GAL APPROVED: Shoes, Stars & Slip Dresses!By Delaina Dixon | March 7, 2014 | Gal Approved
WATCH. Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey is a reboot of the late Dr. Carl Sagan‘s series that challenged our concepts of time, space and the origins of man. The original made us all gaze into the stars a little deeper, now the Cosmos 2014 docuseries is hosted by one of the Dr.’s prot├⌐g├⌐’s, physicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, and one of its producers is ΓÇô wait for it ΓÇô Seth MacFarlane, the man behind Family Guy and American Dad! The DivaGals were invited to view Cosmos in the coolest of locations, the American Museum of Natural History. Placing us on a CGI spaceship Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey is a fascinating, exhilarating, adrenaline ride through the evolution of existence as we think we know it. It will make you take your brain outside the box and feed you with knowledge in all spectrums of life. A must watch for the science geek in your life, and you know the DivaGals can’t resist a smartie pants! Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey begins Sunday at 9 p.m. on FOX and Monday at 10 p.m. on National Geographic Channel.
WEAR. How do I write a sonnet to a clothing collection? Bobi, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Your fabric is lush cotton, the length of t-shirt and tops are modest and fun, your styles cling to my body and flatter my bust! Bobi is an affordable luxury contemporary t-shirt line that specializes in fashion basics that include dresses, tops and tunics with unique cuts and longer lengths. It’s the go-to casual chic wear that celebrities love. Fans include Selena Gomez, Nicole Richie, singer Wynter Gordon (pictured above) and now, Luxe Gal!
WATCH TOO. We’re recommending The Book Thief, available on DVD Tuesday March 11th. The film stars 13-year-old Canadian actress Sophie N├⌐lisse as Liesel. In the film young Liesel escapes the horrors of World War II Germany by stealing books and sharing them with others. Through Liesel’s eyes we experience the stark reality of war, and the blush of first romance in this wartime coming of age story. Luxe Gal, a fellow Canadian, had a chance to catch up with the young actress over brunch at Le Parker M├⌐ridien New York. Here are a few fun facts about actress Sophie: 1. She is a trained gymnast who would love to do her own stunts. 2. She plays soccer and hockey. 3. A true DivaGal-in-triaining, she is bi-lingual and French is her first language. 4. She is writing a screenplay and someday hopes to direct a film … watch out Scorsese! 5. If she ever tires of the big screen she would happily become a physiotherapist.
WEAR TOO. Entertainment Gal pounds the pavement ΓÇô literally ΓÇô for stories, so I was more than happy to receive the VIONIC with Orthaheel Technology Zen Walker fitness shoe. With custom orthopedics built into this active shoe, these trainers “give you your footprint back.” Most of the time, we are walking on hard, unnatural surfaces and our feet weren’t built for that. Zen Walker’s bionic design realigns your feet by hugging them and helping your foot function the way it was intended. That realigns your body from the ground up and helps you function as a whole, which can mean less back problems and less foot and knee pain. In short, VIONIC with Orthaheel Technology Zen Walker shoes really help you get back on your feet so you can live for wellness. And I’m digging this hot red hue!
