The Trends To Keep In 2017
By Clare EvansI've never been much of a gambler. In fact, I've only made two bets in my 26 years.Once on a horse at the Grand National that – much like me when faced with running – decided not to start. And once in a Euros sweepstake at work. My team was Spain. In my limited football knowledge, I thought I was on for the win but they didn't even make it past the qualifiers.However, if you asked me to gamble on which fashion trends we’ll be sticking with in 2017 (well, that feels weird to type!) and which we’ll be throwing on the scrap heap, it’s a whole lot easier. Let’s just say, all bets are off.Trends to Stick WithWith January officially here, now’s not the time to be buying a whole new wardrobe. So it’s good news that there are some key trends from the past 12 months that you’ll be pleased to know are sticking around:1. LoungewearYes girls, the casj trend is set to be very much alive and kicking in 2017. While it’s still not socially acceptable to rock up to the office in your dressing gown, mixing casual and more luxe pieces is still going to be big news next year. Think gym to drinks
Sunday Girl: Hailee Steinfeld
We've struggled to stop singing her hit 'Starving' and now she's top of our style crush list too. Think feminine vibes in soft powder blue shades and nude heels.
Drop It Like A Squat
Christmas is over and the chocolate has well and truly been devoured. Which means it's time to dust off your trainers and get back to your fave morning HIIT class. You can do it put your back into it, right? (Even if you have to snooze a few times!)
Fashion Moments That Made 2016
Another year, another 365 days of fashion good and bad. Here's six moments that made us 'OMG' this 2016.
Apps That'll Make Your Life Easy AF
By Lucia Santos Being 2017, it's only expected that our lives pretty much are now run by technology. Gone are the days of using a diary that organised our life, and welcome the new days of our laptops, phones and tablets making our daily routines a bit easier. To make life even more stress free, the technology Gods out there have created life changing Apps that will make your day (and life) 10x better. AroundMeIf you’ve ever been to a new place and lost countless hours walking around trying to find a bank, or a cinema or even a restaurant that looks like it serves some good grub, AroundMe is the answer to all your problems. By simply clicking on one of their many options, for examples ‘bars’, the app lists all near you. It also tells you the distance, reviews, and gives you all the contact details you need. It connects with google maps to also show you how to get to your chosen destination, perfect!Dinner SpinnerA food focused app that helps you not only find inspiration for your latest dishes, but you can also share your creations. Your feed is personalised and the app does this for you based on what you like over time! The fun part is that you can pick a dish type, what ingredients you have or want to use, then the time it takes to cook and then the app does all the hard work and finds dishes for you to cook. You then can see calories, ingredients, instructions, and then others reviews and photos!FocusNowThis app is for pretty much anyone, and we all could definitely benefit from it. The basis of the app is for you to not get distracted by your phone. You decide how long it will take for your tree to grow and click start to begin the life cycle, but if you go off of the app and play on your phone, unfortunately your tree dies. You can increase the time from 25 minutes, to however long you need to focus, and watch yourself build a small tree farm in the long run. With inspiring messages such as ‘I grow, you grow’ you definitely can resist playing on your phone and focus on either work, study or just real life social interaction instead.My Fitness PalLiterally everyone I know has either got this app, used this app or swears by this app. My fitness pal works with you to reach your fitness goals. You let the app know how much weight you want to lose, and it suggests your daily calorie intake. You then record what you eat throughout the day sticking to the required intake. It also has a strong community, where you can share your journey on either on social media or directly on the app for some motivation!Spending TrackerSpending tracker allows you to input your income and any expenses, then it works out your balance for you. You then can add expenses as you go and categorise them. This helps you to see how much you actually do spend and where your money is going. Great organisation all done for you!WunderlistPerfect to record all your to-dos! You choose and create and categorise your own lists and add to-dos to each one. You can also sync to others who have Wunderlist and are collaborating on the same tasks as you. It also gives you notifications to remind you about your to-dos! The easy to use app will make your organisation on top form.Sleep CycleI still do not understand the magic behind this app, but it analyses your sleep and wakes you up at the perfect time for your sleep cycle. When the alarm goes off, you do not need to swipe or tap your phone frantically, instead either tap your bed side table or whatever your phone is on twice, or just simply pick up your phone. Life Changing!Brain.fmIf you’re finding it hard to focus whilst listening to your favourite tunes, try Brain.fm! The App has formulated music designed for your brain by combining music with auditory neuroscience, serious stuff. There are options for focus music, mediating, and sleeping. This will make your life so much easier by having a focus playlist ready for when you are.Zombie, Run!If you’re like me and hate any form of exercising, this makes running fun. Yes, I did say fun. Hear me out here, this app puts you into a dystopia world where zombies have taken over. You are now a runner en route to one of humanity’s ‘last remaining outpots’. On your route you will save others, pick up supplies and complete missions whilst listening to instructions through your headphones. You also can form training plans, interval training, or even race.Image credit: Unsplash
