What Did We Learn This Month?
SELF: November 2012
SELF Cover Star for November:
Apparently Dobrev stars in the CW show The Vampire Diaries which I have never seen so I have really have nothing to judge about her except from what I read in the interview. The Toronto native appears to be a nice enough gal who keeps in shape with yoga (she lets SELF know her favorite poses to get the lean body she has) and has a desire to open her own studio someday. That and she never checks her bag when she flies (me neither.)
You can read all about Nina Dobrev at Self.com here.
So What Else is in the November SELF?
“Take a fit-cation”
Is it bad that it’s not even Halloween yet (as I am typing this) and my mind is already thinking about taking a winter break? Okay—SELF may have had something to do with that because they go and feature a whole bunch of awesome-sounding vacations here.
"Would You Own a Gun?”
I have never fired a real gun and am terrified at the thought of it. But, I am a single woman living in NYC so I can’t say I have never thought about my safety and whether or not I should take lessons. Here we get a detailed report on the pros and cons of owning firearms.
“Sculpt Smarter, Look Hotter”
Are you looking for a quick sculpting plan you can do at home? Try some of these moves from some of the best trainers in the business.
“Your T-Day Dinner--Slimmer”
I don’t know about all of you but I have a hard time restraining myself over Thanksgiving. I love just about every single damn thing that is served that day! Here SELF offers suggestions on how to cut back on some of the gluttony.
“Have Wall: Get Fit”
SELF fitness editor Marissa Stephenson (who sports a fierce six-pack!) is the model for our exercises from NYC training expert Rustin Steward.
I like easy meals that are also delicious and these seem to fit the bill just fine!
The Rest of the Best of the November SELF:
- "Vote! Your Health Depends on It!” Please tell me that you are registered to vote and know where to do it? I hope so!
- "Pot Legal? It Could Happen" A certain family member of mine (who is three years younger than me and lives in Canada) would giggle reading this article. And that is all I have to say about it. (Let’s see if he really reads my Blog!)
- "2012 SELF Fragrance Awards” I tend to be a cheapskate when it comes to perfume (though over the years I find them tough to take.) But if I were to splurge—SELF has some good ideas on what to get at the beauty counter. (Or better yet—what to put on my holiday gift list!)
- “Permission to be Lazy Granted” Thank you SELF!!
B+ The November issue is a fine, cozy read.
