I had the pleasure of meeting Narae Young of Sleep Gallery in Parnell on Friday morning. The boutique bed store is certainly the most beautiful bed store I have ever been in. I was lucky enough to be fitted for a pillow, by Danish bed brand TEMPUR. It is amazing. “We are passionate about sleep and finding our customers the ultimate sleep solution is important to us” sauys Narae Young. “Discovering which pillow is right for you is a big part of how well we sleep and a good start on the road to that perfect night’s rest. This pillow fitting service is available to anyone so please pop down to 101 The Strand, Parnell and have a chat.” I totally recommend you do!

At Sleep Gallery in Parnell, you can have a wee lie down for a few hours to try before you buy! They’re part of Bedpost with the same prices, but in a stunning interior design store. Below: Sleep Gallery’s Narae Young, with Flaunt PR’s Fiona McLeod.

I’m going to be getting crafty, with this incredible haul of craft supplies from the Spotlight media season launch. I love too that this bag is made for Spotlight with Stitch In Time, employing women in communities to improve their standard of life and fair trade labour.

On Thursday we headed along to the Auckland premiere of Disney On Ice. This year saw four entire fairy tales come to life: The Little Mermaid, Tangled, Beauty & the Beast, and of course the crowd favourite – Frozen, with Elsa, Anna, Hans, Kristof, Olaf and Sven singing and skating. My pick though was The Little Mermaid, with Ariel doing aerial feats above the ice on a silk rope. Stunning skating, and great for all ages.
