Real Girl Struggles…. The Heat!

Real Girl Struggles…. The Heat!

Firstly, I’d like to apologise that I didn’t post on Wednesday, I was struck by the plague i.e flu and have been a sniffling mess, still am, for the past few days. It seems pretty ironic that I’ve managed to catch a winter cold at this time of year! Which brings me on to my post, it’s bloody hot isn’t it?

Us Brits, can’t be happy whatever the weather, well especially me. I complain when I’m too cold and I complain even more when it’s too hot. I like the thought of basking in the sunshine, but unfortunately I have to park my bum in the shade within a couple of minutes, in the case of overheating and ending up looking like something that’s just come off the BBQ. I feel like it’s worse for girls, sorry guys. That summer dress that you thought would be just perfect for this weather, is now sticking to your bum and you can’t even dream about sitting on the grass because you end up with bits of nature stuck all over you. Not to mention the flies that are hovering around you because you sprayed too much of your Britney Spears perfume, you might as well just accept that everyone thinks that you must smell. I envy boys sitting all comfortable in their shorts and vest, stretching out and enjoying the rays, whilst I’m worrying if the sweat dripping down my face is going to make my make up streak. It’s a hard life.

Sunglasses, thought to be the holy grail when the suns out, but someone’s forgot to mention that they get caught and savage your hair in the process, as well as leaving little indents in your nose, making it look like you’ve been punched in the nose. Someone, anywhere, needs to invent comfortable sunglasses, please, for my sake at least. Can you tell that the heat makes me agitated? I want to love the heat and I really do try, but it seems to be that the sunshine makes me happy for all of two minutes, then I turn into a grouchy, sweaty mess. 

The only thing that would sum up my mood right now and to sum up me in general over the Summer period, is this picture. It’s okay though, I’m pretty sure we will be going back to Arctic temperatures in a couple of days…


Has anyone got any tips to keep cool and to prevent your make up from streaking in the heat?


Lots of Love,
