Funkshot Masquerade Halloween Party

FunkShot - The Hellfire Club – Halloween Party 26th October 2013

On Saturday 26th October, Funkshot are hosting a Masquerade Halloween Party at The Lost Society, Powerscourt Town House, South William Street, Dublin.

Admission is Free – but only those in masquerade or fancy dress will get in!

The theme of the party is ‘The Hell Fire Club’ named after the infamous club of the same name, which was active in the years 1735 to 1741. The club was founded in 1737 by Richard Parsons, 1st Earl of Rosse.

The club quickly developed a reputation for hard drinking, excess and debauchery!

Originally, the club was based at the Eagle Tavern near Dublin Castle but migrated on occasion to Montpelier Hill in the Dublin Mountains, where the ruins of the Hellfire Club can be seen to this day.

More than a few legends have grown up around The Hellfire Club, including the appearance of the devil at one of their notorious drinking sessions… who knows, he might make a reappearance……..?

Blueface SumUp partnership

Dear All,

I like to invite you to the launch event of the Blueface SumUp partnership on Thursday the 19th of September at 6pm in House Dublin, 26/27 Lower Leeson Street, Dublin 2. I have been working with Blueface and SumUp on this product and its a great innovation that allows you to turn your phone into a card terminal. Simple, secure and cost-effective. Why pay for an expensive credit card terminal when you simply use your smart phone or tablet? Works on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices. The mobile card reader connects via your audio jack. Great for any business or sole trader. Perfect for models, photographers and MUA to be able to accept payments on the go. No more I don’t have any cash on me excuses when it comes to getting paid. 🙂

Join us for some networking over canapés and wine in the comfortable surrounds of House Dublin. In attendance will be business owners, media and other business professionals.

To register for the event and for more details please go here:

In Thai “Koh” means “Island” and some of the world’s finest coconuts come from the islands of Southern Thailand, world famous for their pristine conditions. KOH COCONUT Brand 100% All Natural Coconut Water is made from Coconuts grown in that beautiful country. And, not only is Thailand famous for growing the sweetest coconuts on Earth but the coconut also plays a deep and integral part in Siamese culture and cuisine.

KOH COCONUT Brand Coconut Water is one of the healthiest, most delicious, refreshing, All Natural Beverages you and your family can enjoy on a daily basis. Naturally rich in electrolytes and potassium, KOH COCONUT Brand Coconut Water is in an excellent source of energy and fluid replenishment. Truly nature’s isotonic, KOH COCONUT Brand Coconut Water is especially beneficial just prior to or after a physical work out.

Koh Coconut… A simple beverage for a complicated world


  • Water from young, immature coconuts offers a long and growing list of health benefits, distinct from the benefits of its counterpart, coconut oil
  • Coconut water is a powerhouse of natural electrolytes, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids, enzymes, antioxidants and phytonutrients, and is low in sugar, but pleasantly sweet
  • It’s great for post-exercise rehydration, but also has anti-inflammatory properties, protects your heart and urinary tract, is a digestive tonic, improves your skin and eyes, supports good immune function, and can even help balance your blood glucose and insulin levels
  • Coconut water is the richest dietary source of cytokinins, plant hormones that have anti-cancer, anti-aging, and anti-thrombolytic benefits in humans
  • Because coconut water is isotonic and sterile (upon coming out of the coconut), it is very similar to blood plasma and has been used intravenously in emergency situations for more than 60 years

The health benefits of coconut water are widely accepted. 100% natural coconut water is recognised by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as a natural isotonic juice and a natural source of essential electrolytes. The “water or fluid of life” which has a similar chemical makeup to human blood plasma naturally provides effective hydration and mineral replenishment for aiding bodily and muscular functions.

Red Bull Gives You Wings

Unforgettable Image of Felix Baumgartn standing on the edge of the space!

Taking Felix Baumgartner up to 127,000 feet height above the Earth is a special balloon called the Red Bull Stratos, which has been specially created to hold a colossal 30 million cubic foot (843,497 cubic meters) of helium gas.

As you can see in the image below the balloon is absolutely gigantic in size and is the biggest balloon ever made measuring 102.05 m tall approximately 335 feet. Equivalent to a 55 story building, or higher than the Statue of Liberty to put it in perspective.

Love the new Louis Vuitton pieces and all the passion and femininity that Marc Jacobs has brought to the house.


A dream. An icon. The essence of elegance. A Louis Vuitton piece is not just a product; it is the embodiment of incomparable savoir-faire and refined quality. Each travel item showcases the brand’s signature style and bears witness to the French lifestyle.
