Big-hearted ladies show they just love their style

MARIA HERLIHY

THERE were welcoming cups of tea as well as plenty of make-up and hair tips which kept all the ladies in top form at the Style House in Tower, and all for a hearty cause.

Not only was there the waft of tea but there was bubbly champagne for guests. The in-house charity fundraiser was all in aid of The Irish Heart foundation.

The 'Love Your Style,' charity night was hosted by the proprietor of the Style House, Edel Lyons, along with her loyal team, who made sure everyone was made feel very welcome and, of course, pampered.

A speaker from The Irish Heart Foundation also gave a healthy heart talk.

Edel and her glamorous team at the Style House dished out some excellent hair and style tips for 2014, along with one-to-one colour consultations, plus hair and scalp analysis to help their guests plan the ultimate glossy tresses for spring.

In addition, the Style House make-up expert also gave advice on colouring and how to accentuate a woman's best features and what make up looks best to complement hairstyles.

Of course, the pampering evening would not have been complete without a glass of bubbly, giggles and a fantastic goodie bag and an individual red rose.

And the Irish Heart Foundation had plenty to smile about, too, as everyone gave very generously on the evening and it was hailed a fantastic success.

It has been an annual event since 1985 and should be embraced and celebrated with gusto in my opinion. Where the National tree week really becomes valuable is in schools where the education of the young in tree importance will hopefully produce a generation of responsible environmentally aware adults in the future.

Getting creative about a better quality of life 

Conor Nelligan, County Heritage Officer The Centenary Commemoration of 1916 was a tremendous success in the County of Cork, as it was across the entire nation. In response to the heightened sense of shared identity that was established in 2016, and in respect of the breadth of cultural activity and public engagement that took place, the Government has embarked on an insightful legacy project that sets out to harness the country's culture, arts and heritage over the next five years with the purpose of...

Do animals feel grief after suffering loss of someone 

Peter Wedderburn - Animal Doctor Both of my parents have passed away in the last year: they were both elderly, and had enjoyed long and fruitful lives, so there was much to be thankful for. The experience of losing them has taught me a direct personal lesson about grief. This must be one of the deepest emotions felt by humans, and I am often asked if animals experience the same feeling when they lose a close friend, whether a human owner or a fellow animal companion.
