Let's take a swing at this together! I'm spilling all of the secrets in my course!


I looove seeing what people keep on their nightstand! Whether it be books, products, skin care, or other necessities, it’s fun to see in case I need to try something new out!

Here’s what’s on my nightstand!

Always a book!

Right now I’m reading “Such a Fun Age” by Kiley Reid and “Power of a Praying Parent” (one during the day, one at night). Check out my book recs on my latest Instagram post here.

My pumps

I’m down to only pumping at night to relieve myself and help my stored milk inventory. I try to pump right before bed and if I’m not pumping at night, then I’m pumping when I’m away from Maddex which typically means I’m on the go. These handsfree and cordless Elvie pumps are legit and I can’t recommend them enough.

My “catch all” bowl

My girl, Susan Gordon, sells incredible pottery pieces out of Birmingham, Alabama and I love this sized bowl to catch all the things from my earrings, AirPods, all the things!

Lip Conditioner

I’ve raved about it before and I’ll rave about it again, this lip conditioner is everything! The smell, the texture, the results, it’s all so luxurious and is the greatest final step of my nighttime skincare routine.

My Stanley Tumbler

I take this guy with me everywhere! If you know about it, then you know! These tumblers sell out in (I kid you not) 45 minutes after being published on their site. I have two (one to use while the other is washing) and I bring it full to bed every night!

My vitamins

Right now I’m taking the Nutrafol vitamins before bed to help with hair thinning and shedding and it’s the real deal! I’m also taking my prenatal vitamins still since I’m breastfeeding.

The Hatch Sound Machine

I love this product for Maddex but I’ve gotten hooked, too. We live on an Air Force Base and while you may think that there aren’t noises of planes flying overhead at night, there are. Having a sound machine helps so much. We love this one because there are several sound options, volume amounts and it even has a light feature with different colors all able to be controlled on your phone through an app.

Baby Monitor

At night, his monitor is right next to me on my nightstand. To see which monitor is our favorite and the ones that you all suggested, head over to this blog post.

I wear a lot of hats these days including mama to two boys, military wife, blogger, podcast host and more. You can find me behind the microphone at Real Talk with Rach where we talk about everything from jeans to Jesus, playlists to pop culture, the good and the grief and everything in between.
