Do You Got The Heel Pain Blues? Part 2

Hopefully, some of you have tried the treatment suggestion in my first post, “Do You Got The Heel Pain Blues Part 1“,  and are on the road to recovery.  I thought that I would do a quick little video and share some more heel pain relieving tips if your still singing the heel pain blues below:  

 


 

READ THIS DISCLAIMER PLEASE!!

I’m going to stop right here and let you know that I am NOT a physician, and the expressed treatment suggestions that I’m going to tell you about are ones that I have used with some success.  I am writing this post, simply because I have a deep passion to help anyone who is going through this debilitating condition, and these home treatment methods are worth trying.  I am also a certified Podiatric Medical Assistant, and I have been the business manager for a Podiatry practice for the past 17 years.  So,  I do know a thing or two about heel pain, but PLEASE remember that everyone is different and if these treatment suggestions are not working for you, PLEASE go and see your local podiatrist to get professional medical help.

Vionic Sandals with Orthaheel

Vionic Womens Tide II Orthaheel Thong Sandal Shoe

 

 

I knew the first time I put my aching feet into a Vionic sandal, that they were made for me!  Vionic shoes with Orthaheel technology were designed by a podiatrist, and basically they are biomechanically engineered to hug your arches, which supports natural alignment.  I own some sandals, flip-flops, and gym shoes, and I check back often on Amazon to get the best price which ranges from $30-$100.  

By the way…..I wear my Orthosleeve Natural colored heel pain socks with my sandals sometimes when I need some extra support, and they blend right into my tan.  LOL

Where Are You On The Swim-Fographic?

 

 

I can tell that were in the full swing of the summer season with all the ladies trying on different swimsuits, and I mean a lot of different swimsuits.  It’s a mad house out there! 🙂  I am a gal with curves, so I know that it’s important to accent my hips in a flattering, comfortable, and covered way, and I like the 40’s styled swimsuits in the Swim-fographic below.  I would love to know which swim suit era you belong too, and what suits you like on Modcloth.  Comment below, and lets embrace, support, and share our trendy beach body curves.

It’s a pool party over at ModCloth, and you’re invited! With so many bikinis and one pieces to pick from, you’re bound to find a standout look that suits your style. And while you’re at it, check out ModCloth’s exploration of so-called “ideal” beach bodies in their new Swim-fographic! It’s an intriguing look at how arbitrarily beauty standards have changed over time. Of course, ModCloth knows that every body is a beach body — the only requirements are a beach, your bod, and a swimsuit you can’t wait to flaunt!

 

 

 

Cheap RX Glasses For Me Please!

I don’t know what it is about my prescription glasses, but for some reason I get so wrapped up in my daily projects that I tend to take them off my face, and leave them behind.  (I use my glasses for seeing long distances)  Thank goodness I have a hubby who knows me really well, and he has been known to find my glasses in the garden, garage, or in the deep crevices of our couch.  So last year I decided that I was going replace my one pair of expensive glasses with several cheap pairs of RX glasses, and then I wouldn’t have to worry if I misplaced them.  This method of madness really does work for me believe it not.  🙂  

Now, let me clarify, although these glasses are inexpensive, I find that the quality, vast variety of styles, and online shopping experience has been top-notch.  Check out some of the different styled eyeglasses that I have bought online below:  (I’m getting my modeling face on for ya)

I find that I get the best deals on my RX eyewear at the following online retailers:

All I have to do is pick out a pair of funky glasses, add upgrade options if I want, figure out my size, (each website will show you how to do this), and add in my prescription information.  (they might ask you to fax or email your eye prescription to them).  I then add my glasses to the shopping cart, apply any discounts codes that I was given, and hit send.  My glasses are sent through the mail, and on my face in about 2-3 weeks.  

 

Super Saving Tip:  Many times if you are a first time buyer, you can score a FREE or super discounted pair of glasses to try.  You should also sign up for their newsletters, because this is where I continue to get rock bottom discount codes for future eyewear purchases.  

 

In closing, if your like me, and feel the need to have several pairs of RX glasses, I highly recommend that you give these online eyewear retailers a try, and by the way if you have a flexible spending account, these RX glasses qualify!  Now, go have some fun and find some comfy, trendy, colorful glasses for yourself.
