The Most Amazing Photos of a Young Dolly Parton
House Beautiful 2hrs ago
Dolly Parton has been an icon in the country music community since she first started releasing music in the 60s. Her songs like the haunting “Jolene” and the upbeat work anthem “9 to 5” have been covered again and again due to their popularity, but no one can belt them out quite like Dolly. Dolly’s talent spans so much farther than music, too. The 73-year-old is a force to be reckoned with in film and TV, and is even releasing her own Netflix series, Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings, in November 2019. Dolly also has a Hallmark Christmas movie that revolves around her Dollywood theme park, as well as a homeware line, a podcast that chronicles her rise to fame, and so much more. If that’s not legendary, we don’t know what is. Next on Dolly’s list of to-dos is to host the CMA Awards alongside Reba McEntire and Carrie Underwood. In honor of this year’s beloved leader, we’re taking a look back at her life in photos—including the times before she became a big star, wed husband Carl Dean, and started sporting her signature big southern hairstyle. Yee-haw!

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.
