Mermaid Crowns With Real Seashells Are Taking Internet By Storm

Step aside, flower crowns, your time has passed. Mermaid crowns are all the rage now!

Chelsea Shiels, a 27-year-old Melbourne-based florist, had been making flower crowns until she stumbled upon the idea of seashell crowns… “I’ve always wanted to be Ariel, under the sea. I’m a real beach bum. That was where my obsession with the sea and shells came from”, Shiels told Cosmopolitan. For a couple years, Shiels kept the mermaid crowns a private hobby, but when the mermaid trend started to kick in, her confidence grew. Just last year the 27-year-old finally revealed her dazzling mermaid crowns and the world loves them! From festivals to themed parties to photo shoots – they’re the perfect accessory to make you feel like a true mermaid wherever you are! You can buy these one-of-a-kind crowns from her Etsy shop.

Some people lost their grip on reality! Saying that building shell crowns is not environmentally friendly is the stupidest thing I ever heard so far. She's from Australia, an island-continent bigger than Europe... with LOTS of shoreline. She's selling a few hundreds crowns yearly, which amounts to maybe 1000-2000 shells max. Her ecologycal impact is as big as you drinking a can of soda every week or so. Stop showering, stop eating meat, stop using plastic bottles, stop leaving your PC on when you're not at home, don't even think of turning that AC on that summer... if you really want to criticise a girl and her eco impact of using a few shells. Morons!

I did some "FACT checking" and this lady does NOTHING to harm any living creatures inside those shells. As matter of fact, - "To make her mermaid crowns, Shiels uses seashells that she sources from places that have an excess of shells on beaches; she works with suppliers in Australia, India, and Hawaii."

It's not the crowns. It's the eyes!

I'm going to need to know what foundation(s) the models are wearing in these images. I'm sure they're retouched at least a little, but all of these women have amazing looking skin and makeup. ????

Apparently, emojis become "????" on BP, lesson learned.
