Mummy’s Guilty Pleasures Bloggers Tag

My gorgeous friend Kaz from Ickle Pickles Life and Travels has kicked off a fantastic new bloggers tag called Mummy’s Guilty Pleasures.  It sounded so much fun that I literally couldn’t wait to join in.

In case you are not in the know a ‘tag’ is where we set a bunch of questions and ask our blogging friends to answer them. It’s a lovely chance for you to get to know us a little bit better and we learn a little more about each other as bloggers too.

I hadn’t realised quite how many guilty pleasures I had before I started writing this post, but it turns out there are quite a few.  Are there any you can relate too?

If you are a blogger and want to take part then hop on board the guilty train, we’d love to see your posts.  All the questions are below and the answers should be people or things that you secretly love, but rarely own up to for whatever reason.

Who is your guilty pleasure musical artist?

I’m ashamed to admit I quite like Little Mix and Ariana Grande.  This is what comes of having a 5 year old influence your music tastes.

What is your guilty pleasure song?

One Last Time and Shout Out To My Ex (see above).

Who is your guilty pleasure TV star?

Tom Ellis in Lucifer.

What is your guilty pleasure TV show?

Hollyoaks, but I’m pleased to say that I don’t watch it as much as I used to.

Who is your guilty pleasure film actor/actress?

It will always be Hugh Jackman in pretty much anything.

What is your guilty pleasure film?


What is your guilty pleasure meal?

Fish with chips and mushy peas, from the shop of course.

What is your guilty pleasure snack?

Chocolate in all it’s guises.

What is your guilty pleasure drink?

It would have to be a latte.  I try not to have too many but every now and again it hits the spot.

What is your guilty pleasure book or magazine?

My favourite magazine is Psychologies.  I have a subscription but don’t get the time to read every issue which is so annoying.

If you would like to take part, just tag me (@zenas_suitcase) and Kaz (@icklepicklex) on Twitter and use the #mummysguiltypleasures so we can pop over to have a read, and share your post too.  I can’t wait to read about all your secrets!

I’m tagging these bloggers to take part, but anyone is welcome to join in:

Kara from Chelsea Mamma

Deborah from Country Heart and Home

Karen from Really Missing Sleep

Laura from Dear Bear and Beany

Laura from Musings of a Tired Mummy

    Just realised I have a music related guilty pleasure.
    I’m not really a great fan of Morrissey however I can’t get enough of listening to his recent song “Spent the day in bed” – if only I could…ha ha ha

    I am a single dad but I think I might have the same guilty pleasures as you! Are you planning to update this article soon?
