Form an orderly queue, ladies.  

You can now snap up a bottle of delicious pink gin alongside a complimentary bottle of prosecco for… wait for it… a mere €30.00. 

While getting lit on the cheap is definitely preferable, this deal means you don't have to sacrifice quality for alcohol quantity. 

Highlighted by Facebook page Rip-Offs & Good Deals, gin fans have been in raptures over the news of the offer, so make sure you get in there quick. 

The deal is happing in Dunnes Stores nationwide, and you can nab a Gordon's pink gin and a bottle of Montelliana prosecco.

With a 700ml bottle of Gordon's pink gin retailing for around €25.00 anyway, you can't really go wrong.

 We'll be stocking up for upcoming girl's nights out, hen parties and birthday gifts. 

See you in the queue. 



A few years back, Amy Huberman sent the Irish public into an absolute tailspin when she revealed that the outfit she rocked during Oscar week was something we could all actually get our hands on.

It turned out that the sleek white jumpsuit, which caused a serious stir on the red carpet, was an SS16 offering from Lennon Courtney, and it was stocked exclusively at Dunnes Stores.

From Brendan Courtney and Sonya Lennon to Paul Costello, there's no doubt that the Irish retailer has a knack for choosing to collaborate with designers who pique the interest of the stars, and they've done it again with Joanne Hynes.

Joanne's newest collection, which launched in Dunnes Stores last month, was highly-anticipated following the success of last year's collection, and now one of the music industry's most iconic stars is proudly showcasing one of Joanne's creations.

Earlier today,  Lady Gaga took to Instagram to give fans an insight into her latest look with three separate uploads, all of which included a Joanne Hynes headband. 

"Juan Vidal. Fashuns in the studio. #ladygaga #fashion #juanvidal and some very exciting accessories. Headband by @joannehynes," she captioned the post which has amassed almost 130,000 likes since its upload.

And it seems it's not just us who have a real grá for Joanne's stunning creation, with one follower writing: "Love that headband on you!"

We're with them on that one.

Oh, and one more thing while we have you! Don't forget that you can catch up on all your favourite shows for free for a month right here, so sign up now!



This time last year, we were #blessed by the Joanne Hynes collection for Dunnes Stores, which sold out super quick (people literally qued up for hours to shop the goods!)

Anyway, there were STUNNING fur coats, massive pops of cour and a metallic skirt we're still not over. 

Twelve months later, and we are ready for Joanne's newest collection, which launched in Dunnes Stores this week. 

Can I get a HALLELUJAH? 

Anyway, we were lucky enough to pop in to the gorgeous Dunnes to have a gawk at the beautiful clothes, and we were not disappointed. 

The collection was a refreshing burst of colour, with silk shirts, embellished collars and stand-out coats winning our hearts. 

The amazing Joanne took inspiration from strong historical Irish women, namely Maud Gonne and Constance Markievicz, with a nod to military styles. 

Now, naturally, we have our favourite pieces, which we simply MUST share with you. 

Firstly, we were OBSESSED with the embellished head bands, that gave us serious Blair Waldorf vibes.

Then, we locked eyes with a pair of velvet heels, that literally made our heart flutter with autumnal excitement.

Our FAVOURITE piece in the entire collection was, naturally, the beautiful red military-style coat.

Prices for this marvellous collection start at just €25, and go up to a pretty pricey €950 – so there is something for every budget! 

However, it is set to sell out pretty darn fast (not surprising), so get your butts to Dunnes ASAP. 


None of us can deny the fact that Mondays are HARD. 

You've enjoyed lie-ins, brunches and nights out with the gals, and all of a sudden you have to drag yourself out of the bed to go to WORK (of all places). 

However, you know what genuinely helps with this sad reality?

It has been scientifically proven that animals are a great way to ease stress and anxiety, and even boost productivity.

We decided to put this theory to the test on this fine Monday morning, and HOLY SH*T, was it good. 

I came in extra early to prepare, even putting on extra makeup – to impress my new furry friends, obviously. 

I nipped down to Dunnes Stores to pick up some delicious treats for the doggos, and was greeted with some seriously groovy specials.

I love the smell of saving money in the morning! 

Anyway, at around 9am, Misty, Herbie, Twiggy and Tucker arrived, and I'm fairly certain I shed a tear with the actual excitement.

The morning continued, in an array of playing fetch, dancing (to Who Let The Dogs Out – duh!), and general cuteness. 

We even let the doggos help us with work, and they proved to be particularly good with the computer *Google searched 101 Dalmations*

We held a very special meeting, where the dogs helped us with a client presentation – they nailed it, FYI.

Sadly, the pup-tastic morning had to end, despite my best attempts to run away (with the dogs in my bag!).

My four new furry friends went home, and left me working away, and I won't lie – I genuinely feel more relaxed and productive.

Should every day be 'bring your dog to work day'? 




While they might not have nabbed a seat at Sunday's Oscars, the Irish contingent have been out in force in LA this week for some seriously glam pre-parties.

One of the most hotly anticipated events on the pre-Oscars calendar is the Oscar Wilde party, hosted for the fifth year in a row by JJ Abrams at his Bad Robot studios in Santa Monica.

Among the invited guests this year were Sarah Greene, James Corden, Snow Patrol, Lenny Abrahamson and the ever-stylish Amy Huberman, who wowed in a sleek white jumpsuit.

Looking at the snaps of Amy in her plunge-necked, wide leg ensemble, you'd be forgiven for thinking she had dropped thousands on her outfit, but it is in fact from a VERY budget-friendly Irish retailer.

Yup, the jumpsuit is an SS16 offering from Lennon Courtney, stocked exclusively at Dunnes Stores.

Brendan Courtney and Sonya Lennon's label has made quite a name for itself with sleek, colour-blocked pieces that offer a different silhouette from what Dunnes shoppers may be used to.

"Hey @lennoncourtney your jumpsuit has been tried and tested and it totally works, thank you!" Amy wrote on Instagram, also tagging her footwear collection, Bourbon.

The actress wasn't the only attendee who was repping Irish designers.

We love seeing Irish designers getting some international coverage – keep it up, ladies.



Kerry football star Paul Galvin is clearly a man of many talents – and off the GAA pitch, he's also undeniably forged a reputation as a fashionisto to be reckoned with. 

Now, after months of rumour and speculation, the 35-year-old has released his menswear collaboration with Dunnes.

Delightfully, it's all very Paul: totaling 21 pieces, fans can choose from several modern-man items such as monochrome tees (think Alexander Wang) dropped crotched joggers, hi-top leather trainers and even a khaki-coloured cape. Prices start from €25 and peak at a reasonable €100.

So far so standard.

What is somewhat more surprising, however, is the inspiration behind the designs: namely the lyrics of our national anthem, Amhran na bhFiann.

In fact, the collection itself has been entitled Vanguard. Personally chosen by Paul, it is a word that "aims to capture the spirit of the vanguard warriors, the risk takers, who led military movements from the front". 

"This is not so much a clothing collection as a clothing movement," Mr Galvin states via a just-issued press release. "It represents new thoughts, new language, and hopefully a new direction for menswear in Ireland."

The Amhran na bhFiann lyrics put to good use too, with "sinne fianna fáil," and "faoi mhóid bheith saor" being singled out for inclusion: the English language versions of the lines – "warriors are we," and "sworn to be free" – have been printed on t-shirts and sweatshirts.

And while the collaboration is sure to be a big hit, one woman who is not always impressed by Paul's style is his own Kerry mammy.

Close to a year ago when he appeared opposite Ryan Tubridy on the Late Late Show, he wore a Public School oversized white shirt – a choice of attire he later admitted had failed to impress Mrs Galvin.

Indeed, on his website he revealed that she had even threatened to hide his purchase.

Paul is now happily planning his wedding to radio presenter Louise Duffy; he popped the question in New York in the spring and they've pencilled in a date for "early next year".

Paul Galvin's 21-piece debut menswear collection in collaboration with Dunnes Stores is available to buy online at dunnesstores.com and in selected Dunnes Stores.




Our love affair with winter has been waning of late with all the awful wind and rain, but all we needed was some style inspiration to get us in the seasonal spirit all over again!
