Picks Of The Week

Obsession of the week: My new prescription sunglasses.

I was finally allowed to visit my optometrist last week (thank you, health insurance!). Thankfully my eyes have hardly changed, so I was able to forgo the purchase of new eyeglass lenses and invested in a pair of sunglasses. Prescription lenses are ridiculously pricey for a pair of shades (no thank you, health insurance), so thank goodness I had a $100 off a lens and frame purchase coupon from Lenscrafters. I am so glad I can protect my eyes from the summer sun. I even got to sport my newest fashion accessory at our company picnic Wednesday.

Video stream of the week: “Pretty Little Liars” on Netflix Instant.

“Pretty Little Liars”

Season 3 of this addictive ABC Family series began June 5, and Netflix is currently streaming the 22 episodes in Season 1. On July 3, Season 2 will be available. I hear the Rosewood girls find out who A is in Season 2!

Music stream of the week: “The Lion The Beast The Beat” by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.

AOL music is streaming this gem, the band’s fourth studio album. Grace Potter is a sweet-voiced rocker whose voice I had not taken the time to enjoy until this album, as I didn’t care for 2010’s single, “Paris (Ooh La La).” But I dig this good new-fashioned rock. Give a special listen to the upbeat “Loneliest Soul” and the killer ballad “One Heart Missing.”

I snatched up the album for $5 as Amazon’s daily deal Tuesday, but it’s worth the $10 it’s currently selling for on Amazon.

Viral video of the week: “Call Me Maybe” starring Jimmy Fallon, Carly Rae Jepsen and The Roots.

The most sugary pop song of the spring and soon-to-be summer hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart Wednesday. I venture to say this cutesy “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” version convinced enough people to request and buy the tune, causing Canadian Carly Rae to knock off Australian Wally De Backer aka Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know.”

    Is there anything Jimmy can’t do?
