As we get older, the appeal of a giant bag of trick or treat candy starts to lose its appeal (especially if you are like me and too much sugar makes your skin hate you). Instead of wearing a stinky latex monster mask, I'd rather opt for a pore refining charcoal mask. It just so happens, your favorite Sugarhouse day spa has a remedy for those who feel they are outgrowing Halloween: Trick Or Treat Yourself! Yes, friends - cozy up on this fall eve with your favorite scents and pamper yourself with some of our favorite luxury items. Put your mask on, kick up your feet, and turn on the bath water - we promise you'll feel like a kid on Halloween, with all the treats and no tricks.
An anthropological phenomenon of the 21st century, we really have no idea how or where this originated from, but I've found myself dawning this look frequently in the fall months because, hey, "The Basic" look is COMFY! Who doesn't love the smell of pumpkin spice on a crisp autumn morning and a big cozy sweater paired with cute boots? Every fall without fail, the iconic 'lewk' resurfaces, it's clear that the "basic" isn't going anywhere. With this notion, I exclaim: If you can't beat em' join em'. This is your basic girl's guide to all things autumn, keeping you cozy and cute during your favorite season!
My name is Liz and I am overjoyed to call myself a new addition to the Got Beauty Family! In December 2017, I sold almost all of my things, packed up my little green hatchback and drove across from country from Pennsylvania to make a new life for myself here in Salt Lake City, Utah. Just barely 6 months ago, I distinctly remember holding my mom at the gas station at 7 o'clock in the morning the day of my departure (a 27 hour long drive) while we both sobbed uncontrollably. While I was both terrified and excited to embark on what would prove to be the greatest adventure of my life to date, leaving my mom and my younger brother was the most arduous part of the journey. I am writing this today with a smile on the face and warmth in my heart because there is no way I would have been able to make this journey without the strength and tenacity my mother instilled in me. While my mom is not in the same state as me, I look in the mirror everyday and I see her. For that, I am endlessly grateful. For that, I write this blog. For that, I live every day to be the strong, independent, upstanding woman she raised me to be. Thank you Kathy.
A mother’s love is a timeless gift that keeps giving for a lifetime and beyond. So if you’re like me, choosing a Mother’s Day gift can be stressful. It is not just another gift-giving holiday, after all. It is the most important holiday, and it stresses me out because the truth is - there is nothing that we can buy for our moms that could ever amount to the love these ladies have showered upon us throughout our lifetime. The greatest gift we can give our Mothers is to live as strong, upstanding women and men, and to carry on the legacy they have instilled in us.
