Shapewear: Our Little Secret

Shapewear Our Little Secret

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Let me tell you about shapewear our little secret. Growing up I was never skinny but I was always short, so that makes me look even heavier. I was always made fun of for being overweight and especially in middle school and freshman year of high school. At my heaviest, I was in size 18 clothing and hit about 205lbs being only 4’10 you can imagine how it looked. I battled weight up and down and until the summer of Junior year when my battle with depression came to a head did I lose any significant weight. In the span of 6 months I lost down to 135 lbs and honestly, I looked sick. I finally got healthy and usually stay between 145-155 lbs now.

With that being said I’ve never been “flat chested” either so finding bras that fit is always a chore. It’s either too tight or the cups don’t fit right. I for one detest underwire and can’t stand to have it in a bra, it is like slow torture wearing one all day. Not to mention when the wire snaps and tries to impale you slowly.

So I started looking for a brand that would fit all my needs and that’s when I found Sonsee. Sonsee is for plus size ladies and caters to all their needs. They have sizing experts ready and willing to help you find the perfect fit every time so you don’t have any guesswork.

High Back Bra

Here are my thoughts on the products that I received. First I got the High Back Bra. This bra is a game changer because I’m having no more back pain. It gives support in all the right places and there is NO underwire *happy dance here*. It comes in nude and black and is so soft on your skin. A big win in my opinion.

Shapewear Shorts

The next thing I received was the  Shapewear Shorts. To be honest when I first got them I was like, I’m going to look like an old lady. But then I put it on, and I’m in love! After four kids lets get real there are muscles that are not in the correct spot and are stretched out. The support I felt instantly made me feel so much better. It also helps hide those little problem areas, don’t get me wrong I’m all about self-love but I could use some toning up and the shapewear provides that coverage. The fabric is breathable and great for year round use. The waistband is designed for tummy control and made to not roll down.

Mystical Fashion For Fitness

I am all about yoga, pilates, and walking lately! I love going for a morning walk (depending on weather). When it’s too cold, I may walk and then do some yoga later in the day. If it’s raining, I may stay in and take a rest day! Are you looking to add a few mystical fashion pieces for your fitness?

Beauty Brite Disclosure

As someone who works in an office, I can tell you from experience that I have a hard time finding outfits that are business casual but also tailored to my style. It seems as though recently, I have fallen into a rut of ordering t-shirts that have our county logo on them and wearing a different color every day.

It also doesn’t help that I carry weight in my middle section/stomach and I have a difficult time finding outfits that I am comfortable in. All the jeans and t-shirts have brought my self-confidence down and I struggle to find ways to look like more than just a mom of a tornado toddler.

High Quality Glasses with Affordable Low Prices

High Quality Glasses and Sunglasses that Come at an Affordable Low Price

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I’ve been wearing glasses for about four years; conveniently the same amount of time that my daughter has been alive. They weren’t kidding when they said that child birth would take away your best traits. With my little one; it seemed she sucked the iron out of my blood, took all of my Vitamin D, and zapped my eyesight. Unfortunately, I haven’t always had eye insurance so decent vision has been out of the question often.

Even with eye insurance through my employer, the traditional getting fitted and ordering glasses with the eye doctor was always a long and expensive process. My boyfriend, on the other hand, doesn’t have any insurance and his vision is worse than mine! So when he broke his glasses, having him fitted for glasses was completely off the table with the bills we had at the time.

EyeBuyDirect Offers High Quality Glasses with Affordable Prices

Most online glasses companies have cheap frames and very few options that complement everyone’s face shape. Glasses should be an extension on one’s personally and should fit like a second pair of skin. EyeBuyDirect has an option to upload a picture of yourself and try on all their frames prior to purchase. If you still aren’t sure which pair to try, take their online quiz to find an awesome pair of frames! Flip through over 1,000 men’s and women’s frames to find one that you like. Once ordered, rest easy knowing you have a 14 day fitting period and a 12 month product replacement guarantee.

I was fortunate to try EyeBuyDirect and was able to order three pairs of eyeglasses and a pair of sunglasses. EyeBuyDirect’s mission statement is to provide everyone with fashionable glasses in different shapes and sizes to be worn for any occasion; all while being affordable. I got two pairs of eyeglasses for myself, one pair of eyeglasses for my boyfriend, and a pair of prescription sunglasses.

The online order form was easy to follow and came with step by step instructions. I was able to create glasses to fit my exact everyday needs. I ordered a pair with Anti-Glare lenses for driving as well as a pair that reduces Blue Light and decreases Glare from computer screens. Each pair came carefully packed as to ensure there was no damage in transport. They also came with a carrying pouch that can double as a cleaning wipe and a use/care guide.

Even with all the extra’s added, I averaged about $100-$120 per pair which is a HUGE improvement from the usual $250 at the eye doctor!

Buy One Give One; One Action. Enormous Impact

Right now, there are 2.5 billion people who cannot see without aid. EyeBuyDirect offers a program partnered with Vision for Life that offers a new pair of glasses to an individual in need for each pair purchased.

Unfortunately, my boyfriend snapped one of the ear pieces off his glasses about two weeks into wearing them. He has a bad habit of wearing glasses in bed and falling asleep with them on. This time around, he had taken them off in his sleep and tucked them under his pillow. When he rolled over, we heard that dreaded *snap* sound. We ordered him a replacement pair from EyeBuyDirect and the order process was just as seamless and his new pair of glasses will arrive in about 10 days.

Fashionable and Functional Heels

Fashionable and Functional Heels

Beauty Brite Disclosure

 

We all have those heels; you know the ones that look good but are torturous to wear. I call them my sitting shoes. This doesn’t mean I will give up style just for comfort. Sometimes the search for fashionable and functional heels can feel never-ending until I found Skypro. Now I can have shoes that look and feel good, no matter what I’m doing.

Skypro Wally Funky II

Unless you are a stewardess or work in the airline industry, you may not be familiar with Skypro. I know I wasn’t until I tried their Skypro Wally Funky II. As a leader in the aviation industry, Skypro has been creating fashionable and functional heels, flats, boots and more for 10 years. In celebration of their anniversary, they recently made their shoes more accessible to the general public.

The brand kindly sent me their Wally Funky II to test out. Not only are these heels comfortable and stylish but they are also airport friendly. Manufactured in Portugal, every Skypro shoe features anti-skid and anti-static technology. In other words, you won’t have to worry about slipping, falling or getting “shocked”, especially during the winter.

Functional and Fashionable Heels_Insole and Bottom

Additionally, the shoes utilize Ambicork material, which is fully sustainable, lightweight, and resilient. This also helps add more cushioning to the shoes and make them resistant to humidity, mold, and mildew. Speaking of cushioning, my Wally Funky heels feature a microcellular insole designed to be soft, breathable and help absorb ground impact.

In other words, these Skypro heels will not only last a long time, but they also stay stylish and comfortable for years to come.

Styling my fashionable and functional heels

As a shoe lover, I often pick out my shoes and then an outfit to match. I like my shoes to be the focal point of whatever look I’m wearing. When my Skypro heels arrived, I started planning out what outfits would pair perfectly with them.

Since they are fashionable and functional heels, I am able to wear them with dresses, pants, and even jeans. I’ve worn them to a meeting and even to Thanksgiving this year. They were a welcome relief for my poor feet, which decided to swell from standing for way too many hours preparing Thanksgiving dinner. My sister even commented on how much she liked my Skypro heels.

Fashionable and Functional Heels - Looks

The 2.6-inch heel is the perfect height for comfort and walkability. The rubber sole means I can navigate any sidewalk, flight of stairs, or floor without worrying about slipping or sliding.  And the cushion insole adds comfort to my every step. I can see why they are so popular with those in the airline industry.

I will say they do take some breaking in, like most shoes, especially in the toes. I did get a few blisters the first time I wore them all day. To deal with this, I used a blister blocker stick and/or some athletic tape on my toes the next time I wore them. I find this helps whenever I’m breaking in shoes.

If you’re looking to treat your feet to some fashionable and functional heels, flats, or boots check out Skypro. You can find them for both men and women, in a variety of styles on Amazon, Zappos, Shoes.com and ShoesCentral.
