12 Trends Every Quirky Yet Girly Personality Will Love This Summer

"Look in your mom's closet for your summer supply of shorts."

Whether it's 2018 or 1988, some of these trends may never leave. Some of us will argue that for our own lives, the fanny pack will always be a necessity.

1. The fanny pack

If you're the "mom" friend of the group (you know who you are) you probably couldn't be more excited about this trend. You can now carry snacks and the pack of kleenex from your car on a hike, in vogue. Some of these suckers are even waterproof and come with a built-in Bluetooth speaker.

2. One-piece bathing suits

They're back, dad's across the nation are happy, and some of us question why they left in the first place.

3. Waterproof Bluetooth speaker

If you're not a fanny pack person, of course.

5. Retro Sunnies

These cute sunnies will brighten your day.

7. High waisted shorts

Go ahead and go through your moms closet and her stash of clothes from her twenties. You might find your summer supply of shorts.

8. The overall-shorts duo

You wouldn't believe these were originally meant to work on the farm.

9. Go graphic, stay comfy

Your favorite graphic tees are always acceptable. Yes, you can even pull out your 7th grade Justin Beiber tee (too far?) or even a Star Wars tee. Pair it with the high waisted shorts or overall shorts and top knot buns. Cute AND quirky accomplished.

10. The attachable, professional camera lens

Because we all know you're dog/cat is photo ready 24/7. But, not everyone can afford the iPhone x's picture quality so the quality is now available to you. much. cheaper.

20 Small Tattoos With Big Meanings

Tattoos with meaning you can't deny.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret.

So here are 20 tattoos you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

SEE RELATED: "Please Stop Asking What My Tattoos Mean"

1. A semicolon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.

2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."

3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.

4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."

5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."

6. Greek symbol of Inguz: Where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."

8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya).

9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty, and artistic creativity.

10. The Greek word “Meraki" means to do something with soul, passion, love, and creativity or to put yourself into whatever you do.

11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from "The Hobbit." It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.

13. “Lux in tenebris" means “light in darkness."

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength and stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.

16. A glyph means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."

18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower's first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe and the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can remind us of the inconsistency of life. It also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.
