Loving Life after 50

Happy St Paddy’s Day and a Special Giveaway

May there always be work for your hands to do,

May your purse always hold a coin or two.

May the sun always shine warm on your windowpane,

May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.

May the hand of a friend always be near you,

And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

 Dia dhaoibh JEE-uh YEE-iv (or God to you) is the Irish Gaelic Hello and seemed a fitting greeting for today. Hoping you are all having a very special day today and are enjoying the sea of green around you.  Me I am home today with a sore throat so no St Paddy’s day appropriate outfit to display. ( Maybe if i was a “serious fashion.style blogger” I would have fought through this gotten “outfit” appropriately attired, stepped out side in -31 and snapped a few shots but alas I am not that dedicated.  I did search for a few Irish appropriate greetings and then I searched my computer for shots of me in green and let me tell you there was no shortage of those. ( Guess I love green).
For today a small collection of St Paddy’s Day appropriate outfits that you may or may not have seen before on my blog (depending on if you have been following me or not).  Enjoy the outfits and please, please have a green beer for me because this little chicky will be sipping tea and chicken soup all day.(Plus stick around and  after you have enjoyed me in all my healthiness there is a special giveaway for $100 to Sephora. a Stila Makeup Palette AND a bottle of Escada perfume , how awesome is that)

The sunglasses are green and so is the bottle


OK maybe not office appropriate but they are green…..But I swear any of these would have been perfect for today.
