FAMILY FINDS: FOR MOM: Look Good, Feel Good by Robin Gorman Newman

Periodically, I blog about cool stuff I want to share.  Here's my take on some fashions and more for exercise or relaxation.  Check out the following, as gifts for yourself or others on your list:

Winter is approaching, but if you plan a warm weather vacation or enjoy indoor swimming (as I do), then you might want to check out OKA b. footwear (   Their 2010 Winter Collection of sandals, thongs, flip-flops and slides is inspired by the calming tones of the Mediterranean seascape. Known for its spa-like craftsmanship of shoes that pamper the foot, OKA b.’s Winter Collection offers a stylish, affordable and comfortable alternative to traditional flip flops or beach sandals.  New styles include the Bailey, a T-strap thong embellished with earthy metal coin flowers in colors such as Aged Gold, Copper and Nickel, the chic Kimberly in Licorice and Popsicle, adorned with black patent leather flowers, or the classic Bridget in another new color offering, There is even a bridal collection.. As with all of OKA b.’s stylish footwear, shoes in the Winter Collection feature the company’s signature reflexology inspired massage beads and ergonomic footbeds, are waterproof, antibacterial and seamlessly designed, made in the USA from one piece of the company’s proprietary recyclable Microplast™ material. Prices range from $20 to $40.

The Girls is a fitness brand that offers a special blu-tech fabric system constructed with the highest quality yarns and just the right formula of nylon and spandex, that helps to slim, shape and contour the body. Found only in The Girls™ Tummy Control styles, this special power mesh system is discreetly placed inside the clothing invisible to the rest of the world so only you know it is there. The Girls can be purchased at:  Embraced by celebrities, The Girls line comes in varying styles for varying body types.  Whether you're a gym girl, a fashion girl, a yoga girl, or a cafe girl, The Girls Apparel clothing lines will take you through all the activities that make up your day - in style and comfort.

Heavenly Acupressure Mats are an easy and affordable way to enjoy the benefits of acupressure in the comfort of your own home. Each mat is made from 100% cotton, and has a total of 8820 pain-relieving contact points. Using the mat for just 10 minutes each day promotes relaxation, increased energy levels, and an improved sense of well being.

Flojos’ new “Slip into Fit” active footwear line features rounded-bottom sneakers and sandals that are designed to stimulate muscle activity as you walk, turning a casual stroll into a calf, thigh and glute-toning step class. The lightweight midsole and built-in air pockets make it a breeze for taking your workout to-go. Various styles are available, including the Savannah - a black leather maryjane-style shoe with Velcro ankle strap, decorative white stitching, and curved, toning bottom. For more open-air fitness,  the Tierra features the toning rounded-sole and three Velcro straps.  The light-weight and cardio-ready mesh and leather ATM (pictured above) retails for $57. Also available is the “Sophie,” in white.
