Holiday Mixtape Contest!

It’s time for another mixtape contest! I absolutely love making mixes, but I also love listening to mixes that other people make – our last contest was so much fun and opened my ears to so many amazing songs.  For those of you who don’t remember or are recently joining us, here’s how it will work!

We want you all to create a mix of 5 – 10 holiday songs – they do not need to be Christmas carols or other holiday-specific songs (although they can be if you want!), they can simply be songs that remind you of the holidays or winter months.  All you have to do is go to our RDIO page and add 5- 10 songs to our collaborative playlist, Holiday Mixtape Contest.” I’ve started it off with some songs below! Once you’re finished adding songs, come back and leave a comment on the blog listing your songs – be sure to include your email address! We will review all submissions and select a winner in one week, on Tuesday November 27th –  the winner’s mix will be featured on the blog and they will also receive a goodie bag of amazing accessories (pictured below)!

If you aren’t familiar with RDIO, you can register for free – then simply click on the link above to our mix, and click on the button that says “collaborate on this playlist.” You will be able to search for songs and add them to the playlist right there on the page. Don’t forget that  you can go to your local Free People store and with any purchase, receive an RDIO gift card for one month of free music!
