Trends I Don't Get

I am rarely on-trend. I've always had strong opinions about things and they tend to vary from the 'norm' a lot of the time. So don't be offended by this list. Clearly, these trends are all so popular, I am the oddball for not getting them.

So here they are in no particular order...

Gourmet Junk-food shops

The biggest food trend in Toronto right now seems to be over-the-top ice cream goodies. Like I mean cones piled full of doughnuts, candy, etc.

For a full list of these silly places, read here.

If you want savoury over-the-top garbage, there's also a place for that.

My belief is that the people who gravitate towards this kind of stuff, the stuff that is the exact opposite of what we should be eating, do it as an act of rebellion. Only problem is, the only one who suffers is you!

These Birkenstocks (and all the knockoffs)

It seems like virtually every female these days has a pair of these shoes. No offence, but I think they are the ugliest shoes ever made. I know people say Birks are super comfortable, but I can't stand thong sandals of any kind. Having anything wedged between my toes is super uncomfortable for me.

These are so popular though, I play a game with them. Each time I am in public, I see how long it is before I see someone wearing them. I have yet to NOT find someone.


Okay dog lovers, calm down, I don't hate these dogs or anything, but I just don't find them particularly cute. Sorry! In general, I am a cat person, but there are several types of dogs I love and anything with 'doodle' in it, is not included in that list. I don't find curly haired dogs cute. I just don't. Yes, I am sure if I owned one, I'd fall in love with its personality, but on a looks basis, meh! My preference is for short-haired dogs and particularly Labs, Pugs, Frenchies, and Chihuahuas.

Short Shorts

I don't care how skinny, fit, or sexy you are, I find short shorts very unattractive. I think they make people's bodies look disproportional. Miley Cyrus, Exhibit A:

Worse is jean shorts with pockets hanging out the bottom. Miley Cyrus, Exhibit B:

Worst of all is if your arse is hanging out the bottom. Gross!

Hairy Men

You know how I feel about this, but I have to say it again because this stupid trend is still around: men with long hair, bushy beards, etc. are disgusting. Blech! I love my gorgeous, short haired, clean shaven husband!

If you are unfamiliar with these trends, well maybe they are just Toronto things. At least now, if you aren't from Toronto, you have an idea of what you'll see here. Ha!
