"Pamper Me" Birthday


A few years ago I created a new tradition I call #PamperMeBirthday. It’s all about taking time for yourself on your birthday – no work, no calls, no kids – and treating yourself to a special ME day. Well, since expanding my family and welcoming baby Elle into the world, there’s been a common thread in my life: trying to juggle it all (or, on most days, just some of it). With my birthday coming up this Friday there just isn’t much time for any of the balls to drop, let alone to visit my favorite spots around the city for birthday pampering. I know all of you new mommas reading this understand, right?

As I’m somewhat confined to around-the-clock feedings and diaper changes at the moment, I decided to switch it up and simplify things by having birthday indulgences brought to me. We’ve rounded up picks for glamour, beauty, drinks and more to come straight to my door! Check out all of our at-home services and products in this issue and be sure to follow me on Instagram (@cecinewyork) so you can see all the surprises each company sent for my birthday. I can’t wait to experience what’s in store!
