Top 100 Lifestyle Trends in October

From Inflatable Irish Pubs to DIY Bee Sanctuaries

— October 30, 2016 — Lifestyle
These October 2016 lifestyle trends range from inflatable Irish pub brand activations to multi-functional juice packaging that doubles as an eco-friendly bee sanctuary. A standout, 'Beebnb' acts as a carrier for cold pressed juice bottles but can later be transformed into a DIY bee habitat after use. The example is both functional and sustainable, reducing waste while addressing a serious environmental issue -- the decline of bee populations.

Additional standouts this month include feline-inspired footwear accessories that fuse style and fandom along with marshmallow dessert kits that are a streamline take on classic camping snacks.

Other October 2016 lifestyle trends to take note of include university-branded food trucks, craft beer college courses and even robot-run pizzerias that serve as examples of memorable marketing that is geared toward younger consumer groups.
