We’re kicking off 2020 with a little look at…our bedside tables!
This is mine 🙂 .
Anyone else sleep on the left side of the bed? Isn’t it funny how you have a side? I’m the lefty in this relationship. As you can see, sweet Poppy is too. She sleeps in her little bed often throughout the day and then always, always, always “puts herself to sleep” sometime around 9 no matter what we’re doing in the house. She also always wakes up with me at 4:10 every morning too. Frenchie is our late sleeper, but Poppy likes to rise and shine with Andrew and me. I keep her bed next to my bedside table and then also my yoga mat. I find that if I keep it there, I’ll use it more often. Please also note, lampshades are the bane of my existence. See the one in the mirror? Why is it crooked? I feel like I walk around and straighten lampshades at least 400 times a day. #urg
I used to keep books piled HIGH on my bedside table (and they would often spill onto the floor), but now that I exclusively use a Kindle, it’s much tidier up there. I do keep some of my favorite books stacked there (with my Kindle Paperwhite on top).
On one side of my bed, I have my diffuser. Andrew has one too on his side, and we use the same combination (Thieves and lavender) each night from YoungLiving. I’ve said this a billion times, but these are THE BEST diffusers!! They’re inexpensive, they have a light with about 15 different color options or you can turn the light off and keep things dark. I love it because it diffuses intermittently for about 12 hours!! I also keep Laneige lip stuff on my bedside table too. It says it’s to be used at night for super hydration, but I use it all throughout the day. Beside that is the remote for our Sleep Number bed. This is the best purchase Andrew and I have ever made. You can read my review on it from three years ago HERE.
I don’t always burn a candle in my room (because I love the diffuser smell), but when I do (when I’m home all day), I love burning vanilla scents. There is just a random vanilla candle in there from Bath and Body Works.
I like to keep our bedding neutral and then we always, always, always sleep with flannel sheets. This winter, we’re using these from Pottery Barn.
Inside the top drawer you will find a bunch of random books, fake glasses, an old Kindle cover and what appears to be a pillowcase. I should probably take 10 minutes and sort that drawer out, right?! 😉
Inside the second drawer, a few sweaters and yoga accessories (the third drawer also has some sweaters).
So, that’s a look at my bedside table. A good book and lip stuff is a must for me! What’s a bedside must for you??? I’d love to know!!
That’s it for our first edition of Let’s Look 2020! Next month, we’re looking at our winter wardrobes! xo
