I was so excited to receive my Samsonite cabin luggage and laptop bag back. The cabin suitcase is personalized and came with my initials “SB” on it. It combines strength with lightness and is perfect for me when travelling only with cabin baggage. In airports and shopping centres I can easily attach the case handle over my backrest and pull it along. The quality is high with a number of great features including a retractable identification label. It has lockable zips and soft touch handles.
The laptop backpack is just what I have been looking for. I wanted a stylish bag that allows me to safely carry my computer. It is made to the very highest standards and has it’s of pockets for all the items that I carry with me on a daily basis. I chose black to match the backrest
of my wheelchair and to provide versatility in matching the clothes I wear.
The “#”s they use in their socials are #generationgo #womensquad #mysamsonite all that I 100% support, please join the conversation.
I made a review on my youtube channel. I will attach the link below. The pictures in this blog are taken by Roy Ikoroha and this lovely red dress is by Vinnette Grant.

Some many assume that it’s difficult to keep your weight in check while in a wheelchair, but losing weight actually revolves heavily around your diet. Of course, staying active and exercising is a key component, which is why I always try to get to the gym each week, but nutrition is the main factor.
There’s a common saying that you can’t out-train a bad diet, and that’s why I focus on eating a healthy diet. Other than being dairy and meat-free, I try to keep everything as balanced as possible, because that’s what allows me to perform at my best. In fact, I don’t eat this way to lose weight, I eat this way as it benefits my body.
Ultimately, you should only attempt to lose weight if you truly want to. If you don’t, then be happy with yourself and love your body, because beauty comes in ALL shapes and sizes. These tips are just to give you some help for improving your diet if you wish…
Pasta is loved by millions across the world, including myself, but excess carbohydrates are stored around the body as fat. So, to keep your carb intake low, then you can make some delicious vegetable pasta with courgettes. Slice it into strips, spiralise it in a pasta machine, and cook it. Then, just top it with your favourite sauce, and you’ll have a lovely meal.
It’s no secret that a lot of people hate vegetables. However, vegetables are a terrific source of nutrients, vitamins and minerals, which will allow you to maintain your good health. Therefore, why not try to consume all of the goodness from vegetables in liquid form instead? You can add vegetables, and accompany them with fruits and other things to improve the flavour.
Banana Ice Cream
Ice cream is one of those things that I love to snack on while watching a great movie or a binge-worthy TV series. Although, traditional ice cream is full of fat, and isn’t recommended for a healthy, balanced diet. But, there are ways to increase the nutritional value of ice cream, and a way that I love is to make my own banana ice cream.
Fruit for Dessert
There’s no denying that having a dessert to finish off your meal is popular, but devouring a chocolate sponge or a sticky toffee pudding won’t do your weight any flavours. So, why not substitute those common, unhealthy desserts with a scrumptious bowl of fresh fruit? You’ll get the same sweet flavours, but without all of the fat!
One of the best ways to satisfy your appetite, and curb any tendencies to snack in between meals, is to enjoy a hot soup. When it comes to soup, its extremely quick and easy to make, and you can choose whichever ingredients you desire. For instance, you could have a basic tomato soup, or you could choose to fill it with tons of different vegetables.
Use these tips for your diet, and they’ll help keep your weight at a level you’re comfortable with. But, remember, you should always be happy and confident with your body no matter what!
When it comes to beauty, the majority of people will tell you that hair is a significant component. So, you could assume that wearing a hat would hinder your overall look. But, in actual fact, something that covers your head can actually enhance your appearance, as well as serve more practical purposes. Nowadays, there is an endless variety of hats to choose from, so you’re bound to find one that suits you, no matter how introvert or extrovert your style is.
However, today I’m going to focus on providing you with four different hats to give you four different looks. They’re all going to be extremely popular pieces of headwear, and all of them could look amazing depending on the scenario. Anyway, here they are…
The wonderful thing about a fedora is the fact that it’s incredibly versatile. All you have to do is alter your clothing and footwear, and a fedora could look gorgeous in spring, summer, autumn or winter. For instance, if you harmonized one with a trench coat, jeans, and a jumper, it would work brilliantly in the lower temperatures. But, if you used one to top off a maxi dress and some sandals, you’d be well dressed for when the sun comes out.
I personally feel that when cadet caps are involved, it ultimately comes down to the hairstyle that you provide as to what look you’ll achieve. So, if you have long hair like me, then you could let it flow behind the ears. But, if you have shorter hair, then why not frizz it up and go for the covered-ears look?
However, it also depends on the weather, like with any hat. If you cover the ears and go for a large coat and some well-fitted jeans, then it would go nicely in the winter or spring. Alternatively, a light top and a skater skirt would work stylishly in the summer.
When it comes to those bitterly cold winter months, beanies are going to be the perfect option. Now, although you’re mainly going to be worrying about keeping your head warm, they can also complement the rest of your attire. I personally love the cashmere beanies from Everlane or Uniqlo. But, I also appreciate the stylish qualities that those colorful knitted ones or those with pom-poms can offer.
There are a few different ways to wear a beanie, but for women, I love the idea of pulling it partially over the ears and forehead and letting the hair flow freely out of it. This way, you can combine both style and functionality.
With the flat cap, you can be flexible with what you’re trying to go for. By this I mean, if you want to match it with your professional attire, then you could keep the cap forward and straight like you can see above. But, if you want to follow the trends and amp up your style at the weekend, then implement a slight tilt. For women, that’s usually to the left, but try to go with what direction your hair is naturally flowing.
I hope you’ve found this article useful, it would be great to know which hat you like most. Please leave a comment below!
