How to make your Birthday special

Post may contain affiliate links. Disclosure policy here

It is Sunday evening and I finished a fantastic Birthday weekend, actually it was a whole Birthday week. Starting from last Monday until today, I decided to do something special for myself each day leading up to my actual Birthday last Friday – I really had fun with it. As a child we are always so excited about Birthdays, Holidays and Celebrations, as adults this magic is often lost and we just move through those days and on with our lives. But then life consists out of memories and special moments – and it is really up to us what we make of it. So I decided to make this Birthday special – ย create good memories and enjoy myself.

Here are some ideas and things I did:

  1. Buy flowers. Not only are they gorgeous to look at and very decorative, they also let us know that we are valued and most important deserve beauty in our lives.
  2. Get yourself a new scented candle. They are relaxing and soothing and give us the feeling of luxury. They make us feel calm and peaceful and can have a positive effect on our mind and mood.
  3. Make a movie night and watch your all time favorites and have snacks and treats or a pizza party.
  4. Share some Prosecco with your friends/ coworkers / clients – as long as it is appropriate in your work environment of course.
  5. Go and buy yourself a present – because you deserve it ๐Ÿ™‚
  6. Check into the spa for some serious pampering and time out. It is good to relax and check out from the daily routine to regenerate the body, mind and soul.
  7. Check out a new Restaurant you always wanted to visit. One of my new places this weekend was the Waldorf Astoria Rooftop in Beverly Hills and it exceeded everybody’s expectations. The view is nothing less than spectacular and it is the perfect place to enjoy Los Angeles to it’s fullest.
  8. Have a swanky date with a great girlfriend, great food and great conversations at one of your favorite places in town. My choice for this time was The Ivy on Robertson – you can’t beat the charming french country decor, the good food, great service and of course – the glass of champagne offered to you upon your arrival.
  9. Go for a delicious Sunday Brunch on a Rooftop. My friend took me to The Highlight Room in Hollywood, a lovely place with a Grill that opens at 7am daily, a pool and ย a lounge area – and fabulous view of the Hollywood Hills ๐Ÿ™‚
  10. And don’t forget to stop and appreciate all the little things in life you like and are important to you – let work be just work for the day and focus on yourself. Create your own happy place and cherish it. It’s your Birthday after all ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a great start into the week

An Inspiring Week

Hello Everybody! I am back! Yay ๐Ÿ™‚

Last week I have been invited to judge the Hollywood Dancesport Championships in Los Angeles, a very prestigious Ballroom Dance Competition organized by Michael Chapman, Mary Murphy and Jonathan Roberts.

We also had students from our studio competing and my husband Dmitry was filming his Ballroom Backstage episodes with Interviews and Insights about the competition and the dancers.

Everybody came back very inspired, and we are getting ready for our Showcase on Saturday, so no breaks for us but that’s OK.

I have been asked about my outfits by so many people at the competition, many of the items I wore were actually from my own collection I am developing. I am not quite ready to launch yet but I am getting there, if you want to have first dibs or want to be among the first to know, please sign up for my email list, it is the best way to connect to me.

I have also been told by people that they would love to shop my closet or style and this is exactly what you can do here on this blog – if you like something, just click on the links and it takes you to the place where you can find it and purchase it.

If you have any questions, please let me know, you can either contact me or simply comment on the posts, I will be happy to hear from you.

A Cozy Home

1./2./3./4./5./6./7./8./9.

Happy Weekend,

I love to be at home, it is my place to recharge and with my busy lifestyle I feel I constantly battle to keep everything balanced. Especially home… sometimes it just turns into a place to change clothes, pack another bag, wash some clothes and go again. But honestly, I do not like that. I like beautiful homes, I like decorating for the seasons, I like beautifully set tables, fine china for special meals, candles and I love organized and clutter free places. I guess I am a little old fashioned when it comes to that but it makes me happy. I found a few cute accessories for home, something for fall season, subtle and pretty and a little fun and of course some luxury. I love the cashmere throws…. soooo soft.

Thanks so much for stopping by,

xo BB
