awesome Oreck Magnesium review and giveaway!!


THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED TO NEW ENTRIES. CONGRATULATIONS #40, EM S. PLEASE EMAIL ME WITHIN 48 HOURS OR I WILL SELECT A NEW WINNER.


I am ridiculously excited to share with you my new vacuum cleaner. I recently received the Brand New Oreck Magnesium Vacuum Cleaner and I may or may not have done a giddy little dance when it arrived on my doorstop. Who am I kidding?, I TOTALLY did a giddy little dance when it arrived.

But wait! I'm not going to just sit here and brag about how awesome my new vacuum cleaner is...(which it TOTALLY is). Well, actually I am going to brag about how awesome my new vacuum cleaner is, but I'm also going to give one of you the chance to win the same awesome vacuum cleaner! 

Seriously. First, look at this baby. 
(see what I did there? you don't know if I'm referring to Charlie or my new Oreck)...he he.


I love the simplicity of it. One easy button turns it on, adjusts the speed (high or low) and turns it off.
Charlie likes that it's not "too loud".


I love how TALL the handle is. My husband can vacuum with this thing, and he's 6' 5". No more excuses about not wanting to bend over to vacuum!

But also? It is SUPER light. Like I vacuumed my entire downstairs as well as the stairs themselves and didn't get the slightest bit sweaty. It handled my hardwood floors AND my carpets perfectly. I'm kind of in love.


Plus it just plain looks cool.


But WAIT! There's more! (I feel like one of those as seen on tv commercials)...
It also came with the New Ultimate Handheld Vac!
This little guy is perfect for cleaning stairs, furniture (think under the sofa cushions), car interiors, window coverings, cobwebs, etc etc etc!


So easy a super cute and adorable toddler can use it!


Cleaning is serious business. Obviously.


Next Grace wanted her turn. Have you ever had kids fighting over who gets to do the chores? This was a first for me! I think I'll just put my feet up and eat bon bons!

  1. I learned it's the lightest. Which is a big deal, our tiny house still has 3 levels!

  2. OH I SOOOOOO badly need a GOOD vacuum it seems they never seem to last in my house so currently I am the vacuum. I'll say I do have better arms for it BUT wouldn't a little help rock & what I learned was to the Magnesium moves smoothly across all floor types using appropriate power levels: high for carpets and low for hardwoods and tile & THIS is just what I need. Thanks for the chance.
