Jameson Dublin Film Festival 2015: What's On?


Every year, the Jameson International Film Festival (JDIFF) boasts an impressive variety of films, special guests and documentaries from around the world. The 2015 festival has shaped up to be no different with a wide array of special guests and over 130 films being shown over eleven days from the 19th March. 
Established in 2003 by  journalist Michael Dwyer and film producer McLoughlin, the festival takes place in a variety of cinemas across the centre of Dublin. The festival prides itself on creating a unique platform for the public to engage directly with leading members of the film industry from all over the world. 
Despite being four days into the festival, there is still loads to see. We have compiled a list of our top picks for the remainder of the festival.

Long Lasting Nail Polishes

 
A couple of months ago, one of my friends commented that she hated when her nails were either un painted or chipped. Her main woe in this regard was that she could not find a nail polish that actually lasted more than a day or two. 

Since then I realised I face the same problem but instead of doing my research I resigned to not painting my nails at all unless on a special occasion. Realising that I too appreciate the satisfaction of a freshly painted nail on a regular basis, I tested out a number of different polishes 'claiming' longevity. These bad boys were the one that came out on top.

Photo Diary: Sunday Strolls


So we often go for family Sunday walks to the beach in Howth and Malahide. My Dad and I regularly use them as photography workshops so I thought I would compile a comprehensive list of some of the prettiest snaps. Enjoy.

How to be Facebook Famous: Interview with Vlogger Dano McCormack



Dano McCormack is running ten minutes late. He had to pick his sister up from school, drop her home and then dash around the corner to meet me.

Despite his follower count and his college degree in health and fitness, Dano looks thirteen years old at a push. He slinks into the lobby with his head down, the ends of his grey tracksuit bottoms soaked through from the rain and feebly shakes my hand.

In the age of smart phones and social media, the idea of celebrity is becoming increasing blurred. Social media is creating its own breed of celebrity. Get a couple of thousand likes on Instagram and suddenly you are considered to be ‘insta-famous’; become a successful fashion blogger and you could find yourself front row at Fashion Week. Or, in the case of this 19 year old video blogger from Portlaoise, you can become an overnight Facebook sensation.
