I LOVE to savor the end of the day. I take such pleasure in pouring a big glass of something delish, kicking off my heels and changing into comfy clothes. Soft fabrics, delicate fragrances and those first few sips…I’m like yessss. I think, “Okay, this was a craaazy day. I worked hard, laughed much, and spent time with the people I love. Now…it’s me-time!”
I hope you enjoy a similar experience at the end of your day but if you should need a little help in getting there, well, lucky you! I’ve field tested all of these gorgeous gowns, pajamas, and goodies for your bedside table just for you so you can enjoy the best of the best and get right down to the fine art of relaxing!

Softest (and I mean the softest) cotton you will ever wear. I love LAKE loungewear for its simple lines and luxe fabrics. When I want to slip into something cozy to binge watch Game of Thrones, this is my number one choice. LAKE is based right here in the South, too!
LAKE Nightgown $68
MUCH to the amusement of my husband and girlfriends, I’m a slipper girl. Through and through! (Probably because I run around in heels all day!) Soooo, every evening after I change into my sleepwear, I give my tootsies some lovin’ with Deborrah Lippmann Steppin’ Out cream (see below), don my slippers, and voilà! Softest feet evahhh when I get into bed at night.
UGG Australia Andi Slipper

FAVES! I go through a pair every couple of months. They have a rubber sole so no slipping down stairs.
UGG Australia Brig Slipper
$99.95 ON SALE $69.96
In my bedroom there’s a ban on kids’ stuff, work stuff, clutter (like old mags), and anything that might make me feel guilty..like exercise equipment (as if, right?) or books I know in my heart I’m never going to read.
Must haves include dimmable lighting, sumptuous sheets and bedding (I love love my feather pillows!), scented candles (So cliché, ha!) and fresh flowers.
I deliberately chose a smaller bedside table so I wouldn’t be tempted to accumulate a lot of things next to where I lay my head. What I keep close to me are items I cherish, such as a framed photo of my childhood home and an engraved silver coaster given to me by my sweet cousin, as well as things I use often in the evening.
FAVE! I love this cream so much I use it on my feet, legs, elbows, hands, shoulders…you name it! It has a really pretty, subtle scent, leaves your skin glowing but not greasy and is the best moisturizer I’ve ever used. I buy two tubes at a time!
The scent of lavender will always remind my husband and me of our honeymoon in the south of France. This cream has the most delicious whipped texture, really moisturizes and smells the most like genuine lavender of any cream I’ve ever tried. He loves it when I use it at night before bed!
FAVE! I KNOW what you’re thinking! You’re like…whaaaat? Fifty dollars for a lip balm?! Trust me, girls. This is THE BEST I’ve ever used and I love it SO MUCH that I apply it on top of my lipstick, too. It fills in your lips (great for those of us who may have a teensy wrinkle here and there) and plumps them so they appear so smooth! One pot lasts a long time and smells and tastes good, too.
Tervis Tumbler $14.99
Everyone in my house likes to keep a little something to drink by the bed at night.
Très expensive but the fragrance smells expensive and the candle lasts practically forever, so you get what you pay for! There are many different scents from which to choose. I love ‘Pool House’ with its french lilac scent and ‘Living Room’ with its gorgeous Gardenia fragrance. Visit Lafco to see them all.
SuthinGirl is always looking for little ways to luxe up her life. I love the texture of this cord and its extra length makes it perfect for plugging in behind my bed.
All the sleepwear I recommend is machine washable with regular detergent. However, if you want to give yourself an even more lush experience, try washing your sleepwear and pillowcases in The Laundress’ Delicate Wash. I am CRAZY about the ‘Lady’ scent! It will elevate your relaxation and sleep experience, trust me! I also recommend using The Laundress’ Mesh Washing Bags when you launder your bras and any sleepwear with delicate fabric or trim. Just zip up your pretty things inside these bags and toss them into the machine with the rest of your laundry. Easy peasy!
The Laundress Mesh Bag Bundle $15 for a set (1 small bag & 1 large bag)
