Some people kick back and relax by watching Netflix, others might go for a stroll, but model Roz Purcell has said she switches off by breaking out her crayons and colouring book.

With her super healthy diet and fitness obsession, Roz (left) has become quite the lifestyle guru of late and now she's singing the praises of colouring as a form of escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

"I replaced the hours or so of pointless phone watching and Instagram scrolling in exchange for colouring. I loved to colour as a child but was never that great at keeping inside the lines," the beauty queen mused in a recent blog.

"I lacked the ability to concentrate on one thing for too long and the desire to get it done fast was always overpowering.

"This has been a different experience."


While it may be an unconventional form of relaxation, Roz isn't the first Irish celeb to sing the praises of colouring therapy - quirky broadcaster Angela Scanlon is also a self-confessed fan of getting creative with her primary-coloured crayons.

Roz also recently wrote about practicing mindfulness, which is perhaps a habit she picked up from her mental health campaigner boyfriend Bressie.

The rock star turned talent show mentor revealed this week that his debut book Me and My Mate Jeffery will hit the shelves next week - we're sure his other half is as proud as punch.

Brogue's night out

They may no longer be an item, but the couple formerly known as Brogue (Brian McFadden and Vogue Williams) have definitely made a smooth transition from married couple to besties as they enjoyed a night out together recently.

The Dublin duo were all smiles as they wined and dined in London with friends, including former Made In Chelsea star Ollie Locke.

Despite announcing their split earlier this summer, the former lovebirds are still living together in the UK and Brian has been snapped driving his model ex around.

St Etienne for city gig

Saint Etienne are coming to Dublin next month.

The indie dance group, who are famous for hits Join Our Club and He's On The Phone, will perform in the National Concert Hall on September 8.

Tickets for the one off gig are priced at €30 and are available from www.nch.ie.
