Indulgences...The Small Pleasures In Life
I confess, I have some self-indulgences, and no regrets about it. Everyone needs the occasional indulgence. I think my indulgences are simple, not too pricey, and oh so pleasing. Here is my list of indulgences. How do you self-indulge? Is it guilt-free? Is it worth it?
Flowers - Fresh flowers are a must have in my home. I buy fresh flowers every week for the kitchen island, the family room, and the master bedroom. Lilies and tulips are my favorite, but I will also mix it up with seasonal flowers. Like right now I have fall bouquets throughout the house with mums, carnations, and lucky me, beautiful yellow and orange lilies.
Cookware - Le Creuset is my cookware of choice. It is pricey but I love to cook and it is so worth it. Le Creuset is quality, heavy, cast iron cookware that I see myself passing on to my daughters who also like to cook. The cookware comes in great colors. I prefer the caribbean blue. I also splurged on some great bakeware from William Sonoma. Awesome products!
Beauty - Now that I am in my early forties, my self-awareness in regards to aging is on high alert. I have always taken pretty good care of my skin, but I have bounced around from products. Well I have finally found the skin care and make-up line that I think works best for me, and that is Estee Lauder. Estee Lauder is also very pricey but worth it to me. I also get regular facials and pedicures but these are so relaxing, almost therapeutic.
Hikes - Hikes or walks, call it what you will, I enjoy them. I like to get up early on Saturday and Sunday mornings and go for about 2 hours if I can. It clears my mind, and get those endorphins going. This one is probably the best indulgence of them all.
My indulgences are simple, yet so rewarding and fulfilling for me. What are your indulgences? How do you treat yourself?
