What turning 26 feels like.So this Sunday, I turned 26. It feels a bit awkward. Am I an adult now? Or not? How do I seriously make it stop?
I have never been fond of birthdays. Never ever. I used to get excited about it when I was a child but as soon as I entered my teenage years, I realised that birthdays are not really my thing. They are kind of depressing. I mean I am absolutely fine a few days before my birthday. I am all happy and chirpy but on the day, I want to bawl my eyes out. And I have absolutely no idea why.
So, this year my husband kept asking me what I wanted for my birthday and I kept telling him that I really did not want anything. But then later, I thought, I could splurge on a good day of pampering. That is not materialistic, right? So after dropping Azlan to his school on Friday, off I went to a long day of pampering myself.
I got a haircut after 3 years, so that was pretty fantastic. I usually trim my hair myself every few weeks and ever since my previous hair dresser went off the radar, I don't really know who to trust. A friend of mine recommended Rush. So I booked an early appointment and had to calm my nerves because I really love my long hair. So, initially, I wanted to go for a fun long bob but I had my doubts, so I ended up getting a layered haircut and a fringe. And I could not have been more happier. The stylist did a great job and I have been recommending her to my friends ever since.
After getting my haircut, I went for a little stroll in the mall which ended up with a bank balance in minus (but husband decided to be extra generous and reinstate that amount). I got myself a few make up items and a few skin care bits.
Since Azlan goes to school for 2 sessions in a day, I decided to get myself a manicure and a pedicure. So I called the lady and told her that I will be coming in for a session. My feet were in such a bad state that I ended up staying for a proper hour.
