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…

The Best Gluten-Free Soup I've Had in a Long Time (And Giveaway]

​​​​​​​​ Since I've been gluten-free it isn't always to figure out easy lunch solutions. I'm not a huge fan of frozen options and I really don't think I've found the perfect, consistently amazing lunch time bread. And soups? Well, I haven't found my favorite soups yet either. Until now.
So I had the chance to try out Blount's Soups! I tried two different kinds - 
Tomato Bisque

Broccoli Cheddar

Here's what I thought:
The Good:
Theses soups are non-gmo, organic, and gluten-free. First, the tomato bisque. I found this tasted so good. I like when Tomato Soup is on the creamy side. And this was! I'm never a fan when tomato soup has more of a ketchupy, liquidy tomato flavor. But when it really tastes like a soup? Oh yum! 
For the Broccoli Cheddar, it may not have been as thick and creamy and cheesy as I usually love about Broccoli Cheddar, it was still really tasty. I just needed a bit more salt. 
The Not so Good
You know, not like I'm trying to avoid a…

Why You Should Buy Organic Coffee [and Giveaway]

I'm always on the organic route when I go into a grocery store, but I have only just recently heard that we really should be drinking organic coffee. I never really thought of this before and didn't realize the importance of choosing organic coffee until now.

One major reasons to drink organic coffee?

You avoid a good majority of the pesticides.

This is the main reason I choose organic produce. Did you know that coffee is known to be one of the most heavily sprayed crops? While many argue the roasting process eliminates the pesticide residue, this still doesn't leave warm feelings in my coffee pot about what the coffee bean could entail. (SOURCE)

It's also environmentally beneficial. Many conventional growers will clear out forests to make room for their crops. This eliminates natural pest killers like birds and other creatures and this leads to more pesticide use. Organic coffee is grown more naturally, maintaining the forest life in the surrounding area.
