The Top 10 Things to Say Buh Bye to from 2014!

wpid-goodbye

2014 was a great year for me in many ways: the blog has continued to thrive, I bought a new home and adopted a shelter dog that I love dearly. However, there are several things I don’t mind saying buh-bye to from 2014. The following is my list of things I can happily life without ever hearing about again.

That’s  SO 2014 (in no particular order):

  1. Using hashtags in your speech. Ex: “My husband was so mad I overdrew our bank account, hashtag whatagirlwants.” Barf!! Leave hashtags in social media where they belong and NOT in your speech.
  2. Kale ANYTHING. Kale smoothies, kale slaw, kale chips, Done. Over it. It’s not a cure for cancer, m’kay?
  3. Bespoke products. “bespoke” is a term from the UK meaning custom or handmade. During 2014, the term has been diluted to mean anything the brand/manufacturer is proud of. Too bad because it’s a cool word.
  4. Miley Cyrus’s tongue. Yeah, we get it…you want to break out of the Disney kid mold by proving you’re grown-up and sexy. Keep your tongue in your mouth Miley, we’ve seen it enough.
  5. ANYTHING Disney Frozen. All Disney movies have merchandising attached to them but wow, I’ve never seen anything like the merchandising for Frozen. I took my Centrum Silver Multivitamins for 50+ women today and I swear it was shaped like Olaf.Same with the The song Let It Go. Let’s do what the song says and just let it go.
  6. Teresa Guidce’s legal problems. She and her husband dominated the news, tabloids and internet for the entire year with their legal troubles. I’m sick of hearing about it. Who frickin’ cares? If you lie to a bankruptcy court be prepared to pay the price.
  7. Breaking the Internet. Who can forget Ellen DeGeneres and her Oscar selfie? That one pic crashed Twitter—it was spontaneous cute and fun. Flash forward to the end of the year when Kim Kardashian deliberately tried to “break the internet” by posing fully nude for Paper Magazine qand posting the pic. Apparently no one was paying attention to her for 10 seconds so she had to do something. Way to be a role model for your young daughter Kim. PLEASE let 2015 put an end to the Kardashians. PLEASE!!!
  8. Pharrell’s Hat. I love the song “Happy,” it’s so catchy and well…happy. His Vivienne Westwood Buffalo hat was the most popular Halloween costume in 2014, but can we retire it now please?
  9. The Polar Vortex. C’mon, it’s not even a real thing! It’s a scary term the media and meteorolgists gave cold weather.
  10. Taylor Swift. I have nothing against the girl. She is a  talented singer/songwriter, seems humble, and is a good role model for young girls. My problem is only that I am sick of seeing her face on all over TV commercials, the internet, every billboard, magazine, and radio station. Hey Taylor Swift’s manager give us a little break okay?

Is there anything you are happy to say goodbye to? Please share!

  36. Totally agree about T. Swift…she seemed so cute and fresh when we first started to see her, and she dressed modestly and feminine, and now she’s just everywhere and seems all over the place with her style.
    But I’m still eating kale!

  37. This absolutely cracked me up. I was reading it in bed and laughing out loud. You hit the nail on the head with each of these. When I mention Kale to my kids they turn up their noses just like I do. With a 3 1/2 year old around though there’s still some Frozen around here though we never make it far into the movie. Luckily he doesn’t want Frozen toys.
