This is a post I've been meaning to write for a while now but never seem to have got round to; it's been moved from list to list of posts to write & photos to take, but I've finally decided enough is enough, so here you can have a little peek at what I keep on my bedside table - if that's the sort of thing that interests you! I have to admit it's not normally this tidy - I did have to put away four nail polishes and wipe up several mug rings before I took this photo...
Bedside Table
The little purple lamp is from Wilkinson's and was about £4, I got it about three years ago I think! I always have hand cream and lip balm by my bed so that hopefully I remember to apply them before going to sleep; currently, we're looking at Neal's Yard Geranium & Orange Hand Cream, and The Body Shop's Shea Lip Butter. I also have a sample of Badger Cuticle Balm which I sometimes remember to use and sometimes don't. I really like this, though, and am thinking I'll buy a full-size at some point! I also keep a little stack of reading material next to my bed; at the moment, we have this month's InStyle magazine, along with my Kindle and two books I purchased recently - Love, Nina by Nina Stibbe and Never Saw It Coming by Linwood Barclay. I used to be really bad for getting into bed and playing on my phone for an hour, but recently I'm making more of an effort to read instead, which is really nice. Finally, we have my little Pied à Terre candle* which I posted about here, which is lovely to light for an hour or so while I relax with a book of an evening. What do you keep next to your bed at night? Anything you think is missing from my bedside table?

  1. I too keep my Kobo (another e-reader) by my bed along with some other books. I'm hoping to change my desk soon as that is right by my bed, hopefully it will give me some more space.
