buxom lip polish

Easy To Hold Gloss

I’m a lip gloss girl. Although matte lipsticks are all the rage, I have yet to find one that doesn’t feel drying and make me want to constantly lick my lips.

I love the feel of Buxom lip polish and the fact that the tube is easy to open and substantial enough to hold. It moisturizes the lips with vitamin A and E and has a built in hyaluronic acid booster that feels tingly but not irritating.

Shoes for AFO, Orthotics and/or Leg Braces

KICKS ARE DOPE

Sneakers are everywhere these days and not just reserved for the gym or casual weekend wear. Cute sneakers can be worn with tailored dress pants and a button-down or a maxi dress in the summer.

I tried on this cute pair by Natural Soul at Nordstrom’s and couldn’t decide which color to buy. The orthotic insole is removable and I didn’t even need to unzip them to get my AFO  supported feet inside. Oh, and they are soooo comfortable.

VELCRO IS LIT

I love this pair of adjustable velcro shoes by Plae called the “Larkin”. After reading about the Company and their  “plae it forward” mission, I fell in love.  Not only do the shoes have velcro for hand-challenged people like me, they have great traction , removable insoles, and room for AFO’s and orthotics.

Fine Motor Problems & Tools

HANDS-FREE ASSISTANT

I’m obsessed with my Amazon Echo Show

Not only does she play and show music,   weather, movie times, jokes, set timers etc, but she can also be used to video call contacts, display recipes and conduct 1-minute meditations and chair exercises.

Smart home products like Echo can be paired with lights, cameras, remotes and other objects making them voice controlled. For people with fine and gross motor problems, this is life changing.

CUTE WIDE-WIDTH BALLERINA FLATS

It’s hard to find flat dressy shoes that don’t look like you just raided an old lady’s closet.

These super cute faux suede ones have a pointy toe and an elastic jewel covered strap that holds a foot in place. The can be worn both casually and to black tie affair.

Beauty Tool for those with Disabilities & Neuromuscular Disorders

The Tool That Will Blow You Away; Literally

Blowdrying my thick long hair is a 55-minute high-intensity workout even for those without disabilities.

It is nearly impossible for me to get a brush through my hair while holding a heavy blowdryer in my weak, tissue wasted hands.

When I saw this flexible neck blowdryer counter stand on Amazon, I  had one of those, “Why didn’t I think of this?” moments.

While I still opt for the, last all week $30 salon blow-dry, this is a great cost-saving option.
