Irina's guilty pleasure: "Caviar and expensive Champagne. I feel guilty because they are too expensive."
Brenda's guilty pleasure: "African Clothes. I feel guilty because I don't feel comfortable to wear them here, in Germany, outside of my house."
Cristina's guilty pleasure: "60s (teak) furniture, I feel guilty because I invest too much money in these jewels."
Tatiana's guilty pleasure: "Oreos Biscuits. I feel guilty because I can’t stop eating them."
Anca's guilty pleasure: "Smoking. I feel guilty because I spend money and it’s not healthy."
What is your guilty pleasure?
Mine is a bag of sour cream and onion potato chips. I love it and I treat myself to a bag of it sometimes, even though I know it's very unhealthy.
By definition guilty pleasure is a psychological feeling and it happens when something makes you feel good and gives you pleasure, but on the other hand makes you feel guilty for all types of reasons. The mind-blowing thing is that we all have big or small guilty pleasures, with no regards to age, culture or gender.
So, intrigued by this phenomena, Odeta Catana, a Berlin based photographer created a photo series to illustrate people's guilty pleasures. I love this because it shows we are all human, who love to indulge, even though our indulgences are often not rational. Thoughts?
