Insert the new blogs and lifestyle websites showing off what these wealthy spend their money on. Blogs have been popping up all over the internet displaying top luxury items from brands like Bugatti, Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, Armani, Ralph Lauren, among others.
Blogs aren't the only ones capitalizing on this increasing fascination with the super wealthy. CNBC, Wall Street Journal, and Bloomberg all have sections of their publications dedicated to the "wealth report". CNBC has a nighttime TV show entitled "Secret Lives of the Super Rich".
These productions are being viewed in mass. Turns out that people are extremely interested in either pretending to be rich on their social media accounts, or looking at items they cannot afford. For some, perhaps looking at items they cannot afford is a way of forcing themselves into a more motivated state.
Tumblr is a popular area where these types of blogs exist, as the website is primarily picture based blogs. Users can "like" or "reblog" posts seen on tumblr, and it has become a popular style to add luxury items to your tumblr blog.
Often the pictures floating around the internet on these luxury blogs contain models wearing designer clothes, people standing in front of their luxury vehicles, or photographs of beautiful pools outside of serious mansions.
One of the most famous luxury pages is known as "The Rich Kids of Instagram". This blog was one of the earliest luxury blogs on the web, and really blew up in popularity. The blog features Instagram pics posted primarily by the son and daughters of the super wealthy.
Instagram has become a breeding ground for show-off style pics where people flaunt their wealth. Blogs take these pics and show them off, and show people how others are actually living. The majority of the pictures showcase clothes, cars, and homes, but other luxury items such as iPhones before they are released are sometimes featured. When Apple released the new champagne gold iPhone 5S, blogged "itsLavish" featured his before anyone else had gotten to the front of the line. Another popular tumblr blog for featuring luxury content is "DiscoverLavish".
If you are interested in checking out the lifestyles of the rich and famous, you can always google "luxury blogs" or "lavish blogs", and you'll get no shortage of on lie content. Maybe one day(or maybe you are already), you'll be featured on one of these blogs.
