Rua Luja dresses- How do they look?

Hi friends

I have wanted to do this video for a long time now. As you probably know one of my favorite pieces is a long dress. I have a few Rua Luja dresses and I decided to show them to you. I like dresses because I don’t need to be worried about showing my bum as I do when I am wearing jeans. Also, long dresses because of cover my legs.

It is so easy to wake in the morning and wear something easy and posh at the same time. Its kind of put together in less than 2 minutes. I have a post on Rua Luja and my experience with them and Inthink its worth to check it out.

Please let me know your opinions in the comments.

Have a great day. Love Sam x

 

How to Adapt to Being Disabled

How to Adapt to Being Disabled

samanta bullock judge naidex wheelchair model

No-one ever dreams of being disabled, but millions of unfortunate people face the transition every single day. During the initial stage, you’ll no doubt face a ton of emotional stress, mental struggles, and physical discomfort. At this point, most disabled people have very little motivation for life, because they feel it will never be the same.

Now, while it may not be the same, you can still live life to the full. You can still create amazing memories, find true happiness and forge amazing relationships. You just need to endure the difficult phases, have faith in the process and do your best during the transition. To provide you with some help, here are some things to consider…

Take your time

It’s natural for those with disabilities to fear the worst because they just see the short-term changes that cause them distress. They fail to focus long-term, which would empower them to realise things can – and will – get better. Just remember to take your time and approach things at your own pace.

Focus on what you can do

You’ll probably concentrate on all the things that you can no longer do, right? That’s what causes the most emotional distress; the realisation that you can’t do things that you once found easy. Rather than dwelling on those, just focus on all of the things that you can still do. 

Accept help

You may well lose a certain amount of independence with a disability, but you never lose your pride. That pride can sometimes prevent those who need help to reject it, simply because they so desperately want to be able to do it themselves still. Come to terms with your disability and accept help from those around you.

Find a community

There’s a countless number of people who are in the same situation as you or have been through the challenges that you face. Whether it’s online or in your local area, just find a support group of people that you can talk to on a regular basis. When you do that, you’ll realise that you’re not alone.

Be positive

All of the negative energy that you’re full of is hard to eradicate considering your position, but you still need to try and remove it. Search for all the positives in every situation, rather than allowing the negatives to affect you. Being positive will help you massively through the process.

Believe: You will be fine!

It’s important to leave our thought, questions, and suggestions on the comments. Let’s build a strong community together. Love Sam

I was delighted to be approached by Delphine the Label to be a social media influencer.  They are an Australian women’s wear label influenced by Melbourne’s street style.  Melbourne happens to be one of my favourite cities. Check out how I made my personal Delphine the Label statement with a  beautiful piece on Instagram – @samabullock. Take a look at their website to learn more about their range of clothes http://delphinethelabel.com

I couldn’t be more excited about the future of the fashion industry. I’ve always emphasized the endless opportunities on social media, Instagram as a pointer. It’s really amazing how you could live your life, express your passion, be simply you and still make bold statements that would be noticed for the better good.

My story isn’t a secret and I’m ever happy for the life I’ve got especially on bright sunny colorful days when a fashion brand like Delphine the Label contacts you to be an influencer to their brand, you’re most definitely excited to try out their designs and leave an honest review. For the ones who would first wonder what is really special about this brand, well, with a big smile on my face I’ll start by telling you that Delphine the Label is an Australian women’s wear with the great uniqueness.

They are inspired by Melbourne’s street style and international runways. I shouldn’t forget the elegance of this brand and the fact that they reached out to me to be a part of this really means that they are more open to working with diversity. Their designs clearly reflect on the ambition, spirituality and individual essence unique to every woman and like you would expect. The result is definitely a collection of strong looks for every occasion.

Their collections are made from very quality materials and styles that are befitting for any shape and statement or mood you choose or have. Speaking personally now, I tried on 2 pieces, a top and a trouser which go perfectly together. It’s summertime and this choice was perfect for my chic look and sunny mood. The colors were really beautiful and from touching it, you can tell that it’s definitely quality. I can gladly declare that my cloth was really pretty and satisfaction was way and over the top.

So for the next time you are in doubt on the piece to wear for birthday parties, weddings or any kind of event, visit the iconic store online at www.delphine.comfor a range of ‘effortlessly wearable’ clothing piece of different kinds.

I would be loving my iconic delphine two pieces which fit so great you would think there was a jumpsuit. They would stick with me for the longest time as they are quality, chic and classy, I’ll be one click to the iconic online store cause they sure understand the different fashion statement we all want to achieve.

Check out how I made my personal Delphine the Label statement with my 2 beautiful piece @samabullock on Instagram and be sure to follow me because I’ve got so much good vibe and love to share.

Why WheelAIR makes you a cooler person?

Why WheelAIR makes you a cooler person?

samanta bullock wheelchair model wheelair backrest coolerHi my friends

I came across WheelAIR last year when a friend approached me about this amazing product. At that time I didn’t understand much about all of its benefits and I didn’t think too much about it until earlier this year when I went to Naidex to be a judge of the Naidex Changing Lives Award.
WheelAIR was a product in the competition so I became more familiar with it and realised all of its benefits.
I’ve now tried the product and then today I am here to talk it as I believe it will improve the lives of so many wheelchair users.
It is something that will change the game for wheelchair users.
WheelAIR is a backrest that blows cool air through your back making you feel fresher in the hot weather.  If you are a wheelchair user you will understand when I say that in the heat it’s not fun at all to be sitting all the time.

Also for tetraplegics that don’t perspire it probably will be an excellent purchase as it will help you to keep cool. Another situation where it will help us is when we are playing sport because we get hot and sweaty and the wheelAIR backrest will help keep us cool.

So I’ve tried it for a week now and I have used it in 3 situations that made me feel much more refreshed. 1) The first was a meeting where the air conditioning wasn’t working properly and I was just fine after turning it on.

2) Last weekend I used it at the gym during an Insanity session…. oooooh  I can’t describe that feeling. It was hot and the backrest made a big difference.
3) Happened today. It was a photoshoot in the sun where the temperature was 28 degrees…. lifesaver.
So this is my initial review and I hope to share with you many more situations where it will have an impact. If you also have one please let me know what you think.
They have some case studies you can take a look and see how it improves the lives of different people from different backgrounds. https://www.wheelair.co.uk/case-study-antony-cotterill/
Here is their website in case you would like to know more about it.  https://www.wheelair.co.uk

I am so happy to demonstrate products that will help somehow.

Please leave your feedback on the comments.

Thanks a lot
