Everyone likes going to the beach or flying out of town for Labor Day weekend—but if you forgot to make plans good luck getting a ticket out of town at this point. Luckily, there's plenty of ways to have a relaxing long weekend without ever leaving your town. And the best part is, you don't even need to put on a swimsuit (though, I mean, you can, if you want. I'm not going to stop you).
Here are some of the best ideas for throwing your own staycation this weekend.

Work through your to-be-read pile.
On a normal Monday, you don't have time to spend hours lying in bed or in your backyard with a book. But for your staycation, it's a must.
Tomorrow is Autumn 🍂 YAS YAS YAS! It's finally the time to take out your big sweaters, blankets fuzzy socks, tea and candles if you haven't. The cozy season is here!! 🍁 . I'm trying to rounding up all of the creepy books that I have for Autumn, and this book from my loveliest @lumierewhispers will be added to my "most anticipated read" tbr this autumn 🙈💛Thank you for this wonderful birthday gift my love ♥️ . Anyway, tell me three things of your autumn essentials (Book is not included because... it's a must!). For me : tea, candles, and oversized sweaters! YOUR TURN! 💛
Have a picnic in your nearest park.
After all, who knows when the next warm day is going to be?
Take a break from social media.
Or put your phone on airplane mode so you can access your camera, but not the internet.
hello dears - just a quick note to let you know I'm going to be taking a tiny break from JUST the social media side of beautycounter - my site & my self will still be available for your BC needs ANYTIME - so don't hesitate to contact me if you want info, samples, bulk order inquiries, whatevah. It's just, between work, two girls, two dogs, kory still gone & (hopefully) my very last semester of classes that just started, I'm sorta swamped 🤷🏼♀️ & feel the urgent need to simplify any extras 😬 This is just for now, until I get things a little bit more dialed. Hit a sister up - anything you need in the mean time. So much love to all of you beauty babes! I'll see you on the other side of my social media hiatus. 😎 #beautycounter #betterbeauty #saferbeauty #socialmediabreak #seeyouafterigetmylifetogether #couldbeawhile #finalsemester #whoa
Buy some flowers.
Making your home look and smell nice will make it a bit less depressing to go home to.
Have a spa day.
Whether that means actually spending money at a day spa or giving yourself a facial.
Try a new restaurant.
You know that place you've been meaning to go to? Don't heat up a microwavable meal this weekend—just go!
There's no more important tip than just letting yourself really relax this weekend.
Have fun, staycationers!
