To Do

573. Ballroom dance at the Rainbow Room

Neverminded on July 18, 2010 Even though there have been campaigns to have the Rainbow Room granted historic landmark status, which would save it from being repurposed as office space, it hasn’t yet been granted this status, and is in danger. Either way, the Rainbow Room closed for business in 2009. The last time the […]

485. Have a personal trainer for awhile

Completed June 2010 I used to be so jealous of celebrities when they’d talk about their fabulous personal trainers who pushed them to incredible levels of fitness. I wasn’t sure I’d ever be able to afford such a luxury. Twice, I signed up for personal training sessions at the gym, but neither time did I […]

476. Eat a one-pound box of Godiva in one sitting, guilt-free

I tried, but I could only eat half of it, even though I was really hungry.

472. Get a precise and expensive haircut

Completed March 2008 I guess what you consider expensive for a haircut depends a lot on where you live and what your income level is. After years of having my hair done at Fantastic Sam’s and Hair Cuttery for $15 or so, I can now afford to visit a proper salon for a beautiful haircut […]

463. Hire a personal shopper

Updated August 17, 2009 As I spread myself thinner and thinner and take on more and more, I’m definitely starting to appreciate the beauty of outsourcing. When I first added this to my list, it was because I just thought of it as a luxury to have someone to do shopping for you. That was […]

460. Take a mineral bath at Saratoga Springs

Updated April 30, 2009 In Saratoga Springs, New York, the spring water is naturally carbonated and chalk full of naturally occuring minerals. The springs were used by Native American tribes for their healing powers, and introduced to white settlers in the 1700’s. Lincoln Mineral Baths, a spa facility where they fill a soaking tub with […]

430. Indulge in a two-hour body massage

Updated June 13, 2009 I’ve had massages. I’ve never done the 10 or 15 minutes in a chair at the mall or airport. I’m sure that feels great, but I think if you’re going to do a massage, you need to do it right. Pay for at least 60 minutes, take off your clothes in […]

386. Ride in a stretch limo

One of the original 50 list items from high school.

370. Have all of my Christmas presents wrapped

I love presenting gorgeously wrapped gifts.

356. Wear silk pajamas

Updated September 24, 2009 I suppose it doesn’t count that I splurged on a silk comforter for my bed. A lavender silk comforter. It was absolutely gorgeous and I felt sumptuous and divine sleeping wrapped up in silk every night. So, how much better would it feel if it were actually silk pajamas? Much better, […]
