If you have been following me on instagram or on my you tube channel, you will know that one of my favourite things to do is go and get my nails done with Kaycie Kyle. I have been going to see Kaycie every four weeks (or more) since December 2012 when I first moved to Bristol. This was the first set I ever had done and I have never looked back. You will never see me with out my nails done, and they will more often than not be embellished with studs, designs and the latest nail trends. I have never had the same set twice becuase there is soooooo many design combinations to try out. In fact, each time I go I say “next time I think I will go for something simple” and it rarely happens, they seem to get more extravagant each time!
If you are in Bristol, I can not recommend Kaycie highly enough, she really is a fantastic nail artist, she has such an eye for detail and has such control with miniature art. Her salon in Brislington is beautifully decorated and adds a touch of luxury, whilst being affordable and fantastic value for money. However, I appreciate, not everyone will be able to get a nail salon, so for the past few months we have been creating videos for you to try these things at home. The videos range in ability and a lot of the videos have been inspiration up until now, but since I have my new blog to create awesome content for (which is all very exciting) we have plans to create some fantastic nail tutorials that you can easily accomplish at home, we will be testing out new techniques and just having fun with nail design. I really hope you continue to enjoy our videos and inspiration.
This week (because I have gone a bit Mermaid mad!) with the launch of the new blog, it seemed only right to do something mermaid inspired, check out the video below to see how we achieved the look.
Many of you will be familiar with my on going series from my previous blog space, Tuesday Twinkles. In light of my new space here on Mermaid Gossip, I wanted to rename the series to something more apt. The Little Mermaid is my favourite Disney movie and further to that, Part of Your World is my (probably all time) favourite song, so this new series Tuesday Treasures is inspired my all the treasures ariel has in her cave.
“Look at this stuff, Isn’t it neat? Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete? Wouldn’t you think I’m the girl, The girl who has everything? Look at this trove, treasures untold, How many wonders can one cavern hold?”
Tuesday Treasures (just as Tuesday Twinkles always was) is a cavern of treasures that every
wanabe mermaid could ever need in her life. For the most part it will be fashion related and include an outfit post each week, but sometimes I may just spice things up a bit with some gadgets and gizmos a plenty! (see what I did there!) For my first ever Tuesday Treasures, it seemed only fair to keep things mermaid inspired (I am riding this ship as long as it sails!). Back in December I put together this Mermaid Style post, and it was one of my all time most popular Tuesday Twinkles, so I know you love a good mermaid inspired outfit.
This weekend just gone, I was down in Bournemouth for a wedding with the photo booth, and whilst I was there I was mentally planning all the things I wanted to create for this new blog space of mine. It was well timed and I just HAD to get down to the beach and take some outfit posts and in true mermaid style, I went and sat on some rocks down at Avon Beach to launch this series with a real splash! (Literally – I even got my feet wet and splashed around in the sea!)

Did you know the collective noun for a group of mermaids is a gossip of mermaids!!?

If you have been a regular reader of Fishee Designs blog you will find my content is going to be staying pretty much as you would expect for now but I hope it will grow and develop as the new alternative fashion and lifestyle blog does.
