I'd be lying if I told you I didn't say the words 'I need to win the lottery' at least a couple of times a week. There is nothing worse than feeling stressed about money, and whilst some say that money can't buy happiness, not having enough money to feel secure can definitely be a big source of unhappiness, in my opinion.
I often fantasize about what I'd spend my money on if I did win big - and by big I mean the jackpots you see on Euromillions, an insane amount - I mean, we all do it, right? And I thought it might make a fun blog post to share with you guys what I would actually buy if I hit the jackpot - I'd be keen to know if any of these match up to what you'd spend your winnings on!
I definitely think buying a house would be at the top of my list if I won the lottery. Whilst I absolutely love where I live now, I am so excited about the idea of having my own place, to do with whatever I like. I'd love nothing more than a big fancy kitchen with marble worktops and an island, a beautiful en-suite bathroom (again, marble) and a walk-in wardrobe. Ah, one day maybe!
Of course, I think as soon as I won the lottery the first thing I'd do would be to book a holiday somewhere to celebrate. There are literally so many places I want to discover, so if I had the money to see them all I most definitely would. I think the perfect celebratory trip would have to be Disneyworld Florida - I've never been as it's just so expensive, and being the huge Disney fan that I am this would be the dream trip. After that, who knows - I'd love to go on safari, visit the Caribbean, take a road-trip across America... the possibilities are endless!
Over the past couple of years I've really fallen out of love with my clothes - most days are 'I have nothing to wear!' days and I'd love for this to change. I can't think of anything better than going on a huge shopping spree and treating myself to a whole new wardrobe (to go nicely in my walk-in wardrobe, of course) - and not having to check the price tags on everything would be amazing.
Live a Little
Finally, I think if I won the lottery the main thing I'd spend my money on is living a little. By that, I mean being able to live without boundaries, without having to worry about money and allowing myself to be spontaneous. I could book a last-minute trip to Rome if I wanted, go and stop in London when I'm down there for events and see a show, even little things like buying the eye shadow palette I really want as soon as it comes out, without having to save up. It probably sounds strange to some, but just to be able to buy things, go places, see things without thinking "Can we afford it?" would honestly be incredible.
What would you spend your winnings on if you won the lottery? Let me know!
