Many people dream about a luxury lifestyle, but what does that look like? And, how do you get there? Sure, there are many people living a luxury lifestyle sure to their parent’s hard work, and there are those from old money.
But what is vital to recognize is that luxury is not always about what is spent and how much you earn. Luxury is just as much a feeling as it is anything else.
Here are some tips to help you get started with your journey to the life you love.
There are no shortages of stories that take you through harrowing circumstances all the way to multi-million dollar homes and 12 cars in the garage. Some are a lucky break, others are hard work – but more often it is a mix of both.
Starting small is:
- Ditching take out and learning to cook
- Swapping down from branded goods to own brand
- Saving a small amount per month
- Creating a side hustle, or starting a small business
These small changes lead up to a bigger chunk of change in the bank. That bigger bank balance can go towards bigger luxury or lifestyle items.
This can be tricky, because some people have no taste, and that’s fine! Not understanding your body type or knowing how to dress can be a long process. Ultimately one that you need to work on, though.
A person who always looks put together usually either has helped, spends a lot of time working on their wardrobe, or has a very neat capsule set of items.
If you want to instantly have more space and spend less time picking an outfit, throw out everything you don’t wear and keep only what you love.
Choose three items to build the rest of your capsule wardrobe around.
Write it Down
What is a luxury to you? Is luxury having Hermes bags, red bottoms, and working 1 hour a day? Is luxury your own business with an office and a high level of success? What is your luxury lifestyle?
Luxury can be things; it can be moments, it can be a feeling. There is no right or wrong, as it is different for everyone.
As you write your list, you can begin to put things in order; try from easiest to achieve to hardest to achieve. Or perhaps short-term and long term.
This can give you a defined list that can help you achieve the lifestyle upgrade that you need.
While skincare with expensive ingredients and luxurious packaging might be on your list, one of the most important things you can actually do is make sure that you are drinking enough water to be properly hydrated.
Once you are hydrated correctly, you will get a noticeable benefit physically. And those creams that you will one day have in your regime will work even better.
Curating a life that you love doesn’t need to happen all at once; it can be a slow and steady process – and in the end, you’ll have the luxe that you want.
