I don’t know whether it was the massive tomboy stage I went through as a child, or the fact that I work on a team of all guys, but sometimes I feel like I really fail as a girl.
This is weird, because I have a lot of girlish tendencies, but I guess no one’s perfect, and what’s the point of having imperfections if you can’t take the mick out of yourself for them, right?
I ladder 99% of tights on their first wear
I’ve actually given up buying nice tights, because I can guarantee the second I drop £10 on a pair they’ll get a ladder just looking at me.
I can’t do heels
I get major green monster syndrome when I see people kicking butt in heels all day without the need for blister plasters or 3 days of recovery afterwards!
I never buy perfume
It kinda just feels like an unnecessary expense, especially seeing as I work somewhere that I can only describe as dirty and smelly, so I’ll generally ask for it as birthday/Christmas presents if I’m in need.
My hair game is weak
A morning brush is pretty much all my hair will get in a day aside from washing. This is partially to do with the fact that I have very well behaved hair that doesn’t require much care and attention, but primarily due to laziness..
I use phrases like ‘sweating balls’ and ‘MATE’
I blame this entirely on my team at work. I’m definitely just considered to be ‘one of the guys’ and am treated as such, which I don’t mind in the slightest but it has done interesting things to my vocabulary.
I rarely enjoy going out to shop
Every now and then I’ll go out on a shopping trip, but I’m a serial online shopper. Next day delivery, no judgemental sales assistants and being able to do it in my onesie? Yes please.
I only watched The Notebook for the first time this year
Nicholas Sparks doesn’t do a whole lot for me. I’ve never read any of his books, and I’ve only seen a handful of the films based on them, and d’you know what? I didn’t really cry at any of them..
I never carry painkillers
Rookie mistake; I’m forever the person that has to ask around for paracetamol.
I’m not ladylike in the slightest
I’m clumsy, I spill things and I fart, soz..
Anyone else fail?

This made me giggle so much louder than is acceptable on public transport! I also ladder my tights on a regular basis and fart much more than I should….but I do it whilst wearing a face mask….this counts as ladylike right?

Oh my gosh this comment had me in stitches! I think it’s totally acceptable, haha! xx
I literally feel like I could have written this post!
Haha aw thank you!
hahaha! I fail at being a girl too….
Life is too short to be uncomfortable in heels and faffing with my hair. lol
I’ve never seen The Notebook…..I don’t fancy watching it either. Oops.
To be honest, I only watched it out of boredom but it really didn’t do anything for me!
Can relate to these! Not a huge The Notebook fan, and I hate heels!
Haha, thank you!
Yup, totally relating to this!! Haha! 🙂
