Lately lots and lots of things have been cracking me up, and recently, it's Gwyneth Paltrow.  I'm not a die hard fan, and have seen some of  her movies, but reminded me of why this Oscar, Golden Globe, and EmmAward winner would just be so cool to hang out with for a cup of oolong tea and maybe a salad. I'm not so sure she'd be keen on a cheeseburger, but I could be wrong about that.

If you didn't know, Paltrow created the company Goop in 2008, and Netflix has featured Goop Lab in a recent documentary.  At the end of the day, Darwinfish and I are both wondering if she tested herself or someone else to come up with this candle. (lol) And we both agree that her marketing skills are fabulous!  This sold out for $239.50 on eBay the last time I checked, but you can grab it from Poshmark for $200, or get this sexy citrusy bergamot and rose scent at the bargain price of $75 over at
