Reasons to be a mermaid: perfect hair, no pants, no period, you get to lure men to their death. Bonus: free clam bra!
But seriously, every girl has dreamt of being a mermaid at some point in their lives. On my last adventure to Bali, this childhood fantasy was turned to reality by Island Mermaids, who decked me out in a shiny tail and their signature real clam shell bikini top. With the addition of this incredible goddess jewellery by Millie Savage, it was easy to forget I had legs and get lost in mermaid life for a couple of hours. Although, with a costume this sexy, I probably felt more like a sea siren than anything. Either way, it was such a fun morning!
