Get a Head Start on Spring Cleaning with @Dyson Ball Vacuum [Review]

Are you thinking about spring cleaning yet?

Alright so we're still in the heavy duty winter, so you may not be thinking of it yet. But just in case you are, and you're staring at your sorry excuse for a vacuum cleaner jammed in a closet, wondering if that will truly get you through to another year, well I have a great new vacuum for you!

It's the Dyson Ball Animal. It's my favorite new thing! This upright vacuum takes care of dirt and even microscopic dust. The ball allows the machine to turn on a dime - MY FAVORITE FEATURE - which means it can handle corners and turns. It includes a variety of tools perfect for handling hair and hard to reach cleaning. It also takes care of 99% of pollen, mold, and bacteria that it keeps trapped in its bin.

My impression of the Dyson Ball Vacuum?

Loving it so far!

When I first received it, it was a bit hard to put together. On a scale of 1 to 10, though, I'd give it about a 5. It's even easier if you read instructions first! Ha ha.One thing that threw me is on my old vacuums, I'm so used to having a lever I press down once the vacuum starts so I can pull back the handle and get to pushing the vacuum around. This didn't have that feature, so at first I wasn't sure what to do once the vacuum went on. After my second try, I was able to pull back the handle easily without needing a lever and use the vacuum as normal.

One of my favorite features was the ball and how smooth maneuvering this vacuum is! Taking turns and corners were easy. I'm so used to the clumsy quality of most vacuums that this was such a lovely surprise! Also I could see how much dirt this picked up. After vacuuming one small room, I got so much dirt. Take a look -

Okay it's a little embarrassing how much that picked up. But it had been a while because my last vacuum broke. So this one is such a winner! I can't wait to see how this lasts me over the years.

Overall this is highly recommended. The price may be higher than what you may usually spend but I think it's worth it. Purchase now on Best Buy for $499.99.

I received the above item s in exchange for my honest review.


  1. Great review. It was good to get the hint on how to use this vacuum when compared to the usual vacuum. I like the compact size.

  2. this sounds like a great product, I would love to have one in my home

  3. I'd love to have a Dyson! I've heard such great things about them. It looks impressive.

  4. I could really use a new vacuum. I have a few that do not work well. This looks super and well made to last.

  5. I was laid off a few months ago, and my wife found a full time job first. This means I took over the housework and have been learning how to clean. Your post is helpful because our vacuum cleaner just died, and I need a new one. It sounds as if this machine will get me through my chores quicker, so thank you!

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum.

I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin.

I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer.

Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repair damage…

5 Recipes Made with Gluten-Free Bagels

When I think of bagels, I don't usually think of things I can make with them outside of my usual go to stuff, like cheese melts, avocado toast and toasted bagel and peanut butter. 
But there are some recipes that take bagels to the next level and I came across some created by "The Greater Knead" bagel company and I absolutely had to share these with you. And I had the chance to try out some of their bagels, but more on that later. First, the tasty bagel goodness.
The Bagel Crumble.

To make this, you take their chocolate bagel (oh yes, I said chocolate), a little oil, and cinnamon and some honey. And from there you chop it up and bake it and cover it with tastiness and put it over ice cream. Just check out this recipe and you'll see why you want it.
French Toast Bites.
If there is anyone out there reading this that remembers how yummy french toast was pre-gluten-free days, I think you should check out this …

What To Do When You Stuck in a Snack Rut [Giveaway Inside!]

Sometimes you can easily get in a rut with food. I know I get that way. The same products are in the store, you have the same lunch ideas, you buy the same snacks, the same everything. I know that it actually can be hard to step outside my comfort zone and try something new.
