Dyson never ceases to amaze me in their design and quality of vacuums. The DC50s are here and imagine they started on the DC01 in 1993.  I really have to tell you I’ve been a Dyson user since they first came out. As a longtime multi-pet owner, I have to say I used to go through some vacuums. I Instead of buying a $79 or $99 model each year, I splurged on a Dyson DC07 Animal paying top dollar back then.  After all, not just any vacuum can survive pet hair, chewed up dog toys, shredded socks and cat litter. Ironically, the DC07’s have really held their value.

My earliest Dyson Animal 07 is still working great believe it or not.  All these years I’ve never had to buy a new vacuum, so how if the vacuums are so good, is Dyson making money? That’s because once you are a Dyson believer, you are going to convert everyone you know.  Since Dyson keeps upgrading to sleek new and efficient designs, I’ve been forced to buy reconditioned models of DC07 to gift to my mother-in-law and my brother since I raved about mine so much.  We are also using one in our company workshop in place of a shop vac believe it or not (it can’t suck up water but does a wonder on dust and dirt).   Dyson refurbished models are littered all over Ebay, and often come with standard one year warranties.  If you choose to trade in or up at Dyson’s official site, they give you a 20%  trade in savings.

I recently splurged on the DC50 for when I want to clean fast and it’s very lightweight.  I splurged on the pet grooming tool from HSN and have two of my dogs as takers. The third is still trying to get over the sound of the vacuum itself.  For those of you who feel Dyson is too complicated or overwhelming, AskDyson on Youtube gives you the advantage of showing you how to use and assemble versus their user guides which seem to be very Ikea-like in style.

For me, I’m a believer.  I am wondering if my Dyson will outlive even me someday. Thanks James Dyson. You rock.

Editor Update: As of 10/24/16 I am still using my Animal, but the roller mechanism for carpet kept getting stuck. I found a video on Youtube to help clean it and voila works again!

Black and white rock and roll nails they call them, and they are for any fashionista who wants to go though this four step process to get them. It looks a lot easier than it is, considering you have only a one inch palette to work on, if you are lucky.

Home Decorators TV Stand

From the Home Decorators Collection:  The above TV Cabinet looks more like an old library or apothecary cabinet if you ask me. It features 2 shelves and 15 small storage cubbies perfect for games, dvd’s or Cd’s. Hide your clutter and your living room will look neat, forever.  My favorite however is the more distressed look of the one below: The Holbrook!

ECO ALERT:  The Holbrook is an eco friendly alternative. It doesn’t just look old, it is old. According to the website, it’s “made of reclaimed and recycled materials.. ”  With its weathered, rustic look, you don’t have to try to find a vintage piece of furniture to fit in — you have one.

Which is your favorite?
