First of all, I want to talk about these sandals, b/c they are so very special. I was contacted by Buyamba about their footwear and after reading a bit about them, I fell in love instantly. Beyond just being beautiful footwear, there is a huge mission and purpose behind them. They have partnered with displaced women from Uganda to create these beautiful beads for their shoes. So far this has given over 200 women fair wage jobs, giving them a better opportunity to provide for their families after the effects of war. The beads are all made from scraps of magazines and trash, and are processed through a lead free & water based process, which makes them also environmentally friendly. Also, a percentage of all sales of their products are also given back to the community for the children to further educate them and provide nutritional needs. I would say these little colorful beads are doing alot of good!!!
On a side note, this outfit makes me to want to go to the beach and pick up seashells so bad! I really hope we get to have one little getaway to the beach this summer. I could really use it. The past two weeks have been a bit crazy and rough, but I do see the light at the end of the tunnel! Its all good stuff, just keeping me so busy I forget to breath.
