"The most abundant hue in nature, the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,"
said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

"Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation,
which is so important in today's complex world."

I just got a beautiful jade colored fluffy soft blanket for Christmas.
I'm definitely on board with the color of the year! :)

Those flats are ca-ute. What a great pop of color to an outfit. Not to mention it's my fav color!

I'm really excited about this - green is a color that I look good in. So I'm excited. Oddly enough I've only found 1 shirt so far in the shade. Or maybe it's just that I've been blinded by all the highlighter colored clothing catching my eye, instead of the emerald.

I'll take the ring first, then the OPI nail polish. Thank you very much.
