1. Travel

Since time began people have drawn inspiration by removing themselves from their everyday environment and experiencing the life and style of others. People are discovering forgotten castles, sinking into hot springs and looking to far-away places and tiny out-of-the-way towns to seek ideas and inspiration home to enjoy. Whilst Rio is topping many an itinerant wishlist, others are jetting off to unknown destinations for the ultimate inspiration.

2. Health and wellness

Nutrition, natural remedies and healthy eating are high on everyone’s list, according to their searches on Pinterest. Sustainable solutions in the kitchen – such as beeswax wraps and waste reduction are peeking everyone’s interest.

4. Party, party, party

Planning, decorating and sourcing goods for marking special occasions are big, big, big – everything from how to create a backyard wedding to creating a coloured smoke bomb for fabulous photographic moments. Donuts continue to delight and celebration cakes never lose their appeal, however, forget a 5-year-old’s racing car cake – trending right now are grown-up cakes shaped like numbers – seriously fancy!
