Aries | Aries rising

Intense is an understatement for the recent full moon in your sign. Last week was a call to push through something that’s had you in its grip on a deep level. You tend to challenge anything, or anyone, that tries to block, dominate or control you. This week starts by plunging an ongoing difference between your partnerships and career. The trick is to clear old fears and get the balance right. Find that sweet spot between overdoing and underdoing it. Allow transformation and deep impact on the career front while continuing to shine and have your personal needs met in a relationship is your cosmic mission. All sorts of intel are yours this week if you stay open to non-ordinary ways of tuning in. Note your dreams by keeping a dream journal or voice record them on rising before they evaporate. what signs symbols and synchronicities resonate?

Taurus | Taurus rising

The effects of the full moon in your zen zone signals something you have needed to put to rest. This is the end of a cycle emotionally so you are clear for new growth and a new emotional cycle, if not a new boo. Additionally, allow the extra emotional and psychic energy to power your important projects. Your work and your daily routine are the containers that keep your show on the road. You have an important contribution to make and you need to push through your beliefs about what you’re capable of. Transform black and white thinking to discover the grey wiggle room supporting new choices. By now you’ll be aware of what that external situation is. Don’t let a great opportunity pass you by because you haven’t installed the latest cosmic update into your internal hard drive.

Gemini | Gemini rising

As the social butterfly of the zodiac, big reveals in your social stratosphere are significant. The pressure to merge resources or foot responsibilities that aren’t yours should have clarification and so be easier to resolve this week. Deal with those ties that bind so you can enjoy your independent connections. Resolve to make the most of your friendships, as there is a new crew waiting for you to join them, ready to nurture and cheer you on with a pioneering vision. Your work and public image zones are aligned so be open to new information coming your way as well as an opportune or magical moment of understanding or connection. Regardless of how it happens, you’ll download some helpful information or ideas so remember to record them as they may be so ephemeral, they’ll dissipate on the wind.

Tatcha Sale 2019: Best Beauty Products to Buy

ICYMI, Meghan Markle has great skin. But let’s be real: You didn’t miss it, because standing at that altar, the now Duchess of Sussex was a walking advertisement for the power of skin care (plus face massages and probably good genes). The latter two might not be easily attainable, but Markle’s skin care routine just became way more feasible to own.

Tatcha, the expensive-but-worth-it brand behind the Duchess’s exfoliator of choice, just announced its biggest sale of the year is finally here. That means the brand is offering 20 percent off everything on its website from October 13 through October 20 with the promo code FRIENDS19. A Tatcha sale doesn’t happen often, so when it does, it’s worth stocking up.

As for that skin care staple of Markle’s, the exfoliator in question is Tatcha’s Rice Enzyme Powder, which is the rare scrub you can use every day without messing up your skin. Because while other scrubs typically rely on ground-up shell powder or mild acids to clear off your dead skin, Tatcha’s formula uses a combination in the gentlest way possible. Per Markle, “It just sort of foams on your face and gives you a really subtle exfoliation.” That foam forms when water activates the rice and papaya enzymes, and then comes for dullness, leaving no prisoners. The powder is $65 for a jar, but with the weeklong discount it’s down to $52.

Elsewhere in what to shop, Tatcha’s Violet-C Radiance Mask is a favorite among Glamour staffers, who swear there is nothing that quite gives your skin an instant glow like it. The brand is also responsible for two frequent Sephora best-sellers. Year after year Tatcha’s Water Cream is one of the retailers’ best-selling moisturizers, unsurprising given its oil-free gel texture. Heaviness isn’t in the Tatcha lexicon; the moisturizer sinks into your skin in two seconds flat, and yet it keeps your skin hydrated for hours. Similarly lightweight is the brand’s new undereye cream and concealer hybrid, The Pearl, which has a pearlized formula that reflects light as it lays down hyaluronic acid and brightening niacinamide.

And while we’re always hesitant to judge a product’s worth by how often it’s out of stock (you never know what’s going on behind the scenes), our senior beauty editor, Lindsay Schallon, attests to the greatness of the brand’s thrice-sold-out primer. Yup, primer: the thing that everyone looks at and thinks, Really?, until now. While most primers prove to be pretty worthless, Lindsay says that “this one somehow can make a $10 foundation look like a $70 one. The tiniest bit goes a long, long way, so it more than makes up for its cost.”

You’ll Never Believe How Kim Kardashian Planned to Go to the Bathroom at the Met Gala

Kim Kardashian‘s skin-tight Thierry Mugler gown was one of the most-talked-about looks at the 2019 Met Gala. But it turns out there was a rather large downfall to the dress: she couldn’t go to the bathroom.

The corset Kardashian wore under her dress to narrow her waist was so tiny she couldn’t even sit down—let alone use the toilet—so she had a contingency plan in place in case she needed to, um, relieve herself during fashion’s most glamorous night.

In a clip from an upcoming episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, we find out just how concerned she was about the situation.

“If I have to pee, it’s a problem,” Kardashian tells her crew.

Her friend, Natalie Halrco, suggests she could wear a diaper, but the SKIMS creator wasn’t into that idea.

“Honestly, if it’s an emergency, I think I pee my pants and then have my sister wipe my leg up,” Kardashian says. “I’m not even joking. She can wipe my leg up.”

She’s, of course, referring to her younger sisters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, who also both attended this year’s Met Gala, where the theme was “Camp: Notes on Fashion.”

It’s unclear if Kardashian actually peed her pants or whether either of her sisters had to wipe it up, but using the toilet wasn’t the only challenge she faced.

Aside from needing to take corset breathing lessons to successfully pull off the look, the dress’ intricate water droplet beading was also very painful for her to wear throughout the night.

“I have never felt pain like that in my life,” Kardashian revealed.

“Not only is this silicone [and] 500 hours of beading and making, but every little piece is itchy on the inside. It’s pokey. So it pokes me,” she said. If it wasn’t evident before, it’s clear now that the reality star’s love for fashion truly has no limits.

Simone Biles On Serena Williams, Showing Emotions and Being Unafraid to Own Her Greatness

Simone Biles has learned to embrace her greatness even though she sometimes has trouble wrapping her mind around just how good she’s become. But as the countdown to the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo begins, the superstar athlete, who was recently declared the most decorated female gymnast of all time, said she’s not going to hold back or deny that she’s good at what she does.

“It’s important to teach our female youth that it’s OK to say, ‘Yes, I am good at this,’ and you don’t hold back,” Biles said in an interview with USA TODAY.

The 22-year-old explained, “You only see the men doing it. And they’re praised for it and the women are looked down upon for it. But I feel like it’s good (to do) because once you realize you’re confident and good at it, then you’re even better at what you do.”

“It’s not out of cockiness,” she added. “I’ve won five world titles and if I say, ‘I’m the best gymnast there is,’ (the reaction is) ‘Oh, she’s cocky. Look at her now.’ No, the facts are literally on the paper. I think it’s important to teach (young girls) that.”

Biles went on to say that one of the things her favorite athlete, Serena Williams, taught her growing up is to own her confidence and not be afraid to show real, raw emotion.

“You don’t have to be a robot all the time, and you don’t always have to seem happy out there,” Biles explained. “It also shows kids that it’s OK, if you’re enjoying the moment, to smile, to be happy. If you’re not having a good time, it’s OK, you don’t have to hide that from people.”

Earlier this week, Biles made history by successfully landing the triple-double during her floor routine—a move that is now officially dubbed the Biles II. And on Thursday, October 10, she added another medal to her growing collection: She earned her 16th gold medal at the gymnastics world championships in Stuttgart, Germany, after winning her fifth world all-around title.

After her win, she admitted, “I really don’t know how I do it sometimes.”

“I don’t know; I feel like it’s not me,” Biles continued, per The New York Times. “Sometimes I wonder how I do it. I feel like it’s just, like, not me. I wish I could have like an out-of-body experience to witness it because sometimes I think I’m going crazy.”

Gigi Hadid Wore a Full Designer Look With $73 Boots to Bella Hadid’s Birthday Party

If you follow a supermodel—any supermodel—on Instagram, chances are you know that Bella Hadid‘s 23rd birthday was on October 9. Because, judging from their Stories, it seemed like everyone was celebrating the occasion on social media. That, of course, includes big sister Gigi Hadid.

It wouldn’t be a Hadid celebration though without some incredible party looks. While Bella opted for a vintage Dior dress for her birthday celebration, Gigi was photographed wearing a full plaid Charlotte Knowles look, straight from her spring 2020 runway.

She topped it off with a green blazer and accessorized with a bright yellow bag and nude patent boots. Though most of her outfit was high-end, Gigi’s footwear was surprisingly affordable: Her shoes, from Charles & Keith, retail for under $100.

Who Is Maddison Brown, the Woman Spotted Holding Hands With Liam Hemsworth?

On Thursday night, October 10, Liam Hemsworth threw fans for a loop when he was seen in New York holding hands with Australian actor Maddison Brown, best known for starring on The CW’s Dynasty reboot. The PDA comes shortly after Us Weekly published a report saying Hemsworth was “open to meeting people” following his highly-publicized split from Miley Cyrus over the summer. Cyrus’ love life post-Hemsworth, meanwhile, has been the topic of intense tabloid fodder: She was briefly linked to Brody Jenner’s ex Kaitlynn Carter and is now reportedly dating Cody Simpson.

Maddison Brown is the first person Hemsworth has been spotted out with, though. It’s unclear what the status of their relationship is, but here’s everything you need to know about her:

She’s relatively new to the acting game. The 22-year-old made her Dynasty debut in season two as Kirby Anders, the daughter of the principal family’s chief steward who was framed for arson as a kid. Prior to this she had a role on the Australian TV series The Kettering Incident, but those are her only two substantial acting credits. According to People, Brown is also a model (she’s worked with Calvin Klein and Jason Wu, among other high-fashion brands) and has over 450,000 followers on Instagram.

Cosmopolitan reports that Brown’s comments are already blowing up with thirsty Hemsworth messages. “Your followers about to raise up lol Liam’s new girl,” one reads, while another says, “Are you Liam’s mystery girl😍😍😍😍.”

She’s had a crush on Hemsworth for a while. Well, kinda. Fans unearthed an interview Brown did for the Zach Sang Show where she played a little “F–k, Marry, Kill.” Hilariously, she said she would sleep with both Chris and Liam Hemsworth at the same time. Check it out for yourself, below. Start around the 8:03 mark.

We’ll update this post with more information about Brown as it comes in.

Big Mouth, a Cartoon, Has Taught Me More About Menopause Than Any Other Show

A cartoon has somehow taught me more about the female experience than any other show I’ve watched. I’m talking about Netflix’s adult animated comedy Big Mouth, which centers on three teens, Nick, Jessi, and Andrew, going through puberty. Interestingly, the show is doing some serious heavy lifting for feminism—educating both women and men, in hilarious ways, about the realities of the female body. I admit, as a 41-year-old woman, I felt embarrassed at first about watching a cartoon until I realized that Big Mouth covers topics relevant to women’s lives—including, much to my surprise, menopause.

This specifically happens in the fifth episode of season three, when a hormone monster dressed as a witch approaches Andrew’s mom, Barb, who’s sweating for no reason. “The change is coming,” the witch says to her in a maniacal tone. At first Barb has no idea what the witch is talking about, but soon it hits her: menopause. She’s initially terrified of the concept, but the witch, in her own bizarre way, eases Barb’s concerns. I’ll reveal how she does this in a second, but first I should explain why this episode means so much to me: I’m currently experiencing changes in my own menstrual cycle. And, like Barb, I was originally freaked out.

For months now I’ve been waking up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat. Last winter, my periods went from being exactly seven days a month to, now, only three. But when I went to the doctor (a female one, mind you) and asked why this might be happening, she said, “Well, our bodies are not machines. Nothing is perfect.” OK, sure, but my periods have always been machine-like in predictability. So what was the deal?

The witch and Barb in Big Mouth.

Netflix

It wasn’t until I spoke to my older sister that I found out what was going on. “Night sweats, weird periods: you’re in perimenopause,” she told me. “Nobody warned me about this crap, either.” This was the worst thing she could’ve told me—or so I thought. You see, thanks to TV and movies—and a complete lack of sex education, but that’s a rant for later—I’ve dreaded menopause for as long as I can remember. The general consensus seems to be that menopause turns women into perpetually-angry monsters who are always hot. Think back to the episode of Sex and the City where Samantha receives an unsolicited magazine in the mail about approaching menopause. She viewed this as a death sentence, and relief only comes at the end, when she gets her period.

My ingrained, internalized misogyny has convinced me to fear menopause as the time when women become “dried-up,” “un-fuckable” hags who can’t have babies. But Barb’s story in Big Mouth makes me see it in whole new light, as something I should maybe look forward to.

39 Best Bob Haircuts for 2019 – Celebrity Bob Hairstyles to Try

While certain hair trends come and go, there’s one look that will never go out of style: bob haircuts. While the cropped look might be intimidating, it’s a classic for a reason. A chin-length cut is immediately attention-grabbing and puts all the focus on your face, plus it’s just way less hair to deal with.

According to celebrity hairstylist Alex Brown, blunt, chin-length bobs are especially having a moment right now (think “The Shiv”), but there are plenty of variations to choose from depending on your hair type and comfort level. Whether you go with a choppy textured style or a blunt chop, short hair always manages to look both modern and classic—and forever cool. We rounded up some of our favorite celebrity bob haircuts (and a few lobs, if you’re still not quite ready to go chin-length) to screenshot for your hairstylist. Scroll on for all the inspiration you need.

15 Affordable Cashmere Sweaters You Won’t Want to Take Off

RIP, summer 2019—we will miss you and your slip dresses. But know that we will be wearing cashmere to your funeral.

See, sweater weather isn’t just a time of year, it’s a state of mind (or a coping mechanism, depending on your outlook). There’s no better way to welcome the sudden chill than by layering all of your favorite knits until you forget what it was like to go outside without a coat on.

Of course, the most luxurious layer of all is cashmere. And for a long time, it was synonymous with “expensive.” And while you can definitely find versions to invest in, brands like Reformation, Naadam and Everlane sell great affordable cashmere sweaters that are just as cozy for a fraction of the price. And the feeling of soft, fuzzy cashmere on a chilly fall morning? That’s priceless.

Check out some our favorite affordable cashmere sweaters below, and shop your way to the best sweater weather yet.

Sophia Bush Isn’t Afraid to Speak Truth to Power

This article is part of a series profiling the inspiring women of Together Live, a band of all-female storytellers who will travel across the U.S. this fall, spreading love, laughter, and hope. In 10 cities, big and small, the intimate one-night-only events serve as a reminder that no matter what divides us, women are strongest when we come together. Learn more about Together Live here—and get excited to join the party.


You may remember Sophia Bush as the it-girl of the early aughts. Starring as Brooke on the teen juggernaut, One Tree Hill, and as Beth in the ultimate revenge film, John Tucker Must Die—the media feverishly covered her every move. But what they weren’t writing about was what was happening beneath the surface—the fact that Bush was coming into her own as an activist. Bush first became vocal about humanitarian causes in regard to the environment, but since has spoken out about everything from the harassment she’s experienced on sets, to voting rights. Last year she participated in the viral hashtag #WhyIDidntReport movement—thanking Christine Blasey Ford and sharing her own experience of assault. Before that, she was also a founding member of Time’s Up.

Here, Bush let’s us in on the people who have told her to not speak out, but rather to stay in her lane, and why she refused to listen.

Glamour: You’ve been a loud and proud advocate for the causes close to your heart, whether it’s your work with Time’s Up or I Am a Voter. How did you first decide to trust your voice, and fight for the things you care about?

Sophia Bush: In my experience, the truth itself has an energy, like a drum beat. It makes noise inside of me. And there is nothing to do but speak it. It will never quiet down, nor should it. I’ve always been outspoken about justice, but I do remember when that personal tendency went public after Deepwater Horizon and the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster it caused. As a lifelong lover of this planet of ours, I was incensed at the environmental injustice I was witnessing. And I still am! We have so much work to do. But the work won’t get done if we don’t first have the conversation about the issue at hand. That’s step number one. And we can take our action steps from there.
