I love having a nosy around people's bedside tables and so thought I'd share what mine was looking like right now. My IKEA Hemnes bedside table is actually a fairly recent addition as we've had our bedroom re-done (will do a post soon with before and afters!) and I needed one.
So, what's on my bedside table...
On top: I like to keep the beauty products that I use on a regular basis nearby so that I can reach for them easily before bed. I have the Organic Surge Blissful Night Cream*, L'Oreal Paris Skin Perfection Day Moisturiser*, La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo+*, OPI Avoplex Nail and Cuticle Oil and The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector.
I then have two pretty jars- the one on the left was from Dunelm Mill and the one on the right was a gift. I like having these as they're so pretty- even if I don't really use them! I bought the pretty sherbet straws from Poundland and think they look so cute in the jar - and also nice for a little old school treat! The other jar houses my Bath & Body Works mini anti-bacs.
The other two items are my Denman hair brush and a coaster which my brother personalised and bought me from Not on the High Street (love love love that website). The photo was taken of us in Florida last year.
Lower shelf: I bought this hessian basket from Sainsbury's- I got a set of three for £10 which is such a bargain as they are so handy. I like to keep bits and bobs in here that I don't use all the time - I've got my snuggly Hippo which was a gift from my Mum and can be heated in the microwave so that it keeps you toasty in bed. I've also got Allure magazine and hidden underneath is my Kindle and 5 year Q a day journal (post with more on that here).
Drawer: I decided not to take a photo of this as it's where all my mess is hidden! I keep really random bits and bobs in there like recipes I've torn out, my pill and some beauty bits and bobs that I don't use every night.
