|Me and my oldest son Jack in our Georgia Bulldog gear for the first football game of the 2010 season! I am so glad that the school I cheer for has a great color combination of red and black. Super flattering;-)|
I've recently had some time to catch up on a lot of my fall magazines and celeb gossip magazines while in the hospital and at home with my new baby. So I was shocked after reading through these magazines because of all the similarities in articles and trends that reflect some of my older blogs!
I have tons of examples of how it looks like my September Allure & US Weekly just scanned through JSM (JennySue Makeup) and came up with their September issue!! Just click on my highlighted links within each number to take you to my articles/posts that I did looong before this magazine came out.
I will preface all of this by saying, NO I am not delusional enough to REALLY think that these magazines would copy anything that I say, I just find it cool/ironic that their most recent articles mimic old/past blogs of mine. But I do give myself a pat on the back for forecasting some of these things:-)
#1. This was the most blatant form of copycat. My blog from 2009, "What can brown eyeshadow do for you" which I know I know, I got the tag line from the company UPS, however, check out Allure's article above! Wow- a year too late Allure, JSM, been there done that!!
#2. Fuschia lipstick trend. This was a post I did back in May 2010 after I discovered the bright and happy color of fuschia for my lips. And whatdaya know, Allure talked about the fall makeup trend of matte fuschia lips. Is this getting weird yet??
#3. We'll give Allure a break, and focus on US Weekly who did a trend watch not too long ago on celebs working the braided headband trend. Well, JSM did that look back in May 2010 also. I was rocking the headband braid long before this US article. How's that for fashion forecasting??!
#4. The military influence for fall 2010 is all over the magazines, I mean, everywhere. And the dog tag jewelry look goes right along with this fashion trend. Well, I happen to be wearing mine today! Although they're my "Mommy Tags" which have my children's names and birthdates engraved on them along with a center tag that reads "bebe love." the Gucci ones shown in the Allure mag are really cool, I think my mommy tags are way more meaningful and unique to my family- therefore making them worth more to me than this designer brand!! Oh, and I got them over two years ago, so once again, I'm way ahead of the trend!! Are you getting sick of my gloating yet- hahahaha!
So are you impressed with how many trends I had already spoken about before these magazines were even on newsstands?? Well, even if you're not impressed, hopefully you enjoyed reading this anyway. And maybe picked up a trend or two you'd like to follow this fall!
