You know you're a blogger when...


Since I have been blogging for a few months now, I would consider myself a blogger. Bearing that in mind, I wanted to share a few typical blogging scenarios or clichés that I think we can all relate to from time to time...

"DON'T EAT UNTIL I'VE TAKEN A PICTURE!" 
Yep, we've all been there. If that means your food will be cold by the time you've got the perfect shot, then so be it. God help if there is low lighting, I sure hope the person you're dining with is patient! 

"Rose gold and marble EVERYTHING." 
You don't have to be a fan but marble is a popular theme in blog photos, and I'm not surprised, it makes such gorgeous backgrounds. Rose gold and copper, well... Need I say more? It's just so darn pretty!

"But you already have a lipstick in that colour?" 
No, nope, nuh-uh. Every lipstick is different, it's not an obsession, I promise *angel emoji*. 

"You could write a blog post about this!"
I have reached that point in blogging where I now have friends and family (Hi mum!) suggesting posts for me to write and I kind of love it. It's nice that people are taking an interest in my life hobby and makes me proud of my little blog. 

"Cosy nights in, blogger style." 
I don't know if this is just me, but I love nothing more than snuggling under a blanket in the chilly evenings with my laptop and either writing a post, reading a post or joining in with the current blogger chats.

"That wall would make for great outfit photos."
Although I'm yet to delve into the world of fashion blogging, it doesn't hurt coming across trendy places that would make for aesthetically pleasing photos, even if it does mean awkwardly stopping to stare at a wall for 10 minutes.

"I have to have it, I can put it on my blog!"
You know exactly what I'm talking about... The buzz of excitement as you hear about a new make up range hitting the shops, or that coat you have to have. But I mean, it's for the blog right? It's totally justified!

"What do you mean 'I take too many photos'?"
The feeling when your camera roll or SD card has copious pictures of the exact same shot from every angle. They are necessary, and it's always one of the last few photos that is the one. The others are just "practice shots", obviously. :) 

"Will there be WiFi?"
As sad as it sounds, girl gotta have her WiFi! In the time you didn't have internet access, the whole blogging world could have collapsed... Ok not likely but, you see how it's a necessity. It's a common question I'm sure, but those Instagrams aren't gonna upload themselves! 

"So the other day one of my blogging friends told me..."
Personally, I don't enjoy referring to the friends I have met through this wonderful hobby as "blogging friends", but if I was to reel off names of bloggers whilst telling a non-blogger friend something they would be like "Woah Kathryn, when did you get so popular?" Nevertheless, the blogging community is my favourite ever and I have met some of the most amazing friends through it, end of! 

Can you relate to any? Let me know if there are anymore clichés you can think of!

  2. This is definitely my favourite post from you! It's very true and I can relate a lot to many of these! I love cosy nights in, they're the best! I'm constantly talking about my blogger friends and confuse everything as they're like 'Ehm, who?' haha! Great post Kat, and the first photo is fab! Can I just ask; where is the lipstick holder from? xxx

    1. It's from eBay lovely! Just search "lipstick holder". :)

  3. Just nodding at all of these, you just get me Kat. Every time I go into Boots my boyfriend says something along the lines of 'You already have that colour lipstick' or 'How many eyeshadows can you need, you only have two eyes?' but he doeesn't understand. The good thing is, I've had 'internet friends' for years who have become some of my best friends so I just say that my friends online said blah blah blah. Great post lovely!
