Breaking the Mould

So, just as I said bloggers can be easily identified through their cliches, I also got thinking about all the ways in which I break that mould.  At the risk of alienating any of my readers, prepare to be shocked...

1.  I have never owned or used the Caudalie Beauty Elixir.
2.  I have no desire to buy a Louis Vuitton bag. 
3.  The stock in Zara has bored me for some time now.
4.  I can't cook.
5.  I own a dog, but he's not small or cute.
6.  I've never read Vogue.
7.  I drive a Toyota iQ rather than a Mini Cooper or a Fiat 500.
8.  I'm too lazy to really do any proper skincare.
9.  The thought of shelling out £39+ for a Neom candle just isn't justifiable to me, no matter how good they smell.
10.  I own neither Disco Pants nor
11. ...Jeffery Campbells.
12.  I've only been to Space NK once.  I did a circuit of it and left straight away, empty handed.
13.  I don't like the Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray.
14.  Origins GinZing eye cream did nothing for me.
15.  I hate Harry Potter.
16.  I've only listened to one Taylor Swift song in full.
17.  I can believe it when one month ends and another begins.  It happens every year, at the same time.
18.  I don't actually understand tumblr.
19.  I don't own anything by Clarins, Laura Mercier, Chanel, YSL or Lancome.
20.  I don't particularly like Starbucks.

I fear that these revelations may have exposed me as a blogging fraud now!  Which stereotypes are you going against?
Again, to anybody who may be offended by this, please remember that it's a tongue in cheek look at the blogging world in general!  It is by no means a personal attack on anybody in particular.

  3. A lot of these are also true for me, I could never wear Disco pants, I don't believe they are made for ladies of my body shape! haha.
    Another thing which I think sets me apart from the mould, I don't own either of the Urban Decay Naked Palettes. Although I do want them both! haha :)

    1. I wouldn't say they're a necessity, I have them both and rarely use them! Buck the trend...don't get them! x

  4. I don't like Harry Potter either!

    I can believe it when one month ends and another begins. It happens every year, at the same time. - That made me giggle! Haha!

  5. I've never tried the Caudalie Elixir either. I really don't like the idea of spraying something on my face! x

    1. I've got a few face sprays, but from what I could gather at the time a lot of people who had it and were suggesting others buy it didn't seem to like the smell or see the benefits of it?! x

    1. I don't understand it! Apparently it's a blog, but I don't get it? You just reblog pictures others have posted...so if you all follow the same people you'll always be seeing the same pictures? Baffles me. I think you have to really know what you're looking for to be creating a unique tumblr x

  7. I agree with nearly all of these :) I even have more "bad blogger" traits!

  9. I couldn't agree me! Especially the skincare, when I've been at work all day I'd rather get in bed then spend half an hour on my skin! xxx

    1. Especially with these cold evenings. I always get water in my hair which always leads to me feeling colder. Give me cotton pads and make up remover any day. Although I have been making the effort to moisturise religiously! x

    1. I feared I had become a bit of a blogger-clone, so I was glad to realise that I didn't follow absolute everything other people do! x

  12. Agree with a LOT of these. I don't like vintage so I'm definitely a bad blogger, haha! Also, Starbucks = waaaay expensive, no?

    1. Oh yes, and Cath Kidston? Overpriced old lady print! x

  13. This made me laugh, I wish I could claim the same but sadly I own a fairly cute dog, disco pants and beauty elixir. That said, I don't have ombre-d hair so maybe that claws me back a point! xo

  14. I love this post and the previous! Genius and very true. I tick quite a few of your blogging behaviors which you don't do! Although I also tick a lot of the blogging dos! Especially taking picture of my food, and everything else I do :D

    1. I know, if I think back to when I did monthly favourites then I think I did say that as well. I understand why people say it, and I think a lot of it's habit and fitting in, but when you think about it it's ridiculous! x

  16. Seriously Tabitha I'm going to unfollow you now, so sick of this.

    Jokes. Jokes.

    I'm so over Instagram posts every single freaking day. I DONT WANT TO SEE YOUR LUNCH AND EVENING STROLL HOME EVERY DAY.

    I also don't have any money, which seems to be important in buying the latest brands and make up and constantly filling up a wardrobe with the seasons latest trends. xxxx

  17. This didn't half brighten my day, especially since I drive a rickety little Citroen C1 and sometimes can only be bothered to run a face wipe over my mush at the end of the day.

    It's reassuring to know others feel the same, I often feel like my own blog has such a low following because I don't fit into the "mold." But I am now going to embrace it! Thanks for the spot of inspiration :)
