I'm a bit of a vintage queen, I love finding a piece of clothing that has a story behind it that you'll just never find out about, but you can just imagine. How many people have worn this? what did they do? who were they? Cool to think about, huh? I decided to visit Dublin Vintage Factory and put together an outfit. I actually really liked it but nothing seemed to really

Ever felt like you could eat 5 chicken fillet rolls in a row on a Sunday morning? Well The Shamrock Lodge in Finglas will oblige, for free, on the condition that you finish it in 15 minutes and with NO DRINK to wash it down. Fail to complete it and it will cost you €20. We had to give this beast a shot...

He's the man behind the mural that got everyone talking during this year's Yes Equality campaign. And now, Joe Caslin – a teacher by trade – spends his time developing pieces of art that help young people in Ireland to be inspired by their everyday surroundings. We caught up with him and spoke to him about how he came to discover his talent, how his parents nurtured it in him, and what keeps him so passionate about what he does.

I am obsessed with eyeliner. Anyone who knows me knows I wont leave the house without it, in fact most of my friends haven't ever seen me without it. I adore trying out those wacky inventions that appear on the shelves in Penneys, that you might not usually actually end up buying but think about every now and then " DOES IT REALLY WORK?" Well, I'm here to answer your prayers. In this case, it was a firm no. Have you tried it?

Here are some of the burgers on offer

Meltdown is Dublin's newest communal pop-up that serves melted cheese madness, artisan coffee and wine. They take the wonderful Irish delicacy, that is the cheese toasty, to a whole new level with a range of drool-worthy flavours. There are five decadent sandwiches on offer at the moment, each one cheesier than the last. They even serve a pulled pork toasty loaded with mac'n'cheese, omg. This tasty number is the Spicy Cajun Chicken, made from sourdough, cheddar, cajun mayo, cajun chicken and jalapeno peppers.

Bubble Waffles have hit Dublin and they are so pretty we almost felt guilty eating them. You can choose whichever toppings, sauces and ice cream flavours you want to indulge in. Originating in Hong Kong, the bubble waffle can best be described as something between a waffle and an ice cream cone. They're filled with fruit, sauces, ice cream and various toppings that blend perfectly with the chewy texture of the bubble waffle.

I spend most of my day looking at a screen and recently I've been getting headaches, migraines and I've had trouble sleeping. A friend suggested to me to purchase a pair of screen glasses to combat the issue. At that point, I had no idea such a thing even existed. That's when I came across Irish company Ambr Eyewear.

Dublin BBQ joint Pitt Bros has added another string to its fairly delicious bow with the addition of its Dirty Menu – which, because it's so filthy it should be illegal, you have to ask the wait staff for in stage whispers. Okay, fine, you can ask without whispering, but it's an insiders-only type of job, so they're not shouting about it from the rooftops. Here's the lowdown: https://lovindublin.com/food/say-hello-to-pitt-bros-dirty-secret-and-prepare-to-salivate

Laser is being talked about quite a bit lately and as someone who really doesn't like body hair, I said I would give it a go. I headed to Sensius in the Ilac Shopping Centre to try it out.
