GAL APPROVED Weekend Edition: Luxury Apartments; iPad Love & Books Galore!By DIVAGALS | June 8, 2012 | Entertainment
DREAM. Finding an amazing apartment in NYC is never easy … But the DivaGals know where to look! That’s why we loved our evening at 57 Irving Place, where we lived the high life (for about an hour) in the luxury apartment with airy bedrooms, closet built-ins and a kitchen that would house about 40! The apartment is rented – only $35,000 a month, and yes, there was a waiting list! – but we knew you’d still want to live vicariously! We loved that our new dream home came complete with live models roaming around our living room in summer pieces by Chloe. Better than a 3-way mirror!
PLAY. We’re all in awe over Luxe Gal’s newest toy, the iPad 3. She says, “Apple’s third generation iPad looks like last year’s iPad 2. But it’s got a better screen, processor, optics and network. I have been using the photo and video functions. I am clumsily juggling my new toy and my smart phone. I know I should think about getting the iPhone, but my smartphone has been such a wonderful companion, and I’m not quite ready to move on. Here’s to hoping that the smarties at Blackberry will create a model that will combine the hot features of the iPhone and the familiarity of the smart phone. And a QWERTY board that’s easy to type on.” iPad, $499 @ www.apple.com.
READ. So many books at the Book Expo America 2012! We scored a whole bag full with some of our new favorite titles, like “The Darkest Minds,” about a 10-year-old with special powers – which makes her life one that others want to see come to an end; to “Sh*tty Mom,” a little pamphlet for the real crap that goes down with motherhood, jointly written by four real moms (because none had time to write it on her own!).
