Wardrobe Malfunctions That Tick Girls Off

Wardrobe Malfunctions That Tick Girls Off

You know when you have a leotard wedgie or stick your thumb through your tights? Thats what this blog is about. All the irritating things clothes can do that make you want to walk around naked!

  1. Trying to  avoid your clothes touching the toilet floor. Bane. Of. My. Life. London is one of my favourite places to travel, but OMG never again shall I wear a jumpsuit while exploring the capital. Sat on the loo, holding your trouser legs up and thinking ‘why is the floor sticky’ is never fun. floor.gif
  2. Being able to fit into an 8 in one shop, and just about squeezing into a 14 in another... how?! What measurements do you use?! clothes
  3. The Leotard Wedgie. Put your hands in the air (like you just don’t care- forever an S Club 7 gal!) and ain’t no top untucking itself. Buuuut, you have a mighty wedgie all day. A compromise? I think not. wedgie
  4. Hat hair. I try to pull of the cute hat look, but always end up with fluffy/ static/ sweaty hair and a silly looking makeup line. hat hair.gif
  5. I love me some Sequins, but can we appreciate the torture of wearing them sometimes? Plus the fact they can’t be washed and fall off everywhere. Scratchy little things. sequins
  6. Sticking your thumb through your tights. Give me strength. This is enough to ruin my mood all day. I even try and pack a second pair now, just in case! tight.gif
  7. When your ripped jeans… rip too much. OK I know this is a mega first world problem and I can hear every over-forty year-old in the country asking me ‘why did you buy ripped jeans then?’. Because they’re cool. OK. They’re not cool, however, when your knee is hanging out of the overly big hole that you busted bending over. Oh and another thing: I get chilly knees!jeans
  8. Side Zips. Pure evil. I genuinely feel like I’m from a scene from Jaws whenever I do up a side zip. The worst is a side zip under your arm. You have the frustration of trying to get the right angle without popping a shoulder. Then the panic that it could nip my skin at any moment. And I’ll be stuck. Forever. *cue dramatic music*jaws.gif
  9. When your little toe pops out of your tights. Makes me cringe even thinking about it. (Makes me cringe using the word cringe) Eugh the horribly cold sensation as the rebel toe escapes. Never sure if it’s cold or a lack of blood supply from the tight-tights. drama.gif
  10. Someone stepping on the back of your flip-flop. This aggravates me immensely. It goes one of two ways: it breaks the toggle-bit between your toes. Or, it shoots forward in an attempt at freedom and you have to hop after it, humiliated. anger.gif

Girl Struggles are one of my favourite things to write about. I think it’s because I’m a little bit dopey sometimes, and have experienced the majority of ‘Girl Struggles’ imaginable.

Hope you enjoyed reading this and maybe you even thought ‘same!’ (I hope someone did!) ,

Things I think in the Gym

Things I think in the Gym

  1. Forgot my earphones. Again.
  2. Every girl in Leamington is in this gym tonight. Crikey.
  3. It stinks.
  4. Why are there never any treadmills?! Bike it is.
  5. Why do gyms place random mirrors around? It’s actually so off putting watching myself cycle. Like, is that what I look like?!
  6. How have I only been on this machine for 12 minutes and 34 seconds?!
  7. Wow she looks pretty glam for the gym. I look like a potato.
  8. Ooh KUWTK is on!
  9. Now I feel even more like a potato.
  10. I am going to channel this potato-ness.
  11. I cannot wait for my Deliveroo later, eek!
  12. This has been on my mind all day. During my seminar this morning, my stomach rumbled and sounded like a fart. But I swear it wasn’t.
  13. A girl just hopped on the bike next to me and it feels like a passive aggressive race. It’s on.
  14. Oop, just made eye contact, now it’s just uncomfortable.
  15. The news is so depressing.
  16. I probably don’t need to eat deliveroo and cake… but I shall!
  17. What if everyone thought it was a fart?
  18. Oh my gosh, the word fart comes with this emoji: 💨
  19. This has me in stitches. I look like even more of a loon chuckling away to myself in the gym.
  20. I want to go on a mat but they’re all taken.
  21. The news just showed those creepy ass robots- do they freak anyone else out?!
  22. I’ve never looked at the ceiling in the gym before.
  23. Hey! Someone has just left their water bottle on the matt  while they go on another machine. Not the rules of the gym gal. Nu-uh.
  24. Guess my legs are going to be super worked out after this!
  25. I can’t feel my butt.
  26. I wonder if I can move the water bottle.
  27. Nope, I’m not bad ass enough and confrontation makes me clammy.
  28. The news reporter looks like a young version of Will Smith.
  29. Yay, I got a mat! Had to sprint to get it, but looking eager in the gym isn’t the worst thing in the world!
  30. Never know where to look when I do hand weights. Like, I don’t want to look at myself in the mirror, because people might think I’m thinking ‘phwoar’ which certainly isn’t the case.
  31. Looking at your arms while you do weights is impossible.
  32. I found a nail in the wall. That’s where I’m looking.
  33. Just had a panic, thought my trousers split. How embarrassing would that be?!
  34. Doooooone.
  35. I need food in my belly.
Here is a super blurry picture of me blowing out my candles following this gym session. Yes I did eat the cake!



Dot To Dot- Wish List

Dot To Dot- Wish List

I am loving all things dots at the moment and if I had more money I would certainly be wearing more of them! So today, I put together a Wish List of dot inspired clothing. I feel like Cruella Deville (minus all things animal cruelty!).

These are all products I would wear. So I’ve picked out things that would suit my body type. I am a HUGE promoter of dressing to suit your figure and to make you comfortable. And quite frankly, not all the ‘on trend’ styles suit me. So being brutally honest: I am 5 ft 3, I have big boobs and chunky thighs. So here is what I have learnt:

  1. Never underestimate the importance of feeling good in your clothes. You wear it with confidence and you will own it.
  2. You got big thighs? Emphasise your waist- oh and floaty trousers are your new best friend. 
  3. Fact: People pay mega bucks for boobs. Though I am the first to complain about their inconvenience, I know they ain’t going nowhere, so why not dress to suit! This, for me, means avoiding baggy tops and wearing comfy, supportive bras (even if they are a little granny-like or you have to pay a little extra!).
  4. Would you talk to your best friend the way you talk to yourself (in terms of body image)? No? Then stop. Be nice to yourself!

I hope you enjoy!

Student Stereotypes

Student Stereotypes

University exposes you to all kinds of wonderful variations of student. But as a prospectus student its hard to know what stereotypes to believe.

Here is a list of Student Stereotypes that I’ve put together to give an insight into the realities of student life.

Type Number 1: THE CAFFEINE ADDICTcoffee shops on campus are always (funnily enough) buzzing. This type of student is the one you can’t picture without a take away coffee cup in their hand. I’ve often wondered how these people sleep at night. You can tell when the deadlines taking it’s toll on a person/ it’s victim when their desk is scattered with energy drinks. Warning: a caffeine addiction can be an expensive affair, so if you feel you may be vulnerable- by a flask in advance!

george of the jungle

Type Number 2: THE LAST MINUTE ONE- we’ve all been there. Where we have underestimated the time it would take to tweak a few words and write a bibliography, and ultimately stayed up all night fixing it. But it’s when you do it EVERY TIME that you become the ‘last minute student’. This is probably quite a stress free student life 80% of the time, the other 20% however is pure hell. Usually worst around the time the mammoth end of term deadline rears its ugly head. You find this breed of student hunched in a corner of the silent floor in the library, surrounded by energy drinks (maybe a caffeine addict too?) giving off vibes of intense anxiety.

Nothings going in

Type Number 3: THE ONE WITH THE GAP YEAR MEMORIES sometimes the stories are awesome, sometimes they’re obviously made up… But they’re usually the ones with stories full of life lessons. I think a little part of me will always wish I had a gap year. Having said that, it never appealed to me at all before University, but there really are so few times in your life that travel is so easy!

Type Number 4: THE PARTY ANIMAL- AKA not me. I am more of a chatting-in-a-coffee-shop kind of gal. But probably the biggest student stereotype is the party animal. The one who will drink til dawn, loves all kinds of events, whether they’re clubs, pubs or student run events. There is no denying that being the party animal will lead to super memories, and so will befriending one!


Type Number 5: THE FORGETFUL ONE- yep, that’s me. Along with the majority of students! I will highlight there is a difference between forgetting your keys (such as I) and then forgetting deadlines (totally not me, even the idea terrifies me).

Type Number 6: THE SLEEPER. Granted, the ability to take naps has been perfected by myself over the last 2 years. I find a 20 minute nap is just enough to recharge my batteries, but not long enough to make me shattered. However, I am not a sleeper. A sleeper is the student that uses the desk in lectures to catch some z’s and usually the one who openly states that they can’t do something because they ‘need a nap’. University is tiring stuff. But this type of student is a total pain in the butt to do a group project with!


Type Number 7: THE LOUD ONE- the one who comes in late and announces it to the flat, or chatters away mid lecture or even worse- blares their music in Halls of Residence. Tip: usually it just takes a knock on the door and they’ll turn the music down, or a sharp ‘shh’ in the hallway at 3 am. Writing this, I am aware of how boring I sound!

Type Number 8: THE TYPICAL STUDENTlies in, leaves washing up for a week, takes all washing home, plays their music too loud and occasionally forgets their notes for University. This is the majority of people.

So, what breed of student am I?

Type Number 2: the forgetful one: I lose thing continually and forget things a lot. But luckily, not the most important things (so far!)

Type Number 3: the caffeine addict: ONLY around exams. But boy does it get bad.

Type Number 8: the typical student: does it count if I turned a wash pink with a red sock?

Type Number 7: the sleeper: I am the Queen of Naps.
