Lately, we see photos in Instagram and personal blogs where the “lifestyle” is highlighted, whether it´s travel, restaurants visits, training, shopping and other things… and we ask: Is it true that there is such a lifestyle? Does the economic factor influence? Could I live this way? In this post, I intend to speak my perception of this and I will try to clarify my concept.
My definition of the concept of lifestyle is to Make the most of your day and plan your tastes to be able to please them … What do I mean with this? That everything in life can be done with a dose of reality and good planning. You have to agree with me about social networks sell many fantasies, but at the same time, it makes you feel the need to give you those tastes that the world offers and that would be excellent to include them in our way of life.
Here I detail you 4 points that I consider can help you to enjoy some of these fantasies but with your feet on the ground and especially within your budget:
- Quality moments with family or friends. These do not necessarily have to be in an expensive restaurant or a bar, I invite you to test your culinary creativity and make the big event ever in your sweet home. I usually do it all the time, and one of my tricks is to see local and international cook or tapas books, (blogs also help) and between a good menu and delicious cocktails we had a wonderful afternoon; but if you’re not cooking I recommend the next point.
- There are coupon platforms where you can find an offer of your favorite restaurant or some new restaurants that are contemplated to make them known and make tempting offers which you can take advantage of and give yourself a foodie moment.
- If you want to make an internal trip, my recommendation is to look for agencies that offer tours in your country usually have a good price and you can take advantage… But if the plan is to make a trip abroad you have to plan it, investigate what is the best season of the year to go, look for hotel options within your budget, free tours, etc. But the key is to take your time to plan it and do the homework.
- The trends are constantly changing in the world of fashion, but there are always those clothes that will be in constant use as jeans or a bag which we always try to be good quality and long lasting, but there are also clothes that hook us and we want to buy it instantly, either so doesn’t run out, or we´re going out to an important event or simply because we fell in love at first sight; I recommend that always within your monthly budget include the purchase of at least two outfits and that obviously be pending the sales at the end of each season.
Anyway, the good base to enjoy your own lifestyle is to have your goals clear and a good planning to achieve it … I tell you that I usually say that “I´m poor but with expensive tastes” ha ha ha.
My Frenes, I hope this is a reference and helps you to plan your tastes and enjoy your own lifestyle… Millions of hugs!
