Living in The Lap of Luxury

I LOVE anything and everything luxury, it defines my style and if I had the money I would give into it. I know the things listed below are extremely gaudy and gratuitous but that doesn't stop me from wanting and loving the opulence!
Pictured on the left: Chocolate cake covered with edible gold. Pictured on the right: Champagne with edible gold flakes. This gave me an idea I will probably be using for my wedding. I'm looking into ordering edible gold to put in champagne and other various cocktails. Fortune Small Business Magazine named edible gold leaf the most expensive food. One pound costs $75,000. The cheaper option is to buy small (sand like) 23k edible gold in a shaker, which retails for about $30. My Grandmother's sister used to use edible gold when she entertained, maybe that's where I get it?
This Macbook pro was blinged out by Stuart Hughes. He is famous for blinging electronics including iphones, game consoles, and televisions. See below for more Stuart Hughes designs! This Macbook is all platinum, and the Apple logo is encrusted with 53 'IF' Flawless diamonds, for a total of 22.5 carats. If you want to buy it, it will burn $209,000 in your pocket.
Ooooh how I wish I owned this TV. Another design by Stuart Hughes. It is the most expensive television set in the world at $2,250,000.00 The PrestigeHD Supreme Rose Edition is has screen size of 55 inches and covered with 28 kilograms of solid 18ct rose gold. The entire frame of the is adorned with 72 flawless IF diamonds.

You're looking at one of the most expensive mattresses in the world. The Gold Mattress is made byMagniflex and has 22-carat gold yarn cover and features the company’s patented Memoform Core, which adapts to the shape of the body with up to 85 percent accuracy. Magniflex says the physical properties of gold makes the mattress anti-bacteria, anti-inflammatory, anti-stress and anti-dust mite and odor-free. It sells for $24,000 and comes with matching gold pillows, priced at $1,000 each.
For $3.2 Million, you can own this gold and diamond 3GS iphone. It has been named the most expensive cell phone in the world. The phone itself is made entirely of 271 grams of 22 carat high grade gold, with the front panel consisting of an astounding 68 carats of 136 flawless diamonds and the navigation button on the iPhone 3GS Supreme is composed of a single rare 7.1 carat diamond.

Here is another design by Stuart. A Wii made of gold and encrusted with 78 diamonds. Retail is $487,000.00. Here is a similar look to Stuart Hughes' iphone 3GS design for a cheaper price. It is called Royal Crown iPhone Case and is studded with swarovski crystals. Retail is $180.00.
I first saw these "Sweet Dreams Beds" on Kimora Lee Simmons' show Life in the Fab Lane, and wanted to look them up to see how much they cost. Obviously this bed is a child's bed...Here's the description from "Imagine your little princess sliding down this slide in her best ball gown! This beautiful Princess Palace Bed features custom hand turned spindles, custom fiberglass fabricated curved slide, custom made spiral staircase, and so much more. The grand spiral staircase leads to a balcony complete with pink turrets." I asked Chris if we could make one of these for our child(ren) when we have them because the cost would be in the hundreds as opposed to a whopping $50,000 to order.
