For a while now i’ve wanted to do a post somewhat related to my room and the area’s of storage that I have. I’ve seen a few bloggers talk about their bedside tables, showing what they store on them and in them, which I really enjoy reading so I thought i’d jump on the bandwagon and show you guys what my bed side storage looks like.
|Ikea Hemnes Bedside Table – Ikea (£40)
For my bedside table I have the Ikea Hemnes Bedside Table, which I chose as it only has one drawer meaning that it wouldn’t just become full of junk and it also has a little shelf in between the legs which is super handy and works well to store my makeup bags.
As you can see I keep the surface area quite minimal and tidy as I hate having random clutter taking up space. Just like any bedside table I have a Lamp, which isn’t actually pictured but it just your bog standard lamp with a pink shade on it, which does the trick for you know giving me some light. I also have a little Cup Mat, or whatever those things are called, but I love the cute floral print as it ties in well with my room aesthetic. At night time, I always just chuck my iPhone on my bedside table whilst it is charging, but I thought i’d put it for the sake of the picture ha! As for beauty bits I don’t have an awful amount of things as they’d just take up space and look messy. At the minute I have my trusty Bioderma, as it is too fat to fit in the drawer and I use it most nights to remove my makeup before cleansing. The nail polish i’m wearing at the moment is Topshop Celestial, so I like to have whatever shade i’m wearing out for quick touch ups. As I suffer with dry lips I always have a lipbalm handy and at the minute i’m loving the Nivea Lip Butter in Vanilla & Macadamia, so that is just chilling on my bedside table as ease of use.
As for the drawer, I use this to store all of my skincare bits that aren’t cleansers or masks as they are stored in my bathroom (even though you’re not supposed to store them in your bathroom, but I still do). I’ve made use of an old Birchbox to house the majority of my skincare bits including my trusty Origins Ginzing Moisturiser, which is honestly my favourite moisturiser, Hydraluron, which is a no brainer really and the Caudalie Beauty Elixir, which I love to use during the summer. I also have a few samples and random things like spot cream and eye creams in there which I use every now and then. Next to that I have the bigger bottled items, such as my Pixi Glow Tonic and the L’oreal Eye Makeup Remover which is underneath the La Roche Posay Hydreane Legere, fabulous products! The only thing that is annoying about the drawer is that it only opens halfway, meaning some products can get lost at the back but other than that I really like it and makes a really good way to store my skincare bits.
So, that is my bedside table! I hope it gives you guys a few ideas on what to do with your bedside storage and I hope i’ve managed to give you a few skincare recommendations whilst I was at it.
What is your bedside table storage like?
