Why 50 is the new 21: Join the celebration revolution!
What do you remember most about your 21st birthday? Not much? Same here, it’s more like a booze-fuelled blur and a seriously sore head than unforgettable memories you’ll treasure for a lifetime.
Instead of wishing we could turn back the clock and re-live our milestone birthdays again, women are starting their own celebration revolution and planning some spectacular escapes to mark one of the most important birthdays of all – the 50th!
And why? Because we deserve it!
A few stale sarnies and a community centre bash is no longer classed as the celebration women require. Women are tending to follow celebrities with their lavish party celebrations. We are not all about to go totally Kate Moss and host a David Bowie style extravaganza but getting older doesn’t mean we’re going to pass up the chance to pop a few champagne corks!
We have Grown-up – but we certainly haven’t grown old!
We’ve forged those careers, we’ve been on the school run – now is OUR time and we won’t settle for anything less than total bliss.
And why should we? Time is precious and why shouldn’t we all enjoy a little luxury with our favourite girls, away from the stresses of daily life.
Here’s a few ideas on how you can celebrate your 50th birthday with a bang:
More Bellini, less bag of chips! – think the copy needs to relate more
Europe has some sensational locations for 50th birthday celebrations with the girls. From clifftop bars with an almost never-ending view of the ocean to private dining experiences in the vineyards, getting together for some gastronomic delights is still very much part of any special occasion.
But this time, its not all about grabbing a bite to soak up some booze before jumping in a cab home, it’s all about experiencing some memorable moments with your girls that you’ll treasure for a lifetime.

Trying something new
You’re never too old to experience something for the first time, so why not try your hand at something a bit more exhilarating than bingo!
From paddle boarding in a stunning natural lagoon, to some total wellness and yoga lessons for all abilities, there are some fabulous new experiences awaiting your group that everyone will enjoy.
Pamper like a princess
Why should celebrity divas have all the fun? There are so many luxurious destinations that offer the perfect balance between prosecco and world-class pampering that you’ll be completely spoilt for choice.
From Turkish baths to a personalised pampering ritual, its easy to see why ladies are marking their special birthdays with some luxury spa treatments before hitting the town to sample many of the delights our destinations have to offer.
