5 Things I Love And Hate About Summer.

It's catch 22 in Summer. I love so much about it but along with that comes an equal amount of hate.

So lets get straight into it. Here are the 20 things I love/hate about Summer.

1. Flowers. Flowers everywhere! 

Pro - I LOVE followers and filling my Instagram with them.
Con - Pollen

2. Longer days

Pro - More daylight
Con - As an insomniac, by the time I've gone to bed it's already getting light. Really doesn't help.

3. Summer clothing.

Pro - More options with clothing and chances to be bolder and brighter
Con - My self esteem really takes a hit. I have low body confidence and summer accentuates that.


4. Lots of Birthdays.

Pro - Family time. Lots of fun. It's great.
Con - Anxiety sky rockets and the whole socialising thing takes its toll.

5. Warmer weather.

Pro - It's so nice feeling the sun on your skin.
Con - The sweat is real. Just no. I feel gross.

  1. I completely agree with most of the things you've listed here! My worst one is the weather being so nice you want to go out to make the most of it but I'm so pale that after 10 minutes I'm burnt to a crisp! Also hayfever is THE WORST!I never suffered with it until last year but it's so bad now I can't cope!

    1. Burning sucks! I caught it on my shoulders so badly last year. Thankfully this year my skin is much more resilient and I'm catching more colour than burn.
      I have had it hit and miss this year. Some days I'm fine and others it's like I have a cold with the itchiest eyes and nose! Hate it!

      Thanks for reading Jess x

  2. I am a summer girl, I should have been born in the Mediterranean! I love flowers, sunbathing, wearing less layers, more daylight, outdoor socialising, the whole lot, haha! For me there are no cons, I just love summer! xx

  3. I love summer, the flowers, the warmer long evenings, wearing shorts, eating ice cream and everyone seems to be in a good mood when the suns out. Although hayfever is annoying and putting on sun cream isn’t my favourite thing! xx

    1. Ew I forgot about sun cream. Why does it have to be so sticky and gross?!

    1. Thank you Kate. I initially wanted to write a post about things I love but as I was writing I thought about all the downsides to those things. Air con would be amazing especially at the moment, it's just so stuffy everywhere.

      I do love Summer overall though.

  5. I'm so with you on 1,2 and 3. Having insomnia in summer is an absolute nightmare. But I hate the heat, I'm always cold (I'm weird like that) so I much prefer winter when everyone is cold and not looking at me like I'm crazy for still having a jumper on. I love the lighter nights for walking my dog though x

    1. I think a lot of people prefer the colder weather. The heat just gets too much.

  6. I'm really feeling the accuracy of number 1 & 5 lol, like ohhh myyy gosh!! Can it be any hotter?! PLus I live on a mostly sunny island, so summer time just means the weather turns from beaming hot to raging hot and sticky :( And I really love flowers but allergies really are annoying sigh. Great post!❤️

    1. Yeah it's that moment it goes from pleasantly warm to boiling hot. I'm not for that!

  7. I LOVE the longer days! I don't feel like I'm in danger whenever I leave work because it's still bright out. Summer clothes feel nice because you're comfortable without being snuggled up with the heat. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

  8. agree I love flowers but pollen is awful isn't it! I agree with what you said. The thing is with sweat is that it blocks my pores and makes me skin bad:(

    1. I absolutely love seeing bright flowers in bloom but I agree, the pollen is awful. It's been super strong this year, don't you think?
      Clogged pores are not what you want!
