Things I Can’t Live Without: On My Nightstand

water bottle

I’m not the greatest water drinker however, when I’m thirsty or feel thirsty I’m surely dehydrated. Which is NOT good but I dislike water with a passion. It’s not something I make my daily routine or naturally gravitate towards. But now I’m back trying to guzzle down all the water I can to avoid being dehydrated and feeling so thirsty all the time. I always have a big bottle before bed and I end up drinking it all through the night. I found this bottle-> Thermos 24 Ounce Hydration Bottle with Connected Smart Lid, Teal last year and it definitely motivates me like a Fitbit to drink more- plus it’s fun to track on my Fitbit/water minder app which will remind me every 30 mins or so and will also track on Fitbit and health apple apps.

a book

A couple of good books on my lamp side table, although I tend to read more on Kindle or recently through audiobooks. Cuddling up with a good book and cozy blanket is one of the best things you can do on a lazy Sunday. I love the power a good book holds within its’ chapters between its’ covers. To take the reader on an explorative journey no matter where it may lead. If you’d like to follow me on Goodreads to keep up with books I love and am reading. Right now I’m reading Miracle Morning and also You are a Badass.

jewelry dish

I have a jewelry dish with a quote on it and I just love looking at it daily. It says:
“This is my prayer for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter  to kiss your lips, success to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see,  friendships to brighten  your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence  for when you doubt,  courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, love to complete your life.”
I like to take my rings off before bed because they tend to slip off during the night. I take my two special necklaces off there too. I’ve had this Amy Cornwell angel necklace (which she no longer makes) for years now and this one (similar) I found at Kohl’s a few years back.


I have continually talked about this but it’s really been that great for me. The Instant Happy Journal has changed the way I think about things and about the parts of my day. I try to act kinder in the midst of writing my way through this daily. It’s small and manageable so you don’t get behind easily (unless you’re me). But I find I can keep writing in it for hours when I sit down and enjoy it. At first, it was suggested to me by a vlogger I follow on YouTube, Marissa Lace. If I’ve convinced you that it’ll change your life- then go buy it now or wait until your next paycheck because it’s not dated and you can feel free to use it or begin whenever you want to.
