Weekend Roundup – 10 Things Her.ie Loved This Week
These are a few of our favourite things… for this week at least.
Blame It On George
Ahead of his Longitude set last Friday, we had the pleasure of meeting the lovely George Ezra in The Vintage Room at Dublin's Workman's Club. This weekend Ezra kicks off the Her.ie and JOE.ie Sunday Sessions with an exclusive acoustic performance of his upcoming single 'Blame It One Me' and sat down for a chat with our gal Grace - she claims they're new BFFs, but we don't believe her.
Everything is Awesome
As everyone probably knows at this stage, one of Sue's favourite movies from this year was the Lego Movie and with the dvd release this week, Warner Brothers were kind enough to send her a copy of the film. She's going to watch it on repeat all weekend.
Elephants are Michelle's happy place. See last week's roundup for details. This week, her pals at Dublin Zoo welcomed a new baby elephant! To celebrate the arrival of the calf, they sent Michelle this little guy, who Michelle and Rebecca named Herbert. Herbert is the new office mascot.
Better Than a Cherry on Top!
Liz believes every girl needs a getaway in the city. That quiet place to have a drink and a real catch-up with friends. Throw in a cocktail, and it's basically an exercise in therapy. So when her friend Ciara introduced her to Peruke & Periwig on Dawson Street, she was an instant fan.
Rosebuds to top your cocktail? That's swanky without the hefty price tag. She's in love.
Lets just say this was played more than once in Her.ie Towers this week. Did it just get a little hotter in here?
Rebecca headed along to see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes this week and thought it was brilliant. As a fan of the first film, she knew she was going to enjoy it but she just thought everything (the special effects, the story and the music) was done really well. In fact, she's talking of going to see it again.
As a self confessed style obsessive, Saint Laurent is up there as one of Cathy's favourite designers. It stands to reason then that she has a lot of love for Yves Saint Laurent make-up collections too. The luxury make-up brand has recently launched the Black Fetish collection and Cathy is currently crushing on Cara Delevingne who is fronting the sultry and sophisticated campaign. Leather love!
Sunshine on the Strand
Liz was so excited to welcome her sister and baby niece home this week. With the sun shining and a picnic packed, she took a day trip out to Portmarnock beach. If you've never made it to the Dublin sun spot, you're missing out. They took off early in the day to avoid the crowds, giving Saoirse a chance to dip her tiny toes into the Irish sea. The best way to start any summer holiday…
Relight My Fire
Sue went to her first festival last weekend, Longitude and was pretty delighted with the TXFM tent. Apparently, they played Relight My Fire and the place went bananas. She was a broken woman on Monday morning.
Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me
Well we could hardly let a week like this go by without mentioning the weather. As much as we love each other, every member of Team Her.ie has been out the door this week about three seconds after their shift ended. This is one spectacular country in the sunshine. Michelle snapped this on Bull Island during the week, just as the sun said goodbye for another night.
