By MATT MOONEY Last Jan I had my first real experience of what I have come to call the “American Extra Mile”. What I talk of is the service culture that is ingrained in most U.S. businesses/ companies/brands. It will always impress European visitors to this country and has always been a talking point since before I even moved here. I always find that it makes my shopping experience a thoroughly...
The Pursuit of Happiness
By RONAI STREATER In kindergarten, my dream job was to be a veterinarian. Then somehow it became a teacher. And shortly after that it was an astronaut. My career aspirations as a minor changed with each new pair of Converse. For some odd reason, ridding all the little doggies of sickness is only a small part of what veterinarians actually do – and who knew that astronauts were truly interested...

How Fashion Won My Soul
By GERARDINE PERALTA When you hear the word “fashion”, what’s the first thing you think of? “Glamour?” “Clothes?” “Over-priced?” Or even: “Outrageous?” Fashion may be all of these things, but there’s also something so precious about it. Fashion is where art and design collide; it’s where you get to bring something to life simply by wearing it. A piece of clothing is a soul – in every stitching...

Crossing the Pond
BY MATT MOONEY “Is that an Irish Bróg I hear?” This is usually the first sentence out of anyone’s mouth following me uttering a word! I was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland.

I classify myself as one of the lucky ones. Ireland has...

It’s hard work, putting melody and rhyme and story all together into something that you feel fits. And once it’s finished, it feels great knowing that I can put something down on paper that could become worthwhile to someone. Anyone. Possibly...
