6 Things I Hate About Summer


Lets face it, you knew this was coming right... my last post which you can read here featured 6 things I love about summer and yes, while summer is nearly my favourite time of year (close second behind autumn because you can't beat berry reds, scarves and pumpkins!!) it does still have a few downfalls that we all suffer from! I'm pretty sure that we can all relate to a lot of these so be sure to let me know in the comments if you agree with me, also let me know if I missed anything that you also hate about summer! 

1. THE ILLUSIVE 'BIKINI BODY'// Quite possibly one of my least favourite things about summer... mainly because I don't have one myself is the aspect of the 'bikini body' or the expectation that your body has to look a certain way in order to look good in a bikini! It's everywhere on social media and in magazines, everyone with a 'good looking' body takes summer as a brilliant opportunity to wear minimal clothing and just flaunt their amazing body.. ugh just stop! But let's face it, some of us just weren't born to have a bikini body and we should just embrace that - I know full well that I will be flaunting my non flat stomach and massive bum on holiday this year and who cares.. certainly not me! 

2. CROWDS.. AKA MY NEMESIS // Nothing against tourists but there's something about a hot summers day that just brings them all out.. and when I say all.. I mean ALL! That's probably one of the worst things about living in a city with a beach, on hot bank holiday or even just at the weekend the beach is full of people and you can barely move honestly!

3. 'TANNING'?! // I put a question mark after tanning because for me you can't really call it that.. I can spend hours out in the sun and either stay completely pale (if I slather on the sun cream) or go so red that I just end up looking ridiculous.. I always always burn the tops of my thighs and under my eyes burn without fail every single year.. so you can bet I will be looking like a red panda by the end of August.. can't wait, haha! I don't think I can seriously say I have ever had a really nice looking tan in my 20 years and I really don't know what I'm doing wrong! The worst part is, my brother and boyfriend are both those types of people who get the most gorgeous golden tan.. not fair at all!

4. IT'S TOO HOT // We can never win really can we... in the winter we're always complaining that we're too cold and in the summer we're constantly moaning that it's too hot! I definitely am a culprit of this and I'm never ever happy with the temperature that I am.. tell me I'm not the only one, haha! But at the moment I am obviously constantly saying 'omg, it's too hot.. ugh..' and I hate it, I hate having to sleep with the covers off because I'm scared that monsters will get me and I don't like sleeping with the window open because I know at 5am when I'm freezing I won't want to get up and close it.. ugh you see my dilemma, haha!

5. *ATISHOO*// I am of course talking about dreaded hay fever... Now, I don't normally suffer from hay fever but this year my body decided that enough is enough and I now unfortunately do have it.. boo hoo! Everything about hay fever is just a huge annoyance, makeup pretty much just washes off my face.. to the point where people honestly ask me if I'm okay! And I always always sneeze at least like 4 times in a row.. it just sucks okay!

6. BUGS // Maybe a close second on my list of summer hates (under bikini bodies..) I absolutely hate bugs.. ugh.. just everything about them.. no get away! That was the worst part of summer from me as a child.. all the spiders - for some reason they always used to be attracted to my family home and they would just constantly be in the house.. it was horrible! Luckily here, in my flat, I haven't come across ANY bugs at all, let alone spiders, so hopefully that means they can't reach us all the way up here... right?! *touch wood..*

  4. I just moved to the country ... at the beginning of summer and oh my god SO MANY BUGS. Seriously I need them to go away asap because they are driving me absolutely up the wall. I'm ready to be cosying up with a good yankee candle, in my dressing gown with a god book during Autumn

  7. This was good because sometimes you just need a good rant. I always felt like summer should be my favorite what with no school and all, but it is just not my thing. Sunburns are THE worst and something I work very hard to avoid. I am always equipped with my SPF 50 to prevent even the smallest of sunburn. I also hate the humidity. Where I live it gets so humid that you can barely breathe! It's the worst.

    1. That is so true! Summer was definitely more my favourite when I was at school but now I'm more of an autumn gal, haha! I'm definitely with you there on the sun cream thing - sun burns are awful! :) x

  9. HAHA this is weird because I was going to do this type of post recently myself! :D

    My number one hate has to be hayfever. I suffer quite badly with it, and alongside it not only causes me to feel poorly, but embarrassed to. I get anxious about sneezing and annoying everyone, and also if my nose goes dry from blowing and wiping it so much, I worry that I look mingin'! xD
