Essie's fall 2016 collection captures the city’s wild street style, eclectic cuisine and riot of autumnal colors. The six shade palette of mesmerizing hues channels the changing fall foliage along with the modern and traditional sides of Tokyo’s bustling city.

Review: Bed Sheets by J.R United Industries

A good set of sheets is an integral part of a nice and comfy bed which in turn is a must for a good night's sleep. The Eucalyptus Sheets by J.R. United Industries, that I got to review has clearly become my favorite within a very short span. Their online store, The Factory, has a nice and beautiful collection of not only bedsheets but also towels for bath, pools, and beaches.

J.R. United Industries have two brand names under their wings, Vizcaya and Havana, Vizcaya being the brand for Luxury Hotel Collections and Havana for the Luxury Outdoor collections.

The varieties of bedsheets that they offer are Eucalyptus Sheet Set, Villena Sheet set, and Catalina Sheets and to be brand specific they all fall under the Vizcaya Luxury Hotel collection. 

The sheets had a nice feel from the time I got them out of the package, to washing them and putting them on the bed. They feel nice and crisp and remind me of nice hotel quality sheets. The quality is definitely there and I know they will last a long time before any wear and tear. The king sized sheets also feature a grey piping on the pillow cases was a nice added touch.

All their products are manufactured at their factory in Guatemala.
