Orthosole Insoles

I haven’t been blessed with good balance and often find myself clumsily stumbling over literally nothing and hurting myself and a couple of years ago, I did just that. (I’m sure if you ask my sister, she will happily tell you this story with a tear of laughter rolling down her cheek) I was walking through a car park when I tried to get onto the curb but my foot slipped, I fell and subsequently ending up tearing a few of the ligaments in my foot which still causes me a bit of trouble to this day. I find that if I sit cross legged for more than 5 minutes it starts to get tender and if I drive for too long it gets really sore.

A few weeks ago I attended an event hosted by the South East Bloggers Club where I met the lovely people from OrthoSole, the customisable insole which has ‘multiple support options for your optimal comfort, fit, and performance.’ The insoles themselves come in various sizes and are accompanied with a bag of cushions with different levels of support ranging from ‘light, medium and firm’ which you can change depending on the level of support that you need. The cushions attach to the insoles by velcro so they can easily and quickly be changed depending on your requirement.

OrthoSole insoles can aid many health issues including:

– Knee Pain
– Back Pain
– Foot Pain
– Ankle Pain
– Heel Pain
– Arch Pain (Plantar Fasciitis)
– Hip Pain
– Shin Splints
– Circulation
– Posture

After kindly being gifted a set of the ‘Thin Style’ insoles at the event, I have been testing them out to make sure I got as much feedback as possible. I have been wearing them in my converse and trainers and I have definitely noticed a difference. My posture seems to have improved and my foot doesn’t seem to get as sore as quickly, which is the most amazing feeling. I love that I can change the level of support especially when I know I will be wearing the insoles for the whole day as the firm cushions can become a bit too much, so I usually swap them to a light cushion so it’s not so intense but I can still be sure I am getting some benefits.

I love OrthoSole and honestly wonder why it took me so long to give something like this a go. Thank you OrthoSole for gifting me with a pair of insoles, I love them!

South East Blogger Club Event

Last Thursday, I was kindly invited to the South East Bloggers Club’s latest event; a bloggers and brand networking event. The evening was held at Jump Street in Chelmsford (which is hands down the coolest place to have an event) and was the perfect night to meet up with local bloggers and brands to meet and chat. These events are always my favourite because I love meeting local bloggers and making new friends.

I arrived at the trampoline park completely unaware of what to expect especially as I went on my own; but I was greeted by the lovely girls from SEBC and immediaely felt at ease. To the left, there was a room full of bloggers and brands ready to mingle.

The first brand that I went to see was Happy Fabric where we were able to decorate our own little canvas coin purse/pouches. I like to think I am somewhat creative so this was great for me. On the front I added a decal that said ‘girls just want to have funds’ and on the back I decorated it with a pink glittery H and a few silver glitter flowers. Honestly, there was so many vinyls I could have used but I didn’t want to go too over the top so I had to limit myself.

I then went to speak to the lovely people over at Chelsea Candle Company because duh, who doesn’t love a scented candle. There was so many beautiful scents and I honeslty could have bought them all there and then. They are all made out of Soy wax so the burn time is insane!

The lovely people at Orthosole were also on hand to showcase their amazing orthopedic insole. A few years ago, I had a bit of a fall and tore the ligaments in my right ankle so I was quite excited to have a chat and find out a bit more about their insoles and if they could help when my foot gets a bit sore.

The whole night was so fantastic and I had such a laugh. Thank you so much to he lovely lot at the South East Bloggers Club for inviting me!
