Star Spangled

I'm loving these printed jeans! The stars are so cute, even though they are really subtle in these pictures. I think they add a little extra something to an otherwise simple look.

Dr. Scholl's® For Her High Heel Insoles

I recently had the opportunity to try out Dr. Scholl's® For Her High Heel Insoles as part of the Influenster Sunkissed Vox Box program.

The Deets:

Dr. Scholl's® For Her High Heel Insoles are proven to improve the way you feel in heels. The unique design helps prevent foot aches and pains caused by high heels two inches and higher. Plus, the ultra-soft gel arch shifts pressure off the ball of your foot while providing guaranteed all-day comfort.

The Good:

The fact that these insoles are clear is a major positive as this allows you to wear them with strappy sandals without being conspicuous. The insoles are also very flexible and cushion-y from the gel. The extra gel in the arch is an awesome addition, especially for us flat footed ladies. The gel in the ball of foot area also allows for less forward sliding of the foot, and takes a lot of the usual pressure off of that area.

The Bad:

The only negative aspect of the insole is the adhesive. It's not very strong, so after several hours one of the insoles started shifting. Also, it would be extremely useful if the adhesive allowed for reuse in different shoes.

The Conclusion:

 Even with the adhesive issue, I would definitely recommend these to every single lady out there. These provide that extra comfort that will allow you to wear your heels for an extended period of time.

Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics

I recently had the chance to test out one of Goody's latest products, the Ouchless Ribbon Elastics. As a lover of all things ponytail, I was excited to see if the product lived up to its claims.

The Deets:
"Goody’s NEW Ouchless Ribbon Elastics offer you a unique hair tie to personalize your ponytail. As beautiful as ribbons but soft and stretchy too, these hair ties are “knot” your average elastic. New Ribbon Elastics are both comfortable and fashionable, plus look great in your hair or on your wrist."

The Good:

 These elastics are extremely soft and comfortable on the hair. They don't snag or pull hair out as you are taking them off. Another plus is that they don't leave unsightly dents in your hair like other elastics. The range of colors is nice and the knot tie is a cute little addition to your regular ponytail. My daughter likes to wear them on her wrist, but I'm past the days of stacking elastics. The elastics are also very reasonably priced at around $3 or $4 for a pack of five. 

The Bad:

I really wanted to love this product, but I was disappointed in the fact that I was not able to wrap the elastic around my hair enough times to really get a secure hold. I have long, thick, heavy hair so a tight wrap is essential if the ponytail is hold all day. The elastics also stretch out fairly quickly with regular use.

The Conclusion:

I would only recommend these to those with thinner hair or those who like loose ponytails. I would also recommend them to younger girls who like the look of a cute ribbon on their wrist. I will continue to use the elastics that I have, but I don't see myself purchasing them in the future.
