Mix Tape

Making mix tapes used to be so much fun but now with MP3s they’ve become a part of history. So how can we bring some of that fun back? Here’s some ideas to make sharing music a pleasure again.

USB Mix Tape

This USB stick is housed in a retro “cassette” box, how 80s!

CD Sleeve

If you prefer to go down the CD route, there are some fab CD sleeves on Etsy. I especially love this Good Shit one by PressaRussa, part of a collection of letterpress goodies that are to die for!

February 12th, 2009

I’m a terrible Londoner who should know how unpredictable the weather can be around these parts. When I left work today it was snowing; I had no gloves, stupid shoes on and no umbrella! I had to splash out £18 for an umbrella from Accessorize; way more than I’d normally spend but desperate times…

I consoled myself with the fact that the umbrella would look great with the dream hallway I’ve been picturing for the last few days. I’ve seen some items that would go perfectly together to create a glamorous yet quirky entry way to any home. I especially love the moustache key holder by suddenly, it’s real. My husband said I could buy it if he was allowed to grow a handlebar moustache to match. Fair trade I think!



  1. Gloss black mustache key hook – $45 (delivery to UK available)
  2. Baroque Console Table – £110
  3. Owl Umbrella Stand – $140
  4. Clear umbrella – £18 (available in store only)
