Happy September! We are so excited for this new season and we hope that you are all returning to work, University or College refreshed and relaxed. The return to 'real life' after a summer of sunshine can be difficult so today, we have you covered with our top three organisational and motivational tips for the season. If you are still on holiday (we are so jealous!), you can read this pool side to ease you into returning to the daily grind and if you are back in work already - you've got this babes.
1. Organisation is Key - You probably have plans for all the amazing things you are going to do this September. Smash your day job? Check. Sort out your closet to reveal a fantastic Autumn wardrobe? Check. Introduce an exercise regime and stick to it? Check. Make lots of plans with friends to make the most of Autumn in your town? Check. There are so many things that we want to do come September and so many plans we actually want to stick to yet everyday pressures make it sometimes difficult. For this, we aim to stay as organised as we can - to do lists, planners, all the diaries in the world.... you name it and we'll probably have whatever new tool is promising a more organised life. A recent favourite we'd like to try? Plate Planner - a planner which aims to improve your organisation around meal times. We'll be using this to plan our dinners when we get in late from work in the evenings - no more empty fridge dilemmas! Similarly, to stay more organised when we are out and about, we'll be popping a mini Edie Pencil Case in our bags before we go out - how gorgeous are these?
2. Seize Inspiration - September is the best time to find the inspiration. After all, it is fashion month and what better way to get a little wardrobe inspiration that attending a catwalk show? London Fashion Week Festival puts on some great shows as well as industry talks and we can't wait for all the shopping opportunities. You can find more information here - and yes, we'll be the ones elbow deep in clothes! Another way we are seizing inspiration is by mixing up our outfits and playing with fabrics - how gorgeous is our Suede Clemmie Tote? A little twist on the classic leather Clemmie totes but a seasonal staple nonetheless.

3. A Kind Gesture - Following A-level results, so many hopeful and nervous students will be heading to University this September and chances are, someone close to you (whether a friend or relative!) is worried about making the big move too. Why not help them get organised for September and show them you're thinking of them with a little gift. Our favourites include a monogrammed Clemmie Tote or a cute Polly Keyring which is not only ideal as a good wish for a new house but also a helpful tool in minimising the lost key / locked out scenario which we all know too well.
Do you love September as much as we do? Let us know what you are most looking forward to this Autumn.
