It’s hard to live when you’re waiting for a grant. Believe me, I know. I’ve spent six weeks in college, living away from home, with €50 a week to keep me going. This might sound like a lot, but you’d be surprised. Over the weeks, I’ve learned how to be a tight arse and live like an authentic poor student. If like me, you’re still waiting, or like many of my friends you’re still waiting to be approved for a grant, here’s a few tips to keep you going. Even [...]

Moving to college is such a fun and exciting thing. New experiences, new friends and of course the prospect of maybe getting a new squeeze. However, in this whirlwind of new and exciting experiences of getting to know yourself and and cementing new relationships, some things are forgotten. Many students move away from home for the first time for college and if the stress of having to cook for yourself and figure out the immensely complex task of doing your own washing isn’t enough, then the guilt about leaving your family pet [...]
I can still remember the instructions I was given by my parents before doing anything when I was that bit younger. I was told to “Wait for the Green Man,” when crossing a road; I was told to “Put your seat-belt on,” the minute I got in a car, and was warned “Don’t talk to strangers!” as I left my house to go out and play; before being dropped off at underage discos my friends and I were told to, “Stick together and don’t wander off on your own.” I [...]
Shoes. They can be used to dress up or down an outfit, to keep your toes warm, or to show off bright yellow nail polish. They can have heels, open toes, laces, wedges or straps. Cheap canvas tennis shoes, that wear holes and fall to pieces after a mere three wears, or expensive knee-high patent leather boots that last for years and go with everything. In the last year or so, I have developed quite the healthy fascination for shoes. I have at least eighty pairs . Shneakers (to give [...]
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 [...]
Britney Spears has just released her music video for new single Criminal. The popstar who played gigs in Dublin’s the O2 and the Odyssey Arena, Belfast this week has cast her current beau, Jason Trawick, as her “bad boy” lover in the video. The couple play a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde who spend most of their time locked in an embrace. In the video, Britney gives her fans a steamy look into what may go on in her and Trawick’s bedroom. The pair appear to be completely naked in one [...]
Girls, we all know that feeling when you put your feet into a brand new pair of stilettos and take a good long look at yourself in the mirror. Immediately you notice how much slimmer, longer and more toned your legs look. You see a big improvement in your posture as you stand up tall with shoulders back and most importantly you feel the big boost in your confidence as you suddenly think, “Yeah, I don’t look half bad.” Stilettos are the ultimate ego enhancer. Actress and notorious pin-up Marilyn [...]
When cleaning out my room – the tip that it is I came across a video of Father Ted. As I no longer own a VCR, It made my realise how much technology has come along since then. This chunky rectangular mess was known as a Video tape. Great in its day it allowed us kids to watch endless re-runs of The Lion King and Cinderella. How times have changed – like it actually had tape in it. It also acted as a recorder so when you were going trick or treating [...]
