The Princess Switch: Switched Again Is Here, and People Are Already Obsessed

The Princess Switch: Switched Again—a.k.a. the sequel to the 2018 Vanessa Hudgens Netflix movie—is now streaming on the platform, and people are already loving it.

In the first movie, Hudgens plays dual roles: Stacy DeNovo, a baker from Chicago, and Lady Margaret Delacourt, a duchess who’s also engaged to Crown Prince Edward of Belgravia. The two meet when Stacy goes to Belgravia for a baking competition (stick with us here!), and they decide to switch places for a couple days, Parent Trap-style. Prince Edward was supposed to be away during the switch, but of course he’s not…and sparks fly between him and Stacy, even as she’s pretending to be Margaret. They fall in love and get married, as one does. 

The sequel finds Stacy and Margaret together again, this time for Margaret’s coronation. Obviously, they need to switch places again so Margaret can sort out her feelings for Stacy’s friend, Kevin. But this time around, there’s a third Vanessa Hudgens in the mix—a blond troublemaker named Lady Fiona, who’s also Lady Margaret’s cousin.

Hudgens teased the idea of a third lookalike when she spoke to Glamour a while back. “Maybe there would a third twin,” she said. “Spruce things up a little bit. I have no idea. I’m going to leave that one up to the writers, but I know that I had so much fun doing it. The characters are so sweet that I would definitely be on board.”

Eager fans have already started watching (and tweeting about) The Princess Switch: Switched Again. They even spotted an appearance by Queen Amber and King Richard of Aldovia (along with their baby), who you’ll remember from the A Christmas Prince movies on Netflix. We stan a fiction royal crossover moment! 

“vanessa hudgens switching lives with vanessa hudgens and then vanessa hudgens ruins their lives wow can’t get any better than that,” one person tweeted. “I finally finished The Princess Switch: Switched Again and it was everything I could have hoped for. Literally loved it almost as much as the first movie. Vanessa Hudgens is my new Christmas queen,” another wrote.

The best news is that Netflix is making a third movie for the 2021 holiday season, but Hudgens says she won’t be playing a fourth character in that one. “No, no, that’s just too outrageous. We’re already at max outrageous here with three characters, we’re just going to keep it at that,” she told The Wrap. “And I would 100% lose my mind if I tried to add another me, even though it would probably be Scottish [and] I love that accent and it would be a great excuse to master the Scottish accent. But no, that’s not happening.”

How Long Should You Wait to Workout After Eating?

Pretty much every fitness lover has wondered at some point: How long should you wait to workout after eating?

It’s a worthwhile question. Exercise too soon, and you risk feeling gassy, crampy, and nauseous. Wait too long, and you won’t have the energy you need to reach your workout goals. So how can you strike the right balance?

We sought advice from the experts: gastroenterologist Laura Harrell Raffals, MD, MS, professor of medicine at the Mayo Clinic, and Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics spokesperson Yasi Ansari, MS, RDN, CCSD. Here’s what you need to know about eating and exercise.

How Long to Wait to Workout After Eating

As a general rule of thumb, you should wait to exercise until three to four hours after eating a meal, and one to two hours after eating a snack, advises Ansari. Doing some light exercise after eating—like walking—is fine, but for a more intense workout your body needs time to digest. 

By giving your body the time it needs to digest food before exercising, you’ll allow your body to actually use the fuel from that meal to power your workout, explains Raffals. You’ll also give your stomach time to empty its contents and lower your chances of experiencing mid-workout nausea, reflux, heartburn, and other unpleasant GI issues.

That said, we all tolerate and digest food differently, so there’s no one-size-fits-all guidance for how long you should wait to work out after eating. Factors like the length and intensity of your workout, as well as the type and amount of food you eat, play a role, too.

Be extra careful about the timing and type of food before a high-intensity workout, Ansari adds. Before a run or a HIIT class, for example, your stomach might need simpler foods and more time to digest them compared to what it can tolerate before more gentle activities, like a walk or gentle yoga. (Again, this varies person to person—more on that in a minute.)

What to Eat Before a Workout

Everyone’s body is a little different, but in general, complex carbs and lean proteins make great pre-workout fuel. That’s because complex carbs slowly release glucose to provide steady energy throughout your workout, and lean proteins provide sustaining energy as well, explains Raffals. Just keep in mind it takes more time to digest protein than it does carbs, so keep your pre-workout protein consumption moderate. Good pre-workout snack options to try include oatmeal with berries, hard boiled eggs, a turkey wrap, or peanut butter and jelly on whole grain bread, says Raffals.

The closer you eat to a workout, the higher your food should be in simple carbohydrates, says Ansari. Bananas, crackers, applesauce, smoothies, raisins, dates, juice, and simple bars are good pre-workout snack options to try.

On the no-no list? Large amounts of spicy foods, high-fiber foods, and high-fat foods, says Ansari. It takes a while to digest high-fiber and high-fat foods, so eating them in big quantities too close to a workout (i.e. within several hours) can lead to stomach woes and spicy food can cause gas. It’s also important to avoid processed foods and foods that contain lots of highly-refined sugars, says Raffals. Things like sodas and highly processed, sugary granola bars can give you a quick jolt of energy, but then leave you seriously dragging.

Depending on the length and intensity of your workout, you may also want to eat during it. Again, this varies person to person, but in general Ansari recommends bringing along a snack for workouts that last more than 45 minutes. “I have a lot of people who run and they’ll tell me ‘Once I hit that one hour mark, I feel like I’m tanking,’” she explains. In those instances, eating or sipping something simple, like a piece of fruit or an electrolyte drink that contains carbs, can provide the energy boost you need to finish feeling strong. If it’s not possible to snack while you exercise—maybe you’re in a group fitness class, for instance, or you don’t like to carry anything on you while you run—just make sure you fuel up shortly beforehand. “It’s going to enhance your performance,” explains Ansari.

This Is What’s Really Worth Buying From The Inkey List

Great skin care doesn’t have to be expensive. And if you’ve read any of The Inkey List reviews, you know this to be true. The British brand has been providing reliable skin care essentials under $15 since 2018, but thanks in part to TikTok, the buzz for the best The Inkey List products is just getting started.

The line is often compared to The Ordinary for its affordable cost and formulas focused on single ingredients. And while both brands have truly impressive quality, where they differ is the packaging. The Ordinary takes a clinical approach with names that refer to specific ingredients, while The Inkey List breaks down the phonetic spelling of ingredients, along with a clear description of the result it gives.

This is no coincidence, as the brand’s founders Colette Laxton and Mark Curry set out to simplify the world of skin care. To do so, the brand offers a quick quiz on its website called the “recipe builder,” which will craft you a customized routine, or you can use the brand’s Ask Inkey feature to have any imaginable question answered at all times. 

Still, the line, which features 36 skin care products in nearly identical packaging, can be a bit confusing. While you could theoretically test your way through the entire line for the cost of one luxury serum, that’s what we’re here for. We had Glamour editors—from skin care obsessives to true minimalists—put the whole line to the test. Read on for our honest The Inkey List reviews and our breakdown of the products truly worth adding to your routine.

The Crown’s Emma Corrin on the Princess Diana Moment That Wasn’t in the Script

It’s a phenomenal thing, and honestly, for research purposes, you don’t need much more, because it is her, talking about her life, overlaid with footage. It’s everything.”

On how she learned to speak like Diana

“She has a downwards inflection on the end of her sentences or words. I got the voice mainly through watching Diana: In Her Own Words on repeat. My mum’s a speech therapist, and that helped initially. I also worked with an amazing dialect coach, William Conacher. He’s just brilliant and really helped me refine it.”

On what she’d ask Diana if she were still alive

“In retrospect, I’d love to find out what she felt about leaving her friends and her life before. Did she miss it? How did she feel about leaving her old life for her new one? And as an adult, how would she view her younger self? 

I’m really interested in young Diana, because no one knows that much about her. I loved playing young Diana so much. I am so fond of her, it’s almost insane. That’s why I found episode two and three really intriguing. I live with my best friends, so I imagine how unstable I would feel if I was swept up into this whole new world, never really seeing them again. And then the little things, like you wouldn’t have your favorite jumper to put on anymore…all familiarity is gone. So I’m interested in her transition from living in a flat to moving to the palace. In the documentary, one of her drivers says to her, ‘Are you ready for the last day of your life as you know it?’ I wonder how she felt about that in the end.”

On the possibility of meeting Princes William or Harry

“I have thought about it. I would like to, though I’m not sure about Charles. I think I’d be quite scared to meet Charles, but I think William and Harry seem really nice. But, who knows? I’d probably be quite nervous.”

On the Diana and Meghan Markle parallels

“Regardless of the fact that I’m playing a royal, as a human I feel very empathetic towards [Meghan and Harry], as I do with anyone who is so in the spotlight. I’ve started to experience being followed around where I live and it’s never nice. 

With acting, you realize that it’s part of what you sign up for, but with the royals, you’re sort of born into it. And then that intrusion becomes part of your life. With Diana, all she did was love someone and then she was followed around all of the time. It’s just quite an unfair invasion of privacy.”

On the moment that wasn’t in the script

“The clubbing scene with Diana’s friends was just the most fun thing in the world. Those girls are just fantastic, and it was such a joy to work with them. We went in Annabel’s in Mayfair and we just got to dance to Stevie Nicks for an afternoon in ridiculous ballgowns. 

I’ve never actually mentioned this before, but I remember at the end of that scene when we’re walking out, we start singing the national anthem, drunkenly. I did that on a whim because [director] Ben Caron was like, ‘Act drunk.’ I’m actually terrified of acting drunk because I think it can go so wrong so easily. I just thought, ‘Maybe I should sing the national anthem.’ He really loved it, so we kept that in.”

On that scene where Diana dances inside the palace

“I loved getting to dance when Diana loses her mind inside the palace. It was so much fun, and I’m actually dancing to Cher’s ‘Believe’ because I asked for them to play that for me while I danced. So, if you put Cher on, the dance would probably make more sense.”

On Camilla and Diana’s cringe-worthy lunch scene

“I loved that. It turned out really well when I watched it. It was so fun to do because Emerald Fennell is fantastic and absolutely terrifying as Camilla in such a great way. I call it sugar-coated iciness. 

This $18 Mask Is the Secret to Kacey Musgraves’s Super Shiny Hair

Kacey Musgraves is preparing for the holidays, even if they’re a little different this year. “I love vintage Christmas decor,” the Grammy-winning artist tells Glamour. “I’m always a sucker for pastel pink and red together in any capacity.” 

It should come as no surprise then that the color scheme for the holiday edition of Musgraves’s popular candle Slow Burn—which first debuted in February in collaboration with Boy Smells—is a mix of those same colors. Not only is it the perfect gift for any Musgraves fan, but the holiday version comes in a much larger size with three wicks.

“Scent is such a strong emotional sense, so I usually always have a candle or fresh flowers around,” Musgraves says of her songwriting rituals. “Those extra-sensory triggers can help immerse your entire self into a state of mind or inspiration.”

Finding inspiration is something the 32-year-old has learned to embrace in a very difficult year. “I’m just doing the best I can, like so many people right now,” she says. “I’m trying my best to not be so hard on myself. We are all having to practice a new schedule. It’s not easy learning how to be still when you’re molecularly used to being stimulated and on the move constantly.” 

Regardless, she says she’s tried to savor daily pleasures she wouldn’t normally get while on the road. “Self care, nesting in my new house, walking my dog, growing and tending a garden, strengthening the friendships I had to leave behind while touring, doing laundry, etc. There is a lot of beauty in being forced into completely unzipping and slowing down.”

Speaking of slowing down, Kacey Musgraves was game when we asked her to share the things that bring her joy as she spends more time at home—from sweatpants and robes to CBD pens and facial ice globes. Time for another edition of Your Fave’s Faves.

What I wear when I write music

I’ve been loving ROAM faux fur slides on cozy, fall days when it’s not too cold out yet. I also live in coordinated sweatsuits. My current faves are the tie-die Rodarte set, along with the butter sweats by Tribe, and anything from MadHappy.

My self-care routine

A Xanax and a massage! But also, a big part of my self-care mindset is just giving myself a break from the pressure I put on myself. As far as products, I do love the CBD pens and pre-rolls from The Edie Parker line, Weedie Parker. I also try to stay hydrated, eat clean, get enough sleep, and stay on top of going to therapy. And laugh. I love, love, love laughing. 

My favorite lip balm in the winter

I’m constantly on a search for something to cure my dry lip phobia, so I’m currently loving Supa Balm by KNC Beauty. There’s also a drugstore chapstick called Dr. Dan’s CortiBalm that has hydrocortisone cream in it and helps so much.

My dreams and goals for the new year

I’m looking forward to—and hoping for—what many of us are: normalcy, a cure, starting the year with new leadership. A new slate in many senses. I just want things to feel calmer, less hateful and divisive. I know all touring musicians are hoping for the day we can all get back on the road and connect with our fans, but we just don’t know when that will be. So, in the meantime, I’m gonna stay patient and grateful that I feel that I’m right where I need to be.

The 30 Best Hanukkah Gifts to Give (or Get) This Year

Unlike Christmas, Hanukkah begins on a different date each year and lasts eight nights in December. People who don’t celebrate the holiday often wonder if you’re supposed to gift all eight nights or save for one big Hanukkah gift—and then there’s the question of gifting Hanukkah-centric presents (like menorahs, dreidels, all things blue and white, etc.). But don’t fret—just like Christmas, there are no rules for Hanukkah gifts. It’s the thought that counts, especially during a holiday season where being “together” may mean getting festive over Zoom. 

At its core, Hanukkah is about celebrating miracles—both big and small—and enjoying time with loved ones. So in the spirit of finding the light in a very heavy year, we’ve gathered some of the most joyful Hanukkah gifts of 2020. Pro tip: If you want to be a good mensch, the Festival of Lights kicks off on December 10, so grab your presents soon.

The Woman Who Allegedly Had an Affair With Hillsong Pastor Carl Lentz Is Speaking Out

Hillsong Church pastor Carl Lentz’s scandal appears to be far from over. 

In case you’re not totally up to speed, the mega-church leader—who once served as a close spiritual advisor to Justin Bieber—was fired from his position because of “leadership issues and breaches of trust, plus a recent revelation of moral failures.” The news was announced in a statement from Hillsong’s founder Brian Houston. 

In a subsequent Instagram post, Lentz admitted to cheating on his wife, Laura, who was also reportedly let go from her position at the church. “I was unfaithful in my marriage, the most important relationship in my life and held accountable for that,” he wrote. “This failure is on me, and me alone and I take full responsibility for my actions.” 

Now, Ranin Karim, a woman who alleges she had an affair with Lentz, is speaking out in a new interview with Vanity Fair. (Lentz has not spoken publicly about who he was unfaithful with and did not respond to the magazine’s request for comments on the story.)

Karim, who lives in New York City and is a jewelry designer, says she was not aware that Lentz would be posting about the cheating on Instagram. “I was hurt, yeah,” she said. “I wanted to speak my part.” She claims the two had a five-month affair (during the pandemic) and that he told her he “managed celebrities.” When she asked him for more information, she says he told her, “You don’t have to Google me.” However, she found out his last name by doing a reverse phone number search. 

“I know what I got myself into, but at the same time I wanted to do the right thing and walk, walk away,” Karim said. “I am not a monster.” She admits in the interview that she was in love with Carl Lentz but regrets the affair. “I really wish I never met him,” she said. “I told him that many times because it was just, just like, what’s the point?”

Karim says the two did eventually talk about Lentz’s role at Hillsong Church. “He was very conflicted with his own work,” she told Vanity Fair. She also said she spoke to the former pastor after he was fired and that he “feels free.” 

“I think it’s [Hillsong] a joke, I’m sorry,” Karim said. “It’s not genuine. That’s the truth. It’s a money machine… and I think it’s wrong. I think he is a victim of his own church. He gave his life to this church, and that’s how they played him.”
