Hot for 2010.

So we are almost a month into the new year and I have been reading about all of the new trends for 2010.  I decided to give you a little breakdown.

  • Fashion – Due to the economy, classic items will be hot this year.  Think “smart basics”.  The experts do believe that whimsy will make a comeback during the year.  When I think whimsy I am reminded of the beautiful bib necklaces that I have seen around.  What a great way to elevate your classic wardrobe.

  • Entertainment – It is all about women this year.  Especially the 40 something woman (yay me).  Strong female based drama’s will take over the influx of reality shows out there.  It reminds me of the new Julianna Margulles show called “The Good Wife”.  I haven’t seen the show but I did see the promo where she slapped her husband pretty hard!
  • Food – The melting pot is where it is at.  Not the fondue restaurant of the same name…blended cuisines from all over the world.  Think a big juicy burger flavored Japanese style.  The other trend?  Sodium is the new carb.  Out with the sodium this year.  You will see just about every food brand trying to cut the sodium out of their prepared food.  You can even lower the sodium in the food that you cook at home.  Here is a salt free pizza seasoning that you can purchase online.

  • Living- Upcycling.  Huh?  I had to find a definition for this one.  Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or a higher environmental value.  Oh, I get it.  Like this cellphone holder made out of a rice bag!

So there you have it.  While you are sitting at home watching chick dramas while eating unsalted popcorn you can multi-task and sew your trash into Christmas gifts for next year.  Yeah, have fun with that.
