Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

My Scholl Autumn Winter 2012 Shopping Experience

11.14.2012

do you love...

your soles?


Anyone knows what's Plantar Fasciitis? About 3 years ago my right feet hurt so much that I started limping for a month. When I went to the doctor, he told me I had Plantar Fasciitis. Walking became painful, I would not come out at all. Shoppers at Isetan, KLCC saw a limping girl shopping during Christmas Sale, dragging her feet from one stall to another. It took me more than a month to heal (what an episode).




Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the thick tissue on the bottom of the foot. This tissue is called the plantar fascia. It connects the heel bone to the toes and creates the arch of the foot. Plantar fasciitis occurs when the thick band of tissue on the bottom of the foot is overstretched or overused.

You are more likely to get plantar fasciitis if you have:
  • Foot arch problems (both flat feet and high arches)
  • Long-distance running, especially running downhill or on uneven surfaces
  • Sudden weight gain or obesity
  • Tight Achilles tendon (the tendon connecting the calf muscles to the heel)
  • Shoes with poor arch support or soft soles

Since then I have been careful, changing my footwear to comfortable flats, slippers, sandals and only occasionally wearing high heels or boots if the occasions calls for it.  One of my favorite brands to go for is Scholl. I bought my first pair for work during their sale at Sogo. It became my favorite so I kept buying the same pair (insane). I was thrilled when Scholl invited me to shop and review their Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection at the Scholl, Paradigm Mall.

I'm so loving the floral designs, especially...

the fuchsia flower slipper!


Festive Ladies was not available yet
(so I decided on selecting slippers instead)

I'm interested in the Biomechanics techonology


Scholl explains the footwear technologies

Scholl has been in the industry for over 100 years in more than 70 countries, founded by Dr. William Mathias Scholl (now u know how Scholl got its name). There's a long history about how he created his first remarkable invention, the Foot-Eazer that change the foot health care industry. People recognized Scholl as the comfort footwear with different technologies to suit our foot needs. Understanding the Scholl's unique foot bed feature, you will be able to select one suitable to wear.

>> BIOPRINT
It conforms to the natural contours of your feet for optimum comfort. Supporting the arch & heel, it absorbs the shock generated by every step and provides different levels of pressure and support to each part of the foot.

>> STARLIT: SHAPE YOUR MOVEMENT

not bad right? wonder which one I should buy

let's not forget the men's range that has Arch Support

this Scholl ad is so cute!


love your feet, take home these accessories

you'd be surprise that Scholl is for everyone
Handsome Qua Chee, Elegant Fatin, Street-style Tammy & Innocent Lisa

With so many varieties of footwear cater for every concern or need. I couldn't decide on the perfect pair. What I know is if you bring a family here, Scholl has everything for a young girl to a working adult and for a senior who needs that much ankle and knee support. Studying my feet history, I decided to go for... 

which range did I buy & why?


daily walking shoes from Biomechanics range


elegant style Emma with BioPrint technology


reasons why I choose Biomechanics


Wearing high heels - Scholl Biomechanics


total waking comfort with BioPrint


I bought the one in the middle
and Emma with BioPrint technology

Finally after hours of controlling myself from buying whatever that pleases my eyes, I decided that my feet needed the Biomechanics slipper to reduce and relieve heel and ankle pain. It would be a good investment for my feet-ture (feet + future) plus it also helps to realign my posture. It wasn't from the Autumn/Winter Collection but it was still selling in store since it's one of the best-selling technologies at Scholl. My Autumn/Winter choice was no other than Emma in red and gold buckles. Emma has the BioPrint technology where with prolong use, the foot bed will conform to the shape of my feet so that my daily walks will be comfortable and stylish at the same time :)

understanding what your feet needs for a better tomorrow

It also gives me the support I needed for my arch and heel to avoid having that horrible pain experience again. Every step I take, the foot bed absorbs the shock generated. Having being a heavy person, this helps a lot to give me the support and pressure my feet needs. I have been walking in them for 2 weeks now, even under the rain! (so far no odor yet thank goodness). I could see the shape of the foot bed, which is interesting to me. It's my first time wearing footwear with a technology like this. It's comfortable to wear and I don't need to be embarrassed for not wearing high-heels because the red and gold combination, makes it so elegant for semi-casual look :) 

at Banyan Tree Spa, Solaris Dutamas

Of course wearing comfortable footwear is not just the only thing you can do for your feet. I regularly go for foot reflexology and foot massage to give them a well deserved pampering after a tiring day of walking up and down, here and about. Foot massages help increase blood circulation and ease the tension as well. After a good rub, I'll slip on my red Scholl and head back home to call it a day.
