Skechers GOwalk: Comfort of a Rubber Shoe with Casual Style for Errand Days and Travel Marathons

Make me choose between comfort or style and I would pick comfort in a beat.  I'm a mom with three kids and I can't have achy feet.  Hehe I have enough trouble in my hands and I can't worry about my feet:-)  That said,  in all my travels with the family (mostly theme parks),  I always use my good old trusty rubber shoes.   Of course,  wearing my training shoes, isn't exactly stylish but hey at least my feet are a-ok.  I wouldn't mind though if I can find the travel shoe that would meld comfort and style.   And promise,  I have found that in Skechers GOwalk.

A few weels back, I was invited to the "Amazing Race" Skechers GOwalk event at Glorietta Mall.  Select bloggers were invited to test the comfort of Skechers GOwalk. 3 groups composed of 5 mommy bloggers were running all over Glorietta to complete 8 missions. That's our Yellow Team down there composed of Earthling Gorgeous, Momma n Manila, Mommy Practicality and Moomy Musings.

We came in a a few seconds later than the winning team but the adrenalin rush was exhilarating!

We were tasked to do a shofie at the park then run across the other end of Glorietta to get our next mission.  We burned calories, man!  But the shoe was heaven!  Skechers nailed it when they coined the tagline "feel the bounce" as the shoe was so light, was contoured properly and I felt a bounce in my step.  I didn't get any achy feet after all that running  Promise guys!

With regard to style,  I love their boat shoe Skechers GOwalk collection.  It took me 10 years to decide between the grey or the blue one, but decided on the blue since I'm mostly in jeans.

My tweener daughter, who is so finicky with shoes (not because of style but because of comfort.  She is the one whose socks must be seamless) loved it!  I'm getting her, her own pair because I can hardly wear mine anymore:-)

Here is the low-down on the science behind Skechers GOwalk:

  • V-stride which allows the shoe to follow our natural walking gait.
  • Resalyte Midsole that absorbs impact from walking.
  • 4-Way Engineered Stability Stretch Mesh for superior flexibility.
  • Integrated Ortholite (exclusive) and anti-microbial sock liner that lets you go sockless without worrying about foot odor.
  • Quick Fit Portal for easy on easy off convenience.
  • GO Impulse Sensors that provides traction for enhanced footing control.

That's a lot of science for a shoe but in my momma language it simply spells mega-comfort!  I have been using it a lot lately since errands dominate my days;-)

No Two Women are Alike: Understanding the Difference in Lactacyd’s 5 Variants

Lactacyd 5 Variants

No two women are alike, so goes the new tagline of Lactacyd Feminine care line.  I was invited to the glamorous launch of Lactacyd last week at the Crowne Plaza and I was thrilled to see their Brand Ambassador, Anne Curtis, live!

I always thought Anne Curtis is pretty but when I saw her at the event,  she was more than just a pretty face.  She is oozing with confidence,  is vibrant, light and fun.  I'm a fan!  O di ba, now I follow her on Twitter and Instagram!

In the event, they launched the newest variant of Lactacyd, "Cool and Fresh" with a light and fun TV commercial of Anne Curtis.

They also highlighted the 5 variants of Lactacyd.  You know when there are so many variants, you go by what is prettiest to the eye, pleasant to the smell.  Or maybe just reach out for the original variant.  I'm both depending on how much time I have in the grocery:-)

But it would be good to know what to reach out for because more than just the packaging and the smell,  each variant addresses our different needs, personalities, lifestyle and hygienic care routines.

Lactacyd Protecting is best for women who may experience irritation as a result of daily activities and humidity. Thanks to lactoserum and lactic acid, this classic Lactacyd keeps itching, irritation and odor away through its delicate caring properties.

Lactacyd White Intimate is a whitening feminine wash that provides women with safe and clinically-tested cleansing with effective lightening of the bikini area.   Made with natural plant-based Actipone-B, marine-based Algowhite, and milk-ingredients, Lactacyd White Intimate gently lightens the intimate area within 4 weeks1 that’s why it’s preferred by 9 out of 10 Asian women2.

Lactacyd Revitalize has youth reviving benefits that goes beyond cleansing.  It promotes both skin elasticity and softness, it has Vitamin E and collagen which are known ingredients to enhance skin softness, suppleness and firmness. Users claim to achieve 90% skin youthfulness in just 10 days3.

Lactacyd All-Day Care combines natural milk extracts with light floral scent that gently cleanses and refreshes the intimate area. It also comes in handy All-Day Care Wipes for on-the-go feminine care.

Lactacyd Cool and Fresh, helps women stay pleasantly protected and confident with its longer-lasting freshness4. Made with menthol essences and milk extracts, this clear and mildly soothing variant effectively provides cooling and longer-lasting freshness against the sticky-icky feeling down there.

Nice to know, right?  Personally, I would reach out for the Lactacyd White Intimate, Lactacyd Revitalize or Lactacyd Cool and Fresh.  What would you reach out for?

K-Pub Side A/Freestyle Concert: Worth it!

Posing with Side A Lead Singer Joey G

Hi!  How was your weekend?  Mine was fun!  I had couples night dinner last Saturday at Urbn with my husband and his friends and their wives.  We had fun catching up with each other and a little side chisms on the man with an H in his name Vhong Navarro who brought "foods" to Deniece.

side a concert at k pub

After dinner we moved to K-pub for the Side-A and Freestyle concert.  Upon entry,  we were so tempted to ask the waiter to tone down the music but reminded ourselves, it's a bar, it's meant to be loud.  Hirap magkwentuhan!  Freestyle was fun, as they sang a mix of old and new songs, but of course,  era ko ang Side A so I went crazy when they finally took the stage.  It was a trip down memory lane as they sang all those familiar tunes from "Di pa Huli" to "Take on Me".  Side A can still hold a crowd.  The only thing that bothered us was the base was too strong it was drowning the lyrics plus a couple of times the mic made that loud screeching noise.

The concert started at 10pm and gave each band an hour each on the stage, with a 20 minute interval between the 2 bands.   At P500 inclusive of 2 drinks of your choice (cocktails or beer or regular drink),  it was definitely worth it.  I was comparing the price to those Valentine dinner dates starting at P2,500 and this one was definitely a steal.

Till the Next Gimmick!
