America Ferrera and her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants costar Amber Tamblyn rang in the new year together!

The actresses created a coronavirus “pod” with their families over the holiday season, tagging their posts together with the hashtag #SisterhoodOfTheTravelingPod.

On New Year’s Eve, Tamblyn, 37, documented their New Year's Eve celebrations in a video on her Instagram page, showing her and Ferrera, 36, dancing and singing along to music in a basement aptly decorated with a colorful disco ball.

“We laughed. We cried. We shared a pod,” she captioned the video. “And got our kids down by 8pm. And ate pizza and brownies. And drank a considerable amount of cocktails. And threw ourselves a prom in the storage unit of our basement so we wouldn't wake up said kids.”

Tamblyn continued, “And sang Zhané at the top of our lungs like wild teenagers. And in the morning begged our husbands to get up with the kids so we could sleep off the hangover. (Okay, maybe only I did that.)”

Ferrera also posted a few snapshots from the duo’s dance party, captioning her Instagram, “1 hour left 2020!!! Then you gots to get the steppin! Happy New Year from our basement dance party 😘.”

The Superstore actress and Tamblyn have remained friends since starring in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants in 2005 alongside Alexis Bledel and Blake Lively. The foursome reunited for the film’s sequel in 2008 and have since teased a potential third movie.

Ferrera has frequently opened up about the special bond that she, Tamblyn, Bledel and Lively have formed from working together.

“My friends, my mentors, they have helped me through every single moment, and they make everything that much better when there’s something to celebrate,” she said during the 2018 MAKERS conference.

“If something is hard, and I need to get through — when I have doubts, when I get tired, when I feel like I just can’t do it today — I look up, and there’s my friend using her voice, there’s my friend breaking boundaries, there’s my friend doing something that terrifies her. It helps me keep going,” she continued.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
