PINTEREST PREDICTS THE FUTURE
Pinterest released a report on the top 27 emerging lifestyle trends for 2023 - and before you roll your eyes at another garbage report, get this:
For the last 3 years, 80% of their report predictions came true.
I mean, is your horoscope even that accurate?? This is as close to psychic as we can get, people!
It makes sense, since people tend to use Pinterest to plan for the future. So based on searches and pins, they can determine what’s gonna be hot soon.
Here’s a peek at the most interesting trends to come:
Boomers and Gen X are gonna plan epic parties. The trending searches that led to this prediction? 100th birthday party ideas (+50%), 50th anniversary cookies decorated (+135%), and 80th birthday party decorations (+85%). Grandma’s ready to rage.
Superfoods and supplements from the sea: chlorophyll, green algae, seaweed snacks. Huberman, WYA??
A renewed focus on good posture and stretching. Ever heard of a neck hump exercise? Yeah us either… but apparently searches for “neck hump exercises” are up 210%. We looked it up and it turns out, neck hump (aka buffalo hump LOL) = a lump right under the back of your neck you get from slouching too much.
Train travel is gonna make a huge comeback, mostly driven by the IG train aesthetic and a push towards eco-friendliness.
The healthy, non-alcoholic lifestyle will get more popular. That means a lot more mocktails and low-ABV drinks hitting the grocery stores this year.
Parties, but for your dog. That’s right, little Rudolpho is about to get a pool party all for himself.
Gen X and Millennials will get more budget conscious and money saving challenges and games will become a lot more popular
Old stuff in your home. Interior decor will evolve to mix modern and more antique pieces. Translation: vintage stuff is about to get a lot more expensive.
Fashion that looks like your favorite 2000s romantic comedy. Who says fashion doesn’t come back around?
BRB going to look for some neck hump exercises..
