If like me you recently had a bob cut and then instantly regretted it. Never fear, because hair extensions can be a fast track way to waist length tresses – with little to no fuss. If you are not comfortable with styling your hair or have someone who assists you, don’t worry because with the right hair extensions it can be like styling your own hair, just thicker and longer! If in doubt, why not ask your hairdresser?
You know that moment when you realise your shoes are unbearable and that you can’t walk another step? Or when your friend tells you that your dress is completely see through and your granny pants are clearly visible? When the double sided tape peaks through your low cut dress or when your bra makes it seem as if you have four breasts? That my friends, is called a wardrobe malfunction. Sometimes with sight loss these things can be hard to spot and even harder to deal with, so preparation is key!
After a recent conversation with a friend on the serious lack of eligible men around, we got onto the subject of online dating. Now, I have never been a fan of meeting people on the internet, ok I have never actually tried it myself, however the very idea just doesn’t sit well with me.
I have always been impressed by those who can read braille. Watching someone’s fingers dart across the page of a braille book is almost akin to watching a pianist working the keys of a piano. To me, the raised dots on the paper communicate nothing, but to some braille readers they hold the key to the works of literary genius’ as well as being a tool for making day to day living much easier – but not for all braille readers.
Wow, our first fashion and design workshop was so much fun!
Have you ever found a product that just does it all? You know the one, the lipstick that you have used for you cheeks and lids, or the blusher that you also use as an eyeshadow.
Saturday’s event at RNIB was a blast, but the StyleAble team are well and truly knackered.
For the past few months I have been making regular appearances on Insight Radio, talking about all things fashion and beauty related for the blind or partially sighted guy or gal.
I know it has been a while since I last updated this blog post, but I have been away in Jamaica for my grandmother’s funeral. Returning from the humidity of the Caribbean, I expected to be greeted with a real chill or at the very least a nip in the air, but instead I found myself stripping off my brand new detachable fur collar (autumn/winter 2011) and unbuttoning my cardi (chunky knit autumn/winter 2010) feeling confused and ever so slightly annoyed.
And here’s why, whether your aim is to lose weight, tone up, increase your fitness levels or just feel better about yourself, exercise can do all this and more. In terms of looking good, we all know that eating a balanced diet and getting lots of exercise can work wonders. But it’s not just about slimming down and fitting into those jeans, it’s that glowy look you can only get from feeling healthy and yes slightly smug because you have taken control and done something good for yourself!
