GAL APPROVED Stylishly Comfortable Shoes, Morning Brew, Gucci Ghosts and A Word of Inspiration!By The DivaGals | November 7, 2014 | Gal Approved
STEP. You know the DivaGals love shoes. Sometimes, finding style and comfort in the same sole seems almost impossible. Thank goodness Pikolinos has mastered how to make those words best gal pals. The Spain-based shoe company offers quality leather goods with a Mediterranean feel, and the upcoming season is no exception.
At a VIP Spring 2015 preview, we loved a leather saddle shoe in pastel hues (AKAs take note; and we wonΓÇÖt mind if you wear one of each at the same time!). An┬áopen-toe strappy slingback with metallic emblishments weaved down its middle (pictured above)┬áalso caught our eye. Of course, we canΓÇÖt forget Pikolinos Maassai Project, where┬áMassa women in┬áKenya and Tanzania┬áweave their colorful artistic traditions into pretty sandals and bags and earn a fair-trade salary for their families. Now that’s diva-licious.
GUIDE. Life gets so complex at times, itΓÇÖs easy to forget your life game plan. Spiritual leader Joel Osteen wants to remind you that if you do have a dream, You Can, You Will achieve it! His newest book outlines 8 surefire qualities of a winner, from keeping your vision in front of you to staying passionate. One favorite instructions is to “Expect Good Things” in your life ΓÇô a motto every DivaGal should live by to fill her life with success and happiness.
PERK. Sometimes a DivaGal needs a good cup of morning joe to start the day off right. Enter brim, the compact programmable coffee station. This petite powerful machine is a 3-and-1 go-getter, allowing you to program it to make a single cup, a travel mug or a carafe of coffee for your brewing needs. Best part? It takes up so little counter space. Compact and efficient, just the way a DivaGal likes it.
TASTE. Love GucciΓÇª even when itΓÇÖs spooky? ThatΓÇÖs the question we got to answer when we attended W Union Square W POP IN Artist Den celebration the night before Halloween. Hosted by Spanish artist Domingo Zapata, who is the creative director of the new underground artist┬áspace, he and his team took two days to transform the space so we could be turned into GucciGhost fans. The icing on the (cup)cakes? A creepy skull design from Baked By Melissa. So our answer to Spooky Gucci ΓÇô a defining yes!
