Let’s face it, most of us would want to live like a celebrity if we could – minus the constant threat of paparazzi, of course. Well, you’ll be pleased to know that you can live like a celebrity. And it doesn’t have to break the bank either! Without further ado, here are 5 simple things you can do to live like a celebrity.
- It’s all about the shops
So, you want the latest fashion trends and to own the biggest brands, but you don’t want to have to spend half your paycheck on them… Don’t worry – you’re not alone! It’s easier than you might think to get your hands on a bargain.
Huge outlets like Bicester Village are ripe with good deals. From handbags to clothing, you’ll find it all. There’s a range of brands to choose from – Burberry, Dior, Dolce & Gabanna, Vivienne Westwood, Jimmy Choo, and so much more.
And if that’s a bit out of your way, why not try TK Maxx? Okay, so you might have to hunt a little more to find the brands you’re looking for, but when you do find them, you can almost guarantee you’ll love the price.
Don’t fancy going to the shops? No problem. You can always try eBay, Amazon, or even Depop. Just check the reviews because the last thing you want is to get stung by a fake.
- There’s nothing wrong with a deal…
One of the best ways, by far, for you to live the celebrity lifestyle on an affordable budget is to keep your eyes peeled for deals.
Look in any gossip magazine, and you’ll probably see a picture of a celebrity entering/leaving a restaurant. Can you blame them? We probably wouldn’t cook if we could afford to eat out daily.
But thanks to the many websites that offer daily deals, eating out doesn’t have to be that expensive.
And it doesn’t have to end there – you can get deals on all sorts of things, including holidays and spa breaks. So you can be pampered by a masseuse or walk along the golden sand in the sun for a hugely discounted price.
- Model for high-end salons
When it comes to haircuts, the prices some celebrity pay is eye-watering, to say the least. Sure, they always look immaculate, and it’s always the trendiest cut, but still… Few of us can afford to maintain that lifestyle.
However, if you live near a celebrity or high-end salon, you can sometimes get discounted (and sometimes even free) haircuts. You have to offer to be a model for their student hairdressers. Don’t worry – they will have had sufficient training, so you won’t leave the hairdressers with wonky hair (unless that’s what you’re after). Plus, they’re often supervised, too.
Just have a quick Google to see where your nearest celeb salon is and ask if they’re looking for models.
- Stay in a celebrity’s home.
If you’re fortunate enough to be in the position where you can buy a home, you can always look for which celeb’s houses are on the market. But, if that’s not an option, why not look for places to rent for short periods in the same area where many celebrities live?
If you look at places like Airbnb, you never know what you might find. And if you do find somewhere, you never know who you’ll bump into.
Going on holiday and want to brush shoulders with the stars? It’s easier than you might think. It might take a little more searching when booking hotels or apartments to stay in, but it’s not impossible. There are plenty of websites available online that focus specifically on this.
Travel in style by private jet
Did you know private jets aren’t just for the incredibly rich and/or famous? Yup – you read that correctly. When people book a private jet, the jet will rarely stay there with them. Which means there are empty seats on the way home. They’re known as ‘Empty Legs’- you can view some deals on Charter A’s website.
Just imagine it… you, on a private jet. Just think how good the pictures would look!
And if flying’s not your thing, why not think about a luxury car? More and more companies are cropping up that allow you to rent luxury cars. So you can drive around, looking like a celebrity, safe knowing that it hasn’t cost you the earth to do so.
So there you have… 5 easy ways to live like a celebrity today.
