10 Basic Trends 2014 Can Keep

First and foremost, 2015 is going to be your year! I can feel it!

I mean I can't literally feel it, but I am sure you're a really nice person and deserve the new year to be great. In the hopes of achieving that success and getting things on the right track, let's all agree to say goodbye to the following 10 things. Like American Idol, Grey's Anatomy and Glee, they had their time in the sun, but let's face it, it's over.

1) "Bye Felicia"
This is a hard one, a well-timed "Bye Felicia" is hilarious, but this throwback to a 1995 movie has definitely run its course.

2) Fireball
This cinnamon whiskey dominated bars this summer. It may taste better than some liquor but... a friend of a friend told me it gives terrible hangovers and quite frankly once something has been recalled for health reasons in a few countries I think I'll pass.

3) Tapered sweatpants
I can't believe I even had to write that. What person wearing comfortable baggy sweatpants thought, "I wish these were tapered?" No, No to all of this.

4) Hating Taylor Swift
Remember when Olivia Munn was like totally weird and rude to her on stage when she won her People's choice award in 2013? Remember Kanye West? That's how you look now when you hate on the Swift. Accept it, love her and I'll see you at the concert.

5) Gluten free
Some people are truly gluten intolerant, but for most gluten is fine and those who cut it out for weight loss purposes often can gain weight. Gluten free doesn't mean it's any healthier.

6) Snapchat
I still don't get its purpose; why not just send me a picture? Stop trying to make Snapchat happen, it's not going to happen.

7) Slouchy beanies
I am not sure how this became a thing, are you storing something back there? Like your sense of style? I'll take a well fitted beanie please.

8) Metrosexuals
Everything about this is over, way over. From excessive manscaping to wearing girl jeans. Embrace being a guy and be a Lumbersexual.

9) Food Pictures on Social Media
Nobody cares... just stop.

10) Twerking
No explanation needed. Maybe it's time to bring back the Macarena? Or the Twist?

These are all of course my humble opinion. Feel free to make your own list. Happy New Year!
