We all know that there are a few struggles we all have to deal with on a daily basis, and this post just rounds up some of the ABSOLUTE ORDEALS I have had to go through over the past few months.
ORDEAL #1 – CLOTHES SIZES IN DIFFERENT SHOPS –
I love a bit of online shopping, but what I hate is that the problem of inconsistent sizing between physical high street stores is somewhat amplified when you are shopping online. Cue me choosing a size 8 dress that would probably fit on my arm, rather than my whole body. In my brain I am thinking, ‘Hang on a second, in DOROTHY PERKINS I can fit into a size 8.’ Welllll that’s because in Dorothy’s Fashion Empire their size 8’s are already like tents. I’m sure all ladies of different sizes can relate to this inconsistency. Sort it out, you shops you.
ORDEAL #2 – BEAUTY BRANDS DISCONTINUING YOUR FAVOURITE PRODUCT –
Although beauty brands are amazing and innovative, they are also fickle players. The reason I say this, is that you could buy an item, absolutely LOVE it, and after a few months go to repurchase and they have discontinued the foofing thing.
I encountered this loss when I went to my local Boots to repurchase a 17 nail polish in the most beautiful sea weed green glitter. To my dismay, I saw a crap aqua glitter replacement that had none of the beauty of it’s predecessor. Take a look at my lost love below:
ORDEAL #3 – WHEN THAT INGENIOUS IDEA OF YOURS DOESN’T WORK –
So, you guys might not know this but I am an avid baker. I usually find a few staple recipes and stick to those, venturing out to sometimes change a recipe slightly to see if I can find the next better version of it.
Cue Coffee & Walnut…& Nutella fairy cakes. Well, I couldn’t just do the recipe, could I?!
I decided it would be a good idea to add a splodge of Nutella into each fairy cake, thinking it would melt and become a gooey paradise of chocolate goo.
Instead, it did hardened and sank to the bottom like dis:
ORDEAL # 4 – FINDING OUT THE FOOD YOU ALWAYS THOUGHT YOU WOULD LIKE DISGUSTS YOU –
A nice day shopping out in Birmingham. Oh, let’s stop for breakfast shall we?! OKAI.
Oh, let’s try Eggs Benedict, I would love Hollandaise sauce.
No Roshni. No you would not.
The sauce is deceptive, in reality it is not savoury and delicious, it is a tangy hell hole of deceit.
ORDEAL #5 – WHEN YOU SEE A MASSIVE DOG AND WANT TO RIDE IT –
There isn’t really much explanation needed here.
You see a massive dog. Want to ride it. Realise you can’t. Cry.
ORDEAL #6 – WHEN YOU MEET ELSA FROM FROZEN IN REAL LIFE AND REALISE SHE’S SHITE –
So in ‘Frozen’, Elsa’s ‘Let It Go’ dress is FABULAMAZING.
When I met Elsa and Olaf in Chester town, her dress was, well, an atrocity.
Remember that odd sequin material you would get at primary school that you could use to stick onto drawings of mermaids?
Well basically she had a sheath of that pinned to a white long sleeved T shirt.
See for yourself!
What real life struggles have you ‘Pressers been encountering recently?!
