How would YOU spend £500?

So… some or all of you will know what I’ve been saving my money for lately.
It’s been the reason I’ve had no hauls and no new beauty products to share here with you lately (apologies)
Anywho… so I have my money all saved and this week Lee and I are off work so the plan was to …. SHOP! My problem is this… can I really spend all that money on one item?
Here’s what I’ve been saving for…
There are 3 different prints and 3 different sizes… I’m undecided on print but I think the size will be the MM which is Medium… mostly because the largest seems comically big for an everyday bag but also because when Lee and I get maried my initials will be MM!
The size I want costs £465.. Other than my computer and my car I have never spent even close to that kind of money on one item and I’m nervous to say the least.
I may never have this chunk of cash saved again specifically for this so I feel like I’ll regret not buying it if I spend the cash elsewhere but would I rather regret not buying this one thing or buy it and regret spending all that money on something that just doesn’t live up to my expectations? I don’t go around flashing the cash and although I’ve discovered I spend an obscene amount of money on makeup etc but it’s different spending £50 here and there on a beauty hall splurge and spending this huge amount on ONE THING!!! ugh! Champagne problems, right?
I was looking at what else I could get for the £500 I have saved…
When you look at it like that I’m a bit… eek!
So…I’m asking you.. if you have £500 to spend.. what would you spend it on?

    I can definitely see what you mean, saving up and then thinking.. actually what else could I get with all this money. You did save up for the LV bag in the first place though. Just make sure you definitely want it before you part with the cash! I've got to say the other combinations look tempting. You could even go on holiday with £500! lol! xxx

    If you originally wanted the bag then go for it! I'd love a LV, I actually planned on starting a handbag fund so I could also one day get one 🙂 so yeah, i'd say defo defo go for the LV xx

    get the bag, you saved for it and you won’t get the same satisfaction from the rest. i always said my first pay check would get me a LV hehe, but I haven’t done it yet!

    Get the bag, it's a timeless piece that won't go out of style like the other products. Consider it an investment 😉

    I really want an LV bag too and An Iphone 4, and I got £450 for my birthday so I dont know which to get, but Spending that Much on one item seems crazy! I was persuaded out of Buying the Iphone, to wait for the 5 to come out,, so Lets hope i still have the cash after!

    just to let you know,you might have to check to see if the price of the bag went up 0_0, LV increased their prices,AGAIN….not impressed….
