Ahhh. The shameful world of guilty pleasures. That's what the sublime Sarah Hegger wants us to discuss today. Specifically, she asks: "What’s your secret passion? I have a thing for shoes and B-grade fantasy movies, what are some of your guilty pleasures?" (You and my husband, Ms. H. The B-grade fantasy movies, that is. Not the shoes.)
Aside from food, because, let's face it, there's not much out there that can be eaten that I'm not a fan of, I have many secret pleasures. But in the interest of keeping this post short, I'm going to go with a shopping pleasure (i.e.: something that costs me money to indulge in) and a personal pleasure (something that I can indulge in that only costs me time.)
My guilty shopping pleasure I actually don't act on regularly. Mainly because it's an expensive one. But recently, when I was in New York City I indulged in this beauty!
Yes, my name is Victoria and I am addicted to fountain pens. I love choosing my ink and slowly filling the converter with my desired colour. I also like to see how long it takes me to have to refill. Refilling your pen with ink is a good sign of how much writing I'm doing. Not that I write my novels with a pen, but all my notes are written by hand with this delicious pen.
My second guilty pleasure wasn't at all guilty in the beginning. But having a child and a busy work-from-home career makes this decadent now. Ahhhh, the bath. The hot, steaming, bubbling bath. My bathroom is my oasis. I have the best tub in the universe and I use it every chance I can get. Hiding away in my pale pink bathroom, soaking in my deep tub, reading.... ah, there's no greater pleasure one can have alone.
I'm not sharing a picture of my bathroom, but this is a pretty accurate image of my bathtub. My bathroom isn't as fancy but it's just as beautiful. :)
And there you have it. Two of my secret pleasures. Let's hop on over to see what Tracey Gee has to share with us today. I bet it's sinful!
