Chilled to the Bone?

Amanda Palmer, The Pajama Company Editor

Do you know the feeling of bone chilling cold? You know the cold that seeps into your bones and does not leave until the first warm spring morning?

This week it officially feels like old man winter is knocking on the door. I actually have been blessed to be in my home town of Hamden Connecticut for a few weeks and right now I am sitting in a toasty warm living room wearing  a  pair of Warm Whiskers Cozy Cat Slippers. These slippers are great for warm cozy toes, you actually warm the slippers in the microwave and then just slip them on and snuggle down.

 

As I sat and looked out the sliding glass door this morning I saw white slushy snow fall, which is the first time in almost 20 years. I knew that it was chilly outside so I decided to relax with a nice cup of Mexican Hot Chocolate and a fresh baked pumpkin muffin of course I was in my Kashwere Super Soft Shawl Collard Robe. I forgot how nice it is to snuggle in comfy pajamas while drinking a lovely warm Mexican hot chocolate to keep those chilly bones warm.

So what will you be doing tonight? Want to do the same as I am? O.K. then you get the robe and slippers and I will give you a great recipe for Mexican hot chocolate so you can enjoy the finer things in life.

Ingredients:

  • 4  cups  whole milk
  • 1 1/3  cups (8 ounces) chocolate (any kind you like I prefer 72% dark) chopped to melt faster
  • 2  tablespoons sugar
  • 2  teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
Directions:
  1. In a large saucepan, combine all the ingredients and 1 cup water over medium heat, whisking constantly, until hot but not boiling, about 8 minutes (the mixture should smooth). Pour into 4 large mugs.

 

I love how the sweetness of the chocolate mingles with the spicy of the chili powder on the palate, it’s wonderful and it warms you through and through.So the next time you see the snow get your favorite slippers, robe, blanket or pajamas and make a batch of this Mexican hot chocolate and ENJOY!

Falling Back Into Pajamas

Amanda Palmer, The Pajama Company Editor

Did you remember to set your clocks back an hour? I actually remembered this year, but it really doesn’t matter because today is one of my official pajama days! Yes, it is a laid back Sunday for my family. We are sitting in our living room in our pajamas and watching movies on Netflix.

 

We all have our own favorite type of pajama set. My oldest daughter loves snuggling with our pets and truly has a love for animals so her favorite pajama day gear is our Moose Caboose Pink Pajama Flapjack Pajamas  paired with Aroma Home’s Knitted “Cat” Slipper Socks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Middle daughter loves staying cozy in our “Bedtime Bears” Fleece Footie Pajamas. She snuggles up under a blanket with her favorite tea time friends and tells stories while staying snug as a cute little bug!

 

 

 

The tiniest part of my family toddles along with her PJ Salvage “Cupcakes” Waffle Blanket and her Hot Hugs Monkey in tow. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This post wouldn’t be complete without me mentioning the men in my life. My Husband and Nephew love to stay comfortable and warm in their Pajama Pants.

My Husband can never be “crabby” when he is wearing his Lazy One “Lobster” Pajama Pants

Then my Nephew brings life into any of our family pajama parties with his Hatley Nature Men’s “Moose on Plaid” Flannel Pants

I hope you have enjoyed my little slice of life and how my family makes the most of falling back and enjoying our crisp fall day in comfort. Maybe I also left you with some ideas on how to relax in style with your family as well!

Stay Warm & Cozy with our New bSoft Pajamas

Amanda Palmer, The Pajama Company Editor

The Pajama Company is proud to introduce our newest line of flannel pajamas. The bSoft, pajama line matches the soft comfort of flannel with stylish patterns you are bound to enjoy.

We don’t just offer pajamas with the bSoft line, we offer pajama sets, nightshirts, robes and soft and comfy slippers. Everything you need to stay warm and snug on the coldest days of the year.

One of the most important pajama days of the year for me is Christmas morning. Every year we as a family stay in our pajamas and open gifts. Our family is just like any other so you know pictures are a must on Christmas morning.

This year I envision myself coming down the stairs, walking into our den to sit on the couch and open presents in Cambridge Damask Blue Bamboo Flannel Pajamas which I think are the most elegant of pajamas. I love the pretty blue and how it pairs well with the regal Damask pattern, yes you too can feel like a princess in this gorgeous set.

When having my picture taken, I want to be sure I coordinate well. And bSoft takes all the work out of matching the look for you. I know that when Christmas morning arrives I will be looking my best and feeling my comfiest in the pajama, robe and slipper set.

If the Blue Damask look is not for you there is no need to worry. We offer many styles and colors that would be sure to suit your need and fashion tastes.

Want to give a gift that will be memorable? I suggest the Classic Parisian Toile Bamboo Sleep Shirt . It’s a great way to see all the classic Parisian sights without leaving the house.  Who needs an expensive flight when you have bSoft pajamas? All that  is needed is a good cup of coffee and a croissant and you are standing at the Eiffel Tower enjoying the view.

There is a little bit of something for everyone with these cozy flannel pajamas. Want to help save our earth? Well the fabric is made from a bamboo/cotton blend which is breathable and brings comfort at any temperature. The material is fully biodegradable and an renewable resource making it a eco-friendly choice.

Who knew you could be stylish, have breathable comfort and do your part in preserving our planet just by making yourself comfortable at night?

If what I just described to you is of interest then I suggest you check out our bSoft line by CLICKING HERE

Dorm Room Essentials

By Ellie Badanes, The Pajama Company Editor

With move-in day just around the corner, we have a few ideas for college life. We know books, laptops, desk lamps, microwaves and toiletries are important but we think pajamas also rank as a dorm room “Essential.” Pajamas are truly the study uniform of choice on campus and we have some pretty perfect flannels to get the semester started. Paired with that new college sweatshirt or tee, our pj pants are ready to go the distance be it pulling that “all nighter” or lounging with dorm mates. When it’s time for that power nap, our collection of social media pillows not only livens up the bed but provides a soft place to land.

Here’s to a great semester with happy pajama times to come on campus!

Meet the New Pajama Company Intern: Steffi Badanes

By Steffi Badanes, Social Media Intern

Editor’s Note: Steffi Badanes is our newest Pajama Company intern. You will see her around this blog, Facebook, Twitter, Polyvore, Tumblr, Instagram, and Pinterest. As always, we asked Steffi to introduce herself to you by answering some very important Pajama Company questions. 

1. Describe your favorite pajamas.

They’re a pair of blue and green argyle pajama pants that say “nerds rule” on the butt! I love David & Goliath. They always make the cutest PJs!

2. What would your perfect day look like?

I love spring/summer weather, so it would have to be at least 75 degrees out. I love wearing shorts and tank tops, so hitting the town in a cute outfit with some close buds is perfect!

3. What was the last book you read?

I’m a college student. The last book I read was a memoir about eating disorders for my writing class called Wasted by Marya Hornacher. It was tough to read at points but a really honest look at the human mind of someone with an eating disorder.

4. What song is currently stuck in your head 

Love Today by Mika. It’s just such a happy and positive tune!

5. What youtube video are you watching over and over?

Space Oddity: A music video in space by Commander Chris Hadfield! I’ve always wondered what astronauts do for fun while they’re hanging out in space.

6. Winter or Summer?

Summer. Without question. I love expressing myself through my clothes. You have to cover up your cute outfits with giant puffy coats in the winter!

7. Stripes or plaid? 

I’m such a stripes girl. I wear some form of stripes everyday. I own five different black and white striped shirts!
