Oprah's Top Picks for Summer
Watch the crowd go wild when Oprah announces her Top Picks for Summer show!
Oprah had second thoughts, however, when she remembered something she discovered recently at Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump's private club in Palm Beach. "It's definitely something I'll be having this summer, and I definitely want you to have it too. So I said, 'Well, maybe I do have a few favorite things for summer!'"
Unwilling to release the secret recipe without top-notch security, Donald's come to the Oprah Show to deliver it himself! He's joined by Mar-a-Lago's executive chef, Jeff O'Neill, who is finally revealing how to make his mouthwatering burger. The secret ingredients? Green apples and chutney. "I couldn't figure it out," Oprah says. "I'm eating the thing, and it's so moist, and there's a sweetness to it that I've never had. Apples and chutney inside the burger. It's unbelievable!"
The Mar-a-Lago Turkey Burger will be permanently available at the Trump Bar and Grille in Trump Tower in New York City, open to the public for lunch and dinner. It will also be served during lunch in Chicago at Sixteen, the Trump International Hotel restaurant.

Top the burger with your regular fixings—ketchup, mustard, relish—but be sure to add Jeff's pear chutney sauce for some extra oomph.

Heidi is sharing the hottest swimsuit fashions for summer, but says not to worry if a certain trend isn't right for you. "I think you should wear whatever makes you feel confident and comfortable," she says. "So anything kind of goes, really."

"Back when I was a reporter in Baltimore, if I was having a bad day, I'd go buy a new lipstick," Oprah says. "I'd feel like my life is going to be better—I have a new lipstick!"
Gayle King, Oprah's best friend and the editor-at-large of O, The Oprah Magazine, has stopped by to present her favorite of the O-ward winners. When it comes to makeup, Gayle says packaging can be misleading. "Don't you hate it when you get something in very pretty packaging, and then you open it up and the product is not as good?" Gayle asks. "The thing with Yves Saint Laurent is that we thought the packaging was so pretty and we liked all of the products. It was hard to pick just one, so we picked everything in the line—the marbled blush, the lipstick and the eyeshadow."
Another standout is the CoverGirl LashBlast mascara. "This was the first time anybody's come to the offices with a scientist to explain how [the makeup] works," Gayle says. "This is the scientific explanation: A dual polymer system keeps the mascara from migrating underneath your eyes. That's code for it doesn't smudge."
OPI Nic Stick's Paint & Go Nail Lacquer is a portable pen filled with nail polish, perfect for anyone who smudges as soon as they leave the salon.
No one wants to wear heavy makeup in the summer heat, so Gayle's final two favorites made the grade for their light texture. "Clé de Peau lipstick is silky and feels light on your lips," Gayle says. "And I like the fact that it's so sleek and slender in your purse."

When you're choosing a destination, think outside the box. A big city is a great choice because most of the residents go out of town. "Hotels are cheaper, and it's amazing all the free stuff that happens in a city," Samantha says.
Taking a summer escape to a winter ski resort is another affordable option. "These places are beautiful in the summer," Samantha says. "The hotel deals are excellent because it's the off-season. You can hike, bike, swim or take the ski lift and have a picnic at the top of the mountain."
If you're itching to get to Europe, consider heading to South America instead. "Try Buenos Aires, Argentina," Samantha says. "The city has the look of Paris and the feel of Italy, but the hotels are a third of what you would pay across the Atlantic."
