Solo Socialises: First Fashion Bloggers’ Brunch of 2010 in Arnotts!

Solo Socialises has been lying low of late, but it came out of hibernation last Saturday in honour of the first Fashion Bloggers’ Brunch of 2010! And my, was it worth it! The host was Arnotts (http://twitter.com/arnottsproject, http://arnotts.ie), who set up a table for us in The Conran Shop, where I’d never been before actually. […]

Solo Socialises: Fashion Bloggers’ Brunch (and more) at Pacino’s

The monthly Fashion Bloggers’ Brunch hit Pacino’s (www.pacinos.ie) on Suffolk Street in Dublin 2 at the weekend, although it was more like breakfast, cocktails and lunch, as oppose to just brunch! Not that anyone was complaining. Quite the opposite in fact. Lots of coffee, eggs benedict and pancakes were followed by a relocation to the […]

Solo Socialises: Bloggers do a late rooftop brunch at Grafton Street’s M&S

The 12th Fashion Bloggers’ Brunch, organised as usual by Solo Style & Beauty editor and fashion writer Annmarie O’Connor (www.iblogfashion.blogspot.com) took place on Saturday, July 25, in the lovely and airy rooftop restaurant in Marks & Spencer on Grafton Street. And it was buzzing with business – even at 3pm, when we took our seats […]

Welcome to June/July’s Solo-magazine!

Issue 9: June/July 2009 Happy summer to one and all. The June/July issue of Solo-magazine is now live with features this month looking at the two notions of a staycation and a selfcession – there’s nothing like a credit crunch for creating a whole new vocabulary. Meanwhile, a new-ish trend would be the hooking up […]

Taxi driver, where are ya going?

Oh dear, I see a taxi drivers’ campaign group was up in arms recently as it wasn’t given advance notice of the recent introduction of new driver skills tests by the Commission for Taxi regulation. Existing drivers will now have to take the revised exam by 2012, while all new entrants to the industry will […]

9 The hook up

Bored with being single? Looking to take a breather while still keeping your independence? Well you might want to investigate the idea of moving someone into your life who you can can hook up with from time to time! Hooking up is such a popular expression now in the US that a book was written […]

Sumptuous Saba

Table For One took in Saba on a sunny summer’s evening and found it to the perfect spot for an early dinner. Now that eating out is supposed to have become more of a treat than a normality, I love going to places that are actually acknowledging the recession. And that’s exactly what Saba on […]

Break ups, breakdowns and break offs

Oh Lord, it’s all about Jordan and Peter Andre these days isn’t it? Who could have possibly predicted the demise of these two?! Well, apparently anyone who was watching their numerous reality TV shows did. Or saw Pete’s exasperated expression during their last public appearance at the Soap Awards. In any case, within a day […]

Host a recession BBQ!

It was last July when Solo Stays In featured a guide to throwing a recession party, and at the time it was all a bit tongue in cheek. Recession, what recession, we wondered as it still felt like something of an idle threat. Not so now, of course. By the end of 2009 the you […]
