GAL APPROVED Weekend: Last Night; Clear Sound, Sweet Candles & Find the Love of Your Life!By DIVAGALS | February 14, 2014 | Entertainment, Gal Approved
SEE. While we’re sure out hearts will be aflutter over Colin Farell in A Winter’s Tale, we totally plan to get our laugh on this Valentine’s Day with About Last Night. The movie, which is the retelling of the 1986 comedy starring Rob Lowe and Demi Moore, is the movie version of the David Mamet play, Sexual Perversity in Chicago. Now set in Los Angeles, the movie leads with an African-American cast including funnyman Kevin Hart, hottie Michael Ealy and beauties Regina Hall and Joy Bryant.┬á Nice to see that love’s comic moments come in all hues. Opens today nationwide.
DATE. Single again on Valentine’s Day? Match.com wants to change that. The DivaGals hit the online site’s love event, where Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger led a panel on dating and mating based on Match.com’s 2014 Singles In America fourth annual study. Advice we liked? “You can go up or down 10 years when looking for a companion,” Patti declared. An easy feat on Match.com since you can punch in your ideal age range. Happy searching!
HEAR. Big sound can come in small packages. At the Accessory2 Style Tweetup Sanctuary Suite inside the Hyatt Union Square, hosted by HSN star and The Color Of Beauty’s Fashion Influencer of the Year Kimmie Smith, we got our hands on the Jellyfish Bluetooth speaker. This tiny, portable cube plugs into your smartphone, computer or any headset outlet, where it can amplify sound up to 30 feet. With a rechargeable USB port, you can enjoy your tunes for up to 4 hours. That’s a lot of music on the go!
LIGHT. Winter keeps dragging along, which has everyone on the East Coast thinking, “Will this season ever be over?” Even if you can’t get away, you can make your home smell like a warm exotic location. Archipelago‘s excursion collection of candles comes in woodsy, floral and musk that transport your senses to places like Dubai, Bali and Fiji. Heavenly!
DRESS. We’ve just finished up NY Fashion Week Fall ’14 and boy, our heels are tired! You can check out all the shows we hit, which includes Ruffian and Reem Acra (below). We also took in several shows at NOLCHA Fashion Week, which included emerging designers like Christina Yi, Gail Be, L Catherine London and Danny Tabet. And we sat next to The Vampire Diaries‘ Kat Graham in the front row!
