SIMPLY MER-MAZING GIFTS ALL MERMAID FANS NEED RIGHT NOW!

I know that mermaids and unicorns are EVERYWHERE at the moment and there are some super tacky bits out there… BUT some of us have loved unicorns and mermaids since way before they were cool and their new mainstream appeal only means that there’s even more amazing-ness out there for us to collect and covet. Totes like Ariel in her cave :).

You might have seen my post with some great Unicorn gifts, this time I’m all about the mermaid vibes, shells and holographic wonderousness. I’ve trawled the internet for my favourite mermaid themed goodies and gifts.

Look at this stuff, isn’t it neat?

I wish I was rich…

Today I spent the day shopping in Bluewater with my older sister for dresses to wear to a friends wedding in March – not an easy feat it must be said, especially when you can’t wear black or white and you’re on a student’s budget! But of course we went and looked in all the expensive stores anyway, like Ted Baker, just to get a taste…

That’s when I fell in love. Their range of prints this season are TDF (to die for) and I couldn’t help but wish I was rich and could afford £200 dresses, just for day to day wear. Here are a few of their stunning prints and dresses available online now.

Elta Strapless Maxi – £229.00

Ashir Printed Tunic – £159.00

Buro Printed Maxi Dress – £199.00

Tenniso Dragonfly Hardcase Clutch – £99.00

Svana Open Toe Platform Shoes – £95.00

I can’t find a close up of the prints, but the dragonfly one is really beautiful, and looks even better in the flesh, plus the quality of the fabric is amazing. So if you’ve got the money, I definitely recommend you head to Ted Baker and check out their stunning Spring/Summer collection!
