DIY SLEEP EYE MASK TUTORIAL

DIY Sleep Mask

Summer means light late nights and early mornings, and if you don't have blackout blinds, you'll find it difficult to sleep. Comfortable fabric eye masks are a God-send, so I wanted to show you how to make your own with just a little bit of fabric and some ribbon.

2 SILICONE SONIC FACIAL CLEANSING DEVICES YOU NEED TO TRY

Silicone Facial Cleansing Devices

As you'll know from the several I've featured, I do like to use a facial cleansing brush or device when cleansing my face. I've previously stuck to brushes (see my review of the Clinique one here and the Braun one here), but at the moment, I'm really into silicone devices. I wanted to share with you two that I'm loving - one is perfect for travel and the other is a multi-purpose device that's a bathroom saviour.

STATIONERY & OFFICE HAUL

Stampin' Up Watercolour Wishes Card Kit

You all know about my obsession with stationery. I buy it literally all the time, but I always forget to leave things in their packaging and not use them long enough to photograph for a blog post. Over the couple of weeks however, I've accumulated quite a lot at once, so I decided to bundle everything together to show you in a haul post.
