One day while I was home alone browsing through fashion blogs, I had an idea to put together a WHAT’S HOT post every month. I thought it would be beneficial as I’ll be able to stay on top of trends that stem from the industries I’m interested in (i.e. beauty, fashion, health and lifestyle).
I still think it’s a good idea as I’m writing this until it occurred to me that I do catch up with trends when I’m on social media. I guess I was just having one of those I-don’t-think-I-know-enough moments…
Then I thought to myself: wouldn’t it be interesting to discover the trends outside the industries I’m familiar with? Hence, I’ve decided to start the What’s [Unusually] Hot series. Every month, I’ll seek out things that are trending or topics that are currently being discussed in different countries.
To include all of the trends is not only tedious but will make you zone out faster than when you’re in a lecture. Therefore, what you read here has been selectively chosen by me.
Note: The following trends appear in no particular order.
1. Gakken Kits
Gakken Holdings was established in Japan during the 1940s. Its initial focus was on publishing educational books and magazines but it soon expanded to include the development of teaching materials and tools for preschools, kindergartens and high schools during the 1970s.
Edison Wax Candle Cylinder Phonograph Kit
The Pinhole Planetarium Kit
I’ve never heard of this company before but my God, these are cool! I miss those days when children and adults would look forward to hands-on projects during their free time instead of being smitten to an electronic device.
Things I admire or would get when I own a house…
3. Fidget toys
Strangely enough I don’t own a pair of Levi’s jeans. These are the styles I hope to get my hands on in the future.
5. Baby Groot
I squeal whenever Baby Groot appears on screen. I can understand why sales has spiked for this little one.
6. Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil by Angela Stanton
7. The Islamic Enlightenment: The Struggle Between Faith and Reason, 1798 to Modern Times by Christopher de Bellaigue
8. The Cancer Revolution: A Groundbreaking Program to Reverse and Prevent Cancer by Leigh Erin Connealy
