So you want to be a mermaid?

If you grew up after the early nineties then of course want to be a mermaid! Ariel is everything and as much as it pains me she has become a role model to not just myself but thousands of girls (and boys) across the world. We'll just slide past the fact that she might not be the "healthiest" of role models and just focus on her sassy awesomeness, great hair and gravity defying clam shells. 

In lieu of an actual tail, and with the rise of the danish hygge trend (or at least a less alcohol orientated more comfort and coziness focussed form of hygge) mermaid tail blankets have become all the rage. They've even hit the high street by turning up in 
New Look.

My 31st birthday solidified my own personal mermaid transformation by producing not one, not two, but THREE mermaid blankets. My friends and family are awesome. 

 

I, of course, snapped them (Snapchat: Faeribex) and got a tonne of questions as to where they were from, I hadn't a clue but I've tried to track them down online to answer everyone's questions. 

 
 
 

Let's be honest this is a Dory blanket. A fricken Dory mermaid tail blanket!)

Seablue Handmade Knitted Mermaid blanket*
This is the closest blanket to an actual Ariel tail so it will fulfil all your little mermaid needs. 

raised fish scale blanket with tassels 
The tassels on this are pure crack for my cat, MadEye, the cute purple and blue mix knot make it a bit different from the normal styles out there. 

 
 

So if you have a mermaid obsessed loved ones birthday (or let's face it... Christmas is around the corner) then I definitely recommend fishing the internet for one of these. They will be forever thankful to you!

A Star Is Born

Lady Gaga is an absolute star. 

Before, during, and I dare say after, A Star Is Born I have loved Gaga. There’s a narrative going about during their press junket that Bradley Cooper had to push hard to get film execs on board with casting Gaga as Ally in the latest adaption and, if true, that bugs me because having seen it I genuinely feel that there is no one else that could have played her. Ally’s character has clearly been moulded around her talents - as with Barbara we have abandoned the movie star goals focussing solely on music - and I would love to know exactly how much was changed or added after casting. Bradley Coopers’ Jackson Maine cuts more of a sympathetic character than we’ve seen in previous versions of A Star Is Born, right back to the original 1937 film which inspires some of the more selfless themes in the 2018 reboot, so much so that it makes you wonder who the film is really about. 


The women of A Star Is Born have always been iconic and Lady Gaga’s portrayal takes n…

Monday mane-tenance

You may roll your eyes at the, painfully, alliterative title but I was really proud of that when I thought it up at stupid o’clock last night. After close to a decade of blogging in some form or another it gets hard to come up with these things!

As you might have guessed we’re here today today to talk about my Monday night hair ritual. You’ve heard of Skincare Sunday, well this Monday Mane-tenance. Every week - pretty much - I give my hair a loving boost with some form of deep treatment. My current favourite combo - in an effort to try and keep my colour between hairdresser appointments - is the Clairol Colour Booster in copper and the infamous £1 Argan Oil hair mask available from Poundland. 

There are a number of colour boosters on the market at the minute. I had been toying with buying the Maria Nila luminous colour masques on the Sally’s website when I came across the Clairol version in store in Superdrug. Half the price and right in front of my face. Just how I like it. I’ve bee…
