The Most Comfortable & Thinnest Men's Wallets from Allett - Holiday Gift Guide Review & Giveaway - ends 12/12 US


My husband has been dreaming of finding a comfortable wallet for years.  The one that he did have was a tri-fold.  It met his needs, but was a big bulk of a wallet in his front pocket.  He won't put a wallet in his back pocket due to it hurts his back when he sits on it.  Now he has a very comfortable wallet that fits so well in his front pocket and you can hardly tell that it's even in there from Allett.

Since 1995, Allett has been making thin style wallets in San Diego, California.  They started with a dream of making a think wallet that would also be comfortable to keep in a pocket.  It sounds like my husband isn't the only man who does not like a bulky big wallet in his pocket.


With so many thanks to Allett for sending me one of their Men's Classic Leather Original thin wallet to review for Royalegacy's Holiday Gift Guide, I am able to testify that an Allett wallet does live up to being the most thinnest wallet in the world.


This thin wallet will actually hold up to 24 cards, with cash, and room for larger papers like receipts.  We were both surprised that with the four slots inside the wallet that it actually could hold that many cards and still be thin when fully closed.  Because of the positions of the cards, the wallet is flexible in a pocket making it even more comfortable.


It can hold six cards in each slot, and none of them slip out.  Inside the slots are enhanced rubber to grip the cards in place.


The interior lining is made of SoftTech nylon.  It is designed to wick moisture away.  When we first got the wallet, it was still a bit warm out here in the desert, so my husband is able to say that the contents did keep dryer.


The billfold area has two different pockets.  Because the wallet is longer than your average wallet, Allett designed the wallet to have two separate area.  One is about half the depth of the wallet for bills, and the other is the whole depth of the wallet for larger receipts and other things.


I can give my husband a full sheet of paper folded twice, such as a shopping list, and it fits perfectly.  He does like the capability of this wallet being able to hold larger receipts.


The outside of the wallet is made of Napa leather which is noted for its soft supple feel and long lasting durability.  Instead of wearing out, the Napa leather will develop a beautiful patina over time.  The Napa leather grain also breathable, and will produce less moisture in a pocket while also allowing for a faster drying time.

The only thing that my husband wishes was different about the wallet is that he would have liked a see-through opening for his driver's license.  He doesn't care that he has to take that out to show people from time to time, he just prefers to open his wallet for that.


The Classic Leather Original Wallet comes in a choice of two colors, black and brown (which my husband wanted).   Purchase the Classic Leather Original Wallet at Allett for only $34.95.


Do you know of someone who could use a new wallet for Christmas?
Allett also carries an assortment of thin women's wallets, RFID Security Wallets, and RFID Passport wallets.  Each comes in a handsome gift box ready to be wrapped.

The definition of American style is showcased within each product and carried out within the satisfaction of each customer.

Ozeri 3x Tower Fan (44") with Passive Noise Reduction Technology - Review


I know it's winter and this is not the season to be touting the benefits of a fan, but is it?  Did you that there are benefits to using a fan in winter?  Using a fan on low speed at a safe distance in front of a wood burning stove or a gravity heater can move the warm air through a room.  A tower fan from Ozeri is the best way to move that warmth throughout a room.


Featuring unrivalled technology, the new Ozeri 3x 44" Tower Fan defines the latest in stylistic innovation and digital décor with its visually stunning design, slim form factor and elegant glass base stand.  At less than 3 inches thick, the 3x Tower fan is one of the world's thinnest fans and has 3 independently controllable fans with passive noise cancellation technology for remarkable airflow velocity at less than 50 decibels.  The upgraded canted fan blades that utilize the physics of blade curvature to generate opposing sound waves to reduce blade noise and isolate the soothing sounds of the airflow itself.  Believe me, you can hardly hear this fan is even going.


There are so many different settings and modes to this fan.  Like I said earlier, putting it just on low speed at a safe distance from your gravity heat source would really spread the heat around the room, but there are so many different types of low you can have.  The 90 degree whisper-quiet oscillation for optimal air circulation will give you timely relief on a sweltering summer day or for refreshing circulation all year long - including moving warm air.  To control, simply touch the sensitive LED control panel or the long range remote.


The handheld remote is excellent to use when you are comfortably sitting or in bed.  It gives you the same functions as what is on the LED panel on the fan.  The remote stores in the back of the fan which also doubles as a hand hold to move the fan.

The glass base is super sturdy and makes this tower fan one of the most firm standing fans on the market.  The 3x Tower fan features a dismountable design that only requires the hand assembly of fan base using an included large nut, with no tools required.  It is super simple to put together.


Another great feature of this fan is the programmable timer.  There are 3 preprogrammed airflow patterns designed to foster sleep, relaxation and comfort.  You can program the fan to stay on for up to 7.5 hours and in half hour increments.  So you can put it on before you go to bed, and have it shut off sometime in the middle of the night.


If you have gravity heat and would like to move the air around the room more quickly and efficiently, then the Ozeri 3x Tower Fan (44") with Passive Noise Reduction Technology would be the perfect choice to get right now as it is currently on sale.   Purchase the Ozeri 3x Tower Fan at Amazon for only $99.95 (marked down from $129.95).  Need a new fan for next summer?  It does make perfect sense to buy one now off-season before the price goes up again.

Chase the Winter Blues Away with the Happy Light Liberty 5K Energy Lamp From Verilux - Review and Giveaway - ends 12/7 US


It looks like we are headed for more cold wintery weather this year and that means lots of cloud cover.  The sun is going to be hidden quite often this year, and did you know that less exposure to those wonderful rays increases the chances of getting the winter blues.

Even though I do live in an area of abundant sunshine year round, my daughter lives in a state that gets cold and cloudy all winter.  She complained last winter that she does feel different living there instead of here in the desert.  She loses energy, focus, and feels a bit blah.  This year it's going to be different for her as she will be getting the Happy Light Liberty 5K from mom for an early Christmas present.


Verilux has designed a lamp that is just for chasing away those winter blues.  What's so special about it?  The light inside!  Less available natural light in the winter months can result in the winter blues, sleeplessness, and lack of focus and concentration. Your eyes have photoreceptors, including one called melanopsin that helps set the body's natural cycles and is triggered by a specific , narrow spectrum of natural light. Most artificial light sources do not provide light in the range to most efficiently stimulate melanopsin. All Verilux energy lamps - including the Liberty 5K - emulate key spectrums of natural light to effectively set the body's internal clock to improve mood, energy and well-being.


Light therapy is a great way to improve your mood and energy levels over the winter or if you are always indoors all day year round.  The natural spectrum of light that you get from the Happy Light Liberty is comparable to daylight only UV free.  This is the perfect way to feel better as there are no drugs involved, just light.  The Verilux Liberty 5K is the perfect compact light that you can take anywhere with you to banish those blues, increase your energy, alertness and concentration.  It will also help with jet lag to get you ready for work much more quickly.



The light output from this small of a light is quite amazing.  The 5K refers to the 5000 LUX of light energy it emits.  The Optix Lens over the special 26 watt florescent UV free bulb filters and diffuses the light to reduce glare and eye fatigue.


Even though my daughter and her family are going to get the all benefits from this light, I did set it up in the bedroom near my bed for several days.  I used it to read by.  The light was nice and bright to be next to, but not over powering and hurting my eyes.  I don't know if it improved my mood or not since we haven't had a cloudy day for months, but I feel more energetic than usual.


Are you in a part of the country that stays quite drab during the winter, and you feel that same way?  Perhaps the winter brings on low energy, you always feel tired, and just out of sync with everything?  Then Winter Blue BEGONE!  Get the Happy Light Liberty 5K at Verilux for only $39.95.  The small compact design (6" x 7" x 3") makes it easy to take with you to help beat those blues anywhere. It's luggage friendly.

Is there someone on your gift list that suffers from the winter blues, low energy, or a jet setter that is always suffering from jet lag?  Offering them a chance at light therapy would be a great gift!  Plus, the Verilux Happy Light Liberty 5K is very reasonably priced.


Verilux is a proud sponsor of Royalegacy's 2014 Holiday Gift Guide, and is offering to one of my readers a chance to win a Happy Light Liberty 5K Energy Lamp (arv: $40).  Thank you, Verilux!  This giveaway is open to US residents 18+ only, and will end on December 7, 2014.
