The trends I've taken on

I think we'd all agree that different trends come in and out on a regular basis, I mean at the moment it's all about the corset over a t-shirt look which I'm not sure I get but hey, maybe it'll grow on me.. Anyway there are a few trends that I definitely am a fan of and have been sporting myself for the past few moths.


Fashion: On the fashion front for me it's been all about two things, velvet and mesh. Both are styles which I would never have incorporated in my clothes before, but have recently been doing and loving. For velvet I've been wearing a boxy crop top in either a burgundy or really light pink shade (I got both as I loved the top so much) from Primark which was about £4. I really like this top and I love how soft the velvet feels when you stroke it.

Mesh probably being my favourite trend of the two is my favourite to wear. I have a plain black mesh top from Miss Guided that was £8 which I love to wear with a crop top, bralette or sports bra underneath. I think that mesh is really easy to style and I've been loving seeing that it's being incorporated in to lots of pieces recently.
Makeup: One thing I'm sure we can all agree has been a big trend for a while now are liquid lipsticks. They have fast become my favourite makeup product to own and I find myself constantly buying them to try out new shades and formulas. In particular I love the Nyx lingerie ones, Colourpop liquid lipsticks and the new Barry M lip paints.

Another makeup trend I've hopped on the bandwagon of is glittery eyeliner. I saw quite a lot of pictures where girls were rocking this on Instagram so I went out and bought two of the glitter eyeliners by Collection and have been doing it myself. I'll admit this isn't something I wear everyday but for a special occasion or if I'm feeling daring then I love this one!
Lifestyle: The one thing on Instagram everyone wants to get right? Flatlays. I've been trying to up my blogs Instagram game for a while and although I have by no means mastered the flatlay, and probably never will, I love taking them.
I would love to know if you've taken on any of these trends or if there are any others that you've started doing/wearing and as always, thanks for reading.

  1. I find flatlays impossible, they're hard to take and even harder to edit! I'm also loving velvet and mesh, I recently bought a black velvet top from Jack Wills in the sale and I adore it.

  5. I tried to love liquid lipstick but it just doesn't work for me. I'm not really the type to follow the trends, but if I like one I will take it on for sure.

    1. That's good, if something doesn't work for you there's no point in just having because everyone else does! X

  9. Loved this style of post! I have such a love-hate relationship with flatlays, I get so envious of other people's but despise my own!!
    I definitely want to get a mesh top, it's been on my list for ages but I've never found the perfect one but I'll definitely have a look on Missguided as that is such a bargain!!

  15. I've given up with Flatlays as I know I will never get it quite right as I'm too impatient! Liquid lipsticks have definitely become one of my favourite things as well, they are so good!
