Enough is enough, from thigh gaps, to bikini bridges and now the belly button challenge. The belly button challenge is a new body trend flooding social media. I am not talking about a stylish, fashion trend that everyone should follow. Instead the belly button challenge proves that society sucks. It’s believed that this trend started in China. No matter where it started it has made an unwanted appearance on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook pages. The idea of this challenge is suppose to indicate if you need to lose weight. If your right arm is able to reach the left side of your navel from your back, you are thin and healthy. Completely bogus! I am not a health or fitness expert but I do have a brain and I know that touching your belly button does not prove if one is healthy.

Coloring your hair is all the rage now. Bright colored hair is not just for punk rockers or circus clowns; instead women of all ages are experimenting with new color dyes for their hair. The bright colored hair trend is especially popular among celebrities, like Kylie Jenner, Hilary Duff, Katy Perry, and Nicole Richie. Celebs are embracing beautiful shades of pink, blue, and purple.

It is officially spring and how I wish the weather could be warmer and sunnier. I have never been so happy to see grass. To be honest, I almost forgot what grass looked like after our long snowy winter. Now that it is spring, it is time to embrace the spring trends. One of my favorite things to do is visit my favorite clothing stores, view their products, and figure out what trends are popular this season. After countless visits to my favorite stores and many hours spent online shopping, I have come up with a list of the trendiest of trends for spring 2015. Take a look at what follows to see what I’m thinking.  1. Fringe Hands down, fringe is one of my favorite trends this season. Fringe resembles that boho chic style, of which I am a huge fan. I love how you can incorporate this trend into any part of your outfit. Think sweaters, kimonos, jackets, purses, and of course necklaces. 2. 70s Vibe When I think of 1970s fashion, I think bohemian and disco.
