GANDYS FLIP FLOPS............Orphans for Orphans.

The sun may not be shining today....
But, I'm busy getting my summer holiday footwear organised.
I have always gone for Havaiana's, as my flip flop's of choice.
  However, this summer, I am putting my best foot forward in the 'hippest' flip flop around.........

The story behind the brand is as inspiring as it is tragic.
 At the ages of 11 and 13,  Rob and Paul Forkan, lost both their parent's in the 2004 tsunami, whilst travelling down the coast of Sri Lanka during the Christmas holidays

 The brothers were determined to turn a negative into a positive,(read the full story and shop Gandys flip flops here).
And so, the Gandy brand was born. 

The flip flops have quickly caught the eye's of the celebrity world, with the likes of Jessica Alba, Michelle Keegan, Jessie J, and Jamie Oliver being spotted wearing a pair.........

Do you own a pair yet?

 I would love to know, 
 what colour and design you would choose?



  1. I had read all about the brand some time ago and when the Havianas wear out I will get a pair for sure, such a great cause! x

    1. My Havaianas, have always been so comfortable, and do go on forever, but these do look pretty strong too! But as you say a great cause, and so if I have to replace them sooner, it's money well spent! xx
