Ahoy there maties! Soooo I decided to do something I haven’t done in a while here on Fifty. Or well…er, at all really. Mermaids! Now, my reasons for doing an unrelated post right on top of Valentine’s day are twofold: one, I got my one and only mushy valentine’s post out of the way simply because…it’s boring. It’s everywhere. And I quite simply can’t be arsed. Nevertheless, I will have a Valentine’s post up this week with a special fifty twist for all you diehards out there. Aaaaand secondly, it is DAYUM cold. Rain, snow, sleet and general crap-ness. I felt like I wanted to warm up. So, why not join me with some sizzling bargains:
Now see, it wasn’t really enough for me to put a mermaid on a beach, looking all seductive and stuff. I decided to put her, where she belongs, near the water but she’s doing it in style. If one is to become living sushi, you do it right! Or at least I do ;D Ariel? Daryl Hannah? Hanging around on rocks, hankering after princes? Well, my friends, who needs a prince when you have little Chico here, my free doggy bag from TuTsy’s. The bag is colourchange, wearable and more importantly, adorable. You’ll also notice my fine tail from Evie’s closet. It is one of several gifts you can get absolutely free without a group tag. Just walk in, turn left and there you are. Insta-fun. The gorgeous skin is a Valentine’s special from the inimitably fantastic Jesylilo. And finally, the hair is another cracking addition to the Analog Dog Free balls down on the beach behind the AD hair island store. There are plenty to pick up and choose from so why not pay them a visit :)

Aaaand finally, a few Nightwish fans may have recognised the name of this post as being a classic album of theirs and in fact the one that sparked the idea in the first place :) Keep tuned for my alternative Valentine’s day special on the way this week, and enjoy my favourite track from the album if you’ve just read that and have a big ? above your head :P
