What’s the last thing that happened that made you blush?

Me: I blush all the time because I’m always doing stupid things. I did realise I had my top on inside out (again) the other day and had been prancing about it the tags out for the whole day AND there was a hole in the back…yeah…it’s been a busy month.

One entry per person, open internationally. Winners chosen in 2 weeks.

  1. I was in a shop the other day browsing and someone shouted “EMILY STOP THAT!” and I automatically said “Sorry!” Of course they were not talking to me, they were telling off their toddler :(

    I cut my leg when i shaved them Friday night and dabbed toilet roll on it while i was getting ready to go to the pub – only problem was i forgot to remove the toilet roll before i left the house and didnt notice it until we were sat outside the pub and my boyfriend put his hand on my leg – was so embarrassed x

  3. Probably when the pervy old guy at work keeps propositioning me in front of everyone! argh!

  4. I blushed when I forgot to thank people at the seminar I attended. I said the equivalent of “Nice to meet you” instead of “Thank you”.
    Also, I go into ignore mode when I commute to work, and sometimes someone braves that to give me something important that I’ve unknowingly dropped. I always blush because I was completely prepared to ignore the helpful person. This has happened a few times already.

  5. My mom was wearing her fav sleeping gown, and didn’t realize the armhole got really really big due to a loose thread. She turned, lifted her arm and if I was 6 months old again, I would have gone “Yum, snack time!”

  6. Not something stupid I did, and some time ago, but my most blush-worty moment so far:
    During a group work in my university class last fall semester, some Chinese guy kept disturbing our discussion, especially when I tried to get some smart answers out of the Korean guy who liked to keep his wisdom to himself. After a while, this Chinese girl goes:
    “Julia, you really don’t like , but you do like . Unfortunately, she really hit the spot, and as I am the worst liar ever, all I could do is suggest going back to work and hide behind my text book. I do feel like I saw a grin on the Korean guy’s face, though.

  7. i blush when i feel everyone is looking at me >.< if a guy i like look at me, i wont blush, but when the whole world is looking at me i would! lol

  8. Last month my sister brought her new boyfriend over. He’s from Cascais, Lisbon, which is an area with a lot of rich people and, well, a bit spoiled XD There are a lot of middle aged/old ladies that are commonly called “aunts”, who are married to rich men and have a very peculiar way of speaking. So the Cascais zone is pretty much made fun of by the country, specially where I live, in the north.
    So, we were having lunch, and I was always restraining myself from saying something about Cascais so to not offend him. But, seriously, every time someone talks about Lisbon, I remember the aunts of Cascais… and I ended up making a joke about it.
    There was a brief silence, one of those where you can feel the tension and embarrassment. Then my sister laughed and someone quickly changed the subject.
    I was so embarrassed… I know he wasn’t offended, but he probably IS from one of these families, I found out later. Good Lord, I still feel like an idiot every time I remember this!

  9. I fell over my wedding dress in the shop when practicing walking in it. I would blush a lot more if I did on the big day!

    Accidently banged my shopping trolley in to another shopper in asda. whoopsss x

  11. Astrid James says:

    My dog relieving himself in my neighbours garde while I was talking to them!

  12. I don’t really blush- but then, it takes a lot to embarrass me! The last thing I can think of that did was last week, when I was out at a citywide festival. I was bending over, helping my daughter, and when I glanced down I realized that the scoop neck of my dress was hanging in a way as to make everything quite visible. At thi point, I also noticed that the man next to us was taking full advantage of this fact. Oops!

  13. I was at a wedding the other week & one of the male guests who was gay couldn’t take his eyes off my cleavage & kept telling me I was turning him straight. I was so embarrassed. I told him that if he wasn’t more camp than Butlins that I’d have given him a clip round the ear!

  14. it was only yesterday- I forgot to lock the door in a train toilet, and got walked in on by the cute guy who had been sitting in the seat opposite, just as I was …. aaaagh (he went and sat in a different seat afterwards too)

  15. Paul & Joe >”< they've got one of the prettiest packaging :)

    o yes, on to the answer,
    I usually blush when I do stupid things in public…like tripping on flat ground (seriously don't know how I did it…) or walking straight into a huge sign while walking on the sidewalk cuz I was trying to hide from the blazing sun…
    but the latest one wasn't any of that…
    Last thing that made me blush was my friend teasing me about the guy I used to really like in school contacting me again after like 6 years and starting flirting…I kind of forgot he existed til he contacted me haha
    the embarrassing part is that I blushed when I was teased about it…so I pretty much still blush when I think that I blushed when my friend teased me (does that sentence make sense?? *blushes* :p )

    p.s walking with your top inside-out is embarrassing but it can't be worse than wearing your skirt inside-out and waling around in public without knowing…since we can lie that it's the style/design of the shirt, to be worn inside-out, i've seen tops like that…but for skirts… :S haven't seen one yet


  16. I often mix up my words or pronunciation that makes me blush. πŸ˜› makes me feel really silly. last time i said miced instead of minced. πŸ˜›

  17. hannah evans says:

    I blush all the time – probably three times a day – the worst one this week was probably going to the theatre and sitting in the wrong seat on accident – only for it to be my boss’ seat! He turned up and must have thought I was an idiot who didn’t know the alphabet! I went so red!

  18. my boy ;D

  19. Mistaking my cousin for my uncles second wife at my Dad’s funeral (hadn’t seen them since I was a child!)

  20. I work at a hotel and a few days ago there was a guy who hit on me while I was checking him in. I blushed and then flashed him my wedding ring. He scuttered away :) Victory! Haha.

  21. Julie Brett says:

    I got my coat stuck in my car door the other day and I didn’t realise, as I walked away I was pulled back and I slipped on the wet ground and some school kids laughed at me, I was so embarrassed.

  22. I blush when I can’t answer a question or get questioned for an extended period of time. Especially when its a good looking guy…

  23. haha I always come out with stuff that doesn’t make sense, or get my words mixed up…I’m sure my mouth can’t keep up with my brain! I should just learn to pause between sentences :)

  24. I recently did a swap on MUA for a Chanel polish and NARS blush Mounia; the NARS blush was part of a clear out my friend had when she was leaving UK.

    Due to my partner swapper’s holiday schedule, she sent the polish weeks before and I had to hold onto Mounia until she got back and I sent it off early this week following her confirmation that she was back.

    Yesterday, I got a message from her that the blush is a fake!! I had no idea that fake NARS items even existed!! Now I’m desperately trying to find out how I can distinguish the fake items from genuine items but this has been a very very embarrassing swap! (In the end, I offered to pay her the RRP of the Chanel polish)

    One of the lecturers at college peering really closely at my face to examine the make up work of my peer.

  26. calling out to someone and it wasnt who i thought it was when they turned round

  27. LOL I enjoyed your blushing moment story. I’m sure you still looked fabulous :)

    My most recent blushing moment would have to be when I was using a clay mask to do spot treatments all over my forehead and walked out of the house to fetch the mail with it on. The mail carrier laughed right before I was able to turn around and scurry back into the house.

  28. My daughter came back home unexpected and I had to blush when she caught me wearing her top, AND lipstick

  29. Being called by the exes name by his family… Ooh.

    i had to blush last week when someone asked me if i had left school yet – I’m 29 next week!!!

  34. ah my god this just reminds me of the time when i tripped over who knows what on the floor and flashed to practically the whole school (ok like 20 people but STILL)
    what a bad day to wear a skirt without shorts underneath :(

  35. My 3 year old nephew had me blushing when he told me off for forgetting to say ‘thank you’ when his mom handed me a glass of juice…

  37. i blush so easily. the last thing that made me blush was when i was walking past some builders and the whistled so load and shouting, i got so embarrassed and my face went red :-S

  38. Two days ago I was sitting in my accounting class with 30 other people. I had my Iphone face down on the table and I pulled it toward me. It made the biggest fart noise ever, and a lot of people noticed it and chuckled. I didn’t blush, I turned bright red! Turns out, the protection case that I have is made of rubber and it was just the sound of the case rubbing against the table, but every one will always think i farted…

  39. Calista 101 says:

    Too many blush-worthy incidents in my lifetime! But how can I escape my latest? It was the most cliched, script-like moment when a woman gets toilet paper attached to the sole of her cute Biani heels. Ugh! And I blushed like a tomato when my co-worker had to point it out to me.

    Such shame!

  40. When my boyfriend told me he loved me!

  41. I blush whenever I have to do public speaking which I really hate. My whole head slowly starts feeling warmer and warmer so I’m pretty sure I look quite flushed.

  42. I saw a cute guy at the mall. I was staring and he waved at me. lol

  43. Things that made me blush? hmmm….Owh! i was actually in my garden running around with my baby cousin to entertain him lk a bunch of crazy kids…and suddenly out of nowhere i heard familiar voices…it’s a guy which i liked before…geez…he saw my crazy action and smiled…that’s when i blushed…xD

  44. The last time that I blushed was when it was raining and suddenly I slipped in a puddle and soaked my pants. Nobody helped me up. They all just went on, staring.

    Anyways, nice story! I always wear my shirts inside out too. :)

  45. Tripping on the treadmill

  46. The last thing that made me blush was two days ago when I went out with the zipper of my jeans open. Fortunately, an older woman let me know!

  47. I was at the spa and i stood up from lounging on a leather sofa and my skin must of still been damp from my treatment so i stuck a little to the leather and it made the loudest noise that sounded just like a real poop. Everyone stared at me and my best friend burst out laughing. I really blushed and said it was the chair but i dont think anyone believed me. lol x

  48. I was in such a rush to get to work one day last week that I only put eyeliner and mascara on one eye by accident which gave me a pretty much one eyed look! haha.. one of my friends had to point it out to me and i quickly dashed off to the bathroom to make repairs 1/2 way thru the day! πŸ˜€

  50. Julie Booth says:

    moaning in the office about how much room obese people take up on planes (as I was crushed between two of them on a middle seat a few weeks ago) when a very large work colleague strolled in just as I was ranting. She is lovely too, so I felt awful!
