Ozeri Ultra 42 inch Wind Fan

Alright guys, I have a confession.. I have to sleep with a fan at night, I know i'm not the only one but, i'm also extremely picky about the fan, and I was recently given the opportunity to try the Ozeri Ulta 42 inch Wind Fan and it is perfect. This fan is and adjustable oscillating tower fan with noise reduction technology. IT EVEN COMES WITH A REMOTE! I will say it took me longer to put this together than it should have but that is completely on me, it has nothing to do with the fan. I'm blonde, what can i say :P Here is a list of some of the perks to this fan that suckered me in.

  • Boasts a sophisticated and stylish space-saving design that complements and enhances room decor.
  • Engineered to generate more air velocity with less noise on a foot-per-minute to dB basis, setting a new benchmark for noiseless airflow.
  • Features 3 preprogrammed airflow patterns designed to foster sleep, relaxation and comfort, and 3 whisper-quiet speed settings with 90 degree oscillation for optimal air circulation.
  • Includes 12 hour timer that can be programmed in 1 hour increments with push-button ease, and an enhanced-range remote control that conveniently stores in the fan.
  • Easy to assemble (no tools required). Ships with fan, base, extension column (to customize fan height), enhanced-range remote control, manual and warranty card. Satisfaction Guaranteed.

   

This fan is perfection, it even tells you the temperature of the room the fan is in. And does this fan let off some serious coolage, this might be the strongest tower fan I have ever seen. Its light weight so its easy to move from room to room, the remote can be used from a significant distance away and the different settings are so awesome. I especially like the sleep timer, I can set it for 8 hours and it will go off on its own, which is great. I can't tell you how many times I have ran late for work and forgot to turn the fan off so it ran all day with no one home (what a waste of electricity, I know!) But, not anymore, it goes off on its own when i wake up so I never have to worry about it. I highly recommend Ozeri Fans if you're in the market for a new fan.

Merlot Moisturizer

I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin, so when I find a moisturizer that doesn't break me out, i'm hooked! Merlot Natural Grape Seed Skin Care is that moisturizer for me. It is non-oily, fragrance free, anti-wrinkle, and packed with antioxidants. The moisturizer even has SPF 15, i'm someone who always looks for SPF in a face moisturizer; The sun is super damaging and leads to premature aging of your face. This moisturizer is light purple in color (its made from grapes) and is super soft. It also doesn't feel heavy when applied. It soaks well into the skin as if its not even on. As many of you know, I am a huge makeup fan, and often times moisturizers, don not set well under a full face of makeup, and Merlot Skin Care passed the test! I have only had the opportunity to try their moisturizer, I will definitely be ordering other products from this amazing company!

Dolphin Organics

I recently had the pleasure of trying Dolphin Organics or DoNaturals as they call themselves. I received the body wash and all over moisturizer in the scent just berry. Dolphin Organics makes hypoallergenic and gluten free products, they are also completely cruelty free and vegan. A HUGE plus in my book, is that all of the ingredients are listed on the back of the bottle, it tells you the ingredient, where it comes from, and what it does for you.


                                                      




                                                     BODY WASH

 I was a bit skeptical of the scent at first, it is very strong smelling it straight from the bottle, but when used its not bad at all, in fact its one of my new favorite scents! The body wash lathers up really well and leaves you feeling super clean.


                                                   


                                                         MOISTURIZER

Even though this is an all over body moisturizer, I dont use it on my face, I have super sensitive skin, and often times the gentlest of products breaks me out. BUT, I use this all over my body and it really does work! It soaks into your skin without leaving you feeling sticky and greasy. The scent is very similar to the body wash, smells a bit overwhelming until you put it on. Overall a wonderful product that I will personally be purchasing again.


Because Dolphin Organics is so great, they are giving all of my viewers a coupon code, so all of you can stock up on their amazing products. The code is MINDY30

Freshly Picked Moccasins and Giveaway

Let me start by saying that i love small businesses and like to support them whenever i get a chance. Susan Peterson, who runs Freshly Picked, has two kids and with her team, makes each pair of moccasins by hand out of her home in Utah. She is constantly working on improving her products and making sure they are "durable, well-designed" and stay on little's feet; and i love that she is a mom and uses her son as a tester. She even has a video on her blog where she encourages entrepreneurs to follow their dreams and conveys how she balances her life as a mother and a business owner. Knowing a bit of her story makes me love this company even more, and makes me want to support other companies like this.

My moccasins came in soft envelope, inside a cute little bag with the Freshly Picked logo on it. I wish i took a pic but i was too excited to see the moccasins! They are really well made soft-soled shoes. I like that there are different pieces stitched together so that when your little one steps or stands, there is a little pocked that forms on the side that opens the back of the shoe, allowing airflow, which is perfect for summer (if we ever have a summer)

I'm sure i'm not the only one who has trouble putting shoes on babies/kids feet, all children i've been around typically have small chubby feet and they just love curling their tiny toes when you try and put shoes on them. The elastic on these moccasins make them snug but also allows for easy on and off. 

And now the question on everyone's mind: Are they worth the price? I am VERY thrifty, i love nothing more than finding amazing items on sale, or even better a consignment store!  However, i think owning a good pair of shoes is important for adults as well as littles. Freshly Picked are well made and super cute for those reasons alone i think that every baby/kid should own a pair.

Wow Butter

WowButter is a PEANUT-FREE, soy, peanut-butter replacement. And the amazing thing is that it tastes almost identical to peanut butter.






Peanut butter connoisseurs will notice a difference, there is a slight discrepency in texture, but the pros far outweight a minimal texture difference. I can only imagine how amazing this must be for someone who has a peanut allergy, to be able to join in on some of the cultural staples of North America. To, potentially, have a peanut butter and jam sandwich for the first time ever. Ants on a log; peanut butter cookies; a spoonful of delicious-protein filled-comfort food.

Dew Puffs

I have honestly never even heard of konjac sponges until now. I am always willing to try something new especially if it will help my skin. The dew puffs are amazing! My favorite is the bamboo charcoal. They are so soft and gentle and really make you want to wash your face. I have had so many irritations due to my sensitive skin on my face, that it makes me dread washing it. NOT ANYMORE! I love how the sponges last for up to 3 months before you have to replace them. How awesome is that? 





Dew Puff offers 3 varieties of their konjac sponge:
  • Original Konjac Sponge- simply Konjac. No frills. No additives. Perfect for use with your favorite cleanser or alone!
  • Asian Clay Konjac Sponge- Clay has been used by ancient people in almost every culture of the world. Our Asian Clay sponge soothes, cleanses, and moisturizes.
  • Bamboo Charcoal Konjac Sponge- Perfect for troubles, erupted, oily skin. The bamboo Charcoal Sponge draws impurities and provides all the positive qualities of charcoal cleansing.
