Good night, sleep tight.

There are two types of people: those who could sleep through a hurricane and light sleepers who wake up at the faintest sound or flicker of a light.

Unfortunately, I fall under the second category. The minute I catch a glimpse of sunlight (even if it's at 6 a.m. on a Saturday), I'm up for good.

So when I discovered this comfy Bucky 40 Blinks eye mask, it basically changed my life. It's $10, which is a very small price to pay to sleep like a baby for the rest of your life.

It's basically a wearable, portable blackout shade. It molds right to your face to keep out any light, which for me, is crucial. It's also super light-weight and comfy — tbh, I don't even notice that I'm wearing it while I sleep. It also comes in about two dozen different colors and funky patterns.

This is a picture of me and one of my BFFs, Leah. She bought me my first Bucky eye mask back in college. As a fellow light sleeper, she swore by it... and she was right.

It may not be the most ~stylish~ accessory, but it works like a charm. Leah promised me that it would help me sleep better, and it seriously has ever since.

I've had my Bucky for five years now, and it's honestly one of the best things I own.

It's traveled with me from college in Providence, Rhode Island to two different apartments in New York City. It's also been around world with me from Barcelona to Buenos Aires. It's the first thing I pack in my carry-on bag when I travel because I pretty much can't sleep without it.

As you can see, my trusty Bucky has gone through a fair amount of wear and tear.

That's because it also doubles as a chew toy for my dog when I leave it unguarded, but I love my original Bucky so much I refuse to get a new one.

Get it from Amazon or Jet for $9.99 (available in 22 patterns).
