A Mermaid’s Tale

In a review found at OnScreen, Ben Halford does not give 'A Mermaid's Tale' high marks, although he really seems to want to.

"Oftentimes it’s clumsy and flawed to comical levels. But thankfully it’s also not appalling."

Read the review, which includes the movie's official trailer, and then decide for yourself. A Mermaid's Tale is available now on DVD, Blu_Ray, and digital download. Run-time is 1.5 hours.

Prettiest Mermaid Hair

Hannah Morrill of ELLE Magazine has collected the 11 prettiest Mermaid Hair styles on Instagram.

"We fell down a technicolor fantasy rabbit hole so you don't have to."

Show me YOUR Mermaid Hair, and I'll feature you in an upcoming blog post.

Let’s Be Mermaids Party

When your little one asks for a mermaid themed birthday party, check out the mermaid party ideas found in this article at Project Nursery.

"Sea shells, starfish and ocean bubbles in shades of iridescent aqua and lavender will definitely have your little mermaids flipping their tails at this mermaid party."

There are plenty of photos, and each item mentioned in the article is available to order.

Becoming a Mermaid

In an article found at Jezebel, staff writer Megan Reynolds takes us along as she becomes a mermaid 'to prove she knows how to swim'.

"Like all ideas that sound good at the time but are actually quite scary, my journey to become a mermaid started with a PR email."

The article includes a 3-minute video.

Best wishes and starfishes,

Portland Mermaid Parade

"Every person in attendance was decked out in fantastic ocean-themed costumes."

The article also contains a video with over one hour and twenty minutes of mermaid parade action!

Mermaid Secrets of The Deep

Eric Ekholm and family have created their own mermaid themed YouTube video series, Mermaid Secrets of The Deep. The first episode of season one, entitled Survivor, has been viewed more than 31 million times.

Over 60 episodes have been created so far. The family is currently working on season nine, so there is plenty of mer-fun to be had.

For more information on the program, visit the family's YouTube page,

Safety Essentials

Mermaid swimming instructor Nicole Wildman knows that becoming a mermaid is more than putting on a tail and diving into the deep end.

In an article by Jennifer Gardner for the Charleston Gazette-Mail, we learn a number of Nicole's safety tips for mermaid swimmers. There is also a link to Nicole's Facebook page, with information on her swimming classes for children.

"Swimming with a tail is much harder than it looks, Wildman said, which is why she is teaching little girls and boys how to safely swim in a fin."

Be sure your children are well prepared before they take to the water.
