Hi friends

Rua Luja –
Pict Lawson Filho

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

Delphine the Label why you should know about them.

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.

Being Frida for one day – Exhibition coming up soon.

Hello my friends.

Frida Kahlo

I am here today to talk about a person that I am really a big fan of and that I had the opportunity to play her in a photoshoot. Her name is Frida Kahlo.  Do you know her?

She is a  very famous Mexican painter who was married to Diego Rivera. She was a Communist and mainly she is known for her disability, many operations and chronic pain like me.
I was lucky to go to Mexico a few years ago and went to visit her house and see her clothes, and to be surrounded by all her stuff. What I liked most was her bed that has a mirror on the top from where she painted portraits of herself. She used a lot of colours in her work and she is remembered for her monobrow and flowers in her hair. There is a film on Netflix about her and I highly that recommend you watch it.
 
Over the summer in England, Frida is being celebrated in exhibitions. I took a picture in the street in Chelsea in front of a large mural of her with real flowers in her hair… AMAZING  Also I was asked to play her for an exhibition that will be on from 22 August to 6 September in London. I will leave the details at the bottom of the blog. So what was it? A friend of mine, photographer Anila Hussain, invited me to play Frida for a photography exhibition. I accepted instantly. She said we are much like each other and I would represent Frida very well in this exhibition called ‘ALL CAN BE FRIDA’. So we prepared for more than 2 days… flowers, clothes, colours, makeup, hair. It was a big job for 10 minutes of photography.
And the result is here.

I also made a vlog of my day being Frida and I will also leave the link here. I was out of my comfort zone but I was so honoured and proud to do it. The photographer had special advice for me to connect with my pain while she was taking the pictures, so I thought about all challenges and physical pain I go through.

I just hope you can go to the exhibition and see the results for yourself. Just to bring awareness about Frida is already good enough but to be in an exhibition being her is the icing on the cake!

Here below is the vlog for the day. I hope you enjoy it.

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

Love Sam
