Guilty Pleasures

We all have them.  They are those little, or sometimes big things that make us happy.  They could be binge-watching a series, a collection of things, a favorite destination, or anything that brings your heart joy that you may stretch the limits of your budget and time to accommodate.

I’m here to tell you not to feel guilty.  If it truly enhances your quality of life and doesn’t have any major negative affects to you or anyone else, go for it!

I will share a few of mine.  The first one is a necessity as I am extremely near-sighted.  I love eyeglasses! I have several pair and I love buying more, but I need them so the pleasure is justified, right?


My other one is Happy Planner planners and all of the accouterments that goes along with them: washi tape, stickers, pens, paper, and the list goes on and on. It is kind of like a guilty pleasure rabbit hole.


I have several others, but those two are the main ones.  Here are a few of my others:

  1. coffee mugs
  2. lip gloss
  3. Tervis tumblers
  4. throw blankets
  5. anything pink
  6. anything teal
  7. anything with an owl on it (I literally have all of the the things on the list, but with an owl on it.  I have a teal owl, a pink owl, an throw blanket with an owl on it, a Tervis tumbler with an owl on it, lip gloss in a container shaped like an owl, and many, many owl coffee mugs).

I would like to challenge all of us to take it easy on ourselves about our guilty pleasure, but lets not let them get out of control.  What are some of your guilty pleasures?
