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)
