We’re hopeful here at Missy that 2018 is going to be a great year. That is unless an Umpa Lumpa starts a nuclear war! Please Impeach, Please Impeach, Please Impeach. Also in terms of a dream 2018, can we all please light a candle that Instagram will return to the old algorithm? We kid!
Closer to home, and more importantly, we have the Repeal the 8th vote, which you know is actually supper important for all of us in possession of a womb. We’ll be chatting more about that as the year goes on. Here’s just a few of the things that we are living for in 2018…
Movies To Look Forward To In 2018
Our own Saoirse Ronan is on track for Oscar glory in 2018 with her turn in Lady Bird. Although it has already been released in the US it will be out in Ireland in February. We cant wait to see it! Another movie with big buzz this award season is I, Tonya staring former Neighbours actress Margot Robbie. It tells the true story of figure skater Tonya Harding who caused a massive scandal in the 1990’s – ask your parents about it! We’re also looking forward to seeing A Wrinkle In Time which comes out in March and stars our personal Queen, Oprah. Later in the year we have Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (try to get that song out of your head now!) and we’re also super excited for the all-female Ocean’s 8, because what a cast!
TV Shows To Watch In 2018
2018 will see the return of lots of your favourite shows like the second half of Riverdale Season 2. 13 Reasons Why will also be back on Netflix, probably in the Spring Time. Dylan Minette, who plays Clay, teased the direction the second season will take in an interview earlier in the year. “This season particularly is a lot about recovery,” he explained. “It’s naturally going to progressively get to a more emotional place, due to the nature of the story we’re telling. I’m sure we’re all heading in some dark directions again. I think anybody would be surprised if we weren’t.” Colour us intrigued! Heathers is the new show that we are excited to see. It’s based on the 80’s cult movie of the same name. It looks like a cross between Mean Girls and Scream Queens. Interesting!
New Books Out In 2018
Louise O’Neill is set to release not one but two books this year. Although we cant wait to read Almost Love (out in March), we are super excited about reading The Surface Breaks, which is a feminist take on The Little Mermaid, Yass!! We’re also looking forward to reading the 4th book in the awesome Red Queen series. Sadly War Storm is supposed to be the last in the series, but lets keep our fingers crossed for a spin-off. Both books are set for a May release.
New Beauty Releases In 2018
Have you noticed that the beauty industry keeps their cards really close to their chest? Then BAM there’s a new massive release that you knew nothing about? No one does that better than Suzanne Jackson. Who really knows what she has up for sleeve in 2018? But we do know that at least one big launch will be her fake tan. Our inner psychic also thinks this will be a big year for Huda Beauty. Kylie Cosmetics is really up in the air because what is actually going on with Kylie?!? There are rumblings that her mom Kris is looking for a buyer for the company, so that will be interesting to watch.
2018 might also be the year that we step away from liquid lipsticks and embrace powdered lipsticks. Yes, you read that correctly! This new trend is straight out of Korea. The idea is that powdered lipsticks create a wearable, diffused lip look, much softer than 2017’s high-voltage liquid lipstick. Chanel has already unveiled their take on this trend with a sleek two-part palette, consisting of a clear balm and a pressed powder. Clinique’s Pop Lip Shadow comes as a sponge-tipped wand to apply and gives a pop of matte colour. It’s designed to be patted on with your finger that gives you a just-kissed stain. Both will be on sale in January. Let us know if you try it and what your thoughts are!
What are you looking forward to in 2018?
