6 Stupid Things To Spend Way Too Much Money On
1. This Solid Quartz Bathtub
Do you smell a little funky and have an extra $1 million hanging around? If yes, you should consider purchasing this quartz bathtub. The story is actually pretty interesting, brought to you via Neatorama:
The huge tub, 2 metres in length and 55cm in height was previously shown in Milan at I Saloni in April 2010 and is carved from a single enormous block of the purest white rock crystal, quarried in the Amazon region of Brazil. The block was discovered in 2006 when Paolo Baldi, father of the company’s current CEO Luca Baldi, learned of the existence of this ten-ton block of flawless crystal and had it extracted and transported to Italy intact.This incredible bathtub is the second to be made from the immense block. The original was shown at Salone del Mobile in 2008 and immediately snapped up by a Russian magnate, but the tub featured in the Harrods window is by no means a replica of the first. Each is unique, though both were sculpted with diamond cuts and left partially rough to expose the natural beauty of the crystal
Oh… So there’s two of them? Forget it. Worthless.
2. This Solid Gold Toilet for Royal Relief
So you had $2 mil and bought a quartz bathtub, but what to do with the other million? Since we’re talkin’ bathroom swag right now, why not pick up a solid gold toilet? It’s all the rage in the rap game. Cash Money Records co-founder Birdman got one of these beauties last winter. Don’t you want insta-glam like that?!
3. Diamond Soap, Anyone?
With such a fancy bathroom, you can’t just buy a bar of Zest. Real ballers only go for gold – and diamonds. Check out this gem (literally…I;m pretty sure it could be in a museum):
The Bader Hassoun and Sons soap company has unveiled the “most expensive soap in the world,” made of pure gold dust, olive oil and virgin honey and embedded with diamonds, at the Qatar Pool and Spa 2013 at the Doha Exhibition Centre. According to Glamroz.
This soap will cost you $2800 per bar. But hey, those diamond pieces are great for exfoliation!
4. How About Your New Best Friend?
With a name like “Golden-haired Tibetan Mastiff” it HAS to be expensive. $2mil to be exact. But how could you look cooler than walking a FREAKIN’ LION down the road?! (And by walking, we mean riding. LOOK AT THAT THING.)
According to CNBC, a mastiff pup “sold at a premium pet fair in the eastern province of Zhejiang on Tuesday, fetching 12 million yuan ($1.95 million)”
Or you could just go to a shelter and get a sweet little pooch for free!
5. These Super Fresh Kicks
When Drake and Jordan Brand teamed up, Jordan offered a welcoming gift to Drake and his pals – free pairs of gold and diamond encrusted Air Jordan 10 and 12’s. Some of the guys were feeling generous and gave theirs away to superfans…who proceeded to put them on ebay immediately. If you were one of the high-balling bidders you could have gotten a par of 12’s for just $100,000, according to Sneaker Freaker.
6. This Blingy IPhone, Because Your Old One Was Lame
“IPhone 4 Diamond Rose Edition. Hughes has recreated the infamous antenna band that wraps around the sides of the latest iPhone, as well as the backplate, using rose gold. The band is adorned with 100 carats of flawless diamonds, and the Apple logo is formed with fifty-three more diamonds. Once again, the home button gets the most love–it’s made of platinum and features a rare 7.4-carat pink diamond.
The phone comes in an imperial pink 7-kilogram chest cut from a single block of granite and lined with nubuck top-grain leather. It also comes with an 8-carat flawless diamond that can be used in place of the pink one.” – Most Expensive
…and wait till you hear all of the cool stuff it can do! Oh wait, only the exact same stuff as your $200 version.
