Guest Blogger: Letters from a Mermaid {Favorite Things}

Hi friends! I am so excited to introduce you all to Rachael today! We definitely share a love for all things nautical, especially mermaids. I know you all will just love what she has in store.

Hey, ladies!
I am so excited to meet all of you today over at Cotton's beautiful little Southern blog!
While I am not a native Southerner (Ohio is my homeland), I like most people have some
South in my blood! 

I blog over at Letters from a Mermaid
Yes, you can tell from my name that I love all this nautical, especially mermaids, starfish, 
seahorses and pearls.  Today I cannot wait to share with ya'll a few of my favorite things!

1.  My Lilly P. Carded ID wristlet in Twill 
Honestly adorable. 
Fits my phone, credit cards, change, and even has a space for my lipgloss!

2. Coach Rollerball in Poppy
I preach about this little guy all the time, but it is such a delicacy!
Such a sweet scent and so easy to tote around. 
I believe every lady needs her favorite scent in a rollerball. 

3. My Cashmere Houndstooth Scarf
This is so very versatile. 
Looks fabulous with my peacoat, a LBD, as a shawl or just because. 
This was a recent investment for me and I don't regret it. 
I liked it better than Lilly P. Murfees!

4.  Another one of my latest investments: Ralph Lauren black leather monogrammed 
gloves with whipstiching. 

With lots of days in the brutal cold at a school on the lakeshore, this was the best thing I could
ever do for my tiny hands.  These will last a lifetime. I tend to lose 2 to 3 pairs of 
gloves a year...I may have to be extra careful now!

I invested in these a little over a year ago, and they are perfect for snow or pairing with a perfect outfit.

6. Succulents

I live in an apartment and am constantly coming and going. Plants tend to get neglected 
and I have killed many a "lucky bamboo." 
Succulents tend to last a week or even two without being watered. 
Not to mention they look adorable and are amazing in the low light of a bedroom or bathroom. 

I can't wait to meet you and learn some of your favorite things!
Stop over and say hello. 
Meeting other bloggers is my favorite part about blogging!


  1. Super cute picks! Love the idea of carrying around a rollerball fragrance in my purse - I wonder if they make one for my Honey and the Moon perfume from Tokyo Milk!

  2. I may need to invest in succulents! I love that they could go with almost any design style. That...and I kill plants.
