Blog-Tember | Day 20 Pleasures

Today’s prompt: It’s guilty pleasure time! Shows, books, songs, foods whatever it might be!

Moment of truth: I don’t exactly believe in “guilty pleasures” I only believe in pleasures. Lol. I have just removed the whole guilt part (at least for the most part)

I grew up with a MASSIVE guilt complex. Ask any of my family members. I apologized on average about 20 times a day for literally everything I did or didn’t do.

Today I try not to think in black and white terms of my decisions (good versus bad food for example) I try to think more abstractly and give myself lots of compassion. I try to stay curious before I judge myself.

So my what brings me pleasure? (well this is starting to sound oddly sexual now) Promise to keep it PG:

The Mindy Project
Parks and Recreation
Brooklyn Nine Nine
Chocolate pretzels
Chocolate covered almonds
Chocolate with sea salt
Chocolate with caramel
Chocolate cupcakes
A can of black olives
Box macaroni and cheese
Buying nail polish almost every time I go to Target (or doing something else to get nail polish, read below*)
Buying anything cute and miniature
Keeping tags on new things forever because it makes it feel new longer. (drives Scott nuts)
Not doing laundry and buying more underwear at Target instead
Taylor Swift
Dark Horse Coffee
Christian Romance Novels and the occasional Nicholas Sparks novel (I admit to having some sheepish feelings about this)
Christmas Hallmark movie specials
Pulling my car over when I see a sign for puppies and pretending I am interested and can afford 1,000 for this niche breed.
Picking all my nail polish off in one full sheet
Smelling books
Signing up for a free box of something and then canceling it*

Can't wait to hear about yours!


  1. Hi Heather, love your post! Anyone who loves puppies is ok by me :) Our furbaby Jade is a rescue and she is such a joy :) You love chocolate too :) My entire guilty pleasures post is all about chocolate! I've been far too fond of Kraft Cheesy Pasta (boxed macaroni cheese here in Scotland) for too many years, I can't help it, so I no longer try, and I don't eat it terribly often, it's a rare treat so I figure it's ok :) Lovely to met you, sending heaps of hugs xx

    1. So nice to meet you Rosie! Your fubaby Jade is so cute! Sometimes I go on rescue dog sites and want to rescue all the puppies! Our landlord doesn't allow dogs but I can't wait till we can have one. Also you live in Scotland?!! My husband and I have been saving to go there for years!!! Hoping to make it happen someday in the next 5 years :)

  2. Chocolate pretzels dipped in peanut butter! YUM. I have and will continue to do that for as long as I live! Haha. I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who smells books either ;)
