Why I'm Envious Of Americans


So as some of you may know, I went back to school..
-.-
I absolutely hate it and I've only been back for 2 days *sigh*
Since this is a pretty important year I'll probably have to stick to posting once a week by completing posts and uploading them on the weekend.
 Although whenever I get holidays I will vow to post as much as I can without getting annoying.

Now in case you're wondering:
Why not complete multiple posts on the weekends and save them as drafts?

I wanted to but I realised its better to wait a few days so fresh ideas can come out then type loads of boring rambly ideas in an hour.
Hope you understand where I'm coming from :)

Anyways lets get onto what I'm supposed to be talking about shall we?

At first I was going to talk about answers to questions people have for British people since I'm British but instead I thought It would be better to talk about my envy for Americans
Trust me, this is not as serious/evil as it sounds.

Basically since most of the people I follow on social platforms are from the USA, I get to see an insight of what is in America and while I am impressed, as small part of me is super envious.

So instead of blabbering on in a super long and boring paragraph I will use bullet points to hopefully make this a little more interesting.

So, as a citizen of the United Kingdom I truthfully admit that I am envious of the fact Americans have:
  • Bed Bath And Beyond&Bed Bath And Body Works (I'm not that envious of the fact that Americans have these stores, I'm more envious of the fact that the UK doesn't have such cool store names)
  •  Iconic fast food branches (Such as Chick-fil-a and chipotle, I've always wanted to try chipotle and although there is one in London, my mum probably wont accept me wanting to try chipotle as an excuse to go to London)
  • Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (I tried a peanut butter and jelly sandwich when I went on holiday and it was pretty much heaven between two slices of bread, I'm sorry UK but jam and peanut butter sandwiches are just not the same. Just to clarify, you can purchase actual jelly for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches but it is pretty pricey and hard to find unless you go online or go to an American themed shop)
  • Messy food, I've seen how messy the burgers are and I love getting my hands dirty, food in the UK is just too neat!
  • Such amazing candy (we have a lot of American themed shops in the UK and I remember spending £7.50 on a pack of Red velvet oreos, I feel like that's a rip off)
  • Such beautiful neighbourhoods (I don't know why but I feel like the exclusive neighbourhoods such as Calabasas and Bel-air are absolutely gorgeous and its just something I'm envious of, the house styles in the US in general is just something I love.

And that's everything!
I hope you enjoyed this post and I will see you very soon!

  1. Oh, my goodness, I love this! I didn't realize how much we Americans take for granted. LOL. Okay, so in all honesty, burgers ruin your life. Or, at least, your digestive system. I personally avoid them whenever possible. Every time I eat one, my stomach lashes out on me. Not pleasant. I guess if you're a major risk taker, go for it. Just... do it when you're not busy. It'll ruin your schedule.

    1. Me being stupid I'll probably eat every single burger in sight when I go to America and then spend 4 hours dealing with the consequences later..

  3. Forgot to add: Chick-fil-a is perfection. If you ever come to America, try it. Chipotle, you can try, but it's not my favorite. Most of my friends think it's the coolest thing after the iPhone, but I will gladly eat chicken nuggets while they eat burritos. But, like I said, it's really popular so you will probably love it. And as far as candy goes, three words: Sour. Patch. Kids.

    1. I've heard chick-fil-a and chipotle are awesome! Luckily in the Uk we have a chipotle substitute called Barburrito but I still need to try that.
      In the UK we have sour patch kids so I'm lucky!

  5. Hi, I just found this blog and I LOVE it! It's so open and honest, please post, you're hilarious and by the look of it awesome! I can relate to you because I used to live in America when I was smaller, but then as always my parents ripped me away and dragged me off to Spain, ( why can you always count on adults to ruin your paradise )?
    Anyway thanks.

    I'm looking forward to your next post!
    :)

    P.s. I totally agree on the neighbourhood thingie!

    1. Thank you so much!, I post every weekend due to my hectic school time table.
      Since you used to live in America, what was it like? How are you liking Spain?
      By the way, I'm glad someone agrees with the whole 'neighbourhood thing' :)

  6. Wow, I loved this haha! I'm from America, and I can safely say that red velvet Oreos do not cost nearly as much. If you ever come to visit the States, I'll be sure to be your personal tour guide! ;)

  8. Hi again,
    America is basically size XL of everything. The people are very welcoming, normally, and there is loads of stuff that you wouldn't find in other countries.
    Spain, the best thing about it is the food, it's awesome, especially the Paella, and Croquetas. The weather is really nice too.

    1. Wow! I feel super convinced to go to Spain right now, I'm such a food lover.
      With America, I'm glad there are such unique things because I'm visiting there in December so I probably purchase absolutely everything!
