Addictively Craving

I have come to the conclusion that I have an addictive personality. Actually, I think I have come to this conclusion several times before, but I really only now truly feel ready to accept it.

I honesty find it so very difficult to refrain from indulging in all the things I love. My addiction definitely ranges between all things delectably delicious right through to non edible but still soul satisfying things.

I have been fighting against my insatiable craving for all things chocolate and have actually been doing very well!! πŸ™‚ I have had some chocolate, but not every day, and not for breakfast ;).

This last week I have been craving anything containing some form of processed sugar cane and cocoa beans…. Sigh…. Chocolate mouse filled with microscopic bubbles of air making it smooth and foamy. I love the feeling of gliding my spoon through the firm yet unbelievably soft decadence, feeling my lips envelop the yummyness, tasting the deeply satisfying sensation of chocolate deliciousness. Yummm

I also crave caramel treat.. I did have some left over after filling a cake, but that little bit just made me want more! Lots more, gloriously golden sweet spoonfulls of pleasure.

Another thought consuming deliciousness that I desperately want is cinnabons. I had one for lunch the other day, but still want more gloriously soul satisfying deliciousness … Cinnamon combined with a soft doughyness, topped with melt-in-the-mouth cream cheese icing. BIG sigh!!

So reflecting on all my recent cravings I have come to the conclusion that I’m undoubtedly addicted… To anything that makes my mouth tingle with delight and awakens all the sensations within my taste buds that scream out with pleasure whenever they come into contact with anything delectable.

Sigh… So whilst my last block of chocolate melts away in my mouth, I feel satisfied with my acknowledgment of my addictions. After all, isn’t the first step to recovery admitting you are addicted? πŸ˜‰


Sensual Satisfying

Fill a bath with steamy hot water, add a few bubbles, light a few candles and instantly you feel blissfully happy. Well at least that is the effect it has on me. I must just add that some wonderfully glorious vanilla shimmering bath salts and gloriously delicious chocolate bath wash definitely adds more bliss to the experience! I love taking a long soak in a steamy hot bath that leaves my skin tingly and feeling vibrantly alive.

There are scientific facts stating the benefits of taking a bath, baths seem to temporarily stimulate blood circulation and may help to reduce swelling and pain. It also helps you relax if you’re anxious or tense. The drop in body temperature after the bath may help those who can’t sleep.

Your skin will undoubtedly thank you. Bathing in warm water opens up pores and cleanses your skin from the inside out, leaving you soft and supple. Bathing actually lowers blood pressure. Your body will relax and your mind has a chance to wander, leaving the stress of the day behind and filling itself with relaxing sensual thoughts. You’ll also smell fantastically fabulous!! You will also finally have some time alone. You can literally close the door on the outside world and disappear.

Who wouldn’t like to indulge in any one of these wonderful benefits, and besides, It’s wonderfully sensual. Add a few vanilla and chocolate scented candles and it makes a perfect treat!

I love that lovely flush I get from all that steam and warmth, and with a fabulously rich and soothing chocolate body butter to rub onto my skin afterwards. I feel deliciously happy, shimmering and smelling nice enough to lick myself πŸ˜‰ lol

Hope you all go and enjoy a soothing, steamingly delicious and relaxing bath to kick off your week!

And so it begins…

The above words are going to dictate my year in every fabulous way πŸ™‚

January is fast becoming a memory as February creeps nearer. With a wonderful christmas and new year leaving us with blissful memories, we enter the new year with new lists and hopes, aspirations or in some cases I suppose anxiety and stress. In the end it really comes down to how you perceive things and how you choose to feel about it as well.

This year I made no new year’s resolution lists, I refuse to put things on paper that will leave me with regret when I’m unable to tick them off the list. I won’t feel like a failure when I don’t reach specific goals and won’t feel guilty when I eat mountains of chocolate after I said that I wouldn’t πŸ˜‰
After all, life is for living!

I must say the year has kicked off well. I have embraced my frizzy not-curly-but-stupidly-wavy-hair and have let it go astray giving my straightner a well deserved break. My daughter did say that my hair looks weird and there is no doubt in my mind that it is so not a sexy look, but I couldn’t care less.

I have allowed myself some sun, which I never do, and have realized that just like golden fried chicken, my fat also looks better a little more on the bronzed side. I am ridding myself of things that get me down and I’m trying to not control everything! The latter is quite hard to do, but I do feel less stressed just by attempting it.

I have left the house messy and instead sat outside with hubby having a glass of wine. I hardly ever drink, and never over do it, but I must admit I enjoyed a recent visit with a family member and over indulged a slight bit. I thoroughly enjoyed the company and conversation and it was great letting go a bit.

I always feel that I want to say something or do something but never do… That is yet another thing I am definitely changing. I want to spontaneously do things and not worry over what people would think or say. Feeling empowered is truly a great feeling. I often think that in being so considerate towards other people’s views and opinions and feelings that I leave myself at the very shortest end of the rope, and it does seem selfish I suppose, but I’m pulling very hard to make my side just about as long as everybody else’s.

I’m going to paint more, be more expressive of my feelings, be more assertive, and be more indulgent in all things glorious!

This year is going to be a fabulous one! I can feel it! And on the days when I am doubtful of this I’ll just go to the shop and buy some chocolate! Nothing like the soft, lusciously deliciousness of chocolate to fix a doubtful mind!
