Guilty Pleasure

14 May

Howdy! This week’s prompt for my blogging goup GBE2 is ‘Guilty Pleasure’.  When I saw that I thought…just one?  I have so many. Let’s start with the obvious, lipstick. Yes, this blog is called lipstick journey for a reason.  I have loved lipstick for so long, well since college, and now that I am in my 40’s, that makes it 20+ years.  I buy and wear lipstick based on my mood. Those closest to me (mainly my women friends) can tell what kind of mood I’m in based solely on the color of lipstick I’m wearing when they see me. I probably buy on average a lipstick a week, so this is guilty pleasure #1.

For Mother’s Day my kids got me a chocolate bouquet. That’s right, not flowers, a bouquet made of chocolate bars…they know me so well. Chocolate is guilty pleasure #2. I have to have some type of chocolate every day, even if it’s dessert after breakfast. I’ve tried to cut back but why? More and more research says that a little chocolate (like wine) is good for you! While we’re on the sweets…junk food in general is guilty pleasure #3. I absolutely love french fries, potato chips (mainly plain and BBQ), walking tacos (chili over Fritos…so good), well, you get the idea…a little sugar (chocolate) needs a little salt.

I have a few other guilty pleasures but I’ll leave it at that, the list could get dangerous. Looking at the list I just posted I decided that they are just pleasures, I have no guilt. HA! Today I wear Nars lipstick in Jungle Red. It is a semi-matte bright red (a little drying, wear lipbalm underneath and a clear gloss or lipbalm on top). Yup, feeling a little feisty!

    I can completely identify with that guilty pleasure of junk food and chocolate. Your post inspired me…so thank you.

    A different colour for every mood? Well you beat our my single colour for everything! It must be a great signal for your kids when they want to ask for a favour (judging your mood, I mean). As for the chocolate – I’m right there with you. Dark chocolate with a cup of tea . . . drool inducing.

      OK, now I’m curious…a single color for everything? Can’t imagine, although most of my colors come from the same family (plum)!

    I love a little chocolate. And it’s funny, I enjoy a little nibble of it every day, but I have no desire to sit down and eat a 10 lb. box of chocolates!

      Me too!! I would get sick if I ate that much…just a little something everyday…sometimes even as dessert for breakfast! 🙂

    You know I love my dark chocolate and coffee…that is often my breakfast! He he…and I seldom leave the house without one of my fave chocolate or mocha lipsticks firmly on my lipoids. ♥

    A chocolate bouquet?! Oh, yes! And I agree about chocolate needing a salty companion. That’s why movie popcorn and Snowcaps are so utterly fabulous together. :O)

    • Anna May 21, 2012 at 4:22 pm #

      Absolutely! I do popcorn and raisinettes (does that count as a fruit too?)

    I’ll exchange the lipstick for a bag of chips any day 😉

    • Anna May 21, 2012 at 10:29 pm #
