Take a break from the norm and find ways to customise your life

By LLM Reporters  |  January 7, 2021

All too often we are sectioned off into little boxes based on the political party we support, the job role we have, even down to the make of car we drive and the places we choose for our holiday destinations.

But for so many of us, this doesn’t explain who we really are, and having to succumb to stereotype is simply not an option. Yes, life is made simpler when we are provided with holidays that are packaged up into neat little bundles, clothing that is readily available to buy in our size and in a range of styles, and cookie-cutter homes that we can move straight into, but what happens when you wish to seek out some individuality?

You’ll be pleased to know that if you want to take back control of many aspects of your life, to create an existence that suits your individualism, style and preferences down to the ground, then you can do just this. We all like to believe that we are unique, after all, and no one likes to think that their interiors are the same as the person down the road, or that their car is mirrored on next door’s driveway.

If you’re looking to find ways – big or small – to allow your individuality to shine through in many areas of your life, then read on to discover the ways in which you can achieve this.

Personalised clothing

As mentioned above, it may be easy to head online or walk into a shop and buy some clothes that, roughly, fit your shape and size, but what if you’re not interested in buying what other people buy? Our clothes and accessories are one of the best ways in which we can let our individual style shine through, and if you’re not quite ready to have your garments created from scratch, you can always opt for personalised clothing.

Whether it’s dresses, shirts, jackets, socks, hats, handbags, jewellery or hoodies, you have plenty of options to put your stamp on a range of clothing to suit your style. Perhaps you could create a signature pattern or an emblem that represents who you are, or you just love the idea of having some fun with your clothing and accessories, customisation is the way to go.

It’s all very well spending out on that brand-new Bentley or fancy Ferrari, but why not take it to the next level and add some features that fit you perfectly? Car customisation has come a long way from personalised number plates and choosing your interior fabrics, leathers, woods, colours and finishes. Now, with the like of the Ferrari Car Configurator, you can select your basic model and truly make it your own with a choice of seats, exhaust pipe material, wheel and caliper material and colour and more, making for a unique vehicle that’s truly your own.

Innovative home

When it comes to your home, you will have plenty of ways to make it unique from the rest, whether you are starting from an existing building or you’re building from scratch. Obviously, you will have more freedom if building a home from the ground up, as you will be able to ensure every last brick works in your favour. You can allow your imagination to run wild with your interiors and with an impressive selection of bespoke designers, from kitchen specialists to garden aficionados, across the country, you will no doubt find someone who can bring your visions to life. Whether you fancy recreating a French chateau, innovating an ultra-modern abode full of smart features or crafting a quirky space like no other, the options here are endless.

Whether it’s a surprise weekend away for a loved one or a month-long trip taking in some unique locations, travel is one of those areas in your life where you’ll find that you’re experiencing a distinctive occasion every time you visit with changing factors coming into play. However, it’s not to say that you can’t opt for a holiday that breaks the boundaries of the typical and offers something completely and utterly different to the rest.

Chatting with others and realising that you’ve visited the same sights in Thailand, taken in the same experiences in Mexico or the stood on the very same beaches in Sydney can get a little wearing, even if those holidays bought you great joy. So, if on your next trip you quite fancy doing something entirely different, a bespoke travel company will certainly be able to arrange something perfect for your wild desires.
