GAL APPROVED: Spooky Nails, Colorful Yogurt, Beads with a Message & ’80s Carrie Bradshaw!By DIVAGALS | October 26, 2012 | Entertainment, Gal Approved
WATCH. The DivaGals attended the NY premiere of The Carrie Diaries at the New York TV Festival this week. (Check us out with series star Freema Agyeman!). Here are our thoughts! At first we were hesitant: Carrie Bradshaw as a teenager, really? Would it have the legs to stand on? It sure does! It’s 1984 and we get to see the Sex and the City sweetheart coming of age and beginning her love affair with NYC, along with the friends and influences that shaped the woman we know and love. The teenage Carrie is just as endearing and sensitive. A nostalgic romp through the eighties, its wild fashions and romanticized Big Apple, pre-Internet and cell phones, had us totally engaged. And we can certainly attest that our 16-year-old selves would have been enamored with Carrie’s teen love Sebastian, played by 21-year-old cutie (and Vanessa Hudgen’s BF!) Austin Butler. You can be sure The Carrie Diaries will be added to our weekly must watch list. Look for the show to premiere next January on The CW.
TASTE. Can you eat pink? How about green? Yummy Emmi Swiss Yogurt is created in small batches under the supervision of specialists in accordance with Swiss tradition. The creamy growth hormone-free milk is blended with numerous berry flavored fruits, like pink grapefruit and green apple, to create its smooth texture and rich flavor. Yum!
GIVE. Are you looking for cause-related jewelry? Here is our discovery. Confidence BeadsΓäó are a way to spread an uplifting message of strength and support among women. Each colorful and unique bead stands for a word that’s empowering, like fearless and fabulous. For every bead purchased, Confidence Beads makes donations to Ovations for the cure of ovarian cancer, and to domestic violence awareness programs in partnership with New Hope. That’s jewelry that truly makes a statement worthwhile.
STICK. Halloween is next Wednesday, and we knew our friends at KISS Nail Dress and imPRESS would be stirring up some frighteningly fashionable choices for the night’s festivities. We’re screaming for their themed Limited Edition, which include silver spiders, cobwebs, skulls and bats that glow in the dark and witchy stickers. There’s also Kiss Lash Dress for funky lashes. We’re certain to make a spooky statement that’s totally in style! Available at Walgreens and Kmart nationwide.
