From Parisian Picnic Services to Dapper Pet Accessories

The top August 2014 lifestyle ideas include a variety of World Cup-related products, campaigns and ads spilling over from the tournament's finale last month. The devastating and shocking loss of Brazil in the semi-cup finals spawned various websites and blogs -- such as the The Sad Brazilians Tumblr -- that compiled photographs of people's faces upon witnessing the home country's breakdown.

Outside the realm of the World Cup, other products and services gathering attention include anything enabling consumers to enjoy the last leg of the summer season. From gourmet barbecuing tools to Parisian picnic services and unusual camping accessories -- the 'Walking Sleeping Bag' with two legs definitely serves a niche demand -- consumers can partake in a wide range of activities.

For those who prefer to spend their time indoors, the giant toilet exhibit in a Japanese museum can certainly provide some entertainment.
