St Patrick's Day

Green Day aka St Patrick's Day


Being half Irish I thought I should commemorate St Patrick's day in some way on my blog. When wondering what to do I decided I would concentrate on all things green from my favourite areas, namely fashion, beauty and of course...bargains! Not a particularly favourite colour of mine, I did however manage to find a few green products that I actually quite like

ASOS green cocktail dress

This pretty green cocktail dress is from ASOS and is currently on sale for £17.50, reduced from £50! I really like the colour of this surprisingly, it would look lovely for a night out and it's a great price at the moment.

Green lipstick

 Now I doubt this would be a first choice of colour for most of us, but I have to say it looks very moisturising and would look great on someone with the right type of image. It's an all natural home made concoction available from Etsy for only £8.00.



Naile inc green nail jewellery


If you're not brave enough to go with the green lipstick maybe you would prefer to try this Nails inc nail jewellery for £11, you can find it here I think for just a little bit of green on St Patrick's day this would be the ideal choice.


QVC emerald and diamond cluster ring


For the emerald lovers out there, how about this 0.6 emerald and diamond cluster ring for 
£1568.50 from QVC? I know there are as many people who think emeralds are unlucky as there are who love them, I don't believe they are unlucky, but I must admit they are my least favourite precious stone. However I think the design of this ring is beautiful. It is actually a fairly perfect symbol of St Patrick's day with its' green white and gold!

Oasis green watch


If you would rather not splash out over £1500 on an emerald ring but still fancy treating yourself to something, how about this Oasis watch? It has been reduced from £30 down to £20 at ASOS and I could actually see myself wearing this watch.



Green Vans from ebay

Now these are labelled as "Men's" Vans but aren't all Vans unisex really? Either way, if you would like to treat the man in your life, or the woman, or even yourself - you can pick these up for £21.99 on ebay I have noticed the price of Vans can vary wildly but this is a fairly good price.


boys Green Nippers long sleeved tee shirt



If you have a little boy to buy for I bet he would look so cute in this Green Nippers shirt, I love this. It is currently reduced to £10.99 and is available from birth to age 2. You can find all the details here

Girls mint green leggings Green Nippers



On the same site I found these cute little girls leggings. I know they are not a true green but I don't think a true dark green is nice on a little girl, apart for the exception I have posted below. The leggings are also on sale, and for £8.99 I think they are very reasonable for an all natural and organic cotton product. You can buy these in ages 2 though 5 at Green Nippers


Little girls Tudor dress from Amazon

This is the exception, a little girl would look beautiful in this dark green Tudor dressing up dress and would feel like a princess I'm sure. You can buy this dress for £13.99 at Amazon and it would be a different look to all the pink and frilly dressing up outfits little girls usually wear to fancy dress parties.


Phase Eight green fishtail dress from House of Fraser


If you need to find a flattering alternative to the usual LBD for a special night out, you could perhaps consider this stylish fishtail Phase Eight dress. As it is such a dark shade of green it would still have a flattering, slimming look on, and at £250 from House of Fraser you know it will be well made and not likely to be worn by several other women at your occasion or special night out.


Dooney and Burke retro drawstring bag

When I lived in America Dooney and Burke were my go-to work bags, they were always great quality and never looked worn, so when looking for green handbags of course a Dooney caught my eye. I found this one at Zappos for $328, which even if you have to pay international shipping is not a bad price for a quality leather handbag. 



Green beer St Patrick's day





Finally, I would just like to wish you all a very Happy St Patrick's day, Sláinte  And if you are going to celebrate on Sunday I would love to hear about your plans. Will you be wearing anything green? xx

    1. Yes people say pearls and emeralds are unlucky and you shouldn't wear them on your wedding day for that reason, just old wives tales lol I rather like the phase eight dress too but I would like it in navy or black better. Thank you, you too and thank you for taking the time to visit and comment on my blog xx

  26. Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it
    can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
