Life’s little indulgences

As I write this, I am waiting for the carpet cleaners to arrive. You know you are an adult when you are excited about having the carpets professionally cleaned. This has got me thinking about life’s other little indulgences. Maybe it’s splurging on the good chocolate you only find at specialty stores. Sometimes it’s a bubble bar from Lush. Oftentimes it’s a cup of teaย and an hour or two of Netflix.

You know you are an adult when you are excited about having the carpets professionally cleaned. Now, I'm thinking about life's other little indulgences.

Here are some ideas for embracing life’s little indulgences…

Treat yourself to new underwear. (A Cup of Jo recommends stocking up on black.)

Spend 20 minutes listening to music while doing a face mask.

Give a meal service a try. (Here are my thoughts on HelloFresh.)

Brighten your living space with a new chandelier. (I love this one from Pottery Barn.)

Throw out your ratty pajamas and upgrade your loungewear. (I can’t stop raving about the joggers and pullover I got at Target.)

Gather your family and take a walk in the park. This is great to do after eating a big lunch.

Sign up for a cooking or art class and learn something new.

Stock up on aloe socks to keep your feet warm and soft. (I really like these.)

What are your favorite little indulgences?

  1. LOL I would also be VERY excited for a professional carpet cleaning. ๐Ÿ™‚ These all do sound like wonderful indulgences–I need to upgrade my PJs for sure!

  2. Hahaha too true, my coworker and I fell over once at one of Fat Jewish’s posting on IG you know your old when you get excited over a new sponge. We just fell on the floor laughing, not sure why we found as funny as we did.

    And in fact I am heading out for a walk when I am done writing this and following up with other comments.

  3. Great post! I love buying new underwear – always feels like a treat ๐Ÿ™‚
    For me a cup of tea while reading is a simple indulgence but it improves a stressful day in seconds!
    Have a wonderful week.

  4. Ohh aloe socks!? Love these little indulgences! And you’re so right… oftentimes it is just a cup of tea and an hour or two of Netflix.
