A Day to be Green: Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Are you feeling green lately, ladies? Me too, and not in the Kermit-the-Frog kind of way. I guess you know what that means…

It’s St. Patty’s Day! Time to dress up and drink down! Here are three things to remember when you’re celebrating the Irish in you this Saturday:

1. Go All Out.
The Irish have never been quiet people. I mean how could they be with all the drinking, and the drinking songs, and the, well, more drinking.

So don’t be shy this weekend when you’re going out. Try wearing green in places you wouldn’t normally.

Perhaps green eye shadow for a flash of color on your lids. The color will be a great accent to those green pants that you plan on wearing.

CoverGirl’s Intense ShadowBlast eye shadow in Extreme Green is perfect as it will help you go from day to night without smudging or smearing. ($7.50 most drugstores.)

2. Spend a Little More.
St. Patty’s Day is a day for drinking beer (if you are 21 years or older of course). So don’t drink that college-y beer this weekend. Spend a little more and drink the good stuff.

Guinness is a well-known Irish beer. It’s darker quality also makes it denser, which may mean less beer, but more fun. If Guinness isn’t your thing and you enjoy a lighter beer, try Harp. It may be lighter, but it still holds true to its Irish roots.

3. Eat, Eat, and Eat Some More!

Breakfast: Irish soda bread and Irish tea.

Lunch: Leeks and potato soup.

Dinner: Corned-beef and cabbage. (OK, the corned-beef is actually more of an Irish-American dish than a traditional Irish dish, but it is so good!)

And of course, wash all of this delicious food down with beer!

St. Patty’s Day is a day to celebrate being Irish – or not being Irish and pretending to be! So dress up, drink down and be merry collegiettes.

*Please drink responsibly.
