Mermaid Wish List

Summer weather and the accompanying beach trips always take me back to when I was younger I wanted to badly to grow up and be a mermaid. I may have falling a bit short of the mark, I mean my hair is barely long enough to necessitate a dinglehopper, I prefer Victoria Secret Bombshells to sea shells and I still haven’t figured out how to breathe underwater. My shortcomings aside I do like to pick up the occasional thematically appropriate item (like the OPI Mermaid to Order polish). In honor of that, I give you my summer mermaid wish list!


  1. Let’s be Mermaids Tank Top
  2. Skinnydip Shell Bag
  3. Too Faced LA Creme Lipstick in Unicorn Tears
  4. Crown & Glory Mermaid Headband
  5. Silver Shell Ring
  6. Julep Polish in Aquarius
  7. Mermaid Tail Tights
  8. Skinnydip Mermaid Tears Box Bag
  9. I’m Really a Mermaid Tank

What is your summer wish list looking like?

I Want it All

I first read about Renee Nault‘s lovely watercolor mermaid paintings on this i09 post. As most of you know, I wanted to be a mermaid ballerina when I was very small, and as you might imagine things haven’t really worked out for that, so I was understandably very interested in her work. Especially her Mermaid a Week project. If that wasn’t enough, she has even done some Alice in Wonderland inspired prints (insert squee of delight). I’ve been considering getting a couple of prints for my office but then I found out she has also has other things like totes and phone covers.

I really love when artist put their work on items that you can use, it allows you to interact with the art and make it part of your life. Plus, you can never have to many totes.
