Ozeri 360 Oscillating Tower Fan #productreview

I received the 360 Tower Fan from Ozeri.  It arrived nicely packaged, as you can see below.  It was very easy to assemble.  The base is two half circles you align and feed the cord through the middle.  Then secure with the three screws and it's ready to go.  It stands 37 in. when assembled.

Ozeri 360 Oscillation Tower Fan is equiped with micro-blade noise reduction technology.  It also has a color LED display and comes with a handy little remote control that operates the following features. 
  • Speed - 3 comfort settings
  • Timer - set the fan to automatically turn off at a set time.  Increase the time in 30 minute increments up to a maximum of 8 hours.
  • Mode - Choose from 3 different breeze patterns. Normal, nature or sleep.
  • Osc - Set the fan to oscillate at 60, 90, 120 or 360 degrees.
  • Thermostat - Automatically turn the fan on or off based on the target room temperature chosen.
  • Night Mode Display -   Press the dimming button on the remote to dim the icons on the LED screen.

I love that this fan osciallates all the way around for the best air circulation.  I can set it in front of the kitchen air conditioner oscillating at 360 degrees and it also cools off the living room and bedroom.  This helps in the use and cost of the window air conditioner. 

If I have the fan in the living room, having the remote is convenient.  I don't have to get up from my favorite television show every time I want to change the speed or mode.  Nor do I have to turn up the volume on the television, because this fan runs smoothly and quietly.    

The fan is very lightweight, so moving it around the house is no problem.  Whether I have the fan on or off, I like being able to look at the screen just to know what the temperature is.

Do You Take Enough Steps Each Day?

Ozeri Digital Pedometer

Do you know how many steps a day you take?  Most doctors recommend 10,000 a day for adults, 12,000 for girls and 15,000 for boys to have a healthy active lifestyle.  Unfortunately, the average American only takes 3000 - 5000 steps per day.  I was curious as to which category I would fall into.

I started my research using the Ozeri 4x3runner Digital Pocket 3D Pedometer.  This is the first pedometer to feature dual walking and running modes with 3-D tri-axis technology for accuracy.  It comes with full instructions, belt clip, a lanyard and lithium battery.
Ozeri 4x3runner digital pedometer
Additional Features:

  • Counts up to 1 million steps
  • Clock and exercise timer
  • Auto sleep mode                                                                   
  • Pocket size
  • Tracks daily goal progress
  • Water resistant
  • Tracks your steps, speed, distance, calories and fat burned

First wanted to see how many steps I averaged during a regular busy day, where I hardly sit down for any length of time.  I was hopeful in thinking that it had to be close to 10,000 as tired as I would be at the end of the day.  I was a little disappointed to learn I only averaged 3800 - 4700 steps per day.

I told myself that just won't do and I need to kick it up a notch.  I used to walk regularly and enjoy it, but things get busy and I fell out of the habit.  Now is a good time to start that habit back up and get closer to those 10,000 steps a day.

I have the pedometer on me almost all the time.  It's nice and skinny so I can throw it in my pocket or clip it on my pants depending on what I'm wearing.  It keeps it's accuracy wherever I stick it.  I don't jog, but so far the walking mode is working great for me.

I have had a couple cheap pedometers before that always broke within a few weeks and only had a couple of features.  I definitely prefer the Ozeri.  It seems to be pretty durable also as I have hit it on the counter and dropped it a couple of times and still good as new.

Visit for their full line of products.  Check out my previous reviews of other Ozeri products.

New Prom Dresses & Old Memories


I remember looking forward to going prom dress shopping with my mom.  Mom enjoyed picking out different suggestions for me and I loved trying them all on for her.  Surprisingly, it never took me too long too find that perfect dress.
It was the late 80's after all, and now I can't believe I thought a couple of them were the "perfect" prom dress.  My freshman year I wore a full length, pink and white striped off the shoulder gown.  For some odd reason I can't remember my sophomore prom dress???  Junior year I wore a teal colored short and strapless dress which the green one below reminded me of.

Then for senior year (1990), I wore the lovely black dress pictured to the right and my friend is in the long white.

A-Line/Princess Sweetheart Short/Mini Chiffon Charmeuse Prom Dress With Lace Beading Sequins (018043996)Ball-Gown Sweetheart Floor-Length Organza Satin Prom Dress With Ruffle Beading (018043702)

Even though the styles and trends come and go, it is always fun to shop for your prom dress.

It's also easier and more convenient to shop for prom now with all our technology.  You can view and compare thousands of dresses online and not waste a penny on gas.

JenJenHouse is a great place to shop online for the prom dress of your choice.  They give you several ways to filter your search to make it easy to find exactly what you are looking for. You can choose your length, color, fabric, neckline, style and price all with the click of a button.

Below are just a couple of the dresses that caught my eye from the new arrivals.  View more JenJenHouse new arrivals at

A-line chiffon train black prom dress
Asymmetrical blue strapless prom dress

I've always liked the a-line style dress because it gives you the look of both a long and short style.

As you can tell, I seem partial to strapless also.  It makes me feel more glamorous. 
I like the full length fuscia gown below for feeling like a princess on that special night.

Fan Of The 80's? Slap Koozie #productreview & giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Slap Koozie

Do you remember teased hair, Swatches, big hair bands and slap bracelets?  If so, you grew up in the 80's like I did.  Though we like to make fun of those crazy 80's styles and fads now, some of them were actually pretty cool.

If you ever had one of those wrap around slap bracelets (mine was neon pink), you'll love the Slap Koozie.  The SlapKooler will keep your beverage insulated slap-on-style.  Slap a koozie on a can, bottle, or even your wrist so you don't lose it.

Made in the USA, all SlapKoolers contain dual recoiling steel bands encased in 4mm thick Neoprene (wetsuit material) topped with polyester fabric for easy personalization. No sharp edges so they are extremely kid-safe and fun! Need a fun and functional promotional item?  These can be printed with whatever you want, including text, pictures and illustrations.

The Sloozie
My hubby thought he was clever and combined words to call it "The Sloozie".  It's actually not too bad.  My daughter and I had too much fun and laughing slapping it on everyone who walked in the house as we yelled at them " Ya like our new Sloozie? Here, let me get you a drink."

Enter to win your own 80's style Slap Koozie below.  Giveaway ends 3/15/14 and is open to the U.S.  Good luck to everyone and remember to "Slap That Wrap!" (Devo music playing in background).

What's In The #JadoreVoxBox?


Introducing the JadoreVoxBox from Influenster

I'm always excited when the mailman brings me a box of goodies from Influenster.  I just received the latest JadoreVoxBox with some awesome items inside.

Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask

Boots Botanics Clay Mask

What is an Ionic clay mask?  It means the clay has a negative electric charge to help draw out impurities without overdrying your skin.  It is also unscented and hypo-allergenic.

Hershey's Milk Chocolate Kisses 

Hersheys Kisses
We are a chocolate loving house so these were gone way too quick.  Hershey's has been my favorite chocolate since I was a little girl.  I remember sharing them with my dad all the time. 

Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight Flat Iron Spray

Frizz Ease

I enjoy other John Frieda products such as the foaming hair color and the blowout spray, therefore not surprised that I also liked the flat iron spray.

Even though I already have fairly straight long hair, it kept my straight iron style smooth yet soft  for a couple of days without getting dull or frizzy.  I also didn't have to keep using the flat iron periodically to keep it looking staight and smooth.

Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes 
Kiss Lashes

I have never worn fake eyelashes before so these will be fun to try.

These lashes are made with tapered-end technolgy to blend with your own lashes and look more natural.  They're available at Walgreens & CVS.

Red Rose Simply Indulgent Teas

Red Rose Tea

I received Creme Caramel and Lemon Chiffon flavors along with a $2 off coupon.

I'm not really a lemon fan, but I did like the creme caramel.  It was just the right amount of caramel flavor, not overdone.  I like a cup around bedtime, especially with a cinnamon roll.

Vaseline Men Spray Lotion
Vaseline Men Spray lotion

Everytime I mention to my hubby that I got a product for him to try out, he gets this strange look on his face.  He is so not one of those guys who uses "products" or primps, but deep down I know he likes being my guinea pig:)  I told him this one would make him soft and smooth.  He laughed and said, "We'll see...."

I will let you know the verdict as soon as I can corral him long enough to sit down and try it out.

I will be posting more review results and pictures as I finish sampling all the products.  Also keep an eye on my Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest for result updates.

If you are interested in becoming a member of Influenster, give me a shout with your name and preferred e-mail address by clicking the Contact tab above.  I can only take 5 new members at this time, so it will be on a first come basis.
