Christmas Stocking Stuffer Gift Ideas for her

Hello Lifestylers,

Stuffing Christmas stockings is a fun holiday tradition but can be somewhat complicated. What’s the purpose of stuffing a stocking? In my opinion, it is a fun way to brighten someone’s life during the holiday season. If you are like me, I run out of ideas and sometimes struggle to select fun gifts for my friends and family will enjoy. So here are a few ideas I have used in past years.
Idea one: Fluffy stocks
Fuzzy socks can be purchased almost anywhere, and most women enjoy wearing them. A couple of the stores I shop for fuzzy socks are New York and Company and Bath and Body Works. Along with fuzzy socks, you can incorporate a hydrating foot lotion for rough, tired feet.
Idea two: A scarf gift set
Some scarf gift sets include gloves and a beanie. This gift idea is ideal for cold winter days. New York and Company has a wide selection of gifts sets online and in store.
Idea three: Facial Sheet Masks
Regardless of the type of skin, you have it is important to hydrate your face during cold winter days and throughout the year. A good store to purchase facial masks is Ulta. They are inexpensive and make a great stocking stuffer gift.
Idea Four: Travel size hand lotion, body spray, hand sanitizer
These items are perfect for women who are enjoying hydrating their hands throughout the day. Bath and Body Works has a great selection of travel size items ideal for the woman on the go. The only downside to this gift is not knowing which scent the person prefers other than that they make a great gift.

I hope this list of ideas makes her shopping less stressful. After all, the important thing is the act giving this holiday season. Don’t forget to comment and like my post. Let me know what type of gift you use to stuff your stockings.

Beauty Time

In a previous post “I am Still a Woman”, I stated that our inner beauty is important. However, I also believe in getting pampered and feeling pretty for yourself and not for others. We are all aware that people judge a book by its cover, and I know this by experience. Let’s face it, when people see us (wheelchair user), the first thing they notice is our wheelchair. If they are mature enough to see beyond the wheelchair, then perhaps our beauty will be notice. Just because I cannot walk does not mean I cannot feel pretty.

As a teenager, I had a personal hairdresser come to my apartment once a month. Having my hairdresser come to my home, was an excellent idea. It made things easier for the three of us (my caregiver, my hairdresser, and myself). I did not have to struggle to get out of my wheelchair to get my hair wash. After, a couple of years my hairdresser moved away. I had my share of inpatient hairdressers. Nonetheless, some excellent workers do not mind accommodating their clients. I currently have a great person who does my hair, and she is very patient. If you are some who requires accommodations communication is essential. As a consumer, you may be necessary to bring specialized equipment you may use at home to wash your hair. My wheelchair tilts which is helpful when I get my brows done.

Don’t be discourage if you cannot find a salon where you feel comfortable. It is a work in the process do not settle for less. Sooner or later you will come across caring professional people. What I want you to know is that we can and are beautiful women no matter what. Do not allow your disability to get in the way of maintaining your hair, your face, and body. Go out there and get pampered! It is time focus on yourself!

Roses That Never Die

Home décor is one of the many things I enjoy in life. I do not know about you, but I love having roses around my home. Unfortunately, they can be expensive and do not last long (die quickly). If you like having roses in your home? You will then like Wax Scented Roses (that never die) which also come with a surprise piece of jewelry. You get one dozen roses and a piece of jewelry for under $40.00 plus shipping and handling.

Sassyt4u Online Boutique

Carries Wax Scented Roses with a surprise piece of jewelry. There are 16 colors displayed below and four different pieces of jewelry to choose (bracelet, ring, earrings, necklace). The scents include Chocolate Dipped, fresh cut roses, Lilac, and Think Pink (Love Spell from Victoria Secret). You can also select Unscented Wax Roses. These are high-quality roses on a budget.

My Purchase Review

Over the summer I bought the Coral and Blue set of roses in the scent Fresh Cut Roses. I chose these colors as a gift for my mother, and I selected a bracelet for her. My mom loved her long lasting birthday gift. Not to mention the bracelet is of excellent quality and a beautiful color.

Pros and Cons

Pros

The flowers are made of high-quality material

Jewelry is also an excellent quality

It is inexpensive (12 roses for under $40.00)

Has a long lasting scent up to six months

The vast selection of colors appropriates for each season

Cons

I do not consider this a con, but like any material, sunlight can cause color to fade

The scent can be a bit high in the beginning, but you can always air them outside (shaded area).

Can only be delivered in the United States excluded Hawaii and Alaska

What do I honestly think

I love the flowers, and they make a great gift (birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, or just because). They are inexpensive, and they never die. It is a significant investment, and it will bring joy to the recipient. With Fall around the corner, I am ordering a new color to decorate my room. Follow the link in each picture to purchase.

I’m Still a Woman

Hi Lifestylers,

Living with a physical disability can be difficult for many people. Disabled women often struggle with self-esteem. However, as a lady who was born with a neuromuscular disease (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) and who is wheelchair bound my condition has not defined who I am. I do not feel less than of a woman because of my situation. Although society has implied over and over that outer beauty is important, it is not what makes a woman. Any type of physical disability can lower a person’s self-esteem regardless of their gender.

In my situation, I have experienced positive relationships with the opposite sex (able body), and I choose to only to date only able body men. There is no doubt that people observe my black electric wheelchair before they notice me. However, I completely understand that my wheelchair is a part of my life, and I cannot nor would I change it. Don’t get me wrong I did struggle with my self-esteem in the past (as a teenager), but I was surrounded by great people who helped me realize what is truly important. As a grown woman, I understand inner beauty is more important than outer beauty.

I like to share with you have few techniques that help me stay optimistic regardless of my everyday struggles. I believe in a higher power who helps me when I am having a bad day (because I do have those). Reading self- help books is something I enjoy and also is helpful. My most recent audiobook I like is The Year of Yes by Shondra Rhimes. I highly recommend this book it is truly divine and motivational.

Authenticity is important to me I cannot pretend to be someone I am not. I have many limitations, but I do not allow them to get in the way of the things I can do.  I try to consider new opportunities, which is why I started blogging. I want to share my life and experiences and struggles with you in the hope of educating the public. Life has countless of gifts in store for us, but we need to take risks to find them. Risks taking helps us learn about ourselves and our abilities. Sometimes we tend to give up without even trying.

Being a wheelchair user, I have learned that I am capable of doing almost anything. Don’t get me wrong it is not easy, and most of the time I do things differently, but I get them done.  Every time I accomplish a new task, it helps to raise my self-esteem. It motivates me to do and try more things. I’ve been discouraged many times, but I get back up and continue to live life. Never give up regardless of the situation as long as you have life you have hope. Till next I hope you found this post helpful.
 

 

 

 

 

Walmart Winter Beauty Box

Hello Lifestylers,
A couple of months ago I was reading a blog and came across a Walmart beauty box. To my surprise I had no idea Walmart has these boxes available to the public. Unlike other beauty boxes this one is only $5.00 a very reasonable price. I decided to give it a try and ordered one.
You might be wondering what do you get for $5.00? Well, Lifestylers believe it or not there are some good products that I have never before tried. I was quite surprised to see the generous amount of product provided for a low price. Enough rambling let’s get this show on the road! The packaging is pretty much plain, but well worth it. Below are pictures and discribtion on  the products. Please comment below.

As you can see the packaging is simple. I received some ties and Aveeno body wash and lotion.
