Who Knew Cleaning Would Be Trending?

I have been compensated by QVC and ShopStyle for this post, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Staying home is the new normal, and keeping everything clean because of COVID-19 is more important than ever before. Who knew cleaning would be trending in 2020?

I’m excited to share my new Dyson V8 Animal Cordfree Vacuum from QVC. Sweeping has never been easier, and my carpet and floors have never been cleaner.

Just to clarify, we don’t have indoor pets, but you don’t have to have pets to love this cord-free vacuum and all the attachments.

The Dyson V8 Animal Cord-free Vacuum can be purchased now for $399 + free shipping or 6 Easy Pays of $66.50. They’re also offering a 90-Day Extended Return Policy.

The Dyson can be used on carpet and hardwood floors. It has up to 40 minutes of charging power and comes with an easy docking station that I keep in my laundry room.

The Dyson converts to a handheld for stairs, cars, and furniture too. It comes with a crevice tool and other attachments that make it so easy to get in those hard-to-reach places.

When you’re finished vacuuming, it’s easy to get rid of the dirt. Just open it up, and it comes out easily.

Another thing that has come in handy for keeping things clean are these Premium Microfiber Towels by Campanelli. They grab dirt and dust, whether you’re cleaning countertops or windows.

These are on sale at QVC now for $22.98 and come in three color options.

I’m so glad to have extra help with my Dyson V8 vacuum and Microfiber Towels. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it almost makes cleaning fun.

It helps when I can wear a comfortable outfit too, like this top and these leggings both from Susan Lucci. Both pieces are on clearance now on QVC.com.

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to stop by my blog. I’m also on FacebookPinterest, and Instagram.


1. I pray that the next time a friend grabs me and pulls me in for a hug, I actually take the time to appreciate the gift of their embrace.

2. I pray that when school resumes and people are dropping kids off, they take the time to thank the staff for the amazing gift that they give to our community.

3. I pray that the next time I’m sitting in a crowded restaurant, I take the time to look around at the smiling faces, loud voices, and thank God for the gift of community.

4. I pray that the next time I’m standing in church listening to the voices of praise and worship that I take a moment to thank God for the gift of congregation.

5. I pray that the next time I see a person or situation that needs prayer, I hope I pray as passionately and fervently as I have these past few weeks.

6. I pray that when I am at the grocery store that I take a moment to thank God that He provides us with the necessities of life and the amazing people who work so hard to keep us supplied.

7. I pray that I never again take for granted the ability to hop in the car and visit a friend, go to the mall, go to a gathering, etc.

So, the truth is, I don’t want things to return to the way they once were. I pray that we take the lessons and challenges of the past few weeks and create a new normal.

My goal is to pray more, love harder, and truly appreciate the daily abundance of blessings that were so easily overlooked just a mere few weeks ago.

Be Blessed Today! -Natalie Oldham

  1. Love that devotion! I feel exactly the same! What cleaning product is in your blue bottle? Does it disinfect?

      1. Hi Cyndi
        I love your blog! Most of all I love your devotions!!! Also I love my Dyson Dc10 stock vacuum! It is the absolute best on my tile floors!!! My question is when you vacuum a rug do you change the amount of suction!? Also I would love to know where you got the blue glass spray bottle? I use thieves and all of young living products too! Thanks so much! Sending you a virtual hug!!!! Elizabeth

    1. Cyndi,
      I really appreciated the lovely prayer you shared. I plan to share with others! We all need to remember God’s many blessings daily. Thank you!

    2. Oh I think that Dyson would make a great Mother’s Day gift 💝
      I just loved the BFTh and wish you would post it on FB so I can share with my family and friends.

  2. Thank you for those prayers at the end . I needed that today . The stay at home is getting to me , yesterday was bad and now because of what I read in those prayers , today will be better . Thanks, and you have a blessed day .

    1. We’ve used a Kirby for many years and decided to try out a Dyson a couple years ago. We LOVE our Dyson, the suction is incredible. An interesting side note, I heard Dyson started making medical equipment during this Pandemic of Coronavirus! What an amazing company!

  3. We have two dogs and the Dyson is the BEST! We waited for it to go on sale and purchased the one you have for our main level and the “roller ball” on for our upstairs and downstairs levels (we are in a walk out).

      1. I had the V7 and liked it. It couldn’t keep up with our Golden Retriever’s hair though. Just got the newly launched V11. OMG! No comparison!! It’s fabulous.

  4. Happy Friday!
    Since we are all home I’m searching for a new paint color. Do you know what color is on the wall in your first picture today? I love it!!
    Thanks for the uplifting posts!

    1. I have the Dyson vacuum and it has been a game changer for me! So light and easy to use! I also have purchased a Bissel Powerfresh steam mop that I absolutely love. I feel confident that my tile floors ,as well as, my hardwood floors are clean and sanitatized using this steam mop. It is very light and doesn’t hurt my back to use. Thought I would pass that along.

      1. I have a similar Dyson that I ordered from QVC as well. It works great. I had to have the battery replaced after a couple of months, but Dyson was easy to work with. It’s much better than dragging a canister vac around.

  5. My body type is inverted triangle. Really wise shoulders, no waist, small hips. I’d love to see fashion ideas for my body type.

  6. BFTH today was spot on. Appreciate your posts every day and your spiritual messages. I will print off BFTH today and put it on my frig as a reminder of what our take away from this whole experience needs to be.

  7. Bought first Dyson when first came out and own 4 of them and gave kids each one for Christmas…love Dyson

  8. I have a dyson like that and love it. I was amazed how much stuff came up from my carpets the first few times I used it. Guess my other vaccumm wasn’t doing the job. I got mine on a Black Friday sale 2 yrs ago through dyson and so glad I did. Mines not animal model but V8 and same color. Happy cleaning. Good luck on your landscaping.

  9. Our sons girlfriend got a Dyson Vacuum for Christmas and loves it.. We have central vac and all hardwood floors. It’s been a long time since I’ve owned a vacuum cleaner. A great BFTH today . I’m being thankful for so much more today than I think I was before this. May we all take away something from these days we find ourselves in❤️

  10. I see you have Hardwood floors, was wondering what you use to clean them.
    I’ve tried several items, but they still look dull.

    1. Bona is a good all-natural product that cleans & adds shine to hardwood floors. I don’t know where you live, but in Canada, I buy it at Home Depot.

  11. Oh no – the Dyson is no longer available. I’m sure they are available on Amazon other stores. Love BFTH.
    BYW do you have anything to do with the size type of these comments from our end? I think the font must 2 or 3 – it is soooo tiny on my screen.

    1. Love this vacuum cleaner! You’re right, it must make cleaning fun because my husband has vacuumed our house every day since we got it. We bought ours locally at a nationwide home improvement store that begins with “L”. (Not sure I can mention store names here.) I was skeptical. It looks like there’s not much to it. How could it clean? But I thought it would be okay to pick up the odd lint or crumbs between “real cleanings”. When we brought it home my husband plugged it in to charge it. As soon as it was ready he did our living room carpet with it. I was shocked. Just a couple of hours before I had vacuumed with our expensive, highly rated canister vacuum cleaner. The Dyson V8 Animal picked up so much that our other cleaner left behind. And It’s so light and easy to use. This is beginning to sound like a commercial. It’s definitely not. I’m just really happy with the vacuum cleaner. We use it on the “extended run” setting and can do the entire first floor, powder room, back hall, kitchen, dining room, foyer, and 15 x 20 ft living room on one charge. The only thing someone might not like is that it might have to be emptied one or more times during vacuuming if they have pets that shed a lot. On the other hand, there’s no stopping to clean out the hose because it got plugged up with fur. Emptying it is very quick and easy. I read your blog every day. Thank you for always including Beauty For The Heart.

  12. Hello from Massachusetts where it is cold and they say snow tonight😂!
    My fashion struggle is my petite size! There are very few selections in stores or online for fashion conscious petite women. Shopping has become a challenge not a pleasure. You always look amazing! I look forward to BFTH. Especially now during this challenging time. Stay well💐

  13. I love the cordless Dysons! We have (3)…kitchen, craft room, office. We also have a regular Dyson that we use all over the house.

  14. Love you post about your Dyson vacuum I have one and love it for just a quick run though the house to get the dog hair.

    Please include apple type in what to wear.

    I loved “I pray we don’t go back to normal”.

    Thank you,


  15. I live in Lexington. I’ll help model! Haha Yes Busty-that’s me absolutely. Big on top, small on the bottom. I love the high-waisted pants because it covers the muffin top.

  16. Thank you for your “Beauty for the Heart” on this post. It was moving & uplifting …. just what I needed, and probably others, Right now. Thank you.
