Science says that coloring can help to relax your mind and reduce stress. I developed a fashion coloring pages e-book specially for adults who love everything fashion and style. This post describes the product and has the link to buy it.

My Second Fashion Book
Today is First Friday at the International Arctic Research Center and Geophysical Institute starting at 1500 Alaska Time. So when you are in town I would love for you to come. I will take this great event as an opportunity to officially launch my new fashion book at the venue. Thus, when you are reading this post early today morning it would be something like T-11 hours and hold if it were a rocket launch. 😉 But my readers can get the book already prior to the official launch at 33% off.
Actually, it’s an e-book. Those of you who have a free subscription for my free bi-weekly High Latitude Style Newsletter have had already an opportunity to take a glimpse at the inside.
What’s It All About
This new e-book is an adult coloring book featuring outfits my readers loved. Research has revealed that coloring has calming benefits. Instinctively, we all knew that. Weren’t we all given a coloring book when we visited granny and the adults wanted their peace to chat? If you have kids, didn’t you use this calming benefit of coloring too to keep your kids occupied while sitting in the waiting room at the doctor’s office or at the airport?
Why did we forget about the power of coloring books that we used (and enjoyed) in our childhood and as young parents?
Coloring Is an Often Overlooked Stress Releaser
It’s all about stress, routine, and the changes related to midlife. In our professional life and/or career, we exchanged the crayons for pens, pencils and highlighters. Work, career, and midlife have brought many responsibilities. Add getting into menopause, becoming an empty nester, downsizing the house, finally getting promoted or re-entering the work force, care for our parents, and other changes related to midlife plus your body starting to complain when exercising, you name it. In other words, midlife is at times very stressful. We feel burned-out. However, the pile of things to be done makes us work even harder, and longer to get the jobs done. We make mistakes, and have to re-do everything.
It’s a vicious circle of stress causing more stress and problems. Being tired and exhausted leads to mistakes and even more stress. While not all these “hurdles” applied to me (thanks goodness), I – like many other women of my age – need to recharge my batteries.
Coloring Has Destressing Power
I am a big fan of coloring because of its relaxing and beneficial de-stressing power. Coloring generates wellness, quietness. It is also known to stimulate brain areas related to motoric skills, the senses and creativity. Since I consider myself as an average Jane Doe, I am sure many of you have experienced such stressful midlife situations as well. To solve our problem I created a coloring e-book with coloring pages of fashion. We all love fashion.
What’s in the Fashion Coloring Pages e-book
The book starts out with a brief discussion of coloring supplies. Next follows an introduction to color palettes with some inspirations on how to choose them to create certain feelings, vibes or effects. The next section introduces you to various coloring techniques and explains the best practices to create frame-worth pages. After this introductory adult coloring chapter, coloring pages follow that require different degrees of skills. Some have shadows already built in, others don’t, or have more or less small features. The most difficult ones are the barely-there contours that just give the proportions right, and permit you to unfold your own creativity.
How to Use It
You can print the outfit coloring pages as often as you like. This means you can look how the same outfit looks in a different color combinations or even frame your work as an Andy Warhol-like wall decoration.
Where to get the Fashion Coloring Pages e-book
You can buy my Fashion Coloring Pages e-book for a short time at an introductory 33% off for just $1.99 at the link in my side bar. The price will go up in June. Thus, rush to get your solution to relaxation.
P.S. Did you already buy my style recipe book How to Dress for Success in Midlife?
