Every year brings a new ‘in thing’ that we all desperately try our hands at, and either it becomes the best thing since sliced bread, or we sack it off quicker than a vegetarian with a new £5 note. (I hope any veggies laugh, that’s not meant to be mean I promise!).
This year has been no different to any other in bringing in more crazes than we know what to do with, but because we all know I love to make fun of myself, here’s a handful of the ones that I flopped at miserably.
Adult Colouring Books
Here’s the thing: I love colouring and have a bunch of books, and there’s a few more I’ve got my eye on, but I NEVER find the time to do it, and I also don’t find it at all relaxing! I think the books I have are way too intricate, and as I’m not particularly artistic, I could do with some simpler ones..
I loved the idea of bullet journalling, but I’ve started two this year and neither of them lasted very long.. I think the problem is that I already have a diary/planner that works very well for me, so having to put a lot of time into keeping a Bu-Jo pretty just didn’t really fit too well into my schedule.
For the first time ever, I made an attempt to contour my face. Yes, a single attempt. I either did a poor job of it (more than likely) or it just made no effect on my face (very unlikely), but the effort I put in to not look like Kendall Jenner by the end of it had me like MEH.
I love Pokemon, and I thought about downloading the app that’s caused all kinds of a stir across the world this year, but I just never did.. I’d love to get it for when I’m out running, but I think I’d get too easily distracted, and I’m really not that much of a gamer.
I know nothing about Honey G
I never watch X-Factor, but this chick seems to have caused a real stir on the scene this year. Can I be bothered to watch any clips of her? Nope.
Once again, this series hit the screens and everyone was buzzed for it, but I’ve never watched it before and I don’t really get it
I don’t know how this became a YouTube sensational craze, but I’ve had to sit and watch my cousins try it 50+ times and I don’t feel any need to attempt it.
Now I know I can be a bit of a beauty dunce, but surely as soon as you put lipstick into a tube with a wand, its not really a lipSTICK anymore? The world seems to have fallen in love with them this year, but I’ve just been sticking to my real-stick faves
What are your favourite things to hit the scene this year?
