Colour Of The Year Goes To…..Greenery!

Good Morning to you fair reader! I have had this post in the back of my mind since January, every year the colour experts at Pantone decide on a colour of the year. Last year two colours made the grade…….


Ah the beauty that is rose quartz and serenity! This year however Pantone have chosen this……


It’s green, very green not mint or emerald …..just green. As you can probably gather green is not my favourite but I was ready to do my usual round up of products that will bring you bang up to date, I was ready to hunt out all the greenery goodies for you. 

However it turns out that the high street aren’t feeling it either, I found mint and pistachio and sage but greenery was thin on the ground. Just in case it is a wild success for you here is what I found…….


This lovely bag comes from Boden, not cheap at £140 but bang on the greenery trend. Too much money? Or too green? Try this…..

This mini beauty with its cute bag charm comes in at a mini price of £17.99, head over to Zara for this.

How about some shoes? ………..

These sandals are from Clarks and are £55.I can testify to their comfort as I have some from a previous season.

Still not convinced? How about just a pop of green in your cosmetics? First up…….

A tiny bit bright but would look fab close to the lashes for a flash of colour. This is from Beauty bay, made by Sugar Pill and £11.00.

Nails next…..


My personal favourite is this Illmasqua nail varnish in Radium, £14.50 and available widely on line.

Finally, this one is a bit of a cheat…..

This Barry M lipstick is green in the bullet but turns pink on your lips! A bargainous £4 and available widely.

And a bit of a PS: Butter London have done a collaboration with Pantone, there is a set including Greenery and some of the other colours for 2017…..


but as far as I can make out only available in the US currently where it’s retails for $39.

So there you have it, I might just go and get that Illmasqua polish to break myself into this trend. What’s your thoughts on Greenery? I’d love to hear from you!

Kisses
