It’s been months since the last edition of elaney’s Favorite Things! So meet the latest – the Capri Blue, Volcano candle. As a girl who loves candles, in the morning, in the evening, at weddings, at parties, while reading in bed, etc, a candle needs to be pretty good to call it a favorite. For many years, Votivo in Red Currant was the pick (#18 on favorite things list), but Capri Blue trumped Red Currant in such an upset that we were willing to do back to back candles on the favorite things list. Boom. So check it out. It’s amazing.

Forgetting about the Season Pass on Glee until two weeks ago has been the greatest thing to ever happen to cold Saturday and Sunday afternoons. After watching Glee for six hours this past Saturday (before ultimately going to bed at 8:30 – and then sleeping for 12 hours), we’ve successfully mastered the art of having glorious pop songs from past and present pop into our head. For example, any time we see something we like / want, we hear the lyrics from “Alone” by Heart.
A sample of how it works:
See Louboutin…“Till now…I always got by on my own…”
See Haitian orphans: “I never really cared until I met you!”
Go running in January: “And now it chills me to the bone…”
One look at the DVR...”How do I get you alone?!?!

That’s what the (Wo)Men At Work want to know (congrats to the 80′s aficionados still tracking). Jake is veto-ing ladies faster than a devout PCA man, and he is taking no prisioners. We think Jake likes the sweet, innocent types, and we have to guess that he ends up with Tenley or Corrie. Gia is too NYC, Ali is too cool / jaded, and Vienna is just too out there. Who do you think it can be now?

We loved Diane Kruger in Jason Wu (if you can pull off that bold color, more power too you) and Kyra Sedwick in Vera Wang (so fitted and age appropriate). Also love Christina Applegate’s look. Who do you like?
