Before we were lovers I swear we were friends

Afie Jurvanen (born April 28, 1981), known by his stage name Bahamas, is a Canadian folk musician. Lost in the Light is from his second album Barchords in 2012. Enjoy!

Remember to say thank you to your Mum today and give her a really big hug. Happy Mother’s Day.

Max Zoghbi, filmmaker, made this beautiful short film entitled Wildflower to propose to his girlfriend Bonnie Kate. Bonnie Kate was one of the victims of the Aurora, Colorado Batman shootings in 2012.

Max says, “Much like a wildflower, she is the strongest and bravest person I know with unmatched, unintentional beauty and fragility both inside and out. Choosing to grow and persevere even in the harshest of seasons and circumstances Bonnie Kate shines brightly through the darkness and chooses to accept joy every step of the long, painful and seemingly endless way.”

It is a beautiful story of how love wins out.

The only bed worth sleeping’s the one right next to you.

Love this tune by American Progressive Pop band from L.A. Saint Motel. It’s fierce catchy. Enjoy!

weighing in
There is nothing better than taking a mid-week day off and a lunchtime trip to the theatre. Bewleys Café Theatre are currently showing ‘Weighing In’, a fast-paced comedy about life, love and dieting – and how we just need to adjust the scales to find the right balance. It was laugh-out-loud funny and the perfect lunchtime treat.

Starring the perfect team of Isabel Mahon as the uptight, diet-obsessed posh newcomer Pam McGowan and Rose Henderson as the fun-loving, easy-going family woman Breda. After one Easi-Slim meeting the two women strike up an unlikely friendship with Pam encouraging Breda on her quest to shed those stubborn pounds. It is Pam’s enthusiastic energy and obsession with calories that creates the most laughs. The only thing I found a little distracting was the annoying chatter when Rosaleen Linehan voiced the Diet Leader. As their friendship grows and Breda starts to lose the weight, it becomes clear that beneath Pam’s slim exterior lies an insecure woman whose life isn’t as perfect as she makes it out to be. The play doesn’t take itself too seriously and the script is well-written. It is on till January 24th and definitely worth a look.

The sad news of Bewleys refurbishment hit the papers lately but be glad in the knowledge that Powerscourt are hosting Bewleys Café Theatre in the interim so lunchtime theatre lives on.

Can’t find paradise on the ground

Beautiful atmospheric track from Oh Wonder, a London-based writing duo are releasing one new song every month followed by their debut album coming in September. Enjoy!
