    Skechers Skech-Air Memory Foam Shoes Review & Giveaway

    I am a walker. Simple as that. I have always been a walker. Up until I met my husband 13 years ago, I had a car on and off periodically as finances would allow. Being a single Mom to 4 kids for about 6 years, needless to say there wasn’t a lot of ‘time’ that a vehicle sat in my driveway. Luckily for me I’ve always lived in towns where you could walk from one end to the other in under 30 mins. I opt to walk instead of taking a bus, or a ride from a friend, or even my husband. I enjoy it, it’s soothing.. but it can be hell on the legs, back, and not to mention the shoes!!

    As a person who spends a lot of their time on the feet, good, comfortable, light, durable shoes are extremely important. I have had back aches, leg aches, sore feet, stiff neck and even headaches from the types of shoes I’ve worn in the past. Now, I’m careful about what I wear.

    I was given the opportunity to review a pair of Skech-Air Memory Foam shoes. Upon receiving the shoes I removed them from the box and examined them closely. I love the chic look and sleek design. I was immediately impressed with the weight of the shoes. I knew that ‘tired feet’ feeling wouldn’t be a problem with these before I even put them on. The insole is ultra soft and designed to contour to your feet, not only allowing for sweet comfort, but support where your feet need it most.

    The bottom of the shoe caught my attention immediately. The outsole is air-cushioned as well, with 26 pillow pockets that add a support and a bit of bounce to your step. This kind of made me a bit hesitant as I didn’t want to appear to be ‘bouncing’ when I walk. The flex grooves at the very bottom of the shoe were designed to provide support and flexibility with every step.

    The tagline for these shoes is ‘It’s like walking on 26 mini trampolines” and in all honesty, I couldn’t wait to find out.

    As soon as I put the shoes on, my feet were in love, I was in love, I could almost here the soles of my feet saying “thank you.. thank you”. The memory foam quickly adjusted to my foot. The shoe felt like it had been made just for my feet! I decided that so far so good, time for the big test, walking.. not bouncing, walking.

    I stood up and walked slowly around the room. I couldn’t feel the hardness of the floor or the bottom of the shoe. The flex grooves at the bottom of the shoe provided much needed support with every step I took. Did I bounce? Not at all, but it felt like it.. it was wonderful!

    And so my walking journey began. To the store, through a field, over gravel, pavement, grass… with every step that I took in every angle I stepped, the shoes supported me. Not once was there a stumble or a trip, unusual for me :)

    I wore the shoes everywhere. As much as I could, not just for my review, but they really really felt like heaven on my feet. One of my proudest moments was being able to take my 45 min walk to my dr’s office, without an ache or a pain anywhere in my body, then getting complimented by a cute teenage girl, that my shoes are ‘stylin’. :)

    Pure heaven walking, standing.. & stylin’

    These shoes really have it all!

    Sony Pictures Presents Sex Tape #BedroomSpice

    With technology now pretty much officially everywhere and people being connected at all times it is sometimes hard to forget just how many of life’s moments we broadcast to the world over the period of just a day. Seriously, try to count how many times you post something to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram in one day. The number may just surprise you! For me it was what I thought was a shocking 15 status updates or posts, yet our daughter Maria can easily break 50 posts, pictures or videos a day! Yet those teenagers never seem to have anything to talk about at the dinner table….

    But what if the worst case scenario happened and some of your most intimate moments (and we are really talking intimate here!) were accidentally shared to not only family and friends but the world? This is exactly what happens in Sony Pictures Sex Tape starring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel. Check out the absolutely hilarious movie trailer below!

    We just recently celebrated our 7th year anniversary and we were excited to go see this movie together as both Dayna and I met via an online blogging platform, so we felt something with a technology twist was a great (and very appropriate) movie pick for us! The Sex Tape had a lot of laughs and was a bit over the top but overall it was a good time. We had a good few chuckles both during and after the show.  If you are looking to have a light hearted night out with your loved one or a friend then this is probably the movie for you. It is in theatres now and is not to be missed!
