St Patrick’s day – the irish way!

This is a very long post. But it’s all photographs so, that’s okay!

Happy St. Patrick’s day!

When it comes to posts about things like this I rather just show you the photographs rather than explain anything. It may be poor blogging practice on my part, but hey, a picture says a 1000 words. Enjoy.


I know, I forgot to wear green (how could I?!) BUT, I did wear green underwear. Phew.

Now here’s some art I can appreciate!


Secondly, shopping!


Morange by MAC. I know it’s orange. I KNOW. But I am just so drawn to it. I think orange is like the “red” for my skin colour. It’s a little bit strange but I love it!

Earrings 🙂 Pretty!

Oh, and I also have this obsession for over-the-knee/knee high socks. These are my pink ones. I realize they make me look like little bo peep.

Black too! 🙂



Thirdly, dinner with Michelle

Michelle was away the last couple of days because she was playing matches in Waterford. She won her match and was getting home late so I thought I would make us a nice dinner 🙂 This is what happened:


The kitchen. Before. UGH.

After! Yay!


Last but not certainly not least….



She is 8 today.

I’ve known her since she was born.

And I miss her sooooo much sometimes. We have the best times together. She is a very special girl and I can’t WAIT to see her grow up into a powerful and beautiful woman. I just cannot wait to see who she is becoming.

I am lucky to have this cutie in my life.

Happy birthday babygirl! Machi loves you very very very very very very much and wishes she could be with you on this special day.


  1. I loved this so much! I can’t beleive Devaki is 8…woah. Looks like you had fun and that lipstick is FIT, it doesn’t look that orange in the pic though? You are beautifulll.

    Love you xxx

    1. 😀 i’m glad you liked it, chick. Yeah, she has grown up sooo fast it’s scary. I still remember when she was a tiny little baby and I would hold her and love her. Now she’s a little lady!

      Yeah the lipstick does not look very orange in the picture – because the flash was on. But it really is. It’s like NEON orange.
      I don’t know when I am ever going to wear it 🙁 But I love it soooo much.
