Dream Come Shoe

You’ve always had dreams. Not the one where you have cocktails with Christian Bale, but more like the one you shared with all island girls growing up—life in a big city, trotting past sky-rises and artsy neighborhoods, all while wearing fabulous shoes as comfy as your familiar rubbah slippahs.

Sao Paulo-based shoe label Melissa’s Plastic Dreams lets you live out that fantasy, by teaming up with famous architects and designers from around the globe to create plastic shoes that are a totally modern and high-fashion riff on your old-school jellies.

Water Babies

You’ve always been the model of safety. You wear your seatbelt religiously (and would even if it weren’t the law), unplug appliances to prevent fires, and use personal protection every time (except when your children were conceived, but that was planned, right?)

Now that you’re Safety Mom, the key to keeping baby safe isn’t locks on cabinets and constant supervision – it’s teaching them how to survive in the water.

Good thing Hawai‘i now has four certified Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) instructors to individually teach water survival skills... Read more »
