Few words about guilty pleasures…

I have to start with the confession that I have self-discipline build in me. From the very early years, I knew how to divide my time and when to play and when to learn and do my homework. During my university years when I was exposed to constant tests and exams that self-discipline became even more obvious. As a result, I may have occasional difficulty to switch off and just relax. I feel the more I have on my plate, the better I can perform but I also know that there is limit to what I should handle.

That is where the guilty pleasures are coming and saving my sanity and help me to relax.  Having work-life balance is very important to me to be able to keep distance and enjoy my life. Everything listed below is very personal to me and as everybody is different your needs and necessities will vary.

Theses are mine (but keep it secret !):

  • Eighties music (the cheesier the better) especially when I am driving on my own and when I can sing along…
  • Shopping for holidays when I am not going on one… I will start the minute I come back home after a longer trip. It is difficult to explain but I love it !
  • Binging on YouTube… My favourite channels will include Fleur DeForce, Tanya Burr or Chase Amie !
  • Shopping in Space NK… It is a boutique beauty chain with the best selection of brands you can imagine. I love spending my money there but I am not sure if my husband can say the same…
  • Anything to do with yoga ! I try to do yoga most days, especially in the morning to wake me up. I have been practising it for over 10 years and nothing works better for mind and body.
  • Online shopping is something I love… Sometimes browsing is enough but every now and again I feel like I need to pull the trigger and treat myself !
  • Coffee !! I love going out for a cup or two… I like my coffee strong with a touch of milk so coffee of choice would be flat white.
  • Pancakes and waffles… I like mine with fruits and maple syrup all every day not only on Sundays !


I would love to hear about your guilty pleasures… Care enough share ?

Thank you very much for stopping by and I hope to see you back very soon !

  1. Oh, Aggie. I love that look. It’s so wow! The lovely V neckline, the waistline, and the gentle flare the the skirt, and the colour. Is there a style and colour that doesn’t suit you? From all I have seen so far, I think not.
    As for my guilty pleasures. I will get back to you on those I. promise.

  2. Hi Aggie, I’m with you on the holiday guilty pleasure, I love to plan my next trip as soon as I get back from the present one. It is just one of many as I don’t have much self discipline 🙂

  3. Dear Aggie,
    I have given your question much thought, and fear my list would be endless. But here are a handful of my guilty pleasures.

    1. I love the Arts. Sometimes I will treat myself to an original watercolour or oil painting. Or a
    small bronze sculpture or jade figures.
    2. I love good music. Operas by Puccini and Verdi. Classical works by Beethoven, Chopin, Schubert.
    Jazz played on a piano, Dylan and Sinatra. If you only listen to one album/cd check out, `Songs for Swingin`Lovers`. it is the definitive Frank Sinatra at his best.
    3.When listening to the above, I sit on my sofa with a little box of Belgium`s finest chocolates, a glass
    of red wine, or maybe, a nice cup of tea.
    4. I like buying good quality clothing. But just enough for every occasion. Oh, and shoes. I just love shoes, Ones made of nice leather that can be repaired.
    5.Finally, because the nights are drawing in, I love flowers. Not the large blousey ones; the little pretty
    ones to arrange in vases and place in my sitting room or on the kitchen table.

    I hope this good answer your question, Aggie Oh , I have not mentioned poetry. perhaps another time.
    Jo xx
