Smaller venues feature local artists regularly – but remember that Ireland is home to some of the world’s best talent, so don’t be surprised if the local artists outshine the international stars.

One music festival that is said to rival Glastonbury for the calibre of the acts and the size of the audiences it draws is Oxegen.

Irish and international artists are featured, giving audiences the opportunity to enjoy the music while learning about the industry.

As a travel destination for music lovers, it’s hard to beat Ireland. The beautiful countryside, historic buildings and fascinating heritage of Ireland make the perfect background for international and local artists who perform regularly in Ireland.

No matter how big or small you may be, or how young or old you are, all women want to look their best. However, shopping in fashion boutiques to keep up with the latest trends can be rather daunting. Here are a few tips that will help keep you up to date and looking great at all times.

You will first want to do some looking around in some of the busier areas of your city. There you will find women who are wearing the latest styles, and you will be able to make some decisions as to what you like and what you don’t like. Check out some local fashion boutiques to see what is being stocked so that you can get a good idea regarding what is in. The buyers for these stores are paid to keep an eye out for what designers are introducing for the latest season. However, you have to make sure you realize that just because something is trendy, that doesn’t mean it will be right for you.

One way of helping to determine what the best trends may be for you is through a combination of what you find in fashion boutiques and by what other women are wearing around town. You could, for example, pair a nice-looking top that you see someone sporting with jeans that you see in one of your local stores.

Some trends are a little bit much for many work environments, but you can still be up-to-date without going over the top. Accessories are a great way to have a stylish look without causing a stir in the office. Combine a scarf with some jewelry and you can still turn heads and be safe with the boss.

You should also, of course, consult magazines to get a good idea of the latest trends. You’ll find excellent tips and advice, and you’ll always be ahead of the curve because journalists and editors know about trends months in advance. There’s also nothing wrong with copying women who are of the same size and age as you if they are wearing outfits that you find particularly attractive. There are some women who just seem to know exactly what to wear at all times. If you’re not one of them, there’s nothing wrong with incorporating their ideas every once in a while.

When you are ready to head to your local fashion boutiques to update your look, make sure that you have room by clearing out some of your old outfits. Area charities are always looking for clothing, and you could make a very important difference in someone else’s life. Look online for charities near your home and it will be easy to donate.

NEW YORK (TheStreet) — Facebook’s (FB_) second-quarter earnings focused on mobile revenue. Shares were soaring in premarket trading Thursday as Wall Street raised price targets and upgraded shares.

 The Menlo Park, Calif.-based social networker earned 19 cents a share on $1.813 billion in revenue for the quarter, as mobile advertising revenue accounted for 41% of advertising revenue this quarter. Total advertising revenue was $1.6 billion, 88% of total revenue, and up 61% year over year.

Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters were expecting Facebook to earn 14 cents a share on $1.62 billion in revenue for the quarter.

The company ended the quarter with 1.15 billion monthly active users (MAUs), up 21% year over year. There was a 51% annual increase in mobile MAUs, which drove the strength in mobile revenue. Daily active users (DAUs) were 699 million, up 27% annually.

Following the earnings, many analysts were bullish, with several upgrading shares and raising price targets. Here’s what some analysts on Wall Street had to say:

JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth (Overweight, $44 PT)

“Facebook delivered its strongest quarter yet as a public company–results that we think could be thesis-changing for many–and we would continue to buy Facebook shares even after the ~17% move up in the after-market. Our revenue and nonGAAP EPS estimates increase 12% and 38% for 2013, and 22% and 46% for 2014.”

Topeka Capital Markets analyst Victor Anthony (Buy, $40 PT)

“Facebook needed to, and delivered, a blowout quarter. What is clear from the results is advertisers have validated Facebook as an advertising platform. For full year 2013, our revenue and Adj. EPS increases to $7.196B and $0.71, resp, from $6.733B and $0.63. We still see more upside for the stock and recommend purchase. There are several well defined catalysts over the next two years that should lead to further share price appreciation, including: 1) monetizing Instagram, which, per CEO Zuckerberg, will generate “a lot of profits”, 2) launch of auto-play video ads, 3) monetizing Graph Search, 4) a bigger push into e-commerce, and 5) the potential for S&P 500 inclusion. Further, only 1mm or 6% of FB’s 18mm potential advertisers are buying ads, implying a huge runway for advertiser uptake exists.”

Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia (Buy, $37 PT)

“We are incrementally bullish on FB’s prospects following 2Q results and believe the stock should be a core holding in Internet portfolios. 2Q’s highlight was Mobile advertising (+76% q/q versus consensus +20%). Overall revenue (53% y/y) and EBITDA (+57% y/y) accelerated from 1Q’s 38%/35% revenue/EBITDA growth. Better than expected user engagement, strong monetization and good cost control helped FB outperform even the most bullish expectations on the Street. Reiterating Buy.”

Oppenheimer analyst Jason Helfstein (Outperform, $36 PT)

“Following materially better than expected 2Q results, we are increasing our estimates and price target, and are reiterating our Outperform rating. 2Q upside was driven by higher advertiser demand for newsfeed, both on volume and price, and since mobile Newsfeed pricing is similar to desktop and advertisers are largely indifferent between mobile and desktop, revenues are tracking the consumer shift to smartphones. We believe this dynamic is an important differentiator vs. other ad-supported internet companies, that are being hurt by the mobile mix shift. As such, we are increasing ’13E and ’14E revenue by 3% and 5%, and non-GAAP EPS by 7% and 9%, respectively. Raising target to $36 from $32.”

Shares of Facebook were soaring following earnings, tacking on 30.48% to $34.59 in premarket trading.

In need of a day off to spend recuperating and relaxing from a stressful week? Many people would opt to make an appointment at a spa or with a masseuse to enjoy some feel-good alone time. That type of person will be pleased to know, then, that this sort of day is actually recommended by the doctor! Massage therapy is great for the mind and even better for the body — check out all the ways your physical health can benefit from a trip to the masseuse.

Those with poor posture can surely reap the benefits of getting a massage. Hunched or slouching postures can, over time, lead to many other complications, so if it is severe, it should be corrected. Most of the recommendations for training the body to stand up straight involve doing core workouts and learning proper balance. While those take time, practice, and patience, going to a masseuse is actually an enjoyable way to benefit the spine.

If you visit with a trained therapist regularly, it is true that your heart will be grateful. Regular therapy sessions promote circulation to areas of the body that are not typically the focal point. In turn, patients will notice that the body simply functions better. Additionally, the improved circulation can lead to a lowering of blood pressure, which helps to combat symptoms of depression, potential for heart attacks, and hormonal imbalances.

Everyone knows the woes of sitting in a desk chair all day long: the neck and shoulders surely suffer. This can put a person in a bad mood, make it difficult to sleep, and lead to other aches as a result of all the unnecessary tension. These types of strains and any other knots can quickly and effectively be kneaded out. In addition, regular massages will encourage flexibility in the muscles, preventing such stiffness and injury from occurring in the future.

Tension headaches are the result of straining in the muscles of the shoulders, back, and neck. When the muscles in these areas are overworked, the brain certainly feels it. This tension can be quickly relieved by a nice massage, and therefore, headaches like these will be cured and become less frequent. All this can be attributed to the sense of relaxation induced by massage as well as the promotion of healthy blood flow.

So, while it may feel like you are splurging or indulging by seeking out massage therapy, the truth is you are helping your body to reap some long-term benefits. Massages can be an instant cure for certain ailments, such as strained muscles or feelings of stress. However, they are also great for promoting flexibility — and therefore, avoiding injury — in the long term, and can even treat and help to prevent minor forms of depression.
