Guilty Pleasures

1, 2, 3, 4

This post is about those wonderful things that make us feel a little guilty, but are far too good not to indulge in once in a while. The things that break the rules slightly, are a little unhealthy, are too expensive to cost-justify but make life that little bit more enjoyable. These are some of my guilty pleasures, what are yours?

  1. A nice long lie-in, even though there are lots of things I should be doing with my day. 
  2. Trashy celebrity gossip magazines - I only ever spend money on them if I'm on a long train journey, but I love reading them on a semi-regular basis in the canteen at work too!
  3. Really good wine - I unfortunately have expensive tastes!
  4. Takeaway for dinner, there's something about getting food delivered that makes it taste so good, especially if it's really cold and miserable outside (which also adds to the guilt-factor, I always feel sorry for the poor delivery person!) and you can't be bothered to go food shopping. 
  5. Rich chocolate cake, bad for the diet but fabulous for the mood!
  6. Posh scented candles, I'd have them all over my house if I could afford it!
  7. Washing my clothes with huge amounts of fabric conditioner (at least twice as much as it says on the bottle) then surrounding myself in soft, lovely smelling fabric!
  8. Just doing... nothing! It's great!

1. Any dessert...sweets are my downfall. I'm too weak to turn them down. Most likely my next tattoo will be dessert themed since it's been a vice I just can't kick.

2. Sitting on my couch watching tv usually makes me feel guilty.

3. Playing video games for several hours at a time.

4. Staying in my pj's all day. This is a rare event and only usually happens when I'm sick but some rare Sundays I have the opportunity and it always makes me feel guilty but dang it just feels so right sometimes.

1. Gossip Girl on DVD

2. Skipping classes to go shopping, go to lunch with friends, or taking pictures.

3. Making lists (no, seriously).

4. Living Etc. magazine

5. Making time to play video games or watch music videos.

2. Cutting sick to 80s hits that are so bad they haven't been returned to hip status.
3. Having a shower when I first wake up and getting back into my pjs and going back to bed.
4. Magazines like Better Homes and Gardens or COuntry Style that I lift when I visit my mum.
5. Looking down and realising you have demolished an entire block of chocolate.

1. Long, hot showers! And I do mean hot.
2. Sweets. Cake, cupcakes, cookies, etc... I have the worst sweet tooth.
3. Coffee Drinks. I will gladly pay $5 for that latte!
4) Blogs. Nothing is better than lying in bed with my laptop, catching up on all my blogs, fashion and gossip alike.
5) Twilight. I love, love the books, and I always will, even though I am not a preteen!
6) Staying in bed with my boyfriend all day long, on the rare days that I have the chance. (Nothing dirty!)

Beating everyone to the bathroom in the morning.
Driving fast with the windows open and the radio blaring.
Getting every last drop of the syrup off the plate.

Everything posted made a great deal of sense.
However, what about this? what if you added a little content?
I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, but what if you added a title to possibly grab people's attention?
I mean "Guilty Pleasures" is kinda boring. You might glance
at Yahoo's home page and watch how they write post headlines to get people interested. You might add a video or a pic or two to grab people excited about everything've got to say.
Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little livelier.
