I've had a frankly disastrous week starting with my purse going missing (and 
having to cancel all of my cards) not once, but twice! The first time it was stolen by my neighbour who only got away with £8 (or as I see it, a new mascara)  and after I got it back it fell out of the buggy 2 days later! This time it was handed in to the police and everything was in it, I personally think I need a new purse as this one doesn't seem to like me much!

So it got me thinking about a few other  things that make you tut inwardly (We're British after all!) Those little things that just make you go 'oh brilliant!'... or FML if we're being explicative.

The Big Make-up Shatter
Don't you hate when you see your compact/blush/bronzer/palette fall to the ground and there's a slow motion 'noooooo!' moment shortly before you wince and pick it up before slowly peeking inside to inspect the damage? Oh the horror!
When I see it's cracked into a million pieces a little bit of me dies inside.  Yes, it's still the same product but it doesn't look as pretty anymore and it's a damn site more messy I tell ya!


The Coffee Crack
I don't know if there is some science behind this, but there needs to be some other material better suited to coffee cup lids. Mine always seem to crack, maybe it's the heat, the pressure, I don't know. Hell, I'm no scientist but the crack causes it to leak and stain my white top! ... and it's always a white top!


"Tap... Tap... Tap.. Tap..."
The noise of worn down heels tapping on the floor really grates on me. You know that tap tap tappy sound when the metal is coming through and you want to shout 'go and get them re-heeled!!!' I hate it when my shoes need re-heeling, it's one of those things I always forget to do and then I go to put on a pair that I haven't worn in a while and I hear the dreaded tapping coming from my own feet and then realise why.


The Lid Pop
Now I don't know if this is just me, I've not heard others complain about it so it may well be the case but I have the odd nail polish where the lid decides it just doesn't like the brush anymore and makes the job of nail painting really bloody tricky!
 How does this even happen? It always seems to be Models own.... anyone else?


The Stow-Away
When you put on a pair of tights and only later on do you realised there's a bit of fluff/thread in them! It's definitely not on the top, you've tried brushing it away several times, it's in there, all cozied up against your shin!  Too late now, you cant exactly get your hand down there to retrieve it in a ladylike fashion, and attempting to move it around from on the top just doesn't work. That fluff is there for good -or at least until you get a chance to go to the bathroom anyway!


Big Break
A nail breaking is never a good thing but the ultimate worst has to be when it breaks right down at the finger! So close it pulls the skin! Ouch! it makes me shudder just thinking about it! When it just catches on something enough to snap but not come off completely. I always try and glue it down or pretend it never happened but there's no going back, it has to come off, and it's not going to be pretty!


The Blob
And lastly, when you don't notice your mascara has this little bit on the end...


so you end up with this...


What little things grind your gears?
Does your nail polish lid have a fear of it's brush?



  1. What a great post! I've had several of those things happen to me lately...definitely 'oh brilliant' moments.

    1. I'm glad it's not just me! At least they don't all happen on the same day!

  2. This post made me laugh so much, I hate days when all these annoying things happen. I have days where I constantly drop things again and again, it drives me insane!


  3. This post gave me a good chuckle, ALL these things happen to me! And yes it's always Models Own, every single one of their polishes I own does this! xxx
