The Bedtime Tag

Today I have another tagged post for you guys - the Bedtime Tag. (Not as creepy as it sounds.) I was sent this tag a while ago by Puja from the blog BerryBloomXO, who in turn got it from a Fleur De Force video - Fleur really is the queen of excellent tags isn't she? Puja has done a great job of converting it to a blog post tag and I thought this would be a fun post to share with you on a Sunday. So read on for my answers...

My side of the bed and bedside table... looking untidy as usual
What are your favourite pyjamas?
I have some Disney pyjamas from Primark - who always have excellent pyjamas - where the top is Minnie Mouse wearing yellow glasses and the bottoms are checked black and white flannel. They're so soft and comfortable and great for lounging around in the flat (though I suspect my husband would cheerfully throw them out if he could). I did however just buy a super-cute set from Bravissimo with a navy blue vest and blue and white polka dots which will be great for the summer so looking forward to wearing those!

Current bedtime reading?
At the moment it's Outlander by Diana Gabaldon - I want to read it before watching the TV series on Amazon Instant Video. Bit slow going as it's 800-odd pages and I'm only 100 or so pages in but really enjoying it so far.

What is on your bedside table?
Too much stuff! My jewellery box, my alarm clock, my mirror, my Kindle and various beauty bits (more on those later).

Favourite sleepy scent?
Anything with lavender - I always find it makes me sleep better. I tend to drink chamomile tea before bed as well and often just the smell of that is enough to get me drifting off.

What is your usual bedtime and wake-up time?
Bedtime is usually around 10-11 PM. In the week, I wake up around 5.30-6 AM (yes I know, but I like to exercise and/or blog in the mornings) and in weekends I'll sleep in a bit - but am still up before eight otherwise it just feels like wasting a day.

Top three bedtime products?
I tend to use my bedtime routine as the point where I do all my daily pampering, so I'll apply lip balm - at the moment I'm using a Burt's Bees one - and treat my cuticles with a Nails Inc cuticle oil pen. Then I'll apply some hand cream such as Soap & Glory Hand Food, plus extra on my feet with socks over the top, and then snuggle down for bed.

Your most common sleeping position?
Curled up on my left side, knees at a right angle to my body, left hand under my cheek, right hand either just below left or cuddling Nick. But I somehow always wake up facing the other way...

Any strange bedtime routines?
None that I know of...

Are you big spoon or little spoon?
Usually big spoon. I'm fairly particular about which side I sleep on (I really struggle to fall asleep on my right side) and, as Nick sleeps on the left side of the bed, big spoon it is!

This was a really great tag to do and thank you Puja for sending it to me! If you're reading and have done the Bedtime Tag or would like to do it, leave me the link to your post in the comments below - I'd love to read them all.
