5 Fashion Trends That Need to Die in 2019 - Spring

As much as I love fashion there are many trends that I completely wish would never happen. These are some of the trends that I don't understand why they are "in" and I hope they go out by the back door really soon... Please don't spend your savings on these trends as they are very fast fashion and not worth making room in your closet for.

1. Pearl Hair Clips

If I see another girl posting a selfie on Instagram showing off her oversized pearl hair clip I will flip out! I don't understand how this trend came around and why would anyone want to have an oversize hair clip on their head... I just find it distasteful and too generic... Not worth the hype

2. 90's chokers 

These truly made a comeback last summer and I don't understand why this trend is still lingering onto this spring... If you were not a teenager in the 90's why would you purchase one now... This trend was cute last summer but now it's just old... like actually old.

3. Neon...

I've never been a fan of neon... because it hurts my eyes! If you're not an aerobics teacher from the 80's why should you own a pair of neon biker shorts... really? Why?!? Neon colors were only meant to be functional colors to warn something... not to alarm people of your poor fashion taste..They simply attract the wrong attention...

4. Dad Sneakers... Ugly Sneakers

These dad sneakers or ugly sneakers were trending last summer...but they shouldn't have a comeback this spring... please use them for gardening or give them away to salvation army but don't wear them proudly around the city as if you're the next trend setter... It's not worth the money! The only acceptable "chunky" sneakers that are worth getting are the Nike Tekno as they are actually comfortable and worth the price.

 5. Lucite Shoes...

PVC shoes.... lucite shoes... see through pumps whatever you may call them they are all passé...Last year this was cool because Kim Kardashian was rocking her yeezy see through pumps but now it's totally not worth the pain or the bad odor or the ugly feet...PVC shoes are terrible for your feet and for the environment.... Your feet look all yellow and foggy... Please let your feet breathe this summer!

My New Love :)

If you've clicked the link to read a deep article on my love life than I'm sorry to deceive you...My new love for a while now has been my parrot! To celebrate Valentines, and since it's been a while that I've published... I thought it would be a great time to share my love story with Coco! 

I met him this summer, and I instantly fell in love with this little green ball. He was 3 months old, and I would visit him every week until he was strong enough to bring him home. When I first started telling people that I got a parrot, I had many weird looks.. Apparently having a bird isn't common... I love dogs, not so much cats but why not have a bird as a pet! I've always loved birds, they are quite underestimated by people. Birds are very curious, intuitive and sociable creatures...They are the closest animals related to dinosaurs!

Coco is a Quaker parrot, and he has the ability to talk. So far he has learned at least 30 words and he is not even a year old. He is very playful, docile, and enjoys being part of the conversation. Unlike other birds he doesn't sing much, he mainly chit chats throughout the day, and screams to warn or when he's scared. Hopefully he will live up to 18 -20 years, and will endure my lifestyle ;) Getting a parrot or any pet is  big commitment, and I take that responsibility very seriously. If you don't have time for a pet, please don't get one! Coco requires time, and a lot of attention. He is still in training mode so it's important for me spend valuable time with him. 

Anyways he is absolutely adorable, I'm so happy that he's part of my life. You can see some of our adventures on Instagram :)
