Editor's note: For our last week at Style Lush, I've asked the writers to share both a favorite post by another writer, from over the last three years, and a favorite post of their own. You'll see these posts linked to at the top of their new post for the week. Enjoy a stroll down Lush memory lane!
I kind of can't believe I am writing my final post for Style Lush right now, I've been here from the beginning, so selecting a favorite post of mine, or anyone else's, through all this time is proving too difficult for me in light of the reality of this being my final post. I have found so many wonderful products, artists, musicians and friends through this site (and Food Lush as well) thank you for allowing us the opportunity to be a part of your world.
If A'Dell tells you that the chocolate cake at Costco is THE BEST and that you should go get some, you should probably believe her, because she's serious about that chocolate cake and she's right, of course. And if A'Dell gives good reviews on a Roomba? Well then maybe you should go get one because she's probably right about that too. At least, her review sure makes a convincing enough argument to maybe push two people already looking at a Roomba right over the edge into buying one. See, we are really committing to making changes (large, machine based changes) for my health needs this year and we thought maybe this might help tackle the never ending cycle of dust and debris the dogs love to track in from the yard. Now, we have a Dyson and it has served us admirably for years
but the lure of something that could be running while I was doing something else? Something that could run everyday (because let's face it, that is not happening with the heavy and cumbersome Dyson)? The lure is very strong indeed.
A lure we were unable to avoid, thanks to Costco having a great price on a special version apparently only they offer which comes with extra filters and extra brushes, definitely a great deal. Obviously you can tell Mayday (the dog in the photos above) was much more concerned about this thing than she is the Dyson (and yes, it was running in that top photo while she was sleeping in the sun) and the Roomba "chased" Maddie (our other dog) around the kitchen for a bit, she was--unthrilled.
I, however, am THRILLED with this little thing. Yesterday I was able to swiffer, spray paint a piece of furniture, run a load of a laundry and take a shower WHILE my floors were being vaccumed. It was fantastic. So far we are keeping the Roomba for the main parts of the house and the Dyson for our bedroom because our spoiled princesses each have full-sized comforters on the floor on either side of our bed and I don't want to deal with picking that up each time but maybe someday they'll deign to have dog beds.
It's so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up*
