eBay Bargains #77 - Summer On Trend

Today I wanted to talk summer 2017 trends! 

If I'm honest I don't really follow trends, however, this summer there does seem to be some cool ones that I've been drawn to. But with all trends they come and go so I'm all about that eBay life and grabbing a bargain. So here I'm sharing my favourite summer trends that are oh so easy to pull off alongside my favourite eBay picks for them! 

Cactus Homeware 
Metallic Cactus Vase (£7.50 each) 
Cactus themed homeware has been popular for a while now but this summer we will be seeing much more of it in stores. Although not a total bargain I couldn't resist including these stunning metallic cactus vases that you can even pick up in a rose gold finish! I can imagine a bunch of flowers looking pretty yet quirky in one of these! I also much prefer a solid vase to a clear glass one as it hides green-tinged water.

Feminist Tees 
Woman Superpower T-Shirt (£11.95) 
Feminist tees are very much on trend right now, with Topshop and a few other shops coming out with some pretty sassy and empowering slogan offerings. However, if you want something not many will be wearing then eBay is a good call. I love what this t-shirt says and the font! Available in a good range of sizes and in 4 different colours.

Straw Handbags 
Cherry & Banana Straw Clutch Bag (£6.29)
Woven beach bags could be seen in most s/s 17 runway shows at the end of last year so I'm expecting the trend to be a big one. I'd personally recommend snapping up a large straw beach bag and customising it to your liking with pom poms, tassel trims and of course a few patches. However, if you want to sport the trend with a much small bag then this one is just perfect! Perfectly summery and such a bargain!

Custom Word Signs 
Black Peg Board (£9.99)
From chalkboards to light boxes and now back to peg boards it seems we are sticking with the custom word homeware trend. Although light boxes remain cool, I have to say there's something extra fun about using and displaying a retro peg board. They also fit in with all decors andhave the added bonus of being used as a prop in social media images! This is an exceptionally cheap one and comes from Lakeland.

Bardot Style Dresses 
Boho Floral Off Shoulder Tie Dress (£8.99)
Bardot tops are certainly on trend right now but we are also going to be seeing a lot more Bardot style dresses this summer. Being bigger chested (how to phrase it without saying, I have big boobs?!) I often avoid this style as the material can hang away from the body and gives zero shape, so I was definitely drawn to this cinched in style that I know will be flattering on all body types! It's also quite covered up but nice and floaty, perfect for UK weather!

Tropical Print 
Lightweight Printed Kimono (£7.95) 
Another trend both in fashion and homeware this summer will be tropical print! From cushions to bikinis and so much more. Here I've selected a cover-up that could be worn with so many different pieces, from over a simple maxi dress to with a vest and shorts or even over a bikini on holiday. I have a few kimono style shrugs and they really do work well with our temperamental summer weather, covering up to prevent sunburn when we have a heat wave to wearing as a light open style jacket when it's cooler. This doesn't look like much but trust me, it will go with a lot of basics and add something to a simple outfit.

Silicone Gel Makeup Applicator (£1.69) 
Has the silisponge trend sailed yet? I'm thinking not just yet! As I've heard so many mixed reviews on this kind of applicator I'm still wanting to try it for myself so I will be picking up one of these and giving it a go!

Sheet Face Masks 
Tonymoly I'm Real Face Mask Sheet (£1.99 each)
Sheet masks really have taken off in the past few months with more and more UK based brands giving them a go. I've tried quite a few now and I still have to say that the ones from Tonymoly are my favourite (11 to chose from!), working really well and feeling so refreshing. A perfect cooling and soothing alternative to standard face masks this summer. 

What are your favourites from my picks here! 

Also, let me know if you're as excited for summer as I am - I literally can't wait for sunny days!
