Yay! It’s NOVEMBER and it’s my birthday month 🥳 🎉I usually don’t have a month-long celebration, but as we grow older, my perspective changed somehow because of my realizations in life. As a child, I remember celebrating my birthday with a cake, balloon, delicious foods, and of course, on that significant day, I receive birthday presents. That’s the tradition we follow through the years. It’s a celebration of life 🥂 and being thankful 🙏 for every blessing and opportunity that we have received each year. Probably you are wondering why on earth am I having this 30 days of celebration 🤣😂, well it’s because I just want to express how exhilarated and ecstatic I am for my existence.
Day 1 (Monday) November 1️⃣ – Treat yourself for a cone of your favorite ice cream 🍦
I super love ❤️ ice cream 🍦 that’s why I want to start my celebration with my favorite cheese ice cream! This is one of the perfect ways to cool down. HELLO, NOVEMBER! I’m ready for ya and yes, let’s start the ball rollin’ and start the celebration 🎉 #Hello, November #sweettreats
DAY 2 (Tuesday) November 2️⃣- Host a Giveaway
I am so thankful because this year has given me a lot of blessings and I would like to give back by hosting a giveaway to my followers today. Oh yes, I will select 2 winners for Tutors’ Lounge’s Reading & Math group classes for 4-6 years old (worth P1500 for 20 sessions). The winners will be announced on my page tonight!
If you don’t have a Facebook page or you are not a content creator, you can also do this by simply sharing or sharing something to the needy ❤️
Day 3 (Wednesday) November 3️⃣ – Be an event planner for your own birthday 🎂 🎪🎉
Actually, I have originally planned to spend my birthday at Crimson Boracay as a birthday treat for myself (I booked a 4d/3n stay) but since something really important came up, I had to reschedule everything at the last week of this month (the flights, hotel 🏨 booking, and RT PCR test). So, I will spend my birthday at home 🏠 and I have to think of a simple way to celebrate it since I have already allotted something for my birthday vacation. So, today, I am planning to organize my simple Pizza party 🍕 with family @ home. I’ll start with the decorations (inexpensive and reusable pink foil curtain plus white tutu table skirt, balloons and banner), of course, the menu (just enough for 6 pax) Estimated budget: More or less P4,500.
Day 4 (Thursday) November 4️⃣- Order your birthday outfit 💃
Whether you don’t have a budget for this or you do, you need to decide on your birthday outfit or look. I was thinking of using a new glittery blouse that I would match with my used but new-looking red high-waist shorts. I changed my mind because I found a cute red dress online 😃. After all, it’s for my birthday and I would like to look fabulous. I can also wear that dress on some occasions, so I think it’s a good decision 😊
Day 5 (Friday) November 5️⃣- Give yourself the gift of a healthy and fit body by starting the day with a workout session 💪
No need to go to the gym because you can do a simple workout at home 🏠. I have chosen the Walk at Home program by Leslie Sansone. I always start my day with the WAH session before I take a shower and have my breakfast. Aside from achieving a nice figure (which I need badly because of my beach vacay this month), health is one of my priorities, that’s why it’s one the inexpensive gifts 🎁 that I can give to myself. It’s just a matter of discipline and hard work 😓
Day 6 (Saturday) November 6️⃣- Declutter and start decorating for the upcoming events and holidays 🎁🎄👔🎉
Since it’s weekend, I am in the mood for decluttering. I have started yesterday with some of the stuff, but I guess this house really needs a total makeover and since we are all busy, we can’t really find the time to have a general cleaning as well. So, we just allot a day or two in a week if we have the time to clean one area in the house. Well, I think for today, we will start with the Christmas tree 🎄. I thought the Christmas tree decors are missing, but yay, we found the box 📦! I just ordered additional decors from my PS Cat 🥰. (I will post the pictures later) 😊
Day 7 (Sunday) November 7️⃣- Sweet Treats For You Today! 🍫
Today, I will be treating myself with chocolates 🍫 since today is rest day for my WAH routine, it’s cheat time as well 😂. I deserve these anyway, it’s my birthday month so it’s time for sweet pleasures 🥰❤️
Day 8 (Monday) November 8️⃣- Organize your Working Area 📇
It feels so good to have a tidy working space so if you have one at home, you can also do that.
Day 9 (Tuesday) November 9️⃣- Enjoy Your Rest and Chill at Home 🏠
It’s actually a one-week rest for my workout because I’ve been bleeding since Oct 26, but fortunately, since I stopped doing my WAH routine since yesterday, I think it’s going to stop soon. The bleeding is also light since this morning and I will just resume my WAH 🚶♀️session on the 15th but I will limit it to a mile walk or very light workout.
I am still working (on bedrest 🛌) but I’m getting better ❤️🩹.
Day 10 (Wednesday) November 🔟- Look radiant 🌟 with your Skincare Routine 🧴
Make sure your skin is glowing by having your skincare routine. If you still don’t do this, it’s time to reward yourself.
Day 11 (Thursday) November 11- Finalize and order the food for your birthday 🎂 🗓
Yes, it’s just gonna be simple- a lunch for the family (6 pax) so to be practical and to save time and effort, I ordered group meal at Shakey’s so they will just deliver the food on Saturday. I think a cake 🎂 and the cheese 🧀 platter will complete it. It’s just to celebrate my existence 🥳🎉, no need to be extravagant 😊
Day 12 (Friday) November 12- Grocery Shopping Day 🛒
One way to celebrate is to buy stuff for yourself— chocolates, yogurt 🍦, cookies 🍪, and a lot more. I bought stuff not only for myself. In fact, I treated Hubby and my eldest too 😊
Day 13 (Saturday) November 13- Simple Pizza 🍕 Lunch with Fam
I just opted to celebrate my birthday at home 🏠 and ordered a pizza meal for us for lunch. We just had a simple lunch with my family.
Day 14 (Sunday) November 14- Rest Day
This day is the last day for my one-week bedrest and of course, I took advantage of it because this is the opportunity for me to recharge myself and relax for the busy days to come.
Day 15 (Monday) November 15- I’m Back!
Yes, the one-week bedrest is over! My WAH 🚶morning routine is back. This morning, I just had my 30-minute walk. It feels good to be strong 💪 again — I actually need a beach-ready body and I think a two-week exercise will help me achieve my goals. Aside from that, part of the month-long celebration is of course, to get more clients. I need to be physically fit to be a blessing also to other people. ❤️
Day 16 (Tuesday) November 17- Reward yourself with a staycation
I booked for a staycation this morning, but this will be for December. After a few months of working so hard, I definitely need to unwind.
You deserve it , so feel free to reward yourself with a new furnishing or item for your room (bedroom/office). I decided to add a new table for my printer and laptop in my office area.
Day 17 (Wednesday) November 17- Reward yourself with a new item for your bedroom
If you have a budget for a new furnishing or item for your bedroom, you can add to cart now. You deserve to have a room makeover anyway! 😊
Day 18 (Thursday) November 18- Business Planning Day 👩💼🗄
Because I have a month-long birthday celebration, of course, I need to get in the mood to work, work, work! I need to carefully plan for my business for 2022. Today is the day to motivate myself more.
Day 19 (Friday) November 19- Netflix Day 💻
It’s not that I feel lazy, in fact, I work all the time, even on weekends and holidays. Today, I just want to give myself time to breathe and relax ☺️ K-drama time ⏰
Day 20 (Saturday) November 20- Coffee weekend
This is a reminder for you not to miss coffee ☕️, as the weekend is the perfect time for you to relax. Go and get yourself a cup of coffee whether at home or a cafe.
Day 21 (Sunday) November 21- Shopping 🛍 Day
It’s the time to give yourself a reward by giving yourself not only a birthday present, but some stuff for Christmas as well. If you don’t have a budget yet, you can just stroll and have window shopping instead.
Day 22 (Monday) November 22- Cleaning Day
Just a time to clean some stuff in the living room. Because I will be having my vacay this weekend, I was in the mood to organize things 😄
Day 23 (Tuesday) November 23- Sweets Day 🍰🥮
Month-long celebration means having some cheat time for sweets too. Because it’s Bruce’s birthday today, an excuse for me to do that 😂
Day 24 (Wednesday) November 24- Hair Pampering Session Day 💇♀️
You deserve a hair pampering session this month. Go to the salon and have a haircut/hair treatment. If you don’t have the budget to do this, you can always DIY. Just make sure that you have your hair treatment kit at home or leave on conditioner or hair vitamins will do 😊
Day 25 (Thurs) November 25- Plan and finalize your birthday trip
So I have already planned to leave for Boracay this weekend, but this is the day for me to finalize everything— my detailed itinerary and outfit guide for my 5d/4n vacay, things to buy and pack, etc. I am also going to have my RT PCR test today 😊
This post will be updated each day. (From November 1-30, 2021) I hope that you will take some time to check 😔 You can also do this on your birthday month 🎂❤️
