You are going to LOVE DIY frayed denim jeans! It’s one of my favorite ways to repurpose jeans and has added a lot to my wardrobe without a big expense. One of the easiest ways to update an old pair of jeans is to cut off the bottom seam. Some skinny jeans taper close to…
I started Trend-Able to empower women with invisible physical disabilities to look and feel their best in order to live their best lives. I struggled with low self esteem as a young person with invisible disabilities and have made it my mission to help others learn how to accept their perfections and focus on their strengths.
I had one of those, Why didn’t I think of that?” kinda moments when I stumbled upon a photo of a pair of EZ Sox on Pinterest. My mom, when she was alive, would have loved this product. Due to Charcot Marie Tooth Disorder, the neuromuscular disease that I too inherited
I have a new love. Yup. Let me introduce you. Meet the rechargeable fan with mister! Sometimes things just get too darn hot! Like super steaming hot! I’m not sure about you, but I sure don’t want my makeup to smudge. Especially after I’ve spent so long putting it on. A girl has to do…
I had a full on 15-minute dirty fight with a parking meter last week. Normally, I wouldn’t have engaged the metal asshole by even parking there. We have had “run-ins” before and I should have known better. But, I was more than 20 minutes late (not my norm) for a doctor’s appointment and feeling anxious…
Have hand neuropathy? Love to wear bracelets but struggle to put them on? Well, say goodbye to clasps and hello to jewelry independence with stretch elastic bracelets! I love these lava stone bracelets with pops of colored stones! I also love aromatherapy. And these bracelets are made for essential oils. Lavender essential oil is calming…
To say it has not been easy finding myself is an understatement for sure
I literally put my parents through virtual hell from age 10 until my early twenties.
I’ll spare you the details for now. Let’s just say…
Delinquent Depressed teenage girl + mom fed up and near nervous breakdown = Shipped off to Boarding School far far away
Like many teenage girls, I was really insecure and wanted to be accepted so badly that I literally cried out for attention.
Everything was black & white and I remember worrying constantly…
What if No one saves me a seat at lunch?What if I NEVER get invited to Homecoming?What if no boy EVER really likes me?
I wanted to have the “perfect body” and “perfect boyfriend” just like Seventeen Magazine told me I could have and should have.
There were no Dove “Real Beauty” campaigns back in the 80’s.
I love parties. Getting an evite or that rare old school paper invite in the mail, is exciting.
It always feels good to be included.
Most parties these days are casual. If a dress code is mentioned, it typically says “Saturday Night Snazzy” or something else implying “Look Like You Give A Shit” but anything goes.
But, getting the rare “Cocktail Party Attire” invite used to cause me great anxiety and stress. With an invisible physical disability I have worries most people never even think about.
What will I wear that will cover my AFO’s? How long will I have to stand in place?
Will they even have a sit down dinner? How will I hold a plate and a drink?
Maybe it’s age or planning ahead, but I don’t stress as much anymore.
A great fitted white shirt is a staple in every fashionista’s wardrobe. But,
when you have fine motor issues, all fasteners are a pain in the a##; especially buttons.
You can use a button helper (metal tool found at home health type stores. But, they are time consuming to use. Instead, I have all my button downs sewn up permanently by a local seamstress. I always leave a few open at the top and buy shirts with plenty of stretch in the fabric so that I can easily slip them over my head.
