The last year and a half has been a doozy. It is times like these when we need to actively relax, take a step back, and find the little joys in life. That is why I am teaming up with today’s cozy brand to bring you a booklover’s recipe for an idyllic day of R & R. It’s time for cocktails, hardcovers, and Purple, my library-loving fiends!
At the base of any killer recipe is a set of harmonious quality ingredients. And that is exactly what we have to make our relaxation recipe. Let’s break it all down, shall we?
A cushy location is key to creating the perfect space for a booklover’s paradise. And let’s be honest, there is nothing cozier than a dreamy bed. So if you want only the highest quality of ‘ingredients’, Purple is the place to start. Not only are they experts in comfy mattress making, Purple covers the whole spectrum of the sleep experience. So here’s what you’ll need from them to set the scene for some hardcore, hardcover reading… First on the list, the Purple SoftStretch sheet set! These one-of-a-kind moisture-wicking sheets not only help regulate body temperature, they are crazy soft. No joke, the sheets are so soft, you might just ditch the cocktail and book outright, and spend your evening rubbing your cheeks on them! And look how deliciously lavender they are! So pretty!
No good “reading in bed” session is complete without a comfy pillow in tow. And boy, you cannot beat the Purple Harmony Pillow. Made with the same innovative process as they manufacture their mattress, the pillow features Purple Grid Hex technology. Now if you’ve ever had the pleasure of laying on one of Purple Innovations mattresses, then you know how amazing this pillow feels. The cloud- like grid structure conforms to every tiny contour of your back, neck, and head.
And lastly, for good measure, garnish the coziness with a set of the Sleepy Jones x Purple Pajamas. They are made with the SoftStretch Sheets fabric, which means they are also moisture-wicking and cooling. *Squeals in Lilac* Seriously, this is the cherry on top of the booklover’s sundae.
I suggest pairing today’s relaxation recipe with a stellar literary choice! The Paper Palace by Miranda Cowley Heller is lauded to be one of the summer’s best new fiction. This #1 New York Times Bestseller centers around the secrets, love, and lies that take place under the roof of a summer beach house. Oh la la!
Like the book choice, the paired cocktail’s flavors celebrate the end of summer. Juniper, honey, and ginger add a punch of sweet warmth, while rosé mellows out the effect for a long-lasting sipping (while page-turning) experience.
Rosé Colored Glasses
Stir the gin, ginger, lime, and honey in a wine glass. Top with rose and enjoy!
Pajamas, pillow, sheets, hardcover, cocktail, and a sunset-filled room for good measure! The gang is all here. All that’s left is mixing all these ingredients together and you have yourself a delicious recipe for relaxation.
Make sure to check out Purple’s amazing line of mattresses and sleep accessories. You won’t be disappointed! So tell me, what book should I add to my reading list… best suggestions may just get a custom cocktail recipe to pair with it! Cheers!
