Dyson and gone to heaven

There are few appliances that wow me. (Which in itself could be weird - that appliances wow me at all and/or that I'm so darn picky I only like such a small selection.) You may remember my love post written to Keurig last year. That little machine has revolutionised coffee in our household & I'm still every bit in love today as I was when I wrote that post 13 months ago.

Then there is my KitchenAid mixer. While I haven't professed my love in writing before now, I can assure you that it holds a special place in my heart, stomach and kitchen. Cakes, cookies, bread, pie oh my! This mixer has never failed me.

Onto my latest appliance crush - my brand new shiny yellow and gray Dyson DC14. Man this thing really SUCKS! (No really. It's a vacuum so it's supposed to.) Like most people I was hesitant to believe the hype. Especially when factored with the price, but a frugalista like me waited for just the right sale before making my move.













It was worth every one of those 29,900 pennies.

I was amazed (and slightly repulsed) by all the dust it picked up. Considering we vacuum once a week and I vacuumed with our old (crap ass) machine before using my Dyson one would think it wouldn't have much work to do. But that machine worked it's brush rotating magic on my floors like no other.

I promptly added it to my "cannot live" without list. What's on yours?

**These products mentioned in my post were bought by me. No one has paid me to pimp any of them out but machines of this magnitude deserve to be recognized. Of course if any one of these companies would like to send me some free stuff for my obvious loyalty, I wouldn't turn it down. Hint, hint...

Something I have always hating spending money on...vaccuum cleaners! I am glad you like it...I would love to get rid of ALL of my carpet and never have to have one again. :)

Enjoy!

We have had a dyson for years. They are rather amazing. And yes, it's disgusting the amount of stuff they suck up. And like Amy, I would love to get rid of ALL of the carpet in my house. But I'd still need my dyson!

I'm scared as to what I'd see it pick up from my carpets...

yeesh.

I've always wondered if the all the Dyson hype was really deserved (especially considering the price tag). I'm glad to get an honest review! Now that we're in a house with carpet (and a long haired dog), I need to look into the Dyson Pet.

I am in love with my Dyson as well. I have the pink and grey one.

Super awesome!

I love my Kitchenaide as well, I thought I had broken it this year and I almost cried.

As for a Keurig, I don't drink coffee and I still think it would be sweet to have one, but I can't justify it because using it for hot cocoa seems kind of dumb with the price point.
