On my bedside table

I've seen a few of these types of posts recently and because I'm a nosey-bum and like taking a peek into other people's lives I really like them, so I thought I'd share my own.

Bedside table What's on my bedside table?

You probably know by now that my the majority of my great loves in life are the simple pleasures, and an early night with a good book or magazine and a cup of peppermint tea is high on my list.  I used to have tons of magazines piled all over my bedside table as I subscribe to four - The Simple Things, Mollie Makes, Oh Comely and now Country Living too - so I recently moved them all into a magazine rack so they're nice and tidy but I can keep all the latest issues within easy reach.  I've actually not read Country Living before but I was given a subscription as a gift; this is my first issue and I love the Spring colours on the cover, it's certainly helping me beat the post-Christmas blues.

The Kindle Fire HDwas a Christmas gift from Tom and I love it.  It's really nice to see all of my books on there (something about scrolling through the covers feels more accessible than the old Kindle) and I can keep up my naughty habit of reading blogs and checking Twitter before bed with much more ease than on my phone.  Of course my phone still has a place on my bedside table though, it's never too far away from me! I'm currently reading a leadership book for work and trying out a few of the recent 99p Kindly Daily Deal purchases.  I'm supposed to be reading  The Slapfor my book club but I'm 15% in and I absolutely hate it so I'm refusing!

I never thought of keeping my mini Caudalie Beauty Elixir on my bedside table until I read Lily's bedside table post and thought it was such a great idea.  Now I give my face a spritz before bed and then put on the Dr. Hauschka Eye Balm - I think it's a 'day balm' but it always makes my eyes feel soothed before bed.  The Dream Cream is there as, now the tattoos on my feet and shins are in the healing stage they're super itchy so I have some on my bedside table to keep them moisturised if they get dry in the night.

I keep my One Line a Day Five-Year Memory Bookon my bedside table in an effort to remind me to fill it in before bed but I'm terrible for remembering.  Must do better with this this year!

The only other things on my bedside table are my little wooden seagull picture and some scented candles to keep the bedroom smelling nice.

What's on your bedside table? If you've done a post like this let me know in the links! (Told you - eternally nosy!)

  2. I love these posts! I am also a nosey-bum. I've thought about doing one on mine, but my bedside table is quite small and all I've currently got on it is a me to you bear, toadstall tealight holder, coaster, kindle and tv remote - not all that interesting!
    I love the look of the kindle fire. I've got the keyboard kindle, which suits me fine, but I wouldn't say no to the fire! :)

  3. This is verrry similar to the collection of loveliness next to my bed, including the one line a day book. I got it for christmas and am doing well so far, but am sure I will slip up soon!!!! Good luck with yours this year!

  4. Thank you so much for writing that you don't always fill your 5 years notebook! I got it last year for Valentine's Day and I am terrible with it! It is sad actually! Good to know I am not only one... ;)

    I actually quite enjoyed The Slap - I like books which tell story from different perspectives and the book has so much to discuss about! :) If you want to cheat a little - there was a short TV series on BBC based on this book and it was really good.

  5. An early night with a cup of peppermint tea and a magazine sounds absolutely perfect. Simple pleasures are quite often the best

  13. I like these kind of posts, I guess I'm just a nosy person :p I would do one of these but I don't have a bedside table :( x

  14. From one nosy person to another, thanks for the post! Your bedside table is so neat - mine is in a frequent state of clutter that at any one time includes magazines, books, hand cream, hair grips/ties, jewellery and, room permitting, a lamp. Might need to give it a spring clean after seeing your pics...

  15. Great idea for a post, I love having a nose at people's lives/houses too! Not sure what that says about me... I might do one of these, although I'll have to tidy up my bedside table a bit first! I'm prety much incapable of not finishing a book, even if I'm not enjoying it. xx

  16. Your bedside table is so tidy! I would love to do a post like this as I like them too, but it would probably be pictures of empty teacups, plates, and things that I don't have a spot for in my house.

  17. i think it's a great idea to move your line a day journal to beside your bed. I'm going to do the same because I always forget too!!

  18. Haha, I really don't know how this can still look organised on your bedside table. If I had that many things on it, it would look a mess! I have a candle and a book there and that's already too much. How do you do that?

  20. I ordered one of the Line a Day books a few weeks ago but it hasn't arrived yet. Bummer! I can't wait to get started on it though.
