Happy St. Patty's Week!

Yes, I know St. Patrick's day is not until the 17th, but being 25% Irish, I'm claiming the whole week for going green (and not in the eco sense!)! St. Patrick's day holds special memories for me, because my mom would always make Irish peasant bread and corned beef and cabbage when I was growing up. But since I live a state away from my mom now, and I don't cook in the least bit, I'm celebrating it my own way, by focusing on green makeup all this week:The quad is MAC's Photorealism from Fall 2009. It's one I fell in love with, kind of forgot about, and now am rediscovering all over again. It goes perfect with the paint pot on the right, which is Cash Flow from the Fafi collection (god, hard to believe that was three years ago already!). My brilliant emerald green nailpolish is Zoya's Ivanka, and the necklace is a green amber butterfly I got ages ago in Lithuania.

St. Patty's day really isn't a big deal here in Cali unfortunately. There are pubs of course, but they are few and far between, and quite packed on this particular day. Though I was happy to discover that the coffee shop across from my work will be serving the aforementioned Irish food of my childhood, so I am definitely going to check that out!

Hope all of you are doing well!!


  1. I love the quad!!! That was way before I was interested in MAC, however if they had that palette now, I'd snatch it up in a minute =)

  2. I want a FOTD!!! I bet it will look excellent!

  3. Aww! happy st pattys week! I can't believe it's already here! It feels like it was just last month. That paintpot looks gorgeous. Enjoy your food!! :)

  4. Dovey, you may be able to find it in a CCO if you have one by you. I saw quite a few last time I went to the one in LV.

    I'm working my way up to that Laura! I'm a wee bit shy :-) Also I'm trying to figure out how to take EOTD first without the flash completely washing out the colors. Maybe I need to apply more for a photograph.

    Thanks prettyinthedesert, I'm looking forward to the Irish grub (though I'm not drinking the green beer!)
