Replacement and Recycled Flippies


My new Sanuk flippies were a gift from my sweet mom, who went to the local surf shop to buy them for me after my silver Havaianas flip-flops were stolen from the beach near the home of my parents. (Beach-goers leave their shoes by the dunes before walking onto the beach, but my pair apparently caught the eyes of a shoe thief.) Mom wanted to replace them and picked the only silver pair the shop had in my size — and it is a definite upgrade. I love the simple style and comfort of Havaianas, but these Sanuks — made from recycled yoga mats! — are pillowy and feel dreamy on my feet.

Rebecca’s Newest Book: Gilbert and Louis Rule the Universe

Just to keep you informed of our other creative endeavors, Rebecca’s new tween eBook, “Gilbert and Louis Rule the Universe: First Impressions” is now available from Amazon.

Gilbert and Louis Rule the Universe: First Impressions, a contemporary version of Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice,” chronicles the adventures of two best friends as they navigate the world of seventh grade.

The story follows two thirteen year-old girls as they deal with friendship, love, embarrassing relatives and, ultimately, find out that first impressions aren’t always what they seem. Gilbert and Louis deals with that delicate time when girls are coming of age, figuring out what they want out of life, and forming the basis of who they are going to become.

Gilbert and Louis Rule the Universe is a tween chick-lit book geared towards middle schoolers, precocious elementary school students, and any adult who wants to take a trip down memory lane.
