A Sleepy Bum Australia bedding review

I have collaborated with Sleepy Bum Australia to introduce their fun range of manchester bedding.

So who is Sleepy Bum?
If you don’t know about Sleepy Bum, you should!
An Australian online company based in NSW.
Not a new company but a trusted brand that has been around for sometime now.

They have a wonderful range of products to suit all of us.
The best thing about the Sleepy Bum brand is the variety of designs for every member of the household.
Actually, Sleepy Bum bedding is a great way to spoil yourself or spoil mum this Mother’s Day.

I chose  the Rose De Provins cover set, I truly love it. It’s just so pretty!
This ‘vintage style’ shabby chic pattern is gorgeous, I also like the fact that it is 200 thread count – 100% cotton.

From a styling point of view, you could team it up with one of my buntings with a Sleepy Bum quilt cover. 

Union Jack, Stars & Stripes Flag Bunting


Sleepy Bum Australia - Anthea in Baby Pink Cover Set

New bedding is an inexpensive makeover – no need for expensive new furniture – new bedding will give you a whole new look without the big price. In fact, as I post this, Sleep Bum Australia are having a sale!!! Yay!

Recently I have decided to be part of the wonderful Pop Up Shop in Yarraville called Far Fetched Designs.

This store is temporary and will move to different venues throughout the year. It's the second phase of the venture (they were in Anderson st, Yarraville mid this year for about two months).
Each location brings new handmade artists and and some regular artists with high quality items and Australian made too. Actually, mostly made in Melbourne!
They call it a "a gift paradise", I have to agree.  It's certainly a visual treat!

Christmas is getting closer, now is a great time to visit Far Fetched Designs!
