12 photos every Irish girl has taken


LOOK, IT DOESN’T matter who you are or where you’re from – if you’re a gal, you’ve probably participated in or been the instigator of one of these photos. No shame.

1. A photo of you and your pals crouched in a half-squat

@sammystechel didn't get the memo #sororitysquat

A photo posted by sarah🌻 (@sarahbustamante_) on

This pose was highly popular for a time in the mid-2000s. Scientists are still working to understand why.

2. And one where you’re standing crotch-to-crotch with your hands on your hips

Short hair don't care 😂 #handsonhips #woodwedding

3. A full-length one of you standing in the kitchen/hallway/garden, wearing a fancy outfit

We said casual... She didn't get the message! #princess #OffToTheDebs 🎉💅🏼💃🏼

A photo posted by Kathleen Kennedy (@kathleenk31) on

A rite of passage for anyone attending a wedding, Debs, graduation, or ball. Extra points if there’s something embarrassing in shot, like a childhood photo or a rake of dirty plates.

4. A photo of a glass of wine/cocktail and a cheeky caption

It's time to drink 🍹🍸#holidays #vacaciones #ibiza #portinatxibiza #cocktails

A post shared by MCG (@mchgarcia) on

God you’re a mad bitch! Fair play to you.

5. A photo of three of you copying the Charlie’s Angels pose

A classic.

6. A ‘nice’ photo with Himself/Herself done up for a fancy dinner out

It better be ‘nice’, because it’ll be your lock screen for the next six to eight months.

7. A photo of you and a pal sitting somewhere unusual, like in a bath at a party

Last night got a bit messy! #lastnight #eighteenthbirthday #sittinginthebath

A photo posted by Alana Warren (@thealanawarren) on

See also: In a shopping trolley, on a counter at a chipper, etc. Mad bitches who just can’t be stopped!

8. A selfie with a Snapchat filter that you reckon makes you look cute

You were too mortified to post it, but you like to have it there in your Photos folder all the same.

9. A ‘Is this dress/top/skirt nice? Don’t mind the socks’ changing room mirror selfie

For the Whatsapp group/your mam’s eyes only.

10. A “Whaddup bitches I’m on me holidays” photo

A semi-ironic ‘hot dogs or legs?’ shot, maybe; an elaborate meal; or an exotic sunset? The choice is yours.

11. A selfie taken when you were tipsy and ~feeling your look~


A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

These often turn out to be the best selfies. Stand by them.

12. And one of you and all your mates piled into a toilet cubicle

Precious memories!
