Joseph Campbell, the famous mythologist, suggested taking one hour a day to do whatever you want – listen to corny music, walk, draw – do whatever it is you love.
“Follow your bliss,” he reminds us.
An hour a day?! For most women that seems an unattainable a dream. Whether raising children, working full time, taking care of others (and the house), we are usually the last candidate on the list for pampering. And often, it’s just simple, quiet alone time that we crave.
So for those moments (or Campbell’s hour) when we do get to have our own time, WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
How about sleepwear? Or Loungewear? Something soft and luxurious that nudges us to take life easy?
SNOA recommends ditching the frumpy, sweat pants and flannel pjs for a night - Feeling beautiful and luxurious while relaxing will notch up your experience of time well spent.
For a super-soft and flirty throw-on, try our new Astrid Mini Robe - worn comfortably over a nightie or nothing at all.
Enjoy your hour of re-charging, you deserve it!
Somewhere in our 30s, an evening at home starts to take on a whole new meaning. Between raising kids, working long hours, and keeping the house operating smoothly, having a night in with the husband usually means being asleep by 10 o’clock wrapped in a snuggie with a bowl of popcorn sprinkling to the floor.

Livia Firth is one of my favorite eco- fashionistas. You’ll likely know her best as wife to actor Colin Firth (remember “The King’s Speech”). But Livia has a few of her own things going on. She calls herself “Creative director of eco-age.com (a consultancy group for environmentally minded brands), Queen of the Green Carpet, [...]
Let’s talk about pants. Do you just about hate them as much as I do?Whether they are dress pants, jeans, shorts, skirts, capris, you name it, I’m sick of them.Think of it this way. We spend precious moments of our mornings forcing ourselves into newly washed pants, allowing us to start our days with a negative connotation about our [...]
The light from under the bathroom door outlines the king sized bed, flickering every so often as pink painted toes cover the slight airway. Throwing on just enough makeup to bring out her eyes, she tousles her hair into a loose bun, letting pieces of her sun-kissed hair fall to her cheekbones. Wearing a black silk robe, she outlines [...]
“She looks sleek and she seems so professional She's got a lot of confidence, it's easy to see You want to make a move But you feel so inferior Cause under that exterior Is someone who's free She's got style and she's got her own money So she's not another honey you can quickly disarm She's got the eyes that make you realize She [...]
27 years ago, our very own Lisa Tanzman acted on her impulse to "give back." She founded a non-profit camp that reunites siblings separated in foster care, giving them the opportunity to relax, have fun, and heal through therapeutic play and nature-bonding activities. According to Lisa, Camp Erutan gives abused and neglected children in foster [...]
You must be wondering, what luxury can come from a pajama set for women? I bet if you look in your dresser right this minute, you would find at least one pair of pajamas that you wear almost every night. Go ahead and look. I’ll wait…Got them? Good.Now that you're focused on this pair of PJs, consider whether [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
