So life can be pretty mundane. I know, right? Like you get up every morning, you slog down a cuppa joe. You drag yourself to the workout (I do work out...usually...more usually lately anyway.) You eat a healthy breakfast including all the fiber, vitamins, and daily recommended allowances while your body finishes sweating. You take your aching muscles and your creaking knees up the stairs to the shower where you'll seriously forget whether or not you've washed your face so you do it again anyway, just for good measure. And if you're lucky, you've stopped sweating in time to finish your routine, which for me, is exactly the same every single day: deodorant, hair product, lotion, make the bed, decide on clothes, put on clothes, slosh on make-up, dry hair, put more goop in hair, spray hair, brush teeth, swallow vitamin, put on jewelry, swirl on Carmex, grab Lean Cuisine and a piece of fruit, grab phone, grab keys, grab purse, go!
You drive yourself to work and maybe by the time you get there you'll remember how it was, exactly, that you got there. You work hard all day, and even if you love your job, even if it is the most scintillating aspect of your existence, it's the same ol' drill. Meetings. Lunch. More meetings. It's work.
Somewhere between 5:30-6-ish you're free and you drive home in a similarly comatose state in which you arrived at work and the Great Debate begins. What To Have for Dinner all while considering your energy level, your hunger level, your time availability, your current desire to be thin, and then times that by however many people there are in your family.
So, when I laid eyes on these babies, I considered the possibility of finding joy in a pair of sneakers.
Because not only are these pretty much the cutest, Cath-ish sneakers I've seen in a very long time, they are also eco-friendly. The outsoles are made from used car tires, the laces are made from recycled plastic bottles, and they're made with water-based glues which are much friendlier on the environment.
Gotta love companies like Simple Shoes that are making a difference to the earth, and with all these cutie pie choices, I'm a serious fan.
Understandably, I snatched them right up--because in this wonderful but sometimes mundane world of ours, there's a lot of joy to be had in a moxie fab pair of tennies like these, wouldn't you agree?
Now that's some serious joy underfoot!
