Every year Pantone releases it’s color of the year and 2013′s color is Emerald Green (PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald to be exact.)
“Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.”
OK, so I’m about 17 days late (or more) on this information, however, I’m so happy about this. I love green! All green’s and I think emerald is one of the most wearable, flattering and soothing colors out there.
Green is the most commonly found color in nature and it’s one of the most calming as well. For centuries green has been used to represent renewal and healing. We’re now starting into 2013 and this new era, it’s perfect that the color of the year should be emerald green.
There are so many ways to incorporate emerald green into your wardrobe and your life. If you’re a bit timid about green you can start with a small pendant or bracelet. If you’re a bit more daring you can go with emerald nails or go all the way with an emerald dress, cardigan or just add a touch of emerald with a great pair of shoes.
Be sure to look for up coming DIY’s, where I’ll be using Emerald Green to celebrate this beautiful color of the year.

Over the Christmas and New Year holidays I was lucky enough to be on the beautiful beach in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico with my family.
We all need to get away once in awhile and if you ever get the chance to go I highly recommend the Mayan Riviera. We stayed in Playa Del Carmen and it was beautiful, however if you’re looking to really get away, I recommend Tulum. I seriously fell in love with Tulum, I will be going back as soon as I can.
