If you’re like me and get woken up by the sun every morning, a good sleep mask is a real essential. But what’s a girl to do when all the ones out there are boring, bland or crude? Simple. Get yourself a replica of Holly Golightly‘s sleep mask. Ok, so you won’t look like Audrey Hepburn by the next morning but you will look ‘very good’ while you sleep.
1. Fred Flare’s fluttery Holly Golightly sleep mask
What better way to add a little beauty to your beauty sleep? This gorgeous sleep mask from super-sweet US shop Fred Flare is satin-lined and comes with fluttery fake-eyelashes stuck on – very much like the original. Unfortunately Fred Flare no longer do US to UK shipping but you can either beg Americans you know to buy you one or set yourself up with the mail forwarding service AccessUSA, who’ll set you up with your very own American address!
2. Breakfast at Tiffany’s sleep mask from Figleaves
Can’t wait for delivery from the good old US of A? Figleaves do have an almost ‘Holly Golightly’ sleep-mask. Sadly without the fabulous eyelashes but it does have sequins which almost make up for it.
3. Make your own sleep mask with Lady Luck Rules OK
If you have a Holly Golightly style budget then invest in Around The World In 13 Makes. It’s a huge bumper pack of fab make-and-dos, including making your own pink sleep mask with felt eyelashes. I just bought mine the other day so if I can make it so can you! As well as the mask, you’ll also get step-by-step instructions on how to make 13 ace accessories – and you get ALL the super cute charms, ace findings, brill buttons, fancy fabric and bits ‘n’ bobs you need to make them all. Brilliant for those of us who breakfast at Starbucks, not Tiffany’s!
