WTF Happened in 2015?

With the end of the year comes a lot of reminiscing - things that we loved, things we wish we'd have done different, things we laughed at, things we cried at, and everything in between. 2015 saw the birth of another baby royal, a general election, so much of Europe opening it's arms and homes to immigrants and a fantastic Rugby World Cup held in our own country. What a year!
 
But also, one shouldn't forget all the downright STUPID stuff that had us talking, speculating and obsessing . And there are a lot of them...


1. Black and blue or white and gold? That bloody dress. The conundrum that kept the nation up at night, I still can't help but feel wholly betrayed by my own eyes - that dress was white and gold, dammit! I have of course, provided the picture to send you all crazy again.

2. The Kardashian-Jenner clan. Remember Flappy Bird and that sausage rap? I thought the Kardashians would follow in their footsteps and end up in the same abyss as obsessions past, but 2015 has solidified their presence in the world and I'm almost certain that 2016 will see one of them as President of the US. Just you wait.

3. The "Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge". WHY WAS THIS A THING? This is the aforementioned impact that this family has on the world - they had girls all over the world sticking their faces in shot glasses to emulate the famous pout of Miss Jenner. Needless to say it did not succeed.

4. Snapchat Filters. The best thing to happen to photography. If you didn't vomit a rainbow you did 2015 wrong, my friend.

5. Man Buns. I have very little to say about this except can this just please stay in 2015? Not a fan at all, I'm afraid. If you are a fan, and this picture doesn't ruin it for you then I have nothing to say to you...

6. Justin Bieber. 2015 was the year that I became a Belieber. And proud. How can one man release so many absolute bangers? I know I'm not the only Bieber convert, although to be honest I haven't had much choice other than to embrace the Biebs when one of his gazillion songs he has out at the moment is on a radio station at any given time.

7. "On fleek". Everything and everyone has been on fleek this year. Especially brows, and if yours aren't, quite frankly, why are you even here?

8. Star Wars. Star Wars here, Star Wars there, Star Wars everywhere. You could hardly walk in to any shop and not be immediately assaulted with a thousand and one Star Wars products. I don't even like Star Wars and even I am now the (not-so) proud owner of a Darth Vader cake, Princess Leia headband, a poster and have been eyeing up a tote bag for a few weeks... I JUST CAN'T HELP IT!!

9. Some weird AF make up trends. How many of you have tried strobing, or "cooking" a contour a la Kim Kardashian (See, told you) or over lining your lips to get the Kylie Jenner look without the suction (and again...). Rainbow/glitter roots, bubble nails (get back to wherever you came from pls) and dying armpit hair gloriously bright colours... 2015 is a strange place.
