I’ve been feeling really blah the last two days – been having trouble sleeping; am totally overworked and yet trying to find some ‘me time’ so as to be totally rested in time for my clients’ upcoming wedding.
Despite having had a migraine the whole day – I’ve been feeling kind of guilty that I couldn’t get as much work done that I wanted to. I got to thinking about guilty feelings and ended up thinking of all the guilty pleasures that I’ve indulged in.
So here it is .. My Top 12 Guilty Pleasures ….
1. Chocolate. Chocolate. and More Chocolate.
Give me any chocolate – milk, dark, white – and I’ll have it. I’m a self-proclaimed dessert-holic. I prefer desserts to main courses.
With lots of Hersheys chocolate syrup. 2 scoops of ice cream (vanilla & chocolate chip) with enough Hersheys’ syrup to just spoon up once the ice cream is over. Although I must say – having ice cream licked off your back is one of the most sensuous feelings ever !!! *sigh*
It’s no secret. I love my camera. It’s my addiction. My sister labeled me Paparazzi and Paparazzo a few years ago. Everyone calls me that. They pretend to hate it when I take their pictures – but they are the first to tag themselves and complain if an album is not up on FB the next day. Even my friends’ mum knows me as the FB Queen of Photos ! It’s a Sign ! hahaha I’ve managed to capture some really nice Mumbai Moments – not to mention lots of other views too :)
I’m the kind of person who doesn’t like dressing up unless I’m going out. If I’m sitting at home – I want to be comfy – and that usually means getting out of my capris (I haven’t worn a pair of jeans in 2 years since moving to Mumbai – too hot!) and straight into a pair of PJ shorts.
5. Bubble Bath.
The last bubble bath I had was in April when my mate HS took me for a ‘don’t think just relax’ weekend. The only thing that can top a bubble bath – is a bubble bath with a very sexy young man, hint of a stubble, and a glass of bubbly too. Damn it. Now I wish I had a tub in my bathroom :(
Oh I’ve romanced an ex with a bubble bath & champers .. I’m still waiting for someone to give me one.
6. Floating in the pool.
It’s an amazing feeling. All sounds get drowned out. It’s just you, and the water – becoming one. Just a few weeks ago after my clients wedding, I managed to go for a dip and it was as if I was submerged in my secret life !
I am a total water baby. I’m an Aquarian after all. I could stare at the ocean all day. I loved going snorkeling in Mauritius (even though I’m scared of fish – yes – really I am) and was almost traumatized when my mate (and now ex boss) threw breadcrumbs which led to a large school of fish all charging in my direction ! And I got to see more than just a whale’s tail :)
I’m not a girly girl – but I love my trips to the salon. It’s a few hours of just ‘me’ time me. I love French manicures (yes those are really my nails).
My sore feet need pedicures after the long hours of dancing. And I really don’t like having body hair
9. Movie / TV Show marathon.
Every now and then, I like being on my own and watching show after show – particularly CSI, Entourage & How I Met Your Mother. All of this because of my cousin NC. We’ve gone through ‘House’, ‘The Mentalist’ and enough movies lazing around on her couch.
11. Handbags. Which woman doesn’t love handbags ? I go out of my way to pick them up. There was a time, I must have had all colours to go with outfits – and various styles. These days – nothing has changed – except I am carrying more of my mums’ funky designer bags (which she’s donated to me – recession peeps!). Fendi, LV, Gucci – I love you all !
12. Scoping out Blogosphere.
There are so many fantastic bloggers out there. I’m constantly discovering new blogs; new ideas & ideologies. In a way – I feel that blogging has made more ‘aware’ of everything around me – that there is this alternative realm outside of my immediate presence where actions & reactions occur simultaneously. I’m more in tune with the universal spectrum and that is a different level of pleasure altogether.
That’s all the guilt that I’m holding on to … what about you ? What are YOUR guilty pleasures ? Come on – I’ve shared mine – it’s only fair that you tell me what yours are :P
If you haven’t already done so – why don’t you make a list of your guilty indulgences and leave the link for me in the comments section so that the rest of the neighbours and I can drop by and check them out :)
