Countdown to Christmas 11- JYC - guilty pleasures

Completely off prompt again.......but I was thinking about one of my guilty pleasures favourite things about this time of year........magazines.......oh yes.......I'm a real magazine addict.......most of the year this addiction is kept under control.......but come Nov/Dec I just can't resist all the 'christmasy' magazines.....be they craft ones, cookery ones, home decor ones......just looking at the covers make me want to buy them......and I spend far too much money buying them at a time of year that I have more important things to buy.......so it's probably a good thing I buy/make most of my christmas gifts before December!!!
Do you have a guilty pleasure at this time of year??

Guilty pleasure resulting in a fab page Jacky - really great idea. I seldom buy magazines outside of my subscription ones but ....... I might start!

My guilty pleasure is allowing myself to eat chocolate and nuts more than I should - but strangely enough, I'm ALWAYS sorry in January! go figure

Hi Jacky I am exactly the same I bought 3 magazines the other week, one was Jamie Olivers Christmas cooking one so I gave it to my husband as he cooks the Chrimbo dinner so I didn't feel quite as guilty! Great page and I love the little stocking!

Oooh, me too! I love Christmas magazines and usually buy way more than I should. I usually buy a Christmas book too, but now you have reminded me, I haven't done either this year. Mmmm ... might have to rectify that! I do indulge a little in sweet things I don't usually eat, the odd mince pie (or 10) with DH's homemade brandy butter. x

Oh,yes! Magazines are my weakness too

That's fab, Jacky :) Yes, I love my mags too - especially 'food' ones!

Amy said...

Food mags are really the only ones I like, or, home decorating ones but I have found the internet is better for inspiration in that department ... at this time of the year I would say that there is general over consumption of alcohol and food!

Mags are SO expensive here...I very rarely buy them!

Great post! It is so, so true! We have a great magazine called Sunset (about the Western U.S.), and the Christmas issue is soooo much fun.

I have really stopped buying magazines, i have bought a few christmassy ones to help with cardmaking, other than that i find I just do not have time to sit down and read them :) Guilty pleasures.... I would have to say the specialty coffees at Starbucks have my attention ;)

That's a great page and idea! Your album is coming along wonderfully. :) Guilty pleasures? So busy don't have time to think about pleasure, let alone guilt!

I'm also a fan of Christmas issues, but this year I've resisted since I have too much to do to give them the time they deserve.
