We are back from our holidays in Peñíscola, and here is my first underwater video, shot with our new aquatic camera.

I hope you enjoy it!

New H2O Just Add Water crystal necklace

I recently finished watching the third season of the H2O series, and while searching the internet for pictures of the crystal necklaces, I came across a new Swarovski bead that I had not seen before, the Galactic pendant, and upon comparing it with the crystals on the girls' necklaces, I thought it was very similar to the one in this picture of Rikki:

It is obviously not the same bead, but I thought the differences were smaller than with the De Art pendant or the Wing pendant.  So, lo and behold, I purchased a 27 mm Galactic pendant from Crystals and Silver, along with a sterling silver bail.  They came super fast, and I already have the pendant hanging from a chain. Although the aquamarine color is not perfect, it is very bright and pretty, and reflects the light beautifully.

Another version of the season three necklaces,  for all you H2O fans out there!

A fabulous surprise gift

Yesterday, my husband called me to his side and told me, "I am gifting you this so you can take it on our holidays".  And he showed me a fantastic underwater camera that he was ordering from Amazon!  It was all so fast I do not even remember the brand or model, LOL! *UPDATE* It is the Olympus TG-850 Tough, for those interested.

I am so, so happy and excited!  It was some time since I had wanted one; I even considered buying a water-protective case for ours, but I could not find a suitable model that fit.

It's coming this Thursday, and I cannot wait to try it!  Woohoo! Finally some underwater mermaid footage!
