For those of you who have been with me since the beginning (my OGs), it is well documented that I am loyal to the designers and brands that I love. I’ll experiment and venture out but I tend to deviate back to my tried and true. And this is something that holds true, not just for fashion, but also for all aspects of my life.

I’ve been a Dyson user since I purchased my condo (over a decade ago), so when I unwrapped the Dyson V8 Absolute Cord-free Cordless Vacuum for Christmas; needless to say I was pumped. Moe and I (along with baby girl and fur babies x 2) recently moved into a home so an upgraded version of our trusty vacuum could not have been more ideal for us.

The Dyson V8 Absolute includes both a soft roller cleaner head, perfect for cleaning debris (big and small) off hard surfaces and a direct-drive cleaner head, perfect for carpet cleaning. This is super practical for Luca’s precious shag rug in her room, which is delicate but lets face it, gets dirty.

Once charged up, I can easily vacuum the entire house (battery lasts up to 40 minutes). And the fact that the vacuum weighs under 6lbs is ideal for totting around a baby while vacuuming. Also, super random but practical for all the baby and fur moms out there, the sound of the vacuum does not cause anyone to freak out which is clearly a score.

Additional fun facts: the V8 Absolute transforms into a handheld so cleaning out the car is ridiculously simple and eliminates the need for a dust buster (yay for multifunctions!). And it features HEPA filtration to capture allergens and expel cleaner air (certified asthma and allergy friendly).

It is clear that my priorities have shifted in the last little while, as normally I’d be gushing about fashion and beauty related gifts I love (and don’t get me wrong, I am still a fashion fiend through and through), but I really had to share this gift because I’ve been a ride or die of this brand for so long and the Dyson V8 Absolute vacuum is totally note worthy. xo
