My husband and I have been married for over 13 years now and through the years, we’ve gone through a few vacuums. The very first vacuum we purchased together was the name brand “no loss of suction vacuum” that was several hundred dollars! That vacuum lasted us about 8 or 9 years. When it came time to buy a new one, I did not have the several hundred dollars to spend, so I opted for the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Vacuum. Compared to using the other brand, the Shark Navigator was so much lighter and easier to maneuver in a small apartment. As apartment dwellers, we don’t have space to spare for huge vacuums!
When my husband and I first got married, we replaced our hand-me-down vacuum with the expensive “no loss of suction vacuum.” We did it because we wanted a powerful vacuum and not worry about replacing vacuum bags. Fast forward about 8 or 9 years and we find we need to replace the expensive vacuum! However, this time around, we don’t have the hundreds of dollars to buy the expensive vacuum. Thankfully, there was an alternative to the expensive vacuum. There is another “no loss of suction vacuum” on the market and I bought the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Vacuum. I am very happy with the Shark Navigator and so thankful there is an alternative.
I used to make healthy protein shakes but due to budget, I started making smoothies instead. I enjoy a smoothie at least once a day. Over the years, I have used several blenders. First, I used one that my mom gave me and when that broke down, my husband bought me a new one. I also acquired one through blog. Blenders vary in their blending results. Unfortunately, I have experienced uneven smoothies, too thick smoothies and unblended fruit at the bottom.
My husband and I love our coffee! My husband has always been a coffee drinker long before we started dating. I only preferred iced coffee for the longest time. When we were dating, we even had a few coffee dates. It was nice to enjoy a cup of coffee and some quiet time. As parents, we rarely experience those quiet moments.
My husband and I have always liked having the best of things that we can afford. We fell in love with the Dyson brand because their products offer “no loss of suction” cleaning. Since I do the majority of the cleaning, I wanted the best! Our first vacuum we bought together was a Dyson that lasted about 10 years or so. When our Dyson died, I chose another brand that I love just as much and still have that vacuum. When I saw the Dyson cordless vacuum, I was curious as to how well it would work for us considering we live in a nice size apartment. I consider it to be the perfect amount of space for us. Our apartment works for us and that is all that matters.
We love going to Walt Disney World! When our son was a baby, we always had a Disney movie or cartoon on. Now that he’s old enough to use the remote control, he still enjoys watching Disney movies. I still remember the first time going to Walt Disney World. Since it wasn’t my husband’s first time at Disney, he knew exactly where to go. He also knew the area as he lived there for several years. His parents also worked at the park! Every time we go to Disney, I take a ton of pictures. I received a GoPro Hero to review in exchange for my honest opinion.

When I was asked to review the John Frieda Full Volume Dryer, I quickly accepted. I have two hair dryers. I have a mini one that I have had forever that is on its last leg. The second one is meant to be used in the summer time because it uses cool air to dry hair. I received the John Frieda Full Volume Dryer to review in exchange for my honest opinion.
