Shai Anything: My InStyle Magazine Interview with Shailene Woodley

Wednesday, February 17th, 2016

The March 2016 issue of InStyle magazine has a lot of cool things going for it: It’s a big, fat, juicy issue full of new spring fashion; the magazine has a brand new re-design; and it features a cover story I wrote.

I sat down with actress Shailene Woodley—star of the upcoming film The Divergent Series: Allegiant Part 1—to talk about her upcoming film, her new projects (she’s currently filming the HBO series Big Little Lies with Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman for which I’ll promptly be hitting that binge-me-now button) and all things life, love and happiness.

Over dinner at Akasha in Culver City, we talked a lot about travel, fashion, confidence, and learning to appreciate the small moments to reach the ultimate goal: contentment. You can get a taste for the story in this excerpt from my Shailene Woodley interview on InStyle.com where she explains that “happiness is not something I need to achieve.”

Here, she also talks about her recent travels through India and gives a short video interview on the InStyle.com site.

You can pick the issue on stands now or grab the full digital edition of the March 2016 issue. Here’s a taste of what we talked about so you can see why it’s worth it.

NOW Magazine & The Happy Life Checklist

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

This week’s issue of NOW Magazine in the UK (it’s like the People magazine of Great Britain) was kind enough to ask my advice for a fun feature on how to do newly single style right.

The story features beautiful British  TV star Sam Faier (of TOWIE and, recently, Celebrity Big Brother) who’d recently broken up with her TOWIE co-star Joey Essex. And she seemed to be doing the breakup makeover — a.k.a. the “break over” — just right. (So right, in fact, there are rumors the two of them may be dating again!) And though she’s now talking about how she is fighting back against her Crohn’s disease, she is certainly doing it with a healthy, happy glow and a confident style.

Here’s what I had to say about it, based on the positive ideas in my new book The Happy Life Checklist: 654 Simple Ways to Find Your Bliss:

When it comes to your break over look, just remember  it’s all about you: the authentic, confident, dress-for-your-own-comfort you.
