Oprah’s Favorite Things Holiday Gift Guide

Fourteen perfect holiday gift options from @OprahHatParty

oprah's favorite things01

It’s is so pretty and I love it!!! I think that any one person would be so beautiful in this wig. I think it would look great on anyone including you me and any relative or friend you have met in your life. The curls are so pretty, I like them and the head that is shown with it is stunning as well. I hope that you will buy one for yourself and an additional one for each of the people you know in your life who deserves to look gorgeous.

oprah's favorite things02

Have you ever had a baby? I have not had a baby but I do know several people who have had a baby. I find it a bad idea but the do grow fingernails so they can’t be so bad. Please don’t hurt your baby fingers with a grown person emory board and instead gently hurt their fingernails with a baby one instead. I like this one because it is made of glass which is a a pretty material, and the blue gradient makes it also look good when you loko at it.

oprah's favorite things03

This is cute boot, I love the pointy tongue at the top. The lace is a sexy detail and this is a really versatile fashion piece. I think you should buy one for any person with legs, even though there is only one shown in the pic there probably come two in a box. I would recommend reading user reviews before purchasing this because I am only one person but it is prurient to weigh the opinions of millions before making a decision.

oprah's favorite things04

This is extremely pretty. I love the hearts and gorgeous color of suede that was chosen by Olivier Rousteing. If your waist is too big you can wear this as a necklace bracelet thigh garter belt or perhaps just put it in your room and when people are RUDE to you you can take some solace in the fact that you have something this pretty that exists in your life and nothing can stop u. U can also give this as a gift to some person who deserves it.

 

oprah's favorite things05

This is is a good and gorgeous doorknob option for opening and closing doors. Though you will still need to have an additional lock perhaps a piece of wood with padlocks on either end to keep any intruder from entering. It would look good if you are the Beast in the fairy tale Beauty in the Beast and wanted your palace to be Lalique themed which I would strongly advise in the favor of.

oprah's favorite things06

This is so hot sexy cool and fun. I love the guys that are half naked on the big towel and the guys that are also fully dressed on the towel. I love the chain link fence which adds kind of like a delicate touch to a tough sexy image. I think any person who loves wrestle would love something like this. I know I do and its is one of my favorite things. Please buy one for me you your pet and your niece and nephew.

oprah's favorite things07

This would look so good on you, or any person. Thierry Mugler was once a great star of the fashion world and his beautiful designs are still enjoyed by millions. I think this is one of his greatest pieces and it would look so good during various activiites including, watching tv, gardening, or watching tv about gardening or watching lord of the rings. Also the color is so pretty and happens to appear like a rainbow which is something the world needs more of rainbows.

 

oprah's favorite things08

Miss fame is you, I love this ball that is plated in literal gold. I think this would be good as a tree ornament or hanging from a necklace or optionally as one bauble in your Marie Antoinette collection of things to keep in your wig. Along with a variety of other things you could keep in there like a Shapeways pirate ship, sprigs of cinnamon and a leek. Maybe two leeks but at most three leeks, additionally please put the leeks inside the miss fame Lovaball that you may have purchased for yourself me or a friend

oprah's favorite things09

I love this vers piece of jewels. It has a rainbow of diamonds. A list of people who would look good in this is me you everyone you have every met Mariah Carey Fergie Fergalicious Anderson and Pit Bull. It is one of the favorite things and I love the beautiful color of the peridot diamonds as well as fuchsia.

oprah's favorite things10

I love the ladies in this pic, the boas are aso cute and I like that it gives them like a sassy look. The name of this artwork is called Our Freindship is Fab and I think that this would be so cute to give to a GF that you play dress up with or that you cuddle with sometimes. I really like the idea of having this and giving it as a gift. It is one of my favorite things that I found.

 

oprah's favorite things11

This is is a bag that has a pic of the hot and sexy star Pit Bull. I think he is so hot and I want to marry him like so bad. I put this on my list so that you can promote him within your own circle group of friends who need to know about cool and hot guys . It’s important to me to let people know about Pitbull on a bag so they can know what kind of man I am looking to marry: a hot man named after dog in a nice and beautiful suit that looks big.

oprah's favorite things12

This is the nice bracelet I like. It has a year on it that none of us were alive during. You can also probably use this to tie up certain things like a bag of chips that needs something to help it stay together in the pantry. My favorite part is the gradients which give it a very cool nascar vibe that makes me so happy to look at it. You can probably not buy this at your local Louis Vuitton store because Nicolas Ghesquiere keeps his good things on the internet and in the fashion shows only. If you would like to look like me you should buy this.

oprah's favorite things13

Many things on my list are precious but few are also valuable due to things that are not intrinsic to itself. For example this carved wooden planter once belonged to Oprah Winfrey herself who is cool and beautiful, like the planter. I can only recommend that you seek out the previous owners of various items that you have in the past purchased or will be purchasing in the future not only for Holiday gifts but also things that exist for other reasons because sometimes when a person of note value and worth has owned the object that can actually give more value and preciousness to the item that it wouldn’t have otherwise had. Please buy things celebrities owned and give them to me or a friend.

 

oprah's favorite things14

I like the jewelry that has the wings on it with the red gold. Red gold is gold with a red color. The stone too is red as well as the skull which is cool and good for anyone who might be steampunk or just dying. Additonaly I would recommend this ring to any person because it is drop dead gorgeous. Regardless this was my list and I hope you enjoyed the special treasures I found for you all.

milk crate

i brought you a box of sweet cakes but i am very worried that this is not ok! there are some reasons why i think this might not be ok to bring you sweet cakes.

here are the reasons:

if you already ate many sweet cakes today, then this is not ok, because you could be bored of them already.

also, if you have an allergy of sweet cakes, then this is not ok.

also, if sweet cakes give you bad dreams, then it’s not ok.

i am prepared to help you in case it’s not ok.

if you cry, i have a very long tissue for you to dry your eyes and blow your nose. it is many feet long, if you cry for a lot of minutes.

if you shout, i have a quiet hat, which i could take off and let you shout into it, if you want.
as a last resort, my shirt, it is similar to a tablecloth, which is similar to a stretcher, which can bring you to healing places, like a tropical island, or a bath tub. i will borrow it to you.

lovely

this specialty fragrance will remind everyone one that traffic cones are nothing to sneeze at. you better not mess with these traffic cones, which will totally show you what’s what if you mess with them! once every person smells this fragrance then they will never be rude to a traffic cone again. nobody hits them or kicks them over! cars keep their distance so nervously!

traffic cone feels strong and beautiful. she radiates deep orange confidence. she knows she is untouchable on the asphalt. this gives her reassurance that she is great, that she can do anything she believes in. traffic cone acknowledges her imperfections fearlessly. she has learned to love herself again.

how to behave around bats if you are not a bat technician

  1. don’t pout
  2. stand completely still
  3. make an obstacle course with tiny rings, so the bats can echolocate sound waves through the rings
  4. offer the bats peach gummies while apologizing

luggage strap is touching something all the time. she often touches cardboard, but sometimes  she touches suitcase. when this happens it’s a touch and also a big constricting hug – not like a bear, but like a huge tongue in the jungle – that color.

well when luggage strap has to stop touching suitcase, she releases her tongue hug, but she has to think a long time about it before she does. finally, after thoughtful deliberation, her muscles loosen, and she decides it’s ok to relax and let go now. luggage strap often worries that the suitcase will feel unloved and lonely if she does not give the best possible tongue hug. even though she always does, luggage strap never thinks it’s enough.

rug chunks don’t usually smell bad, and they are cleaned with relative ease at most stages of decomposition. when fresh, and slightly wet, it may be better to clean, as some of the moisture left from the rug chunks have yet to settle in the rug fibers and dry. while not crucial, it’s best to deprive rug chunks the opportunity of drying themselves off on your fine floor coverings.

when drying, though, it is fortunate that rug chunks do not rot or become excessively pungent. mostly they dry into crumbly rocks, and are quite easily removed from the rug. when rug chunks dry, the most effective cleaning strategy is to wet the affected area with a good disinfectant, one with a pleasant smell. dab with a cloth or paper towel repeatedly in order to allow the maximum amount of disinfectant to reach the affected fibers below. then, use an absorbent material like a cloth or a paper towel to absorb the remaining moisture by again dabbing the affected area.

once you have collected the rug chunks, they may be steeped for bitter teas or fashioned into attractive earrings.

first i would take this (boy) to an agreeably sized pond, as close to circular as possible. out of my pocket i would take out a large paper bag, balled up, and reveal to him that it is crammed to bursting with blueberries. suddenly, before he realizes what’s happening, a gang of very polite raccoons has descended upon us, eager to share the blueberries.
excited now, the (boy) would help me to instruct the raccoons to form a circle around the pond’s edge, until its entire circumference is bedazzled with hungry and well behaved raccoons. then, i would give half the blueberries to the (boy), and we would distribute each raccoon a single blueberry, one by one. because raccoons are exceptionally cleanly creatures, they will all dip their blueberries in the pond, giving them a gentle but thorough wash, before eating.

this never would have happened if as a child he was given a potato peeler.

this never would have happened if he had been taught to peel his bread.

he would have learned the values of peeling breads.

he would have learned the feeling of flour on hands, under finger nails.

there are many uses for peeled breads, but he never learned them.

he never learned that the bread skins were good, sturdy handbags.

he never learned that the soft insides were heavy clouds.

if only someone taught him better about those breads.

 

Model Behavior Magazine Vol. 2

We love Model Behavior Magazine! Cole Chickering, the artist and behind Woman’s Day (and the illustrations for refigural issue 2’s A Few Dinner Parties Ago) has announced a new volume of his print magazine, Model Behavior. It’s just our kind of style guide. Catch up with Cole below, and get a sneak preview of volume 2, available for preorder now.

Cover2

What is Model Behavior Magazine about?

Model Behavior Magazine is about women! But really, it’s about the idea of women. I work with appropriated imagery pulled from many sources, and then reassemble it through digital collage. The magazine has almost no text, encouraging the reader to spend time with the details of each image. It is subdivided into four sections, which are based on four major themes I see over and over again when looking through publications that are targeted at female consumers: Wellness, Safety, Home, and Silence.

Page21

What prompted you to extend Womans-Day on tumblr and instagram into sister project Model Behavior?

After I graduated from school, I started womans-day on tumblr. I was tired of making physical artwork (I had been making huge labor intensive embroideries that totally burned me out). I began focusing on research, gathering compelling imagery from the different libraries I worked at. I started sharing it on tumblr as a visual research archive. Eventually, since a large majority of my source materials are print, I felt compelled to return them back to their print origin in the form of a new magazine. Spending time with artists books and publications, and making friends who were publishing things themselves, helped me to see this as a possibility for myself despite never having worked with image editing programs or graphic design.

Page5

Where do you source the materials for your work, and what is that research like?

Most of my materials come from thrift store books and magazines, junk mail catalogs I get at work, and books I check out from the public library. I find that the lower the production quality is, the more I love it. Generally, I go through any source material page by page, seeking out images that feel like they are hitting a perfect note of uncanniness and constructed/objectified femininity. I also seek out chance word/image combinations that hint at a subliminal message or a subversion of intent.

Page37

What does Model Behavior feel like?

Model Behavior Magazine feels like… a fantasy of reality. I’m not very interested in the women of fashion magazines, but rather the illustrative everywomen that populate more serviceable publications (catalogs, textbooks, instruction manuals, self help books, advertising, stock photography). Women represented in these sources are a synthesis of cultural symbols and normalized expectations of femininity, pushing a message of good citizenship through fear and consumption. Their consistently coded appearance and repeated scenarios create a visual language that we all know, the language of idealized Western woman iconography.

Page50

What does Model Behavior look like?

Model Behavior Magazine looks like severed and spliced softness. Imagine womans-day, roughly chopped and carefully reconstituted into a totally fresh viewing experience.

Page65

Where can you find Model Behavior Magazine?

Right now, the best place to get it is from my website – www.modelbehaviormagazine.com

It is also sold in some retail locations, with more in the works.

I have lately turned to luxury as a way of ARRANGING THINGS, of keeping them together. Wet wet wet wet, wild is the whip, to this day what is most unholy is that vicious repetition! Spun glass into that ass, you saw what I saw, didn’t you? That guy whose sandal dangled by a thread as all those leathers lingered. What is it to be a man? I really couldn’t say.

Astrid Andersen

I know this kid who spent a few thousand dollars on Astrid Andersen, or maybe just a few hundred dollars, but he spent a lot, and I think he really enjoyed the air of self-importance it afforded – no, he would have had that anyway, but really I could tell he thoroughly appreciated that expensive wink at masculinity, like hey! I’m fuckable but funny. Jesus.

Rich White Finally It’s Violence

The look of an expensive autocrat in 60 years, or some eccentric energy tycoon, thank god, like earlier when I said I have gotten into luxury as a way of arranging things what i should have said is that i have relinquished myself to luxury, abandoned or surrendered me to luxury, it’s quite a splendid altar and I never miss the money.

Unabashed pleasure yields a punishment but still I never miss the money, never feel the lash, except when everything is white hot wouldn’t move and worse like when the dog is quiet and you know that Something Soon Will Happen but instead you know you settle into your parents’ leather couch and let yourself enjoy the Golden Girls, or Bergman, something rich and indulgent like that.
