Oprah Winfrey is living her best life, and her birthday excursion perfectly proves our point! 

In celebration of her 65th birthday, the billionaire media mogul jet set to St. Barts on Monday (Jan. 28) for three days of sunny relaxation with her best friend, Gayle King, Gayle’s son, and another young man.

Spending two days docked in Gustavia on her close friend and travel partner, David Geffen's $300M mega-yacht, Oprah let her hair down while enjoying a birthday cake she didn’t want. 

“Happy birthday DEAR @Oprah who did NOT want a bd [birthday] cake so I requested the kind I like,” Gayle shared poking fun on her Instagram post. “It was delish perfect for the birthday girl!”

Besides birthday songs and cake, according to DailyMail, the group decided to watch the extremely controversial HBO documentary ‘Leaving Neverland', which details how Michael Jackson allegedly raped two young boys over a span of years.

“Just watched ALL FOUR hours of Leaving Neverland.. powerful, compelling & a game changer for those who have been afraid to speak up of child sex abuse,” Gayle shared before adding, “My heart goes out to Wade Robson & James Safechuck. Thank YOU for sharing your pain it will make a difference. Bravo to producer Dan Reed... I’m still reeling.”

After the festivities, the 6th largest mega-yacht in the world dubbed the “Rising Sun," headed to St. Marteen on Wednesday morning. The group later jetted off of the island.

We guess when you’re hardworking like Oprah, nothing is better than a few days of relaxation. This is what we call birthday goals!
