It is probably everyone’s secret wish to win the lottery, we probably have caught ourselves daydreaming at work about what we would do if we would win the lottery. Some people perhaps even made a list or a mood board with the things that they would do and buy.
It might sound like a fantasy but there are people who have won the lottery or a game of blackjack before at casinos, so there is a possibility that you could be the next winner. Here are some examples of what you could spend your money on if money was not an issue and you had plenty of it.
First things first, a house is essential as that is where you would live, but why not splurge a little and make it the house of your dreams. Why not get a mansion instead, or a loft with an extra walk-in closet or a movie room or perhaps a bowling alley built in your house? Or build a house from scratch just the way you want it, maybe a celebrity or a house from a movie inspired you and now you get to have one just like that. The sky’s the limit, build that pool you have always dreamed of and have a garage where 6 cars could fit in. You could also try to flip your house as some celebrities have done, buy a house and try to upgrade it so you can sell it for a better value. It is not like you win the lottery every day so the possibilities are endless.
Why not treat your whole family to a vacation of your dreams, everyone flies first class, discovering the city that you’re in or perhaps staying in all the time and ordering room service and just pampering yourself. Experiences and memories last a lifetime so you should go all out. These are our top three luxurious locations to consider when it comes to relaxation and luxury.
We probably have looked up the Maldives at least once on Google, the blue sky, crystal clear water, great weather and loads of luxury. We all know that one picture, where there are suites above the weather and you can immediately go out to swim from the comfort of your suite. With cocktails, a private chef, snorkelling, and just pure relaxation, Maldives is a great place if you just want to relax and are not bothered with going out of the hotel and discovering the place. It is not a cheap destination, but you just won the lottery so who cares!
The hotel is the island itself, the hotel is floating in the middle of Lake Pichola. Once you arrive you will be treated like royalty, there is round-the-clock butler service and each room is decorated with the finest silk. You can enjoy some spa treatments on the unique spa boat and you can also enjoy the most amazing high tea when being at the hotel. There is an on-tap water taxi chauffeur available if you would like to leave the hotel. This is definitely a place to keep in mind.
Burj Al Arab
The Burj Al Arab is probably one of the most famous luxury hotels in the world, it is one of the tallest buildings in the world and it is shaped like a sail. It is so exclusive that you can’t even cross the bridge to the hotel without being a guest of the hotel or having a reservation at one of the restaurants. Why stay there? Well because you get to have gold leaf decorated coffee, personal butler service and amazing restaurants with the best view you can imagine.
Besides going on holiday vacations and buying a new house, a new vehicle is a nice way to spend your money. You can finally afford to buy the ride of your dreams, maybe a Porsche, or perhaps a Tesla? There are plenty of nice car brands out there so make sure you do your research as to which car would suit you and also how much it costs to maintain a car like that. Buying a car also depends on where you live, because buying a sports car wouldn’t necessarily be a good move if you live in a very crowded capital city. But then again you can buy a garage space where you could leave the car somewhere in the city if you really wanted to have a fancy car.
Besides having a house already, why not invest in a vacation house? Perhaps a house in Portugal or the South of France, you could go up there every year and spend the whole summer there with your family. It doesn’t even have to be a big house, a tiny apartment in your favorite city where you can always go if you need a break. It could also be an investment because you can always sell the house if necessary and have some extra income.
Some people have dreamed of owning a boat and why not buy one now that you are financially secure; buy that speed boat or perhaps a bigger boat, however, make sure that you have the proper storage for a boat because, unless you live near the water with a dock in it, it can get quite pricey. Boats also tend to lose their value quite quickly so you need to be okay with not being able to return the money back. It really depends on what kind of boat you want to get and how much money you actually won so proper research is needed.
Why not treat yourself and your family to some designer clothes that you always wanted? Fly yourself out to New York, Paris, Milan, or London – or visit all the cities. This way you can make a trip out of it and it will be a fun and memorable way to spend your time you need to fill up that walk-in closet with some clothes, right? Buy some watches and jewelry, which is also a good investment to have for later.
