February was fabulous for fashion weeks around the world. Trending styles promise to bring sheer, satin and shine in bright bold colors and pastels. Patterned with Checks and mixed unexpected patterns, as well as being accented with fringes ruffles and plastic; yes, I said plastic.

Looks will be completed with multiple size bags and shoes in all the above-mentioned styles. I am a personal fashion week, as I am always in wonder of the various styles and talented designs. But this year I found my self-fascinated by the clean every day and wearable style of Ralph Lauren and the bold and strong Alexander Wang, as well as the passionate and elegant Nidal ( I couldn’t stop applauding after his Los Angeles show). If you missed any of the 2018 Spring/Summer fashion shows, I encourage you to head over to http://fashionweekonline.com, where you can catch up on many of the NYFW shows.

Makeup is also following the sparkling trend but, with a more subtle background. Bidding adieu to the bold brows, contoured fanatics and over highlighted disco effects. This season you will see more nearly naked skin. Cleaner and natural looks with softening lids, wings, and hints of glitter. Now, don’t be mistaken eyeshadow pallets will bring bold colors as well as the earth tones but, with a less overpowering effect. Lipgloss replaces the Matte madness, with coral tones and softer hues. Makeup will accentuate the natural beauty and skin care with dominate daily routines.

Fitness focuses forward. As we are approaching the end of 2018’s first quarter, don’t be frazzled if you did not meet your New Years resolution goals; summer won’t officially start until June. So break out your fashionable yoga pants, dust on a little sweat proof powder (with SPF) and keep going for your goal. Fitness is not a stranger to trends either. High-Intensity Interval Training or HIIT has been trending as the number one fitness routines this year. “A HIIT training session involves bursts of maximum-effort, very hard work (typically about 20 to 90 seconds), followed by a period of low-intensity recovery.”; according to Self Magazine (https://www.self.com/story/biggest-fitness-trends-of-2018). HIIT training is followed in popularity by group training and wearable technology.
