Confessions Of A Blogger


As soon as I start blogging about how the weather is getting colder and Autumn is coming the sun decides to pop up and pay a surprise visit and I am not liking it. However we are coming up so close to September so soon Summer will be officially over and I will be in my own little heaven. This post has been sitting in my list for ages but for some reason (god knows what) I've just never gotten around to uploading it. All bloggers, and I mean all, have confessions like these that they had to admit, especially to themselves which is why I'm writing this post so we can all rejoice in how we deffo don't fit into the perfect blogging image that we all know doesn't actually exist. We all have things we need to work on and let's be real, if we don't admit what they are we'll never motivate ourselves to actually work on them, so moving on here are a few of my blogger confessions.


- I ALWAYS forget to take my makeup off at night. I'm honestly the worst person ever for it, I just get in bed and then get too lazy to move to do it. Oops.

- I then moan about having spots all the time.. hmm I wonder why Isabelle.

-Following up on that point, I also always forget to moisturise.

-I either have no blog ideas or 50 at once. There is no inbetween.

- I also won't plan the ideas that I do have for future reference, I'll let myself forget. (Idiot)

- I'm the worst person at comparing myself to other bloggers. I think we all do it, even if we don't mean to, but as long as you use that jealousy to motivate yourself to do better rather than being bitchy or horrible about it then it can be okay.

- I'm forever buying products and forgetting to blog about them. Oh my it's something I really need to change.

-The blogger community scares me. I know that the majority of other bloggers are so lovely and nice but I'm constantly terrified that I won't 'fit in' even though I've been blogging for 5 years now.

- I take pictures of everything, literally. It annoys my friends so much haha!

- I can never keep my makeup clean, and I'm always forgetting to wash my brushes. I irritate myself majorly with this.

- My food always gets cold because I have to get that perfect Instagram or Snapchat, why do we do this to ourselves?

I decided to do this post as when I first started blogging I thought every blogger had this perfect image, and honestly they don't. I'm far from what that perfect image would be, as are most of us, and I just thought it'd be fun to share some little secrets I have that I'm actually pretty ashamed of. Do any of you have any confessions you'd like to share or do any of the things I mentioned too? Be sure to let me know down in the comments and we can be annoyed at ourselves together. I'm just over 10 followers off 1.5k over on bloglovin so if you fancy helping me get there then please go give me a little follow HERE, it'd be super appreciated and I'm always active over there so you'll get a follow back!

  1. I think everyone compares themselves to everyone these days, unfortunately we can't get away from it with social media! Like you say, as long as we use it to motivate ourselves and not feel bad about ourselves (sometimes easier said than done)then it's not so bad!

    1. So agree with this - I heard a great quote the other day in regards to social media and it was this: "Don't compare your everyday to someone else's highlight reel"

  3. Haha I can so relate to this post! My thing is eating half of my food before remembering to take a picture, I do that a lot. I also tend to compare myself to other bloggers, it's so hard not to but I've really been working on it. It's so comforting to know that we're not actually as alone as we think we are :)
