MenoLabs News | Tue, Jul 18, 2023


We watched And Just Like That

Did you watch the premiere episode of And Just Like That with us? It was fun to watch it live with everyone! If you’re interested in watching more shows in the future, let us know which shows catch your fancy so we can set it up—tell us in the Facebook group! 

Here’s what one member had to share: 

I’m Denise and I joined this group because I love Sex and the City. My best friend and I used to watch every single episode together and now we live 3,000 miles apart so this group is perfect. Now I don’t have to feel like I’m watching it alone. 

Speaking of And Just Like That, legendary Sex and the City costume designer Patricia Field has an upcoming documentary aptly called, Happy Clothes that chronicles her career in the film industry. In our app, MenoLife we talked about the joy of dressing up, especially during times when we’re experiencing hot flashes and weight changes. It’s all about reflecting the mood you want to experience. I LOVE the brand Farm Rio to do just that! The colors are vibrant, and the prints are fun! Anytime I wear them, people smile and tell me I’ve made their day because of what I was wearing:) Share how you’re #dressinginhappiness in our Facebook group. 

We’ve all heard that Kim Cattrall will make a cameo on And Just Like That this season. But she also has a series on Netflix called Glamorous where she plays a makeup mogul. Check out all of our beauty tips on our app, MenoLife!
