Lunya Sleepwear - make the cut

Make The Cut

Our premium sleepwear is the cumulation of thoughtful and intentional design, helping you sleep better and bring purpose to every hour of the day. Our Organic Pima exemplifies just this, with luxurious natural textiles that have extraordinary softness and breathability - we’ve designed these pieces to personalize, so you can customize the length and look.     Measure the Cut   1. Try on your garment and determine new desired length. 2. Be sure to add an extra inch for the first cut to give yourself some extra room. We suggest adding an extra inch for the first cut to give yourself some room to adjust. 3. With a small piece of tape or pin mark your cutting area. Be sure to mark each side of the leg or sleeve to ensure an even line.   Make the Cut    1. On a flat surface, lay the garment out. (For the best cut, be sure the fabric is flat and evenly laid out). 2. Begin to cut! We recommend using fabric scissors or high quality scissors with a very sharp blade. (Be sure you are making clean cuts all the way through the blade and begin a new cut —don't let the fabric bunch or it will not cut evenly.) 3. Try on your newly cut sleepwear and determine if the new length is a good fit. If you prefer to go shorter, repeat the steps above.       Congrats, girl. You made the cut. Now show it off and show us what you got! Tag your photos @lunya *Cut wisely, all personalized pieces will be yours to keep. Shop more from our Organic Pima Collection.     
What I learned from a week of juicing day and night

What I Learned From A Week Of Juicing Day and Night

by Ashley Merrill, Founder + CEO   Juice has been getting a lot of talk these days. Kale this, spinach that. And who could forget dandelion greens and fennel?! We already know about most of the health benefits of juice: detoxification, reducing inflammation, weight loss. But the Lunya Team took a trip down to our favorite cold pressed juicery in Santa Monica, Orchard Flats, to learn more about what juice can do for our daily routines. For a week, I tried a juice during different times of the day to see how it affected my energy.   Monday Morning: After a weekend filled with red wine and pumpkin desserts, I was ready for a healthy start to my week and looking for something to get me back on track. I skipped my morning coffee and asked the Orchard Flat’s team for a morning pick me up. They suggested Groundworks 1, a mix of beet, yam, carrot, bell pepper, beet greens, celery and ginger. Because of the root vegetable base, this juice acts as a strong detoxifier and also a meal replacement.   Breakfast is served!     Aftermath: While not quite as filling as my standard scrambled eggs and avocado breakfast, I can happily report (as can my coworkers, I don’t do well when “hangry,”) that this roots-based drink filled me up till lunch. The juice has a strong beet flavor, with carrot adding some sweetness and finishing with a perfect ginger kick.   Tuesday Evening: After a long day and a nighttime yoga class, I was looking for something to help ease me into sleep. I went for a mix of the watermelon and mint juice.  Because of the vitamins in watermelon (C, A, B6), watermelon juice makes for a great post workout drink that aides in recovery and muscle soreness. The mint helps to promote digestion and is also very soothing, perfect for a nighttime drink. Added bonus: while as sweet as dessert, this juice only has 2 grams of sugar in the bottle! Guilt free.   Aftermath: Snoozefest USA…. I sipped this drink post-shower and was down for the count within an hour. Slipped on my Lunya PJs, curled up with Lena Dunham’s new book and hit the hay!    Wednesday Afternoon: Happy hump day! 1 pm on a Wednesday. Officially halfway through the week, I desperately needed something to get me through the afternoon. I don’t like drinking coffee after lunch, so a green tea sounded like the perfect option.    Aftermath: The China Green Tea was a light, but effective pick me up to get through Wednesday afternoon. As a bonus, the sweetness of the pineapple & honey made it a great afternoon treat.     Thursday Evening: After a day of meals on the go, (including lunch in my car…) I really wanted to incorporate greens into my night. Looking for a juice to help me unwind, I went for the Greens 4, which lists ginger as a key ingredient. Commonly used in tea, ginger is known for its relaxing, stress-relieving properties.   Aftermath: While the juice was a delicious, healthy way to end my evening, it wasn’t enough to put me to sleep. I made a cup of valerian root tea to seal the deal with my evening of slumber.       Friday Morning: TGIF. Getting out of bed today was slightly painful, and I couldn’t be happier it’s almost the weekend. After three straight days of a two shot Americano, I wanted to switch up my morning beverage in a lighter, but still caffeinated way.     Aftermath: Though not as strong as my usual AM caffeine boost, the Almond Milk Latte was insane. There is really no other way to describe it. The cinnamon, date, and vanilla bean ingredients make this drink feel like dessert for breakfast and almost too good to be true. This juice was everything I needed to get through the end of my Friday to the start of the weekend!      Will leave you with a recipe of my favorite pre-bedtime juice, loaded with magnesium, which helps promote relaxation, from the kale, romaine and celery.   And of course, a touch of ginger for a relaxing and delicious finish. Best made using a masticating juicer!    Night Time Relaxation Juice Recipe:  3 stalks organic celery 1 cup organic kale 1 cup organic romaine lettuce  2 organic oranges 1 organic lemon 1 inch piece of fresh ginger  Instructions:  Place all ingredients through juicer, stir, and sip!
How Lunya Was Born

How Lunya Was Born

I couldn't be more proud to introduce you to Lunya. Lunya is more than a woman's sleepwear company, it's the self actualization of a lifelong dream.    As Diane Von Furstenberg once said, "I didn't know what I wanted to do, but I always knew the woman I wanted to be." I love the multifaceted opportunities and challenges afforded by modern womanhood; I wanted to be a mother, a wife, and a businesswoman.  My dream was to be an entrepreneur (how lucky to combine your passion and job into one thing?) but until I created Lunya I thought I would never find the project that I could pour myself into so completely.    The idea for Lunya practically hit me over the head some 3 years ago. I walked past the mirror and happened to glance at my outfit and almost laughed out loud at myself. I was wearing my husband's boxer briefs and his oversized t-shirt. I thought to myself... perhaps this is what it looks like when you "let yourself go"? It sent me on a journey for something that would be both attractive and comfortable and... "me".    Everything I found fell short. Lingerie felt like I was trying too hard to look sexy, which made the whole thing awkward (I'm married and want to be sexy, but in more of an effortless, less push-up-bra-baby-doll kind of way). I also found plenty of frumpy options. Not to hate on plaid, but nothing says I've hung up my sex life like an oversize head-to-toe PJ set in holiday plaid.    Don't they say to make lemonade of lemons?  From this conundrum, Lunya was born. Though I was sold on this idea, I still sat on it. I sat on it out of fear of failure and a million other excuses I kept reciting to myself. I got in my own way until one day I found out I was pregnant and I realized that it was time to jump.  If I couldn't take the risk without kids there was no way I would with them... so I leaped!     The thing is, I knew nothing about making clothes. I was instantly flung into a world with its own language and rules that I knew nothing about. Little by little, and through an amazing amount of generosity of my friends and their friends, I put one foot in front of the other and began to generate some momentum. Since its inception back in October 2012 Lunya has weathered my hectic business school schedule and the birth of both my children. It has been the little engine that could even when I thought there wasn't a chance that it would.    Lunya today is much more than me. It is a team of passionate people who believe in creating comfortable and flattering sleepwear for the modern woman and a brand that women can trust. I'm proud of what it has become and of the impact each team member has made on Lunya. I sit here with my 11-day-old daughter on my lap and feel grateful that one day I will get to tell her how I was afraid and how I leapt anyway. How Lunya goes beyond fabulous sleepwear but how it is a dream come true and how sometimes when you jump you find out you can fly.
