Tieks: The Ultimate Shoes for Nurses

February 28, 2016

Tieks: The Ultimate Shoes for Nurses

It’s a common struggle for nurses: you get tired of wearing the same old sneakers just because they’re supportive, so you try the newest “best brand ever” only to find out they have all the same problems of past shoes you’ve tried. When I first noticed everyone wearing Tieks, I assumed it would be the same story, even though they all had nothing but good things to say.

For those of you unfamiliar with the brand, Tieks are luxury ballet flats that are known for going above and beyond. I knew several nurses who had already been wearing Tieks ballet flats, but with a base price of $175, they’re definitely a splurge purchase for me. I decided to do a little more research before taking the plunge. After reading through the company’s site, I was impressed by both the craftsmanship and the brand authenticity. It was time for me to try them out myself!

Tieks are crafted from fine Italian leather. I knew they had tons of colors to choose from, and everyone at work has good things to say about wearing them. In total, I’ve probably spent more than an hour just looking at the various styles, colors, and texture options that they offer!
I also LOVE the “Play With Color” search function they have on their homepage – it helped me finally come to a decision of Navy and Bronze!
Metallic Bronze
California Navy
I wanted to make sure I selected the right size. With my current spine and hip issues I am VERY cautious when purchasing anything that could cause MORE pain since I already have enough of that to go around. I took the time to check in and talk with customer service team – they were incredibly quick to respond and SO helpful!
Tieks only come in whole sizes, and they suggest sizing down if you normally wear a half-size (unless you have a wide foot or sometimes size up in other shoes). Their exchange policy is worry-free, so you take no risk in trying out the smaller size. If it isn’t right, you just notify them that you need a different size, and they’ll ship it immediately. They also cover the return shipping of your original pair!
My Tieks arrived within two days of placing my order, and I instantly recognized why this brand is so successful. The packaging was sooo cute and well thought out! I felt like I was unwrapping a present! And who doesn’t love presents?
While opening my present (to myself, from myself), it’s clear that so much love goes into, not only the creation of the shoes, but the packaging and delivery as well! Inside they provide a personalized handwritten note (which absolutely blew me away!), along with care instructions, and two storage pouches. I can tell this company truly values their customers and goes above and beyond to show it.
From the elastic flower ribbon band (which you can totally use as a hair accessory) to the unforgettable Tiek Blue Box.

I had seen many avid fans claim that Tieks are the comfiest and the greatest investment ever, but I will admit that before getting my pair I was a little skeptical!

I thought, there is NO way that’s possible – right?  I mean, my shoes NEED to be “comfy.” When I say “comfy,” I mean orthopedically-designed, tried, tested and proven little-gems that literally help to reverse the unnatural and unprecedented amount of walking, running, standing, squatting, lifting, and pulling that a New Graduate Labor and Delivery nurse goes through on a daily basis.

I needed shoes cute and comfortable enough for me to stand on my feet during a 12.5-hour shift, which always seems to turn into a 13-14 hour shift, while preventing any foot pain PLUS the added feat of not adding to my back pain.

Nurses, physicians, healthcare professionals and teachers (basically everyone who stands on their feet for large portions of their day) know that not wearing the proper foot attire can, and will, cause increased foot pain and/or cramps.

However, I am not sure that everyone knows this: standing all day without the proper foot-support leads to imbalances in posture. These imbalances are the LEADING CAUSE of chronic pain, especially back pain. If not corrected these imbalances will lead to long-term, chronic issues that are difficult, painful, time consuming and extremely expensive to rectify.

My California Navy Tieks match my scrubs perfectly!

The first true test for me was how my Tieks would hold up on my regular 12.5 hour shift. Well, not only did they hold up through my entire shift and keep my feet, legs, hips, and back pain-free, but they were also the source of many compliments!
It’s no surprise that Tieks are such a great solution to this comfort dilemma of mine. Tieks have advanced foam cushioning in the heel and insoles that provide your feet with comfort throughout the day, even during long-term wear. They also have non-skid rubber soles, which are exactly what I need to prevent clumsy slides around the slick hospital floors.
My Metallic Bronze Tieks are perfect for a long day at the hospital and transition easily to a night out with girlfriends.
A few days later, I went out to grab some drinks with friends after work, and I didn’t even switch into my boots! In reality, I didn’t want to switch into my boots — my Tieks were just too cute and comfy to take off!
IF I suddenly felt compelled to switch into my boots or heels, I could have kept my Tieks folded up in my purse easily.
Tieks’ signature split-sole allows you to fold them right in half for simple storage. There’s never been such a convenient way to alleviate the suffering of the one + two combo that my 13 hours shifts and heels ultimately cause on my body.

So, recap!

These perfect little well-designed ballet-flats will send your soles to heaven (get it?).

  1. Tieks are a sound investment, without a doubt.
  2. Comfort is off the charts
  3. They’re super durable so they’ll last you!
  4. The craftsmanship is superb
  5. Easy Returns/Exchanges policy: I mean this makes it a NO-brainer ladies.

All of these reasons should have you online browsing all their super cute colors, like right now…..hmmm, maybe Olive Green or Leopard or Ballerina Pink?

Gift Tieks

I’m telling you, this is your GO-TO GIFT for your hard-working nurse-girlfriend, your exhausted-physician friend, your newly graduated med-student daughter, your over-worked anybody. Since you will likely want to wear them as soon as you receive them (like I did), you’ll be happy to know they have a cushioned back as well.

This doesn’t mean just softer support on your Achilles ladies – this also means it’s unlikely that you’ll get any blisters on the backs of your heels when you start wearing these bad boys!

Traveling With My Tieks

For your next travel adventure, check out my Tieks: Travel in Fashion AND Comfort post here. I detail how I still manage to look chic while traveling and keep my back pain in check.

I wear my Tieks through the airport. They are perfect “slip-on and slip-offs” to help you slide on through security, and if necessary to wear my “clunkiest” pair of shoes through the airport (for packing reasons:) my Tieks are SUCH an easy pack for my trips, I mean look how small they are!

Have any of you tried out Tieks yet? I’d LOVE to hear your thoughts on them and what color you think I should try next?! Comment below with your love and light.

Disclaimer: I bought my Tieks with my own money. All thoughts shared in this post are my own.

JOSHUA TREE

5 Unique Activities That Will Make You Head to Joshua Tree This Spring

Your Joshua Tree Adventure Awaits!

Joshua Tree is an other-worldly desert landscape. It is conveniently located only 125 miles east of Los Angeles, in the Mojave desert.

Joshua Tree Zoomed out

This desert gem is the perfect place to stop, reflect, and simply be with the natural world around you. But there is so much to do while reflecting, it’s hard to fit everything into one weekend trip!

So here are my top 5 unique activities and adventures when I visit in Joshua Tree National Park!

1. Hike Jumbo Rocks

joshua tree to do skull rock jumbo rocks campground

Skull Rock is a popular destination at Joshua Tree State Park. Over many years, rock erosion caused two hollowed-out sockets to form in a large rock, which created the appearance of a skull. This 1.7 mile hike provides great opportunities for photos and is very easily accessible to those staying at the Jumbo Rocks Campground. You will not want to miss taking photos of Skull Rock, or throughout the hike up to the famous stone.

2. Experience The Integratron

 

joshua tree to do skull rock jumbo rocks campground

About 16 miles outside of Joshua Tree, the Integratron is a creative and spiritual-awakening experience. It’s signature experience is the Sound Bath, where guests experience auditory magic as they relax, rejuvenate, and heal. The hour-long introspective journey takes you into a deep meditative state and through many different stages of consciousness and self-awareness. It is truly a unique and unforgettable experience.

3. Stargaze at Jumbo Rocks Campground

 

joshua tree to do skull rock jumbo rocks campground

Before the last rays of the sun disappear, head over to Jumbo Rocks Campground and set up a camp of blankets off the path to see the most gorgeous spectacle of stars appear right in front of you. If you are coming from a city that is over polluted with lights, the star-filled night sky will be even more magical! This sea of stars is a brilliant photo opportunity and sure to be an experience to remember for the rest of your life.

4. Visit Pioneertown

Pioneertown is a unique “town” that’s about 17 miles from Joshua Tree State Park. It’s an old western movie set and offers plenty of great photo ops. The best time hands-down for photos in Pioneertown is at sunset, so be sure to have your camera ready once the sun start going down.

5. Eat at Pappy & Harriet’s

So if you are headed to J Tree for less than 48 hours I would highly recommend all of the above. If you have more time in the area or simply want to see ALL of your options, check out Your Ultimate Guide to Joshua Tree National Park.

Cross-Country Skiing to Glacier Point: Your Ultimate Guide to Glacier Point During Winter http://www.getoutofla.com/cross-country-ski-to-glacier-point-yosemite-in-winter-ultimate-guide/ Mon, 16 Jan 2017 16:00:00 +0000 http://www.getoutofla.com/?p=27464 The post Cross-Country Skiing to Glacier Point: Your Ultimate Guide to Glacier Point During Winter appeared first on Out of LA.

]]>

Ok, so let’s talk about the Bucket List.

I have not yet been strong enough or in-shape enough, after my back injury, to come any where CLOSE to making this EPIC journey; however, I have been creepily planning it for over two years and I thought I’d share my knowledge because every time I bring it up I get the same response, “WHAT!? You can x-country ski and/or snowshoe to a ski hut at the top of Glacier Point! And get Glacier Point all to yourself!?…..AND stay amongst the spirit’s of legends like John Muir and his buddies!?…. No way! Let’s do it!”

Unfortunately for me I haven’t been in shape enough to make this epic trek, yet. But the good news for me though is that I am in the beginning stages of training with my PT with the HIGH hopes to soon be strong enough to check this adventure off my proverbial “bucket list”! Woo hoo.

Yosemite in Winter is pure magic! I have been twice and I truly can’t get enough. This here is an epic adventure that I personally can’t wait to go on and I am currently training to be able to accomplish such a trek. If you are in shape and need a creative spark to your weekend getaway, or need some great tips on what to do in Yosemite, or simply want to know about the BEST kept secret in our National Parks, well then keep on reading!

You can also head over to my blog post here for even more options for experiencing Yosemite in the winter; most importantly these are options that don’t entail a 21 mile hike in the snow! eeek.

Yosemite National Park

Reaching from its lowest point in the Yosemite Valley to its highest point of 13,114 feet atop Mount Lyell in the Cathedral Range, Yosemite National Park offers every kind of vista imaginable.

Yosemite is home to scenes from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the epic disaster film 2012 and most definitely your Instagram feed, thanks to photography legends like Chris Burkard and Christian Schaffer. So there’s no doubt that most of you are well aware of this National Park’s breathtaking backdrops.

Glacier Point in the Summer

During the summer months, Glacier Point is an easy “hike”, if you will, as you park your car and walk a few feet. Glacier Point offers the best viewpoints in Yosemite, and possibly the world.

Glacier Point is not as high as the striking granite monolith Half Dome (seen below); however it provides a perfect vantage point for taking in all of it’s wonder. With views of the Valley floor below and Yosemite High Country above Glacier Point is the perfect spot to snap some epic photos.

The best part of all is that you can reach this view with minimal effort. Glacier Point is easily reached in the warmer months of June-November by a simple drive up the Tioga Pass. So yes, only a 30 minute drive from Badger Pass will give you this breathtaking view.

Glacier Point in Winter

Come mid-November snow forces the closure of the Tioga Pass to auto-mobile traffic (Check here for current and up to date road conditions.) However, if you are hoping to catch this view in the months where the roads are closed, fear not. Although it does require MUCH more effort, it does not rule out your chances of experiencing Glacier Point! This does, however, rule out the easy option, but that only means you will have the place to yourself!

In winter, the only way to reach Glacier Point is via a truly unforgettable experience of cross-country skiing or snowshoe. This adventurous option entails a 10.5-mile-long trek from the Yosemite Ski & Snowboard Area to the Ski Hut at the top of Glacier Point.

“If there’s a better secret in the entire national park system, I can’t wait to find it.”

Will Rochfort of BackPacker.com

Before you begin…

Prior to setting off on your epic cross-country ski trip to Glacier Point, there are a few important points to consider.

This trip isn’t the best idea for newbies in cross-country skiing, but inexperienced skiers needn’t miss out altogether. I will give you some tips to help you remain happy and healthy, mentally and physically, so that you can enjoy it, and still be safe!

If you aren’t an experienced skier but don’t want to miss out on ticking this off your bucket list, I recommend that you book a pro-guide to give you some help and most importantly, keep you safe.

Here’s what Yosemite National Park has to say about preparation and wants you to know:

“In frigid winter conditions, poor planning can lead to life-threatening situations. Plan ahead, be prepared for blizzard-like conditions, bring extra food and water, and pack more layers than you think you’ll need.

All guests must check-in at both the Yosemite Ski & Snowboard Area Nordic Ski Center and the National Park Service A-frame before starting a trip to the Glacier Point Ski Hut.

The National Park Service will provide the necessary Wilderness Permit and Parking Permit.”

Acclimatization

Before and after your trek, the National Park Service recommends that you stay in Yosemite Valley, 4,000 feet above sea level, to help you acclimate to the altitude.

Travel and Health Tip:

One way to help your body acclimatize is by increasing your water intake several days before your trip. This enables you to stay hydrated as you adjust to the lower oxygen levels. Let’s be honest; there is nothing worse than getting ready for the experience of a lifetime and getting altitude sickness, so make sure you prepare your body for the change.

There are three options to conquer this trek:

  1. Out & back day-trip
  2. Guided overnight trip
  3. Self-guided overnight trip

1) Out & Back Day-Trip

The 21 mile out and back day trip is not for the faint-hearted but is pure beauty the whole way. Always keep track of your time and be aware of how much energy you have, so you can make good decisions and stay safe.

As you ski the 10.5 miles, don’t forget to take a break to visit some of the best viewpoints along the trail. At mile 6, make sure you stop at the Clark Range Overlook to get an unobstructed view of the High Sierras. At mile 10, a pit-stop at Washburn Point allows you to admire an unreal view of Half Dome.

Both of these provide fabulous opportunities for photo-ops, so don’t forget your camera!

Once you reach the ridge-top at the Sentinel Dome cut-off, it’s just 1 ½ miles downhill to your turn-back point. It takes the average experienced cross-country skier four to five hours to complete the 10.5 miles there and another four to five hours to complete the trip back.

2) Guided Overnight Trip

The trails are pristine and the one-day trip is incredible but at the peak of Glacier Point sits the real gem, the Glacier Point Ski Hut. During the summer, the ski hut serves as a touristy souvenir shop and in the winter, it transforms into a cozy getaway spot for those who opt for the overnight option. Here, there are restrooms, comfortable sofas and a large bunk-bed dorm that sleeps up to 20 people.




Photo Cred

During the overnight tour, adventurers are provided with all meals including a group dinner with your new friends around a bonfire. This is great because it gives you a chance to get to know the people experiencing this epic journey alongside you, in a more comfortable setting. As I am sure the hours preceding dinner you were concentrating on not dying, staying alive, and resisting the urge to hurl rocks at your significant other and/or travel buddy.

In the morning, a warm, hearty breakfast awaits as you prepare for the 10.5 miles back to the Yosemite Ski and Snowboard area. To top it off, all the food at the Glacier Point Ski Hut is home-made to give you that extra push while completing your journey.

The guided tours depart at 9:00am from the Yosemite Ski & Snowboard Area Cross-Country Center and ends….at the top, of course!

3) Travel to Glacier Point Your Own Way

Only STRONG, experienced skiers are encouraged to ski to Glacier Point Ski Hut without a guide. All skiers are welcome to join in on the festivities, including: dinner, an evening in front of the fire, a beds, as well as breakfast and lunch before the ski out.

Photo Cred – Chris Burkard

“We didn’t sleep here.. we shivered in our sleeping bags with eyes closed while our pads slowly deflated and the cold crept in through our tent. At a certain point you don’t really mind how close you are to your tent mates. Body warmth is all that matters. Funny how those memories stick with you.

The surreal view near Glacier point is anything but empty in summer. But winter season provides the opportunity to camp in solitude amidst Yosemite’s most iconic overlook. Long as you’re off-trail and have a backcountry permit you are good too freeze in a tent where you want.”

– Chris Burkard 

Be warned that the Hut is only open for lodging in the winter. Reservations are required and must be done by phone so call (209) 372-8444 to book. There is a six person minimum in order for the hut to open.

Cost
  • One-Night Guided Ski Hut Trip: $350.00 per person
  • Two-Night Guided Ski Hut Trip: $550.00 per person
  • Self-guided Glacier Point Ski Hut: $153.00 pp per night + rentals and gratuity

Yosemite Valley offers a truly special ski trip to Glacier Point Ski Hut and its breathtaking views. So plan your trip accordingly, leave with enough time to get to the top by sunset.


Photo Credit

Just imagine it though! Once you’re sitting around a fire at 3,200 feet with the stars twinkling above you and the sun setting in the distance, I promise you’ll look back on this memory for the rest of your life with a heart full of gratitude!

Sometimes it is hard to get into the Holiday spirit when the temperature is in the 70’s. No snowy nights to put you in the Christmas Spirit. However, there are plenty of things you can do to get yourself in the Holiday mood in and around LA. I have made a list for you to pick and choose your next adventure! So, gather up your loved ones and plan your Holiday festivities.

1. Santa Monica Pub Crawl

I recommend this to everyone! It is tonight so hurry and get your friends together.

You’ve walked, donated and volunteered all in the name of charity. Now, here’s your chance to drink for those in need. Gather your friends and join other do-gooders at the 6th annual Santa Monica Pub Crawl. A $15 admittance fee ($20 at the door), benefitting the Westside Food Bank, allows you to participate in one of four routes around Santa Monica to experience drink and food specials at some of the city’s best spots, including Tacoteca, Cabo Cantina, Ye Olde King’s Head, The Albright and more. Sign up online and collect a wristband on the day of the event. Then crawl from spot to spot on foot or enjoy a discount on the Big Blue Bus where $4 allows you to ride all night long. Dress up in a holiday-themed costume and even take on the Santa Scavenger Challenge Hunt with your friends to earn a prize. Crawlers can download the official “SM Pub Crawl” app for a complete list of bars, routes, specials, map, bus stops and updates. Visit here to get all the details

2.     Experience the “Snow” at The Grove

Although L.A. hasn’t had real snow since 1962, The Grove turns into a winter wonderland from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. every night as “snowflakes” fall from the sky. There really isn’t a more magical way to shop for holiday presents than in the snow, except here you won’t be freezing.

3.     Real Snow in Julian

If The Grove’s fake snow isn’t doing it for you, just a little south and inland from LA, you can find the charming little town of Julian. While you’re up there, you won’t see a person without a pie in hand from the famous Julian Pie Company or a jug of homemade apple cider.

OOLA’s Insider tip: a picture from Larry at Old Time Costume Photography makes for the best holiday card that will keep you smiling for years to come.

4.   Mountain High Resort

Only 90 miles from downtown Los Angeles is a breathtaking winter resort in the San Gabriel Mountains.  Mountain High is three resorts in one. You can visit East, West, and North to find different terrain that will challenge every level of skier. This ski resort offers skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing to entertain you for hours, and even days.

 5.   Holiday Ice Rink at Pershing Square

When you think of L.A., you don’t normally think of ice skating. However, they have created a winter wonderland right in the middle of the Downtown skyscrapers. If you have a yearning to glide around the rink pretending there is snow on the ground, take curling lessons, or enjoy a Disco Skate and DJ nights.

6.   Los Angeles Zoo Lights

This is one of the best traditions in L.A. that gets better each year. Take an evening stroll through the zoo that has been transformed by lasers, 3-D projections, and water/light displays timed to the music. There are light-monkeys running amok, a giant origami rhino, a giant glowing snake, and of course the real reindeer in the Reindeer Village. You can even enjoy a blacklight party in the reptile house. Don’t forget to get your holiday treats and hot chocolate to round out the evening. This is a must-see event!

7. Marina Del Rey Boat Parade

This event is December 10th, so get everyone together and head on over!

Feel as though you’ve escaped to a small-town fishing village with the 52nd anniversary of the Marina Del Rey Boat Parade. Bring a blanket and gather around Fisherman’s Village or the Burton Chace Park to watch as the 70 boats glide through the marina with holiday lights and decorations competing to win the top prize. Categories include Best Theme, Best Animation, Best Band, Best Lights and more. The festivities begin at 5:55 pm with fireworks and the boat parade starts at 6 pm, rain or shine.

8. Holiday Lights

No Christmas season would be complete without the traditional car ride looking at Holiday lights. There are too many places to list in this post, so click here for a detailed list. Let the Holiday festivities begin!

9. Lights on Display at Sherman Oaks

Sherman Oaks resident, Mike Ziemkowski, takes Christmas decorating to another level at his annual Christmas lights display. ‘Lights on Display’ draws admirers from all over the county as his front yard transforms into a brilliant lights display. He has timed the lights to the music to further your enjoyment. If you’re looking for a top-notch lights display, this is definitely the place to go.

I hope you will enjoy, if not all, at least a few of these events. As always, I am looking forward to hearing about your adventures and seeing your excellent pictures. Feel free to post them on the Facebook page!
