Shallow guilty pleasures

Like Tree133Likes

Mine are jewelry and watches - all much too expensive but I drool over them. I love:

Ebel wave watch

Temple St. Clair

John Hardy (I like the dragons even though they aren't "me" - but I get a kick out of them.) I might eventually buy a tiny cute dragon pendant.... somewhere in me there is a fearsome entity that breathes fire!


What are your shallow guilty pleasures?
2/c Coarse hair med. density.
Highly porous. Color over grey.
I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
Every day is a gift
Shoes. I went for years with trouble finding shoes that would fit because be feet are small but WIDE. Now that I have discovered shoe stretchers I can buy almost any shoes I see. So I've gone shoe crazy!!

All of the above Minus a few. I like watches but I have broken every single watch I have ever owned.

Clothes, shoes, jewelry, makeup, and entertainment (movies/shows/games) are my pleasures. Though 1 & 2 are necessary unless one lives in a nudist colony.

When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

I'm really not a shopper, although it's more fun now that I'm more fit. I tend to gravitate towards things like handbags, know, accessories

Just think I used to worry 'bout things like that,

I love clothes, shoes, purses, jewelry like most women BUT my guilty pleasure is having a pedicure done by a man. I go in 2xs per month.

I have several but my most recent is good tea. i love coffee and tea but I have to drink both cold. Well, I literally have to drink coffee cold (or I get very jittery) but I guess I just strongly prefer to drink tea cold.

So there is this place near my job, Zen Cha Tea Salon, and a cup of tea costs $5-$7. But I love it!!!!! They have about 50 different types, most of which is available cold, too. Black, green, white, red, decaf, chai, everything.

I am so addicted to this but it is so expensive and frivolous. Yesterday I had a South American mate peppermint tea and the day before, A Morrocan green tea w/ mint and cardamom...and an awesome ginger beef salad. Yes, they have great food, too.

But other frivolous things I enjoy are scented bath salts (not the drugs, the actual bath salts LOL), really good quality, oversize leather handbags, Starbucks, Porterhouse steaks, beautiful/artsy stationary, fashion magazines (even in languages I don't understand), Agatha Christie mysteries, hoop earrings and good quality/specialty chocolate.


A lot of my weekly paycheck goes towards high end makeup brands

Shoes. I have too many. I don't wear them, but I love them and keep buying them.

Coach leather purses. I buy them on Ebay to avoid feeling so guilty, but I still LOVE them.

Makeup, specifically eyeshadow palettes and lipstick/gloss. I've had a weakness for at least 30 years.

I also have a weakness for Hello Kitty. I buy little HK tchotchkes like iphone cases, key rings, and little figurines. I don't think I'd ever get anything obnoxious like a purse or outfit. It's mainly stuff that is inexpensive, unobtrusive and doesn't scream "UNPROFESSIONAL WEIRDO" at work.

When are women going to face the fact that they donít know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?

Books. I have to give myself a talk before going into a bookstore. I feel less guilty online because the books are usually much cheaper. At one time, I had more books than clothes.

I also love quality, high end chocolates, cupcakes, ice cream and coffee. They taste better and I appreciate businesses putting more effort into packaging.

Makeup. Six months ago I hardly used any, but lately I've been hooked. And beauty blogs or vlogs. I was never into beauty magazines, but seeing actual people, not models, do their make up and give their honest reviews on products made the whole thing seem more accessible to me. Plus I discovered the Brazilian sephora website. It will be my downfall.

Sunglasses, nice ones. Every couple of years my husband and I will get new pairs.

The usual, of course: cross-body bags and shoes (this year I have a thing for flatforms), but also (and strangely) makeup brushes. I don't even use one of them, but it was just so darned cool (ergonomic design!) that I bought it anyway.

Pens. Socks. Rugs. Blue plates. Pictures of dogs/dog art. Sheets.

I have to add small kitchen gadgets. Many I never use but I have them. I can't resist if I'm in a kitchen store. I can go crazy!
Office supplies. I love them. I will BUY ALL THE PENS.
