Bright skies ahead

Big doings on the siren scene. As some may know, our headmistress has been out of commission for an extended time due to health issues. At present, her health is starting to normalize and she's preparing to take the siren realm by storm with a variety of wonderfully revamped events for 2016, including all of our weekend Mythic Adventures. Single-day Siren Soirees and Fantasy Fitness themed dance classes for the public are being added to the calendar as well. We're even planning a Mermaid Bootless Camp for adults ... but more on that later.  For now, just enjoy your summer as we tinker behind the curtain to make your siren dreams come true.

Summer Slacking

The upcoming issue of la Vie Sirene e-mag was 'supposed to' launch July 1 ... then August 1 ... then I realized our contributors were having way too much summer fun to even think about getting their submissions in on time. So now, they have the summer off; but we'd like to post something summery, so we're opening up the blog version of the magazine to random summer submissions from everyone and everyone. Got a favorite photo you'd like to share? Perhaps you've written a short story you're keen to give to the world?  Whatever it is, send it on in to cestlaviesirene@gmail.com and we'll get in as part of our Summer Slacking posts.

In addition to the Cup of Mystery whodunits listed above, we're hosting a Sherlock in Paris meetup on Thurs, Aug 13 at 10am starting with a visit to the Sherlock exhibit at the Discovery Cube in Santa Ana followed by afternoon tea at Paris in a Cup, just a few miles from the museum.

Plus, Clotted CrimeSun, Aug 16 at 3pm at Tea & Teacups in Yorba Linda CA. "Murder is on the menu when a milk-curdling scream rings out at the live taping of the cable television show, A Matter of Manners, and what’s more, the killer is someone among us. Play detective, play a part, or even play dead!"

Treasure chest or tea chest ... or both?!

For those who are having a hard time deciding whether to enroll in PLUNDER ($25) or get a basic Tea Taster membership with the new Tea Travellers Societea ($25), we've made the decision irresistibly simple.

As a mid-summer special, we're offering both for one price.

Through 15 August 2015, $25 enrolls you in Siren School and makes you a member of the Societea.

Don't miss this chance to run amok with us this summer.

Make sure to mention this special offer when you sign up!
