January – the peak of our Aussie summer and so, peak thong fashion time. It’s hot, hot, hot and there’s no better way to keep those twinkle toes feeling cool and better still – looking cool!
Take a peak at some of these pretty as a picture fashioned-up feet rockin’ their Slappa’s …people are so clever! Pretty polish, anklets, a bit of bling or a ribbon and viola!
How you decorate your Slappa’s is limited only by your imagination and creative talent. Popular in the fashion stakes are the brown and white Slappa’s being colours that women say they wear with dresses and skirts as they are more dressy.
Well the Slappa’s crew had a great Christmas and New Year – hope our seasonal wishes for you came true and that you had a wonderful time.
Tassie was great for our family and I loved the R & R time. Both our kids were competing in the Under 13’s Cycling and unlike many other sports, boys and girls compete together.
This was Kaylee’s first year in the Under 13’s. She was one of the youngest in her age group and the only girl. It was pretty hard going but she placed 3rd in 2 events and will be one to look out for next year. Bernie placed 2nd or 3rd in most of his races, just pipped at the post a couple of times for 1st place.
There is money to be won in the races and all money won by the kids goes into a kitty shared by all the team.
There were 8 in our team from Darwin and on their day off the winnings paid a trip to Tazmazia and bought us all lunch at Banjo’s Bakery.
The team was very successful and after our fun day out they still have enough money to buy 2 aero helmets for all the kids to use when competing in sprint competions. They are also going to put some money towards buying sporting goods to give to the kids in Timor.
Back on Deck
We all came back ready to hit the ground running and we’ve had to burn rubber to keep up with the deluge of orders from our customers and wholesalers.
If you’re anywhere near Slappa’s HQ you might see some multi-coloured Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) foam on the bitumen – that’s how fast we’re moving – leaving Slappa’s tracks! (Not rubber – we don’t make the comfiest thongs out of that stuff!)
So, what’s next?
Yeah, Australia Day! Yay!!
If you haven’t got yourself thonged up ready for the legendary Aussie Day barbie, you know who to call!
Lime green and yellow Slappa’s are currenty on sale for the bargain price of $30 per pair.
Have a great one!
