    If any of you are waiting with bated breath for Oprah to release her Favorite Things list for 2018 (I know I am), here are some of *our* favorite things from across the years of Oprah's favorite things to tide you over:

    1. A Bialetti pasta pot with a strainer built *right into* the lid — and a twist & lock feature so you never lose a single noodle.

    2. CoverGirl Lash Blast Mascara, because it's been a fan-favorite for yeeaaarrss for a reason (it was one of Oprah's favorite things in 2008!) — we're talking 10 times the volume with a single swipe.

    3. Ridiculously cozy slipper socks with a thick sherpa fleece lining to keep your tootsies toasty and rubber soles so you don't go skidding on shiny floors.

    4. A bottle of Butter London nail polish to deliver gorgeous, chip-resistant color and long-lasting shine *without* DBP or formaldehyde — but *with* calcium and vitamins A, C, and E to protect your nails.

    5. A foldable nine-compartment tote that'll make you finally stop ~wine-ing~ about carrying an assortment of your favorite bottles from the liquor store.

    6. A tin of Garrett's Popcorn (Chicago mix, obv), because the liiiines around the block to get hands on these kernels don't lie.

    7. A teeny tiny Bluetooth speaker in the shape of an adorable animal that'll release a surprising amount of sound from its tiny body.

    8. An Amazon Echo Show that'll combine everything amazing about Alexa with a screen, so you can watch news clips, any video on Amazon, see the weather report, make to-do lists, monitor any security or baby cameras, and so so so much more.

    9. A pair of Spanx active compression pants with moisture-wicking fabric and a comfortable high waist, but *no* center seam (aka no ~riding up~ in the front).

    10. Basically any of the Galaxy pastries available at Williams Sonoma — Oprah especially loves the chocolate lava cake (left) and croissants (right).

    11. A pair of Nike Air Presto sneakers for a truly comfortable (and stylish) look so you can strut your stuff without tiring out your feet.

    12. A triple-insulated stemless tumbler to keep cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot for far longer; plus, they have spill-proof lids and non-slip silicone bottoms so you stay wine stain-free (even after you've already had two glasses).

    13. An anti-stress coloring book and neon colored pencil set filled with 75 unique designs to focus your brain and keep you from feeling overwhelmed. I'd imagine running your own Oprah-level empire gets stressful!

    14. A neoprene case that'll make tangled earbuds a relic of the past, because you've got to get those tunes pumping ASAP.

    15. Kenneth Jay Lane cubic zirconia earrings in a rhodium-plated brass setting so you can add a touch of vintage glam to every outfit.

    16. A Breville panini press that'll create deliciously brown, crispy outsides and gooey, non-crushed insides for the ultimate sandwich every time. Or the ultimate wrap, quesadilla, croissandwich, or anything else that floats your boat.

    17. Peeper's sunglasses for a retro look people will think you spent a lot of money on. They're available in polarized regular sunglasses AND reader sunglasses so you can enjoy a novel in the sun!

    18. A Ninja kitchen system with a smart base and four different attachments including a classic crushing pitcher for frozen drinks, a 24-ounce single-serve blender cup, a food processing bowl, and a spiralizer.

    19. A cheeky drink marker set that'll help you stand out from all the other neighborhood wine nights.

    20. A 23andMe DNA testing service so you can get the ultimate peek into your family history. Just provide a saliva sample using the kit and send it back for results in 6-8 weeks.

    21. A Philips Sonicare Diamondclean toothbrush for your best checkup at the dentist ever. It has four modes, three intensities, and three different brush heads so you can customize your cleaning to your dental needs. And it has sensors to show you on your smartphone where you missed so you can improve your brushing habits.

    22. A 22k gold–dipped necklace to help you show off your zodiac sign in the prettiest way possible.

    23. A Prepara herb preserver so you're never kept from having more flavorful food just because the basil went limp too quickly.

    24. A KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer that'll be a seriously investment-worthy piece you can hand down to your kids — really, these machines last for-e-ver.

    25. A set of seven gourmet hot sauces you can keep in your bag for on-the-go flavor emergencies. The bottles range from mild ones like garlic herb to a crazy hot ghost pepper sauce that'll make anyone sweat.

    26. A fan-favorite makeup brush with domed hairs and an angled handle for an airbrushed-looking application and minimal product absorption.

    27. A Julep whipped lip mousse vault for anyone whose lipstick collection can NEVER be complete. Even after adding these 25 gorgeous super-pigmented matte colors.

    28. A truly classic pair of short Ugg boots — I don't care what you think about the aesthetics of these bbs, they are toasty warm and when it's 13° in January, your toes will be so happy you bought them.

    29. An all-edge baking pan and a box of Ghiradelli Double Chocolate brownie mix for the chewy-chrunchiest dessert you've ever dreamed of.

    30. A Kindle Paperwhite with a glare-free screen so you feel like you're reading an *actual* book — without having to have to schlep around a heavy 1,000-page volume (looking at you, A Song of Ice and Fire).

    31. A machine washable, super-cuddly Jellycat stuffed animal any child will love more than they love you, sorry.

    32. Philosophy's Hope in a Jar, a much-beloved moisturizer formulated with lactic acid to (gently) exfoliate and remove dead skin cells while adding tons of hydration and radiance.

    33. A Philips Air Fryer for perfectly crispy fries, wings and more with little or *no* oil. How does it work? Rapidly circulating hot air cooks food evenly (and adds crunch). Or it could be magic, idk.

    34. An extra-large NARS kabuki brush to evenly buff loose powders onto your face *and* neck and décolletage for a flawless finish (and no weird line at your jaw where your foundation ends).

    35. A frozen dessert maker that'll transform any frozen fruit into a delicious ice cream-like treat in just a few minutes.

    36. A 10-piece Le Creuset "Oprah set" so you can set up your whole kitchen with just one purchase. There's a reason so many people love these super durable pots, pans, and Dutch ovens.

    37. A Dyson Supersonic hair dryer that'll be absolutely worth the splurge — it's super lightweight, but the powerful motor will cut your drying time way down while protecting your hair and keeping it incredibly shiny.

    38. A year-long notepad with a quote for each day to inspire you as you jot down everything on your daily to-do list. Maybe now you'll get as much done as Oprah.

    39. Tom Ford matte lipsticks for velvety, smooth, and highly-pigmented color and a long-lasting and *comfortable* finish.

    Now this can be you:
