Walk On Clouds with Dr. Scholl’s For Her High Heel Insoles -

Dr Scholls for her
Dr. Scholl’s For Her High Heel Insoles 

Since I am petite woman I wear a lot of high heel shoes. I find that even short or petite sized clothes are way too long and I end up stepping on them or need to have them hemmed. Although I own dozen of high heel shoes, I always carry a pair of flats with me in my purse.

My feet are usually aching after a few hours wearing heels so I change into flats or just take my shoes off. I have tried a variety of shoe inserts, foot sprays, and powders with hopes of preventing foot pain from wearing heels. So I was delighted to try Dr. Scholl’s For Her High Heel Insoles.

Dr. Scholl’s For Her High Heel Insoles are designed to prevent foot pain in heels two inches or higher and fit sizes 6-10 in women shoes.

Product Overview:

  • Helps prevent foot pain caused by high heels
  • Proven to improve the way you feel in heels
  • Unique ultra-soft FabuSTEP gel arch shifts pressure off your ball of foot
  • Immediate and all day comfort
  • Stays firmly in place
  • Removable without damage to shoes
  • Slim design won't make shoes feel tight
  • Practically invisible, even in strappy heels

How It Works:

  • Uniquely designed ultra-soft gel arch shifts pressure off the ball of your foot
  • FabuSTEP gel provides added cushioning
  • Unique adhesive keeps insole in place
  • ¾ length design won't crowd toes

How to use:

  • Place on top of your current insole
  • No trimming required
  • Replace every 6 months or at first signs of wear

high heel inserts

I put Dr. Scholl’s For Her High Heel Insoles in a pair peep toed Via Spiga pumps that I wore for a wedding. To insert into your shoes, just remove the clear backing and place inside your shoes. line up the heel of the insole with the heel of the shoe and lining up the raised arch with the inner edge of the shoe. I felt the gel support instantly and you couldn't even see the inserts with the cutout sides or peep toe designs in the shoe. It almost felt as if I was walking on clouds. 

I felt that the using the Dr. Scholl’s For Her High Heel Insoles made my high heel shoes more comfortable and resulted in significantly less foot pain. In fact I never wore the a pair of flats that I took with me to the wedding.

Find out more about Dr. Scholl’s For Her High Heel Insoles on Facebook, Dr. Scholl's Website , and Save $2 on Any Dr. Scholl's For Her Product .

I received a product sample, coupon, collateral or other special premium from BzzAgent.

Save Your Shirts with RAISE Stain Remover - Review

I love wearing shirtsleeves and tank tops in the summer. Most of my tops are white so that they will match everything in my closet. Unfortunately I end up buying new ones every year due to the yellow stains left behind from deodorant and sweat. This year used RAISE Armpit Stain Remover and was able to remove those stubborn yellow stains.

Product Description:
RAISE is a stain remover that eliminates both underarm stains as well as ring around the collar. Raise will restore shirts to new again. RAISE works best on stains that have not been previously treated with bleach. Bleach makes sweat stains permanent. RAISE has been featured on The Doctor's as well as Shape Magazine's June issue.

How to use RAISE:
Items you need:  RAISE Armpit Stain Remover, Stained Clothing, Old Towel or Rag, Small Brush (for tough stains), and Rubber Gloves*. Use Outdoors or in a well Ventilated Room* 
(*my suggestions)
  • Use rubber gloves/ protective clothing*
  • Before use, test on small hidden section of clothing for colorfastness
  • Lay garment down on old towel
  • Apply RAISE on effected area and rub together, use small brush for tough stains
  • Let garment sit for 15-20 minutes
  • Wash garment according to directions

My Review:
I tested RAISE Armpit Stain Remover on two garments, a white tank top from American Eagle and a white nightgown (with spaghetti straps) from Victoria’s Secret. Both garments are a few years old and are stored in the attic during non-summer months. I was actually surprised that I hadn’t already thrown them out due to the extent of the yellow stains, they were much worse than depicted in the “before” picture.

RAISE successfully removed the yellow stains making both the tank top and the nightgown wearable again, very impressive. I would definitely use RAISE on any other garments that have underarm stains or ring around the collar.

Although my bottle of  RAISE Armpit Stain Remover was wrapped very thoroughly the bottle still leaked during shipping. Customer Service quickly sent another bottle and unfortunately that bottle also leaked. This time there was still product left in the bottle for me to sample. The seal under the cap seems to bust during shipping, hopefully their packaging company can increase the strength of the adhesive used during bottling.

Finally I recommend that you wear rubber gloves and use RAISE outdoors or in a well-ventilated room since it can irritate your eyes and skin. This product dispenses quickly from bottle which can easy seep through the towel under the garment. By placing your garment inside a plastic tub or container prior to application will prevent this from happening. Always keep RAISE Armpit Stain Remover and other chemicals out of reach from children.

For a limited time RAISE Armpit Stain Remover is offering a 2 for $20 special on their site

 More information about RAISE Armpit Stain Remover and Pharmworks LLC.  can be found on their WebsiteFacebookTwitter and on their blog.

Giveaway coming soon.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Skillet Pumpkin Sauce - Father's Day BBQ Recipe

       The newest addition to the Skillet line is their Pumpkin Sauces. These condiments come in three flavors: Thai Coconut, Chipotle, and Apple Vinegar Brown Sugar. I was able to sample the Apple Vinegar Brown Sugar Pumpkin Sauce.
       Gourmet ketchup or BBQ sauce is how I would describe the Apple Vinegar Brown Sugar Pumpkin Sauce. It looks similar to BBQ sauce but not as deep in color. You can clearly see black pepper and other spices distributed throughout the thick condiment.
       I was very impressed with the flavor of the pumpkin sauce. My first thoughts were “Wow! This is a feisty ketchup.” as I tasted it right from the jar. The spices and the tomato flavors dominate your mouth first.  Then sweet pumpkin flavor shine through. There are multiple levels of flavors all in one condiment, it is very nicely done.
       I thought that the Apple Vinegar Brown Sugar Pumpkin Sauce would pair beautifully with pork. I found the below recipe on Skillet's website and it made my mouth water. Since I only had a sample size jar of the pumpkin sauce and I didn’t have all day to BBQ, I modified the recipe a little.
       I used thick pork chops instead of the baby back ribs. I coated them with the dry ingredients (spices) and let them sit for a few hours before putting them on the grill. When they were almost done I coated side with the Apple Vinegar Brown Sugar Pumpkin Sauce.
       The results: The pork chops were a big hit a dinner. My husband asked how I knew how to make BBQ sauce, he was very impressed. Now I know what I buy him and cook for Father’s Day.  The Apple Vinegar Brown Sugar Pumpkin Sauce is very flavorful and I look forward to trying it on other items.
       In addition to the Pumpkin Sauces, Skillet also makes Original Bacon Spread, Fennel & Black Pepper Bacon Spread. Read my Bacon Jam Review here  More information is available at or contact   
       To purchase your own jar of the Apple Vinegar Brown Sugar Pumpkin Sauce please visit their website They ship anywhere in the United States or Canada. Skillet products are also sold in specialty stores and markets. To see if they are sold near you, check their site under "Find a Store".

This is the perfect Father's Day BBQ Recipe:

Baby Back Ribs w/ Apple Cider Pumpkin Spread
Submitted by Chef Brian O'Connor of the Skillet Diner

Baby back ribs
2 tbsp. kosher salt
2 tbsp. paprika
4 tbsp. granulated garlic
1 tbsp. onion powder
1 tsp. chipotle pepper powder
2 tsp. dry mustard
2 tsp. black pepper

1 cup Skillet Apple Vinegar Brown Sugar Pumpkin Sauce
1 cup water

Remove membrane from ribs by sliding knife underneath and peeling back the membrane on the back. Season meaty side of ribs with dry mix and let them sit overnight if possible before using them.

Cook ribs over indirect heat (250°F-300°F) for 3-4 hours. Hickory, mesquite, apple or other fruit wood may soaked in water and tossed in small quantities over the hot coals periodically during the cooking in order to impart a smoky flavor. You will need to also add more charcoal to the fire as the cooking progresses in order to maintain temperature.

After 3 or 4 hours of slow barbequing, arrange the ribs on a shallow-sided disposable aluminum pan and mop them on both sides with the Pumpkin sauce mix below. Cook for another hour, mop again, turn. Baste the ribs and check the coals at least once every hour for the next 2-3 hours.

Baste on both sides well then wrap each rack of ribs well (straight from the grill) in heavy duty aluminum foil. Allow to rest in the foil for 30 minutes When ribs are done, they will be fall-off-the-bone tender, and the meat will have shrunken away from the ends of the bone by 1/4-inch or so.
