around.

  1. Prepare for Bedtime

Establish a relaxing bedtime routine during which you unwind and prepare your body for sleep. Do something calming, such as listening to music or reading.

  1. Create a Sleep Haven

Create an environment that promotes sleep—one that is quiet, dark, cool, and comfortable. Fresh sheets, cool pillows, and blackout shades seem to do the trick.

  1. Fill the Air

Incorporate fragrance into your bedtime routine to help relax and unwind. The Febreze Sleep Serenity collection’s calming scents in Quiet Jasmine, Moonlit Lavender, and Warm Milk & Honey help create a soothing bedtime atmosphere. They eliminate odors and fill the bedroom with long-lasting, relaxing scents that don’t overpower the room.

Available in Febreze Bedside Diffuser, Febreze Bedroom Mist, Febreze Bedroom Diffuser, and Febreze Bedding Refresher, the variety of options allows you to find the perfect scent-enhancing solution that will create a more-peaceful and relaxing bedtime atmosphere.

      5.  Go Gadget Free

The stimuli of electronics will keep your mind active and prevent your body from switching to sleep mode, and the light emitted from screens might be too stimulating. Power down and try reading instead.

On that note, good night!
