Sea Change

Ocean conservation should be on the mind of every mermaid and merman. Recently, Great Big Story carried the story and video, Sea Change: Tipping the Scale Toward Conservation in Palau.

"Roughly one-third of the catch from Palau's long-line fisheries are non-target species, meaning that millions of turtles, dolphins, rays and sharks end up as "road kill" on the undersea highway."

Tipping the Scale Toward Conservation in Palau is the second half of Sea Change. The article also includes a link to part one, The Battle Against Poaching in Palau.

Mermaid Beauty Products

In my previous blog post, we talked a bit about mermaid fashion, including swimwear and nail art. Today, we continue the conversation with a look at more mermaid-inspired beauty products.

"Ariel always wanted to be part of our world, but when it comes to beauty, we would like to be submerged in hers."

The article by Lauren Levinson at Pop Sugar covers it all: makeup, hair, skin, body, and nail products.

My favorites on the list are the Mermaid Soap Bar and the Mermaid Perfume. We first talked about Mermaid Perfume back in February of 2013.

The Deep

A new mermaid show is coming to Freeform (formerly ABC Family). No Ariel in this show, this mermaid show will be targeted to adults.

"Because it’s a dark, complex, live-action, hour-long drama about mermaids reclaiming their right to the ocean, that’s why."

For the full story, head on over to Hello Giggles, and take a look at this article by Winona Dimeo-Ediger.

NC Mermaid School

A recent article at Pursuitist invites us to send our little ones to mermaid school in North Carolina. Note that you don't have to be a 'little one' to enjoy the fun.

"The new Mermaid School experience is offered through an exclusive partnership and on-property pop-up from recreation leader, Kitty Hawk Kites."

The article by McLean Robbins includes a number of great photos. There is a lot of splashing going on in North Carolina these days.

Perth Mermaids

What started out as a mermaid photo shoot ended up turning Amelia and Jessica into professional mermaids.

"They got so much attention that they started doing it on the reg, and years later, hundreds of people turn up to watch them perform at beaches around Australia."

The full story by Lisa Bowman can be found over at Metro UK. Learn more about the Perth Mermaids at their web site.

Mermaid Fashion

I recently came across two articles in which fashion has been influenced by mermaids. The first is a swimwear line dedicated to mermaids. Nicole Briese of Brit+Co has the story.

"There’s something utterly enchanting about these mythical and lovely mermaids that makes us all want to be one..."

For our second article of mermaid fashion, Fashion Week columnist May Chan recently featured a story on mermaid inspired nail art. Perfect for summer visits to the beach, or just about anywhere.

"From iridescent scales to Disney princess homages, no one is immune to these sparkling aquatic colors."
