Dr. Scholl's Custom Fit Orthotics Review and Giveaway

Dr. Scholl's Custom Fit Orthotics
As my husband and my friends can attest, I do not make the best choices in the selection of my footwear.  I have always been more of a fashion over function type of gal when it came to shoes.  I usually choose high heels over flats to make up for my lack of height and willingly sacrificed my foot comfort. 

I recently started a new job where it is a requirement of all employees to wear stark white tennis shoes (I know, how boring!!). They also specify the brand and model of the shoe.  You might be thinking, how much walking does one do in a normal office type job.  Well the answer to that is ALOT, especially since the building I work in (one of many!) is 535,000-square-feet.  Yep, you read that right over 1/2 a million square feet in one building.  Granted I do not walk all of that since most of it is production space but I get in my fair share of walking around to get to all the management personnel I need to work with.

As anyone that has shopped for tennis shoes can confirm, the same pair of shoes will fit everyone differently.  I have a need for a higher arch than other people I know and if I wear certain types of tennis shoes, it causes me pain in my shins, knee and lower back.

Dr. Scholl's state-of the-art pressure measurement system and Foot Mapping technology will quickly measure your foot and recommend the Custom Fit Orthotic that is right for you. Find a kiosk in a store near you.  After visiting the Sr. Scholl's Foot Mapping Kiosk, I found that of the 14 custom fit options,my custom fit inserts were the CF310's. 

I have used orthotics before, I had some hard plastic thing I put in my dress shoes that was supposed to help me with knee and back pain but I never noticed much relief.  I mostly wore them to placate my husband as a compromise for my shoe selections (he is all about function over fashion, as are most guys!)

Dr. Scholl's custom fit orthotics are made up of 4 layers, each designed to give you comfort and relief.  The Cradleflex support system is uniquely designed to help support and stabilize your arch, while the extra support layers are designed for customized cushioning and comfort.

I have been wearing my Dr. Scholl's custom fit orthotics for about two weeks now and have noticed that my feet are considerable less tired at the end of each day.  I can not speak to any clinical improvement to knee or back problems but I can say that I have not had as much regular knee pain as I normally have. 

Overall, I am really enjoying my Dr. Scholl's custom fit orthotics and will continue to test them out in my beautiful plain white boring work tennis shoes!

My Baby Clothes Boutique Review and Giveaway

My Baby Clothes Boutique

My Baby Clothes Boutique is my newest favorite online clothing boutique for my daughter.  They carry unique and affordable boutique quality clothes for both boys and girls.

I love to shop and I am striving to instill my love of shopping for clothes, shoes and accessories on my young daughter.  Luckily for me, I do not have to "force" shopping for clothes on her, she LOVES shopping and LOVES accessorizing and wearing adorable outfits.

She has so much fun picking out outfits to wear to family functions.  The family loves to see what she is going to dream up next with her mix of clothes, shoes and accessories.  She hates to disappoint them so we always try to look our cutest.

My Baby Clothes Boutique celebrates the uniqueness of all children! Carrying unique baby clothes to show off each child’s personality.   They have an adorable line of tutus, tutu dresses, and pettiskirts.  My daughter has her eye on the ever so adorable Mud Pie Purple Baby Buds Tutu Dress.
Right now my fashion forward daughter is on a shoe/boot and hat kick.  My daughter definitely inherited my love of shoes (whit a little help from me!), she had 15 pairs of shoes before she was even born and that number has only increased.   She only has a few baby hats but she loves wearing them.  I am sure if she saw all the adorable baby hats at My Baby Clothes Boutique, she would go crazy and my credit card would be in danger! (she already likes to "pay" with it when we go shopping).  I am completely in love with the Hot Pink Sunhat with Vintage White Rose

When not wearing her hats, my daughter dips into her vast collection (thanks Aunt Stacy!!!!) of hair bow, barrettes and headbands.  She has so many clips I had to make a special holder and she has a box full of dozens of headbands.  Baby headbands are some of her favorite accessories (along with any one of her 6 purses).

Since my daughter and I both love dressing her in adorable clothes, we were thrilled when My Baby Clothes Boutique gave us the opportunity to review one of their gorgeous and unique outfits.  We perused their vast site for days trying to pick just the right outfit.  We finally selected the beautiful Bonnie Jean Polka Dot Capri Set.  Trust me it was hard to only select one outfit, there are so many that we wanted.  Their prices are so reasonable, especially for boutique clothing.
