Why My Husband Doesn’t Mind If I Have a Mistress- Dyson Review

My new Dyson rocks!

And that mistress has a name.
Dyson Animal.

Able to suck up food my children leave on every livin’ space of my home in a single bound.
Oh yes, it is not only a vacuum.
It is a superhero.

I love my new Dyson!

Meet the Dyson Digital Slim DC59 Animal.
If you didn’t already know this about me, you will now.
I am a neat freak.
Constantly wiping surfaces, scrubbing orifices and sanitizing everything living and non-living in its path.
The bane of my existence when it comes to cleaning has always been floors.
Especially in the winter.
I probably spend a good hour and a half a week JUST cleaning and vacuuming the floors.
It is right about now that you are realizing we can’t be friends, isn’t it?

So when I got the chance to visit the Dyson offices in Chicago in December with my bestie Marianne, I was stoked.
It was like the cleaning mother ship was calling me home.
I felt like I was going to the White House.
Or Graceland.
Yes, more Graceland than the White House.

This you need to know, I have never owned a Dyson before.

I am aware I am somewhat of an anomaly at least with those who I am close to.
Meaning I am basically the only person I know who doesn’t have a Dyson.
I mean, I knew they were supposed to be faboo and all but I had no clue.
In the dark as it pertains to floor cleaning and maintenance, apparently.

Until I got to test run one at the offices in December.
It was like one of those movies where the people are on the beach running in slow motion towards each other.
It felt like that.
I had that moment.
With a vacuum cleaner.

So when on the coldest day recorded in Chicago history, this landed on my doorstep, I was giddy.

My new Dyson!

The Animal.

I spent exactly one hour, the day it arrived,  hitting every single nook and cranny of my home with this baby.
I may have even been so giddy that I danced with my Dyson.
Noooo I didn’t take any pictures.
OF COURSE I took pictures.


This puppy sucked the crap off every livin’ space in my home.
I couldn’t believe how much junk it was picking up.
For a neat freak that was exhilarating and a little upsetting all at once.

It even provides a little wind machine that led to an impromptu photo shoot:

Only Dyson makes me do pictures like this!

Little known fact- I have never EVER been able to look sexy.
While trying to look sexy.

It always looks like this:


look at me being a supermodel Dyson!



You can detach this puppy at the top to create a cool hand held vacuum for those hard to reach spaces.
I am not doing it justice though.

Disclosure: I received a Dyson vacuum at no expense but these words and ideas are all mine.

    That last picture is blogger gold. I didn't even want a new vacuum,but then I saw that picture of your sexy wind-swept look with something in your eye and now I NEED a Dyson. So you can tell them that they should totally pick you as a brand ambassador…

      You NEED one!
      Filling out the fake paperwork to make myself the ambassador now……

    You crack me up!
    Love, love my Dyson. I've had it for 3 years and I'm still in love with it.I get excited when the clear container gets filled up with lint, dust bunnies etc. Weird? Yes. Totally.

    We have a Dyson, and we love it. This animal thing looks pretty neat-o though. (yes, I just say Neat-o, you're welcome).

    That's purely amazing. You know how to rock a photo shoot with a vacuum cleaner. LOVE our Dyson.

    I don't even have a vacuum. Not a real one – I have a shop vac. And I rarely use it. My entire house is hardwood flooring. I use a broom. I now find myself wanting a Dyson!

    I laughed out loud when I read, "It is right about now that you are realizing we can't be friends, isn't it?" because I was thinking exactly that! You will just have to love me AND my dust bunnies! 🙂

    My Dysons are consistently full of dog hair, whiich is much better than my house being full of dog hair. Now all I need is a Dyson that does not require me to stand behind it and I'm all set.

    Have you used the spider-sucking extension bit that also sucks up cobwebs in the corner of your living room??? The sh*t is THE BOMB!! Love you, love your Dyson.

    OMG, a Dyson virgin? Who would have thunk. I seriously love mine. I have had it for four years and every time I vacuum I still have to show my husband how much crap is in the dirt bin thingie. It still amazes me!
