Do you ever think about what you’d do if you won the lottery? If the world was your playground, money was no object? I can’t be the only one that finds themselves daydreaming about a non-existent budget and adventures where money is no issue.
So here’s a few things I’d do if I won the lottery tomorrow…. And who knows, if the rule of attraction really exists, maybe writing this blog post might be a nudge towards to winning it 😉
I’d buy an apartment in NYC
My husband and I visit New York a lot, and we adore the city. It’s where we got engaged, and we have so many happy memories there – so it’d be amazing to set up a proper place to call home during parts of the year. I don’t think we’d live there all year round, but a nice apartment to visit whenever the urge kicks in, would be pretty sweet. It’d also be great to have somewhere friends and family could stop with us, so they can start to love the city as much as we do.
I’d fly somewhere First Class
It wouldn’t matter where…! But I’d book a flight with a luxury airline and buy the most expensive, fancy tickets they had. I’ve never actually flown business or first – so this is just a bucket list item to tick off my own list and see (finally) how the other half lives.
I’d go to Las Vegas to celebrate
There’s nowhere better than Vegas for celebrating, and Pad and I have always said if either of us won the lottery – the first place we’d go is Las Vegas. We’d book seats for us and all our friends on the next plane out there and book the most expensive hotel suite we could find. So obviously that has to make the list!
I’d invest some of it
This is a very ‘Ross from friends’ reaction – but I stick by it. The sensible thing to do would be to save / invest some of it. So despite the clothes shopping, shoe shopping, travelling, etc – I’d also put my smart hat on and keep some of it safe.
I’d donate to charity
There are a lot of really great charities out there that I would want to help. Breast Cancer would be one of the big ones, but I’d also like to help out with local charities too – where a donation of that size can make a really big day-to-day difference.
And finally… I’d buy my husband an Aston Martin
Because he’s always wanted one.
