Oprah, the show, may have shut down about two years ago, but "Oprah's Favorite Things," the holiday feature where mama bear herself recommends a slew of items and America buys them, lives on through O Magazine, its blog, and a two-hour primetime special dedicated to her favorite things.
The digital and print platforms are integrated with a contest where readers can win the 12 items on the list with codes found on icons in the magazine and on the blog's entry page beginning November 26. Also, Oprah's glorious return to the small screen will air November 18 on Oprah's network, OWN, and those viewers can also enter to win by texting a code that shows up at different points in the show. Let's just hope the winning entries are announced with a GIF of Oprah shouting, "YOU GET A JETSON'S E-BIKE, YOU GET A JETSON'S E-BIKE," etc.
Besides learning things like Oprah is "passionate about coconut and peanut spread," we have a glimpse into the fashion and beauty items that O is hankering for this season. The lineup includes a pink Tory Burch bag, a Tom Ford lipstick set, Edward Bess perfume, Coach puffer jackets, and a bedazzled pair of high tops courtesy of Michael Kors. Oprah and kicks and a puffer jacket? Television. Gold.
