I am a designer that loves searching out new trends and products. I am that annoying person that sends out emails to all of my friends of cool stuff that I've found!

I love anything to do with fashion, celebs and advertising - so that is probably what you'll find when reading my trends.
What is unique that's not in your bio?
I'm an English gal that has recently moved to Canada. Immersing myself in a new culture.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
Getting a fab job pretty quickly after moving to Canada from the UK
How do you define cool?
Anything that makes me thing, 'why didn't I think of that!'
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Immersing yourself fully in the news, social networking sites and generally being nosey!
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
It gives me the outlet I need to show what I have found and discuss it with like minded people
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
Find something that interests you, I think it's quite obvious if you are writing about something you aren't totally interested in.
Predict something awesome for 2020?
Exercise machines that keep us fit while we sleep!
