Lego series 10 Trendsetter bump code

The Trendsetter girl is apparently one of the rarer per box in Series 10, so I was pretty happy to get one with some of the first bags I bought. As you can see, she has 2 accessories, which should make her easier to identify in the blind bags if you use the feel method.

Yesterday was one of those rare days in Ireland where the sun is shining and the wind is merely  a breeze.
