Today marks our first Duvet Day here at QVCUK, so you can expect to see luxurious bed linen from Northern Nights, pampering beauty from our top brands and much more – everything you need to make a date with your duvet!
We caught up with Claudia and Debbie to see how they would spend their Duvet Days…
"If I had a Duvet Day, which would have to happen after taking the children to school of course, I would come home, run a bath with my lovely Elemis Milk Bath and whilst that was running I would light my lavender candles and pull down the blinds in my bedroom. Nip downstairs and make myself a cup of tea, grab a gossip magazine and then have a lovely warm bath whilst perusing through the pages. I'd slap on some lovely rich body cream, slide into my soft jimmies and put on the cashmere bed socks I got for Christmas.
All relaxed and warm I'd climb into my big cuddly bed, which currently has the white Northern Nights wrinkle defence TSV we did a few weeks back on it and also has a featherbed too so its like a big fluffy cloud. I’d snuggle under the duvet (I always put the duvet round my head!) and be out like a light for about an hour.
When I wake up I'd flick on the TV and catch up on an episode of Holby City, which I record on Sky+ followed by one of the baby shows that I also record. I’d make the most of being in bed and relish every second – mobile would be off, all accept the school number which is always able to get through as its programmed as my emergency number – so I’d probably snooze again and just drift into a million daydreams and thoughts and feel totally at peace.
I might realise by this point that I haven’t ventured downstairs yet and I’m quite hungry, so with the realisation that it's nearly school pick up time, I’d grab a piece of fruit, get dressed and with a guilty look on my face go and meet all the other parents and the school gate!
Ah, let me get my diary and find out when I can schedule this day in…"
"If anyone hasn't yet tried the Northern Nights flannel duvet sets, I'd say give them a try – no Duvet Day is complete without them! My first set was in the tiger print to add to the beanie-baby tiger, the tiger throw and the tiger cushion! I'm in the lap of luxury when I climb into bed, it's so luxurious, warm and comfy.
So for me, my Duvet Day would begin with a cup of tea from the kids, the newspapers (preferably tabloid AND broadsheet for a really indulgent lie-in!) and some sort of breakfast in bed. Fresh croissants from the local Westcott Bakers are just exquisite as a rare treat! Then I'd probably do some reading – I'm in the middle of an exciting Clive Cussler 'Dirk Pitt' adventure right now, plus my usual Mills and Boon romances!
I’ve started writing some of my own stories too, so after a break for a bracing walk with the dogs, I’d snuggle back up under my Northern Nights duvet and continue writing my stories until being called for a lovely dinner prepared by my lovely children. Well I can live in hope!
Then we’d probably watch our favourite programmes for a while such as Harry Hill or The Apprentice, Monkey Life, Desperate Housewives or Lost, whilst playing a board game or two. The duvet would definitely come downstairs with me though – my house is an old 1850s cottage and can be a bit draughty!"
