Life Lesson #38: Treat Yourself on Your Birthday

This week I am turning 38.  First off, I am not happy about that extra candle on my cake, but I realize that at 38, with 2 kids and 10 years of marriage, I’ll be lucky to get a birthday cake.  I can’t even remember the last time I was able to blow out a candle and make a birthday wish.  Don’t get me wrong, I realize I sound about 10 and I am super grateful for the celebrations my family and friends have planned for me.  But as far as the special day itself, I wasn’t about to let it go uncelebrated.  I decided to take matters into my own hands and started with taking the day off from work.


My birthday celebration will begin after I drop the kids off at school and head over to the Moana Lani Spa, a Heavenly Spa by Westin and the only ocean front spa in Waikiki located in the Moana Surfrider.  I will be treated to their 80 minute signature lomi facial which will help in reducing my fine lines and wrinkles caused not only by aging but due to the lack of sleep for the past 6-7 years (note my oldest turned 7 in April). 80 minutes of relaxation? Sounds perfect and just what this Mommy needs.


After that indulgent experience, I will be heading over to the Kristin Wood Lash Studio, Hawaii’s premier eyelash studio, to be pampered with eyelash extensions because one must get gorgeous on their birthday (life lesson #37).  And these are not just any eyelash extensions, Kristen’s advanced new Ready-to-Wear product line Facet Lashes are designed for today’s modern woman.  The semi-permanent Facet Lashes dramatically enhance the length and thickness of the natural lash, while maintaining an overall natural look.  


Stay tuned for the results of my birthday experience.  I can’t wait to share them with you and hope to inspire you to treat yourself on your special day because you most definitely deserve it.
