My obsession over Marie Kondo's method of de-cluttering has led down the rabbit hole of the "less is more" movement, which eventually led me to this film (available on Netflix).
I highly recommend this documentary even to those who don't practice minimalism. It really makes you think about the whole capitalistic notion of buying all the time and more importantly, "compulsive buying". Do things really bring us joy?

Even though this has Gwyneth in the cover, she actually only wrote the foreword. What the book is is a great guide to clean beauty, written by the editors of GOOP, many of whom are experts in the field (ie.Dr. Laura Lefkowitz, Karen Behnke). It not only deals with skin care and makeup products, but also how we take care of our bodies (what we eat, how much we sleep, etc.)
It has recipes for a detox diet, different stretches, discussion of toxic ingredients in beauty products, makeup and hair tips....just a fountain of information. Can't recommend this enough!
3) That Winter, The Wind Blows
I tend to watch light Korean romantic comedies, but Rowena recommended I see this. Ehr....mah....gerd! Such a great series, you guys! Thank you as always, sunbae:)
In terms of cinematography and acting, this ranks right up there for me with Misaeng! I cried like a baby in several scenes, and was on pins and needles at the end of every episode. So many memorable lines to boot. I seriously wish they made this into a 20-episode drama instead of 16.
Jo In Sung and Song Hye Kyo are seriously just beautiful people.
