The Beauty Spotlight Team introduces Guilty Pleasures

beauty spotlight team Marcia guilty pleasures

Welcome to our new Beauty Spotlight Team series: GUILTY PLEASURES. The Modus Operandi of the Beauty Spotlight Team is to do alternate weeks with links of posts we think you’ll enjoy and the next week to be a special series. After much brainstorming we decided to let you in on some of our secrets, aka Guilty Pleasures. Someone had to go first so I volunteered (actually they twisted my arm and it still hurts). Here is Marcia from Beauty Info Zone and her guilty pleasures!

NUMBER 1 isn’t a secret if you read Beauty Info Zone. It’s my love of eyeshadows in singles and palettes. I’m obsessed with them. So why is this a guilty pleasure you ask? Because I don’t blog about most of them. I buy them, use them (or often forget about them) but I absolutely hate to take swatch pictures so I don’t share with you. Well today I have 20 palettes that I’ve bought over the last 18 months or so that I’ve never blogged about. I didn’t count how many actual shadows there are but you can see by some of my pictures that there are a lot!

This isn’t all I’ve bought and not shared but it’s 90%. This is a guilty pleasure which I doubt I’ll stop for a very long time.

NUMBER 2 is my love of solitaire and crossword puzzles on my computer and iPad. I’m obsessed with both. I learned the game of Solitaire from my mom since she’d sit at our kitchen counter playing it for hours. Even when she was in declining health she had that ratty old deck of cards and played. She also loved crossword puzzles but she never understood the computer so she had subscriptions to crossword magazines. The reason these are guilty pleasures is that I spend so much time doing them and ignoring other things. I’m a procrastinator and these two things are how I procrastinate.

NUMBER 3 has to do with what TV shows I’ll follow and only tell a few people. Now here I am blabbing it to my friends and family and readers. Well I love The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. I haven’t watched every single season but once I get sucked into it, I just can’t stop. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is another guilty pleasure. I’ve never watched the others more than a few times but Beverly Hills is wonderful – I get all my aggressions out hating on Brandi etc.

NUMBER 4 is candy. CANDY. c.a.n.d.y. candy. I am a chocoholic and a candyholic. I crave it. Growing up we had a candy cupboard that everyone knew about. Our friends would come over and ask what was in the candy cupboard. This guilty pleasure was forced on me by my parents. And the interesting thing is that not only do I have a candy cupboard but so do my siblings. They know where to look at my house and I know where to look at theirs. It’s genetic so I shouldn’t feel guilty! So what do I like?butterfingerhershey_twizzlers_strawberry_16oz

And the list goes on and on. Don’t get me started on things like brownies, chocolate chip cookies, hot fudge sundaes. Oh I’m in trouble now!

NUMBER 5 is just a pleasure and not one I feel guilty about. It’s buying toys and books for my precious grandchildren. Nate is 4 and Talia is 20 months and there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for them. I can’t resist buying new things for them even though I know it’s my company they should crave. But those smiles of delight when they open something new is worth it all. As is typical I have a million pictures of my grandson and few of my second grandchild.

Now that I’ve spilled the beans which of these are you guilty of also? I’m sure there are a few that will feel familiar. — Marcia

    Thanks Lola. I didn’t have a more recent picture on my computer and I was too lazy to go get my phone. He’s such a happy boy and has the best sense of humor.

  3. Hahaha loved reading this post! 🙂 we have very similar guilty pleasures! Palettes, candy, the bachelor/the bachelorette (Ben was my favorite too… 🙁 so sad he was eliminated) and not with my grandson cause I’m only 19… But my nephew! Haha 🙂
    Hope you have a great weekend!

  4. I have a lot of the same guilty pleasures! Your eyeshadow collection is impressive!

    Jesse, I’m glad I’m not alone in my guilty pleasures. My most guilty is my unused shadows, my least guilty is spoiling my grandkids.

  6. Hey Marcia, thanks so much for sharing! This is a fun read 🙂 I definitely share some of these as well, although I am really bad at both crosswords and cards LOL

  7. I’m guilty of the candy stash (I always have candy in the house) and eyeshadow collecting too. I have eyeshadows I haven’t used and three palettes (Sephora Hello Kitty 40th anniversary and the Graffiti one and the Cargo tea inspired) which are untouched. I got the palettes for their pretty packaging!

  8. Nataile Brown says:

    Oh wow, yeah, eye shadow. It’s certainly one of my top guilty pleasures. I recognize so many of these palettes. So much fun though and it’s hard to stay away from all the pretty colors. Thanks for your confession. 🙂

  9. This was so fun to read, I don’t know if I’d have the guts to share some of my guilty pleasures, lol. I spy a few eyeshadow palettes we have in common.

  10. I’m a total eyeshadow hoarder as well! I think you have two kinds of beauty lovers: lipstick lovers and eyeshadow lovers. And I am definitely the latter 🙂

  11. What a fabulous list of guilty pleasures! I’m totally impressed with you buying 20 shadow palettes in 18 months. They’re hard to resist! And I looooove the photo of your grandson. What a cutie!

  12. Eyeshadows are my favorite too!

  13. What a great post! I love reading about your guilty pleasures. Your grandson is beautiful.

  14. Guilty pleasures!! Love it! Mine is definitely frozen yogurt with chocolate chips and mochi! <3 And, great picks! <3

  15. I am on palette porn overload! I want to buy all the things!! I also do crosswords and not on my phone. I’m with you, girl!

  16. Eye shadows are my makeup downfall. I see new shadows and palettes and I want all of them. My TV guilty pleasure is reality TV. And snacks? popcorn, baby! I can eat myself into a coma crunching on popcorn.

  17. I spy so many amazing eyeshadow palettes! Oh, and I’m a Real Housewives fan too, I love NYC, NJ, OC and BH!

  18. Thank you so much for sharing your guilty pleasures! I’m definitely an ice cream / cake girl, so I can relate to your candy fiending!

  19. I really like crossword puzzles too!

  20. You and I share an obsession with eyeshadows, but you already know that! I too am obsessed with some reality TV.

  21. I love reading your guilty pleasures. Not surprised w/ #1 tho, lol.

  22. Makeup is definitely my #1 guilty pleasure 🙂

  23. Nate has gotten so big! (wasn’t it just yesterday he was born, omg!) I am definitely wishing I could come play and swatch in your eyeshadow swatch haha!! That’s too cute about your siblings all having a candy cupboard too. 🙂

  24. Eyeshadow palettes are my guilty pleasure, too! I have sooo many, but I still want all the new ones. I love the combinations of colors!

  25. Barbie Y says:

    Fun to read! I share a lot of the same guilty pleasures (especially candy!). The palettes look amazing!

  26. I totally hoard shadow palettes and singles too. There’s just something about trying them that’s so addicting!

  27. I love eye shadow palettes, one of my guilty pleasures for sure. 😀 I would Shemar Moore listed in that bunch as well as a big tub of chocolate chip ice cream:D

  28. I can relate to eyeshadows and candy too. I love your shadow collection!
