It’s another tag post today (again because I’m running low on blog post ideas and I found this one on Little Owl Loves blog and thought it was cute! I wasn’t technically tagged in it – ooh rebel) and I love my bed and I love sleeping so I thought a bedtime tag was perfect for me! I’ve also recently bought some gorgeous new bedding so this is a great opportunity to show it off!
1. Describe your usual bedtime routine
My boyfriend and I often watch something before we go to sleep, either on his PlayStation or phone. It was Orphan Black or whatever current show we’re obsessed with! But I always take my make up off and do my skincare routine (which consists of a Nivea face wash, Garnier Micellar water and an antibiotic gel for acne). I’ll usually play on my phone for a bit before bed too – I’m currently playing Bakery Story!
2. What are your favourite pyjamas?
I don’t have a set pair that I love, just an old pair of shorts from a set I bought in Primark years ago (literally years ago ) and a t-shirt to go with it. I always wear fluffy heat warming socks though because I can’t stand going to bed with cold feet! I currently use these ones from Heat Holders.
3. What is your current bedtime reading?
I’m currently working my way through IT by Stephen King. I’ve read a few other books at the same time since writing this post but IT is over a thousand pages long so I’ve been at it for a while!
4. What would I find on your bedside table?
Boring answer but just a bottle of water and my phone, usually!
5. What scent makes your sleepy?
I don’t recall any scents making me sleepy but the scent I absolutely adore is freshly washed bed sheets which have been hanging to dry outside all day. There’s no smell like it!
6. What is your usual bedtime and wake up time?
I usually go to sleep at around half 12 but sometimes it’s slightly earlier or slightly later, depending on the following day. My boyfriend usually gets up for work at 8 or 9, depending on what time his shift starts. I work from home, so I get up when he gets up so his wake up time is my wake up time. I never go back to sleep when he leaves apart from the odd occasion if I feel ill or am having a bad mental health day!
7. What are your top three bedtime products?
I don’t really have any products if my teddy bear, my dog and my phone don’t count! But here are my current 3 bedtime skincare products which I’m using at the moment: Nivea Face Wash, Garnier Micellar Water and the Differin antibiotic gel (which was prescribed from the doctor)
8. what is your most common sleeping position?
I prefer to sleep on my side (either side) with my arms under my pillow.
9. Do you have anything you like to take to bed with you?
I have a teddy bear which I’ve had literally since before I was born (my granddad stole him from the hospital where my mum was – he was sitting on a table promoting Vitamin C hahaha!) and he comes everywhere with me If I’m going to be staying over somewhere, you bed your bottom dollar that my teddy bear is with me. He’s seen many part of the country and the world, this bear!
10. What’s your worst bedtime habit?
I’m not sure I really have any, apart from playing on my phone before bed but honestly, I don’t ever notice that looking at a screen affects my sleeping habits anyway!
