    1. Thanks Lia… the best part of reading your blog post and answers, were the names of lipsticks you came up with… ‘ Amber Autumn, Coral Cutie, Majestic Magenta ‘ you should definitely go ahead in this direction 🙂


    1. Thank you very much 🙂 I’ve seen on your blog a couple of articles about Japan, which is on my list for Hiking / Mountain Walking and the taste of original sushi as well… Would you recommend something for me or give a little bit of friendly advice? In exchange I can offer you some other advice connected with Ireland somehow, the places to see or things to experience… Cheers from Ireland… The Emerald Island

      1. I love to share with people my experiences and hear what they have been through about interesting places around the world. My knowledge about Japan is limited so I could not give any actual advice 🙂 In VietNam, we love Japanese culture so much, we have sushi, matcha green tea, fresh chocolate, Mizu shingen mochi (the water drop mochi) as well as kimono shops and a real Japanese style garden (which is shown in my blog). I hope someday I could go to Japan and have something to tell you 🙂 Love to see our blog ❤


  2. Congratulations, Swav. You have a great blog here, absolutely love it when you share your art with us. You’re not an early bird…just like me. There’s just something soothing about the night hours of the day that lulls us into creating. The world speaks to us then.

    I thought I responded to this post previously, looks like I did not! Thanks so much for the nomination. I am very humbled and flattered, and will put a link to it on my blog 🙂
