When I post trend predictions some people get offended. Some see it as a personal insult when I declare something to be over. But that is not really the point of me doing such thing.
So my declarations are no judgements of value, but only a simple constatation of facts. If you like your G&T, keep on drinking it. Sure. It makes you more cool than anyone who jumps from one trend to the next. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said; “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is still the greatest accomplishment.” But as a lifestyle blogger it is my duty to constantly spot the next big thing.
Also one little remark should be made here. I wholeheartedly hope that my favorite products never become a hype like G&T has. Because when that happens, it very frequently ruins the feeling you have with a product. Admit, when someone offers you a G&T these days, don't you just roll your eyes? Whereas a few months ago you would have eagerly accepted it. It's like a running crowd looking for something good, not noticing they are trampling the best thing they had because they are already looking the next one.
What are your thoughts? What value do you attach to trend reports?
Do you feel insulted when your favorite product ends up on an 'out' list?
Thx for reading!
