Gift Ideas For Kids & Teens With Disabilities

The holidays are such a magical time of year! Most people enjoy spending time with families, hearing the Christmas music playing in the stores and the general happiness and positive energy people are tossing around like confetti. For some parents the holidays can be a bit more of a challenge and not because of our grinch attitudes or dislike of the season. The holidays are different for some parents because the holidays are different for our kids. As a mother of three beautiful kids, a girl and two boys (both boys have disabilities) I know how unusual it can be to help your kids enjoy the season as much as others. Our oldest boy has ADHD and struggles to complete tasks or enjoy quiet, calm activities like others his age. Our youngest has Asperger’s which makes it a struggle for him to enjoy the wide range of emotions so many kids express this time of year. The holidays are not always easy for them simply because they experience things differently and don’t enjoy the same activities. Th

Keep Cool in the Summer with These Styling Tips

Even if you are the type of person who thrives on high temperatures and loves it when the height of summer rolls around, it is normal to find that sunshine and heat aren'talways a winning combination. Overheating is an incredibly uncomfortable experience that can feel like an impossible challenge to ignore, especially if you are someone who prides themselves on their outward appearance. If you value looking good and therefore don't want to look incredibly sweaty all summer long, here are some styling tips to help you out.


Be Prepared


Some people find that to avoid the heat of the sun, they simply close the blinds, remove their clothes, and turn on any fan that they might have. However, avoiding the sun doesn'tnecessarily mean being as safe as possible. If you must venture outside despite the heat, it is essential that you are prepared. Bring items such as:

• A water bottle;
• Sunscreen;
• A wide-brimmed hat;
• A handheld fan, either electric or manual.

With any necessary accessory like a water bottle or sun hat, you can find attractive alternatives to the everyday version that can actually serve to enhance your overall outfit. Or you could opt for a stylish bag to contain all your summer essentials.


Dress for the Weather


To keep yourself cool and stylish, one of the key steps is to have a wardrobe selection that allows your body to breathe and enjoy the breeze. This involves materials that are lightweight, delicate, and comfortable to move around in,even at high temperatures. Take a look at for summer wardrobe inspiration.


Consider a Haircut


If you are prepared to rock a new summer look, having your hair cut shorter might give you the chance to feel more airy and relaxed in the heat, especially if you are used to long hair making you overheat. You might enjoy the breeze thanks to your new haircut so much so that you choose to regularly have a trim in the warmer months as part of your summer look.


Seek Out the Shade


Just because you are going out in the sunshine doesn't mean you will be forced to position yourself under the direct sunlight. Pay attention to where the shade is located wherever you go and sit under the shadow of a tree or under an awning.Not only will you reduce the chances of becoming too hot, but you will also be protecting your skin from sun damage.


Bring Water Everywhere


Although it may be a piece of advice you see all too often on the internet, in the summer, it truly is important that you bring as much water as you can if you go out for prolonged periods in the heat. Dehydration is incredibly unpleasant and dangerous, so fill up a bottle and bring it everywhere you go until the risks posed by the temperature start to diminish.


Hopefully, these tips will help to keep you looking and feeling fresh, even in the hot weather.
