Support Where You Need It Most

Support Where You Need It Most
Beauty Brite Disclosure

I’m a mom of four, and a full time store manager; so I need all the support I can get when it comes to working long days and spending so much time on my feet. Keep reading to see some of the great products I’ve found that give me the much-needed support when I need it the most.

A little over four years ago I was in a car accident that came really close to killing me. I broke three out of four limbs, and spent 6 months in a wheelchair and learning to re-walk after my heel was left shattered. You can learn more about my accident by clicking here. Meaning I now have alot of struggles finding the correct footwear and being able to be on my feet all day. Unfortunately, as a store manager that is exactly what I have to do, so I look for items that can help and that is where I have found some amazing insoles to give me that support.

Alignmed

Align Med is leading the change when it comes to apparel that gives you the support you need. It was truly a game-changer when I found their Full Range Insoles. These gel channeling insoles are so different from other insoles I’ve used before. When you walk you can feel the cushion, and where most other insoles are bulky these are only 1mm thick and you hardly know they are there. One of the key benefits of these insoles are that they help to increase your circulation in your feet. Which after my foot had been completely reconstructed I need all the help I can get with that. I think my favorite part of these full-range insoles is that I can even wear them with flip-flops!

Full Range Insoles

My next favorite product by Align Med is their Posture Sports Bra. It doesn’t matter if your lifting boxes at work or lugging my kids around my back is always taking the brunt of the stress. This sports bra has made a world of difference. You can see the change in posture from just a regular bra. I’m no longer in pain when I come home from the end of the day. I love the fact that the bra has wide shoulder straps, I don’t have to worry about it digging into my shoulders. This bra comes in four different colors and is front closing making it so much easier to put on. You can see the amazing results side by side.

When You Have Lost Yourself

When You Have Lost Yourself
Beauty Brite Disclosure

When you finally realize that at some point you have lost yourself. Where do you go to pick yourself back up and start again?

As I look in the mirror the tired eyes look back at me. Dark circles from being up and down all night with a three year old who refuses to sleep in her own bed. My hair loosely tied back with two days worth of dry shampoo. Slouchy clothes, from years before no where close to fitting.

You hear the bigger kids in the other room arguing over who’s watching the tv. You sigh and wash your face as you try to steel yourself for another day. Take a deep breath and do it all over again.

When you have lost yourself

You have lost yourself.

I love my kids, they are the reason I breathe every day but sometimes there are days where the arguing from them drives me up the wall, or they won’t eat dinner after I’ve worked hard to make it. Or when you are just completely touched out. And then the mom guilt kicks in and I feel horrible for feeling that way.

I have four kids ages 9 to 3. There is never a dull moment in my household. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. But I have realized that I had lost myself somewhere in the midst of being a mom. That was who I had become, I was mama, there was no Kansas any longer. My identity revolved around that role.

Brooklyn Cardigan

After so long not taking care of myself I decided it was time to find me again. I started with looking for some functional clothing that helped me be comfy but also look nice and that’s when I found the beautiful Duffield Lane line of clothing. I think my favorite item is the Brooklyn Cardigan. This beautiful Cardigan is so soft and goes with any outfit to keep you warm and looking stylish.

Blaine Dress

And I think my favorite dress that they make is the stunning Blaine Dress. I love how it goes with everything. You can dress it up or pair it down. Perfect for church or a PTA meeting. This dress is flattering on any shape, even mine and it’s hard to find self-love after carrying and birthing four kids. If you are interested in finding your perfect fit or style check out their website, Facebook, or Instagram.

It’s not always easy learning to take care of yourself again. Just know that you are worth it. If you can’t take care of yourself and put your mental health first, it’s going to make it hard to put that into your home. As mom’s, we tend to feel like we have lost yourself and put everyone but yourself first. So mom to mom just let me say…

YOU MATTER!

You are WORTH it.

You are doing an amazing job momma, keep your head up!

You haven’t lost yourself!

I am a single mom to a teen with Autism and I am raising him all on my own.
