The Best Book For You Based On Your Zodiac Sign
Warner Brothers

Every bibliophile can recall a life-changing experience with a book—one that shook you to your core, changing the way you see the world. Allow the books below to guide you in cultivating the presence of your elements and tell the next mercury retrograde to... Bring. It. On.

Aries (March 21 - April 19) — ​​"Indira"​​ by Katherine Frank

The no-nonsense biography on India's third prime minister appeals to your desire for a lack of frills, and the inherent ups and downs of Gandhi's roller coaster life through her devastating assassination cater to your sensitive side.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20) — "Breath, Eyes, Memory" by Edwidge Danticat

You're the loyal friend everyone goes to with their problems, which is exactly why you take pride and comfort in your close relationships. This Oprah's Book Club favorite is the story of a 12-year-old girl who reunites with her estranged mother. Keep a tissue box (and your mom) close.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20) — "The Luxe" by Anna Godbersen

You're not just the life of every party you're at — you are the party. You get a bad rep for being two-faced, but that's just your playful, intellectually curious side. This book, like you, has it all: sex, scandal, and secrets in 19th-century Manhattan's social elite. Think of it as your vintage "Gossip Girl."

Cancer (June 21 - July 22) — "Sleeping Beauties" by Owen King

Owen King's suspenseful bestseller answer's the question we all ask ourselves every now and then... "What would the world be like without men?" Like the book, you exist in the two realms of the material and spiritual. Because we know you get bored a little easily, the suspense and multiple storylines make this a quick read.

Leo (July 23 - August 22) — "Vox" by Christina Dalcher

You love to be the center of attention, which is why the story about a government decree that women can speak no more than 1,000 words a day, aren't allowed to have a job, and can't read or write, hits even harder for you. As unrealistic as it sounds, the parallels between the fiction and our reality are guaranteed to send a shiver down your spine.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22) — "The Name of The Rose" by Umberto Eco

You're a logical, systematic perfectionist. You'll pick this one up for Eco's smart, elegantly written prose, but flip the pages in one sitting for the gripping murder mystery set in a 14th-century monastery. It explores themes that will challenge your logical side through history, theology, and philosophy.

Libra (September 23 - October 22) — "China Dolls" by Lisa See

You crave equality, and the idealist in you will stand up for any injustice in your presence. "China Dolls" is funny and witty at its surface, but it tells a deeper story of the now-forgotten, once-popular Chinese American night clubs that were all the rage in 1940s San Francisco. Three women from distinct backgrounds meet there to unite over their dark secrets and a dreaded fate.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21) — "The Lucifer Code" by Charles Brokaw

Your passion and power make you one of the most misunderstood of the astrological signs, but it's what we love you for, too. This story about an internationally-renowned archaeologist who sets out on his next expedition only to get kidnapped at the airport turns in to a fight for the entirety of mankind — bound not to challenge your short attention span, it's a quick read.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21) — "Shantaram" by Gregory David Roberts

Always on the quest for adventure, you, Sagittarius love meeting new people and learning their stories. "Shantaram," set in Bombay, is the exploration of the city's underworld of beggars, gangsters, Bollywood actors, prostitutes, and drug lores told by Lin, an escaped convict from Australia. Almost more of a collection of short stories told by the same narrator than one full narrative, it's a Sagittarius' dream way to explore adventure from the comfort of your bed.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19) — "You Are A Badass" by Jen Sincero

You'll do basically anything you set your mind to, Capricorn, no matter how steep the hill. The title says it all, and with nearly 4,000 five-star reviews on Amazon, you really have nothing to lose.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18) — "Pachinko" by Min Jin Lee

The most philanthropic of the signs, you're happiest when you're doing something for others and when you're with your family. "Pachinko" is the story of three generations of families through their devastating lives from Korea to Japan, linked together through undying devotion to one another in the eternal bonds of sisterhood and motherhood.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20) – "The Aryavarta Chronicles Book 1: Govinda" by Krishna Udayasankar

The ultimate daydreamer, you live between the worlds of fantasy and reality, often caught daydreaming about your greatest hopes, fears, and loves. Set in ancient times, imagine this as your fantasies reincarnated through a fight for power and love amongst gods and a cowherd-turned-Prince who uses his craft and shrewdness to protect the innocent people of his kingdom from evil.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

In the midst of all of the amazing statistics and records that these players are breaking, though, we also just love the NBA because well, there are some pretty good looking guys out there. Here are the 19 hottest NBA players (in no particular order) you would totally let slam dunk on you now that the NBA has returned.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).
