What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs,

blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and

format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

We’ve all adored the bright pinks and soft blues of cotton candy since we were kids. But those days are long behind us - just kidding! Now that we’re practically adults, we can decorate our bedrooms however we’d like. And if that means fulfilling a desire to make our bed a cotton candy inspired oasis, then let’s make our beds a sweet place to sleep - literally!

The color of your bedding is actually much more important than you might think. In fact, the color of your bedding is just as important as its material and quality. It has the power to impact your behavior, mood, and physical health. For example, a harmony of colors in your bedding creates a relaxing atmosphere and can improve your sleep pattern. 

Rest assured, there are numerous benefits to cotton candy colored bedding.

Light blue promotes good sleep and pleasant dreams. It’s mainly recommended to people who are sleep deprived or who regularly suffer from nightmares. Interior decorators have said that light blue bedding soothes your mind and reduces stress.

As for pink, it’s said to encourage good sleep, simulate the feeling of love, and enhance the comfort and safety of your bedroom environment. 

As poor sleep quality is prevalent among university students, which affects their academic performance and more importantly their mental health, choosing bedding that promotes good sleep should be on the top of your to-do list before you arrive at college. Hopefully this guide to cotton candy inspired bedding will promote a well-rested next four years! 

Reversible Jersey to Plush Comforter Set

First things first — you need a comforter. 

Pairing your mattress with comfortable bedding can create an even more inviting sleep space. For many people, a comforter that is just as much cozy as it is stylish makes a space that much more enjoyable to live in.

The Reversible Jersey to Plush Comforter Set will easily meet both of your needs. The cotton candy pink of this set will make you feel as though you're snuggling to a cloud of cotton candy. The reversible jersey fabric and plush serve to keep you cozy whatever your texture preference. 

The comforter is sold as a set including shams. It comes in the following sizes:

  • Twin XL - one comforter and one sham 
  • Full/Queen - one comforter and two shams 
  • King - one comforter and two shams

EcoPure® Cotton Filled Full-Queen Blanket

This lush pink blanket is going to be an absolute must have, and we’re not exaggerating. 

Your blanket is what sits on your bed right on top of everything else. It’s the first thing you think to wrap around yourself when you're cold, and it’s your top layer when you scrunch under your covers for the night. In other words, it’s the most important piece of bedding, and it has to be perfectly reminiscent of cotton candy pink. 

This blanket isn’t only the perfect color for your cotton candy inspired bedding, it’s also super high quality. 

The EcoPure Cotton Filled Blanket assures plenty of snuggling ahead. It offers both a small fingerprint on the planet with its recycled filling, and big doses of softness and coziness. It features a sewn-through box stitch construction so the filling stays in place for an even distribution of warmth and a more comfortable sleep. 

The cover is 100% cotton, while the fill is  70% virgin polyester and 30% recycled polyester from plastic bottles. 

Handmade Knit Throw in Pink

If a knit throw is more your style, we’ve still got you covered. 

The Handmade Knit Throw in Pink is a high fashion throw blanket for a high fashion dorm room. Inspired by oversized knit blankets, this blanket takes the shedding out, but leaves all the style you want for your college bed. It makes a great throw for your bed or over a chair. 

And since the little details matter in planning the perfect dorm room, it measures 50x60 and it’s 100% polyester.  

Twin XL Microplush Blanket

If you want a little more contrast between your comforter and your blanket, you can opt for Twin XL Microplush Blanket in Light Blue.

This blanket is not only the perfect color for your cotton candy inspired bedding, but it’s also an absolute must-have for any college dorm room bedding set. This super soft blanket is designed with an extended twin XL shape to easily throw on your bed or drape over a chair or futon. It’s also conveniently machine washable.

Calming Weighted 15 Pound Blanket

Nope, we’re not done with blankets yet. 

A weighted blanket is slowly but surely going to become your best friend. It might feel a little suffocating under all that extra weight at first, but after a few nights you won’t be able to sleep without the simulation of a constant warm hug in the form of a heavy blanket. 

Weighted blankets are therapeutic blankets that weigh between 5 to 30 pounds. The pressure from the extra weight mimics a therapeutic technique called deep pressure stimulation. 

Deep pressure stimulation typically uses hands-on pressure to relieve pain, lessen anxiety, and improve mood. But deep pressure stimulation doesn’t have to be hands on. With weighted blankets, the same pressure comes from having the blanket wrapped around the body.

A weighted blanket provides a calm, relaxing effect that is perfect for someone adjusting to the stress of college. And you’re probably going to want this to match your cotton candy inspired theme as well.

This 15-pound weighted throw blanket in Pink is made out of plush fleece, a snuggly and cozy fabric, and is finished with poly satin piping on all sides. The super soft cover is removable to allow for easy washing. Again, it’s perfect for someone in college who is just getting the hang of this whole “laundry” thing. The quilted, weighted insert is filled with polystyrene pellets and ties to the cover to stay in place. 

It measures 54" W x 72" L.  The cover is 100% plush polyester, while the insert is 65% polyester and 35% cotton. 

Premium Supersoft Washed Microfiber 3-Piece Twin XL Sheet Set - Solids

These super soft sheets will keep you well rested all year long. And the light blue certainly doesn’t hurt your cotton candy aesthetic. 

The Supersoft Washed Microfiber Three-Piece Twin XL Sheet Set is made from soft microfiber for both softness and breathability. The high-density, soft microfiber is vintage washed to give it a supersoft, “never-get-out-of-bed” feeling. 

It’s perfectly sized to fit those longer college beds and it includes deeper 10” pockets for accommodating mattress pads, egg crates, and memory foam toppers. 

Included is one fitted sheet, one flat sheet, and one standard pillowcase.

Cotton Blend 4-Piece Full Sheet Set

If you want to add some flare to your cotton candy inspired bedding, try these Kaleidoscope styled sheets. They’ll be hidden under your comforter most of the time (if you make your bed!), so you don’t have to worry about them clashing with any of your other decor. They’ll just add a little bit of pop!

These sheets are not only stylish, they’re also comfortable and durable thanks to their cotton-rich blend.

They’re sized to fit full XL beds and guaranteed to fit extra-long college beds. They have deeper 10” pockets for accommodating mattress pads, egg crates, or memory foam toppers.

Each set includes one fitted sheet, one flat top sheet, and two matching standard pillowcases. 

Martex Purity Full Sheet Set

We’re going back to the basics with this Martex Purity Full Sheet Set, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be spiced up with a little cotton candy inspired light blue.

And, in fact, these sheets are anything but basic. These sheets feature Silverbac technology. The silver infused threads help to protect and eliminate harmful odor causing bacteria. Silverbac is a proprietary technology that infuses polyester with a small amount of silver, which makes the silver a part of the fiber. This means the silver threads will never wash out and lasts the lifetime of the product. 

The set includes one fitted sheet, one flat sheet and two pillowcases. The flat sheet and pillowcases are detailed with a four inch self-cuff, and the fitted sheet is detailed with an all-around elastic band for a secure fit. The fitted sheet fits mattresses up to 19 inches.

Keller Faux Mongolian Body Pillow

Some may say you don’t need a body pillow, and while that’s true, they’re not just for show. 

Body pillows help you rest more comfortably whether you have back pain, are suffering from sleep apnea, are looking to improve your posture, or just need something to cuddle up against while you fall asleep.

The pillows conform to your shape, and they usually stay in place even if you toss and turn.

The Keller Faux Mongolian Body Pillow has a solid color faux fur front with a dyed to match micro mink back. With a pink faux fur front, one might think this pillow is just another factor contributing to your aesthetic, but it will actually probably help you adjust to college in more ways than one. 

Pom Throw Pillow

Okay, what better for your cotton candy aesthetic than a pom throw pillow that actually looks like a fluffy piece of pink cotton candy? Nothing? That’s what we thought.

The Pom Throw Pillow is designed in a round shape and made with faux fur to add just a little bit of coziness to any space. 

The only problem? You might not be able to settle for just one of these. They’re just so darn cute! Maybe grab two or three to make it really seem like you’re sleeping on a bed of cotton candy.

Mina Victory Organic Cotton Throw Blanket

When you want to make a space feel more cozy and welcoming, adding blankets around that space is a great way to do that. Visually, they add softness. And practically, they’ll keep you and your guests warm.

The Mina Victory Organic Cotton Throw Blanket in Light Blue is just the finishing touch you need to pull your cotton candy inspired bedding together. Maybe it’s not a coincidence that the piece that will pull your room together may also bring you and some potential friends together by making your space more inviting!
