Bionaire Mini Tower Air Purifier

Since the past summer I have been experiencing difficulty in breathing normally.   My doctor suspects that I might become asthmatic and I had to go pass a breathing test last month.  About two weeks down the line, the hospital called me and asked if I could come back for a second test.   Anyhow, I am still waiting for the results.  I had done a bit of research on asthma and how to ease it.   I learned about how air purifiers could help you.    I knew I could not justify purchasing it until I get the final results on the tests I had done but imagine my delight when I saw the Bionaire Mini Tower Air Purifier being offered on Vine Voices.

Last week, while at the pool during the kids’ swimming lessons, I slowly started having issues again.  Fortunately, I also knew that the Bionaire Air Purifier was on its way.  It was just a matter of days…

IMG_8106When I received it I immediately proceeded in unpacking it and plugging it in the living room.   The air purifier has been working all day and night since then.   As I write this it has been over 48 hours since I plugged it.

This mini tower air purifier possess an Allergy Plus Filter.   The tower operates quietly and we barely hear it while we are in the living room.   The goal of this air purifier is to help remove up to 99.99% of airborne allergens such as pollen, dust, mold spores, pet dander and smoke in order to provide relief from irritants in the air. This specific air purifier will trap particles as small as 0.3 microns so you can breathe comfortably.  The bionaire mini tower air purifier came with one filter (purple color).

This specific air purifier has 5 speed settings including turbo and quiet.   The turbo setting will quickly circulate and filter the air in the room while the quiet setting will be preferable for a bedroom during sleeping hours.   You will also find a filter check indicator will let you know when to change the filter which could be very useful if you do not check the filter regularly like suggested in the manual.   Also on the tower you will find an optional ionizer .  What are ions?  Ions are tiny particles that carry a positive or negative charge.  They exist naturally around us.  The negative ions bind themselves with airborne smoke, dust, and pollen to form larger particles that are easier to capture.   This feature will help the process of air purification. 

The mini tower can be positioned in two different ways – you can put it vertically or horizontally depending of where you decide to place it.   It is recommended for small rooms up to 93 sq. ft. 

Another interesting feature for the Bionaire mini tower air purifier would be the 12 hour timer for worry free operation.  This function will allow you to program the air purifier to work up to 12 hours.  I have tried the feature for a 4 hours period and the air purifier shut down by itself once the timer was complete.

Now concerning the filter, let me remind you that it is an allergen remover that can destroy viruses, moul spores and fungi and more.   The aer filters are all compatible with this device.    Personally, since we have plug this little device in our living room, I have smelled a difference in the air.  It is as though the air is more pure and I have a better facility to breathe.    Having experience this mini tower air purifier and seen the difference it has made for me for my breathing issues I was having lately, I am seriously considering moving this tower in my bedroom and getting a bigger tower for the living room.  And I would also consider bringing the mini tower at the RV during the summer time.

I am very satisfied with the Bionaire mini tower air purifier.  My breathing seem to have eased a bit with it.   I would recommend it to any allergy suffering person.

AVERY Easy Peel Clear Address Labels

The main reason while I decided to grab the AVERY Easy Peel Address Labels 7663 was not to print labels.  I will tell you the main reason why in a minute.   First let me tell you more about these clear address labels.  Yes you read it well – clear labels.  image

These will give your envelopes a clean, print-on look.  They are permanent labels that will offer aa unique finish to your letters or cards that you send via snail mail.

These labels virtually disappear on colored or textures surfaces and give a professional look.   They would be perfect for special occasions like invitations for a wedding for example.

You can design and print your own personalize labels using the free design and print online software from AVERY.   For more details on the AVERY Easy Peel Address Labels 7663 and quickly print address labels with their online tool go directly on the Avery website .

Now let’s get back to my number one reason why I chose to review these.  You see I have decided to do a special bible journaling for each of my kids.  This year I splurge a bit and bought four NIV Bible Journaling bibles and slowly I am filling their pages with personalized designs.  But when I saw these clear labels, my brain immediately jumped into creative mode.   I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them – I would print a picture of their ultrasound image on it and insert it on the page of Psalm 139 where you can read: “You knit me in my mother’s womb.”  And though I had a bit of issues in printing correctly on the clear label, I love the look that their ultrasound pictures are giving to it.  


Also we do not have an inkjet or a laser printer at home but  a Xerox ColorQube which uses wax instead of ink.  The labels are absolutely stunning!

Whether you desire to print labels on a clear sticker or do just like me in printing photos on them for a special project, the AVERY Easy Peel Clear Address Labels are fabulous!

Soul Coats–Restoration

Cover-smallerSoul Coats Restoration is a coloring book  that depicts biblical scenes and scriptures.   In this book, you will find 64 illustrated scenes that will encourage you and restore your soul as you apply color to them.

The book contains 72 pages through which you will find 56 coloring scenes as well as 9 hand lettered scriptures.   At the end of the book you will also find a scene key providing the biblical section which the images was inspired from.  I think my favorite one is definitively the star over the town of Bethlehem.



The design are simply stunning and awe inspiring.  Some of them will fill the whole page while others will only use part of the page.   I suppose you could add some of your own design in the space in these pages if you would like to personalize it a bit more.  The designs are also very intricate which makes it more suitable for teenagers, young adults or adults alike.

When working through this specific coloring book for adult you will also have the opportunity to go through a study guide that goes with the book.  This study guide is only downloadable when signin up to the Soul Coats newletter.  The study guide has been written so that you can enhance your journey of restoration with thoughtful questions and reflections.

You will also find a page where you can learn more about the creator and the illustrators of this book. 

This new coloring book for adult is will help you spend more time in biblical stories in a different way while taking out your coloring pencils or markers to decorate the page.  Seeing that each person will be different in their choices of colors and such, two friends can use the same book and come up with different art pieces.

Soul Coats – Restoration is a great coloring book with a Christian flair.   It would make a great gift for anyone who desire to have Christian stories and/or scriptures to color.   Perfect Christmas gift for anyone!

Soul Coats – Restoration is available at your favorite bookstore, even on amazon.ca and amazon.com.
