We’ll start our green month with some healthy eating, popping into the new Tidjoori Biorganic & Vegan Café at Trident Tower, Dubai Marina (04 553 1370) to test its healthy vegan menu and pick up a few veggie and organic goodies.
Then we’ll be doing a spot of retail therapy and luckily, green is a popular shade around town right now. We love this skirt, Dh350 from Next, this Accessorize cross-body bag at a bargain Dh99 and these cute Dh50 sunglasses from New Look.
And while we’re at the shops, we’ll be downloading the Good Guide app – which will give us all the relevant info with one quick barcode scan – to make sure we’re choosing products that are healthy, green and socially responsible.
Then we’ll be pampering ourselves with a trip to The Cure spa in Media City, to get our nails in tip-top condition and party perfect with a fetching shade of green from the Opi range. 04 391 6485
And of course, we love any excuse for a celebration – especially when we’re all dolled up and ready to go – and what better this month than the most green day of the year, St Patrick’s Day? Legendary crooner Bob Geldof will be back at the Irish Village on March 13 (www.timeouttickets.com), there’s a host of traditional Irish fare on offer at the Guinness & Oyster Festival at The Beach House, Anantara The Palm (04 567 8304), and our favourite Irish watering hole, McGettigan’s (www.mcgettigans.com), will be the perfect place to continue the party. Slainte!
