I received compensation from Dr. Scholl’s® to write this post. All opinions are entirely my own.
I am SOOO excited right now because… IT’S FINALLY TIME FOR 2017 NEW YORK FASHION WEEK!! I arrived in the city last night and if you can’t tell, I’ve been looking forward to this exciting event for the past year! There is so much going on, so much to see and do, that honestly, I’m a little overwhelmed.

In order to focus, focus, focus, I’ll begin with the planned first steps of my long awaited trip (no pun intended).
Fact: I will be walking all around The Big Apple every day (and night) for the next week. I’ll be attending amazing shows, fabulous parties and visiting incredible show rooms. So while I want to be super stylish, I also want to be comfortable and able to smile from morning until night. (So important with my many upcoming client meetings and first impressions!)
Ok, so here’s my secret weapon. I use Dr. Scholl’s Stylish Step™ High Heel Relief Insoles and Extended Comfort Insoles for Flats (because they work)! These insoles really provide me with all-day comfort. For those of you who are true Shoe Fashionistas, you understand this means I can now wear my most stylish heels and flats longer without that dreaded foot pain!
Before I took off on my exciting trip, I went to my local Target to stock up on my travel needs. First on my list were the new Dr. Scholl’s Stylish Step™ Insoles (MOST IMPORTANT)! I easily found the Dr. Scholl’s section by the footcare aisle, near the pharmacy. With these incredible products, I no longer have to sacrifice comfort for glamour.
Now a little bit of educational information about the insoles and inserts I bought for “THE TRIP” and why they work!
First off, I chose the Dr. Scholl’s Stylish Step™ High Heel Relief Insoles because they give all day comfort (and relief) when I’m wearing fabulous heels that are 2 inches high or over. Their ultra-soft gel arch actually takes the pressure off the ball of your foot! These insoles are specifically designed to rebalance your foot, helping to relieve the pain caused from high heels. I will be wearing these insoles every day this next week while striding around New York City! Before discovering this great secret, I ALWAYS used to get terrible foot pain after a short time in any heels, sound familiar? Now there is no more hobbling and grimacing for this Bubbly Blonde while trying to be fashionable!
Truth: I actually consider these insoles to be one of my greatest Beauty Secrets.
This week, when I’m not in my heels (or hotel slippers!) I will be wearing darling flats fitted with Dr. Scholl’s Stylish Step™ Extended Comfort Insoles for Flats. These amazing insoles provide non-stop comfort and support for 16 hours and also provide superior shock absorption and cushioning. They are specifically designed for flats, work shoes, casual shoes and sneakers (I keep these in my sneakers at all times for extra support while working out!). So over the next few days in NY, when I “cheat” on my sky-high heels, I will be wearing my (now super comfortable) flats with a genuine smile on my face.
If you don’t want a full length insole, a great item to consider from Dr. Scholl’s Stylish Step™ line is the Ball of Foot Cushions for High Heels. These smaller cushions pinpoint high heel foot pain and relieve the ball of foot pain caused by high heels. These magical little babies also provide cushioning, absorb shock for all day comfort and prevent your toes from scrunching, while also keeping your feet from sliding forward. Who knew?!
I’m so happy to share one of my best fashion secrets with you and believe that if you try these amazing products, you will love your high heels or flats like never before! When you see my posts this week about New York Fashion Week, you’ll know the amazing little beauty secret tucked inside my shoes!

I adore all kinds of jewelry, however I really love great statement jewelry pieces! What makes statement pieces so wonderful is that is that you can take a simple outfit and dress it up with little effort. Effortless chic! When I discovered 7 Charming Sisters jewelry and their incredible statement pieces, I knew I had to take a closer look!

After researching 7 Charming Sisters, I was very pleased to discover their beautiful jewelry is well priced (under $37 for each piece mentioned above!) but what I’m really excited to share with you, is that all the jewelry is extremely well made.
So, a little bit about this great brand…..7 Charming Sisters is the brainchild of seven “work sisters” who’ve been colleagues for 10 to 15 years. The sisters are: Paula (the elegant Executive), Kim (the vivacious Life of the Party), Jennifer (the dedicated Fashionista), Donalda (the flirtatious Social Butterfly), Jessica (the smart and Sexy Nerd), Kimberly (the cute All-American Girl) and Melissa (the sporty Super Mom)! 7 Charming Sisters also has a deep commitment to help those with disabilities find jobs and employs disabled people in their studio. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THAT! Many of their handmade pieces are handcrafted by those with intellectual disabilities (who earn commission). I personally give back to my community and I loved learning this is important to 7 Charming Sisters!
Cute, sexy and classy –this jewelry line has almost any type of jewelry you are looking for. Plus…
If you enter BubblyBlonde15 you will get 15% off you order (excluding sale items) at www.7charmingsisters.com
Perfect statement pieces for you or a special gift for someone in your life!

I wanted to share a great product I’ve been using recently and absolutely love!
The InfinitiPro by CONAIR 3QMS Compact hair dryer!
Now we all have our own hair dryers of course, but this new compact, brushless dryer has some fabulous features that are pretty amazing!
First off: I live a busy life, with a pretty hectic schedule. Something you don’t know about me is that I have oily hair, so I need to wash and dry it every single day. While I LOVE how my hair looks after it’s freshly done, I have always hated the extra time it takes to dry. Honestly, we all know this daily task can be exhausting and takes up a lot of time, especially if your hair is thick and long! When I heard about the 3QMS, I was very excited and eager to try it, since I’d heard it cuts drying time by up to 70%! I knew this was huge!
Returning home with this hot pink (best color ever :-)) hair dryer, I was really excited to test it out. Ok, so here’s a very pleasant fact: the 3Q hair dryer does what Conair claims! It’s Quick, Quiet and the Quality (the 3Q’s) is great! My hair was dry within 10 minutes, which is an amazing timesaver, since my other hair dryer can take up to 25 minutes! The 3Q dryer features three heat settings that can be changed with a quick flick of the switch, as well as a low and high-speed setting and a cool switch. I used the high-speed setting which is best suited for thick and long hair. This dryer is so quiet it didn’t wake up my roommate, and it has a Heat Protect Brushless Motor with 5,000 hours of life.
Final results after using the Pro 3Q: It saved me 15 actual minutes (AMAZE!) my hair was left really shiny and almost completely frizz free without any product! Another plus – it’s lightweight and doesn’t weigh down my suitcase when traveling- Total score!!
I absolutely love my new InfinitiPro by Conair 3Q Compact Dryer and I know you will too. If you’re looking for something new to get you out the door fast every morning, this IS IT.
You can find the InfinitiPro by CONAIR 3QMS dryer at Ulta or Bed Bath & Beyond. I highly recommend this product!
