What are your guilt pleasures?

  1. I am a fanatic about coffee. Very picky about what I drink but do it often. I'm also addicted to magazines. I spend SO much money on magazines -- RealSimple, Jane, InStyle....the list goes on. Very frivolous, but I need some of that in my life.
    I've read the Harry Potter books several times -- and I don't have kids!
    And of course, there's allnurse.com

    Hmmmm guilt pleasures... Is there a linen room nearby... Ooops wrong thread! LOL
    Okay seriously, I love coffee too! I especially love to go to the coffee shops and spend like 4 bucks on a cup!
    Then there's cologne, ahhhh... Hugo, Tommy H., chanel for men...
    And clothes!!! Especially Silk Shirts! I was at the bar a few weeks ago and you know how people will put their hand around your shoulder and pat you on your back, just being friendly, (or feeling you up?) Well this person kept saying, "Wow, your shirt is so soft, it's really soft!" And I was saying stuff like, "if you gave me your number I would throw it away..." ahahahaha I didn't really say that.... I just thought it!
    Oh heck let's face it I work for my guilt pleasures and there are so many!

    Well,I don't have many guilt pleasures, because I gave up drinking alcohol over five years ago. The few that I do have would be smoking cigarettes (need to quit!), and my biggest one would be ICE CREAM. I like several kinds, and I have it every night, or I just don't feel right. I know it's not good for my waist line, but I've got to have it! I like any kind of choclate candy bars, but I stay away from them (I could easily eat several at one time if I got started!). Oh yeah, I don't drink coffee, but I've got to have my Mt. Dew! See you guys later. PEACE. Darby

    1) Perfume - LOVE Elizabeth Arden's RED DOOR...my fav
    2) Purses, like Coach and Dooney & Bourke - Got my eye on a $250 Coach purse...haven't had a new purse since 98 or 99...my Dooney is still in great shape.
    3) Makeup, like Clinique, Lancome (would like to try Bare Escentuals...anyone else watched the infomercial)
    4) Getting my hair done - which I have slacked on after I quit my last job
    5) Getting my nails done - ditto
    6) allnurses.com - no, i'm not addicted. :uhoh21:

    Most women like shopping for clothes. Since I can't buy off the rack in most department stores, I make up for it in all of the above. Hopefully this will change after WLS.
