GAL APPROVED! Powered By Google. Plus: Mr. Clean, Back-Joy and Pivot’s HR Series Returns!By The DivaGals | August 7, 2015 | Gal Approved
LIVE. Ready for a hot new gadget? How about the Asus Chromebook Flip C100! Powered by Google, it has taken away the annoyance of constant software updates and backing up your files or getting viruses (much like a Macbook!), and added a host of cool new features. You can touch the screen to grab a window and drag it along the desktop with your finger. You can use Google Voice to tell Google verbally what you want to search for. There’s a new software keyboard, complete with auto-correct and a voice recognition button.┬áIf┬áyou are logged in with your Gmail account all your familiar searches and windows magically show up. We love our Google Chrome! This sleek little baby doubles as a tablet. Once you fold back the screen it intuitively goes into tablet mode, making your primary window grow to cover the screen and places the task-switching button at the lower-right-hand corner to allow you to quickly and easily access other windows. The Chromebook Flip is sleek shiny lightweight and portable. It weighs less than my makeup bag and will slip easily into your designer bags. And there’s more: Six solid hours of battery life ΓÇô it will last longer than you in your stilettos! Learn more at, where else? Google.com.
WATCH. When Tom Szaky dropped out of Princeton University to sell marijuana worm poop — a.k.a. organic fertilizer — he had no idea one dollar and a dream would produce a multi-million dollar upcycling company. From cigarette butts and tampons to dirty diapers, Terracycle can recycle everything you thought you wouldnΓÇÖt touch with ten foot pole! Human Resources is the hilarious new reality series taking you behind-the scenes of treasure and trash at Terracycle, and we can’t get enough of DivaGal annointed VP Rhandi Goodman! With crafty new DIY projects and going for the straight shot on zero waste management, Human Resources is every reason youΓÇÖll want to clean up your mess! Catch the premiere of season 2 tonight at 10 p.m. on Pivot TV.
RELIEVE. TV DivaGal spends a lot of time sitting in front of her computer, working on all our Diva-licious posts. And my back was feeling it! So glad I discovered BackJoy. Put this cool-looking apparatus on any flat seat; it will cradle your butt and lift your hips, altering your posture, which can aid with back-pressure relief. And it comes in a variety of colors to fit your every mood! Check out the offerings at BackJoy.com.
CLEAN. Every summer, we have out-of-town guest come to our New York City studio, which means we gots to clean. I mean really clean. Toilets, sinks, walls, baseboards, you name it. And if you ever lived in a NYC apt, you know it can get dirty! Thank goodness we discovered Mr. Clean Magic Eraser from none other than White Boys We Dig Jonathan Scott from HGTV’s hit show Property Brothers. Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, that little chunk of muscle, erased dirt, grime and lines from surfaces that we never thought we’d see clean again. We’re expecting our out-of-towners will only utter one word when they arrive: spotless!
