You know you're a beauty blogger when

I think it’s fair to say that sometimes us bloggers can live up to a cliche or two. Whether it’s rose gold, marble or ceramic pineapples, us bloggers do love a cliche and there are certain things that you’ll only know if you’re a fellow blogger. Having been blogging for four years now, and having spoken to so many blogger friends, it seems I’m not alone in my unusual habits. Which is why I thought I’d put together this fun post – you know you’re a beauty blogger when…


  1. You have a box of new unopened products that you need to photograph before you can use them
  2. You have a little celebration every time a brand retweets your post
  3. There are moments when an email is responsible for an internal fist pump and squeal of joy
  4. You feel annoyed when other bloggers have posted their reviews on a product, two days before your post is scheduled to go live
  5. Everything you purchase is for the blog. In fact a lot of things are bought ‘for the blog’, ahem…
  6. Your photographer, aka boyfriend, friend, parent, sibling, just can’t understand why they need to take 47 different pictures of you in the same outfit
  7. You are unable to eat any meal without arranging it on your plate and then taking a picture and instagraming it before even taking a bite
  8. You plan your holidays around places that have a Sephora
  9. You leave space in your luggage on any European trip just to stock up on the biggest bottle of Bioderma and all the amazing makeup you can’t get here in the UK.
  10. You buy the same magazine four times just because they are giving away four Nails Inc/ Clinique / Neal’s Yard products
  11. You pay extortionate shipping to get make up items sent over from the US, just because every big beauty blogger is raving about them
  12. You want to vent your rage on Twitter every time you get get an email addressed to ‘Hi Ms Blogger’

If you’re a fellow beauty blogger, let me know of any others you can think of. Or how many of these you agree with it!

    Haha definitely #1 and #12 goes straight in the deleted pile, really don’t care for mass emails. Great post xo

    My partner always laughs at me when I say I can’t use a product until I have taken the photo’s. We are going to New York next week and I have told him that there is more than one Sephora, he wasn’t too impressed!

    I’m no beauty blogger, but I know many who can relate to these. With the unopened things, I do have a SheWee waiting to be blogged about! 😀

    Hahaha, this it’s so true! Love 1 and 6! My boyfriend has become an “Instagram Husband”, when he can’t understand at all this world, but yo know, they just have to do it if the love us, right? 🙂

    Haha this is such a great post – I’m not a beauty blogger but I can certainly relate to some of it myself. x

    ha ha I am laughing as I have done many of these things myself – I love reading beauty blogs as I gain so many new tips and reviews are a fab way to see if a product is worth trying

  7. November 2, 2016 / 8:54 pm

    Hahaha these are all so true! My worst pet hate is when they get my name wrong xx

  8. November 2, 2016 / 9:34 pm

    Keep up the hard work
    Warm wishes

    I think that’s one of the issues with reviewing products on your blog, a lot of other bloggers end up doing the same at the same time.

  12. November 3, 2016 / 9:06 am

    This is really funny. I think some of them can be the same for food bloggers too.

  13. November 3, 2016 / 10:15 am

    hahaha!!! so true, especially 1,5 and 11!

  14. November 3, 2016 / 10:38 am

    Haha I love posts like this. I’m always like ‘how blogger of me!’

  15. November 3, 2016 / 2:15 pm

    Spot on! I think I can relate to almost all of these. Can’t forget the marble, and rose gold, haha. x

  16. November 3, 2016 / 3:01 pm

    Yes to all, I have a box of stuff I can’t touch yet and I just want to play with it!
    It all looks so pretty.
    You know that one eyeshadow palette you really want to use, but can’t until pictures and swatched? Yeah… THAT right now. Save me!

    Hahaha I am getting tired of hi ms blogger too. The world of blogging is such a fun thing indeed, I fist pump when brands retweet my tweet lol

  20. November 4, 2016 / 11:53 am

    Oh this made me laugh so hard!! I am more of a fashion/lifestyle blogger however I could associate with many of these points! Love the post xx

  21. November 4, 2016 / 11:45 pm

    Totally agree with all! especially 1 and 7, I like to make sure everything looks good in a picture first before I use it haha

  22. November 5, 2016 / 9:14 pm

    LOl, well you summed that up pretty well for me. I do most of those. I’ve never had an email with Hello Ms Blogger, I’m sure there is still time 😉

  23. November 5, 2016 / 9:16 pm

    Yes Yes Yes Yes! Definitely agree with them all! I don’t do many fashion related posts but when I did once get my boyfriend to take photos off me he was so confused :’)

  24. November 5, 2016 / 10:08 pm

    Haha I can relate to far too many of points on that list. I am a bit of a bugger for the first actually!

  25. December 18, 2016 / 11:13 pm
