Fancy heading to New York for just £150?


If you love your shopping or like to sight see then New York is bound to be on your must visit list.

Well do we have good news for you….

Budget airline Norwegian has launched it’s new London to New York route with tickets costing from £150 one way! Which means more money for you to hit Fifth Avenue with.

Norwegian Airlines is the second largest airline in Scandinavia and operates flights to 126 destinations in Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and Thailand – plus Oslo-US routes.

This will be the first budget airline to launch a transatlantic flight and whilst tickets start FROM £150 (perfect if you’re planning to travel out-of-season) their full price tickets still work out to be a bit of a bargain. Flying to New York in September will cost around £420 (return), compared to £670 for BA, Virgin and Air France.

So girls get your bags packed and get ready to head Stateside for some serious shopping and a few cosmopolitans.

Sealy pillows and fascinating facts…






Sealy pillows and fascinating facts…

Renowned around the world for their fabulously comfy beds which are making everyone sleep more deeply from the White House in Washington to the Savoy in London, Sealy UK are now delighted to launch their new 2014 pillow range which is available in all major high street stores.

Everyone has their own personal preference for their ideal pillow to sleep on: some of us like one, two or even three … though latest research shows that over half of us (66%) sleep with 2 or more pillows. But whatever your preference Sealy, masters of the science of sleep, have a new range that ensures there is a perfect pillow for everyone. These new pillows, including a new revolutionary one which contains cooling gel, are guaranteed to send you into blissful slumber as soon as you lay your weary head on one. You will truly become a ‘Deeper Sleeper’ – Sealy’s objective for everyone – so you get up in the morning refreshed, rested and ready to face whatever the day throws at you.

Did you know that 10% of the weight of a two year old pillow can be composed of dead house dust mites and their droppings? Urrrgh! But this latest research* from Sealy and the British Chiropractic Association found that 1 in 5 people haven’t replaced a pillow for over a year and 20% (1 in 10) leave it for more than two years. 1 in 10 also have no idea what type of pillow material they sleep on and a staggering 84% don’t think it is important to consider their pillows and how they can impact on the health of their neck and back and 40% never even consider the matter when they last bought a pillow. This is quite mind boggling considering the research also showed that almost half of people (48%) complain that neck or back pain has prevented them from sleeping. As Rishi Loatey from the BCA says “A pillow is the overlooked ingredient in promoting a good sleeping posture. Your perfect pillow should keep your head in line with the rest of your body and mould to the shape of your head and neck.”

Following up on the huge success of their revolutionary Hybrid bed which contains a new type of gel infused foam on top of specially designed springs, and was launched late last year, Sealy’s Cooltech Gel Pillow is top of this new range which is rolling out across the UK now. The cool, refreshing and rejuvenating gel layer encased in a mesh interliner cover, absorbs and dissipates heat via thermal conductivity which helps your head stay

cool for longer, thus ensuring you fall asleep quicker and stay asleep longer in comfort. This pillow is perfect if you suffer from overheating in bed.

Other pillows in the range include the latest version of a pocket spring pillow, the Pocket Springback. Pioneers of this concept, Sealy launched their ‘sprillow’ a couple of years ago but this new, refined version is now softer and even more comfortable and supportive, and features 28 tiny individual sprung pockets nestled in memory foam layers which aids air circulation and offers resilience and comfort all night.

The Optimal Latex Pillow is highly responsive, moulding to the contours of the head and neck for gentle neck support. Latex provides effective pressure relief and springs back into shape instantly, supporting you when you move position. The key point with this pillow is that is encased in Thermex™ to help maintain ambient head temperature. This pillow is ideal for side or back sleepers.

Other pillows in the range are a set of Spinal Support Pillows, in 3 different sizes to suit small to large frames, so it is easy for someone to find exactly the right one for them. These superior pillows are specifically designed with a cellular support centre which increases air circulation and ensures the neck and spine are maintained in a straighter, more neutral position for real comfort. The range comes in medium to soft support.

Finally the Zonal Support Pillows are compact and dense, specially designed with a tubular foam insert at the base of the pillow for gentle neck support and engineered to their their shape perfectly. This range comes in medium to extra firm support.

Complementing this new range of pillowtastic bedding, Sealy have also launched a range of Mattress Enhancers in different depths which will give your bed a new lease of life as well as supporting the body and alleviating pressure points, thereby allowing muscles to relax. All these superb Sealy Enhancers are encased in Thermex™ and have a space mesh interliner to help maintain ambient body temperature, and they have a ventilated memory foam core centre to distribute weight more equally and alleviate pressure points.

So if you want to join the ranks of Sealy Deeper Sleepers, why not take advantage of this technologically advanced range of pillows and enhancers and Sealify your bed…you won’t regret it as you drift off for the sweetest of dreams.
