Foot Compression Braces (review)



Disclosure: I received the foot compression braces and the orthotic heel cushions for a reduced price for my unbiased review. The opinions expressed are my own.

I received a pair of foot compression braces and a  pair of orthotic heel cushions for my review. I have worn orthotics since 2011 in my work and everyday sneakers.  The foot compression brace contain these acupuncture and massage pressure points medical grade silicon to aid and help with inflammation and circulation. The pressure points were a bit strong for me at times. They are adjustable with the Velcro strap around them. I'm not sure it's because the strap was right under the tongue of my work sneakers, or if my feet were a bit sensitive to the pressure points on the brace! If you are wondering, I did take my orthotics out of my sneakers for awhile, so that I could review these two items in my shoes.

The orthotic heel cushions... I would have liked for them to have had a bit more gel substance to them! The heel cushions can help with a wide range of foot issues that require comfort!! Heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, sore feet, to name just a few. They can help reduce the shock and strain of standing on your feet! They help me quite a bit! I do recommend them!

Review of the Antimicrobial 6-setting Rain Handshower by AquaDance with Microban (Blue)

Disclosure: I received the product for a reduced price to facilitate my unbiased review. The opinions expressed are my family's.

Steve likes a basic everyday setting on a shower. He also likes for the showerhead to reach high enough so that he's not standing in the very back of the shower to rinse his hair due to his height (he's 6 foot!) It was possible with the way that this hand shower mounted in the shower! Steven likes how different shower sprays can help his back aches and pains feel better, and sometimes help him to relax. I'm not sure if son's used the hand held aspect of the rain hand shower yet.  For me, I like the choices of sprays, depending on how my fibromyalgia or neck and back pain is feeling. I also like the handheld part, since it can help me rinse the shower after I clean it! The 6 settings are the following : Power Rain, Pulsating Massage, Gentle Mist, Rain/Massage, Rain/Mist, and Water-Saving On-Off/Pause.

The Microban aspect of the rain handshower has to do with the antimicrobial part of the showerhead in the anti-clog nozzles. I know that my family doesn't want to be sprayed with bacteria when we shower!  If you rub the jets when you clean your shower, you can help to keep the jets clear of  deposits (like minerals) in your water. You have a choice of blue, purple, or aqua colored jets. I chose the blue ones for us, since the guys wouldn't decide!   I know that we've been quite pleased with the product, and I would seriously recommend it!

"The Lonely Pumpkin" by Nicole Monroe

Disclosure: I received this book for free in exchange for my unbiased review. The opinions expressed are my own!

I really enjoy sharing about children's books that have an important message about them. "The Lonely Pumpkin" is one of those books for youth: the kind of book that when you read it, you learn something! There was a pumpkin who was what most would consider unattractive, he was dirty and had bumps on him. People were buying other pumpkins in the patch, and he was being ignored.  He was waiting for a child who would come and take care of him. He got sad when the others were bought and taken home with people.

I don't want to give the ending away! It is a great book, and is an easy read for the young ones. This book teaches children that we are not alone, and there is someone who loves us just the way that we are. What a great message!  Nicole Monroe wrote the book, and it has lovely illustrations in it.
