How to get your beauty sleep and create a relaxing bedroom

The festive season is fun but busy, and we all need our beauty sleep to be at our best.
Take a moment to create an area of private relaxation in your bedroom, a space where you can unwind from the silly season.






My essential list for creating a bedroom where you can rest, relax, and revive your energies.

  • A few fresh flowers.  Just a few blooms cut from your garden are lovely, scented if possible.  You would do it for house guests, this season do it for yourself too.  
  • When you have guests staying, or children home during the holidays, let your bedroom be your retreat, a little oasis where you can have a little quiet time.  Make sure you have a few extra pillows so you can sit comfortably, a snuggly throw to cover your feet, and a good book handy to dip into.  
  • Trinket box for festive season bling.  Tis the season for getting dressed up, a handy trinket box on the bedside table will keep your party bling in check.  
  • Make sure you have enough pillows if you are having guests to stay.  Last time we had guests I realised little Miss J had moved into a big girl bed and we were a few pillows short.  Plan ahead so that everybody will be comfortable.
  • Bamboo cotton pillow cases.  Soft, yet silky, the only pillow cases I use at the moment.
  • Keep a notebook in your bedside table, for making notes, doodling, and writing to do and shopping lists.
  • Open your windows and let in the lovely fresh air.  Well I guess this only works if its summer where you are.
