My ideal lifestyle is the one I already have except I would have much more money to do exciting things many times a year, such as travel, be able to afford certain social events, concerts, more cinema, more culture, etc. Also, I'd be able to afford more books.
A quaint home in the countryside surrounded by forest, with sublime home decor ("sublime" = my personal taste, beauty is subjective) with a garden. I work on my home & garden everyday, it is my joy.
Ideally, I have a job that I enjoy.
Ideally, I don't need a car to move around, but of course living in the middle of the forest I would need one (*cries*).
Outside of work, daily life consists of being in the forest with my husband (we're not married on paper, but in heart & behavior yes so I call him husband). I collect the herbs and edible wilds and greens and fruits and nuts and seeds I can find for our consumption. I spend half my days studying herbology.
My partner and I are very much into "old times" recreations, such as viking recreations, and that's basically how we like to live. We make our own stuff and rarely buy stuff. We know how to sew, and construct stuff, and make crafts, and I cook and bake excellently everything from scratch. We don't eat processed frankenfood.
We like archery, sword fighting, working out, hiking... that's how we spend our days.
I say "we" constantly because he is my lifestyle too, as weird as this might sound. I can't imagine a life without this person. However, I already lived like this when I was single, and I will continue to have this lifestyle whether this person is here or not.
If we had the money, we'd travel around Europe more.
I'm into simple living, but I'm not a minimalist at all. I have tons of cooking pans, baking molds and pans and stuff, I like to have tons of trinket boxes to keep my art & crafts supplies, I have three thousand cushions in the house, puffs, rugs, glorious curtains, textiles made in Europe and India... everything has a purpose, I collect nothing "just because". If it doesn't have a use, I'll give it away or sell it. But I use everything I own. I also tend to have six million plants in every room of the house. I like lush interiors -and exteriors.
Tea & infusion & elixir drinking is also a crucial activity in my lifestyle. I pee a lot as a consequence, but hey love my herbs.
My lifestyle also includes meditation, yoga, swimmin in the river, going to the ocean once or twice a week, reading tons of gorgeous fiction books, flea markets, farmer's markets, attending spiritual seminars and conferences, going to manga conventions once a year... so many things!
Ideally we'd install solar pannels on our roof and pay no taxes for it. Yeah keep dreaming ¬¬ Taxes are there, we must deal with it I guess, grrrrrr.
I dress impeccably (to my own taste) with eco clothing and jewelry made of recycled metals. My image is majestic.
