My Favorite Things

If I were a billionaire talk show hostess, this season I would offer my audience the following things:

1) LL Bean Holiday Flannel Pants ($29.50). These pajama bottoms are so comfy and scrumptious I literally have worn them every day since I brought them home from the store.

2) BUST magazine ($19.95/year). Feminism, fashion, crafts, smart writing, independent artists--even the ads are great.

3) Burt's Bees Radiance Night Creme ($15/2 oz). It's gooey and delicious--and natural enough to eat. I apply it every night at bedtime and I think my skin is better for it.

4) Earth shoes. In vegan and non-vegan varieties, mine are funky little Mary Jane alternatives that are cute, comfy and feature Earth Shoe's inverted heel (which is hard to get used to, but is supposed to be really good for you.) They don't seem to sell mine any more, so I would give my audience these ($119), the next closest thing.

5) Lexie Barnes totes ($130). Sturdy comfortable straps, striking fabric pattern, water-resistant taffeta, deep, spacious, belly lined with pink! I LOVE my Lexie Barnes tote. I want a hundred more, but they don't make them like this any more. Next best thing--maybe even better, I don't know: The Lady B.

6) Netflix Player by Roku ($99). Oh, Netflix Player, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. If you love Netflix and have a broadband Internet connection at home (and, ideally, 802.11n Wi-Fi), run out and get this NOW. Read my full review here.

7) Futurama, Vol 1 ($39.98). Every season is great, but the first one is maybe my favorite. At any rate, it's a great place to start. Studio audience: enjoy.

8) Canvas Panels (45 cents) and paints ($3.78 each). One of the best things I did all year was paint a picture at Anna and Heidi's east coast wedding reception. I want to supply myself and paint some more. I haven't done it yet, so I don't know which paints or panels are best yet, but the experience was so great, I'd rather give my audience these to get started--and then maybe by next year, I'll have a favorite brand, color, or type of paint to share.

9) Harry Potter books on CD ($454.75). The entire collection, unabridged. Even though the reader mispronounces "Voldemort," it's still fantastic to listen to these books on CD, especially on long road trips.

10) Mead Five Star 2 Subject notebooks ($4.89). My favorite notebook to journal or write in. I'm currently writing a novel by hand in them. Hopefully my audience will love them as much as I do!

Love the vegan shoes!

I found a cute vegan shoe site http://www.neuaurashoes.com and bought their Solana boot.

The silhouette is so chic and simple that it goes with practically every outfit and I love the velvet lining!
