I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Tips for Tuesday - Misc.e.l.f. Cosmetics and Ozeri Ultra 42" Win Fan

Today is our 4th blogiversary! We started this blog on this date back in 2011 with a post on that year's Golden Globes so in honor of that we posted about this year's Golden Globes (as well as this year's People's Choice Awards) in yesterday's Talking Topics post.

Me- Today I am recommending e.l.f. Cosmetics.  They are inexpensive. They make pretty much every kind of make-up and brush you can think of. They work well. They are easy to use as far as make-up goes. It depends on your skill level. They are great for cosmetics on a budget.

Mom - Today I am recommending the  Ozeri  Ultra 42" Wind fan, an adjustable oscillating tower fan with noise reduction technology. This fan is easy to use. It is much quieter than other fans. It is lighter and thinner than other fans so it is easy to move around and takes up less room. It has three different speeds and three different modes.  Night mode is slower and quieter. Normal mode is faster and louder although still not as loud as other fans. Nature mode is kind of like a tropical breeze. It has a timer that you can set for the fan to automatically shut off. The only bad thing about the timer is that it can only be set for increments of an hour so you can set it for one hour, two hours up to 12 hours, but you can't set it for a half hour or forty five minutes or an hour and a half or anything like that. The fan comes with a remote control. The remote control fits nicely into the compartment on top of the fan where the controls on the fan itself are located which makes it easy to store the remote when you are not using it. The compartment has a cover that snaps shut so that there is even less chance of the remote getting lost when it is not in use. All in all, this is best fan we have ever had and definitely the easiest one to use.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Where-To-Go Wednesday.


  1. I'm currently using a fan like your old one. I've been thinking of upgrading to a tower fan!

    1. We really love ours. Thank you for visiting Says Me Says Mom. Good luck in he giveaway.

  2. I'll have to look into ELF brushes. I can't seem to find one that I like for my eyebrows.

  3. I would like to get one of these fans for my room, it would be better than the overhead fan I currently have. Thank you for sharing with us!
