I actually had another post planned today (Don’t worry, you’ll get that next week), but when I was lazing in bed this morning I stumbled over Becky and Fleur’s Bedtime Tag video, and I just knew that I had to do it. Bedtime is such a special thing for me after I established my new routine, and now I give myself plenty of time to actually settle down and enjoy bedtime, as it is.
Before I get into the questions, here is some background information: I start getting ready for bed at 9-ish pm. Sometimes a bit before, sometimes a bit after. I spend around 15-25 minutes in the bathroom, having a dance party, brushing my teeth etc. Then afterward I go to bed, and I usually read or watch youtube videos or laze around on tumblr until 10, which is when I turn everything off, turn on my alarm and put everything away. Then I try my best to go to sleep. This has been working really well for me, and in general it has made me a lot less likely to end up staying up to 1 am. And with that done, let’s move on to the questions!
1. What are your favourite pyjamas?
These pyjama bottoms. I don’t really have a favourite top, but these bottoms I got for Christmas from one of my friends a few years ago. I love them. They are so comfy and festive without being so much so that you can’t wear them any other time of the year. Also I just love plaid.
2. Current bedtime reading?
Mostly I just read whatever fanfiction I’ve stumbled across, but I really am trying to get through Kristin Lavransdatter, The Crucible and Kjærlighet, which are three books that we’re reading in my Norwegian and English classes.
3. What is on your bedside table?
My tumbler full of water, my DIY bedside lamp thing, a stack of books (including the ones mentioned in the previous question), my hand cream and my lip balm.
4. Favourite sleepy scent?
Just the scent of any tea I’m drinking will do nicely. I don’t really light candles or anything before going to bed.
5. What is your usual bedtime & wakeup time?
As mentioned above I go to sleep at 10 pm, and four days of the week I have my alarm at 6:30 am (because I need to leave for school at 7:20)
6. Top 3 bedtime products?
I’m not that much of a product person, but these three are some things I almost always use before bed: TGR hand cream, H&M lip balm, Sleepytime Tea
7. Your most common sleeping position?
I have no idea, but I can’t fall asleep unless I’m laying on my back.
8. Any strange bedtime routines?
I don’t really have any, I think. Not that I can think of that would be strange to other people, at least. No, I’m blank on this one.
9. Are you big spoon or little spoon?
I don’t have anyone to spoon with (not that there would be any room for two people in my bed anyway), but I’m pretty sure I’d be the little spoon.
