What’s On My Nightstand with Shirley Phoung

June 1, 2018

Shirley is a 25 year old woman who is constantly busy and on the go. Having a nightstand is important for her because she can put all of her essentials in one place. Since she’s constantly on the run, it is sometimes hard for her to remember where she keeps everything, so she likes to keep all her essentials together on her nightstand.



Shirley’s nightstand is a small white table near the corner of her room. Her bed is close by, so it is a convenient spot to keep all of her essentials.


Here is what Shirley keeps on her nightstand:

  • A cup of water. Shirley always has water on her nightstand. Whether her water is in a Starbucks cup or a water bottle, she often wakes up in the middle of the night with a dry throat and needs to drink some water. 

  • Contact lenses and solution. Shirley normally likes to wear glasses, but occasionally she’ll wear her lenses. What better place keep contact lenses and solution than on a nearby nightstand? 

  • Brush and hair tie. Shirley sometimes wakes up late and finds herself in a rush. Luckily, she has her brush and hair tie ready on her nightstand so she can easily brush her hair and be off with her day.

  • Lush mask. Shirley loves ending her day with a night mask, especially when her boyfriend has the time to join in with her. Her favorite one is currently Magnaminty. 

  • Equate Flushable Wipes. Shirley sometimes chooses to wear makeup, so she keeps makeup wipes on her nightstand for the nights when she’s too tired to go to the bathroom and wipe off her makeup. She says that having wipes on her nightstand is essential and convenient. 

  • Last but not least, Durex Extra Sensitive Condoms. Shirley’s at a point in her life when she’s not ready for kids, so she strives to be safe and protected.  

Nightstands are meant to make your life a little easier by giving you a place to store all of your essentials. Shirley is a hard-working full time assistant manager at Miniluxe. She graduated with her associate’s degree a few years ago from North Shore Community College and she aims to go back to school for her bachelor’s degree in the near future at Salem State University.
