Start stocking up on fake tan. It seems the warm and sunny days of summer are officially at an end.

Autumn has arrived and with it comes cool temperatures and light winds.

Ireland will be experiencing highs of 14 degrees in some areas, the coldest it has been in two months, according to Met Éireann.

On the west coast, rain is expected to start on the Atlantic coast before sweeping inland across the rest of the country overnight.

Temperatures will reach lows between 5 and 9 degrees tonight with light breezes.

Today and tomorrow is expected to alternate between sunny spells and scattered showers. So, at least we will not have to suffer through consistent downpour.

For Dublin, however, temperatures will be slightly higher than that of the western and northern regions, reaching a high of 18 or 19 degrees tomorrow.

However, don’t count on outdoor plans this weekend. Although it will be warm and humid, Met Éireann predicts on-and-off-again showers with moderate winds on Saturday.

The North will have a wetter weekend and can expect heavier showers.

Although Sunday will clear the clouds a bit in the afternoon, scattered showers will occupy the eastern counties with a high of 17-22 degrees.

We will miss clear skies and summer sunshine, but hopefully the rainfall with start replenishing the Irish Water shortage.

Who would have thought we needed more rain in Ireland?

Overall, we should prepare for a humid, rainy weekend with slightly cooler temperatures than it has been of late.

As of now, next week is predicted to have the same forecast as this weekend, with dryer intervals in the east and south.



We’ve long suspected that Kate Middleton is some kind of superhero and finally it seems we have found actual proof.

As well as looking impeccable all of the time and possessing the ability to sell out entire clothing lines at the drop of a hat, the Duchess of Cambridge has now revealed that she can actually fly.

The Internet has been left baffled by a recent photo in which the Royal beauty floats alongside David Cameron and brother-in-law Price Harry without either foot touching the ground.

Dressed in a collared lace dress for the Thiepval Memorial, the mother of two seems to hover angelically in the air as she looks off into the distance.

Saint Kate?  We think so.

Happy tears, sad tears, onion-chopping tears… getting a bit watery-eyed is a perfectly natural part of life, but it turns out that it's pretty darn artistic too.

Dutch artist Maurice Mikkers, who also happens to be a medical laboratory analyst, shed a few tears one day after stubbing his toe, and decided to check out the results under a microscope.

He was so chuffed with what he saw that he set out to create a full series of microscope-based photos of tears, from his own tears and those of willing volunteers.

He's dubbed the series The Imaginarium Of Tears, and it's very impressive.

Maurice says he didn't notice much difference between the microscopic look of say, the tears he cried while chopping onions and the tears a friend with an ill father had cried – but notes that each tear was still uniquely different because of the "oils, enzymes and antibodies" that formed it.

However another similar experiment last year did show up some interesting results. When examined in closer detail, it seems that our tears do vary somewhat depending on the reasons behind them.

Photographer Rose-Lynn Fisher studied the composition of 100 different tears for her exhibition The Topography of Tears and discovered that basal tears (the ones that our body produces to lubricate our eyes) are drastically different from the tears that happen when we are chopping onions.

Similarly, tears of laughter have a very different make-up than tears of sorrow. Again, this could be down to the molecular make-up of each tear, or could be due to other external factors.

"There are so many variables—there’s the chemistry, the viscosity, the setting, the evaporation rate and the settings of the microscope," Jospeh Stromberg of the Smithsonian’s Collage of Arts and Sciences told Lifebuzz of Fisher's work.

Fascinating – and pretty beautiful too.



We know they are bad for us and it will lead nowhere good and they won't ever change and blah blah blah… but there are so many reasons women love a bad boy. Like these:

1. They are confident 

Bad boys wouldn’t be able to pull off half their antics if they weren’t brimming with confidence. 

2. They are indifferent 

They just don’t give a damn. Rule books are not applicable to them and when it comes to getting things done, it’s either their way of the highway. You can’t expect to change him, or set him straight as he makes his rules and believes that life is to be lived on the edge. Take it or leave it, that’s the attitude they flaunt and it’s massively sexy. For a while anyway. 

3. They are exciting and adventurous 

Among the most prominent characteristics you’d find abundantly in bad boys is their love for excitement and adventure. Bad boys are always testing the boundaries and pushing the envelope when it comes to their life and women just can’t get enough of this attitude. They find it intriguing and extremely exciting.

4. They are challenging and mysterious 

Remember, if your behavior becomes routine, women are bound to find you boring. Women want men who are a challenge. As for the mysterious streak, contrary to popular belief that women want dates booked in, a little bit of the the guessing game actually gives us a high like no other.

5. They are very masculine 

This often goes hand-in-hand with being confident, indifferent, exciting, adventurous etc. Bad boys are often rugged and in-control. That doesn’t mean that they are controlling, they just know how to get what they want without breaking into a sweat. They speak clearly and confidently, they look you in the eye, they are passionate about what they believe in. Most importantly, they still know how to treat a lady and make her feel good. To them the latter is a mastered skill.

6. They make you feel like the only girl in the world

Just don't be fooled into thinking you are…this is a bad boy we are talking about, remember?

This super cool video by teenager Ashley Mardell gives us an idea of what our lives would be like as a video – that we could rewind, pause or add fancy effects to.

But would that necessarily be a good thing?

This is pretty cool!
