I have been needing new flip flops for a while. The sad part is that I didn’t even realize how badly I have been needing new flip flops…that’s where my sister came in. Over the holidays she mentioned to me how sad and tired my favorite flips flops were. When I stopped to think about it, I realized that I bought them when my son was 5. Um, he is in 5th grade now (yikes). To top it off, I live in California and we tend to wear flip flops year round rain or shine, so you know those babies had been through the ringer.  They have been dearly loved.

So, I started wearing some of my old (but not as old) Havianas and then while out and about they snapped and I had to walk around with broken flip flops for the rest of the day, which is WAY easier said than done.

As if by divine intervention I was contacted by Musewear …they asked me to give their flip flops a whirl. Isn’t it funny how the universe works???  Their flip flops are cushy comfortable and I smile every time I put them on because each pair has an inspirational message printed directly on the footbed, so every time you slip them on you read a flash of positivity.  Musewear also has a line of flip flops called SunSignSoles that focuses on the Zodiac.  I have been wearing my Scorpio flip flops almost daily to and from pilates.

The eco side of me (which is a HUGE part of who I am) appreciates the fact that the flip flops are 100% recyclable and made from 100% Brazilian rubber.  Musewear is also very committed to giving back.  In their own words,

“Musewear was created to spread inspiration, positivity and plain ol’ fun with our flip flops AND our philosophy of giving something back to the world in which we thrive. We’ve built in the ability for you to make a difference when you shop with us. We think of it as “the Big Bang for Your Buck theory.” We’ve pledged to donate 15% of our profits to the organizations below [The Nature Conservancy, Best Friend’s Animal Society, andAmnesty International], because we admire their commitment to make our world a safer, cleaner and more vibrant place …”

    It’s hard to pick just one, isn’t it? But here is one of my favorites:

  47. “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.”
    Dr. Seuss

    • Dr. Seuss was an absolute genius in my eyes. As I lay reading his books to my daughter at night I am always struck by how poignant his social commentary is. I feel like I am enjoying his books all over again as an adult and in a much different way. Brilliant man.

    The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious quoted by Albert Einstein. I tried the Twitter links but they just came up blank. Did the rest. Maybe the links will work later. Thank you.
