Campus Comfort: BR4SS Premium Men's Essentials

This is a sponsored post. All thoughts are 100% my own.

It's What's Underneath It All That Matters

When it comes down to it, it really is what's underneath it all that matters. Shorts and socks can make you or break you, and that's even more true when you're sitting in a lecture hall most of your day. College students of today want to look good, but they want to feel good, too. That can sometimes be a challenge to meet, but BR4SS has developed the coolest line of fine foundation garments that meet at the intersection of fashion and function. That's why we're shining a spotlight on BR4SS for campus comfort. You're going to love their vibe!

BR4SS Brand Undershorts

As part of our "Kidlutions Goes to College" series, we asked a college co-ed to take these uber cool BR4SS products for a spin, to see how they performed in real life.

BR4SS Brand Socks

Our College Co-ed Said...

"BR4SS is the best. I don't have time to think too much about the shorts and socks I throw on to get to class, but these made me reconsider. Both the shorts and socks are soft and comfy. So comfy, you don't even notice them...and that's a good thing...especially after sitting in class all day. I wish I had a drawer full of these shorts and socks!"

No Bunching, Binding or Pinching

Because a college student might not think of the features and benefits that a mom might, we asked, "Was there any bunching, binding or pinching?" The response was a triple-play of "no's". Then a bit of elaboration, "These are totally comfortable. And they look good, too! You know the minute you put them on!"

#UnderneathItAll make it BR4SS

A Hit with the High School Crowd, Too!

Before we could pass these BR4SS goodies along to our college reviewer, my high school son came in with a friend. They saw the items sitting on the table in the box and thought they were "SICK" (translation: awesome). My son thought it was totally unfair that these were being passed on for a college review. He begged me to let him keep them!

Details, Details

Per the company, "Custom slim fit minimizes "riding up" and is more supportive than regular boxers, less restrictive than boxer briefs. Premium fabric blend." Try them for yourself!

Happy Back-to-School!

Coloring Craze: Mandalas to Calm You

Coloring Craze! 

I just can't help myself. I love coloring! I always have. As a child, there was nothing better than diving into a brand new box of crayons and a fresh, new coloring book. I have vivid memories of that happening. I never quite grew tired of it, either. As a child, I never contemplated the amazing benefits of coloring that I now know exist. Read on, to see how this coloring craze supports relaxation, concentration and memory. Oh, yes!

Keep on Coloring

If you, too, have been fond of the act of creating a glorious, unique design on paper with myriad, swirling colors, a mandala book may be just what you need! Touted as adult coloring books, mandala drawings have been around for ages.  And I do mean ages. They are resurfacing and creating quite the rage.  The patterned little gems run the gamut of simplistic to intricate. Lose yourself in a mandala drawing today. 

About Mandalas

A mandala is a sacred space and often is in a circular shape. In Sanskrit, mandala means both circle and center, so it may be seen as reflective of the visible world around us (entire circle - whole world) and the invisible world of our psyches (the center - healing circle). Mandalas can be found in all ancient cultures. They are present in many religions, including Christianity.

Use in Therapy

From a therapeutic standpoint, Carl Jung, noted Swiss psychiatrist, used mandalas and symbolism in his work with patients.  In modern day psychology, helping professionals may use mandalas in a variety of ways.

Calming to the Limbic System

In my own practice, I have used mandalas for years with kids, teens and adults, to help them focus and relax during sessions. I like them for the rhythmic coloring opportunity they provide. The back and forth of shading in of the spaces is very calming to the limbic brain. 

Mandalas in the Classroom 

Use mandalas in the classroom to improve focus, concentration and memory. We'll write a more expansive post on that later, but for now, just know that the rhythmic action required in shading in a mandala requires very few executive resources and can help reduce aimless daydreaming. Could mandalas offer higher test scores? Hmmmmm....

What You'll Get:

* 25 Unique Mandala Designs (copy as many as you need for years to come)

* 6 pages of Mini-Mandalas, each page contains for of our designs in miniature

* 5 pages of ideas to promote calm, concentration, relaxation

Dorm Must Haves: Cool Care

This is a sponsored post. All thoughts are 100% my own.

Dorm Must Haves

Back-to-school time means off to college, too! With college comes dorm-life and a list about a mile long of "needs" for the new co-eds. Along with rugs and pillows, XL twin sheets, a mini-fridge and a shower bucket, you won't want to overlook a key safety item that looks pretty cool, too!  Recently, one of our college reviewers took the Cool Care for a test-drive.

Our Co-ed Said...

"I love that I can keep my heated appliances up and off my dresser, without fear of melting or scorching things around them. My cords don't get tangled up in other things. Best of all, I can get ready in a flash, and put everything back the holder, without fear of leaving a hot iron behind when I jet off to class. This looks great on my dresser and frees up room for my other essentials. Because it's portable, I don't have to put any holes in the wall (a no-no in the dorm) and can take it with me from year to year. There's plenty to stress about in college. This gives me one less thing to worry about, so I can focus on other things. I LOVE the Cool Care!"

Safety Matters

The creator of the Cool Care, Rick Alexander, developed it out of a need to keep his own family safe. His  3-year-old son was badly burned by a curling iron that was on a counter. His invention was developed to keep his son, and countless other children safe from a common household hazard. It's not just kids who get burned by heated appliances: it affects adults and our furry friends, too.

Preventing Tragedy

Several years ago, a family that lived nearby us lost their home and everything in it when it burned to the ground. The cause? A curling iron that was left on and ignited something nearby. Though I cannot say for sure, it is quite possible their story may have ended quite differently, had they used a Cool Care. 

For safety, convenience, aesthetics and ease of use, you can't beat the Cool Care. We love it just as much as our college reviewer does!

Express Yourself: A Teen Girl's Guide to Speaking Up and Being Who You Are

Express Yourself: A Teen Girl’s Guide To Speaking Up
Sponsored Post: I received product and/or compensation 
for this review. All views are 100% my own.
A Strong Inner Compass
If you parent, care for or care about teen girls, this book is a must have for your bookshelf. Express Yourself: A Teen Girl's Guide to Speaking Up and Being Who You Are by Emily Roberts, MA, LPC, provides girls with the information they need to develop a strong inner-compass to deal with the various challenges that are inherent in being a teen in today's world. 
Not Your Mother's Book
This is not your mother's "coming of age" book. It's written for real teens in today's world, with a fresh look at the pressures and pitfalls that exist in both the real and technological world. Relationships with parents, siblings, friends and those of the romantic persuasion are all covered, as are touchy subjects of the digital age. No, it's not your mother's book, but if you are the mother of a teen, I highly recommend you read this book, too!
Skills for a Lifetime
Ms. Roberts helps teen girls systematically understand the underlying issues inherent in challenging situations, and gives them a guide as to how they can effectively respond. The skills taught in this book will last far beyond the teenage years. They'll be skills that will be used for life.
Helping Girls be Authentic
I work with teen girls on a daily basis and there is not one of them who won't benefit from this book.  As the mom of a teen, this book contains what I'd want my own daughter to know to step out into this world as the best and most authentic version of herself.
The Voice of Authority Made Accessible to Teens
Emily Roberts speaks with authority, yet in a voice that's accessible and digestible to teens.  Teens can think of her as an older sister, one who happens to be a therapist and takes all of the developmental tasks of today's teens into consideration.
Building Strong Young Women from the Inside Out
If you have a teen girl in your life, get her this book. Better yet, read it with her. I've already recommended this book to several moms I personally know.  Now, I'm recommending it to you! As a therapist, I can see providing chapters in this book as a homework assignment to my clients to discuss the following week. This book will build strong young women from the inside out.
