10 Guilty Pleasures

Hello there loves! How have you all been doing? I have a bit of a quirky post to share with you today. With finals approaching, I have a habit of indulging in many guilty pleasures more often than I would if I wasn't so stressed so I figured I'd share them with you guys. Most of the list consists of food as procrastination + stress = me wanting to eat everything.

1) Buying Little Black Dresses
Via Moxieq

Seriously, I must own at least 5 or 6 different types of LBD's. They are just the perfect go-to thing and being stressed causes me to buy a bit impulsively which has resulted in me having 83748374 little black dresses.

2) Au Bon Pain Cappuccino's

I think you all my know of my obsession through this post as it was one of the things I was most thankful for. I love love loveeeeee cappuccino's and I have them even when I truly don't need them but I can't help it at this point. Winter days make it worse because it happens to be all I crave for.

3) Sour Straws/Sour Patch Fruits/Sour Anything!

My entire house is addicted to these things. Whether it's Wine Wednesdays (Yes, we have a dedicated night to drinking wine haha) or we're studying, the first thing we grab is anything sour from the corner store. It doesn't help that our corner store is literally half a block away.

4) Buying Scarves

Via CricketsCreations
I love scarves. I might just own a scarf in every color and let's face it, for those cold winter days, what can be better than a cozy scarf?

5) Buying Chinese Food

Oh Chinese food, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. On a serious note, my boyfriend and I are ADDICTED to Chinese food. Considering our irregular schedules that change day to day, there was even a point where I think we ate Chinese takeout twice a week. It's probably one of the most unhealthy things you can eat but it's so good!

6) Doritos Spicy Sweet Chili

This is a recent guilty pleasure as I recently discovered that these chips exist when one of my roommates got a whole pack of all different types of Doritos chips. It all went downhill from there. I love these! While I normally cannot take any spice, these offer a nice pinch of spice while not being too overwhelmingly spicy.

7) Black Nail Polish

Via Washingtonian

With nail polish, some colors suit specific seasons. However, I think that black nail polish is just right for any occasion. When I want to procrastinate, one of the first things I do (besides eating junk) is paint my nails. It offers me some relaxing time while I get to pamper myself. I also love how funky black nail polish looks.

8) Buying Cool Tights

This is also a recent guilty pleasure but it's one I can't seem to shake just yet. These two lovely tights are now new additions to my wardrobe and I can't wait to wear them. For now, I'm practically living in sweats as I study. I do occasionally dress up though. With holidays coming around, I know I'll find endless reasons to wear them. (Christmas is in 11 days, just sayin')

9) Wearing Big Sweaters

Via Vinatran
I love comfortable big sweaters! I'm currently wearing one of my boyfriend's hoodies as I type. I don't know why men's clothes are so comfy but I'm pretty sure I've stolen a big chunk of his wardrobe because it is all so comfortable. The sweater above is especially lovely as it looks so comfortable but also looks stylish. I have one similar to this in grey.

Last, but certainly not least,

10) Drinking too much Pepsi

I drink way too much caffeine but it's so easy to indulge when one has irregular sleep schedules and needs caffeine to make it through a semester.

And there you have it, my 10 guilty pleasures. What are yours? =]

Thanks for visiting SHE! You have such a cute blog and I love your header.

This list was so fun to read through. I recently tried black nail polish and loved it!


This is such a great post, love it!
Nothing wrong with buying too many little black dresses, there good and can be worn for an evening with heels, or accessoeroized down and casually with jeans/leggings/jeggings etc for an everyday look depending on the dress style!
+ you drink too much pepsi, im ADDICTED to diet coke haha :)
