Oh My Mermaid
The mermaid mindset is fearlessly pursuing your dreams, even when they take you off the beaten path. It’s knowing that you define what success means and looks like for you.
There are a lot of amazing blogs, books and ideas out there to guide girls through school, job applications, and making it in whatever industry they’re in. But something is missing.
Where’s the shout out to the girls that don’t just want to know how to do something well, but how to take their passion to the next level. These are the mermaids.
Mermaids are the girls living life on their terms. They are boss babes, entrepreneurs, artists, digital nomads, leaders, passionate creators, dreamers and change makers. Ultimately they are anything they want to be.
Mermaids work, love and live according to their own rules. This blog is here to support you and your goals. I’m here to remind you that you are a badass and even when it isn’t easy, living the mermaid life is about staying true to yourself and your goals!

I believe that we should follow our own hearts and our own rules when designing our relationships. After 7 years with my husband, I fell in love with my best friend and her husband. My husband fell for my best friend too, and ever since then, we’ve been a happy polyamorous family. I can’t imagine life without them now.
When I’m not blogging or spending time with one of my partners I’m probably dying a slow, sweaty death on the treadmill. My secret dream is that science will someday let me eat the pizza and lose the weight but until then, I’m on a journey towards improved health and true mermaid strength.
Life has changed us, but our love remains constant. That’s what I mean when I say we are high school sweethearts.
When I write about working from home I caution my readers not to romanticize the reality – I give up stability, normal working hours (although I am… Read more “Sincerely, Carmen in Canada”
