I admit, I am a nosy girl… I love to know what people carry in their bags, or wallets, or what is on their nightstands. So I was thinking last night about that and I said, why not share what is on my nightstand. It is an eclectic assortment, for sure, but it is what comforts me and that is what keeps me happy. I am really into my oils lately, so we can start there.
I have my Young Living diffuser on hand and pretty much on as long as I am in the house. Even if I am not in the bedroom, I have it on, so that when I do go in, whatever oil I am diffusing is serving its purpose. It is sitting on the Mom’s One Line a Day book that I try to scrawl into before bed for my daughter. I was horrible at keeping a baby book, so I think this is my way of making it up to her. In front of that I have a pear light that one of my oldest friends got for me. I love pears and when my husband and I got married, our theme was “The Perfect Pair.” Everyone needs a tissue box on their nightstand, enough said for that one. I also keep a mirror being that I am so superstitious and I read somewhere that if you have bad dreams they will get trapped in the mirror, so I have an antique mirror on my nightstand where they can get trapped if they do so.
Who doesn’t need an adorable coaster for the obligatory glass of water I sip from during the night. I have a stack of books that are there always there for a quick reference or a read, if I am not too tired. Of course I also have some oils to diffuse and rub into my hands at night before bed. I have my new trusty nightlight, which let me tell you, was AMAZING this morning. It gradually woke me up and I was in such a good mood.
I got up and took my vitamins and prepared my daughter’s lunch and some things to take with me as well today. Took my oils and tea and was ready to get my day started. Let’s hope that this will work again tomorrow and I can be as chipper then as well. I normally trudge around the house growling at people in the morning. And last but not least, my humidifier. I need it to breathe. I dry up so horridly in the winter.
What do you keep on your nightstand?
There’s Beauty in Everyone…
