It’s estimated that at least 93.5 per cent of the population spend approximately one quarter of their days fantasising about what living a better lifestyle would really be like.*
This kind of thinking generally peaks on Monday mornings during the commute to work. I mean, imagine spending your days sunning yourself in Ibiza or hitting the slopes at Aspen instead of schlepping to work? Heaven.
Ok – so that might be a tad unrealistic. But that doesn’t mean that a super stylish life can’t be yours.
There are plenty of surprisingly simple tweaks to seriously enhance your lifestyle, without the need for a Kardashian-level salary.
1. Invest in good quality linen.
You know that el cheapo doona cover and sheet set you’ve had for the last five years? It doesn’t exactly scream ‘perfect lifestyle’ now, does it? More like hostel or dorm room than sophisticated adult.
But doing things differently with a brand new set of high thread count linen not only ups the style stakes in your bedroom, but also helps make you feel like you’ve got it together.
2. Pimp your space.
If your décor hasn’t had an update since One Direction first hit the airways, it may be time for a refresh. We humans are visual creatures and creating a stylish sanctuary can really enhance your life.
The best part? Mixing your high street and high end is what all the cool kids are doing. Invest a bit of coin in something beautiful, a Diptyque scented candle or limited edition lamp, and balance it out with your other bits and pieces.
3. Re-think your transport.
Spinning the wheels of a car that not only looks great but gives you the freedom to do exactly what you want to do is a hallmark trait of a great lifestyle.
The seven-seat Isuzu MU-X combines gorgeous good looks (think a streamlined exterior and super sleek interior complete with Bluetooth connectivity, sat nav and reversing camera) with plenty of power for towing your speedboat or taking things off road.
You’ve even got 14 individual cup holders, a pimped out stereo system and a DVD player to keep the whole posse happy. Nice.
