Top 75 Unique Trends in February

From 4D Printed Frocks to Bizarre Birthing Apps

— February 22, 2015 — Unique
These February 2015 unique ideas range from 4D printed frocks to bizarre birthing apps that are inspired by Disney cult classic Frozen. Inspired by fantasy and literature, niche fads like mermaid swimming schools and sparkly hate mail are making life just a little more whimsical for the working professional.

Fans of The Little Mermaid can test their underwater skills at the L'académie Aquasirène in Montreal. The Canadian academy teaches the everyday girl to channel Disney princess Ariel and even gives participants their own monofin to practice with. Furthermore Ship Your Enemies Glitter is an Australian service that allows you to send an envelope of sparkling glitter to that person in your life you just can't stand.

In addition to fantastical and revenge-themed ideas, these February 2015 unique trends also include bizarre beauty products as well as unlikely food hybrids that are surprisingly delicious.
