SHOOTING FOR THE STARS…
For the second consecutive year, Blush Silks, a Brandon-based company renowned for its luxury silk pillowcases and accessories, has secured a place in the prestigious "Everyone Wins" Nominee Gift Bag. This exclusive collection will be independently presented to top Oscar nominees up for awards in the five major categories at the 96th Annual Academy Awards set for March 10th.
Each nominee will receive a custom white box embossed with their name in gold lettering that will contain a Blush Silks pillowcase in either Lotus or Onyx and paired with a matching silk hair tie. These sets are accompanied by a personalized note from Christine Steele, the company's founder and CEO. Another 35 pillowcases will be distributed to media outlets for national coverage during Oscar week.
"It's just as thrilling as last year. For a small business like ours, achieving a spot in the world’s most iconic gift bag is a rare feat. The thought of stars such as Jodie Foster, Ryan Gosling, and Bradley Cooper using my products was once unfathomable", says Steele.
The 22nd Annual "Everyone Wins" Nominee Gift Bag, curated by L.A.'s Distinctive Assets, showcases luxury items in gift bags valued at six figures, presented to top nominees in Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Director, and to the host, Jimmy Kimmel.
Some of the stars who are on this year’s gift list include:
· Robert De Niro
· Bradley Cooper
· Emma Stone
· Robert Downey Jr.
· Ryan Gosling
· Annette Bening
· Martin Scorsese
· Emily Blunt
· America Ferrera
· Jodie Foster
Rapidly expanding, Blush Silks retails through its website and over 50 stores across Canada and the United States. Their signature pillowcases, crafted from the highest quality 100% pure mulberry silk, offer hypoallergenic and temperature-regulating properties. They reduce facial creases and hair frizz compared to traditional pillowcases, and don't dehydrate skin or hair. Steele emphasizes, "On average we spend 2,500 hours per year sleeping. Investing in a silk pillowcase will substantially improve the health of skin and hair. The benefits of a silk pillowcase are undeniable.”
In the last year, Blush Silks has extended their products to custom-printed hair accessories including designs for artists, events such as National Truth and Reconciliation Day, paw print designs to raise funds for local animal rescues and custom prints for boutiques, universities, sports teams, and dance clubs.
