Lets Be Honest Here



We all wish that some parts (most parts) of our life were better, we sometimes wish our lives were "perfect" like the girls who write the BIG blogs or film those fabulous YouTube videos or our favourite celeb. What is perfect anyway?

I think there should be a little more honesty in the blogging community, or if that isn't possible then ladies at least take a deep breath every now and then and admit to yourself that your favourite bloggers life isn't so perfect.

We all have a junk drawer (or 2) in our kitchen unless you have major OCD, we all argue with our spouse sometimes, we all wish that the frickin dust would stop gravitating towards the black TV!!

It's ok, and above all, it's NORMAL. The photo's we see on blogs are what we want the world to see, we choose the right place to take those pictures so we can portray "life is pretty" and you know you arranged and rearranged the candle a million times, and made sure there wasn't any dust and you took the photo from an angle that hides the pile of junk in the corner you have been meaning to tidy up for the last week.

In reality I have been off of work since Wednesday because I had an operation and my boyfriend had to leave Friday night to go away to Germany for a week for work and I miss him so much I have cried, most of my family don't live in the UK so I am home alone and more than a bit lonely. My good friends all live far away and there have been moments that I have thought who the hell would I turn to if I really needed someone right now? Perfect? Far from you see.

So stop beating yourself up about how imperfect your life is and accept that it's just the way things are. All the rubbish moments will make you appreciate the good ones so much more.

Feel free to share one good and one bad thing about your world in the comments below, we won't judge, promise!

I'll go first:

I have no food in the house, I'm hungry but don't feel up to going shopping.
In a couple of weeks I will have a new baby niece.

  1. I have my little boy who brightens up my day regardless but I still have my bad days. I always take breaks from social media, like my blog as I feel sometimes it all gets too much and I need a break to concentrate on my family. My blog is always hit and miss. My bedroom is mostly a mess. Makeup is taking over it. I'm a untidy person. Ha!

    1. My bedroom is pretty messy right now too. I promised myself I would tidy it today but in reality I probably won't!

  3. I think its less that bloggers want to hide their 'reality' just that readers want to escape reality for a bit when reading.The same reason we like to follow celebs or soaps. But anyhow...
    Good Thing = I have awesome friends, and feel lucky they like to hang out with me too.
    Bad Thing - I wish I had a bigger flat so I could invite people round more!

    1. I don't think bloggers hide their reality necessarily either, we just don't often mention the bad stuff, which I am as guilty of as anyone else. No one wants to write about having a rubbish day or how untidy their house is, but sometimes other people need to read those things so they can smile and feel a little better about their unperfect lives rather than beating themself up thinking that they are the only ones who can't be bothered to fold the laundry or do the washing up or put make-up on that day.
      Thanks for joining in! x

  4. Great post! I mean, I like to show my true colors when I'm blogging but some things are just not blogger friendly or should just be kept private. Those hard times we all go through, no one wants to write about sometimes so yeah-no comparisons to others. Everyone has their own battle
    To fight.
    Good thing: I have begun a fitness journey and want to become a runner so I've been working out and pounding the ground.
    Bad thing: my house is a mess right now and I have a pile of laundry yet I'm on the couch reading blogs (great blogs though lol)

    1. Thanks for your thoughts lovely. That is very true we don't display the bad parts which in turn can make some people feel more insecure about themselves and their own life because they only see the good in ours and assume it's all like that.
      Good luck with your fitness training it's hard to do, and I also have a pile of laundry that I need to put away slung over the end of my bed and I have been watching telly instead! x

  5. I'm a perfectionist/ OCD, but my house is a mess with a toddler and fiancee who loves to leave his shorts on the couch before going to bed. Inside it makes me cringe, outside I just leave it.. too much effort. I'd rather blog lol!
