From the moment you step onto the street they are watching you. They notice your every movement and will stop at nothing to get their hands on your hard-earned cash. Do not think for a second you will be spared. For these people are trained to gain your trust and to overwhelm you with so much guilt and pressure that you will eventually give in to their ludicrous demands. They are a menace to cities all over the world and their numbers are increasing at an alarming rate. Hated by [...]
Has there ever been an item of clothing to match the magic of a suit? When it comes to the ultimate item of clothing there is no better feeling than wearing a fresh, well fitted suit. A man may not wear a suit this week or this month but over this year an occasion will be important enough to warrant the term “Suit Up.” When it comes to making a first impression nothing says a man means business like wearing a suit, being clean shaven and having an air of [...]
“Mommy – where do babies come from?” “Well dear, when mommies and daddies love each other very much…” This question has always provoked a rehearsed answer: a disturbing account of love, marriage and an infant in a carriage, or an insulting tale involving a stork or Jesus. As we grew older we discovered that birds and bees were in fact different species, storks did not immigrate to Ireland, and bellybuttons were a suspiciously small part of the body. Life just got a whole lot more complicated, and even the bizarre [...]
Returning to education as a mature student is a major decision for anyone to make and a guaranteed life changer.
Hallowe’en. That time of year when the small people dress up and run around, banging on their neighbour’s doors and generally wrecking the heads of all around, looking for sweets and chocolate. That time of year when Mammy buys hideously sugary lollipops and chewy jellies, and throws about twenty at any child that has the sense to come to our door. This is probably one of the reasons we have so many nocturnal callers on this particular evening. Hallowe’en is also the time when those of us too old to [...]
We all dread a Mean Girls‘ Regina George moment. That moment when poor Regina doesn’t fit into a size two anymore, struggles to fit into her clothes and is forced to wear tracky bottoms; and if there is one thing to take away from that movie, let it be this: STAY AWAY FROM THE CALTEEN BARS! According to a British survey, the number one confidence knocker in women, is putting on weight. When the jeans you absolutely worship don’t fit anymore, and the weighing scale has hit the roof as far as we are concerned, the world has ended. Second is [...]
Nobody expected what happened at the weekend at Old Trafford. It was Man Utd’s worst home defeat since February 1955: United fans were keen to remind their ‘noisy neighbours’ who the champions are and City fans were desperate to prove that they can match their successful rivals. As it turned out, they not only matched them, they battered them, inflicting a humiliating 6-1 loss on last season’s title winners. Both sides showed their intent from the off, starting with attacking line-ups, which included Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck leading the line [...]
*Warning this is not advice on how to land the man of your dreams this is for those girls out there who maybe haven’t gotten any in a while and are in serious need of the shift/ride* My friends and I have discussed this before and have come to the conclusion that if a girl really wants it, she can get it on any given night out. I’m not saying that any girl could get any guy, and that men are just puppets to be used and manipulated (but hey [...]
What better way to invigorate your wardrobe and fashion sense, than to trade in your old threads for some shiny new ones, or better still some cold hard cash? Consignment stores, in this case, are the only way to go for those of us on student budgets. For those of you who don’t understand the process – this is how it works: Siopaella is Ireland’s innovative new consignment store which caters for both men and women, and the first one that gives you the option of either selling, consigning or [...]
Earlier this month, The Guardian published an article about “The New Boring” in pop music, mentioning acts like Ed Sheeran, Birdy and Mumford & Sons; artists who are happy to stand back and let the music do the talking. The article cites Adele’s now famous performance at the Brit Awards this year, where she sang “Someone Like You” stripped back to the bare essentials of vocals and piano, as the moment where the floodgates opened to let in a wave of “beige music”. I’ll admit it freely – as much [...]
