Family weekend – Wheelchair Lifestyle

Family weekend – Wheelchair Lifestyle

I came to live in England 11 years ago because my husband is English. At that moment it was what made sense for us, as I was playing tennis and I could live in anywhere in the world and travel to tournaments.

When we met my nieces were very young. Anna was 6 months Emily was two years old. I loved the girls from the start and my husbands family became my family as it should be. Emily is now a teenager and Anna is eleven,  and we love to spend time together.samanta bullock wheelchair model suffolk family hand bike

All of our English family is from Suffolk and I took the opportunity of the bank holiday weekend and a ballet performance to make a vlog and show you guys a little bit of our routine with the ones we love deeply.

I am very happy to share with you the activities we did over the weekend.

My Transformation with Evidence Beauty, Max Hair Salon & Jessica Favaro

New hair.

Life goes by and sometimes we enter into the routine of doing the same thing over and over again. The routine overtakes us and everything stays on automatic. We may need to stop there and make a change…a new start, a diverse way to see the world, to act and to interact. On this point I am happy to count on wonderful professionals that always help me to connect and rediscover my inner self, bringing me to life and to my point of excellence.

We need to take a break and look after the parts of our body that takes us everywhere. Sheila, you are an amazing friend and an amazing professional. I am happy to have you in my path. She always brings me the best chimarrao ( Brazilian Herbal Tea) that makes me feel at home.

For a full change I opted to change my hair colour a little and I left it to Julio Rosario, ‘The Wizard of Hair’. Max and Julio are looking after my hair now for the past year.  They did my hair for Fashions Finest in February this year and they always make sure I have a trendy hairstyle for the catwalk. They use the best products and always have lovely smiles on their faces. Even when they are very busy they will find a time to look after my hair. This time he opted to leave me with a special glow in a golden honey style. I would not give my hair to anyone, especially to do highlights that is a process where we need to always be careful as it can damage the hair very badly, but with these guys, I would trust with closed eyes. I also cut it to give more balance.

After I am done Julio won’t permit me to leave without a completely new look and that is where Jessica Favaro comes in. She gives classes for makeup artists and she makes a canvas on our face and transforms it into the most beautiful portrait ever. Every detail counts to her. At the end it is perfection.

I hope you can see all of this in the video and make your own conclusions.  Love you guys and thank you for looking after me with such care.
