The UCD Law Society have come up with a novel, and successful way to promote their upcoming Ball. The students, with the professional help of the creators of Marryokes.com, have created a promotional video which has achieved unprecedented success. Studenty talked to Ciara Hickey-Johnson about the advertising campaign, “The video is a promo for our ball and was intended to be played before lectures and to be circulated via social media sites. We recorded it last Tuesday in the UCD Law School at Roebuck Castle, and we got some of [...]
About DonnaFollowing a lengthy and consuming obsession with Micheal Bay’s 1998 epic, Armageddon, I believed myself destined to become an astronaut up until the healthy age of twenty. When the reality of calculus and the seemingly unspoken rule that all physicists have to wear brown hit me, I opted for a glamorous crash landing out of the field of astrophysics, and into the world of fashion journalism. With a penchant for all things 1950’s, and a love of Vogue, anything pretty, spotty and leopard print, I have a unique style that falls somewhere in the middle of a Bet Lynch and Edwina Monsoon impersonator. My fashion sense may also be influenced by knowingly bad taste in music, and the odd Taking Back Sunday tee does unashamedly decorate my floordrobe. While keeping you up to date with all things sartorial – high fashion, low fashion and the bits in the middle, I aim to deliver a blog with a difference. There will be no photos of me wearing belts I bought in Urban Outfitters. Instead, I shall aim to be the Penneys of your blogosphere – making fashion cheap, colourful and accessible to everyone.

After Enda’s emotive address to the nation, I feel it is only proper that a person speak on the matter and share her primary grievance… I speak to you today at a time of great urgency. This once grand country is facing dark times ahead. Tayto Park was a disappointment and we drew Spain in the Euro’s. Worse still, our economy is shite. Where once we had fields of gold, there lies the scorched grass of regret. We were too busy bathing in vermeil and eating mink, and never stopped to [...]
