This month I turn 30! Eeek! I’m pretty excited, and as I’ve already decided this month will be the month of treat yo’self I thought I’d lay out my plans therein.

Travel ¦¦ Yep this one’s the biggie. I’m off to Santorini! I can’t wait. We’re going for 4 days and I expect to get my annual dose of vitamin D in one hit.
I’m also going to be spending part of a weekend in London celebrating the 30th of my lovely friend, seeing another friend play in a concert, and hosting another friend and showing her the delights of Bedford.
Family ¦¦ I’m spending the last weekend of the month with my Mum and sister. It’s a bank holiday weekend so we should have lots of time to do genteel things like eat lots of birthday cake.
Shopping ¦¦ I didn’t think I was a bit shopper but I’ve already bought things from Long Tall Sally and SheIn under the guise of holiday wear but as I’m only going for the aforementioned 4 days I feel I may have overcooked it. Full report to follow.
I’ve also found a pretty decent pair of jeans for tall people from Topshop, which I’d give a 7/10. The shape is lovely, nice soft fabric, but they stretch out like nobody’s business. So that’s a bit of shame, but they were only £38 so that’s better than spending £65 on a Long Tall Sally pair that do the same.
Spa related activities ¦¦ I’m not really a fan of massages and I didn’t enjoy the one facial I had once, so I think I might go for some slightly more low-key options like brow and lash tinting, and maybe getting my nails done.
Hair ¦¦ My hair is in desperate need for a cut and colour, having had nothing done to it for well over 6 months. I’ve booked in to a new place and I’m excited to see how it turns out. I’m going just before my holidays as well so I should be salon fresh!
Moving to self hosted WordPress ¦¦ Yikes. I’ve been thinking about this for a while and I think it’s time to make the switch. No time like the present, etc. I’ve been reluctant due to the cost of it (and hassle factor, I know nothing about coding) because I don’t monetise this site and have no plans to. However, people spend money on their hobbies all the time, and often a darn sight more than the cost of hosting for a year, so maybe I shouldn’t be so hard on myself. Most nerdy birthday present to myself ever??
Eat what I want ¦¦ I’m still trying to be healthy when I can, but as this is my birthday month, if I want to eat cake I’m going to eat cake.
Go to the cinema ¦¦ I love the cinema, I really do. It’s an expensive treat these days but if something takes my fancy I think I might splash out. I might suggest a trip with my sister and Mum because they’ve got a fancy cinema near them that’s got sofas and waiter service! A Hologram for the King (trailer) looks like it might be good, so I may see if they’re interested in that
Thus commenceth my birthday month. Happy 30 to me!
