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!

"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

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 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.

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.

MUSIC YOU WANNA HEAR REVEALS THE BEST ROCK ALBUM OF THE YEAR!

Gina Giordan

SONGS FROM THE STARDUST ROAD HITS ITUNES & APPLE MUSIC TODAY!

www.stardustroad.com

www.stardustroad.com

At a time, when Hip-Hop is king, Country is cool, and Pop is a princess, real Rock & Roll might as well be the ugly step-sister.

Those days of stepping out in the East Village, to find a rock band performing live at a legendary venue on every corner, are long gone.  Both the venue and the bands are no where to be found.  Rock and roll institutions have been replaced by international clothing chains and drug store theme parks.

Yet, just when the future of rock appears bleak, one underground band surfaces with a new album, that injects a powerful surge of hope and inspiration into the world of music.

The New York, Bronx born band, SWEET CYANIDE released a new album today, SONGS FROM THE STARDUST ROAD.  Thirteen tracks, written and composed by SWEET CYANIDE’s front man, Sal Scoca.  The album is coming off of their 2012 rock radio hit, "IN MY WORLD" and 2014 rock radio hit, "BETTER AT GOODBYES." 

STARDUST ROAD is an unexpected yet, genius evolution from SWEET CYANIDE’S original aggressive, hard rock sound.  Each track on the new album delivers a distinctive mix of inventive electric modernity, layered between daringly clever lyrics that all culminate into a unique rock experience. 

STARDUST ROAD, has the power to change the way the world emotionally digests a group of songs released together at the same time, by offering fans a few different ways to experience the album.

Each song can stand alone as it’s own distinctive sound and experience.  Yet, if you listen closely to the lyrics from beginning to end, each track seamlessly flows from one scene to the next, ultimately revealing a captivating character and raw storyline.  But, make no mistake, the whole is not greater then the sum of it’s parts.  Just different.

The multi-level experience that STARDUST ROAD delivers fans, is what industry insiders would refer to as a, “concept album.”  The concept may have a thematic unity or artistic cohesiveness.  The group of songs may be unified by a theme, which can be instrumental, compositional, narrative, or lyrical. 

Most rock historians agree, the first concept album was by the Beatles' in 1967;  Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Other famous concept albums include:  The Who's Tommy in 1969, Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon in 1973 and the Eagles' Hotel California in 1977. 

Setting out to create a concept album is quite ambitious.  Writing a successful song is hard enough.  Now, imagine trying to create thirteen individual songs that offer double the pleasure?  Seems almost impossible to pull off. 

Seems impossible, but Scoca pulled it off.  STARDUST ROAD is a successful concept album. 

Yet, when we asked Scoca to share the concept, he said, “I don’t want the concept to over power or influence how someone interprets the sound.  The storyline is not up in your face.  It’s suggested.  Abstract enough so the listener still has the room to think and create a personal connection.  I guess when you create a concept that is the risk you take.”

It’s a risk that paid off for Scoca.  Tracks like New Illusions and Zero Hour are epic hits on their own and when you listen to the entire album, they weave an intense thought provoking story, that delivers both musically and lyrically.

Scoca said while he was in the trenches of creating the album he was listening to a lot of music from the late 70’s and early 80’s, “I kept going back and forth listening to Hall and Oates, Peter Gabriel and Bowie.” 

Sal also revealed, “Initially the concept of the album was inspired by Ziggy Stardust.  I always wondered to myself, what ever happened to Ziggy?  What if Ziggy was resurrected now, in the year 2016?  A time where the majority of society is obsessed with celebrities, fame and selfies.  Basically exploring the concept of…Are you chasing the dream or is the dream chasing you?”

You can form your own opinion and download the album which premieres on ITUNES today. 

You can also experience the album live.  SWEET CYANIDE plans to make their annual pilgrimage cross-country from NYC to South Dakota.  The band will be performing live on the main-stage at the 76th annual Sturgis Buffalo Chip Music Festival.  Sturgis is a real tradition for the band.  Past years SWEET CYANDIE has performed live and shared center-stage with Alice Cooper, Def Leppard, Cheap Trick, Five Finger Death Punch, and Motley Crue.  This year, Friday, August 12, 2016, the band will be performing live with Pop Evil and Buckcherry.  You can buy SWEET CYANIDE LIVE @ STURGIS tickets HERE.

Steven Tyler, Janie's Fund

Aerosmith front man, Steven Tyler has a lot to celebrate this Father’s Day!  He is a proud Grandpa twice over to Milo and Sailor.  A Dad to four children.  Son Taj.  Daughter’s Mia, Chelsea and Liv who is pregnant with her third child and due to give birth later this summer.  Yet, this Father’s Day is even more special for Tyler.  He is also a proud father figure to thousands of young girls! 

Tyler is the founder of a successful philanthropic initiative, Janie’s Fund.  The fund benefits Youth Villages, which is a national organization that provides services to help young girls overcome serious neglect and abuse.  Tyler gives a lot more to Janie’s Fund then just his name.

Recently, Janie’s Fund chose several young girls, who are current members of the Youth Villages organization from Tennessee, to go on a special trip to NYC!   These lucky ladies attended an exclusive event at Lavo restaurant and nightclub on E. 58th street, in midtown Manhattan.  The event honored Tyler and Janie’s Fund.  The evening was generously hosted by Dujour Magazine and CEO, Jason Binn.

Tyler made a grand entrance into the event. The rocker arrived in his beloved car, a Hennessy Venom GT.  Tyler stopped traffic when hundreds of photographers and fans gathered around him to catch a glimpse.  Tyler officially announced his “baby” is up for auction and all the proceeds will benefit Janie’s Fund.  You can bid on Tyler's car by clicking on this link HERE! 

THE WANNA host, Gina Glickman Giordan, had the opportunity to interview Tyler one on one at the recent event.  The Hall of Fame inductee talked to THE WANNA about giving back and revealed how he honors his own father, Victor Tallarico, on Father's Day.

Watch THE WANNA episode below, starring; Steven Tyler!  

This episode of THE WANNA is dedicated in loving memory to, Steven Tyler’s father, Victor Tallarico
