How to Have an Awesome Birthday

June 26 2016 | CeCe Olisa

I used to be the type of person who always had huge birthday parties.

It was fun for me to bring all of my friends together to do something that I enjoy, but over the past few birthdays my desires have really changed.

Instead of focusing on having a really epic day, I choose to have a really awesome and positive day.

That looks different from year to year, but here are some of my favorite things to do on my birthday:

Make a List… Check it Twice:

It’s really easy for me to get caught up in what I haven’t accomplished yet, but this year I’m making a list of five things I’ve accomplished since my last birthday and five things I want to accomplish by my next birthday. Let’s call it, A Year of Loving Myself, the Remix

Wear a cute outfit:

No matter what I do on my birthday I want to wear something cute. Sometimes it’s a crop top and a skirt, sometimes it’s shorts and a denim shirt. This year, I need an excuse to break out my pink bow shoes, so… a dress, it is!

Buy Myself Flowers:

Okay, this is actually a new one for me. Roses are my birth flower and every year on my birthday I know I’ll get flowers from my Dad (and the guy I’m dating…) but this year I decided that I shouldn’t wait for flowers to arrive. I should buy some for myself! A girl can never have too many roses in her apartment, right?

Did you know that you can get gorgeous pink roses from Amazon?

Book a Trip:

Because of theCURVYcon, it’s almost impossible for me to get out of town on my actual birthday, but I’ve spent the weekend looking a trip options. I’m torn between a warm beach and europe… what should I choose? Either way there are some amazing deals on Jetsetter and JetBlue

Be a Mermaid:

As a summer baby, my birthday isn’t complete without some time by the pool. So, while I wait for my upcoming trip to arrive I’ll find a rooftop pool here in NYC and enjoy my wonderful day.

    Happy Birthday CeCe, today is my birthday. I often buy myself a gift, take myself out for a special, private dinner. (Just e and a great restaurant), cute outfits are good and so is jewelry~~~or shoes. I also enjoy a special dinner with my family on my birthday and sometimes a day off! This year I decided to wait until next Monday and extend my 4th celebration to include birthday behavior and a couple of extra days off. Happy birthday Cancer baby! Enjoy your day and week!
