The Current Bedside Situation + Routine

One of my favourite parts of the day is winding down with a book and a cuppa in bed, and the lazy girl in me also likes to combine the end of my skincare routine with this ritual. I have a little one-drawer bedside table from Kmart that Mister put together and it's filled with my nightly skincare options; some anti-acne bits to deal with the breakout I'm currently struggling through (Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion + La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo+*) my eye cream (Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Eye*) and the new moisturiser I'm trialling (Philosophy Renewed Hope in a Jar Dry*)

I keep my room mists and pillow sprays on my bedside table to remind myself to use them, they're both from L'Occitane and my favourite is most definitely the Lavande cologne* which settles me into my PM routine nicely. Every night I bring a steaming hot mug of Madame Flavour Mint Choc Rooibos into bed with me (or a Jarrah Coconut Hot Chocolate if I'm feeling crazy!) and either watch some YouTube videos with my headphones in (planner videos or nail polish ones like this are my favourite at the moment!) or read a good book. Right now I'm reading The Other Side of the World by Stephanie Bishop which is a 2015 release and so far I'm really enjoying it - her way of writing is very beautiful and feels quite melancholic to me, so I'm glad I picked this one up at my local library for something different.

I'd love to know what you keep in your bedside drawer and what your nightly rituals are? Is it common for people to apply their nightly creams in bed? Do you watch TV or YouTube before you sleep or does that hinder your sleeping?

  1. Lovely products :)
    My eyes were immediately drawn to that clear cube with the amazing jewelry :D
    On my bed side table I have a hand cream, lip balm and some books oh and a lamp :)
    I always put on hand cream in bed but the rest I do in the bath room.
    We are usually always so tired when we go to bed so we never watch anything but falls asleep almost immediately. We chat about the day, check our phones and then fall asleep ;)

    1. Thanks Anna - I keep a stack of my costume and most worn jewellery in that glass box, it's cute isn't it? We don't have a TV in the room but because Mister likes to go to bed earlier than me we hang out before I watch YouTube until I'm sleepy, it is the most relaxing part of my day :)
