Marcela was here in September and we did a photo shoot for Gunda Hafner with @Piotropacki. I think I talked about this  in a previous blog. It was a fun day and we captured some amazing pictures for the launch of Gunda’s new collection. Marcela, known  as ‘The Journey of a Brave Woman’ on Instagram, came to Europe to give a talk at the Rewalk conference in Germany and we decided that she should come a few days earlier so she could spend time with me and get to know London as my house is accessible. It was so fun to have her around. I could show her around and it looks like we are old friends and not only Insta followers. On the last day we decided to sit and film for you guys about the Rewalk and her experience ( I launched this film last month – Check it out) and we also decided to talk about fashion and representation. I put a film together of this talk that we did specially for you.

Wheelchair Camping- Raw Fest Vlog

I thought I would share with you my Raw Fest Vlog. I wrote an article a few weeks ago talking about the event, camping, demos, etc and few of you asked how I would camp. So I put together a video with some moments of my experience at the Festival. Here is the video below.

Love Love Sam

I went to Ireland with my husband in June to help him deliver a wheelchair tennis workshop as Tennis Ireland is starting a project there. If you like I can post here a little bit about the workshop and the work I do with Mark Bullock. Let me know in the comments if you would like to see it.

I also enjoyed the opportunity to vlog and show you guys a little bit of Dublin, my Guinness experience etc.  Here is the video, I hope you enjoy it!

Also please let me know what kind of videos you like most. Is it fashion, vlogs or disability related matters.
