The Lottery Tag

About a week ago, Natalie published a new interesting blog tag named The Lottery Tag. Here is a quick synopsis of the tag.

Imagine you won the lottery. There is no set sum of money – it could be $100 or $100m dollars – let your imagination run with it. All up for interpretation. Tell us what you would do with that money, and then tag a couple of your blogging friends to do the same.

I love creative blog tags. They allow for a chance to stretch your imagination and they are so much fun to write. Here’s a shout-out to Natalie for coming up with such a unique tag.

Today I was more than happy to be nominated for this tag by none other than the pretty beauty blogger Siyana.

Let’s begin with the tag!

SMALL STUFF:

canon-g7x-mark-ii

If someone hands me my lottery winnings right at this very moment, I would definitely run straight to the nearest mall to purchase a Canon G7X Mark II.

I’ve been wanting to own a good camera for as long as I can remember. I was so close to buying one last year but decided to purchase a smartphone instead. While I don’t regret my Iphone, I still feel unsatisfied with the entire Iphoneography experience and still wish to take better photos with a more powerful camera.

BIGGER STUFF:

philippines

I would take my family to a trip around the country. The Philippines is well known for its beautiful beaches and exotic islands. If I have the money to spend, I wouldn’t miss the chance to tour and to go island-hopping.

prague

I would also love to go backpacking across Europe and to visit some of my most favorite cities such as Amsterdam and Prague.

I would also set aside some money to finance my graduate studies. But even without a lottery win, I am still going to make this happen, hopefully within this year or the next.

REALLY BIG STUFF:

I would contribute to the local organization which supports mental health recovery and advocacy. I would also establish some kind of a recreational community program for those battling with anxiety and depression. I know it sounds like your average support group session but I envision something more engaging and more connected to the passion of each individual. It is my wish to be able to help in any way I can those who suffer from mental illness.

Finally, somewhere in this blog I wrote about my all-time bizarre dream of reaching outer space. If I could have the means, I would buy myself the permission to travel in space and if I were lucky, maybe land on Mars or the Moon haha.

ON THE MATTER OF MONEY:

I like to end this post with a video from one the most successful vloggers to ever come out of YouTube. Michelle Phan almost hit the lottery jackpot so to speak by becoming one of the most influential beauty creators in social media. But even in the sea of fame and fortune, there was still a part of her that no amount of money or success was able to satisfy. In her latest video, she narrates her story on how money was able to buy many things like peace of mind, comfort, status—anything but happiness.

MY NOMINEES:

That is all for today’s blog post.
See you again in the next one.

Thank you for dropping by! 💕wander-summer-blog-signature

Happy first day of May everyone! Let’s begin this month with a beauty review on everyone’s all-time favorite soothing gel.

It is summer from where I live: the sun has been pretty unforgiving since the summer began and for the past two months of summer, the city has been roasting in the sweltering heat of the day.  To adapt to this scorching season, I switched some of my skincare products and went for those that would best suit the summer weather.
