5 Things to Do During Your Birthday Week


I cannot contain my excitement. I always turn into a little kid when any holiday comes around and let's be honest, my birthday is the best holiday of all! HAHA! :)

My birthday is on Sunday, so this week I have literally been all smiles in anticipation. I've always been the type of person that never waits until the actual day to celebrate. I usually need a week if not the entire month to celebrate my special day. I thought as I got older, my love for my birthday would start to fade a little and I would not be so pressed to celebrate. So far, I have been extremely wrong! I love my birthday and I don't think there's anything wrong with that.

Anyway, this post is for those of you who are like me and enjoy birthday celebrations longer than just a day. I'm here to share 5 Things to Do During Birthday Week so that your birthday festivities can carry on and on! :)

5 Things to Do During Your Birthday Week

1. Cash in on ALL Your Birthday Rewards
When you belong to Rewards program's at different retailers and restaurants, most of them will e-mail you or mail you a birthday coupon or two. Some of them even offer you FREE things (hello Buffalo Wild Wings and Sephora!). Be sure to check the expiration dates of your rewards and take advantage of them while you can.
2. Pamper Yourself
Go get a massage! Go get a mani/pedi! Whatever pampering yourself looks like to you, your birthday week is the perfect opportunity to do it. You can even take a nice bubble bath with some lit candles. Self-care should be a year round thing, but your birthday is a great time to indulge.
3. Indulge on ALL the Sweets
Eat the cake! :) Or whatever your favorite dessert is. If you want to eat some type of dessert every day during your birthday week, go right ahead. No one is judging you! Enjoy because after all, YOLO. 
4. Go Shopping for a Birthday Outfit
Shopping always makes me happy and wearing something new on my birthday is something I always love to do. Will you be celebrating your birthday by going to dinner or some other type of outing? Perfect. Buy an outfit for that occasion. If not, a new pair of jeans never hurt anyone, right?!
5. Have Dinner at Your Favorite Restaurant
Your birthday week is the BEST excuse to have dinner at your favorite place. It's nice sometimes to try a new restaurant maybe ON your birthday, but if time allows, why not visit your favorite restaurant during your birthday week? Yep, you should!

Do you celebrate your birthday on just one day? Or do you celebrate for a whole week? :)

Thanks so much for reading! xo
