So here’s a little bit about me and what I get up to when I go to bed…

  • Describe your usual bedtime routine

We usually go up to bed somewhere between 2100 and 2200. Neil will read for a bit and usually falls straight to sleep. He’s one of those people who can sleep anywherer, anytime!

I will often paint my nails when we go up to bed, Neil can sleep through anything so I’m able to get things done, I’ve even been known to blow dry my hair while he’s asleep. I will often read or watch something on the iPad. It often takes me hours to get to sleep so I will scroll through the tutorials tag on Instagram or play games on my phone until I start to feel sleepy. My anxieties quite like to run themselves through my head at this point too which is fun.

  • What are your favourite pyjamas?

I own quite a few sets of pyjamas so I don’t really have a favourite, I like legging type bottoms though as I tend to move around alot in my sleep so if my pyjamas aren’t pretty tight around my legs I have a habit of getting a bit tangled up!

  • What is your current bedtime reading?

I just finished my two bedtime books – look out for a blog post about them soon. I intend to start a new book tonight though, maybe an Agatha Christie.

  • What would I find on your bedside table?

Usually a cat and quite alot of cat hair! I have a lamp and a docking station / radio for my phone. I quite often have a drink on my bedside table – it has to have a lid though so they cats don’t drink it or knock it over. 

  • What scent makes you sleepy?

None, in fact some scents can trigger a migraine!

  • What are your usual bedtime and wake up times?

Usually bed by 2200 and I can fall asleep anywhere between midnight and 0300. I wake up most days at 0730 when my alarm goes off.

  • What are your top three bedtime products?

I use a micellar water before bed to remove makeup, dirt of the day etc. Sometimes I will use a moisturiser. At the moment I’ve been using a Soap & Glory one I got for Christmas. Sometimes when I remember I like to use hand cream as well. 

  • What is your most common sleeping position?

I don’t think I have one, I move around alot. I tend to fall asleep lay on my front with one leg pulled up towards my chest.

  • Do you have anything you like to take to bed with you?

I like the cats to be in the bed! I find them really comforting.

  • What is your worst bedtime habit?

Probably staying up looking at my phone or reading for to long. I used to suffer from Insomnia and I always found that trying to fight it made me worse, so when I can’t sleep, I stop trying and do something else instead. I think Neil would say me being restless would be a bad habit!

Huge thanks again to Stacey for tagging me! I loved her answers! I’d like to tag Kelly over at Thistattandtheother!

    Fab answers! I find if I wake in the night I struggle to get back to sleep and then get overthinking and wide awake. Antony does same as Neil with sleeping anywhere. Antony will go instantly to sleep it proper annoys me lol 😂

    Legging PJ pants are the best! I move around a lot too; I’ve woken up in some really strange positions before, haha! This is an interesting post to read 🙂 – Sarah x
