What Did We Learn This Month?
Women’s Health Cover Star for December 2013:
Drew Barrymore is on the cover and being her usual, lovely self. (One of my favorite movies of all time is the first Charlie’s Angels—a classic!)
Her wild and crazy behavior of the 90s (which if you look at it now–is NO big deal at all) belied a very smart mind and Drew is now a film producer for her own production plus the creator of the cosmetics line Flower. In this issue she talks about mixing high & low makeup brands to get a shimmering look.
So what else is in the December issue of Women’s Health?
