+Going to bed with wet hair.
+Buying toiletries in bulk ostensibly to appear to be a prepared adult but principally in order to line them up in neat rows in the cabinet.
+Falling asleep with the TV on.
+”Accidentally” eating the fatty bits of pork or steak.
+When plans fall through.
+Apple juice (“but it’s just sugar!”).
+Any and all fruit candy — including and especially Now&Laters, aka cavity-inducing, tooth-cap-removing industrial runoff.
What are your guilty pleasures?

Post-Scripts: Currently on My Shortlist.
+I am jonesing for a pair of Rothys. I posted something about these cool shoes on Instastory after a friend raved about them a few days back and had dozens of responses urgently singing the praises of these wunderkind shoes (so comfortable! made from plastic bottles!). I’m toying between these lemondrop ones and these camo ones.
+I am drooling over this evening dress — and this one, too, which shares a similar ethos. (Get the look for less with this!) Mr. Magpie and I just bought tickets to the opera and I am wondering whether this date qualifies as a reason to buy a new gown. The last time we went, there were people dressed in black tie! (And also people dressed in jeans. I prefer the former.)
+Down to the last dregs of my Glossier Boy Brow. I like the Glossier product but does anyone else feel like it contains about .00001 milliliters of product? I swear I swipe the wand for a week and it’s dried out. I think I’m going to give this well-reviewed Dior stuff a whirl. It’s twice as expensive as Glossier’s product, but probably fifteen times as long-lasting.
+I love a good cape for fall — especially for snuggling on the couch while Mr. Magpie watches football. This is a classic.
+Visiting D.C. reminded me how much I love my hometown.
+I’m on the prowl for a new pair of winter pajamas. Though I absolutely love my J. Crew dreamy pajamas — incredible soft and forgiving, and I own them in two colors — I am curious whether there are other must-try options I’ve not yet considered. I’ve been intrigued by Lake Pajamas for years (eyeing this new style) but never taken the plunge, and recently spotted these from the label Maison du Soir on a blogger and thought they looked chic. I’m also intrigued by these washable silk sleep sets from Lunya, which are apparently FDA-approved to promote better sleep (?!) — or, better yet, these ultra-soft “restore” shorts that look like a little slice of heaven. Any strong endorsements?
+Remember when I mentioned the cult-following brand I Love Mr. Mittens and their gorgeous chunky knits the other day? Found a lookalike for those of us not willing to break the bank on a trendy look. (CAVEAT ADDED AFTER ORIGINAL PUBLICATION: One reader has noted that the lookalike does not hold up well! Buyer beware…thanks, Betsie!)
+OMG. Love everything about this blazer. “The fur cuffs are a bit much,” you might say. And I might nod along. But then again – what is fashion for? Love.
+I want to layer this oatmeal-colored turtleneck under everything.
+Intrigued by this nut-free granola butter. I’ve noticed that many of the preschools do not permit any nuts on their premises, and mini has about two or three meals centered around peanut butter a week…! I’ve heard good things about this brand.
