To-do lists are often equated with stress and busyness, but this round-up of recommendations is designed to wind you down when your period arrives. Here’s what to watch, read, listen to, buy, and do for some maximized downtime during that time of this month.
The holidays are on the horizon, along with the sort of chilly weather that finds us cozying up indoors. This month, use the lead-up to the busier portion of the season to rest up with rom-coms, swoony tunes, and books that promote hope and gratitude (the better to get into that Thanksgiving mood). And as for the Black Friday sales, we suggest indulging in a restock of the beauty products that help you feel your best. Here, The Pill Club’s picks for November, chosen to enhance your autumnal recharge.
The onset of the holidays means one thing for certain: Seasonal romantic comedies are coming your way. This month, Netflix’s Love Hard—starring Nina Dobrev—arrives with a tale of online dating, catfishing, attractive strangers, and the prospect of finding love in unexpected places (and people).
Hope is the undercurrent of Dr. Jane Goodall’s impossibly inspiring life—and her latest work is a tribute to it and her own reasons for cultivating it, from the resilience of nature to the indomitable human spirit. Consider this a go-to gift for those around you who may be having a hard time finding the silver linings around current clouds.
Taylor Swift is reclaiming Red! Originally released in 2012, Red tells a story of heartbreak: the highs, the lows, the memories, and the wild, often unexpected growth. It also marks the moment when Swift began to move toward her identity as a pop star, trading that characteristic country twang for a more mainstream lean and a bevy of evocative musical styles. With the songs now available on Swift’s own terms, listening is an even more empowering experience.
