What's on my Nightstand?

It's hard to tell but I actually love home decor as much as I love beauty products. However, it's not as prominent because revamping my room has been a slow-moving side project of mine. I've been out of college for a year now so I'm trying to change all of my 'college furniture' to 'adult decor' if that even makes sense.

This past weekend, I was able to put in a new nightstand and replaced the old makeshift bookshelf I used.
For the most part, you'll find these five items on my nightstand at all times.

1. Fresh flowers
2. Lamp from Target that I've had since freshman year of college (patiently waiting to be replaced)
3. Old school alarm clock from Marshalls that I actually don't use for an alarm 
4. Mini pineapple lip balm I bought from a boutique in LA 
5. 3-wick candle from Bath and Body Works
I love having fresh flowers on the nightstand because it adds so much life to the room. Plus it's pleasing to the eyes and smells so good. I work and live by a few farmers markets so it's convenient to replace the flowers once they go bad.

The lamp has 'college dorm' written all over it so down the line, it will be replaced. During the evenings, I like to use the lamp instead of the ceiling light because dims the light.

The alarm clock was something I found while cruising through Marshalls. I absolutely love scouring places like Target, Marshalls, and Ikea for things to add to the home- quality items for decent prices.

I love all things pineapples because it reminds me of home and the blog. I bought this little gem at a boutique called Black Market LA on Sawtelle Ave in Los Angeles. Can you guess what it is? The answer will be at the end of this post!

Last, I am crazy about candles from Bath and Body Works, especially the ones from the Fall season. The scents in the fall are so beautiful and makes the room feel so cozy so I always stock up on those and buy enough to last the rest of the year. The scents in the spring are cool too but I prefer the fall scents over the fruity ones is all.

I know this was a different post from what I usually write about. What are some of your essentials you have on your nightstand? By the way, the mini pineapple is a pina colada flavored lip balm! Cute huh?

  2. Great post I love having a glimpse into people's homes :)
    I love that old school alarm clock!
    My nightstand is always a mess but one essential is having a box of tissues - I'm a sneezy person especially now it's coming into summer!
