The Smart Sandal

Weather you're exploring new territories on vacation or just spending the day running errands, finding a shoe that allows your foot to comfortably exist in its natural shape can change your entire day; cue my new Vionic sandals. Vionic shoes feature Orthaheel Technology for ultimate comfort that help to prevent knee and back pain. Vionic's have streamlined silhouettes which perfectly conceal their podiatrist-designed technology that can be your little secret. Give your feet a break from forcing them into fashionable heels and opt for these comfy chic Vionic sandals, which just so happen to also be good for you. Below are a few of my favorite pairs currently available.

Headbands for Hope

Top - H&M, Pants - H&M, Shoes - Prima Donna, Headband - Headbands of Hope, Fish Bracelet - The Shine Project

One of my favorite things about blogging is having the opportunity to connect with talented and inspiring individuals like Jessica Ekstrom. During Jessica's internship at a wish-granting organization she discovered that girls who have lost their hair to chemotherapy have a special fondness for headbands. Inspired to make a difference, Jessica launched Headbands for Hope during her junior year of college. For every headband purchased, one is given to a girl with cancer and $1 is donated to the cancer organization of your choice! See Jessica's amazing headbands here and help her put a smile and headbands on these amazing women!

If you know of any organizations or companies that are doing their part to make a difference, please let me know in the comments. I'm always looking to spread the word.
