Life of a Blogger: Guilty Pleasures

This is a link up with Novel Heartbeat

This week's topic is: Guilty Pleasures 

When I hear guilty pleasures I usually think of TV shows first. Probably can blame Netflix for that. Two guilty pleasure shows I watch....eep...

Vampire Diaries I actually started watching this show on Netflix because I was tired and just wanted to watch something girly and crappy, something that wouldn't involve much thought process. And I got hooked. Probably, okay definitely, because the Salvatore brothers are so hot. HOT. I've fallen behind on this latest season so NO spoilers here people. And no, I haven't watched the Originals. I am actually incredibly horrible at watching TV consistently. I need Netflix or OnDemand to keep up with anything :/

Oh man. Pretty embarrassed to admit this one. Plus, when I see both shows are about vampires, I look like a crazy. I started watching this one OnDemand and was shocked later to find out it is on NBC, I thought for sure it was an HBO show. While this is definitely not a favorite show, it is easy to get sucked into. I love the back to basics take on vampires. I also love how Dracula isn't completely a bad guy for once. Sure, he is bad, but he has a sad back story and a good reason for his actions....mostly. 

Other guilty pleasures usually involve wine, chocolate, and NAPS!

Can't wait to see what everyone else shares!!

Have you watched either show, or am I the crazy one??


  1. I rarely watch TV, but I must say Dracula sounds fantastic. I did see someone tweeting that the show will be stopped though. Am I wrong?

    Great post, Alyssa!

  3. Yeah it sounds like NBC still hasn't given them the green light. That doesn't mean they still won't!! Hopefully...

  4. I swear I am not as obsessed with Vampires as this post makes me seem!! Lol but I do seem to look like a nut!

  5. I haven't seen either of these >.<
    I kinda want to try the Vampire Diaries though, since everyone raves about it!

  6. I need to catch up on Vampire Diaries, it is delicious!

  7. I heard they just got renewed for another season as well! If anything, the Salvatore brothers are some GREAT eye candy!

  8. Me too! I watched the first few eps and then quickly fell into my standard forgetting to watch TV mode. Have you checked out the Originals at all? I'm interested!!
