Boost Your Brain with Mental Mojo: Back-to-Campus & Off-to-the-Office



With the relaxing holidays behind us, it's time to get back into the swing of things. Whether you're starting a brand new semester or just trying to readjust yourself to the daily grind of the office, alertness and energy are of the utmost importance. Maybe you get your focus-fix with coffee – and then (like me) spend the day making trips to the java bar. Perhaps energy drinks are your go-to, though they're too sweet, unhealthy, and crash-prone. But what if you could get a long-lasting boost of energy, focus, and alertness by simply adding something natural to your hydrating bottle of water.

Meet Mental Mojo. Mental Mojo is "rocket fuel for your brain," which comes in convenient stick packs that you add to a 16 oz. bottle of water. Shake it, drink it, and get to work. The power comes from a blend of 100% natural brain boosting nootropics and energizing amino acid / vitamin complexes. It goes beyond just boosting your alertness (which coffee and energy drinks easily accomplish) and also fosters focus to put get you "in the zone" and keep you there.

Mental Mojo is owned and operated by three Arizona State alums. While in college, they recognized a serious need for a cognitive enhancement product for students and professionals. Too often they saw their peers turn to Adderall and other prescription drugs to get an extra edge. Since those methods are neither viable nor ethical, they set about to creating a better solution. After two years of designing and tweaking , Mental Mojo was ready.

My Mental Mojo!
The good folks at Mental Mojo sent some samples my way. At my web copywriting / editing job, I sit at a desk for 8 hours. While I'm definitely a morning person, I still need things to keep me perked up throughout the day. Getting sleepy might mean missing a typo, misspelling a word, or drooling on my keyboard. (Ok, the drooling has never happened!) I usually turn to coffee, Irish Breakfast tea, and the very rare Red Bull. But for a couple days, I forbid myself from those short-term fixes to try out Mental Mojo.

And it works. It doesn't give you a bolt of lightning like the caffeine in coffee or energy drinks does. It comes on quickly, but smoothly. I was able to really get into my "writing zone," and stay there. No jitters. No crash. Just a steady stream of focus, alertness, and energy. It tastes good, too. (Much better than sugary sweet'n'sour energy drinks!) It was also kinda fun how the powder pours out light pink but turns into a vibrant, glowing green when you shake it up into your water.

I liked Mental Mojo. It definitely improved my workday (especially my 2 o'clock slump!) and eliminated my multiple trips to the coffee machine. 

Mental Mojo also aims to fight prescription drug abuse by providing a sustainable, safe and effective alternative to the non-medical use of prescription drugs for academic purposes. The company dedicates a portion of its earnings and its efforts to causes that fund autism research and curb prescription drug abuse.

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.
