For anyone watching the 2014 Golden Globe awards show, actress Jennifer Lawrence’s dress caused quite a stir! Not because it was inappropriate or singularly unattractive, but because for some reason, her dress just took off in the webosphere becoming an internet meme, with people emulating it on a cat, on a man, on a Barbie doll, using a napkin, a sail and then this image utilizing a product we’re very familiar with!
Tweeter @LanaDelRny posted this comfy version of JLaw’s Christian Dior gown. We felt that it hit the right note of comfort and fashion, and who knows, perhaps it could be a new product line for Cuddledown?

Since it’s our 40th anniversary, we’ve been researching the 70s, and found that in 1976, in the year of our country’s bicentennial, President Gerald Ford and Congress designated the week of Thanksgiving “National Family Week.” In an article posted at the Retro Housewife, the author outlines the history of Thanksgiving, including the following:
Thanksgiving and family are two words that have become inseparably linked ever since this – rich tradition began with the pilgrims 355 years ago in December 1621. ”Thanksgiving is the oldest and most truly American of our national holidays,” contended Ralph Linton,” renowned American anthropologist. “It has changed less in its intention and in the manner of its celebration than any other of our holidays, national or international. The founders of America had never heard of most of the things we now do at Christmas or Easter, but Thanksgiving is still very much what the Pilgrims made it – A giving of thanks for divine bounty coupled with a practical demonstration of that bounty.”
“Thanksgiving, even more than Christmas, is the holiday which brings scattered kindred together,” he continued, “Old family jokes and stones are shared and for a little while all hands bask in a sense of belonging to an intimate, affectionate group. They may go back to their separate homes later, but for a while they have been part of something larger than themselves.”
Following in this tradition, at Cuddledown, we’re closed on Thanksgiving (unlike many of the big box stores), so our employees (and customers) can spend the day relaxing and celebrating with their familes and friends. We’ll be enjoying the holiday with our loved ones, and wish you the same!

It’s that time of year again! We’re starting to think about making our homes a little cozier for the holidays, and what better place to start than with the guest bedroom. If you’re a little strapped for time (who isn’t?) but want to perk up a tired guest bed, why not add …
A mattress pad! Although they aren’t the most glamorous element of a top-notch bed, mattress pads are essential in transforming a comfy bed into one that you’ll never want to leave. Not sure which mattress pad to choose? A couple of our favorites are the Ultimate Comfort Mattress Pad (with an average of 4.8/5 stars in 69 reviews) and the Plush Wool Fleece Pad that’s both cushiony and moisture wicking. For more help picking the perfect mattress pad, our article on How to Choose the Perfect Mattress Pad and mattress pad video are handy resources.
We’ll have more tips for getting your guest bedroom in tip-top shape soon – stay tuned!
During the wee hours of Sunday, November 3, 2013, daylight savings time ends, gaining us an hour of sleep, at least in our minds. Harvard Medical School discusses why you really don’t gain that hour, and tips on how to adjust your sleep schedule.
In addition, there’s also a rare “hybrid” partial solar eclipse that can be viewed beginning at 5:19 a.m. EST (maximum viewing time is 6:13 a.m. with 61% coverage).
Normally you couldn’t get me out of my cozy, Cuddledown-enhanced bed on a Sunday at that early hour unless there was a fire or some other crisis… however, with the added hour of sleep… perhaps?
The “hybrid” solar eclipse will be visible from the East Coast here, to Europe, all the way to parts of Africa and the Middle East, according to EarthSky.com. The eclipse will begin over North America at sunrise and will move east through sunset on Sunday evening.
Unlike a total eclipse, or an annular eclipse (where the moon covers all but a bright ring around the circumference of the sun), this eclipse is a hybrid. It starts as an annular eclipse before the Moon’s orbit gets close enough to Earth to become a total eclipse. Of course here on the East Coast, we’ll just see a partial eclipse. Of the nearly 12,000 solar eclipses that have occurred since 1999 BC, fewer than five percent are hybrid eclipses, according to a report from Universe Today.
So don’t forget to turn your clock back when you go to bed (by 2:00 a.m. on Sunday). And if you are an early bird, or would love to see the rarely-occurring eclipse, either stay up, or get up early and enjoy (with safe viewing glasses of course – whatever you do, do NOT look directly at the eclipse!)
