Boots Ireland have today launched their Night Walks for Night Nurses campaign, encouraging people to join fundraising Night Walks in either Phoenix Park, Dublin (16 August) or  Blackrock Castle (Carpark), Cork (23 August).

Tickets to join the 5km walk cost €15 for an adult, and under 16s go free. Walks start at 7.30pm in Dublin and 7.00 pm in Cork. Each adult ticket comes with a free t-shirt.

Alongside the walks, Honour Tags are on sale in Boots stores nationwide for €2. Customers can purchase a tag in honour of someone who has survived or passed away from cancer. One metre will be walked in honour of that person and the tags are brought to respective walks. The front of the tag allows for the name of the individual with space on the back for a personal message.

Funds raised will go towards the Irish Cancer Society Night Nursing service, which provides end of life care for cancer patients in their own home, allowing them to pass away at home surrounded by family and loved ones as well as giving much needed respite for the family caring for them.

The Night Nurse service has run for over 30 years and operates in every county in Ireland. The service has made a huge contribution to cancer support, providing over 7,400 nights of care in 2018 alone, to 1,861 patients. There are 180 Night Nurses in operation around Ireland, providing up to 10 nights of care for cancer patients in their own home, during the last days of their life. The service is provided completely free of charge.

Ambassador Teresa Mannion said: “Having faced cancer myself, I saw the impact it has not only on those with a diagnosis, but on their loved ones also. Patients, and those supporting them, are exhausted both physically and mentally and the Irish Cancer Society’s Night Nurses play such a critical caring role. Night Nurses allow everyone to sleep, assured that they are in the best hands, and it’s wonderful to see Boots step up and host fundraisers such as these.”

 Boots MD Bernadette Lavery said: “We were thrilled to see over 600 people attend the walks last year, raising more than €50,000 for this great service. Since partnering with the Irish Cancer Society back in 2012 we have raised over €1.4 million or over 4,000 nights for this much-needed service, and we are incredibly proud of Boots’ ongoing commitment to supporting those living with cancer. We’ve set ourselves a target to raise more than ever before this year, so would love to see more participants at our walks, which are truly inspirational and uplifting events.”

Speaking at the launch of the Night Walks campaign, Averil Power, Chief Executive, Irish Cancer Society, said: “The Night Nursing service allows cancer patients to remain in their own home during their last days. The Night Nurses are there through the night, keeping the patient comfortable, while also supporting family members during a very difficult time. As the service is almost entirely donation-funded, we rely on the support of Boots staff and customers to ensure we can be there for more families in need of this crucial care.”

Crêpes have swiftly become one of our favourite foods. Ever since visiting Paris, we've been eager to find the best spot in Dublin to devour the French treat and we've finally found THE place.

Voici in Rathmines has answered our prayers with their heavenly menus and we are most definitely visiting them on Bastille Day.

Authentic French eatery, Voici, celebrates things Crêpe and Galette all year round. Marking Bastille Day, this July 14, these Master Crêpeieres are sharing their tips, trivia and experience of this French national staple.  

The team at Voici Wine Bar & Crêperie explain that a galette is a savoury crêpe made with buckwheat flour (Farine de Sarrasin), whereas sweet crêpes are made using white organic flour!

Sourcing their buckwheat flour from the Moulin de la Fatigue in Brittany France – the birth place of the galette. This flour is milled with a traditional flint millstone, the same process since 1870. So you’re guaranteed a traditional French experience. 

Voici%202/traditionelle.jpg  Voici%202/complete.jpg

Transport yourself to Paris this Bastille Day or any day by visiting this genuine French Crêperie & Wine Bar delivering authenticity in appearance and taste – and for Bastille Day they are offering a complementary glass of Prosecco with each meal. 

Take a trip to the Cote D’Azur with the “De La Mer” galette served with smoked salmon, lemon dill crème fraiche, vegetables and capers.

Screen%20Shot%202019-07-08%20at%2016.18.18.png

Or keep it traditional with “Le Traditionnel” – home cooked Irish ham, melted Irish Cheddar Cheese and either Ballymaloe Relish or Moutarde á l’ancienee (French wholegrain mustard).

Modern variations on the traditional sweet Crêpe include “Crêpe Caramélisée” served with handcrafted Atlantic Sea Salted Caramel Gelato topped with fresh whipped cream, flaked almonds and homemade caramel au beurre salé.

Or to add “wow” factor to your day go for the “Crêpe Suzette” – freshly squeezed orange and lemon, melted butter, sugar and flambéed with Grand Marnier.

Being a fan of Derry Girls is like a rite of passage in Ireland at this point so it’s safe to say we were overjoyed to hear of a Derry Girls QUIZ happening in Dublin next month.

Our competitive nature and obsession with Derry Girls will finally come in handy when Copper Face Jacks hosts the event on August 2.

The Big Fat Derry Girls Quiz will take place in the nightclub from 8pm to 10pm.

Tickets are only a tenner so gather up your fellow Derry Girls fans and get ready to battle it out with the show’s biggest fans.

Organisers of the quiz commented, “Up and down the country the Irish people who have followed Erin and her band of friends as they deal with the troubles of being a teenager throughout the troubles in Northern Ireland. Will Aunt Sarah Make it for her tanning session?

"Get your gal and guy pals together and to make your team of four. Once the victorious team are announced the after party will kick off until the wee hours of the morning. Sure who doesn’t love a night in Coppers."

Two new Amur tiger cubs have been born at Dublin Zoo and our hearts are just melting at the sight of them.

Parents Tundra and Ussuri welcomed their first cubs on October 14.

The female cubs weighed 1.5kg each.

The adorable cubs have yet to be named but the public will be able to visit them at Dublin Zoo from this weekend at 11:15 am to 3 pm.

The siblings are doing “extremely well” and are settling in at their home in Dublin Zoo.

Ciarán McMahon, who is a team leader at Dublin Zoo said: “Tundra is an exceptional first-time mother and she has shown strong maternal instincts from the very beginning.”

"Both cubs are very playful and energetic, just like their mother!” he shared.

“The cubs have fun chasing each other and play-fighting which helps keep their claws sharp, while Tundra makes sure to clean them up straight afterwards, just like any good parent would."

Amur tigers are an endangered species with only approximitely 500 existing in the wild. Dublin Zoo is hoping to improve this by joining an international breeding programme.

Dublin Zoo has invited the public to help name the cubs. You can suggest your names here.

A limited number of exclusive VIP packages will be available. These exclusive offers can include an amazing selection of reserved-seated tickets, custom merchandise (designed exclusively for package purchasers) and much more.

Hugh Jackman has made an impression on audiences of all ages with his multi-hyphenate career persona, as successful on stage in front of live crowds as he is on film. From his award-winning turn on Broadway as the 1970s singer/songwriter Peter Allen to his metal claw-wielding Wolverine in the blockbuster X-Men franchise, Jackman has proven to be one of the most versatile actors of our time.

Jackman garnered his first Academy Award nomination, for Best Actor, for his performance in Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables, based on the popular stage show created from Victor Hugo’s famous novel of the same name.

Jackman’s standout performance as protagonist Jean Valjean also earned him a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical, as well as Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award nominations, for both Best Ensemble and Best Male Actor in a Leading Role, and a BAFTA Award nomination. Most recently, he was nominated for his role as P.T. Barnum in The Greatest Showman.

These dark, gloomy evenings are really draining and we have to admit we never have the energy to go out once we clock off from work.

This winter we’ve been making the most of our book collections and have spent many evenings curled up by the fire with nothing but a good book for company.

The list of benefits associated with reading is never-ending, but our favourite one is simple- the escapism.

Distracting your mind for a few chapters where you can escape to different worlds and meet new people all from the comfort of your sofa is so tranquil.

We decided to support our fellow ladies by putting together a list our favourite books by female authors.

We’re sure you’ll love these books just as much as we do.

1: Ritual for Every Day by Nadia Narain and Katia Narain Phillips (Hutchinson)

We all feel that desire a calmer, more spacious way of living, but we’re often unsure exactly how to step off the crazy treadmill of day-to-day routines and responsibilities. Nadia and Katia have learned through years of practice that simple rituals can help you press the pause button on the pace of modern life. In Rituals for Every Day, they share their easy-to-follow advice, step-by-step. Let the riyals bring you back to yourself.

2: Thanks, Penneys! by Valerie Loftus (Mercier)

Have you ever been in Penneys on a Saturday and felt like you were in a scene from The Hunger Games? Have you ever gone in just to get a pair of tights and come out with fake tan, a pair of glittery platforms and some fluffy pyjamas? Have you ever spent hours there trying to root out a pair of knickers that doesn’t have ‘NETFLIX AND CHILL’ written on the bum? If so, then this is the book for you. From the chaos of changing rooms to the questionable delights of the lingerie section. Thanks, Penneys! is a love letter to an Irish institution that is an integral part of all our lives.

3: The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur (Andrew Mcmeel Publishing)

Rupi Kaur’s second book is divided into five sections reflecting the life cycle of a flower, with chapters titled: Wilting, Falling, Rooting, Rising, and Blooming. It focuses on themes of love and loss, trauma and abuse, healing, femininity and the body. Wilting touches on the subject of heartbreak and loss. Falling focuses on depressive feelings following the loss of an important relationship. Rooting explores topics of female infanticide, immigration and borders. Blooming addresses the joy Kaur finally found coming to love and accept her roots, herself, and the world around her. She also comes to realize her mission in this world: equality and love for all genders, races and backgrounds.

4: I Found My Tribe by Ruth Fitzmaurice (Vintage Publishing)

Ruth's tribe are her lively children and her filmmaker husband, Simon, who has Motor Neurone Disease and can only communicate with his eyes. Ruth's other 'tribe' are the friends who gather at the cove in Greystones, Co. Wicklow, and regularly throw themselves into the freezing cold water, just for kicks. 'The Tragic Wives' Swimming Club', as they jokingly call themselves, meet to cope with the extreme challenges life puts in their way, not to mention the monster waves rolling over the horizon. An invocation to all of us to love as hard as we can, and live even harder, I Found My Tribe is an urgent and uplifting letter to a husband, family, friends, the natural world and the brightness of life.   
 

5: And Life Lights Up by Alice Taylor (O'Brien Press Ltd)

Let Alice Taylor encourage you to live in the now, to really live your experiences and to treasure the special moments in your life. With Alice as a guide, explore the steps and ways to live a conscious life and focus on the goodness of the world around us. Alice's beautiful and captivating writing is an act of mindfulness in itself, and she shares her favourite moments in life, encouraging us to ponder our own. Alice also inspires the reader to be attentive to the here and now and embrace moments as they arise. A beautiful and enchanting book by a bestselling and celebrated author. 

6: Ice Cream for Breakfast by Laura Jane Williams (Hodder and Stoughton)

Full of spirit and un-self-conscious enthusiasm, Ice Cream for Breakfast: Child-Like Solutions to Bullsh*t Adult Problems is the permission slip all too-grown-up-for-their-own-good-but-secretly-scared-of-adulting adults need to locate their inner-child nestled deep within so that we might all relax enough to laugh harder, wonder more, and marvel at magic on the daily.

7: Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg (Edbury Publishing)

In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg – Facebook COO and one of Fortune magazine's Most Powerful Women in Business – draws on her own experience of working in some of the world's most successful businesses and looks at what women can do to help themselves, and make small changes in their life that can effect change on a more universal scale.

8: The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin (Harper Collins Publishers)

The author of the bestselling 40 Ways to Look at Winston Churchill has produced a work that is "a cross between the Dalai Lama's The Art of Happiness and Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love." The Happiness Project describes one person's year-long attempt to discover what leads to true contentment. Drawing at once on cutting-edge science, classical philosophy, and real-world applicability, Rubin has written an engaging, eminently relatable chronicle of transformation.   

9: Normal People by Sally Rooney (Faber and Faber)

Normal People follows the lives of Connell and Marianne, who come from the same town but are part of very different worlds.

When they start studying at Trinity College they develop such a strong bond that carries on into the future. Normal People looks at the hearty theme of how love can change a person. It opens readers’ eyes to the massive impact love and a relationship can have on a person. Plus, can you ever go wrong with a love story set in Dublin? We are so ready to dive into the pages of Sally Rooney’s second fictional triumph.

10: Help Me! by Marianne Power (Pan Macmillan)

Marianne Power spent one year of her life practising the advice from self-help books to see if they really do what they say on the cover. The books promise to make us better people. They vow to transform us into upbeat, organised souls who go for jogs at 7 am in the morning and always have perfectly ironed clothes, but Marianne realises that maybe the help they’re offering isn’t as beneficial as it may seem.

The excitement of this festive season can sometimes overtake the real meaning of Christmas. We can get caught up in shopping for presents and finding the perfect dress for the Christmas party, but at the end of the day, this holiday is all about thinking of those you love.

Christmas can be a very lonely time for many, so SuperValu is set to help address this by supporting ALONE and raising funds to support people who are suffering from loneliness this Christmas.

SuperValu will open its special All Things Considered Christmas Café on 41 South William St for two days from November 23 to 24,  from 10 am to 8 pm.

Bring a friend along who you may not have seen for some time and enjoy some festive treats, choosing from a menu of Christmas favourites from the Specially Sourced wine range, SuperValu Christmas bakery range, sandwiches and Signatures Tastes meats and cheese platters with proceeds from the menu going to ALONE.

In addition, with SuperValu at the heart of 217 communities, this year they are asking their shoppers to Consider Taking Time to Catch up with someone in their community who may be lonely this festive season and drop around to have a chat and cuppa along with a mince pie.

A 0.20c donation from all packs of Signature Taste mince pies will go to ALONE. Retailers around the country will also be hosting local coffee and mince pie mornings and wine and cheese evenings from Friday, November 23 to  Saturday, December 1 to raise further funds and awareness for the charity.
