If I Could Live Like a Celebrity

I love watching reality shows. Some of my favourites are The Only Way is Essex (TOWIE), The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and The Rachel Zoe Project. I was also a huge fan of Keeping Up with the Kardashians and all their other spin-off shows, but I have recently gone off those.




Reality TV or Trashy TV as some of us like to call it is so relatable, and I guess that is the reason why they are loved by millions. You get to see these celebs living their lives, in their homes doing regularly stuff and it becomes addictive. I don’t watch reality tv shows as much as I used to some years (hardly watch TV these days) but I still play catch up on a few and watch more movies instead.

I am a huge fan of James Bond films, I have seen many of them including the latest Spectre. I like the flashy lifestyle of James Bond in the movies. From his expensive suit and shoes, to his cars, sunglasses and watches. The James Bond character is definitely living the life!

I recently came across this Licence to Chill infographic on www.chillmoney.ie  and I found it very insightful. It shows off the very lavish lifestyle of James Bond, Martin McFly and Jay Gatsby. I found the figures alarmingly. Who knew a one bedroom flat in Chelsea London would cost £700,000? Or the Omega Seamaster 300 watch would cost £4600? But then again, I am not too surprised, this is exactly how a A list celebrity lifestyle looks like.

I wouldn’t mind living a James Bond lifestyle for a bit, exclusing the fights and violence. I will be in it for the lavish bit only.

What are your thouughts? Are you alarmed by the costs of stuff on this infographic? Which of the 3 characters on the infographic is your favourite?

  1. Deciding between the lavish lifestyle or the ability to go anywhere in time…tough choice! I suppose you could do both if you chose the gold-plated version of the Back to the Future car!

  2. Imagine living the James Bond lifestyle! How incredible would that be! A life of pure luxury where money isn’t an issue. I’d definitely take his place

  3. I’ve often wondered what it must be like to live that sort of lifestyle. At what point do you think you stop questioning value for money and just buy something because you can? I’ve got a dream of taking my dad to buy a Rolex if I’m ever in the position to do so.

  4. The Great Gatsby is one of my favourite novels so I found that section really interesting – especially the price of his house!!
