It’s that time of the year! Pantone has released their color of the year — EMERALD! What better way to start spring than with this gorgeous jewel tone that anyone can wear, regardless of hair or skin tone? Perfect timing too, with the upcoming launch of the new movie Oz the Great and Powerful! So let’s follow the Yellow Brick Road to the Emerald City, and along the way, here are some of my favorite goodies featuring this stunning shade!

Let’s not forget stunning emerald gems. Ever since Beyonce sported emerald earrings at the inauguration, emeralds have inspired a jump in jewelry sales. Take a look at Amelia Rose Cabo Gem Drop earrings ($64).

It has rich base-notes of amber, vanilla, omani frankincense and orris. This rich cream contains active ingredients such as algae, glycerin, aloe vera, shea butter and cacao butter for an intensive skin treatment, promoting an immediate lift.
