Among The Bluebells


I've been trying to dress up a little more on my days off, as it makes me feel so much better. Something I've been reaching for often is this beautiful blue floral dress, because it is swishy and princess-y but also comfortable. I wasn't actually planning to do an outfit post for this ensemble, but then we went for a walk and found this huge patch of Spring flowers, including bluebells which matched my outfit, and it was just too perfect.

The Call of the Wild




For as long as I can remember, I have always felt the pull of nature, the need to get away from civilisation and immerse myself in earth and trees and expanses of water. I think it is one of those things you either have or you don't, and I know people who have the opposite pull, the urge to dwell deep in a metropolis, surrounded by buildings and people and technology.

An Outfit For Cardiff Castle


I'm still pretty pleased with how I managed to match myself to most of the decor at Cardiff Castle.







Everything is thrifted except the corset top, which is self made.

#CreativeKickstart March


#CreativeKickstart is a hashtag to share what we've been making and being inspired by each month, created by my merfriend Cuttlefishlove. I kept up with it for a few months last year but then lost track. This year I want to post a photo for each month. I think it will be really interesting to look back at the end of the year and see my creative journey!

Cardiff Castle: The Walls and Keep


The main reason I visited Cardiff was to go to Cardiff Castle. I had been before but never really got to explore as fully as I would have liked. This time I was determined to look around as much of the Castle as possible! I definitely succeeded in that, as we ended up spending over three hours traversing the Castle.

My Experience of An Emotionally Abusive Relationship

Casual Ariel Inspired Mermaid Outfit


I love to get all dressed up and channel fairytale princess, but I also love to wear things which feel like I'm still in my pyjamas. Thankfully most of my wardrobe allows for some kind of intersection between the two. This is one such outfit-inspired by the colours of Ariel The Little Mermaid's top and tail, suitably swishy, but also oh so comfortable.

Beautiful Stationery From Vanilla Papillon


A little while ago I found the gorgeous stationery themed Instagram account of Vanilla Papillon. I'd been admiring the beautiful vintage inspired paper goods for weeks, when I realised that Vanilla Papillon has a shop selling most of the goodies they feature on Instagram! I went ahead and placed an order, and waited with great anticipation for my package to arrive.

A Mermaid Guide to Cardiff


When I visit any city, I naturally seek out the places and activities most related to my interests. My love of mermaids and related aquatic activities has taken me off the beaten path, down alleyways and to far flung corners of cities, in search of hidden pearls. I've discovered things I never would have noticed without this interest, so I want to share my magical marine discoveries with my fellow land locked mermaids. Here is my guide to all things mermaidy and maritime in Cardiff, Wales.
