Robin Wright: amazing in Wonder Woman

Robin Wright: amazing in Wonder Woman

 

WHAT’S HOT 

‘Oh My God What A Complete Aisling’
Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen have adapted their cult Irish Facebook page into a novel, coming in September. 

Token
Fun arcade bar and restaurant in Smithfield, Dublin.

Seven Wood pop-up
Niamh Banks’s lifestyle store on the corner of Dawson Street and Duke Street in Dublin continues until the end of June.

Melodrama
Lorde’s new album. 

Robin Wright
Amazing in Wonder Woman. Spin-off prequel please?

Loud front doors
Cheer your house – and your street – up with a bright lick of paint.

The Keepers
Compelling and terrifying cold case review documentary on Netflix.

WHAT’S NOT

Far away food
Makes you seem fancy, but clearly not too fancy enough to care about the environment. 

HomePod
Pretty hard to find anyone genuinely excited about Apple’s new smart speaker.

Alpha tech culture
As Uber’s meltdown shows, tech bros – and their culture – need to cop on.

Slick houses
Clean lines seem to be over, old school, craft-y and rustic vibes taking over. 

Social media bitching
Being rude and mean online is pretty poor character trait. 

BBQ fast food
We’re getting the wrong end of the BBQ trend with cheap cuts of meat and flavourless sides.

Festival flu
Turns out drinking cider for nine hours straight in a field isn’t good for you.
