In times of great worry or despair, many turn to food and alcohol for comfort. Others, mainly female, but a good few males too, turn to their credit cards to cheer them up. Cosmetics, clothes, gadgets; the list of items purchased on shopping sprees is endless. If a person really wanted to go crazy, they could spend well up to and above €200 in just one shop. Good for the economy. Bad for your finances.
My name is Aoife Bennett, and I am a Disney addict. In the words of Dory, I’m glad I got that off my chest.
With the rise of the internet age, a lot of people are getting all technological. The way forward is in computing, gadgetry and technology – pixels are in. As a computing student, of course I love computers. I love getting my hands on new laptops, phones, trying out the newest things, learning new languages for web development and scripting. But, nearly contrasting this, is a love for books. I think I have around 200 books of my own at this point, excluding the books I have grown out of. As [...]
On an expedition to the garage I found a dusty old box of headless Barbie dolls and a shamefully large pile of Disney videos, and decided it was time to divulge in 90’s kids nostalgia! But what really makes a proper 90’s kid? I’ve compiled a list of 10 90’s memories that we’re sure to all admit remembering at one point. • The Tamagotchi: The cheap plastic mini game that nobody ever really knew how to play properly. We just clicked the buttons and hoped for the best that our [...]
“Abortion tears her life apart,” the billboards scream. “There’s always a better answer.”
David Nalbandian was probably watching too much of the Euros 2012 the night before his final match against Marin Cilic at the Queens club on Sunday 17th of June. Despite Nalbandian being up a set, he became frustrated as Cilic broke his serve twice in the second set. Unable to control his frustration, he kicked an advertisement board underneath a line judges’ chair. The board hit into the line judges’ leg, causing an inch long cut. As a result, Nalbandian was forced to forfeit the match for unsportsmanlike conduct and [...]
What do you think about when you picture a charity shop? Stuffy? Old fashioned? Pointless even? This may have been true once upon a time but certainly not today. Their transformation infact sees them as the newest trend on the street. Especially if you’re a broke, jobless student in search of awesomeness, charity shops will definitely fit your bill. There is an obvious appeal of thrifting.But where does one Penney’s fanatic begin? Following my essential thrift guide of course! Thrift my way! DO call often! Unlike the identical [...]
Walking through parks with whirl winds of yellow and fire-bright red leaves it’s time to wrap up in luxe 70s fur, lady-chic silk blouses and leopard print ankle grazers. A mood of loveliness that happens to be sweeping fashion right now. Wherever the style wind takes you, kick through the fallen leaves in all the shades and deep jewel tones. Create your own storm of colours. You will fall head over heels when you see this style. A cute and buttoned-up sophisticated look intertwined with vintage. It sets a mood of loveliness and it happens [...]
This is the very first “Studenty Writers Podcast”, we don’t have a real name yet, this is our working title. This is a short show where a few of the studenty writers get together and have a chat. It’s only 10mins so why not give it a listen and let Ian and John’s voices ease you to sleep (little know fact both of their voices can make angles melt like chocolate!). Tonight the lads give a brief run down on the Irish referendum that is set to take place tomorrow [...]
