Happy Starfish Saturday Merbaes! I know it’s been a while.
I have been actively planning my trip to Miami on Monday, and by actively planning, I mean buying ridiculously cute accessories and clothes that would be perfect to shoot and strut in while there, soaking up the sun! (Us Canadian mermaids don’t get much of that).
Margarita Mermaid has been on my mind for quite some time now, plus she’s been all over my Instagram feed for the past few months (Thanks for the reminder, Instagram :p) . This designer creates adult mermaid attire that will make your inner child squee of happiness.
My only frustration with purchasing was that anytime a style i’d want would get restocked or released on the website, my size would be gone in a matter of minutes (figures!).
Luckily, I was able to snatch a mix and match pair of high waisted mermaid bottoms and a seashell inspired bikini. Of course, they are both blue/teal, my signature colours!
I can’t wait to share the photos of me wearing it on the beach! But for the time being, check out her amazing newest collection “Castaway Siren”
What do you get when you mix the mischievous nature of mythical mermaids with a modern twist a la 80’s?
This trailer starts off pretty grim, reminiscent of the Odyssey with the captivating mermaids that attracted the sailors to their deaths with their songs. It quickly ripples off into a gleam of fab imagination, one floating in a bleak ocean of an exotic club reality.
There’s tons of glitter, glamour and a pinch of horror, but the musical sing along aspect of the film relieves that dark tension.
Personally, I much prefer European films as they offer a sophisticated glimpse into revisiting the mermaid idea without making it corny and PG, so I wasn’t surprised to learn this was shot in Poland (plus the subtitles gave it away).
Who else is excited to see this movie? Let’s bring a little show girl goth-ness into the mer-world!
Highlighters come in all shapes and sizes, you have your creams, your sticks, your liquids, your powders,
but now for the first time ever..
RAINBOW HIGHLIGHTERS! (Are you as excited as I am?)
Obviously this is not for your everyday mer-bae look but if you’re like me and addicted to those shimmering eye-catching marvels that we call highlighters, I would definitely pick one of these up for safe keeping.
I found these on Etsy’s BitterLaceBeauty and she makes them in all colours if rainbow is too out there for you.
Like this pearlescent shade with a blueish purple tint to it- totally reminds me of a unicorn mane floating in the wind.
Or maybe blue is more of your colour..
They even have a shade that’s perfect for a subtle rose glow look,
But for someone who has cool undertones and wants to sparkle in lavender, this one is definitely calling my name… And of course it’s called “New Seashells”.
Well this is probably the most mind blowing theory in regards to Disney’s Little Mermaid! Someone special on Tumblr came up with this earth shattering conclusion…
I thought about it a couple of times and it makes total sense. I remember the sisters all sparkling with their own personality when interacting with Ariel. Disney has a knack for slipping in secrets here and there, especially historical connotations, so I say YAY!
