Trends I loved in 2012

Hey Everyone,
yesterday I did a post on trends that I think should stay in 2012 If you didn't see that you can HERE! So today I thought I would flip the topic and talk about... 
The trends I loved last year, so here they are:

1. Ombre 
Was still a huge trend in 2012... This time around not just for your hair but also for clothes, and nails as well! This is not something I'm bored of yet, and still would like to ombre my hair nearer the summer time!

2. Studs 
Studs whether conical or square where bang on trend last year with some form being on many clothes, shoes, and bags in almost any store... This year look out for them more in nail art form!

3. A Bold Lip 
Bright Lip stains, balms, and Lipsticks were huge in 2012 and I just loved this trend! Having never had the nerve before I started trying out pinks, before moving on to reds and plums!

4. Graphic Print T-shirt's and Sweatshirts
Text printed on t-shirt and bold graphic designs were huge for the casual chic trend last year, here's one of my personal favourite's!

5. Ciate Nails
This accent nail trend really took off in 2012 with Ciate becoming a popular brand, there advent calender for Christmas became a must have item with many beauty bloggers!

6. Flat boots
For shoe wear flat boots seemed to out weigh heels last year, whether a short Chelsea boot or a high equestrian style 

7. Dewy Glow and Highlight
2012 was all about leaving behind matte foundations and choosing a more natural dewy finish to the skin, Highlight also was key with products such as Mac's mineral soft and gentle, Benefit's Highbeam, and Topshop's cream glow, becoming popular choices with beauty bloggers everywhere!

What trends did you love in 2012?

  1. All of these trends were favourites of mine too, espeically the studs. That picture of the pink ombre nail is gorgeous! Definitely one I would love to try out. The bold lip trend is continuing for spring/summer 2013 so thankfully I stocked up on some red and bright pink lipsticks! :) xo

  3. Hi Hannah it's @staceysmum84 from Twitter. Thanks for sending me your blog link, it's absolutely fab. Now following.

    I would love to have a go at ombre nails! I think I'd be rubbish at it though haha. And I remember thinking that I'd never become a fan of dewy looking skin but I totally have! 2012 was a great year for beauty ... bring on 2013!

    1. I think the good thing about ombre nails is that they don't have to be perfect! If you click on the link below the picture I think there's a tutorial! :) x
