6 Signs You Will Be Fighting Over The Bathroom

Hey Lovelies!

I hope you are all having a good week. We all know and hope equality should extend to all areas in men and women’s lives – but if we are honest, do we really want total equality when it comes to bathroom usage? We love the fact that men are taking care of their skin like never before. However, does anyone stop and think about the constant battle over will bag the bathroom first each day? Should you be about to take the next big step and move in with your man and are worrying that their self-preening may overtake yours, read on. Here are 6 warning signs there may be problems afoot:

1.He “Borrows” Your Moisturiser

According to news reports, Ryan Reynolds recently prepared for the Golden Globes with a variety of skincare products, including lip balm, toner and MAC Set Powder. Now, if they are bringing their own to the table, that’s probably okay (if in doubt, see above). However, I don’t know about you, but my moisturiser and serum are 2 of my most treasured possessions and at risk of sounding selfish – I won’t share them. If your fella is borrowing your skincare products, this may be a sign of things to come.

2.His Eyebrows Look Better Than Yours

He may just be really lucky in the looks department, but when it comes to eyebrows, the general rule is that some amount of effort is needed – particularly if his eyebrows are appearing neater and prettier than yours. Serious bathroom time, people.

3.Always A Bath, Never A Shower

Does he frequently refuse a shower in favour of a bath?

If so, logically speaking this is going to take a big chunk of time (possibly every day) even before the mirror time takes place. That is unless your fella is like mine and literally does everything (EVERYTHING!) in the bath.

4.You Already Fight Over The Bathroom

If you are about to take the plunge and move in together, my guess is you have probably spent a few nights at each other’s houses. During these times, cast your mind back to whether or not you have had to stand with your legs crossed waiting for him to vacate. There’s only so much time someone can spend on the loo, surely? Red flag, ladies.

5.He Knocks On The Door

When you are in the bathroom, does he knock on the door impatiently? Do you have to rush? #Bigclues!

6.If You Set Your Alarm Early And Still Have To Wait

On the occasions that you spend together, you decide to set your alarm so that you get bathroom time without stress, only to discover your guy has also read “The Three Little Pigs” and got there earlier still.

Should any of these signs be familiar, you may have an insight into what the future holds. If you happen to be someone who isn’t that fussed if you leave the house looking the worse for wear, whilst your other half appears so sparkly, he could be off to a modelling shoot, you may want to revise the living situation (or at least make sure your new place has two bathrooms).

Happy Friday people xx

Embarrassing Things We Do

Hey Lovelies!

Well, all in all, it’s been a pretty embarrassing month. If we are honest, we can admit that we all do dumb-ass stupid things (some more than others…ahem, me). But tell me this; Why is it that it sometimes feels as if God is watching over us, pointing a very large finger and saying “Today, I’m totally gonna screw with you.”? For me, (due to the fact I have to take strong painkillers) these ‘dumb days’ are more frequent than I would perhaps like. The embarrassing day has turned into one long month of living hideousness; from my severely sleep-deprived brain zoning out so I look like I’m an idiot who stares vacantly at everything; not wearing my glasses and saying, “Hello, how are you?” to complete strangers, to wiping off half my pencilled in eyebrow and walking round looking scary for half the day – I could go on. So, I thought what better way to deal with this inward self-torture than to share the top most stupid things to do (Truly hoping it’s not just me).

1.Being misunderstood in conversation with the local shopkeeper

Now, you are probably thinking this doesn’t rank up there on the embarrassment scale but let me digress:

The other Sunday I rushed to get to the only remaining store left open and managed to arrive there 1 minute to closing time. Whilst paying I explained to the really lovely Asian man that I thought I wasn’t going to make it in time, thinking I was going to miss him. He replied with, “Oh, come on, it’s not me you miss – just the chocolate.” (Awks). This is humiliating on two levels –the shop I frequent is now a no-go zone due to the fact that he thinks I was coming on to him! Secondly, he’s on to my serious and unrelenting chocolate addiction. Awful. And, now online shopping seems to be the only answer.

2.Helping with the neighbours bin

Again – how can this be in any way embarrassing? I’ll tell you:

Bin day – the neighbours bin is slightly in the way of my drive so I kindly go to check it is empty, so I can move it. I look in and there’s 3 pieces of small recycled rubbish in the bottom. Now, my bin is always full and being only too aware of how lax our bin men are, I PRESUME it’s been emptied and roll it back into its usual position next to my neighbour’s door. Mentally patting myself on the back for my kind Samaritan action, I am surprised to see (as I am reversing out of the drive) that the neighbour (looking somewhat cross)) is rolling it back to the end of the drive. Oops.

3.Mistaking someone else’s child for yours

This couldn’t be more embarrassing. Standing at the school gates and waving your presence to the teacher as a child with the same blonde hair and hat as your child is standing at the gate waiting – hideous!

4.Sounding like a total Idiot on the phone

Has anyone else ever been so worried about sounding so totally professional and smart, that when it comes to speaking, your brain completely fails you and so you sound instead like you have rather unappealing verbal dyslexia. Yup!

5.Inadvertently telling someone they need to exercise

This one was a total mistake – let me make clear it did not even cross my mind that the person involved should exercise more. The person was showing me pics and saying, ‘Look how thin I was there.” I said, “I know, I caught sight of my reflection and thought ‘God I need to tone Up, Too.” Clearly, my brain hates me. My innocent comment had taken residence on the dark side, making me appear downright malicious. She must have thought I was passively agreeing that exercise was necessary for the both of us, and secondly, I confirmed that by adding, ‘too’. The worst thing is I looked like a total mean douche but – hand on my heart – inside my head I just wasn’t thinking about anything other than the usual self-deprecating humour to which I generally reach.

Solution: look for a hole to jump in!

Does anyone else make such regular embarrassing blunders? Please share! xx
