Oprah Winfrey's "Ultimate Favorite Things"

If there is any woman who may be able to influence the economy, in terms of consumer spending at least in the United States, Oprah Winfrey may be the one who can - afterall she has made it to third spot in Forbes Magazine's List of The World's 100 Most Powerful Women in 2010.

After Oprah's "Ultimate Favorite Things" show aired on Friday, people were all excitedly tweeting and Facebooking about the things on her list particularly A 7-day cruise on Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas with airfare included. This massive ship contains the first-ever 3D movie theater at sea, a two-story dance floor, an ice skating rink, a zip line, a rock-climbing wall and its very own park.

Among the top of Oprah's list is the range of Andre Walker Hair Products. Andre Walker is and has been Oprah's hairdresser for the past 25 years and his famous book, Andre Talks Hair! must surely be on bookshelves all over the US. Andre Walker's new haircare line, which is designed for all hair types include keratin shampoo, keratin conditioner, shine-enhancing Q-oil and root-covering hair makeup, which Oprah has been using. These are among the things Oprah gave away at her "Ultimate Favorite Things" show on Friday.

Homemakers are going online buying the Baker's Edge Nonstick Edge Brownie Pan and the Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownie Mix which also made it to Oprah's favorites list. The Simple Lasagna Pan is also a favorite thing of Oprah's with its unique sidewalls, which keep noodles and layers neatly stacked.

Others that make Oprah's Ultimate Favorite Things include A Course In Weight Loss: 21 Spiritual Lessons for Surrendering Your Weight Forever by Marianne Williamson; the Breville Panini Press grill and sandwich maker, which she has bought 22 of these as gifts for other people; Jay-Z's book Decoded; The Beginning (Deluxe Edition) by the Black Eyed Peas which will be in stores November 30, 2010; Elfa Customizable Closet System from the Container Store; Kiva Gift Card, Courtesy of Groupon; Nike "Free Run+" Shoes; Nikon D3100 14.2MP Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-S DX VR Nikkor Zoom Lens; and more, all 23 of them. Well, there you have it. These should give you an idea for your Christmas shopping..


  1. Nothing here I'd buy, but if Oprah wants to send me a Nikon for Xmas, I won't refuse it.

  2. LOL! Hi, PandaB. Yeah, I could do with one of those cameras too though I'd need lessons. Hope your Saturday has been wonderful so far.

  3. Anything Oprah wants to send me, I wouldn't refuse. ;)

  4. Royal Carribean has been doing alot of advertisements in Singapore recently, but I think the price's too steep for me. Rather go back to my Genting. Heh heh heh.

    I have an entrepenuer friend who works hard because she has only 1 aim - to appear on the Oprah Winfey Show. That's how inspiring Oprah is!

  5. "Ultimate Favorite Things" is a newer brand in the market. It is a initiative of Oprah Winfrey to provide some good and demanding to its customers. There is a wide range of collection to choose from.

  6. I only wish Oprah Winfrey can give me a free all expense paid trip to Europe! : )
