labor day

Now that you’ve gotten into the groove of school, it’s time to take a break from that hectic schedule! We all know that stress takes no time to creep back into our lives once the school year begins, but thanks to Labor Day, an extra day of rest and relaxation awaits you! So what’s the best way to spend your long weekend? We’ve got a few ideas up our sleeve…

Plan a girls’ night, because who doesn’t love those? Start early and hit the mall to check out which fall trends are calling your name, and wrap the night up with junk food and chick flicks!

Pamper yourself! There’s no better time than an extra day off to pull out all the stops. Sleep in, take a bubble bath, exfoliate, give yourself a mani/pedi… you know the drill! Relax and start the week feeling refreshed.

Enjoy the last long days of warmth while you can! Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer, so take advantage and go swimming, host a barbecue… just enjoy the great outdoors.

Not feeling social? No biggie—throw on your comfiest PJs, cuddle up with some blankets and prepare to binge watch a new series on Netflix. Need some recommendations? Netflix just added Season 4 of ABC’s Once Upon A Time, the movie adaptation of Gayle Forman’s If I Stay, and much more! And no worries… if you find yourself forced to share the TV, a good book is always a safe alternative!

Stage an overhaul! Try being productive and remodeling your room a bit. You can reorganize your desk for optimal study time this semester, finally print and hang those pics you’ve been thinking about, even create your own photo wall! Time to put that “dream décor” Pinterest board to use!
