Once a month here on the blog, we play a fun game called “Let’s Play Oprah” where we share our current top 3 “Favorite Things” with each other and then at the end of the month I give away one of those items to a lucky subscriber.

Because giveaways are fun! And we just so happen to be fun-havers!

Every once in a while I’ll pick a theme for my Favorite Things but this month I didn’t even choose one on purpose- I just looked at my list and realized they all had one thing in common: Coconut.

I prefer clean, light, earthy scents over heavier floral scents any day, and Coconut happens to be one of my favorite scents of all, so I guess it’s no surprise that it appears in so many of my beauty and household products. The smell reminds me of summer vacation and all things beachy, and who doesn’t want to be reminded of that?

Okay, are you ready?

? Lets Play Oprah! ?

I have a *bit* of an obsession with candles. I have no problem telling people about my book-buying obsession because it makes me sound quirky and brainy, but I’ll never publicly cop to the number of candles I own. It’s a lot. Enough to be ashamed about. My candle cabinet is in the last place in my house that anyone would look because no one needs to be knowing about my dirty little candle hoarding secret. Read More…

Oh heyyyyy!

We’re going to start something new here on the blog. Something just for fun.

Remember this summer when I told you that I wanted to give you a humpback whale but I made you list instead? (Which was really just a thinly veiled attempt to play Oprah and tell you all my “favorite things”.)

I made you a list of all my favorite podcasts, books, TV shows, and music at the moment and I got a surprising amount of interaction from you guys. It turns out it wasn’t only fun for me.

Because let’s all be real here: who doesn’t love to dish about what we’re currently into?

No one.

No one doesn’t.

(No that’s not proper grammar, and yes I did it on purpose. Because I’m a real renegade like that.)

Anyway, I thought it would be fun to start a monthly series here on the blog where we play “Oprah” and share our favorite things with each other. Unironically enough, the series will be titled “Let’s Play Oprah.”

I’m going to dedicate one post a month to sharing my top 3 favorite things at the moment and you guys can do the same. Leave a comment here on the blog, on social media, or even reply to my email newsletter and we’ll do that thing where we keep each other in the loop of what’s all the rage these days. Because we’re homies, and homies gotta look out for each other.

But that’s not all, guys (she said in her best Oprah voice).

The really fun part is that at the end of the month I’m going to GIVE AWAY one of my favorite things.
