A new month brings new discoveries. In this edition of The SB Hot List, we share our favorite holiday-themed items, beauty products, snacks and more. Here are 10 of our latest obsessions that we swear by!
The SB Hot List: December 2020
Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Latte Creamer
“I’ve been loving the new Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Latte creamer. It is definitely on the sweet side, but my normal Starbucks order is a Cinnamon Dolce Cappuccino, so this saves me some money.” — Bailey Torkelson, SB Editorial & Marketing Assistant Manager
Two New Podcasts
“I am obsessed with two new podcasts — Do No Harm and SmartLess. Do No Harm is heavy — it’s an investigative podcast that reveals two families who were wrongfully accused of child endangerment by Texas Child Protective Services. As a parent, it strikes so many chords and shows major flaws in the system.
“SmartLess, on the other hand, is totally light-hearted and hilarious. Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes and Will Arnett host the show. They take turns surprising each other with the celebrity guests they invite on the show and interview. A few past guests include Ron Howard, Paul McCartney and Maya Rudolph. It comes out each Monday — it’s a GREAT way to start the week!” — Ashley Haugen, SB Director of Editorial
“My sister gave me this diffuser for Christmas last year, and it has become an essential part of my daily routine. It creates a spa-like ambiance during your long days at home during quarantine and fills your home with subtle but dreamy scents. I can testify to the fact that it’s an incredible gift, but if you want to take it to the next level, you can also gift some personalized scents. My sister gave me the ‘Colorado Homesick’ scent, and it was the sweetest tribute to home!” — Peyton Haecker, SB Digital Marketing Analyst

The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show
“I recently watched The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show for the first time, and I can’t believe I waited so long to watch it. Between the music and star-studded lineup, it’s everything I could possibly want from a Christmas special. I’ve even put it on in the background a few times while I make dinner or clean. It’s one of those things that immediately puts me in a good mood.” — Brianna Goebel, SB Editorial Assistant
Buxom Full-On Plumping Lip Polish
“Buxom’s Full-On Plumping Polish comes in tons of colors and plumps up your lips while also providing high shine.” — Anne Henley Walker, SB Digital Marketing Analyst
“My hairdresser recommended this dry spray wax to me a while back, and I quickly fell in love. It’s the only product I’ve ever found that manages to tame my cowlick, and it’s cruelty-free!” — Lacy Green, SB Traffic Manager
RONXS Candle Lighter
“I always love to have candles burning, especially during the holidays. I recently saw this super neat electric, rechargeable candle lighter on Amazon and immediately ordered it. I like that it can be charged with a USB, and you never have to worry if you have a full lighter on hand!” — Taylor Justice, SB Birmingham Client Success Representative
Magic Spoon Cereal
“I haven’t actually tried this yet, but I’m dying to get my hands on Magic Spoon! I’m a big cereal gal, so I’m really interested in these healthy alternatives to my favorite childhood cereals. I’ve heard mixing the cocoa and peanut butter tastes like Reese’s Puffs, and I’m here for that. The frosted flavor will hopefully keep me away from my beloved Frosted Flakes. Now all I need is for them to come out with a Lucky Charms alternative. Nom nom!” — Lauren Cummings, SB Business Coordinator
COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch
“It’s not the most fun thing in the world, but COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patches definitely help fight off the dreaded ‘maskne’ and clear up breakouts overnight. I swear by these little guys.” — Emily Beene, SB Regional Account Executive
“I’ll admit I may have a bit of an obsession, but my favorite holiday Hot List item is my Christmas gnomes. They’re kitschy, they’re goofy, they’re wonderful, and I have a gaggle of them — my own village, really. I’ve purchased them all over, but there are some adorable locally made options by artist Tina Waller at Abode Mercantile in East Nashville. They’re on my Christmas list!” — Jenna Bratcher, SB Nashville Lead Writer & Associate Editor
