When it comes to my bedside table there are a few products that I always have on hand and some lifestyle pieces too.
The two beauty pieces I always have by my bed are the Glossier Balm Dotcom and Zoella Winter Wonder Hand Hand Cream. The Glossier Balm Dotcom is the perfect lip balm to apply just before bed. It has quite a thick consistency that leaves your lips feeling soft and hydrated the next day. I use the original balm Dotcom at night and it works wonders.
I always find during the day my hands can become quite dry so just before bed I apply the Zoella Winter Wonder Hand Hand Cream to allow all the moisture and shea butter to sink in over night and work it’s magic. I love the formulation of this hand cream, its quite thick but sinks in quickly without leaving a greasy residue. This hand cream smells amazing too, with its Peony and refreshing mint notes, and has helped stop my hands from becoming very dry from all the cold weather.
Once I have read my book I spray the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, which is amazing and completely relaxing, so you fall asleep quickly. I love using this when I have had a stressful day and need a little extra help falling asleep. When I spray this on my pillow its like I have walked into a field of lavender, my Husband always asks for some too now. I don’t tend to use this everyday, but if you have problems falling asleep then why not try this product. You can also get the Sleep Plus Pillow Spray, which is great if you wake up at night and can’t get back to sleep, as it releases more lavender when you move to scent you back to sleep.
Candles & Flowers
I love having fresh flowers in the bedroom, it adds a pop of colour in the room, and always looks really nice. I usually go for carnations as they last for about four weeks before wilting and they are scented, which I prefer in the bedroom. If you don’t want to keep buying flowers then why don’t you get a plant instead, here’s some ideas of which ones you might like Incorporating Plants into your Home.
Before I get into bed I like to light a candle and have it burning on my bedside table. My current favourite is the Zoella Lazy Days Candle, it’s has a lovely cosy scent that isn’t too overpowering. I need my bedroom to be a cosy and inviting environment for me to be able to sleep well so having a candle burning before I go to bed helps me create this space.
When I get into bed I like to reading a book before going to sleep. For Christmas I received The Working Woman’s Handbook by Phoebe Lovatt and have really enjoyed reading a little bit every night to help motivate me to try and make my dreams become a reality. This book is perfect for anyone who needs that extra push or guidance in the right direction to start their own business from the very beginning.
The items I have on my bedside table change with the seasons but these are my winter essentials.
