Did any of you guys watch Oprah yesterday?

Let me just start off by saying that was a really depressing show to watch!  It was Oprah’s annual “Favorite Things” episode, where she gives everyone in the audience thousands of dollars worth of her favorite things.  To see the complete list of gifts each audience member received this year, go here.  It ranges everywhere from a $40 set of soaps to a $3,799 refrigerator.  And yes, everyone in the audience received this refrigerator (with built in tv and digital cookbook).  It’s CRAZY! 

The cool part about this show was that none of the women in the audience knew they were on the Favorite Things show.  When Oprah told them – I’m serious – it was almost a riot.  Women were going NUTS! Crying, dancing, dang near passing out.  It was very intense.  Now that I’ve seen one of these shows – and see how much Oprah gives away, I might have fainted myself!

While I wouldn’t spend money on things like this, it doesn’t mean I don’t want you to buy it for me for Christmas.  Not everything on Oprah’s must-have list was out of our price range.  There were a couple products that I actually wouldn’t mind trying – and would make even better gift ideas.  Here are a couple of my favorite things from Oprah’s favorite things.

CLAUS PORTO SOAPS FROM LAFCO NEW YORK

These all-natural, bath-sized shea butter bars distributed by Lafco New York are a labor of love. They have been created by the Claus Porto’s family-run factory in Portugal for the past 117 years. The jumbo-sized soaps appeal to the senses with beautiful wrappers and 17 magnificent scents, from honeysuckle to grapefruit fig. “They make great hostess gifts,” Oprah says.

KAI BODY BUTTER and BODY BUFFER

“Bathing is an art form and nobody enjoys it more than I do,” Oprah says. Kai customized their signature scent into a moisturizing body butter in a tub just for Oprah. “It’s clean and fresh,” she says. She also loves the Body Buffer by Kai, which combines an exfoliating loofah and cleansing soap all in one. Just wet and squeeze to release foaming bubbles that smell like an exotic garden.

Natalie Portman in InStyle Magazine, December 2007

Natalie always looks totally gorgeous, no matter what she wears!  I like that she wears very little makeup, and always looks beautiful.  When you see her with makeup, it’s usually natural looking – and I love that.
