Did you know my maiden name is Greenwood? Perhaps that explains my green obsession? I don’t know. There’s just something about the colour green that makes me giddy. It’s just so beautiful. I want to have everything in green these days. In fact, my house is painted green—on the outside and mostly on the inside too. Now I know that might sound a bit strange for a house colour, but it’s kind of like a green olive kind of colour. I love it (obv).
Soon though, we’ll be leaving our beautiful house that has been home for over 15 years to move to pastures new. Erm…well, perhaps not quite new because we’re moving right next door. Hang on, let me explain. About five years ago, we bought the plot adjacent to this house and began the (long and laborious process) of designing a new home. The designing stage wasn’t long and laborious, I should clarify. It’s everything that’s been happening since. Let’s just say, the bureaucracy in this country can be a bit of a nightmare. Anyway, we’re getting there (at a snail’s pace), but if all goes well, we’re hoping to commence building this summer.
In the meantime, we have agreed a sale of this house, and must move out in a few months. So…we’re moving into another house in the same cul-de-sac! Exciting times, huh?! But I have completely digressed. I was talking about my green obsession. One of the reasons I keep thinking about it (green, that is), is I’ve already started planning the colour schemes and, even though, the new house walls will be entirely white this time, I can’t wait to add lots of green everywhere else lol! So, my green obsession continues.
But it’s not just household items, walls and wardrobes, for instance, that I love in green; I also love green clothes, green jewellery, green shoes, green bags, green ornaments, green plants, green nails, green lamps, green tiles, green….shall I continue? LOL (as you can see from all the outfit photos, above). Anyway, I went into such a long internet wormhole the other day, that I decided to start a new series dedicated entirely to my green obsession! I stumbled across some real green gems (for the wardrobe, the home, garden, pets, etc) that I thought I would start sharing some of this gorgeousness with you, every single week. So, if you love green, or you know someone who does, please pop over every Wednesday to find out my amazing green discoveries. I’m calling this new series, Shades of Green for obvious reasons lol.
A select few of these green beauties will be rather pricey (!), but I just had to share them because they simply took my breath away! So, let me show some green beauties…

I wrote in a recent post that I wanted to look and feel beautiful again. It’s a general feeling that I think a lot of us are having right now, after the past two years of mostly been stuck at home with no parties or posh dinners to go to. So, I really let me imagination run wild with some of these gorgeous dresses and shoes, etc. I hope one of these days, I’ll get the chance to wear something dressy again…
