Things I Hate That You Love

In the overly optimistic Zoella-esque blogging world, I would start this 2 post series off with the ‘Things I Love That You Hate’ list. Sadly, I’m just way too negative for that. So after witnessing what my fellow youth of today are fangirling over, and having been inspired by my new fave film (10 Things I Hate About You) I thought I’d compile my feelings towards the world’s current faves.

Autumn: For me, autumn’s that quarter on a four seasons pizza that you eat simply because you don’t want to leave any takeaway evidence in the bin. Don’t get me wrong the leaves turn a pretty colour and I’m literally counting down the degrees until I can get back into tights again, but I’d rather fast forward the super dark evenings, PSL and Halloween.

Halloween: Yep, you heard right, I really don’t like Halloween (which is weird because I find any excuse to celebrate anything). Every year I carve my pumpkin- not a euphemism- watch a load of Halloween hauls and start wearing 30% more black than normal, but none of this seems to fill the Scrooge-like hole inside of me. 

NARS Names: Maybe NARS products are bought by people just years more mature than me because I seem to be the only one who’s mildly unnerved by the intensity of their names. So, mid-chai-tea-latte-sip, I’ll ask a friend ‘Ooh where’s your lipstick from?’ and instead of the expected ‘It’s Really Red by someone like Rimmel’ they’ll burst into ‘My lipstick? It’s actually the NARS Lipsdick in the shade Orgasmic Nirvana and I’ve teamed it with my NARS Seductive Striptease bronzer and Lustful Cum NARS brows!’ To which my drink is now spat halfway across the table because I’m convinced she’s started narrating a porno. I’m all for taboos but can they just chill a lil bit pls?

The Breakfast Club: I tried really hard to like this film- after hearing Anna Kendrick basically sing the soundtrack (yes I watched it via Pitch Perfect I’m clearly a slave to Universal Pictures) I thought I’d love it- but I just found it really dull. Sorry Simple Minds, but I have well and truly forgotten about that you.

Kylie Lip Kits: I have no idea what Kylie’s products are like or how much effort she puts into them (the sound of coughing in the distance), that side of her business isn’t what I have a problem with. What angers me is the amount of people who end up empty handed because she only has like 10 units of stock or, worse, eventually get their hands on a lip kit (already £22) only to find out shipping is £20 and import tax is another £30. Almost £100 for a lipstick n liner? There is some serious consumerism going on there. If you know that there’ll be global interest then make the effort to make your company more world-friendly yknow?

Cats: I genuinely feel like the only blogger without a cat. While they have grown on me recently (probs because my best friend snapchats me at least four times a day with videos of hers being cute) as a rule of thumb I’m not a fan. It’s just the claws-digging-into-my-brand-new-culotte-jumpsuit thing that I can’t deal with- like is that affectionate or are you simultaneously trying to kill me and my wardrobe? I can never tell.

Bullet Journals: Maybe they’re one of those ‘you have to have one to understand’ trends but I just don’t get bullet journals (definitely wasn’t getting them confused with Nutribullets until about 3 months ago…) I have a planner, I like my planner, I use my planner on a daily basis so what’s different about a bullet journal? Or more importantly, how does anyone with a bullet journal ever get anything done? I’d probs spend more time making it look grammable than actually ticking things off lol.

Snapchat Filters: I kind of have to take this one back now because there’s this filter atm that makes your skin look as clear as a Proactiv advert. I’ve entered the filter game lads, wish me luck on my journey.

So Teamales, what do you hate that everyone else loves? If you agreed with anything in this list then please comment below so we can bond over our weirdness at not being a fan. (Next week’s post is the positive one btw so if you’re left thinking I need a slap then give it 7 days… xo)

    Hey Jess It seems you and I have quite a lot in common apart from Halloween which has always been celebrated more than bonfire night up here. Well it’s a Scottish and Irish tradition to do with the start of the Celtic winter.

    Of course that wasn’t the only reason I enjoyed it as much as I did, for more years than I care to forget it was the only day of the year I could be my real self.

    I also wondered that about bullet journal, it looks like people spend hours drawing patterns and planing layout of it to plan their weekly calendar…is that really efficient? i like having a planner but don’t think i can ever do it with such dedication :p plus all those colour pencils, inks and tapes are definitely not budget friendly 💸

      Haha omg I agree, like I’d love to have time to sit and do an arty journal but I’m so busy doing the actual work that unfortunately I just don’t. I also wish I had money for super cute tape too :((

    Haha! I loved this post.
    NARS, oh god, I can’t deal with them. And I completely agree with the cat thing; I feel like I have to get one just to be a ‘real blogger’ (I kid).
    Autumn is my love, but winter is by perfection- give me rain, cold and dark nights.

    I love reading these posts. x

      Yas- Winter is kewl because it knows who it wants to be. It’s cold, dark and Christmassy whereas my problem with autumn is that everyday I have to work out if I should wear a coat? Bring an umbrella? Tights? Ft avoiding trick or treaters because I want to eat all the sweets myself.
      Also tbh I wish having a cat made you a real blogger because then I’d stop putting all this effort in and just go buy one xo
      Thank you for the love xx

    Cars. WTF? They’re like chiahuahuas but with added contempt. But what really gets me is giant pandas. Hugely expensive picky eaters who never move and are bad at sex – I might as well queue up to watch my ex-boyfriend in a zoo. If they weren’t fetchingly monochromatic we’d be sticking them in a much crapper section of the zoo.

      Genuinely shared this comment with pretty much everyone I know because I laughed so hard. What makes me sad about pandas is that they’re so misleading like I WANNA SQUISH YOU but no they’d probably mistake me for a piece of bamboo and attempt to eat me. I’m team zebra tbh. Wins my monochrome award every time. Thank you for reading x

      1) and 2) GO AWAY YOU I knew you’d comment saying you loved them. And I would forgive you. But you thought I’d be a cat person?? OMG friendship over team dog all the way. Espesh Molly because she’s fluffy.
      Lol because I thought bullet journals were legit everywhere? Maybe they haven’t made it Bristol yet (you’re probs still on your tamigotchis)? Or maybe my feed is just full of them because I hate them so people want to spite me.
      I like Snapchat but I’m always super wary of the mysterious server that mediates between you and the person your sending to. Like do they view my snaps? Save them? Will they resurface in 20 years when I’m going to a job interview? WHERE DO THEY GO AFTER 10 SECS. Scared.
      Thanks for reading bb xo I still love you a bit

I believe electricity is next on our list 🙂 also no, pls don’t scare me with those thoughts relating the snaps end destination, imagine if at the end of ur life they all got played back to you LOL I’d die (although it would be the end of my life anyway so quite apt really) you’re welcome bb, still love u loads xxxxxxxxxxx

    I’m with you on so many of these, but personally I love autumn and I love cats, haha. I’ve never seen The Breakfast Club tho so I can’t comment on that yet. As for the rest – NARS I agree with, sometimes it’s a little much! Kylie Lip Kits are waaaay overhyped, I’ve never tried them but the price is ridiculous, like you say, and I’ve heard so many things about damaged products or missing products, and their customer service sounds awful. I can’t get behind that! I’m not sure I understand what Bullet Journals are, still, they always look to me like ‘to do’ lists? They’re defo not for me, anyway.

      Literally got so annoyed with Kylie because I dedicate half a blog post about how much I hate her products and then she makes one which donates the profits to charity aka now I feel like a terrible human. Oh well. Let’s pretend that didn’t happen.
      As for bullet journals dammit I thought you could be the one to explain them to me! Now I’m forever clueless. I’ll stick to lists on post it notes methinks xo

    NARS color names are hilarious. I only own their blush in Orgasm (love it for the color, not the name!). Kylie lip kits are so overhyped. I won’t go out of my way to buy one, but I’ll accept it if it’s gifted. I’m allergic to cats so they’re not something I’d like to be around unless the area is well ventilated.

      Haha I agree, if someone gives me a lip kit I will not complain but buying one myself is a no go purchase. Allergic to cats? That’s like a double reason not to be near them (also a pretty good excuse if you ask me) Thank you for commenting!! X

    Hahah nice post! I agree with the Kylie lipkits thing, I mean they seem really nice and all – but I’m not paying so much for a damn lipstick. I don’t even have a cat – I guess I’m more of a hamster person, they’re nice n quiet n low maintenance, if you know what I mean, lol. All my friends have bunnies – although none of them are bloggers, lol. I don’t even know what a bullet journal is – I definitely like my planner. I do, however, love Autumn and Halloween! (although I’m a total WHIMP for scary films). And snapchat filters – well, they just sort of grow on you, don’t they? (especially when you’re bored or being inconveniently distracted).

      Are we essentially the same person? (Except from the Halloween bit ew b get your gross autumn vibez away from me pronto) (jk jk lots of love) Literally though, waiting 40 minutes at a bus stop has forced me to turn to snapchat for companionship and it’s doing a pretty good job atm. Obviously, a bunny would be better. Bunny filter could be the next big thing perhaps? But don’t get me started on hamsters, I love that zorbing thing they do but I cannot spell their name for the life of me: hampster? hamsta? hamnster? No idea. Thanks for reading sugarplum xo

        Hahaha we basically are.. although I agree with you on the long dark days – I’m not always a huge fan. Seeing daylight once in a while is nice. LOL.
        hahahahah ohhhh man tell me about it! The looks I get from people at bus stops when using snapchat is hilarious. xD YAS bunniesss! Although I think there is a filter for bunnies! Hamster filter would be cool, too, I think. xD

    haha! I love the realness of this post, gurrrrrrrrrrrl! I have a Kylie Lip Kit and I was broke for weeks after buying it (the custom charges were quite a lot but I still didn’t pay as much as other did since it was bought and sent to me by another person and they handled it instead of their official team as they don’t ship directly to Pakistan). I RLLY like the shades of her kits but my next kit is probably gonna be a gift from someone cos I AM NOT BUYING IT WITH MY OWN MONEY EVER AGAIN.
    I don’t have a cat or a pet for that matter. High five!

      Cheeky Kylie life hacks going on right there- you should start up some underground economy selling them second hand, you could be as rich as Kylie in no time (if you can actually get your hands on the kits in the first place) Team No Pet over here too, although I spend my life googling cute puppies so it FEELS like I have a pet yknow?
