Basic B*tch Things I Truly Love And Hate
Updated: Jan 6
For a while back in in the day, being "hipster" was a thing to avoid, and almost 70% of us were one. I can't even count the amount of times I've been called a hipster. However over the last few years, hipsters have transitioned into what we now call basic bitches.
For those of you who don't know, a basic bitch is essentially being mainstream or the female stereotype. The only way I can really define it is that they are the pop music of the female world.
What does being a basic bitch entail? Pretty much everything you see girls doing on instagram....like visiting pumpkin patches, lattes, makeup, #sweaterweather and the Toronto Christmas Market.
I've compiled my complete list of BASIC BITCH things that I truly love and hate.
THE HATE LIST
Pumpkin Spice Anything
I've tried it time and time again, and I just can't get into pumpkin spice. It's disgusting. So shoot me.
As much as I love LUSH bath bombs, every single time I draw myself a bath and hop in with a candle and a glass of wine, I'm hopping right back out 5 minutes later.
Pumpkin or Apple Picking
Don't get me wrong, I love carving pumpkins and I enjoy the satisfaction of putting a candle in it without it falling apart or looking like trash, but I hate the process of driving to a pumpkin patch and actually going out to find one. I won't lie - I only pumpkin pick for the 'gram picture. I also went apple picking this year and they sat in the back of my car until they got rotten. Never again.
This one is a fine line between love and hate. I hate regular yoga. I like hot yoga. I hate paying for it. I enjoy the relaxing feeling afterwards but can't chill when I'm actually there.
Coachella or Rave Outfits
I'm dying to go to Coachella - trust me. But the outfits are ridiculous. You think they're fashionable? I think you picked them out of the trash bin BEHIND the local thrift store.
Posting Inspirational Quotes
Okay - I did this once (today on instagram) but as a general rule I won't do it. I think they're tacky. I'm re-doing my instagram aesthetic and decided to give it a go. So technically - this entry is hypocritical.
Ordering Mimosas at Brunch
What a waste of money. 4oz of Prosecco for $10+? No thanks. Give me a Caeser or a beer with breakfast and I'm good to go.
The Toronto Christmas Market
Waste of time, but if you do go, try the mulled wine. It was the only part I truly enjoyed.
Taking Boomerangs of Clinking Glasses
I have been featured in these, but you won't ever see me post them. That was so 2015, and I'm over it.
THE LOVE LIST
Well this one is a given, since you're reading this on my blog. I love the expression and I don't care who knows it.
Going for Brunch/Coffee
I LOVE a good breakfast. I also love coffee more than life itself. Give me both and an excuse to drink at breakfast and you've got yourself a winning combination.
Craft Beer and Wine
More so the beer than the wine, but I really TRULY enjoy both.
Yup. I love guac. I make amazing guacamole - my secret is tons of cilantro and tons of lime juice. ZESTY DELICIOUSNESS.
Astrology and Tarot Cards
I have been practicing this less and less over the last few years, but I really do enjoy reading about astrology and reading tarot cards. I've been doing this since I was a kid and I probably won't ever give it up.
I got my polaroid camera as a gift about 5 years ago, and I love having a physical copy of a moment. I also am really in love with my polaroid display in my apartment.
Cold Pressed Juice/Kombucha
I recently got into Kombucha and I'm actually super enjoying it (not the price though). Cold Pressed juice is a weekly purchase on my grocery list, despite how much my wallet hates it.
