GAL APPROVED! See Joker. Sip Spain Wines. Soothe With Beauty Kitchen.By The DivaGals | October 4, 2019 | Gal Approved
SEE. Yes, we already know that Joaquin Phoenix will probably win another Oscar for his dark portrayal of the Joker’s origin story in the film of the same name. But we’re most excited to see what Zazie Beetz brings to the role as Sophie Dumond, a single mom who can see more into the man who becomes a criminal mastermind than meets the eye. Zazie says that her character empathizes with “the isolation” a person can feel, which is what draws them together, deep. We give this girl props: From Ryan Reynolds and Donald Glover to Joaquin, Zazie’s leading man game is on point. Joker, currently playing in theaters.
SIP. Wines of Spain. You must add Rías Baixas to your list of destinations to visit. It is known for the Albariño grape, which is an indigenous variety that produces some of the world’s most luscious white wines. This region is located in an area called Galicia and is located in northwestern Spain. This region has strong historic ties to the British Isles and Ireland (think Bagpipe music!) If you travel choose the fall for the best temperatures. What makes their wines so great? Their indigenous grapes have a “roundness in texture, high acidity and, floral notes.” Which makes them a perfect companion for the abundant seafood fished locally. Now here’s something to cheer about: 50 percent of the winemakers are women! The five regions in this area are Ribeira do ulla, Val do Salnes, Soutomaior, Condado do tea and O Rosal. If you can’t travel to the region visit Mercado’s Little Spain at Hudson Yards and immerse yourself in their lovely selection of foods and wines. Visit us on Facebook to see our pics.
SOOTHE. Here’s to having beautiful eyes… and recognizing all orientations. Beauty Kitchen’s Rainbow Pride Collagen Eye Gels ($24) is a set of six collagen eye gels in hues of pink, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple, and this set stands for equality, acceptance and pride to celebrate LGBTQ History Month. The plant-based line is filled with simple ingredients free of chemicals, sulfates and harsh parabens.
It also would be a great stocking stuffer – our eyes felt so refreshed after slipping into a pair – if you can stand to part with one! Get yours at beautykitchen.net.
