LABOR DAY TRAVEL AND BEAUTY GUIDE
And just like that, Labor Day is upon us. It’s the unofficial end of summer and we’re excited for our last hurrah of the season. Whether you’re traveling, backyard barbecuing, at home or on a boat, we’ve got you covered. Read on for our best recommendations on where to go, what to do and of course, what beauty you should be armed with!
Labor Day Vacay
If La Jolla is within reach from where you are, it’s the perfect place for a short weekend getaway. With beautiful beaches and plenty of shopping, there’s no place we’d rather be. Visit the La Jolla Cove to scuba dive or snorkel, or perhaps just to watch the magical sunset. Plus, you can stop by our fabulous La Jolla store location just 0.3 miles away from the Cove to get all your beauty needs!
One of the most beautiful Colorado locations with glittering hotels, restaurants, and activities. Grab a bite at Sweet Basil, an iconic modern American restaurant with organic and sustainable food sources that tastes just as delicious as it is elegant. Right on the same street, you’ll find our amazing beauty specialists at our Vail location ready to help you with your beauty shopping or even a mini-makeover! Don’t forget to stop by the breathtaking Betty Ford Alpine Gardens during your trip, named the world’s highest botanical gardens at 8,200 feet at the foot of Vail Mountain.
The perfect European vacation may not be doable on a weekend, but visiting our Carmel is more than good enough for a romantic getaway. This peaceful and charming destination is filled with stunning views, art galleries, and wineries. You can find the best shopping at Carmel Plaza (of course that’s where our Carmel location is) and in its neighboring streets. Of course, nothing beats relaxing on the iconic Carmel Beach where you can do just about anything under the sun.
Just remember, no matter where you go: sunscreen is key. Summer may be coming to an end but we will always, always need sun protection. We’re loving the Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion WetForce SPF 50+ for any beach-related activities, the RéVive Sensitif Renewal Cream Daily Protection SPF 30 for your beauty prep moisturizer, and the AmorePacific Color Control Cushion Compact SPF 50+ for skincare & makeup in a compact!
End of Summer Beauty Favorites

Westman Atelier Baby Cheeks Blush Stick
The creamy texture makes this blush so easy to blend for a natural and radiant flush. You can use it on your lips and lids too!
Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence
Hydrates and refreshes before makeup or throughout the day. The natural formula plumps the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion. Plus, the floral scent is heavenly.

La Mer The Lip Volumizer

Maybe you’re staying home and doing nothing this weekend, which sounds just about perfect too. Treat yourself with your favorite book, a face mask, a nice candle or diffuser, a warm bath, maybe a movie marathon, or all of the above! These are some of our beauty and home favorites to accompany a stay-at-home vacation:
Sisley-Paris Velvet Sleeping Mask
Nourishes and revitalizes for your most beautiful skin.

Makes for a soft and elegant atmosphere to put you in your happy place.
