What's on My Bedside Table

On the weekends, I spend a good portion of my time in my bed. I'll put on my super comfy PJs, grab a book or my laptop and just stay in bed while I just chill. Because of this, I try to keep the table next to my bed organized and clean while maintaining all of my weekend essentials:

  • Power strip: I always plug my phone in at night and oftentimes I plug my iPad or Macbook as well when I'm watching a movie/getting some work done in bed. I need access to a power source at all time. 
  • Aveeno facial wipes: So I try to be good and wipe off my makeup before I go to sleep but sometimes I get so tired when I come home, the last thing I want to do is go to the bathroom and wash my face. I keep these face wipes by Aveeno next to my bed so it'll be easier to remember to do that. 
  • Books: I always keep a stack of books next to my bed that I plan on reading. Some people I know are able to read multiple books at once but I can't do that - it gets too confusing! I just keep a collection next to my bed instead. Right now I have A Storm of Swords, by George RR Martin, Bossypants by Tina Fey, A Cuckoo's Calling by George Galbraith (aka JK Rowling), and Paddle Your Own Canoe by Nick Offerman, 
  • Hand sanitizer: I like working on my manicure at night before I go to bed and doing touchups/reapplying topcoat before I go to sleep. Before any of that goes on my nails, I like to make sure my hands are clean with this hand sanitzer.
  • Hand lotion: After cleaning my hands, I make sure to moisturize because the alcohol in my hand sanitizer can be drying. I use my old Victoria's Secret lotion. 
  • Cuticle Butter: I recently discovered this Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream and it's worked m
  • Seche Vite topcoat: Finally, I apply my topcoat - I've used Seche Vite for years and it's fabulous!
What are some things you like to keep handy on your bedside table?


  1. I spend a good portion of my weekends in bed too. The couch is nice, but my pillows are just so comfy that I'd way rather chill out there instead. I have a lot of similar essentials on my nightstand, but one that I would add is a glass of water or a water bottle - need to keep hydrated!

  2. Haha I don't have a bedside table to be honest :')
    But I always have books and magazine around
    my bed Xx

  3. I don't have a bedside table in my uni room but I have a shelf behind my bed and I put books and some beauty products there :)

  4. Love that you include your power strip in this as well! I've been thinking of posting an updated "What's On My Bedside" because Spencer and I recently got some new bedside tables. You've inspired me to jump on that! haha!
    I also have my cuticle butter (technically it's a salve, but hey, same thing) and hand lotion is a total MUST for me! I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night because my hands are so dry... I think it's a great idea to keep your cleansing wipes by your bed side, I know what you mean that some nights the last thing you want to do is go wash your face. At least this way the wipes keep you accountable.

    Much Love,

  5. Seche Vita is my fav top coat! I've tried a lot of face wipes, but I've never tried the aveeno ones. They're on my to buy list for my next CVS visit :) Thanks for the rec.


  6. Nice! Thanks for sharing :D



  7. Oh your bedside table is so clean! Mine is a mess, compelte mess. there are receipts, stray buttons, jewellery, broken jewellery..and yep I have hand cream on there too! And lip balm, and a brush for the dog...and a lamp! It's just a normal sized bedside table I just have stacked it up to hold all this stuff haha! Hubby has a bedside table at his side of the bed too, its' so clean and minimalist like yours!

  8. Yes for Games of Thrones, I kind of much rather read the books than watch the show! :) Aww , those green bookmarks are so cute and useful! I should get similar ones!
    More or less I have really similar items on my bedside table- I cannot go to sleep without moisturizing my hands and my lips!



Thank you for your comments! I read every single one :]
