Turning 30 is a significant milestone, and it should not be downplayed or overlooked. Start thinking about how you want to be pampered well in advance, so you can make all the arrangements necessary to have an over-the-top pampered experience because you deserve it.
1. Treat yourself to a spa day.
There are few things more relaxing and luxurious than a spa day. You can have the best spa day ever while celebrating your 30th birthday by yourself or with friends. You can book an all-day spa experience and get pampered from head to toe. Every girl needs to be pampered, and Endota Spa is ready to deliver the best experience possible with lots of options.
2. Go on a solo road trip to a must-see destination.
Everyone has a list of places they want to go “one day.” Now is the time to do something just for you, and go somewhere you want to go. Pick a destination and plan a road trip. You can make it a full day or an entire weekend. It is totally up to you because you are the birthday girl.
3. Get a puppy!
Getting a new puppy is one of the most joyous things a person can do. Getting a new puppy for your 30th birthday takes an ordinary celebration and turns up the volume. Go to a local rescue and find a puppy that desperately needs a forever home. You can find love by giving love, and then you’ll share your birthday with your puppy’s gotcha day.
4. Eat at a fancy restaurant.
It’s not too often you have an opportunity to go dress up in your most elegant clothes, go to an upscale restaurant, and be served a multi-course meal. Turning 30 is a monumental occasion and one that needs to be celebrated monumentally. Take a friend or partner with you, so you can enjoy the experience with someone who will also savor the opportunity. White House Black Market has a wide selection of gorgeous sheath dresses that you can wear for your fancy night on the town.
5. Get a ticket to see your favorite band.
When was the last time you splurged on something like concert tickets? When was the last time you heard your favorite band play live, if ever? There are so many once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, and you don’t want to miss out. You don’t want to wait until after you find out the lead singer died to wish you took the time to hear them in concert. Look up their tour dates, find one that works for you, and buy the tickets.
6. Plan a staycation.
A staycation is a relatively new term to describe planning a vacation that doesn’t involve going anywhere. You can become a local tourist, visiting local attractions you’ve never taken the time to enjoy. You can plan out your meals at locally-owned restaurants, and partake in other local businesses and activities. Often people who live in vacation destinations don’t participate in vacation activities because, for them, it is all just part of everyday life. Take a look at your community as if you have never been there before, and go sightseeing. You can even go to your local Chamber of Commerce to get recommendations of what to do around town.
7. Bake yourself a birthday cake.
Baking yourself a birthday cake makes it extra special because you put the time and love into creating something just for you. Too often by the time we reach 30, your life revolves around your family, your job, your friends, and everything else going on. Don’t go into it as something you need to get done, go into it with love and patience for yourself. Take the time to enjoy the process, and you’ll enjoy the cake even more.
