Top 5 Ways to Celebrate a Milestone Birthday
Do you have one of these big dates approaching? If so, we highly recommend taking time to splash out on a special birthday experience. Yes, yes, celebrate the everyday too but let's face it, sometimes you need an excuse to shake things up and go big - whatever that means to you. Here are 5 fun ways to party like you're 29/39/49...... Choose one or choose them all. Technically 'birthday year' is a thing.
1 - BEACH VACATION WITH YOUR GIRLS
Spend time in nature, get energy from the sea, eat seafood, learn something new. Embarrass yourself on a surfboard, play margarita beach volleyball, or help baby turtles get from their hatching sites to the ocean. Whatever it is, you'll be in a sunshine state of mind.
2 - VACATION SOLO
Find a quiet place out of your everyday routine (preferably with a spa within 500m) and treat yourself to some alone time. Make sure you cross the 3-day threshold because that's when the introspection, relaxation and benefits really kick in. To expedite that journey inward consider some sound bathing or meditation experiences.
3 - INVEST IN A PERSONALIZED SIGNET RING
Signet rings, or signature pieces of jewelry, are an expression of who you are and who you want to be. Putting them on each day is like a little practice of re-committing to the values and aspirations they represent. Just like an engagement ring, invest a little time in the process and make it fun. Play with different sizes, shapes and fingers to see what sparks joy.
4 - FANCY DRESS PARTY
Pick a posh restaurant and tell your friends to dress up in their finest for an evening of fun. Make them feel special too by serving champagne, your favourite foods (because everything seems fancy when you serve it with champagne!) and dancing the night away to songs you all know the lyrics to!
5 - CATERED HOUSE CONCERT
If you have never been to a house concert it's a pretty intimate experience and brings up all the feels! Whether it's an East Coast kitchen party with an energetic fiddle trio, or a soft Indie set list, let your emotions fuel the party. Hot tip - to keep the party going well past midnight serve tequila shots at 11pm and a standing midnight buffet. Don't forget the best part, after the music has shut down, kick off your shoes and cuddle up on the sofa with those special stragglers for memorable conversations that last into the wee hours.
We hope you find something that sparks your imagination and happy birthday to you!
