Wax Melts For Your Mer-Home

756742fa-c423-44c2-81ce-8bd151aa7a99.jpg

 

When Scent Circus released the news of their Dare to Dream collection, I was flippin’ my fins in anticipation. It’s one thing to create an enchanting product with your fave childhood characters rendered, but it’s a whole other to have it emit a scented goodness all over your home.

For those of you who have never heard of Scent Circus, they’re a handmade wax company based out of the UK. They only use eco-soy wax in their beautiful bars, which make them cruelty- free and vegan! Yay. (Plus they’re gorg)

Before I get into the whole use of them, here’s my fave piece from their mermaid release and they’re fin-tastic flavors.

 

Kiss The Girl –   Jasmine, citrus, lavender, musk and wood.

Seahorse- hints of coconut, whipped cream, fresh mint leaves

Shell Yeah –  cedar wood, sea salt, amber

Skinny Dippin’ – cocktail of pineapple, coconut, peach and sugar cane, basically a pina colada!

Wish Upon A Star Fish-  tropical fruits, banana, pineapple.

And now for the test!

Online it says they’re wax melts last for 8+ hours, so I decided to try the Skinny Dippin’ bar. It’s been sitting for 2 hours so far, and the design is still fully visible, but now accompanied by a delightful beachy scent.

I can’t wait to try out the other wax melts from Scent Circus! They even have one with Alice In Wonderland and Cinderella.

Do you use wax melts merbbz? What are some ways you keep your home smelling great?

Become A Land Mermaid With These Fintastic Swimsuits

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” 

 

 

 

Musical Vampire Mermaids? Yes plz!

What do you get when you mix the mischievous nature of mythical mermaids with a modern twist a la 80’s?

The Lure.

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!

Here kitty, kitty.

Shaving your head into a shape or random, somewhat cool pattern has been a trend for a while now, but for the ultimate cat lovers, you can now get purrfect peeking kitties!

Meet Katichka, the instagrammer that made this a trend!

Fin-Tastic Mermaid Tights (You Need These)

So today a friend shared with me this incredible and unique idea of scattered realistic scales on tights..

I know right?

Literally the best thing I have seen in the last few months.

These beautifully made, delicate and feminine stockings made from  Etsy’s  Tinkercast.

Their shop is full of magical accessories that will delight and enthrall any mer-bae to splurge and fork over their moolah. They even makes some with branching off fins, for a more fishy appearance.

The touch of delicate glimmer, those peek a boo curved lines and the strategic placement makes these perfect for any cosplayer and aspiring mer- to use for a wearable everyday alluring siren look!

And now I totally need a pair, so I can add it to my ever growing fishy collection!

Ariel Theory: Mind Blown!

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…

tumblr_lgbsekFVD51qdtiodo1_500I 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!

Whoa!
Whoa!

What are your thoughts on this theory?
