Emerald Isle…I mean Emerald Aisle

We are getting closer to St. Patrick’s Day (SPats here in Oz), which has me thinking about a trip to the Emerald Isle…I mean Emerald Aisle. Well, actually both. And yes, I said here in Oz, because that is how we pronounce it. We are Aussie (Ozzie is how you say it)! There is a lot of influence from the Emerald Isle here in Oz and I am starting to see more influence in the emerald aisle as autumn and winter fashions are hitting the stores. Next week at L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival should really let us know how much influence the emerald aisle is having.

Anyway, all this thinking about green has led to me collecting some photos on of emerald inspired images that I like and I thought I might take this opportunity to share them with you.

I’m pretty sure I will collect a few green jade bracelets on our next trip to Hong Kong!

Hopefully this wander down the emerald Aisle has gotten you in the mood for a wander around the Emerald Isle because on the 17th I will share some photos from our trip to Ireland and one of my all time favourite Irish recipes!
