Podcast Picks

by Jamie Sanford on March 10, 2016

I have been listening to podcasts for years, long before I had an iPhone with an app for it. I used an actual iPod for podcasts! One of the earliest shows I listened to was Daily Source Code, hosted by Adam Curry, a pioneer in the podcasting medium. I have also been a longtime fan of many of the Smodcast network podcasts.

Here are my current top 5 favorite podcasts, in no particular order.

1. Untitled: The Adam Savage Project.

I came across this podcast after being introduced to Tested.com by Adam Savage’s Twitter. (That’s a lot of steps.) Adam, Norm, and Will talk about a variety of subjects, and it’s a good time.

2. Death, Sex, and Money.

This recommendation came to me from Ellen Fondiler during a Miracle Worker meetup, and I added it immediately, but didn’t start listening until way later. I then binged on something like 30 episodes in a week. This podcast will make you laugh and break your heart, sometimes in the same episode. The host, Anna Sale, is remarkable.

3. Hollywood Babble-On

This show has been around for years, and I have not missed an episode. Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman started out with a show meant to skewer Hollywood news and celebrities, and now it’s a varied formula of regular bits, Ralph’s impressions, and audience participation.

4. What’s The Tee?

RuPaul and Michelle Visage are BFFs, and this is one of those podcasts that I love because you are just an extra person at the table. It feels so much like hanging out with your friends. This show has also had some amazing guests.

5. Another Round

Heben and Tracy drink and podcast, which WORKS. Their content is a great combination of guests and random chatter about topics ranging from homicidal house plants to racism in the United States. They even had Valerie Jarrett, and they got to interview her at the White House!

Honorable mention – I listen to a lot of podcasts, picking 5 was too hard.

Missoni for Target – My Picks

by Jamie Sanford on August 12, 2011

Target has released the look book for the upcoming Missoni collaboration on their Target Style Facebook page.

Naturally, I felt the need to pick favorites, to prepare myself for potential online shopping – I don’t dare attempt to go into a store to find things.

Let’s get on with my Missoni for Target picks.

These heels.  Mostly black but with a little something, a heel I won’t fall over in, and a gorgeous print on the inside? I’m in.

I don’t have kids, and I don’t know anyone with a baby girl that’s still a baby and not a toddler. However, I wish I did because this is the cutest little outfit!

So far, Missoni for Target is making me covet things that aren’t in my life, like little girls and a guest room for this fabulous bedding.

This robe isn’t just for bedtime right? I kind of want to wear it with a tank top underneath.

My response to things that are black and white is pretty Pavlovian.  I’m sure I’ve mentioned it on the blog before, but we went with black and white for our wedding (since I wear black 98% of the time, and I couldn’t get away with wearing black to my own wedding, it seemed like the best alternative) so I gravitate toward all things black and white.

Right, remember what I said about the black and white? That rug is calling my name.

Since heinous rain in NYC finished off my umbrella this week, I need a new one.  This is the only Missoni for Target item that I could justify purchasing out of actual need.

I don’t have any outdoor space, but now I need a patio to go with this patio set.  This is not much of a stretch from things I usually want from Target, I have been known to sit and relax in the patio furniture section when they have everything set up and fabulous. Of course I need a giant tent to hang out in all summer.

The full Missoni for Target lookbook can be seen here.  The collection comes into stores and Target.com on September 13th.

Nail Polish Picks for Small Holiday Gifts

by Jamie Sanford on November 15, 2010

Catch Me In Your Net

OPI's Catch Me In Your Net

Nail polish is one of my latest obsessions and so I have created my own Amazon store to showcase some of my favorites that I think would be great gifts for the holidays.

I stopped biting my nails earlier this year after doing so for as long as I can remember. (If only it were that simple to adjust other bad habits I’ve had for years and years…) So naturally, after I realized how expensive it was to be getting manicures from the professionals on a regular basis, I started buying nail polishes.  I started reading fabulous blogs about nail polish like All Lacquered Up and Let’s Go Sparkling.  I started experimenting with different sparkly topcoats.  I realized that like having colorful necklaces and bags, my nails can be a fun colorful accessory to go with my generally all-black outfits.

OPI has emerged as my favorite brand of nail polish, but I have polishes from a number of different brands. My current collection of nail polishes has inspired the creation of this store on Amazon, containing most of the polishes in my current collection!

I would love to hear about readers’ favorite polishes in the comments!
