As most women I'm keeping my bedside table stocked full of my - so called - essentials. Today I'm showing you a glimpse of what my bedside table looks like these days. Here's what is lying around on my nightstand lately:

Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Nourishing Oil-In-Cream
A nourishing oil-in-cream for taming and softening dry hair. I use it as a leave-in for when my ends are in need of a glossy boost.  

Estelle & Thild Facial Serum Rose Otto
An organic serum for extra vitamins and a an extra glow while optimizing skin elasticity. 

L'Occitane Almond Foot Care
A luxurious foot cream for rich hydration. Quickly absorbed and a deep moisturization with an addictive almond scent. I tend to use it as a hand cream as well.

Lancôme Rénergie French Lift
An ultra-nourishing night cream making my skin look plumper and more radiant in the morning.

La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Barrier Repairing Balm
A lip balm for deeply nourished and protected lips enhanced with moisture

Q&A A Day, 5-year Journal; Potter Style
Every night I respond to my daily question. I started in January and can't wait to start over next year and to look over all my answers in five years. I love the idea of tracking yourself over the years in answering the same question. 

Illustration Now! Fashion; Taschen
I have to flip through these stunning fashion drawings and sketches almost every night. The colorful illustrations and wise quotes by fashion experts offer the perfect dose of inspiration before closing my eyes.

  1. This fashion illustration book looks awesome!
    Going to have a look at a bookshop (I'm such a reader!!)
    By the way, nice concept. It is like a variation on the what's in my bag posts :)

  2. Oh, man! I've GOT to grab the Illustration Now! book! I have the Q&A A Day, but got really bad at actually filling it in each day. If I can find it, I might start up again. (:
