Top 50 Unique Trends in September

From Drumstick Fitness Workouts to Fat-Infused Water Beverages

— September 30, 2015 — Unique
These September 2015 unique trends range from unconventional makeup brushes -- shaped to resemble a spoon with thick bristles -- to ramen noodle vending machines that make the minute meal even more convenient for junk food fans.

As bizarre fitness experiences become even more popular, workouts like drumstick fitness classes and ambient yoga experiences follow in the footsteps of last month's pet exercise craze that was made popular with cat and dog stretch sessions.

In addition to fun fitness experiences, these September 2015 unique trends also include cannabis wine pairings along with lobster-infused beers and dessert sushi hybrids that feature unexpected flavor pairings. Other standouts include fashion favorites like exaggerated eyewear -- Gasoline Glamour's floral sunglasses celebrate summer -- along with calorie-burning vests that are designed in partnership with space agency NASA.
