We've been working particularly hard at the Benson office to put together a selection of fun, affordable and unique beach towels ready for Xmas gifts. Our beach towels are starting from a very affordable $20.

Beautiful Bedheads

No! We're not talking about the human type. We're talking about the ones that can make or break a room.

We now live in a world were most people take pride in their home and especially their bedroom, and so they should!! It's where we spend most of our time relaxing. During our research we came across these fabulous ideas for bedheads. Check them out and tell us what you think.

We just love the antique mirror. How absolutely stunning!

Spring has sprung and with it comes the annual Spring Clean! 
Have you found most of your fitted sheets shoved into the back of your linen cupboard. Are they Folded or Scrunched. There really is nothing worse than sleeping on wrinkled clean sheets... but how do we keep our bedlinen looking crisp and clean? Well, we could hire a cleaner to do it, but that just gets too expensive.

Here is a great instructional video we found on youtube  . Now you'll be folding fitted sheets like a pro!

Well, after a big weekend with the family we dedicate this blog to all the Fathers out there. Did you managed to find the perfect fathers day gift? Below is the top 5 fathers from the animal kingdom.

Say hello to Number 5. He may be green and slimy, but he's a great dadPerhaps no group of animals contains so many dedicated fathers as frogs and toads. There are frog fathers that carry their tadpoles in their mouths, often refusing to eat until the tadpoles are old enough to survive on their own. Wow! Whata  great dad! 

Ok, we know Number 4 isn't the prettiest of dads, but the daddy lumpsucker certainly makes up for it never ending love and loyalty. This dad will often look over his young until they are born, even if that means getting in the odd battle with the local predator 

We think our next prize winning daddy is just the greatest. Number 3 our little buddy the Seahorse spends 45 days incubating the eggs and will also experience contractions as they give birth. Let's hear it for the seahorse laddies!! 

He might look nasty, but he is a big softy. Number 2 is our Giant water bug. Those aren't ordinary lumps on the back of this male water bug — those are his children! Giant water bugs display the most dedicated paternal care in the insect world by carrying the eggs on their wings until they hatch.

which brings us to the number one dad in the animal kingdom. Drum roll please!!! Sitting at Number 1 is a father that wins the trophy of all trophies in the animal kingdom. It's our very good friend the Emperor penguin. For those of you who didn't grow up watching David Attenborough documentaries, you'll see this father tops them all. Even putting his own life at risk to care for his young. Thank you Dad, from all of us.

Spring Entertaining ideas.

With spring almost on our doorstep all the busy bees in our office are talking Pool Parties, BBQs and entertaining. Here are our Staff picks for favourite entertaining ideas!

At number 5, we have Vegan Dads Cantaloupe Sorbet. It's amazing refreshing. We give this one the big thumbs up!

With number 4, you can't go past candle lantern bags. These look amazing around the pool and are great for keeping the mozzies away! 

Number 3 comes in with a great alternative and environmentally friendly decorating idea. Party Pom Poms. We love them and wish we could have them hanging in our office everywhere!

Number 3 has us gobbling up sweet spring Cupcakes. Check out these cute bundles of goodness! Yummie!

And now for Number 1. The last but certainly not the least, no party is complete without your super icy super sexy strawberry Margarita! Happy BBQing everyone!

Spring is in the Air 
It's really starting to warm up here in Sydney... and we all know what that means! It's time to throw off the heavy wool blankets and wooly sheets and get into SOFT CRISP cotton sateens. To celebrate the new season we've marked down ALL our 1000+ Pure Cotton Sateen sheet sets and Quilt cover sets.
A huge range of colours available with Queen at $84.00. It's a crazy price.

Also keeping in the spirit of throwing off the old heavy blankets, we think it's time you update the towel cupboard. Bensons new Day Spa range has a wonderful selection of bright colours towels. The mega bath sheet can also be used as a beach towel. Summers not far away.

Here are a few handy tips when caring for your bath towels. At Benson, we also recommend you wash your towels in a wool wash rather than a harsh detergent. Wool washes will keep your towels feeling soft, won't fade colours and keep then smelling sweet. Do you have any handy tips or secrets when caring for your favourite bedlinen?
