Bedside Table: Sick Addition

I've been sick the last week and a half and I'm finally starting to feel good again. So I thought it would be kinda fun? to show you guys how I survived!

And yes, I'm nearly 22 and I still have my teddy bear from when I was 5 and it was waaay bigger than me.
Firstly, I had to go to the doctor to get some penicillin for my throat infection and otitis - these definitely help me getting better! But tea, magazines and cream wasn't bad either.

TEA WITH HONEY: Served in my Starbucks mug from Shanghai, of course. I drink green tea with either the taste of lemon or mango. Normally, I don't use any sweetener in my tea, but the honey calms the throat so therefore I put about a teaspoon honey in my tea.

STREPSILS: These lozenges with honey and lemon, again, also helps with a sore throat. And they taste good!

CREAM: When you've blown your nose over and over and over again it gets a little dry, so I've used the NUXE Hand and Nail Cream which works wunders for both my hands and my nose! I of course also used a lot of moisturizer for my face - love the little sample from Korres which I got in My Beauty Box.

LIP BALM: My lips got dry and chipped a bit. Do I need to say more! I love this lip balm with mentholatum.

WATER: When you're sick you need to get hydrated. Water is your BFF in this - and every - situation.

MAGAZINES: You need some entertainment! So, besides watching loads of TV, including a recap of The O.C. (One of my all time favourite shows) I read a lot of magasines - fashion, beauty and fitness.

This is my little survival kit! What are some of your survival-sickness-essentials? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. Strepsils er guld værd! :D Jeg kan æde dem som slik, haha :-) Håber også det går fint med eksamen hos dig.


    1. Ja, det er de virkelig! OG de her smager superb godt :)
      Det kunne gå bedre med eksamen, men det skal nok gå (håber jeg ;))
