Become That Trendy Friend

*Collaborative post.

Everyone has a trendy friend. The one that could literally put on a bin bag and pull it off. Well, that might have been a bit of an exaggeration, but you get the point. When you’re not that trendy friend, you honestly do feel like you can’t put an outfit together without going through a whole evening of stress. But there’s one big key to this here. A lot of it comes from self confidence, and the image you build up of yourself.

You’ve got that one trendy friend, because they’ve always been into their fashion and showing it off. So no matter what they wear, you can’t help but feel like they look amazing. But you could be the same, as long as you know what’s on trend at the minute, and that you have a little self confidence. But self confidence is one of the biggest things that people seem to lack, and that’s where it becomes so hard to find something that you think suits you, because nothing seems to suit you in your own mind. So this article is going to be all about making you that trendy friend.

We’re going to give you some tips to make you more self confident, show you what’s on trend at the minute, and throw in a bit of a beauty tip to help make you feel amazing! Keep on reading to find out more…

Self Confidence Tips

So, before you think about what clothes you’re going to wear, and what might suit you, you’re going to have to address some of these insecurities that you have. It’s so bad that so many of us are walking around right now, thinking about what people might think about us. Or how we start our day by looking in the mirror, and wondering why we were made the way we are. It’s crazy to think this, because every human is different. Every single person has a flaw that they hate, yet due to social media and all of the influencers who look perfect on there, we’re made to believe we shouldn’t have a flaw at all. But the truth is, if you were to see half of the people up close, you wouldn’t be thinking what you are now.

Instagram is so fake and filtered. So rather than starting your day by looking in the mirror and thinking eurgh, start it by thinking about how beautiful you are in your own way. If you have that confidence to carry around with you, you’re already so much more attractive than half of the people you see on Instagram and other social media platforms! If you do feel like you have something that you really want to work on, perhaps you really want to tone up for the summer, then dig deep and find the motivation to do it. We’re so good as humans at wanting a better figure, better hair, or better anything, but procrastinating around the subject!

 

The Top Summer Fashion Trends

Summer fashion is the best kind of fashion. Some of you might disagree with this and prefer all of the warm winter wear, but we can’t help but feel that summer fashion brings out a different side of people.  But if you want to be that trendy friend, you’re going to need some top trend tips. Tip number one, summer dresses are always going to be in. There’s nothing better than going out on a hot summer’s day, with your summer dress on, and just loving life. They’re so easy to accessorise with, and the best part is it goes so well with trainers.

Nike air force 1’s are really on trend at the minute, and there’s so many different styles that you could go for. You can see more nike air force 1 on the internet than you would in the shop, so get browsing! A nice simple summer dress, some sunglasses, and a little bag is all that’s needed to complete that trendy look. Simple and effortless is the way forward this summer!

A Few Beauty Tips

So finally, it’s all well and good having your fashion on point, but if you’re not really confident with the beauty side of things, then that needs to change. One of the best beauty tips we can give, is to make sure that you’re getting into a good morning routine. A nice cleanser, a nice moisturiser, and a foundation that actually suits your skin. The cakey dark look is so out right now, it’s the natural medium cover foundations that are so in. A simple natural look is so much more attractive than that heavy foundation look at the minute!

The ultimate colour guide for your home decor

*Collaborative post.

 Is your home looking a bit drab and dreary? If so, you might want to consider changing up the colour scheme to brighten up and bring some life back into your living space. Choosing colours for your interior can be a difficult job, as you need to make sure you pick the right shades to maximise and enhance the look of your home.

To enable you to select the right colour palettes, you should take a look at this guide which will make the decorating process much easier.

 

Neutral shades

One of the most popular interior palettes is definitely neutral shades like white, beige, ivory, nude, grey and more, which are popularly used in plenty of modern spaces. These colours can be used to decorate the whole room, or as base layers to compliment brighter shades. You can use variations of these colours in any room of your home, although the living room and dining room are more synonymous with these shades, as these areas of the house are seen as neutral ground.

Property companies like RW Invest have embraced the all-natural look in their offerings by using light-coloured neutrals like white and ivory to create contemporary style apartments. These attract a wide range of tenants, although they are especially popular with young professionals who prefer modern and airy city-centre apartments.

 

 

 

Pastel palettes

If you want to lighten up your space, especially now the summer months are in play, you should take a look at soft some pastel colours. This could include hues of baby blue, light pink, peach, lime and more. You could start small by introducing pastel-coloured cushions or ornaments, which will add character to any room in your home.

Pastel shades work well in rooms like the kitchen or bathroom, where you can update your neutral-style cabinets with blue and green hues. This is not only a great way to enhance your property but is also a much more eco-friendly solution, as you can avoid throwing out a good piece of furniture. By using the colours, you can also make even the smallest kitchen look spacious, which is every homeowner’s dream. This is also a great way to update a more traditional style kitchen, as the lighter palettes will create a more modern feel.

Bold hues

 If you really want to brighten up your home, you should go bold with shades of purple, yellow, or even red. These colours are perfect for rented apartments which tend to look like show homes, as adding a brighter shade will make your home more personalised. Some landlords do not allow walls to be painted, so if this is the case, you can purchase furnishings and ornaments that will enhance even the most drab-looking room.

Using a bright colour like yellow may seem daring and should not be used in just any room, as it can appear overpowering.Yellow works well in a breakfast room, where you can start your day on a high with striking decor. Try to avoid using this colour in the bedroom, as this an energising colour which may work well in the morning but not so good at night when you need a good night’s rest.

 

How do you decide on the colour guide for your home decor?
