I Is For...

A day late and a dollar short...Ah well, I hope you'll stick with me anyway. Poor little Ida could not.

I Is For...Indulge

1. To give free rein to. 2. To gratify one's taste or desire for. Oh hell yeah. This is one of my favorite words in the entire dictionary. If there is one thing yours truly is exceptionally talented at, it is indulging myself. My God, the word even sounds like a tasty treat rolling off your tongue. There is nothing like pampering oneself after a really bad day or even just because. We deserve it.

So how, you may ask, do I indulge my sexy self? Let me count the ways...

Red Velvet Cupcakes Just look at these beauties. Of course, I can only have this treat once in a very, very great while so they have to be so good they're orgasmic.

Foot Massage Aaaaaahhhhhh... I can just feel those magic fingers on my arches. A good foot massage can make me forget I'm even on planet Earth. Just the right touch on my little feet and I am in Heaven with some very sexy angels. ;)

Wine A glass of Moscato makes the world a much better place for me. Many a stoopid (yes, I spelled it with 2 o's) person is still alive because I was able to have a glass or three of this elixir.

Scented Oils There is nothing more relaxing or sexy than a lovely scent wafting through the room. A great scent can transport you to far off, exotic locales when you close your eyes. Some of my very favorites are vanilla, lilac, rose, cinnamon and jasmine. I believe everyone should have diffuser or at least scented candles.

These are but a few of the ways I indulge and pamper myself. I'm getting all warm and shivery just thinking about these things. So what are your favorite indulgences? Come on, talk to me. ;)


  1. I'm pretty sure most of my indulgences are illegal, at least in many conservative southern states, so I won't be answering that question. However. I just have to saw, red velvet cupcakes FTW! And Tarantino would so agree with you about the foot massage bit.

  2. Massages. Hands down, massages :))
    Good wine, good food, good music and of course good movie are also irresistible :)

  3. Super-delicious and awesome-looking, cupcakes, foot massage, wine, scented oils... girl, you know how to spoil :) I want all this in just one day.. and more! :)

  4. poor little Ida, Melsy the way you started with this terrible pics, I'm starting to become afraid for little Easter Bunnies, I can't imagine what can happen to them in this horror saga :)

    Liked the indulging post... and I was once told that my cakes are orgasmic too :)

  5. I could definitely skip the foot massage but the rest sounds really good. In fact, I find myself inspired to go to my local cupcake bakery and indulge on some red velvet cupcakes. Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Better late than never or as I always say, fashionably late!

    I'm all for indulgence. Sweets, wines, massage care; what can be better!? Great 'I'dea for I!

  7. Poor Ida!

    A good book is enough for me. :D

    Thanks for coming by my blog.

  8. @M Naughty indulgences certainly are the best. ;) I wholeheartedly encourage you to go the red velvet cupcakes. They can turn the worst days around. I have no doubt Q would agree on the foot massages.

    @Jaccstev Massages rule don't they? I'm loving your list with the music and movies, too. Those definitely rock my world.

  9. @Nebular George, I tell you indulgence is one area I excel at. I would love to do all of these one day, too. That would be the best day ever. :)

    @Dez LMAO! You know I have a very twisted sense of humor. And I have seen some nefarious things done to Easter bunnies, but I won't put those up. ;)

    You make orgasmic cakes?! Hmmm...You realize you'll be catering my next party. :)

    @MJ I insist you go right now to the bakery and indulge in some red velvet cupcakes. I love to encourage indulgent behavior. ;)

  10. @Matt That's me, fashionably late. I think all of the above would make for one hellagood day. I'm glad you liked my self indulgent post. It's one of my favorite topics.

    @Golden Eagle Good books are an excellent way to indulge and treat yourself. I love nothing better than to pamper myself with a trip to the bookstore or a few hours in my library's reading room. Thanks so much for sharing.

  11. Oh, Melissa, I love this word too!

    Everything (except a foot massage) sounds fabulous. I would not do foot anything! I'm so ticklish I can barely even do my own toenails!

  12. I definitely indulge in foods, especially sweets--not good for me!
    My wife is obsessed with massages and manicures.

  13. @Kimberly I know someone who has the same ticklish problem with her feet. Red velvet cupcakes are a two thumbs up recommendation from me. Try them if you get a chance.

    @Lee Sweets aren't good for me either, so when I get that rare chance, I have to really, really make it count.

  14. I love cheesecake! And a good perfume does wonders to lift my spirit.

  15. Those red velvet cupcakes look DE-LICI-OUS. Also, your cartoons at the beginning of each post are too cute and funny!

  16. @J.L. Aah Cheesecake is scrumptious and a tasty treat I love as well. I agree, there is something so wonderful about a great perfume.

    @NiaRaie Hi! Thank you so much for stopping by. Red velvet cupcakes are awesome and I hope you have had them or will try them soon. They are so worth the calories. And I'm glad you like the Gashleycrumb Tinies, they are a real favorite of mine.
