Fun and Functional Family Finds by Robin Gorman Newman


As stated on their website, “Active Edge™ is the first technology capable of infusing and embedding a recipe of electromagnetic frequencies into fabrics and other materials. Developed here in America, Active Edge™ reacts very positively with the human body to improve wellness and quality of life. We have 3 formulas/recipes which are embedded into specific products to help the body with performance, sleep and pain relief. Medical experts involved with our clinical trials believe when an Active Edge™ product comes into close proximity with the body, it activates the sympathetic nervous system. This increases blood flow and oxygen intake, while at the same time decreases inflammation, which all helps to improve the functioning of the body. The benefits are numerous.

The results of the clinical trials with 2500 people, as well as the Department of Defense testing, show ZERO negative side effects. In addition, Bureau Veritas, a worldwide-accepted testing lab, has verified by standard test panel (6509)280-0040, that all standards and consumer protection regulations are passed. Our technology contains no toxins, allergens or harmful properties and is non-microbial. All tests comply with US and international testing regulations.

*We do not recommend Active Edge™ products for pregnant women, children, or anyone who has an implanted electrical device such as a pacemaker. Active Edge™ has not been tested on either of these groups of people.”

I was curious about this product because, like many busy moms, and people in general, I don’t always sleep well or deeply.  I wore the bracelet over the course of a week.  There were a few nights I slept more soundly….though it’s hard to know for sure that it’s due to the bracelet.  Beyond that, I did feel like it helped to put some spirit in my step when out ‘n about and at the gym.

Handmade in America, the hip-looking, strong bracelets, made of military-grade parachute cord, come in a wide array of colors, and can even be customized.  The family owned business has supported many causes over the years, and they are big on military and patriotic designs.

Everyone’s body is different, so the results will vary….but it’s a very intriguing concept.   I’m quite the fan of alternative approaches to well-being, so this is certainly worth a try and a fairly affordable investment.  They even make a line of dog collars, if you pooch needs a boost.  Visit and




Lumination Glow Stick Markers are non-toxic glow sticks that write.  The designs last up to two hours, and the marker glows for up to four hours.  It comes in five colors, and they draw on paper, fabric and other surfaces.   No black light is needed to see the creations. My 12 year old son is crazy for these, and they are super cool at parties and concerts. Visit







These pretty undies are a find!  Knockout Smart Panties have a built-in absorbent liner, for little leaks, and they are pretty, light and fit well. Made of 100% cotton, they feature moisture and odor-wicking technology to help keep you dry.  The lacy styles are sexy and feminine.

There are 10 styles available in a range of colors and cuts and up to size 30.  Every garment is made in the USA with luxury Supima® cotton for  comfort, breathability and easy care.   There is even a Contour Brief to help smooth.  These are my new favorite panties!  It feels good to look good, feel comfortable and protected.
