Redbook 2hrs ago
Grabbing a tube top at Limited Too, sipping on an Orange Julius, smelling body spray at Bath and Bodyworks — if you were a teen in the 90's, so many of your best memories were made at the mall. Once the community epicenter of suburban areas in the later decades of the 20th century, commercial malls have been on the decline for a while now, taking with them some iconic stores of the era. But once upon a time, malls were the place to be, as anyone who was a kid or teen at the time will tell you. Read on for the best trends, stores, and shopping habits that every 90's mallrat will remember — a few of which still live on today.

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.
