Star Dad: Comedian and genuinely qualified space expert Dara Ó Briain helps us send a Tik Tok to Mars

Dec 04 2020

The host of Mock the Week, Dara Ó Briain, is one of the best-known faces in comedy, but he also has a long-standing, deep-rooted love for space. A mathematical physics graduate from University College Dublin, he fronted Stargazing Live alongside Brian Cox until 2017. Now he has written his third children’s book – and his second on the topic. Is Anybody Out There? explores how life begins in the first place, how Earth was created, whether aliens might exist elsewhere in the solar system, the search for other planets like our own, and the possibility of ever meeting aliens. The book is actually for everyone from ages 8 to 80! Kids and grown-ups will enjoy it.

Talented blogger and mumpreneur Uju Asika of Babes about town has published Bringing Up Race: How to Raise a Kind Child in a Prejudiced World, which I was honoured to contribute to. I have known Uju for years. We have crossed path many times and I have always loved her straight talking and honest approach to parenting, work and life in general. Very much like mine.

Christmas Gift Idea: Puressentiel gift sets

Nov 27 2020

I bet this Christmas everyone will gift practical items to support health and beauty to friends and family. It’s a given considering we have spent months locked in indulging in all sorts of things to compensate for the sadness happening outside our doors. Under my friends’ Christmas Trees there will only be presents by French brand Puressentiel. I am a fan and, in my modest opinion, it offers the very best winter health essentials on the market right now. Over the years I have attended conferences hosted by Puressentiel, have learnt all about the science behind essential oils and used all their ranges to fix my respiratory issues, sleep disorder, headache, stress and even muscular pains of all kinds. Especially during lockdown when I have not visited my doctor’s surgery once.
