There are only 8 shopping days to Christmas and if you’re still looking for presents then you’re a braver person than me! You might be able to guess that I’m one of those organised people that buys early and squirrels them away – mainly so that I can have a few festive tipples and not have to battle my way through hordes of frantic shoppers.

G Spots! The ReFitz Revolution

With new hotels popping up all over Belfast there’s more choice than ever for us consumers. However, one of the most popular hotspots in the city, The Fitzwilliam Hotel seems to be on a roll of late with an amazing 5-star make-over to complement its newly acquired 5-star industry accreditation.

G Spots! Dirty Dancing Turns 30

There are few films from the ’80s more beloved by fans than Dirty Dancing. It provided a career defining role for Jennifer Grey and the hip-swinging suave Patrick Swayze as the dance instructor Johnny for whom she falls for. It’s made a comeback in its 30th year with a Dirty Dancing musical touring the country, films being shown on the big screen and even the characters making an appearance on the red carpet at last night’s NTA Awards….  Ok it might have been Keith Lemon and Paddy McGuinness dressed in the iconic outfits – but it was still screen gold nonetheless.
