Top 100 Lifestyle Trends in August

From Furniture Brand Food Trucks to Edible Alcoholic Bubbles

— August 26, 2016 — Lifestyle
These August 2016 lifestyle trends range from furniture brand food trucks to edible alcohol bubbles that take the popular fad of molecular mixology to new heights. When looking at the month's most notable food and beverage innovations, standouts include zesty mineral waters and gourmet ice cream tacos that combine unexpected ingredients to create a new flavor hybrid.

When examining the world of sports, sophisticated snorkeling masks and female-centric skateboarder photographs are some of this month's most notable examples. The latter -- photographer Hannah Bailey's 'The Free Life' image series gives women in a male-dominated sport a platform to showcase their skills and passion for skateboarding.

Celebrity breakup insurance and tattooed wedding rings round off this list of August 2016 lifestyle innovations and illustrate Millennials' appreciation for non-traditional displays of romance.
