As you probably know I am an ambassador for Parallel Global, formerly Parallel London. Parallel is growing & spreading to other cities.  If you don’t know Parallel Global it is a fully inclusive set of races for all ages and abilities with no cut off times. Participants can choose between a 10K, 5K, 1K, 100m, 3K walk (new) or the Super-Sensory 1k and take part in a festival of inclusive activities.

For the first two years it took place in the Olympic Park in London and this year it will be announced soon. It has just been announced that Parallel Glasgow will take place on the 2nd September in George Square.

There is also the opportunity to try different sports and activities.  You should check it out at their website http://www.parallellifestyle.com It is a true celebration of diversity and inclusivity.
Last I had the experience of giving a “Parallel Beats’ talk with my husband around our experience in inclusive sport: http://www.parallellifestyle.com/parallel-beats/

We did the Super-Sensory 1k together, I loved the bubbles and I am sure you will love to be part of it too. Come and join us!
I hope to see you at a Parallel event. Love Sam x samanta bullock wheelchair model parallel global london

Aircraft

People are often curious as to how I travel on a plane.  This video gives you a little insight into how I get to my seat and how I get to the toilet on board.

I love to travel and share my experiences.  I learn so much by visiting new places and meeting people from different cultures.
There has been a lot of publicity about the challenges of disabled people travelling in the UK but the increased awareness will only help improve the services offered to disabled travellers.
I hope you take the opportunity to go out and explore the world.

5 of the Best Ways to Keep Your Skin Glowing

5 of the Best Ways to Keep Your Skin Glowing

The appearance of your skin is a huge factor when it comes to your overall appearance. Now, some people are blessed with genetically perfect skin, which stays clear all year round. However, others, like myself, need to do a little bit of maintenance to ensure the skin remains vibrant and healthy.

But, you don’t need to spend a substantial amount of money on expensive skincare products. I’ve been utilizing a few different methods for an extensive period of time, and they’re not only financially-friendly, but they’re also extremely effective. Here are 5 of the best…

  1. Thermal Water

I use this all the time, and that’s because it comes with a multitude of different benefits. Thermal water is essentially a variant of mineral water, and it is extracted from deep within the earth. Due to this, it is full of great minerals and CO2, and low in pollution and bacteria. These will soften the skin, reduce any inflammation and prevent any dryness.

Best Skin

Vitacid Plus

This one does need to be prescribed by a dermatologist, but that’s because it is a type of medicine that performs so well when it comes to the skin. It contributes heavily to the production of collagen, which subsequently lightens the skin, smooths any redness and gives it a radiating shine.

Sun Screen

When the temperatures rise, and the sun comes out, it is crucial that you apply plenty of sunscreen to places that are going to be exposed to the rays. Not only will this reduce your chances of developing skin cancer, the moisturizer within the screen will keep your skin glowing. Plus, it will prevent sunburn, so your skin won’t dry up, become sore and crack.

4. Water

Skin Glowing

It is no secret that healthy, soft and beautiful skin is a result of it being well hydrated. That’s why drinking a lot of water every day is so advantageous; it will keep the skin hydrated and fight off any toxins. If you balance out the pH levels with a pinch of sodium, then this will further assist with maintaining superb skin. I aim for 1 liters of water every single day!

  1. Skinade 

This is a collagen drink that I absolutely love. It has been developed by scientists, and every ingredient is designed to help give your skin a gorgeous glow. Along with being full of active items that speed up the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen within your body, it also tastes delicious.

Extra Tip: For those of you that wear makeup, try removing it using natural coconut oil, rather than the typical chemical-based products. This will allow your skin to remain healthy, and will also help you with hands as you apply it to your face.

I hope you’ve found this article useful, and it would be great to know if you have any preferred methods to keep your skin glowing? If you do, please leave a comment below!
