Fears of a Blogger

The Skinny Kitchen Bournemouth

I love bloggers, and I’m not just saying that because I am one. I’m saying it because they (or at least the vast majority) are a bunch of the funniest, most relateable people I’ve had the pleasure of reading the thoughts of. We all share the same obsession with social media, we all get excited by brand opportunities, and we all suffer from the same OMG moments; cue a classic tongue in cheek post about things we bloggers are afraid of!

Who will take photos for my outfit posts?

Can I ask my boyfriend to take them? How many times is too many times to drag my friend round with the promise of free food? Should I give up and risk another dodgy self-timer shoot? WHAT TO DO

What will happen when I move in with someone?

What if they don’t like all the blogging props and housewares that I’ve bought over the years? Will I have to get rid of them? Please don’t make me change my aesthetic..

Please never let my favourite products disappear

I’m currently spending my time trawling through Depop and eBay hunting down my favourite MAC highlighter that’s now been discontinued and I can’t cope with the thought of changing my makeup routine if I can never find a suitable alternative

THERE IS NO DECENT LIGHTING

Why is the sun not out all year round?¬†What if I only have time to take blog photos in the evening? Great, now I’ve gotta change my Instagram theme..

What if YouTube takes over?

I can’t talk at a camera and I can’t edit video to save my life. The keyboard is my friend, please don’t let the written word be lost..

I really hope people like me IRL

I love all the people I’ve met through social media but what if I meet them in person and I do that thing I do where I get super awkward and weird and then they hate me

What are you afraid of?

10 Things I Do When I Drink Too Much

Today’s post is brought to you by half a jug of Pimms. Will I regret it later? We’ll see..


I’m just gonna start of by saying that I really don’t drink much these days; I might have a bottle of Koppaberg at a bbq with friends, but I pretty much never drink at home and I usual drive when I go out so I’ve turned myself into quite the lightweight over the years. This Pimms, however, is really good, and I’ll admit I had a coke with a splash of raspberry vodka before I started on the pitcher so this is quite out of character.

You’ll notice that my ability to spell correctly and use proper punctuation is unwavering though, and I think that’s a sign of a former grammar school girl. Other things I do when I’ve had a few too many..

Pee a lot

Everyone knows the deal with this right? Once you’ve been once, you set off a chain reaction of peeing frequently throughout the night. I like to tell people about this little fact too.

Get louder

I don’t even have to be in a club with loud music, my volume just generally increases

Make up words

We all do this right? Half an hour ago I coined the term ‘cakey-cookie’

Carb load

When I was 18, cheesy chips from the kebab shop next to Walkabout was my jam, but bread and pasta do the job nicely too

Solve a crisis

I’m full of answers when I’ve had a drink or two. They span from fixing someone’s zip to creating a solution for world peace.

Take too many photos

Normally on Snapchat, so at least the evidence disappears after a short amount of time, but occasionally they appear on Facebook..

Tell people how much of a lightweight I am

I feel like reminding people of this fact makes it more acceptable for me to be in whatever state I’m in. Oh, and I’ll tell them I don’t do this often either.

Disappear for lengths of time

I once locked myself in the bathroom at a friends house because I had hiccups

Be clumsy without realising it

I’m the sort of person that knocks something over, then is surprised by it falling because I didn’t realise it had anything to do with me.

Take off my shoes

If I wear heels, which is basically something I save for the work Christmas party each year and that’s it, at some point they will come off and they won’t go back on. I’m older and wiser now, so generally there’s a pair of roll up flats in my handbag.

Do you do any of these?
