I'm thinking of maybe a Louis Vuitton handbag in one of the classic designs but I'm not entirely convinced. What would you buy?

Botox and teeth whitening.

Are we only allowed to buy one thing? As I think if I had the money I'd buy about ten different items. Including a really nice coat and boots smile

If I could only buy one thing though I'd probably get some really nice jewellery, diamonds of some sort.

A mulberry bag or a Tag watch smile

Fairfax & Favor Reginas in tan. Schoffel Lyndon in navy. A new waxed Barbour. New Ariat boots.

A painting

More personal training sessions and a laser facial.

LittleOyster Thu 05-Jan-17 13:23:32

I'd get the broken veins on my leg dealt with.

ItsNiceItsDifferentItsUnusual Thu 05-Jan-17 13:23:54

Teeth whitening and a piece of jewellery I've been lusting after for years.

I'd have my hair, nails, feet, beauty etc all done. And I'd book a repeat appointment for each and go to those appointments. I've neglected me for too long!

A pair of Jimmy Choos

JudithTaverner Thu 05-Jan-17 13:31:17

some cycling clothes from Rapha probably at the moment. or a weekend break in Iceland.

But other than that... I'd like some flat Jimmy Choos and some black ankle boots (Acne Jensen maybe).

WispyWindy Thu 05-Jan-17 13:35:36

Several good hair and nails appointments!

TooExtraImmatureCheddar Thu 05-Jan-17 15:39:30

I would book a personal shopper appointment at John Lewis/Topshop and try on zillions of things and come away with heaps of lovely new stuff. But I would lose some weight first. I would put it in a special account and not touch it until I'd lost 21lbs.

JaxingJump Thu 05-Jan-17 15:41:12

I'd spend it on a holiday, or to do a better holiday than planned.

PollyPerky Thu 05-Jan-17 15:45:18

Some fillers for my face- that would eat up most of it.

And if anything was left, maybe a bag just a bit more expensive than I feel like buying!

bigkidsdidit Thu 05-Jan-17 15:48:31

A tan handbag and boots.

Softkitty2 Thu 05-Jan-17 16:30:26

A louis vuitton neverfull in ebene rather than monogram.

Or a stuart weitzman highland boots in stretched leather

Christian louboutins boots in otaboo or communa 😍😍😍

LadyOfTheCanyon Thu 05-Jan-17 16:49:33

Oooo Botox. And a series of Espa facials. And then ALL THE SCENTED CANDLES.

RitaCrudgington Thu 05-Jan-17 16:53:10

A new Jigsaw suit and some LK Bennett shoes. And just maybe Botox and fillers for my forehead 11s which are terrible. I saw a woman on TV described as looking as if she'd been hit in the forehead with a hatchet and I'm not far off that.

PurpleNurple69 Thu 05-Jan-17 17:36:27

I'd get work done on my face. Fillers, Botox, nose job. Obviously not all three even though it's all needed! I don't even know if you could get a nose job for 1k?

Softkitty2 Thu 05-Jan-17 19:07:49

Oh and the chanel 2 tone sling backs and the chanel exclusifs perfume.. If any money left, a luxurious candle

doubleristretto Thu 05-Jan-17 21:20:22

While I love the Botox/fillers/treatments option I don't think I'd spend that sort of money on it as a one-off unless I had photos a big event coming up, wouldn't it all wear off after a few months?
