My Top 10 Guilty Pleasures | What Are Yours?

My Top 10 Guilty Pleasures | What Are Yours?

7 Years Ago By Diana Adams

As I secretly indulged in some of my favorite things this morning, I started thinking about guilty pleasures. The urban dictionary says guilty pleasures are those things we shouldn’t like, but we like anyway. I think this is a contradiction in terms. They are things we do but don’t talk about to anyone. If we really like doing something, we shouldn’t feel guilty about it, right?

CNN did a story on this last year entitled We men don’t have ‘guilty’ pleasures. According to that article, for men, “obsessions are points of pride, not shame.” I don’t think women should hang their heads in shame either. What are yours? I wonder if any of yours are the same as mine.

My Top 10 Guilty Pleasures

1. Tweeting while taking a bubble bath and drinking a beer.

This is, by far, is number one on my guilty pleasures list. I love it and I’ve only ever told one other person about it.

2. Listening to my “Barry Manilow – Greatest Hits” CD

Barry Manilow rules my world. This one is a little embarrassing. Yep, I still cry sometimes at the beginning of “Mandy.” Go ahead, laugh it up. He is one of the best guilty pleasures for sure.

3. Watching any of the Alien movies

Sigourney Weaver is the bomb and spending a random Tuesday afternoon watching those movies is heaven on earth to me.


4. Listening to a guy with an accent talk

Oh. My. Gosh. Talk about a guilty pleasure – I could listen to a guy with an accent talk all day long. If it’s a European or Australian accent, I turn to complete mush. This is one guilty pleasure I don’t get to experience often, but when I do, I can’t get enough.

5. Late night Taco Bell, chocolate ice cream and Easy Cheese (squirted straight into your mouth)

Yep, it doesn’t get any better than this! The question is, is Easy Cheese really even cheese? I don’t think I want to know.


6. Regifting

Regifting is something I think many people do but few will admit. It fits the true definition of guilty pleasure. It’s so fun to take that lame gift and pass it on. No need to feel guilty because the person you gave it to will probably pass it on too!

7. Fuzzy socks that go all the way up to your knee

Ahh… I don’t know why, but every time I put on a pair of those soft socks, I feel like I’m a queen. They are just so cozy and warm. I love it when I get these socks as a gift and I treasure them. What guilty pleasures they truly are!


8. Reading “OK” Magazine

That magazine is so bad, it’s good. It is one of the easiest guilty pleasures out there. Just grab one at the supermarket for a few hours of indulgence. I don’t care that most of that celebrity stuff isn’t true; I just want to look at all the pictures and dream that I owned as many pairs of shoes as Suri Cruise.

9. Sleeping late without being interrupted

Oh.. wow.. what a guilty pleasure. I haven’t been able to do this for months; lately there just isn’t room in my schedule. Do you remember when we were teenagers and we would go to sleep Friday night and wake up late in the afternoon on Saturday? Back then, I didn’t realize how indulgent that was. What I would do for a solid twelve hours of sleep right now. :)

10. Stealing fluffy pillows from luxurious hotels

True, it’s against the law, but dang, gimme a break. Sometimes you lay on a pillow and it’s so soft and perfect that you just can’t leave without it. Don’t lie; you know you’ve done it too.

I have a guilty pleasure T.T I love yaoi. If you don’t know what yaoi is it is a genre of anime and manga that is sometimes just as sexual as hentai. The only difference is that there are no female characters. Instead it’s male on male… The sex scene are very hot considering its only anime/manga… :)
But I come across as a young sweet well mannered woman who attends university. :D

The only person who knows about my yaoi problem is my fiancé :3

I just started reading Harlequin Romance novels on my kindle about a year ago (Harlequin Blaze is my favorite). They’re so incredibly cheesy that they make me laugh but I just can’t stop reading them:) I’ve also been absolutely obsessed with My Little Pony since I was like 4, I love anything with glitter on it, and also, I love leg warmers and I have about 15 pairs.
