Everyone has heard of the term ‘guilty pleasure’ when you’re chatting about liking something that you might be a little embarrassed to admit you like. We all have them! I’ve been wanting to share some of my own guilty pleasures and ready to dig myself into the biggest hole in case I am judged by everyone on the internet. A few of these are probably liked by a lot of people, but a couple are a little…different.
Don’t ask for a restraining order until after reading the post, ‘kay? ‘Kay.
I’m totally not embarrassed by loving anime! I don’t really keep it a secret when I’m constantly using gifs in my tweets from some of my favourite series. I’ve been a massive fan of anime since around 2006. You can blame Ouran High School Host Club for this! I still have it on DVD and you honestly have to watch it! There are two characters, Hikaru and Kaoru, who remind me so much of the Weasley twins! They’re ginger and they love to cause trouble. Remind you of Gred and Forge? Other faves have to be Cardcaptor Sakura, Chrono Crusade, Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles and Sword Art Online. Believe me, I’d be here all day if I made a list of everything I love to watch but these are the ones that still have me sobbing like a little baby!
Hello. I’m Daisy, I’m 30 years old and I love playing Minecraft. You heard that correctly. I love playing a kids’ game! Since the game came out in my 20s, it came late into my life and I’m pretty certain that I would have played these even in my teens if it had been around then. This game is so addicting! I love the idea of putting some music on and going off to mine for different ores, materials and then creating my own little village! It’s grown up so much over the years with mods, new versions and updates bringing animals, biomes and servers so you can chat with people all over the world! I’ve had a couple of people raise their eyebrow at me when I mentioned how old I was and asked why I was playing something for a kid.
I’ll let you know the answer the day I care. (Ooooh, Daisy burn!)
Not only do I love playing the game, but I also love watching Minecraft Youtubers. There are so many these days but here is a teeny list of those I faithfully watch:
Keeping Up With The Kardashians
This has to be one of the top guilty pleasures around right now! I’m also certain this show is like Marmite. Some people can’t stand this family since they’re everywhere and there are so many in the family and others love them! I actually really enjoy watching the TV show and I used to watch it along with Mum. It used to drive us up the wall with some of the stuff they got up to (Mum didn’t like Kourtney at all!) but it was what drove us to visit Los Angeles a few years ago just so Mum could feel like Kris Jenner for a couple of weeks. I have to say I love Khloe and Kendall because they seem a little different to the others and you can’t deny that it’s super fun to imagine yourself in their place.
If anyone else has heard the Oprah quote ‘I love bread!’, then she is speaking my language! I literally love eating bread to the point that it’s actually pretty scary how many slices I can eat. I think when I was at my heaviest, I ate around 12 slices a day. I KNOW! *hangs head in shame* I still eat a little too much but I’m training myself to eat less. That said, I’m currently eating some gluten free right now. What? I might be intolerant to gluten and still love bread! Guilty pleasures are meant to be loved and make you feel guilty…that’s their whole purpose!
Do you have any guilty pleasures?
(Share in the comments so we can share the pain! Haha!)
