The Lottery Tag

Natalie created this! Here is her explanation of it that I took from her original post:

A quick synopsis of The Lottery 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. Or don’t. No need to mention me for creating it; you can if you want, but I wouldn’t mind if you didn’t.

Of course I will credit the lovely creator. Natalie is an amazing blogger and writer, aspiring vlogger, and has also recently gone self-hosted which is always an incredible achievement!! Go say hi 😀

So Natalie split her answer into three sections, Small Stuff, Big Stuff and Really Big Stuff. So guys, get ready for a huge wishlist 😀

Small Stuff

Flying Whales Pattern Notepad:

Every single notebook in existence. I love stationary. I found these ones through Pinterest.

I got kind of bored and arranged (some of) my inhumanely large collection of pens.. Note: I’ve had all of the unboxed Staedtler fineliners since 2010 and they’re still going strong ^.^ Shown here are: Staedtler triplus fineliners Staedtler triplus felt tips Staedtler ball-point pens Stabilo pen 68 Stabilo point 88 Stabilo boss highlighters Stabilo neon highlighters Stabilo greenpoint pens Smiggle mini-highlighters Smiggle ball-point pens Paperchase ball-point pens:

All the pens and stationary things in general

As a close watcher of trends in the design world, I will say that there's a lot out there that is very beautiful, but few things that feel really new. There are always exceptions, though, like these iridescent homewares (and accessories). They feel different and futuristic and maybe even a little bit magical, the perfect thing for taking your home, and your style, to the next level.:

Household items that I don’t need or want, other than they look really cool.

Big Stuff

This really trendy looking washer and dryer

A pretty coffee machine that I would have no idea how to use

I would finally get a really nice camera. A really fancy top-of-the-line camera that again I wouldn’t know how to use.

Basically all the expensive household or hobby items.

Really Big Stuff

Image result for travel

I would travel everywhere I’ve ever wanted to go, with Rory of course. And we would go first class and stay in fancy hotels and castles maybe!!

A gorgeous slide built into this massive pool! This looks like a great back yard to have a part!:

Buy that dream house!! Of course if by now I may not have enough money for the dream house because of everything else I’ve spent the lottery money on…

The idea of a couch like area in the kitchen has appealed to me for so many years. A kitchen is such a wonderful collective point in a house so why not make it comfy while your friends are around or whilst your cookies are burning?:  Reading in this nook. I will have one of these in my future house. | 31 Places Bookworms Would Rather Be Right Now: \

If that was the case, then we would buy a house we liked, then redecorate it to dream status!! 😀

So this was so much fun! It led me down another pinterest hole which I love to do!


To continue the fun, I want to nominate some friends to join in Natalie’s tag! As always, feel free to do it or not 🙂


Hello internet! My name is Angela. I write daily about my travels, life, thoughts, and ramblings. I live down in New Zealand with my lovely husband, Rory. Thanks for stopping by!
  1. Very fascinating. I honestly do not know what I would do if I won the lottery

    1. Neither do I if I really won it. Its just fun to dream 🙂

      1. I never have actually attempted to win the lottery

  2. Let’s hope you get to do most of these without winning the lottery! Seems achievable xx

    1. They do seen achievable! I just cant do them all at the same time which is what I wish though 😂

      1. Now that would require a different kinda power altogether! 😛

  3. I knew travel would be on yours!!! 😀 You’d better swing by Chicago to meet me if you win the lottery. 😉

    1. Of course! Theres so much I have to see! I would love to swing by Chicago one day, maybe we could even see Hamilton together 😃

      1. Ahhhhh!!! Yes we definitely could!!! 😀

  4. Love Love Love notebooks and stationary items.! Just so much fun. I know its the era of digitization and people mostly use apps for making notes. But I love jotting down ideas in my notebook.And whenever I have a good notebook, I think I feel happy and thus become more creative with my thoughts and ideas. Lovely post Angela.! <3

    1. Thank you!! I totally agree! I love stationary and notebooks too! I do keep some notes in my phone, but it’s so much more satisfying to write them down in a little notebook 🙂

  5. Haha this is a really great post!! I actually don’t know what I’d buy and do if I won the lottery!! 😁 xx

    1. Thanks Amelia! I wasn’t sure either, so I just impulsively thought about what I would buy and had fun 😀
