Trends I just can’t get on with

I’ve always been a bit of a trendsetter, rather than a trend follower. Lol, jokes. I’m neither. I just like what I like and don’t care if it’s in or not. Unless it’s hard to get hold of. Like in winter when there are no cute floral dresses in sight. It gives me sadness.

There are many trends that really annoy me. The type where people go over the top with them, I just can’t. Here are some of them.

Yeah, unicorns are cute. It’s magical, I can see the appeal, but can we stop now? Why are fully grown women getting tattoos of unicorns on them? It’s too much.


This isn’t a trend that annoys me, more of something I can never understand. I don’t like tattoos and I’m sorry if you have one. It’s a bit awkward when people show me their new tattoo and I have to pretend to like it. I mostly just say sorry, I don’t like tattoos. If you a picture of something just hang it on your wall?


I pluck my brows maybe once a month. I’ve seen people say they can spend 40 mins doing their eyebrows in a morning? I’m very sorry, but I never take notice of people’s brows and it just seems like a waste of time to me? Maybe on special occasions, I can justify it – but every day?

Mannequin Challenge.

A manager at work said we should do this. LOL NO. It’s stupid. Like, the first one is always good. Not that I watched it. But when everyone and their dog (literally!) are doing it, I’m like LOL go get a personality.

Those tag friend memes.

Mostly seen on Facebook, tag a friend and don’t say anything. Or those ‘these girls will get married this year’ and a list of 10 generic female names.

Clickbait shit. Go away.

There are, however, some obsessions I can get on.

These include wine, gin, CHEESE, Netflix, Candy Crush calling my BFF BAE, overusing YOLO and the totally British ‘beer and BBQ as soon as the sun comes out’.

There are also obsessions I once got on but now regret.

Pokemon go, cat obsession, overusing the Facebook Poke.

What trends do you love and hate?


  1. I’m totally with you on this one! I am always saying that I don’t get why people are so obsessed with eyebrows. Maybe it’s because I am not into beauty the way other people are but I honestly just don’t understand why it’s so important to have beautiful eyebrows. I’m totally into binge watching Netflix though!

  2. I agree with everything you said. Unicorns, why? It’s a bit strange for anybody over 20 to have a tattoo with unicorns. I think tattoos should be special and meaningful. But it’s not my body, so not my problem. 🙂

  3. I agree with everything you`ve said. I don`t know if it`s a trend or not, but one thing that drives me mad is applying your makeup with whatever thing you have in the house. Or using a spoon/USB/dirty socks to create the perfect crease for your eye makeup. Can we just stop already?

  4. Ah yes, cheese and wine are THE BEST. I have to admit I’m a bit obsessed with my eyebrows but only because I barely have any and I have to draw them in… if I can get them remotely symmetrical it’s a victory but cba really beyond that!

  5. I love the cute unicorn stuff but don’t want any unicorn tattoo. Or any tattoo. I made unicorn cakes that were ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS, drank the unicorn latte and also bought pretty unicorn eyeshadow THAT I LOVE. 😀

  6. The unicorn obsession I really don’t get and who has forty minutes for eyebrows not me. This made for fun reading Lucy x
