Bedtime is my absolute favourite part of the day (as well as any time involving food of course). Sometimes I count down the hours until it’s time for me to settle down and have a snooze (well deserved of course). The lovely Nicola from Mummy to Dex tagged me to complete the Bedtime tag and of course I couldn’t wait to tell you guys all about my favourite time of the day haha!
1.Describe your usual bedtime routine:
As Bear goes to bed at 7, unless I’ve been working or am feeling particularly exhausted, I may stay up for a couple of hours and get some blogging stuff done. Otherwise, I will sit in bed with a bit of Netflix and eventually drift off. I aim to try and sleep at about 11pm (if I’m working the next day however, it’ll be earlier & not usually including Netflix).
2.What are your favourite pyjamas?
I literally live for my pyjamas, I think I have more pairs of PJ’s than outfits even though I don’t usually wear them in bed as I get too hot. I have fluffy pyjama pants (which I wear with vest tops), panda pyjamas, tatty teddy pyjamas and even a set of pyjamas from Tesco which are grey & white and are an oversized top and leggings (which are ridiculously comfortable by the way).
3.What is your current bedtime reading?
Usually Twitter & Facebook & chats I’m in with twitter/blogging friends but I am trying to get back into reading more so I’m currently reading Hurrah for Gin by Katie Kirby.
4.What would I find on your bedside table?
Nothing majorly exciting, a lamp, panda money box & hand cream, large Yankee candle in black plum blossom scent, ‘C’ scented candle from Next (which Amy & Emily kindly gifted me for my birthday) and a fresh winter scent candle I received for christmas. There’s also a kimmidoll there which is a creative good luck charm kinda thing.
5.What Scent Makes You Sleepy?
I don’t like strong scents when I’m going to sleep but the light scents from the candles (unlit) of course is quite relaxing or the honey & lavender febreeze spray I have is lovely too.
6. What is your usual bedtime & wake-up time?
If I’m working, bedtime is usually around 9/10pm & wake-up can be anywhere between 5&6.30 (depending on what time I’m starting that day) but if I’m off, bedtime is usually around 10.30-11.30 and wake-up with Bear between 8 & 9.
7.What are your top 3 bedtime products?
Depends on the kind of evening I’m having. I do like a bath with a relaxing bubble bar/bubble bath & a facemask and having the candles lit or I can literally just snuggle up in the duvet & watch a bit of Netflix on the tablet.
8.What is your most common sleeping position?
Usually on my side in the foetal position all curled up but I tend to wake up on my back in the middle of the night too.
9.Do you have anything you like to take to bed with you?
Phone/tablet and usually a glass of fresh orange juice and a snicker haha.
10.What is your worst bedtime habit?
Saying I’m going to get an earlier night for a better night sleep and not doing then complaining I’m tired. I have a habit of saying “one more episode” or staying up later chatting or on twitter too.
