If Money Were No Object

I often spend my time planning what I'd buy if I were to ever win the lottery. When you're feeling a bit strapped for cash it's so easy to fantasise about which mansions, holidays & cars you'd invest in. You'd have to get exceptionally lucky to win enough to afford all of those but even just a few years free from worry about rent, bills, food, childcare & travel expenses would be heavenly. The first time I played the National Lottery at age 16 I won £100. I've only ever won the odd tenner since then! Hopefully I'll have a bit more luck playing on Lottoland UK. They have a special DoubleJackpot feature so you can win twice the amount of money! Mansions aside, I have a beauty & fashion wishlist that's as long as my arm. Here's some of the things I would buy if money were no object:

Wayne Goss Brush Collection / Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow / Oribe Supershine Moisturising Cream
Bumble & Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil / Sunday Riley Good Genes / Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream
NUDE ProGenius Treatment Oil / Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow in Pale Barley / SUQQU Frame Fix Liquid Foundation
Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask / Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts / Chantecaille Ultra Sun Protection SPF 50
Tom Ford Lip Colour Sheer in Summer Fling / By Terry Baume De Rose

Whistles Dina Overcoat / Alice + Olivia Charlotte Tweed Skirt Dress / Topshop Dogtooth Coat
The Whitepepper Button-Cuff Angel Pink Dress / T By Alexander Wang Leather Mini Skirt
Topshop Pink Leather Jacket

Christian Louboutin Palais Royal Patent / Catbird Alphabet Rings / Whistles Rivington Shiny Croc Pouch
Mulberry Del Rey / Maison Martin Margiela Gold Rings / Dahlia Leather Backpack / Tiffany Heart Tag Pendant
Chanel 2.55 Classic Flap Bag / Cartier Love Bracelet / Mulberry Bow Continental Wallet
The Whitepepper Buckle Strap Wedges

  5. i find myself planning what i would do if i won the lottery as well - i've never even got a ticket for some reason. i love all of your clothing picks xxx

    The best part is these could easily be made into multiple outfits :D

  8. I also spend a lot of my time looking at expensive items I can only dream about! Love all of these, especially the leather jacket!


  9. I've had the Charlotte Tilbury contour kit on my wishlist for so long, but I can't justify spending that much on one piece of makeup at the moment! :( Maybe one day I'll win on the lottery and treat myself haha!

    Ohhhh all the bags <3
