It was a celebratory weekend for LL Cool J’s wife, Simone Smith who turned 44. The jewelry designer and cancer survivor celebrated her birthday in a healthy way. Instead of a typical bash, she held a private event with a health and wellness theme. Attendees spent the afternoon practicing yoga, meditation and exercise. She beamed on Twitter:
Today I’m not only celebrating my birthday but I’m celebrating a day of wellness! with my girlfriends
Celebs tuning into their healthier selves on their birthday seems to be a growing trend. Earlier this year, Oprah Winfrey hosted a Soul Cycle session for her 60th.
Celebrity fitness trainer Jeanette Jenkins helped lead the fitness routines. She wrote on her experience with Jeanette:
You are a true inspiration to me. Thank you for pushing me to do things in our workouts I thought I could never do. Thank you for your positive energy and our talks. Thank you for today You ROCK!!!!! Love you #MyTrainerIsBetterThanYours #mybirthdayweek #wellnessday #owwwww
