Le Neko Noir [Review + Choice of Sleep Mask Giveaway]

I am very glad that I have stumbled across Le Neko Noir. This adorable shop features cute items that are unique and handmade by the lovely Annie- including sleep eye masks, lunch bags, and accessories. The charming woodland creature sleep masks are the first thing that had attracted to me to this shop, and after that I realized I basically love ALL of the whimsical creations at Le Neko Noir. Choosing an item to review was definitely a welcome challenge. Let me show you some of my personal favorites before sharing my up-close-and-personal experience with a handlebar mustache sleep mask from Le Neko Noir, as well as telling you about the giveaway!
 
 
  
 

 I'm a vegetarian, so I definitely adore that sweet bag!
They have an omnivore one too, for you meat-eaters. ;)



I had the pleasure of reviewing a fancy mustache sleep mask.
Mine has a light blue background with a black 'stache.




Annie is such a delight to transact with. She told me about how the inspiration to create these particular sleep masks came to her. She said "I had a dream about faux moustaches and woke up in the middle of the night as a result. I went to the couch and cut out the mustache and then hand stitched it before morning. So I guess it came to me in an epiphany." Wearing this sleep mask definitely won't have me waking up early (I slept like a baby). I have never felt such a soft mask. It makes it comfortable to wear and is not irritating or bothersome. Le Neko Noir sleep masks are adjustable too- for the perfect fit on any head. The quirky and stylish element is most definitely a plus. Who knows who you will end up meeting in your dreams.

These would make great gifts for those people that seem to have everything. 
I don't think anyone can fail to smile when they see these masks.

aluckyhorseshoe [Review + $25 Gift Certificate Giveaway]

 

Aluckyhorseshoe is a shop featuring beautiful, quality vinyl wall art and decals. This shop has so much to choose from, to match any sort of home decor or other surfaces you would like to spice up (boring laptop, anyone?). The styles vary from cute and simple to large and elegant. Aluckyhorseshoe shop also includes lovely drawings and photography of horses and wildlife. Besides their terrific collection, I love that that a portion of sales gets donated to Serenity Equine Rescue and Rehabilitation. 
Guess what? My readers have the chance to choose something of their own desire! Just keep reading for a chance to win a gift certificate to this terrific shop.
Here are some of my favorites from aluckyhorseshoe:

That stunning decorative chandelier you are looking at is the piece that I reviewed. It arrived in lighting speed, in safe tubed packaging along with a helpful sheet of directions and an extra little vinyl bird to practice with. Following the instructions, I applied the feathered creature to the side of my desk. It went smoothly and looks great! The practice decal is a terrific idea, especially if you have never applied a vinyl decal before. It gets you ready and accustomed to the process. Then came the chandelier... it was much larger than the avian decal and seemed a bit daunting at first, but after just a few minutes of my precision- VOILA. The gorgeous, detailed chandelier hugs my slightly textured wall wonderfully. That one slice of wall that seemed so bare to me before is now elegant and stylish. My mother came into my room, walked up to the chandelier and had her hand out trying to touch it before she realized it was 2-dimensional and stuck to a wall. Not kidding, it looks awesome.

And there is my birdy. ^.^

Now for what you have been waiting for...
