Le Fil Rouge linen blanket (purchased w/credits at Garmentory) & Dagny
So, I aimed to get my super-comprehensive linen post up today with mini-reviews, thoughts, and links to all my linen items, BUT, I’d really like to wait for my linen Amour Vert tee to arrive so I can compare it to my Zady & Everlane ones before I do the final post. I’ll have it ready by Monday, I promise. In the meantime, please enjoy Dagny snuggling with my linen blanket. Also, you can check Instagram later today for a sneak peek of my favorite linen piece 😉
Just a quick note on the linen blanket though – I ordered it with credits from Garmentory a while ago because I’ve been intrigued by linen blankets/bedding since we had a bit of a discussion here on Rough Linen following my Coyuchi post. I always keep a blanket on the sofa in my office for when I read on the weekends, and of course, for Dagny to snuggle in (she takes over everything), and it was getting too hot for cashmere. The blanket is so nicely made, and heavy, but not hot. It’s thick, and soft (could be softer), and came with instructions to wash it and dry it in the dryer for a few minutes to help soften it up even more. I haven’t done that yet, but I will.
I have come to appreciate how sturdy and truly indestructible linen is, and envision using this for many many years as a blanket on the sofa, on a pool chair, on the grass for a picnic….you name it. Now I’m definitely convinced I’d like to try a linen duvet. How to get my husband on board is a different story altogether!
On to the random-ness:
I’ve never had a facial. Or had anything done to my face at all besides the occasional threading/waxing. And generally, I feel like I have pretty healthy skin, no problems at all, except some minor spots, and increasingly, my sagging neck-skin-area, which is hereditary. But I know it’s time to take even BETTER care of my skin, and have been looking into getting facials, microdermabrasion, and even micro planing. I have NO IDEA WHERE TO START.
I actually found a spa rather close that uses only organic/natural products, so I’ll start there and get a consultation first, but I wonder what you do? Do you get facials? How often? What else do you have done?
Happy Friday 🙂
