Tis the season to be freezing, bur bur bur bur bur, bur bur bur bur. Yes, I am one of those people who yearns for the winter when it summer. However, once winter gets here, I wish it would warm up. I am good with 65 all year round. Why can’t we have that?
Since gas and electric are so expensive, I am grateful for our fireplace. One of the hardest things to do, in our house, is get the heat from the fireplace down the hall to the bedrooms. Over the years, many different ideas have been tried. They did an okay job but never really warmed things up…. until now.
Now I am obligated to tell you that I received a Ozeri Ultra 42” wind fan and was asked to write a review about it. The opinions and stories are both mine and truthful. I do not believe in recommending a product to you that I think is worthless. If I think it is junk, I will contact the brand before hand or I won’t even accept it at all. Now that I have that out-of-the-way, I can proceed.
I have owned many tower fans over the years. Most were pretty basic. They oscillated and had a speed setting. Yep, that was about it. For normal use, they were great but for my needs, they were not met. When I received the Ozeri Ultra 42” wind fan, I figured it would be a good product but again, didn’t feel it would meet my needs. read the rest of this entry »
Disclosure: I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for National Dairy Council and the LACTAID®Brand. I received product coupons from the LACTAID® Brand to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
The amount of dairy that I used to eat was ridiculous. I absolutely love milk, cheese, and of course, ice cream. Somewhere around my 31st birthday, I developed a slight sensitivity to dairy products. I would like to thank my Mom for this since she can’t drink milk. Thanks Mom!
It’s difficult to change your way of eating when it’s something you have done for 30 years. All I could think was, how will I every survive! At one point I thought I might die from malnutrition. Okay so maybe I am exaggerating just a tiny bit but, it sure did feel that way at the time. Like most of my generation, we grew up drinking milk with every meal. Soda was never an option except for “special” occasions. Unless I am eating out, I drink milk with just about every meal.
We all love our dairy. How would most women survive without ice cream and butter? Statistics have shown that many Americans consumption of things like whole milk and butter have declined. However, the increase of cheese and ice cream have gone up. Swapping out one high fat food for another are we? Sure we are but sometimes, who cares!

One of the most annoying things to me is tons of holes in the walls. When I hung my television, years ago, it annoyed the hell out of that there were 4 quarter size holes in the wall. Luckily I couldn’t see them until last month, when I took the television down. Not to mention all of the walls that pictures were hanging on. Between wanting to have a unique look and just not knowing where to start, I am always on the lookout for new ideas.
Having recently moved, I was looking for ideas on how to make the new space feel more personal. With two boys running around full time, I just let things be as they were, plain. Not anymore! I think the way you decorate says a lot about your personality. When you walk into someones home, you immediately get a sense of who they are, or in some cases, who they are pretending to be.
One of my favorite products are custom wall. If you have not heard of these, please come out from under your rock because you are missing out. Wall Slicks offers custom designer adhesive vinyl laser-cut wall decals. They are quick, easy and you can redecorate your house in a day! There is no artistic or technical skill required to apply these wall decals stickers. Even the boys helped out so it’s easy enough for kids!
If you are a Mom, you are already thinking, “Stickers? There is no way!”, because we have all had kiddies sticking stickers all over the walls. Wall Slicks are an adhesive wall graphics that is as easy to remove as they are to apply, and are guaranteed to not leave residue. I can tell you that these are in fact simple to remove. I have removed one in the past with little to no effort at all. Also, with zero damage to the wall, which was painted in flat paint by the way. This makes them perfect for apartment dwellers, college dorms and kids rooms.
These adhesive vinyl wall decals can be used on virtually any surface! Yes, I did say virtually any surface. Their contemporary wall stickers work great on walls, glass, floors, doors, ceilings, furniture, and more! These high- style, designer wall graphics will improve the style in every room of your home. Some of the sayings would look so beautiful in a bathroom. The wall decals can be used in the kitchen, playroom, living room, family room, bedroom, dorm room, even the garage. I would think they would even be perfect for sprucing up the kids tree house.
You can design these any way you like. The have over 400 graphic wall decal styles with sizing and color options available. The nice thing is that the Wall Slicks wall decals look like paint. You would have to literally go up, touch it and inspect it to kow that it was a decal. The thinness of the material used allows decals to blend in with any decor and not look “stickery”. All you have to do is peel and stick it on. It’s a great no mess, inexpensive alternative to paint techniques, murals, stenciling, and stamping. Anyone can quickly add and remove these exciting wall decals.
Have you tried decals in your home? Were they easy to apply? If you haven’t tried them, are you interested in a new look?
