Baby it's COLD outside! 

Post holiday season and we are a few days into the new year, 2018.  

This year the Spring Equinox is on March 20th.  We are barely mid-way through winter.  Some of us still have to endure another 77 days of record breaking cold temps and snow!  Savvy shoppers know right NOW is the perfect time of year to take advantage of some mid-winter season sales on just about everything!  At the moment, we here at THE WANNA can't get enough of that warm and cozy feeling all day long.  Thats why we put together a list of mid-winter must haves that will have you and your fur kids, covered in cozy sherpa from the second you wake-up till the moment you slip into bed.  Sherpa, fleece, shearling, it's all the same to us!  Soft, warm and cozy is the main goal.  Here are some warm and cozy must haves that you wouldn't necessarily expect to be lined in sherpa and they are all absolutely worth investing in right now!  Stay warm and happy hunting! 

THE WANNA XO

"Soft and Cozy" Plush Sheet Set at HSN.com

"Soft and Cozy" Plush Sheet Set at HSN.com

 

SHERPA SHEET SET -  Get your priorities straight people.  If you can only afford one item on this list, start with a pair of these "SOFT and COZY" brand of life altering bed sheets.  The right sheets can literally change your life.  We all need to sleep and when it's freezing outside there is nothing better than slipping into a cloud of sherpa!  We personally tested out a ton of brands.  The consensus is that they all attract static cling.  So, keep a can of "Static Guard" around this time of year.  The higher priced sets maybe better tailored and slightly thicker but,  any price point on plush sheets and you can't go wrong  HSN sells a brand called "SOFT AND COZY" and the name truly speaks for itself. Splurge away.  You won't regret it!  

 

VCNY Velvet and Sherpa Comforter Set

VCNY Velvet and Sherpa Comforter Set

 

SHERPA COMFORTER SET - VCNY is known for their well made yet moderately priced bedding sets.  We LOVE the velvet and sherpa / fleece lined reversible comforter set in a slew of bejeweled colors to go with any decor.  Velvet on one side and soft cozy sherpa on the other!  Sherpa-riffic!

SHEARLING UGG SLIPPERS.jpg

SHERPA BOOTIES -  Yes, Ugg is the original of everything shearling and sherpa lined.  So, naturally we would suggest the UGG CLASSIC BOOT when it comes to keeping your tootsies warm and cozy outside.  When you are inside (home or office) the sherpa obsession continues with these sherpa lined slippers from Ugg.  No socks required!

SHERPA HOODIE - Not all sherpa hoodies are created equal.  This Free People "Fluffy Dolman Jacket" is like slipping into a cloud of cozy!  Love the sherpa style, neutral colors and the fact that you can layer this under anything.  Splurge worthy and a big hit this winter season!  

 

J.Crew "Teddy Coat in Plush Fleece"

J.Crew "Teddy Coat in Plush Fleece"

SHERPA COAT -  J.Crew is the master of cashmere but, this season they also re-defined sherpa.  The infamous "Teddy Coat" gets a sophisticated makeover from J.Crew this season.  We LOVE the "Plush Fleece" in the "Deep Peri" hue but, the version in black is forever classic.  Talk about huggable for hours and hours.

SHERPA CROWN CAP.jpg

SHERPA HAT  - CROWN CAP based in Canada is one of our favorite brands for cold weather accessories.  Their array of impeccably made assorted fur hats are beautiful yet, also practical.  No joke (sorry PETA) but, when it's -10 degrees outside, fur gets the job done.   This pick from CC is vintage leather and lined in sherpa, super stylish and moderately priced so if you leave it in a cab or lose it at the bar, it's not the end of the world...Well maybe.

 

sherpa rug.jpg

SHEARLING RUG - When your feet aren't in wrapped in sherpa sheets, slippers or boots any sherpa rug is a great stepping stone to the next warm and cozy destination.  We love this faux - fur version by Mercury Row, on sale at Wayfair.com, which is affordable and machine washable.  Sherpa heaven.

 

SHERPA THROW - Thanks to CARSTENS  your new fav snuggle buddy comes in several colors and styles.  Think Aspen meets a log cabin, moose tracks, bears and pine trees overlooking a tranquil snowy sunset surrounded by sherpa.  The best part is this baby travels.  From the sofa, office, plane to the car, you're covered in stylish sherpa some styles under $25 bucks!

BOWIE'S BLOOD AND DIEHARD FANS DISAPPOINTED BY GAGA'S FAILED GRAMMY TRIBUTE...

Gina Giordan

BOWIE'S BLOOD AND DIEHARD FANS DISAPPOINTED BY GAGA'S FAILED GRAMMY TRIBUTE...
By @Lancesirlot
See the innovative collaboration from music's biggest night. Subscribe NOW to GRAMMYs on YouTube: http://grm.my/1dTBF8H About GRAMMYs: The recording industry's most prestigious award, the GRAMMY, is presented annually by The Recording Academy. A GRAMMY is awarded by The Recording Academy's voting membership to honor excellence in the recording arts and sciences.

Let's get this straight, we are fans of Lady Gaga.  

There is no debating that she is an incredibly talented musician and actress.  

In fact, Ms. Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta's recent "Best Actress" Golden Globe for her performance in "American Horror Story," was well deserved.

But, Gaga's tribute performance at the 73rd Grammy Awards show, in honor of the legendary David Bowie, is getting some serious criticism by Bowie fans and even Bowie's son, Duncan Jones, who tweeted his disdain after the tribute, "overexcited or irrational, typically as a result of infatuation or excessive enthusiasm; mentally confused." Damn it! What IS that word!?

Gaga's tribute kicked off with an extreme close up on her face, with an image of Ziggy Stardust's famous make-up, superimposed over her.  When Gaga started singing that's when the performance took a turn for the worse.  Dressed in a high waisted jump suit that looked more Elvis (circa late 70's) then Ziggy, she rushed through a disjointed medley of Bowie's legendary hits, including Space OddityChangesZiggy StardustSuffragette CityRebel RebelFashionFameUnder PressureLet's Dance and Heroes.

Unfortunately, Gaga's tribute seriously missed the mark.  

Gaga's performance left fans wondering, was this a showcase for Gaga or a Bowie centric tribute? 

Gaga's performance was more about a Gaga resurrection or comeback into the current music scene, then about honoring Bowies contributions and legacy to Rock music.  

The tribute was chaotic and more about Gaga transforming into Bowie (at one point she even distorted her voice to emulate his signature sound) versus Gaga just simply being Gaga and singing (in her signature voice) a tribute to Bowie.   We would have preferred Gaga chose one song and put her unique spin on it.  

We must admit, the entire production of the awards ceremony also displayed an unformatted, chaotic, disjointed collection of visuals.  The Director was off in the pacing and the sound quality confused viewers. 

Now, lets not shoot the messenger.  Clearly, Gaga stepped up to the massive challenge.  She is an obvious fan and where were the other artists to pay tribute to Bowie this year?  Not one other well known musician felt compelled to honor Bowie? 

There is no question Gaga is a super fan of Bowie and in the end she did ultimately honor his legacy just by taking a risk.  Sometimes the risk reward doesn't payoff but, taking a risk is essentially honoring the essence of what Bowie was all about.

Speaking of the music scene or shall we say, lack of music and more about an abundance of narcissistic self aggrandizement, the current music scene is entrenched in a formulaic machine that generates at best, mediocre music.  Overall, the music generated today seriously lacks elements of what Bowie's music symbolized:  real substance, originality, authenticity and a sense of sacrifice and struggle.  

Bottom line, if Bowie represents the passing of a musical era and Gaga is the Millennial representative expected to carry on the spirit of Ziggy Stardust, then what will be the future of Rock and Roll?  

Will any new artist truly carry on the substantial cultural impact that Bowie and several artists of that era contributed to society?

Only time will tell...
