The time has come to pack away the Halloween decor (but leave the Reese’s out!), say goodbye to the beautiful fall foliage (it’s very un-fall like in the 70’s this week), and hello to the start of gift guides (is it that time already?). November is my absolute favorite month…because it is my birthday month. Yes, I said month! I believe in having more than just one day to celebrate your birthday, so I’ll be ringing mine in for the whole month. Let the countdown begin!
Try: I mentioned in a previous post that I have never had a facial — I know it may be hard to believe, so I’ll let that sink in for a bit. As a birthday present to my skin, I want to try Aveda’s Outer Peace Acne Facial. I’ve been talking about it with my esthetician for a while, and this facial is supposed to be well suited for those with acne and to reduce redness. Wish me (and my skin) luck! There may be some additional pampering while I’m at Aveda — manicure, I’m coming for you.
See: I cannot confirm or deny my interest in seeing the new Bond film that is coming out this Friday. I grew up watching James Bond movies, and a good spy film gets me to the big screen. Can I get a martini shaken, not stirred with that?
Do: I’m taking full advantage of Long Island Restaurant Week. In case you missed the announcement, fall Restaurant Week is happening now…and runs until Sunday, November 8th. You know all of those pricey restaurants you’ve been wanting to try? This is the time to do it. Participating restaurants are offering a prix-fixe three-course meal for $27.95 per person…and I have the restaurants I want to visit already selected. Aside from my birthday, this may be my most favorite week in November! Be sure to follow me on Instagram for some sweet snaps.
Go: I’m looking forward to another day trip to New York City at months end. Perhaps I’ll even be able to see the start of some holiday windows?
What’s on your agenda this month?
