May means May Birthdays! Happy birthday to everyone celebrating a birthday in May! If you or someone close to you has a May birthday, we’ve got some ideas for a special day.
You may have noticed our earlier blog post on January birthdays. If you remember correctly, we had Musewear flip-flops giving homage to the astrological signs of January babies! And you might have guessed, we’ve got specially designed flip-flops for May babies too! And lucky for you May babies, your birthday month is full of warm days and flip-flop weather! So are you Taurus or Gemini?

Dirty Little Secret (DLS): Taurus loves the rewards of the game: think self-indulgence and excess (after all the hard work and perseverance of course)
Compatible Star Signs: Virgo, Gemini, Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, Pisces, and Aries
Mismatched Signs: Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Aquarius
Ruling Planet: Venus
Taurus is a huge fan of the good life in all shapes and forms, be it material extravagance, sensual pleasure, or the pursuit of beautiful art and good food. Not to mention they love comfort and will prod along stubbornly to achieve their goals. But I don’t mean to call Taurus out for traits that not all of the astrological calendar would get along with! They also toil on laboriously! They’re patient, hardworking, and devoted. So it’s only reasonable they’d like to reward themselves for their labor! Rock on Taurus! Feel free to indulge in some Taurus flip-flops too!

Dirty Little Secret (DLS): People often accuse Gemini of being a bit scattered, fickle, restless, and unfocused.
Compatible Star Signs: Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, Aquarius, Aries and Taurus
Mismatched Signs: Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces, Scorpio and Capricorn
Ruling Planet: Mercury
A Gemini is full of energy and a bright personality ready to engage with others and the world around them! Gemini love to talk and know how to think about things from more than one side. So they’re great communicators. It would be hard to find a boring Gemini because they have a surplus of imagination, a variety of interests, and a curious spirit! A Gemini always seems to have a skip in her step and a youthful exuberance. Hop into some Gemini flip-flops for some fun in the sun!
May Birthstone ~ Emerald
Emerald is the symbol of rebirth. It is believed that emerald grants people foresight, good fortune, and youth. Some believe that emerald keeps the wearer calm and healthy. The stone is also said to have healing properties. Emeralds are associated with loyalty, faithfulness, and friendship. In a pamphlet in 1870, Tiffany & Co. published birthstone poems, and it was written that:
Who first beholds the light of day
In spring’s sweet flowery month of May
And wears an emerald all her life
Shall be a loved and happy wife.
As you can see below, Repeat Possessions has a great selection of emeralds and greens!
If you saw our St. Patrick’s Day selection, you already know that we’ve also got Nikibiki Seamless Signature Camisoles in every shade of green possible including a brilliant emerald green! (I’d say either one of the two on the top right)
