Luxurious sleeping 06/12/2016
It's not for nothing that Cleopatra was known to revel in luxury - milk and honey baths were probably mandatory before slipping into bed with the unrivalled luxury of Egyptian cotton sheets.
I bought the Egyption Cotton Duvet Cover set on Black Friday and I was super excited when it arrived - my best gifts are always the ones from me to me.
The quality is excellent - the duvet and the matching fitted sheet feel like silk against your skin! It takes a little long to iron and seems much larger than a queen size. The cover is cool against theskin and had a few stubborn creases after the first night's sleep, which could not be flattened by smoothing out the surface, as one usually does with bed coverings. It fits the bed very well and makes the bedroom look cool and inviting.
The only gripe I have is that when I opened my duvet pack, I noticed that the security tag was still in place. I had already committed myself to changing my bedding and could not put the cover back in the bag to return it. Needless to say, I struggled to cut the tag - my husband had to eventually help by using super heavy duty pliers! The entry point of the tag also left a little hole in the duvet cover - we were careful not to damage the cover when cutting the tag.
All-in-all, this was a really great buy - I will definitely purchase Egyptian cotton set when the budget allows.
But all in all, this was an excellent buy - one that I hope to replicate when the budget allows.
