They’ve come a long way! – BLM Products’ Garibaldi Heating 35″ Curved Electric Wall Mounted Fireplace.


When I was young, my Grandmother had an electric fireplace in her living room. She brought it out around the holidays, and we loved it. I am so amazed how far these have come. This fireplace is not only aesthetically pleasing year round, but in the colder months, can actually heat a room up to 300 square ft. in size. This is a Garibaldi heating fireplace from BLM Products’ on Amazon. It is 35” in length, and has a very pretty curved design to it. It has an elegant curve, which I really, really love. The heat comes out of the vents on the top of the unit only, which makes it easy to choose your placement for it. I also love the easy mounting design it has. It comes with a mounting plate which you attach to the wall, and then the fireplace attaches to the plate. They even include all the hardware, including the anchors. This fan is equipped with a regular 3 prong plug too, so you will not need a special outlet to operate it. There is no special set up or programming to do upon arrival. It’s a plug and play type of unit. Yes, it comes with a remote, and as we all know, remotes make everything better. I was, however, surprised at this price point, that they do not include the batteries for the remote. It requires 2 AAA batteries. No tool is needed to access the battery compartment. The fireplace is really responsive to the remote as well. The remote has one feature that I really appreciate. It has a hole on the back of it, so you can hang it near your fireplace. But, just in case you lose it, you can fully operate this fireplace manually as well. If you are facing the front of the fireplace screen, the control panel is on the right side. The buttons are clearly labeled as well. Some of the nice features this fireplace has, are:

1.       Heat on demand.

2.       Can run the fireplace separately from the heat feature, for year round use.

3.       Dimmable flames.

4.       Timer settings from ½ an hour to 7 ½ hours.

5.       Quick mounting ability.

6.       5,000 BTUs at 1500 watts.

7.       Whisper quiet functioning.

8.       Remote Control

9.       The front panel never gets hot to the touch.

I can’t wait for the holidays. We do not have a traditional fireplace, and a fireplace really makes the holidays special to us. It doesn’t stick out far from the wall either, so even if you have a smaller room, you can still hang it in there. It only sticks out approx. 5”. It does need 24” of clearance above it, in case want to hang your TV above it. The fireplace alone setting makes no noise at all. When you have the heater on, you can hear the blower, but it is pretty quiet, nd does not affect your TV watching or conversation. I really like that. It also truly doe not get hot to the touch on the front panel, which is great if you have little ones or pets. My fireplace has been functioning flawlessly. I am really happy about that. It was also designed here in the U.S., which is awesome.

A fan for the modern age. – Moderna Housewares’ Ozeri 360 Oscillation Tower Fan.


With the summer heat here, we are all looking at fans. We have air conditioning in our home, but I swear my husband has an internal furnace that never goes off. This fan is awesome. The assembly, not so much, lol. Do not follow their book of directions. Thread the cord through the base, before actually hooking the base together. Make sure you have a slotted screwdriver handy as well. The three screw they are talking about in the book, are actually threaded into the bottom of the fan, upon arrival. So, remove the three screws first, and then turn the fan upside down. Now, carefully line up the assembled base, and screw the screws back in. Make sure you screw the screws in nice and firm, since this is an oscillating fan. Now, just place the included button battery into the remote. Place it in upside down. I did it wrong the first time, lol. The remote is very responsive to the fan. I have had no issues with it whatsoever. It oscillates up to 360 degrees, so face it forward in the main direction you want to feel the breeze, when positioning it. You can choose between no oscillation or degree marks of: 60, 90, 120, 03 360 degrees. You can operate it without the remote as well. The buttons are on the top of the fan. Also on the top of the fan is a great hand hold. With this, it is so easy to pick up and place your fan. It is actually very quiet to run too. Our traditional cage fans are much louder. This fan has a digital screen which will show you the room temp. and all your chosen actions. After you have it set, you can turn off the screen. This fan has Micro-Blade Noise Reduction Technology in it. This means that they have over 200 staggered micro blades in this fan, and that is what keeps the noise output down. I really like that. That is always my main complaint about fans. Because it never stops with the noisy fan. Everything gets louder to compensate for the noisy fan, and then my ears are killing me. I haven’t had that issue with this fan. This fan has three speeds, and it can really cool down a room on high. It displays the room temp, and you can watch the room temp drop as it cools it off. I think that is pretty cool. If you are using this fan in your bedroom, after you set it up, and turn it on the mode and timer setting of your choice, you can then turn the LCD screen off, so you don’t have it bothering you, so you can sleep. I lke light in the room when I sleep, but I know people that need it pitch black to sleep. It’s nice that the option is there if you need it. My fan has been working very well. It’s pretty powerful, while taking up little space. It can actually cool down a room, and not be noisy while doing it. The remote makes it better, lol. I love the remote. And, I am very partial to the digital screen. It has actually spoiled me now, and I think all fans should have one.

Great side table fan. – Aura Bladeless Fan, Oscillating Fan, With Decorative LED Light & Remote Control (Silver).


My husband is always hot. I swear he has an internal furnace. I, on the other hand, am always on the colder side. So, a fan is a great option for us. I tend to be a little clutsy, and my younger son is a bull in a china shop. So, I love the bladeless fan option. I like how there are more affordable options than the creator of the bladeless fan. With this fan, I don’t have to worry about anyone hurting themselves, or knocking things into it. It has a high and low setting, and even LED lights, if needed. The icing on the cake with this fan, is the remote control. It works really well. You need to face it to the front of the fan, and it is very responsive. The only action that can be a little temperamental with the remote, is the “sway” option. This is the button you press when you want the fan to slowly turn 180 degrees. It turns left to right, and really spreads the breeze. Sometimes, I have to press it several times for it to pick up this action. It has always eventually picked it up for me, though. The actions that you can choose with both the remote and from the buttons on the front of the fan are: Power, Sway, Low, High, and Lights. The high and low are represented by a + and – signs on the fan itself. The light option on the fan is shown by a lightbulb, and the sway option is shown by a circle with an arrow on the end of it, on the fan. The fan buttons are subtle, but you can tell what they are if you look closely at them. They are very responsive, and work right away for me every time, so far. The white LED lights surround the base of the fan. I really love the lighting. It is subtle, and looks great on. It helps light the area at night, but it is not too bright, and does not keep us up at night. You can run the lights independently from the fan. I like that option a lot. They do not get hot to the touch either. This is not a strong blowing fan. It is a great side table fan. It will not cool down an entire room. It does a great job for close proximity; for example, if you put it by you when you are in bed, or sitting on the couch. The fan is actually a lot quieter than regular fans. Yes, it does make noise. The internal parts blow the air up into the upper archway, and the air blows out of the groove along the archway, into your room. It really is a nice working fan. You do have to snap the top part onto the lower half, upon arrival. It can be really finicky too. I kept feeling like I was going to break it. It took more over 10 tires, but I finally was able to snap it together. Once snapped in, it is seated pretty tight. It doesn’t shake or wobble at all. The power cord is separate, and attaches at the base of the fan. It is a regular 2 prong plug. So far, so good. I am comfortable recommending this product.

So easy to operate. -Lightingmama’s Stage Lights with 12 LED Par RGB Lighting by Remote Control and DMX512


Stage lighting is a lot of fun. I have been able to review a few of them, and my favorite are by far, the ones that come with a remote, lol. Remotes do make things better. This particular stage light is quite user friendly too. They are not all like that! With the remote you can change up the light settings, colors, speeds, and turn it on and off. It runs pretty quiet for stage lighting also. When it arrives you will need to pull the plastic tab out of the remote. It comes with the battery. The stage light has the power plug attached to it. You do need to attach the arm bracket which acts as both the stand and hanging bracket for the light. Just unscrew the knobs on the side of it, and use those to attach it to the light. This light also has DMX in and outputs on the back of it. Lose the remote, no problem. You have the ability to manual set it on the back, as long as you know the settings. They do include an instruction booklet with the light. This is a 12 par light. It has 3 green, 3 red, 3 white, and 3 blue LEDs in it. It gets a little warm to the touch while running, which is much better than the old lights. It does have an internal fan to keep the heat level at bay. It also doesn’t use as much electricity; only 12W. The modes this unit has are: Auto-Play mode, Sound active mode, DMX mode, and Master-Slave mode. For the amount this light can do, it’s amazingly small in stature. It is only 5” in diameter, and 5 ½” deep with stand. But it really fills the room with fun lights. Being lightweight, it is perfect for parties, and really perfect for DJ’s. My light is running flawlessly, and I am very comfortable recommending this product.
