Guilty Pleasures

GUILTY pleasures? I don't think so! I would never feel guilty for something that gives me pleasure. Isn't joy, happiness and pleasure what we spend our lives trying to find and experience? When you find something that blows your hair back, why would you feel guilty about that?

It got me thinking about my definitely-not-guilty guilty pleasures. And seeing that making lists gives me an immense amount of pleasure, here is my Top 10 “guilty” pleasures list:
  1. Reality shows - The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, The Bachelorette, Project Runway, Keeping up with the Kardashians, you name it, I'll watch it. 
  2. Sleeping in on a Saturday - And it's even better when I continue to wear my pajamas for the rest of the afternoon. 
  3. McDonalds delivery -  Don't be too jealous, but here in Taiwan, McDonalds delivers to your door 24/7. You heard me, even at 3:00am! 
  4. Shopping - Anywhere, anytime and any place. 
  5. Doing absolutely nothing 
  6. People-watching - We humans do really strange, and entertaining, things when we think nobody is watching us. 
  7. www.peopleofwalmart.com - This website makes me feel really good about myself. 
  8. Staying in a really nice hotel - It's clean, it has a nice, big bath tub, fluffy white robes and a mini bar. What's not to love? 
  9. Buying stationery -  I can never have enough notebooks, color markers, highlighters, Post Its or multicolored folders.  
  10. Chips and snacks - I'm a snacker. I love to munch and nibble around the clock.

Honestly, I don't feel a teeny tiny bit guilty about any of these things. If I'm not hurting myself or anyone else, I should not feel guilty for wanting to know what the Kardashian sisters are up to, or for eating that whole family size bag of Cheetos by myself. So what “guilty” pleasure blows your hair back?


  1. Oh man, reality shows is definitely up there on my list. However, I'd have to add some guilty pleasure music such as some Ke$ha and Britney Spears every now and then...I'm ashamed of it but their songs are just so damn catchy! Agh...don't judge, don't judge haha. And McDonalds delivery??? Say what?!?

  2. I second the reality shows bit. All day Every day! Any type All types!

  3. Em, I'm not even ashamed that I like Britney and Kesha! LOL And yes, McDonalds delivery, can you believe that!?

  4. Vulnavia, what's your favorite reality shows? I used to love The Hills and The City before it got canceled. Oh, and there are many more...

  5. Hannah, yes! Freakin' McDonalds delivery! I heart Taiwan!

  6. My husband would be in danger of ordering McDonalds every day haha!

  7. Jealous of McDonalds delivery.. although its probably better we don't have that!

    I LOVE nice hotels. I love being upgraded to nicer suites.. it's happened once, but that was the BEST sleep of my life.

    Meh to reality shows. :) But that's just me!

    Glad you're proud of your guilty pleasures!

  8. I saw a McDonalds delivery advertisement in India and was hoping they'll start it here in Sri Lanka as well. But nope, they didn't. You're so lucky! :)

  9. Great list, they are definitely some of my favourite things too! I love reality shows. In fact, I was watching the Bachelorette last night and almost shed a tear - I love a real life fairy tale. Shopping and buying stationary is also top of my list hehe.
    To add to your very good list, my guilty pleasure is eating chocolate :)

  10. Omg, I love this post! I have also fallen victim to the reality show addiction. Real Housewives of New Jersey is my favorite. Shopping is another "guilty pleasure" that you and I have in common. For me in particular, it's buying makeup and nail polish. No one should go into a Rite Aid for toothpaste and walk out with $50 in makeup, but I somehow find a way!


  11. Wait. McDonald's delivery!?!? My mind was just blown.

  12. The McDonalds delivery definitely comes in handy on a lazy Sunday evening! I always feel bad for the poor delivery person that needs to climb four flights of stairs to get to my apartment...

  13. Loving this list! New follower from 20sb! :)

  14. lol im sooo jealous mcdonalds delvers! ur guilty pleasures are great! i love them all!

  15. I just realized I wasn't following your blog- problem solved, I'm your newest follower! Buying stationery is seriously a problem for me. I have a lot. I also love People of Walmart, and I find myself people watching when I'm at Walmart and imagining the photos I would take and post if I had the nerve. But I would be afraid someone would catch me/ I think I would feel bad!
