The Softest Sheets – Ever!

The last cruise I went on included a stop at St. Kitts. While there, I decided to look for a store the ship had recommended in their shopping excursion talk.

Now, I don’t go on cruises to shop. I like to sight-see. But I went to the talk because I was hoping to win something (I’ll take something free!). I didn’t expect to be interested in anything to buy. Well, I was interested in the jewelry, but not the price tags.
The “presenter” talked about Cariloha and their bamboo products while a pillow was passed around so we could see for ourselves what bamboo material felt like. It caught my attention. The description intrigued me, too.

So… we had time after our excursion and I found the store. The king-sized sheet sets were $199, and I had a $25 coupon. Figured why not. I needed sheets anyway. We took advantage of the free shipping.

After a few weeks though, we hadn’t received our sheets. I contacted the vendor and discovered there was a problem with the shipment in Long Beach. They apologized for the delay and offered me either a free upgrade to their premium sheets (a $60 value), which they had in stock and could ship right away, or credit to shop in their store (a $40 value). I took the upgrade, since I wasn’t sure I would want anything else.

The sheets came in last week. Let me tell you… I’m in LOVE!

They are the most softest sheets ever. And I’m not sweating in them like I was our cotton ones (hot flashes are a bitch—even in the winter). I may just have to buy another set. Or maybe go on another cruise. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Wait. What do you mean? Wouldn’t you go on a cruise just to save $25 on the best sheets ever? J

But seriously, they are some awesome sheets and I just had to share. And if you’re in the market for sheets, I suggest you give these a try (and no, I’m not being paid for saying this).


I finally (FINALLY) finished the content edits of Blind Temptation. Now the book is with my daughter for copy/line editing. This is the career she wants, so I aim to take advantage.

But do you know what that all means???? It means I can go back to work on Ghostly Interlude!! Yay!!!!

Oh yeah, and read some more. Still have those books I have to judge. Two down, though! Whoo hoo!

So… Who got a snow day from work today? Glad I don’t have to go anywhere!

No snow day for us--possibly tomorrow, depending on how this storm breaks. It is cold, though, hanging around 0 right now.

Bamboo sheets? It sounds...odd. I'm glad you got a good deal on them, even if you had to wait!

Jeff - Bamboo does sound odd. I almost wondered if they'd hold up in the wash! :) But they really are satin-y without being slippery.

Sorry for the 0 temps. It's cold here, but in the teens. Just means the snow won't be leaving anytime soon. Thank goodness we didn't get a lot.

I saw those bamboo sheets at Costco. I might need to give them a second look.

No snow day here. :( But my husband has a bamboo t-shirt from Costa Rica, and those sheets are anything like it, they must be awesome!

Stacy McKitrick said...

Maria - Couldn't hurt to give them a feel! :)

Jennette - Sorry you had to go to work. But hey, I'm working too. I just don't have to go anywhere to do it. :)

Very cool on the new sheets. It's actually clean sheet day here, today.

Just regular snow for us.

Oh man, taking a boat cruise is on my bucket list!!

Stacy McKitrick said...

Ivy - Regular snow? Does that mean there's irregular snow? I'd like to see that! :)

Donna - Love cruising. My husband is always looking for good deals (and usually finds them!).
