At the beginning of last year I did a ‘What’s on my bedside table?‘ post and I really enjoyed writing it and sharing a little insight into my pre-bedtime life. I loved that little table but in the last couple of years it’s had tea split on it, been chipped and generally has not survived as well as I’d hoped (I bought the table at an auction and sanded and painted it so it’s had to be retired). When I was looking for a new bedside table I decided that it would be great to have one with drawers so I could tidy away all of my books and beauty bits that I like to have to hand, and after a lot of searching I decided on this one from World Stores. The top surface is perhaps not the best match for our bedroom but I love the cream and bamboo and thought I could store a lot in the drawers (I’m always searching for new storage possibilities!)
I’ve tidied most of the things into the drawers so all I have on the top now is my Neom Love Candle* (review to follow), my little wooden seagull picture and a couple of bits I like to have to hand when I get into bed – my Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery, This Works Pillow Spray and Stress Less and a mini CND Solar Oil for my nails.
I used to keep all my chargers in a bag under the table and it looked a right mess, so now I’ve tidied them into a box and tucked them away in a drawer. Also in my top drawer is my Benefit Sleep Mask.
Next drawer down is for books I’m reading or ones that are next on the list. I’m currently reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed and really enjoying it, it’s our current Book Club book.
The final drawer is beauty bits I sometimes use before bed, including Pai Rosehip Oil, Dr Hauschka Eye Balm and Etat Pur Micellar Water. And my iPod Shuffle which has cheekily nipped into the box!
My wooden heart and the hanging beach huts my Mum made me for my last birthday (she is too clever!) hang above my bedside table and always make me smile.
What’s in or on your bedside table?
