Delicacies Jewelry sent me one of their products for “the Foodie Father”. Delicacies is partnered up with charities, so every purchase you make helps feed the hungry. You can read all about their backstory here.

I was sent the Thick Cut bracelet. This particular product that I was sent is made with highest quality silver, minimalist design, and an Italian leather band. It comes in a black, brown, or natural band with red trim, and you can pick which charm you would like. I was sent the Artichoke, which “promotes Peace, Wisdom, Partnership & Passion”.

I got the black band with the red trim. I like the bracelet, it is a simple but nice design. The artichoke charm is embedded on the front, so it does not have a “charm bracelet” feel. The leather is sturdy, but soft and comfortable to wear. The bracelet closes with 2 parts you can push through to secure and fasten, which is both easy and convenient.

I think it is a great idea for the “Foodie” man who likes simplistic jewelry. However, I also like wearing it, so no need to just be sold to the men! It is great for unisex, and I like how each charm/vegetable/animal has it’s own story.

Each bracelet is around $85.00. They are a tad on the expensive side, but they are made with Italian leather, and proceeds go to feed the hungry. Cheers!

Gorilla Warfare Apparel Gorilla Leggings

So I snagged a pair of Gorilla Leggings from Gorilla Warfare Apparel.  I found this company on instagram, checked out some of their stuff, (you can check it out here) and a lot of it is really cool!! I especially loved the Gorilla Leggings, as they were super unique and honestly pretty freaking sweet!

The leggings run for $40. They are super soft and a different type of material than what I am used to for yoga pants/leggings. They are thin but made of good material, so they are NOT see through (yay!!)

Nothing is worse than spending money and getting a pair of see through leggings. Talk about a waste! But these were not the case, despite having white on the front.

The top is a stretchy waist band, and they are “one size fits most”.

I wish they came in different sizes, as mine were a tad on the big and long side, but I still made it work. As a reference, I am 5 foot 1 and roughly 110 lbs in this picture, and they fit, but I wish they were a bit tighter in waist and legs.

IMG_2182Also, even though I had room, the pants did not fall down or become loose as I sweat during the workout, which is a major plus.

The pants were not as breathable as much as they were stylish, so I think these are good for those cooler days to workout in as opposed to the hot, sweaty gym days. However, I really liked them! They were fun, unique, and I love the idea of having half the face on each leg. The back of the pants are a solid grey, which I like as well, since the pants aren’t too busy.

Overall, a great buy! Especially for you legging lovers like me. Check out Gorilla Warfare Apparel. They are on Instagram at @gorillawarfareapparel  and the owner of this company is on twitter!

Vionic Venture Walker Shoes

Author: Healthnuttxo

Foot pain. I feel like I hear everyone complain how their feet hurt almost daily. And how can you blame anyone? We have jobs! A lot of them standing (think teachers, doctors, sales clerks…so many!), and a lot of them even walking quite a bit (thank your Nurse and PAs you see! They are definitely on their feet all day long!). Or even if you don’t work, foot pain is such a common complaint.

Myself? I have some issues. I may be young (err, quarter century or so), but my arches hurt unless I wear an arch support, and since I am a diabetic, my feet are prone to blisters due to extra sensitive skin. I also have occasional heel pain since I pronate too much when I walk. It has caused me to have some shin splints (when I did track) and knee problems down the line =(

So…introducing Vionic Venture Walker shoes! I got sent a pair from the company in Fuchsia to try out.  The website says one of the main features is that it has “Orthoheel Technology” which is a “biomechanic orthotic footbed that naturally aligns your feet and may help to relieve heel pain produced by reducing over-pronation”.  This is good news! I was definitely excited to try a pair.

Here’s what they look like

IMG_1412Mmmm. Look at that heel…looks nice and cushiony!

So first off, I really liked the color combinations. I have been told over and over by doctors to get “orthopedic shoes” but let’s be honest…most of them are really ugly. These however, are super cute!! I am a huge fan of pink, and I like the fuchsia color mixed with purple interior. The purple laces were also anice touch, and easy to tie. I like how they are not wide either, they just look like normal sneakers 🙂

But how did they feel?

They were soft on top, so not constricting on the foot at all.

There was a heavy duty arch support, which is nice, but definitely took some getting used to when you put it on. Within a few minutes of walking I forgot about it though, but it definitely is noticeable.

However, these are extremely comfortable, no complaints at all. I usually have issues with heel, or by toe area for sneakers. Too compressed or tight, but the lightweight top on these shoes allowed my feet to move without being constricted.

They were also very breathable, my feet didn’t sweat even on a hot day.

So…in a nut shell…these are winners! I am going to be wearing these essentially until I can’t wear them anymore. It’s definitely not easy finding a shoe that is stylish and fits comfortably. I am going to give these a solid 4.5 out of 5 stars. The only minor drawback I think is that the arch is very strong, which is totally fine for me, but may be bothersome for other individuals. It might just be that they are new and the arch might mold more to my foot as I walk, so we shall find out. Either way, I would definitely buy a pair of these in the future.
