St. Patty’s Day Isn’t Just For The Irish…

I’ve always loved St. Patrick’s Day. Always.

Partially, I’m sure, due to my Irish background and the fact that my brother’s name is Patrick. And partially due to the fact that, after Halloween, this is the second most fun holiday all year. Like with Halloween you get to act like a kid {even The Huffington Post agrees that this is a good idea}, eat great food, and thoroughly enjoy yourself. Though obviously my celebrations have changed over the years – I went from a “Kiss Me I’m Irish” pin when I was 9 to Jameson shots until 2am when I was 23. Never a good idea on a Wednesday, let me tell you. But however I’ve celebrated over the years, it’s always been a fun, memorable celebration.

To help get you in the mood and prove that anyone can love St. Patty’s Day, here are some fun ways to celebrate – From fashion to try to recipes that’ll make you drool there’s a little something for everyone.

Food:

ShamrockShake

Sweet tooth? Cupcakes & Cashmere has everything you could possibly want with her amazing Homemade Shamrock Shake.

If you’re in the mood for some savory, traditional Irish grub but want to keep things on the healthier side than check out Fat Free Vegan’s Colcannon Puffs, Skillet Shepard’s Pie, and Vegan Cabbage Rolls.

MintChocolateCupcakes

Guinness Cupcakes w/ Bailey’s Irish Cream Filling sound like the PERFECT way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day to me, but if boozy cupcakes aren’t the way to your heart, than perhaps Mint Chocolate Cupcakes are the answer.

It doesn’t get more festive than Purely Twins’s St. Patty’s Day Inspired Green Mint Marshmallows {Sugar-Free}. Cute, green, AND sugar-free? These are at the top of my Must Make list.

Fashion:
