Urban Outfitters LSTN 12 is here!! free music!

i get so excited for these compilation albums... number one, they are free! number two, they are always full of really interesting, gems of songs. as usual, i am impressed.

Urban Outfitters did something totally new with their latest LSTN album webpage. you can preview each song by clicking on an image of an album representing the artist's song. for instance, here is my favorite song of the album:

the swilt!! check out this innovative new product!!

a friend of mine recently went after his dream and brought his versatile sweater + quilt product concept to life. this ingenious product is called the swilt.

i got to try out the swilt over the weekend and have become a fan!

the swilt functions as a hooded sweater and doubles as a full-body covering that can keep you warm in the house, out at a sporting event, camping, or in almost any other situation.

the swilt is made out of fleece. in its rolled-up format, the swilt is a comfortable hoodie-sweater. two clasps keep the blanket part of the swilt tucked in and pretty much undetectable.

releasing the clasps allows the wearer to transform the sweater into a head-to-toe warming garment, perfect for keeping in the warmth. the rolled out position is so cozy, i could have fallen asleep in seconds.

just in case you're camping or going to a sporting event in the swilt, it's foot envelope is equipped with a durable, wipe-able fabric on the outside so both your feet and the inside fleece are protected from dirt!

the swilt is an amazing new product that is sure to catch a lot of attention, especially in the coming colder days. at only $30, it's really a bargain! it is really an ideal product for camp-a-holics, sports game-goers, picnickers, and anyone looking for some extra warmth!

check out the swilt's site by clicking -here- to find out how to get your own swilt!
