The Dyson Technology Experience: Keep Cool In Style!


I was invited to the Dyson Technology Experience this weekend at the Gold Coast Art Fair in Grant Park. I was not about to miss an opportunity to check out the Air Multiplier™ fans and see if a bladeless fan could truly deliver a nice cool breeze.

Look Ma, No Blades!!!

By Saturday afternoon, the weather had already reached the upper 80s with a steadily rising heat index. The sun was scorching and don’t even get me started on the humidity!

When I got to Grant Park, I could not find the Dyson demonstration quick enough. As I entered the Dyson tent, I was met by a blast of cool air from one of the pedestal fans. I walked around to see the other models and was surprised by how cool it was inside the tent.

As everyone knows, traditional fans do nothing more than blow the hot air around but this was not the case with the Air Multiplier™. It was as if there was a cooling system built within. I spoke with one of the reps who explained how the fans work. The bladeless Air Multiplier™ draws air in through a mixed flow impeller – a combination of the technologies used in turbochargers and jet engines.

Pretty impressive! Everyone inside the tent was excited about the fans. One little girl asked her dad if the fans were magic. Don’t you just love the questions kids ask? Another small child had a curious look on her face as she slowly raised her hand to feel the air. I could tell she wanted to stick her hand in the Air Multiplier™ but was afraid to do so. One of the friendly reps assured her the fan was safe as he stuck his hand inside. She followed his lead and looked completely amazed.

If you have small children or pets the Air Multiplier™ would work well in your home and is so worth the investment.

For the summer of 2011, Dyson is continuing to cement its place as the leading technology company in design and development. I definitely think they are an industry leader. The products are like none on the market. The Dyson Technology Experience is a great way to learn more about Dyson products.

Haute Bag Lady Bag of the Week: Canvas & Leather Totes

Sturdy canvas gets trimmed in cool leather to make the most stylish bags of the season!

Cooperative Canvas Bucket Bag
This week's Haute Bag is the current and so apropos for the season, canvas and leather tote. I saw a few styles on Nikia aka ChiTown Fashionista's blog.

In the early part of spring when I began planning my summer wardrobe, I added a canvas and leather tote to my shopping list. To date I have yet to add one to my bag family. Trust me, that will change sooner rather than later.

I am coveting two by Urban Outfitters (the leather is faux or vegan, if you're a hipster, lol!).

Deena & Ozzy Chain Tote
I love the casual cool of canvas and leather totes. They can work with a variety of looks and judging by the size, they would make great work and travel bags.

Hayden Harnett's Ibiza Flight Tote has always been a personal favorite.
