If there are teenagers in your family, you’ve probably heard the youth culture slogan ‘live your best life’, which is believed to have been coined by billionaire philanthropist Oprah Winfrey and her team. The sentiment behind the phrase doesn’t just apply to young people, though. We all want to get the most out of life and experience luxury.
With a fresh new year underway, what better time is there than now to consider how you can upgrade your lifestyle? Read on for plenty of inspiring ideas.
1. Increase Your Home Comforts
When you want to enhance your life, it makes perfect sense to ensure that your living space is as comfortable and appealing as possible.
To achieve this aim, try making stylish swaps. Exchange cotton pillowcases for silk ones (they’re kinder to skin and hair) and add a luxury mattress topper to your bed for better-quality sleep. Covering your sofa in soft throws will make winter evenings cosier. Why not buy a French press coffee maker and say goodbye to jars of instant? Instead of having quick showers, make indulgent bubble baths a self-care ritual.
2. Outsource Domestic Chores
Few people relish the thought of tackling a pile of washing, mopping floors or weeding. Why not save yourself considerable time and effort by securing professional help? You could ask for assistance with the cleaning, laundry, ironing or gardening.
Instead of being hampered by domestic chores, you’ll be free to do more of the things you find satisfying, from developing your career to planning your next luxury experience.
3. Dress to Impress
The way you present yourself says a lot about your lifestyle and aspirations. Upgrading your wardrobe is beneficial when you want your clothing to say all the right things.
That doesn’t have to mean spending thousands of pounds on Bond Street. Look smart and stylish without breaking the bank by being selective. Focus on what Vogue calls ‘investment pieces’, i.e. good-quality, classic items that provide the ideal foundation for any outfit and last for years. Examples include a timeless trench coat or tailored blazer.
Dress to impress and you can give people the impression you’ve just stepped out of an exclusive private members’ club, even if you’re just running errands!
4. Make the Most of Your ‘Hire Power’
The demand for luxury products is growing, and numerous companies are making them more accessible by giving consumers the opportunity to hire them. That’s right – if you don’t have a fortune to spend on gold watches, diamond necklaces or skippered luxury yachts, simply rent them for a fraction of the price.
By making the most of your ‘hire power’, you can upgrade your lifestyle and indulge your taste for sophisticated treats without spending beyond your means. Plus, nobody needs to know you don’t actually own the luxuries in question. Your secret’s safe with us!
5. Holiday with the Smart Set
It’s easier than you might expect to holiday alongside the smart set. While the cost of jetting off to St Tropez or the Maldives may prove too much for most people’s credit cards, you can enjoy high-class holidays closer to home.
An English destination that certainly fits the bill is Dartmouth in South Devon, where discerning holidaymakers go to unwind. This glorious harbour town boasts first-class cuisine and luxury shopping, as well as stunning galleries and luxury accommodation. No wonder members of the social elite, including the owners of superyachts, visit often.
6. Enhance Your Status with Elite Titles
‘Luxury has nothing to do with net worth, but everything to do with self-worth.’ Those are wise words indeed from Dukes Avenue, a luxury lifestyles magazine.
At Elite Titles, we passionately believe everyone should have the chance to make life more luxurious, enjoyable and fulfilling. That’s why we enable clients worldwide to legally upgrade their titles. Take our Seated Titles package, for example: it includes the aristocratic-style title of your choice for you and (if applicable) your partner, plus a small land parcel in Dartmouth (your ‘seat’) for you to name as you wish.
Imagine being able to style yourself as a Lord or Lady, say, and display your effective title on official documents. What a wonderful way to enhance your perceived status, enjoy yourself and, of course, boost your self-worth! Many clients tell us their aristocratic-style titles have led to perks such as hotel upgrades and superior service.
Adopting a decorative title for show purposes is great fun and potentially life-enhancing. Order your aristocratic-style seated title today and see where it takes you!
