Must List

Check out the new issue of Girls' Life starring Daya!

Our amazing February/March issue starts hitting mailboxes on January 6 and newsstands on January 17! Here's a peek at what you'll find inside...

EXCLUSIVE! One thing you need to know about Daya: She loves a good adventure. On the set of our cover shoot, the 18-year-old spilled details of her exciting excursions with her sibs (her fam takes *crazy* vacays) and all the amazing places her career has taken her so far. And since her debut album, Sit Still, Look Pretty, was released in October, she's gone pretty much everywhere. The *last* thing you'll find her doing is sitting still—especially since she's about to head out on her first-ever headlining tour. Looking pretty, though? Always. Especially in the dreamy look she's rocking on the cover of our Feb/March issue—and guess what? It can all be yours! Yep, win Daya's pretty tee from Lisa Todd, silky bomber jacket and cute chokers from Lulus, necklace from Claire's and bold ring from Taylor Kenney Jewelry. Just grab your Feb/March copy of Girls' Life magazine, follow @girlslifemag on social media and post and tag #GLgirl. Oh, and did we mention that we're giving away VIP tickets to her tour?

Girls rock—literally *and* figuratively
One pop-rock band, a record-setting snowboarder, an Olympic gold medal gymnast and a fashion designer: What do all these people have in common? They're all girls, they're all incredibly inspiring and they're all going to dominate your life this spring. Well, them—and the one dreamy boy we happen to be in puppy love with...

At ease
Bye bye, bulky winter layers. This spring, shed your chunky knits and puffers in favor of this femme take on army fatigues. A look that's laid-back and pretty, all at once.

Sweet styles
Fact: Denim is always on trend. Also fact: Bailee Madison is incredibly stylish. We show you how to rock the blues all season long, while B schools in sorbet shades that are yummy enough to eat.

Slay all day
No one works a red carpet better than K.C. Undercover star and general fashion princess, Zendaya. But now, she's stepped into a brand new pair of fashionable shoes: designer. Her first-ever clothing collection on her label, Daya by Zendaya, is available now, and she's spilling on every piece, her fashion inspo and her brand-new album.

Pretty in print
Play it safe? Never. Double down with paired-up prints and patterns—coming your way in graphic stripes and fierce florals for a look that’s loud but lady-like. Our spectacularly stunning fashion editorial shares the secret to pulling off these cool combos (read: precise and playful—not, um, cray).

Barely there
Enter: the new piece-of-cake beauty trend that's the *furthest* thing from caked foundation and crazy contouring. It's pretty *and* easy, and will have you out the door in no time at all.

Spritz, spritz
This is perfume 101, and you're about to get schooled. Learn what scents work with your bod's chemistry, how to blend fragrances and what the heck hair perfume even is.

Mane mania
It doesn't take a big change to get a major mane makeover. Find the perf products for your tresses, whether it's curly, stick straight, natural, colored, get the picture! There's no better time than now to change up your look. 

"I *didn't* wake up like this"
News flash: Digging makeup is totally OK—but you already knew that. Here's how one girl's love affair with cosmetics sparked major confidence, independence and creativity.

He said what?!
We've all been there: huddled around our phones with our besties, wondering *what* his text could possibly mean. Huddle no more, and let our handy-dandy guide do all the work for you.

I ❤️ it
There's nothing wrong with loving love—but are you a li'l addicted to it? We've got just the quiz you need to find out, babe.

Trust your gut
Dating pressures are scary, no doubt about it. But there are ways to make sure your voice is heard loud and clear because, as the saying goes, no means no.

Zap to it
Can't stay awake in chem? Bored in english? We get it, girl, but there's probably more to your tendency to zzz than just what your teach is droning on about. Here's how to charge your batteries and embrace the day *without* that nasty energy drink.

Band together
Break up with your boring fitness routine—stat. The workout band is your new gym bestie, and we're giving you the dish on why and how to use it.

Sweet snow day
There's nothing better than the joy that comes from reading that "Schools are closed!" message the morning after a big snow—well, until you read our plans for your perfect snow day, that is.
