What will become of fashion blogs

CoronaVirus has completely changed the world. The fashion industry is one of the main industries affected by COVID-19 pandemic. For now, gone are the days of fashion shows, and even shopping on the high street isn’t for everyone with the new rules and regulations. Plus, with the current state of the economy, going on a shopping spree is probably the last thing on many people’s minds. Shopping is now down to necessity rather than a luxury. Which makes me wonder what will become of fashion blogs in these uncertain times.

The high street is disappearing.

Many high street giants are closing shops in many locations all over the world. Our local Dorothy Perkins recently announced they were closing down the store for good after 30 years of being in town. Debenhams, M&S, and many more have announced job cuts and store closures all over the UK. The current state of events makes me wonder what will become of fashion blogs. If stores are closing down and people are losing jobs, will showcasing new pieces/accessories make sense? What will happen to blogs and websites that only feature personal style posts?

The pandemic is definitely going to affect every content creator. Let’s face it; life has changed and adjustments have to be made. The UK is officially now in a recession. Many people are now more interested in content that would help them, rather than simply entertain them.

Blog how you want!

At the end of the day, our blogs and social media platforms are our little corners on the internet. There is the freedom to create whatever and whenever you want as long as it is legal. I won’t share certain content on here because of what is going on in the world. My approach to blogging has changed over the years, and me having a lifestyle blog allows me to write about whatever I want to write about. I am thankful to have that creative freedom. If Fashion and Style Police stayed as a pure fashion blog like how it started, I would have been in a very bad situation now. I know some bloggers have had to sell their blogs which is sad. Luckily, I decided to go down the lifestyle blogging route within a few months of blogging.

What will become of fashion blogs?

I really don’t know. I stopped reading pure fashion blogs when I stopped blogging just fashion. Instagram seems to be the place for showcasing fashion and style, and I see more than enough on there. I wonder what will become of fashion blogs.

 

 

Will you be shopping the high street?

The shops officially open today – 15th June 2020, here in the UK for non-essential shopping. Will you be shopping on the high street? I am not one to window shop so this question is very easy for me to answer. I won’t be shopping the high street but will carry on with my online shopping as usual. Going to the shops is always a drag for me, especially with the kiddies. I rather just shop online conveniently from the comfort of my home and online shopping is even more appealing in times like this when we are dealing with a pandemic.

The new COVID-19 guidelines for the shops opening have been announced. High street shops are expected to implement relevant hygiene and social distancing measures to protect customers and staff. Shops like Marks & Spencer and Ikea will be imposing restrictions on the number of customers in the stores, which is good to know. Clothes fitting and make-up section will not be available to customers, which is understandable. I never liked trying on clothes in stores, so I won’t miss that bit at all, but I know a good number of people will struggle with the fact that these facilities are no longer available for now.

Will it work?

It will be interesting to see how the first week of non-essential shopping goes. Will people go shopping or not? I wonder if the social distancing and relevant hygiene measures will be adhered to in the shops. This is all brand new and you never know how it will all look like in practice. I also wonder how the actual shopping will go. Will customers be allowed to touch the goods or not? I will be keeping my eyes open on social media to catch up on the news on that. Twitter is my favourite social media platform for anything newsworthy.

 

 

Makeup Review – LOLA Makeup Foundation & Powder

I have another makeup review post for the makeup lovers. This time, it is LOLA Makeup Picture Perfect Liquid Foundation and Matte Silky Finish Pressed Powder.

LOLA Makeup Picture Perfect Liquid Foundation

I like my foundation as light weight as possible. I am not a fan of the heavy foundation or “cakey” look, so the lighter the foundation, the better.

Here is the product description of this LOLA Makeup Picture Perfect Liquid Foundation –

 

Beautifully lightweight and comfortable to wear, this radiant-finish foundation feels like a second skin.

An innovative pearlescent powder visibly corrects skin imperfections by reflecting broad-spectrum light whilst keeping the skin looking natural and fresh.

It also boasts oil absorbing properties which help minimise shine. The final result is perfect skin that looks like it’s been airbrushed and is front cover ready!
