Weekend Roundup – The Ten Things Loved This Week

These are a few of our favourite things...

Welcome to the Weekend!

Another Friday rolls around! We’re hoping you’re all set for a sunny long weekend! Here are ten things that put a smile on our faces this week…



A+ for A|Wear

We’re loving the look of the new A|Wear High Summer ’13 Collection range, especially the dresses which are perfect for the beach and the bar. Summer wardrobes have just been made so much easier! Check out the full collection here.


Take That – and Party!

Take That superfan Rebecca had the pleasure of speaking to the wonderful Mark Owen this week, ahead of the release of his new album The Art Of Doing Nothing, due out next month. 


Smell my face? 

Michelle has become completely obsessed with this beauty buy, to the point where she’s actually asked several friends and family members to smell her face after applying. It really does smell lovely, but that’s hardly the point.


Ooh, saucy!

Dinners sorted as Philadelphia treated us to their new cooking sauces this week. Add chicken and vegetables for an instant “Yum” factor. you can check out their recipes here… 


Finest Brews in Foynes 

Denise and Rebecca enjoyed a few cuppas in the sunshine this week… disputing the fact that it’s tough to drink a hot drink in the sun. If you’re a fan of coffee, head to the Foynes Irish Coffee Festival from today, May 31st to Sunday, June 2nd in the lovely Limerick village of Foynes. Expect fireworks, street entertainers, live bands and (drum roll please) the world famous Irish Coffee Making Championship. 



Despicable Me… too?  

We adored the first Despicable Me movie, so this Steve Carrell appearance on the Ellen show earlier this week was all kinds of wonderful. Also – we want a minion.


Tayto Park 

Mr. Tayto sent us an invitation to come out to Tayto Park this week, and Sue was delighted to take up the offer. She had a brilliant time, in fact she hasn’t really stopped talking about it since…



Golden Glow

Denise has started to use Cocoa Brown Day To Night tan this week and will be ready to review it for next week’s Tan Thursday. So far, so good… Looks like she could be glowing for the Bank Holiday weekend!



The greatest thing to happen to Sue all year was the epic battle which occurred on Vincent Browne earlier this week between Vincent and Fine Gael TD Bernard Durkan. Even Vincent thought it was kind of funny…
