DIY Sleep Mask + Favorite Beauty Tip

Guess what all the ladies on my Christmas list are getting this year? A sleep mask! Ok, ok, not exactly groundbreaking, I know. But I’m also giving them my new favorite thing – a silk pillowcase. A beauty trick I just learned from my hairdresser, the pillowcase is a miracle for morning hair. It feels amazing AND you don’t wake up with hair standing straight up. This is life changing for a gal with high voltage hair every morning!

The sleep mask design is straight from my obsession with Criminal Minds. (Though I seriously don’t recommend watching that show late at night.) Tech goddess Garcia sported this mask and I had to have it! So order a few pillowcases and whip up a few masks – it’s super easy!
