Let’s face it, we all want to live life absorbed in confidence and happiness. Now, whether you want to admit it or not, a large factor in that is your appearance. The way people perceive us, and more importantly, the way we perceive ourselves, is essential in feeling confident, empowered and beautiful.

Luckily, in today’s advanced world, there are plenty of methods to enhance your natural beauty, and a great place to start is your skin. Why? Because healthy skin can transform you into a totally different person.

But, I’ve found that as you reach 40, it’s very difficult to find skin products that are both nice to use and will have a noticeable impact. So, when an amazing company called Esthederm sent me a hyaluronic mask and a mist water product, I was obviously quite sceptical in regard to the effect they could have on my skin.

After using them, though, I can’t speak highly enough of them. The hyaluronic mask is extremely smooth on your face, and it leaves your skin feeling soft, revitalised and glowing. It works by boosting collagen synthesis and retaining skin moisture to prevent against skin aging.

The mist water performs in a slightly different way; by applying the mist water on your face, you’ll prepare your skin to absorb all the ingredients of other moisturises much better than it normally would.

Ultimately, it’s all about keeping your skin hydrated. Personally, I tend to use the products at night and the results have been exceptional. Just looking in the mirror puts a smile on my face, simply because the Esthederm products have enhanced my skin massively. Moreover, I love the fact that the brand prides themselves on being cruelty free.

Nowadays, it’s very easy for skincare brands to manufacture products that are the same as everything else on the market. That’s why it’s incredible that they’ve added a unique element to their products by going down the cruelty free route. Oh, and of course, their products are second-to-none which is the most important thing.

If you’re struggling to take care of your skin, or you just want to give your appearance a boost, then I’d most definitely recommend checking out Esthederm. To make life easy for you, I’ve listed their Instagram account and their website below…

How to Love our Bodies as Disabled People.

MASSAGE samanta bullock kuschall wheelchair model
Kuschall
Hello my gorgeous friends.
We all need to love and respect our bodies.  In the end, it is our bodies that give us the platform to live and perform at our best in this world. A body full of energy is still one of our goals in these days of fast food, lack of sleep and not much moving around. Also, the concept that we need all be ‘the same’ as the prototype that the magazines sell  “skinny, white, young” … Am I wrong? The other day I watched a video on Youtube talking about it and showing A+B that what I am saying seems to be true.
As a wheelchair user, I will tell you my experience and things I do to love not only my body but also myself. When we are disabled sometimes the lack of feeling in a limb or limbs make us ignore that part of our body.
Firstly, many times I tend to ignore my leg that I don’t feel as a result of my spinal cord injury, so what I do is I try to pay attention to it. As you probably know right now I love to have a bath every day (when its possible) and there I will massage, soap, and try somehow to interact with that leg. I also like to have a massage and I know budgets can be tight sometimes and massage is not the cheapest thing in the world, but you can offer a shared massage.  You massage someone and they do it back, as a friend, a partner, your mum etc… It is also a nice way to be in contact with other people.

I know my leg is thin and it bothers me sometimes, but there nothing I can do, apart from to try to move it as much I can. I do look at myself in the mirror and I say in a loud voice, ‘I love you, I respect you and I will do all I can for you to have a good and long life. I love you! I look straight into my eyes and also at my legs, making the point that they are part of me and I love them the way they are.  Another form of showing love is caring, so I try to move my legs as much as I can so they will have the amount of exercise that they need as I am always in moving but most of the time my legs are static. Cycling, swimming and yoga are activities that I can do to make sure my legs are “alive”.

It is a fact that our legs will get thin unless we move them or you have spasms etc.  I always thought with me it won’t happen to me, but it did, and it will keep doing. Calcium is another important point, mainly if you are a woman and after the age of 40 let’s say calcium levels go down considerably. I have calcium supplements and Vitamin D too as London is not the sunniest city in the world.  There is not often the opportunity to sunbathe. Things I do in general is to have a nightly routine, where I apply my creams, light a nice candle and burn some oil to relax and enjoy myself with a nice cup tea or occasionally a glass of wine (why not) or a drink of your preference. I also love Kombucha as you probably know too.

I like to have this 10 minutes before going to bed to “meditate” (pray) and be in contact with my inner self and I try to remember that this life, after all, is a play and we won’t be here for long. So I don’t judge myself and try to understand that everyone is on their own path trying to be happy some how. So laugh and enjoying the moment is a must do every day.

These are only a few things I do but if you like to know more about my self-care and how I build my confidence let me know in the comments and I will write another article for you.

The House of Radha – Fashion through Music

Hello guys.
samanta bullock radha wheelchair model disability When I say fashion is getting more inclusive could be that I am being optimistic, and I am, but a few years ago we would imagine brands to be contacting our working with disabled models. Its where I came to give them a voice and help them to make sure there are making the right thing making clothes for everyone.
I had a photo shoot with the wonderful Radha. She is knowing the designer and has been to Paris and Fashions Finest, London Fashion Week and much more with her collection. Her inspiration come through the music, and I am so happy we are working together to empower women.
Here is little about her story you would like to know. samanta bullock radha wheelchair model disability
Radha:
Has a very prestigious history, while the label is still young the designer showcased her first Couture collection in London Fashion Week 2017 and was nominated for Britain’s Top Designer award in Fashion’s Finest.  The Label showcased Alongside Cristiano Ronaldo’s CR7 Collection in MadieraFashionWeekend, Portugal in Spring.  The Designer then went to the debut.
Her second couture collection in Paris Fashion Week, as part of OxfordFashionStudio where her collection “Light Through the Darkness” was received to great acclaim by the international press and Fashion Industry.

The garment should do more than clothe a body, it must become an experience for the wearer.  Fashion is an art, a platform to express feelings of emotion, joy, and sensuality.  samanta bullock radha wheelchair model disability

 

The personal narrative of each piece is a combination of strength, empowerment, and love.  These elements are achieved and captured in the bespoke and unique surface prints.

Customers are made to feel strong, empowered and part of a magical experience that only when you wear one of the handcrafted garments do you appreciate all the love that has gone into each piece. Her collections withhold meaning beyond the fabric, she incorporates aspects such as nature, architecture, cultures, music, and traditions.
The Fashion events even embody the essence of the Label by featuring Catwalk models from diverse backgrounds and cultures to make it a universal show and everyone being equal on the fashion runway.  Music has been and still is a strong influence on the designer’s work and life.  Radha spent time in the beautiful island of Ibiza where she was inspired by the music and culture.

Music and dance are celebrated by each individual and this then takes one to a place of euphoria and to feel the positive energy and vibes. This is why she developed the Label to celebrate both the House Music and Fashion that brings a connection through each and every one of us.
