If we could walk a mile in Gwyneth Paltrow's fabulous stiletto shoes…

Just think of all the luxury beauty treatments we could get, international cuisine we could eat, celeb pals we could encounter. Heck, if we're really dreaming big, let's forget 24 hours of good ol' Gwyn and imagine a whole month in the A-lister's life. What does that look like, you ask? We took a look back at the actress' past interviews, goop recommendations and recent Instagram posts to create a proposed itinerary of sorts.

Below, check out a schedule of the star's daily highlights—and how to get a similar experience on your own budget!

Day 1: A Family Trip to Barcelona

Her Cost: $5,000 for a first-class flight from LAX to Barcelona
Our Cost: $1,022 for a round-trip ticket in coach

Day 2: Tapas at Tickets restaurant in Barcelona
