What’s On My Bedside Table

I try to keep the situation on my bedside table pretty simple. You can see just a couple of products that I use before going to bed because I do my evening skincare routine much earlier.

The most important thing for me is to apply lip balm because night is the time when we don’t drink and eat and it can stay on my lips for at least 6 hours. It’s the best time to nourish my lips and usually I keep a thick lip treatment near me. Origins Lip Remedy contains menthol and camphor which means it feels cooling on the lips. It’s really soothing and although the scent can be pretty strong and the consistency reminds me of a body lotion, I really like this product as an overnight treatment.

Next up is the foot cream and we all feel ashamed to talk about feet. I have to admit that I’m a little bit lazy with my feet mainly because I don’t like the sticky feeling of a lotion or a cream on this part of my body. Luckily, Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Cream absorbs quickly, smells amazing and nourishes my feet during the night.

I always keep a body lotion on my bedside table in case I’ve missed this step after taking a shower. I just love Roger & Gallet Fleur d’Osmanthus Revitalising Sorbet because it has a divine scent, it’s lightweight but moisturising at the same time and you can read my review on it here.

Soap & Glory’s Hand Food is one of my favourite hand creams and I can never get bored of the smell. Lovely product along with their hand scrubs. I usually ”wash” my hands with the scrub before going to bed and then apply a thick layer of the hand cream.

The tiny travel bottle with no name, no colour, no nothing is actually a mixture of oils. I have sleeping problems and this little guy helps me feel calmer and sleep better. And although there are many oils inside, it actually smells of mandarins, it’s very fresh and nice.

Usually reading is part of my night routine, I like to read before falling asleep and using my Kindle is the most comfortable way to do it. I was a little bit negative at the beginning but I can give you so many reasons to try such device now. We all love the smell of paper books but we can save many trees by using this or similar little thing, you can carry it everywhere with you and you can load hundreds of books…

What’s your bedside stash?

We Have Moved!

The last couple of months have been quite busy and stressful for me and my boyfriend but we finally have a new home and each day I like it more and more.

I’m trying to make the place look more cosy and warm but we definitely need more time to complete our ideas. Here I’m showing you just a few  favourite spots for the moment.

Starting off with the kitchen because I spend a lot of time there, it’s my favourite place, I love cooking but even if I’m not cooking, I just feel good being there. I’m a fan of rustic kitchen types but here it seems this is the hardest thing to find (not that I don’t like Scandinavian style but I just prefer it warmer looking), so I’m trying to make it seem closer to what I like by adding small items.

Herbs and flowers have big part in my heart and I’m really happy that now we have a balcony which can welcome our outdoor plants.

Keep your fingers crossed for us because there is still a lot work to be done!
