Weekend Roundup – The Ten Things Loved This Week

Another Friday rolls around! Here are ten things that put a smile on our faces this week…


Familiar faces on Celebrity Apprentice

Grace enjoyed nothing more this week than Monday night’s episode of TV3’s Celebrity Apprentice. Four weeks in and she is just about over Martin Maloney being fired in the first episode (she does love a bit of Hardy Bucks), Grace saw two other faces onscreen that she has a lot of time for, her lovely colleagues Michelle and Rebecca.

The girls were on call to check out the advertising skills of Team Athena and Team Iconic. This week’s task was launching a new product for Durex, however it’s fair to say that Rebecca was less than impressed with it all.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers

The actor made Rebecca’s week when he told her she had a “lovely Northern accent” at the preview screening of his new show Dracula which airs on Sky Living on the 31st of October. Rebecca thinks it’s going to be her new television addiction although we reckon she’s a bit biased now that she’s met the leading man!

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

In a former life, Michelle is convinced she was a Broadway star. Unfortunately, she used up all the talent on that outing and as such cannot hold a note in this life, to save her life. It hasn’t dimmed her love of all things musical though, so a night spent at the fabulous Bord Gais Energy Theatre to see her childhood idol Jason Donovan in a touring Priscilla show was the best laugh she’s had in ages. There was a well-deserved standing ovation on opening night. You have until next Wednesday to see it, and you really should.

Nescafé Dolce Gusto Mini Me
Cathy attended a gorgeous lunch at Cliff Townhouse where she was introduced to the delights of the Nescafe Mini Me, a super cute little machine that delivers “real” coffee in seconds. There are numerous types to choose from and as a coffee addict, Cathy was suitably impressed.
Shine Bright 
This weeks, Sue went along to the new Pearlys Ltd counter in Harvey Nichols to have her teeth whitened. Sue went for the new Unique 20 Minute Express Brighten Treatment and has bascially been smiling at everyone since… all the time.

Walkers everywhere!

The Walking Dead is back on our screens, which means that Úna can finally fill that zombie “craving” that she’s been having. She’s already signed up for an online course that ties in with the show (seriously). Check it out here.

Interesting Invitations

From fake fingers to snow globes, we’ve been getting all sorts of invitations into the office this week and as someone who is already looking forward to the festive season and has started her Christmas shopping, Rebecca was very impressed by the one sent in by Lidl Ireland.

Positive Energy

Michelle is a magpie, and as such she’s spent much of this morning staring at the latest addition to her Alex & Ani collection, the ‘Key to my Heart’ charm bangle. Michelle is firmly of the opinion that we could all do with a little more #PositiveEnergy in our lives, which is why everyone she knows and loves is getting one of these for Christmas. She may have just ruined the surprise.

Getting the Gloss
Sue and Michelle got the latest Glossybox delivered this week and they’ve been raving about the MeMeMe Cherub’s Blush Cheek and Lip Tint.

With love from Portugal 

This week Úna arrived back in office from her wee holiday in Portugal, and instead of the classic bar of Toblerone she decided to splash out in Duty Free on a box of Port Truffles for the team – delicious.
