The Bedtime Tag
Besides coffee time, bedtime is one of my favorite parts of the day. It may not seem like it because I take forever to actually get in the bed and I always try to stay up late, but I do loveee sleep. Of course, there’s a tag for everything now so since I want to save my actual nighttime routine for a separate post in the future, this bedtime tag will be perfect for my monthly question and answer post. If you’ve missed any of my previous ones, you can find them all here. Now grab some popcorn, a blankey, and let’s talk sleepy time ;)
1.) What are your favorite pajamas?
This cozy Liz Claiborne set that I featured in my first Black Friday Haul. I’m always cold, so long sleeves and warm pants are my go-to. I’m super picky about everything soft and the fabric on these is perfect! It’s not too heavy, but it still keeps me warm. If by the off chance I’m not freezing, I do have a few nightgowns from Forever21 that I also love.
2.) Current bedtime reading?
Uhhh, I don’t read books. I’ve never liked books since I can remember. Instead, I usually scroll through social media and catch up on my notifications or play some games on my iPod to wind down before bed.
3.) What is on your bedside table?
One of my biggest pet peeves is clutter, so I tend to keep things on top of tables and counters pretty minimal. The only items that are on my nightstand are a digital alarm clock, my essential oil diffuser humidifier, and a lamp. Of course I put my phone there at night too, but those are the only three items that constantly stay there.
4.) Favorite sleepy scent?
Speaking of my essential oil diffuser humidifier, I have been using that every single night after my fiancé got it for me as a Christmas gift. In my blog post discussing all of it’s benefits, I talked about some of my favorite essential oils. My current favorite is the tranquility scent from Earthbound. I also really like their cucumber melon scent if I want something a bit lighter.
5.) What is your usual bedtime and wakeup time?
Lol. Remember when I said I like to stay up late?? Just kidding, I’ve actually been a lot better recently. My routine had gotten out of control at one point. We’re talking going to bed at 3 am, waking up at 11 am. But over the past few months, I’ve been doing good and try to get in bed around 12:30 or 1 am and wake up around 9 or 9:30.
6.) Name your top 3 bedtime products.
This is so easy!! Not listed in any particular order: my DIY eyelash growth serum, Mario Badescu’s Drying Lotion, and Neutrogena’s Rapid Wrinkle Repair night moisturizer. I’ve written separate posts explaining all the details about my DIY eyelash serum and the Drying Lotion, and I’m currently working on a review for the Neutrogena moisturizer. They’re all amazing products and I use them every night!
7.) What is your most common sleeping position?
I’ve always slept on my stomach ever since I was a baby. That’s what’s most comfortable to me. I did have a salesperson at a mattress store tell me that’s the worst sleeping position, but I don’t remember his reasoning because I honestly probably just ignored him. I can’t help it!
8.) Do you have any strange bedtime routines?
No, I don’t think I do anything too out of the ordinary. After checking the doors and making sure things are unplugged, lights are turned off, etc. I do physically tell my fish goodnight. That might be a little strange. But I swear they have personalities with feelings and know who I am!
9.) Are you a big spoon or little spoon?
Just take a look at the picture below and tell me what you think! Without those heels on, I’m quite a bit shorter than him. But sometimes I'm also more like a monkey or a jet pack because I don’t ever stop squirming around.
10.) What is your worst bedtime habit?
Eating late at night. I hate getting in bed when my stomach’s growling or if it doesn’t feel full. You know how baby’s nap after they eat? Same concept. I also don’t eat for a few hours after I wake up in the morning, so I definitely can’t go to bed hungry.
This was actually a lot more fun than I had anticipated for it to be! If you decide to do this tag, please let me know so I can see your answers too. And if you have some suggestions for future tag posts or any other personal questions for me, feel free to leave them in the comments section below. Have a wonderful weekend!!
