GAL APPROVED: Bad Babies; Clean Kitties; Me Time & Make Your Own Sunglasses!By Delaina Dixon | May 9, 2014 | Gal Approved
WEAR. Last week we attended the opening of the Oakley store on Fifth Avenue in New York City. The company offers active life wear for men and women. Its newest collection of menswear is perfect for the athletic man in your life. The colors are rich and the styles are upscale sporty. We had a blast at OakleyΓÇÖs signature sunglasses bar which allows you to customize your sunglasses by selecting your frames and lens. You can create a pair that are ideal for your active outside life. The latest edition to the sunglass bar is prescription lens.
At the opening party, we ran into actress Taryn Manning, star of Netflix hit Orange Is the New Black who was doing double duty as DJ. Other stars in attendance included Puerto Rican model Heidy De la Rosa and South African model Natasha. The Oakley store is located on Fifth Avenue and 46th St., right in the center of Times Square. Items are also available online.
TREAT. Taking care of yourself means indulging in Monthly Express. This monthly membership-based beauty club brings luxurious beauty products right to your door every month. Expect deliveries of full-sized lotions, skin creams, and other luxurious goodies from Italy, France, and Switzerland. Packages may also include home accessories and fragrant candles. Such a reasonable splurge at just $129 per month. Perfect gift for Mom!
CLEAN. Luxe Gal has a new addition in her life: a cat! My newest discovery is the Litter-Robot. This handy device makes cat ownership a much more pleasant experience, especially if you are squeamish about cleaning litter boxes. The Litter Robot is a self-cleaning litter box for cats that uses a rotating globe to sift the clumps from the clean cat litter. The Litter Robot globe lets the clumps sift themselves from the litter bed and drop into a sealed drawer at the base. My husband and I love it, and our divalicious kitty Leo is getting used to it too! Price $499- $800.00
WATCH. We canΓÇÖt wait to curl up with a big bowl of popcorn and a crucifix to watch NBCΓÇÖs mini-series remake of RosemaryΓÇÖs Baby. Movie starlet Zoe Saldana has taken on the title role of an expectant mother who learns she may be carrying the spawn of Satan. While we know Zoe didnΓÇÖt revisit the original to make the title character her own, we love that she opted for Mia FarrowΓÇÖs famous pixie ΓÇÿdo! Also starring Patrick J. Adams from USA Network’s Suits. RosemaryΓÇÖs Baby begins Sunday, May 11 at 9 p.m. on NBC.
