Ryanair just launched a huge sale on Easter flights


And we’re here for it.

Ryanair has launched an unmissable Easter sale on flights – just in case you fancy booking a last minute getaway this four-day weekend.

Whether the travel plans in question feature a Game of Thrones medieval Air BnB or eco bamboo homes across the pond, Ryanair has got us covered.

The airline has slashed the prices of 500,000 seats by up to 20 per cent, and the sale is tempting us to book, book, book.

However, there is a catch.

The tickets are for one way travels – something that could prove problematic, but on the flip-side you could just choose to island hop, especially if you are planning on doing some interrailing. Or just book a separate cheap and cheerful return flight.  Simple.

Jetsetters can get their #wanderlust on with a mini break to Belgium or the Netherlands for €14.99, a city break to Scotland’s capital Edinburgh for €17.99 one way, or even Bologna, Amsterdam and Paris for just €19.99.

While others may prefer a city break slightly further afield will go head over heels for a boujee beachside break to Biarritz for €22.98, or splash out a bit more on a trip to Spanish hotspots Barcelona and Madrid for €24.99.

Ears pricked up yet? We thought so.

Marrakesh has become hugely popular, so why not jump on a plane for €28.99 single flight, and you’ll be there in just a few hours browsing through all the goodies in the Medina.

For those looking for a super chilled getaway doing nothing but sitting by the pool, or pitching up at the beach with a good book and G&T in hand venture to Ibiza, Malta or Paphos for under €35 for a one way flight – you may love it so much you will never want to return and go all ‘Shirley Valentine’ on us.

There is also another catch though, as these flights are only available from a handful of Ireland airports, Dublin, Knock, Kerry, Shannon and Cork.

The flights are available now if you book to travel up until March 2020.

Happy booking.

The 4 Facebook Watch shows that need to be on your radar this Easter weekend

The 4 Facebook Watch shows that need to be on your radar this Easter weekend


Words by Maisie Bovingdon

Easter is fast approaching, and while some may simply be indulging in chocolate eggs after chocolate eggs after chocolate eggs for the four-day weekend, others may be taking a road trip, or weekend away, to visit the in laws or just jetting away for a change of scene.

Whether you need to line up a series of shows while you put your feet up and gorge on the sweet treats so you don’t have to move a muscle for the full 96 hours, or a playlist to while away the hours on your journey, we have you covered.

From teen dramas to talk shows, gripping adventure shows to tear jerkers, here are four must-sees, exclusive on Facebook Watch this weekend.

engagement

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith got married in 1997. The marriage was Will’s second

Will Smith’s Bucket List

We all have a soft spot for Will, from his early Fresh Prince days to Suicide Squad, and we STILL know every lyric to his track ‘Switch’, but now we can see Will in a whole new light.

The actor has a long bucket list, and this series follows him ticking off his challenges – it’s a must watch for those who love Will, get a kick out of adventure, or wants some inspiration for their own bucket list.

From filming a Bollywood movie, to skydiving in Dubai, racing Lewis Hamilton on the track, as he travels across the globe.

If that wasn’t enough he is joined by his uber talented family in the six-part series.

SKAMAustin

This American teen drama explores all the trials and tribulations of a group of youngsters, from school life, to young love and what they do in their free time.

The series – inspired by the Norwegian version Skam – offers a realistic and unfiltered look at what teenagers get up to and it’s been a huge hit ever since its debut in 2018.

Season two has just dropped with eight episodes in it so far, but start from season one with a full 10 episodes to get your teeth into.

Red Table Talk

The one with Jordyn Woods right? You got it!

Jada Pinkett Smith has rounded up three generations – her mum Adrienne, and daughter Willow – for her reality show, and the trio are often joined by celebrity guests.

The family and their guests open up about various topics on the show; from R Kelly’s victims to family friend Jordyn who candidly discussed THAT Tristan Thompson scandal and sought advice from Jada.

There are over 24 hours worth of shows to watch, with even more coming next month, so even if you’re venturing further afield this Easter this will be your saviour.

Sorry for Your Loss

Sometimes all we want is a good cry, and this series will provide exactly that.

This programme, starring Elizabeth Olsen, follows a young widow trying to cope after the sudden death of her husband.

While it is heartbreaking and tear-jerking, and gives us all the feels, watching her journey is cathartic and quite educational.

The countdown is on!

Puppy yoga is a thing and we are 100% here for it

Puppy yoga has launched and we are falling head over heels for the sport.

Yes, The Hive has created a new innovative way of working out and it involves two of our favourite things: yoga and puppies – what more could you want?

The session is like no other – while a certified teacher takes you through the motions for 45 mins you’ll be joined by a room filled with four legged friends to show you how to perfect that downward dog.

The furry friends will roam around the room so they learn how to socialise, while you get the benefits of working out or playing with the pups, which also help people to de-stress.

While some puppies will playfully jump around and try to get involved with the exercise, others just want a simple cuddle or will quite happily sit on you and nap.

The site reads: ‘We work with breeders to give the pups the opportunity to learn how to socialise before they go to their new homes.  All the puppies are healthy, up to date on their shots, dewormed and vet checked and ready to cuddle.’

The only thing you need to bring is your yoga mat.

However, puppy yoga is only available across four locations in America; Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal and Mississigua, and ranges from $29.99 to $39.99, depending on the location.

Let’s hope it makes its way to the UK ASAP!

Why you need to get yourself to Milan, pronto! Welcome to Milan Design Week….

Why you need to get yourself to Milan, pronto! Welcome to Milan Design Week….


salone del mobile 2019
Dolce & Gabbana – Armani/Casa – Versace

It’s Milan Design Week, also known as Salone del Mobile, and that means our favourite Italian city is currently flooded with interior enthusiasts. The annual furniture fair in Milan originally exhibited Italian designs only, but thanks to its immense success (last year, there were just under 450,000 visitors) the Salone is now one of the biggest events in the world for the furnishing and design sector.

Every year when the city is buzzing with design fans, big Italian fashion brands pull out all the stops for their clientele too. Presenting the latest products, collaborations and installations (with an artsy edge, of course), these pop-up events and collections are yet another reason for booking a trip to Milan. And to save you some time, we’ve already rounded up our favourite fashion installations…

Marni

Introducing Marni Moon Walk, the brand has created a series of designer objects with an extra-terrestrial theme. Furniture-wise, we’re talking spaceship-like coffee tables, tribal alien sculptures and stools in the shape of animals – all made from metal sheet and hand painted. This year’s edition also sees the presentation of colour PVC and metal accessories in the form of petite sofas, rocking chairs and chaise longues, as well as colourful cushions, wool and natural fibre rugs.

Dolce & Gabbana

After the huge successes of their previous collaborations on hand-painted appliances, Dolce & Gabbana and kitchen-favourite Smeg are once again joining forces on a lifestyle project. Inspired by the traditional Sicilian cart (think prominent shades of red and yellow, as well as bright blues and greens), their lavishly decorated designs include an incredible stand mixer and coffee maker that you’ll definitely want to get your hands on.

Loewe

Focussing their fifth project for the Salone del Mobile on the art of weaving and basketry, Loewe asked eight artists from around the world to create a collection of traditional baskets with a contemporary twist. The result is a beautifully crafted range of leather bags (including their iconic Puzzle and Gate bag) that are both decorative and practical, as well as a limited line of bamboo-like bangles crafted from copper.

Etro

Etro is unveiling their new home collection at Milan Design Week. Influenced by nomadism and mythology, the Italian fashion house known for its use of bold prints and colours has created a line of soft furnishings, robes and ceramics. If you’re looking to zhoosh up your décor, these conversation-starting pieces (we’re talking parrot-shaped lamp bases, candle holders with Bengal tigers and throw pillows with mythical embroidery) will do the trick.

Armani

Armani/Casa is giving its flagship store (the biggest one in the world) at Corso Venezia in Milan a major revamp – updating all four floors with the newest bathroom, living room and kitchen collections, draperies and wall coverings. For the latter, Armani/Casa has partnered up with wallpaper brand Jannelli&Volpi on an eye-catching collection of prints with trompe-l’oeil imagery such as the macro-scaled Italian island of Pantelleria, as well as some of Armani’s more iconic patterns.

Versace

For their latest home collection, launching at the Salone this week, Versace has collaborated with interior designer Sasha Bikoff and artist Andy Dixon on a line of furnishings inspired by the brand’s 90s fashion advertising campaigns. From sculptural Medusa chairs in bright neon colours to opulent coffee and tea sets in their signature baroque motif, the collaboration is over the top – not that we’d expect anything less from the Italian fashion house.

The Salone Internazionale del Mobile runs until April 14

Four ways to connect with your loved ones this Mother’s Day

Four ways to connect with your loved ones this Mother’s Day


Promotional feature with BOSS The Scent

Time is precious, so here’s how to make the most of yours (and your mum’s)…

In today’s hectic modern world, our free time is valuable and days spent seeing your loved ones can be few and far between. That’s why it’s important to disconnect to reconnect, spend your time doing things and making memories that’ll last; not living life behind a phone screen.

Here are four ways you can get the most out of your quality time with mum this Mother’s Day…

Head for the great outdoors

Our most precious memories are often tied to the place in which we made them. Plan a family day out and about to a location of your mum’s choice – a trip to the beach, a National Trust visit, sightseeing – and enjoy a day spent in each other’s company.

Treat her to a gift she won’t be expecting

If you usually surprise your mum with jewellery, switch up your go-to gift for a new perfume she’ll love. BOSS The Scent for her is an addictive mix of roasted cocoa, sweet peach and freesia – and every time she wears it, she’ll think of you.

See a musical

Musicals and concerts are great ways to spend time together, but music goes beyond being purely entertaining. A 2018 study found that music induces positive emotional reactions through memory, but not negative ones. So you can bet that Wicked number will always lift both your mood and your mum’s.

Take a trip down memory lane

Of course, there’s a lot of happiness to be found in reminiscing about the past with your loved ones, too. Leave your phone in another room and spend some time digging out old photo albums and memory books, sharing stories and laughter. You’ll definitely feel closer to your family afterwards.

Try any of the above and we guarantee you’ll bring a smile to the faces of your loved ones this Mother’s Day.

Excited? Same.

Forget London Fashion Week – London Dog Week is now a thing and we couldn’t be more excited.

Whether you own a pet pooch or dream about the day when you do, this is a week you won’t want to miss. Make some space on your phone because your camera roll is about to become a stream of nothing but adorable delfies.

From Monday 25th March until Sunday 31st March dogs will be taking over the capital as part of London Dog Week. There will be a range of activities and pop ups for you to get involved in, from fashion shows, grooming spas, competitions, office dog treat boxes, doggy dinner parties, the cuddle club and charity night walks.

London Dog Week co-founder, Lois Mallet Walker, told Pretty52: ‘A week after my mum passed, I bought my tiny poochon puppy, Pedro and it was love at first sight. He helped bring happiness back into my life and I truly discovered that unconditional love that dogs bring.

‘I know both myself and [co-founder] Aneka have both gone through mental and physical health challenges and our dogs have really helped us through it.’

Aneka also told the site: ‘London is viewed as one of the loneliest cities in the world, yet dogs are natural people magnets and if we can use their ability to connect people across the capital, then we think it’s a great way for people to forge friendships. I really believe that dogs are instrumental in making London less lonely.’

We’re so there.

international women's day events london

Needless to say, one of the biggest days of the year is 8th March, AKA International Women’s Day.

This year’s theme is #BalanceForBetter, with the aim of building a gender-balanced world through collaboration.

As well as celebrating our own incredible Marie Claire International Women’s Day event, in association with the United Nations and Salesforce, we’ve compiled a list of the events that we cannot wait for… see you there!

Career lessons from three female pioneers of unconvention

Career lessons from three female pioneers of unconvention


Sometimes the road to career success isn’t always a smooth one. But, as these three trailblazers prove, you can still achieve your dreams

career lessons

These three female pioneers of unconvention prove that the road to success isn’t always a smooth one…

Ava DuVernay, 46, film director

‘If you’re on a path that’s not the one that you want to be on, you can pivot, and you can also move, and age doesn’t make a difference, [nor does] race, gender.’

The Oscar-nominated director of Selma and A Wrinkle In Time – for which she was the 
first African-American woman to direct a film with a budget over $100 million – Ava Duvernay started out interning as a news journalist. She moved into PR, founding her own agency in 1999. It was at the age of 32 that she picked up a camera and started taking directing classes.

Angela Ahrendts, 58, senior VP of retail at Apple

‘At some point in your career, maybe you too have made the life-altering decision to start anew. If so, you know first-hand how exciting, challenging, and sometimes disorienting the first 30, 60, 90 days can be.’

Apple’s senior vice president of retail (and the brand’s highest paid executive), Angela Ahrendts started her career in fashion. From a merchandising role at a lingerie company, she moved to Donna Karan, Liz Claiborne and, most famously, was CEO of Burberry from 2006-2014, where her leadership escalated the firm’s value from £2 billion to over £7 billion.

Whitney Wolfe Herd, 29, founder of Bumble

‘Often, the best jobs come out of just meeting people and letting one thing lead 
to another.’

After a degree in international studies, Wolfe Herd turned down ‘safe’ corporate job offers for a role at a tech incubator funded to make apps. There, she co-founded Tinder, but left in 2014 following sexual-harassment claims. Despite vowing never to go back into online dating, she came up with the idea for female-focused dating app Bumble, which Forbes values at over $1 billion.
