Oprah can make you buy things you don't need

From Kindles to Ugg boots, Oprah puts her stamp of approval on an assortment of items during her annual "Oprah's favorite things" special. Even though it might not seem necessary to own hand-blown crystal Champagne glasses or an HGTV refrigerator, it seems like a great idea because Oprah says so. Of course she stresses that money can't buy happiness, but these items sure seem to help. -- Lora Victorio, latimes.com
