Damn I’ve not long got home from work and I AM SOAKED! I get soaked running to my car and then soaked running from my car to the front door. Urgh, why did I forget my umbrella this morning? Well, I won’t tomorrow, that’s for sure. πŸ˜›

This must be the first post of the month (apart from my monthly posts) that hasn’t been Christmassy! Shock horror. πŸ˜›

Sarah over at Raiin Monkey tagged me a few days ago to take part in the 10 basic confessions tag. Last week I had a break from blogging, even though I had loads of blog related work up and ready as I’d spent the weekend before last just power writing and getting stuff up and ready.

That break was definitely needed! This week however, I am super busy with work so blogging is something I am trying to do, but my brain isn’t quite ready for it after a long hard day. I am trying though. So of course when Sarah tagged me to do this I just JUMPED at the chance!

The older I get the more I think I’m becoming less of a basic bitch, but I don’t know… I could still be a bit of a basic bitch to be honest with you! πŸ˜›

I love how this tag is something a little different and hey, there is NOTHING wrong with being a basic bitch! πŸ˜›

Β Holo

I’ve loved holographic stuff for years, before it became a trend to be honest but this is due to my love of Japanese fashion and other things. Growing up holographic stuff just stole my heart so the fact it’s a massive trend now makes me happy and even takes me back to the 00’s when I was a teenager. I love a good holographic nail polish lately, as well as stationary.

Wearing Vans with trainer socks

I don’t know if this is a basic thing, but I feel like it’s hipster and that still counts to me! πŸ˜› Since the summer I’ve found myself wearing trainer socks with Vans and although I love it, I used to take the piss out of teenage girls and men who did it! I usually wear them with leggings as well, which I think makes me even worse. It’s just so comfortable to be honest and Primark offer a HUGE collection of different trainer socks to choose from! My favourite ones to buy and wear are always Pusheen.

Starbucks

I love coffee, I really do. I grew up with my parents drinking coffee like it’s water. I also worked in Costa for two years so I like to think I know a bit about coffee too. Whilst I do still enjoy venturing into Costa and independent coffee shops, Starbucks is always going to be the basic bitches favourite place to venture to. I do really like Starbucks myself to be honest and whenever I’m out with my best friend Gabriella we go in there for caramel macchiato’s. πŸ˜› Also it’s the only place I find that does mint hot chocolate all year around, which in turn makes me happy.

Loving the sick (and rude!) memes

I’m such a sucker for memes and the more they create, the more into them I become! I feel like Facebook is just home to memes, cute animals and food videos that encourage you to cook and gain weight. I’m a definite lover of rude memes though and one page I love for this is Lush Dolly Memes over on Instagram. I love her posts and I think I’ve pretty much liked them all since the page started. πŸ˜› Go and check it out if you’re rude and crude like I am and then come back and tell me how damn funny their posts are.

Burning candles

I don’t know what it is, but during the summer months I’m not arsed about burning candles, but throughout the cold winter months the candles are lit daily in my house! Yankee Candles are my choice nine times out of ten to be honest, with Woodwick Candles being a close second. I just love scented candles so much, they add a lovely scent to the home, especially if you have guests. I currently have Cherries On Snow by Yankee Candle burning and I do really love it.

Table books

I do rather love books you can have in your living room either on/under your coffee table or on the shelf. People’s reactions to certain books is always good, whether it’s a comical book or about something you’re interested in. When I was a student I used to love going into places like Urban Outfitters and looking at the various different books they sell in there. I have all sorts of books myself now including books about The Book of Mormon, Persona 5, Pewdiepie, Deadpool etc. Table books are great and I recommend them for everyone!

Mermaid leggings

These are definitely a basic bitch item BUT at least I buy mermaid leggings by the brand that kick started it all, Black Milk Clothing! I have almost a handful of different coloured mermaid leggings now and I love them all so damn much. Unicorns and mermaids are so basic bitch things it’s a joke! I’m not a mermaid or unicorn person really, but mermaid leggings I’m definitely a sucker for. πŸ˜›

Fairy lights

I LOVE fairy lights so much! Not long after me and Dane got together I bought some battery operated ones and wrapped them around my bed. I loved having them on late at night whilst I read books before bed. Since moving into the house we now have some colourful fairy lights (well our Christmas lights actually…) around the stairs and some fairy lights behind our sofa in the living room, which we’ve wrapped around some of the artwork we have framed and hanging up. Yeah they’re basic bitch lights, but I love them anyway! I’m actually hoping i have some more for Christmas to hang behind the bed.

Sex and The City

Apparently this is a basic bitch thing… I had to Google what classes as being basic as at this point in the tag I DO NOT HAVE A CLUE! Apparently owning the box set of Sex and The City is basic. I don’t personally think this but meh. I watch every single season and even the films of Sex and The City, in order at least ONCE A YEAR WITHOUT DELAY. Honestly, not even joking. Sometimes I just get the urge to watch it from start to finish and it makes me so happy. Now I’m talking about it, I feel like I really need to watch it again!

I genuinely don’t think I’m a basic bitch

Of course this would be something a basic bitch would say, but I genuinely don’t think I am. I just like things that this young basic bitches discovered 10-15 years later! I’m 29 soon and have been watching Sex and The City since I was 16… Sex and The City isn’t a basic bitch thing, it’s a necessity for all women out there! Mermaid leggings are just amazing and so damn comfortable. Who doesn’t love scented candles? Man I could go on. πŸ˜›

So I have come to the end of this tag post! It was something different to do, but I have realised from taking part in it that I am definitely not a basic girl. πŸ˜›

I want everyone who reads this blog post to take part in the tag and make sure to link back to me when you’ve written. I want to see what basic things you are as well. xD

Again, I want to say a MASSIVE thank you to Sarah for tagging me to take part in this post!

Until next time all, take care. IT’S ONE WEEK UNTIL CHRISTMAS! πŸ˜€

  1. I haven’t seen this tag before, I would definitely have about half of these in there if I did it, though I have no idea what makes anyone basic! Holo is just too pretty to not love and I wish I had mermaid leggings, I just don’t get on with shiny leggings for some reason when it comes to actually wearing them. This is making me want to find sex and the city online and watch it now! I haven’t seen it in years.

  2. I haven’t seen this tag before but it was a lot of fun to read. I’ve been wearing trainer socks with Converse since I was 16 lol, I’m 30 now! I’ve never seen Sex and the City though.

  3. I loved reading your answers! πŸ™‚ I am also a sucker for memes! I love them, especially the rude ones XD Dark humour is my thing so I always love memes of that nature as well! I have too many memes saved on my phone, its getting ridiculous!

    I also love candles, but I find that I just horde them for ages! I should stop myself buying anymore until I’ve used up my stock, but it’s so hard to stop, especially when Yankee candle keep releasing new scents every season πŸ˜€ Fairy lights are super pretty! I have some Halloween ones, little jack-o-lanterns, wrapped around my bed frame right now :3 No worries lovely, I’m glad you enjoyed answering the tag! πŸ™‚ – Sarah x

    • Aww thank you Sarah! πŸ˜€ Aww man I LOVE dark humour so much. πŸ˜› You following the Instagram page I linked in the post? DO IT IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT! πŸ˜›

      Yeah I find that as well! Especially if I buy limited edition candles and can’t get them easily anymore… AKA American exclusive Yankee Candles! I am slowly getting through my Yankee Candle stash though. πŸ˜›

      Aww those sound adorable! I need to get some more fairy lights now for our bedroom after Christmas Day. πŸ˜› Ikea do amazing plug in ones for a great price, so I think I’m going to get those again. πŸ™‚

      Aww thank you again Sarah! ❀

  4. I havent seen sex and the city but i kinda want to since i never really watched shows about older women, i mean i seriously dont know what its about exactly but it seems like something i have to watch.
    I also love memes and candles hehe
    I might do this tag, ill tag u if i do 😊

    • Aww watch it! It focuses on Carrie Bradshaw, a writer who lives in New York. Each episode you see what her and her friends get up to, which is always something to do with their sex/love lives. You see each character progress as the show goes on in all sorts of ways. πŸ™‚ It was just a great show at the time as there hadn’t been anything like it! When I was single I loved it. πŸ˜› Aww yeah definitely let me know if you have a go! πŸ˜€ I’d want to read your answers. ^_^
