You didn’t think I wasn’t going to chime in with my favorite things, right? I mean, if everyone else is giving their 2 cents then I should, too. And you know what else everyone says? They say, “make your list an odd number! People love odd numbers!” But you know what? I’m round, at least for the beginning of 2016, so I like the number 8. It’s divisible by 16, and it kind-of rhymes with Blake. KIND-OF. So, these are 8 of my favorite things from 2015. #WOWBestof2015
I haven’t installed mine yet because the batteries were NOT included, but I’m sure it’s a game changer. I only wonder why they didn’t call it the IllumiPotty?
Working here at World of Wonder is a whole lot of things, but one thing it IS NOT is boring. Every year seems to get a little better, and 2015 was a freaking BANNER YEAR with the 1st annual RuPaul’s DragCon! Next year is guaranteed to be BIGGER & BETTER. Get your tickets for RuPaul’s DragCon on May 7 & 8, 2016 NOW!
Check out my post on my favorite albums of 2015. Did I miss any?
I’m a candle addict. And these are my latest obsession. They have the best colors, and the scents to reflect them. Not too weak, and not too strong. I love the simple design, and I get mine at Marshalls or TJ Maxx. But you can get them online. My favorite? Wild Honey Nectar. It reminds me of this candle I got working this gifting suite for the 2007 Oscars at the Roosevelt Hotel. My first brush with celebrity? Carrot Top. He wasn’t at the gifting suite. He just appeared at the top of a staircase while we were loading in.
The options are ENDLESS. If this isn’t proof, I don’t know what is.
I had ADT since I moved in to my house in 2012, but switched to AT&T Digital Life because they offered hi-tech cameras with night vision, locks for your doors, climate and light control in your home that can ALL be controlled remotely from your smart phone through an app, AND a tablet that acts as a second smart keypad for the low price of $55 a month plus equipment. When I ordered, they were running a special where you could get one camera for $100 off. I wanted 3 cameras – one for each door. (Here in LA there is a harsh $200 penalty every time the police are dispatched for a “false alarm.” I got three last year.) The friendly agent read the order back with the 3 cameras, but when the guy showed up to install, AFTER I took the day off to make sure it was installed before I left for holiday break, he only had one camera! Ugh. I’ll let you know how the situation unfolds, but AT&T Digital Life is an AWESOME option for affordable home protection, and maybe more importantly, peace of mind.
The Goldbergs is awesome. Main character Adam was only a little older than me, and it’s all about growing up in what some call the best decade ever. I can relate with him because he LOVES pop culture and isn’t the typical sports obsessed boy. And his BFF is a girl! Yep. Wendi McLendon-Covey is PERFECT as “smother” Beverly Goldberg. There’s also always REAL VHS footage shot by show-runner Adam Goldberg (who the show is loosely based on) himself and an awesome throwback ’80s jam. I always love seeing the real Bev-O. If you grew up OR raised children anywhere around the 1980s, you’ll love this show.
