Connect Lifestyle-November 2017-Issue 42

Hello and welcome to Connect,

It’s November and I am sure all your little ones are maxed out on sugar from the Halloween festivities. Maybe you have indulged a little yourself. Well no need to worry we have the tips on how to lose a dress size before Christmas.

We also meet 2FM DJ Jenny Greene who is making her way to the INEC this December, she tells us all about her life and what it’s like on the road doing gigs like this.

Paul Galvin launched a fantastic new collection for Dunnes Stores recently so we went along to see what we can expect for the men in our lives this season.

We also took a trip to Castleisland as this is fashion month for them with their amazing night coming up on the 9th so we went along to meet some of the traders to see what they have to offer.

It’s getting cold and it’s time to prepare for winter so we checked out what is available to sort your home for winter. There are lots of great bargains out there at the moment if you need to get a little renovation done or even purchase a new stove, check out Corcorans who have an outstanding collection.

Orla our Fashion editor catches up with the very talented Anne Cantillon Linnane one of the very many talented designers we are blessed to have here in Kerry, and we have lots more on fashion for those choosing the winter wardrobe.

Lots of events happening this month so get yourself along to one, it’s a great way to pass a winters night, Castleisland have an intimate evening of fashion in the lovely surroundings of the Ivy Leaf theatre, Shaws are supporting the Hospice with a night of fashion and of course our very popular Ladies Lunch Fashion and Beauty Afternoon is taking place this month on Sunday 26th, this is always an amazing day out and preparations are well under way so make sure you have your ticket reserved on time.

So as always there is lots to read and lots to check out, the clocks have gone back the nights are getting darker so please stay safe on the roads and don’t forget to check in on that elderly family member or neighbour, this time of year is always harder if you live alone the nights are longer so if you have a few minutes call for that cuppa, it’s a half an hour out of your busy life, to your neighbour or family member it’s a lot more.

See you all in December for our bumper Christmas issue.

Until next month,
Mags x
