September is in full swing!
We’re cosied up in front of the fire, we’re drinking our Pumpkin Spiced Lattés, and we’re wearing a lot of layers.
We mean, what’s not to love about autumn?!
Here’s what team VIP is loving this week…
Digital Editor Bronwyn is loving…Aoife Mc Namara Pop-Up

I am so in love with Aoife McNamara’s designs.
Getting to see them in real life is such a treat! While she has her Aoife cottage in Adare, it’s rare that I’m down that end of the country. So getting to pop into her pop-up shop in Chupi at Powerscourt Townhouse in the heart of Dublin was such a treat.
The pop-up will be open until the 24th of September, so if you want to head in we recommend you go ASAP!
I’m still dreaming about her gorgeous blue daisy corset!
Commercial & Events Director Rebecca is loving…Domino’s latest addition
Who doesn’t love a Domino’s?
I was so delighted to find out that they have unveiled three new products!
The Ultimate Spicy Meatball pizza, topped with Jalapeño’s and a Spicy Siracha drizzle, crispy Fries and Chocolate Cinnamon Twisted Dough Balls. The perfect weekend treat, in my opinion!
And I’ll be making the most of it as The Ultimate Spicy Meatball pizza and Chocolate Cinnamon Twisted Dough Balls will be available for a limited time only. You can try them out until the 1st of January.
Weekend Editor Sláine is loving…The Lovers
I didn’t really know what to expect when I started watching The Lovers. It was sold as a show about a big-time TV presenter falling for a supermarket clerk, which I wasn’t fully invested in.
But after binge-watching the entire series I was pleasantly suprised. Yes, the premise is accurate, but its much more than that.
With a tongue-in-cheek view on modern fame, great humour, and a bizarre affair storyline, I was hooked. Best of all, it is set in Belfast. So definitely worth a watch if you get a chance!
Staff Writer Anja is loving…Champagne and Oysters!
Well, that’s a sentence I never thought I’d write. This week I was invited to a one-off Champagne and Oyster Supper Club at the Conrad’s destination restaurant, The Coburg, and OH MY GOD was it amazing. For someone who had never tried oysters before, I now understand the hype.
The night itself included a fabulous four-course dinner menu curated by Executive Head Chef Marek Sulg, with each course complemented by Champagnes specially selected from the Henriot catalogue. Starting the evening off strong, we were greeted with an oyster amuse-bouche, paired with Henriot Brut Souverain, shortly followed by a light dish of goats cheese and beetroot, served with a delicious glass of Henriot Rosé. For the main course, we were treated to a flavoursome Halibut in a Champagne and oyster sauce, paired with an aromatic Henriot Millesime. Then to conclude we were served a delicious apple tart complete with a glass of lively Henriot Blanc de Blanc.
Safe to say, going forward I don’t think any meal will ever live up to that one! For more information on The Coburg’s Supper Club, check out conraddublinrestaurants.com
