The early noughties WORSHIPPED the French manicure, and all of a sudden we're seeing a major comeback.

Between Ariana Grande using the trend as part of her iconic 00's chick-flick themed Thank U, Next music video, and Ocean's 8 featuring the nail art, fashion has taken a turn.

White-tipped nails were huge back in the day, everyone who was anyone sported the chic style craze. Heiresses such as Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian West aided the movement.

The trend appeared to die by the time 2010 came along, with those in the ensuing decade calling it cheesy and (*gasp*) TACKY.

The tide is turning, because the nail style is appearing everywhere from red carpets to fashion shows, from celebrity appearances to music videos. 

We're seeing massive 1990s comebacks, from bands such as the Spice Girls and Westlife as well as reboots of popular TV shows and movies such as Sabrina.

It makes sense that nails should follow fashion and popular culture, and we're SO ready to whip out those white tips.

LeChat celebrity nail artist Elle has said that;

"Fashion has taken a '90s turn from influence, so of course the trends have returned from that era. I'm enjoying the new modern twists, maybe because it comes from my era."

"How you approach the modern take is vital; the nail shape should be a ballerina, not a square. If it's not done right, it will become 'basic'," she commented.

Heaven forbid. 

Are you ready to WERK the trend, or do you think it should stay in the 2000s where it belongs? 



Halloween might be done and dusted but a genuine chill of fear rippled through me when I read these next three words: low rise jeans.

I mean, if you're JLo circa 2002 then by all means, don't let my frustration and seething envy stand in your way.

But if you're like the majority of us and feel quite at home in your go-to high-waisted jeans, then this may not be the best news.

We have a lot to thank the early 2000’s for – Paris and Nicole’s iconic friendship, Britney being Britney and Xtina’s Stripped album.

Low rise jeans or bumsters are what we try and forget ever happened in the early 2000’s – but word is that they are making a comeback.

The runways are our glimpse into the fashion world an the trends to come and they have been showing a lot of low slung jeans – were talking full on hip-grazing designs.

It was Alyx’s Matthew Williams June  fashion show where a few trousers dipped suspiciously below the navel.

And in the women’s wear shows? Chanel, Courrèges, Versace followed suit, to name only a few.

What is happening?!

It seems that people are feeling our pain about this re-apparoaching trend, just look at some of these gas tweets.

So, why is it happening?

Is a nostalgia thing? Are we so wrapped up in our obsession of times gone by that were looking at ugly trends through rose-tinted glasses?

Are we romanticising Britney’s 2001 “Slave 4 U” snakeskin thong worn over leather pants?

Or Christina Aguilera’s lace-up low riders on the Stripped album cover?

I think we just might be tbh.

And speaking for myself, Ill be sticking to my trusty mom jeans.

Flattering? Maybe not? Do I freeze my arse off? I do not.

And that’s a win in my book, so you can keep your low-risers, thank you very much.


That time of year is upon us again when all the kids head back to school. 

The shops are filled with stationary, uniforms, school bags and lunch boxes.

But while they moan and complain that life isn't fair, we take a look back at the things that only girls of the noughties will understand.

Get ready for memories to come flooding back:


1.The moment your teacher wheeled in the MASSIVE television to your classroom you knew it was movie time (aka. nap time).


2. The SHAME of being told to stand outside the class because you were being bold (but really you are a hilarious entertainer loved by your peers).


3. The battle you had with your mother to get a cool pair of Kickers as your new school shoes. She rarely gave in *sob*.


4. When you got a substitute teacher rather than your normal teacher – which meant ZERO work and having all the bants.


5. Adding amaze WordArt to your homework and school projects. 


6. Homework journals were a blank canvas – any available sticker/picture of hot celebrity filled the pages instead of actual homework. 


7. Writing on your schoolbag with Tip-Ex or a big black marker. Because that's how you expressed yourself, obvs. 


8. The dreaded bleep test. But you secretly made a pact with your BFF to drop out after round 2. 


9. New stationary – you hated going back to school but shopping for stationary was the highlight of your summer.


10. Your German aural exam beginning… and all you can remember are the words bibliothek, diskothek and nein. 


11. Texting under the table with your Nokia – and being able to text without looking because the phone buttons were oh-so HUGE. 


12. Finding out your teacher's first name. #Insiderknowledge.


13. Rolling up the waistband of your skirt – just so one centimetre of flesh could be seen.


14. MSN – where every teenage love affair blossomed.


15. When you FINALLY left school – which involved writing on each others worn out shirts, asking your favourite teacher to sign your memory book and crying loads – only to remember you'll see everyone down the local in an hour. 





Ah, the days of Britney Spears and collecting the S Club 7 magazine. 
The early 2000’s was full of, er, dramatic trends. We loved them at the time, but looking back now…mother, how could you …

1. Flared jeans
Once you go skinny fit, you never go back. Couldn’t be dealing with the stress of those ripped ends dragging behind me anymore.

2. Butterfly clips
“What have you done to your sisters hair?” “Mum, this took us all morning”

3. Denim mini skirts
These actually can still be quite cute, just maybe not teamed with leggings and a pair of Uggs…

4. Fishnet tights and studded belts
“But dad I want to look like Avril Lavigne?”

5. Playboy stuff
Particularly those velvet tracksuits… #SoVogue

6. Chokers
We’re so glad this trend came back because let’s face it, it never should have left.

7. Bandanas
They’re fine now, we just wore them all wrong ways in 2002…

8. Crop tops
"What do you mean I'm not allowed to get my bellybutton pierced?!"
