May 15th segment
“From hot sauce to a manicure kit, Hoda and Jenna share their favorite things
Find out what they “can’t live without” this week!”
“There’s a very innovative manicurist. Her name is Alba,” Hoda raves about her must-have manicure set. “She sends all the things you need … And a step by step tutorial!”
This kit has everything you need for the perfect manicure, including cuticle oil, nail strengthened, you Essie nail polish shade of choice a hand and foot scrub and much, much more.”
“You can always find spicy condiments in Jenna’s pantry, and her current must-have is packed with a ton of flavor.
“This is their Verde hot sauce. It kind of reminds me of Texas,” said Jenna of her favorite hot sauce brand.
The South Carolina-based brand also makes a honey hot sauce that Jenna says is her “favorite kind.”
This segment featured creative and fun things to do with kids as well as just for adults featuring lifestyle expert Ashley Bellman.
I was excited to see Lite Brite on Hoda and Jenna’s favorite things list. It was one of my favorite things too!
Diamond painting uses small resin diamonds and an adhesive canvas to create a gorgeous image. It’s similar to paint-by-numbers and is a great long-term craft for older kids who can put up with the small pieces and intricate placement.”
“This is something for the whole family,” said Bellman, calling it one of her favorite options. The kit comes with 10 different card stock pages, each with a unique animal design, and plenty of stickers to help put the image together. “It’s really pretty. You could frame this, too, and the kids will feel really accomplished that they completed the art project.”
“Jenna noted that bread baking has become a quarantine staple, with plenty of home bakers showing off their creations on social media. Bellman recommended this kit for anyone looking to dig deeper into the popular new hobby.
“You create three different loaves, and you get to see the difference that happens when you put the salt in one, when you put the sugar in one, the yeast in the other,” Bellman said, calling it an experiment that the whole family can participate in. “It’s really cool to see what the ingredients do — and don’t worry, they all taste good.”
“The nostalgic 90’s toy has been updated for the current era, combining the best parts of the classic craft with modern technology.
“All the things that we know and love from the classic craft (are here),” said Bellman, calling attention to the cube’s variety of stencils and adding that people can also create their own designs. “I love this because you can put your art on display.”
“This is so fun and it’s so easy,” Bellman said, reassuring Jenna that her girls would love the multi-step kit that allows kids to choose their own lip balm flavors and decorate the tubes. It’s a little bit messy, but the craft is perfect for entertaining children of all ages.”
“For anyone looking to add some plants to their home, but not blessed with a green thumb, this prepared kit is the perfect first step.
“It comes with everything you need,” said Bellman, noting that the kit includes soil, pots, seeds and a thermometer. Step-by-step instructions mean you learn all sorts of things about the planting and growing process, making it a fun and educational experience.”
“Another craft you can make at home: candles!
The kit comes with meltable soy wax and scented essential oils and tins. Mix and match colors, scents and more to make the candle of your dreams.”
“If diamond painting is a little too detailed for your family, try a traditional paint-by-number kit. They’re just as intricate and time-consuming, but you won’t have to worry about small pieces. Bellman praised the Pink Picasso brand, which sends you the canvas, paint, and brushes in one neat kit.
“I like the idea that you can have one at your house, send one to your mom or best friend, and then you can organize a virtual paint and wine night,” Bellman said. “And then you’ll get this beautiful piece of art when it’s done.”
