One of my favorite things to do in the evening when it’s cold out (or not cold, let’s be honest) is to cozy up in bed way early, and watch a movie (or Bravo as the case may very well be). I try and make my bedroom feel as luxurious and pampering as a room at a boutique hotel, and making sure my nightstand is stocked with a few necessities is essential in making this happen.
A huge part of creating ambiance for any room or occasion is candle light and a subtle scent. You will always find a candle lit at my bedside in the evening. My favorite brand is of course wynn & roo and this Sugared Citrus is an all time fav.
Having a rich and soothing hand cream is essential in the winter for dry skin, and it also is a small indulgence that can help you feel pampered, especially if you haven’t gotten around to that mani lately.
My lips are habitually dry – the first sign of dehydration (which lends to another point – a glass of water bedside is a must). Our skin does much of it’s healing and repairing at night, so I always slather on a nice thick layer of lip balm before bed.
Fresh flowers make me feel special, uplifted and fancy. Whether it is a single bloom or a bountiful bouquet, I encourage you to treat yourself and add something fresh to your bedside. The scent of a fresh bloom as you drift off to sleep, and as you wake is simply divine.
Another bedside staple is a great book. I’m currently searching for my next read, so please comment with any fabs or recommendations you have! I hope you enjoyed and will treat yo’ self!
