Dr. Scholl's DreamWalk Launch with Heidi Klum


On April 2nd, I got an exclusive first look at DreamWalk™ by Dr. Scholl's®, hosted by Heidi Klum in the Blue Room at Gansevoort Park Avenue. During the launch I met with the Dr. Scholl's branding team and learned about DreamWalk's newest product, Fresh & Cool™ Insoles. Dr. Scholl's® and Heidi ended the launch event with a Q&A session, and discussed the balance between comfort and style.

Dr. Scholl's® DreamWalk™ products transforms uncomfortable shoes into wearable ones for all-day comfort and support, from heels to flats to boots and casual shoes. Dr. Scholl's® Dreamwalk™ Fresh & Cool Insoles™ ($9.99) are perfect for summer, helping feet feel cool and dry all day. These insoles have a moisture-wicking, breathable top cloth, cut-out designs promote air circulation, gel pocket in the heels for shock absorption and foam for cushioning and support. They fit comfortably in dress shoes, casual shoes, sneakers and boots.

You'll also notice that Dr. Scholl's® refreshed its look, so you'll see new packaging for the DreamWalk™ line, making it easier to find the product you are looking for.

Here's a look at more products from the Dr. Scholl's® DreamWalk™ collection:

Celebrate Easter with Divine Chocolate

Easter is quickly approaching on April 20th, and as you prepare your Easter baskets, you'll want to include the newest 3.5 oz chocolate bars from Divine Chocolate - 38% Milk Chocolate with Toffee and Sea Salt ($3.99) and Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle ($3.99).  There's also 38% Milk Chocolate with Whole Almonds ($4.89), Dark Chocolate with Whole Almonds ($4.89), 70% Dark Chocolate with Mango & Coconut ($3.99). The 38% Milk Chocolate with Toffee and Sea Salt is my favorite, with the perfect amount of sea salt to balance the sweet toffee crunch.

It's not an Easter celebration without PEEPS®! Whether you are planning to include them in Easter baskets, adding them to your dessert recipes, or eating them right out of the package, you are going to want to check out the latest from PEEPS® seasonal varieties. 

My favorite Easter must-have: the limited edition Yankee Candle PEEPS® Marshmallow Chicks Large Jar Candle ($27.99, 22 oz)! I stumbled upon this fluffy, marshmallow scented candle at the Yankee Candle store last week. The sweet scent reminds me of a mix of marshmallows, vanilla and sugar cookies. 

PEEPS® Chocolate Dipped Mousse Flavored Marshmallow Chicks ($1.99-$2.29) are available in a set of three, dipped in either creamy milk or dark chocolate. They taste great dunked in coffee or alongside iced coffee. 

PEEPS® Chocolate Dipped Marshmallow Chicks are available in either creamy or dark chocolate ($1.99-$2.29), adding a twist to the iconic PEEPS® Chick. 

PEEPS® Chocolate Mousse Flavored Marshmallow Bunnies ($1.29-$1.69)

Another one of my favorites - PEEPS® Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Chicks ($0.79-$0.99) are individually wrapped and covered in milk or dark chocolate.

PEEPS® Large Marshmallow Bunnies are packaged individually ($0.99-$1.29) or in a set of three ($1.09-$1.69), adorned with a bowtie and decorative carrot. 

PEEPS® Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Egg ($2.99-$3.29) contains a classic marshmallow chick inside of a hollow creamy milk chocolate egg, wrapped in either decorative blue or pink foil.
