Hi Everyone! I’m back today and this post is going to be a little bit different that what I’ve been having up on here in awhile. So a rep from Leesa, a mattress company reached out to me and asked if I would like to write a blog post about my perfect day in, with my bed and books of course. So is some of the essentials that I would need, if this day would ever happen (and we all know, with my schedule, even sleep is a little hard to get to).
So first of all, I would need any many pillows, so I can make a pillow fort of sorts to stay in all day, and pillows so I can prop up my books and my kindle, making it as easy as possible and to avoid any hand cramps. Then I need blankets so if I’m reading a book with a really bad break up scene or a horror scene, I can just wrap myself up into a blanket cocoon to try and shield myself from it.
Of course, we cannot forget about the books. I need many many books to keep me from having to leave the bed all day. I just want a bunch of YA contemporary books to read, as well as romance books. You know what’s even better though? YA Contemporary Romance books. So I would get as many paperbacks as I can get, and because books get expensive, I need my kindle as well because kindle books are usually noticeably cheaper. (I’m not cheap, I’m just broke :))
Now what if my kindle or phone dies? I need my charger. While I’m on that topic, I also need a bedside table to keep all the books from piling up on my bed and to put food on.
Speaking of food, I’m gonna need food. I literally cannot go 3 hours without food. Let’s see, what food do I need? Since I’m a horrible cook, I’d probably just buy pre made food from the store and keep it on the table for when I’m hungry. Also I need water bottles so I can stay hydrated. Wait, but then if I drink too much water, I’d have to go to the bathroom. Well that’s unavoidable so I guess I’d have to get up to use the restroom.
And other than reading, what else do I love the most? My blog of course. So I would also need my laptop and its charger (as it’s battery life is only about 5-6 hours and if I’m staying on my bed all day, that’s not enough) so I can review the books, and try to review every single one of them. And while I’m reviewing, I need my planner to keep track of which books I’ve read, which reviews I need/have already written and when they are scheduled to go up.
I think that’s all of my essentials for a perfect day in. Of course, I can’t forget about the mattress :) if you guys want to check out Leesa mattresses, you can read about them here. They have a really cool give back program where they donate 1 mattress for every 10 they sell.
Let me know what YOUR essentials are for a day in and staying in bed all day. What books would you want? What food? What mattress in fact? Have you done this before? I guess I could keep dreaming but it’s just reality that this probably can’t ever become a reality for me.
