bedface | September Essentials

So you’ve made it through the funky August-September transition hopefully without too many sleepless nights. That morning alarm is still sounding pretty shrill, but you’re up and ready to buckle down to new routines and meet your busy days with gusto. The following chaos is starting to feel relatively organized:  

a) you’re back at work

b) you’re back at school

c) the kids are back at school

d) all of the above!

All that juggling and constantly having to be in two places at once means that now more than ever your bed is the one place that is a constant. An oasis. A retreat. A place that is entirely your own. Crisp cool mornings and golden autumn light nudge you towards putting some changes into place to adjust to the new season. Maybe you’re even a little excited to layer up, get warm duvets out from the back of your closet, and pull on your favourite sweater.

Whatever this season may hold for you, you can always fall back into your bedface sheets and wake up on the right side of September. Below, our September essentials list is packed full of items and ideas to help smooth the way.
