I now own the Cadillac of Fans...a complete overview of the Ozeri Ultra 42 Inch Wind Fan

Ozeri 42 inch Ultra Wind Fan
My husband loves sleeping with a fan on; I’m not sure if it’s the white noise or the air blowing on him but he’s a bit of a baby when he doesn’t have a fan and our fan recently broke so I’ve been on the lookout for a new one for him.   I am NOT a huge fan of box fans and I honestly think most fans are a big eye sore that I would rather not have in my house. 

So, I was super excited when I was given the opportunity to test the Ozeri Ultra 42 Inch Wind Fan courtesy of the fine folks at Moderna Housewares. The fan actually showed up as I was leaving for work one day and it killed me to not be able to open it right away, but you can bet it was the first thing I did when I got home that night!  The only assembly required for this fan is the base and putting batteries in the remote.  It was really easy to put together and I had it put together and ready to go in no time.

My absolutely favorite feature of this fan is that it has a remote.  Yes, my fan now has its very own remote. Not only that, but it has ALL of the functions so you can control it from across the room just as if you were standing in front of the fan.  While I love the remote I’m also really glad that it has all of the functions on the fan itself because I imagine at some point my child will inevitably misplace this remote, as she does with every other remote in our house…..sometimes I think she does it just to mess with me.
Control Panel and
 Remote Control!
There are three different speed modes; low, medium, and high, which is pretty typical of a fan.  But this also has three different modes for breeze patterns.  The patterns are normal, nature, and sleep.  The sleep mode is great because the fan is significantly quieter in sleep mode, which is great for people like me and my husband.  The noise of the fan can often be a distraction for me if it’s too loud so I like that it can be set to a quieter mode. 

Last but not least, this fan has a timer that you can set in hour increments up to 12 hours.  This is great as my husband gets up before me, so he can set the timer for 8 hours, it goes off when he gets up and I don’t have to freeze to death anymore.  I also discovered that if the lights on the LCD display bug you, you can hold down the mode button and it goes into a “moon” mode and all the lights go off except the moon. 

Please feel free to check out my YouTube video  to see this awesome fan in action: 

I am extremely impressed not only with the quality of this fan, but the functionality as well.  It’s a beautiful looking fan that doesn’t look like an ugly eyesore in my house and the different modes and functions make it easy to adjust to suit your personal needs.

Fun and Customized a snap!

             I’ve always kept it pretty simple when it comes to wearing jewelry, but recently I’ve been looking to add to my collection. Nothing fancy, just a little costume jewelry. I always feel just a little bit better about myself when I wear earrings, so I’ve been looking to add some bracelets and other accessories to my very limited collection.

             I recently stumbled onto an amazing storefront called HelloCrafts on Amazon that specializes in, you guessed it, jewelry! I was able to get into contact with the store owner and after a little discussion; they promptly offered to send me a sample of their jewelry. I’ve been anxiously awaiting the arrival of my sample jewelry and it actually arrived on my birthday! How excellent is that timing? 
The side detailing of the bracelet.

              In the package I received one of their customizable snap bracelets, and a set of snap buttons. While I know snap jewelry has been around for a bit, I have never personally owned any so I was intrigued at the idea of trying it out. The bracelet is beautiful! The designs on the bracelet are just really pretty and they’re pretty intricate. This bracelet currently retails for $6.98 on Amazon and to be honest with the detail and quality put into the design I would expect a much higher price point. The clasp is actually magnetic, which makes it super easy to take on and off. I generally have to ask my husband to close the clasps on bracelets for me, but with this magnetic clasp I can do it myself.

              Now, let’s get to what makes this bracelet really special. The middle of the bracelet is actually a snap/button and you can buy several different snaps to place in the center to customize the bracelet to match your mood, your outfit, or pretty much anything you want. HelloCrafts has several different snap bundles you can purchase, but the one they sent me was a set of 6 and these snaps currently retails for $7.97 on Amazon. I can use each different snap to create a new look; so I really end up with 6 different bracelet options!

             These bracelets and snaps are a great way to customize a unique look to fit your personal style, and it’s really affordable. Not only that but they have an entire line of snap jewelry, including necklaces and earrings and the snaps work on all of the jewelry. So, if you’re looking for a fun and affordable way to expand your jewelry collection go check out the HelloCrafts Storefront!
