Accidentally Adaptive: SolarBuddies Sunscreen Applicator

It is almost Memorial Day, and to me, that's always felt like the sign that summer is on it's way. It might not be summer temperatures yet in Pittsburgh, but it's still always felt like the sign on the calendar that summer sun will be here soon. Which also means it's time for me to be (even more) vigilant about sunscreen application. This summer, I have a new tool to make things a little easier: the SolarBuddies Sunscreen Applicator.

Accidentally Adaptive: Bandolier Phone Case

Just like almost everyone else my age, I like to have my phone on me at basically all times, especially when I'm out and about. Putting it away somewhere in a bag is hard for me, though - I have to have something close enough that I can physically lift the phone in and out of, which is actually a struggle for me. So I usually just leave it sitting on my lap, which works for the most part... until I have to drive over a particularly rough patch of sidewalk and my phone slips to the ground. But this Bandolier crossbody phone case has solved this problem for me!

Accidentally Adaptive: Automatic Dispenser

I love using micellar water to take off my makeup and cleanse my face. I landed on this automatic dispenser and have been using it daily for over a month now. It's not necessarily designed with easier, adaptive dispensing of micellar water in mind, but WOW it works so well!

Accidentally Adaptive: Hotel Lobby Candle Snuffer

I love candles year round, but there's something especially cozy about them in the winter - the warmth and the flickering flame really set the mood. I already shared an Accidentally Adaptive post about my electric candle lighter, which helps me light the candle independently, but then there's always the question of putting the candle out. Enter this candle snuffer from Hotel Lobby Candle - the solution to my problem.

Accidentally Adaptive: One-Button Sweater

I love the look of a cardigan over a dress, but I often struggle with actually making it work. It can be tricky to make a cardigan look nice while seated - if they're too tight, they end up bunched and keep rolling up, and if I leave it unbuttoned, it has to stretch around the supports of my wheelchair and it just won't stay put. Plus, my shoulders are so narrow that if I leave something unbuttoned, it tends to keep sliding off my shoulders. But I like the warmth of a sweater! So when I saw this Madewell sweater with one button, I was so excited.

Accidentally Adaptive: JoyJolt Glass Mugs

Even a casual reader here or viewer on my Instagram knows that I am a coffee person. I think I could rival Lorelai Gilmore in my love for it - coffee, cappuccino, macchiato, I love them all, and I drink them basically all day long. I finally found the perfect mug that is incredibly light and also really well insulated - these double-walled glass mugs from JoyJolt!

Accidentally Adaptive: StriVectin Neck Serum Roller

I am very into the skincare that I put on my face - I have a routine that I use, I love reading about new products and ingredients and their efficacy, and I'm always searching for the next amazing product. But I have largely ignored my neck up until now. I know it might sound silly, but I recently saw some pictures of a woman who had applied sunscreen to her face daily for decades but not to her neck... and the results were shocking, to say the least.

Accidentally Adaptive: Starbucks Mobile Ordering

If you know me at all, or have followed me online even for just a little bit, you probably know about my love of Starbucks. It is no joke that I'm often found with Starbucks cup in hand. So it's very fun for me to share today about how the mobile ordering that Starbucks offers is actually accidentally adaptive.

Accidentally Adaptive: Day After Dry Shampoo Brush

I have hair that gets very oily very quickly - but I also have a lot of very thick hair, so if I can get away with skipping a day or two of washing, it saves me a lot of time and effort. To do this, I absolutely have to use dry shampoo if I want my hair to look semi-decent on day two. This means that I have tried many, many different dry shampoos over the years, to varying degrees of success. But I have a new favorite to share today - the m'Chel Haircare Day After Brush.

Accidentally Adaptive: Hilton Hotels Confirmed Connecting Rooms

I know I've shared a lot of travel related posts recently - I think that this should be the last one for a while! But this is something that I was so excited to find out about myself, and am equally excited to share with all of you. For this post in my "Accidentally Adaptive" series, I'm sharing about Hilton hotel's confirmed connecting rooms.
