Sometimes changing your life for the better starts with changing your perspective; that’s what has happened for me this months as part of #Re2014.

Posted by in CUTE, DIY, Kawaii, Tutorials-Video, watch me

I love my sleeping masks. They are my secret to successful daytime naps, as rare as they are, and also do a marvellous job at securely holding those much needed eye cooling gels.  I always love the way the romantic heroine awakes in bed and peers from beneath those satin hoods.
