As time progresses and trends come and go there comes a time in every young man’s life where he decides to finally come into his own style. Guy’s we’ve all been there before, remember wearing the baggy pants with the long white T-shirts or the color coordinated scrunch socks to match your polo shirt.

However! There are some trends that need to stay in 2015 as we move on into the New Year, here’s a list of a few trends that have made their mark in 2015 and some that just need to go away.

Men’s Uggs

Uggs have surely made waves onto the feet of many guys in 2015 contradicting the many claims from us men on how much we hate our girls wearing them and now we are too. Guys please do all of us a favor and leave these fuzzy boots to the girls, there are many alternatives to the comfortable boot “thankfully!” Like sneaker boots. Nike created a comfortable sneaker boot under Nike Max 90 which would make an appropriate and comfortable alternative to the winter terrain fuzzy boot.

Celebrity Edition: The Stress for the perfect Body image!

The pressure for perfection continues to be at an all-time high in our society. Every single day, people are bombarded by the expectation of the preferred form. Both men and women are subjected to society’s standard of beauty through magazines, television, and the endless amount of “health aids” that assist in achieving and maintaining the optimal physique. Women are either expected to be rail thin (for high fashion) or have tiny waists with large lower regions (the perfect hourglass). With the constant visuals, people are driven to go to unhealthy lengths to achieve the “perfect shape.”

Diet pills, waist trainers, excessive working out, all types of implants, fat removal, etc, are some things that people are doing and some of the people affected the most by it are celebrities. Due to the constant pressure that comes with being in the public eye, they are held to unrelenting standards.

They will also appear on New Year’s Eve Game Night With Andy Cohen, which precedes Daly’s annual countdown celebration. John Stamos, Bob Saget and JB Smoove will take part in the Game Night fun as well.

I applaud NeNe Leakes for turning her Real Housewives of Atlanta career into a brand. Since the show’s airing, NeNe Leakes has started her own businesses, made numerous guests appearances on TV show, and she’s even been on Broadway – a feat many public figures and entertainers don’t even have on their resume. Salute NeNe!

Bobbi Kristina’s Ex-Boyfriend, Nick Gordon (@NickGordon), Posts Sad Christmas Card on Twitter

2015 was definitely a terrible year for the Brown and Houston Clans with the loss of Bobbi Kristina Brown. For months the world watched, prayed, and hoped for her recovery after she was found nearly lifeless in a tub, just like her mother, Whitney, a couple of years before. However, the injuries she sustained as well as the volatile relationship she shared with her ex-boyfriend, Nick Gordon, have him caught in the cross-hairs of a $40 million dollar lawsuit from Bobbi Kristina’s family. Well, even if he is allegedly behind the events that led to her death he did manage to post a sad Christmas card to Twitter in remembrance of her. Check it out below.

The source of the image is the picture featured in this article (obviously), but it is kind of creepy that he would choose a picture like this. We do miss Bobbi Kristina and would like to get to the bottom of what really happened to her. Nick has a lot of explaining to do. None of his antics this year did anything to make the world believe his innocent, let alone sane. One thing is for sure she and her mother are united in a much better place than this one. Rest in peace Whitney and Bobbi Kristina.
