Nicole Richie rules out birthday parties

Nicole Richie

Nicole Richie has vowed not to have any more birthday parties.

The TV star-turned-designer threw a lavish bash when she turned 30 in 2011. She's now decided not to splash out on parties for herself so she can concentrate on celebrating her daughter Harlow and son Sparrow's special days.

"My 30th birthday last year was my last big party - my son Sparrow has his birthday in September, so I'm handing the month to him," she explained. "We hired the Beverly Wilshire Hotel and danced all night. I wore a red '20s vintage gown that I'd chopped into a minidress."

These days, Nicole and her husband Joel Madden prefer more relaxed forms of entertaining. They often invite friends to their home to enjoy an evening of talking and good food.

"I throw loads of dinner parties - my house is the place everyone hangs out," she told the latest edition of UK magazine InStyle. "I don't want to blow my own trumpet but I do a great tilapia [fish] with tartare sauce made from scratch!"

Your home life is undergoing big changes. Youngsters may decide the time is right to fly the nest. An elderly relative may come to live with you. You might move in with a loving partner. Whatever form this new situation takes, it will be empowering. You'll get help that was previously unavailable. If your current home can't support the lifestyle changes in your household, it is time to move. Search for a quiet hideaway where you can all rest and relax after a hard day's work.More
