What's HOT in 2011!

Are you ready?  Ready or not, here comes 2011! 
Here's What's Hot and What's Not for the New Year!
The new year brings new trends.  Here's a peek at what's coming in 2011...

Living Online
Social media is only growing in influence. But it's evolved in the past 12 months. Here's what's new:
2010: Social Networking: Facebook, Linked in, Kik Messenger
2011: Social Buying: Lockerz, Plum District, Ideeli
(2010 was all about social networking, now it's about social buying – group discounts available to online communities).

And whether we're doing social buying or social networking, we're all spending a lot of time on our computers. But there's a change there too:
2010: Living Online: Gilt, i Tunes, Amazon
2011: Living in the Cloud: Netflix, Grooveshark, Mobile Me, iPad, Verizon mobile internet, Apple TV
(In 2010, we lived online. This year, we'll be living in the cloud -- accessing our data online instead of storing it on our computers)

Comfort is Cool! 
This is the year of 'homey' and 'homemade'.  Don't be fooled - 'Dining In' IS IN, along with the food favorites you love!
Food Trends:
Fish tacos, cupcakes (NOT cupcakes!) and Red Bull are out....Fried chicken,  pies and relaxation drinks are in.
