My favorite place to wear an eye mask is when I am traveling on a long plane or train ride.  I spend much of my travel time exploring that I am exhausted by the time I check in for travel.  The pilot takes off and once in the air, I am excited to put on an eye mask to block the bright light and take a power nap.

On one of my travel adventures to NYC, I was walking in Soho planning to do a little shopping.  As I was walking, trying to locate a particular store I got pulled in by a lady selling body scrubs.  I love a good body or hand scrub, because it makes the skin ultra feel soft.  After spending more than an hour in the store experiencing various lotions and scrubs, I was convinced and purchased a skin silkening scrub, accompanied with scented lotion.
