Win! Orla Kiely Scribble Stem Cotton Bedding

Today I’m delighted to post the first of a few home and interiors giveaways this week, and to hopefully perk you up, what with this rather rubbish July weather that we’ve been having lately (where is the sun?!). 

I have always been a huge fan of anything Orla Kiely, and her iconic designs are instantly recognisable, bringing a huge colour injection to any home. We had one of her wallpaper designs in the downstairs cloakroom in our old house, and we are still loving and using some oven gloves that we were bought by a friend 5 years ago (and that are still going strong!). 

So today on the blog I am giving away some bedding I’ve been waiting to get my mitts on- Orla Kiely Scribble Stem Cotton Bedding in Duck Egg and Sea Grass, available from John Lewis at the moment and what I’m giving away is worth up to a not-to-be-sniffed at Β£135. The lucky winner will receive 2 pillow cases from the range, plus either a Double or King duvet cover (the winner can name their preferred choice when contacted once the giveaway ends).

All you have to do is fill in the Rafflecopter below, using as many of the options as you’d like:

  1. Staying off your mobile phone after a certain time in the evening. Mobile phones are brilliant, as we all know however the light is bad for keeping you awake but it’s also addictive and one search follows another until the wee small hours of the morning!

  2. Switch off all technology at least 45 mins before you go to bed. I always used to always be using my laptop until lights off and I really struggled to switch off and fall asleep. Since switching it off 45 mins before lights out, and reading a book instead, I find I fall straight to sleep!

  3. I use a lavender sleep spray on my pillowcases and wear an eye mask which I find helps πŸ™‚

  4. Sorry haven’t got one as do not sleep very good so will keep a close eye on the suggestions and hopefully this will work

  5. I always open the window a little bit to get some fresh air in the bedroom. It seems to help me sleep well πŸ™‚

  6. My top tip for getting a good night’s sleep is not to have any technology in the bedroom.

  7. My tip is not to get absorbed in a book right before bed and not be able to set it down to sleep.. My better tip is to make sure you have a good pillow, it is just so important!

  8. A drop of lavender oil on my pillow and to mediate for ten minutes before settling down, as this will really clear your head and help you to relax. Thanks for this lovely giveaway, I love this bedding.

  9. Top tip for getting a good night’s sleep? Simple: Don’t have kids! Seriously. Don’t worry… there’s plenty of upsides to having kids, but getting sufficient sleep for the next couple of decades? Forget it.

  10. Try to get plenty of fresh air and exercise throughout the day and if you have lots of things on your mind then write them down and tell yourself you’ll look at them in the morning. A nice, warm caffeine-free drink; (avoid any stimulants) and a dark, distraction free room at a decent temperature then Bob’s your uncle – a good night’s sleep!

  11. Try to go to sleep and get up at the same time everyday, get as much natural sunlight as possible, move vigorously during the day – don’t sit for more than an hour, limit caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, and big meals at night, take time for relaxing activities before sleep and create a calm and restful sleep environment.

  12. I always have a cup of camomile tea before bed and a comfortable pillow and mattress helps to have a good nights sleep

  13. we have the radio on all night, can’t sleep if it is too quiet,have speech radio not music

  14. Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy wealthy and wise, is the old saying. There is alot of truth in it. Getting to bed by 10-30 pm on an evening especially when at work the next day gives optimum health with sleep.

  15. Make sure that your bedroom is peaceful, quiet and not too hot or cold. Also don’t use screens before bed or during the night.

  16. Try not to eat anything too sugary before bed
    Switch off from gadgets and tv, read a book you will soon fall asleep

  17. I don’t usually have any trouble sleeping, but I’ve certainly slept better since having a new medium firm mattress, and I sleep with just one fairly thin pillow.

  18. I have a no life planning after 9pm rule, and also listen to a mindfulness app just before bed – really helps me to clear my mind and get off to sleep!

  19. I’ve actually just discovered I sleep better if I DO eat a little something before bed, I think it must counter a drop in blood sugar in the early hours!

  20. Don’t have children or a fiance who snores, if like me its to late for that I find reading a book after a nice relaxing bath always helps me to drift off, even if I do lose my page ☺ xxx

  21. A relaxing bath with lavender, a herbal tea, candle, good book, no phones, an eye mask and asleep by 10pm!

  22. Having a Camomile tea an hour before bed, switching off the mobile phone, having black-out blinds and a fan on

  23. I read in bed every night which has trained my mind to know reading = sleepy time. Not good when you want to read on a rainy afternoon though a inevitably always fall asleep on the couch!

  24. Try not to worry too much about not sleeping. Sometimes the biggest obstacle is lying awake panicking about the fact that you are lying awake!
    I find that developing a “what will be, will be” attitude stops me getting stressed out over it and enables me to drop off more quickly. Think of the positives to lying awake when everyone else is sleeping. If you’re like me and you can hardly hear yourself think at times during the day, use your awake time at night as well deserved quiet time or brain space. If you don’t fear being awake, you’re more likely to be relaxed enough to drop off to sleep.

    Works for me, anyway.

  25. I always leave my TV on at a low volume with the sleep timer on. The small amount of background noise keeps my overactive mind distracted and helps me to drift off.

  26. Preparation! If we don’t have company I will wash and change by 9pm so I know I am in my wind down phase. If I leave it until I want to go to bed I find I still sit up for an hour because it has freshened me up πŸ™

  27. Having a bedtime routine isn’t just for kids! I find if you do the same thing each night, it’s easier to fall asleep.

  28. A tidy bed, so it’s comfy and a room that’s not too warm – I often have the window open to keep the temperature down.

  29. all gadgets even your phone banned half an hour before bed! it helps to switch off and your eyes to relax!

  30. I try to try to keep my bedroom at a constant temperature that I’m most comfortable with whether it be winter or summer.

  31. Keep a pad by the bed and write down anything you think of that you want to remember, so they don’t keep you awake worrying you’ll forget it. Also if you find lots going around in your head when you’re trying to get to sleep, try keeping a diary so you can get everything down on paper, it can help with the sea of thoughts.

  32. dont have kids!!!
    A nice warm drink of milk before bed and i find some relaxing ‘nature;’ sounds help too

  33. Stay active during the day…no napping! A good book,mug of Coco,a cosy bed and partner/pet to snuggle with x

  34. Having some sort of routine helps me. Going to bed at the same time and getting up at the same time every day really helps.

  35. I always try to turn screens off half an hour before bed and like to read a book or write in my diary!

  36. It sounds mad, but I make up stories in my head where I’m on a tv programme or something, I usually fall asleep before anything good happens! Yes, I am mad, but it works!!

  37. I always go to bed at the same time and read for half an to make me sleepy I make sure I get my full 8 hours a night.

  38. keep the room dark and cool and don’t use any electronic devices for at least an hour before going to bed

  39. I get really drunk Friday and Saturday nights and simply drift off into a spinning world of dreams

  40. For me it has to be having a nice hot bath before bed then read a book for half an hour before i fall asleep.

  41. I always make myself a nice herbal tea and read for 30 minutes to an hour before I start drifting off

  42. No phones or computers before bed. Whenever I mess about on my phone I’m up for hours afterwards and can’t sleep.

  43. I always wear a sleep mask and earplugs. The sleep mask is because I find I get woken early once it gets light, and the earplugs are because my husband snores!

  44. I highly recommend ear plugs to cut out all that ambient background noise and also potential snoring from your partner!

  45. I always ensure that I stop using technology a good couple of hours before I intend to go to sleep, and at bedtime, I always use a Lavender Pillow Mist, and then curl up in bed with a book.

  46. I broke my foot a few weeks back and so increased the amount of milk I was drinking…anyway, now I’m in a nice habit of a large glass of milk in bed and sleeping with the window open for a breeze. Maybe I’m tapping in to some kind of childhood comfort, I don’t know! But whatever it is seems to be working.

  47. I keep a window open all year so that it is fresh in the bedroom.Plus it has to be dark so we have blinds and curtains. I always have a hot drink before bed and then go to bed and read a few pages of my book until I am ready to sleep.

  48. Try to establish a good routine in terms of going to bed and getting up at the same time each day, even on weekends, after several bouts of being unable to get to sleep, this got me back in the rhythmn and I drop off to sleep much easier nowadays.

  49. Make the room very, very dark – blackout curtains, shield the display on any bedside radio or other electronic gadget in the room (or remove them”), make sure the door is closed tightly every night.

  50. Always take time to unwind before going to bed and also don’t get into bed if you are not tired. I always find if go to bed too soon that I lay awake for hours!

  51. My top tip for a good night’s sleep is black out curtains! I used to wake up so early before I bought real black out curtains!

  52. I would love to share a tip to a good nights sleep but I haven’t had one in 14 years with my three kids all having struggled to sleep through the night and the youngest 6 still getting up multiple times. I do think a flow of fresh air helps me to drift off though so I do have the windows in my bedroom open whatever the time of year.

  53. My Top Tip is to Have a Warm Bath , a Hot drink and settle down with a little soft music to relax your mind so that ou can slowly drop off to sleep , I have a Fan on in my room all year round too to create a cool breeze .

  54. I have a nice relaxing bubble bath and get in to fresh clean bedding always have a wonderful nights sleep

  55. Having one leg out of the duvet, cold pillow and preferably the kids are away with family haha, maybe that was a dream.

  56. I struggle with sleep,due a chronic illness. I find having a milky drink and a bath/shower before bed helps. I also make sure my bedroom is well ventilated,I have black out curtains and blinds up at my window as I found daylight would wake me early. I’d be thrilled to win this stunning set. Thanks for the chance,PLEASE count me in? x

  57. Make sure bertie doesn’t nap so he goes down like a dream come 7pm….make me one relaxed mummy come bedtime!

  58. Camomile tea. It’s not a ‘tea’ as such but a herb infusion. As long as I don’t drink it later than 9pm, which makes me go to the loo in the middle of the night, I have a very restful deep sleep.

  59. Try to relax and destress before bed, no screen time right before bedtime either!

    Best thing that works for me though is sleeping kids, if my 3 sleep well, I sleep well x
