Glamour Guide: The Fine Art of Beauty Sleep

I am decidedly NOT one of those "I'll sleep when I dead!" kind of people.  No, I'll sleep as much as I want, thank you!  Hey, you have your vices, I'll have mine.  It's been said a million times before, but a beautiful face is one that's well rested.  There really is something to the notion of beauty sleep!  We've all read tons of guides out there on how to get a good night's rest: turn off the computer and TV before bed, develop a nighttime ritual, go to sleep and wake up at the same time everyday, yeah, yeah, we know.  What those guides don't tell you is how to get your beauty sleep glamorously and in style!

So you want a glamorous nighttime ritual?  Start by slipping into a gorgeous silk and lacy chemise that feels cool and soft against your skin.  Get the matching robe for extra elegance!  This nourishing Healthy Body Butter from Lavanila is an excellent way to moisturize and relax; it's lavender and vanilla scented for extra soothing properties.  Nothing could be more decadent than spritzing your sheets with rose scented linen spray like this one from Grab Green!  It's so much easier to fall asleep surrounded by calming scents, don't you think?  Hop into bed and curl up with a soft fuzzy blanket to complete this full-on glamorous sensory bedtime experience.  Finally, block out any light with this sleep mask modeled after the one Audrey Hepburn wore as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's! 

 Sweet dreams, lovelies!  Zzzzz....
