AD | It’s been a long ol’ time since I did a more casual post like this. Although I love sharing blogging tips, talking about Yoga and advice on self employment, it’s nice to throw all that out and write something fun for a change! And who doesn’t want to win the lottery?
Not that I actively play the lottery and not that my parent’s piddly Lotto draws will make us millionaires. But it’s nice to dream every now and again about what could be. And I’m sure we’ve all dreamed about what we’d do if we won the lottery.
So today I’m going to cry about all the things I can’t afford and what I’d spend my money on if I won the lottery (and I mean like, millions, not a tenner):
Give to charity
Aw, look at me starting all humble and compassionate. I think I’d hate myself forever if I won millions on the lottery and didn’t give anything to charity. If I was in a position to give to someone that needs it, I definitely would (my boyfriend, not so much).
So I think I’d give a bit to an animal charity of some sort as I love animals. A cancer charity because we’re all affected by cancer in some way. And maybe the British Heart Foundation as my Dad had a heart attack last year and bypass surgery this year. He was very lucky but I know there’s so many families who aren’t.
Buy a property abroad
I’ve always loved the idea of having a holiday home. But I think if I won the lottery, I’d really splash out on a lovely property abroad. I’m not a very materialistic person and I don’t tend to “splash out” on physical things like, ever. But a holiday home would provide so many lovely memories along with it.
There’s so many destinations I’d be happy to have a holiday home in. And the properties themselves are out of this world gorgeous! The Callum Swan Realty website definitely has me dreaming big on the type of property I’d buy if I won the lottery!
Book a VIP Formula 1 experience
I love Formula 1 and Motorsport, although I don’t talk about it much (if at all?) on this blog. But it’s one of my biggest passions. I’ve not been to a Formula 1 Grand Prix yet. Partially because the thought of all those crowds makes my anxiety skyrocket. And partially because well, they’re hella expensive.
Which, in the Formula 1 world, is definitely something that needs addressing. But if I won the lottery, I’d definitely buy my boyfriend and I VIP tickets to a Formula 1 event. No expenses spared. Best seats in the house. Access all areas. The nicest and closest hotel. You get the point!
Buy my family the things they need
Although this is point number 4 on the list, it’s probably the first thing I’d do if I won the lottery. Sort everyone else out first and then think about what I want. I think that’s kinda in my nature anyway. Despite having never won the lottery (or any amount of money) before.
So I’d pay off any debt my parents might be in. I’d buy them a new car and a new house (if they wanted one). And if not, I’d buy whatever new items they need for the current house. And I’d also buy my boyfriend the car of his dreams. He loves cars so I know he’d be over the moon.
Go to Disneyland Paris
Let’s end on the most basic thing ever shall we? Basic or not, I love Disneyland Paris. Although I’ve been multiple times before, I’d definitely use some of my lottery winnings to book a holiday to Disneyland Paris and similarly to the Formula 1 point, I’d go bigger than ever before.
So that definitely means staying in the Disneyland Hotel and booking dinner in all the best restaurants and just having a holiday where money is no object. Like I said, I’m not a materialistic person. But I’d love to go on holiday somewhere I love and know that I can have all the experiences I want because I don’t have to worry about money.
Now it’s your turn! What would you buy or spend your money on if you won the lottery? Nothing is off limits! Let me know in the comments!
