As we approach daylight savings and lose an hour of sleep, we also enter Sleep Awareness Month.
When it comes to fitting sleep into our busy schedules, we’ve got some key tips for quality shut-eye. Along with some delicious dining and art for your wardrobe, here’s what we are loving this week.
EAT HERE Kuro Eatery, Notting Hill
Tucked unassumingly down a side street in Notting Hill, brand new Kuro Eatery is a serene spot for breakfast and lunch, with supper service from Thursday to Saturday. The design is deliciously minimalist, with pale cream walls, bleached wood, and a long, low stone bar – the ideal backdrop for vibrant sharing dishes that appear from a menu bursting with Mediterranean flavours. Don’t miss the signature dish of flatbread topped with goat’s cheese and drizzled generously with fermented hot honey. Afterwards, you can always pop into sister site Kuro Coffee for a cup of the strong stuff to accompany an afternoon stroll down neighbouring Portobello Road.
BOOK WITH THIS SHe Travel Club
SHe Travel Club is the first and only female-focused label for hotels promising to empower all women to travel “safe & happy everywhere” (SHe). It grades hotels by their efforts to meet the needs of women guests; the four main criteria being safety, comfort, services & amenities, and dining & entertainment. All the hotels in the SHe Travel Club collection provide a SHe Signature Kit on request, which includes make-up remover, nail polish remover, and sanitary products. They also offer services and facilities targeted to the needs of women including lit corridors and spy holes in guest room doors to hand-held shower heads. Women can sign-up for free to access the collection of hotels and filter by destination, experience – for example, spa, city-break, seaside, budget-break, or business – and label. Membership is free and provides women, and those who identify as women, with access to the collection of SHe certified hotels, including a promo code which entitles them to exclusive offers and welcome gifts from certified hotels.
USE THIS Smythson's Evergreen Refillable Notebooks
From little thoughts to big ideas, Smythson’s Evergreen Refillable Notebooks are designed to last forever, bound in the signature sumptuous Ludlow leather, which will soften beautifully over time. Inside, the signature Nile Blue Featherweight paper comes as a notepad insert with 192 pages, to be replenished infinitely, giving it an extended lifespan, and reducing its environmental impact. Evergreen by name, evergreen by nature, this notepad will suit even the most insatiable scribbler. Don’t forget to add your initials for good measure.
TREAT YOURSELF TO THIS Sleep Awareness Week
Are you getting a good night’s sleep? Ensuring rest is imperative for your overall health and just as important as exercising and eating a balanced diet. The theme for this year’s Sleep Awareness Week (12th – 18th March) is ‘Sleep is Essential For Health’. Look to the Cowshed Essential Sleep Set (£55) with its three sleep essentials; Sleep Bath Salts, Sleep Candle and Sleep Spray to ensure every slumber is sound and undisturbed. With notes of Melissa and Lemon Myrtle, drift away with ease and wake up rejuvenated. Or book yourself some well-needed rest and recovery with ESPA’s sensorial spa offerings. Choose from ESPA’s Sleep Ritual or Mindful Massage spa treatments, transporting yourself to a place of peace and serenity, as you reconnect with your senses and calm your body and mind. From ESPA life at Corinthia to a Stratford-upon-Avon getaway at Billesley Manor. For on-the-go care, the sleek and comfortable Oura ring is health tracking wrapped around your finger — sleep, activity and recovery. Your scores tell you how your body feels and what your body needs, every second of every day. You’ll know when you need more sleep, when you might be getting sick, when it’s time to push yourself — and more — with a personalised experience on the Oura App.
