Dita Von Teese
I absolutely love my sleep and my bed. I think bedding is hugely important - I have six goose down pillows on my bed, a mattress topper and a goose down duvet. Egyptian cotton sheets and silk pillowcases - all bought at knock down prices. My bed is so comfortable I never want to get out if it!
I have no body clock at all so I tend to be a night person. I can stay up all night at the drop of a hat. I don't even mean on a night out. I can stay up with no help whatsoever, but then I can also sleep for England. I am perfectly alright on five or six hours but at the weekends I love a lie-in. There was a time when I stayed up all weekend but my serious partying days are (mostly) over!
I never tire of this film although I've never understood why her bed was so small?
I never wear eye masks but The Actor swears by them. And a blackout blind. There can't be a crack of light showing. His sleep will be interrupted if the Sky+ makes a creaking noise. Once I'm asleep I'll sleep through anything. My friend Daisy and I slept through a twenty-two storey tower block being demolished a hundred feet from my house and on one holiday I slept through an earthquake.
Mary Green Breakfast at Tiffany's eye mask
There's something not quite right about the face on this eye mask, or maybe it's the eyebrows? A bit like when you get a cuddly toy with a wonky eye or something. Not that I'm into cuddly toys you understand. My dad bought me a dark brown bear about five years ago "Because he liked it" Not exactly what I was expecting at my age!
Better than a sleeping pill
I'll only sleep when I'm absolutely on my last legs and my eyes begin to close themselves. I've taken every possible pill and potion in my time. I'm sure a lot of it is psychological. Then I went through a stage when just knowing there was a valium in the house would be enough. I haven't taken anything for years. The thing which completely cured me from taking sleeping pills was putting a few drops of lavender oil on my pillow. Unbelievable really, but it works every time!
I've had my Saturday lie-in then I'm off to keep Mrs Jones company down the road in Shoreditch. I'm sure it will be lots of fun and will definitely involve a lot of dressing up. I must take my camera.
Happy Saturday xxx
