Ah. St. Patrick's Day. The years when you hit the pub at 11 am with your friends. When you had a bunch of strangers in your house drinking green beer and eating green pancakes (this actually happened in University). The days of that. Fast-forward about 5 or 6 (... ok 10) years and here we are! I'm doing make-up demos in my bathroom during nap time! ;) But with all honesty, I'm super happy to be where I am right now. I wouldn't have it any other way.... in fact, it's going to be hard to convince me to do it any other way! (Still trying to figure out if/when I'm going to go back to work!!)
Anyway, I don't have much time left before the sleeping baby wakes (and if this crazy March 17th thunderstorm has anything to do with it, it's going to be much sooner then I've anticipated) but i wanted to share a little of what I've been up to!
I honestly went into my closet this morning to find something green to wear but because I "Marie Kondo'ed" my wardrobe this past year, the picking is kind of slim... so I decided to improvise and threw together a little Brooklyn inspired look! This was seriously one of my favourite movies of the year (I can NOT believe it didn't win any Academy Awards! What was the Academy THINKING?!) Saoirse Ronan is basically the epitome of what I think an Irish girl should look like, so I tried to channel her in my make-up, hair and then I did the best I could in finding a dress that suited the look!
What do you think? Does it work!?
I hope everyone is enjoying their day and you feel the luck of the Irish, where ever you are <3
