My Top 6 Guilty Pleasures


After another challenging week (much like last week which you can read about here) I believe I deserve to be over indulging in the things that bring me pleasure.

But they are called guilty pleasures for a reason and that is usually because:

A. If your pleasure is a drink or a type of food then they’re probably not that good for you and you are probably having way too much of it;

B. If it’s television then it is probably super trashy; or

C. You probably don’t want people to know you’re into it.

I can answer yes to all of the above where my guilty pleasures are concerned.

This is me at the moment. I don’t give a rats ass that I shouldn’t be having more than 3 cups of coffee per day, desperate times call for desperate measures! Why I am more exhausted looking after the kids at home than I am getting up at the crack of dawn for work I don’t know but until I have done this I am a total zombie. A very grumpy zombie. The guilt part of this lies in the quantity *cough* 6 *cough* and the amount I am spending on treating myself to real coffee! Nothing quite the same as that barista made foamy deliciousness that is a bought flat white.



Ok, so I wasn’t going to watch this. After watching Kaitlyn’s season of The Bachelorette and losing interest towards the end, I thought I’d give this a miss. Oh how glad I am that I didn’t! This shit is so entertaining! It has drama, excitement, passion and did I mention drama?! I love this! This is my Monday and Tuesday nap time pleasure while the little one sleeps and the big boy is at kindy. If you want to escape your life you must indulge in this. Accompanied by coffee and chocolate of course!



I prefer the frozen type but whatever, beggars can’t be choosers! I never drank cocktails in my late teens and early twenties when I was out on the town every weekend (cheap wine was my tipple of choice in those days!) but now that I am only drinking for pleasure (ha, should have remembered that last Friday!) then I will order the drink I discovered and fell in love with at a Mexican restaurant several years ago. With extra salt. Nom!


Bon Jovi

Not only do I love their music but I have always had the biggest crush ever on Jon Bon Jovi. I mean, look at him?! Him and Keanu Reeves, particularly in Speed. It would be a tough choice between the two!

Yes, I’m covering my face in shame. I am a HUGE reality TV fan. It does not stop at The Bachelor in Paradise. Oh no, uh uh. I am also obsessed with The Voice Australia at the moment (and we are behind you Aussies so no spoilers!) and I’m making my way through the last US version on YouTube. On top of that I am also a huge fan of America’s Next Top Model and I’ve been known to dabble in watching a few too many episodes of 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom as well as American Idol and I used to love The Apprentice. Um, and yeah, I’m kinda hooked on the worst dating show in the history of mankind, Take Me Out. Yep. Anything I can watch that requires no brain cells whatsoever is totally my cup of tea!



Ahhhh, ending on a refreshing alcoholic note (again!) I totally went off wine last year (unless it’s sparkling but drinking a bottle by myself is never a good plan!) and my husband received a box of Corona’s for Christmas and why were we not drinking these before?! They have become a staple in our household in summer. A couple of these on the deck every some nights are my ultimate guilty pleasure. Corona’s make me a happy girl.

Do you watch any reality TV? Who is your celebrity crush? What is your alcoholic beverage of choice?

  1. Reality TV is my guilty pleasure too. But you’ll have to lean in close to hear what it is … because I’ll only ever admit to it in a whisper voice behind my hand …. and all watching is done in the bedroom with the door closed …. it’s ….
    KUWTK and I Am Cait.
    There. I said it.
    Oh, and the drink is Killawarra Dusk sparkling wine for drinks.
    Celeb crush changes a lot, but yeah, Jon Bon Jovi is up there!

    1. Oh yay, I’m not alone on the Jon Bon Jovi crush! Haha, I can see why you were whispering on the KUWTK! Lots of flak going around for that one right now! 😉

  2. I’m a 5-6 coffee a day kinda gal too! On days where I’ve actually had a full night’s sleep (about once a fortnight! ) I can cut down to 2-3. Otherwise, it’s the only thing that keeps me going:(

        1. Haha, you’re lucky! When I went into hospital recently for my endo op I nearly died from the headaches! I thought my head was about to explode and I actually lost my mind and couldn’t even function! So bad!

    1. Oh but Kelly, if you were to give The Bachelor in Paradise a go you would so love it! Humour me and drink some alcoholic beverages and watch a couple of episodes ok, call it a social experiment!

  3. I declared to myself at the age of 14 that if I could pash Jon Bon Jovi and then die, it would be worth it. And also with you on early Keanu Reeves, Point Break was the one for me. Also with you on The Voice, Coronas, Margaritas and coffee… although not quite as many, that’s impressive!

  4. If you love Bachelor in Paradise (and generally crap TV and reality shows in general) then do yourself a favour and join the ‘Craptastic TV Club’ facebook group started by Pip (Meet me at Mikes) last week….hilarious!!

    1. My husband is addicted to coke too, and Red Bull. I’m so disappointed in The Voice now though! It started off so well and now it’s just got boring.

  5. Haha! You are the reality TV Queen!!! Unfortunately, I don’t get to watch as much reality TV as much as I like. I’m not into The Bachelor or the renovation shows like The Block but I sat and watched an hour of I am Cait over at my parents’ Foxtel last night and I’m hooked! I hate the Kardashians but at the same, love watching them! There! There’s my guilty pleasure!
