Well, one thing that I've noticed other than the fact that my late night addiction to corny Nancy Drew games does not help sleep, is that if I can keep my eyes closed, I fall asleep faster, longer. One night, in the dark, I resorted to tying my son's robe belt around my eyes. Fearing inadvertent strangulation, I soon found a sleep mask.
Not just any sleep mask though...a playful, gorgeous, cozy one that is what I aspire to someday become...
Appendage Accessories makes many different really cool looking sleep masks. I chose the sloth because ever since my pilgrimage to Costa Rica, I have been in love with them. My husband seems to think I was one in a former life, because of my tendency toward sleep and my need for lazing around. I however, aspire to become a sloth. They are really chill, great mothers, good swimmers and are pretty darn adorable!
I love that this mask is pliable. It contours your face nicely. They are HAND DRAWN! Isn't that amazing--then printed, of course. She doesn't drawn on each one. That would be crazy. She'd need a sleep mask for all that hard work! The adjustable elastic band makes this a great score for any head, and as a bonus, all of the masks have eyes that pierce onlookers. So, on a plane or another public place you appear to be gazing through the eyes of an animal, which guarantees undisturbed sleep! (Bonus for mama's because it trips out your children as well. They think it's just the coolest thing! At least, mine does!)
Get your own Appendage Sloth (or other critter) sleep mask at the Appendage Accessories Etsy shop--they retail for about $26.50. Make sure to check out my Mama's Got a Brand New Look event page for your chance to win a gift certificate to the Appendage Accessories shop!
