It has happened again. I said I hated a new trend and then I fell for it. Personality? What’s that? In my defense I have to say that I’m not in love with the whole 70’s trend in general… I still hate flares. But those boho, flowy dresses? Those, those I love! Continue reading
Haven’t you noticed a huge increase in people who claim to be gluten intolerant? Why is that? Is it because our digestive system has changed? I’ve been browsing the internet for anwers (that’s super scientific, I know) and I have found out that celiac disease is four times more common today than a half-century ago. There are people who blame the wheat itself (extensive hybridization, oxidizers, new methods of yeasting, and other chemical processes. Yuck!) and others blame the increasingly clean environment, which reduces the number of factors that challenge and stimulate the developing immune system. So according to my intensive half an hour research, there is actually a reason for all the gluten free obsession nowadays.
But don’t you think some people… fake it? Is celiac disease trendy? While this could be a good thing because of the increased awareness and is leading to better stocked supermarkets, gluten free menus and even gluten free tourist guides, I’m really concerned about those who say they suffer from a very complicated disease when in fact they just need an excuse not to eat carbs. It’s like anorexia in the 90’s. It was supposed to be cool. Why does someone fake an illness? Even more when that illness involves… well, lots of poop. Speak with someone with Celiac disease and you’ll hear horror stories where bathrooms are the main setting. Is poop becoming fashionable then? Can sickness be a trend? Are we mad? Am I being too cynic?
Now, excuse me I have to leave. I’m baking some gluten free cookies.
Lately I’ve been seeing some nice messy pony tails embellished with cute bows. I don’t know if that can be considered a trend, a coincidence or just a nonsense, but I find it pretty charming. Or maybe childish, I’m still not sure about it. What do you think?
In case you like it, here you have a DIY and, well, Alexa is wearing it so maybe we should give it a try?
So we’ve seen lots and lots of statement necklaces lately and it seems that this Fall the statement earrings are going to be quite popular but… what do you think about brooches?
