Need Inspiration for this Weekend? Here are my Top Picks as Seen in The Dubliner Magazine!

Starbucks Christmas Cups

Mmm I just love to cup something warm and slurp on its hot ‘n’ frothy liquid on these cold dark November evenings. Yes, Starbucks has launched its festive faves once more in those cheery red cups! Get thee to your nearest branch for a nutmeg-spiced Gingerbread Latte or the strangely delicious Eggnog version.

I have some wonderful childhood memories of playing in The People’s Park in Dun Laoghaire. The family theme continues this weekend with The Dun Laoghaire Lights Festival, beginning in the park with an exciting parade and fireworks display to officially switch on the magical Christmas lights. Wrap up warm for a bright and beautiful evening out with your little elves.

Need gift inspiration for the ladies in your life? I fully recommend the new book by top style guru Lisa Fitzpatrick, ‘Enjoying Fashion and Style’. Filled with great tips, and Lisa’s infectious positivity, it’s a must-have for every fashion-conscious filly. But boys, don’t complain when you’re shown up by your immaculately dressed other half!

From their humble origin as a school choir, The Dublin Gospel Choir has grown to achieve fame and huge popularity, even playing alongside Rod Stewart, Damien Rice and on the stage at Electric Picnic. Experience their great talent for yourself this weekend at their performance in The Button Factory, Temple Bar. Oh Happy Days!

The funky and fashionable exterior of The Farm Organic Restaurant brightens up Dawson Street, but it’s the tasty grub that really brings out my inner piglet. A great range of choices available for both meat-lovers and veggies, try the two-course early-bird menu for under €20. Amazing value. Oink!
