Do Your Favorite High Heels Have Your Feet More Bah Humbug Than Joyful?

Sole Patches

Have you been that Bride or Bridesmaid that along with the rest of the bridal party took her shoes off once the pictures are over and switched them out for something comfortable?

Do you wear high heels as a part of your work attire and by the end of your shift long for those bunny slippers?

Are you a Rock Star or Performer and wear high heels during your show?

Or do you just love the way high heels make your legs look or the added height they give you?

Between my days in the corporate world, being a Bride, a Bridesmaid a Maid of Honor, a God Mother, Charity Balls, Military Balls as well as other events I’ve been that gal, I AM THAT GAL!! Heck I was THAT Bride even! Lol

So, what can you do when your love of cute, stylish or classic Strappy Sandals, Boots, Booties, High Heels or Pumps, but they have your tootsies singing the blues?? Sole Patches, that’s what you can do to make them tootsies happier!

So, before you throw out your favs, consider giving Sole Patches a try. Sole Patches aren’t just a barrier like Moleskin, but give you the add padding where you want it in your trouble issues in your favorite shoes.

I have been that gal, I have given away countless shoes I had wished I had just found something that would have made the shoes comfortable or comfortable again!

Are Sole Patches perfect or will they work with every shoe or for everyone? Probably not, but after a week of trying them out in a host of shoes and even directly on my feet as they suggest, I do think they are versatile and cool!

Though Sole Patches are meant for the Soles of your feet, like placement directly on your ball of your foot or heels, plus they said you can put them directly into your shoes, I also felt since they are easily cut are great for those shoes they can cause those painful heel blisters as well or help with a shoe that is a little too big!

Now for me I preferred adding Sole Patches directly to my shoes, because I liked the fee better this way, though I did try them directly to the ball of my foot, it just seemed more comfortable directly in my shoes, but I am sure this is a personal choice and would depend if you planned on changing shoes and still wanted the Sole Patches without having to apply them in all the shoes you planned on wearing that day.

Sole Patches are a great nude color, offer nice padding without being bulky, the sticky side is nice and sticky and surprisingly didn’t leave any crazy sticky residue on my foot nor my shoes, but again everyone is different, this is only my experience with them

So overall, I really like Sole Patches and wish these were around sooner, but I am glad I leaned about them and glad Sole Patches sent me these to give them a try.

When I had first heard about Sole Patches and found out I was being sent them I really wasn’t expecting much. I figured they would just be a “Moleskin” type product with a cool name or some weird sponge like product that would feel even weirder than I thought they would be, but thankfully Sole Patches were none of those things! They are a (at least I think they are) customizable via cutting or shaping as needed, versatile as they can be placed in the ball of the shoes, the heel area or even at that area that meets your back of your foot and ankle. Sole Patches are offered in a multipack that is at a great price point and after giving them a try for 9 hours in a pair of shoes that normally would be having me looking for bunny slippers after 3 hours max.

I must say I’m pleased with them. The only thing I wished is that Sole Patches were offered in Black as well as Nude. Sure, the Nude is great, but not always great with Black shoes that are strappy or open-toed

Advanced CD Accuflora Review

Advanced CD Accuflora Review

I’ve had digestive issues for most of my life, I was diagnosed with a duodenal ulcer when I was 9yrs old, I had an eating disorder from 8yrs old up until my late 30’s and I was diagnosed with Diverticulitis when I was in my teens. So, as you can imagine I am, not one of those people who can just eat anything and there are times I “pay with gut pain” so to speak. So, I’ve learned long ago to just listen to my body about what and how much of something I eat.

So, I Juice fast from time to time, and I regularly take probiotics, as this is what works for me. For me how my gut health is can be a fine line as when I am having tummy issues and eating can be painful it can be easy to slip back to my old ways.

When Smiley360 asked if I wanted to try out a Probiotic that I had not tried before I happily accepted as I am always on the lookout for great products for digestive health. Because a healthy gut is a happy gut and makes for a happy you!
Your gut health can affect so many things and you wouldn’t even know it. When your gut health is off your immune system can be off, your skin can be affected, your sleep as well as your energy levels and regularity.

With how busy our lives are it can be tough to make ourselves a priority. So, we need to find the little things that can help, like a bit of extra sleep, a little time to decompress from our day, a breath of fresh air, appreciate the little things in life as they are often bigger than you know and talk to your doctor and see if a supplement like Accuflora is right for you.

***Before taking any supplements like Accuflora or any really and especially if your pregnant, nursing or may become pregnant or have a pre-existing medical condition or are on any medications please consult your doctor. I am not a Doctor, nor a representative of Accuflora, I am merely a blogger that has been provided this product for review and are giving my thoughts based on my health and experience with this product!*******

During this Smiley360 14 Day Accuflora Challenge I learned:

1. Probiotics are the 3rd most used specialty supplement
2. Probiotics not only support digestive health, they help support your immune system by aiding in an internal balance and they also support regularity.
3. That at least 60% of immune cells are in your intestines
4. Probiotic rich foods include: Yogurt, Kefir, Sauerkraut, Miso, Tempeh and Kimchi
5. Between 500 and 1000 different species of Bacteria live in our guts!

Per Manufacturer of Accuflora:
*Accuflora is made in the USA
*Per the box Accuflora contains 5 Beneficial strains of live active cultures
*Accuflora is an easy to swallow caplet (at least for me) that is best stored in the refrigerator once the bottle is opened.
*Supports Digestive Health
*Up to 12 Hours of Probiotic Support
*Helps Maintain Bacteria That May Be Beneficial

accuflora Probiotic Supplement “THE GOOD STUFF FROM YOGURT”
accuflora contains 5 beneficial probiotic strains including Lactobacillus acidophilus, the live culture typically found in yogurt. accuflora may help replenish your body’s good bacteria and maintain a healthy digestive system. *
accuflora provides up to 12 hours of probiotic support

Patented Advanced Controlled Delivery System
accuflora provides up to 12 hours of probiotic support through a controlled delivery system. * accuflora caplets form a gel layer that allows the probiotic to survive harsh stomach acids releasing the probiotics throughout your gastrointestinal tract system.
Why may probiotics be helpful for you?
Rich meals, dairy products, preservatives, stress, and age can all affect your body’s digestion. Thus, you may experience stomach upset, bloating and changes in regularity. accuflora can help support your digestive health and help regulate your body’s internal balance.

• Helps replenish beneficial bacteria after antibiotic use
• Helps support your immune system
• Digestive support for a naturally healthy digestive system
• The good stuff from yogurt
• Easy to swallow

Since taking the Accuflora 14 Day Challenge from Smiley360, I’ve had more energy, little issues with my ulcer, and even my monthly issue with Diverticulitis have been better as well, so I will purchase a bottle for myself and see if the results continue.

Something I learned from this 14 Day Challenge with Accuflora is there are several types of Probiotics, before I had only known about 3 of them as most of the Probiotics I’ve tried merely have 1-2 strains.
