Ways to Go Green For St. Patty's Day!

Hey cupcakes! Because "green" is in season right now, I wanted to share with you all a few ways you can go green for St. Patrick's Day! :) There is a never a better time to show your love for planet Earth am I right?

1. Use local foods for your St. Patrick's Day meal - Not only will the food be extra tasty because it was grown with love, it will be free from nasty preservatives! If you have a local bar that sells its own beer, skip on the packaged kind and support your local restaurants :)

2. Don't buy any plastic decorations - There are tons of plastic beads, hats, etc. that you can buy to celebrate, but I challenge you to make your own decorations to skip on the plastics!

3. If you are going out for the night (or to a parade), use a greener method to get there - This could be a car pool, bike, etc. :D

4. Plant something green in your backyard! - I would recommend some shamrock if you are trying to stick with the holiday ;)

5. Take the money you would spend when going out and donate it - Plan a night in with your family or closest friends, and have everyone decide on the perfect charity to donate to!

6. If you have a party, recycle all the bottles! - Or, volunteer around your neighborhood to collect bottles from other people's parties. Hooray for recycling!

How To Style: GREEN

Hey cupcakes! St. Patrick's Day is almost here, so I wanted to throw together a fun collage showing you all how to style some green in preparation ;) Let's get started!

Outfit 1 - If you want to rock your green in a subtle way, sweaters are perfect! I am a big fan of jade green clothes, so I think this outfit is super cute (and a great way to get your Irish on!).

Outfit 2 - Make green your "pop of color"! I think these heels are gorgeous, and I would totally hit the town on St. Patrick's Day wearing this!

Outfit 3 - Try a classic look: jeans, kicks, a green top (or a top with green in it!), and a varsity jacket. You could even wear a St. Patty's Day tee with this outfit, and it would look super cute. :)

How do you like to rock green? Comment below and don't forget to follow The Chic Cupcake to never miss a post!

My Favorite Planners!

Hey cupcakes! Some of you may know that I have been bullet journaling this year (check out my Bullet Journaling 101 post if you haven't already!).... My bullet journal is almost full, so I have been doing a lot of research on what new planner to buy. I thought I would share my favorites with you all, in hopes to inspire you all to stay organized! :)

1. The Simple Elephant - Amazon ($19.99)

This will most likely be the planner I purchase for next year, because it is perfect for basically anyone! I am a big fan of horizontal weekly layouts, and I also love how this isn't dated (so you can start and end whenever you want!). I'm not sure if I'm sold on the color yet, but I would definitely recommend this planner for someone who wants to start journaling in a planner. :)

2. Passion Planner - Amazon ($25.00)

If you are looking for a planner with much more reflection/goal setting, this planner is for you! There are vertical weekly spreads (meh for me), and plenty of places to write!! There are also multiple color choices, so this is definitely a great one for those looking for a little more guidance through the planning process.

3. LifePlanner - Erin Condren (~$40-50)

The Erin Condren planners basically started the trend of journaling and plannering, so they are always a good option to consider! These LifePlanner can be fully customized from choosing vertical/horizontal layouts, colors, etc. I personally am not a fan of the wire binding, but I think these planners rock overall! While it is more expensive, you will get an amazing product that is worth your money. :)

4. The Happy Planner - me & my Big Ideas (~$30-40)

If you want to get uber creative, this planner is for you! You can find these at Michaels (and most other craft stores), and they are totally customizable from the binding, to added inserts, etc. While I personally don't have the time to decorate The Happy Planner, this planner is perfect for anyone looking to join the planner craze and go crazy with decoration!

5. Target Planners - Target (~$10-20)

Honestly, Target has an amazing selection of planners! Before my bullet journal, I had a planner from Target that was so nice! If you don't want to make a huge investment but still want to get an awesome planner, definitely go check out Target! :D
