What is your usual bedtime routine?
Sam – I’m very much a night owl and can stay up all hours but when I do want to wind down and start getting into sleepy mode, I turn off my laptop, snuggle up on the couch with a million blankets and some tea and watch a movie.
Sarah – My usual bedtime routine would involve getting ready for bed, taking off all my makeup and going through my cleansing routine and then getting into bed. I’ll probably do a little list making in my bullet journal and then read a book for a bit.
What are some of your favourite pyjamas to wear to bed?
Sarah – I love Primark pyjamas for their comfy and fun styles. I’ve loved the recent Beauty & The Beast ones but recently as it has got a little warmer I’ve been loving their nightshirts. Basically anything comfy.
Sam – I don’t wear pyjamas to bed but I love robes for like pre-bedtime, they’re one of my latest obsessions I have four that I alternate between, my favourite is my pink fluffy unicorn one. It’s totes grown up. 😛
What is your current bedtime reading?
Sam – If I started reading an actual book before bed I wouldn’t be able to put it down, so I usually play some Sudoku on my phone in night time mode, I try and limit myself to five games or again, I would stay up all night playing it.
Sarah – I’ve finally started The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I feel like I’m super behind but the reviews have been great and a lot of people recommended it as something they knew I’d like,
What would I find on your bedside table?
Sarah – My book, tissue box, hand cream and a lip balm. Oh, and my bullet journal and a pen.
Sam – A lamp, a Scentsy warmer, a tube of Neal’s Yard Bee Lovely Hand Cream and a pot Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm. I don’t always remember to use my hand cream during the day but I do before I go to bed and I lash on lots of lip balm too, then when I wake up it’s like I have brand new lips and my hands are super soft.
What scent makes you sleepy?
Sam – I’m not too fussy about scents before bedtime, I tend to just randomly pick a scent from my stash of wax supplies to use in my Scentsy warmer. I try not to go for scents that smell like cake or cookies because they can keep me up all night wanting cake and cookies ha ha ha!
Sarah – Ocean Mist type scents seem to make me feel relaxed and sleepy. Anything sea salt based is a sure winner of putting me into a chilled out mood.
What is your usual bedtime and wakeup time?
Sarah – I aim to be asleep before midnight but Sam will easily tell you that I’m normally messaging her after midnight (we use viber ALL the time). My other half has his alarm go off at 5 for work so I normally open my eyes a little then to say goodbye but my alarm goes off at 7.
Sam – Oh jeez, it really varies, on average I would say I’d go to bed after 1am and would get up before 8am.
What are your top three bed time products?
Sam – I have a dodgy spine, always have, anyway a couple of years ago it was really acting up and my other half bought me a big, long body pillow to help me sleep and support my back, it really helped me out, but now even though my back is ok, I can’t really sleep without it. So that would be my number one bedtime product. My Nuxe lip balm is definitely a bedtime essential for me and I like to give myself a mini facial before bed, so whatever night cream I have on hand.
Sarah – A comfy bed… this might sound like a completely obvious thing but I’ve slept on some awful beds/mattresses in my time. I bought a mattress topper last year and it has made my bed even more comfortable but also supported my back. Both Sam and I are not blessed with good spines. I simply have to use a lip balm before bed, no idea what happens over night but my lips can be so dry first thing in the morning. I love a good face serum, I love having a pamper before bedtime.
What is your most common sleeping position?
Sarah – Always on my side. I can’t sleep on my front or on my back. Always on my side.
I also steal the covers at about 4.10am apparently. 😂
Sam – I call it “the koala” ha ha ha. So if my body pillow was a tree, I would be the koala wrapped around it. Best way I can think to describe it.
Do you have anything you like to take to bed with you?
Sam – I always bring some water or juice to bed with me.
Sarah – I do like to have a drink with me but if it’s cold I’ll bring a blanket.
What is your worst bedtime habit?
Sarah – Thinking that just watching another episode or another YouTube video won’t really matter the next day… it always does. Although concealer helps the next morning.
Sam – Getting lost on Pinterest…you know when you say to yourself “I’ll just browse Pinterest for a few minutes…” and then like four hours later you have a million meals/parties/weddings planned out, yeah I always do that.
Are you big spoon or little spoon?
Sam – My other half is 6ft 4 and I’m 5ft 5 so definitely the little spoon.
Sarah – I’m definitely the little spoon who steals the duvet 😂
