The BritList: Lego Bow Ties, Floppy Disk Coasters & More
Can you believe Memorial Day is next weekend? We admit it, we’re probably a little too excited about the unofficial start of summer. From putting flowers in popsicles to adding colorful streaks to our hair with chalk, this week has been all about unusual combinations that turn out beautifully. Here are a handful of innovative, silly, and delicious odds and ends we found along the way.
Bow Tie Artwork: While searching online for our quintet of unusual bow ties, we stumbled across this series of Bow Tie art works by New York based artist Nicholas Ruiz. Love the legos!
: Now this just seems cruel, but since it’swe kind of love it. It would make a great paperweight or desk accessory
Foldable Speaker Concept: This concept, by Design Affairs Studio, is brightly colored, portable, and requires no battery power. It’s small enough to slide into your iPad or laptop case, and aesthetically pleasing enough to act as a permanent speaker system on your desk.
Dude No. 1 Beard Oil: That’s right. Oil for beards. Basically a way for ladies to get their dudes to smell good without suggesting they use Cool Water cologne.
Floppy Disk Coasters: Remember all those AOL floppy disks you used to get in the mail? Before the CD-rom version? Did you happen to save them for no real reason? If so, stay tuned for a DIY inspired by these Floppy Coasters in the coming weeks.
Neon Ice Cream Swirl: We can’t figure out where this image originally came from (let us know if you know!) but we’re swooning over the neon ice cream awesomeness.
