top five guilty pleasures  
my top five!

i. cupcakes

i just love them. all different kinds, except strawberry. my mission is to try all kinds of different flavors... but sometimes good old vanilla and chocolate are the way to go. (unless there's red velvet involved.)

ii. cigarettes

i'm not smoking as much now, especially because it's summer and the air is so heavy it's actually gross to smoke... but it is still certainly a guilty pleasure.

iii. gossip girl

i just love it. do not ask me, okay. i didn't start out loving it but i got so into the last half of it. it's a lot of fun.

iv. skinny bitch

kind of ironic that this is on the same list as cupcakes but man, i love this book. it's great. it's seriously the answer for everybody who wants to lose weight or change to a healthier lifestyle, i swear to god. that's what i like about it. it's not just some stupid "go on this diet and you'll lose twenty pounds in two weeks!" it's like hi, you're not retarded, make some smart shifts and you'll not only feel better but ACTUALLY lose weight. i don't even care about weight loss because i don't need to, but i care about nutrition and health. and this book has a lot of answers and a ton of shit i didn't know.

um okay that ended up being kind of a major plug. hm.

v. collecting fashion magazines

my collection of magazines is ridiculous. they keep accumulating and i need to get rid of some of them i'm sure. i just love having them and i usually keep ones with the intention of scanning the images or using them in collages or something. i just can't throw out a good photoshoot or editorial. i seriously just can't.

and a bonus one, just because i think this must be the guilty pleasure of a lot of people and i am deeefinitely included:

haha good! it's a pretty great book. and taking it with a grain of salt is always a good idea obv. but they've got some pretty smart suggestions. or more like cursing, angry, bitchy, smart suggestions. sometimes you just need someone to tell it like it is.

I KNOW RIGHT. i'm incapable of making anything really besides the boxed betty crocker type of deal and i don't even know if i do that well... actually i'm sure if i actually paid attention and put in some effort i could follow a recipe pretty accurately. but that means time. and i don't like waiting for things, gosh.
