Lifestyle | My Guilty Pleasures

We all have a TV show that we secretly watch, a cringy celebrity crush, a trashy novel we love to read or a song/boy band we know deep down is seriously cheesy but can’t help loving. Here’s some of my guilty pleasures…

The 80’s
I love all things 80’s! The hair, fashion, music and movies. I listen to the following cheesy 80’s tunes on a regular basis; Tainted Love – Soft Cell, Walk This Way – Aerosmith (I love Aerosmith!), Holding Out For A Hero – Bonnie Tyler, Every Rose Has Its Thorn – Poison, Only You – Yazoo and Livin’ on a Prayer – Bon Jon Jovi. And absolutely love car-crash, cheesetastic movies like; Scarface (one of my favourite movies of all time), The Princess Bride, Mannequin, Splash, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters and, of course, Dirty Dancing.

The Kardashians 

I watch their programs, I follow them on social media, I want to be Khloe’s best friend and I’ve even downloaded their game! I know I shouldn’t but I really love the Kardashians. I don’t know why but I think I’ve watched their True Hollywood Story on E! at least a dozen times. E! is a major source of my guilty pleasure viewing; Total Divas, The Real Housewives, Fashion Police, House of DVF, Tia & Tamera – I watch it all!

Watching Animal Vines
I could literally sit and watch dog and cat related vines all day. I know they only last a few seconds but I can seem to fill whole Sunday mornings doing nothing but watching pugs on roller skates, cats looking shocked or a baby monkey riding a pig. I mean how can you not love this…

One Direction
So I know it’s not technically ‘cool’ to like boy bands anymore but nobody can deny they have been releasing some really catchy tunes recently. I honestly think everyone secretly loves 1D. You can’t help but tap your foot or hum to ‘She belongs to me’, try it, it’s impossible! 

50 Shades of Grey
“It’s so badly written”, “who actually reads that?”, “it’s so trashy” – it’s funny because that’s what I said about the first one, which I continued to read till the end, and then went on to read the second… and the third… and then went to see the film. Is anyone going to actually admit to liking this franchise? Come on, anyone? But it sold a 100 million copies so somebody must have enjoyed them? I know I can’t admit it either. 

Listening to Britney Spears, especially Born to Make You Happy.
Stealing toiletries from hotels – freebies!
Watching old episodes of Saved by the Bell on YouTube.
Wearing all my fiance’s clothes around the house. Hoodies, socks, PJs, t-shirts – all his clothes are way comfier than mine. 
Repeatedly quoting an episode of Friends seconds before the punchline to wind up whoever’s watching it. Also quoting Friends in everyday situations – “PIVOT!”
Collecting Disney blu-rays and pretending they’re all for my future children.
Buying myself a full sized Creme Egg Easter egg and devouring it while watching, you’ve guessed it, E!

What are some of your guilty pleasures?

It could be spending £30 on a foundation you’ve used once, dancing around the living room to music channels, watching Frozen over and over and over again – yep these are all mine too. Whatever they are I’d love to hear about them. Leave a comment below and don’t forget to follow me on Bloglovin!
