My name is Isabella but I’ve spent about 99% of my life being called Elizabeth. I’ll introduce myself as Isabella and the person talking to me will proceed to call me Elizabeth. It’s gotten to a point I don’t even bother correcting anyone at this point.
I’m not even mad about it anymore but it does gets me steaming when someone is talking to me and proceeds to butcher the name of a product or a beauty brand or even a makeup store. I have priories. Getting makeup brand names right is way more important than getting my personal name correct! LOL!
Has it every happened to you? I know spent a lot of time spelling Bonne Bell as Bonnie Bell (and calling it Bonnie as well)!
I was laughing the other day when someone retweeted this and it appeared on my Twitter feed:
My mom just called @Sephora … Safari 😂😂😂

Thankfully enough my mom has never mispronounced Sephora but she has told friends, family, and strangers that her daughter (me) is on hotline. She means online…..! Needless to say it gets me a lot of strange looks. I guess people aren’t really understanding that I’m a blogger when she says this and she innocently doesn’t understand that’s she’s implying I’m more of a web cam girl or something.
I have to quickly rush to explain what it is she means before things spiral downhill! I hate to see what happens when I’m not around. I guess all her friends raise a brow and nod politely meanwhile, wondering what it is I am doing on “hotline”.
I’ve had a lot of people mispronounce brand names to me but none are more funnier than my dad who says Sephora wrong. He either calls is senora or cenora. I rarely get ticked off by this though! It makes me laugh versus makes me angry. And no matter how many times I correct him it’s still reverts back to senora. “Did you notice a new senora opened at the mall?” “Are you doing to senora?” “Did you want a senora gift card for your birthday?”
Have you ever had a friend, family member, or even a stranger mispronounce the name of your favorite beauty store or beauty brand?
