Basic blogger problems.

First and foremost I would like to dedicate this blog post to disco pants if you were a blogger or a blog reader way back when (2012 ish to be exact) you may remember this American Apparel OOTD trend. Now that we have set the tone, here are some other blogger problems that you may or may not be aware of. P.s Yes, that is a Starbucks Vanilla Chai latte perched un-safely on my very expensive apple MacBook.
Starbucks Vanilla Chai LatteWhen you have to delete 500 (almost) identical photo’s from your camera roll because you gotta get that flat-lay just right for the gram.

When you genuinely love a product but you have to declare it’s not a sponsored post on your social media channels, you just proper love it and want to share it with the world. However no h8 but disclosure is always very important so if it is paid for then let me hashtag AD that for you.

When you’re about to leave the house, you grab your blogging/vlogging camera, of course, the battery is dead, your memory card just stopped working and the charger is nowhere to be found.

Bloggers love autumn, bloggers do not like seasonal light changes. How are we supposed to take our photos when it’s pitch black come 3:00 pm. Rude.

When you give into the blogger hype and buy that £40 lipstick that is too pretty to use so you Instagram it a couple of times and it dies a death in the back of your makeup drawer. Mariah Carey MAC collection, I’m looking at you.

If you don’t Instagram your Christmas Starbucks cup did it even happen? #christmas #starbs

When you go to an Instagram hot-spot cafe and you non-blogger friend has the audacity to drink her perfectly formed latte and cut into her cupcake before you’ve got the perfect flat-lay shot and you have to resist having a total bitchfit in public.

When you share your opinion on twitter and accidentally get sucked into some serious twitter beef.

When you try and get techy at 1:00 am doing some simple blog template tweaks and end up breaking your entire website.

The red parcel slips of doom. If you know, you know.

When you’re on first name terms with your local DPD, Hermes and Yodel drivers and you have no shame answering the door in your Pj’s, a face mask and a 3-day old top-knot it’s nothing they haven’t seen before.

When you get an email addressed to ‘Hello Milk’ (Yes, really.)

When you sign off work / PR emails with a smiley face and two kisses because you don’t want to come across like a cold-hearted bitch. šŸ™‚ xx

That time we all went through that rose gold, copper and marble phase. (still love you Micheal kors watch)

But how will you know when it’s peony season? Oh trust me you’ll know.

Every time a blogger is referred to as an influencer a fairy dies.

FYI – this post was light hearted incase you couldn’t already tell. I just thought as fellow bloggers and blog readers you may find this funny. Leave a comment telling me a classic blogger cliche in the comments!

    This is definitley my favourite light hearted blog post I’ve read in a while. Everything you mentioned is so relatable! Can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve almost broken my entire website, you’d think I’d learn by now!

    Can we add, still nursing the ankle damage we all did with our Litas (and knock-offs) phase. What the fuck were we thinking?

    I hate autumnal lighting but I love the season. The best perk is definitely the candles and all their gorgeous autumn scents!

    Haha yes I can relate to so many of these! I’ve definitely had that scenario of trying to do a ‘quick’ tweak to my blog template and the whole thing disappearing/going all over the place – don’t think I’ve ever cried quite as much as then! I also get the strange emails, but mine usually say ‘Hello Cat’ or ‘Hello Jaffa’ – yep, because of course, that is my name!

    I totally relate to this post. Especially deleting literally 500 pictures that I took for one blog post. Thanks for sharing. P.s I love your blog.
