Twenty Six

I had hoped to to a more thorough Birthday in photos post with photos of me doing my hair and make up etc. but top be honest I just got caught up in the excitement of the day and forgot for the most part! He's what I managed to remember to take photos of- delicious breakfast made by Donnacha, flowers from my friend, pear, almond and chocolate tart in Queen of Tarts, presents and cards and dinner in Cortina's. 

















So that was my birthday. I also had a cocktail party the weekend before and I am never letting Donnacha make me a Long Island Iced Tea again! I was off work last week too which was an extra treat, I badly needed a break from the Summer sale madness. For some reason I seem to take a break from blogging when I'm off work, I'm happy to be back at it (not so much work though)!

How are you all?

  1. Once again I'm here to wish you a happy birthday, dear Emma! The food looks scrummy and I can almost smell the fragrant scent of Mandarin Cranberry. Through you I have also developed an appreciation of packaging and I admire these gifts you received. I see in these pictures an abundance of evidence that you are loved and appreciated by your family and friends. I am proud to be one of them. I'm glad you had a chance to take off work and take a break from blogging. Everybody needs to recharge their batteries now and again. Have a pleasant night there in Dublin town, dear friend Emma!

    1. Thank you Tom! Yes, the mandarin cranberry candle is an amazing scent! Who doesn't love a nice fruity scent! My batteries are definitely charged, although I do have more holidays next month! :)

  2. Happy birthday, Emma! :)) Seems like a great party!

  3. It looks delightful Emma, so glad you had a lovely time and I'm mad curious to know what's in the BT packaging!

    1. Haha! I love that you spotted that! I'll be doing a review very soon!x

  4. Hi Emma! I am happy to see and hear you had a wonderful birthday! I always LOVE your food photos and these were excellent as always. I love candles and Yankee Candles are favorite ones of mine, too. I need to check out the Madarin Cranberry scent. For my birthday I bought myself a small Tyler Candle in the scent of "High Maintenance". I just know you would love their scents, too, but I am not sure they are sold in Ireland. I loved the packaging on your gifts and the way they were photographed. Take care, Emma!


    1. Thank you Cindy! I must check out Tyler Candles, I'm a bit candle mad, I have one burning in my sitting room every evening! This mandarin cranberry one smells incredible. I love fruit scented candles, they always seem to be the ones I go for!x

  5. I think you scored some pretty nice shots. I always intend to take photos on my birthday but I too get caught up in the excitement and cant be bothered to take photos. I've never heard of that scent of Yankee Candle but I bet it smells delicious. They really have the best scents.

  6. Looks like a wonderful day, Emma! Happy birthday xxx

  7. Happy Birthday dearest Emma! It looks like you had a lovely ( and delicious) time. All that food looks sooo yummy. I hope you got spoilt rotten and your day was special. Aww you are a lovely Leo, I'm Sagittarius so the stars say we are destined to be great friends. ;-). xxx

    P.S In answer to your questions, yes I would absolutely love to get into sets for film/TV. I was thinking that set dressing/ prop styling for period projects would be amazing. I'm going to try and get some work experience at some point so I can give it a go.

    1. I certainly was spoiled! Everyone really made me feel very loved! The food was yummy! Yes, I think you may be right about the stars!

      I hope you get the chance to so some work experience at set dressing, I know you'd be perfect for it!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate every single one!
