Do you sometimes dream about, or perhaps dread what lies ahead for our children? Given the current turbulent political climate not to mention the unkindness we witness on a worldly scale almost daily through social media and the news, I can’t help but contemplate where all of this will lead not only us but generations to come and where it will leave our children in the future.

Fortunately, I see a lot of kindness not only in Caspian but in children around me in general. This gives me hope that they will be able to create a better world. It is, however, our job to continue to nurture this kindness, to keep their dreams alive and encourage them to go further.

Summer collection from Mahabis


Do I want Caspian to follow in my footsteps? Yes, and no. I want him to pursue a life that makes him happy, whatever that entails. If he chooses routes I have walked I will happily hold his hand and guide him, though I will never force my experiences on him. If he chooses something completely different I’ll be on the sideline cheering him on every step of the way.

For now, I just want him to be a child for as long as possible though. For him to be ignorant to the terrors that humanity thrust upon each other every day.

I want us to love, to laugh and to run at life this summer. At least I know we’ll be comfortable in our gorgeous matching navy blue Mahabis slippers. Twinning is winning, right? I don’t think I’ve ever owned a more comfortable pair of shoes. They easily convert from indoor slippers to outdoor trainers by clicking on the colourful soles. It also means you can style them to match your outfit. This design is part of the Mahabis summer 17 collection.

They have recently launched their children’s range which goes from sizes 10 to 3. Perfect for little hands to easily slip on. Great for protection both inside and outside the home.

  1. These are fab! And you’re right twinning is winning. Sub consciously I often dress my daughter in something to match what I’m wearing too. Thanks for sharing another post with us at #fortheloveofBLOG. Claire x

  2. Ooh I’ve not seen these slippers. They look interesting so I’ll have to pop over and investigate. You’re so right that kids are full of kindness, untainted by the world. I hope my daughter, like your son, can hold on to that innocence for as long possible! #fortheloveofBLOG
