One of my favorite activities to do is research upcoming trends to stay on top of the fashion world. The trends I will be sharing with you all are a mix of my predictions and what I have pulled together from runway shows and online articles. I have placed the trends in order of what I believe are the most prominent and important trends to know this upcoming spring/summer season.

Saturated Colors: Think of a box of crayola crayons. Now think about what the colors look like in a typical box. Well, color is going to be huge this season, not just any color though, bright colors like blues, greens, reds, and yellows. In my opinion, the best trendy way to wear bright colors is to pair them together. What I mean by this is wearing red on red or blue on blue, it will really make your look different and make you stand out.

Americana: Who doesn't LOVE to show some American pride? This season it's time to bring out the red/blue and stars/stripes. There are so many fun ways to pair these colors together like wearing a sheer red shirt with a denim skirt. Stars will be found on shorts, shoes, and even earrings but are a great way to add spice to your outfit. Stripes will also be found on pants, blazers, etc to give an outfit some extra flare.

Tassel Earrings: Tassel earrings can be preppy but fear not! These can go with any style this season and add a statement to an outfit. I recommend wearing them with a dainty necklace and jumpsuit.

Mixed Prints: This is one of the coolest trends I saw on the runway this season. I'm talking about mixing florals and polka dots, stripes and stars, but on ONE item of clothing. The pants in the picture below incorporate polka dots and flowers, in a subtle, contemporary way.

Ruffles: Ruffles add a feminine touch to any outfit and look so cute paired with even more ruffles or masculine pieces.

Funky Sunglasses: Sunglasses are always a hot trend to stay on top of! Small shades are this seasons style and especially ones with colored frames and black lenses. 

Denim on Denim: Denim never dies! This season, pair denim jeans with a jean jacket for a fresh, trendy look.

Fanny Packs: It's music festival season! That means lots of fanny packs will be coming out as they are easy to carry around and keep your belongings safe anywhere you go. 

Jumpsuits: Even though the jumpsuit trend started a couple years ago, they have grown rapidly as a closet necessity. They are easy to throw on and can be dressed up with heels for going out or dressed down with some sneakers for a casual look.

Solid-Color Wedges: Wedges that are all one color are the new in sandal style for the summer. Wedges are comfortable and can be paired perfectly with a pair of fun boyfriend jeans or flowy pants for a more beauty look.

These are all of my favorite trends for spring and summer of 2018! Let's rock them together and make sure to check out my latest YouTube video showcasing all of the trends.

    The bacterial type of folliculitis is an infection of the sebaceous glands.

    1. Nootropic foods

      Nootropics or “smart drugs” are dietary supplements or drugs that claim to improve cognitive function. Some nootropics, such as caffeine and piracetam, are well known and have been studied for years. Others, such as aniracetam and oxiracetam, are newer options with fewer studies. Still others, such as mecamylamine and phenylpiracetam, have not been studied at all. In this blog post, we will learn how nootropics can be consumed as food and what are these nootropic foods.

    1. CBT for insomnia

      Cognitive behavior therapy for insomnia, or CBT-I, is a type of talk therapy that has been shown to be an effective treatment for chronic insomnia. CBT-I involves identifying and changing the thoughts and behaviors that may be causing or maintaining the chronic insomnia disorder. It typically includes both cognitive techniques, such as identifying and challenging negative thoughts about sleep, and behavioral techniques, such as setting a regular sleep schedule and avoiding bedtime distractions. CBT-I can be delivered either in person or over the phone. The initial session lasts about 1.5 hours and is repeated every week for a total of three to five sessions. In this blog post, we will learn more about CBT for insomnia. Read more here

  10. What are nootropic foods?

    Foods called nootropics have been demonstrated to enhance cognitive function. They can be divided into two groups: neuroprotective agents and nutraceuticals. The reason nutritional supplements are less well-liked than neuroprotectants is that they are frequently bulky and challenging to take regularly. Vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other phytonutrients are examples of neuroprotective agents. Click here for more
