We can’t deny it, the blogging world is full of cliches. A lot of us have similar likes, and interests so it’s only natural that we end up buying similar homewares, clothes and colour schemes. And while we all try our best to make sure our blog is individual and our own, sometimes we can’t help but fall into the cliches that surround blogging. So today I thought I would share a few blogging cliches that I happily embrace.
All white everything
From my furniture to my instagram backgrounds, I love me some white. I’ve totally fallen into the trap of an all white bedroom: If my furniture wasn’t white when I bought it, you can be sure I have painted it white. And while my walls might not be a crisp white, it is a super pale blue with grey undertones that compliments my white furniture perfectly. I also have various forms of white backgrounds to use for my instagram and blog photos, from pieces of coverboard, to shelves.
Candles, candles everywhere
Are you really a blogger if you don’t like candles? Think of any of your favourite/top bloggers and I’m sure 99% of them love their candles and most of us are no different. I have them everywhere. There are two on my dresser, 5 on my chest of drawers, one on my bedside table, and multiple others dotted around my room. I always have them burning, especially if I know somebody is coming around. Unfortunately however, my budget doesn’t allow me to buy into the ultimate cliche… Diptyque.
If there’s one thing most bloggers love as much as candles, it’s stationery and I am no different. I’ve actually had to ban myself from going into TK Maxx as every time I went in you could be guaranteed that I would leave with at least one notebook. I have drawers full of unused notebooks, and most of the notebooks I have used only have a page or two used before I move onto the next.
From the minute I started watching beauty vloggers on youtube, I wanted a Macbook Pro. And when I went to university, I finally bought myself one, and I’ve never turned back. Like most bloggers, all of my technology is Apple, and I wouldn’t turn back. After all, a laptop on a bed photo just isn’t the same if it isn’t Apple.
