Something Extra: Cure Acne in 7 Days

For our “Something Extra” post this week, we stumbled upon this from Adjustable Beds… Cure Acne in 7 days? Worth a try that!

It’s an independent study on how how good sleep can have an effect on clearer skin. The video follows a girl called Dorothy who documents her week of better sleep, getting 8 hours a night (sounds good to us) and whether her skin is clearing up over the days.

Her skin is looking a fairly better at the end of it, so we’re gonna give it a try too, jumping at the chance of more sleep 😉 let us know if you’re up for it!

Let’s Type About Sex

Getting Advice Online

We’ve come across this campaign from Lloyds Online Doctor where they’ve found out 68% of us under 24 in Ireland would prefer to receive contraception online.

This has got us thinking… would you prefer this or going to the doctor? It can be pretty nerve-wracking making that trip, but you do feel like the info given is correct, whereas info online anyone can write…right?

Following on from the success of their ‘Sex Degrees of Separation’ campaign, LloydsOnlineDoctor recently conducted a ‘Let’s Type About Sex’ survey, questioning 474 Irish men and women about their sexual health preferences.

Along with the stat above, 12% of parents said they’re undecided about chatting to us about it, have you had “the conversation” with them?

Our Top 4 Colin Farrell Movies

He’s our favourite Irish actor (sorry Neeson) so it’s only right we dedicate a blog post to Colin Farrell! We’ve picked out our 4 favourite films of his, what’s yours? Let us know in the comments…

1. In Bruges (2008)

We love In Bruges and it’s the top spot in our top 4 movies Colin Farrell has been in, alongside fellow Irishman Brendan Gleeson.

Farrell won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for the dark comedy. It follows the carhacters as hitmen in the city of Bruges but as you know it’s not all plain sailing. Check it out!

2. Seven Psychopaths (2012)

Seven Psychopaths was another dark comedy and stars Farrell alongside Woody Harrelson, Christopher Walken (legend) and more!

Farrell is a stuggling writer and the film is about his story he’s creating. You need to concentrate on this one but it’s really gripping and worth it if you do.

3. Phone Booth (2003)

This is classic Farrell this, as he was starting out in his fantastic career we found Phone Booth and what a film it is! Whole film set in a phone booth, this gripping thriller is right up there with the best.

Also featuring Forest Whitaker, Katie Holmes and Kiefer Sutherland, Farrell is held hostage in a phone booth by a Sniper, on the phone to the person that could kill him.

Fact for you: Jim Carrey was originally cast as Farrell’s character, Stu.

4. Horrible Bosses (2011)

If you’ve not seen Horrible Bosses then we’re not friends. It’s very funny and has a stellar line up of names, including our man Colin Farrell who plays the “Horrible boss” of Jason Sudeikis’ character, who’s out to kill him.

Also features Charlie Day, Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman, Kevin Spacey and more, what’s not to like here! Admittedly, Colin Farrell doesn’t play a massive part in this but his character is great so we had to include.
