BzzAgent Review: The Domino Project from Seth Godin



I have been totally remiss of this campaign because quiet frankly what I thought would interest me to read, I can not find the time to read. "Go out and get it!" "Just do it!" "Take the initiative!" "Step right up and claim your life!" Wonderful concepts. I agree wholeheartedly. I just can't find the time to read hundreds of pages whose goal it is to pump you up. Love the idea. It's just hard for me to stick with it. I've started a few books never to get past the 10th page. I have good intentions! I need a book to inspire me to read inspirational ebooks! Ah, hopeless?

What about you?

BzzAgent Review: Dr. Scholl's For her High Heel Insoles


I joined the Dr Scholl's High Heel Insoles Campaign. I thought these would be perfect since I wear heels AT LEAST 2 xs a week. 3 xs out of the year I wear them from 1-3 days in succession for 8 hours straight. I wont get the chance to test these for a 3 day in succession in time to review this but I was able to test them for 3 hours at least twice. 

PROS:
Comfortable and Supportive
Clear in color


CONS:
Thick
Expensive to get a few ($7-9 ea)

COULD BE BETTER:
If they came 2 to a pack
OR the slipped in and out of diff heels
If they were a Bit Thinner

I am not sure if it would make a difference in the support that it gives your arch, your heel, and the balls of your feet if it were a bit thinner. This was important to me because I usually already wear my high heels pretty snug so they do not slip off my ankle as I walk. (I like my heels high) Because of this, wearing the insoles made a few of my heels way too tight. I could not use them. For my loose heels, the thickness brought my ankle up higher. Not exactly ideal either. Another aspect that I did not like was that I have a variety of heels. I do not use the same pair of heels for all outfits. Because the insoles stick to the bottom of your shoe, you can not remove them and insert them in other heels. They are to be used in one pair of heels only. Bummer. Now I have to find heels that fit a bit loosely but my foot is pretty low in the shoe. I also have to find the pair of heels I wear the most. Of course I could buy more. But lets see, I have more than 5 pairs of heels. So, atleast $50 is what we are talking about here. Comfort may be well worth the price for you. I'm on a budget. :)
The good is that they are comfortable. Especially for the summer I could see how you would pair them with strappy sandles. They are clear, and I have a uncomfy pair of sandals that are begging for these insoles. 

Would I buy the product? Most definitely. Despite the cons, they are the most comfortable I have tried to date. Remember those uncomfortable pair of sandals? Plus, my bzz kit came with a coupon! YESS! Thank you Bzzagent!
