14 Problems All Girls Will Understand


Ladies don’t have it very easy sometimes, I mean it isn’t easy being this fabulous at the best of times, but let’s be honest there are some things that make our lives more difficult than they’re supposed to be. However we are still absolutely incredible, beautiful and fantastic in so many ways, so what are these problems that we will all understand or may have possibly experienced at some point? Grab a brew and chill out!

1. Period leakage

We have all had it at some point in our lives, constantly worrying whether or not our pad is going to hold up, whether our period has decided that it is going to turn into Niagara Falls, or if our pad/tampon or menstrual cup is going to move. All of these play a massive part in our worry scheme of things.

2. Missing a bit while shaving

This is literally the bane of my life, you feel your legs, all nice and smooth, you’re feeling a million dollars, then you realise you have that tiny line of hair on your leg. Sobs in the corner.

3. Wearing a bra

There is nothing better than letting the ta-ta’s, I mean letting the boobs out of the boob prison is one of the best feeling ever and I hate not wearing a bra and feeling supported!

4. Getting make up on a brand new top

We have all done it, and it is the worst thing ever. You put it on, your make up is literally looking pure perfection, and then there is this line of make up, could be foundation, could be eyeshadow, you don’t know, all you do know is it isn’t supposed to be there.

5. Underwear shopping

I literally hate it, I love wearing lovely cute underwear, especially if they come in a matching set, but because I have giant melons for boobs finding a matching pair can be difficult. It’s like why if you’re over a DD can’t you have the same cute underwear that you do for all the other sizes.

6. Bad hair days

You know when you have a big event to go to, you want to do your hair so it is absolutely perfect, you try to straighten it, curl it, and yet nothing seems to tame the lions mane. WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME HAIR?!

7. Boob sweat

Whether you’re working out or you’re out in the summer, boob sweat is everywhere. And the worst bit? If you’re wearing a white shirt. Nothing is more noticeable than when you’re in a white shirt!

8. Not wearing make up and bumping into everyone

We have all done it, we decided to give our skin the break it deserves and then we get what we don’t deserve, to see everyone that we don’t want to with no make up on. What did we do that was so wrong?

9. Clothes shopping

We all have that moment where we find something we like, and it’s not in our size. Or maybe it is in our size but as soon as you put it on it looks nothing like it is supposed to. Or it is a damn crop top. Why can’t we have tops that cover our tummies up? Is it budget cuts?

10. Eating on your period

It literally feels like you could eat your weight in pizza, chocolate, sweets and anything that you could possibly get your hands on. The cravings are real I tell you!

11. Wearing lippy

Now I love lipstick as much as the next person, however, the last thing you want is to go out the door with it on your teeth. You’re looking fantastic in photos you smile and there it is, a line of lipstick. Bane of my life.

12. Decisions on food

I am forever hungry and I mean forever hungry, there isn’t a moment when I’m not hungry, so when my husband goes, oh what do you want for dinner tonight, it is literally like I’m making the biggest decision in the world. Why must you do this to me, it’s so hard to choose!

13. Applying Eyeliner

Oh my god I’m hilarious trying to apply it, I mean getting the perfect cat eye is literally an art form, however, I take it to a whole new level, I take it to looking like a panda level because I’m that brilliant at it.

14. When people take photos of you

You can slay a selfie, however when it comes to other people taking photos you end up hating it because it is completely the wrong angle. Usually when someone else takes a photo of me I have about 500 chins and a wonky eye because I blinked.

    All of these things are so true! One of the best things about working from home is the amount I get to go braless. 🙂

      Have you been putting a treatment on it? Coconut oil is fabulous I use it regularly on my ends and it is perfect for my hair! <3

    Yesss I went out the house with no make up on today to do the food shop and what happens, you seem someone you know! I was like a ninja running around the shop trying to hide and get out of there asap before I was spotted!

    This really made me laugh, I could relate to pretty much 90% of these problems! Snacking is definitely something I tend to over indulge in on my period, except this usually also leads to me having the worst breakout ever. You just can’t win, try to cheer yourself up and things just get worse haha!

      There is nothing wrong with indulging, we all need a little treat sometimes and when you’re on your period it is the perfect timing! <3

    This list is so true. I can’t even pick one that’s most relatable – although the boob sweat is the one that made me laugh out loud 🙂

      It’s so true though, there is nothing worse than boob sweat, especially if you’re wearing a really nice top! <3

      Thank you so much darling it honestly means the world angel! <3

    Hahah I can relate to so many of these! The constant hunger and period worries are my main problems, especially when combined! Periods just make me crave so much junk and I can’t help it!!
    Great post 🙂

    I LOVE THIS! I agree with literally everything – and after such a long day I definitely needed this laugh. Lovely post! xx

    Oh my god, there’s one patch on my knee that no matter how I try, I always miss it! It’s terrible!
    Also lipstick and eyeliner, I love them both but eyeliner is the bane of my life to apply and lipstick annoys me so much when I eat and it comes off, haha!

    The struggles of a female!! The best feeling is taking of your bra after a long day. Pixie xx

    I must be one of the very few girls who doesn’t get the satisfaction of removing a bra at the end of the day. I like having my boobs supported at all times!
    Underwear shopping is an absolute nightmare though as I have a small back with DD boobs. I went to buy some of Rosie Huntington-Whitely’s line from M&S but what do you know? None of the bras are available in my size. Why is it so difficult to find cute underwear that isn’t atrociously overpriced?!

  13. 16/04/2017 / 4:06 pm

    Oh my gosh this post is magical! I can relate to everything so much… especially the leakage part! I used to get so paranoid that I would wear shorts underneath my jeans. Eek. Luckily I soon got over that but I still worry from time to time.

      I’m always the worst for that! I got foundation on my sleeve the other day! xxxx
