I am in love. Not with a hotel, a restaurant, or even a destination. I am in love with my new travel blanket and pillow. They are made by a luxury bedding company called Duxiana and they are heavenly. Now that airlines have started charging for blankets and pillows in coach, bringing your own has become increasingly necessary. I'm not a big fans of the ones that go around your neck or of the thin fleece blankets that catch every fuzz ball within a square mile. So, I was tickled when I discovered these super luxe pieces. The generously sized pillow is feathery down in a soft sateen case and the blanket is a thick weave, super-soft, herringbone, cotton blanket that has the perfect weight. The pillow comes in a handy cloth case with a handle and the blanket folds up neat and tidy. For more info visit Duxiana.
