Oprahs favorite things issue hit newsstands today! It’s time to get shopping!
Guess what day it is…the day the much anticipated list is finally released…can anyone guess which list I’m referring to?!? Oprah’s Favorite Things!!! Need I say more?
I have the best memories of watching the Oprah’s Favorite Things episode with my mom each year. We would both be glued to the T.V, envious of the audience members as we watched the Elves hand out amazing goodies from Oprah’s list! Well…pinch me! Yesterday, I called my mom as I was on my way to the Hearst Tower and told her I was going to meet the infamous elves and get a sneak preview of Oprah’s 2016 list. AHHHH it was such an exciting experience!! Adam Glassman, O, The Oprah Magazine’s creative director is such a gem; he really is such a sensational guy! Adam, along with Gayle King (Oprah’s BFF), were our hosts for the evening and gave us the scoop on how Oprah’s list is formed. Can you believe the selection process starts in JULY!!! It’s crazy to think how much time and effort goes into picking the list.
Anyway, let me get back to the event (and the elves). You have to check out my snapchats to see behind the scenes. Since I couldn’t live snap, I saved the snaps and posted them this morning (Username: Kctaekman). All of the elves were dressed in the exact same outfits Oprah is wearing on the cover of the magazine, too cute!
The event was so much fun, filled with delicious cocktails and festive cranberry drinks. There were also delicious hors devours and pastries….yummm! The dessert table was AMAZING! Check out my snaps to see all of the fantastic details. One more thing, I have to tell you about the cake…it looked like a poinsettia but was completely edible and a pure slice of heaven.
So lets get to the list…there are so many to choose from (101 options this year). I would love to tell you about all of them but that’s a long list…How about I gave you my top 10 and top 50 picks!
