As an everyday woman, relaxation is hard to come by. Working longer than the regular 9 to 5, being a woman is another full time job, and trust me, it doesn’t pay much (cue the men rolling their eyes).
As a woman in the 21st century, not one day includes lounging on the couch sipping wine and eating cupcakes (if only...).
21st Century Women do it all and hold it all together. The time to relax and
unwind is nearly nonexistent. So by the time the moon begins to glow and the
stars come out to twinkle, we barely have time to enjoy it. Why? Because we are
already passed out between the sheets.
How can we carve time to relax into our supermom/domestic goddess/entrepreneur schedules?
It’s not with an alarm clock that gives off sounds of the ocean or some place in the rain forest. Or a strange new app for our phones. And no, it’s not contact info for a therapist either (because we all know we wouldn't mind having one once in a while).
The answer simply lies in your sleepwear, or luxury pajamas, to be exact.
Sleep is a time to unwind, something we all naturally need to build into our time, a time for tying up the loose strings of the day and settling in to bed to relax. Therefore, it is highly important to find sleepwear that makes us feel comfortable and relaxed, all while feeling feminine and confident.
After a long day of stressful working hours, taking care of the family, and finding a minute of peace in the aisles of the grocery store, no woman wants to slip into bed in constraining clothing. Lightweight natural fabrics, such as modal jersey and bamboo fleece, are not only gentle on the environment, but on the skin as well.
Sustainable, eco-friendly fabrics are not only breathable and healthy to wear, but they are also kind to the planet (which helps settle our mind about broader issues, too).
Most women aren't inclined to spend so much on themselves, struck with guilt if considering purchasing luxury items. But we need to realize that without such amazing women as ourselves, most families come apart like a loose braid. It is a woman’s natural instinct to want to spoil herself, even if it does only happen once in a while. And what better thing to spoil a hard-working, independent woman with than something she can unwind with every day.
Being able to relax in fabrics that are soft and comforting brings a good night's sleep that energizes the body for another busy day. These types of pajamas are not exclusively meant for someone who lives a rich lifestyle; they are a must for any woman who wants to relax with peace of mind that she is doing something good for the planet and herself.
Today, we want the bedroom to be a sanctuary away from the stresses and realities of life. We want warm pajamas for women that provide comfort and relaxation to get the best sleep possible. Sleepwear trends are leaning toward luxury brands like SNOA Sleepwear that help the environment and the economy.
So go ahead, relax and spoil yourself a little!
1. Make Sure It FitsNo matter how sexy a particular outfit is, if it doesn’t fit properly, the affect won’t be as appealing on you or your significant other. Sexy nightgowns and luxury pajamas that are too loose or overly constricting will fail to complement a woman's body, either hiding her best features or shifting the focus to features that [...]
When we think sexy, we think sleeveless. As an American woman, we have a culturally-influenced notion that in order to be alluring, we need to have as little clothing on as possible.It is a very limiting construct, and most women don't feel comfortable baring all. We want beauty, and intrigue, but also respect...and skimpy doesn't always [...]
Since every woman is unique in the way she looks, it goes without saying that one size does not fit all. When it comes to clothing, only items that fit well will complement a woman's figure. Anything that is misfitting in some way will only make her feel less attractive.Women always want to feel good about the way [...]
Women around the world acknowledge that clothing choices can dramatically improve our moods. For example, a quick trip to the store dressed in sweatpants and a tractor-pull logo T-shirt makes us far less positive, outgoing and decisive than had we chosen a pair of trendy jeans topped with a cashmere sweater. By the same token, [...]

The SNOA design process:First a style idea pops into Karen's or my head. Then we sketch it out (Karen is by far the better artist!) Then we refine the sketch - plenty of erasing and re-working. We SNOA designers send our sketches to each other and nit-pick, making it as perfect [...]
Tonight when you put on your SNOA Sleepwear, try dabbing a little grapefruit essential oil behind each ear for added sex appeal. William R. Levesque reported for the Tampa Bay Times that a study conducted by Dr. Alan Hirsch, director of the Smell and Taste Treatment Research Foundation in Chicago, showed that women wearing the [...]
