A YOUNG woman has chosen eating crisps as the main way she will be enjoying this year’s supposed ‘hot girl summer’.
Nikki Hollis, 27, has decided to ignore articles and social media posts advising her to buy expensive beauty products, floaty summer dresses and buckets of Aperol Spritz in favour of splashing out on sharing bags of Walkers.
Hollis said: “I hear the phrase ‘hot girl summer’ constantly, but no one seems to know what it actually means. It crops up a lot in women’a magazines alongside features about this season’s hottest open-toed sandals which makes me suspicious that it’s just capitalist bullshit for idiots, like all other so-called ‘trends’.
“So, instead of getting involved in that, I’m going to spend the summer eating crisps in front of the telly. The only sun I’ll be seeing this year is the one beating down on the contestants of Love Island, while I inhale bags of Monster Munch.
“Am I limiting myself when all my friends will be out living their best lives? Maybe. But Megan Thee Stallion, who invented the phrase, says that being a ‘hot girl’ is about being unapologetically you.
“Which for me is not being ashamed about stuffing down half a kilo of Dorito’s Chilli Heatwave, and then licking the bags afterwards.”
