Gorgeous jewellery brand Pandora has unleashed a capsule collection of limited-edition The Lion King-themed charms to celebrate the live-action Disney reboot.

The upcoming movie is a remake of the iconic 1994 film, which hit cinemas last week to huge commercial ticket sales. The circle of style is roaring at Pride Rock right now with this bling, that's for sure.

Pandora's line embodies numerous themes of the film; bravery, strength, wisdom, friendship and empowerment, and includes a selection of stunning gold charms and bracelets.

Designed to be worn separately or layered to create a unique look, each of the scenes depicted aims to capture the spirit and special moments from the tale.

Memorable moments such as Mufasa referencing the circle of life to Simba, Rafiki's drawing of Simba and Pumba and Timon meeting the young lion cub are represented in the jewellery.

The heart-warming connection between the kings of the Pride Lands is shown in one charm with golden metal, and it's sure to be a sell-out.

You'll 100 percent feel like queen of the African savannas with these jewels draped all over you. That wild fierceness is on point.

The film stars the voicing talents of Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, Billy Eichner and Seth Rogan as Timona and Pumba, James Earl Jones returning as Mufasa and Chiwetel Ejiofar as Scar.

Jon Favreau's CGI-animated take on the animation is ground-breaking cinema, so why not celebrate your favourite childhood film literally coming to life?

The Lion King is in cinemas now, and Pandora's limited-edition capsule collection is available worldwide in stores or online here. Prices start at €39, we'd be LION if we said it wasn't worth the cash.

Brands have been impersonating Kim Kardashian and her family's style for YEARS (have you seen Boohoo and Fashion Nova's websites?) but now Kim's had enough.

Fast-fashion companies have been stealing original designers from "true designers", and the KK Beauty mogul has finally commented on the Instagram-type brand lookalikes.

She wrote a host of tweets addressing the issue, and has officially filed a lawsuit against Missguided for $10 million;

"It’s devastating to see these fashion companies rip off designs that have taken the blood, sweat and tears of true designers who have put their all into their own original ideas."

She addressed the Yeezy controversy, airing out her annoyance that fashion organisations have been blatantly copying her husband Kanye West's designs;

"I’ve watched these companies profit off my husband’s work for years and now that it’s also affecting designers who have been so generous to give me access to their beautiful works, I can no longer sit silent," she said.

She continued, referencing the Thierry Mugler dress she recently wore;

"Only two days ago, I was privileged enough to wear a one-of-a-kind vintage Mugler dress and in less than 24 hours it was knocked off and thrown up on a site – but it's not for sale. You have to sign up for a waitlist because the dress hasn’t even been made to sell yet."

"My relationships with designers are very important to me. It's taken me over a decade to build them and I have a huge amount of respect for the amount of work that they put into bringing their ideas to life."

"I often plan for weeks, sometimes months, and even a year in advance, and I’m grateful for every fashion moment those designers and their dresses have helped me create," she tweeted.

While Kim didn't actually name any fashion brands, she filed a $10 million lawsuit against Missguided for using her trademarked name and likeness to promote it's product online, according to E! News.

E! News obtained the documents detailing the lawsuit against the UK-based company. In the suit, Kim writes that their actions are a "blatant and willful violation of her statutory and common law rights of publicity." 

The document states that "companies have sought out ways to leverage Kim's celebrity status and social media following without seeking her consent," and have purposefully allowed her to be "an unwitting and unwilling spokesperson of their products."

The lawsuit also states that Missguided has used Kim's likeness for their "marketing and sales strategy" without the TV personality's consent.

"Like other 'fast fashion' companies, Missguided, which sells clothing throughout the world on its website (among others), has become notorious for 'knocking off' the clothing worn by celebrities like Kardashian," the suit continues.

"Missguided does not merely replicate the looks of these celebrities as seen on red carpets, in paparazzi photos, and in social media posts. Missguided systematically uses the names and images of Kardashian and other celebrities to advertise and spark interest in its website and clothing."

Missguided issued the following statement to E! News.

"We haven't received any notification of legal action, but in any event any action based on online banter would be meritless," the statement read. "Missguided shoppers know the score- We're about the celeb look, for people without their bucks. For the record, as much as we love her style, we're not working with Kim on anything."

Last February, the reality TV star posed in an unreleased gold dress her husband Kanye West made for her last summer, and wrote on Instagram;

"P.S. fast fashion brands, can you please wait until I wear this in real life before you knock it off," she captioned her post. Fashion Nova created basically the same dress not long afterwards.

"Hey @KimKardashian, We just couldn't help ourselves," they wrote on Instagram. Cheeky bunch they are…

As far as we know, Kim has yet to file a lawsuit against Fashion Nova. Missguided also copied the exact same dress.

They're fairly shameless, we have to admit. Time will tell if the Kardashian manages to quench the copycats.

"Every bride has to find her own style," Charlotte reminded Miranda in one particularly memorable episode of Sex and the City.

And never was a truer word said.

While diamanté might be dealbreaker for one bride, it might be the main requirement for another. And while a tiara may be the last thing a newly engaged woman wants to consider, it might be the first port of call for another.

With that in mind, we've taken it upon ourselves to do a little research and we've chosen 8 of the most beautiful bridal tiaras Instagram has to offer.

So, without further ado…

1. Oh, so dainty and delicate

2. We love the subtlety of this look 


3. The gold floral crown FTW 


4. Each leaf and flower are handpainted… 


5. And then there's this one 


6. Not for everyone, but we ADORE.

8. And here, ladies, is our ultimate FAVOURITE



Mentioning the ‘C’ word this side of Halloween may be taboo, but we swear we’ve got a very good excuse.

As the shops quickly fill with dazzling sequins, velvety reds and luxurious golds, we’ve found the perfect lipstick line to compliment your party season style.

After a year filled with Kylie Jenner inspired metallic lips, L’Oréal has released the Gold Obsession Collection which features three moisturising shades designed to complement all skin tones with gold coated pigments.

Try the Rose Gold shade for daytime, use Nude Gold for added glam or go all out with Plum Gold for a more daring party look.

The range debuted at Paris Fashion Week last month and is now available in selected pharmacies nationwide, with each lipstick retailing for €11.99.


OK ladies now let's get in  gorgeous Gold Obsession pic @georginaloasby #fromabove #flatlay #makeup #mua #redlip #goldobsession

Congratulations are in store for Michael McKillop, he was won GOLD in the middle distance running in Rio.

The Glengormley native had to run in 29C heat and took the lead with 600m to go alongside Canada's Liam Stanley.

With 200m to go, Michael eased away from Liam and into victory at 4:12.12.

The gold medalist has a form of cerebral palsy and won his first Paralympic gold in the 800m in Beijing.

This is Ireland's third medal of the Paralympic Games of 2016.

We're delighted for Michael.


There seems to be a beauty product for every nook, cranny and follicle on our bodies. 

It's exhausting to keep up!

But when Pure Gold Collagen caught our eye, we had to look deeper into this beauty trend. 

Pure Gold Collagen is a liquid beauty supplement designed to nourish skin from the inside out, targeting the areas most associated with collagen loss.

The active ingredients claim to be twenty times more effective than using a topical collagen cream or collagen pill. Impressive!

Collagen plays a key role in providing the structural scaffolding for cells, tissues and organs, as well as giving your skin strength and plumpness. 

As we age, the production of collagen gradually decreases which causes the loss of elasticity and increased dryness – and nobody has time for that!

Astonishingly, our skin will start to sag when we hit our late-twenties! So it's really time for most of us to start prepping our skin for this loss.

In Pure Gold Collagen, the combination of ingredients is said to plump up the skin in only six weeks. It also contains vitamin C to boost the efficacy of those ingredients. 

If you're sold already, there are numerous rave reviews on the Internet and you won't have to look too far if you want to try it out as well, as it's available in Boots!

We think we might give this one a try!



Right, everyone get to Monaghan ASAP.

Conroy Gold and Natural Resources has confirmed the discovery of a gold deposits in soil near Rockcorry in Co. Monaghan.

The company released a statement that said "an extensive 700m by 300m gold-in-soil anomaly" had been discovered. This revealed that there are four gold-in-soil samples above 20 parts per billion, and a further five above 10 parts per billion. 

So basically, this confirms that there is gold to be found in Monaghan!

Professor Richard Conroy, chairman for the company said “this discovery confirms the gold potential of the company’s licences in the area lying between the company’s existing gold targets.”

The new findings are about 14KM southwest of Clontibret where the company is proposing to develop their first gold mine in the area. Yes, an actual gold mine. Could we finally be leaving the austerity woes behind us? Maybe!

The discovery adds further evidence to the continuity of a gold trend that runs from County Armagh, across Monaghan and Cavan. Jackpot!



The official trailer has been released for GOLD, a new film by IFTA winning writer and director Niall Heery, and it looks it could be up there with some of the best Irish films to date.

The film tells the story of Ray, a father on a mission to re-connect with the daughter and ex-girlfriend that he hasn’t seen in 12 years. However, it turns out they are now living with his former controlling and regimented P.E. teacher and as you can imagine, his attempts to reconnect with his daughter don’t go as planned.

The film stars Maisie Williams from Game of Thrones, David Wilmot from Calvary, Kerry Condon from The Runway and James Nesbitt from The Hobbit, and judging from the trailer, they give a great performance throughout.

We can’t wait for this to be released this autumn – we’ve a feeling there will be many a laugh had at ‘Frank the Wank’s’ expense!
